There are some things to like about this campground, but a lot not to like. First of all, the owners or office staff was very nice, very helpful. Some of the bad things. They don't take credit cards. They might have 40' sites but if you are pulling a trailer, search for another campground. I barely got into the entrance, and on exit I barely got out. The roads are all sand, packed sand, the sites are all sand, packed sand. If you are looking for a shady rustic place, and don't have a large vehicle I am sure you would enjoy this campground.

Were here to judge a BBQ contest nearby. Excellent choice for us. Little to no highway noise very quite and peaceful. Very helpful staff and wonderful neighbors. We would stay here again for any reason

Wonderful campground, great for visiting Maggie Valley. While it is true that there is a $5.00 charge for your guests, I can imagine that with their free NASCAR and movies at night on their giant outdoor big screen would draw people who are not staying at the park. In any event we really enjoyed staying here, we had a 40ft RV and a long 24' trailer with 2 big trikes on it, all fit on our site without disconnecting. We only had 30A but it was OK. I highly recommend this campground, I don't give out 9's usually.

We come here every winter ... stay awhile, it is not an overnight park, the longer you stay the nicer it gets. In regards to the 2 pet limit ... that is fine with us, in fact I have never been in a park that has allowed more than 2 pets. Losing customers over this ... hardly. I don't give out 10's very often, so it has to be something special for me to give one. Worth every penny.

It's always a pleasure to stay at this park, our 4th or 5th time. This is our choice for an overnight stop or to stop to see the sights in Memphis. Nice and quiet, no noise except for the riverboat traffic. A great deal for the price they ask. Sites are very level and pretty good size. Staff is always friendly. We would stay here, obviously, again.

A very nice KOA. President's winner for a long time, and well deserved. The road noise is here, but what KOA doesn't have road noise? We stayed for 1 night after riding Oklahoma interstates (which has to be some of the worst in the US.) It was nice to stop the shaking and relax at such a nice RV park. We highly recommend it.

As KOAs go it is better than most. An excellent and safe place to stop along the Interstate for a night. We would utilize this CG again when passing through and needing a place to stay!

Beautiful park in a beautiful part of the country, highly recommended. Convenient to Durango and just 50 mile drive to Silverton. Quiet, oh, bring some carrots, there are 4 pretty horses right next to the campground who love campers.

I have a problem with a CG which claims to have a service and then goes 3 days without providing that service. In this case it was WiFi. They had some sort of DNS issue and no one was able to fix it, thus the 3 rating. The park is old and they probably make a ton of money each year, so some sprucing up should not be out of the question. The park is the only place in town to stay and see Monument Valley which everyone should see just once. But it would be nice if Gouldings would fix issues and stop resting on their past glory.

Really seems to be more of a snow bird park than a stay a couple of days park. Has no pull throughs, unhook and back in, tight especially if the park models are on your site street. The staff is VERY customer driven, one of the best. I would stay here again and again if I am in the area.

One of the finest campgrounds we have ever stayed at. Don't think we need to say more. Location, views, facilities, everything was top notch.

I wish some stimulus money was sent their way, this campground could be SO MUCH more than what it is. It is tough for 40 foot rigs to move in around to your spots. It's location however is primo. They have a problem with the ravens eating and pecking at your sewer lines, so if you want to leave them out, cover them with a rug or something. I would stay here again. It's really the only place to stay if you want to be inside the park.

Beautiful park with some solid trees for shade during the hot days. Nice grass throughout the park . Excellent staff, convenient to Arches NP. We had a great time here, was perfect for us when visiting the area. Have never stayed at the other CGs in the area but they would be hard pressed to be any better than this one.

This park is an average CG, nothing like the 10's that others have rated. The space we had had a lot of space on one side, none on the other. In fact it was one of those slots were one pulls in from one direction and the other from the opposite direction, so your slide on the driver side was almost touching theirs. Don't know where others found all their space who reviewed. The camp store was nice as was the pool and the staff was great. The park is tight for a 40' MH. It was also not that close to the interstate to make it a great place to get off and on if just passing through. There was a nice pasture across the entrance, with some really nice horses. I would not have a problem staying here again, but I bet you can find better in the area.

