Possibly the prettiest KOA we've ever been in, this park is located off I-70, but aside from some road noise in the front of the property where the office and the mini-golf course are located, we didn't know were so near a major interstate. The carefully groomed grounds have large pull-through sites and cabins are arranged around a small lake where campers can fish or rent pedal boats. There is an adorable pet playground and a nature trail and playground for the kids. The staff is friendly and helpful. The restrooms and showers are immaculate. Garbage is picked up from your site daily. Wi-Fi is free but the signal wasn't strong enough to reach our site which was at the back of the campground. The campground is very near a public golf course and not far from a Meijers supermarket and gas station. This is a great place to spend the night or longer.

Very conveniently located 1 mile south of I-70, 55 miles east of St. Louis, MO, this park has spacious sites. There is a laundry room, small camp store, large play area with volleyball, tetherball and horseshoes, a pool and a small lake for boating and fishing. For our overnight stay, we had an open full hookup, pull through site with free WI-FI next to the play area and a short walk to the restrooms, laundry and pool. There are seasonal sites and a tenting sites as well as camping cabins. The entire park is clean and well-maintained. We'd recommend this campground to travelers on I-70 and to those wishing to stay longer in the area. Cedarbrook is a Good Sam Park and gives the 10% Good Sam discount to members.

We spent a night at this large campground which has many seasonal and monthly sites in addition to about 40 transient sites. There are two very large open areas with pavilions, a tent area, playground, mini-golf, shuffleboard and other activities. WI-FI is free, but some of the sites are too far to get a useable signal. The Kishwaukee River runs behind the grounds and some sites back up onto the river. Showers were well located, clean and hot. The campground was clean and quiet. Blackhawk Valley is a little off the beaten path but easily located with GPS. Nice place to stay!

This large park was formerly a KOA campground. It is large with many pull-though sites, some with electric, water and sewer and some with electric and water only. There is also a large tent camping area and 10 cabins. We stayed in our Class C mini motorhome in a large, grassy, back-in site with electric and water. There is a dump, two restrooms at either end of the park, laundry, pool and hot tub. WI-FI is free and local DTV stations are accessible. This was a convenient and pleasant place to spend the night near I-15 and US 20.

This is an enormous campground near I-80, I-15, the Salt Lake City Airport and the fairgrounds. It is about 2 miles from Temple Square. Even though it is an urban campground there are lots of trees, flowers and grassy sites. This KOA has a pool and small hot tub in addition to a recreation room and a nice playground. The camp store is well supplied with food, snacks, drinks and basic camping items. There are two restroom/shower/laundry buildings, one up front near the pool and office and the other towards the back of the campground. Restrooms are accessed with a door code. A TV/game room is located near the office and there is an exercise trail through the grounds and access to a nature trail just outside. The sites are large, many are pull through and can accommodate very large rigs. They are nicely spaced with table and fire ring, free modem and PC, free WIFI and cable TV. A large RV/car wash and a Mexican restaurant are also on site. The entire place is kept immaculately clean by staff who can be seen grooming the place. We stayed at this KOA in a Class C motorhome but there are a few cabins and many tent sites. A group tent site has a sink for dish washing. A very nice feature was the free shuttle service to and from Temple Square offered by volunteers from the LDS Church every half hour from 9 a.m. One may just use the shuttle to get to and from downtown Salt Lake City or if desired a free tour of Temple Square can be arranged. We took the tour and were impressed by the articulate, friendly young guides who shared information and answered questions without proselytizing. The tour can be as brief as 20 minutes or as long as an hour depending on your preferences and you are free to walk around on your own. We were also given a coupon for 10% off at several restaurants around the Square. We would definitely recommend this KOA to tenters, RV'ers or those wishing to stay in the cabins.

