Ken and Iris are fabulous hosts! We had a great time. The grounds were very clean and decorated very well for the holiday.

We stayed in a cabin on a cool fall night. The heater was great and kept us warm. Although it rained we stayed dry inside. Campground was nice and quiet and had great access to the beach. A wonderful weekend get-away. Thanks.

Ken & Iris are terrific hosts and make your stay very special. This is our second time with them and we were not disappointed. Very clean campgrounds and cabin. A definite place to relax in the quiet friendly atmosphere. Great activities for kids too! Be sure to make this one of your KOA stops!!!!

I stayed in a camping Kabin this stay and lovrd it. Everyone at Bay Center, Iris and Kenny Shupe, were wonderful, as always. As I told them, KOA has saved me $15 to $17K. I am not buying a trailer, just staying in your Kabins. The visit was wonderful and had a great time.

We had planned a family weekend but husband ended up unable to accompany us so it was just me and the 2 children (first time by ourselves). Everyone was very helpful and accommadating. The children loved finding shells on the beach, the play ground and the savanger hunt. We were a little sad that we were a weekend too late for the root beer floats :( Hope to come back next summer.

It was nice and quite place, well organized and staff is very friendly. We loved the beach especially and game room with lot of games and list of activities offered by staff. Our cabin however was way too close to other cabin, which created some discomfort in being forced to deal with complete strangers throughout the day, especially when your neighbors may not particularly friendly people.

Our stay was great! Kabin 4 was very clean as were the public areas and restrooms! The hosts did a great job with kids activities, banana bike rentals, and root beer float social! Thank you!

Beautiful quiet setting away from it all. A very well maintained KOA. A pleasure to meet Ken and Iris, the owners, who won the 2013 Presidential Award from KOA. Thank you Ken and Iris for your hospitality.

My daughter stayed and had a horrible time. She feels that because her finance was black, the other campers were starring at her, wouldn't talk to her unless Sean wasn't around. They went to a resturaunt, where service was slow and rude comments were made. They left a day early, which I want a refund for. I thought we were away from prehistoric times people! I believe the staff treated them ok.


We are sorry that your daughter and her fiancé did not have a good stay. Our staff treats every guest with the same respect on the campground. The experience at the restaurant is not appropriate, but as the restaurant is not associated with the campground it was out of our control.

clean bathrooms friendly hosts

Well kept grounds, clean restrooms/showers, and very friendly and helpful staff. My only disappointment was the cabin we stayed in was only really equipped to sleep four and I had reserved for five under the assumption that the cabin configuration was 3 single beds and a double bed. Instead it was 2 singles and 1 double so one of us ended up sleeping on the floor.

We stayed in a cabin. It was cozy, clean and very pleasant. The site is well kept. Bathrooms were cleaned regularly. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. They have daily activities for the kids. We also enjoyed raking for clams which is just off the site.

What wonderful amenities and service! It's so friendly and great for kids! I highly recommend this location!

Great campground, close to the beach (not a great swimming beach but at low tide you can find shells and other treasures!) Very clean and well kept. The staff were amazing, very friendly and accommodating! It is kind of remote, closest gas station is about 25-30miles away but we loved how quiet it was!

I had a easy carefree stay in a cozy heated camping cabin. Easy Access to the beautiful bay and its beach are the highlight of this KOA.

Friendly greeting. Very quiet location near the beach, although kind of remote. You can go clamming with a shellfish license. However, my mom was told that we could take our time checking out of our cabin, and at 12:05 they asked us when we were leaving, even though we were obviously loading the car. Yes, we were late, but my mom had understood it to be ok. I was disappointed in that treatment.


Our check out time is noon and our check in time is 1:00. In order to have a clean cabin available for our arriving guests, it is not possible to provide a later checkout when we have guests waiting to check in.

We really enjoyed the Kabin we rented. It was nice! My son had fun, just wish there were more kids and a better playground. The bathrooms were nice and clean and my husband appreciated the dish washing sink.

We love this KOA. It is well run. Iris and Ken are fabulous hosts. We will definitely return.

The cabin was roomy for my family of 4 and there was lots of things to keep the kids busy. What really made our stay wonderful was the staff. They are hard working and very friendly to us and the kids. We will definitely return next summer.
