Experience we all loved

These cabins are very nice. We had never stayed at a KOA before and were hesitant to stay there because we thought the cabins were not going to be what we were looking for and not sure what staying at a KOA would be like. We talked to a couple people at the KOA and read some reviews online and with the positive feedback from other travelers decided to book a few nights during our family trip. It really was a great atmosphere for us, especially for a trip visiting the national parks and focused on the outdoors.
These are log cabins and seemed new and very well cared for. The one we stayed in had a loft with a queen bed and twin bed for kids to sleep and a private queen bedroom for us. There was a full bathroom and a kitchen with a 3/4 fridge, stove top burners, microwave, sink and dish and pots to cook. We had a poured concrete patio that was landscaped nicely with a fire pit for campfires and a gas barbecue.
Once we got the hang of making the fire, first night we had a lot of smoke, it was truly great to have campfires at night. Just sitting around the fire and laughing with our family was the best memory I had for our trip. Our cabin overlooked a creek which was very peaceful to hear at night. We also loved how scenic the property was. There was fully mature trees throughout the KOA and a great walk along the Snake River.
One thing to note is that you do not get maid service everyday. We asked for extra towels though and they brought them to us promptly. You are very close to Jackson and Grand Teton National Park but the trip to Yellowstone is a long day and would advise splitting your trip with a stay in Yellowstone if your are looking to spend more than one day the and if you have days to spare on your vacation. 2-3 days in the Jackson Hole area and 2-3 days in Yellowstone is a great mix.
Back to our stay, there was also some great activities onsite or in close proximity. We all went whitewater rafting which was thrilling. We also received a 10% discount on the river trip and the horseback riding right across the street.
We came big fans of KOAs after our first experience here and look forward to staying in more cabins.
