We stay here often. Somewhat disappointed with this trip. There was some trash at our site and though the cable/satellite reception is usually poor, it was extremely bad this weekend. Otherwise this is a great place to stay!

Pretty area, we were just traveling through so did not visit lake, just spent the Night. Had unexpected expense of $4 a device to be able to get WiFi for my laptop and spouses cell phone. This is first time I have encountered this in over a year of staying at KOA S. It is mentioned in brochure I got at check in, but not when reservation was made. Pretty setting.

Sit was small and uneven but since the place was empty, we didn't have any neighbors. Staff was friendly and restrooms clean.

We have been staying in KOA campgrounds most of our 2-month vacation. We stopped late one stormy evening at this one for the night only. We had to pay $74 just to sleep and leave the next morning. I don't think that's fair. Yes, there are many activities there for a family, but we have no children and were setting up and going to sleep. We didn't use anything but water and electric.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Customer arrived without a reservation and stayed in a Deluxe Patio Site. They could have saved money by making a reservation and also could have had just a water & electric site.

We've paid way less money and stayed at way nicer KOAs. Extremely overpriced.
Aug 17, 2016
One of my top three KOA's on this trip. Want to go back and revisit.

They were very accommodating on our late arrival. Mike stayed late and escorted us to our site at 9PM. Made our anniversary very special by receiving flowers for my wife. Thanks again Mike & Shirley for a great stay...Top notch.

Everything was great except the back 40 showers. They were clean but the shower curtain was awful.
Aug 16, 2016
Was charged 100 dollars extra for two kids. I told up front I had them and paid in full yet I still had to pay more when I got there. Nothing added up!
Aug 16, 2016
big camping site for our vehiches, clean large restrooms and showers,great people awsome campground,i will definetly camp here again!!! thanks john
Aug 16, 2016
Sites were set up face to face and close together. Because of mopar Nats we had to book for three nights and site cost were increased. do not know if I would stay again during special event weeks. Clean park.

Always a great stop. Clean, lots of amenities, friendly staff! We make it a point to stop there if we are going through.
Aug 15, 2016
We always have a great time here! Very nice campground. My kids loved making necklaces but wished ice cream social was still around.
Aug 15, 2016
Always comfortable, safe & accommodating. Our only complaint would be about adjoining Campers respecting each other's tranquility at night: loud & crossing our campsite.
Aug 15, 2016
Great accommodations and friendly staff! Will be returning!

Very well clean very well organized very well laid out Great food and cook on premises Lots of activities for the kids to do I like to see the price of firewood go down from seven dollars to five dollars
Aug 15, 2016

Aug 15, 2016
Over priced and way too tight
Aug 15, 2016
I was only there one night it was ok
Aug 15, 2016
Stay was great very quiet but have never stayed at a campground where our guest had to pay $6.00 to visit that was ridiculous if we stay again will warn guest NOT to come visit and we will warn other potential campers if this rule

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Campers are explained the visitor policy when they make a reservation, it is also in the confirmation that is sent, and then again when checking in. So guests are aware of our visitor policy before staying with us.

Had a great time, the staff are all courteous and very helpful. Facilities are clean and well kept. I will be back next year.
Aug 13, 2016
Short, but great. Staff were excellent!!!

This was our very 1st trip ever, and Rhonda, George & Larry and everyone were so friendly and helpful to a pair of "newbies". Plus, it was so nicely wooded and clean. We intend to stay there again on our way home!
Aug 10, 2016
Nice very friendly people great location close to the lake and the highway many wooded level sites very clean Campground
Aug 10, 2016
Close to the highway and local attractions but still very quiet and it felt so secluded in the trees. A lovely campground. Staff was top notch, friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend it!

Thank you for your nice comments!

We love this campground. This is our 3rd time stopping here on way through. Large site for our rig. Clean RR. Very comfortable. A+
Aug 08, 2016
Nice park and well maintained, but priced so much more expensive than other KOA parks?
Aug 08, 2016
We stayed for 10 days and both weekends were packed with activities. Our sites were shaded, which was nice for the hot weather, and long for the big rigs. Great swimmimg pool and other ateas of entertainment for children.
Aug 08, 2016
Very good time spent at the campground. Spenty for kids to do.

Nice stay, but very expensive for visitors. We live close by and 6$ per person seems a bit , especially for families for just a few hours...close to the cost of a full stay.
Aug 08, 2016
Your site compared to others was credible, however charging guests who arrive at 6PM is deploreable and embarassing. What are you charging them for, the right to drive on the road?

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Everyone who is not registered, is a guest and pays a guest fee. If they stay less than 1 hour it is refunded. This is the only way to monitor the campground. Visitors have full use of the campground & are covered by our insurance should they get hurt.

The owner was very rude and unwilling to listen. He accused me of "forcing" entry into the pool then proceeded to give my family dirty looks as he cleaned the pool. The pool opens at 9am, we arrived at 9:50a and headed into the pool area. Yes, the gate was harder then I figured it should of been to get in, but the lock was not used correctly. I don't think we'll be coming back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The swimming pool had a lock on it. When something has a lock on it and you get inside that would be forcing your way in. When something is locked you should ask if it can be opened. No one gave anyone dirty looks. We lock the pool the same way, every day...Hard to open because it was locked!
Aug 08, 2016
The only disappointment we had was the internet access, only one item could be connected per site. With the number of people with laptops, smart phones, Ipads, etc. we found that an inconvenience.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Campers receive 1 FREE internet access code per stay.If campers want more connections, the charge is $4.00 for each.

Your campground was nice and clean. I think that it is wrong to not allow barn beams and construction wood scraps for fire. I don't move bark covered wood. Camping is for fires. I don't like to be forced into buying your wood or having to hide mine for use. Add a few more activities for kids on Saturday. I will come back when the wood policy is changed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Lots of times when we allow campers to bring their own firewood, there is planks and pieces of wood with nails in them. For safety reasons, we don't want our employees to have to clean out firepits with nails in them. Our firewood policy stands as it is. Sorry you will not be returning.
