Just to add my current comments to the previous ones. Staff very helpful and friendly...I was offered supper (delivered) and breakfast in the restaurant but declined. Beautiful spot with large spaces; the wi-fi acted up a bit, but seemed to settle down later (movie streamers?). Rate is pretty high for this area.

This place is a gem, and the price is great! I think I have the whole park (and lake) to myself! Rates have changed a bit from the website. Sunday-Thursday are the lowest. And don't miss the aquariums and short interpretive film at the visitor center.

Great place to stop/stay along I-25. Very well-maintained and well-priced. This CG does NOT have toilets or showers, so you have to be self-contained. Owner/manager is very friendly and helpful. Lots of coyotes singing at night, but otherwise very quiet. I took a hike down to the lakeside. A great place for a campfire and photo op. Would definitely return.

Every once in awhile, a campground comes along to show that it can be done right at a reasonable price...and this is one of those campgrounds. The location isn't really scenic, and there isn't a swimming pool, but the Wi-Fi is free and works great, the ample bathrooms and showers are among the best we've seen, and the cable TV worked, too. Nicely landscaped, clean and quiet.

This place is a gem. I cannot add very much to previous posts. We stayed in area "A" which is just 2-way; areas "B" "C" and "D" are 3-way and there are the river sites which are dry camping. The bathrooms and showers are dated but clean. A real bargain in a beautiful location. We will return for a longer stay!

This campground has lots of pluses: well-designed, concrete pads, spotless bathrooms and showers, but it is just a place to stop for a night or two. The "lake" is a small man-made pond. We could not get the wi-fi to work on either of our two laptops, and when we called the manager, he simply said, "Something must be wrong with your computers" despite the fact that we had logged onto dozens of networks with no problems. Fee schedule starts at $20 for a 30-amp hookup; extra for water, wi-fi, cable, and/or dumping.

We stayed here two nights in November, so there was no water at our site due to below freezing temperatures, but everything else was working. Great showers and good wi-fi. Beautiful location among oak and hickory trees. The pull-through sites are a little too close together for larger rigs; most of the "pond-front" sites are back-ins. I took some time to drive down to the waterfront park in Keokuk, and enjoyed walking around the locks and steamboat museum.

Nice enough campground. Don't agree that it shouldn't be a KOA. There are three areas. The first has the longest pull-through sites, concrete pads, fairly level, near an amphitheater (summer concerts?). The second has somewhat shorter pull-through sites, and will require leveling blocks or jacks. The third is on top of a ridge (fairly steep grade) but very scenic, overlooking a high school baseball field. They now have Wi-Fi but it is erratic. The lady at the Days Hotel (where you register) said we could use the hotel amenities (indoor/outdoor pool, exercise room, restaurant). Pricy, but would stay here again.

This is a summer resort located on Lake Chautauqua. We stayed here for one night as a stopover. We might have been the only ones here. There are limited sites for "drop-ins" but we were able to park our 55'+ motorhome/toad combo. Access roads are fairly narrow, and I suspect someone towing a long trailer might have difficulties. Wireless and cable TV worked great. Restrooms and showers were OK, but must be busy in the summer. BTW: Woodall's says go "southeast" on 394 off I-68, but you actually go northwest toward Stow, NY.

We really loved this park. It's very clean, very quiet, and right along a river. Not hard to find, but the entrance lane is narrow. Be sure to take Exit 58 if you are on I-64. Staff is very friendly, Wi-Fi and cable TV worked great. We rode out one of the worst outbreaks of thunderstorms and tornadoes here. Also drove to neighboring Georgetown to check out some of the antique stores there. Would definitely return.

Not much has changed from the previous review. Has easy access and large level sites. Staff was friendly and helpful. We pulled in here to get out of terrible winds that had blown over three semi's outside of town. Ok for a stopover.

It's a shame that with all the beautiful country in the area that this park is located where it is: not exactly scenic. But the sites are level with concrete pads and iron grills, and the Wi-Fi worked well. The restrooms/showers are clean but not very appealing or private. The showers are just curtained-off from the toilet area. I could not get any air TV signal. Right next to the highway (U.S. 54) so there was some noise.

This is one of three RV parks in Delta, and is located on U.S. 50 on the north fork of the Gunnison River. It is an older park with quite a few "long-term" residents in older rigs. Water, electric, Wi-Fi, cable TV, and sewer adequate; dirt/sand sites with picnic tables and grills; numerous large trees right on the river but hardly picturesque; some noise from nearby highway. Manager showed us to our site. Rate reflects G/S discount but I'm not sure if they are G/S members. Toilets and showers very clean but no heat, and no lights on at night which was a little scary. After reading reviews on other parks in Delta, this one seems typical. OK for an overnight.