I have no idea why anyone would rate this park over a '3'. The park owner was nice enough, but the 50A sites are not even close to being even. The drive out there is 5 miles of nice 4 lane and then a one land bridge with a traffic light (not the CG fault, but it is what it is). Then 2 lanes and a very small pull in portion for the CG. Trains are incredibly loud, I mean very loud. Wi-Fi worked but not super well, all in all it's not a KOA quality CG. I hope they work on getting it better, but as of now, I would never ever return to this CG.

KOA speaking this has got to be the best one. There is plenty to do and close to Mt Rushmore and Crazy Horse. A restaurant (full service) on site, horseback riding, coffee shop, ice cream shop, pancake tent, pizza place, all on site. It all comes at a price but the place was packed and we spend 4 nights there enjoying everything this place has to see, we came in a week after Sturgis rally so we didn't have to put up with all the clowns with the loud mufflers. Would stay here each and every time I come to this area!

Campground was fine. Had a great view of Tower. The staff was friendly and helpful. We stayed 2 nights, but you can see all this has to offer in about half a day. But this campground is great if the Tower is what you want to see and experience.

We stayed here 4 nights while visiting family. The park is the best in Helena, as we have checked them all out. It's convenient to the Interstate, has no noise, is quiet, clean and perfect.

Make sure you look to the right as soon as you exit coming west on I-90. You will go right past it; it's tough to see from the street. Just happened to see the R&R. We got a great site and had a nice time here. The smell of cattle is in the air EVERYWHERE in Mitchell, reminded me of growing up in Lancaster County. Hosts were great. Excellent choice for a campground to visit the Corn Palace and to spend the night.

Got a great rate here with Passport America. It is very close to Wall Drug, you can walk it, and an excellent base to see the Badlands. Sites were pull through but not long enough for the car also, but to see the Badlands you have to disconnect anyway. Hosts were excellent. Would stay here again if ever visiting the area.

This was a so-so campground, maybe below average, but not much more than most KOAs. Road noise was NOT an issue for us anyway. The pull throughs for overnighters were very adequate and we had no complaints. The office staff was nice, the escort was great. There was a smell in the office however, and I would not want to speculate what it is or was. Maybe it was one of the guests who came and left before I got there, but it was rampant throughout the office. We would stay here again if we were running late and did not want to go through the afternoon rush hour in Kansas City.

We stayed as a 1 nighter along the way. We found this campground to be quite pleasing. The noise from the highway was not noticeable and the trees in the park are just beautiful. It's not far from the interstate and we would gladly stay here again. The owner had a sign up for lunch and the office was closed but she came out of her home and over to the office to check us in and escort us to our site. The next morning she even came out and waved goodbye. Just very nice.

Had a wonderful time here. We were getting some scheduled service done at Lazy Days and showed up early, had a great site, near the big nice pool. The hot tub worked but the heater was not working to heat the water. We got a chance to walk over and look at all the new RV's. Basically had a nice quiet time. Staff was great, security was good. Would stay there again.

I have long known that the only real magic at Disney was how easily your money leaves your wallet The campground is nice, but when you figure you are paying 80.00 a night for in the end is just another campground with a pool, but then have to pay BIG BUCKS for everything else, then you kind of feel like maybe 80.00 is a little too much. Wi-Fi costs money; they have golf carts for rent at around 70.00 a day (but if you check in at 5pm your rent on the golf cart expires at 11:00 am the next morning.) Don't get me wrong I love Disney, but be prepared to bring your credit card. This place is pricey, expensive and crowded.

We stayed here overnight on our way to Florida. We asked for a site where our satellite dishes would work, and we were given site 15. It was right near the highway but we never hear it no matter how close we are, I guess we are lucky that our coach is so sound proof. The Wi-Fi worked well for my wife, but I had problems maintaining a signal consistently. The site was not level however, only the front 2 jacks came down and even that could not even out the coach. We were glad we stopped here and it was a nice place to overnight. We would stay here again.

Stayed here as a location to judge at the BBQ event in nearby Murray, KY. The owner was friendly and nice, the help in the office, however, could not have been slower and we might still be checking in if the owner had not come into the office. They say they have Wi-Fi but we never got it to work, in our out of the office and the check in staff did not know the password ... the park I guess is big rig friendly, but at 40' we were pushing the limits. The sites are very narrow and you are pretty much on top of each other. Lots of families and kids, a great place to be for the 4th of July. It is well off the beaten path, signs are pretty much missing so know where you are going.

