The sites here are large with a fair amount of grass. The power is strong and steady, Wi-Fi good most of the time, our Verizon Internet slow, but good. The park is neat. Almost all sites are long-term people. Negatives are that the restrooms were dirty, 2 showers are only separated from each other with a curtain. We were right next to the highway and so it was noisy whenever a vehicle went by. Thankfully, it wasn't too busy. Manager doesn't seem to care much. Eleven dollar rate is Passport America.

This is a clean, well-run park. Our site was level and easy to get into. The staff are all friendly and are welcoming to their guests. The owner understands full-timers and their needs. The Wi-Fi was good most of the time and our Verizon broadband worked very well. Campers in the park were mostly long-term people who worked in the area. They were quiet. The only negatives were noise from the nearby highway and the fact there was only one individual restroom and shower for men, one for women. The the floor was not clean. We would definitely stay here again.

A very attractive park with good electrical hookups. Site was long and level, though narrow. Wi-Fi didn't work Sunday afternoon, but it did on Monday morning. It is very busy, with lots of overnight campers off I-70. Reservations would be necessary on weekends. Restrooms weren't very clean.

This is a very nice Corps campground. We paid the senior half-price rate. They did have full hook-up and pull-through sites, but the back-in 50-amp sites are much larger and more private. We enjoyed the bike trails, as well. Only negative--to us--was that our site didn't have satellite TV access. Too many trees. Wi-Fi was good on Friday, weaker over the weekend. Verizon broadband worked.

We enjoyed our stay here. The WiFi is excellent, at least during the week. It was slow when the park was full. Sites are long, utilities work well. The owners and workcampers are friendly. The campground is quiet and has a nice walking trail, as well as fishing and other activities. Our site was not level side to side, but that was easily dealt with. Only negatives are narrow sites and side by side hookups for pull-through sites.

Our site was level, electricity good, very quiet campground. We enjoyed our stay. That said, no TV because of the trees, Verizon broadband only 1 or 2 bars. They have WiFi but it is Tengo, meaning you have to pay. The restrooms were very dirty: looked like they hadn't been cleaned in days. That improved on Friday: once a week cleaning. Campground needs some TLC. We would stay here again.

This is a great park. Sites are large and well spaced, good electric and water. Only negative is no sewer, but there is a dump station. Staff and volunteers are friendly. The old ruins are interesting. Nearby town of Winslow is also interesting. We had great Verizon cell and broadband signal. We would stay here again. Very easy access from I-40, but no highway noise.

This is a clean, well-run campground. And its location is everything. If it weren't in a National Park, it would get a lower rating because some sites aren't level and they are all narrow. But it is a great place to stay while visiting the Grand Canyon. The shuttle buses are convenient and the Zanterra Market is a very complete, though expensive, grocery store just down the road. This entire park is beautiful and very well run. We would definitely stay here again.

We really enjoyed our stay at this park. The 50-amp electric was good, the Wi-Fi was strong most of the time, and the staff goes out of their way to be friendly and helpful. For rail buffs, this is an excellent place to stop. We could see lots of freight traffic, as well as watching the Grand Canyon Railroad train come and go each day and use the wye several times a day. We even saw them tuning up the steam engine. The park provides and shuttle to and from the train. We would definitely stay here again. Daily rate reflects 10% AAA discount.

This is a very good park in a great location. Our site was wide and level and private. The electric was good. We didn't try to use their Wi-Fi, but we had a good Verizon air card data signal and a good voice signal. We enjoyed the hiking trails into the Granite Dells and to Watson Lake. Only complaint was the dirt and dust. Some gravel would be nice. We would stay here again.

This is an excellent park to visit in this part of Arizona. The sites are large and immaculate, the facilities exceptionately clean, the staff friendly and helpful. We were in a site far enough from the highway to be very quiet and the park itself is quiet. And very dark at night; good to see the stars and for sleeping. We will definitely stay here again if we are in the area.

This campground has a lot going for it: long, level sites, spotless restrooms, friendly staff, Wi-Fi. However, it is a KOA and outrageously expensive. And, if it was full, the side-by-side hookups would mean sharing our picnic table with another rig.

