Rate reflects Good Sam discount, pricy for what it was. The good: Person taking reservation was friendly and knowledgeable. Check-in was quick. Site would accommodate our 45 footer and car. Convenient location and quiet. The bad: Wifi seldom worked. Cable TV reception was poor. Park is old and worn. Sites were laid out for travel trailers, not motor homes: Needed 20' of sewer hose, our tiny patio was 15' behind our door. Many permanent sites. Enjoyed seeing Chattanooga, but no reason to stop here again.

This is a very nice motorhomes only park that may deserve a higher rating. We were here Easter week and rate it a 6 due to crowded conditions, barking dogs, many loud children. We have stayed here twice several years ago and rated it much higher because we did not experience the above problems then. They charge the same price per night regardless of how many people and pets that you have. Therefore, for 2 adults we paid the same price as our neighbor who had 2 adults, 4 children, and 2 dogs. This policy may explain the large groups of renters: Our neighbor would have paid more to stay at a KOA!

If you want a "camping" experience you will like this park. We used it for a one night stop along I-40, and it was a mistake: It's nearly 6 miles to the park entrance, then another mile to the sites. This last mile is on very dusty gravel. We had a 50 amp full hookup pull-through, but it was not very level, sloping to the front and curb side. No cable or Wi-Fi at sites. Although 75 degrees, several smokey campfires were burning. On the plus side, friendly staff, quiet at night. We will not stay here again.

New owners have raised the rates, but have not done much to justify it, even though they have big plans. We have previously rated this park higher, but it is now only a 6 for $36/night with Good Sam discount. Wi-Fi is so slow it is useless.

This is a very nice KOA. Compared to other KOA's, it's a 10. Compared to all other parks we have visited, it's a 7, which is good from us. We took a shade site, thus our satellite would not work. They did not tell us that the cable connection was in the next site, 50' away. A construction truck was blocking the site; had to get him to move, then got to listen to construction noise as they installed a cabin. But site was very level, utilities worked fine, wi-fi was reasonably fast. Still, $40 is high for this, but we will probably stay again since it is a convenient point on our spring route.

Overall, a nice park. We stayed here 2 years ago and it has gone down hill a little: Wi-Fi seldom worked, additional gravel needed in spots, our site had a new patio but needed gravel and leveling. Still, its the best choice in Santa Fe for big rigs. Very quiet, convenient to I-25, easy drive to downtown, grocery stores only a couple of miles away.

Basically a gravel parking lot with some trees, but well kept. Sites are of adequate size for big rigs. Utilities, including wifi worked well. Office is open limited hours. We called ahead and they had our cc receipt and park map in the office porch when we arrived. We will stop here again.

An adequate overnight stop, but certainly not an 8 or 9. It is an old, worn out KOA, nothing like it's ad in TL. Many long-term sites, mostly unkempt, lots of junk. The site next to us had 2 old refrigerators outside. Quiet at night, but work trucks start leaving at 5am. Overall a big disappointment after reading reviews on this web site and their listing in TL.

This is a beautiful, professionally managed park. It is big rig friendly and very well kept. The pools and restrooms are spotless. Price reflects weekly rate in "Executive" area including metered electric. It is not a 10 for two reasons: Birds and bird droppings everywhere around our site. Wi-Fi is slow at peak times, and for this price should be fast all the time. That said, we will definitely stay here again when in the area.

Nightly rate reflects a weekly stay, spring rates. Park is well designed, utilities well placed, big rig compatible, especially center row. Since it is new, everything is clean and working. This is the site of an old motel, and apparently the old motel staff runs the RV park. While friendly, they do not do a good job of managing the park: Staff stays in the office, out of sight of the park. Non-RVers just drive or walk through. We even had a neighbor who stayed a night without paying, they never knew he was here. Mowing is done at strange times, such as 6 PM or Sunday morning. This park could easily be a 9 or 10 if properly managed.

The previous reviewer must have a different definition of "Big rig": Our coach and tow barely fit in the largest space. Park is full of construction workers and trucks, making maneuvering somewhat difficult. Careful using a credit card here: Instead of swiping the card, they write down your card #, expiration date, and security code. Now they have all your card information on a piece of paper to keep! On the plus side, utilities are well placed, Wi-Fi works fine. Sites are level with good gravel parking pads. A bit noisy at night with highway, truck stop next door, and stray cats roaming the park and fighting. We will probably try another park in the area next time.

Basic park, convenient location for Mobile attractions. Mostly permanent/long term sites, most of which are well kept. Owner lives on-site and actively manages the park. Park is clean and quiet. Nothing here for kids (a plus to us). Short terms sites are mostly together, with room for a 45' coach and tow. $22/night for FHU 50 amp pull-through! We will stop again.

