Distant Drums! It just sounds enchanting. It's hard to know from reviews sometimes if a place is worthy or not, especially when you don't know an area. It's like rolling the dice at the Casino just over the hill from the Resort. I am happy to report that this one was not a crap shoot. Score, Distant Drums RV Resort!!! We were in the area to visit Sedona. This place was convenient and the best place to park your RV of all the places we passed when out exploring the area. We are so glad we were able to get a site in here. Yes, the RV Resort is kind of on a hill, but the sites are paved and not too hard to level. The pull thru sites alternated or were opposing, meaning you could walk out your door and hang out at your picnic table and so could your neighbor walk out and hang out at theirs... So you got to know your neighbor, which we didn't mind at all. The highway noise wasn't even noticeable. There was a nice pool and jacuzzi, a great laundry facility, the best gym set-up I've encountered yet, and they had meeting facilities, nice showers (though we have no need of them), and propane. The landscaping was also appealing and the sunsets were nice. The office staff were also very friendly and helpful. Furthermore, I knew this was the place for me when the big marquis advertised that The Band Perry was playing at the Casino in a couple of weeks ( I took it as a sign of fate bc they are from my hometown). We are already making plans to come back later in the year for a longer stay. Do yourself a favor and don't miss out on this place!
Williams is dubbed as the Gateway to the Grand Canyon. It was a little over an hour drive to get to Mather Point. The owners of Railside RV Ranch were very friendly and helpful. The best part was the low rates. The park is wide open and the sites were basic-- no frills-- and all gravel, very dusty and windy. The wifi did not work for us and I ended up turning it off and using data from my cellular carrier. The place did feel very safe and the owners live on site, which is always a plus. This place served its purpose for our trek to the Grand Canyon. However, if ever in the area again, we would prefer to plan way ahead and stay in Tuscayan just outside the Grand Canyon. If you don't mind the drive and you're only planning to be in the area a couple of days, Railside is definitely a good enough choice overall.
Where do I begin? This place is phenomenal! It is 5 stars, the sun, and the moon! From the day we made our reservation to the day we left the resort, everyone here went out of the way to be accommodating. Like Vegas, this place is bustling with activity but it is also quiet. The sites are a decent size with grass and a picnic table concrete area, and enough room to park our 350 Dually. The amenities were top notch: pool and spa (even a separate pool area for just kids and families), appealing landscaping and a waterfall, putting greens all around the property, dog areas, clean shower, bath, and laundry facilities, large convenience store, a cafe that serves breakfast and lunch at reasonable prices, a fitness center (decent enough for me to modify for a maintenance work out, even though I travel equipped for my workouts), and they seem to have resort activities on schedule and even church services. The only downside I can think of is that you must pay for Internet access at your site although Internet access in the lobby is free (no big deal to us, as we just used data from our phone on a personal hotspot). The resort also has great security, not that it is needed. The LV Strip is about 4 miles away and will cost you around $20 one way to get a cab. The resort also has a detailed list of recommended vendors, which was very useful. The best part is that the price tag on a place like this wasn't much more than we've paid for some basic KOA's or places that I rate as 3 stars. This place will be our "home is where you park it" anytime we are in the Vegas area. Even if you lose your shirt on the strip, you hit the jackpot when you stay at Oasis Las Vegas RV Resort!
And that is a convenient place to stay overnight. Nothing fancy, nothing special, just gravel roads and sites that are fairly level, full hook-ups, cable, 65' long sites close together but mostly vacant, and renovating the bathhouses... $36/night and that's with a KOA discount... So a little pricey in my opinion for what it is... The reviews on here seem to vary and I guess it depends on the perspective of the reviewer... When I write reviews, 1 star is awful, 2 star is almost awful (I would not Hope to stay at a 1 or 2 star again), 3 star means average (I'd stay again and I really had no expectation of it to be anything other than a 3 for my needs), 4 star means better than average, and 5 star means I am blown away (I could hunker down in a 4 or 5 star place for awhile)... With all that being said, Limon KOA gets a 3 star rating from me... Happy Travels
We discovered this RV Park on our way out West about a month ago. We stayed again on our way back East. It's just as fabulous the second time as it was the first time! I love it when you find a place you can count on!!!