We loved this park: large, level sites, wide green lawn between RVs, a park-like hill covered by trees, good Wi-Fi. The highway is close by, but wasn't a problem. Our only complaint was with the woman who checked us in. She gave us a code for the back door of the building for restrooms and showers, but didn't tell us where it was. Then she circled a restroom building in the middle of the RV park. When we went looking for it, we discovered it had been moved that day and wasn't hooked up yet.

We enjoyed our stay here. Our site was level, electric and wifi worked fine. The restrooms are clean and the park wasn't really crowded. We enjoyed the town of Ellensburg. We usually avoid KOA because of the cost and all the children. There were lots of families and children about on Saturday; Sunday was much quieter. A very well-run park.

The office staff was very helpful. The electric and WiFi both were great. The sites are wide and there are lots of shade trees. The location, next to the Boise River greenway is great. New owners have eliminated side-by-side sites by letting you park your toad or tow vehicle in the other side. So there is plenty of room. However, park needs grounds care and work on the dirt/gravel roads and RV sites. It has potential to be a much higher-rated park if these things are done.

Very clean, well-run park. Attractive sites with grass out your front door. Restrooms are clean, but old. Pretty good Wi-Fi. Strong electric. We got good Dish TV, good Verizon MiFi, good Sprint phone. We usually don't go to KOAs, but we liked this park.

This is a beautiful park, very well run, neat, clean. Staff is full of information. Sites are all grass and it is lush and green. Washing rig is not allowed. They referred us to Duck In Car Wash across the street. We believe the clearance wasn't as high as indicated, and we damaged our A/C.

OK for an overnight stay. Just a mud/gravel parking lot. Sites are narrow but electric, water, sewer were good. Wi-Fi worked in our RV, though we were told we had to go to laundry room to use it. Restrooms were OK, not spotless. Toilets are in private rooms, but only one for women, one for women. Convenient stop on way to or from Haines.

This is basically a parking lot with medium-sized lots that are very long. We had 50 amp electric, excellent wi-fi, very clean restrooms, friendly, helpful staff. And the views on all side (when you look up) are stunning. We saw bald eagles from the park, and one day, a bear in the park. We would stay here again.

This is a great campground with large, treed sites all along Tolsona Creek. Electricity is good. We had good Wi-Fi at our site. We have a 36 foot long RV and there are several sites we would have fit in. The roads were fine for us. This is like a good state park with water and electric. Restrooms are old and basic but spotlessly clean. We will return.

We were in this park during dip netting season and the stink was awful. Fish cleaning stations had fish guts hanging out of buckets, pools of bloody water. Trash was overflowing. Sites are sand and dirt. Staff is friendly, park very busy. Glad we were only there for 2 days.

I probably would have rated this campground higher, except the management doesn't seem to care. Check-in wasn't too pleasant because manager seemed to be bothered we were here. Bathrooms were fairy clean, though wastebaskets were overflowing. Laundry only had 2 of 3 washers working; change machine wasn't working. Sites are large, Wi-Fi was pretty good, Verizon phone signal was excellent. We stayed here 8 years ago and liked it better then.

We had an absolutely beautiful site with great view of Cook Inlet and volcanoes across the way. Hookups worked well, Wi-Fi reliable most of the time. Restrooms and showers are clean, but only one toilet for park where some sites don't have sewer is maybe not enough. Owners are very friendly and helpful. We were given freshly smoked salmon and a meal of flounder. Opportunities for social gatherings, which we choose not to take part in. They didn't push us. We would stay here again.

Park is convenient to town of Palmer, easy to find and park in. Sites are grassy and relatively level. Wifi was OK unless many campers were trying to use it. Nice to have full hookups. Laundry was good.

We had a great site and the park is right in town. We could walk to everything and hear and watch the trains. Good electric and water. Excellent Wi-Fi. But only 3 restrooms for whole park. Since they were private rooms and included the shower, the wait could be quite long. Showers leaked water onto floor so dirt on shoes made a mess.

