Due to its location, it is pretty quiet. However, because of the cliffs on two sides, noises can be amplified (like the person who used an impact drill for their jacks on their fifth wheel to leave at 7am).
We regularly stay at this KOA when visiting family in the area. We love the Deluxe Patio sites, but they are not in our budget when on a fixed income. If you can afford it, the deluxe patio sites offer the most room, plus a concrete patio, fire pit, and grill.
This time, we stayed in the longer pull throughs on the other side of the campground - but these pull throughs are narrow if you have slideouts on both sides. Forget using an awning, we barely have room for the slides or walking between slide and hedge. See photos.
These sites are closest to the road, and there is road noise. Especially when the trash pickup truck comes at 6am.
The mini golf area has been refreshed and it looks really nice.
Honestly, we chose this RV park due to proximity to the Cummins facility. I don’t believe we will choose this park again.
Gated. Full hookups.
Proximity to Nellis AFB flyovers. Started at 7 am and were on/off all day. If you want a place to sleep in, this is not it. I love planes and jets, but this park is on the flight path.
Everything, except for convenience stores and gas stations, is at least 3-5 miles away: grocery stores, restaurants, etcetera.
Bad part of town, hence the need for security gates.
A severe tire damage spike strip is installed to keep vehicles from going the wrong way. And it is at the sharp left turn to exit (with an RV space across the way). There has to be a better way.
Speed bumps are throughout park. I hate this trend.
Not necessarily big rig friendly if you have a full side slideout. Could not use awning because tree butted right up to the slide.
This RV park is so new, construction is not done on some of the amenities like the pickle ball court and basketball court. That said, we were impressed with the roads (wide) and spots (33’ feet wide, 80’ long). Every site has 50 amp service. This park is truly big rig friendly. There is freeway noise, but during the summer, you can’t hear it when you have A/C on. GPS cannot find it yet, so call ahead to get directions. Reservation system allows you to pick your site ahead of time.
We needed stable, steady Internet for a month. While we regularly travel with two hotspots for Internet coverage, we barely needed to use them.
We stayed in one of the satellite friendly spots. Unfortunately, the space we were in was not so "friendly" due to the mature trees on either side. The satellite friendly spots are in the back of the RV park, and the aisle behind us had newer/younger trees that would not block satellite (but also would provide no shade).
Your experience at this park may vary. There were clearly a lot of monthly/semi-permanent residents at this park, especially on the back in spots at the edges. We would go back here, but we'd get a pull-through site next time.
- Location in reference to Zion, Bryce, and Cedar Breaks.
- Post office (for general delivery) is 2-3 blocks away.
- Major restaurants and retail stores within 10-15 miles (St. George).
- At least 3 state parks within a 20 mile radius, two are water sport havens (Sand Hollow and Quail Creek) and the other is hiking trail nirvana (Snow Canyon).
- No pool on site.
- Location of trees on RV space meant that we could not use our patio awning for the month. If we positioned our RV to allow us to use the awning, we wouldn't be able to park our tow vehicle at all.
- Our RV space was in the area with grass between the spaces. Sprinklers were programmed for daily delivery, and because of the width of the concrete pad, we were getting hard water stains on our RV (the sprinkler head pointed directly at our steps out of the RV). We noticed that on some of the "monthly" sites, there were plastic sprinkler head "deterrents" that would keep the spray from overshooting onto the concrete pad.
We stayed one night here, and it was amazingly peaceful and quiet. We expected dispersed camping, but were pleasantly surprised by the campsites. No hookups, but a picnic table and grill/firepit were at every campsite. Pit toilet buildings were located in several areas. Sites were semicircular with gravel. Easier to disconnect/hookup tow vehicles in the paved parking area by the boat launch/ramp.
We visited during Oregon’s “high” season, so by the time we booked, only back in spots were available for our big rig. Okay stay, just not impressed with amenities for price and that park has sappy trees over spaces.
Our back in spot was under trees that drip sap. We have sap on our rig and our tow. The rules allowed you to wash your windshield, but you could only use water in a bucket - no spraying with a hose. First time we have ever had to wash our windshield before leaving a park.
Sites, despite an apparently fresh dump/spread of gravel, were not as level as site managers seemed to think. Back of the back in space sloped just enough to cause issues.
We only stayed here one night, so we did not use the amenities. They have a lot of outdoor-oriented recreation amenities, plus a clubhouse.
Their pull through site was long enough for both our Class A and our tow vehicle. Decent amount of concrete pad, though it did feel like the space between sites was a little close. Looks like you can do groups and rallies here, but we were traveling on our own. We had a Pull Through site, which is approximately 70 feet long.
Trash is across from the main office building, which is clear across the park from most of the spots. Kind of a "throw your bag into the trash" on the way out of the park situation, unless you liked a walk. :)
There are some monthly options and sites, but all sites were well maintained.
This was a pleasant surprise for us. The positives outweigh the couple of minor things, so we gave it 5/5.
- Pool on-site, but no hot tub. I did use the pool, but for someone like me who has extremely fair skin, only in the last hour of pool time, 8-9 p.m.)
- Spaces are long enough for big rigs, as long as you get the 65 foot sites. They have two sizes: 50 foot and 65 foot. I'd recommend the 65 foot sites for a big rig, so you have enough room to park your vehicle. There were no gravel sites - all sites were concrete pads.
- More than one laundry location. Main office building has two washers, two dryers. We didn't check out the other laundry building.
- More than one restroom location throughout park.
- Wifi was pretty decent, though spotty at times.
- The picnic table is modular. If you didn't need the table, it was easy to separate the two halves and have bench seating if seating was needed.
- While they had recycling containers in our section, there was only one trash receptacle clear across the park. And it was a trash compactor, so when you used your key code to open it, the stench was almost overwhelming.
- The entrance to the concrete pads was a little steep and might result in bottoming out. It was not a gentle slope, but a sharp incline.
This RV park was overall a good experience. We didn’t use the pool, but they had one. Our biggest complaint about this park was the minimal distance between sites. It does have close proximity to a lot of what Ogden offers. Concrete pads were nice, but were a couple dollars more than gravel sites. Checkin was quick and easy. Their preferred route out of the park is fairly narrow and goes right by the dumpster. We had to go around another loop and take a different lane out due to a park guest who decided to back up and block the preferred route while loading their toy hauler. We were only here for one night on the way to another destination, but we might have used more amenities if staying longer. Price seemed reasonable.
We had a 10 day stay. Let me start with the positives:
