Bathroom restroom could have been a little more clean, but were equipped with hair dryer which balance that. Overall this KOA is great. Even with a tent site far away from main office we had good wifi reception. Staff is friendly.

Thank you for the information and for staying at the KOA of Ely! We are glad you were able to enjoy the Wi-Fi and the hair dryers

The Koa was very nice and clean enjoyed are stay. The drive to Leiman Cave was a little farther than we expected but beautiful. Thanks for a good beginning to our vacation.

We stayed in the lodge. Very roomy, clean and comfortable. The kids loved the lofted area for their beds.

I wasn't too happy. I showed up late at night and someone was in my reserved space.. no problem, I found another one.. I wanted to pull out a couple of hours later than the designated time due to my schedule but I was given no leniency so I ended up paying for two days and was only there for less than 24 hrs.. I know rules are rules but come on. I don't know if it will be worth joining "KOA"??

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying at the KOA of Ely! We are sorry to hear about your reserved site being filled by an after-hours camper. On weekends, we tend to completely fill the sites. When someone occupies a site late into the day-hours after the noon departure time-the site has to be paid for, or departed

The tent camping area was all grass and protected by trees in the afternoon. The only problem with the tent sites is the gravel road entering the campground is directly next to the sites. Even at 5 mph you get some dust. Overall the KOA was very nice and we would stay there again.

We really enjoyed our stay and the staff was helpful and did what they could for us. Not much for kids to do at the camp but with all the things around that really wasn't a problem. Thanks for having us.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you! We do have a playground, volleyball and basketball courts, a horseshoe ring, movies in the park every night, hiking trails, and ice creams socials on Fridays. Ely is full of activities and awesome adventures!

The campground was neat, tidy and well kept. The grass in the tent area was long enough to be soft and act as a cushion. The children's play are was adequate, but a pool would be a great addition.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for camping at the KOA of Ely and we appreciate your insight!

The wind was blowing and cooled us off-the trees shaded weary travelers. Maybe a second bath site would be useful.

We were tenting. Great campground (grass). Disadvantage is that the tent area is located aside the entrance road, which means that you're in the noise and dust of arriving/leaving vehicles the whole day.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for camping at the KOA of Ely! We are sorry for the inconvenience. The tenting with utilities is next to the entry, though we do have a more secluded tenting lawn that is primitive. We hope to see you again!

As I have stated before in previous surveys...this KOA is way overpriced! It seems like we are in a trailer park that has some RV overnight parking that they can really make some money on.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for camping at the KOA of Ely and for your return visits! The nightly rate is average for campgrounds in this area, and the KOA has many more amenities. We do offer sites for monthly tenants or long-term campers. These sites are very popular and convenient! We enjoy offering varied options

Because this was the only campground for 100 miles or so we had to stay there. No pool was a minus but it was only one night. The trash was overflowing & sticking out of the trash area all day & night. We don't have friends who would ever be in such a remote area as Hwy 50....

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying at the KOA of Ely! We appreciate your time camping with us. We empty the trash every day, but sometimes it fills up before staff arrives to empty it. Highway 50 is an amazing road that stretches from California to Maryland, also known as "The Loneliest Road in America." =)

Far exceeded our expectations. Very friendly staff, clean facilities and quiet, if not convenient, location.

thank you for having a campground with sites open (I know that part isn't really up to you though ;) ) and to make it easy for us to figure out how to rent after hours. We were exhausted after a long day of driving (75 miles of it in the wrong direction even!) and seeing the KOA sign was such a relief in the middle of nowhere. Thanks again!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying at the KOA of Ely! We were glad you were able to rest comfortably after your (extra) long journey. =) Please visit again, and we hope you have an excellent summer!

Filthy. Garbage cans overflowing and garbage bags just laying on ground because of that. Laundry room left messy by young KOA staff. Two of four washers out of order through entire weeks' stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for camping with us. Let me clarify, we empty trash every day. As trash fills quickly each night when every campsite is occupied, they might fill up before staff arrives to empty them. KOA staff was emptying the dryers of camper clothes for your convenience, to make room for your clothing.

Super nice campground with flat sites. Friendly staff and well stocked store. Beautifully situated, very scenic. No pool, but volleyball which our grandchildren enjoyed. Excellent landscaping with flowers and grassy areas.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are excited to hear your entire family had an enjoyable camping trip at the KOA of Ely! Thank you very much for visiting us.

The campground was clean, the people friendly. We used the site as a center to explore the Great Basin, Ward Charcoal Ovens, Cave Lake and downtown Ely (train station, restaurants).

Thank you so much! We're glad you had so many fun adventures

Best place in the surrounding area, although the sites need to be leveled.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying at the KOA of Ely! We appreciate the time you spent camping with us. We do our best to level the gravel sites. The campground is on a slight incline which causes some leveling to be necessary. We hope to see you again!

My favorite KOA. Staff always pleasant and facilities nice!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you so much! Your comment is very encouraging to the entire KOA of Ely staff. We hope to see you again, and we appreciate your visits to our campground!

Nice KOA but a little pricey for what you get
