This is the 2nd worse KOA in 11 years of travel. There is much deferred maintenance. The trees untrimmed in years, be careful they will scratch you when you pull in, and scratch you at exit and knock thinks off your top; particularly from the big rig section. Sites are stacked on top of each other and park is not well kept. There are many pot holes and washboards. There are at least 6 units of Irish Rovers (Gypsies) and all their kids with extended stays, so lock your doors. The old section, smaller units is just OK. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Motorhome.

Was overpriced for the amenities. We have a big rig, and were assigned a site that was unacceptable for our rig. No one in office when we arrived at 1 pm. Then staff showed up and took us to another site. Way too close together, I felt like we should whisper in our bedroom. Wanted to do a load of laundry, that was way out of reason for price. $2 per load with rusty brown water and washers. We didn't use the water in our rig because of that either, so really was too over priced. Couldn't pull through and leave because of tree limbs and tight turn and the end of the row. We backed out and used the next road back. They had plenty of sites and I couldn't see a reason for us to be on top of each other in that one row. Will not stay here again, even for a stop over. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Motorhome.

I cannot believe anybody who wasn't a family member of the owner would give this place a "10". First, the pros: level, clean, easy to get to from I-80. The cons: $37+ for this place is way over priced. We have stayed at nicer places every night for the last ten days, every one of them was cheaper ($25-$32), and every one of them had cable TV. They only have water faucets on every other site, so I had to run the hose under the trailer to the neighboring site. 50 amp box had no breaker, but instead, had a fuse. Wasn't sure what to do, so I plugged in hot. No harm this time. There won't be a next time. Not a really bad park, just way over priced. Should be in the mid $20 range, no more. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is okay although the highway changed to a gravel road almost immediately after coming off the interstate. The actual entry into the park is very bumpy. There were potholes that necessitate going about 2 mph. I would not stay here again because I am worried about breaking an axle. The whole, no cable TV was irritating although a few local channels could be picked up. We used our satellite but couldn't get Sunday night football on NBC. The employees are friendly and told me where to find a local runza restaurant. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This was an absolutely great campground. Very easy access from the highway and very easy access to the sites. Wonderful, friendly hosts. Flat, level sites. Wi-Fi was smoking! Would certainly go back. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Motorhome.

Easy access from I-80. Nice, clean park. The facilities looked clean and inviting. We didn't order the pizza, but it looked good! It's nice to have the made to order pizza option after driving all day. Unfortunately I had meat thawed that needed to be grilled. We'll definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a quick overnight stop near the interstate. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The building facilities were clean and well maintained, although we did not use the showers. The sites were very narrow however and our pad (as were several others we noticed) rutted. It made it very difficult to level the trailer. The road conditions were marginal also. It simply appeared that not much was done to keep the actual grounds in good condition. If needing an overnight stop in the future we would try and find an alternative spot. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We also stopped on the way home from Yellowstone. Nice stop over. We called around 9pm and they kept a pull-thru site open for us when we got there at 11pm. Sites were level, clean and quiet. Wonderful Nebraska sky that night. Road in seemed OK, nothing unusual. Would stay there again if passing thru. Kids said the Wi-Fi worked fine. We were near the back of the campground, near the cornfield (looks like a good year!). We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Motorhome.

As the complainer before this said, it did have pot holes in the road going out, the pads are narrow but no more so that a number of others and our site was level. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We only stayed here one night but would stay here for an extended time. We stayed here in a Big Horn 3600RL 38' fifth wheel.

On our way home from Yellowstone, we stayed here one night. I will have to say out of all the KOA's we have stayed at, this one was the best. It's next to a Nebraska cornfield. Has a wonderful dog walk. We had pizza delivered to our site and the host were wonderful. Would stay here again. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Travel Trailer.

A good choice - near I80 but far enough away that traffic noise was not a problem. Camp hosts were friendly and efficient. Level sites with plenty of room. Would stay again. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Motorhome.

This campground is clean. The sites are so close together that we couldn't put out our awning. The pet area is very nice. We had reservations for 3 nights and ended up staying 5 nights due to weather conditions. The staff acted like it was almost a bother for us to extend our stay even though the campground was only about 30% full. We would stay here again if we were passing through, but would not make it a destination place. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

It is a nice campground, to stop along I-80. They had a great dog area. The campground was right next to a corn field. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Good overnight stop along I-80. Price reflects KOA member discount for full hookup site. Sites are all level, gravel. On a Friday evening in late August, it was less than half full. Earlier in the month they said they were packed -- before school started. Would stay here again if in the area. We indulged in the all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast, and it was pretty good for $5. They make pizza in the office and will deliver to your site. The folks who make breakfast also make a dinner in the evening (not sure what days ). Tonight it's Swedish meatballs and chicken fried steak. Pretty ambitious stuff for a small KOA. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Motorhome.