This is a fine place to stay, albeit a bit overpriced. The sites are level, some have shade trees; there are hook-ups at both ends of the pull-throughs, and the bathrooms and showers are standard KOA which we have found, as a rule, is above your standard off-the-rack RV park; especially in a town of only 923 people! We stayed here so we could go to the John Wesley Powell River Museum which is just across the street right on the Green River: and is a MUST SEE if you have the time. We would stop here again.

We really enjoyed this park; it was very clean and well-managed; the staff was friendly and helpful answering our questions about the surrounding area. No sewer smell that I could detect; and had no trouble getting into the pull-through site with our 32' MH. The pool was not open, and our rate was reduced accordingly; also used KOA discount. Our only complaint was the Wi-Fi which was a bit iffy. It tended to fade in and out, and the manager had to reset the modem in the morning. We would stay here again.

A good, basic park for over night or base to explore the Grand Canyon area. We got here via historic Route 66 from Kingman to Seligman which is much nicer than I-40. As mentioned, the BNSF train traffic is pretty intense, but no whistle for a grade crossing. We enjoy hearing the trains anyway. It has Good Wi-Fi (free), clean bathrooms. We would stay here again. The rate reflects KOA member discount plus taxes.

This is a lot of park for the money; our rate reflects a Good Sam discount. It's really a 55+ retirement community, but does take in overnighters. No cable TV; Wi-Fi costs extra, so we didn't try it; but there is an "indoor" pool and a rec center with books, DVDs and VHS loans. No shade so summer heat would be an issue; quite a bit of traffic noise from I-10 about a half mile away.

Not very much to add to previous review. This is one of the friendliest campgrounds we've ever stayed in. Quite a few Canadian snowbirds. The site manager isn't around all that much but you can reach her on her cell. Not to worry: the residents will make sure you get set up and welcomed. Small heated pool and hot tub available; bathrooms and showers very clean; good cable TV and Wi-Fi. The 2-for-1 promotion has been discontinued, unfortunately. We would return.

Not very much to add to previous reviews. The park is pretty basic...three levels on a sloped site, but all sites are more or less level and graveled. We were in level 2 and the Wi-Fi worked very well and was free. Lots of locals or semi-permanent set-ups; bathrooms and showers and laundry very clean The young lady at the desk (Red Door Cafe) was new, but very friendly and helpful...good coffee and pastries! After seeing the rest of Espanola, I think this is as good as it gets.

This is the best place to stay in the area; the rate reflects 50% discount for Seniors Pass. Our motorhome is 32' long and we had no problems navigating Loop 1. There are only 2-3 sites large enough to accommodate larger rigs. Yes, longer trailers would be difficult to park. But the view and the seclusion were magnificent. And I might add that I didn't think the sand dunes would be interesting, but I was wrong! Definitely worth a stop.

This is a great park! Friendly, helpful staff and as close to to Taos City Center as you are going to find in an RV. As for the gravel and sagebrush, this IS New Mexico you know? Many 3-way sites have concrete pads, Wi-Fi is free and works great... 24-hr laundry facilities on site. We would stay here again. BTW, the manager identified two large free parking areas for RVs close to city center.

Just your average urban RV park with quite a few permanent residents, but well-maintained and fairly quiet although we weren't far from the highway or the railroad. No pecan harvesting at this time of the year! The Wi-Fi required a login and the manager would only provide one code for free (we carry two laptops) but that was not a big problem. For anyone headed west toward Cloudcroft and down to Alamogordo, the signs state "Trucks over 11 tons without engine retarders are prohibited." There is 14 miles of 6% downhill grade there...we weigh about 11 tons and have a gas engine...we made it down safely but was locked in second gear pretty much the whole way. Would not recommend trying to go UPHILL without lots of stops.

The location of the park is not that convenient if you are south of Carlsbad and want to visit Guadalupe NP or Carlsbad Caverns NP, and it is in a very exposed area...nothing to break the wind or the sun...but it was a very well-maintained CG and the reception was very friendly. We were offered a BBQ pork sandwich, potato salad, and pinto beans supper for $5.50 delivered to our site...very good! Wi-Fi and cable worked well. We would stay here again.

