Got there during monsoon season ... owner was working hard to get things back into shape.

The campground was poorly taken care of. The palm trees hadn't been trimmed in years, the sites had weeds and dead plants, Shrubs were overgrown enough that we couldn't walk on the path to the office and laundry room. The office was closed periodically during the daily hours when it should have been open. The driveway was crumbling. The garbage dumpster and area was filthy. I will never stop again

We traveled from WI to CA. Five nights stays in Koa parks. We had a motorhome pulling a trailer and a van pulling a trailer. They were the only ones to charge us a parking fee. All the other Koa's were very helpful finding us places to park the van and trailer at no extra cost.

Owner very pleasant and helpful. Place was clean. It was not really for me. It is definaty in the dessert which means snakes, healamonsters, wild pigs, etc I am not crazy about any of that. If someone like that thing go for it

The communication/customer service was all around terrible. The web said breakfast and there was nothing not even coffee cause it was 'summer'. Jacuzzi was broken and my credit card was charged extra without being advised.

It was a hot day and the restrooms/showers had no A/C on. The front office did not turn on the A/C. It was very uncomfortable.

This campground is run down. Small spaces, needs updated and cleaned up. Management is pleasant and accommodating. Some time and money needs to be put into the campground. It is in a nice desert setting.

Bathrooms amongst the worst load I've been to. WiFi was terrible.

Animal friendly and great pool area.

The pool was unusable the day we arrived, the water was cloudy. There was green algae around the edges of the pool for at least 3 days. The grounds around the sites were messy. The customer service from the office our group of 4 rigs received was satisfactory. The facility was not up to par with every other KOA we have ever stayed at.

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

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

Just a quick overnight stay. Did not use any of the amenities....

Friendly and helpful staff--helped me figure out a TV technical issue. Nice pool and spa with good views.

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.
May 24, 2014
Very nice. Have never been disappointed at a KOA.
May 21, 2014
Unclean outdated (screw in fuses) pool dirty plugged toilet. Office hours are bizarre.
May 19, 2014
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!

Good camp ground. Needs some repairs . The positives was the service and location for me.

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.

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.

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.:)

Enjoyed the campground and surrounding area. Nice place to stay while in Phoenix.

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.