Restrooms were spotless, but signs asking we take off our shoes to enter the building were out of line. Electric and water good. No sewer and dump station could only be accessed by leaving park and coming back in. Sites are short and water line on ground surface made it difficult to position RV. Hard to park tow vehicle. Wifi very slow.

After being assigned a site with low overhanging trees, we were given a nice pull-through with grass out front. There was a picnic table nearby for our use. Restrooms were clean. Wi-Fi was weak and spotty. Over July 4 the park was very full. Woman who checked us in didn't know anything about the sites except the length and when they were available. That is why she put us in an unworkable site to begin with. Busy park but well maintained.

This is a good park. We had a very long pull-through with a grassy front yard. Bird feeders in the trees. Very good Wi-Fi. Restrooms are very clean. Owner is friendly. We found plenty of things to fill one day in the area.

The campground is well maintained, facilities and hookups are good. I had good Verizon voice and data signals. They offer 1 hour free Tengo Wi-Fi Internet for each day you stay. It was very good. Sites are long, but narrow. You must position just right to open slides. Roads are narrow, so it takes work to turn into the sites with a large trailer. Good pine trees give the site a "camping" feel, not just a parking lot. Woman who checked us in really didn't pay attention to what we had to say. We would stay here again.

We first stayed here 8 years ago and it was very acceptable. This time, the bathrooms were dirty, the roads and RV sites were all dirt and very muddy. There was a pile of gravel at the back that would have been good on the roads. At check-in, the clerk in the gas station-convenience store-RV park office was totally uninterested in us or our business. They did have solid electric and Wi-Fi in the store.

This is another Yukon parking lot. However, it is truly a full-service park. The electricity is good, the Wi-Fi is strong, the cable TV is fair. They offer gas and diesel, propane, oil change area, vehicle power wash, and a store with lots of RV parts. They sell tickets to the train out of Skagway and other activities. We would stay here again.

We were the second unit to check in, and we had the best site in the park with a great view of the lake. Other sites were narrow with side-by-side hookups. Restrooms were only fairly clean. Women's had a code. Door on the men's didn't even close. The campground has only water, sewer and a dump station.

Typical Yukon campground, a large parking lot with narrow sites. Electricity was good, water pressure OK, Wi-Fi slow but reliable. They have a decent grocery store and reasonably priced fuel. The restrooms were very clean. From what we saw, the best campground in town.

This is a wonderful provincial park. The sites are large, private, beautiful. The campground is very clean. They rake each site between campers. The vault toilets were very clean. The staff was friendly. And we really enjoyed the hot springs. We knew the campground had no hookups, so I rate it based on what it does have. We would definitely come back here again.

We stayed here 8 years ago and this place was terrible. Glad we gave it another try. It is much improved. The sites are long, though narrow. Hookups, other than TV, worked well. Wi-Fi was strong at our site. Staff was friendly and worked hard. Laundry was fairly clean and reasonably priced. Bathrooms were dirty, however. Previous reviewer is too harsh, expects city amenities in the boonies. We would stay here again. First night there was a loud party. Owner came and asked if we had been bothered. Said yes. The folks were kicked out of there by early afternoon. We were glad to see that.

We probably had the best site in the park: #1. No one out our front door. Site was fairly level unless you pulled way forward. Park is not well-maintained. Restrooms were OK, not great. Called ahead for a reservation, told we would be in Site 46. Got here and there was no record of that. He did find a spot. Very busy park but staff not very organized, or knowledgeable.

This is a very good park. Sites are large and grassy, hookups are good. The Wi-Fi worked very well. Restrooms were spotless. Hosts are very nice. I enjoyed the trail through the woods. Hwy 97 is fairly busy in the evening, but not a problem. Otherwise the park is very quiet.

In contrast to recent reviews, we find this park is very good, especially for the price we paid (50% off Escapees or Passport America). Good electric, good wi-fi, good Sprint and Verizon signals, and a field full of buffalo nearby. Convenient for an overnight stay. Might be good with children, as well. Highway is loud, but easy access compensates for that. Site was fairly level, as good as most places we stop.

