Very nice park on the north edge of the Phoenix area. We had a level, gravel, pull through site. Sites have concrete patio and aluminum picnic tables. Many over the air TV channels. The Wi-Fi was very slow. Very dog friendly park. Staff was very helpful. We stayed for seven nights. Would definitely stay again.
The two best things about this park are the location and price. WI-FI cost $5.99 for 24 hours. The sewage hook ups in the site was horrible. There is a box with a sliding door between each site. The idea is you put you sewer hose end into the box and what you dump runs down a concrete chute into the sewer. There is no way to seal your sewer connection like every other park I have been in over the last 26 years. With your hose in the box, the sliding door was open at least 4 inches. The odor was awful. Even if we were not dumping and we kept the box was closed, sewage odor reeked out of the box at times. I guess when anyone on our line dumped, we all got the odor. Walking around the park, sewage odors would suddenly occur. I saw boxes with tarps, bungee cords and rocks in an attempt to control the odor of sewage. Most people only hooked up their hose when they wanted to dump, but that did not seem to stop the odors. The staff said the boxes are Nevada State law but the sewer connections on the end row and all other Nevada RV parks I have stayed in have normal pipes that are sealed by attaching the sewer hose end. I will not return.
We have stayed in the Park en-route to Phoenix the last four years. I have always liked the park and staff. I was pleasantly surprised how nicely the park has been fixed up. The grass pull through sites were level. The grass was well maintained. Almost all the trashy full time rigs are gone. The landscaping of Dog Island and the campground has dramatically improved. WI-FI was free and a reasonable speed. Cable had 70 plus channels and was clear.
Had a level asphalt, back-in site. A little tight to back in my fifth wheel, but it was manageable. Wi-Fi was free and was an acceptable speed. Cable TV was fine. Stayed here 3 nights. Park was clean and well maintained. Would stay here again.
Sites are large, flat, level concrete with grass on both sides. Roads are wide asphalt construction. Each site has a picnic table. Everything about this park is first class. Staff is friendly and helpful; the grounds are immaculate. There is a free shuttle to the Casino every 20 minutes.
We were in a 33 foot 5th wheel and requested a site that would have room for a tent. We were given a back in site that fulfilled our needs. Site was gravel and took two, 1 inch boards to level side to side. There was no sewer at our site but a honey wagon was available for a $5.00 cost. Great camp ground for kids. Good gravel roads and drainage was good after two days of pouring rain. Nice KOA. Only complaint is there was room to park two vehicles in our site and still be off the road, but the extra car had to park in over flow parking.
Very nice park on Avenue of the Giants. Paved asphalt roads and level asphalt pads. Grass on both sides of pad. AT&T does not work. Verizon works at Park store/office. A plastic table and fire pit were brought to our site. WI-FI worked well. No shade but surrounded by beautiful trees. Great park for area. Rate is Good Sam plus local taxes.
We stayed in a travel trailer for seven nights. Very nice park, extremely well maintained. All sites are flat and level with a concrete patio and aluminum picnic table. Only negatives that prevent it from being a 10 are, the free TENGO intranet was slow and unreliable. There are numerous small planes flying over from a local airport with an occasional jet thrown in. There is loud truck noise from the freeway and local streets. If the above are not an issue, this is a great park. We would return to this park if in the area.
We had a pull through, gravel spot that was between two trees. It took a ½ inch board to level my trailer, side to side. Each spot has a picnic table on a concrete slab and a fire pit. Over the air TV has about 15 channels. The WI-FI was free and worked well. We had rain, hai,l and light snow. Our space flooded with about ½ inch of water. We are close to Highway 89, but this time of year the road is pretty quiet.
We received a flat, level, gravel pull through site. There was a picnic table. A water regulator is required. We were advised of a freeze warning each night. Free WI-FI worked well. The office staff very knowledgeable about local attractions and services such as shopping and fuel. Access roads are paved and easy to maneuver on.
We had a flat, level, asphalt, pull through site. The site was approximately 70 feet long. Site had a picnic table. Access roads were good. The free Tengointernet was slow, but it was OK. The hot tub was open but the pool was closed. Dinner and breakfast could be ordered from the office staff; prices of the food were reasonable.
We had a gravel, pull through, spot that was about 70 feet long. It took one ½ inch board to level my trailer side to side. There was a picnic table and grass on both sides of the trailer. TengoInternet was free but very slow and unreliable. Access roads were easy to maneuver on. Office staff was friendly and knowledgeable about local attractions. This park is very convenient to Graceland; walk out the back gate and you are less than 100 yards to the ticket counters at Graceland. We had an hour long thunder and lightning storm with a torrential down pour. The campground drained well 45 minutes after the storm stopped.
We were given a gravel pull-through site. It took a 1 inch board and a ½ inch board to level our trailer side to side. The spot was long enough that I did not have to unhook my truck from my travel trailer. I would estimate the site was 70 feet long. There were trees on both sides of our site. We had to jockey to be able to get our slide and awning out so they were not blocked by trees. Our sites had a table and fire pit. The sites are terraced so the sites seem nice and wide. The bathrooms were spotless and the Wi-Fi worked very well.
My spot had a picnic table and there was a nice creek across the road from my site Pull through gravel site. I needed one board to level side to side. The access roads are good. Cable and free WI-FI work well. Many trees, but they are trimmed not to interfere with the sites. Lots of rain but the sites drained pretty well. Staff was very friendly. I was unable to leave my truck hooked up to my vehicle and still fit into the site. I had to park my truck at almost 90 degrees to the trailer to fit in my spot.
We had a flat, level, gravel pull through site. There was a picnic table and fire pit. Lots of trees in the campground, but gravel, access roads were good, and the spaces were wide enough for the trees not to be a problem. The WI-FI worked well. AT&T cell phone coverage was weak. The KOA had a promotion of camp on Friday and Saturday night and get Thursday night for free; this was an unexpected good deal for us. This was a great campground; my only complaint is I have never been in a campground with so many barking dogs in trailers while their owners were away.
