As always, we found it to be clean, quiet and a big plus - level parking sites for our travel trailer. Nice and friendly office staff.

This was the first and last time that I would stay at a KOA. The campsites were crammed together are poorly marked. There were no comfortable places to put your tent. The camp sites in the "rustic" area were not cared for. There seems to be no noise policy for after 10pm, no drive policy, our neighbor drove to and from the bathroom all night long.

I favorite spot in the area

KOA could do nothing to improve my recent stay. Gail, one of the camp owners bent over backwards to ensure my complete satisfaction, including twice moving me to a better spot to park in. I have stayed at several KOAs in the past 10 years and the Ellensburg one is second to none.

Great campground! Really enjoyed our stay.

Th Ellensburg KOA is always superb. The grounds and facilities are always top-notch. We have stayed at this campground dozens of times and will continue to do so. Gail, Gary and the staff make this a go-to destination that is convenient to virtually any activity indoors or outside that a person would like to explore.

WE enjoyed our stay at the campgrounds. Everything was clean and the staff was super. Will definitely plan on staying again.

This was a stop over stay for us. We would not do more than a few days here. Just because there wasn't a lot to do at the camp ground for the cost. Very clean! Staff was excellent. Pool was clean.

The park is very clean and kept up. The store has good basic food and the river near by is a great fishing spot.
Jul 16, 2015
Not much green grass but the riverside site we had was nice with shade.

The young ladies in the office were pleasant and fun to deal with! Especially Cassie, always smiling, and always helped us out with directions. Love that this is on the River, will stay there anytime we pass through.

Jul 14, 2015
The stay was great but the roads are not paved in the campground and a lot of dust gets kicked up when people drive by or if the wind kicks up. otherwise great location too.
Jul 14, 2015
Third time is a charm! Well actually, ALL 3 times were wonderful! This staff far exceeds any other campground that we have ever stayed in! Not to mention, pool, grounds and facilities are maintained wonderfully! Only suggestion...more pool chairs! Keep up the beautiful work!

Nice park, friendly people. The dog park was a bit of a distance off and then when you get there it is dismal at best.
Jul 13, 2015
We always enjoy our time at this KOA. Just wish it weren't so windy in Ellensburg!

registration was very confused and I was told much incorrect information about reward points. office were very short.
Jul 13, 2015
Enjoyed our stay next to the river. Thanks!
Jul 13, 2015
We camped in a tent by the river, which we requested that area. But there were several spots open by the river for a tent. They put us right by the overpass and the traffic noise was ridiculous. They had warned us about it, but I think they could have put us someplace else so we weren't directly under that overpass since there were some open spots. It was clean and the people were very nice.
Jul 13, 2015
Other than some noisy neighbors in the tent area, this campground was fine. It's small, there's not many trees and the tent sites are pretty basic (more basic than you'd hope for at $30 a night), but it was convenient for my trip so I was satisfied

The staff at KOA Ellensburg, Washington has been very accommodating and most importantly friendly.
Jul 13, 2015
I alwyas love staying at KOA. Bathrooms always clean, camp store has all the essentials, and great friendly service. Ellensburg KOA is no exception. It was a great place to take my two month old on her first camping trip.
Jul 13, 2015
The people were friendly and the park was very clean. Next time, we'll try and get a back-in by the river instead of being right by the freeway. The wi-fi was not very strong and I'm a business traveller as well as RV Camping.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have a fast, dedicated DSL line to serve our campers. The business at our park has increased dramatically this season. Unfortunately, we have no control over how many campers are on the internet at any given time. We know it makes it hard for business campers. Our apologies to you folks.

The Ellensburg KOA's best quality is its convenience. The location right off I-90 is perfect. The facilities are OK. The restrooms are tidy but have a lingering odor. The one staff member I interacted with was snappy, but I won't judge their while staff based on that.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the heads up on the bathroom issue. We were short staffed in housekeeping during an exceptionally hot weather period. It doesn't take much for bathrooms to get smelly when they are heavily used in hot weather. Our apologies to our guests. We will do better going forward.

People partying after quite hours keeping us awake till 2 am in the tenting area

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have a security guard on duty weekend nights. Unfortunately, guests who come back to the campground from concerts at the Gorge are wound up and in a party frame of mind. Our security guard more than likely retired for the evening thinking he had the campground "put to bed" for the night.

Very friendly and efficient staff, had my vehicle tags recorded before I even got out. Easy to maneuver a big rig around, restrooms very clean, wifi very good.
