“Don't be fooled...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2007

According to their website, secluded camping with picturesque mountain views and proximity to the winding Yellowstone River is what awaits travelers at the Paradise Valley KOA. Gullible as I can sometimes be, I immediately booked a one night stay online, extremely excited about spending the night in what I thought would be the perfect campsite. When my party and I arrived, however, we were less than amused at the actual condition of the property. Needless to say, the campsites are not secluded. They are actually quite close together, with hardly enough room for a decent size tent. There are no views of the mountains, to fish the river costs a whoping $25 a day per person, and with the caretaker's house smack in the middle of the campground, the place looks more like a squatter's village than a wilderness retreat. Oh, and don't forget - no fires in the summer regardless of how cold it gets at night (I can understand burn bans, but I was specifically told I could have a fire the night before when I called the desk to double check that I didn't need to bring a heater with us). And here's the best part - even though I have complained to the corporate office about the terrible conditions of this place, I have yet to have my money refunded to me for a campsite I did not use. Luckily for me, my husband firmly refused to sleep in "that dump," we quickly left and ended up spending the night at a very nice motel in town.