I was given a gravel, back in site. It took one ½ inch board to level my RV side to side. I noticed many RV’s were on boards or were using their mechanical devices to level. At $53.00 a night, I should not have to level my trailer. Access roads were good. Wi-Fi worked well. Staff was very friendly and gave good information regarding tours and driving around the D.C. area. There is lots of freeway noise during the day. At night the noise it is not as noticeable. The park is very helpful in setting up tours and explaining how to use public transportation to access the D.C. area.
I received a gravel, back in site. It took a one inch board to level side to side. Access roads are gravel and wide. Cable is good. Wi-Fi is a free two hour block each day. Wi-Fi works well though. Expensive for what you get. $51.00 Wed-Thurs and $54.00 Fri & Sat. For that cost, there should be no need to level the RV and you should have a pull through sites. Spot was advertised as 45 feet long and 35 feet wide. The pad was probably 35 feet long and 16 feet wide. My truck was within 2 feet of the trailer to fit in the spot. The back of my truck was opposite my trailer door to clear the road.
My pull through site was flat and level. It was composed of crushed rock. The site was barely 52 feet long. To keep my trailer and truck in the site, I needed 30 feet of fresh water hose to reach my trailer. I had to back my trailer in at an angle after disconnecting so I could stay off the road. The site had a picnic table and fire pit. Good access roads. The free Wi-Fi was excellent. No cable. The over air TV was strange. T.V. signal kept cutting out every three or 4 minutes for 5-10 seconds at a time. The office staff said they had never heard of this problem.
Flat, level, gravel, pull through site about 70 feet long. Picnic table and fire pit. Good drainage in rain. Access roads are very good. The staff was very professional and helpful. The staff accepted delivery of 1400 pounds of medical supplies and helped me load my truck. This was unexpected help and greatly appreciated. The internet was Tengo. Since the campground was about 1/3 full Tengo worked OK.
We were in a premier RV site. This was a back-in site on the perimeter of the campground. Spot was flat level gravel, with grass on one side and a carpeted patio on the other. There was a table and fire pit. The spot was about 70 feet long. Access roads were paved and easy to maneuver on. Internet was Tengo internet and even though free, the internet was very slow and kept kicking me off.
Our site was a long, (approximately 100 feet) pull through, gravel site. I needed one board to level side to side. Each site had a table and fire pit. We had lots of rain, but the sites drained well. The access roads were asphalt, wide, and easy to maneuver on. The Wi-Fi was excellent. There was no cable and I could only receive two over the air stations. The staff was extremely friendly and great sources of information regarding local attractions. Very nice campground.
This was an awkward, pull through grass site. Since the grass was wet, I needed 4X4 to pull up the grassy slope, into the site. Due to rain, my truck tires tore into the lawn, and my trailer slid slightly sideways and tore gouges in the grass. I needed a one inch board to level side to side. I had to lower the front of my travel trailer to within six inches of the ground to level the trailer, front and rear. The rear of the site was so steep; I had to pull my trailer ½ of the way into the site so I was comfortable my trailer would no slide backwards when unhooked. Sites did have a fire pit and picnic table. The access roads are asphalt and very narrow. I was able to navigate the roads but I was unable to avoid dragging my trailer wheels over the grass on numerous turns. There was a charge for WI-FI. This is not a campground I would return to.
Our site was a back in, flat, level dirt site, with a fire ring and picnic table. The site was so flat; there was no need to level. We were among trees, so that about half our rig was shaded. The branches were high enough, and the tree trunks were far enough apart that they did not interfere with our awning or slide out. There was lots of rain, but drainage was good. The access roads are all paved asphalt, wide and easy to maneuver on. The nightly cost was high, but there are amenities to make this a destination resort. This park is the most complete RV Park I have ever seen; but not worth the price if you don’t use all the facilities.
My site was a flat level, crushed slate, back in site. Site was probably about 70 feet long. No need to level the trailer. Site also has a picnic table and a fire pit. Had heavy thunder storms at night and the sites drained very well. Access roads are asphalt and are all one way travel direction. WI-FI alternated between slow and good connection but the Wi-Fi never disconnected. There is a nice store in the office. Office staff also was very helpful in locating local services and area attractions. I needed repairs for a sink drain pipe that had cracked. Teresa, Staff, recommended a good repair service. The service, Regins RV Service, came to the campground and did the repairs. I enjoyed the campground and would return if in the area again.
Our site was a flat, level, pull through site, composed of gravel that was approximately 100 feet long. No need to level the trailer or unhook my truck. Access roads were good and easy to maneuver on. Sites had grass on each side with a picnic table and a fire pit. There are approximately one mile of walking trails around the campground. There is a catch and release lake that does not require a fishing license. Campers’ can also swim in the lake or rent kayaks or pedal boats. The camp ground has a good children’s play yard, game room, horse shoes, volley ball, badminton and a pavilion. Staff was very friendly. WI-Fi was free and worked well. Very nice campground; I would definitely return again if in the area.
Had flat, level, pull through, gravel site; no need to level. Good access roads were easy to maneuver. Site had grass on each side, a picnic table and fire pit. Lots of trees through out campground. Site was long enough (55 feet plus) to allow me to leave the truck attached to the trailer. Nice Italian restaurant about one block from campground. Many amenities I did not use. I would return again if in area.
We arrived at night, after a long drive. Access roads were gravel and narrow. Our escort had to move a triple axle, fifth wheel about four feet forward so we could get to our pull through site. Roads are gravel and would be tough unless using care when driving. Site was packed gravel. Needed one, ½ inch board to level trailer, side to side. Had grass on both sides of rig. Patio was brick with a table and four chairs. There was also a fire pit. All utilities worked fine. Site was long enough, 55 feet plus, to leave my truck hooked up to my trailer. I would stay here again if passing through.