A beautiful park that will be a 10 when construction is complete. Lots of construction noise and vehicles. Quite congested on weekends when owners show up with mutiple vehicles and golf carts, plus loud parties.

Easy stop on I-10. Long pull-throughs will handle a 45' coach and tow. Gravel road, grass sites. Utilities work fine. A few unkept permanent sites and the very dusty access road will keep us from using it again.

If you have children and an average size RV, you will rate this park higher than we did. Very nice for a KOA, but not big rig (45') friendly. Expensive if not using the free things for kids. Inexperienced staff for parking big rigs, sites very narrow and not level. We stopped here to see the Air Force Museum in Dayton, which was great. Otherwise, we will not use this park again.

At first sight, an average KOA. But then the owner greeted us and we were impressed: Fast check in, knew exactly how to guide and park a big rig. We had a large, level, site with concrete patio and nice table and chairs. As with most KOA's, roads and parking pads were gravel. Mostly wooded sites, but a few, such as ours, were partial shade and satellite friendly. We will stop here again.

Nice little park. Our site was not quite level, but OK. Off the road far enough to be very quiet. Sewer connections at extreme rear of site, so it you are a motorhome towing and don't want to unhook, your sewer hose may not reach.

New owners are in the process of taking over this park. They have some work to do: Buy a weed eater, pick up the trash, and order 200 tons of gravel. This park has great potential: Good location, level property, nice size sites, lots of grass. It just needs an owner on site who wants to make it nice. Currently it is very muddy if it rains. Gravel will fix most of this. We had cigarette butts and beer cans in our fire pit. Road noise is constant. We will try it again if we pass this way next year.

For a KOA, very nice. Not really big rig friendly, but it will do. Sites are small, expect close neighbors if the park is busy. Roads and parking pads are dusty gravel. Road noise from I-90, but we've had worse. Not worth the price, but a generally nice park.

Very nice park, mostly well kept permanent sites. Most roads are paved, sites are grass or gravel. Lots of shade, so no satellite reception. No cable system. But a very nice stop.

Basic park right off I-90. We had a long and level pull through, 50 amp. Wi-Fi not working, lots of road noise. Advertised as "adjacent to" Al's Oasis Restaurant, but the restaurant is really "down the road" too far to walk. Unattended before 4pm, pick a site and come back to pay. Overall, this was a real disappointment and we will not be back.

Very nice park with large sites and lots of open space. Only about 7 miles to Mt Rushmore. Very big rig friendly in a beautiful setting. Many sites are not quite level, so -1. (The leveling system on our 45' coach was unable to get us completely level.) Sites and most roads are gravel, so another -1. But overall a great park.

Road to park has just been paved, so it is now in good condition. Park is all gravel, in good condition, very little dust. No permanent sites or junk. Easy access from I-25. Very quiet except for an occasional train about 1/2 mile away. Sites are above average in size, but nothing fancy. No cable TV or over air TV. Owners live on-site. Will stop here again.

At first sight, a very nice park. Good size sites, big rig friendly. But: Electric is not properly wired at some pedestals. First 2 we tried had an open ground, so our surge guard would not let power into the coach. Water pressure was very low. Air bubbles at times. Wifi did not work our entire 3 day stay. Cable TV is very poor picture quality, and many channels listed are no longer available. We would only use this park again as a one night stop.

Well maintained older park. Quiet, no trains or highway noise. Many long-term/permanent sites, but in a separate section. Paved streets, gravel parking pads. Some sites have a concrete patio, but no chairs or tables. Pull-throughs are long, wide and level. Very big rig friendly. We will use this park again.

Unlike the previous review, noise was not a problem. Yes, it is close to I-35 and there is a train track a mile or so away. This is really a "winter Texan" place. Cafe opens October through winter. Cash or check only. Family owned and operated. Nice folks, escort to site. Long term/permanent sites are at the rear of the park. Paved roads, gravel/grass sites. Wifi a little slow, but worked. Very big rig friendly and we will use it again.

Mostly long term stays. Only 4 sites were available when we were here. Convenient to I-10 on the east side of Houston. Friendly staff, older but well kept park, paved streets and pads. Grass sites. Not big rig friendly, but doable if careful. We will probably try to find something more big rig friendly next time.

We had read the previous reviews about the loud partying on Friday and Saturday, so we arrived on Sunday. Park was nearly empty, but loud music still playing at the pool. All was quiet by 8 pm and we had a pleasant stay. Everything is clean and well kept. A few long term sites, but neat. Big rigs towing: Call ahead. Check in was fast, escort to site and we had one of the very few long pull through sites.

