WONDERFUL!!!
Feb 03, 2015
Friendly staff and groundskeepers. The play area was nice for the kids. The recreation room was closed and adjacent storage trailers and fenced in patio/work area looked run down and unattractive. A significant full time community area. It was nice to be near the sites in Charleston. I'd like to come back in the summer to check it out again.

Campgrounds were dirty, unstaffed, water spikets were broken, nothing was labeled. Will not be returning.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The facility is staffed from 8-6 daily this time of year. Unfortunately, when temperatures dip below freezing, spigots that have not been dripped often will not thaw out as quickly as we would like.

Children were bitten in the cabin and had to go to Urgent Care

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Exterminator was called out and could find no evidence of insects of any kind in this cabin. We do carry insect repellent with DEET in our store to protect campers from most of the southeast's biting insects.

This KOA needs some work. It is not equipped to handle any amount of rain. Our space had about 4-6" standing water; the ground/mud was extremely soft. Not at all a "nice" stay.

Returned for at least the 8th year. Visit family and they are the closest. Staff seems well versed on any questions ask of them.

Clean restrooms and great staff. Campgound needs some work so sites and roads drain better after it rains.

Convenience a plus. Camping World, outlet mall, downtown are just a few miles away. Not far. Be sure you read that there is no cable. Not an issue if you don't need it. Wifi is very spotty. Do not depend on it. Campground clean. Bit tight on some sites so if you have a long rig be careful entering and exiting sites. Overall good.

Good News! We've just completed a major overhaul on our wi-fi system AND added Cable TV!!

Positive is the new Dog Pen; it was wonderful. It had rained the day we arrived and it was still wet/muddy after 3 days of sun. Roads are dirt and so are the sites; so basically wet/muddy the entire time we were there; 6 days. Check In Staff were very friendly/helpful

Close enough to Charleston. Sites could use some leveling and were too muddy, but other facilities were clean well maintained - the thing I expect the most for a KOA

Sites flood easily. No lighting at night. No upkeep on sites. Low inventory and selection in store. High rates. We stay because it's near to our son;the only game in town. Staff is always friendless and helpful.

Everything very tight.

This place should be closed. It is the worst koa I have ever stayed at.

12.26.14 Incredibly friendly staff! Clean bathrooms. I stayed with my dog in a cabin and the full size bed was perfect for me, but if I had more with me the bunk bed's mattresses didn't seem to fit the frames. The cabins back to the trailer park and at first I thought noise might be an issue, but it wasn't. There was nothing outstanding, but there was nothing to complain about. It met my needs.

Campground was okay but not what we had expected. This is the first time at the KOA but if they are all set up this way, we will probably not stay at another one. We're used to camping at state parks. The KOA's seem to be set up for overnight or long stay. Nothing against KOA's, just not what we're looking for when camping. Staff very nice and accommodating.

The grounds was not very clean. And,I think the rate was much higher than some nicer campgrounds we have stayed at.

This is a GREAT campground, it is WELL keep clean and friendly. The club house is large for groups/family gathering.

Our granddaughter Really loved the playground. Really well kept & nice equipment

Excellent staff,very friendly. I have camped at this KOA annually for the past 4 years. I just wish the spaces were crushed rock or some other materials to take car of the uneven surfaces.

Nice location with trees and a friendly staff. The highway out front is very busy but provides convenient access to all of Charleston.
Dec 11, 2014
the location was good for Charleston and the people were friendly Not a warm and friendly campsite where I wanted to sit outside . The site was next to the garbage bins and right up against an industrial area.
Dec 08, 2014
Very friendly staff. They were all very helpful. Love the atmosphere.

Good stay.

We stay at this campground usually four times a year. This particular time was during the week before Thanksgiving and it was unusually cold (in the 20's and 30's at night). There was no heat in the bathrooms. I had to go to the office and ask them to turn it on.

We love the campsite and the area in general. Except for the rain all was good as usual.

party in rec hall sat nite was too loud for a campground

Camp sites extremely narrow with too many trees and NO lighting!! Told not to move picnic table, but it was placed at the back of site, so basically unusable. Very over priced for amenities (none) Rules arbitraitaly enforced. No lighting, many unattended dogs Roads dark and rutty. Satellite unusable from trees. Very poor KOA!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are happy to accommodate site requests with advanced reservations. Simply call ahead to request a satellite friendly space. You are more than welcome to move your picnic table around your site, we simply ask that they not be removed FROM your site. Dogs must be on a hand-held leash when outside.

No cable TV. Non-functional Internet. No dog run, though one was apparently recently built and roped off for whatever reason. Laundry closed before we got there, opened at 8 a.m. as we left. "Pull-through" space had a big oak tree that forced me to unhook towed car to leave. Not up to the usual standards we expect from KOA, and definitely overpriced.
