Awesome KOA! The only downside was the need for bathrooms in the cabin area.

The campground was very nice with tons of amenities for families. A little crowded and very busy if u stay near the fun zone areas. The camping cabin beds were terrible- need new mattresses! Like sleeping on wood with a plastic cover.👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻

Our family first came to Palmer Gulch in 1982,again in 1997 and 2000. Now it is extremely overcrowded and not the pleasant quiet place we first experienced. Service ok waitresses at Ponderosa seemed overwhelmed at breakfast time. Disappointed Papa's Pancake tent leaving. Our family members are elderly. Probably won't choose KOA again. Cabins too cramped-too hilly and rough for elderly.
