Great place to get away. So many things to do close by. Return home to the sounds of the river for a great night's sleep.

1. NOT BIG RIG FRIENDLY 2. NO WASTE WATER HOOKUPS AT SITES. 3. BATHROOMS ARE NEW BUT ONLY 2 SHOWERS,TOILETS,SINKS. TOO SMALL FOR SIZE OF CG. 4. INTERIOR ROADS AND SITES REQUIRE GRAVEL TO KEEP DUST DOWN. 5. IDEAL FOR SMALL CLASS C RIGS AND TENTS. 6. THE DUMP STATION WAS NOT DESIGNED BY ANYONE FAMILIAR WITH CG DUMPS. YOU CAN NOT GET ANY CLOSER TO THE INPUT THEN 12 FEET. GOOD LUCK!THIS CG IS NOT

location was great. Staff was mediocre, internet sucked. Several people in our group had to drive to town to do computer work, contact friends, check weather, etc. We very much missed Cynthia who was on staff last year.

The work you have put in to the campground is wonderful, just beautiful. We loved the stay other then a few late, late noisey neighbors. It was a perfect stay. Can't wait to come back. Only one thought; I wish there were stairs going into the bath house along with the ramp.

Beautiful location, nice staff. Some amenities are inadequate especially Internet but are slowly being upgraded.

It's not bad, but there is some road noise. Our tent site was small with a sloped tent pad. Other sites were better but they were not cooperative in switching us. The Wifi was so slow as to be unusable even to check e-mail.

Great accommodations and very good prices. It is close to town, but still feels like camping. I love the fact that it is by the river.

The actual campsites were not cared for. A simple visit every couple of days would improve the chances that new customers would not arrive to a totally messy dirty site (i'm not referring to natural dirty). The new bathhouse is nice (only thing nice). Road noise is very loud, I heard the desk person describe over phone as secluded. No Wi-Fi at all, advertising it is simply lying. Dishonest place

Staff was very nice and helpful. Grounds were nicely maintained. Bathhouse clean. Rack mounted on shower wall above reach of any average height woman. Need to lower rack. And add 1-2 hooks on the shower wall for pants/jackets. I was forced to put everything on little stool so some items fell on floor and got wet. Need trash can outside door for TP used to open door after washing hands.

We really enjoyed our stay at this KOA. The Staff were excellent and very helpful. This KOA has the right stuff to become a GREAT place to stay. They were in the process of adding outdoor activities for campers of all ages. The only areas I can see that could use some help would be a few more shower stalls and a better sign to indicate where to turn if coming from the Redstone area.

For us this was luxury camping. Clean bathrooms with flush toilets, warm water & showers. Swimming pool, sports courts, tot lot ... all in excellent condition. Pleasant and helpful staff. We had three days of relaxation and fun.

I love the quiet, peaceful setting of the campground. The sites are roomy and all have lovely nature views. The property is clean and people are friendly.

new pads, new bathhouse, and our site right next to the river made it wonderful! They are new to KOA so still need the site dumps, activities, etc. but we still Loved it

Beautiful location right on Crystal River. But we were not given the spot we reserved next to our friends because the KOA inspectors were coming in and they were given our spot since they were "special" . We didn't appreciate that at all. The internet service was very slow, even at the office. But people were friendly. Wish the sewer was in but the worker came around often.

Right on the river. Will make plans for a return trip.

Great staff. Great stay. Cable tv had separate 5 dollar charge but didnt wotk very good with snowy pictures it was first stay at rv site with this brand new RV so we were not sure it was the RV or connection. But subsequent stays showed it was the cable connection at the campground.

Fantastic. Trying to figure out how soon I can return. Clean, comfortable and exceptional service. Beautiful location right on Crystal River.

Jan is great!

I was quite disappointed with this KOA. It was our least favorite on our 5 stop camping trip. No sewer, wifi, playground (under construction), shower at bathhouse ran cold and they were not able to keep our family (3 sites) close even though we made reservations 2 months in advance.

booked 6 weeks ahead. We asked to be put together with 1 tent and 2 trailers were spread all over the site. No wifi, play ground not working, missed entrance twice because of poor signage and overgrown shrubs. Nice location only saving grace,

This campground had positives and negatives. For positives: nice bike path just outside the campground (great for kids and family rides), extremely friendly staff, and new facilities, including the shower house and laundry room. Negatives: too close to busy road, two shower stalls, no dish washing area, poor internet signal.

Nice cg. Very friendly staff and helped find us a place to stay so we could go to vet with our sick dog.

Everything was perfect.....the only thing that I can think of was that there was no bar of soap in the bathroom...but no problem, just a small purchase in town. Would definitely stay there again! Clean, comfortable and very friendly staff!

Site was beautiful, right on the Crystal River, with cement patio. Staff were very accommodating. No sewer hook ups is the only down side.

We reserved our cabin in February. You charged us the winter rate. When we checked in we were told that there was a computer glitch and we should have been charged the summer rate. It wasn't our fault and we should have been charged for the winter rate. Also the website said that the cabins were remodeled. They may have had some, but not all and the room wasn't up to KOA's standard. The bedd

As a new KOA, we understand that the owners are working hard to get their resort up to usual standards. We have stayed in many KOAs and have high expectations. Directly across from our campsite was what appeared to be a camper junkyard. It just wasn't something that we have encountered before and it slightly took away from the beauty of the area. There were also a lot of brush piles.

Great camping site! Nice new bathhouse! A little Close to the road but no traffic and night time.

I like the cabin being right on the river