This is a good park and we have stayed here before. Much busier this time due to oil and gas drilling in the area. This is an old KOA. New owners are updating the aging facilities. Sites are rather small, but adequate for our one-night stop. Didn't use the Wi-Fi. A sign in the office said it might be slow at busy times and using individual broadband card might be better. We would stay here again.

Sites are large, well laid-out, especially for a commercial campground. This is an old KOA park, but well-maintained and facilities were very clean. Managers were very friendly. The Wi-Fi was slow. So we used our Verizon broadband, which worked well. We would stay here again.

An excellent state park with very large, well laid-out sites. Not a very busy mid-week when we were there. It was hot, but the electric was strong and reliable.

We spent a week at this park and enjoyed it very much. Our site was huge and very private. Electric power was good and we had good Sprint cell service and Verizon internet. The park is very well maintained, the laundry was clean and had good equipment, the staff was friendly, helpful. The WiFi works well unless you have Windows Vista or Windows 7. Don't know why that is. There is lots to do in the Silver City area. We would definitely stay here again.

This our second stay at this park. The electricity is good and the staff is friendly. The book exchange is great. We will not return again, however. The sites are narrow and crowded and the laundry is dirty and not well maintained. One washer was unplugged, one so dirty I wouldn't use it. One dryer has a sign that says, "High heat, only." I found gum in one dryer. OK for overnight, not for several nights while visiting area attractions.

Great large sites, wonderful views of the Catalina Mountains. This state park has good electricity and we had a good Sprint cell signal and good Verizon broadband signal. The restrooms were very clean and the campground is well maintained. Only down side, the staff and volunteers aren't really friendly.

We enjoyed our week-long stay in this quiet, clean RV park. We had a large, fairly level site, excellent electric, very good WiFi.

We ended up not staying in this park. We have a 35-foot 5th wheel. Park is not clearly marked, showing which camping loops have electricity, which have water. After driving through 2 loops, one with no hookups, one with electric only, and seeing sites that were small and not level, rubbing trees on narrow roads with tight turns, we left the park and drove on to Gallup. That is only the second time we have done that in 13 years of camping.

This was our first stay in a New Mexico State Park. It was great. The site was level, good electricity, large and private. Park has only 23 electric sites and only half have water.

This state park has large, level sites, private, good electricity. Wi-Fi is good. Restrooms were spotless and park is clean. Lots of space to bike, walk, etc. We always enjoy staying here.

We had a great camp site at this park, very private, large, relatively level. The park didn't receive a 10 rating because the staff is not friendly and the Wi-Fi was nearly impossible to get on. We were told there were problems, to try early morning or in the evening. Even that didn't work. Also, campground is near two major roads and there is constant low-level noise. Park was full on weekends, space available weekdays in September without reservations. Lots of space to bike, walk, etc. Rate reflects senior pass (Aspen Leaf) rate.

This park has excellent WiFi and good water pressure. The laundry is clean and machines work well. The cost is reasonable. We did have 50 amp electric, but the electricity was not very good. Running any 2 appliances: a/c, coffee pot, heat pump, put the electricity gauge into the red. Don't know if the problem is the park or the utility company, but we didn't like the risk of damage to our appliances. This issue accounts for the rating of 8. Staff was friendly and the park was clean and convenient.

The sites are somewhat narrow, but you can put out your awning and your slides and so can your neighbor. There is grass, not just pavement. Electric hookup is strong, we have good broadband and good cell phone. This is a destination park with lots to do, though that isn't why we were here. Rate reflects 50% Escapees discount for one day. Second day was $32.

We had a water-electric site, no sewer. Sites are tight to back into. Staff in office is cold, not very friendly.

But a nice touch. We would not stay here again.

Sites are narrow: our picnic table leaned to the side because it was falling off our "terraced" site. Hookups were good, restrooms very clean. No grass, only asphalt. WiFi worked, but was slow. Check-in staff was friendly and efficient. They brag about the terraced sites, giving each unit a view. Our view was right into the neighbor's living room. I think it is spin to explain the hills in the campground. We would try another park next time.

