Nicely maintained park; clean bathrooms; sites were mostly gravel, but level is questionable. Grass in between each site. Shade trees on each site but some are smaller than others, so shade can be limited. We rated this average for a couple of reasons. The first is the sites are very close together and the gravel space to park in is very narrow. The trees can be a hinderance to pulling in or out. The best sites, front row of the park, are reserved for the big rigs. These sites are wide, very level, nice concrete patios and chimineas. A few of the second row sites had patios but no chimineas that we saw. We are not in agreement with a park giving special treatment to big rigs for site amenities over fifth wheels or travel trailers when we all pay the same price. The other thing that gives this park an average rating is that a rock band was practicing at an adjacent property from about 3pm to midnight. Although it appeared that the building they were practicing in was quite a ways from the park, the sound traveled straight down all the rows, bouncing off all the rigs. We were in a location farthest from the source and it felt like the band was in our trailer. When quiet time is 10pm, but the neighborhood band plays until midnight, I don't see that being quiet time. We feel that the owners of the park should try to do a better job at minimizing the noise disturbance. We would not stay here again.
The managers stayed late to check us in (we had a freeway detour that got us lost in Sioux Falls). Very friendly staff, clean park, clean facilities. Utilities worked as listed. I-29 is right next to the park so freeway noise may be a concern (it didn't keep us up). There are some real nice mature shade trees, but it appeared that those sites were for big rigs or well-in-advance reservations. We only needed it for an overnight stay and it suited our needs. We would stay again if needed.
I would give this a 10 except for the poor directions provided to find this park. Trailer Life was not very descriptive about the funky "U" loop that is required to be made on I-435 to get to this park, let alone how to find the entrance to the park. We tried calling the office for directions but never reached an actual person; only recorded messages stating their hours of operation were from 9-5??? At an RV park?? Anyway, aside from that, the park is very well maintained, bathrooms and showers are very clean and in good working order. All utilities at our site were working fine. The pool, rec room and store were also very well maintained. The office/store and pool hours seem to be regulated around when the employees are working, which is 9-5pm, so if you pull in after that, don't count on anyone being around. The bathrooms/showers and laundry were open all night, though. The location of the park is right next to I-435 and some auto servicing/manufacturing plants, so noise was pretty constant, but didn't keep us up at night. The park itself is on a hillside facing the freeway, so not much park privacy from the passing traffic surrounding the park. The amusement park, Worlds of Fun, looked like a great park, but we stayed there towards the end of their season, so the park was only open on the weekends. What a shame because it looked like an awesome park! I would highly recommend staying at this RV park, especially if you want to go to the amusement park as a bonus to your trip or the destination.
Great owners, great park. We stayed 2 nights as a lay-over to South Dakota. The owners purchased the park in 2006 and it appears they have done quite a bit of remodeling (looks like it was a KOA when they purchased it). Sites are gravel, very easy access for big rigs. Pool was clean and very refreshing. Bathrooms were spotless and had music playing, which is a nice touch. The rec room has a billiard table, a couple arcade games and a ping pong table which we enjoyed. Laundry facility is adequate and very clean. We would definitely stay here again.
One of the best KOA's we have stayed at. We only intended to stay overnight, but Casper is very charming and the park was so well kept and maintained we felt comfortable extending our stay. Owners are super friendly and accommodating. Park facilities are very well maintained and managed. There are long-term residents in the park but all the sites and trailers were clean and well maintained. Very quiet park during the day and night. Shade trees are abundant, at least two at every sight, some are still growing so shade is not as much as the more mature trees. We would definitely stay again for any length of time.
We are rating this average due to a few things. The couple that manage this park do not communicate very well with each other. One will say something is ok to do, then the other one says its wrong and that's not park policy. The park also states it's family friendly, and although they provide a playground, which looks like it hasn't been used in years, we felt like children were not to be seen or heard. There were families staying in the park during our stay, but we never saw them unless they were going to the showers. They do provide good pet areas. There is an extensive dog run and dog wash area. The bath facilities are spotless, as are the rest of the facilities. The owners seemed a little too festidious and demanding in their park policies. We wanted to stay longer to explore the Flagstaff area, but we moved on because of the way we felt at the park. If you are a senior citizen traveling in a big expensive rig, you will be welcomed and treated like royalty at this park. We would choose another park to stay at if we passed through Flagstaff again.
For being out in the middle of nowhere, this park is pretty decent. There is a gas station and convenience store with the park. Sites are very large and easily accessed. Well maintained; clean; very helpful and friendly staff. Security patrols all day and night. Individual bathrooms which we really liked. Each one has its own toilet, sink and shower. Very nice. The downside of the park is its location; about 10-15 minutes from any shopping or amenities (Winslow) and the wind gusts that go through the park all day and night. They even have a sign at the registration desk that states winds can reach 75 mph. After having to take our awning in and out too much, we just settled on leaving it pulled in, which is tough because there are very few shade trees, and what trees are there are immature not fully grown, and it does get hot. With all that, we would still stay here for a couple nights if we passed through again.
Needles is Needles, but at least this was a pretty decent park. It had just rained heavily that day so it was extremely humid and warm. The sites are all gravel, some have decent shade trees and some have oleander bushes for shade, and shade is critical in Needles. Park is well maintained; staff is very friendly and accommodating. It's good for a couple nights but not longer. We would stay overnight here again.
I don't know about any of the amenities because we drove in and drove right back out. We chose this park because of the average review TrailerLife Directory gave it. This is not an RV park that any family would want to stay in. From what we saw when we pulled in, there were numerous long-term residents in broken down, old, trashy trailers. Some of the residents that were out and about looked very questionable. The park is located in a run down part of town. I will not recommend this park to anyone.
We had originally planned on staying in Barstow, review of that fiasco reflected in campground review, and were desperate to find an RV Park for the night. It was about 7pm when we called to check availability. We didn't know it at the time, but we spoke with the owner who was more than happy to accommodate us. Sites are easy to get in and out of. Clean park and well maintained. We only stayed overnight and wouldn't recommend park for an extended stay as it backs up to major railroad tracks with constant use. There are many long-term residents in the park; some keep their sites very nice, others don't. The park was very quiet at night, despite the trains going by on a regular 30 minute interval. Met the owner next morning at check-out; very nice and friendly. We got a better look at the overall appearance of the park and it wasn't bad. If we had to stay overnight there again we would.