We stayed here one night. Pull through site was a narrow, sloped gravel site that took a 1 inch board to level RV side to side. No table or cable. Numerous free over air TV channels. Unable to leave my RV and truck hooked up without sticking 3 feet out onto road. The rig is 51 feet long. Roads were a combination of asphalt and gravel. Wi-Fi was extremely slow and kept failing. Only good thing was Wi-Fi was free. Showers were clean and we each received a free 15 minute token for the shower when we checked in. Laundry room was clean and all the washers and dryers seemed to work. Free continental breakfast was provided. Dog run in back was gravel with no lawn or dirt. Dog waste scooper bags were provided. Many long term residents. OK for an overnight stay.
We stayed one night while en-route to our destination. Long, level, gravel site; did not need to level trailer. Picnic table was included. Pull through site was long enough so I did not have to unhook my truck. Interior roads were packed gravel, and plenty wide for easy maneuvering. Many amenities, such as a game room, mini golf, free showers before 2100 hours that we did not take advantage of. A coffee shop is a short walk away. No shelter from sun. View from campground was nice. I would definitely stop again if in the area.
We stayed here 9 nights for the Reno Air Races. Flat level concrete sites. Could not put out awning due to location I had to put slide out to miss pedestal. Great helpful staff. Asphalt roadways with concrete pads. Wi-Fi free but very slow. Nice casino and restaurant connected to RV park. Would definitely return.
We stayed in a 30 foot RV being pulled by a 22 foot truck. We were given a dirt RV site that was large enough to park my truck in front of the trailer and still not block the road or site next to us. I needed a 1" board to level my trailer side to side. There were probably 10 sites I could easily fit my rig into. The major problem with this campground is the access road. The camp ground road is paved, but due to many large trees, you should walk the road prior to committing your rig to avoidable damage. I love the Redwood Trees and the beauty of the forest off sets the lack of electric, water, and sewer hookup. Verizon works well. AT&T is almost non-existent.
We were in a large pull through site that consisted of gravel. There are orange trees dividing spaces. There was a picnic table at the site. Roads are paved and the sites all have easy access. Despite the fact that it rained all night, the park drained well. WI-FI was free and slow. Very nice park. I would return if passing through Bakersfield.
We arrived on a day the snow was melting. Interior roads are dirt and gravel. Roads were extremely muddy. Our pull through site was crushed lava rock. I needed one board to level my trailer side to side. The rock stuck to shoes but it drained well. Our site had a picnic table, in ground fire pit and a BBQ. It was windy every day. Trees are small and not large enough to provide shade. Staff was very friendly and helpful in locating and seeing surrounding attractions. Internet was Tengo internet and it worked well.
When we arrived, the campground was covered in snow that was melting from a storm 4 days ago. We were in a level "pull through site" that seemed composed of gravel and dirt. When the snow melted, we saw our picnic table was on a small concrete slab. The campground is full of large pine trees. The right side of my travel trailer had branches sticking out about 1 foot over the roof. Our site and a great deal of the campground was very muddy due to melting snow. Our site also had a yellow concrete block that stood about 6 inches above the ground to protect the sewer hook up. There was a piece of yellow re bar sticking up about 18 inches that was bent over at 90 degrees indicating many people have hit them. When I walked around the campground, well over half the re bar was bent over. Due to the placement of the re bar and picnic table, I had to back up and maneuver about 10 times to get my tires and sewer connections by the re bar without damaging the tires or ripping off my terminal drain connections. I watched one person back his 5th wheel out of the pull through since he could not get by the re bar. The roads are asphalt but the roads are pot holed and in poor shape. The Wi-Fi was non existent. I was able to locate the site with my laptop but the signal was too weak to allow my laptop or I-phone to hook up. AT&T worked well for phone and Inter Net. There is no cable. I could not put my antenna up full height due to the trees, but I was able to get 5 stations. Price is right, location is good, but I will try another park next time in Flagstaff.
Our site was a gravel, pull-through site. It took 2 boards to level my trailer side to side. The sites seem short but the gravel roads are wide. I was unable to tell where any site ended or the road began. I had to ask at the office if my truck and trailer were impinging on the road. Each site has a small tree for shade. The swimming pool was closed for the season. TengoInternet was supplied free for each day with a coupon. Staff was friendly and gave good suggestions of where to eat and how to see the Petrified Forest and Painted Desert. Dog walk is OK but there is no off leash area.
The interior roads are all asphalt that are easy to maneuver on. Our spot was a flat, level, pull through, asphalt, pad that was approximately 70 feet long. There was a picnic table and gravel on each side of the pad. The park is in the process of installing cable TV. With an antenna there are 13 TV channels available. The internet is Tengo. There are two antennas in the park and I kept getting disconnected and had to repeatedly log on. The staff is very knowledgeable about local attractions. Camp K-9 is well maintained and covered with wood chips for the dogs to run on. There is an all you can eat pancake breakfast served Saturday and Sunday in the Recreation room for $3.00 a person. The staff went out of their way to be helpful. When my portable tire pump for my trailer tires malfunctioned, the staff brought over a pump from their shop so I could air up my trailer tire. This is a great RV park.
Nice park. Rate is Good Sam discount plus cash discount. Flat, level pull through sites. Sites are not long. My truck and rig are 52 feet long. I was about a foot into the roadway on each side. Concrete curb on each side of the site with a small concrete pad with a plastic picnic table and a metal cook stand attached. Trees are trimmed back to not interfere with slide out. Wi-Fi was excellent. Staff was very friendly
This is the best KOA we have stayed at. Sites are flat, level, gravel sites with lawn on each side. Each site has two sewer connections, a picnic table and fire pit. My pull through site was approximately 85 feet long by 21 feet wide. Roads are wide and there is lots of room to maneuver. This KOA also offers dinners, hot sandwiches, every night between 1700 and 1930 hours. The staff was fantastic; going out of there way to be helpful. Two things people should be aware of that are outside the KOA's control. At the park it was either windy or there was a strong odor of natural gas coming from the wells around Artesia. A fantastic park if there is a light breeze.
