Campground Reviews

Jack and Susan were friendly, courteous, and extremely helpful. Clean restrooms. Beautiful scenery. Enough trail riding for days. Just to make a note we didn't have many channels for television. Agnes & Frank

The place is very close to the freeway so we could hear all the traffic. The place is clean and nice, cabins are clean so are the bathrooms. Plenty of shower stalls. All of the visitors except us were RVs at the time we went in June for Father's Day. It's as hot as Phoenix.

Camp ground needs a lot of attention. The only thing we enjoyed about the campground was the pool. The campground staff was almost invisible.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You were here 7 nights. The store/office is always staffed, except when we have business out on the campground or we are cleaning restrooms. Staff and management are always accessible. In case of emergency or if you need a reservation, the phone is forwarded to onsite staff who can assist you.

My daughter's family and I had a wonderful stay. My 3yr old granddaughter had a blast. She made a camp-friend, they played at the play ground. We got to do panning for gold and gems. Our cabins were clean and the residences were nice and helpful. We will come back (also for the Rock Springs Pies, Yummy).

My husband and I stayed in a cabin which was great! Loved the swing. The wildlife and the animals at the campsite were great(goats, chickens). Can't wait to go back!
May 26, 2014
Loved the people who work there. Very nice to us. LOVED the goats. Thanks for a good time!

If you can overlook the lack of personality of the guy working the front desk then you should stop there. The place is just plain run down and under maintained. There is algae growing in the pool and we were told they were doing hot tub maintenance since "no one ever uses it during the weekdays." We definitely would have used it. Showers were the best part of this KOA.

Very nice. Have never been disappointed at a KOA.

Perfect stay in a Kabin! The cabin was clean, comfortible, and we loved the porch swing! This KOA is outstanding when it comes to an inexpensive comfortable way to camp. A grill and picnic table is provided at each site, the campgrounds are clean and quiet. Showers, restrooms, and camp store are located near the sites. Hiking is just feet away. Beautiful place to get away.

We had a wonderful time. Clean cabin and restrooms and a great dog park for our 4 'kids'. The playground was also a big hit with our 3 year old granddaughter. Very friendly staff,

Unclean outdated (screw in fuses) pool dirty plugged toilet. Office hours are bizarre.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Site 54 is a 30/20 amp site. 20 amp side is fuse protected & 30 amp side is breaker protected at the Row connection box. They meet electric code. Checking records, the plugged toilet was due to excess paper being used (estimated 4 yards). Office hours are 8-11am & 2-6pm & the phones are forwarded.

Hi, I will try and cover this with the all points if I can. Owner poor attitude, Very untidy property, Dirty wash rooms, cost very high, very dirty pool we would not swim in, Hot tube no water water, entrance road very poor. We were very disappointed. Thank You

The owners or managers don't abide by your own rules regarding pets. While walking my dog the KOA dog broke it's restraint and attacked my dog fortunately for the owner and dog mine was not injured. There also were two other dogs a camper did not restrain which I reported but were still loose when I left!

Jack and Susan were amazing! From our phone call reservation from the road to checking in everything was a breeze. We had a lovely stay and even extended our stay by a night because we felt so relaxed. Thanks for adding great chapter to our trip!

Peaceful, beautiful, clean, nice people, lots of nature. Very nice camp sites, with easy hook ups.

The place is messy, especially around the pool area. The goats and chickens can be fun, but it attracts flies, etc. We have stayed here three times and this will probably be the last. We located a nicer place in Black Canyon City.

Great place to stay. Price a little high for location.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our pricing is determined by looking at our direct (most similar) competition within a 15 mile radius offering similar amenities. With our numerous discount programs we fall below their pricing. It's apples and oranges. You may be able to find better pricing, but it comes down to a trade off.

Needs more up-keep. More personal is needed. There was a fair turnover in 3 days time. That indicates it could be more successful with some greater general care. Some long term sites were unkempt and quite unattractive. Bath facility nice but not properly maintained. Sites need attention. Small and tight and disrepair in some.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Ty, your stay was at the end of the snowbird season and my work kampers are on their way to their next assignments. That's business. Now the summer starts and we can work on sites that have been vacated by snowbirds. 1971 we opened, no one conceived a 4 slide rig, but they were built wide.:)

Tall cactus, cute cabins, and delicious pie at a nearby restaurant!

We like the campground very much, but wish your sites were flatter.

Bathrooms could have been cleaner

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Bathrooms are cleaned once a day, checked at the beginning of the day, at the end of the day and periodically when the staff uses them. Traffic and individual's "habits" are always a problem. If I could have specifics like "toilet paper left on floor" or "tooth paste left in sink" that would help.

we stay there every year and its a nice spot with friendly people. great amenities
Apr 16, 2014
It was nice quiet and cooler than Phoenix. Friendly staff and the goats were a nice touch.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Translation: Beautiful Sun, nice people, we appreciate the presence of the domesticated animals especially Billy the goat. Marvelous time(?). I recommend it.

Just not enough to do in the area to justify more than one night. Campground ok Nice folks

To Be Fair I Need To Say The Staff Is Very Friendly and Helpful, However The Park Itself Is The Worst My Husband And I Have Ever Stayed In, Filth And Trash In The Sites Including Broken Glass, Old Bottle Caps, Cigarette Butts Etc. The Entire Park Is Littered With Junk Everyehere. The Owner Also Keeps A King Snake In The Office In A Small Aquarium, Not Sure That's Even Legal. We Left 3 Days Early.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The customer has been here 3 times in the last 3 years. No mention of this was made to either myself or the office. I sense that there is a lot of stress here, noting the capitalization of every individual word. The Kingsnake is native to the park & has been here for 9 years and is a teaching tool.

Only neg was too near the freeway. Noise was terrible.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Customer was on Site 57, roughly 1400 plus feet from the main entrance of the Campground. Possibly a light sleeper because we usually don't get complaints of this nature.

Nice natural site. When we asked about staying an additional day at our site we we're wanted to pay for our electricity use! The man was very insisting that we did not know which site we were in!!?? We also purchased propane, which was very expensive, and he did not close the valve completely. Stated this and was told that I was wrong ...I was right and he finally gave me a tool to tighten it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Customer stayed 8 nights, plus an additional one. I have no idea what the reference to the electric is - that is included in the site fees. Propane was expensive this time of year. I was the only one with supply for 15 mi each way. Charged cost plus 40% std markup.
Mar 28, 2014
I was very unhappy with my stay. First I did't like walking through goat poop to go to the office or the pool. The owner walked them around and would never clean up after them. I believe dog owners are required too. The shower has water standing behind the handicap toilet and is rarely cleaned up. If this is any way the other KOA's are like I don't see us staying at any other KOA in the future.
