Albany / Corvallis KOA, Albany, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $52.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here one night on our way to another destination location. This is a Journey KOA after all. It was VERY hot in the region when we were there. A generally flat park with paved to gravel roads and gravel sites. Not too old trees about provided some shade. There were camping cabins and quite a few RV sites as well as some tent areas. My honest opinion is that this is a park that could use some TLC. In the evening we tried the promoted hike through some forest area on the property. The pathway was pretty overgrown and run down with trees needing to be trimmed and numbers identifying items to see missing as well as no longer any clear indication if you're even still on the path! The creek to look at was very low and couldn't be easily gotten to with the overgrowth. The store was nicely stocked. The grand kids enjoyed the pool and playground. The biggest problem I had was the road noise from the highway just over the fence from the campground. The afternoon and evening it wasn't very bad. About 4:00 am the next morning the commuter traffic sounded like it was right outside the RV door in the RV park and was very loud. We camped at Albany / Corvallis KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

While there are things to see in the area we were "just passing through" so other than to go to the close by shopping center for some supplies, we stayed at the campground.

Rising River RV Park, Roseburg, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at space 60 a pull through. A bit hidden but watch for the signs on the highway. A very nice park, the roads are paved the sites gravel. And we were there on a very hot day. Most sites have a grass area with a picnic table. A short wooden fence separates the sites and there are lots of trees too. Our site was plenty long enough to have room for our 34 foot 5th wheel and our unhooked truck in the parking slot, but they also provided parking next to the RV if you prefer. I had read reviews stating the sites were too close, we disagree. Ours and the others nearby had very good spacing and separation. The office staff was very nice on check in. Also, even though near a main highway, the 99, there was no road noise problems at all. There is a pathway to the South Umpqua River and since we had the grand kids we HAD to see it! The view was nice and the water clear, but we wouldn't recommend swimming in it. We camped at Rising River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great place to stay especially if going to the nearby Wildlife Safari drive through wild animal park about 2-miles west, which was why we were there. Nice and quiet park. We would stay again, no problem!

Lemolo Lake / Crater Lake North KOA, Idleyld Park, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

Located about 5 miles (ca. 8 km) off the highway, (Oregon 138) on literally an old bad road that gets to a terrible dirt road in the campground itself. Although a KOA, it is not to KOA standards or expectations. The facility is pretty old and has been around many seasons but it couldn't have been a KOA very long at all. We got no campground map and the KOA signage is pretty non-existent after you turn into the campground. Trees abound and it is VERY TIGHT maneuvering around them. I would NOT recommend any of the really big rigs out there at this KOA! If we hadn't been a 5th wheel I don't think we could have made it to our site. A worker was nearby as we were trying to get safely parked, and we asked about changing to a site next to ours that would have been easier to maneuver to, but he said we couldn't as the still empty site was "reserved." However, in our two nights there, there were two different RVs in that site! The campground and all sites are all covered in fine powered silt dirt, and EVERYTHING inside and out will be covered in the stuff. The sites really need gravel to help combat that dirt and dust. As I have read in other reviews, many of the sites, like ours, have the sewer connection uphill from the RV which made dumping a bit difficult. The campground was actually pretty full and seemed to consist of mainly family groups staying there to meet. The sites are limited, and they mix up RVs and tents. While I love trees, the not well-marked loops are pretty heavily treed for RVs to drive around and through and you can see trees that have been scraped getting around by the too big or too close RVs. I can't see it staying a KOA, and we would not go there again. Our only reason for staying here was the KOA name and the proximity to Crater Lake as it was about a half hour to the North entrance. We camped at Lemolo Lake / Crater Lake North KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park, Whitehall, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed one night during our trip in July. We wouldn't have minded staying another night if we had the time. Ther are 42 sites listed, and we had an "electric" site, and there were 30 and 50 AMP plugs available. Not all sites have power and none had any water or dump, there was a dump station, and potable water was also available near there. We filled our water tank and dumped. No cost to dump if staying there. Also, no cost if staying at the campground to park at the gift store at the caverns which are 3-miles up the mountain from the campground. We were at a perimeter pull through site, and it fit our combined 49-foot overall length 5th wheel and truck with much room to spare. We were very glad to have power due to the hot weather and had our a/c going until the cooler evening. It was windy from the west until sunset when the winds died down, the mosquitoes picked up! We saw an evening Ranger talk about bats and all in attendance were eaten alive by the mosquitoes. The site, P-3, was not very level but our leveling system got the Jayco level without any problems. Although in a drought area the grounds were clean with some greenery, however, no open fires were advised. The sites are all dirt or gravel parking as are the roads through the campground. The road in, to the visitor center and caves are all paved. At the visitor center near the entrance and campground, there is parking for a few RVs but I'd say still be careful if crowded for getting stuck there and unable to turn around. At our site, we had no cell service (Verizon). A railway is across the highway from the campground and along the Jefferson River. The train was very loud as our site was a close proximity and when it came through during the middle of the night but only came through that one time. We would stay there again! We camped at Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Drive up and take a cave tour, we took a shorter and not strenuous tour for handicapped and young kids since we had the young grand kids with us. Take a light jacket as it stays in the 40s in the caves. The visitor center is worth a stop as are the gift shops at the caves. Food is available as are public restrooms. In cooler weather or early summer, there are hiking areas in the surrounding mountains. With no cell service, we could enjoy the quiet area.

