Not the best park I have ever stayed at, not the worst. People were friendly. Park could use some maintenance. Start with cutting the grass, trim around the utilities hook up and sewer. Cable was good. Wi- Fi was good.

We were put next to a camper running an auto repair shop out of his campsite. The rules we were given upon settling here clearly state that campsites are to be maintained in "a safe and orderly manner and ... keep it camping." The rules further state that "any and ALL external items must be camp related (grills, lawn chairs, coolers, bikes.) " Since when are using pneumatic power tools, power saws and hammers "keeping it camping or camp related?" This mobile auto repair shop, as his business is so named on his trailer, operates about six feet from the bedroom in our camper where we sleep. The other day when I complained the management told me they would "talk to him" but they never showed up to talk to our neighbor and he continued hammering and drilling away from 7am until 10pm that night. Apparently the campers surrounding this guy have no rights only the auto shop owner has rights here. There is a reason auto repair businesses are only allowed to operate in industrial zoned areas. I never realized campsites can be operated in these environments alongside an industrial business. It's disappointing enough for the local campground manager to allow one camper to trample the rights of the other campers, but when the KOA corporate response is to hide behind broken rules and passing the buck to the local manager, that's pathetic. Maybe the managers are intimidated by the picture of an assault rifle with threats to deter visitors that this guy has posted in his window. Not many nationally known companies would allow a local manager to sully their name and run such a trashy operation, but it appears KOA is an exception. Not only is the noise ridiculous, but this campground has not had functional public toilets and showers since before we got here and will not have them operational in the near future. This place also has the worst wi-fi reception of any place we've stayed. We are full-time campers and if this is how you treat your guests, KOA will be dropped to the bottom of our list when seeking future accommodations.

First of all, this is NOT a trailer park. Yes, there is one right next door but the campground is completely seperate from the trailer park. Second, this is a KOA. If your looking for a fine resort, than chances are you'r not going to look at KOA. In a pull through with more than enough room for my 36' coach and Toad. Yes, my neighbors hook-ups are outside my front door, but with plenty of room to spare. In any case, what would one expect, what with all utility hook ups on the left side? Combination of old/new, big/small, long term and transient. This location fit our needs, and our budget both.

Who rates these facilities for Good Sam? This is a trailer park. Sites are crammed together your neighbors septic hook up is at your front door in most cases. There are lots of extended stay people here and have been here longer than the 2 week maximum. Park is very difficult to navigate in dark. Bathrooms are continuously locked due to no security. Great for a no other option overnight stay. Not a typical KOA
