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

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

The camping cabin smelled like pee. I would have appreciated a marker to know where to park my car, the cabin next to us too the spot where I think I was supposed to park.

From the moment we checked in to check out. I've never experienced the kind of disrespect and rudeness from staff in all my travels. Very disappointed with our stay.Every time I turned around staff was rude and short with not only myself, but my son and friend, and their kids. I also got charged a $25 cleaning fee for not removing the garbage bag from our cabin..even when I swept and cleaned cabin

Stayed in cabin. Fire pit was huge. Had to step into it to make a fire. Bathrooms were older but clean.

We stayed during a heat wave and the Kamping Kabins don't have air conditioning. Everything was moist from the humidity and we asked to upgrade to a lodge last minute - the hosts were so friendly about it and the lodge was excellent. Air conditioning, a microwave and our own bathroom.

The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The camp cabin was clean and pleasant. There is a problem with wetness and mud after rain. The ground stays saturated. Also lots of bugs.

Decent. Cheap but adequate playground. Owners are courteous but not all workers were

My kids and I had a wonderful time with way more to do on site than we had anticipated. So pleasantly surprised!

Very clean and nice. Pool needs some fixing up and some safety features on the bunk beds. But very friendly staff and easy to find.

It was good. The only thing is that the firewood burned to fast.

We had a fabulous time for our girls weekend!! The cabins are clean, staff is polite and accommodating, and pool was spacious and kept up. We'll definitely be back!

Would have been better to describe as gas grills at dlx cabin. linens were only thing said needed. There are no pots pans or other kitchen tools at all either. pool grate, staff nice and clean grounds.

The staff is great and campsites are clean and beautiful. All of the activities for the kids make it the destination spot for my family.

From the arched tree entry to the exceptional camping facility, this stay was great the entire time. What a nice surprise.

Wasn't able to get away from home until late. Arrived at 11 p.m., and truly appreciated having a map, a key, and a light on to help me find the cabin. The ease of booking a stay and the decent accommodations convinced me to return there on my way back home.

The facilities are clean and very accessible. All the staff were kind and helpful. And even though we arrived just past closing time, the staff still there welcomed us warmly.

Stayed in a cabin which was very dirty. If it hadn't been late at night when I arrived I would've found some place else! Showers were very dated.

We stayed in a deluxe cabin -wonderful! We grilled out on the gas grill, are on the shaded patio and enjoyed the porch swing! Great experience

It was a great campground. Just a nice get away. We stayed 4 nights. It was our base camp. State parks are close. Many lakes. Put our kayaks in at Fountain Lake and fished. Road our bikes on many of the trails around town. Camp ground had a walking trail. Not well advertised but good place to stretch your legs after a long trip. Very dog friendly. Down side was highway close by. Fantastic.

Nice place to stay.

It was a fun over night outing. Friendly people, nice pool. We stayed in a camping cabin. The screen door didn't close tight which allowed bugs easier access. (Not a big deal.) It was a pleasant experience overall.

Very very friendly staff. From the moment we drove in, we were greeted with a smile and wave. Right near the highway but the noise didn't bother us. I didn't like the mud in many areas. The beds were comfy for cabin beds. It is located in a nice Midwestern setting with trees and fields around. Pool was nice though a little inconvenient to the rest of the camp.

Great deluxe cabin - clean, lovely big deck, not facing any neighbours in an obtrusive way, great pool (and clean!!!) our kids loved the playground. Very friendly staff and cute camp store.

Our family reunion with about 40+ people was a success and so fun. Everyone enjoyed the pool. The cabin worked great for us.

Great KOA. We enjoyed our stay again.
Aug 03, 2015
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!

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.
