Nice campground
Aug 24, 2015
we were only there one night for a few hours
Aug 24, 2015
The campground was close to the main building and there was plenty of activities for my two kids. The staff was very helpful in registration and campground setup. A great stay.

Pleasant staff, beautiful shade trees, clean and neat campground and nice, clean bathrooms = extra nice three day stay.

Excellent location. Clean well maintained sites. The power boxes are in great shape and properly grounded. Friendly and helpful staff.

Sewers and 50 amp service was not available to us

Very very friendly staff. From the moment we drove in, we were greeted with a smile and wave. Right near the highway but the noise didn't bother us. I didn't like the mud in many areas. The beds were comfy for cabin beds. It is located in a nice Midwestern setting with trees and fields around. Pool was nice though a little inconvenient to the rest of the camp.

I've stayed with you 4 times and every time was very pleasant! What a beautiful campground, nice views and well maintained.

Site itself was fine, level. Restrooms are old and need major overhaul. Washers/dryers old and need replacement. Woman staffing evening shiftcwas delightful.

I was very pleased that I could stay one night even the sites were all booked. The staff found a spot right beside the Office! Thank you!!

Trees in entrance hanging way way too low for big rigs! Need some new gravel for roads and spots! Needs some updates but for quick overnite ok..just trim trees and be aware to ask if you go there to be in a space without trees if in big rigs.

Great deluxe cabin - clean, lovely big deck, not facing any neighbours in an obtrusive way, great pool (and clean!!!) our kids loved the playground. Very friendly staff and cute camp store.

The Albert Lea KOA is an exceptional place to stay.

We stayed in their upgraded Cabin Fantastic cabin with Air-condition we loved it
Aug 17, 2015
Our family reunion with about 40+ people was a success and so fun. Everyone enjoyed the pool. The cabin worked great for us.

Two problems: first, other campers at this KOA constantly walked through our campsite and other sites. Nearly walked between our picnic table and our trailer! Again, constantly! Second, noise curfew was not enforced. Screaming teenage kids ( girls ) way after 11pm. No supervision going on here from the KOA staff or kids parents. Not good. Both issues should be discussed at sign in at desk.

great place
Aug 15, 2015
Very friendly and accommodating staff. Very clean facilities.
Aug 15, 2015
This probably has been mentioned but the interstate 90 was close by and the noise left it almost impossible to sleep. The noise being aside it was clean and well maintained but the highway noise will keep me from staying there again. Sorry but I would only leave this as I am sure other campers had the same experience. Thank you.

tres heureux du choix de site beau terrain
Aug 14, 2015
The campsites are easy in and out. The larger than average pool was awesome.
Aug 14, 2015
Loved it there. Cabin was awesome and everyone friendly.

Clean. Quiet. Got there around 7:30 pm. I was told swimming available until 9pm. Ate quickly, changed, got to pool at 8 and they were locking up the area because nobody swam in the pool for the last two hours. I had to go back to the office and talk to the lady who checked me in so that they reopen the pool and let me swim until 9.

Clean and friendly is the only nice thing I can say. The wifi is worthless and the claim that there are no TV signals.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our wifi was down due to wifi provider updating there system and was down for hours! We did not have wifi to our computers either! We do get local channels! Depends on your antenna direction!

Great! Be back again next year

This is one of our favorite KOA's. The owners are friendly and accommodating. The kids like the pool and play area. If you have kids and RC cars, pack them ... this KOA has a race track for RC cars. I didn't scope out the website before we left so we didn't bring our RC cars. Our grandson really wanted to run a car on the RC track.

Check in was easy and painless. They gave me a map of where I was to go and how to get there. Bathroom facilities were clean. Great place to stay.

Nice park. Helpful staff

Very clean campground with helpful friendly staff. We enjoyed our overnight stays.

Tree branches left low that scratch Montana 5th wheelers. No water pressure! We were filling kitchen sink and that left our neighbor with NO WATER! Nicely kept ground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Low water pressure was due to camper turning off water hydrant to park, not due to you filling your kitchen sink!

Very friendly. Have stayed here several times.

Dusty roads, mosquitoes were out, so could not sit out at night. Nice pool. WiFi was deplorable. Why have it if it doesn't work well? Though for travelers.
Aug 03, 2015
This KOA was nice, the door on our cabin didn't open all the way as it hit on the floor. The fire pit was nice!
Aug 03, 2015
Love the pool...the largest ever, in a campground. We use this KOA as an overnight, when heading to the North Lakes area
