This place is HUGE with over 2000 camp sites. We paid the extra cash and got a premium site and were within 100 feet of the beach which was incredible. The campsite was well laid out and easy to navigate. The lazy river was cool, and 3 ft deep. The kids pool is 1 ft deep with a huge waterfall if they chose to run back and forth under it. The main pool was probably bigger than Olympic size and was 4 ft deep. No campfires are allowed. Our site was very spacious. We had a permanent picnic table and shelter over it which was nice so we didn't have to fool with the awning and the ocean winds. We will definitely stay here again, probably as our destination location and stay for a week. Rates are higher during peak season, and we got a military discount. The manager was exceptionally accommodating and let us do a late checkout without any qualms which was nice. This is definitely a good family oriented campground. Fishing is possible if you have your fishing license.
This campground was recommended to us. We were placed in a site that seemed to be all permanent setups, specifically next to one very poorly maintained travel trailer with an incredibly nice couple living in it. The campground itself is a little tight, but I'm 53 ft bumper to bumper and I made it work without too much work. The campground was quiet at night, and was a 7 minute quick walk to the beach! The island had many fun things to do, which made this campground a great choice. Driving through downtown Savannah to get to Tybee should be avoided at all costs if possible because the lanes are narrow, with huge trees very close to the passenger side of the vehicle, and oncoming 18 wheelers in the inner middle lanes with no dividers. We ate at a place very close to the campground called Cocos and it was the best seafood I've had in a long time. The site was level, the specific area we were was all gravel (but not the whole campground), I didn't use the pool, bathhouses, or any other facilities on the property. There was a dog park being built next door. The police station is 2 minute walk away from the campground. Many sites were shaded.Overall the campground was nice, and the location was perfect for us.
We made reservations 6 months ago, and on the day of our arrival (after driving 1200 miles to get there) were told if we weren't arrived by 5pm on check in day that we couldn't set up. After my wife talked to them, we were told we could park out front, with no hookups, overnight "as a favor"...but still paying the $90 overnight rate. Of course we'd have to move first thing in the morning. We spoke to them again, and seeing that we were staying here for 7 nights, they decided to make an exception and that the host would be there for us when we arrived. When we arrived (at 5:30pm) I was reminded at least a dozen times what a huge inconvenience it was to arrive late (yet his fifth wheel is at the entrance). I was then guided to site 10, out of 38 very tight sites. That's right, I drove across country 1200 miles on multiple highways and cities- but their "policy" states that I can not navigate to site 10 without an escort because obviously I can't count to ten. There are no family friendly facilities here, playground, etc which is okay. There is no bathhouse which is okay. Laundry facilities are coin op and nice. The is a tiki bar to sit at, but no drinks served, etc...it's a sitting spot. You can not swim from their dock, the water is 2 ft deep. You can't fish from their dock, signs prohibit it. The site was level. The whole place is gravel, no asphalt or concrete anywhere. The view is incredible, but the sites are close. All sites will hear road noise from Rt 1, which I imagine applies to all campgrounds in Marathon. Management staff gave our neighbor heck for driving their Harley's in the gravel to get them off their huge toy hauler which was the only way to get them off, then they lost their cable outlet because a Class A came in, and there was no provisions to have cable to both sites. I definitely will NOT stay here again purely due to their arrival policy - because the last thing I need after a long (stressful) drive is someone telling me that despite four college degrees and after navigating 1200 miles across country that I can't count in a logical fashion to find site ten, that I can't be one minute late to checkin, nor be told a dozen times what an inconvenience I am being as a customer staying for a full week. How incredibly disrespectful and demeaning.
The lady at the front desk was HORRIBLE and rude. I don't know what her issues are, but each visit to the main office was unfortunate and filled with bad information. The roads through the campground were adequate, but the sites themselves are pretty close to each other. The claim that "No AC is allowed" is not 100% true. You can opt to pay an additional amount each day to run your AC - but of course the lady at the desk repeatedly told us, "It's 8500 feet elevation, and you don't need it; plus 30Amp service won't support it!" But of course we know that's not true, and it was 110 degrees, so yes, the AC was needed for our family. Overall a decent place, but the lack of facilities and high cost, combined with horrible customer service make me give it a 7.
We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend as a family and had a BLAST!! Every RV seemed to have a handful of kids, and the park had a full weekend of activities you could participate in (hay rides, face painting, bouncy houses, etc.). This RV park has FULL SHADE sites, but the trees are kept trimmed well enough where they do not interfere with the RV itself. Our site was downright DARK with shade. Swimming pool area and playground area are nice. The roads may be a little tight for those not comfortable towing larger trailers, but I had no issues. We DEFINITELY plan to stay here again!
Great location half way between KC and Colorado Springs or Denver. Great owners who really take pride in the place; they host an ice cream social each night for $2/pp and do a pancake breakfast as well. The pool is a little small, and there is virtually NO shade so it is HOT HOT HOT in the summertime. The kids slide is a little rickety metal older model but is super tall, and there is (again) no shade over the playground either so be prepared. The KOA is very easy to find, well lit, and on the access road parallel to the highway, but I don't recall hearing highway noise. The sites are nearly perfect level so we didn't unhook and were fine; it's a perfect place for one night!