Rate includes $7 in taxes. Very expensive for what is here. Construction of new section means lots of noise starting at 7:45am. We wanted to see this park, but will not come back. If you want to be in town (but not near the beach), its fine. Very well kept with nice landscaping. One of the most expensive places we have ever stayed, but far from the best.

Big rigs (over 40') be careful here. Not designed for 45' rigs. Park was not busy, so we were able to pull through into the space in front of us to get our rig straight. Many sites are not level. Several on our row had both curb side axles off the ground by several inches. WiFi weak and unreliable. Cable TV system has few channels worth watching, but your satellite will work fine since there is no shade. Park is fairly new and nicely landscaped. Be sure to eat at 2Als Cafe. Looks questionable outside, but food and service is great. If we return in our 45 footer, we will ask to look at sites before parking.

This park looks like an 8, but our experience is a 7 at best. More of a trailer park than a resort. Ad in TL is very misleading. Nothing tranquil or peaceful about this place. Constant noise from I-295 and the road in front of park. Many permanent sites whose residents start leaving for work at 5am. Our site was very narrow, so we had a very close neighbor on each side. But, the food at the on-site cafe is great! We probably will not come back due to noise.

A very nice park and I can see how some people rate it a 10. We paid extra for a lake front site and will not make that mistake again. People were constantly walking through our site to get to the trail around the lake. One woman even drove here golf cart across our patio! Next door neighbor had a yapping dog that they left unattended. Park staff said they had no rules against barking or unattended dogs. Park is very well kept, far away from major roads, very quiet (except for the dog). We will return, but will not use the lake front sites.

Nice campground, but certainly not a 9 or 10. The people that rate it as such should stay somewhere really nice sometime. Our complaint is that even though we called ahead, the office was closed when we arrived at 3 PM. Note on door said to come by to pay later in the afternoon. Walked to the office at 5:30 PM (in the rain), but still closed. No method to leave a check or cash payment as many parks have at this time of year. Owner knocked on our door at 7:45 PM, and wasn't too polite in asking for payment. Walked back to office (in the rain) and paid. On the plus side, utilities and Wi-Fi worked fine.

This used to be a great KOA. Now it is an average KOA at best, closer to a bad KOA. New management is not friendly or helpful, just here to take your money. Used to be a very clean park. Now has lots of permanents and junk. This park is a good example of why we increasingly avoid KOA's. On the plus side, utilities and WiFi work fine. Park is far enough from I-25 to be quiet.

Convenient to I-25 but far enough away that it is very quiet. It is ten miles to downtown Santa Fe. Roads and parking pads are gravel, in generally good condition. We had a "pull through patio" site which got us a large concrete patio with nice table and 4 chairs, well worth the extra price. Unfortunately the owners have let some permanent sites with lots of junk develop. But it is big rig friendly, check-in was fast, and views are nice. We will stay again.

The OK RV park is OK. A convenient stop, but certainly not a "destination" park. Fine for a couple of nights to see nearby attractions. A gravel parking lot with long, narrow sites. All utilities and Wi-Fi at site work well. You will have a close neighbor at busy times, but when we were here they were parking every other site, so plenty of room. Walking distance to McDonalds for breakfast.

This is a great small park with friendly owners living in the park. Everything is spotless and well maintained. Mature trees and landscaping, but satellite will work at most sites. Only a few long term sites and no junk. Some highway noise at the front, but little traffic at night. All utilities and WiFi at site work well. Roads, pads, and patios are pea gravel in excellent conditions, very little dust. Lack of pavement and cable TV are all that keep this park from being a 10.

A pretty nice park, but our experience was bad. Planned to stay 2 nights, but left after one. 550 sites, 525 permanent. We were the only unit in the short term sites, and were not welcome. Too many annoyances directed at us to list. Shame on "Big Rig Best Bets" directory for their glowing review of this park.

Rate is for "Premium View" site, additional $10/night. Great site, end of row with view of golf course and mountains. But all sites have a nice view, so you could easily skip paying for a premium site. All sites are above average in size, level, paved, with paved patio and table. Paved roads are wide, plenty of room for big rigs. Very quiet day and night. We will definitely come here again.

Great location, short, paved walk to beach. Family that owns and runs the park is great. Utilities and Wi-Fi at site work well. Park is very clean, sites are level, parking pads paved. But the sites are small and very narrow. We had the largest site in the park and our 42' coach and tow filled the length. Park is always busy, so you will have a close neighbor. Few kids here in October, so not a problem now. Noise from railroad goes away at night, but near the front of park there is some street noise at night. Overall, we enjoyed it for a few nights and will return.

