Way Over Priced
Well, the staff is very nice and helpful. I agree with most everyone's review, with respect to cost. Since there has been more rain, I'm assuming the lawns and trees are greener that usual. Very narrow spaces. For paved spaces, they are very uneven. But, after trying to get on the road from Half Moon Bay, CA and hitting road blocks from accidents, traffic in multiple places along the way, we decided to stop here. 4 & 1/2 hours of no progress. So, what I'm trying to say is that it works in a pinch.

Not Worth The Cost
Restroom/Shower was clean & roomy enough to be considered handicapped accessible with all the grab bars. The office attendant was friendly & even allowed us to change sites as the original one had a deep, muddy rut that interfered with our levelers & steps. All the sites were long enough but very narrow to the point that the trailer tires barely fit. Other than the casino up the hill, there were no amenities to speak of. This certainly did not warrant the $80 cost for the night. I would not return here.

Just ok. Dog walk area smells like a litter box and not very appealing. WiFi sucks. Shuttle to casino closed. Very loud as is sits right in the freeway. Too many permanent residents that just make it look rundown.

Just Ok
Essentially just a big parking lot. Spaces are tight. Not enough laundry machines for a park this size. Casino shuttle not running due to COVID.

Old campground in need of updating. Sites real tight and not close to level. Office not helpful and almost rude. No where near the amount of facilities for the number of sites they have. Surprised KOA lets them use the journey tag.

Nice Camp Ground
Stayed 3 nights, good sites, full hookups. Front desk folks friendly and helpful. With covid going on, some limitations but would return

Super nice lady at the check in let me cruise in and pick out our spot. Pretty quiet at night and the casino next door was fun.

Ok park acquit space, friendly staff. They are doing improvement so it is a little noisy during the day. Casino is walking distance, Saturday and Sunday they have all you can eat lobster. BA--DA-BING. Would stay again.

Cramped, Loud, But Convenient
I felt like I was in a parking lot. The spot I was in required backing in, unhooking, and parking my tow vehicle beside the trailer. Which is fine, except for the fact that the neighbors tend to park in front of my trailer. Lots of screaming kids unsupervised. This is my first and hopefully last KOA stay. I much prefer state parks. Just none near here with electric. I’m headed to a no-hookup site next. Give me space and quiet! Also- restrooms are fine except you have to get a key from the attendant. I hate having bathroom time monitored.

Not up to standards i thought koa maintained . Not enough showers and restrooms. Permanet campers had old couches by thier look to abandoned campers. The sites were small and uneven. Would not recommend this campground to anyone. One redeeming feature was a view of city

Needs Work
As an extended stay location, park was barely acceptable. Staff does not clean park. Trash along fence line has been picked up at all. Staff does clean hot tub as sand in bottom has been there for four months as of this writing. Many water leaks and road repairs, currently underway during high season! Management is not responsive to complaints. They need to higher work campers so they know what life is like on the park.

Expensive For What You Get
Small spaces. One small off leash park and no other areas to walk a dog. Was unable to get on the wifi despite numerous attempts. Staff was nice enough. Would look for another place before paying the price here again.

Cramped and very expensive. Driving around in the middle of the night trying to find a site that was listed as open. Found one and tried to set up only to find that neighboring RV pop outs overhung the spot and we couldn't make ours work so had to pack up and find yet another spot. Only stayed to sleep during the night and wish we had found a parking lot and saved our money.

Nice campsites. Overnight bathrooms were shower/toilet combos and only one men's and one woman's. If someone is showering and you need the toilet, your options are to wait until they are finished showering or hope the other bathroom isn't occupied. The bathrooms were a mess but that was due to sloppy campers.

Really poor service. I called all day trying to get through to make a reservation , even leaving my phone number and was never called back. I know in general, KOA record-keeping is abysmal, but this place seems to epitomise the worst.

Customer service... No
Great place to camp if looking to gamble at Boomtown BUT we were there for four days. .. the cable was out for the whole time and there was no hot water for 3 days. ..we were put in the only space without a picnic table and was told by the desk clerk that she didn't know if we could get one. . Didn't even offer to check for us. .. we found one at a site that was closed and being worked on and my husband and I carried it to our site. ..husband will be writing to the owner. .. would be willing to give it another try. ..
