I've been reading the complainers talk about the noise and then laugh when I see those who complain the loudest are 'camping' in an RV. Seriously?? Sour grapes people. I've stayed at this KOA a handful of times as it is a great stopping point between my home in Denver and my parents' home in Dallas. I make the drive... More

We have stayed at lots of KOA's and this one is nothing special. You are in the middle of a field in between a military airport and a train track. Even though the place was half empty, the owners still managed to put everyone right together side by side and the spots are small. We had considered staying in an... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We do our best to space out our guests whenever possible but our ability to do that depends on what types of sites are rented. Often times our guests request all 50 amp sites and those are next to each other which is probably what happened during your recent... More

This KOA is located in an industrial area near the airport (not just regular planes but military jets) and you pass 3 sexually oriented businesses before getting there. It was a clean campground but there seems to be quite a few long term campers. There was a lot of in and out traffic (trucks and cars) through the night (we... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. Our campground has been here quite awhile and unfortunately we cannot control who builds next door to us. That being said, we feel our neighborhood is very safe and can't remember another guest who has stated otherwise so we do sincerely apologize if you felt this way. If you... More

Staff are very friendly. Dog park is wonderful. Bathrooms are spotless. A bit noisy with the trains and planes. Husband is an airplane lover, so he loves it. No grass to be had, just dirt. Internet keeps disconnecting all the time making it unusable. Glad we're here only 2 nights!

Clean campground. Not quiet, but part of the experience. Time for gravel, as the water stands in the streets. Help is always nice. No views, just enjoy what is in your camper and the great doggy playground.

Very polite and helpful staff. The grounds are very clean and they a nice area for dogs. Good play area for the children. If just passing through for one night, you won't have to unhook. Will stop here again.

This was an overnight stop for us - we did like it here apart from the constant sounds of the trains blowing their horns.. wholly molly it was non stop!! We had a very disrupted sleep that night - but overall it was great, good clean facilities. The lady in the store didn't seem to want to smile no matter... More

Quality of the campground is ok, the staff is wonderful and helps you with questions and tips about interesting state parks nearby, restaurants. There is only one but, and that is that the surrounding is very noisy. There is a test center of military helicopters (? not sure what exactly it was), that also runs on Saturday, there is a...

This KOA is located right in the middle of a regional airport, a train station and a truck stop. LOUD train, plane and truck noises kept us up all night long, even over the air conditioning in the RV. We got no sleep at all that night. I did not give this place a "terrible" rating only because the facilities... More