Large, pull through, gravel sites. Led in by staff. Site is long but needed a 1/4 inch board to level trailer side to side. Roads are wide and easy to maneuver. Very windy our first day. Blowing dirt in campground was not a problem. Rain and snow on second day; drainage was good. Picnic table on a metal pad in each site. No cable TV. Antenna picks up 10 TV channels. Wi-Fi worked very well.
Pull through site was level. No need to level. WI-FI was free for 7 days and worked well. Staff was extremely accommodating. Roads and sites are easy to set up in. Camp K-9 was very good. There are trails around the back of the KOA that are nice to walk on with your dog. Sewer hook up is on concrete island so I needed blocks and a board to get a down hill sewer run. Nice park. I would stay here again if passing through.
Very nice campground in a downtown, urban setting. Sites are level gravel with a concrete slab patio. Difference between a deluxe site and regular site is deluxe site has a picnic table and BBQ. Thought it would be tough to back my rig in. With help from the staff it was very easy. Staff was friendly and great source of information about local attractions. WI-Fi was very slow but it was a secure, password protected system.
Camped here one night on the way to Arizona. Stayed here two years ago and park has deteriorated. Rate was $45 with a $5 AAA discount. Park is almost all full timers. Only saw 10 overnight spaces. Wi-Fi was an additional $6.00. Would only return for one night if passing through and too tired to go on. Park was not a spot I would stop at.
Nice Park. Large asphalt roads. Sites are sand and grass. Needed one 1/4 board to level trailer side to side. Site was long enough to easily leave truck hooked up to trailer and there was good space between rigs on both sides. Were led to site by staff member. All staff members we met were very friendly and tried to be helpful. Best KOA camp K-9 we have seen. Wi-Fi worked well. Second time staying here. We would return again.
This is a KOA located on the grounds of the Feather River Casino. The roads are asphalt. The sites are concrete slabs with lawn on each side. There are a combination of back in and pull through sites. Some end sites of the aisles are called patio sites (extra concrete, picnic table with umbrella and a fire pit). Other end sites are called Party sites, (large concrete area, gas BBQ, picnic table with umbrella and small sink.) Our site #36 was a back in site. We needed a 1/4 board to level our trailer side to side. There was a sewer hook up at each end of the site that was very convenient. We had a small concrete area in the lawn with a picnic table. The staff was very friendly. There is a well stocked store/gift shop on the premises. The Wi-Fi worked very well. Discount coupons were provided for the store and casino. The space was not long enough to park my truck and trailer in the RV spot. The road was wide enough that most people parked their tow rigs across the entrance to their spot. This parking arrangement did not interfere with other rigs using the roads. A nice RV park. I would definitely stay here again.
We were in a pull through, flat, level, gravel site. There was grass on both sides of the gravel. A nice picnic table was on a concrete slab at the end of our site. There was not enough room to park my truck in front or back of our 30 foot trailer with out maneuvering to stay off the road. There is ample extra parking available around the club house to park cars. There were lots of trees for shade. The trees were not a problem for any of our groups slide outs. Unfortunately on Thursday, we had to listen to two men using a blower and vacuum clean up leaves for over 2 hours. The noise was very loud. The Wi-Fi was very good. The pool is small and not heated except by the sun. The club house provided to our group was large, had a well equipped kitchen and was clean. The park was well maintained and I would stay here again.
We stayed five nights in a 30 foot travel trailer. Nightly rate is a club price based on 10 plus rigs. All the sites are flat, level, gravel sites. Each site has a small, brick patio, picnic table and a fire pit. The sites are all, a 90 degree back in, off a paved road. It took a little maneuvering, but all our rigs were able to get located appropriately in their sites. There is a little store in the office. The club house was nice with a large screen T.V., couches, pool table, video machines, a work out room and a kitchen. There was free coffee, tea, and hot chocolate available all day long. There is a nice outside patio with a large BBQ pit. Restrooms, showers, and laundry were clean. Cable T.V. was excellent and the free WIFI worked OK. Marina Dunes is under new management and the staff was friendly and eager to make our stay as pleasant as possible. They provided good suggestions for places to eat and provided discounts for local attractions. As a prior review stated, there is freeway noise, but not enough to be obnoxious. The park is 1/3rd of a mile from the ocean via a path by their rear gate. The park is less than 8 miles from down town Monterey and the numerous attractions in the area. We had a very pleasant stay in the park and would definitely return.
We stayed at this park last Labor Day weekend. We returned because we were meeting two other couples. We did not like our site last year since it was extremely unlevel. We filled out a provided form when we left last year, and were told we would get one of two other sites. We were given the same site as last year. We were escorted to our site by a staff member in a golf cart. After showing us out site, he said, “boy it’s going to be tough to level.” Then he drove off. It took me five boards to level the trailer. I went to use the lower bathroom and the urinal was out of order and the floor was flooded The Wi-Fi was poor and intermittent. For $53.00 a night a level site, working Wi-Fi and a clean working bathroom should not be to be too much too ask. On the plus side, the coffee bar, wiffle ball tournament, and free BBQ were great. The best thing about the park is that it is close to numerous attractions. If the park wants to charge premium money, they should put the effort into making all the sites level and continue to improve their facilities.
This is the second time we have stayed in this park. We stayed here for three nights. Everything about this park is first class. There are large wide, long, level pull through spots, excellent Wi-Fi and an extremely friendly staff. The only negatives such as the noise from Highway 5 or the passing trains do not detract from the park. Unlike many parks, Durango does not charge extra for dogs. The bathrooms and showers were very clean. The pool was warm due to the weather but the water did not burn my eyes or have the typical chlorine smell. I would not hesitate to stay in this park again.
