There is wilderness camping and there is camping to have a place to stop and sleep while you are on the road. This is a campground with easy access to the highway to pull into after a long day on the road. The area is gravel but it is very clean. The bathrooms were very clean, sparkling. I used the laundry room and that too was very clean. The staff was friendly and the merchandise and store were organized and, have I used this word before? Clean. We relaxed in our camper using the WiFi to catch up on our email with family and friends. You want a wilderness camping experience? Then drive the extra miles to find it. You just want a clean friendly place to spend the night when you are on the road? Then this KOA is it.
We meant to go to Horse Thief Lake Campground and made the mistake of coming to this campground because we followed the road signs. Do not make the same mistake. It was not a positive experience. Our fire pit was on the side of a slope which made sitting by the fire difficult if not impossible. The pit had cigar butts in it so we passed on the fire. The sites were littered with cigarette butts and candy wrappers. The bathroom was very dirty. When taking a shower, the campers at the sinks can see in because the gaps between the door and panels is wide. But the gaps were so filled with dust and dirt maybe they could not see in. The toilets are old and outdated with signs instructing you to hold the handle down to get an adequate flush. Not everyone followed these instructions as evident when you entered a stall. The Wi-Fi was only available if you sat on the front porch of the check in office. The sites were very close together and unpleasant. We camp 45 days a year and this was one of the worse campgrounds we have stayed in.
