Campground Reviews

Aug 13, 2013
Camped next to an overpass,:( Three camp spaces had to share one grill. Said they don't provide grills for all, but conveniently they offered to sell us grill tops for our fire pit for 12 bucks. They charged us almost 7 bucks for five pieces of firewood. They charged us 3$ per night for our other vehicle. They nickle and dime you here. Happy camping!

Our stay was great. Staff very helpful. Grounds, facilities clean, pool very nice and again, clean. Can hear traffic from I-90 but that is to be expected. It did not bother us at all. Their little store is very well stocked with items one may forget for camping. Different playgrounds for the kids. Would definitely go again.

Well kept campground right on the river.

I go there every July and August for the last 9 years. Last year rules changed I guess. They want you in your campground at all times basically. Now this year they want you in your campground by dusk. And they have a security guard that makes sure your quiet in your campground by 10 pm. The only reason I pay that much to camp is the pool for the kids and showers. We will be looking for a new place

These campers were in a Family Tent site. Price is $35 plus tax per night for up to 6 people. Quiet hours are from 10pm to 8am. We want all children in their campsites with their parents at dusk.

I wish we had more time than just one night! The showers and laundry are super clean and the staff are fabulous! Easy in and out, nice location and a great place to stay while exploring the area. We will be back!

Beautiful shady tent site 15' from scenic Yakima River. Mid-week stay uncrowded. Highway noise might bother some folks, but the spotless facilities and well-stocked store were worth it. Great for nearby fly-fishing and rafting.

Beautiful spot located right along the river with lots of trees. Very enjoyable. Will return

Great campground!!! I would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to others! Plenty of nice big trees and great rec areas for the kids. I also really like how the pull thru spots are staggered. Each site pulls in from the opposite side so that there's a nice big common area for you and your neighbour. Great if you're camping with others and great if you're a friendly person!

Our family had first trip to the Yellowstone Park from Vancouver, Canada. It's very long drive but,on our way home, we realized it was the best choice to stay at KOA Ellensburg. The new cabin was perfect to recover our tired bodies after 6 days camping outdoors at Yellowstone.

We have stayed at this KOA previously and have really enjoyed the clean grounds, clean pool, clean cabin and friendly staff! This past weekend was great, thanks to KOA Ellensburg!

Great location in the middle of the state for a family get together

We enjoyed the pool and the town of Ellensburg.Had an unscheduled trip to the ER.Staff was wonderful.
Aug 06, 2013
Big spacious lots, many shaded lots and having the river right there was interesting. Very clean.
Aug 06, 2013
The people we stayed next to were very intrusive, however the camp staff and facilities were top notch!
Aug 06, 2013
You were located where we wanted to stay, your front office staff helped us find things we needed in the area, and the park, while full, was nice and quiet and clean. Everything we hoped for.
Aug 05, 2013
Great stay! Bathrooms always clean, ditto for the campsites and grounds. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful and they enforced all campground rules---quiet time. Thanks see you next year.

First impression is everything right? Well our first impression was that the staff were super friendly and helpful at check in. Gail was extremely helpful and seemed genuinely invested in us enjoying our stay. What a nice lady! The grounds, restroom/showers and pool were clean and well maintained. Recommend NOT tent camping near the overpass/hi way. Very noisy. Overall - great campground.
Aug 05, 2013
Restrooms were kept neat and clean. Tent sites did not have grass and it was too close to the road.
Aug 05, 2013
We were on the river. Awesome sight

The "expected/normal" KOA standard has gone away. You should be ashamed to endorse the last few campgrounds we have visited. The KOA in Salt Lake city is the only KOA that I would return to or recommend.

Unfortunately we did not get any feedback in person from these campers. Was not given the opportunity to see how we could try to "Make it Great" for them.

Small but comfortable. À little bit noisy if you stay close to the Road.

Would not contact other KOA to reserve like all the others did, other than that it was friendly and clean

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We will discuss this with our new staff member to ensure they will help our campers contact other KOAs to make reservations in the future.

Tent sites very poor, up all night with road noise. There is an overpass right above the tent sites! Stay somewhere else!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Camper made internet reservation. We emailed him about potential road noise when we could not reach him on the phone number he provided in his reservation.

Staff was friendly. Clean facilities. Good layover campground (which was what we were doing). Super easy on/off freeway access.
Aug 02, 2013
Easy access and right by the river.
Aug 01, 2013
Nice stop-over spot
Aug 01, 2013
We slept under a bridge of a moderate sized road. Took away from other charms. Otherwise, the river, bathrooms and the service people we talked to were friendly. The pool look very inviting too.
Aug 01, 2013
The location was great, the sites were 50 amp, it was clean, the staff was friendly. and services were close. For me, this was almost perfect. Only issue was trees wouldn't let me use my satellite TV, but I'll take trees the KOA way anytime.

Ditto my previous posts. The crew just keeps doing the job and the place is packed--rightfully so. I have watched the change now for the several years since Gary and Gail bought in and it has just been super. You now have to book early for event weekends, CWU events, etc., like a year early!! Great for them. This is our home away from Bothell! If you haven't been there, you are missing out.