Beautiful, first class. Only 2 small complaints. No WiFi at site, have to walk to clubhouse; and had noise from gate house at our site (104). People honk their horn or stop to talk to the guard. Ok during the day, but horn and loud voices right outside your bedroom at 11pm or 5am is not necessary.

A very nice park that could be a 10 except for barking dogs, speeding drivers, and too many permanents/workers. Does not really feel like a "resort", but the location is great, sites are large and level, everything is paved, and management is friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi at site is fast. We will stay here again.

After reading the previous reviews we were very disappointed. The park is not at all big rig friendly, in fact the 50 amp sites are some of the most narrow. Never met the friendly, helpful staff either. Our biggest problem was the constant sewer odor from the septic system near our site. On the plus side, the park is clean and well kept, better than many KOA's. Utilities and WiFi worked fine. If you have a travel trailer or class C, the sites are of good size. But due to site size for a class A, management attitude, and sewer odor, we will not return.

The previous reviewer must have an attitude problem because his review is totally inaccurate. Our rating of 9 is for the new south side for class A coaches, but the older north side is well kept and we would rate it 7-8. The park is very quiet at night because it is about 100 yards off highway 191. Great views all around. Staff is not very friendly, just here to take your money. Only discounts are for AAA and FMCA. Be sure to ask because they don't tell you unless you ask. The campground next door is a dump.

A convenient and quiet stop, close to I-70 but far enough to eliminate road noise. It's a gravel parking lot, level, with sites slightly larger than average. Clean and well kept. Many permanent sites, but they are to the rear of the park. Not a destination park, but fine of a few nights to see the Grand Junction area. We will use this park again.

An older KOA in need of better grounds maintenance, but nicer than many KOAs. Far enough from I-70 that it is very quiet. Has WiFi at site, long level pull-throughs, but narrow.

Agree with previous review that there is an unpleasant odor in the office, like a pet shop that has not been cleaned for a few days. The office/store looks neat and clean, but the odor is there. The park is in pretty good shape, especially for a KOA, and the price was reasonable. Everything worked well including the Wi-Fi at site. Roads and parking pads are gravel and very dusty. Site sizes are inconsistent, but we had a large pull-through with plenty of room on both sides. Water hook-ups are also inconsistent: Some are about a foot above the ground, others a couple of feet, ours was 5 feet high! Permanent residents drive too fast and kick up the dust, but overall the park is fine.

Old, run down park, full of permanent residents. Lots of kids and barking dogs. Sites are very small and close together, roads are very dusty. Perhaps the worst park we have every stayed at. Planned to stay 2 nights, but left after one. We will never even consider this park again. "Resort"??

Very nice, well landscaped park. Owners live on-site and keep the park spotless. However, no WiFi, no cable TV, no credit cards and sites are pretty narrow. The owner told us that they took out the WiFi because people complained that it was too slow. A brilliant business decision! The park looks like a 8 or 9, but for $30 cash or check only, its a 6.

Since our last visit improvements have been made to roads and parking pads. All are gravel and in good condition. Park is very quiet, but it is a campground, not an RV park. It was 82 degrees and several people had camp fires going. Not really big rig friendly if the park is crowded. We had to have our neighbor move his truck so we could leave. We will stay here again, but there are better choices if you have an RV 40' or greater.

This is a convenient stop on I-24. Small Exxon truck stop just before the park makes refueling simple. Roads and parking pads are gravel, level, and in good condition. WiFi at site works fine. Some hookups are badly placed, especially sewer, but owner takes you around in his golf cart to pick a site that works for you. We had a long pull-through near the rear of the park that was quite large. Could have some road noise near the front. We will definitely stop again. Would be a 7 if not for the permanent sites.

Nice, well cared for older park. Lots of fresh gravel on roads and parking pads. Has helpful owners. Hook-ups are in good condition and worked well. WiFi at the site, but it was slow. Many side by side hookups, but park was not busy, so they did not park anyone side by side. Not quite as quiet as advertised: 1.4 miles from I-70 exit, but only about .3 miles away from the highway. Not really big rig friendly, so call ahead if 40' or over.

Rate reflects KOA discount and, like all KOA's is high for what you get. We don't use the hot tub, etc, and don't like to pay for it. However, this is a very nice KOA. We were treated very well: Speedy check-in, complimentary cookies, escort to site, propane $3/gallon. Easy on/off I-25 with a small convenience store with truck islands (and great chicken fingers) next door. Long-term sites on the outside row are well kept. Gravel roads and parking pads are in good condition. Grass between sites is much nicer than the all gravel KOA's. We will definitely stay again.

