People were showering their dogs under the showers!?

Website said that it was "lakeside" it was not. It was quite a walk from the camp ground. The water pressure in the shower was nonexistent. I would do better standing in the rain! the trash smelled horrible. The mini golf was fun but needed maintenance.Cashier was grumpy. good store though.

I see a lot of long timers staying there. It doesn't feel like a KOA. I see it used to be a private campground.

Way to many big dogs wandering and intimidating guests small traveling companions and craping on guests lawns.

Could not wait to leave! Peoples laundry hanging, unsightly trailers (obviously living there) unsupervised children racing around on dirt bikes, loud music, could go on forever! No indication they even knew we were there, sure we could have pulled in and parked just like Wal-Mart! Sites are poorly marked, couldn't tell which fire pit was ours, picnic table on road! Would NEVER recommend to anyone!

We had a very positive experience and would stay there again.

Great people in the office/store and at the Flamingo Café. Campground needs more trees and showers, other then that it was very nice.

It was a disappointment in many ways. Very few trees, small 3x5 plots of grass, which was mostly dead, at each site. The rest of the grounds was made up of gravel and weeds growing everywhere. The bathrooms/showers were outdated. One shower in particular was small and dark. Not impressed with diner on they were out of their special onion rings. The lake was almost too far to walk.

stated they had a game room for the kids which they did not have. Office closes early

Staff helpful, lake great for the dogs to run. Facilities good.

no trees to speak of. no pool. no cable hookup, equivalant to staying in a gravel parking lt

The front desk staff is GREAT. They finely cleaned the Men's showers. They were REALLY bad. The only problem we have with this park is the wireless internet. It is SLOW at night, faster in the morning but always inconsistent. We travel a lot and rely on the internet for our business. It is a determining factor as to where we stay. Why do you limit comments to 400 characters, really????

Very helpful personnel. Sites well maintained, shoers and restrooms were clean.

Other than the wind it was OK. Nice wide areas for ones camper and boat...I liked that. I also liked the general store and closeness to the lake. If I could recommend one thing it would be more trees for shade and privacy.

Park was very plain, our site was very hard to level our 5th wheel! Would not stay there again!

Unable to get on WiFi. You are able to sign onto net work, but it never comes up to put in code so you can't use the internet. I didn't try to get online before the office closed so was unable to get help from them.

Honestly it is very expensive compared to many campgrounds we've stayed at before. Need power at the fish cleaning area.
Aug 24, 2012
Great site. Good fishing nearby.

We arrived with a flat tire as a result of the road works south of Townsend. The owners were very helpfull with changing the tire and very friendly all round. We were happy and thankful.

Canyon Ferry KOA is fantastic. From start to finish you have all you could ever want in a location and personnel starting with the owner. We will be back!!!

Rocky, barren year round campground. Nothing attractive making you want to sit outside. Not good wireless service, no cable TV.
Aug 13, 2012
reservation not done as we made by interne.obligation to change sites twice

Very bad reception, not ready for my friend and me. Sites planifications are not for yours RV The staff dont know the sites occupations for the night. This was very ridiculous. One good thing, the women at the desk do his possible.

This is our second year spending a month at this KOA and we were dissapointed this time. The weeds were overgrowing the sites and while they were trimmed and sprayed after a few weeks they were still quite prominent when we left. Everything else was great and the staff and management were wonderful as usual.

Given a few more years and plenty of water, the trees will produce some much needed shade. The campground was clean and quiet. Thanks!

Primarily park is for fishermen and many sites are rented on a periodic basis to boaters and fishermen. Very little in the way of shade, but the campers and owner were very friendly and helpful.

The staff was helpful and accomidating. It's a perfect location. The bathrooms and camp area were clean and well cared for. We enjoyed the welcoming camp dogs - that added to the atmosphere of our experience, which was warm and friendly.

Condition and performance of showers are some of the worst we have seen in our camping stays. Our water service at our lot ran yellow colored and smelled bad. The lots need general maintenance and care - weeding, clean-up from prior visits by dog owners, etc. Wi-fi very disappointing but some improvement since our last stay.