Cody KOA, Cody, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $73.00
Overall Rating:

First time in 20 years we'd been there, a great place for seeing the area. A bit far to be a 'basecamp' for Yellowstone but many use it for that. The Cody area has grown considerably but is fun to explore. We were just one night on our way to West Yellowstone so didn't get time to explore too much this trip. We had a patio site, which was small but functional. Pancake breakfast in the mornings and a well stocked store/gift shop. We camped at Cody KOA in a Travel Trailer.

So much to say about the Cody area, must see attractions, in town and in the general area. The Cody Night Rodeo during the summer is a must see, the Buffalo Bill Museum is top notch and can take several days just for that! A well reviewed area I can't say much more about.

Vernal / Dinosaurland KOA, Vernal, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $67.00
Overall Rating:

Exceptionally clean and well kept, a crew was out quite often taking care of the grounds. We had a site with a very nice patio and it was well worth it. We would have no problem staying again. A really nice kids playground area, with pool and large air bouncy play area. It was hot in July, I'd go back in the spring or fall without the grandkids. Lots to see if into dinosaurs!

This is the place to stay if you are into all things dinosaur. A very nice kind of high desert area this park is not too far from the Dinosaur National Monument with the Fossil Bone Quarry and lots of trails and hikes, petroglyphs, and while there is national park camping in the monument, they have no hookups and are not accessible to long RVs. We felt this was the much better place to stay for our several day visit especially with the heat.

St. Mary / East Glacier KOA, St Mary, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $80.00
Overall Rating:

Just out of the 'town' and off a side road, this KOA can be a little tricky to find, we had to turn turn around, with 33' trailer, and it was apparent others had to also. A large facility, most sites were "OK" due to inclines and park set up. We were in a curve site in a turn so it was close to the neighbors. The BEST laundry room! lots of washers and dryers, a nice change! Everything in area is EXPENSIVE. Times of no cell service for us. We camped at St. Mary / East Glacier KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful scenery. This place is close to the East entrance to Glacier and everything in the area supports that. Explore in a tow car or truck, can't take most RVs into the park due to roads.

West Glacier KOA, West Glacier, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $116.00
Overall Rating:

We wanted to have that "one last night out" of our trip at this KOA as we'd never stayed there before. The BEST KOA we'd ever stayed at, also the most expensive campground we ever stayed at. You must take into account the area location and the site we picked, a large pull through site with a exceptional patio area. We could only stay one night but would love to, no, we WILL be going back. Tons of activities for everybody, bus type tours to Glacier available, a large playground area with sections for different ages, same with the pools. Ice Cream vendor, breakfast served, very clean and busy. I attended an evening photography talk with my daughter, really enjoyed it. Really nice way to end our vacation! And then the drive home. We camped at West Glacier KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Going, on a mid summer weekend? Take a bus tour from the KOA, or relax at the KOA and stay long enough to go during the week, less people and much nicer than driving in a slow traffic jam up the Going To The Sun Road to find no parking anyplace even at Logan Pass. Rangers were there turning cars away.
