We stayed two nights here and really enjoyed it. Its in a beautiful canyon with many hiking trails and great scenery. There are many mature trees offering shade in the campgrounds. The pool area was the highlight. Its natural looking and has plenty of lounges and tables/chairs. Lots of stuff for kids as well. The bathrooms could really use some... More

Wonderful organic alternative to the typical RV "parking lots." Attentive staff takes care of every need and insures noise curfews. Lots of activities for kids. Very fun zip line. Nice pool with "beach" entry is perfect for toddlers and kids. Only reason for 4 stars is that some of the activities have very limited opening hours or not at all... More

We rented a 2 bedroom cabin for ourselves, daughter, son in law and 4 little kids. The cabin was immaculate and charming but smaller than the pictures online. We were climbing over each other. Price $530 for 2 days, not including parking for second car. Views were beautiful and family friendly. The they charged $14 for two little boys to... More

Great setting amongst hills and trees. Peacocks everywhere; fun to watch. Mostly dirt and/ or gravel. We did not have kids with us; but this park definitely caters to kids with tons of kids' activities; even their small store is all about kids stuff (toys, candy, pop, etc.). No spa, big pool though.

The KOA is situated in a beautiful setting. What is not beautiful are the disgusting showers and bathrooms. We tent camped over the 4th of July weekend. I realize this may be a busy time for camping. I understand that it might be hard to make facilites pristine. But the level of grossness was to a point that I really... More

I'm conflicted by this KOA for a few reasons. I've stayed in this location probably 50+ times and even more when it was a county park prior to becoming a KOA. It is a great location. Beautiful views and secluded. It's actually secluded enough from main population centers that the night sky is amazingly bright with stars. However: despite what... More

The gals at the front desk where very nice and inform us with a map of the area, and the fun stuff to do. A little disappoint in our site, but again it was Sat and the park was full. Neighbors were very insensitive to the rules of the park, but again wasn't KOA fault. But the kicker was a... More

Initially, we were concerned about our size. We have a 40 ft 5th wheel pulled by a full crew size pickup. This campground is laid out with just the right amount of space for big rigs to get in & out. Just take it slow & you can stay here. The entire place is built on a hillside but divided... More

My first camping trip with my husband and two girls. Upon checking in, an employee named Danny was very nice and helpful. He went above and beyond. Our cabin was clean and comfortable. The scenery was amazing. A very relaxing place. All the staff members were very helpful and friendly. My youngest daughter, who is 11, said I should give... More
