We stayed a few years ago and enjoyed it, but this time it was even better. The staff we spent time with were all super friendly. Helen was making the rounds talking with anyone within 50 yards of the office. She was "wicked awesome". Taelor and Kraig were friendly and made our stay fabulous.

hated location by prison. also no elec to plug in hairdryer or curling iron in bathrm - first campgrnd ever without that. would never stay again. Toilet paper gone in one stall by 7 am. someone in hammock in my spot after 3rd cabin by office so had to find another spot. hard after dark.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

There are outlets in the bathroom over the sinks. You checked in at 3:30pm, on your map we have an after hours number to call if there is an issue. If someone is in your site when you return after dark please come by the office or call us and we will fix the issue. The prison is over 2 miles away.

Great breakfast! Beautiful view. They let us borrow a 220/110 converter for our rental RV which was a great help. I've cream social was nice. Staff was helpful and friendly. No complaints.

Best KOA yet

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you!
Aug 16, 2016
This KOA is below standard compared to others I have stayed. No grass... Just weeds and dirt. Sights are extremely unlevel.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you didn't like your stay. We are in the high desert with limited water, so we can't grow grass. If it wasn't for weeds we'd have nothing green.

Too loud, people coming in late. Also, you need to do more maintenance, weeds need to be pulled near registration/store, painting is sloppy, ants all over our site (ant source is very visible. Just need to put more time and effort into keeping such a beautiful site up to standards.

Thanks for your comments

This KOA was nicely located near biking and hiking trails. While not a updated park it was kept clean and staff was helpful.

Would have liked sewer hookup

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We would have been happy to provide you one, but you booked your stay 5 days before arrival, and all our full hookup sites were already reserved.

Grass and weeds needed trimming all over the grounds. Laundry area was very clean. Good variety of items in store.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are working on trimming, we've been full and finding time is tough.

We had a great time. Nice sites and the view is amazing. Dog walk is a nice amenity, complete with multiple options for disposing of your pet's waste. Too bad some campers can't pick up after their dogs, no matter how easy they make it for them. The Cook Shack was great and Stephen an awesome cook and camp neighbor. Thanks for a great experience.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed your stay- and the pet owners who fail to pick up after their dogs drive us nuts too!!!

Need to be more strict with bathroom cleaning times. If it's 11-1 then make sure it's done.If you're going to repair a faucet and are turning the water off to the building maybe don't clean the other building at same time.It's not at all convenient to your guests.The campground is nice otherwise, some sites are quite a distance from the bathrooms. Our site said near bathroom definitely not at all.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the timing of the water repair- we try to fix things middle of the day when the campground is least busy- and it was 12:30.
Aug 12, 2016
The campground is in a beautiful setting. The hosts are personable and professional. The bathrooms and showers are clean as are the camp sites.

We paid, then went to the hotsprings, upon our return someone was setting up camp in our space. It made us feel somewhat uneasy. The campground was pretty noisy with residents and the highway below. The worst part was the HORRIBLE road coming in. About rattled us to death!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The county finally graded the entrance road.

Always a pleasure!!!!

For us as well!

Have loved this location for 7 or 8 summers in just the last 11 yrs! Perhaps 3 diff management teams over this period have all kept consistently high standards. I'm sure we will be back. Friendly staff too!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We'll be glad to have you back!

Mostly level sites, all gravel roads, but we managed in a 40' coach. Beautiful scenery. Reservations and changes were efficiently handled by very nice office staff. Wifi worked well during our visit. All you could ask for! Certainly will stay here again!

Did a load of laundry and the dryers didn't heat. Took forever not to mention the cost. Would go back and was a good location.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Please let us know if you are having problems with any of our facilities and we'll get it sorted out right away.

Everyone was very friendly - the grounds a facilities were clean and well kept. We stayed in the Teepee which was nice, but in my opinion waaaay over priced

Very friendly staff, restrooms were kept clean. We made the mistake and staying Friday night when people who have worked all week and ready to unwind. Not good when getting up at 3 am and driving 1400 miles home...

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the last night- please call the managers number on your map if guests are disruptive after quiet hours and we will deal with the situation. Glad the rest of your stay was good!

Beautiful location. Clean, orderly, family friendly. Friendly, helpful staff. You won't go hungry, you will not be in need of something to do, or be required to do anything you do not wish. I've used the group campsites and most recently the teepee.

We have traveled for 30 years and this is the cleanest, scenic, and friendly Koa ever. Hosts and workers go beyond what is expected.

This KOA is extremely convenient because we have family in the area. The only thing we don't like about the area is the sand and the tracking of the sand into the trailer by the children and grandchildren. Maybe having some concrete pads for some of the sights. Tough/impossible to get rid of the sand. Overall, a very nice place to stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Pads are difficult to place in an older campground as we have buried utilities that are prone to break and are not well marked.

Amazing views and great accommodations for my family of 6.

Great location, nice setting, friendly staff. They encourage saving water, yet showerheads are gushers. Could easily be replaced with low flow heads. Some Kabins could use a major facelift. Not consistent with usual KOA standards. Wifi mostly useless. Still love this KOA though.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We'll look at the shower heads! Wifi (and internet service) in the area in our peak season has been a problem.

Wonderful setting overlooked by breath taking 14ers. Clean. Great breakfast. Friendly folks. The new bathroom-shower combinations are over the top nice. Good water pressure. Warm /hot water. Landscaping was well maintained...maybe remove more growth in playground. Rec room nice and well used! Great place!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks- we'll look at the growth in the playground!
