The Lowe’s overall rating (based on value for the
money, quality of amenities and utilities, site suitability
and what we think other RV’ers in our situation would
be looking for) = 7 out of 10 stars

The campground was full of mature trees and lush grass

 

Noise level and overall “feel” of the park?
This campground was fairly busy for a “non-tourist” location,
obviously a stopover for people traveling through, as many
seemed to stay overnight only.  It was a nice looking park  and
had lots of trees and no exterior road noise since it was located
at the end of a residential street.  The new owners are really
trying to tidy the place up, and they’re doing a good job.  We
were here over the Memorial weekend, and it turned out to be
a fine place to hide out from the national park crowds we had
been exposed to during the past few weeks.

Road and site access/type?
Gravel interior roads and sites.  Access into pull-through sites
was easy, and it looked like access into the back-in sites was
also a cinch.

Sites spacious and/or level?  Comments?
Spacing was tight, with small lawn areas between each site.
Length of the pull-through sites was good, we were able to easily
park our car behind the motorhome.  The pull-through sites in
our section were very close to level, and most of the others we
looked at had few leveling blocks in use.

Utilities and WiFi/cell reception?
We were happy to get a good Verizon signal here, after lousy
service in Torrey and at Bryce Canyon NP.  Our phones and
hotspot worked well.  The campground provided WiFi but we
didn’t get a chance to try it out.  The 50-amp power and water
pressure were strong.

Picnic table and/or fire pit?
Picnic table only.  We saw only one site in our area with a fire
pit, site B3.  It would be nice if they’d upgrade all sites with a
fire pit, in our opinion.  Maybe not possible because the sites
are so small there would be a smoke problem.

Bathrooms/showers/laundry room?
The men’s bathroom was being renovated, but what I saw of
it showed it’s looking very nice with high-quality tile and
fixtures.  The laundry room was small and crowded with 8
washers, 8 dryers and a tiny folding table.

Pet friendly?
Dogs had to be on-leash, of course, but there were some
grassy areas in addition to the grass around the sites.  There
was also a “dog park” area for off-leash exercise, but it was
gravel and didn’t look very appealing for the doggies.

Bicycle/walking trails nearby?
Nothing right out of the park, which was located in a
residential area and adjacent to a mobile home park.  Folks
could could ride out the gate and into town, but there were
no recreational trails around.

Groceries & other services nearby?
The Linn’s market was well-stocked and just over a mile
away by car.  There was also a Super Walmart in town and a
Home Depot.  Really no large businesses to handle RV
repairs, although we were told there was a mobile RV repair
service available.

Comments:
We’re not big KOA fans, but this park was one of the nicer
ones we’ve visited during the past few months.  The many
mature trees would be a blessing during summer months.
We just wish the site spacing was better, in which case it would
get a higher rating.  Most sites didn’t have fire pits.  Either
have fire pits or don’t have fire pits!  We discovered too late
that we could have gotten a site with a fire pit.  If they don’t
mention that at check-in time it doesn’t do us much good.  We
stayed in site B4, but B3 had a fire pit and a large patio/grass
area – get that site if you can.
