We stayed for four nights at the Brigham City / Perry South KOA Journey in late June of 2017. We originally booked three nights, but extended our stay due to a delay in truck repairs. The campground staff was quite helpful with accommodating our request for an extra night. This is a very nice, clean, quiet, and well-maintained KOA.
We generally find that KOAs are pricey for our tastes, but we are willing to pay for the convenience for short stays or if there are not better alternatives. For four nights at a 50 amp full hookup pull-thru site, we paid about $46 per night, including tax and our KOA Value Kard Rewards Discount.

We received a moderate 4G Verizon signal at this campground. We did not need our cellular antenna and booster to improve MiFi hot spot internet access. The campground provided free WiFi, but we did not use this during our stay.
The water at this campground tested moderately hard – we added our water softener to the water filtration stack.
