Campground Reviews

Oct 13, 2017
We always stay at Gila Bend KOA when in the area. Now that they have this wonderful pool heated to 80 F this will be a fun place in the wintertime. They have made huge progress in updating the Campground, looking better every time we come for a visit. The staff is very nice, and our pull through was wide and extra long. We like this KOA and will visit again in the future. Thanks!

Wonderful! Beautiful park! Spacious sites, friendly staff. We were greeted as soon As we entered the gate with all the usual paperwork, then taken to our site to set up. Staff assured us that if we needed anything at all to let them know and they would be right there to answer any concerns that we had. Felt very welcomed! Would definitely stay here again!

Very nice park now and it will be even nicer on November 1, 2017 when the new facilities open.

The Gila Bend KOA is one of the best We've ever visited. Keeping ion mind where you are, the sites are wide, well maintained and attractive. But, the best part is the staff. They are cordial, professional and totally customer oriented. The person on duty when we checked in, I believe her name was Denise, was the perfect point of contact for a traveler after a long day on the road.

We needed a place to stay overnight on our trip to New Mexico and this KOA worked out perfectly. The sites are long and wide, they have a great dog run area, and everything is new. We were not able to use the pool as the area around it was still under construction but it appears that it will be a beautiful area to swim and relax when it is finished being built.

Nice clean park close to I8 with large level FHU sites. Cable and wifi worked great. We stayed one night. Denise, the park manager, is friendly and very helpful. I would stay there again.

Loved it! Hosts were exceptional.

The people at Gila Bend KOA were very nice. We arrived without a reservation and they took good care of us. We were just passing through and only stayed for the night. It was pre-season for them and a lot of work was going on within the Park. New gravel in the sites. The Swimming Pool was just getting ready to open. I thank the people at Gila Bend KOA for their hospitality!

Way too far for trash can


Yes, located at the front of the property. As we are in the middle of the Sonoran Desert, we have quite a bit of wildlife and the smell of our trash would have coyotes and foxes roaming in the park if we were to have trash cans throughout, not to mention rodents then the snakes looking for them. There is a convenient circle for your RV to drive up to the dumpster on the way out, or a nice stroll.

New park, everything was very neat and tidy. It is a very quiet park and a good stopover when traveling across Arizona! The dog park is awesome, one of the best we have experienced in our travels! There is a brand new pool, however it was not yet opened when we were there. It will be a great addition to the park.

One of the nicest KOAs going. Many, many improvements have been made to this resort. I loved it when it was Augie's and I really love it now!!
Sep 21, 2017
This was an overnight stay. The sites were long and did not have to disconnect the tow car. Also they were wide. The campground and sites were clean and recently covered with gravel to cover up the desert dirt. Very nice. Resort staff was very friendly and checked with us to ensure everything was ok.

Your office clerk, a female, didn't catch her name. She was awesome, really knows her customer service!

Great Hospitality and very friendly!!

We only stayed one night in early September. We arrived after hours but they had our packet at the outside kiosk complete with a well detailed map to our site, which was a pull through, on an end. The site was wide & gravel, level, with the utilities well located for a 5er. It had a nice patio and fire feature as it was an upgraded site. Cost was $54.80 with my KOAKard. I'd stay again.


Thank you for your 5-Star review! We are happy to hear you enjoyed our Upgraded Deluxe Patio Site #134 our PEThouse Suite that includes a private 400sqft dog run. We have 2 more deluxe site we are building right now that will be a 150' long pull-thru. Thanks again and hope to see you soon!

We were worried about the snakes and other poisoned vermin to even take our dog outside Not the parks fault the guy was really great and the park was well kept up. We just don't like snakes and especially poisonous ones. We stay at a lot of KOA parks and it's the first one we were not happy with. It's not as I said the parks fault just the vermin that are there.


We are in the Sonoran National Desert Monument, and we have to live with the indigenous reptiles that share this beautiful desert. It is our obligation to inform all our guests of any risk these reptiles may have. Luckily, during our busiest time in the winter, they are all hibernating! We are happy you were able to look out your window and see our well kept park!! Come back in the winter!

Just spent the night but will very likely to stop again passing through Gila Bend. Such friendly staff and the grounds are fantastically well kept. Highly recommend this KOA

Clean and nicely laid out. Easy in and out with a toad and a big rig and no need to disconnect. The spaces are nice and wide as are the lanes in and out of the park. It was a one night layover for us but we could see why people would spend the winter here.

Snow bird heaven Summer nightmare. However, the camp ground is very nice with lots of improvements in the works.


I think this is our first 1-Star review. Always a disappointment to be rated on the Arizona Desert summer weather, something completely out of our control. We have chosen to stay open during the summer to offer a clean, well-maintained RV Park for RV'ers to stay the night during their summer adventures. Our other option is to close for the summer like so many others in the desert.

After long day driving, needed a place to rest. Luckily this KOA was less than 5 miles away. Had late night registration and sites available. We have 35 ft class A and towing a dolly and concerned with having to unhook, but sites are huge, length and width. Didn't concern ourselves with facilities as it was just a stop over. Did use laundry, very clean. Making improvements, pool, etc.
