2016 UPDATE - We paid $48.50 for a full hookup in an entirely different area we had never been in and we enjoyed ourselves. It was during our trek across the desert so we wanted to be by the pool and our site was level, our electricity was perfect and the gal that checked us in was wonderful. Now the price is still on the high side but we are okay with that when we checked out the other options in the area and found this one to be the better of them all.

2016 UPDATE - NEVER AGAIN...We paid $48.89 for a water and electric only and our electric was questionable...it was dark by the time we realized just how questionable it was. The person in the office would not allow us to just move into the space in front of us since it was a full hookup. We explained we would just be plugging in the electric, then she claimed it was taken but nobody used it all night. Rates are rising and even though they are adding tent sites and updating the grounds this place will not be on our agenda in our upcoming travels. We have been stopping here since 2008 but we will no longer use this as an overnight stop and we will be attempting to contact someone who is in charge to place a formal complaint. On the website it does not have a manager/owner contact person so we are not sure how to start but we will find a way to get our complaint in the right hands so that this sort of treatment does not continue to happen. Until then we will avoid this place!

2016 Update - We paid $44 with our KOA discount for a site with only water and electric since the full hookups were even higher priced. When we were hooking up our water spigot it bursted and Jerry got soaked, so we moved sites and they fixed it immediately.

2013 UPDATE - We paid $36 with our KOA discount for the same site as before...price is rising and the place just remains the same, no better but no worse.  We would still stay here again if we are ever in the area but may also look into some of the other parks in the area.


We paid $26.00 with our KOA discount and points for a water, electric, sewer, fairly level gravel site. It also included cable, WiFi and shuttle service to Calico Ghost Town which we took advantage of on our first visit. It is definitely overpriced, as most KOA’s are but we always come back. The sites were wide and were private with the way the landscaping was created around them.  


We noticed a decline in the appearance of the park, especially in the laundry room. On our first visits the laundry facilities were one of the best we have seen on the road, there were many washer and dryers, even an extra big washer for rugs, which we needed to wash but this time we found there were more out of order than working machines. They had clean individual showers that were being remodeled on our first visit, but have been kept up in the years passing.



The staff has always been the friendliest and accommodating and the store carried many convenient supplies and souvenirs. In our future stays we may check out some of the other parks in the area since this one seems to be going downhill and the price has not.

About twenty years ago, we stayed without hookups at the campground at Calico Ghost Town. We were camping with a group of people who had all adopted children from Korea. That trip is memorable because we were new to RVing and we ran down our batteries that night because we ran our propane furnace all night. We still had a great time, though, and it was fun exploring the ghost town.

We enjoyed our stay at the ghost town campground a few years ago. We have had some unsatisfactory experiences with KOA and now try to avoid them.
