Convenient location next to I-80 & food. Sites were dirt and level. I thought Tengointernet services was bad to nonexistent until we tried using this campgrounds Wi-Fi. We have had 16K dial-up connections that worked better than this. It took 16 minutes for weather.com to load. There are 4 different routers here, and all must funnel through one very limited bandwidth. Sadly, the park was only 1/3 filled. I would hate to try to use WiFi when the CG was crowded. I would NOT stay here again.
Old CG that is way overrated. Tengo Wi-Fi was slow; but that's normal for Tengo. I do not know why CGs use Tengo. Tengo certainly is not customer friendly. Opted for 2nd highest priced site and it was not level. Picnic table was right next to sewer drain for next site over. I would not stay here again; I would choose some other option.
Great sites; good access to I-70; gravel and level. However, poor rating is due to inadequate WiFi. WiFi is adequate, not fast, during the middle of the night, but between 4:00 pm and 10:00 pm, it becomes "all stop." Bandwidth is inadequate for 2012 when most folks travel w/laptops, iPads, & iPods, Kindles or the like, or other android devices. The last CG used Tengo and it was slow too, but this KOA is using an independent ISP. While everything except WiFi, was great, I would seek another CG hoping their WiFi would function better.
Reasonable CG w/paved roads and level sites. However, wifi is horribly slow. CG uses Tengo Internet to broker what s/b a no-brainer to set up...and historic experience w/Tengo is not favorable...nor is it any better in the fall of 2012. I have been able to connect w/two laptops & an iPod Touch, but cannot connect w/iPad or Kindle. Guess I will have to phone Tengo to complain.
Delightful hostess at desk upon arrival. Sites are gravel and level. Reasonable grassy area w/picnic table. Excellent base for visiting Craters of the Moon National Park (18 miles away). Excellent wifi speed. Only complaint is NOT about the CG...instead, it is the town of Arco ID...which has nothing...and I mean nothing, to do or places to eat aside from places we might consider if we had not eaten in 5 days.
Functional campground with short sites; have to park tow vehicle cross-ways to site. Gravel throughout with many potholes in roadways. Dusty. Close to everything. Not a destination campground, but good for accessing Jackson, Jackson Hole, & Grand Teton NP. We would stay here again.
Level site of gravel; not a destination campground, but an excellent place to stay and do Yellowstone. We stayed 10 nites and used the campground as a base of operations...doing a portion of the park each day. We would stay here again. Excellent wifi and water pressure.
Tight, tight, tight; everything is tight! Narrow sites barely allowed slide outs; length of site barely accommodated 40' MH w/parked Saturn Vue. Took 3 tries to get wheels on cement curbing on one side, in order to be able to stoop down under the back slide to access hookups. Foliage needs trimming, and did I mention, there is hardly any room to walk along side the MH. I wanted to like this place. Asphalt roads and sites, between cement curbing, but the lack of convenience in navigating the jungle to access hookups, suggest we would try to find another CG next time. Please be sure to read other reviews about the lack of space.
A small, very clean, family owned CG w/lots of amenities for families including a wine-tasting on a newly built deck overlooking Blue Lake. Sites were gravel and level. Hookups all were convenient and good Wi-Fi, although slow at times. We would stay here again in our MH. However, multiple rail lines are in the area including one right next to park: with the blowing of the obligatory engineer's whistle for a grade-crossing which is the entrance to CG. Scares you intially, but after that it was fun to also watch trains go by: many during the day, only 1-2 at night.
We were fortunate to have a paved/level site; others in the CG did not have either of these two items. Also, we had convenient hookups, but others in the CG did not. Sewers for some were directly behind the site. While we would stay here again, one ought to be prepared for sites that are NOT level, paved, or with convenient hookups. Each site has it's own garbage can and sorting of recyclables is important at S-S-E RV Park. CG is very convenient to Park entrance in West Glacier, MT.
