Great stay. I had to change the details of my reservation many times, band every time I called they were always professional and accommodating. Being able to book a site on the river was great too

I love this KOA--the staff is super friendly and the grounds well maintained and clean. Really enjoyed my tent site on the river. The sites are good sized so even with "neighbors" on either side, you don't feel crowded or uncomfortable. There is a great trail back in the woods that follows the river. The bathrooms/showers are kept very very clean, which I really appreciate. I recommend this KOA!!

Wifi is a bonus to cat up while sitting in a tent in the rain.

Great check staff and facilities

What is expected from a KOA. Only complaint is the showers in the women restrooms are somewhat painful (water pressure too high for the shower head type)

Nice being able to take a shower when camping. I appreciate that you support the fly fishing community by providing space for Ellensburg Anglers and shuttle service.

Nice place, well kept, great owners, only downside is also a plus close to road.

We use the Ellensburg KOA a couple of times each year for school trips, and we have always found the place to be clean, inviting, and friendly. I would definitely recommend this KOA to others, and have actually done so on several occasions.

We were pleasantly surprised by how nice this campground is. We didn't have a long stay, but would consider KOA for future camping after this stay.

There was no hot water in their showers when you went to shower.

Nice quiet campground.

KOA did not follow through and transfer me back to my accustomed site as promised last year when a clerical error got me booted from my over 20 year spot. The new neighbors drank and talked loudly until after midnight as they used my old site only for partying not for a tent site. Staff told me due to KOA policy in spite of their error I am condemned to the less desirable spot for the next 20 year

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
Aug 09, 2015
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
Aug 08, 2015
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......


We had no report from our security there was a problem that evening.

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

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.

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.
