Nice tent sites. Friendly staff. Bathroom and showers need an upgrade. Good WiFi and Coffee. Fire rings at tent sites need cooking grates.

Close to the highway, so the traffic noise was ever present, but this was one of the most well maintained campgrounds I've ever stayed at!

Fantastic pool (deep!) And the place is well maintained... tent area seems extra buggy and lots of traffic noise

Wonderful! Quick check in, friendly staff, peaceful site (we were in a tent), clean bathrooms; a really great break from the road but super close to the highway.

Great hosts .. Loved it and most importantly, I had a restful night.

The owner was nice enough to upgrade me and my friends to a cabin for a night due to a bad incoming storm, we didn't even ask, she completely offered. That cabin was a great help and I am in debt to her kindness and hospitality. I.S.

It is great for a 1 night stopover but wouldn't recommend an extended stay as it is very close to the highway which makes it pretty noisy.

The campground was close to the main building and there was plenty of activities for my two kids. The staff was very helpful in registration and campground setup. A great stay.

Again, a very pleasent stay. Thanks to the great staff!!

This probably has been mentioned but the interstate 90 was close by and the noise left it almost impossible to sleep. The noise being aside it was clean and well maintained but the highway noise will keep me from staying there again. Sorry but I would only leave this as I am sure other campers had the same experience. Thank you.

Very nice place to stop over. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean but somewhat dated bathrooms. Nice swimming pool and playground. LOTS of highway noise made sleeping .

Needs a bit of maintenance. Staff need a bit of training. For example a roll of toilet paper was on the bathroom floor. A staff member cam in to use the facilities, but did nothing to take care of the roll as it was still on the floor a few hours later.

Staff rude,restrooms ,showers were dirty,a lot of flies everywhere ,no activities for children,dirty around the park


The game room was open. We had four inches of rain the night before which made the bathroom muddy due to all the campers. can't help the flies. Camper left fire pit dirty. can't fix the weather either!

Well, at first I couldn't locate the KOA. Just as I was about to check into the Motel 6 in Albert Lea, I found the phone number for the KOA. I called, and the lady I spoke with gave me directions. When I got there she was very friendly. She gave me a tent spot closest to the showers and with NO MOSQUITOS! I can't express enough how nice it is to deal with a friendly person when on a bike/tent trip

Very friendly and helpful staff. We enjoyed the stay very much. Thanks for the great camping experience.

Staff extremely helpful. It had just rained and the campground was LOADED with Mosquitos. Real bad. The area is wooded around and the rain was heavy and therefore very wet .

Bathrooms were dirty, Pool was not clean or looked to have been attended too in forever. Playground was disgusting muddy mess. Dog feces all over the grassy tent area. Park was a complete mess compared to the stay we had a year ago. We will not be coming back

Very friendly owners. They let us pick any spot we wanted. The bathrooms were clean and the showers had hot water. Only downside is the proximity to the Route 90 highway. The traffic was pretty loud all night.

very accomodating to me and my friends. Offered a great deal making it a success for my get together thank you

Beautiful Kamp. They allowed me the "August Biker Special Rate" even though I hadn't been to Sturgis (Maybe next year). Don't miss the Spam Museum! Thanks for a great stay!

The people were so friendly and the showers were bright and clean nice to have a seat outside the shower as well as hooks to hang up your clothes very quiet and we got a very good nights sleep! One of the best KOA's we have stayed at. The sink outside the shower rooms was also a great idea! Tom @ Jane Hess

Staff was friendly, very helpful. Bathroom was immaculate at 9:00 pm. Town meeting hall is a great idea. Tent site was spacious. As with most KOAs, there is road noise.