We stayed here for four months while our house was being build back in 2006. The park has been bought and new owners are now running it and they have done a heck of a job. We enjoyed our weekend stay here and would come back again. It is convenient to the interstate and yet you hear no noise at all. The turn into the park is not difficult but be careful of cars coming around the corner from the other direction, there is a mirror on your left, be sure to use it!

This was our second stay at the park we we were in town to judge the BBQ cook off. This stay was just as enjoyable as the first and we will definitely come back next year for the BBQ contest. The Wi-Fi was a little light and forget about shade at this park. It is a very pleasant place, with great office staff and from what we could tell very nice fellow campers. Highly recommended.

We just completed our first winter down here: been here 3 months. This resort is the finest we have ever stayed at. As far as the comment of it being 90% Prevost: well that is simply incorrect and utterly wrong. There are Prevosts here but they don't even come close to 90% and maybe not even 30%. We attended all the activities in the club house and have met people who are not owners that come back for winters for over 5 years now. Friendly? I think sometimes that's up to you. The staff in the office is very nice, and we have not met a single person here who has not been anything but nice to us.

Wi-Fi in our slot worked very well. Secondary roads need little work, and it's not an easy turn off the main road once you exit the interstate, the area has built up since this RV campground was first built, including some hotels and restaurants and gas stations that you must navigate to get to the campground. The CG used to be a KOA and I can remember staying here years ago when it was. It is still nice, if you don't mind the sharp turns to get there to spend the night or even longer. We would stay there again.

We were here for an overnight visit. It had rained the day before and there was a ton of mud but since there was no grass there for starters than I am assuming they are pretty skimpy on the gravel to help with the mud. There was a time-challenged rooster somewhere near the site which started crowing non-stop from about 4 am, long before sunrise. The campground is almost 2 miles off the Interstate, but when you are heading south through Atlanta you don't have a lot of choices. I would skip this campground although the staff was quite nice.

We were here for the 2009 Women's US Open Golf Tournament held at Saucon Valley CC in Bethlehem. We really enjoyed this CG, we met a ton of nice people, camped beside a pro-golfer and got to see a lot of the beautiful scenery around the area. The CG was great for our 40' and our tow vehicle. Some highway noise but not very loud at all. Wonderful and beautiful winery down the road and make sure you go to the meat market down the street and get one of their cherry crumb pies, best I ever had. Fun to watch them train the horses in the field right next door. The staff at the office were great to deal with and very helpful. We would stay here a million more times if in the area again.

Big Rig Friendly is a stretch; big rig capable is more like it. The roads to the park are not made for 40's with tows. The trees to the sites make it hard; keep a look in your mirrors to keep from side swiping them. Staff was great. Park is nice. I won't be back because I was not comfortable with the tight squeezes.

This is indeed a park that has seen it's best days . There appears to be no investment in the park by TT corporate. We unhooked the tow, found a place, went back to the RV, drove down to the site and while we were getting ready to back into the site a guy in a golf cart parks his golf cart there and says the site is taken. TT staff said they would make him move but just goes to show you that not all members of TT are decent. We then picked out another site, backed in, hooked up the electric and nothing. Maintenance came and said it was indeed busted. I then moved to another site. The staff was way behind in their mowing also, lots of tall grass which means more insects which were the abundant. This is not a TT park I would recommend. I am sure back in the 80s or 70s this was a swell place to visit. The convenience store which is half on site and half open to the public had an odd smell, I think it too was just old and moldy.

Very nice park, owner has done a lot of nice things with the place. Coming toward the park from the I-26 direction you will need to make a left into the park. If you are towing and have a long footprint make sure you stop in time to get anyone who may be following behind you notice that you will be stopping and turning . Part of your tow will still be in the highway while you wait for oncoming traffic to clear. We used our Camp USA membership to stay at half price, what a great deal. We were in the area to judge the BBQ cook-off ... we would definitely stay here again and again.

We were there as judges for the BBQ Cook off ... the location was very close to the interstate, convenient, but lots of road noise. But the park itself was very nice and clean and well kept, safe and some very nice people working in the office. We had a great time here and would stay here again.

The park is nice, but it definitely needs some rework to manage 40ft RVs with a tow. We were in a pull thru but getting to it was a challenge. The main road going to the sites were narrow but the turns and secondary roads between the campsites were simply small and we had to go into a big hole to get into our site when turning corners. I will not stop here again and instead would try the other campground on the other side of I-75.

