I gave it a 5 only because it has possibilities. This could be the prettiest park ever. Sites are small; huge trees are close together. I was there 8 days for a livestock show; the first 4 nights I was the only RV. I didn't fill very safe with all the foot traffic. There is a hedge with many openings to the apartment complex to the west. There were probably 10 people a day walking dogs and NONE cleaning up after them. I would not recommend pitching your tent in the dark! Everyone in town uses the dump station so there can be a line. Don't be surprised if someone on their lunch hour sits at your picnic table. Condoms on the ground. The only restroom I've ever seen with a sharps container. A convenience for diabetics? I don't think so. I'm not going back.
I stay here every time I'm in the area. Their long-time host can no longer work due to medical problems. They are going to a reservation only system; events, groups and regular guests. Call ahead. It is still very clean and trimmed. It is the best park in town (the State Fair and one other). Not sure if it is for sale but if I were younger, I would consider this as a possible business venture.
Friendly folks in the office. Showed me to my site. I gave it a 6 because of the noise. It is next to the I-70 exit ramp; hear truck Jake brakes and downshifting all night. Also, there is a train somewhere. No other problems. WiFi is good.
I've stayed here 8 or 10 times, mostly in November. Eight days this time which is reflected by the weekly rate. The weather was excellent this trip. They have given up on grass; completely graveled with new paved streets. Not a destination but a good place to stay. I won't call them permanent but there seems to be more long term "campers". WiFi is always good.
I started to not rate this campground but there are travelers like me who might appreciate a heads-up. It is basically for permanent seasonal users. Decks, fences and vegetable gardens take them out of the camper category. They can mow the grass and clear the brush but this is still a river bottom with humidity and mosquitoes. There is no satellite (trees) and no phone signal. A boring stay indoors. I gave it a neutral rating because of the hosts' attitude. They think if you have a router signal, you are connected to the internet. The largest font size on their website is WiFi. No internet on Monday. Host said it would be up shortly. Not to be. Monday, a week later, still no internet. Call it free if you want but if it is included, I'm paying for it. That is like saying "sorry, we are out of water." Maybe this is a wilderness experience for some but I can think of a lot places that are not shared by 1000 others. Again, some may like it but I won't be back.
Friendly hosts. Neat, clean park that has gravel roads and pads. Has picnic tables. There is a lot of highway noise but not enough to disturb my sleep. Every space was taken in my area. CAUTION: They have 85 psi of water pressure. Pressure regulator highly recommended unless you are just filling your tank.
What everyone else has said plus...Watch out for the bear! Don't leave anything out especially small dogs. Don't miss the Boardwalk Restaurant. White tablecloth first class dining. Great food. Closed Thursdays. One block west. I'll be back when I have more time.
The rate is after the Value Kard discount. Hosts were very friendly. This IS the desert folks. I would cost a fortune to keep more than a little grass green. They were constantly watering while I was there. All though there were a lot of families, kid noise was confined to the pool area. Wifi worked great. Slot was as level as most. I didn't have to unhook. Coffee is on any time. Continental breakfast from 8 to 10 am. Store is small but has necessaties. I will return.
This is a converted mobile home park; nicely done. There are still sidewalks and curbs visible. There are concrete tow vehicle parking pads. Check-in couldn't have been easier. The young girl previously mentioned, ran down and guided me in. She was very helpful when asked about local services. Pull-throughs are a misnomer. You can pull through if there is no one in the space behind you. I doubt the 100 spaces quoted. Very clean. The grass is mowed. Walking distance to historic Fort Bridger, a state park. Suggested if you are a history buff. The museum has a good selection of mountain man era books. Wifi worked great. If back this way, will definitely stop in again.
Parts of it are a mess. They are rebuilding the streets. Major work, big equipment. Detours. There was a fellow in a truck with "www.KOA" in big letters on the side. He told me there was major renovation going on. I'm not sure, but I assume he was perhaps an inspector. The trailer park section is pretty seedy. A privacy fence to block the view would cure this complaint. I was near the office and Wi-Fi was good. Kind of a squirrelly way to connect though. As others have said, nothing to write home about but I will be back. It is the only game in town. It looks as though they are trying to improve things. New owners, perhaps.
The attendants were two young people. Very friendly and business like. Described all services available. Encouraging for this day and age. I purchased a pizza (great) at check-in to be delivered. They got busy in the office and it took longer than stated. Apologized and gave me a 2 liter drink for waiting. Nothing special. Just a level, shady space. Good wifi. Many families were swimming.
