We were far from a bathroom, and had to hop in the car and drive there every time our children had to go so they wouldn't have an accident. Also, the playground is very out of date. Otherwise, the campground worked for our needs.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do agree it is quite a ways from the tent location to the nearest bathroom and we, as new owners, are looking into what we can do in the future. Thanks for your candid comments.

Très bien Le terrain, c'est à dire notre site de camping, était un peu petit, mais la vue sur la rivière magnifique

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That site is a bit on the small side, but we agree, the view there of that magnificent Yakima river is worth it!

Very nice campground with nice people running it. However, we were assured when we booked last September that our friend's campsite could be near ours. It turned out not to be true.. We were at one end of the row and she was at the opposite end. I understand their problem with those returning guests wanting their same campsites as previous years, BUT we should have been told when we booked.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Agreed, you should have been told this when booked and we are sorry you weren't.

Enjoyed our second stay at the Ellensburg KOA very much. We feel safe leaving our things at the campground while we explore during the day. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The grounds and facilities are well kept. We love that we can ride our bicycles to the fair and rodeo and avoid parking difficulties. And we've already made our reservations for next year!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Can't wait to see you next Labor Day & Rodeo, but please come visit us again before this too ;)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The staff allowed us to borrow a screwdriver of theirs, when we did not have one. Unfortunately, the game room was closed early (around 5/6pm). Over all, a nice quietly location next to a fast flowing river.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Not sure why we closed the game-room early and I have addressed this with all staff. On a side-note, come visit us again about 10 days or so after Labor Day and they really cut back the volume of the Yakima River and the speed is much, much slower.

The campground well had broken so no water available but they called that morning and asked if we wanted to cancel. We chose to go stay, and received a $10.00 discount. Pool was closed so disappointed granddaughter but we had a very pretty site on the river.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for staying with us during our underground water break and sorry the pool was closed due to this and it was fixed right after you left, so come on back next Memorial Day on and we'll be a full go with the pool too.

The folks were very hospitable. Compared to three other KOA's we stayed at from August 19th though August 28Th, the Ellensburg KOA could us some new landscaping and blacktop would be nice. All and all a great stay!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We absolutely agree about the black-top and hopefully can give this a face-lift for next season.

Restrooms were clean but the price was too high

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you feel that way about our pricing, but thanks for staying & the comments.
Aug 30, 2017
The stay was very good the kids had a blast. You where having water issues and I had rented a cabin so that was a bit of an issue for us. I have stayed in the tent sites in the past and that is always good, my first time renting a deluxe cabin. But over all a good stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That underground water-break was fixed right after, so sorry it happened during your visit, so come on back when you can, thanks.
Aug 30, 2017
We had a very nice time at the KOA. The only drawback on the trip was when the camp had an issue with a water leak. They did refund some monies to us. That was beyond their control and we understood that. We will stay there again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Fixed right after your stay so come on back soon!

Had a nice long wide pull through with a shade tree. Level gravel pad with grass and picnic table. Well run campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you & hope you come on back soon.

We got to billings late but they had upgraded us to a deluxe patio site. It was lovely. This property is beautiful, shaded and very well maintained. We would have stayed longer if we had the time. We only stayed one night. The staff and amenities were excellent. Also neat that this is the first KOA!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Mistook us for the Billings, MT KOA, but glad the experience was superb.

This is a nice campsite. The employees are very helpful. Many trees and wide spaces. We camped with a travel trailer. The only negative is the freeway noise
Aug 29, 2017
Bathrooms were clean and well situated but need to have at least one more. Easy to access. Nice location.
Aug 29, 2017
Nice place, friendly people, easy to find
Aug 29, 2017
Checked in, no water, no pool, no showers, no bathrooms. Said they sent me an email to cancel, I never got one. Had family meeting us there no other place to go. They offered nothing to help the situation. Went to store and bought 7 gallons of water, had porta potties there and suffered the night out. Next day water came on thank god! Last night there the automatic sprinklers came in soaked all!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had an underground water pipe break over a busy weekend. We tried to contact this guest to cancel. The phone number on the reservation was their home phone and they were away on vacation. We emailed them but they said they never received it. This was a difficult situation for all of us.
Aug 29, 2017
We stayed one night to be close to the Gorge Ampitheater. This are could be a great camp location with a bit more privacy. I would love to see some more trees planted between the campsites.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We LOVE trees and look constantly at how and where we can add more. We do have lot's of big, old growth trees to enjoy though and will continue to add more.
Aug 28, 2017
We had a great time at this KOA. The grounds were well maintained, the restrooms were clean and nice, showers appeared to work well (though I didn't use them). Glad we had a deluxe tent site with shade as it was pretty warm out, the shade was worth the extra money for the tent site. The pools were nice and the kids loved them. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Aug 28, 2017
This was such a fun time for the kids. They had so much to do. The only negative was that you are right next to the freeway so be prepared for LOTS of semi truck/car noise. Tip: book as close to the river it's not as noisy.

Signage for place all but lacking. Sites very close together. The river is nice; but the traffic noise drowns it out.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We, as new owners do agree we need more/better signage & have already started to make changes about this. Thank you.
Aug 27, 2017
Arrived later than expected so didn't have time to enjoy all the facilities or even the river site but that was our fault. Office provided coupon for restaurant in town that we did enjoy immensely. Not five stars as washrooms a bit dated. Will be back!
Aug 27, 2017
The staff were very accommodating to my special request.
Aug 27, 2017
My favorite KOA, great staff

Right next to the river, lots of shade trees, friendly staff, very clean and easy off / easy on to I-90. Can't get much better than that!!
Aug 26, 2017
It was wonderful. The poeple are so friendly and kind

They were quick to let us know that the water would not be available and gave us options. Thanks.
Aug 24, 2017
Had two spots in the camp. Trip was to visit our daughters new place in Selah and to celebrate my parents 50th. Also enjoyed the eclipse. The camp had no water due to a broken pipe but was a great trip anyway and the staff was very nice. We will be back.

They called us and made very clear they had a well issue and there would not be any water and gave us the option to cancel. We're self-contained and so it wasn't an issue. We stayed mostly to get an early start the next day. There's some freeway noise but the easy on easy off freeway access is the trade-off. The grounds are pleasant the river is right there.
Aug 23, 2017
I was warned in advance the water was shut off. Given a discount stayed anyway. Nice, clean, kids enjoyed even with out the pool. Will definitely be back to camp by the river let the kids play enjoy the town of ellensburg.
Aug 23, 2017
Staff helpful - park nice with trees & large sites - no water on this visit is just a temporary blip (repairs on the way) - move that freeway noise & it'd be perfect!
Aug 23, 2017
Nothing worked well.To close to the freeway. Noise level was high.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry, but I wish you would have let us know what actually didn't work. Regardless, thanks for staying.
Aug 22, 2017
I wish all camp grounds were ran by this group of folks very pleased with way they handle them selves very clean sites We will be back again and again The Muellers
Aug 22, 2017
I always have a great time with this KOA, however there was the matter of not being able to shower because on the second day of my stay, a water pump or something like that went out. I meant to stop at the office and see if there might be some compensation for that?
Aug 22, 2017
We arrived on Friday and were able to check in around noon, which went smoothly. The facilities were nice, but sharing common service connections with an adjoining trailer with a slide out was a bit tight. Unfortunately, they were working on their well and the community restrooms were closed, but they maintained water service to our site. Campground staff made regular tours of the site.
