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.

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!

Clean & safe camping for families.

I would employ the office staff. they truly know what customer service is.

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.

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.

Very accommodating All was great. Thanks.

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.

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.

Clean. Kinda noisey from the interstate. Nice staff.
Aug 09, 2016
Friendly staff, exceptionally clean, and centrally located.
Aug 09, 2016
Loved the pool and that there was a kiddie pool! Kids loved having a playground. Very clean, bathrooms were well attended to. It was nice being so close to the river. Very windy, however that is just Ellensburg! Didn't notice traffic noise at all! Had 2 month old baby with us who slept great!
Aug 09, 2016
Positive experience as usual.
Aug 08, 2016
We like to stay here because of the cleanliness, amenities, location on the river, and the friendly, caring staff.
Aug 08, 2016
very narrow sites, overbooked with too many people per site. A busy city not a quiet campground experience

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our park was built in the late 1960's before big rigs with slide outs. We have been sold out every weekend this summer. When this happens, we are cramped. Sorry folks. We love you and do the best we can with what we have.
Aug 08, 2016
They charged us 10.00 for a child which was 5.00 a night we did not have a child with us and I had my receipt emailed to me so I didn't see this till we were home. I was never refunded the money.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

When the reservation was made for this guest, it was for 2 adults and 1 child over the age of 5. When we check people in, we confirm number of adults and children on the reservation. Not sure what happened here but will call guest and refund them accordingly.
Aug 08, 2016
It appeared this would be a great campground for kids but the sites were too close to each other. Just too crowded, but I guess that means business is good. The sites by the river should really be protected with a fence to keep children safe.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

When our guests with children book river sites, we caution them about the river and ask if they are comfortable with that situation for their family. Sometimes, they relocate to other sites further away.

Pleasantly surprised about the attractiveness of the campground and the location. Parked in a 50A W&S site very close to the river, with nice shade trees. I would definitely stay here again.
Aug 07, 2016
The sites are a little close but the river made up for that. There is considerable road noise. I managed to pick the one cold shower in the block. The managers/owners were very pleasant. The front desk person talked us out of a second night with her reluctance. The park was clean, well maintained with many extras. Two playgrounds, horseshoes, store and pool. Also laundry albeit pricey,

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We were sold out this weekend with lots of tent campers attending a local concert at the Gorge Amphitheater. Bathrooms were super busy. Sorry for the cold shower. Unfortunate timing for this guest. Laundry Rates: $2.00 to Wash/$1.50 to dry for 45 minutes.
Aug 07, 2016
Nice location for an overnight stay. Close to town. Water pressure not strong, but did have showers. Love the river site even though it was not a pull thru but a pull in back in. Electrical hookups awkward to use. Staff very friendly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Most sites in our park share a service pedestal with their neighbor.
Aug 06, 2016
Great location. They are continually upgrading the facility; drip watering flowers etc.
Aug 06, 2016
have stayed several times anad have always been satisfied
Aug 06, 2016
No sewer hook up but stayed extra night because the facility and location is so nice.
Aug 06, 2016
Great campground one we will stay at many more times!
Aug 05, 2016
We enjoyed our stay here. The staff was friendly, the campground was clean
Aug 05, 2016
My Homebase KOA... A great staff already complements a great campground!
Aug 05, 2016
No social activities, No Beer stocked seemed like a moral decision applied to everyone. Staff seemed distant.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are an overnight park, not a Holiday or Resort KOA. There are a lot of activities in town and in the surrounding area. We have Visitor Guides and Maps available to guests for activities in our local area. Our camp store does not sell alcoholic beverages. Safeway and Fred Meyer are close in town.
Aug 04, 2016
Great location, clean and friendly
Aug 04, 2016
Difficult small park to maneuver a big right in. Staff very courteous and grounds well attended.
Aug 04, 2016
We often stay at the Ellensburg KOA when traveling. It's the perfect location for the last leg of our trip home. The location next to the river is lovely, the facilities are great and it's only about 3 hours to home.
Aug 03, 2016
Friendly staff. Questionable guests.
Aug 03, 2016
Great place for a stopover on our journey. Facilities were clean, spots by the river were beautiful and not too tight together. Will definitely stay again in our next adventure.

This is the worst-run campground in the USA. They wouldnt honor our reservation for a 50-amp site even when we showed them written confirmation. The 30-amp site they gave us had low voltage. I asked to be moved to an open 50-amp site, and the manager refused as it was reserved. I asked What about our reservation? She said Youre already mad, I wont make someone else mad just to satisfy you.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

These folks made their own internet reservation. They requested a 30 amp head in site. They were a 41 foot motor home towing a jeep. They needed a 50 amp site . . not a 30 amp site. We were sold out and there was no other sites available. We gave them a full refund and referred them to another park.
Aug 02, 2016
Close to freeway so a little more noisy but it was clean and sites were well designed for all types of rigs. A lot of area for tents as well. Close to town so great place to stay if you are going to the many events that go on throughout the year in Ellensburg. Will be staying here again in the future.

Except for the pitch I got all over my shoes in spot 10, it was a wonderful stay!!!
Aug 02, 2016
Stay was as promised. We have been there several times and have gone back because of the positive experience.
Aug 02, 2016
All was good with the exception of some dead branches that fell a weeping willow tree we were under.
Aug 02, 2016
We had a great site,not to crowded. As tipical for koa clean rest rooms and shower facilities. Pricey compared to national campgrounds using your senior pass.
Aug 01, 2016
VERY SMALL sites and rude staff that does not honor requests. I scheduled 4 months in advance and they messed up our reservation. They have you pull straight in and your neighbor back in so you are right next to each other. We could hear all their conversations. Then you have to share your small outside space with your other neighbor. Keep driving....there are better places to stay.