A nice KOA and very busy. Fills up many nights, so call ahead. Sites are of average size and everything is in good order. Easy on/off I-25 but quiet. Free pancakes are good, but cook is a real jerk. We will use this park again, but will not go near the cook.

The previous reviewer must have a small unit because these sites are very small, especially narrow. Our rating of 5 reflects our experience, but it is a nice park and most will rate it higher. Our problems: Rigs over 40' are parked on the back row, giving more room to maneuver. These are probably the worst spaces in the park. They are not level, the sewer connection is a foot above the ground, and there's old tires and scrap metal at rear of park. The gravel had asphalt chunks mixed in, that were large enough to make walking difficult (space 105). In front of us, space 94, a number of people were living in a small, old, motorhome. Not sure what was going on, but visitors came at all hours. We will not stay here again.

We stayed 2 nights to visit White Sands National Monument. This is the closest park to the Monument, just on the west side of Alomagordo. It started out as a mobile home park, but is now mostly RV's. Back-in spaces are quite large since they were built for mobile homes, but all were rented to long-term RV's. The pull-throughs are long but narrow with side by side hookups. All sites are level. WiFi at the clubhouse, but we could get it in the coach 8 spaces away. This worked fine for 2 nights and we would have given the park a 7 if not for the close neighbors. Manager is very helpful and gave us area and state maps. As advertised, park is very quiet. It's several hundred yards off the highway and about a mile from the train tracks.

We generally avoid KOA's because they are not a good value for a couple traveling with no children. However, this one appeared to be the best choice in the area. Sites are wide and long, very big rig friendly. Everything is in good condition. No permanent sites or junk. Probably the nicest KOA we have ever seen. However, $41 is very high for what you get, check-in is painfully slow as they try to sell you site upgrades, dinner delivered to you site, etc. Water is the hardest we have ever encountered. Don't fill your fresh water tank with this stuff.

This was a convenient stop on I-20. Nothing fancy, but clean, with paved roads and level gravel parking pads. Escort to site, wi-fi at site, but a bit slow. Mostly long-term/permanent sites that are generally well kept. Park can fill up each night, so best to call ahead by mid-day. Person on phone was very nice and helpful. We would use again for a night or two.

Just what the traveler is looking for: Clean and neat, long and wide sites, good hook-ups, WiFi at site. Roads are paved and each site has a small concrete patio. If the wind is out of the south, there can be a little road noise, but not serious. Mowing could be neater: Large clumps of grass left on all the patios. Overall a very good stop and we will use it again.

A very clean and well run older park. WiFi at site works well. It's on a major highway, so there is some noise: -1. Sites are average to small, patios are tiny, parking pads (if you have one) are too small for a large coach: -1. $34 after Good Sam discount is a little high for this: -1.

Based on some of the previous reviews, this park was a pleasant surprise. Nothing fancy, but clean and neat with large spaces. Nearly all spaces are pull-through, gravel pads, FHU, and level. Gravel roads are in good condition. No shade, so there is good satellite reception. Many long-term sites appear to be workers who leave early in the morning. The park is 6 miles south of I-20, so it's very quiet. We will use this park again.

This is a clean and neat basic RV park. Rate is Passport America with a $3 charge for 50 amp. Park is about 3 miles north of I-20, so it is quiet. Roads are tar/gravel, pads are concrete. All in good condition, so no mud. Wi-Fi at site works well. No outside storage allowed, so long-term sites are neat. Would have rated it an 8 if management was friendly/helpful. They live next door but only come to the park at 4:30pm to take your money. Not even a "thank you" when paying!

At the Passport America rate of $15, this park is just fine. At the full rate of $30, it is far overpriced. Roads and pads are gravel in fairly good condition. Sites are level, most are pull-through, and all are FHU. This worked fine for a one night stop and we would use it again. The negatives: Sites are narrow, "patios" are very small areas concrete blocks laid on the ground, long-term/permanent sites are not well kept. On one side, we had a residential refrigerator and office chair outside the camper, other side was doing repairs to water heater (with a hammer), and behind us the 5th wheel had roofing supplies stored under the trailer. Just not a visually pleasing place.

I notice many previous ratings are 10's, but an 8 from us is very good. Roads and pads are gravel in good condition. Sites are mostly level. Hook-ups work fine and there is WiFi at the site. Far enough off the highway to be very quiet. We would stay again if in the area.

A very nice ex-KOA right off I-95, NC exit 98. There was some highway noise and a nearby railroad, but not bad. Person taking the reservation on the phone asked all the right questions, and had an excellent site ready for us. Has good gravel roads and parking pads. Has shade or sun sites that are all level. Free WiFi works great. We will stay here again.

