We originally reserved a tent site at the OK RV Park down the road but quickly found it unacceptable. I remembered that the KOA also had a few tent sites so we dropped in without a reservation. The front desk attendant answered my questions and took my money but was very short and acted as if she had something else more important to do.
We found the tent site to be very nice. There is a row of grass sites which is watered to keep the grass going strong. We were told we could have the "super tent" site for no extra charge but it was bare dirt so we opted for the grass.
Overall, the park was clean and met our needs for the night. Read on for my whining if you like...
We parked next to the site and went to bed early as we had a long day of travel the next day. I'll admit we were asleep early, by 8:45, but we were startled awake at 9:30 by a group moving into the site next to us. Why they were assigned this site I am not sure. They could have been assigned a site farther down from us as no one else was using the tent sites. After 15 minutes of racket I thought maybe they had not seen our tent (it is edged with reflective material but still) so I got out and made a trip to the car. I was sure to shine my flashlight their way but they paid no heed. I checked the quiet hours and the new comers were allowed until 10:00 so my wife and I tried to sleep and eventually our new neighbors settled in as well some time shortly after 10:00.
