Campground Reviews

Jul 13, 2015
Thankful for late nite registration! Came in late and parked. We sleep 7 hrs and hit the road for another long day of travel. The campground seemed pleasant. Thank you!

Very handy for the Freeway - they were upgrading the power in our area from 30 amp to 20 / 30 / 50 - so will be even better soon

We enjoyed our stay and everyone was really helpful

The staff was very nice and lent me some stuff to ease the multitude if mosquito bites I got. The bugs and weather dampened our stay. One of the seasonal campers was very rude to us and he and the lack of things to do in the area will make it not likely we'll go back. Noisy too. Freeway and train tracks very close. Lots of traveling one nighter people there. Not many "camping". Just staying over

Our stay started out good. However, the morning of our second day they had electrical issues that ended up lasting all day. We ended up leaving and going to the next KOA on our way. Also, mosquitos in the dog park were horrible. Staff was very pleasant and promptly refunded us when we had to leave.

Nice campground & staff! Only negatives would be the dusty roads & mosquitoes (spraying for both would be helpful) & connecting to the Internet was impossible the majority of our stay.

I gave a three star based on stays at other KOA's. It is right on I 90 interstate, so for a quick overnight and traffic noise OK. They do a good job at keeping it clean. Most of the sites are grass and you will need to relevel at least once since the ground it fairly soft. The bathrooms and showers were clean but need a little update. The pool was OK but cold and is open to public Outside guests.

Bathrooms need to updated.

Needs a bit of maintenance. Staff need a bit of training. For example a roll of toilet paper was on the bathroom floor. A staff member cam in to use the facilities, but did nothing to take care of the roll as it was still on the floor a few hours later.

Friendly hosts. Pretty clean. Bathroom tiles breaking up in showers with old style camp plumbing-wrench device for water control made it hard to get correct temp.

It was an enjoyable stay. Nice staff. Good accommodations. Heavy rains created muddy/swampy spots around park and some loud, late-night soft ball players were obstacles, but all else was good.

Showers were clean, sites were neat. Approach road in definite need of gravel. Dog potty bag dispensers all empty. Wi-Fi worked but no internet available-useless!

Staff was nice, campground needs lots of maintenance. Kiddie pool is falling apart and had chunks of concrete in bottom where kids walked

Nice people. Needs some maintenance. Unfortunately no one enforced their no smoking in pool area policy so had smokers in and out constantly.

The bathrooms were run down and dirty. Toilets didn't work properly and tiles were missing in the showers. The swimming pool was dirty and the kiddy pool had lots of broken cement, which can be dangerous for kids. The staff were kind an friendly.

We had lots of rain. A lot of water around. Out in country went to Albert Lea for dinner, about 8 miles away. Easy on and off. Not many 50 amp sites in park.
Jun 19, 2015
Staff rude,restrooms ,showers were dirty,a lot of flies everywhere ,no activities for children,dirty around the park

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The game room was open. We had four inches of rain the night before which made the bathroom muddy due to all the campers. can't help the flies. Camper left fire pit dirty. can't fix the weather either!
