We met Jim the caretaker first thing. He was an absolute doll. So helpful. You can tell he really loves his job and the people he meets. I will be back just to see him. We stayed on the river. This was our first trip out with the new motorhome. What a great experience. P. Nichols Redmond, WA

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I will be sure Jim reads this and we understand & appreciate how well he takes care of everyone, so thanks for reaffirming this and hope to see you next season!

Staff was very friendly and helped us with our RV. It was our maiden voyage and we knew absolutely nothing about how everything worked. Jim took the time to help us with our electrical and our furnace. He was a blessing.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We too are happy to have Jim and thanks for breaking in the new rig with us!

The staff is wonderful and the facilities are pleasant and clean. However, the location really kills it, especially for tent camping. You've got two highways and train tracks right by the campground, which means semis down-shifting, trains honking, and road noise. Also, the campground is very brightly lit all night. I slept with a blindfold and earplugs but it still wasn't the greatest night.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Understood. I-90 is our greatest asset for convenience and easy on/off, but the tent sites definitely take the brunt of the noise. Sorry & maybe we can have you back but in one of our comfy & quiet Kabins.

The new owners are great, as is the rest of their staff. Due to problems with our tow vehicle, we had to extend our stay at this campground for over a week, and the owners and staff couldn't have been more accommodating or helpful. The location next to the Yakima river more than makes up for it's proximity to the highway. Would highly recommend to all travelers.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We wish we didn't have to meet you under those circumstances, but having you stay and getting to know you was wonderful! See you & that pretty new truck next time!

Overall, the park was well maintained and facilities were very clean. Staff very friendly and welcoming. We had a buddy site with friends that needed a bit of TLC (mowing and watering grass) in the yard between the two sites.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We will get that grass mowed right away and thank you for staying.

Water pressure was a little low but overall stay was great. Thx

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for staying and yes, we do keep our water pressure regulated automatically by our well-pumps between 40-60 psi so we aren't too low or too high :)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad we were helpful and hope to see you again soon.

Thank you very much!

beautiful spots on the river but this a very congested campground. Noise level is high due to direct proximity to freeway. We had a lineup at checkin which almost led us to stick out into the freeway exit ramp. Dump station is located directly in the path of the entrance/exit to the camp

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

All true. On days like this one, when that wind is a blowin', we seem to get 10 folks at a time and that does cause congestion in our small campground. We do limit and actually turned away several rigs that day over 38' because of our old/small infrastructure, but it still caused congestion and I'm sorry that was the only impression we made on this stay.

This was our second trip in our new travel trailer and we chose Ellensburg so we could meet up with friends. Very nice staff, clean campground, and we felt secure as the staff were actively visible. We decided to buy a KOA membership and plan to use KOA campgrounds in the future. A bit disappointed when we were not able to get the 10% off of our stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It looks like you were all checked in and paid & bought the Value Kard after this on day 3, so the initial charges were already complete, but I will process the refund of $16 to your card so it will work out. Thanks for letting us know and we hope to see you soon for another 10% stay ;)

The campground was well maintained and the bathrooms were kept very clean. It was handy for our needs. The only downside is the road noise from I90.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I-90 is our 2-headed monster of providing super easy on/off, but a bit of noise too, so we understand and thank you for staying and the great comments about the grounds & bathrooms.

Right off interstate but quieter than I would have expected. Nice sites and good location along the river.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The Amazing Yakima river is surely our 2nd best asset. Right after our customers & staff :)
Oct 09, 2017
roomy spots, friendly staff, well stocked store

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Stocking what is needed & desired in our store is a daily focus, so thank you for noticing
Oct 08, 2017
Courteous people who are very helpful. Location of the campground is a plus.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Location, location, location - always a plus +

This is my Home Base Campground & I visit @ least twice a year. My last stay was for 3 nights right on the Yakima River and the wind did not blow at all. Nothing but Autumn sunshine, my dog & I had a great time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You & "dog" are welcome anytime :)

We usually always stay at this KOA when we are traveling to the west side of Washington.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Being here for folks going to and from the West side is our specialty, so keep on dropping by :)

Great facility, fantastic hosts, river setting was beautiful.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Fantastic guests too ;)

Management made extra efforts to give us a good site. One of the best we have had at a KOA. We have liked the Ellensburg KOA for years but missed the last few years on our trip. It was obvious they are taking good care of the property and campsites and have also made some improvements. Very clean

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We sure enjoyed having you back and don't wait another 2 years please!
Oct 05, 2017
The grounds are very pretty. We loved the places we could walk our dog. Althonthevtraffic was noisy during the day, the park was quiet at night. We would come back. K

Nice little park,great overnighter.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We think so too, but when we aren't busy like this and the fishing is so World-Class, maybe stay 2+ nights with us :)
Oct 03, 2017
Everyone was friendly, everything was nice and clean. we only stayed one night.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Try 2 nights next time with a full-day of world-class fishing stuffed in-between ;)
Oct 03, 2017
I would strongly recommend a central fire pit instead of a pit at every site we have been told many times about the danger of 2nd hand smoke Thank goodness their was a fire ban especially with the strong winds to blow the smoke Also the large trees need a good trim It is a lovely campground. I had peek at one of the cabins with friends in mind !

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Working on those trees right now, so thank you and see you next time.
Oct 03, 2017
Wentbfor only one night and ended up staying 3 nights! Paid the extra $3.00 and had a great spot on the river! The only con was the slots are facing each other so. NOt much privacy

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We agree on the shared pedestals - sites facing each other and will begin upgrades on the old infrastructure that will allow us some flexibility on this :)

Had a great time; 3 spaces together on River with family. How does it get better than that. Great for launching drift boat to fly fish or to wade fish. Grounds are well kept and friendly staff. Could have a better dump station, but everything else was perfect.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Hope you and the whole family come back soon - thank you.