Are some of the buildings "old" looking, yeah, sure, but they are clean inside. Not everything is "new" for some people and just because they are 5-6 years old does not mean they should be torn down and replaced. There is free internet in the big rec room, their is a driving net, there is a trail, there is a lake, this is a quality site and well worth taking the tour and staying free. One of the best things about this CG is the activities that are well attended by the campers. From horseshoes, to pickle ball, to other activities they are all well attended and a lot of fun. If you are looking for a CG with brand new buildings maybe this is not the place for you, if you are looking to have a great time and meet a ton of other campers just like you then this is a great place.

We stayed here under a special Thousand Trails rate so I really don't know what the regular rate is. There are a ton of RV places to stay at in the Kissimmee/Clermont area, all conveniently located to all the Disney attractions. This particular resort is older with a lot of old 5th wheels and trailers that will never ever see the highway again. Lots of rust. There are also a lot of newer RVs in the resort too. The staff was nice but the washing machine/dryer setup is not really setup for someone who is going to be there for a short time as they don't take coin, you have to get a card then load it up with money so when you leave you probably will have a card with money still on it. That I guess you can't use again unless you come back to the resort. It's probably great for the long term residents though. The sites as in most Florida resorts are pretty level. No bugs that I felt bite. Nice and quiet. Big turnouts for shuffleboard. A very nice 18 hole putt-putt course that was maintained very nicely. You are located on US 192 which has a TON of attractions and eaterys up and down the road. You are about eight miles from Disney. I would stay here again.

I guess we got there late, the slots we had to choose from were not long enough for pull thrus with a tow and were not very level. In the past this was a pretty solid bet to stop overnight on the way to Florida, but there are a lot of other places to choose from on I-75 so I think we will try another one.

I don't think this is a bad place, not as bad as previous reviewers, I think it is the standard along side the interstate KOA ... nothing more, nothing less. We would stop there again on our way to and from Florida. I would not chose it as a base camp to visit Disney, etc, however.

Second stay there, it was Georgia Hot and humid but we still had a great time, the 40ft 50A sites are not all level, and some of them are pretty tuff to get to with a 40ft RV. Be careful on which one you request. 260 and 261 are solid.

This was our third visit over the last 2 years to this park. The issues I had before, the bad Wi-Fi and the un-level sites has been corrected and this is now a great campground. The hosts were fantastic, the CG is quiet and clean and well maintained. I would highly recommend it.

Got a great rate through our TTrails membership: $15.00 a night. TTrails does have some slots here, but they were all full. This place is probably very neat in the winter, we were here the end of April when most of the snowbirders had left. We enjoyed it and someday hope to come back during the winter. Beware of the entrance: 40ft RVs just take it easy and swing hard to come in. Luckily, Idaho St is not a very busy street and you should be able to swing very wide coming into the sharp entrance and small gate.

Nice small park, mosty geared to snowbirds, but we found it a nice place to stop for the night. Quiet, and quite frankly, we loved hearing the trains throughout the night, not enough to wake you out of sleep but you could still hear them. We would stay here again and would like to come back and spend more time and investigate the surrounding area someday.

Not the nicest TT campground, for sure, but yet still nice and rustic and quiet, and met some great campers there. Deer were bountfiul and friendly ... coming from Tennessee and seeing the deer in our own backyard and comparing them to these Texas deer ... well let's just say that not EVERYTHING is bigger in Texas. The fawns in Tennessee are bigger than the deer here. But still very nice to have them come up to you when sitting in a chair at your campsite. We enjoyed this campground as members of TT and it meets quite adequately and we would stay here again. I would like to see them increase the number of 50A sites (we only found a 30A available).

One word to describe this RV location: expensive. It was nice, but not nice enough to get $44.00 a night in my opinion (and I had the KOA discount). It's too expensive to use it as an overnight stop and too expensive to stay here while visiting the area. $44.00 and there is no cable TV either.

Stayed there with our Thousand Trails/Resorts of Distinction membership. Quite pleased, our site was 40ft and not much more in length, but they do limit their sites to 40ft units. The site leveled out ok, but not all sites I observed were quite as level so we jotted down those that were for our next stay here (when we make reservations). The laundry was nice and clean, the view of the lake from the sites was very nice. We stayed during the week leading up to the RV Rally in Perry and it was very quiet and not very busy, perfect for us.

Informed us about all the great Cajun restaurants including one where most of the patrons were speaking Cajun french. This is truly the heart of Cajun country.