This is a beautiful ocean front, campground that starts out as a 10. But there are extra charges for 50 amp ($5/night), cable TV, and WiFi ($23/wk), so -1. The WiFi is very, very, slow and nearly worthless, -1. Barking dogs, -1. "Weekenders" bring everything they own: 2 cars, 2 dogs, dog pens, golf carts, so it can become a little crowded, -1. Some people were even roping off the corners of their site to keep neighbors from encroaching. We will not be back.

New owners are upgrading this old CG on I-95. New office/store, bath house, and power pedestals so far. Owners live on site and are very friendly and helpful. We had a large pull-through in the grass. It's close to the highway, but noise was not a problem. Also, there were some train horns at night, but somewhat distant. Were some long-term sites. We would stop here again.

This is our third visit and we have rated it a 10 in the past. However, our check-in was not up to their usual standards. First, our first choice of sites was not available, so we unhooked our car to scout available sites. A resort employee had parked behind us and acted as if it were a great inconvenience to let us out. It's been a hard winter. Our parking pad and patio were covered with leaves and sticks, so bad that we bought a leaf blower to clean it ourselves. The grounds crew showed up a couple of days later and cleaned the entire site. It's still a great resort and we will stay here again. But for this price, which reflects the 15% FMCA discount, we expect friendly employees and a well kept site.

Park is only 1 year old, so everything is new and works well. Rate is simple: $40/night including taxes. Weekly rate is $240, 7th night free. No discounts, but an excellent value. Most sites are pull-through. No shade sites, so satellite friendly. 50 amp FHU with cable at all sites. Some noise from I-95 but not significant. If you have slides on the curb side there is not room to walk on the pavement. Patio is very small, just large enough for the picnic table, but all sites are nicely landscaped. We will definitely stay here again. This park would be a 10 if we had never stayed at Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort, which is absolutely the best, but more expensive.

Nice basic park in a quiet setting, but just off SR 207 (I-95 exit 311) and close to downtown St Augustine. Roads are sand/gravel and in slight need of repair. Sites are sand and grass. Your choice of shade or sun sites. Cable at some sites for additional $2/night. Our rate is for 50 amp full hookup, no cable, Good Sam discount. Most sites are very level. Wi-fi is now available at your site. There are a few permanent sites that are not well kept, but current owners no longer offer any lease longer than weekly. We will stay here again.

Very nice campground located at the Tom Johnson Service Center, adjacent to the dealership. All sites are back-in, 50 amp FHU, with concrete pads and patios. All roads are paved. Excellent cafe for breakfast and lunch at the service center. No shade, so satellite friendly, but no cable. Wi-Fi is at the service center, but the closest sites may be able to receive it. No playground or pool, pluses to us. Very clean and quiet. We will definitely stay here again.

Price is a little high for a basic park, but is in line for this area. Park is well kept, sites are level, strong Wi-Fi signal. Some sites have concrete patios, most do not. Many long term sites, but all are neat and well kept. Convenient to I-95 but far enough off that it is very quiet. Mostly older folks, like us, so neighbors are quiet. Nothing here for kids, a plus to us. We will use this park again.

Nice basic park and a convenient stop on I-95. Sites are level, Wi-Fi works well, park is generally well kept. Some ruts and muddy spots in sites, but most are fine. Call ahead if you need 50 amps as most sites are 30 amp. Many long-term sites but they are well kept. We will use this park again.

Rate reflects monthly rate of $525 plus electric. This is our second stay. We use the long-term sites so we have to connect water and sewer under the coach. Standard RV sites are available, all are back-ins, $180/wk. The new management team is great. Much better service than the previous manager. Wi-Fi is out of range in the long-term sites, but its a short walk to the club house to get it. Should work fine in the standard RV sites since they are around the club house. Very nice pool. We will be back.

This is a fairly new KOA, so it's clean and everything works well. Rate is for 50 amp FHU site: $36 KOA discount rate plus $4 tax. Not a good bargain for what is basically a gravel parking lot; no landscaping, only a few small trees. A previous review mentioned concrete patios: False. Nothing here but gravel. However, it is in good condition with no ruts, pot holes, or muddy spots. Sites are level and of adequate size for our 40' coach. Wi-fi at site works well. Some noise from interstate and a railroad about a mile away. Noise varies based on wind direction. We stayed 2 nights to see Cheyenne, but would only use this as a one night stop in the future.

