"Warm welcome"

The campground is no longer KOA (since summer 2017) but is now Good Sam. We got a very warm welcome by the owners here, and felt right at home. They got some goats (one called Sam, who thinks he's a dog and comes running when the owner whistles... Read more

"Needs some TLC"

We chose the campground because Hitch-N-Post RV Park was full. They were very nice and pointed us to the other two campgrounds in town. The Crazy horse RV campark is well set up, nice shady sites, but has not been taken care of for a long while.... Read more

"You can only stay here when you visit for an event"

So we didn't stay, I called ahead, and we did not even visit. The one star is for not being open for travelers.

"No cell phone coverage "

We are not sure how the other reviewers got Verizon coverage, but there is none on this campground. We paid $8 because the water was shut off for the season. There was still water available in the bathrooms. The visitor center was also closed for... Read more

"Check out the public library"

The campground is old, and some of the sites are not very level. As it is the end of September, there are plenty of spaces to choose from, and we found one that is level enough. The 30 Amp electrical outlets are in the front of the spots. If you... Read more

"Very welcoming"

The total eclipse of the sun was coming and we had no campground yet. Most campgrounds were fully booked a year or more in advance. So was the Worland RV Park and Campground, 30 minutes away from the totally zone. However, when I called, we were... Read more

Colorado Springs

The campground we made reservations for at Colorado Springs is a little creepy, a lot of homeless hang around, and it is pretty run down. When we arrive we are however greeted by a fellow campe...

‘In the middle of Intercourse is a good place to take a buggy ride’, so our guide tells us. We managed to keep a straight face – barely. We are near Lancaster, PA, where there is a large concen...

Austin, capital of Texas

The state park we picked, McKinney Falls State Park, is booked for the weekend, and we can only stay one night. It’s obvious why the park is so popular, close to the city and very beautiful. We...

Birthday in Big Bend

After the well-equipped campground about 25 miles south of Crater Lake, we spend the weekend on the campground in the park itself – without electricity, cell reception or WiFi. We’re really rou...
