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.


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.


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.


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 :(.


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

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!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Quiet and well maintained KOA.

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.

We stayed for a week. The pool was not open. Other than that it was ok.

Good stay. Up to KOA standards. WIFI good.

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.

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.

Very dirty, owner has many issues. Worst month of my life. I can say after this experience, I will never stay at a KOA again. I thought you had higher standards to allow such a dump to be listed as a KOA. It's apparent no one from KOA has checked that place out in a long time.I have pictures I would love to share with you.


Admitted at check in "did not like to travel". Had problems with this since day of reservation. Required site with no one around them. Put them on end of row facing BLM open space, upgraded their site. Stayed by themselves no interaction until super bowl party. I believe this was a maiden voyage.

This is a remarkable RV park that offers beautiful individual sites of rock formations. It is spacious, quiet and located next to a nature preserve. The hookups are 30 amps and all surfaces are graveled roads. I haven't found anything this unique, was very pleased and it is a short drive to Prescott. Some RV's need 50 amp service and wider roads for big rigs so I did not rate it higher for all .

Very friendly staff and nice conditions except for the women's bathroom. There was a sign "no hair dying in shower" that must explain why the shower floor looked a filthy brown color. Aside from that it was a very enjoyable stay.

Been a KOA, I was expecting better for the price I paid. Concerning the up keeping of the ground there were no maintenance of landscaping surrounding each site & they were not level which create problem to level our unit. We travelled with friends who had their motorhome.

This campground has been around a long time. It has that distinguished older look and feel. We enjoyed a quiet night off the highway and the landscape and birds provided a delightful scene and sounds to wake to.

Overnight. Hosts were excellent and helpful as I had an oversize unit. The whole campground including showers etc was very clean

As a new RVer this is only the forth KOA I have stayed in and so far I have enjoyed every stay and will continue staying in KOA camp grounds Regards

Campground is not kept up, full of weeds, unfinished projects, small space, hard to get into, sign posts laying on angles, dirty bathrooms. The hosts are great and try very hard to make stay pleasant, but after staying here for 6 years with hope of things getting better and only getting worse will not stay here again.Great people but poor KOA.


Internet order, picked the cheapest site, between Christmas and new years. Never talked to owner never asked for an upgrade and considering it was December and we are in drought there were no weeds. We didn't start having weed problems until late January. M Booth and F Prichard have pictures.