Great park, not too close to SA but not too far away, close to Sea World, good room on sites, big rig friendly ...

Nice stop over if you have to stop in Arkansas. Be careful getting off of the exits from the Interstate and indicate your are getting off WAY ahead of time, the ramp is about 100 ft and straight onto 2-way traffic. Why anyone comes to Arkansas is beyond me! The campground was a nice place to rest and spend the night, lots of interstate noise but that does not bother us. Would stay here again!

Great park, however, pick your times you visit this area, the traffic is incredible, seems to always be backed up. No fault of the park but it would be nice if they had a traffic light at their entrance. The WiFi worked as good as any park I have ever been at. They seem to have three antenna's for you to connect to and we were back on the river and had a great signal. Nice clean big park, would go there again if we go back to Gatlinburg area for a vacation.

As far as KOA's go this might be the worse I have stayed at, new owners I am sure will turn it around but it is so close to the interstate the only thing missing was feeling the wind as the trucks flew by ... literally as loud as if you were parked on the exit ramp of any interstate. The lots were close, uneven, overall just a park that KOA should not have their name associated with in any way, shape or form. I won't stay here again.

New park. The owners are very accommodating, however I was a bit surprised at the two pieces of paperwork I had to sign for "legal" purposes, I guess they think this protects them totally against liability, but it does not if they are of course neglectful in some way, but aside from that the park is new and is not real easy to get into. The gravel road is going to cause him problems during big rains, hopefully he has plans to blacktop in the future. Once in the park is surrounding by some nice scenery. One writer notes all the rules and then cites keeping a dog on a leash, I have been using RV parks for a lot of years and I have yet to find a RV park that did not have a rule requiring your dogs to be leashed! The pool looked nice and clean, the sites well taken care of, some people don't like the fact that their are not a lot of trees, but as long as it is not a hot summer day I like the fact that I have a clear view of the southern sky for my satellite dish! I would stay here again, we had a wonderful time.

There is no swimming pool but there is an area roped off and a beach at the campground. The park is another one in the line of nice Army Corp of Engineer's CGs, this one is a little more tough to get to than Defeated Creek and Dale Hallow, and not as crowded. Very nice lakefront sites, some are pull throughs, not all sites are 50 A with sewer, but you can go to the COE webpage and reserve your site if you need that.

Had a nice time here, not much to the facility, no trees to speak of, which is good and bad, especially during the summer when it is 95 degrees or warmer. But has clear view of the southern sky for satellite reception. The WiFi worked flawlessly except the local ISP appears to have port 25 blocked so sending email out was not possible, you may want to check with your SMTP server and see if an alternative port is open for your outbound email not only for here but for other places you might visit down the road. There is some noise from the highway, but you really can't even hear it in your coach and you get used to it quickly. The meeting room facilities are nice. We live about 10 miles away from this KOA and only stayed there with a group we camp with, but I would recommend it for a weekend or an overnight site. The lack of a pool really brings this down from a 7 to a 6 on my scale, especially in the hot summer days.

Almost every spot here is great. Plenty of spots on the water. We had a buddy spot (although it was not marked as such on the web page) and there was more than enough room for our coach and their unit. It's your standard Army COE camp, very pretty, nice big lots. There is a swimming section marked off in the lake. Almost everyone on the water had a jet ski. Lots of families, lots of kids, but surprisingly very quiet in the evening. They could improve this facility with more sewer and 50 amp sites but 30 amp worked good in our motorhome.

First of all ... WIFI worked like a champ the whole time we were there. We stayed with a group from Good Sam's. This is not the first time we stayed there ... The only issue with this park, and it's always the same, is the noise from the drag strip on Friday and Saturday night (it may be more often but these are the only days we stay there). But they stop around 10 or 11pm. The park was clean, the pool nice, the store has just enough in it and the staff there are very very very nice. Our club stays there once a year and it is convenient to Camping World and Shipps RV ... We always enjoy this CG and it is close to all the Chattanooga sites. To give this a "1" just because the WiFI was not working is a real stretch. You will enjoy this campground.

