could not get an itemized receipt for my stay, at check out. This day and age I figured that was a doable request. Maybe just a training issue I would assume you system can accommodate this. Otherwise the stay was great.

The best campground yet. Clean friendly but of all the rest is the fact that Mike and Shirley and manager Rhonda are so friendly and are about making your stay the best. The owners are so hands on with everything makes it even better because it almost gives the sense that you feel like family. 35 plus years I've been coming and by far the best one my family has experienced. Definitely coming back

It was a nice clean place,the staff was nice and helpful. There was a DJ on Saturday night and the kids just love going up to the pavilion to dance, It would have been nice to have something on one of the other nights too being it a holiday weekend you have to stay 3 nights so having some sort of entertainment 2 of those night would have been great. No complaints just that suggestion.


We did have entertainment 2 out of the 3 nights. Movie on Friday night and DJ on Saturday night. Firetruck rides on Friday, Saturday & Sunday.

One of the cleanest camp grounds I've ever been to. Rhonda does a great job. Breakfast was yummy! The bees were busy drilling holes in our cabin, and they were a nuisance anytime you went in & out the door there were 10 or more, and wood dust all over the porch

Very family friendly with lots of activities for the children to do. We had a great weekend when we stayed in a cabin. Thank you KOA!

Little upset bc I had a donation item which you didn't want to take when we checked in on Friday. Well Saturday came we were gone most of the day and forgot to give you the item in the morning. I would have taken the item while the giver remembers bc as you know people forget. Maybe next year!

No heat in cabin. Checked out day early manager didn't even offer to refund the unused day. Cabin and patio was not swept out prior to our arrival. First time I've ever been disappointed with Koa.

Very nice camp ground ! We asked if we could up grade from a tent site to a cabin and they took care of it with no problem . Rest rooms were super clean !

I found the overall layout and thought for the "guests" to be lacking. We stayed in the cabin. It was not clean with considerable dust on the fan and windows. Compared to other KOAs there were minimal cabin features. The Girl bathroom is on the back of the building on a road which is a safety risk and they parked campers in front limiting visibility more. The staff was stand-offish during our stay

Check in staff gave us wrong information,jumper,golf,and bikes were open until dark closed @5:00pm.staff didn't give wrist band. employee didn't know price of mini golf didn't have change. Events were scheduled but, not where to get hayride was from 6-9 and 7:45 went to office to ask,got rude/yelled at me. Told me not to come back to CG. Jumper was suppose to open @10am wasn't. Overpriced and rude

Clean facilities and friendly staff. Had a great time!

We had a amazing time .. one suggestion.. you had a man dressed as a gorilla on Saturday who worked for you ...,who would run up to the kids and pick them up and running away with them ... we heard on the haunted hay ride a lot of parents who were very upset by this .. and there children were in tears .. I understand he was probably just playing around .. but maybe a little to far ??

What a wonderful experience! We stayed in a camping cabin for 3 nights. The cabin was well equipped, clean, and a perfect size for our family of 5. We enjoyed campfires every night, grilled our dinners, played in the game room, did the gem mining, so many activities! Close enough to go to Columbus for the day. Really great place.

We stay at this KOA approximate 2 to 3 times a year. It is clean and has a lot of activities for kids. The camping cabins are nice for a quick easy getaway. Unfortunately there was a very large group of teenage girls screaming throughout the evening which took away from the peacefulness of our trip. This has not been our experience in the past staying there so we will return. It would have bee

Excellent, modern facility, they have the system down pat. Everything from checking in to navigating the area was made easy. Staff was really professional.

The interrogation at the front desk, the $100 key deposit, the fact that there are 2 tv's in less then 300 square feet but the cabin lacked bedside tables and lamps or a coffee table. The price was not a value for what was offered. The water pressure in the shower was a fine mist. I was very disappointed in my first KOA stay.
Oct 03, 2016
It was clean and maintained. However, I was disappointed that a group of cheerleaders were put right next to us.

The campground was very clean, including the cabins and restrooms. It exceeded our expectations and we will definitely be using this campground again next year!

Nice staff cozy van n and a great dog park
Oct 01, 2016
Stay was great, it was quite at night which is a plus when you will be busy the next day! This was our 1st time cabin stay and it was a good stay!
Sep 30, 2016
Staff is wonderful! Nice & clean! Stayed in a cabin very nice! Thank you!
Sep 30, 2016
The only real issue we had was that the bathrooms are so far away.

Thanks for a great stay


It was our Pleasure!

I had a good stay, but enjoyed it better last year when I had a cabin toward the back of the campground & it was quieter. I'll most probably be back next September & will be sure to ask about that when I make my reservation.

I didnt like how we were put right in the front in cabin 1. We felt like we had no privacy. Other than that is was very clean and nice and we enjoyed ourselves.
Sep 26, 2016
Aleays clean and friendly!!
Sep 26, 2016
Had a wonderful stay, would go back anytime.

Loud drunk men beside our cabin the first night. Tried to contact someone; number was "disconnected." Next morning, manager was defensive. He was accusatory towards me rather than sympathetic and apologetic.Next night was quiet though, so problem resolved.
Sep 26, 2016
They staff was great and friendly. the cabin was extra clean. The main thing that upset is was that we were told we couldn't bring our dog (which is a pit boxer mix) and when we got there there was a full blooded pit three cabins down from us and a Brendal mix pit somewhere else in the facility. maybe they should check a little better at check in for dogs that they claim aren't allowed.

Love staying here!! Perfect for families!!!

We enjoyed our stay very much. We stayed in a two room cabin that was clean and very nice. Our site was perfect and made for a very relaxing weekend.
Sep 24, 2016
It was terrible. Loud neighbors partying until 3 am. Attempted to call the front desk with no answer. Requested a refund and she refused on account of us not leaving a message. Rhonda, the manager was extremely rude and unapologetic about our experience. I definitely would NOT recommend this KOA.
Sep 19, 2016
Most of the staff was friendly, Sammy and Rhonda are the two I remember. But there was one man, who I believe to be an owner/upper management, was extremely rude and treated our group extremely poorly. They advertise as a good bachelor party spot, but they treated us poorly because we were a bachelor party.


We do not advertise a good bachelor spot in any of our advertising. In fact when we found out the reason you were staying, you were informed of quiet hours. We received complaints and even refunded a customer because of it!

What a wonderful campground! Very clean and the grounds and building s well maintained. My only gripe is the screen door in our cabin didn't have an inside handle so We found it extremely hard to close it. Also would have been nice to be a little closer to the bath house. Other than that, awesome

Nice, clean, quiet campground. Best campground I have ever stayed in. Only thing I didn't like was spraying for mosquitos before midnight while we were sitting by camp fire. Should be done later into the night or very early in the morning. Other than that it was a great stay.


We pay the Health Dept to spray every Thurs night to spray.It has to be done at dusk when they are at their peak and before 11 o'clock quiet hours because the sprayer on the truck is noisy. A sign on our front door of our store let campers know about the spraying.

We had a wonderful weekend! Our grandkids visited and had a great time. There were many fun activities to participate in.
Sep 07, 2016
We stayed in a deluxe cabin ... I did notice that the curtains needed washed or replaced (very dusty) & lots of broken blinds too. It could use a good overall scrubbing but it was okay for us. We would still recommend it & come again in the future. Enjoyed our stay for sure!