We had a long, gravel pull through site. There was plenty of room to unhook my truck in front of my 30 foot trailer and park another car behind my trailer. The spot looked uneven. It was much easier to level than I anticipated. It took a one inch board to level my trailer side to side. The site was narrow but I had plenty of room for my slide out. The sites are so narrow, to use the fire pit, you have to plan your rig placement since the unmovable, fire pit is less than three feet from the parking pad. We had hail, rain and snow. More rock on the parking pads would eliminate many muddy puddles. The grass on both sides of the parking pad absorbed the water without becoming muddy. There was no cable TV. Antenna only achieved two Spanish speaking stations. Those in our group with satellite TV had good reception. Wi-Fi did not work at our site. Wi-Fi was acceptable in the club house and outside pavilion. The pedestal at our site only had 50 amp service. The office supplied a 50 to 30 amp adapter at no charge. There was a five dollar charge for a dog. The staff was friendly and the park is centrally located to many attractions. I do not consider this park a “resort” but I would stay here again
This is the second time we stayed in this park. Our site was a pull through, with gravel parking. There was a small lawn with a picnic table at each site. I needed a one inch board to level side to side. It poured rain the four days we were at this camp ground. Since the camp ground is on a sloped hill, the drainage was excellent. Even though we had over two inches of rain, none of the sites we saw flooded up due to the rock and drainage. Due to the weather, the owners opened up the club house a day early so we had a place to meet and eat on Thursday. This time the Wi-Fi worked great all four days. I would definitely return to this park.
I spent one night here while traveling down Highway 5. All the sites are pull through. I was able to park my 30 foot travel trailer and 20 foot truck in the site with out having to unhook my truck. The sites are dirt, bordered by grass on both sides. I needed a 1 inch board to level my trailer side to side. Each site has a picnic table. There appeared to be 10 – 15 full time residents in the park. The bathrooms, showers and club house facilities were clean. There was minimal noise from the highway. The Wi-Fi was free but I kept getting timed out on my connection. The night and morning I was there, it was extremely windy. Wind gusts rocked my trailer even though I had the tongue jack and four stabilizers down. I would stay here again if I needed a place to stop over night.
This is a Bureau of Land Management Campground. There is no potable water. Lone Pine, the closest town, is approximately 5 ½ miles away. There were clean vault toilets through out the camp ground loops. Each site had well defined dirt parking pad, a picnic table and a fire pit. We camped in a 30 foot travel trailer. I stayed in site 72. The dirt parking area was about 60 feet long and about 14 feet wide. I need four boards to raise the down hill wheels of my trailer, six inches, so I could level my 30 foot travel trailer. Tuttle Creek was about 15 yards behind my site. There were cattle that came into the campground. The access off Horse Shoe Meadow Road is a narrow windy asphalt road with 4 speed bumps. You have to look ahead since the road is so narrow, two RV’s would be unable to pass unless one of them uses one of the pull offs along the road. The campground roads are dirt and you have to pick spots to let on coming traffic pass. The dirt roads were so soft I had to use 4X4 to stop spinning my tires when I started towing my trailer from a dead stop. The views from this park are phenomenal. The stars at night were unbelievably clear. This is great camp ground to use as a base to see other attractions in the area.
I camped here for one night en-route up to Alabama Hills by Lone Pine. My site, space 55, was a dirt pull through site. The site was long enough that I was able to keep my truck hooked up (total length 51 feet) and still easily be off the roads to the front and rear of my site. I had to use one ½ inch board to level side to side. There was a huge, neat tree just east of my site. The site had a picnic table. AT&T cell does not work in the campground. Verizon users were able to text but not make voice calls. The free Wi-Fi worked very well. There was a creek about 10 yards from my site. The water was rushing, probably due to recent rain and snow. There was a train track 75 – 100 past the creek. Four trains came by during my stay. Trains were loud but I didn’t feel any shaking. A unique sound was that two or three times we heard lion’s roar. The office staff told us there was a game preserve called Shimbala just up the road so don’t be afraid if you hear a lion’s roar. The bathrooms and showers were very clean. I would estimate that over one half of the sites are occupied by full time residents. Unlike some campgrounds I have been in, most of the rigs were well maintained and the residents were friendly. I read about the staff in prior reviews and wasn’t sure what to expect. When I checked in, I asked the girl at the front desk if AT&T worked any where in the park. She told me no, but let me use the KOA hard line to call home and let my wife know I had arrived safely. A friend was going to meet me at the KOA, later that night. She waived the extra vehicle fee and gave me a pass to put on his car when he arrived. When I was leaving the next morning, she asked if there was anything the KOA could do to make my stay more pleasant. When I was walking around the campground, one of the KOA staff drove up, asked if he could help with anything. We talked about 10 minutes and as he left he said be sure to let the staff know if anything could be done to make my stay more enjoyable. There are not enough activities in the area to draw me back to this campground. How ever if I was passing through, I would not hesitate to stop for a night.
We stayed here in a 30 foot travel trailer. We stayed 3 nights and 4 days. Most of the sites were long wide, pull through concrete sites. Our site was level and approximately 75 feet long. There was well maintained grass on both sides of the concrete pad. All the interior roads were composed of asphalt and easy to travel for big rigs. The cable TV had numerous analog and digital channels. The WI-FI was excellent. The swimming pool, spa, club house and outdoor gas fire place were all exceptionally clean and first rate. There was a nice path that led down to the Sacramento River. The path provided access to hiking trails and provided nice places to walk our dog. The staff was very friendly upon check in. They gave us a cookie for our dog. They made an excellent recommendation for restaurant that could accommodate our trailer club. Every staff member we contacted was friendly and offered to provide any assistance we needed. I would definitely stay here again
Our spot was a flat level concrete slab that required no leveling. There was grass and gravel on both sides of the site. There were multiple, cable TV channels available. There was free Wi-Fi and the speed of the Wi-Fi was good. There was a concrete table with benches in each site. The sites are long and relatively narrow. I was easily able to park my 30 foot trailer and my 22 foot truck in my spot. There was only one small area where my step would come down over concrete instead of on the lawn. Due to the utility stanchion, bushes and tree, I had to maneuver so I could open my 40 inch slide out. Because of a tree, I was unable to open my awning. The sprinklers came on every night and soaked the site. I was warned of this by the staff so I put my chairs away every night to keep them dry. The dog run is enclosed, and has a gravel base for the dogs to run on. The food at the Border Town Casino next door was good and reasonably priced. The RV Park supplied coupons for a free drink, $1 off a meal, a raffle ticket for a jacket and two other items. Even though the Park has a Reno address, the Park is 20 minutes from down town Reno. I would stay here again.