This was like our 4th stay at this campground, not so much because we like it, but because we can visit family in the Atlanta area on the eastern side of the city. It is the most convenient CG for us. The real problem with this CG is; that when people come to visit us at our site, they have to pay $8.00 to get into the park as that is their daily rate to visit. When camping there you get a pass for your own car, but you have to pay the $8.00 to get into the park in your campground. Be careful going into the park, we had about 3 inches on each side of the mirrors navigating the gate. The WiFi appeared to be ok, but we did not use it because it was not free. The park was loaded with kids. If you don't like the sounds of little girls screaming and little boys yelling till about midnight, stay away from the main loop in front of the office, but if you are in a big rig, you might want to put up with the noise and take the nicer, bigger, easier to navigate lots.

Another nice Army Corp of Engineer campground ... park is on a peninsula with nice lake all around. The roads are tight around the park and it was tight with our 40 ft RV. The park is wonderful, nice gravel level sites. Quiet. Friendly. We would go back to this campground often, highly recommended.

Wonderful park with BIG sites...just beautiful, the personnel at the gate were wonderful and very helpful and always asked us each time they saw us when we entered or left with our tow vehicle if everything was ok and if we were enjoying ourselves and they were just as nice when we left. There is a great trail to walk and a nice fish hatchery next store. We are already looking forward to our next trip to this ultra nice army corp of engineers park. I recommend it as a great place to spend some serious time.

We stayed here when attending the Penn State - Purdue football game (go Lions) ... it had rained pretty well the day before and the standing water was to bad we could not find out sewer hookups and were moved to another site. It was NOT an easy place to find and is basically way off the main road and in a sub-division type setting or at least a neighborhood with houses all around the property. I think this CG served the purpose we had in mind and that was a place to park and attend the game without parking in the public parking lot as a visiting team and dry camping. I think that most of their business is parents visiting their kids going to school there or visiting teams attending a Purdue game.

Friendly check-in, nice roads leading to the park. Pleasant spot. The only problem we had was being beside a 5th wheeler who had all his outside spot lights on. The noise from the interstate is easily heard in their pull through slots. We stayed here for the night to attend a BD party in Lascassas, TN

They say they have 75 sites, I never saw them, 70 of them must be tent sites somewhere. The park needs an overhaul, it was nice and quiet though, probably because there are not a lot of people there. The staff was nice, but they were not always there and the store was shut during the middle of the day and then they did not come back when they said it would be open, and there is NOTHING in the store anyway. I would stay here again in an overnight situation but other than that I don't think it warrants a return.

We recently stayed here to drop off our coach for service. it is not the first time we have stayed there. It is an ok park, it's clean and quiet, we heard no stock car racing nor did we hear any noise of any kind. Camping World is a short walk away. It could use some WiFi. The only real bad thing about the park is the exit back out onto the main highway to get to the interstate. it is a left hand turn and there is no light and plenty of traffic going both ways.

We stayed here for 2 months while our house was being completed. The owners are very nice and helpful. The WiFi was not really dependable and it would go down and up for no reason at all. The park could use about 3 more WiFi antennas as we did not get the signal until we moved closer to the office. Many RV clubs come in and its a great place to make camp if you are going the the Lost Sea Cave, its close to the interstate but you really only hear the traffic when a truck hits the air brakes. We would stay here again.

Plenty to do here, but there are some things about the park that need fixed up. First of all unless you get near the office you are stuck in really tight places to park and turn in. I visit here and keep going back to visit my daughter who lives in the area. I would not make a trip here, unless it was accompanied with something like one of the major festivals (Chili cook-off) or another good reason to go.

Two words - stay away. Overpriced and not clean and did not appear to be safe although we had no problems. They have a brochure that makes it look great, but it's made up of mobile home parks in a bad part of town. Not close or convenient to anything, not close to the interstate. We were just passing through. Will never stay here again, it is about 14.00 higher than it should be.

We stayed here on a Sunday, the office was not open, the WiFi was not working ... I would stay here again if I was passing through, but there are a bunch of better places if you feel like driving an extra 20 miles or so.

There was really nothing to like about this place. They squeeze you in here like no other CG we have ever stayed at, we had to have 3 people move trucks and cars just to pull out when we left. The entrance into the site is seedy and dirty. The KOA staff was like any other KOA staff, friendly and nice. The WiFi does not work at all locations in the park so ask them before they park you.

Stayed here for 6 months. Stay away from the spots near the front at the entrance, the traffic on the street in front of the CG is very loud and lots of sport bikes ride down there at night.

Small CG with really nice large lots, lots of nice thick grass, very clean.

Nice location, quiet, but tight sites. Also the WiFi is basically worthless unless you take your computer and sit at a picnic table in front of the office.
