I am an avid tent camper, that just bought a pop up camper so my family can enjoy camping even more
Great place

Went back in May of 2019 for a family tent camping trip. Friendly Staff, Clean, Well Maintained, and the Lake was great for fishing and kayaking. One of the best features is the large sights, as we had no problem fitting 3 large tents and didn’t have to listen to anyone snoring! Pet and Kid friendly. Looking forward to taking out pop up camper up there later this year.

Not and easy drive but worth it

If it wasn’t for the drive/road to get there this would be an easy 5 star. You can camp right in the lake and enjoy some fishing and kayaking as we did. This place was nice and quite. Is generator free from 9pm to 5am so you really get to hear the water and nature once you close your eyes. I have been told there is an easier road to get there than the one we took, which might allow us to go back.

1st Time at a KOA....

This was the first time we have ever been to a KOA as we have never owned a trailer until now. This place had a very friendly staff and the new own is on sight and working to make it even better. Our stay was 3 days, 2 Night and we enjoyed the weekend. Clean all around, heated pool, very kid friendly. The only down side and the reason for not get 5 stars is you can hear the Highway Traffic and Trains all night long.

Basic Tent Camping 101

If your looking to throw up and tent and relax this is the place for you. There is enough space to boondock a small RV, Tent Trailer, or Travel Trailer. The main campsites sits on the creek, which always has fresh clean water running. There are several other tent camping sites further back, however they are closed till 2022 for regrowth. You will hear cars/truck from time to time as this is the same road the Ranchers use to get back and forth to Payson. There is one vaulted bathroom. You are in nature so you will see clear skies, animals, and be able to cook over and open camp fire. In all in all I love this place and always look forward to our weekend trips up there twice a year.