This is my second time to stay here. Wonderful manager folks, live on site. Called me by name when I pulled in. I just missed a fish fry the day before. See my June 2008 review. Nothing has changed except my peace of mind. Highly recommended.
The nightly rate was for a site with electric and water only. I stopped for one night with no reservation. They were full up but found room for me. Very friendly folks. This was my second time to stay here. I will be back.
I suspect this park is very busy when the weather is warm. It is right on Lake Eufala. There are sites to suit just about anyone; pull throughs, equestrian, groups, primitive tents. It was quiet. Most of the traffic seemed to be going to the Choctaw Lodge and Casino or the golf course. Staff was very friendly. Fellow in the office was very helpful. My only complaint was the signage. You had to select and make a turn before seeing a sign letting you know whether you were correct or not. The office is at the back of the park so you have no idea what Turkey Flat or Echo Ridge mean until you find the office. There is a lot of literature available in the office covering everything the park offers. I'll be back next spring for the fishing. They are looking for "State Park Partners" to do maintenance and building projects. Might be fun to volunteer for a while.
I stayed here because of good reviews. I wasn't disappointed. This is great. Friendly staff. Well maintained. Level pad. Concrete walk and patio with picnic table. The address is 5089 County Lane 138; Carthage, MO 64836. It is east of the 71/571 split on the south side of town.
Probably the quietest park I've ever stayed in. I could actually hear the clock ticking! Looks like a mobile home park with RV sites. It was freezing cold so I asked what time they opened the next morning because I would likely need some propane. He looked at me like I had slapped him and said "Tomorrow is Sunday". I wouldn't count on being able to check in on Sunday.
I've stayed here five times in the last 12 months, once for a week ($100). I'll be here 10 days this stay. Everyone is always friendly. WiFi is good. Park is clean and convenient off Interstate (exit 116 on I 65). It was cold and rainy each time I was here (and it is again!). So there wasn't much visiting. It is convenient to the Expo Center. One exit north is all kinds of stores; gas, groceries, dining, auto parts, bank, etc. Yeah, I'll be back.
Great management. Helped me hook up. Good WIFI. Metered propane. You pay only for what you get. I topped off two partially full tanks. Movies to rent or purchase. Has cabins for rent. Eight more coming. Small store. Another former KOA.
The sign says under new owners. There is signs of remodeling in the office. Nice lady at the desk. Said I could come to the office to use WI-FI. Flying J WI-FI is available if you subscribe. I'm not sure where it was located from the park. I think this may be a park for mostly permanent residents. Definitely, an overnighter.
This park is owned by the Village of Orleans, NE (pop. about 200). There are 8 spaces. There is water, electric and sewer; but not always at the same space. I think this was laid out after a keg party. First night is free, additional nights are $10. No showers or restrooms. Police patrol the streets so it is safe. Obviously, just an overnighter.
I stayed here for 2 weeks. Rate is $100/week. They guide you into your spot and help hook up. They have several guests that have been coming for years. The second night I was there, they had a cookout for a departing longtimer. Everyone was invited. There was an ice cream social the second week. Deer and turkey visited daily. An undeveloped area is like a park (mowed). There is an open shelter for groups. All spaces are pea gravel. Common areas are grass. Shower/restroom building is clean. Whole park is spotless. Potted plants are cared for daily. The only drawback, if it can be called that, is the Bar-B-Que place a quarter mile up the highway has a live band out back on Saturday until midnight. I'll certainly go back. Sedalia is an historic town with a lot to see for its size.
I stayed here two nights. My space, C-5 was not the best. The electric and water were out near the road. After backing out of the road, a 25 foot hose just barely reached. I could not reach the sewer with 20 feet of hose. I just pulled forward and dumped when I left. Still, it would have been enjoyable if not for two idiots; one with an unmuffled Corvair and the other with a 4 ton juke box (Hummer). He would crank up his music and then go inside his MH to listen to it. Management was no help. When checking in, I asked about store hours. Open until 9PM. But when I went back at 7:20 it was locked up tight.
I've stayed here three times in the last 6 months, once for a week ($100). Everyone is always friendly. WiFi is good. Park is clean and convenient off Interstate. It was cold and rainy each time I was here. So there wasn't much visiting.
They led you right to your spot and helped you park. Trash pickup is continuous. Anytime they are by, they pickup any trash. Level concrete pad. Kind of neat watching the tugs and barges on the river. I was told WIFI was down when I checked in. A tech was working on it and should be up in 2 hours. It was. They have two catfish ponds. Though I didn't try it, I'm told the fishing is good. I will definitely stay again.
