Campground Reviews

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!

Love the pool...the largest ever, in a campground. We use this KOA as an overnight, when heading to the North Lakes area

The Staff was friendly and very efficient. The campground and resstroom facilities were well maintained. This was just an overnight stay as we headed to Yellowstone NP, but have reserved a site for our return trip home.

Camp ground is VERY close to Interstate---truck traffic was quite noisy at night. Staff friendly. This was a one night stop so we didn't attend any of the camp evening programs.

Even though the campsites were wet from rain. Nothing could compare to our late night dinner with the lighting bugs... Rare quiet and romantic😘

Average KOA
Jul 29, 2015
The bugs (biting flies, picnic bugs, misquotes...) were horrible from sun up to sun down. We had citronella candles, camp fire and tons of bug spray and nothing helped. We spent most of the time in the camper which is a bummer. We were not happy with how the owner treated us when we first got there. We will not go back to this campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This camper decided to cut across extremely wet grass campsites to go to their site and pull in backwards. Had no respect for our campground! Only reason they are mad is because they got in trouble!

We stayed in the two bedroom cabin. The bed in the queen bedroom squeeked terribly. The futon in the main room was very very uncomfortable to sit on as a sofa. Not too bad as a bed. The blinds in the back window of the main room wouldn't go down. The staff were EXCELLENT. The pool was in MUCH need of concrete repair. We had a good time for a week, but won't go to this KOA again.

Great little campground

Wish we would've had longer to enjoy. We had just a short overnight. The pool was the best one of our entire vacation. Very clean & good temperature. The larger size was nice also. Easy in & out of the camping sites also.

The sites were level and the camp store was excellent. Had all the emergency things every camper would need. The only problems were the misquitoes (sp) and the large puddles because of the rain.

We had to purchase ice because our refridgerator broke and we could only buy small bags but had to pay the same price as if we bought a 20lb bag at a gas station.
Jul 24, 2015
Very nice place to stop over. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean but somewhat dated bathrooms. Nice swimming pool and playground. LOTS of highway noise made sleeping .
Jul 23, 2015
A great campground. Everyone was friendly and helpful. They also had a well stocked store and a nice meeting hall with games Would highly recommend this campground.

This was a nasty place. The laundry room was dis gusting with warning signs posted to have your laundry out of the machines by 9pm! Most places we stayed this summer had 24 hr laundry rooms. The area had had alloy of rain, and the grass was high and wet and the Mosquitos were awful.
Jul 20, 2015
The Staff is great.

A nice flat campground. Good childrens play area. When we parked our rig we were almost perfectly level. The biggest problem had was the mud. It had rained a lot recently and the roads and the campsites were muddy. The place needs to put down some more rock. There was also a major problem with mosquitoes I realize the camp can not stop them, but we could not leave our rig due to them.
Jul 19, 2015
Loved this place except...the mosquitoes. The management is super sweet, the area is beautiful, the bathrooms clean, the little store has everything a person could need, the laundry room was clean.
Jul 18, 2015
The floors of the cabin were way too wet. It was if they had mopped right before we arrived it took at least 1 and 1 half hours to dry. Not that any one can control this but the mosquitos were terrible. the game room was dirty and looked as if it had not been used in a while.
Jul 18, 2015
Nice campground too bad so many mosquitos.