We loved this park: clean, quiet, huge sites, good electric, clean restrooms. Our Verizon broadband worked well and we had Sprint cell phone. The staff is nice. It is strange to not have water hook-up at a Corps park. First-come, first-serve sites were plentiful on Tuesday. By Thursday late afternoon they were gone. Don't expect to find any for the weekend. We would definitely stay here again. If we had the time, we would have stayed here 2 weeks.

This is a quiet, friendly park. Good for an overnight stay and enjoyed by lots of seasonal campers. We asked for 50-amp service. The owner asked why? When I explained we had 2 a/c, he said he would be happy to charge me $4 for 50-amp, but the temperature was only in the 60s and low 70s. So we chose 30-amp pull through over 50-amp back-in. We had excellent Sprint cell phone service and the campground free Wi-Fi was strong. Restrooms are spotless. Only reason I didn't rate this as a 10 was that pull-through sites are narrow and have side-by-side hookups, which we hate. Rate reflects Escapee discount. We would camp here again.

We were in the pet section, in a back-in site. The roads are narrow and sites at 90 degree angle from road. Tough to park. We had 50-amp electric, but voltage was low and so we could not use both air conditioners. Restrooms were not clean. Camp hosts were friendly and did a good job of keeping camp sites clean. No enforcement of rules. Some campers had very junky sites. Park has lots of trails for walking, biking.

We liked this campground. The $15 rate was for one night on Passport America. Second night cost $30. Owners are doing lots of improvements. There are seasonal sites along the harbor.

Clean and well-run campground. Lots of seasonal sites and families. Staff was friendly. Restrooms were old and basic, but very clean. Park has side-by-side hookups, but since it wasn't full, every other site in that area was empty. Sites would be narrow and crowded when park is full.

This is a rustic park, but with full hook-ups, great electric, very clean but old and small restrooms. The pool looked very nice, the sites are large and afforded privacy due to the spacing. Rate reflects off-season rates--on Father's Day Weekend, no less. It was like a Forest Service campground with hookups. We would definitely come here again.

If you want to feel like you are camping in a national forest campground, but with full hookups, this is the place. I would have given it a 10, except the dirt sites might not be what some people like and could be a problem if it rained a lot. Sites aren't perfectly level, but that is easy to compensate for. We loved the large sites, the forest, the extra clean restrooms. The pool looks nice. We had strong broadband internet and good cell phone service. The 50-amp electricity was strong. The campground is quiet. We would definitely stay here again.

Very good hookups, strong electric, clean restrooms. Family friendly park. But the biggest drawback was side-by-side hookups. We don't enjoy sharing our front yard with someone else. It is very uncomfortable. The park was very busy on a Friday night. Kids and families seemed to be having a good time. But if you are seniors with an empty nest, that isn't what you are looking for. Prohibition of any alcohol is strange for a commercial park. No broadband internet, almost no cell-phone signal. Difficult entrance road.

Solid electric, friendly staff, beautiful grounds. This was a good overnight stay. The 50-amp sites are rather tight, but easy to park in. Restrooms were very clean, but old. It was nice to see lots of green grass.

While there is still construction going on and a number of long-term residents, this park has very long sites that are big rig friendly, excellent 50 amp electric. We have a good Verizon broadband signal. The restrooms are old but very clean and complete. There is lots to do in the area. I-95 is very close and noise is a real issue when you are outside. Office staff is efficient but not friendly. Rate is with AAA discount.

We stayed here for the Memorial Day Weekend and the rate is Passport America. The electric hookup was excellent, our site was very long, the grass green. Restrooms were old and inadequate, but clean. The pool was being repaired. Roads are poor and, after a rain and from drainage from the pool, they were muddy. The park was quiet, even on the holiday weekend and we enjoyed our stay. We had a good Verizon broadband signal and Sprint phone signal.

This campground has large, level sites, excellent 50-amp electric, very clean restrooms. Our Verizon broadband card worked well and we had good satellite TV hookup. It's convenient to the beach, and other local sights. Just don't go over Memorial Day weekend (we left Friday morning), due to a motorcycle rally. Campground was quiet, but the road in front and nearby motel very noisy. We would stay here again.

This is a great park with huge sites, reliable 50 amp electric. The restrooms were fairly clean, but old and not always well stocked. Laundry was inexpensive. The only problem was narrow roads. They were put in around the trees and in some places very difficult to navigate with a large rig.

