Dusty, noisy location. After a heavy rainfall, drainage was an issue. You can't change the location, but can do something about the other 2 issues.

Very well kept campground with nice large sites. Owners were very friendly and helpful. an unexpected treat we had was a local band performed at the campground one evening, very enjoyable. we camped in a 40ft motorhome, easy in and out. Only negative was the noise from nearby I-90.

it was an easy campground to get to off the interstate; people were very friendly and they have a great pool to cool off in!

Our family really enjoys the campground. Lots to do for the kids too. I would like to see the pool temp increased just a bit, it is pretty cold for all ages. Thanks

The staff at this KOA were absolutely wonderful! The went above and beyond to make sure my stay was easy and comfortable. The bathrooms were always clean and the pool was great! I would definitely recommend staying here if you are visiting the Austin/Albert Lea area.

ok, not great! Swimming pool not in a convenient location. It was far from most of the campground. Bath rooms were clean, but a little dated. For the $ spend KOA should be 5 star, but unfortunately most of them are not.

This was a very nice place to stay. The cabin was so clean we could smell the cleaner when we came in. The beds were nice and comfortable and the bathrooms were within fairly easy reach of the cabin. I would definitely stay again.

My wife has a skin condition that does not allow a lot of exposure to the sun. We were assigned a site that did not have any shade trees. When I explained my issue with the site, the management was very happy to give us a beautiful site with lots of trees and my wife was a very happy camper. Keep up the great work. Al Walls

Convenient location. Easy in and out. Friendly staff. Very limited walking area. Treed roadway from main road needs to be sprayed for bugs; it is uninhabitable. Need an enclosed K9 park vs the un-kept Dog Walk.

Of all the KOA's I've stayed at this rates right up there in the top 10. Great campground, nice sites, awesome staff.

It rained the night we stayed and the ground became soft and our tent collapse and we left early. The staff was nice and helpful at check in. A little noisy because it is close to the highway. They seem to have a lot of activities to do.

This park had dirt roads and when wet turned to mud. I would think that is not up to KOA Standards!

Very pleasant reception at check-in; pleasant and helpful staff;

We often need a clean place with a pull-through to overnight on our way through to/from Sioux Falls, and this place works great for that. The staff is friendly and responsive, and accommodates late check-ins quite well.

Nothing for the kids to do outside of the pool.(Chilly when we arrived)Bathroom stalls did not lock and showers need updating and cleaning. When it rains the whole camp turns to giant mud puddle. There is no scenery and WIFI does not work. After staying 2 KOA in SD that week this was very disappointing. We left first thing in the morning.

Very clean campground! Staff was very friendly & helped with any question we had!

There was only one staff member that was friendly. The campground itself was ok. It did rain and the roads and sites were terribly messy. They could use some more gravel. The pool water was dirty. The basketball hoop is a portable one that is set up by a gravel road that is busy traffic area. Not impressed for the high price to stay here. Will not go back. Wish I would have gone somewhere else.

Small campground just off I-90 and not far from I-35. Cute with lots of trees and shade in a rural setting. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Nice place to spend a day or two while on the road.