This campground is an oasis in the midst of mediocre campgrounds. Paved roads, level gravel sites - did not use levelers. Flowers abound and large grassy areas between sites. What a joy to be here. However, wifi is inconsistent and there was a water main break that produced low water pressure to the point the water was shut off for about 6 hours. Finally pressure was restored at 10 o'clock at nite. We would stay here again.
Typical KOA as far as CG goes. Adequate site, narrow roads, level sites, but Wi-Fi was flakey and slow. Sometimes it worked OK, but you cannot depend on it always connecting. You have to have a password, but need an additional password for each device. Some road noise, but nothing to worry about. We would camp here again as choices in Butte are limited.
CG was clean and site was level. Excellent access to I-90 and fuel. While site was long enough, there are 15-18 inches between slide outs on left sides of RVs. Sites are staggered w/one site facing one way as the next site over faces the opposite direction: so that the left sides of RVs face each other. Door sides of RVs face small green area w/picnic table. CG was functional, if you do not mind living on top of neighbors. We would try another CG next time.
Dirty and grungy is our description. Advertised Wi-Fi, if you could get connected, did not stay connected beyond 2 minutes. Called office, and received blah, blah, blah. Wi-Fi was never functional. I call this advertising "bait and switch." Roadways are wide for big rigs; CG sites are adequate for space, but are situated right next to others. Who if they used their picnic table, would sit nearly on top of your water/sewer hookups. If we had a choice, which is slim to none in Medora, we would never stay there again.
This CG is "apartment living for RV'rs." Gravel roads are narrow and sites are even tighter. Zero swing room. Sites are shaded and have bushes that block sitelines to folks next door. Site was level. Hope the people across the road leave b/4 we do so I can drive straight through to exit road, otherwise it's gonna be very tight to avoid hitting a big rock when entering road from site. We'd try to find another location next time.
Functional campground w/most amenities especially for an overnite. However, CG is NOT close to I-94 and most routes to CG force you to navigate downtown traffic. Site was fine, but roads from registration to site have tight turns. Roads were gravel and site was level. We would stay here again.
Price was w/o KOA membership. This was an amazingly clean and well kept CG; better than average KOA's we've been in. Employees upon arrival were friendly and helpful in providing directions to local places (Wal-Mart, Lowes, Target, and grocery stores). CG store had basic needs covered for food and camping accessories along w/fresh fudge cut to order and ice cream dipped to order. We would stay here again. Very quite location, although that 8 am train whistle could be a problem for some late sleepers.
Significant improvements (new blacktop) to main entrance road from last year made arrival much better. However, this KOA is still difficult to get to. KOA directions must be followed in detail but long distances between KOA signs cause one to wonder if one is on the right road. Directions do not have distances marked. I cannot imagine finding this KOA in the dark. Wi-Fi, while excellent, is limited; i.e., the KOA/local ISP contract limits the KOA and in turn, the KOA limits campers who get a login password upon checking-in, will be booted-off the connection if too much data is uploaded/downloaded. There is a warning note above the password login, but it lacks specificity as to just how much time/megs can be used. Over all, the campground is clean and owners are clearly upgrading, but sites are not that level and small. This was our third time at this KOA, but are now considering other options w/easier access and longer internet connectivity.
We've been here before and continue to admire this place. Great amenities w/wifi, pool, full hookups & 50 amp service (needed to run both a/c during hot summer months). Also great access to Rushmore/Crazy Horse/Custer SP/Lead/Deadwood/Sturgis/Devils Tower and of course, Rapid City. We will stay again.
Typical KOA w/easy access to I-90. Great supper/breakfasts available to all including locals, as long as everyone pays. We've stayed here before during trips both east and west. Diesel fuel and gas available at station at I-90 exit and CG is only 1/2 mile from interstate. Westerly winds and limited traffic going thru SD keep road noise to a minimum. We would stay here again.
Typical KOA w/easy access to either I-35 or I-90. CG is adjacent to I-90. Travel America fuel services are located at I-35, 7 miles west of CG via brand new cement hywy. Only negative was dust kicked up by moving vehicles. The positive during our stay was heavy rain - all night - so no dust in a.m.
