This is a nice looking KOA with attractive landscaping. Sites are very close and some are back to back. Loops are paved. Sites have fresh gravel. There are narrow strips of grass, sidewalks, and some trees between sites. The location is right in town in a mixed use area of residential and commercial. We visited friends only 5 miles away, so this was an ideal location. Two thirds of the park were long term sites. They are even listed on the map as long term metered sites. Everything was immaculate and attractive looking. We camped at Boise / Meridian KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed for 2 nites on our way to Santa Fe NM- had a res for 1 day and on arrival and seeing site decided to a second nite. They were able to rearrange many arrivals to get us a site for 2 days. Once set their person escorted us to site and made sure we were in properly. This RV park has a great location close to so many things by walking. People were all great employees and other guests also pleased. There are several full timers and the park is kept immaculately clean. Our RV was a B class Pleasure Way Motorhome - no tow vehicle. We camped at Boise / Meridian KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed 3 nights while visiting friends. They were able to move us to a pull thru even though when I reserved only back-in available. Really made it easier for me. Not fancy but clean and great location for us. We'll be back. We camped at Boise / Meridian KOA in a Motorhome.

Very nice KOA located in the middle of Meridian city so not next to the interstate. Park is separated into full timers and then more temporary camper areas. Sites were well laid out with easy navigation.. We were in pull through #18 with FHUs. KOA's Cable and Verizon cell service worked well. Great place for an overnighter or even longer. We camped at Boise / Meridian KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

A KOA within the city of Meridian. Give it 4 stars. Advertises WiFi. Hands out info with check-in paper work on how inadequate their WiFi is. Even has "nostreamimng" as the password. Coming to believe if the service is advertised it should be accessible, which it is not. It's a quiet average park with good access to the area. We camped at Boise / Meridian KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Overall Rating:

is a radically different kind of KOA: it's set right in downtown Meridian, an oasis in a sea of urban franchise stores, for people who like the camping lifestyle but without a hint of wilderness. Actually, they've done a good job of giving it a resort feel: Although it was mostly sunny, there were trees all around, most of them in the autumn fashions of red or gold. The campground is surrounded by a wall to hide the city bustle. Like other resort parks, they've packed the sites too tightly, but I've stayed at worse. I chose thia campground because it split my hurried drive back to Olympia into nice chunks. If I return to visit this part of Idaho for an extended period, I shall probably select one in a more rural setting. We camped at Boise / Meridian KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This park has a long term section in the "back" of the park. Unfortunately, for us anyway, the long term users have taken over the perimeter of the "short term" section. It seems like this RV Park is turning into a mobile home park. It was quiet at night went we arrived. Then someone with a motorcycle with loud pipes with no regard for quiet hours moved into a site just across from our site which was one of the perimeter sites, apparently set up for a long duration . They like to take their bike out during quiet hours. Especially after 11PM. This was very annoying and overshadowed the nicer aspects of the park. We were anxious to move on because of it. Many of the residents in the perimeter sites have multiple cars making maneuvering tricky and exasperating. Since many of the sites are long term those people are up early slamming car doors evidently scurrying off to work. This is not what we expected from a KOA. We camped at Boise / Meridian KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy access to and within the RV park. Big rig friendly. All paved roads, level sites and kept clean. The bathrooms were a bit dated, but clean. This park is in a convenient location for all shopping including a tire servicing company next door, which was helpful since we needed to get our tow vehicle tires rotated and aligned. The park is about 7 miles to the Greenbelt trail which was a good place for walking. Also, about 7 miles to downtown Boise where they have lots of good restaurants and a Trader Joes. The downside of this park are the number of people that live in the park full time. While all their sites are kept clean and uncluttered, they create a lot more traffic than the typical traveling RVer. We had a site at the entrance of the park and we had cars coming and going at all times of the night. Of course most of them pull a 5th wheel so they are noisy diesel pickup trucks coming and going at night. We camped at Boise / Meridian KOA in a Motorhome.

This park considers itself to be part of the KOA "Journey" park group which implies that it's OK for a night or two but doesn't try to claim it's a destination. With that categorization, this park is significantly nicer than many other KOA Journey parks we've encountered. The roads are all paved and there's nicely trimmed grass between the sites. The sites themselves are smooth gravel with a small "sidewalk like" patio. Each site has a picnic table. Our pull-through was plenty long enough for our 40' MH and our toad. The sites are quite narrow with no privacy between them. There are some trees around the perimeter of the park but there is little shade. Satellite TV was easy to access. Both Verizon and AT&T worked well and the data streams were very fast. As others have noted, the park is nearly full all the time and there are lots of long term residents, but all the sites we saw were quite neat. We camped at Boise / Meridian KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

This park is located in a major shopping and restaurant area. Virtually any store you want is within a mile or two. The only exception was Costco which is ~6 miles away. Traffic in the vicinity of the park is heavy during evening rush hour but the park is less that half a mile from the freeway so it isn't all that bad an experience.

We stayed here 4 nights visiting friends in Meridian. Our check-in went smoothly and I found that they had added two days to our original 2 day reservation as I requested, if someone else cancelled. It was a very busy, packed-full campground while we were there. It is a large park, and had more full-timers than I've ever seen at a KOA. Never the less, the ones I met were friendly and the sites were neat and quiet. The park wifi was too slow for me, but my Verizon MiFi signal was the fastest I've ever clocked. Our 8 pound dog visited 2 of their their really-small dog 'runs' but didn't like them. I found the grass around the office parking lot, and on the outside street, to be more to her liking. Parking for our tow vehicle (in front of, or next to our trailer) was sufficient but snug. Trees at most sites offer some shade for several hours a day. The park seemed well maintained and there were plenty of staff to be seen. We camped at Boise / Meridian KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Restaurants we loved in Meridian: Had a great Filet Mignon at Kahootz Steak and Ale House - a very informal, small bar & restaurant. Ginos Italian restaurant was excellent, and a pleasant setting. Big Daddys BBQ food was terrific - try the tasty "50-50" sandwich for lunch or dinner, or their generous pancakes for brunch. Grimaldi's Coal Brick-Oven Pizzaria served 6 of us (2 x 18 inch New York style pizzas) - excellent!

The reason for "Bad Service".... No wifi. Sure they say they have wifi however all four of our devices would not pick up a signal. I really get tired of giving these parks a pass for lack of wifi! This is part of the "service" they advertise and we pay for! We camped at Boise / Meridian KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We spent two nights here in late September. Facilities were well kept. Bathrooms were nice and in good repair. A bit tricky finding the road into the campground, and we missed it on the first pass. (Not too bad to circle the block and come back.) Wifi worked well in the clubhouse but not at the rig. Site was gravel and level. Very tight. Rig behind us was near our bumper. Quite a few long-term residents in the park. Not far from the expressway, which is always a plus when passing through. We camped at Boise / Meridian KOA in a Motorhome.
