One night stop over, but we were treated as full time quests. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming!!

Camp was clean & the staff friendly. WIFI was non-existant but this was one KOA that was upfront about it. I sent my emails & made calls before arriving a BIG thank you for that! I arrived just before their season was to end so no Chuck wagon steaks. Can't place my finger on it but traveling alone the camp felt too desolate. Would not stay here again unless they were in full season.

We stayed at this KOA in March and knew it to be a friendly, quiet park. So on our way to Texas in April spent our first night on the road there. Easy on and off the highway.

We expected wifi-only available in a building or outside (this is Arizona!). The place needs an update.


We do have wifi available inside the clubhouse, laundry, and the steak house. Wifi is also available outside in the pool area, the k-9 kamp, and the hotspot booth behind the clubhouse. We would like to have it available to your site and are working toward that. Thanks for your comment.

My 11 year old daughter and I (single mom) stayed in our tent at this KOA Kampground...our second year in a row. We both love it...we feel safe and secure, the grounds are well kept and beautiful, the pool area is great, the on-site restaurant has yummy food, and all the folks that work there (and stay there) are super friendly. Looking forward to staying there again next spring break!

We stayed here on our way to Mesa and purposely planned our trip back so we could stay again. The steaks in the restaurant were excellent and we especially liked the fenced dog play area. We will definitely return on our next trip through. Everyone there was friendly and accommodating. Our favorite KOA, so far.


Thank you so much. Come back soon.

ALL the staff was so friendly and helpful. We rented the site trailer and knowing we were on the way they had the refrigerator and air conditioning on so everything was ready for us. You MUST eat at Frankie's Steakhouse - YUM. We will definitely return.


Thank you so much. Please come back soon

Very clean, great service, friendly folks and the Chuck Wagon served food that was well worth the stop in for dinner. The Elvis impersonator was a great! touch

This was a night stop on a road trip from Texas to California. We arrived late, no reservation, did a night check-in and were on the road the next morning. The staff handled the night check-in with no problems, the facilities were clean, and the stay was restful.

Sloppy people.. Dumpy grounds. Extremely loud traffic all night long. Yuk!


Lazy Days KOA might be a better fit for you.

Nice small park. Some folks would complain about the train noise, but Some dogs across the street from the Park was what kept me awake. The staff was absolutely wonderful and friendly! The Frankie's Chuckwagon was really great, food, service and cooked to perfection, especially the Filet of beef and the fist fry! Will be back again!

The campground is very nice, and we especially loved the doggie play area since we have a young puppy who needs to run and play. Everything about the place was nicely kept and the staff was super. We would definitely go back.

handy stop to avoid rush hour phoenix, great little cafe. nice people...

Can't wait for the owner's rebuttal on this review. Nonetheless, I'm going to be honest. Very noisy from freeway traffic and trains. Woke up all night long. Also, the 50 amp pull-thru's sewer was so far to the rear of the space, we had to unhook our car to use the sewer. Newer coach. Haven't experienced that problem before. Last, the park's too far from anything. Yes, we are VIP KOA lovers!! ;-)


You were in a very nice 'long' pull through we use for 40' motor coaches towing that have no problem. Noise comes with the interstate. We do our best to make your stay Great. We are so sorry your were not happy with our KOA.
