We had just one night here and wish we could have stayed longer. We were impressed with our pitch; large and in a lovely location with a patio and furniture. We used the fire pit for a BBQ and had a lovely relaxing evening. The pool area was great, the best of any KOA we have been to; we had...

Stayed here a few nights during a family gathering. Enjoyed the property. Campsites are well maintained. The amenities are nice. If there was one thing that seemed a little off and a possible con, it would be the schedule of the zip lines and the things the kids were interested in doing. The schedule seemed to be limited on when...

The only reason I gave it four stars is that the facility itself gets a little hot certain times a year. They are also not what you would exactly call cheep... But all in all we had a great time my whole family came. My brother and sister-in-law with their small child hung out with us at the river or...

We stayed two nights here and really enjoyed it. Its in a beautiful canyon with many hiking trails and great scenery. There are many mature trees offering shade in the campgrounds. The pool area was the highlight. Its natural looking and has plenty of lounges and tables/chairs. Lots of stuff for kids as well. The bathrooms could really use some...

Wonderful organic alternative to the typical RV "parking lots." Attentive staff takes care of every need and insures noise curfews. Lots of activities for kids. Very fun zip line. Nice pool with "beach" entry is perfect for toddlers and kids. Only reason for 4 stars is that some of the activities have very limited opening hours or not at all...

We rented a 2 bedroom cabin for ourselves, daughter, son in law and 4 little kids. The cabin was immaculate and charming but smaller than the pictures online. We were climbing over each other. Price $530 for 2 days, not including parking for second car. Views were beautiful and family friendly. The they charged $14 for two little boys to...

Great setting amongst hills and trees. Peacocks everywhere; fun to watch. Mostly dirt and/ or gravel. We did not have kids with us; but this park definitely caters to kids with tons of kids' activities; even their small store is all about kids stuff (toys, candy, pop, etc.). No spa, big pool though.

The KOA is situated in a beautiful setting. What is not beautiful are the disgusting showers and bathrooms. We tent camped over the 4th of July weekend. I realize this may be a busy time for camping. I understand that it might be hard to make facilites pristine. But the level of grossness was to a point that I really...

I'm conflicted by this KOA for a few reasons. I've stayed in this location probably 50+ times and even more when it was a county park prior to becoming a KOA. It is a great location. Beautiful views and secluded. It's actually secluded enough from main population centers that the night sky is amazingly bright with stars. However: despite what...

“We had glamping tent #3, it was close to the bathroom, which is nice if you have to get up and go in the middle of the night. It is also right above where the parking spot was so loading and unloading the car was a breeze.”
