To the caretakers it may seem warranted however rules were posted everywhere... this sends a bad message to first time visitors when some level of common sense trust is the norm at KOAs

Convenient location for visiting Phoenix area.

Friendly staff lots of weeds that I felt could be trimmed in camping areas to make it look better. Hot showers, great!!! nice and quiet at night. definately would stay again!

When i got to the camp ground i have requested deluxe cabin an was not told on the phone that there was none.I also had my god son with me he was very disappointed that the pool was closed an was never told on the phone that it was closed either.The grass did need some trimming around the pool area an other places.Also the rv spaces were to close together an was expecting a bigger camp ground.

Entire campground in poor shape. Bathrooms horrible - dirty and not well maintained. Staff friendly, but didn't make up for the condition of the campground.

Great staff! Very friendly and accommodating made for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Will definitely be back and making plans for stays at other KOA's. Thanks tons

This KOA has, by far, the best and most usefull WiFi set-up of any of dozens of KOA's we have stayed in over the last two years from coast to coast. "Tengointernet" sucks in 90% of KOA's. KOA would do well to find out how, and duplicate Black Canyons system if they are interested in more than saying they have WiFi in their parks. (1Q3M2X)

The gentleman who checked us in was very friendly and helpful. However, in the KOA book it stated that the campground was nicely landscaped. It was NOT at all. With the threat of snakes and high, overgrown weeds, we were concerned. The bathrooms were filthy dirty and smelled horrible.

The view from our site was great. That said, it was NOT level, the pick nick table was poor & there was no bbq grill. We like the location, so we'll come back, but hope that they level & improve the are & equipment.

It definitely wasnt what i expected from a KOA. The playground was dangerous, it belonged in a scene from the Chainsaw Massacre. No joke i thought it was going to fall apart. The kabins are directly infront of the lodge check-in and the entrance is directly behind the kabins. No privacy what so ever. The pictures on the website must be from years ago, very deceving.

Not happy with the campground at all. Poorly kept bathrooms, the laundry facilities cost money (which i understand) , but should at least finish the job, campsites marginal, pool area, not nice. Just in general not happy and will not be returning.

Very dirty bathrooms and unkempt grounds. Not a lot of pride shown in the property.

$42 pr night not a fair rate for condition of campground. All gravel, weeds in our site. Hot tub nice. People nice.

Handicap shower needs repair: Shower nozzle is broken, doesn't hang on wall and water dribbles out. Should be more aware of ADA. General store needs more choices ie., dairy products etc.

I have camped at KOA's throughout the United States, and was hugely disappointed at the quality offered at this one. Cleanliness was substandard, in terms of the bathroom, and the service lacking at times. I left a very disappointed customer.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay.It's beautiful and peaseful. Thank You

It was a very nice kampground but a little out of the way for us and our plans. When our plans change, we will for sure come back.

Horriable Place. 1st exprience for my wife/kids. Office was closed from 11-2 open 2-5. Then the manger went to take the goats out for a walk we asked for a fire pit and he said should have asked when he was in the office to late and

Advertised that pool was open year-round. It was green and inoperative. Advertised playground, it is very broken and has been for at least 3 years. Not kid-friendly. Bathrooms in bad shape.

Man who managed the place not very friendly, pool water was green! Only one toilet working!
Mar 16, 2013
Bad all the way around from day one when our site was changed even though we make res 4 mos. in advance. Poorly maintained property Worst KOA ever stayed in,and we stay in a lot!!!!!

The cabin was decent and the staff was very friendly, but the campground left much to be desired. They didn't even have any firepits.
Mar 15, 2013
The campgrounds are fantastic and the owners friendly. My only suggestion would be to put hooks in the ladies handicapped showroom and to give the bathroom facilities a sprucing up with some new paint. I would stay there again.

Sorry but this is a poor campsite, the site is very haphazard, long stay sites very untidy, our pitch was uneven the gravel had not been raked or repaired the mens bathroom was very poor and needed repairs. It was definitely overpriced.

We will certainly come back.

Nice reception, beautiful area, a little rough but will return.

Cable was weak---could've get a good solid picture---everything else at the camp is great!

Owner and staff very friendly as well as other visitors. Clean, quiet, although we were gone during the daytime hours. Friendly little town.

We were overwhelmed with the kindness and generosity shown to us by Jack and Jim. And especially Jims willingness to start our RV while in storage. And the other little email requests were all seen to. Wonderful and helpful guys. Thank you. Than k you again.

Great Campground. Friendly staff. Beautiful view.

If this was the first KOA I had ever stayed at I would never stay at one again. Toilet in ladies room was broken for the 2 weeks we stayed. Showers were disgusting. Trash was strewn along the edges. Dryers took 2 cycles to dry - owner said that they were old. Half torn down mobile home on premises. Landscaping - a mess. Plastic bags caught on bushes & left. Wi-Fi good, people friendly. Sad.

We stayed for 5 months and loved it. Great views of the surrounding mountains, clean air, nicely landscaped. Our 5th wheel was next to a huge Pepper tree that provided shade and privacy as well as a great breeze in the evening. Clean and homey. We would go back again. Thank you for a great stay.