We stayed at this RV park for five nights. Prospect Place is near I-70. It has 65 sites surrounding a private residence. Some are full hookup, others have electric and water only. WI-FI is free and numerous local DTV stations can be easily received. There is a dump station which is free to park patrons. Two spaces are reserved for one night stays. Though the official name is RV park and campground, a sign indicated “no tent sites.” The entire area is gravel surfaced and some of the sites are very close together but there are some trees and the place is immaculately clean and quiet. One feature we found unique among all the public and private campgrounds we've stayed at over the years are the “private” bathrooms assigned to each site. The laundry room and 8 bathrooms are located in a building next to the office. To enter one must first punch in a door code and then use a key give to you at check-in to access the specific bathroom assigned to the site. The bathroom contains toilet, sink and shower. The bathrooms and the laundry room which has 6 full size washers and 4 dryers were also immaculate. When we reserved our site we spoke with a very personable agent. She refused to take our credit card # in case we experienced a delay or change in plans which worried us a bit but when we arrived, she had our reservation intact. Unlike many other parks, we were not required to pay for our stay in advance. The office staff gave us recommendations for local places to get a propane refill and an oil change. We used both and were completely satisfied with the service and friendliness of the proprietors. In a past visit to Denver we stayed at Chatfield State Park which is a little further out from the city than The Prospect. While we liked Chatfield and also would probably like Cherry Creek SP, neither had sites available for the dates we needed so we felt very lucky to learn about The Prospect. Since the state parks charge a daily vehicle pass fee plus a reservation fee in addition to the cost of the campsite, The Prospect turned out to be considerably less expensive. There is a greenspace park around the corner with wildlife viewing and fishing. Also nearby is a Camping World and a TA truck stop and a produce market as well as other gas stations and some restaurants and take out places. We're glad we found Prospect Place and would definitely stay here the next time we visit Denver.

We used this campground as a base while visiting relatives nearby and also as a stopover while on our way to and from FL. It was one of the few campgrounds in the area open in the winter. It was quite cold during our visit and the very friendly and helpful staff instructed us to disconnect our water hose during the night. The sites are large and well arranged. Considering the time of year and the temperature, there were a considerable number of RV'ers there. This large regional park also has a boat launch and a very nice public golf course.

The campground is part of a very large resort with seasonal sites and park homes, some quite expensive, which are available for purchase. The resort is very large and has many amenities including a highly rated 18 hole golf course, beach with cordoned off swimming areas, a marina with rental boats and slips available, a store, a business center with internet access, restaurants and planned activities in season and on select weekends. The place is so large, many people use golf carts to get around. These are also available for rent. The RV sites which are available in different sizes and with or without sewer and cable TV hookups are laid out in several circles. Each site has a reasonably level pad and sites are reasonably separated from one another by trees. We spent a mid-week night there the week after Labor Day and were the just about only RV'ers there.Since we arrived after the summer season, we were given a rate of $25 per night and this included use of a golf cart. The usual rate is about double that and doesn't include the golf cart. If you don't mind not having access to all the amenities that are available at other times, this was a good buy. The marina, the store, a bar and one of the restaurants were open for a limited time during the day. Other services were only available from Thursday to Sunday or just on the weekends. One very commendable thing we noticed was that the prices in the general store and at the restaurant were very reasonable compared to other campgrounds. It must be quite crowded at the height of the season, considering how many units are owned and how many golf carts we saw parked in front of these units. However, if you want a large resort, with lots of beach area and access to Lake Sebago this could be the place for you to stay, though in-season the price is fairly high and everything except for the site the beach and some of the planned activities is extra.

Considering that the main attraction of this park is the beach and boat launch, the campground is quite nice and is much nicer than several of the local private campgrounds. It is near to both Salisbury and Seabrook, NH which have ample restaurants, stores etc. We were there a few days before Labor Day weekend and again a few days after. Naturally, it was more crowded before the weekend, but we were able to get a site without a reservation and could have stayed the entire holiday weekend if we wanted to. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We noticed a park ranger (or possibly a State Trooper) on horseback, patrolling the campground one morning. The sites are flat and generally open with little shade but they are level and well laid out so you don't feel like you are on top of your neighbors. The campground is kept very clean. We didn't use the showers or restrooms, so we can't comment on those. We saw a surprising number of people camping in tents. Many campers had dogs but they were generally well behaved and you didn't hear a lot of barking. There are some 50 amp sites, some 30 amps and some 20 amp. Bring extension cords because the boxes can be quite a distance from the site. Ditto for water - you definitely will need extra long hose. Each site had a fire ring and picnic table and some also had grills. We certainly would go back there again and can recommend it either as a stopover or for a longer stay.
