Very friendly and helpful staff. A lot of upgrade going on as seen in the replacement of the fences around the campground and campsites. The campsites are level but dusty. The Lizzie Mae store is an unique store that contains unbelievable variety of products to satisfy any shopper. Bathrooms and laundry room are very clean and at $1 per load is the most economical of all the campgrounds during our 52-day trip. Be sure to get the free limo ride to check out the good food at The Big Texan. We will definitely camp here again.

The roads leading to the campsites are in dire need of repaving and showed severe sign of long term erosion. Consequently, the roads are bumpy and very dusty. Maintenance around the campsites is lacking as grass needed mowing. Be sure to have a long water hose as ours barely reached the water hook-up. WiFi connection is excellent. We will not camp here again.

Check-in staff is very friendly. Coffee and muffins are offered in the office in the morning. The campsites at this campground are long and narrow with a picnic table on a concrete pad which is very nice and kept dirt from being tracked into the rig. It's definitely big rig friendly with the 100 ft pull-through. Laundry room is large with 8 washers and 5 dryers at $1.50 per load. Bathrooms and showers are old but kept very clean. We will definitely camp here again.

The rate reflects a Good Sam discount. The site we were assigned was situated oddly and took some maneuvering to get in there. The site was level but dusty. Wi-Fi connection was excellent. The women's toilet do not have doors and I chose not to use it because of my desire for privacy.

Nightly rate reflects Passport America discount. This RV park does not accept credit cards. The place is run down and I would not use their shower or bathroom. I did not find their claim on the web site regarding their laundry as "probably one of the cleanest you will ever use," to be accurate. I had to clean the machine three times before putting my laundry in there. The shock was finding dirt in the dryer that required extensive cleaning before putting my stuff in there. We will not be returning here again.

A great campground with beautifully landscaped leveled sites. Very clean campground as the sites are cemented with picnic table on grass. Very friendly and helpful staff. Wi-Fi is the best of all the campground we've been to. Did not rate it a 10 is because two out of the four washers were out of order during our visit.

We made a reservation but upon checking in was told they don't take reservations as they are strictly first come first serve. Luckily there was one space available. This campground has mostly long term campers but it's well maintained. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Laundry room is spacious with TV and rocking chair provided while waiting for the laundry. Washing machine takes $1.50 per load while the dryer is 50 cents for 10 minute drying time. We won't stay here again due to not taking reservations.

This campground is ideally located within a short driving distance to all sorts of family entertainment and theaters. It's located about 7 miles from the entrance to the Great Smoky NP which was nice as visiting the NP was the main purpose of our trip. The sites are small but well maintained. Laundry room is nice with front loading washing machines at $1.50 a load and $1.25 to dry. We will stay here again.

This campground is hard to get in and out. We stayed here for 3 nights at site#150. During our entire stay we had to struggle with water and mud puddles. This site is at the lowest point of the campground and the rain pools right around our rig. There is no laundry facility available on site. I was informed upon check in that laundry can be done across the main road at the truck stop. WiFi connection was decent. We will not camp here again.

We used Passport America discount for our 5-day stay here. This is a great campground with very friendly owners and very nicely maintained grounds. The catch-and-release fishing pond is a big hit with the kids. Wi-Fi connection is good. The only con about this campground is no laundry facility, which is prohibited by the county ordinance. We will definitely camp here again.

A very nicely maintained campground. If you need Wi-Fi make sure to speak up when checking in. It seems only certain part of the campground gets good Wi-Fi reception. Connection is slow but sufficient enough to check email and read news online. We stayed here overnight and will come back again if we are ever this way.

We chose this campground because of its location within the downtown entertainment district. We were very happy with its location as the show we wanted to see was within walking distance. The laundry room is huge with 7 washers and 8 dryers at $1.25 per load. The bathrooms and showers are well maintained and very clean. We stayed here 5 days and our awning was able to stay out the entire time. The reason for not rating this campground a 10 is because of the narrow roads entering and exiting the campground.

We camped here because of the Passport America discount. The campground has the worst bathroom, shower, and laundry room of any I've been to. Bathroom has not been cleaned and water leak around the toilet. Grass has not been mowed and caused some of the campsites to be inaccessible. We will not camp here again and hope we don't come across another one like this.

We stay here overnight using a Passport America discount. Bathroom, shower, and the laundry room are old but very clean. The name is misleading as Wi-Fi signal is very weak. Talked to the management and was told to come closer to the office to get a connection. After trying for hours was finally connected to the Wi-Fi but the speed is so slow, 1 Mbps, my attempts to check email kept on timing out. We will not stay here again.

Very well maintained campsites with deck and picnic table at each campsite. Very friendly staff and immaculately maintained bathroom, shower and the laundry room. Very reasonable to do laundry at $1.25 to wash and $1 to dry. Additional cost of $3.50 per day is charged for cable hook-up. Stream current is too fast to do any fishing but the sound is very soothing. Entry to and exit from the property was guided by the staff because of the extremely narrow road and the campsites.

Dusty campsites that can be reached on dusty gravel roads. Grass has not been mowed for a couple of weeks. Registration staff did not provide much information except number of the assigned campsite and directions to get there. For the nightly rate charged we expected more amenities than the free Wi-Fi, which was slow. We found activities offered on the ranch by reading the posters. I highly recommend riding the train and buy the feed to feed the bison. That was a lot of fun. We will come back again for the activities but not for the campsites.