This is a well-run, clean campground. Sites are fairly level, sand. The roads are narrow, paved. 50-amp electric was good. The park is a tropical jungle, so don't even think of satellite TV. Even local TV from the antenna was iffy. Camp hosts don't interact with campers but office staff is very friendly and helpful. Restrooms are old, but clean and checked frequently. Our Verizon broadband worked well. We enjoyed the easy access to the beach and biking in the park.

We had a good stay at this park. Everything was great. I did give only a qualified yes to clean showers. The new showers had lots of bugs and they were only cleaned once in the six days we were here. The old showers were much better. They provide one washer and dryer. The grounds are kept immaculate and the campground is quiet. Most days our Verizon broadband worked well and Sprint cell service was good. They provided us lots of information on dealing with ants, as referred to in an early review. But we never saw even a single one. We would stay here again.

We enjoyed our stay and would come again. The sites were large, level, easy to hook up. Electricity was excellent: we used both air conditioners often. Good Sprint cell service, slow Verizon broadband. TV antenna reception was terrible and we couldn't get satellite TV through the trees. Restrooms were fairly clean. Staff was very friendly. There were lots of long-term residents.

Although the "old" campground is laid out like many commercial parks (with side-by-side hookups), the sites are easy to park in with excellent electricity. The restrooms were cleaned, but not really clean. Once a day over a busy weekend with intermittent rain really doesn't do it. One shower area had two stalls, no hook for gear and no shelves, and you shared the dressing area with the other stall. The other old shower facility had a bench and 2 hooks. They have a new facility in the other campground area and the stalls are much nicer, but no bench or shelf. What are you supposed to do with your clothes? Our Verizon broadband card worked fine and the park had good Wi-Fi. The park is beautiful with lots of open space and access to Lake Ponchantrain. We would definitely stay here again.

If you can get parked in your site and if you have long enough electric cords and water hose, this is a pretty good park. We enjoyed our stay, but trees close to the roadway made backing in difficult. We had to use 2 full hoses to reach the water hook-up. The restrooms were clean and the park grounds were beautiful.

Large, fairly level sites at this beautiful, quiet park with lots of open space. Restrooms and showers were very clean. We had marginal Sprint cell phone signal, but very good Verizon broadband. Staff was friendly and helpful. We would return to this park.

For a commercial campground, this one is very good. The staff is friendly, the sites are level and the hookups good. We had excellent electric, even running 2 air conditioners. Site was wide enough to allow us to open our awning, if there had not been wind. Had good Verizon broadband and good Sprint cell phone signal.

This a great park with wonderful historic sites, as well as beautiful sites. We were in #17 and it was huge, private and beautiful. Lots of birds to listen to. The staff was very friendly. The restrooms were clean. We had very good Verizon broadband signal and good Sprint cell phone. Our only complaint was the electric was not reliable. On Friday night we could barely run 1 air conditioner, on a 50-amp site. We would definitely return to this park.

Good for an overnight stay. Has large, long, wide sites. Level, easy to use without disconnecting from the truck. Good electric. Laundry was inexpensive. Restrooms were old but very clean. No Wi-Fi at our site. No ambiance, but Passport America rate of $10 plus $2 for 50 amp met our needs.

Although we usually avoid KOA parks, this is a great place to stay. Everything about the park is immaculate and the staff is so helpful. The sites are narrow--we could put out the slides but couldn't fully extend the awning. No picnic tables. But we had an excellent Verizon broadband signal and they offered one day free Wi-Fi from Tengo. We had a pretty good Sprint cell phone signal. We would definitely come here again.

This park is old and the sites are narrow. However, the 50-amp electric was very reliable and the restrooms were spotless. Park includes a large fitness center, a restaurant, and a great book exchange. They were doing work on the water system, but warned us ahead of time so we could fill our fresh water tank. The Wi-Fi was free and generally reliable. We would stay here again if we wanted to visit attractions in the area such as Chiricahua National Monument. Rating is based on attractiveness of the site.