Our site was a long gravel site, approximately 65 feet long. I needed 2 one inch boards and 3 half inch boards to level the low side of the trailer side to side. I was unable to hook up to Wi-Fi in my site. The site had a good mix of sun and shade. I especially liked the fire pits that were made from washing machine drums. Staff was very friendly and helpful in locating local attractions. Swimming pool and bathrooms were clean and well maintained. The laundry had three washers and three dryers but was only open from 1000 to 2100 hours. There are no discounts on weekends and holidays. The park has a great location to Santa Cruz, Roaring Camp Railroad, Mystery Spot, and Henry Cowell State Park. There are improvements to the park since last year but for the price charged, I expect the sites to be level and WI-Fi to work throughout the park.
We stayed at this resort for 9 days while touring the San Diego area. We were in a standard inside site. The site was a flat, level concrete slab. There was no need to level side to side. The site had water, electric, sewer, a picnic table and numerous free cable TV channels. The sites were all separated by hedges. Every two or three sites had a garbage can in front. The grounds were immaculate and there seemed to be a large force of gentleman gardening, cleaning and picking up garbage all day long. The pool, hot tub, showers, bathrooms and laundry were clean and very well maintained. A weekly schedule of activities was handed out each week. There were generally three or four activities a day. The resort also had some short comings. The place was alive with ants. I had to kill ants in my trailer. To keep the ants out, I had to spray my levelers, around my tires, my electric cord, cable cord, fresh water hose and sewer hose to slow down the ants. All around me, people were spraying or putting out Ajax to try and control the ants. I talked to two people who told me the have been going to Chula Vista RV Resort for years and that there has always been an ant problem. The other problem was the resorts Wi-Fi program. You could go to the store with your computer and receive 30 free minutes of Wi-Fi usage a day. They also sold a 7 day package for $19.99. The Wi-Fi was so slow and erratic; buying the 7 day package was definitely a waste of money. The resort has a nice store and is part of the Chula Vista Marina. There is a nice park with lawns and picnic facilities. Below the park was a nice and beach just past a rocky breakwater. There are two nice and reasonably priced restaurants at the marina. Even with the ant problem and poor Wi-Fi, I would stay at this resort again.
We stayed at the park for one night. Our site was gravel and separated from the sites on both sides with an Oleander hedge. I had to use one board to level our trailer from side to side. The cable TV and free Wi-Fi worked very well. My trailer and tow rig are 50 feet long and fit in the site end to end. The rest rooms and laundry were clean. There was a game room with ping pong, fooz ball, air hockey and a pool table. The swimming pool was heavily used due to the fact it was 109 degrees when we checked in and it was still 89 degrees at 2200 hours. Even though there were constantly people in the pool, it remained reasonably clean and cool. The staff was friendly and gave good recommendations for a local place to eat. (Peggy Sue’s was a neat 1950’s style dinner.)
We stayed at this park for one night and I have mixed reactions. The entrance to the park was difficult to find. The other rig I was traveling with, and I, both missed the entrance sign. The park is down an embankment and not visible from the road. The large Iron Horse RV Resort sign is on the far side of the road and confused us regarding the location of the park entrance. When we were checking into the park, there was no place to park without blocking the road into the park. The woman who checked us in, did not seem to have any information about the surrounding area. She did provide us with 20% off meal coupons for the Hilton Garden Hotel (which was just up the road) and was somehow affiliated with the campground. We had breakfast at the Garden Hotel and the food was excellent. As a guest of the RV resort, you get full access to the pool and work out room in the Garden Hotel. The pool and hot tub was so small at the Iron Horse, that if you wanted to swim, it was necessary to use the Hilton Garden. We were also given a phone number to call if we wanted to take a free shuttle to the Red Lion Hotel and Casino. There was a nice recreation room, lounge and large laundry room. The bathrooms were clean. The roads were wide and composed of asphalt. Our site was flat, level gravel with a concrete patio. Grass bordered the area around the patio. The site was long and wide. There was no picnic table on our site. When looking around the park, there were few picnic tables in sight. I would also estimate that one half of the park was occupied by either long term or permanent residents. The RV Resort was clean except that the area around the dumpsters reeked of spoiled garbage. I felt fortunate not to have a site next to the dumpster. I was only in the site for one night since I was traveling through. The resort was adequate for one night and I would not hesitate to return if I was passing through Elko, Nevada.
We were in a deluxe site which included free Wi-Fi, and a pull thru site. We had a flat, level, gravel site. Our site had a new plastic picnic table and a nice concrete patio. There was grass between our sites and there was lots of room for slide outs. The Wi-Fi was reasonably fast and easy to access. There was a nice, clean laundry room close to our site. It cost $2.00 to wash and $.25 for each 10 minutes to dry. It took about 40 minutes to dry a load of clothes. Every morning, there was free coffee and hot chocolate available. The park is within four easy walking blocks of most of the attractions of the town of West Yellowstone. The check in staff was very accommodating. They provided maps, coupons and advice for things to see in and around West Yellowstone. I thought the price was high, but location to Yellowstone Park and the cleanliness of the park along with the amenities made the price OK. I would definitely stay at this park again.
