Tent Reviews

Jul 03, 2015
Check in was easy which is important to me on long motorcycle rides. The lawn was great for setting up tent and there was some shade trees. I will stop there again next time I'm on a ride on hwy 50 through Nevada.

Came in late at night to sleep and continue driving the next day. Check in was easy and fast. Bathrooms were clean. Grass area for tents was flat (major plus). Over all, very nice stay.

Good

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.

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.

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

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!

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!

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).

This was my 2nd stay at this location. The tent camping area is a nice, grassy area, with trees, a deluxe outdoor camp kitchen (with hot water and an electric stove). The restrooms are very clean with hot showers. Enjoyed the free pancake breakfast. Even watched Netflix in tent via free WIFI.

Nice facilities and tent sites. My only beef is one that seems to be common at many KOA sites. The WiFi didn't work. It wasn't the end of the world, as I didn't need it, but it is a big inconvenience these days. I'd rather have Internet than TV any day.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us! We were very happy to see you, and we do hope to see you again. We are sorry to hear the Wi-Fi wasn't working the day you visited. Wind, strong weather, and movie streaming can slow down the bandwidth of the Wi-Fi. Most days it is excellent. Thank you for camping!

You know you've found a good KOA when their tent sites are well-watered lush grass out in the desert. That was nicer than sleeping on my own lawn. Clean bathrooms, kind managers who were respectful and full of genuine hospitality. This place gets an A+++

This KOA is a blessing on Hwy 50! Extremely clean, the hosts were amazingly friendly, in fact one of them convinced me to have a tent site w/o electricity because it is more private and not on the main driveway. The tent sites has gorgerous green grass, a common sink area with an outlet for all of our electronics that need charging. Bathroom clean!!!! Worth the drive on hwy 50 vs I-80!!!!

As an avid tent camper, I take notice of grass. This KOA has exceptional grass for its tent sites even in the desert! It actually serves to be an extra cushion between you and the ground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you! The soft, green grass creates such a pleasant atmosphere in the high desert, and we're so glad you were here to enjoy it. Hope the rest of your camping adventure is wonderful!

Our stay was not pleasant!!! We were placed next to a very large group. They were nice people, and even gave us some food; however, they got very drunk, and raucous which continued until just before 1am. We went to bed around 10pm, and told them that we were getting up at 4am to continue our road trip. This may not be KOA's fault, but a staff member should be asking people to be quiet at 10pm.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We appreciate your time spent at the KOA of Ely and we are sorry to hear about your interrupted evening. The Ely KOA has a 24-hour phone-service for when staff assistance is needed. We hope your road trip is fantastic and please stay with us again, so you can see how great the KOA of Ely truly is.
