Hello, I stayed down in space T-24. Between the road noise and the people who partied until 5:00 a.m. I had enough. Sorry you community has lots of nice things. Super clean bathrooms and showers, well maintained yards and pool. I just need sleep at the end of the day.

Everything was as expected it would. The owner even called me and left a message warning me about the road noise. That ended up being not too bad, it was the other campers that did not know how to follow quiet hours. My only other concern was how close our neighbor set up his tent to ours (literally less than 1 foot), but that wasn't the campground's fault.

We were told we could be by the river (with highway noise) or not by the river in a quieter area. We chose the latter and yet were assigned a tent space not on the river but still right by the highway and heard traffic noise all night. There was also no shade whatsoever.


We have road noise here at Ellensburg KOA. We are located on the corner of the I-90 on/off ramp and Thorp Hwy. Tents campers are more affected by this because they have no RV to lessen the impact. We disclose this on our web site. We also call guests who make internet reservations for tents to advise them about the noise. We do as much as we can to make our guests aware of these conditions.

The campground was very dirty and very small sites. We were told none was next to us under the bridge and they were. Bathrooms, discusting! Showers cold and never drained, so gross. Campground extremely noisy, campers up from 3:30-5:30. Cars driving all over, all night. We didn't sleep a wink! Will never stay here again. Our girls were scared a car was going to hit them at night in their tent.

Everything I asked about they said no. They close down everything at 8 p.m. what are people to do after that? Kids will try to do something & most likely get into trouble. That's not what you'd want is it? Think about this!!!!!


Our office and camp store is open from 8am-8pm daily. We have to close the pool and game room when the store closes for security reasons. Parents should plan activities for their children to do after hours and make sure they are supervised.

Porta potties were not cleaned. Campsite had not been cleaned prior to our stay (paper and trash).

I misplaced my car keys and the KOA staff were so kind. They helped transport our gear to our tent site from our car and were so kind to let us stay parked there until my keys were brought to me.

Extremely loud for tent campers from the highways, other campers, security patrol, trains, planes, etc. Tent sites should be on the opposite side of the grounds. Staff were nice. Bathrooms nice and fairly clean. Security did not stop camp with wood fire during fire ban.

Tightly packed in and noisy with traffic. Good for a quick stop in the middle of nowhere but not great for the all-around quiet camping experience.

Nice. They could work on the tent sites where we stayed T24. The view is a gravel parking lot, with busy road on the other side. Trees? Still, we like your brand and the folks we're very friendly, and we enjoyed our stay with you.

Clean, friendly staff, lots of activities for the kids. A little windy during our stay but it helped with the heat. Definitely will be back soon!

The campground is very well maintained and the facilities are all very clean! The only thing I would suggest is maybe planting more trees on the backside of the property, beyond the underpass, to allow for more shade during the day. Other than that, our stay was extremely enjoyable. Thank you!

was told I would be emailed a receipt which I have not received

I probably went to this campground with the wrong expectations, but I can't imagine a worse setting. Drunk campers only yards away, noisy highway literally right over our heads. We left about 5 minutes after arriving, we were so disappointed. Awful

We were just a quick overnight stay but would stay again! Nice setting, staff very helpful!

Nice tent spot in perfect location.

I'd like to start by saying the staff is great. Very helpful and easy to talk to. The only complaint I have is that the site next to us had at least 10 people in it, and they were crowding our space a bit. I'm not sure how this would be remedied being that the guest was not honest about how many people they were going to have. Other than that our time at this campground was pleasant and relaxing.

great! just wish the playground was a bit bigger

We came in late just to stay one night as we continued our travels.The staff at the office was extremely helpful and professional.The campground was full but our tent site was fine. It was an extremely windy night and hot. Many campers were lighting fires in their fire rings. I think it might have been wise to prohibit campfires for the evening and let campers know the conditions were not good.


It can be very windy at times here in Ellensburg. We do ask our guests not to have campfires when we have wind advisories and do not sell wood in the camp store on those days.

This is our second year going and we enjoyed it both years it's going to be your new family tradition every single year you guys do a great job thank you

Always clean. Very friendly. Many options for children/families.A dog had walked through our tent site while we were out and pooped all around. This was disgusting as it was difficult to step around at night as well as the next morning as we were taking down the tent and packing things away. Wish there was a no pets zone.

There was freeway noise which I was told about many times so that was not the problem with my stay. The people in the office were not friendly and when asked where the dish sink was located I was told it was closed and was told by the lady just dump it in the grass. We had to bikers next to us which drove through our site and almost ran my kid over. Old run down

The only problem was the noise from the highway, not the interstate, which was expected.

The campground was FULL! Probably due to many large events happening at the same time. Otherwise the people running the ground are FANTASTIC! They remembered my name without having met in person, treated me like a truly valued guest, provided clean and safe ammenities... lots of great things to do if you have time. I wish this KOA crew would give every other campground staff some pointers.

Friendly staff, lovely location. So nice to have a place to shower in the middle of our road trip!

We came late and forgot which spot was ours and guessed the best we could. We also forgot to check in as well. Jim was on duty and very nice abiut the whole thing and helped us with everything we needed. Overpass is a little close to camping site, but overall it was a nice property.

To much traffic noise all night. Good place if you have kids. Needs update. Paid for a premium tent site not much to look at. No thanks I will pass on this one


Our park is located on the corner of the I-90 on/off ramp and Thorp Hwy. We do have road noise in our park. We disclose this our our website so folks will read about it when they are making their online reservations. We also call internet tent reservations to advise about the noise.

KOA's provide a consistent experience with all the convinces that help out a motorcycle camper!

It was our first time taking our kids camping. There was fun activities for them close to our campsite and the area was clean.

I've been coming to this campground since I was a little girl and I'm glad I can now bring my family here to make some great camping memories!
