Tent Reviews

Booked 2 nights for tent camping. We were basically in a hole. No view, dried up weeds. Nice people, though who ran it. Left after 1 night. The camper sites looked nice.

Such a wonderful place! Ran across this campground on accident and now it will be my go to campground for canyon ferry lake. The staff and locals were so helpful and welcoming - I did not want to leave

Just passing through for one night. Nice location. Quiet. Lovely woman at the office in the morning. And she opens early too. Thanks for the great cup of coffee.

This campground is geared to fishermen and I wasn't there to fish.

After a few reservation changes these guys are amazing and so accommodating. We love the location and facilities.

Awesome, clean bathrooms and showers. We were glad to see a playground. The tent sites were a little small and there are only four so it’s not somewhere we could meet and camp with friends or family.

It was a very clean and quiet campground, and the location was beautiful.

Stayed in a tent, sites are not well defined. Campground was clean, good store, and friendly staff. Lake is within walking distance for those without disabilities.

Bad weather. Permanent residents.

The bathrooms and showers (free) were very nice, but the campsites were far too small! If we had a larger tent, we wouldn't have fit next to our neighbors.

We had a great experience at this KOA. The lady at the desk was friendly and helpful. The bathrooms were clean and showers had plenty of room and hot water. They have a nice little camp store too.

Good location run by good people. It’s right next to Canyon Ferry, and is close to a number of hiking trails and picnic destinations. Owners saw it was going to rain and upgraded my tent site to a cabin for no extra charge. Would absolutely recommend staying here

There were clean bathrooms but very little views.

The best part was the huge area for each RV. Most of the area are seasonal people, that make you feel uncomfortable. They are older and we had grand kids who loved to play and had been told to calm down and be quiet. There is not much to do they have a small store that is very over priced, the have a small playground. Compared to other KOAs this is over priced.

Only bad thing was that we where told that there was water at each tent site and there wasn't

Enjoyed the camp....staff were friendly and helpful...with the algae problem in the big Canyon Ferry reservoir, they should consider an outdoor pool to give guests a swimming option because right now the reservoir is not a great swimming experience.

Nice quiet campground, very friendly hosts. Loved the free coffee in the morning too!

We had a great short stay. The only downside was the high wind that day.

The tent sites are tiny. The bathrooms need renovating. Usually the hosts ride around and check on things, never saw one employee outside the office. Not much to do. The staff was very pleasant.

Checked-in late but site assignment was prepared. Loved the grass tent site. Would be better to plant trees for shade from hot summer sun. Clean restrooms & shower. Dish washing sink was likewise clean. Very good KOA operations.

Extremely hospitable people!

We were disappointed to arrive at our tent campsite to find dog poop all over. Thankfully the office staff let us move to the campsite next to us because the other site didn’t get cleaned up until three hours later. The women’s bathroom also smelled awful, like an animal had died in it. I kept telling my husband how bad it was and he was surprised because he said the men’s was fine.

Very friendly staff and good location for an overnight tented stay.

Nice quiet place on a beautiful lake. The bathroom floors need a thorough cleaning and toilet seats need replacing. It was very difficult to drive stakes in the tent ground.

Both the staff and the other campers were friendly and helpful.

Nice campground, excellent customer service, excellent bathrooms. Tent sites could use some more trees or something for shade.

The staff were great and the site very clean but not a great tenting area. Wouldn't recommend for tenting but for RVs probably not a bad spot. Great showers!

I've stayed here before. On my last stay, the grass in the tent area was green and well kept. This stay, it was dry and weedy. I think more attention needs to be paid to the tent area.

stay was good till I watch three german shepard dogs not on leases get in a fight with two tiny dogs on leashes, lots of noise fromall the dogs owners yelling and owners must always have pets on a leash and not use the tent camping area as the dogs potty place, don't walk the dogs in the camp grounds but only in the dog park area I hate dog poop in tent camping area the rest good

Convenient place to stay if you want to go boating or fishing on Canyon ferry lake. Friendly, helpful staff.

Nice campground. Nice people. Close to lake and off the main road enough so no traffic noise from it.

We were on a long distance road trip checking out colleges for our daughter. WE had driven over 500 miles after a long day, so we were a little weary when we pulled into your camp site. We found the map with our tent site on it and a note saying that it was forecasted to be pretty windy and we were welcome to stay in cabin 6. We were elated. It was the best nights rest we had all week!! Thank you

Small tent spaces, no shade or wind breaks, dirty bathrooms, staff never checked in on sites, overall worst experience at any koa I've ever stayed at, and i have been to several

Was a very nice site but we thought we were going to get blown away. We have come to notice that most KOA do not think to much about where they are putting tenters. If they are alongside a road we seem to always be tenting along the road and having to listen to traffic all night

Everything thing you want in a camping environment.