Good for an overnight... Sites are easy to get in and out of, packed gravel... From what I could tell from researching campsites, this may be your best choice from within an hour of either side of the border... We stayed at the Goodland KOA on our way out, but we could not get a site there on the way back because they have such few sites with full hook-ups and pull-thrus... As it turns out, we like High Plains better because the sites are bigger and easier to maneuver and they have a lot of sites...There is also a fuel stop with good maneuverability directly across the highway from the campground... Very convenient stop
I think we were at 8700 feet in elevation! I know it was over 8,000 for sure. We were coming from the West and had to take the next exit up from the exit in the directions because of construction work due to a rock slide. We enjoyed the drive thru the casino/ mining town of Blackhawk and Central City, but the route to the KOA just kept climbing and climbing and climbing. We were literally on the top of a mountain! The KOA is beautiful and the views phenomenal. The sites were a good size. We normally get pull-thrus for our 40' 5th wheel but had no problem with this back in site. They had an excellent camp store, and a jacuzzi. You can even have pizza delivered to your RV. They also have shuttles to the casinos if you're into that. After we got set up, the fog rolled in. Then, we got a dusting of snow overnight. It was just beautiful. We accidentally reserved this KOA thinking it was on the West End of Denver! LOL! So I learned a lesson about doing my due diligence when reserving a campsite. It was an unintended stop for us and about an hour out of our way, but it was an experience... And that's what this lifestyle is all about! We would definitely stay here again, but I doubt we will have a reason to;)
We had just planned to stay overnight while passing thru, but Lucy was so friendly at check-in that she convinced us to stay two nights... And we are glad we did. We visited the Colorado National Monument and did a wine tour of Palisade. We wished we had time to visit the Grand Mesa, but next time. The RV park was just what we needed for a couple of nights. The sites were hard packed gravel, which is almost like concrete, and the sites were very roomy and the easiest ever to get in and out of. The laundry facility was the best we've seen in awhile, and we have been traveling for the last three months. You could hear a train in the distance, but I personally love the sound of trains! And I meant to mention that they do offer cable and decent wifi.
Convenient and in a beautiful setting... We were in Moab to mountain bike and see the Arches National Park...We spent 3 nights here... The staff was friendly, especially the younger girl, but the older lady working on the day of check-in was not very friendly and we were there 10 minutes waiting to check-in before she even acknowledged us... I understand she was dealing with other customers, but come on at least throw me a bone... The sites were close, the turns tight for bigger rigs though manageable, and of course dusty gravel sites... There was barely room enough for us to park our truck at our site...Also the sewer connection kind of ran uphill at our site and was somewhat difficult to connect because we had to crawl under our slide to make it work... We didn't spend a lot of time watching tv but they had a zillion channels...Although we didn't use it, the pool and jacuzzi were nice... The store had minimal items and appeared to be in renovation mode... We had no need for the bath facilities or laundry so I am not sure about those... We mainly give this one 4 stars because of location and it wasn't bad, but it just didn't wow us... Plus it is owned/managed by the same group that owns/manages the Pony Express in Salt Lake City, where we had just stayed... It could probably even be a 3 star in our opinion...Honestly, next time we are in Moab we plan to try out the Portal RV Park just down the road
This was a fabulous RV resort! We were guests here for 2 weeks. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The pads were all concrete and everything was well maintained. The laundry room was good, had a nice pool, and even a clubhouse area inside. I also especially liked that there was a paved bike trail just out the back gate, and it goes for miles and miles. It goes all the way to Provo. However, riding in that direction is sketchy in places. Instead, I would head North and go towards Bountiful. Even going that way I was able to get in 30 mile rides. The highway noise didn't really bother us and we even slept with our windows open on some of the cool nights. There were a lot of really nice rigs in this RV resort, which says all it needs to say. This will definitely be our stop when in the Salt Lake City area.