This is a very nice, city-owned park with view of Scotts Bluff. Sites are much larger than average with paved roads, parking, and patios. Wi-Fi at our site. Rate reflects GS discount. Park is very well maintained and quiet. Only negative concerns site design. We have a 40' coach with slides on both sides. The electric pedestal and water hook-up are very tall and right against the parking pad. In order to open our street side slide we had to park partially on the patio. But this was a small inconvenience in order to enjoy this nice park.

$33 rate is Good Sam rate of $29 plus $4 occupancy tax/night. This is a nice park: clean and well maintained. It's close to interstate, but pretty quiet. Full hook-ups and Wi-fi at site all worked well. Most sites are pull throughs. Long term/permanent sites are back-ins around the perimeter of the park. Some reviews have mentioned noise from Harley Davidson dealer next door. Was not a problem for us: all is quiet after 5pm. We would definitely stay here again.

A good overnight stop: but vastly over-rated by Trailer Life, which is common if you buy a big ad. Also over-rated by some on this web site, which is quite unusual. Maintenance is overdue: grass needs to be mowed, mini-golf is in disrepair, some roads (ours especially) need ruts filled and gravel added. It would be muddy at our site if it rained. The park needs a general litter pick-up. But it has good points. It's close to I-80, but there is not much noise. Wi-Fi at the site works fine. There are shade or sun sites available. Most sites are level. There is a nice golf course next door. There are few long-term residents, but the ones that are here need to clean up their sites. We would use again as a one night stop.

Nice park with a c-store, gas and diesel and a grill. They had good hamburgers. The Wi-Fi is in the store, not at the sites. The road noise is constant, but this is a smooth section of interstate, so a fan drowns out a lot of it. Very well kept park with level sites. Would be an 8 if not for road noise and Wi-Fi not at site. We would stay again for a one night stop.

Most sites are pull throughs, excellent gravel roads, shady and grassy sites. Park is well kept with few seasonal sites. Very nice tent area. It's close to interstate, but far enough there is little noise. Train track is about a mile away, so some noise from that. We were escorted to our site. No satellite reception because of trees. No cable, but many over the air channels. Electric, water, sewer all in good condition. Wi-Fi signal weak, but usually works fine. We would definitely stay here again.

The park is heavily wooded and seems to be a weekend or summer place for nearby cities. Many seasonal sites, but most are well kept. The good: Lots of shade, trees are trimmed so nothing scrapes the top of coach. The sites are level and well graveled. Electric and water are fine. The bad: Lots of shade, no satellite reception. There is no cable TV system. Most sites have no sewer. No escort to site and trash in the fire ring. We would use this again for a one night stop, but nothing more.

A good overnight stop, not a destination park. Friendly staff, escorted to our site. Has a nice, clean laundry room. It's close to the interstate, but very quiet. The sites are a bit small and there are many long-term sites, but they are neat and well kept. The utilities and Wi-Fi worked fine. We would stop here again.

This is a very nice park, but not really big-rig friendly. We called 2 days ahead for a "big-rig towing" pull-through. But when we got there we found the park had only 2 sites that we would fit in and they were taken. Solution was to block the entrance to another site that was vacant. This is really a summer destination park for older persons. Park is extremely well kept and there is absolutely no junk. Owners live in a house on site. Far off the highway, so very quiet.

We called ahead and were able to get a river-front site with a large concrete parking pad not 50 feet from the Mississippi River. Most parking pads, however, are gravel but all sites are level. The park had just reopened after being flooded for a week by heavy spring rains, but the owners were working very hard to get things back in shape. The park may be a 9 after it is back to normal. Only noise at night is tug boats on the river.

Nice KOA, but not a good value, especially for an overnight stop, hence the 6 rating. They are trying to be a "destination" park with a small petting zoo, nightly campfire circle, and a small cafe with a limited menu. Owners were very nice and the park was well kept, especially for a KOA. But we did not think it was a good value ($40 less KOA member discount) and will not stay again.

This is an older park that is actually on old "Route 66" but also right next to I-40. Call ahead if you need a 50 amp pull-through because there are only 10 or 12 of them. These sites have side-by-side hook-ups but are so large that it was not a problem at all. All the 50 amp pull-throughs were full by 6pm, but many smaller 30 amp sites were available. Park is about 4 miles from town and there is nothing between the park and town. Park was clean and well kept, but nothing fancy. Great overnight stop and we will use it again.

Small campground right at summit of Raton Pass, 7 miles north of the town of Raton. Great views, very quiet, but no shade and not really big-rig friendly. Call ahead if you have a big-rig towing because there are only 2 or 3 pull-throughs that you will fit in. Owners are quite nice and everything was in good condition.

