I could not tune in the local tv stations. This was negative. The people were nice. I would have liked to be able to watch tv though. There were no tracts or literature telling me about boating, or visiting the spam mauseum, etc.. There were some stuff on the sheet they gave us but we would have liked more. The pool was not up and runnung even though the weather is warm now, 80 2x last week.

In spite of some early spring maintenance the people at this KOA do a great job of keeping the grounds and rest rooms clean and up to a high standard.

Thank you for helping us with a lower rate when our car broke down in Minneapolis!

The campground was right off the interstate. You take a blacktop county road to get there. The staff was very friendly. We received four inches of rain and the campground held up well.

Host family was extremely welcoming! They put on a great Halloween Weekend celebration - even allowed my husband to be part of the Haunted Hayride "scare crew".

This Campground has amazing owners and great staff. They really make you feel welcome and at home and strive to make your stay the best it can be. My camping experience here was so good that I have reserved a seasonal site for next year. I would recommend this Campground to anyone.

Very nice place and hosts.

We were in late and out early. Looks like a very nice campground and we would stay again. Owner/Manager helped us out at opening the next morning, Thank You. Our site (58) did have a lot of dark wet dirt (low spot)that tracked a lot of dirt into our camper. A little gravel would go a long way. Thanks for being open as long as you were.

The stay was just great. We called for a reservation and the person who answered was not experienced to handle reservations

Nice campground, has a dog park. I stayed in deluxe cabin, was worth every penny to have a bathroom and microwave. Really nice staff.

This KOA is clean and the staff friendly. Very nice facility. Unfortunately we had a neighbor whose small dogs barked constantly whenever we were outside. They left the windows open on their camper while gone. I'm a dog person and we travel with two ourselves, but when gone, we turn on the AC, close the shades, and turn on the radio so they are quiet. Perhaps a tip on arrival to pet own

Our stay ws very enjoyable.

Area has had excess rainfall so sites were muddy. Hopefully will be dried up for our next visit.

Nice folks. Park is easy to drive around. Pull throughs are large and level combination of gravel and grass. The location is pretty much in the middle of nowhere, and it is close to the interstate, so there will be traffic noise.

all good

Wi-fi did not work. Water from supply in tent area was filled with sediment.

Loved pet playground. The lodge is quite an improvement over the standard cabin; will try again.

This is a very nice campground that could use some TLC. Sites were great but water pressure was poor. Convenient laundry room that could use some updating. Staff was wonderful. We would stay again.

Very nice. Staff was extremely friendly & helpful. Stayed in basic Kamper Kabin on my way to my destination and they up-graded my reservation to a Kamper Lodge due to weather on my way back home. VERY pleasant experience. Only negative, they do need more signage on the highway for directions. I no problems while using Google Maps prior to my trip.

Restroom/showers were OK. Staff was not very friendly or helpful. It had rained prior to our arrival and the roads and sites were full of puddles. It rained even more during the night. They need to add more gravel to the roads and the camping pads. What a mess.

roads very muddy and full of potholes

Although the campground was very nice, we were disappointed that although their rules say that dogs are not allowed in any buildings, both times we were in the office/store there were at least two dogs running loose. Definitely not appropriate for a store!
