RV Reviews

Aug 08, 2014
Our space was roomy but could have been greatly improved with (1) more gravel in the drive and parking to reduce dirt/dust (2) shade trees. The dog run area was nicer than most. The owners seem to be making efforts toward improvements.

Great pool! Nice, clean laundry facilities. Very friendly and helpful staff. We had a nice stay.

The staff is helpful and friendly but the site was bad. My neighbors slide out was overhanging my picnic table!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We try to limit RVs with slides to our newer wider sights to prevent this from happening! We sincerely apologize for this oversight. We have reminded staff to check for slideouts when guests register at the campground.

Newer spots had no shade, so we asked for a shady spot and the staff was very rude to switch us. There was always a long line in the store with only one clerk. Pool was nice, bathrooms were clean, store was very cute.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This camper was moved immediately upon learning that the RV was 25', not 40'. Camper admitted misrepresenting their size to get a larger site. We apologize for the wait to change sites. We hope that you may choose to visit us again & that you will have a better experience.

An excellent site, extremely well-situated to both the Flaming Gorge and Dinosaur Nat'l Park areas. The staff, led by Kate, is helpful, and the facilities are very good. Vernal is a nice & totally equipped town. A good place to be all around.

Breakfast was wonderful

The KOA was definitely the best campground in Vernal. It was close to town too. The grounds are nice with fun activities. The sites are a bit close together and the showers are not very clean. Also, while I was doing laundry one morning, two young girls who were the cleaning crew, and I mean teenagers, came and started sweeping dirt at my feet. When I said let me move, they laughed.

We have met with our cleaning staff and shared your comments. Thank you for bringing this to our attention and I can assure you that this will not happen again.

We were not too thrilled when the reservation system told us that our rig would not fit into available spots. When we got to Vernal, there were many open spots that were next to us. Maybe this can be fixed.

Clean friendly and grass for the puppy.

Very bad sewer odor all night at this KOA. Gave us a headache. Our site was fine and the people were friendly.

Friendly staff, Play ground needs some repair but otherwise very nice campground. will stay again.

Had been a little worried about the bathrooms, but found it was just the proximity to the pool. It was cleaned thoroughly that night.

We really enjoy this campground. They have spaced the spots out since our last visit and that was a great improvement. The pool is terrific and we didn't use it, but they have a great kids play area. Nice staff and well stocked store. We really appreciated the ice prices as several places (other KOA's) we stayed at had ridiculous prices for a small bag of ice! :( Very nice spot!

The bathrooms need to be updated, but the people were very nice. We had a good stay.

Excellent place to stay when visiting the Dinosaur Monument.

We are always pleased to find clean, safe space at KOA. We got in late and the kids didn't have much time to swim-I wish the pool had stayed open a little later!

Nice and quiet place to stay if you plan on going to Dinosaur Land.

Very Friendly and nice well kept facility.

Internet service TERRIBLE. And I am very offended/upset that you do not recycle! If all of the koas are like this,I will not go to anotherKOA and will not renew my koa card.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We recently upgraded our internet service to avoid slw connections. We are looking into beginning a recycling program with the independent recycler in town.

This KOA overall was about a 6.5. I lowered the rating a bit based on the lack of "friendly" staff and the material condition of the playground.
Jul 19, 2014
Very clean! We had a hole as soon as we stepped out of our motor home, my husband informed the front office the next morning and it was taken care of. Definitely will stay here again.

Nice KOA, nice people very friendly.

Narrow spots, playground could be better.

The staff at the desk was friendly. I liked the fact the grass was watered. There was a smell of sewer gas & the bathrooms were mediocre. The pool was nice. The KOA in Central City sets the standard for bathroom quality

Accommodations are very difficult with a large family. I was very pleased with the person I called at the KOA, as we discussed many options for our stay and made a plan. After arrival, however, another worker/owner was upset with our solution even though we were honest and I thought we were paying the fair, regular price. I guess we weren't really welcome; but, at least she didn't kick us out.

Reminded counter persons to view notes on the reservations. Initial impressions are very important.

Heather, an employee, was as enthusiastic as an owner should be. They have done lots of upgrades recently. Well maintained and clean bathrooms. Enjoyed our stay.

I feel that if you reserve a specific campsite, you should be able to get that site. Like a hotel, if someone else wants the campsite they should be advised that it is reserved for someone else on blank day. If they want to stay longer, they would have to move. Hotels do this all the time. I feel a KOA is no different, except I bring my own room.

Nice campground.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Site was nice and well kept. The laundry room is dirty, needs a sink. Bathrooms were nice though the handicap shower did not work or close. Men's bathroom was nice. Overall, it was a pleasant stay.
Jul 07, 2014
Staff was very nice and helpful. Camp ground recently went some upgrades which are good. Would recommend putting rock over all of the sites instead of partial. Great playground and pool area for the kids. I would definitely go back.

Nice and clean, and friendly, for sure! Well located near town. But for the price - very slow WiFi, no cable, and small (narrow) spaces. Could use more shade.

You will be glad to know that we have recently upgraded the band width on our wifi.
