This was our first stay at a KOA. We were not even out of our vehicle and we were greeted by smiling faces! After checking in we were escorted to our campsite. The staff is very friendly, helpful and organized. The activities covered all age groups. The campground is very nice, clean and well groomed. We really enjoyed our stay and we will stay again.

Sean was so kind and helpful when our door lock jammed on our camper. Good workers made a great campground even better.

This KOA was the best run KOA I have ever seen. The owners are very nice and the Memorial Day weekend although very busy was fantastic for the kids. They also did a great job honoring the Vets. I would definitely come back. My only negative would be the narrow spaces. Not much room to put out mats and more than 2 lounge chairs.

Friendly staff even when they were monitoring for wristbands on the kids at the pool. The restrooms by the office were great. Wish they all were like those.

Thank you very much!

Wasn't happy with the wristbands and needing the supervision for jumping pillow. I understand for the pool. However my kids are older and it's a 5ft. pool. They wanted money for everything you did there. Just wasn't happy with this KOA as I am with the others I have stayed at.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The wristbands and parent supervision are for the kids' safety.The kids get free jumping pillow all the time, 15 min free on pedal carts, and free game of golf when they camp. We also have free playground, volleyball, basketball, giant checkers and chess, swimming pool and sand pile.

Great hosts. Always checking to make sure your stay is great.

The only potential problem could be placement of the dumping station. If someone is dumping no one can pass.
May 31, 2016
We had a very nice visit. Kids enjoyed themselves and so did the adults. My only suggestion would be to trim the prickly bushes around the cement in the Deluxe site. The little kids were scratched several times

Best park! Very quiet for being full. A lot of activities for children of all ages.
May 31, 2016
This was our first time staying at a KOA and it was wonderful. Everyone was so nice and helpful. We will definitely come back and stay again.
May 31, 2016
Been there several times. Always a great time!
May 31, 2016
Enjoyed our stay very clean most of employees where friendly. But found the cost of everything at the camp grounds to be very expensive. Camp sites are very close together but still enjoyed our stay
May 31, 2016
Very pleasant park. Ladies is the office were terrific. It was a very busy Memorial Day and they handled the crowd well. The one real problem with this park in the entrance/exit. It is very narrow and the dump station is right in the exit path. Must redo that somehow. We sat for over 25 minutes trying to leave behind two rigs dumping :-(!!!!!

I loved how kid and dog friendly this campground is. I loved the dishwashing station. They had so many fun activities to do. We will definitely be back@
May 31, 2016
The owners and staff were very friendly and made the extra effort to see if you needed anything or if they could help in any way. The planned activities were great for the whole family. Lots of things to do and fun for everyone.
May 31, 2016
The campground was neat and the staff was polite and well-organized. The owner was around constantly making sure that kids weren't getting into trouble and were supervised (but not in an unkind way). We stayed with our 16, 12, 9, and 4 year old, and everyone had a blast!

Thank you for your kind words, and we are glad you had a great stay with your kids.

The campground is very nice. Fun things for kids. The cable TV is fuzzy. The WIFI is only 1 device per site. The rates at this KOA are high The reason for the lower rating is the customer service received. The owner is not very friendly at all. He yells at kids all the time. Quite frankly, I'm surprised that he owns a KOA which is geared toward family fun.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had a lost child and we have a procedure that we perform and Mike was trying to get the people out of the pool to search. That was the only time that he yelled, because no one was cooperating.

We came to Go to a graduation party in Zanesville for a nephew. We decided to stay here because it looked like fun for our 3 granddaughters we brought with us. They had an absolute blast!!!! They are already thinking about when the next nephew graduates so they can come back. This is by far one of the most nicest campgrounds we've been to. The staff is simply AMAZING!!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the nice comments and we are glad you and your family had a great stay!

Campground very clean and well kept. Showers very nice. A lot of activities for kids. Staff was friendly except for 1 male staff. At times felt like the staff was patrolling around looking for violations, but were not friendly.

Thanks for helping me with the Dog Show!!

Cramped conditions, too many constraints on activities for children above the age of 13, everything was an up-charge (wi-fi per device, ea. visitor had to pay even if they did not stay the night, ea. hr. you stayed over you had to pay, every child over the allowable 2 you had to pay for) Just not a relaxing pleasant stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You get one free Wifi code per site. Extras are $4.00 each. Visitors are $6.00 each, if they stay less than an hour they are free. The site rate is based on 2 people. Extra adults are $8.00, extra children are $6.00. All this info is on the internet and in our Guest Services Guide at checkin.

Rhonda and her staff were excellent , very professional and accommodating....
May 28, 2016
One of the cleanest campgrounds we have ever stayed in, and we have been camping for many years.
May 28, 2016
People are friendly. Nicely kept up. Only thing I didn't like was we had friends come visit us for a couple hours and we had to pay $6 for each...just to sit at the camp. It was before Memorial Day Weekend, so camp wasn't full. Pool wasn't even open. So $12 dollars was a crazy amount to pay for 2 visitors!!!
May 27, 2016
The staff was great from the moment we pulled in until the last day. Since it was our first time with the travel trailer they helped us back in made sure we where all setup and even dropped off wood for us. One of the staff George, stood out to us the most. So very kind to us and our family. The other campers where friendly and also made us feel welcome to the site. Thank you for all of your hospi

This is one of the friendliest parks I have ever stayed in. All of the staff are great and the customer service is second to none. Park is keep immaculately clean. I will definitely come back whenever I come this way.
May 27, 2016
Very nice lots of things for the kids to do but a little pricey.
May 26, 2016
The campgrounds were beautiful and well kept. All of the staff were friendly and made you feel welcomed. Can't wait to go back
May 25, 2016
Great RV park
May 25, 2016
Would have been better if posts had been marked better. Too low...needed a flag on them or remove them as they really don't serve any purpose other than running into them unfortunately. Beautiful campground otherwise and would spend more time there.
May 24, 2016
internet not good, but otherwise a great stop.
May 24, 2016
Great as usual! My 2nd stay.
May 23, 2016
very clean quite place to stay
May 23, 2016
This is the best KOA I have stayed. the people are awesome, the sites are big and all have nice pads, with swings and picnic tables. Lots of area for pets to play and be curbed. Staff was on hand all the time, and always riding the ground checking on things. Had security at night until 10.. just an awesome KOA!
May 23, 2016
We have a permanent camper site-so obviously we love it. We actually rent other sites for our kids so we can all camp together. We love the owner Mike, and their manager Rhonda!
May 23, 2016
This campground has greatly improved since the last time we were here 20-some years ago. Very nice, very clean, very friendly and very helpful!
