Enjoyed our stay next to the river. Thanks!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Beautiful campsite by the river. Friendly staff. Campsite easy to find.

Park was well maintained and employees were great. Backed up to the Yakima river but limited access. Only negative was the noise off the freeway exit. It was pretty load at times.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Because of our location at the intersection of the I-90 on/off ramp and Thorp Hwy, we have road noise. There are semi's, construction vehicles, farm equipment, motorcycles and adults/teens who like to hot rod. We have posted these noise issues on our website so folks are aware when booking online.

The staff there were extremely helpful and nice. We weren't at the campground much as we had things to do nearby, but would come again for sure. Beautiful river views.

The park was in amazing shape and the owners went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed. We would absolutely recommend this site to anyone needing a place to camp.

The people that were working there was great, the grandkids loved the pools and taking a nice hot shower was wonderful. This was the first time for us to stay at a KOA campground and the experience was great. We'll be doing more of this in he future. Thanks The Talkington Family

We arrived on Sunday July 5th so the busy weekend was just ending. Very friendly staff greeted us. Great site along the river! We enjoyed our stay and would stay there again next time we are in Ellensburg.

My family and I have spent most all of the month of June staying here due to my Mom's death. I can not express to you the helpfulness and kindness that Gail , Natalie and the entire staff extended to us as we traveled back and forth from Spokane to attend to details and such. The facilities are wonderful, clean and very well maintained. I can not say enough wonderful things about this KOA!!!!!!!
Jul 07, 2015
Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Everything is clean and nice especially the bathrooms. We will camp KOA again. Thank you
Jul 07, 2015
Sites were mostly dead grass and dirt. Laundry was sufficient. Bathroom toilets did not flush well. While I was showering, the main water was turned off; it would not have been a problem except I had a chemical hair remover on legs and needed to rinse it off. Luckily I had jugs of water on hand in my RV.
Jul 06, 2015
Friendly Staff. Shaded RV site. Stayed July 3-5 2015. Excellent. We will be back.
Jul 06, 2015
This campground is conveniently located near the major highways but it's tucked away in a wooded area next to the river. The sites are roomy and the facility is somewhat clean. A good place to rest as you're passing through the area.
Jul 06, 2015
Wonderful spot next to the river. Our cabin was right next to the freeway, but we couldn't hear traffic at all. Extremely clean and well maintained. Great pool & kiddie pool.
Jul 06, 2015
It was a great place

TGreathe staff went out of there way to help make our stay

The facilities were very well maintained with a large effort on maintaining a green theme. A river runs next to the site making it more charming and the hosts were very friendly and helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this KOA.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. My fiance and I were at a tent site but wanted to move away from the river. They helped us right away and found a spot similar to the one we had. The pool was a nice way to cool off since there is not a lot of shade. I would definitely stay here again.