Just one night here, but it suited our needs...spent the whole day in Big Bend NP and exited the west gate at sundown, so Terlingua was very convenient. Everything worked...cable, Wi-Fi, water, electric...and the staff was friendly and helpful. We debated staying in the campground in the NP at Rio Grande Village, and it looked OK (would have been a more scenic location)...maybe next time.

This place is a veritable oasis in the desert! Yes, it's small, but the owners are intent on making it a pleasant place to stop whether you stay in the cabins or your RV. Sites are level and large; Wi-Fi is great; and the bathrooms are works of art! You have a 360-degree view of the southwest landscape; and as for the noise, give me the sound of an occasional truck or better yet, the BNSF high balling it across the desert rather than barking dogs or screaming kids...anytime. We used it as a jumping off stop for Big Bend NP, but would stop here anytime we're crossing western Texas...in fact, we might even spend a week here.

What a gem! We've stayed across the river at Garner State Park before, but it was full so we tried this private CG. Quite a few snowbirds here, and they seem to be very social. Beautiful full hookup sites right on the Frio River. Small store onsite but no other amenities; golf course nearby; Wi-Fi very good but they charge $3 for each 24-hr connection to Tengo. Bathrooms and showers very clean, and the whole place is so quiet!

This is a nice park if you are just passing through, although it seems to have quite a few "permanent" residents and some snowbirds. It has beautiful large trees which offer shade and some buffering of the street noise; the bathrooms are immaculate; and there is a great BBQ across the street if you want to take a chance crossing the five lanes of traffic. No other amenities...they say they don't have Wi-Fi but we were able to snag a nearby signal.

You can't get any closer to the Gulf of Mexico without getting your feet wet! This is a very nice state park campground with two areas: in the woods and on the beach. The beach campsites (where we stayed) are very close to the water and the nose of our motorhome was about 20' from the breakwater. There is a small shelter with picnic table at each site which offers protection from rain, wind, and sun. We were able to pickup the Wi-Fi signal because we set up near the washrooms. Many visitors seem to be fishing in the area...the beach is not really that suitable for swimming or beach combing.

This campground is not listed in any of the major directories (we found it via this site) and it's not in the Louisiana campground directory, but don't let that deter you. it is one of the nicest campgrounds we've been in. All new facilities with large, level sites located on a small bayou. There are no signs and even our GPS had trouble locating it so use the map view from this site to pinpoint it. For anyone who has a long-haired dog, beware of the Cyprus needles which can only be removed by cutting them out!

Just stayed here one night, but seems like a nice place. Staff very friendly and the restaurant in the park serves a mean southern-style breakfast between 7-8 a.m. Quite a few permanent residents, but that didn't affect our stay. Beautiful location and the Wi-Fi worked well. Restroom and showers were dated and could use some sprucing up. Most sites graveled or concrete...we would stay here again.

Although our brief stay here was pleasant enough, this park falls well short of most travelers expectations. If we had read earlier reviews (as we usually do) we wouldn't have been so surprised. The chickens and dogs are still running around, the permanent residents still have some pretty run-down rigs, and the train still shakes the earth when it passes by at 4:00 am! Plus the roosters are up at 5:00 am! Washrooms were really dilapidated and not very clean...Wi-Fi available in office. Would not stay here again.

This is beautiful facility operated by the State of Florida, and the only reason I couldn't give it a 10 was because there is no internet available. The sites have concrete pads and are comfortably spaced for a resort. I was disappointed that the small swimming pool was closed (Dec., Jan., and Feb. according to the ranger), but there were lots of walking trails and a pristine white-sand beach just a short walk away (3/4 mile). We stayed an extra night because we liked it so much.

We just stopped here for one night, but it's a very nice park with a small lake full of migrating waterfowl...swans, Canada geese, mallards, etc. The sites are a bit narrow for a larger rig with slide-outs, but services worked fine. There is a fairly well-stocked store with laundromat. We would stay here again.

This is a huge campground/resort and we stayed here primarily because it offered beach access (my wife is a sea glass collector). Staff was friendly, the site was just a short distance from the beach with a small shelter and table...nothing notable; but for the price, this was definitely a bargain in this neighborhood!

Another single-night stopover, but this place is really nice. Friendly, helpful staff and plenty of hot water in the showers. Everything is very clean and well-maintained. It's location (seven miles off the Interstate) makes for a very quiet, restful stay.

We just used this park for a one-night stopover on our way south. Despite some bad reviews, this park was certainly not the worst we've stayed at. The staff were friendly and helpful on the phone and when we got here; the pull-thru was narrow but level and dry. Lots of seasonal rigs but they'd all left when we were here! Lots of hot water in the showers.

