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.

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.

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.

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.

It was nice quiet and cooler than Phoenix. Friendly staff and the goats were a nice touch.

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.

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.

Facility location, sites and bathrooms were clean, easy access ad wonderful staff. We will be happy to stay there again and recommend this location to others.

The park was rustic but comfortable. Host we're very friendly. The goats were pretty cool. Great access to BCT! We will stay here again next year.

The quail and birds were awesome. Having goats right beside the pet park did NOT work for our dog. All she wanted to do was bark at the goats :(.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That's okay the goats don't mind. I hope your dog was amused.:)

Pet area water bowl was VERY dirty! Hosts were friendly and helpful.

The office staff was very friendly and helpful. The staff also sponsored a potluck for the park which was great fun. The pool opened in March and was very clean and delightful. A great monthly stay for Snow Birds from Colorado!

Perfect spot for us with access to trails for our RZR! Very caring staff willing to help with any need or concern. Will stay here again!
Mar 15, 2014
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Quiet and well maintained KOA.
Mar 14, 2014
Not crazy about goats roaming the camping area. Not any more unhealthy as dog feces left by inconsiderate guests

the only thing i would like changed is that the checkout be moved to 12 or 1 - not 11 i am not just talking about this KOA park - but perhaps we are just slow to get on the road - while here we had some 'safety' issues i needed to have addressed on our trailer - took a tch longer - i have safety oozing through my body as my 10 year old grand would say - and that took a bit longer

Excellent location to ride your ATV right from the park. Great restaurant close by. Great staff. Enjoyed our time here.
Mar 08, 2014
Bathrooms are recently remodeled but every amenity has extra cost. Folks seem friendly but their policies make you want to leave asap.

jack the owner was very helpful.bathrooms were 50% clean, way too much mud when it rained,need to put down more gravel.
Mar 04, 2014
We stayed for a week. The pool was not open. Other than that it was ok.
Mar 02, 2014
Good stay. Up to KOA standards. WIFI good.
Feb 22, 2014
The staff here is super! Jack is very helpful. Our first time there we discovered that La Mesa RV didn't give us a power cord and I'll be darned if he didn't go pick one up for us. We had to reimburse him of course but the fact is he saved the day. Another staff member, Wilt, helped us with our sway bar on the way out as we were never instructed on how to use it and he helped us.

This is the worst KOA. We stayed at Lordsberg, NM to give KOA one more chance and decided not to renew KOA card. Goats here leaving goat poop, a barking big dog tied to front door post. Grill dirty, toilet with water ring from not being cleaned and floor dirty. Not room to go on and on. Sorry KOA. Albuquerque was great. Since then all bad.
Feb 17, 2014
We had a great time and the office staff are very friendly.

Campground very clean. Scenery in mountains spectacular. Staff friendly and very helpful. Highly recommend.
