We were here 3 years ago. My 8/15 review gives a more detailed, still accurate description of the park. As noted in that review, this KOA had a lot of the expected recreational amenities (pool, playground, etc.) for families. For me, the biggest change is the $10+ increase in rates. We again had a level, pull through, FHU site that had cable TV and, as requested, was satellite friendly. The Wi-Fi was good enough for our minimal (e-mail and web surfing) needs. The bathrooms and laundry facilities were clean. The bathrooms might be inadequate if all the tent site are occupied. The staff was friendly and helpful. I still see just aluminum can recycling. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Motorhome.

I've stayed at this park before. Don't remember it being so pricey. I had to use my long extension cord because the electric box was on the other side. Luckily, for the first time, I brought the extension cord. Site was almost level. No shade. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Motorhome.

This campground is easily accessed off I-90 Exit 106. Despite its proximity to the highway, it is remarkably quite most of the time. The staff is very friendly. The campground clean and well-maintained. While I recognize that it is "in season", it is a bit pricey (the reason for the rating of "8"). We'd still stay here again when passing through central Washington! We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Do take the time to visit the Kittitas County Historical Museum ... there is a lot more to see than yo'd suspect from the outside ... and the walking tour thru the city is worthwhile. Many good restaurants (we had a great lunch at the Yellow Church Cafe).

We only stayed one night at the Ellensburg KOA, but were very impressed. The grounds were beautiful and clean. The staff was friendly and attentive. Loves, Fred Meyer, Safeway and several good restaurants were all just a few minutes away yet we felt removed from the town and the park was quiet. There were no real amenities at the park itself (it's a Journey.) We would definitely stay here again - and longer! We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Motorhome.

Super clean and very well maintained, especially for the end of the season. Very close to I-90, so that's a good thing, but if staying in a tent, I'm sure you would hear it, but for us in a trailer, it didn't matter one bit. Store is open until 8pm, but that will be closing sooner I'm sure, so call ahead if much after my review. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We were having a family reunion and chose this KOA because of the central location. It turned out great and the new owners were wonderful. They let us reserve the TV room and even opened up the "garage" door on the end to accommodate everyone. We had about 5 groups stay at the park in RVs/tents but we had over 40 people attending the reunion. They let people park their cars behind the maintenance building which was very convenient. This is the first reunion in about 30 years but the family is already talking about coming back next year. The park is so pretty and everything is well maintained and clean. About half the sites have sewer but there is a dump site for those that don't. We will be back again. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Loved this KOA so much! My family loved the view of the river. The staff was awesome and very friendly. The pool was great and the bathrooms were very clean. They also now sell a variety of beer and wine. Great stay! We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Motorhome.

Our site #20 was a back to back site. One pedestal shared by 2 rigs as many in this park. Usually you get a decent size front yard since you so close to your neighbor on the street side. It's a KOA so it has a lot of family amenities which we don't need but it's a nice stopping point along the way from/to home. You will hear I 90 due to proximity. Right on the Yakima river which is very swift flowing this year. The men's remote shower/bath really needs an exhaust fan. It's pretty tropical in there after the first shower of the day. Campfires not allowed at present time. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This RV Park is a step above dry camping. Power and water, but no sewer hook up in a majority of the sites. Luckily we were only staying two nights. Pleasant park, Yakima River adjacent, check in staff personable. Interstate 90 very close and significant amount of road noise. Dump available, but dump is not the same as hookup. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

It is best to disconnect your tow vehicle. Some areas are tight. We had a 27' motor home and disconnected first, which made things a lot easier. In space 32, we could use our Direct TV satellite. Eat at Palace Cafe and The Porch. Good service and great food.

Lots of low hanging trees in the 50 AMP pull through sites making it very difficult to get into site. When they came through with mower, we had to stop the guy from shooting the debris at our rig. We were able to get a satellite signal from our site. 2 bars on our Verizon hotspot and cell phones worked fine. Some road noise. Friendly office staff. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park. Friendly staff. Some of the sites were very close together. There was nobody in the site next to us when we left for town. When we came back there was a fifth wheel so close to us that I don't see how he walked between to hook up. I could literally have leaned out the window & touched their RV.

There is a pool & a playground. Some grass between sites. We asked for a satellite friendly site & the one we had was. Lots of place to walk the dogs but forget about the dog park. It is way off the beaten path about a quarter mile from the actual park & is just dirt. We would stay here again. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Motorhome.

Ellensburg has lots of restaurants from almost every fast food available to steak houses & Mexican food.

We enjoyed eating at Los Cabos. The food was excellent & the service was fast & efficient. We were served our chips & salsa practically before we were seated at our booth. They are very clean, too. When a party left they pulled the table out & used the carpet sweeper on the floor.

This is a KOA journey. Lots of road noise as it was on a interstate exit with a truck stop. Short pull thru sites as our 40ft. fifth wheel and truck didn't fit. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We were here the first camping weekend in June. The river was beautiful. very swift and full. Families all having a great time but not noisy. They asked if we wanted a full hook up or not so we knew some sites did not have. We opted to be on the river with out sewer. For those that complain dog park to far away I thought the point is to walk your dog and personally I don't want them peeing ad pooping where children run. There are tent sites on the river also. Convenient to expressway and tight turn into park. Can hear some expressway noise. Staff goes above and beyond. Better than your average KOA and nice break before hitting Seattle traffic. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Motorhome.

I've stayed here before. Big trees around, cottonwoods, so shade but hard on allergies. They try to keep it cleaned up. Small fenced dog area at a far end of the park. My site was level enough but barely long enough for a small motor home and tow. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Motorhome.
