We were extremely surprised at the beauty and quality of this campground. The clean bathrooms/showers were spacious and had plenty of hot water (included in the price). Sites were private and were plenty big enough for our 26' fifth wheel and full size pick up. It was a little touchy backing in, but then again I sometimes have trouble pulling into my garage with my car. The beach is spectacular, and the nature trails have partial boardwalks. The beach must have at least 300 feet of sand from the shore to the water at low tide, and be around 1/2 mile long. The park staff are friendly and knowledgeable, but they do not enforce the "no dogs on the beach" bylaw. Be sure to reserve ahead, especially on the weekend. It is a grand park and we will definitely return here often.

Now, this is truly a destination park. Lots of room, lots of lawn/grass area, acres, and a sandy beach that is easily accessible and something out of a picture book. The washrooms are the second to the best that I have ever seen in over fifty parks I've camped in: immaculate, roomy, modern, and hot water included in the price. RV sites are roomy and so easy to get into. Tent sites are natural and very private. WiFi was fair but slow. Price was fair. We got 2 hazy English TV channels. We left a day early because when I went back to add a final day at the office, they had already booked it out from under us without asking us if we were going to stay, as I had told them I probably would when I initially came in. Well, so much for experience of both sides. In any case, I still recommend this park to any who may be curious. Oh, and if you have a dog, park well away from the office when you register, or the owner's unleashed dog will jump up and scratch your car while trying to get at your dog. The strict dog leash bylaw seems to be ignored by everybody. Go here and enjoy yourself, but book well in advance for the time you intend to stay.

We booked this camp from reading the reviews. We did stay 2 nights, but moved because of reasons of misleading propaganda. Indeed it is handy to town and the Cabot trail, but beach is near unusable, and unviewable from most of the sites. Two small men's toilets to accommodate the whole park, single ply paper, and far from spotless. Our site was touchy to back into, and way too noisy from highway noise to rate any kind of peacefulness. It is an old and well used park. Pool was ok. Cable TV and an extra adult is extra. WiFi good, but we were 30 feet from the transmitter. Sewer pipe actually pulled out of the ground when I tried to access it. Management was friendly enough. We found this camp handy to Baddeck, and Louisbourg, and the Cabot trail, but we would probably stay elsewhere if we returned to this area.

Very nice laid out park. Easy to get to off the trans Canada. No WiFi even near the transmitter. Bathrooms were fair to good enough, the park was pretty enough. Showers for 25 cents for 5 minutes were easy and efficient, 10 minutes was enough for us. Sites were quite tight, and without disconnecting, our truck stuck out into the lane about 3 feet or so. It would be ok for a destination campground with the pool and being kind of pretty. The seasonal camps occupy all of the lake front sites, but a small beach is accessible. Friendly management. We'd come back I guess, even for overnight. I guess I could recommend it.

This is a fair park, actually the only park near Gagetown, so figure this part our for yourself. The grounds and sites are fairly level, gravel with a patch of grass. Wi-Fi was good. We camped here in September so it was not crowded. Washrooms were tidy and clean, and the hot water for the showers only cost 25 cents for 4 1/2 minutes worth, but was a little shorter time by the time the hot hit the spout. The manager / caretaker was quite friendly and so we kind of ignored the added expense of $10 per person extra for the other 2 members of our traveling party. They have a nice rec room, and a pool which was closed during our time there. You won't want to go there for holidays, but as a necessary spot while visiting the Gagetown area it's great. The highway is close and audible. I suppose we'd stay here again if we ever visited this area.

This campground has a long way to go to live up to the classification of a resort. It is just an average and adequate park. The staff though, are rated 10 by all the members of camp. The gravel sites are fairly level side to side, but for the most part, you will have to disconnect to level for and aft. Sites are close together so plan carefully when positioning your rig in your slot, keeping the slide out in mind. Most of the sites are on a considerable hillside so hang on to your rye and coke when climbing to your site. The trans Canada highway is close, although out of sight, but surely within earshot. We will definitely stay here again.

After having been mislead as to the distance from the interstate, and to the easy access sites for our 26 ft. 5th wheel, we attempted to negotiate around this shabby park to find our site. With tree branches scraping our trailer and leaning dangerously around a tight circle with a tree in the center, we found it to be near impossible to even attempt backing into our assigned "slot". Having to use 4x4 in "low range" to leaving the camping area, we stopped at the office for a refund, where the manager couldn't figure out how to do it for VISA so reluctantly gave back cash. Had to use low range again to pull away from the office. The lake appeared nice though. The ever narrowing route from the interstate plus the logging camp type park will create certain horror stories for those of you who attempt an adventure at this campground.

