Mesa / Apache Junction KOA, Apache Junction, Arizona

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $56.00
Overall Rating:

We had reserved a deluxe pull-thru with propane BBQ grill. We arrived at approximately 2:30 PM and we were escorted by an employee to our site. By the time we set up our fifth wheel, we discovered some electrical problems within the RV. We went to the office and asked about hiring reliable technical help with our problem. After receiving a name, we called the technician only to find out that he was too busy to respond to our problem within the next 3 days. That evening, we experienced significant heater issues in our RV during the unusual cold evening. We decided that we did not want to spend more chilly nights in the fifth wheel without any opportunity to hire technical help, so we went to the front desk to ask the clerk if we could get a partial refund for the 3 nights we had paid or give us 2 nights at a later date in February. The clerk told me to give her specific alternate dates before we checked out of the park. When my wife returned to the office, the clerk told her that they could not give her other dates. Therefore, we lost two nights of lodging after only using one. We were upset with the clerk's answer because we had no other choices except to stay there for two more nights with out heat in our RV. We believe KOA's should consider every case on its own merit. We camped at Mesa / Apache Junction KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Elk Creek Campground (fomerly New Castle/Glenwood Springs KOA), New Castle, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

We had made reservations in January 2014 for a one night stay in August 2014. We requested a pull-thru for our 36' fifth wheel. We arrived rather late (8:30 PM) and tired after an 11 1/2 hour drive from Arizona. When we arrived, the office was closed and a set of instructions had been left for us. Our site was way too small for the size of our rig, the site was very unlevel on ungroomed dirt and the hookups were all in the wrong places requiring us to select either electric or water for the night. We selected electric so at least we would have power to the fifth wheel RV. The water hookup could not be found without the use of a flashlight; it was literally located in scrub and long meadow grass that had not been cleared in some time. I used the shower facilities to wash my hands, and when I entered the men's facilities, it was filthy with water everywhere including the sink counters, and toilet paper, paper towels, and empty toiletry containers everywhere - not a place where I would take a shower! All of this for $55.00 per night, thus not a place where we would return. Beware, the photos on Elk Creek Campground are not actual photos of the place. They are only advertisement photos of hikers and fishermen. This place is better suited for tent campers and dry camping in small rigs. We would never return here! We camped at Elk Creek Campground (fomerly New Castle/Glenwood Springs KOA) in a Fifth Wheel.

Rex Hale Campground (USFS), Rex Hale, Wyoming

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

The Rex Hale Campground is located just 16 miles east of the East Entrance to Yellowstone National Park. This campground is next to the Shoshone River, and it has 30 sites well separated from each other by natural brush and vegetation. The sites are level gravel with fire rings. There is little to no noise from the highway nearby. The camp host is very friendly and helpful and he offers free firewood for your site when you arrive. We camped here for five nights and drove to Yellowstone National Park most days and Cody, Wyoming for groceries. This campground provides a quiet, scenic, and natural experience that few other RV parks offer. The natural scenery around the park is magnificent. We would definitely sty here again. We camped at Rex Hale Campground (USFS) in a Fifth Wheel.

Fireside Resort - Jackson Hole Campground, Wilson, Wyoming

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $125.00
Overall Rating:

It was difficult to find this RV park. We had to call the clerk on duty to have her guide us via cell phone to the park. When we arrived, we noticed that the signage (Fireside Resort) does not correspond to the name of the RV park on their website. Also, the dirt road leading into the park was narrow and full of potholes making it difficult to prevent damage to the goods in our RV even at the slowest of speeds. The dirt roads in the park are narrow especially for a fifth wheel of our size (36'). The bathrooms were clean; however, they were old with peeling paint, in need of new toilet fixtures which were hard to flush, and the stalls were extremely narrow. Laundry costs were higher than what one would pay at other RV parks. This campground is not worth the high cost that is charged per night. We would not choose this RV park again. We camped at Fireside Resort - Jackson Hole Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