Our space was a pull through, asphalt site with grass and a tree on each side. The asphalt was so uneven; it took two boards to level my 30 foot trailer side to side. There was a gravel parking spot in each site since the spots were not long enough to accommodate my trailer and truck. The pool and bathrooms were very clean and well maintained. I had trouble logging on to the internet. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I realized that I had not been given my KOA discount when I checked in. I went back to the office and was rapidly taken care of and the problem was corrected. The staff was also very friendly and provided maps and suggestions for what to see in and around Salt Lake City. For the price, $50.00, I felt the sites should have been level, and the inter-net should work well. I liked the campground and had no concerns about the neighborhood. The staff wanted our stay to be a pleasant one. I would return if passing through Salt Lake City since the KOA is close and convenient to most of the local attractions.
We stayed for three nights on a premium spot on the upper level of the campground. The site was gravel with lawn on both sides. We had a fire pit and a new plastic picnic table. We stayed with another couple next to our site. There was a large tree between our sites that provided ample shade and was a great place to sit and admire the view of the surrounding mountains. The view was spectacular in all directions. The Wi-Fi connection was fast and easy to hook up to. The staff that led me to my site was great. He made backing into the site extremely easy. While we were off exploring Yellowstone, my fresh water hose burst. The staff turned the hose off and told me about the problem so I could replace the hose. There is free miniature golf at the park. We enjoyed it so much, we played two rounds. We were given discount tickets for purchases in the parks store. The prices in the store were less than the same items offered in Yellowstone or stores in the town of Gardiner. The check in staff was very helpful. I was traveling with another couple who had made the reservations and put the deposit on their credit card. The check in staff credited the entire deposit to my friend’s site and allowed me to pay for the second site with my Good Sam Discount. This has been one of the few campgrounds on this trip that have been so accommodating. I enjoyed everything about my stay in this campground and would definitely return to this place.
We stayed for three nights. We had a large dirt space that needed two, two inch boards to level our 30 foot trailer side to side. The site was dirt and very large. We had a picnic table and a fire pit about 25 feet from our trailer. The sewer connection was a bit odd. The connection was about 8 inches above ground level. I had to build a ramp with wood to run my sewer hose into the drain. There was only 20 amp service but this did not cause a problem. When using water at the camp site, the pressure would sometimes drop to zero and then a few seconds later, resume full pressure again. This happened every time my wife or I were showering in our trailer. There were lots of mosquitoes but repellent took care of that problem. There was no cell service for AT&T or Verizon in the park. The campground was full, but by 2300 hours, all was quiet and we had no problems with noise. Camp fire programs were offered by the US Forest Service. People driving way too fast in the campground were a large source of blowing dirt. This campground is an excellent base to explore Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. All the pull through spots were large and roomy. These are some of the largest sites I have seen in a private camp ground. I would return to this campground if I was in the area of Yellowstone again.
The entrance was difficult to find since it is poorly marked. When exiting the park, you have to set up carefully to avoid striking any cars parked on the street. We were in a pull through site, but due to a tree, the electrical box, and my slide out, I was unable to park my truck in front of my 30 foot trailer. I had to park behind my trailer at an angle and attempt to keep my vehicle off the grass. Our spot was gravel and we needed one board to level the trailer side to side. Our picnic table had one bench that was split in half and was unusable as a seat. There was no free Wi-Fi at the park but there was free Wi-Fi across the street at the local library. The park was extremely windy so no one had awnings or chairs out. That being said, the location of the park was excellent. The park was a great base for exploring Grand Teton National Park and the town of Jackson. I don’t consider this park a resort. For this price, the up keep of the park and the condition of the sites should be much better. Unlike a previous reviewer, I did not consider the walk to the pool at the Virginian Hotel excessive. I would return to the park for its location, not it amenities.
Our spot was a flat, level, gravel pull through site. Not necessary to level our 30 foot trailer. The free Wi-Fi was very slow. Each spot has grass, a picnic table and trees. Bathroom and showers were very clean. Right next to rail road tracks. Three times at night, a train woke us up. Park is nothing special, but it is more than adequate for an overnight stay.
We stayed in H loop (water, electric and sewer) with our travel club. We were in a pull through site that was made up of crushed gravel. Our site was so uneven, I had to put three inches of boards under one side of the trailer to level it side to side. There were no Wi-Fi or TV channels available. Satellite TV seemed to work. All cell phone carriers seemed to work through out the park. The bathrooms had nice showers and were clean. As one previous reviewer stated, the camp ground is close to Highway 80. I did not notice the noise at night. The train tracks were just past Highway 80 and I enjoyed watching and listening to the trains going up and down the mountains. The camp ground could definitely use some basic maintenance. Weeding the play grounds, basket ball court, tennis courts and horse shoe pits would go a long way to make the camp ground look more professional. Grading the sites would also make setting up and leveling much easier. This is a beautiful area and the camp ground provides access to great hiking, four wheeling and sight seeing locations
The access road to the B loop was very tight due to numerous trees along the road. The B loop has electricity in each site and water faucets for roughly every three sites. The camp ground staff asks you not to hook up to the water faucets. The A loop has water and electricity in each site. This loop is much more big rig friendly. All of the rest of the loops have no hook ups. There is a dump station available when leaving that is free to campers. Our site was flat and level. The site was a combination of dirt and fine rock. A mat kept the inside of the trailer clean. The site was so flat I did not have to level side to side. The site had a picnic table, BBQ and fire pit. There was a good combination of sun and shade. It was very windy the last two days. The tops of the trees were really blowing but the camp ground had minimal wind. The Wi-Fi worked well at our site. AT&T cell phone service worked well. We were only able to get three TV channels using an antenna. The bathrooms were old but clean. Lake Tahoe was across the street from the camp ground and two traffic signals provided easy access to the lake. There was a nice dog walk / bike path that provided good walking and site seeing travel. All in all, this is an old camp ground with a good location that is staffed by friendly camp hosts. I would stay here again.