This older, but fairly well kept KOA is easily accessible from the interstate, yet far enough away to be peaceful. There are lots of trees so you more than likely will have shade. The sites a mostly pull through and fairly level. The staff are friendly and helpful. They had a water main break before we arrived and so the park was without water for a couple of hours, but with the friendliness of the management, the short inconvenience was no real problem. The pool was clean and refreshing, the surrounding landscape and park was pleasing. We Canadians will definitely stay here again, and so offer our recommendations.

With no minors allowed in this park, it was quite peaceful. The miserable old timer in the office couldn't figure out that the 10% Good Sam discount should be $4.50 and not $4.00. He just said that his Good Sam discount was $4.00, and that was about it. Add to this an extra $1.00 for internet, and it makes you wonder if senility and greed were a prerequisite for working here. The sites were fairly level, but I had to leave my 26 foot 5th wheel completely jack-knifed so my pickup didn't block the road. Fellow campers were nice, and the washrooms were good. The campground is on a swamp/marsh, so you'll need "lots" of bug juice if you plan on being outside. The sites are very tight, so just hope you'll have good neighbors.

Although our rating is only an 8, if we considered the most friendly, relaxed and helpful management we have ever met, a number 10 rating would not be enough. We extended our stay at this memorable RV park, and wish we could have stayed longer. There was plenty of shade, roomy lawn areas, easily accessible, level sites for all units, and great cable and Wi-Fi. The short path from the park to the Folk Center is perfect for avoiding a crowded parking lot if you drive. The owner / manager his wife and staff made this visit for us Canadians a dream. The free coffee and cookies in the office in the mornings with the drop in friends who sometimes offered an impromptu bluegrass jam, was like sitting down with your own family. A more welcome community you will never find, and we recommend this park to everyone.

Fairly easy to get to (with a GPS of course) although the signs are obvious. This a beautiful park, with shade trees, and spacious level concrete sites with adjoining green space for each. The midsize park is hilly in a cute way, but laid out nicely for about any kind of rig your using. The centrally located washrooms/pool office area is easily walkable from anywhere. This place is a "resort" and so you can expect a bit of luxury in your surroundings. We would recommend this place to anyone who ventures near. We Canadians truly appreciate this kind of treatment on a long trip. Staff were great and accommodating. We'll be back.

I don't really ever rate anything as a perfect 10, but this place is close to it. It's new, so no shade for another few years. It has easy access from the interstate, so easy to maneuver around, all sites are completely level, concrete, each with it's own nite light. Perfect for getting into and setting up. It is huge, and most of the time you can more or less choose where you want. Pet friendly with plenty of grass areas, and pick-up bags. No matter where you park, there is a nearby, impeccable restroom building nearby, 4 or 5 on the property. Each private, lockable room has it's own toilet, sink, and shower: amazing. The pool is next to the hot tub, but an adult hot tub is nearby. Cable and Wi-Fi is 10/10. Onsite restaurant, cafe is so convenient when you're beat from driving and don't want to cook in or drive out. Texas is cattle country, so if you can't bear an occasional whiff of cattle, don't come to Texas. (I'm a Canadian so it's normal for me.) This park is everything you could want, for whatever size and style of RV you're using. We will definitely stay here if we are anywhere near Amarillo.

We spent the long weekend here, and were treated royally by the friendliest staff we have ever encountered during our 53 day road trip. We did not miss cable TV nor cell phone signal availability. As well as us Canadians, it appeared all of the residents of this wonderfully cozy camp were considered friends by management. It is a beautiful area, just far enough away from the tourism of Ruidoso, but conveniently close enough for shopping and browsing around. The climate was refreshing compared to the heat wave ravaging the rest of the state. We'd recommend this park to anyone. Thanks again to Bonito Hollow for a great holiday experience.

This KOA was a disgrace to the campground chain. We called ahead to ensure availability after reading an impeccable write-up in a brochure. After setting up, we were told that the pool was out of order, the Wi-Fi was out, and cable TV wasn't working very well. Propane refill was out of the question as the only qualified person was the owner who was away at some personal function. The money hungry management did not hint over the phone that the full advertised amenities were not available, nor did they even fathom the idea of a reduced rate or partial refund for the inconvenience. We would never stay here again, nor would we ever recommend this trap to anyone.

This a great park with various activities. The mid-week prices can't be beat. Staff is knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. We stayed here in the beginning of June and were impressed with this vast yet peaceful campground. We stayed here for another 2 days on our return trip at the end of July, and although it was filled to near capacity, the mood and atmosphere was the same. Unfortunately, the washrooms during this visit were undesirable due to human nature of adolescent guests.
