Too expensive all of a sudden this year compared to previous years and new holiday weekend premium fee added to each person per site on top of rate....not too appealing any longer

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm sorry to hear about your displeasure. I checked your reservation log and there were additional charges for the extra adult per night, but not every adult. I'd be happy to chat if you would like to call me back.

We had a great time and enjoyed the hospitality of the new owners. Thanks Paul and Cathy

Park was very clean and pool was great. Large site. Need a bit more levelling though. no gate, but site was safe. Noise from 401 was a bit of a bother. Otherwise nice place to go to.

being new owners to the park it was not as it was with the previous owners Ed & Mary Bryan.All in all it was an okay wknd.Lots of changes but it all takes time.Wishing the new owners the best.We love the KOA in Brighton so hoping all goes well.

We love staying at this KOA! To make my stay 'great', I would recommend stricter rules around pets. We dealt with a lot of barking through the weekend. This is no reflection on the campground itself, which is wonderful!
May 19, 2015
Great weekend. Or kids had a blast with the heated pool, wagon rides, craft, scavenger hunts, and fireworks.

The only this was the after 10pm quiet time was not enforced

Had a great trip!

New onwers this year so it was a different 'feel' as we had gotten quite used for Ed and Mary.. but the new owners were certainly nice and friendly. They did make an error on my reservation and over charged me but i went down the next day and they happily fixed it. Wasnt too happy with the price of fire wood going up AND the price of the daily site rate up as well quite a bit!

Fantastic customer service!!
May 19, 2015

It was great! Good campground.

I stayed at this KOA from May 15 to 18, 2015. The park is very clean and well maintained. The staff are friendly and helpful. The pool and two playgrounds are great for the kids. They loved the scavenger hunt. My only negative comment would be that the staff should monitor the park for a brief period after the quiet hours. Loud large group with teenagers running thru park all night.

Thank you for your comment. Catching up with those kids to ask them to get back to their sites was good exercise for me. :) We will look at having double the staff walking through the park at night in future.

We loved our weekend at the Brighton KOA - we had a great time and we were impressed with the new owners. Considering this was their first weekend, there was a lot that could have gone wrong, but they were on top of everything - the bathrooms were clean, and there was always someone in a yellow shirt to help us out. On a side note, the bathrooms really need an upgrade!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you! We agree, we've made a few improvements to the lower washrooms behind the store and are looking at our budget for the upper ones either this year or next year, but it's on our radar for sure!
May 19, 2015
The staff were very friendly. The whirlpool needed some chemicals for sure as it was cloudy and had a smell. WOW - the fireworks were amazing!!! All in all, a great place to stay! :)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comment. The sun tan lotion causes it to go cloudy very quickly but we will make sure to monitor it more often in future. Thanks for the suggestion.

Really clean, owners are very friendly. Lots of stuff to do with the kids.

The staff was very friendly but the road noise was terrible. We found that it was grossly overpriced and we will only stay in KOA if we have no other choice, you prices are to high.
May 15, 2015
Efficient, friendly service! Great place to camp!
May 13, 2015
Campground was good but the wifi weak which is a problem in many KOA campgrounds.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comments. We have installed a new internet system since purchasing the campground and will continue to work on improving this as this was a complaint of ours in our travels to other campgrounds as well.

We had a great time. Our son loved the playgrounds and the pool. Very clean park.
May 12, 2015
We were a group of 6 trailers/family and friends.Sites and grounds very neat/clean.Staff-very friendly and went out of their way to accommodate our needs and questions. Job well done our your behalf, Thank you very much.
May 12, 2015
The park is great. New management has a lot to learn. We reserved site B1 last October. We were bumped off of it and it remained empty entire weekend. Night security was non existent.
May 11, 2015
Great weekend. New owners are running a smooth operation. Can't wait for our next visit.
May 11, 2015
The park was clean. Our sites were fairly level but a bit of a slope out the door. Easy access to back in. New management were friendly and welcoming. More than likely camp here again, but maybe try a pull through site next time.
May 11, 2015
Very friendly staff. Nice grounds. Close to durham.
May 11, 2015
Always a pleasure staying at the Brighton KOA.
May 11, 2015
We had a blast and it was great that the dog could come with us! We stayed in a Kabin and it was comfy, clean and we were very happy that there was a fan because it turned out to be a very hot weekend in May! Our only real complaint was that the Wifi was extremely slow, couldn't get to a website before it timed out BUT we weren't there to be attached to our devices so it was ok! Thanks!
May 11, 2015
Great people great park very clean good campsites

helpful and courteous staff, clean site.
May 11, 2015
Extremely helpful staff and very friendly.
May 11, 2015
The owners and staff were wonderfully helpful. The grounds are well maintained and the atmosphere there was fun. It's very dog friendly and had a lot of things for kids to do. Even thou the 491 is near by, you're so into the joy of camping you don't notice it. We will be back!
May 11, 2015
Nice spot. Little more raid noise than I usually like but nice.
May 11, 2015
We love this campground we use to be seasonal there . It was nice to meet the new owners I think they will do great very nice and friendly. Sites could use gravel but I know all this will take time but it would be nicer than the sand they have now Had a great weekend
May 11, 2015
We always enjoy our stay at Brighton KOA. Staff is friendly and curtious. They offered for us to leave our trailer there since we are back for the long weekend and was able keep the same site. Was very convenient for us having 3 little kids.
May 11, 2015
Had a great weekend except for the site beside us that had 3 dogs on it that went balistic every time a dog walked by. Also, the 2 sites behind them didn't have their dogs on leashes, so of course mine didn't want to be on hers either. Our dog ended up staying inside all weekend except very early & very late when the others went inside.

Thank you for your comment and I am sorry if it put a damper on your weekend. We will keep an eye on this in the future.

quiet, clean, friendly

A perfect weekend, the owners and staff are friendly and personable, their service to us was second to none. I had been worried about 401 noise before arriving but with the KOA location on top of a hill and the tree placement and natural bush placement hillside, noise was minimal if at all. Thank you very much for a peaceful stay. Sincerely Mike & Angie

Enjoyed our stay as the staff and owners respected that people like the piece and quiet that camping should be . They also tried to explain the new system that seems to try and divide KOA members into slots and restrict them from some camp grounds because of length of stay
