Cabin Reviews

Sep 27, 2015
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.

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.

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.

The floors of the cabin were way too wet. It was if they had mopped right before we arrived it took at least 1 and 1 half hours to dry. Not that any one can control this but the mosquitos were terrible. the game room was dirty and looked as if it had not been used in a while.

Campgrounds well Maintained and bathrooms clean. Well-stocked camp store and helpful staff. It was a hot day when we arrived and there was no air conditioner in our basic cabin. The pool was a nice relief but the pool deck is crumbling around the edges of the kiddie pool. We would stay here again.

Weekend was great. Staff was wonderful!!!

We arrived late, before the office closed, and found the staff were friendly, the price was right and it was pet friendly. However, the cabin had a strong odor of cleaning fluid, we had to air it out about 30 min. before we could enter it, and the strong cleaning fluid odor lingered all night. The bathroom was pretty run down.

Ok, small, not much in campground or area to do with kids. Cabin was nice and clean. The staff working was very nice. Wi-Fi was not working but staff worked on it and got it working. It had rain so the campground was very wet and muddy, with the roads not paved and the grass long, ended carrying four year everywhere because of all the puddles, grass long and wet.

Nice campground, early season so very quiet

I was very disappointed with this KOA site. We had reserved a 2 bedroom cabin but were given a one bedroom cabin. The lock on the bathroom was broken and my daughter became locked in the bathroom. Pet hair everywhere and we are allergic. No coffee maker. I emailed when we arrived home about the one bedroom error. It has been 48 hours and no replay yet.

the staff at austin koa are very friendly and helpful they could probably put some new cushions on the sofa as theres not much padding left on it!! otherwise the cabin is awesome and we go every yr

It certainly was quiet but far from the main route. With a cabin we had to find a meal as we were not prepared to cook. Thanks.

Nice clean nice pool delux camping cabin was nice and clean you what we needed for us and the 4 grandkids. They just needed to check the water heater in the cabin ( no hot water with 4 little ones wasn't very easy) when we left we told them about it. Guess they can't fix it if they don't know about it :)
