Our Power kept shutting off repeatedly from the time we arrived to the time we left. Also, there is a statewide mandate for masks at this time and no one was wearing one in the office. This KOA is part of a National Company. Should be following statewide mandates and regulations.

Our site was VERY unlevel. We pulled in, got hooked up and when my husband went to plug in the electric, he got zapped by the electrical box. Owner came by and told us it was the whole row having issues due to old lines and that we needed to turn off our A/C to let the lines cool down...in the middle of summer is not the time to ask that. It needs some major updates to be in KOA compliance.

Love staying here. It is quite and peaceful but very close to areas we like to attend.

Not really big rig friendly with some of the trees. We ended up scratching our brand new camper.

Hot and the campground electric main breaker kept going off leaving us without power. Luckily a storm came through and cooled things down and the breaker stopped popping. Nice campground. A bit crowded and noisy. Next to freeway noise as well.

Nice stopping point. Close to highway, level sites, friendly staff.

The KOA site says the campsites include cable tv but that didn’t happen since they didn’t have a cable box for me. They said they’d bring one out to me if one became available but didnt hold my breath. Go to the KOA in Townsend.

Only spent the night: unable to experience the campground. Welcoming staff was very pleasant and enjoyable to talk with.

This is not ideal for tent camping. Also the pool is green

Everything was good except the noise from I40. Loved all the trees. And the employees were very nice.

Staff was friendly. Apparently work is ongoing in this campground. No cable boxes available, site very low on one side and we faced a large electrical breaker box that had a box fan strapped to it with bungie cords! We had to park way over to the passenger side of the site in order to get level, and our awning was within inches of the box and fan. I'd give this place a year, and then try it again

Everything was great and the staff was excellent. The campgrounds were well maintained. Easy access in and out for our 44 ft rig.

Nice place.

Only thing we didn't appreciate was that there was no tv reception. They said they didn't have any cable boxes. We had been camping in the mountains where we knew we wouldn't have reception so were anxious to see news again, and never thought a KOA wouldn't make that possible. We consider that poor management. We thought KOA should do better. Charge a refundable deposit fee.

They were awesome! Beautiful place and allowed another site to make our stay even better for our problem dog! Thanks for the great stay!

NIce park with friendly staff. Note you are close to I-40 so you will hear the Interstate truck traffic but while that's a distraction it also makes it very convenient to get around.

Staff was friendly but unfortunately they were not able to provide cable box for the cable service

Excellent service!

The owners and staff were very pleasant and accommodating but the bathrooms weren’t the best and the sites were on top of each other so couldn’t even open a window due to people were camping right out side of it

The campground was clean. Our lot was gravel and easy to access, a pull through which always makes things easier. We had a family reunion and were spread out a bit. They accommodated us by changing our sites to keep us close together. We had a great time and look forward to going back.

Check in was very good. Arrived at our assigned spot, which was very good. Hooked up to electric & proceeded with the rest of settling in. It was 94 degrees....no power at our site. After about an hour of trouble shooting we were moved to another site. It was a very sweating experience. Apparently an electrician was working at another site with the power off but had not notified the person who sho

I stayed in a tent site but mine didnt have water directly ay site like others. Electric outlets are big rv type which dont make sense since tents dont have RVs. Area and people seemed a bit dirty. Lots of road noise.

Very accommodating and friendly. Smaller campground but very clean.

Nice facility, clean showers and restrooms. Staff is fantastic and friendly. Pool was down for a few days but hey....things break but they got it fixed as fast as the pool company could.

We loved our recent family reunion to Newport KOA. It was clean and our site was easy access. Some family members stayed in cabins and some on camp sites. They accommodated us by rearranging our sites to keep us together. The office staff was friendly and everything you need is at the camp store. Lots of places to see in the area as well. We're looking forward to another family reunion there again.