This is an "Older persons" mobile home park with two types of RV spaces: Short-term are back-in only, $180/wk, wi-fi available. Long-term are actually mobile home spaces: Some back-in and some pull-through, $525/month plus electric (works out to $20/day), no wi-fi. We stayed 6 weeks in a long-term site that was shaded and very quiet, but with 2 downsides: The water and sewer connections are under your vehicle and you are expected to mow your grass with a push mower they provide. We were here to visit family in Denver and this was a great location for us. The park is older but well kept, quiet day and night, and reasonably secure with only one way in and out. We will definitely stay here again.

This is pretty much a typical KOA. Staff was friendly and everything worked. Right off the interstate, but a fan was adequate to drown the noise at night. No cable, but several over the air channels. Interior roads in bad repair: Ruts from rain wash and there seems to be a couple of water leaks or underground springs that made the way out from our site go through a mud hole. We and others avoided this by going the "wrong way" on another road. However, we would stay here again as a one night stop.

This appears to be an older KOA with some recent improvements. Cable system and electric boxes appear new. Fresh gravel on most sites and roads, but could use some more on roads. Long, level pull throughs. Staff very friendly and helpful. We would rate it higher except that is is right next to a rough section of interstate and the trucks "thump" through all night. The fan that we use to drown the noise was not adequate. We realize the owners can't help the noise, but we probably will not stay here again.

Older park, but new owners (3 yrs ago) are making improvements. Fresh gravel on roads and sites, recent cable system, electric posts appear new. Everything worked fine. We requested and got a level pull through, but many sites aren't quite level. Park is about a mile off I-40, so it is very quiet. We would stay here again.

New construction, so everything is clean and works. Paved roads, sites, and patios. All sites are level and landscaped. No permanent units allowed. One of the nicest, best run parks we have seen. No pool or playground, so doesn't attract kids (a plus to us), but there are a few families with kids here.

One of the nicest parks we have ever visited. All roads are paved, and all sites have paved parking and patios. Since this is a "condo" park, each site is individually owned and amenities vary by site. Also, some sites are a bit narrow, but all are nicely landscaped. We stayed in a "Forest site" which is the cheapest. It was one of the largest sites and backed up to a golf course. Plan to drive the one mile to the beach, but you can walk or bike. There is ample parking at the beach access point. We will definitely come back.

A very quiet country setting. The nearest grocery and fuel are about 9 miles. It is very well kept with owners living on site. There are lots of kids on the weekends, but well behaved and quiet hours were observed. It is worth the drive from I-26 to stay here and we will come back.

We stayed here to attend "Camp Freightliner" since the park is only 5 miles from the Freightliner service center. The park is mostly seasonal or permanent residents and is poorly maintained. A lawn mower and some gravel would fix the most glaring problems. We had a 50 amp big rig site that was pretty level with good electric voltage and water pressure. Cars start leaving the park at 5am, I guess going to work, and the noise from the interstate is especially noticeable at night. The staff is very friendly and the park is very convenient to I-85. There is no cable TV or internet access.

Very convenient to I-81, but just far enough away that it is quiet. We use this as a one night stop between NC and NY. Big rig sites are long and wide and somewhat away from the pool and other kiddie activities. We have stayed here 3 times, each only one night.

Very overrated by Woodalls, and the park's own ad. We reserved a lake-front site, but when we got there they gave us a site nowhere near the lake, plus another rig was already in our assigned site. (No escort to site.) Unhooked our toad and drove back to office where they gave us another site that was only 30 amps. Drove back to the office and they gave us another site that was so narrow that we couldn't open our slide-outs. Drove back to the office and asked for our money back: Then they escorted us to a nice site by the lake. Other than a nice pool, park is only average and we will not stay here again.

Slightly above average for a KOA, but must have absentee owners because the staff doesn't really care if you stay here or not. Our only request at check-in was for a level site. To get our motorhome level both wheels were off the ground on the curb side. Published rates look average, but then there is an extra charge for cable, etc. By the time we got a level site and paid for the extras, we wished we had stayed somewhere else.

Very nice and well kept park. Not crowded in spring and fall, which is when we visit. We stay in the middle of the park instead of nearest the ocean because the middle does not fill up even on weekends in spring and fall. Good water pressure, good electric voltage, prompt trash pick-up twice a day. Roads are paved, but sites are grass, so some are not completely level.

This is an older park. The owners are also older, and rely on hired help to maintain the park. Water pressure is good, electric voltage can be low on hot days. Not all sites are level, but most of the back-ins are more level than the pull-throughs. There are many extended stay sites for construction (pipeline) workers. They are good neighbors, but go to work early (starting at 5 AM) six days a week. They, and the park, are quiet at night. We stay here to visit relatives in NYC and use the train from Harriman, NY, to get into the city at Penn Station.
