When we left West Yellowstone, Montana to head home to Los Angeles, our plan was to take a little detour to drive through Grand Tetons National Park and, the next day, Zion National Park. We got up early to make the journey.
When we started out, we had no idea where we would be by late afternoon. As we planned to drive through Zion National Park the next day, we wanted to reach a campground in the vicinity of U.S. Highway 89. We decided to "wing it" and not make any reservations for any specific campground.
As it turned out, we were in the vicinity of Richfield, Utah in the late afternoon. It just so happened that there is a KOA Kampground in Richfield. So we headed there.
We reached the KOA in the late-afternoon/early-evening. The KOA is nestled in a residential area of Richfield, away from the beaten-path.
The campground is an average sized KOA and it had well-maintained grounds, clean restrooms and showers and plenty of shade trees. It also has mini-golf, pool, bike rentals and cable tv.
The KOA is family-owned and operated by Mike and Julie.
What really impressed me with this KOA is that the showers had great water pressure and easy to operate. This was the best campground shower I ever experienced!
As we arrived in the late-afternoon/early-evening, I did not take any photographs. But it is an attractive campground with grassy sites.
