Staff was friendly and accomidating. Showers were clean and the water was hot. After I went to the site we choose for me, I saw one I liked better. Quick trip to the office and it was mine. I'm sure I'll stay there again.

pool not open. Too many cars next to my site (rules not enforced) made it hard to exit.

The pump for our pool filtration system failed/went out late Sunday afternoon 8/14. Gary got on the internet and ordered a new pump from Amazon. It was delivered the next Wednesday morning. He had it installed and the pool reopened by 4pm. My husband is THE BEST!

Sites were too close together and it was noisy.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our KOA was built in the late 1960's before big rigs with slide outs. We have road noise as we are located on the corner of the I-90 on/off ramp and Thorp Hwy. We have this posted on our website. We have a beautiful park!!

Sitting by the river watching a fly fishermen and watching the birds was very enjoyable. Very clean and well taken care of.

It was a little pricey but good overall

Quiet cool camp ground, enjoyed our one night stay

This was our 3rd time back, unfortunately we probably won't be going again. The first day there the pool broke down in 95' heat with 2 kids begging to swim, second morning the women's showers broke too, now really disappointed and lastly to top things off, the office girl was rude and said when I complained that we could leave and she would refund us the one night! Really! wont stay again!

Unfortunately the pump in the pool failed Sunday, 8/14. On Monday morning, the shower drain in our women's main bathroom was clogged (lots of long hair that weekend. We had to close and snake it. Guest showered in our satellite restroom. Refund offered for inconvenience. Not meant to be offensive.

Nice layout, a bit dusty, clean bathrooms. The pool is nice but very busy.

Previous person not out of site at almout 2:00. Had to get him out. Very very noisy. Very very tight spaces. Would not return.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The guest in this space the night before paid for a late check out. Unfortunately, when this new guest checked in, he arrived earlier in the day. Sometimes this happens as we have no control over when people arrive. This guest had a very large motorhome & towing. We were not a good fit for his rig.

Stopped at this KOA for a one night stay. Enjoyed the river front sites and pool. Only draw back was the staff wasn't friendly.
Aug 15, 2016
A great stay! Lots of kids having fun but the quite time works! This is our third stay. We will be back.
Aug 15, 2016
Clean level sites, clean restrooms with free showers that have good water pressure. Pool was clean and inviting. The owners are lovely and a great resource of information. The place was full, children riding bikes, fishermen fishing and lots of people visiting. Quest followed the quiet hours well this slept very well. It was a short drive into town for great food and Sunday farmers market.
Aug 15, 2016
A great location, right on the river. Friendly, courteous staff and a clean campground. Overall one of the best camping experiences of our 3 month journey across our great country.
Aug 15, 2016
Really nice campground with lots of activities for kids. Sites on river are beautiful. There is some highway noise but we stayed for a week and were never bothered by it. Would stay again.
Aug 15, 2016
Everything was as expected. Friendly, clean and relaxing.
Aug 15, 2016
Cleancampground staff is very friendly and helpful
Aug 15, 2016
every staff member we encountered was very helpful and friendly. We were so comfortable there we forgot to lock our door at nights! If our travels bring back to Ellensburg, you will again be part of our travel plans. Thank you!
Aug 15, 2016
Called on Monday for same week reservation and received great follow up and they were able to accommodate us. Have stayed at this KOA many times and will keep coming back.
Aug 15, 2016
We had a great stay. Very handy for our needs. Vry nice neighbors and the road noise, though real, was not very distracting.
Aug 15, 2016
due to the really hot weather and no weekend activate and my wife being bitten by a dog near our trailer could not give you a real high rating

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It is usually in the 90's here in Ellensburg in August. We have lots of activities in the local area for our guests to participate in. We aren't sure what happened with the dog biting incident here. Our guidelines state all pets must be on a leash when outside their owner's vehicles.
Aug 15, 2016
Unexpected to be welcomed with a big yawn by check-in staff, but owner Gail was very friendly and did a couple of nice little things that made our stay more comfortable and enjoyable.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry for the unconventional greeting. We have had an extremely busy summer. Our Front Desk Staff have been working overtime.
Aug 15, 2016
Staff was incredibly helpful and friendly, thank you. The restrooms are clean and well stocked, grounds are clean and well maintained. I think the spaces are just a little too close together, but shady, and easy to get in and out of (pull through).

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our park can be tight on a busy, sold out weekend in the summer. We are grateful for our guests and appreciate your business!

Stay away from space 44

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Site 44 is one of our most popular sites . . .
Aug 14, 2016
Clean & safe camping for families.
Aug 14, 2016
I would employ the office staff. they truly know what customer service is.
Aug 14, 2016
A great KOA. Clean facilities, nice camp store with ice, even nicer people to help you with whatever you need.
Aug 14, 2016
OVer crowded. Roads too arrow for big rigs. OFfice personnel clueless. trees obstructing roadways with low branches. NO attempt to control obnoxious children. A blot on KOAs reputation.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our campground was built in the late 1960's before big rigs with slideouts. We have beautiful, mature shade trees in our park which most of our guests appreciate during the summer when our temperatures are in the 90's and above. Unfortunately, our park was not a good fit for these folks.
Aug 14, 2016
It's like park in the higway. I can't understand why KOA have this campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have road noise in our park due to our close proximity to I-90 & Thorp Hwy. We advise guests about this when they call in or make internet reservations. We give people options to cancel if this is an issue for them. We suggest ear plugs and/or running fans in RVs to create white noise to help.
Aug 13, 2016
Overall it was good. We enjoy the pet runs. We find the sites at the KOAs we have stayed at the last number of nights are too tight to be enjoyable. Trip over other people waterhoses just too tight of spaces.
Aug 12, 2016
Very accommodating All was great. Thanks.
Aug 12, 2016
Clean, convenient ffor kids...Happy staff!
Aug 12, 2016
Love it! Very clean and comfortable!
Aug 12, 2016
Great site right on the river. Super clean restroom.
Aug 12, 2016
Had a great motorcycle ride down hw97 from the Canadian Rockies down to WA. Ellensburg was the perfect place to stop for the night, great campground!!! Only suggestion I would have is to have a wash basin sink outside the remote restrooms towash dishes. This is a road I want to do again and will definitively stay at the Ellensburg KOA

We plan on adding an outdoor dishwashing station for next season. Thank you for your comments

Overall this was a pretty good camp but my husband said the showers reminded him of his days in the military. All the showers were drained by the same open trough.
Aug 11, 2016
Very nice property staff was extremely helpful, sites are very nice and level, much hiking trails nearby, playground and Facilities were excellent.
Aug 11, 2016
honestly the location is a joke especially for tents. It'under a highway with constant road noise and trucks waking you up in the middle of the nights.The site for tents looks like a Parking lot and people are almost on top of you. No privacy. The river is inaccessible and behind trees. The bathroom and the campgrounds are kept clean but only the RV side looks decent for a stay. I don't recommend.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This guest was from out of state. She made an internet reservation for the same day she arrived and we were unable to contact her by phone to advise about road noise. We are on the corner of I-90 and Thorp Hwy. We try to be proactive about contacting guests regarding our tent site conditions.

Came for "Jazz In The Valley" jazz festival and everything was fine as usual. We have stayed here for the last 2 or 3 years for the Jazz weekend and will be back next year.
Aug 10, 2016
Great place to spend a night. Clean restroom and shower. Security at night. River next to it. Wish could have stayed more nights. Minor road noise but tolerable.
