Campground Reviews

Jul 28, 2013
While the staff was nice and efficient, this campground doesn't reflect KOA qualities very well. The sites were mud and the roads need to be paved.

Bugs, interstate noise, low lying area for tents, staff was wonderful :)

Very nice level site except the sewer connection is 30 ft behind the midships point of the coach. Can't reach the connection without two sewer sections. Dog poop in the grass wasn't fun to clean off our shoes. People very friendly and facility very clean. Much rain during our stay but very good drainage prevented any ponding at the sites.

The service was good, friendly staff. Too much junk around the check-in counter - the impulsive buyer. Bathroom could use a good cleaning for the top to the bottom. I understand that Kampers can be messy. I'm suggesting that the curtains and screen where the exhaust fan is be cleaned. How can the exhaust fan work properly, if the screen is clogged? Repair leaky water faucets.

Kabin was clean, restrooms immaculate and staff friendly and helpful. Wish we would have had air conditioning, but open windows and a fan cooled the kabin down just fine.

Bathrooms needed updating. Quiet and pleasant.

Campsite was ok, but only had 20 amp service and 2 units shared the circuit so no air conditioning was able to be used by either camper. Road noise was horrible. Lawn mowing camper neighbor at 7:30 am. Nice host though.

Site was spacious, hookups good, TV reception fine. Office folks very pleasant. Dark and quiet at night...just how we like it.

Beautiful park-like atmosphere. We had an 'end' site, so it was even more generous than the others in size. The owner is fantastic--outside working to make the cg clean and enjoyable; and she is soooo friendly and helpful.

We love the Austin KOA! However, please consider introducing a recycling system. I know Austin participates!

Easy on/off freeway. Close to freeway but noice was not bad. Easy driving distance to both Albert Lea and Austin.

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.

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.