The campsites and the grounds are very well maintained. This RV camp is part of the Hilton Hotel and offers quite a bit of amenities, i.e. pool, fitness center, etc. We stayed here for overnight and feel the price is quite high as we were not able to take advantage of the amenities. The free wi-fi available is very slow and we gave up after repeated trying. If the wi-fi is any indication of the quality of amenities offered I know we won't be coming back.

A dusty campground with fairly leveled camp sites. Additional charge is assessed for cable hookup. We were initially assigned a space too short for our 5th wheel which was remedied very quickly. Easy get in and out of the campground off the freeway. We camped here overnight and will come here again next time we travel this way.

This is an old campground behind a gas station. Staff is very friendly. The bathroom is old and in need of repair but fairly clean. Laundry room has two washers @ $1.25 a load while the two dryers accepts $1 per load. It's been a while since I've seen such reasonable price to do laundry at any of the RV parks we've visited. The trash dumpster is quite a distance from the campsites. We consider this is fair accommodation for an overnight stay.

Make sure not to arrive prior to the 1 pm check in time. It's firmly enforced. My husband was not allow to use the bathroom because we arrived around 12:30 pm and that's during the designated bathroom cleaning time. Wi-Fi is available at $4 a day and the check-in clerk indicated due to speed it's only good for checking email. We forgo the Wi-Fi and relied on our AT&T smartphone which had a good reception. We will not return to this campground due to their inability to accommodate customer's needs.

Very friendly and helpful staff checked us in. The bathroom and the showers are very clean. We paid extra for a concrete pull through site which turned out to be very narrow and took a few tries to get situated on the pad. Next time we will settle for the gravel sites. We camped here overnight and will definitely come back.

Nightly rate reflects group discount. Very nice RV sites are back-ins only. Best equipped and spacious fitness center of any RV resort we've visited. Mark's Grill, the on-site cafe, serves great food and drinks by very friendly staff. Be sure to have a water regulator handy to handle the 110 PSI water pressure. The only negative thing is the extra hose needed to reach the sewer hook up that's higher than the ground and takes some effort to drain.

Rate reflects Passport America discount. Pull through site are in lot #3. Lot 1 and 2 seemed to be used for storage. The pull through site we were assigned was fairly level. Water, electricity, and sewer hookups were all functional. Laundry room had trash all over the floor and the bathroom looked like it hadn't been cleaned for quite sometime. We won't be coming back to this one.

Great campground with great amenities. Level and long pull-thru campsites. Super fast WiFi connections. We will definitely come back here to stay longer when the weather is not so hot.

We camped here with our Good Sam chapter and enjoyed group rate discount with more than 10 rigs. Very well maintained and spacious RV pull-through campsites. We had a mountain view with our rig's door open instead of someone else's rig. Fishing is great and fish is delicious. The drive from the freeway to the campsite is dusty and twice as long as the posted distance. Bring plenty of insect repellent as the mosquitoes are vicious. This is a quiet and very peaceful campground and we always enjoy ourselves tremendously. We've camped here twice already and will come back here every chance we get.

Newly upgraded WiFi connection works great. However, that does not compensate for the constant loss of water pressure due to problem with the water pump. Whenever water pressure is restored the water is highly rustic and stains the toilet. When water is available the pressure is so low that we were not able to effectively clean out the black tank washer. The current electrical system is not able to handle the demand as our electric power safety monitor kept on shutting down due to low voltage. We were force to by-pass the safety monitor to get electricity. We camped here with our friends and neither one of us will return to this campground.

On-site manager was very friendly. We were told our nightly rate did not reflect the rate increase of $5 per night because we made the reservation before the rate hike. Nightly rate is considered high for a campsite that is not leveled and no WiFi available. We will not return to this campground.

The nightly rate was very reasonable with the Passport America discount. Campground is beautifully landscaped with spacious pull-through sites to accommodate large rigs. Self check-in has very clear step-by-step instruction. We will definitely return when the opportunity arises in the future.

The nightly Passport America discount rate is very reasonable. The resort is beautifully landscaped with most of the park catering to residents living in permanent park models. However, this campground only has back-in RV sites. RV sites are small and difficult to back in. Definitely not big rig friendly. We will not be coming back here.

Rancheria RV Park campground is surrounded by trees. A very scenic campground but somewhat isolated. Because of its location there is no cell phone reception and the two pay phone booths onsite do not accept coin for making long distance calls. Little restaurant onsite serves very good food and the dessert pies are homemade. WiFi is free for two hours a day and very, very slow.

The staff was unfriendly and the sites are very small. Due to the small site we were really concerned about our RV flipping over when we leave as the tires were on the ledge of the slope. We made it with no room to spare. It was a very, very close call. Bathroom facilities were not clean and toilet seats were loose. This KOA is not at the quality level we've come to expect of a KOA campground. The rate is higher than other KOAs and the level is much, much lower than other KOAs. This campground does not warrant a repeat visit nor a first visit. Stay away if you can.

Although the campground offers quite a bit of amenities, I feel the nightly rate is on the high side. All sites are leveled and cemented. WiFi is available but slow. There are no trees to provide shade and the AC had difficulty keeping the temperature down in the rig during the hot afternoon sun. If you enjoy wine, this is the place to be. You can also get some great fresh produce and fruits during the Farmers Market season.

This KOA campground far exceeded our expectation of what a KOA campground should be. The facility is old but very clean and everything is kept in excellent condition. Staff is very friendly and will do whatever they can to ensure your stay is as pleasant as possible. We enjoyed the campground and the staff so much that we extended our stay by an additional day. We will plan our future trips to try to stay at this campground if at all possible.
