Tent Reviews

The space was little small than expected and no shade. And noise level was terrible. Staff were so nice though.

We asked for tent site with shade. Our site had zero shade, had a telephone pole in the middle of it and the ground to place a tent on had deep tire tracks in it. Wouldn't have been a problem if every site had been full but this wasn't the case. There were numerous sites open still with plenty of shade that we saw.

Hostess was very accomodating. The tent site wasn't that great but everything else was fine.

I stayed in a tent almost directly under the overpass. no sleep for2 nights. I would never stay there again unless I could stay in a spot far from this area and would point this out strongly to any one thinking of staying there.it should not be used as a camping area as I heard others complaining of the same issues. It is a shame because I enjoyed the campground otherwise and the staff was great

The kids had a great time in the pool in the sun after a long day in the car. The game room was great also offering indoor activities and the TV room allowed cartoon time before hitting the road again. Tent sites were a little small but overall it was a great experience.

My friend and I went down for concert at the Gorge. Drove from BC. Easy 4 hr drive. Beautiful spot by Yakima river. Floated in river. Larry(KOA worker)staked our tent as it was blown almost into river while we were at concert. Great people!

Staff was great, easy check in and we didnt even have a reservation! Restrooms were super clean. Fun time

The pool was lovely but the close proximity to neighbors was way to close. The kids behind us were up loud and swearing til early morning. But the extreme road noise kinda drowned them out.. Sorry

Site was fine people next to us were up and loud with children until 1:00am no sleep that night. Nice staff at the desk but......

It was okay. Have camped at much nicer places for less $$ but this location is what I needed. Having the pool was nice.

Stellar! The staff was friendly, helpful, accommodating, etc. and the facilities were immaculate. Bathrooms were cleaned hourly -- beautiful setting by the river. I stayed 3 nights. Thanks!

First KOA I've ever stayed at. It is a really nice way to introduce your family to the camping lifestyle.
Jul 27, 2015
It was a little cold,cloudy windy but not so bad we will try a deferent days or month.

We really enjoyed our stay. I have a 2 and 4 year old and this was their first camping experience. They had so much fun and there was plenty for them to do between riding bikes, swimming in the the pool and playing on the swings and playground. The facilities were very clean and the staff was helpful and nice. I would definitely come back again.

Best campground I've ever stayed at. Gives you the feeling of 'real camping' while having your essentials at hand. Thank you so much!!
Jul 27, 2015
The tent area is way to cramped. Cramping not camping.
Jul 26, 2015
The amenities out weighed the road noise be a long shot. Happy campers here.
Jul 26, 2015
It was an overnighter and we both had a good nights sleep.
Jul 25, 2015
The showers and bathrooms needed more cleaning and upkeep. Told the office about the smell in the men's and the over flowing shower standing water. No action by staff

Thanks for the heads up. We do our best on the hot, busy summer weekends. Have added new housekeeping staff to keep up with the demands. Shower drain had to be snaked out, and was but probably not soon enough to suit this guest.

We stayed here because the Yakima river canyon campsites were all full. It's well kept and clean. Everyone was friendly. We didn't mind the I-90 noise at all. It wasn't really loud enough to make a difference. The tent sites are kind of small but it was ok for two people.

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.
Jul 15, 2015
Fantastic campgroup, wonderful hosts. Beautiful sites with nice clean bathrooms. Will definitely come again!!
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.

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 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.

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.

My family had a great time. The staff was extremely helpful and nice. This was our first time staying at a KOA and are looking forward to doing it again after our experience

Friendly staff. Clean nice place to stay.
Jul 02, 2015
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.

Friendly staff,very clean, nice amenities. Frustrated however with post 10 pm night arrivals..very loud while getting in and setting up.
Jun 29, 2015
Larua is the best! Amazing KOA!
Jun 29, 2015
Very nice amenities but the size of the space you get is far to small

Our campground was built in the late 1960's before big rigs with multiple slide outs. Who knew at that time the future of RVs as we know them today.

Nice tenting area.

I was treated very well. I appreciated the cleanliness of the facilities.
