I was g rest except I could not find a water faucet that turned on!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

All water except for the main building has been blown out for winterizing and you should have been told this, so I'm sorry this was not communicated properly to you. In fact, please allow me to better communicate this through this response - ALL GUESTS: OUR CAMPGROUND HAS BEEN WINTERIZED AND ONLY THE MAIN BUILDING AND FULL HOOKUP, SEWER SITES HAVE WATER AVAILABLE AT THE SITE UNTIL MARCH OF 2018

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.

We stopped because the signs outside advertised HOT showers. I can assure you this had to be the COLDEST shower ever. I'm very disappointed considering we are approaching colder season.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am so very sorry about the cold shower. This is not acceptable and we have "fixed" the valve that was the culprit and are genuinely sorry about this experience.

We just drove in and we hoped to grab a site for the night. The staff were very friendly and accommodated us very well. Only complaint is the coffee was luke warm in the morning.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Luke-warm coffee noted and will remind the staff about checking and keeping fresh/hot - thanks.

Thanks Chuck! We appreciate you staying with us!

We usually don't stay in campgrounds so it is hard to say how our stay was. Everything was good, we liked our spot on the river, and it was clean. We were there for a family reunion and it was nice to have the building you provided for our meal. We enjoyed our weekend very much.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We hope you & the whole family reunite again, here, for years to come!

Check in and out was easy. Campground and bathrooms were nice and clean. May need to trim back some trees/hedges behind the family sites.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Maintenance is truly a 24/7 task and we will get right on it ;)

We have stayed here for several years on Labor Day weekend. We are always treated with kindness and respect. We enjoy our stay very much. Would highly recommend this place.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Recommendations are truly the best "review" - THANK YOU!

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.

Love, love, love this campground! couldn't be any more kid-friendly- we enjoy every minute of our stays here.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We LOVE it too and couldn't have purchased a better one, so thanks and hope to see you soon!

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.

Very nice location. The only problem was the noise from the highway.

We really did like this campground! The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is I feel like they closed everything really early. Everything was closed by 8:00. Most people don't go to bed until after 9 or even 10. My kids would've loved to play in the game room until bed time. Just my two cents. Everything was great otherwise!

Hello, I stayed down in space T-24. Between the road noise and the people who partied until 5:00 a.m. I had enough. Sorry you community has lots of nice things. Super clean bathrooms and showers, well maintained yards and pool. I just need sleep at the end of the day.
Aug 10, 2017
Everything was as expected it would. The owner even called me and left a message warning me about the road noise. That ended up being not too bad, it was the other campers that did not know how to follow quiet hours. My only other concern was how close our neighbor set up his tent to ours (literally less than 1 foot), but that wasn't the campground's fault.

Bathroom could be cleaner

We were told we could be by the river (with highway noise) or not by the river in a quieter area. We chose the latter and yet were assigned a tent space not on the river but still right by the highway and heard traffic noise all night. There was also no shade whatsoever.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have road noise here at Ellensburg KOA. We are located on the corner of the I-90 on/off ramp and Thorp Hwy. Tents campers are more affected by this because they have no RV to lessen the impact. We disclose this on our web site. We also call guests who make internet reservations for tents to advise them about the noise. We do as much as we can to make our guests aware of these conditions.

The campground was very dirty and very small sites. We were told none was next to us under the bridge and they were. Bathrooms, discusting! Showers cold and never drained, so gross. Campground extremely noisy, campers up from 3:30-5:30. Cars driving all over, all night. We didn't sleep a wink! Will never stay here again. Our girls were scared a car was going to hit them at night in their tent.
Jul 28, 2017
Everything I asked about they said no. They close down everything at 8 p.m. what are people to do after that? Kids will try to do something & most likely get into trouble. That's not what you'd want is it? Think about this!!!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our office and camp store is open from 8am-8pm daily. We have to close the pool and game room when the store closes for security reasons. Parents should plan activities for their children to do after hours and make sure they are supervised.

Porta potties were not cleaned. Campsite had not been cleaned prior to our stay (paper and trash).
Jul 25, 2017
I misplaced my car keys and the KOA staff were so kind. They helped transport our gear to our tent site from our car and were so kind to let us stay parked there until my keys were brought to me.
Jul 24, 2017
Extremely loud for tent campers from the highways, other campers, security patrol, trains, planes, etc. Tent sites should be on the opposite side of the grounds. Staff were nice. Bathrooms nice and fairly clean. Security did not stop camp with wood fire during fire ban.
Jul 24, 2017
Tightly packed in and noisy with traffic. Good for a quick stop in the middle of nowhere but not great for the all-around quiet camping experience.
Jul 23, 2017
Nice. They could work on the tent sites where we stayed T24. The view is a gravel parking lot, with busy road on the other side. Trees? Still, we like your brand and the folks we're very friendly, and we enjoyed our stay with you.

Great staff and clean property. I'm already planning my next trip.

Clean, friendly staff, lots of activities for the kids. A little windy during our stay but it helped with the heat. Definitely will be back soon!
Jul 17, 2017
The campground is very well maintained and the facilities are all very clean! The only thing I would suggest is maybe planting more trees on the backside of the property, beyond the underpass, to allow for more shade during the day. Other than that, our stay was extremely enjoyable. Thank you!

was told I would be emailed a receipt which I have not received
Jul 10, 2017
I probably went to this campground with the wrong expectations, but I can't imagine a worse setting. Drunk campers only yards away, noisy highway literally right over our heads. We left about 5 minutes after arriving, we were so disappointed. Awful
Jul 09, 2017
We were just a quick overnight stay but would stay again! Nice setting, staff very helpful!
Jul 06, 2017
We stay with friends yearly. It is family friendly and great amenities.