Just a quick stopover here on the way south for the winter. We picked this site because of its location along our route and the fact that it is "open all year." We received a courteous reply to our email inquiry, registered online, and were greeted by a very friendly woman on our arrival! There is about six inches of snow covering everything, but the park looks clean and well-maintained...bathrooms and showers very clean. We would stay here again.

This is a good place to stop just before/after crossing the border. It's very neat and clean, but nothing else remarkable. There is a $1 charge for Wi-Fi which works well, and the showers are of the "pay forward" variety. There is quite a bit of traffic noise despite the fact that the park is set back quite a distance from the road. Used our Good Sam discount here.

We are not usually "KOA people" (too big, too close to highway, too many kids, etc.) but we really enjoyed staying here. Showers and bathrooms were fine, and the Wi-Fi worked very well. They gave us 10% off for AAA/CAA membership. We stayed here twice for one night only so did not take advantage of the pool or other amenities.

We stayed one night here. It is a huge resort with many seasonal residents. We we lucky to have checked their site online, because we got a rate of $28 instead of the usual $48. Sites are large and shaded; we were serenaded by the sound of numerous acorns falling on our roof! As a stopover, this place is overkill, but at our rate, it was very nice and a bargain. We could not get a Wi-Fi signal.

OK...so it's now 2010 and this campground has changed hands once again! Unfortunately, things have gone downhill...my wife calls this the "out-of-order" campground, since there is only one unisex bathroom/shower for the whole campground...the others are "out-of-order" as are the washing machines and the change machine! When I asked for a reduced rate, the friendly clerk said, "But there is ONE bathroom that works so I have to charge you full rate." Other than that, there are a lot of seasonals/permanent residents here, the Wi-Fi works well, the sites are level and graveled, and it's quiet. Needless to say, we will not be returning.

The park is OK but nothing to rave about. Most of the best sites are occupied by the many seasonal dwellers. The beach was sandy but also had a lot of seaweed and garbage, but good swimming! Wi-Fi was free but only available near the office. Our site was very narrow. Bathrooms and showers were basic but very clean.

There are three areas: A, B and C. Sites in A are wooded, 2-way, good spacing and fairly level, but would not accommodate any bigger rig. Sites in B are open, water view, pull-through, 3-way but very close together. Sites in C are closest to the water but unserviced. Nice location, friendly staff, bought four pounds of frozen mackerel fillets for $8. Area for swimming with rocky beach. Probably would not return but good stopover park.

The sign says, "Be prepared to stay longer than you planned," which is exactly what we did! Facilities are a bit dated but the location can't be beat. We stayed in site 2. All of the RV sites have a fantastic view of the ocean. The beach is only a short walk, is clean and uncrowded. My wife collects sea glass, and she says this is the best place she's ever seen. Stayed three nights!

Nice campgrounds along the Spragge River. We were there early in the season so the pool was not open. There were good graveled level sites. Right on the highway so there was some traffic noise. Very clean bathrooms and showers.

Nice location on a lake just north on U.S. Hwy 2. Pretty basic amenities, but they did have a great woodfire going in the recreation building! Also charged an additional $2 for Wi-Fi hookup, but it worked well. Quite a few seasonal units in place.

This place is only half-open...the bathrooms are out of commission and there's no Wi-Fi. But they are only charging $20 and it is in a beautiful location. We were here several years ago, and it looks like they've made some improvements since then...should be nice later in the season!

Avoid this campground at all costs! We arrived at 3:00 in the afternoon; no staff, honor system check-in. Then we find out that the women's bathrooms are closed for "renovations"; the Wi-Fi doesn't work; and the place looks like Death Valley. We have stayed here before under better circumstances, but will not stay here again! If we could get our money out of the dropbox, we'd keep on truckin'. The "new owners" have a lot to learn about RVing.

Excellent RV park! Three-way sites are a bit small in the "compound area" but the 2-way sites that look out over the lake are much bigger (and cheaper!). Very clean bathrooms and showers, beautiful heated pool. We also made use of the free morning yoga classes at the recreation center. Check with the park to avoid some of the large fishing contests and rallies that are held here. Unless that's why you are going!

We stayed here during March/April, 2010, and enjoyed every day. The sites are a bit narrow especially if you have an extra vehicle in tow. Staff are very friendly; bathrooms are spotless; hiking trail to downtown Manitou Springs (west) or Garden of the Gods (east); Pikes Peak looms over your front door. Located on Manitou Ave. so it can be a bit noisy. We would recommend it to anyone who is passing through or plans to see the surrounding area.
