Very good access to the I-40 and good for a night on the road. Typical KOA- mediocre setting and out of date washrooms.

We were pleasantly surprised by this park. Our experience with camping in the US, as we have stated in previous posts, is that you either get a parking lot with hookups or "rustic" sites with no hookups- there is usually no middle ground. Although the same applied here (no hookups), the environment was very nice. Although not terribly private, the site we had in Aspen loop was clean, level and generally very nice. As stated in other posts, we had several elk wander through and even lie down in the woods around the sites- very cool. The biggest downside to it was that after paying $25 to enter the park, they dinged you for every other little thing such as the use of a computer terminal in the laundry area and $2 for every shower. This is a pain in the neck as you constantly have to carry or get change. Our suggestion is to bump the entrance rate a bit and don't nickle and dime everyone- similar to other national parks (ie. Mesa Verde). I would agree that the pull through sites are tight and in fact we had to back out of ours to get out- there was no way to negotiate the corner. We actually had to relocate to another site on the last night. We took a "tent" site in Pine loop and backed into the site- it was much more private than our original one. We would recommend this campground and would stay here again without question.

Same comments as others- nice personal service upon arrival, clean facilities, nice location, decent Wi-Fi- everything you should get from a KOA considering you are paying somewhat more. This is our 2nd time at this KOA and would stay again if passing through.

Same as other comments- this is an older KOA that needs work. Very pricey based on the quality of the product. Come to think about it, not much different than many KOA's

Before you read further please understand that we loved this park. American National parks are incredible in terms of what they offer in the way of tours and such. This park was no exception- we would highly recommend the 700 years of history tour. The park facilities like the washrooms, showers, store etc. were excellent and we had no complaints. What gets us is this- it seems like in the States you either get a parking lot experience with full hookups or absolutely nothing. We camped with no hookups at all and loved it. We did have a good laugh when we were looking for our site as they are some of the most pathetic looking things we have ever witnessed. There is absolutely no privacy and there doesn't seem to be any effort made to create attractive sites. In fact, there are times when it is hard to determine where the site actually is. We experienced the same thing at Yellowstone. All that being said we loved our stay and would certainly visit again. We come from Ontario Canada and, in general, Ontario Parks has created an amazing system of campgrounds that are serviced, private and for the most part very natural. We have yet to find that in the States.
