Arco is indeed at the end of the world, not too far from a wierd place: Craters of the Moon! A coin machine for the tiny laundry would be very much appreciated, as well as better identification of the spots and the electric plug. We were supposed to have a tent site with electricity, but we could not find it and we did not get help from the staff. There is no better choice nearby.

Right next to old run down farm with a dog barking and horse pen that did not smell great. Host and hostess were great!

The showers were quite literally falling apart and covered in mold. A clean shower is the most important thing for me at a KOA and this was by far the worst facility I saw, which includes 3 months of camping in National and state parks, 9 KOAs, and several motels.

We Enjoyed our stay at this KOA. The waffles were great and freshly made in front of you and great tasting. Not far from Craters of the Moon. The only thing is the dog barking across from the horse pasture late at night. But wont keep us from staying there again. The staff was great and always willing to help out with whatever. They even delivered the wood to our site. Thank you again.

Nice clean site. Our only issue was the non-existent wifi that they said was working fine. Oh, and they ran out of firewood.

We reserved a tent site with electricity but were given a site without electricity. Otherwise the campground was fine.

I would really like to see this campground set up recycling bins...aluminum cans, plastic bottles, AND propane canisters. Customer service was excellent!

We checked in after hours and left before anyone was awake. The only reason I gave 4-stars is b/c the system for late check-in would allow for a reserved site to be taken by an after hours walk-in if they arrived before me. As it was, while we slept in the back of our car, another couple came in after hours and pitched a tent on our site. The KOA got double value for our site.

It's small and quiet which is nice. Nice playground. Provide pizzas if you like although we didn't purchase them. Small pool. Friendly and clean bathrooms. Works fine.

Description of Teepee was misleading, it stated "bring your own linens", this would tell us that there was beds. The teepee next to us had beds, ours did not have any beds. Before reserving at this campground, I would recommend you call to confirm the exact details.


Thank you for your review and I do apologize for any misunderstandings on the description. We have now added one log full size bed in each teepee. Thank you again

The campground is well-kept and quiet. The host was extremely nice and even made waffles in the morning! Although we didn't get a chance to go, we were also impressed that this KOA brings in National Park rangers to give talks in the evening.

It was nice and clean the young lady that checked us in was very nice. Thank you for your help.

Excellent service, great people, awesome teepee!!

Nothing too special. Bathrooms could have been updated, otherwise it was an average night of camping.
Jun 15, 2015
Very nice! Ice cream social and waffles in the morning. Camp sites clean with shade and most importantly the bathrooms/showers were absolutely spotless!

Very friendly host, clean and nice
Jun 03, 2015
Nice and pretty. Very clean with friendly staff. There is a horse pen next to the tent area with several broken down vehicles littered about in it. A privacy fence would help to block that out. We would stay there again.

I was taking a random path on my road trip, and i am glad i stopped by Arco is a cool town. The people are friendly, the breakfast was great here and the view of the close by mountains was great.

We enjoyed our stay here in Arco. A very quiet campground and the bathrooms were clean. Only wish the free waffles were available before 9. Bummer!

First KOA where you get Pizza delivery to your site. Also first KOA where you get a free breakfast. The new owners are doing a great job and it is a very clean, quiet campground. The swimming pool was very refreshing after a hot day of hiking. I look forward to stopping back in a couple of years to see this oasis near the lava park.

We only stayed one night while visiting Craters of the Moon. The tent site was grassy and flat. The restrooms and showers were well maintained. The staff was friendly and the price reasonable.