Upon arrival, we thought this would be a fantastic place. We were disapppointed. Although the site was very large and was easy access for our 40' coach, the cable connection was filled w/snowy interference and the WiFi signal was non-existent. Worse, upon checking in, the first person was too busy to acknowledge that I was waiting. After a minute or so, she suggested a person at the other end of the counter would help me, and this second person was busy working on the computer. Ugh! Poor customer service. I went back to the office/store later to ask some questions and the same treatment was offered. I wondered if they understood customers were paying their salary. This is an Encore "resort" and my first experience w/Encore. Needless to say, we were not impressed. This place is huge and should be a wonderful RV/campground; employees and services are poor. Last but not least, we inquired about using the "work-out" facility and were told it would be an additional $20 for a membership. Ugh, again! We will avoid this place in the future.
While functional, this is NOT a destination campground. Street access is narrow and twisty. The campground itself, sits high on a hill; toads need to be disconnected at the bottom before going up. There is no cable or WiFi and the mine exhibition is closed until April 2008 for renovation. Electrical service is maxed out at 30 amps and all connections are at the rear of the back-in site, so make sure you have a long sewer hose; I needed to add 20 feet to my existing 20 foot hose as the sewer was about 30+ feet from my motorhome.
Another typical KOA with one exception; the sites were not particularly level. Even after leveling, our water in the gray tank would not completely empty, unless I blocked the wheels. The wonderful thing is that it is remotely located. When pulling out of the entrance, there is no view of traffic coming from either the left or right due to trees and hills. The WiFi was slow and there is no cable and given the hills of VA, the antenna didn't do any good.
Typical KOA and functional. What we saw was clean, but didn't use bathroom/showers. I-40 road noise was in the distance, but not obnoxious. While the predictability of KOA's is important, I would stay at the Deer Run RV Resort (also located in Crossville) the next time in order to avoid I-40 noise. We camped in a motorhome.
This is a very large place with nearly 200 sites of which 65 are available for folks on the move. The permanent residents are separated from the transient folks. There's a 25 acre lake with a beach, playgrounds as well as BBQ, and tennis courts. It is a gated CG which requires a pass available upon check-in and a $10 refundable deposit. It is 4 miles from I-40 at exit #322 (the exit # does not appear on the web site map); thus, it is very quiet and remote. Sites are very spacious and big rigs are easily accommodated. We would stay here again if in the area.
Host had an attitude and was surprised when I showed him a copy of our reservation confirmation. Although he was helpful in getting situated in the back-in site, the site was dirty/muddy. We will not return to this place.
Concrete everywhere; entrance, roadways, and pads. Person who answered phone is gruff, but personable when going face-to-face and when helping to back into a site. Many winter-Texans were evident and everything was spotless. WiFi is pay as you use it rather than free and ditto for cable TV. Size of sites was OK for our 40' motorhome, but had the impression of being stuffed into a campsite as most are small widths. Probably will not stay there again due to difficult access from major highways and confusing signage on roadways...typical for TX.
Adequate campground for our needs. Campsites are narrow, but most have fire rings anyway. Picnic tables are situated on landing pads. Great access from I-75 and yes, there is Wi-Fi, but the Wi-Fi lacks stability as I was continuously booted off the web at random intervals.
We stayed for 4 nights and toured SA during our time here. Amazingly quiet except for rude neighbors who stayed up talking until 2:00 a.m.; but they left after only 2 nights. Sites are close, but accommodating. Excellent access to all hookups except cable; but cable is available. Excellent public bus access to River Walk (downtown SA) as well as driving to same. Parking downtown is scarce, but we found it.
Typical KOA. Excellent access from interstate and diesel fuel. However, proximity to interstate permitted us to count trucks passing all night; thus, road noise was noticeable. Very clean and good access for large vehicles.
You can eat off the rest room floors. Unbelievably clean...and w/fresh flowers. My only disagreement is there are no sewers at the sites, altho a central dumping station is available on the way out of the CG.
