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.

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!

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.

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.

We have stayed at this location for the past six years. The management has failed to make improvements outside of adding a couple cabins. There are limited sites suitable for big rigs and they have not maintained the interior roads or site pads. This location desperately needs to be upgraded to meet KOA standards.

nice rest rooms, high commercial toilets with elongated seats,lots of room in the showers. long pull through sites. unlike the kennebeck,sd koa. I didn't like that place at all.they shouldn't even be a koa. crummy cheap small toilets, small sites,no privacy in the small showers. they rip you off with their high prices in the snack bar.

I would have like if they had an enclosed dog area.

The staff was extremely friendly however the roads and spaces could use a load of gravel. The heavy rain made almost all the roads a mud pit. Very messy.