We stayed here for 5 nights in a 30 footer. We were on a package deal that included 5 days of boat use and 5 days use of a Marina slip. The entrance to the park is well marked and the roads are a combination of asphalt and gravel. I chose a Lakefront site that had water and electricity. The site was packed gravel. There was a good combination of sun and shade. I needed one 1/2 inch board to level the trailer side to side. The park offers pump out on site or they have a free dump station for campers with three stations when leaving the park. The staff is extremely friendly. The staff hustles to be sure every concern is taken care of. The park is clean and well maintained. There are two shower buildings that were constantly cleaned. Most of the bathrooms are vault toilets, but they were cleaned regularly and had no unpleasant smell. Prices are based on days of the week and whether the site is lake side or standard site. Check out the Collins Lake web site for site locations and pictures of the sites. Our site over looked the marina and was about 30 feet from the lake. We were given a map and excellent directions to our site. However when leaving, the roads to the exit were confusing and to avoid taking the trailer into a dead end, or up a steep gravel road, I had to walk to route to the exit to avoid any backing issues. The campground is very family and dog friendly. Most people are here to either fish or to take part in some type of boat activity. Very nice campground to visit. I will definitely keep returning.
We stayed here for 4 days with our camping club. We have a 30 foot travel trailer pulled by a 20 foot truck. Park has paved roads and large sites. The manager had to lead us in, the wrong way down road to fit into site. Because of trees, it was awkward to back into, but the staff made the process as easy as possible. Definitely need spotters to back into most sites. The site was gravel and we had to level 2 inches side to side. That being said, the site was extremely large and had a good combination of sun and shade. The owner and his staff were very friendly and helpful. He made the club house available to us for our meals and meeting. It snowed for 3 of the 4 days we camped. They had the pellet stove in the club house roaring before we entered so the room was warm and toasty. Ran out of propane due to heater use. Staff came to trailer, picked up the propane tank, filled the tank and returned it. Park was beautiful and very well maintained. The lawns looked like golf course quality. I didn't like the "keep the pets off the grass" signs, but once I found the pet area, I had no problem with the rule. The pet walk is a large grass area that the dogs can be off-leash if they are under voice control. Wireless Wi-Fi was hit or miss at our site. At the club house the connection was fast. The only phone carrier that worked in the park was AT&T. I would definitely return to this park.
Very poorly marked entrance. The sign comes up and you see a restaurant. The park is off to your left. Price is a club rate. We stayed for 4 days. Management staff was very friendly and provided lots of literature about attractions in Sonoma County. Site was gravel and flat. No need to level. Cable TV had over 35 channels. Free Wi-Fi worked the first two days and was intermittent on Saturday and Sunday. We played at the Park's Bocce Ball Court. The Court was in good shape for a public court. The dog run was adequate. You could walk your dog through the state park next door as long as you kept the dog on a leash and stayed on the roads. (All of Sonoma County appears to have a mandatory leash policy with no dogs allowed on any public beaches.) It was necessary to drive to attractions but the road was good and site seeing was close. We used Clubhouse #1 for a Club dinner and breakfast. Chairs and tables were first rate and the club house was immaculate. I liked the park and will definitely return.
Needed a place for one night with electricity. Older park but the front sites are well kept up. Office staff was very friendly. Bathrooms and showers were immaculate. Very dog friendly. Staff allowed me to take dog off leash and chase a ball for 20 minutes to burn off energy after our long drive. The price was right. We got six channels on TV antenna. The free Wi-Fi worked well. I did not experience the ant problems referred to in earlier reviews.
Needed a place for a one night stay with electricity. Have a 30 ft travel trailer towed by a suburban. We were given an overflow spot with Electric/Water/Sewer. Very tight spot (#308). Due to a hedge and a turn in the road, the spot was difficult to back into. The spot was so narrow, the motor home to my right had to retract his awning into his spot so I could back in. If the motor home had a slide out on his passenger side rear, I would have been unable to open my slide out. When my trailer door opened there was less than six inches of clearance between me and the trailer on my passenger side. My trailer was between the painted lines on the asphalt. The asphalt was uneven and I needed a one inch board to level my trailer side to side. I had to maneuver my suburban to not block the road when parking. The woman in the office was nice but I will not return to this park.
Front office staff was very friendly and made excellent recommendations of places to eat in the area. We needed to extend one night and the staff was accommodating but there were at least 50 open sites in the park. The dog run was huge and well maintained. The park was quiet and extremely clean. We had a concrete patio with table and chairs. This was our first "luxury resort." For the prices being charged I was surprised that we had to level one inch side to side in our spot. The way the sewer hookup was designed, I had to find a large rock to keep the end of my sewer hose in the dump site. We took this park since we had no reservations and I needed a spot with electricity. There appeared to be many discounts, I heard people receiving, but I was unable to get a AAA, Good Sam or any other type of discount. I would not return to this resort if I had to pay full price.
Spent two nights in a travel trailer. Very easy to find. Beautiful views from the campground. Sites were level and there was reasonable space between the sites. The office staff was not very professional. We had to wait for the staff to finish personal phone calls before they acknowledged our presence. The Sundance Lounge (recommended by the KOA staff) next door to the KOA served good food in large portions. Needed propane. The maintenance staff was very friendly and professional. Like the other reviewer said, they should get rid of any reference to a dog run.
The price we paid was a club rate. The front office staff was friendly and very helpful when looking for supplies, attractions and repairs in the Yuma area. We had over 2 inches of rain in a 24 hour period. The park drained well and staff moved rock and put in drainage ditches to move any large puddles. There was a nice recreation room made available for our club. A BBQ, Art Show and numerous activities were available for residents of the park. All the roads are gravel. The park backs up to a canal. The canal has a dirt walkway that is great for walking dogs or jogging.
First KOA I had been to in many years. Very friendly staff. We were led to site and positioned for easy hook up. Water faucet leaked. Contacted office and they immediately came and fixed faucet. Roads are wide and easy to drive. New picnic tables throughout the park. A decent amount of room between the RV's. Very pet friendly. Camp K-9 was great on Dog Island. This is a large fenced in area my dog could run to her heart's content.
