RV Reviews

Oct 19, 2014
Late October gave us cooler temperatures and an uncrowded camp. The hostess provided helpful and interesting info about Vernal and nearby attractions. There's highway noise and one evening we heard a lot of cows bellowing in the distance. Didn't keep us awake. If I had a tent in cold weather, I'd ask about pitching in an RV spot on the northeast corner to get more morning sunshine.

Quiet and the grassy areas were wonderful for our dog. All except the mens room was clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This is hunting season and our hunters are in and out of the men's room at all hours. Even though we check the restrooms several times each day and clean during the designated time, it only takes one set of hunters to well-use a bathroom. I'm glad to hear the rest of your stay with us was great.

Thanks Bob and Gail for the wonderful hospitality and the beautiful campground. Also the trout were delicious. Thanks Bob for helping with our trailers electrical problem. Great KOA to stay at to see all the area has to offer.

The bathrooms needed some work. So much of the plumbing in Utah is substandard. A lot of the material used should be chalked so that water does not seep behind and cause mold and mildew. The bathrooms are the most important feature for me.

Easy access to sights and street

We were located quite a distance from the restrooms. The lots were very close together.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our water/electric sites only are the furthest from the restroom facilities, however that distance is only 100 yards. If being adjacent to the restrooms is a priority for you, I suggest that you request a site nearer to the facilities at check-in. The charge would have been $2.00.

Staff very friendly and helpful. Nice campground; gravel roads and sites are good. Facility is neat and clean. One downside is that the RV park is next to a trailer park and the road to the trailer park goes through the campground. It wasn't a problem except for the occasional noisy vehicle. I am sure they would have moved us if we asked but it was only a two day stay.

I underestimated this place. It is very nice, and we will stay there again

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the positive feedback. It is so nice to be pleasantly surprised when traveling and we look forward to your return.

Way too expensive. Nice location. The playground equipment needs updating - I don't think it would meet safety standards in most states. The facilities that aren't great for families.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry that you found our campground lacking. This year's project was upgrading and enlarging our sites. Next year the playground is on our agenda. However, we are inspected and our playground does meet state safety standards. We would never endanger children.

Enjoyed our 2 day stay. Cannot say enough about Tom and Judy - their hospitality, attention to detail and their friendly approach.
Sep 12, 2014
Good location. Clean, attractive campground. Good, reasonably priced firewood. They're working the sites to improve them but they're really not bad.

Very friendly, helpful. we were well pleased.

There is only a small complaint. The grass at our sight needed to be cut, there is a sprinkler head that sticks up and you could just barely see it, unsafe.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the heads up on the sprinkler. The grass has been cut, but we've been so busy that our regular schedule for mowing has been difficult to maintain. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope that you visit us again.

We really enjoyed Vernal and all it has to offer in the surrounding area, and the campground facilities were quite nice, but the action of one employee yelling at my wife for brushing our short haired dog outside (she is brushed every day so no big clumps of hair). I thought KOA was pet friendly. We would never stay here again, and will spread the word to camping friends to avoid the Vernal KOA.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I apologize for the rudeness of our staff to your wife and can assure you that her behavior has been addressed. We do not tolerate conduct such as hers at all. We are a pet-friendly, people-friendly campground and that staff person has been let go. She was let go before I received your comments.

The park was clean, the folks were friendly, and the town of Vernal is beautiful. We would highly recommend this park, especially for those wanting to visit Flaming Gorge

Beautiful park. Easy access. Big rig friendly. Fantastic dog run. Friendly and helpful staff.

This could be a nice KOA if it was better kept up. Who ever designed the spaces really needed some help! Things are not where they normally are for RV hook ups nor where they should be. Concrete patio pad, water, ele, sewer, picnic table, rocked area, dirt area - all goofy. When we were there, one day, there were 3 cop cars there to get some loud folks out of there.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am sorry you had difficulty with our site hook-ups. Our new sites were designed by the facilities department of KOA corporate. They were placed where the hookups for most RV's would be. We did have diffulculty with a camper who had to be removed by the police, rather than leave at our request.

We live in Vernal and needed to stay at KOA for a couple of weeks while our house was being completed. It was a very positive and enjoyable experience. Plenty for kids to keep busy. Everyone treated us very well and we felt welcome. Enjoyed the pancake breakfast mornings!
Aug 25, 2014
Obviously well-managed. Great spot from which to tour Dinosaur National Monument.

Always nice to stay at, but BBQ's need to be cleaned after each use and through traffic on road to mobile homes is a concern.
Aug 22, 2014
It is a beautiful campground. Wish it didn't rain so we could enjoy the patio with grass, BBQ. fire ring, patio table and chairs. Loved it! Will return next spring when we visit our daughter.

First time here. Loved it. It is one of the best of KOA.
Aug 19, 2014
Very close to Dinosaur N.M. Vernal is a nice town to stay at
Aug 19, 2014
Upon check-in, staff was very helpful explaining about the park and local attractions in the community. The park is very clean. The pool was well kept but the water was cold. Not having a jacuzzi keeps this park from 5 stars.

Dogs need grass to pee at their site. I don't want to take my dogs for a walk every time to pee! Dog=grass Pool freezing
Aug 17, 2014
Sites were clean and well maintained. Bathroom/showers were clean though outdated. Small, but nice store with reasonable pricing. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Aug 17, 2014
Great folks and very nice facility!
