Enjoyed our stay. A bit noisy at night because of its proximity to the highway. Customer service was excellent. All facilities were very clean. The whole family enjoyed the experience of staying in the teepee. Withstood strong winds & rain during our stay. Great experience.

Clean facilities, helpful personnel were a plus. Horrible noise level from the highway traffic is the only negative, and that is not KOA's fault.

I am always treated well when I stay at a KOA.

Great staff and campgrounds are very clean and inviting. The only negative is the freeway noise at night.

We did enjoy our stay. The campgrounds were clean as were all the restrooms and showers, but what really shocked us was how small the camping spots were. It did not feel like camping at all. There was no seclusion or privacy. I had been to KOA in santa cruz previously and I believe there set up was a bit more free and less restricting. Overall, I would try other KOA's just not this one.

This was the worst KOA I have stayed in. The staff who checked me in, charged me again for my stay, like she wasn't paying attention to what she was doing, and not very friendly. I arrived around 11:30 a.m. The bathrooms I used, had a sign on the door that they were cleaned between 10 and 11 a.m. They were filthy. I slept in a teepee and it was falling apart. I have been spoiled by other KOAs.

The young man that greeted me when I arrived was so very kind. I was so tired I could hardly think! His help is appreciated and his kindness will be remembered :)

This KOA was mostly empty for our night of tent camping. The facilities are good and clean. There were a lot if spiders and ants, but this is expected in the desert. Overall pretty good, but I have certainly stayed a better.

The tent site had cigarette butts, bathrooms were not clean, shower stalls were leaking water, roaches and ants were roaming around the trash cans, I expected more from KOA.

We have stayed at this campground several times. We love it there and the staff is always so friendly and the entire grounds are perfectly kept. Always very clean! There was only one time the weather was too hot for us. We will definitely be back again!

Easy to find location off of the 15 FWY. Nice recreation area with pool and game room. Saturday family movie night is a nice touch. Bathrooms/showers are the cleanest I've ever seen in any campground. Kamping store satisfies all of the last minute needs and ice it cheap at $2 a bag. Tent sites are very small and will accomodate little more than a 12 X 12 tent. No fire pits, only grills for BBQ.

It's too dusty and windy, and noisy for tent campers. Do not want to stay there again as tent camper. For RV campers, this is a good location, I guess.
Aug 13, 2013
The staff is overall great and friendly, with the exception of one person. Overall I would stay there again perhaps when it isn't so hot!

I wasn't too fond of the cleanliness of the bathrooms, and I am not one to pay for showers, so I didn't use them.

The "overflow" bathrooms were disgustingly filthy and had not TP. The smoke alarm in the empty tee pee next to us went off in the middle of the night due to a low battery. When my husband informed the office in the morning, they seemed very casual and not at all apologetic for the disturbance it made for the whole campground!

We stayed two nights in a tent and really enjoyed it. Showers were ok, pool was clean and they have well equiped club house where we spent most of the day.
Jul 20, 2013
The staff was great. Friendly and made us feel welcome. We rented a TeePee. It was very dirty. The outside had disgusting amounts of bird droppings on it. The mattresses were dirty. We were also very disappointed that the pool closed at 9 pm as opposed to 10 during the middle of the Summer.

Séjour court donc pas le temps d'en profiter. Temps très chaud donc pas possible de faire beaucoup d'activités. Camping de passage plutôt.

My Fam. & I stayed for the 4th of July wk-end. Great campsite, very clean rest-rooms & showers!

Again a pleasure to stay at this well maintained campground. An oasis in the desert.

Needs maintainance/cleaning in general. We arrived after hours to discover that the door to our teepee was completely ripped off and that the teepee clearly had not been cleaned. Not up to usual great KOA standards. Staff was nice, however.

Used a tent site with wooden canopy and picnic table for an overnight stay. Playground, pool, laundry, bathroom and shower all were clean, open, and ready to use. We were worried that there was a red ant hill next to our site but they did their own thing and left us alone. They also let our camp neighbors plug in their c-max which was cool. Will stay again if travelling to/from Vegas etc.

Pool was dirty but everything else was great.

Staff was friendly. Tent sites were nice. Bathrooms could use some updating.

Only stayed one night, and this is the first time (for me) at a KOA. That said, we thoroughly enjoyed it. The setting was beautiful (looking north, and the rest of the views were nicely blocked by trees). The staff was helpful. The tent site amenities were well designed and nicely situated. We'll definitely be back whenever we pass through that way.

we would of enjoy it more had it not been for the really bad windy weekend. we left a day earlier we had little kids and couldn't do anything outside the tent. the campsite was nice and clean too.
May 20, 2013
had a great time as always. the staff is the best. i don't know why more people don't use the koa's more. we will be back.
May 12, 2013
Clean, well organized and easy to get in and out.

Every employee was wonderful and made our stay a great experience. Looking forward to coming back again.

Pool was not heated as advertised. Fire rings not available first night, but was comp'ed one for the second night. Rest of grounds were clean and well maintained. Staff was helpful & friendly.

We had a wonderfull time! It was so great to be close to Calico Ghost Town for the Wild West Fest! We were able to leave the fest and jump in the pool and go back! Sleeping in the only TeePee onsite was really amazing too. The staff was nice and friendly. When we first checked out our teepee there was a headlamp light in it, when we came back to camp it was gone. only bad thing. not bad. love Site