We really enjoyed this state park. Site was large and several would easily accept our 36' 5th wheel. We stayed in the electric hook-up section. It was 30 amp and not very strong. We had to use our autofomer (sp?) to have strong enough power to use the microwave or air conditioner, even with both the refrigerator and water heater using propane. We stayed from Tuesday to Sunday. The two weekend nights the non-electric sites were full. That section has small sites. A great place for birders.

We enjoyed our stay at this state park. The sites were large, easy to park in. Great views, easy access to many attractions--Sedona, Jerome, Verde Canyon Railroad. Quiet. Good Verizon broadband coverage. Our only complaint concerned the restrooms. The first couple of days they weren't very clean. Also, one day the showers were cold. Some shower heads barely sprayed any water.

This park is OK, especially for the price ($14.50 + electric) for Escapees members. We didn't use Wi-Fi, have spotty internet with broadband card, no cell phone coverage (Sprint). The biggest problem was only 30 amp electric and it was HOT--90-95 every day. Town of Wickenburg nearby is interesting. Would be worth coming back to.

The staff was very nice, the restrooms very clean, the laundry was reasonably priced and clean, we had good broadband card reception. Many long-term tenants. Good for a short stay, better than what we found in Vegas. Reasonable price with Good Sam discount.

This is great state park! The sites are huge, the restrooms very clean, the staff very friendly. The camp sites are cleaned and neat. Back-in sites may be a better choice on the left side of the road as some of the pull-throughs put you door right on the road. We were in site 36 and loved it.

The staff was very friendly and very helpful. We came in because of high wind on I-15. We didn't use wifi, but broadband access was very good. Restrooms were very very clean, though old. The rate reflects KOA discount and use of VIP points.

The camp sites are good, large, widely spaced. Broadband internet and satellite TV were great here. But we have used pit toilets that were cleaner. Two days into our stay, the restrooms were power washed, but they were so dirty to begin with, that didn't help a lot. They didn't even empty the trash in one after they washed it. The showers were OK after the power wash. There was a lot of litter that had not been picked up. This makes us leery of going to another Utah State Park.

Good for an overnight stay. Restrooms look like they are part of a jail but they were very clean. Side-by-side hookups but we had an end site and no one behind us. Staff was friendly and the park was quiet.

Older park, not updated. Sites are narrow. Our had a mud puddle, (we think from an underground water line leak). Owner's or manager's son helped us park, apparently didn't realize the problem. Sewer hookup is so far to rear it was difficult to hook up to water and electric, open bedroom slide without hitting tree and hook up to sewer. No grass. Restrooms marginally clean. Son was helpful with propane tank fill-up.

This is an excellent campground with plenty of room for large rigs and for tents. Some sites are full hookup, others lack sewer. Sites in D loop, especially, are large and private. Restrooms and showers are very nice. Laundry room is nice. We will return here often.

Most sites are not level; reservable site have tight curves, making use by larger RVs difficult. Most other sites are just a table and fire pit and tire tracks. Except in Tumbleweeds loop, sites are not level. That loop has concrete patios and straight gravel driveways and water hookups. There are no showers available. On the other hand, this state park is pretty and many sites have a view of the lake. I would give the park an 8 for atmosphere, 4 for camp sites.

This was our first visit to Cheyenne Mountain and we think it is an excellent campground. We loved our site--large, private, great views. The campground is quiet and has great trails for hiking and biking. The laundry was clean and reasonably priced. The restrooms were clean, spacious and very nice. We will definitely return.

It has easy access, and the restrooms are clean. The sites are narrow and side-by-side. That means absolutely no privacy. It is OK for overnight stay, not good for anything longer.

We had site W-1, a great site, large, shady. The park was quiet, the staff very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. There was a forest fire blocking access to the park from the west and they called us early the morning we were to arrive to let us know about that. We loved the park and will return again if in the area. Diesel fuel at the nearby resort is outrageous in cost ($5.60/gallon). Fill up before you arrive.

Sites are narrow and some are side-by-side hookups. Staff was friendly. Laundry is large and resonably priced. We were upset that KOA has discontinued the Gold Card 15% discount, but that isn't the local staff's fault.
