Campground Reviews

Intended to stay for a valentines getaway but had to reschedule due to snow for the following weekend. What a difference one week makes ! Weather was beautiful,fishing was great,Mingo falls was breath taking and KOA staff were very helpful and nice. The bath houses were very clean and up to date, actually some of the nicest in comparison to other KOA's I have stayed at. Great quiet lovers getaway!

Arrived in the early evening. We have a special needs child and we were looking forward to the indoor pool with her. Upon arriving we noticed the pool was closed for repair. We checked in,the front desk apologized would not charge us if we decided not to stay. We were tired from the drive and didn't want to put our little one back in the car. I did ask and received a SMALL discount per night.

We enjoyed the campground, looks like lots of things to do in the summer. Personally a bit disappointed that we were the first to show up to the Kamping Kabins and stayed a day longer than everyone else, but we got the oldest Kabin whose heat was out (had two portable heaters going), black ants (large and small) and damaged closet and mini fridge. Would stay again if were put in newer Kabin.

Everyone I worked with were very nice and helpful, like Erin at the desk. Lack of wifi really affected my stay. Beautiful location.

Well back again in the snow and still catching trout... As always the crew is on the ball. Always nice and if you need something they do it. As I understand under new management and items are being updated. So would always recommend. Craig

There was a mix up on our cabin prep. The weather was really cold and we had no heater... BRRRR. It was late when checked in and we are new at this KOA cabin camping stuff. We didn't know who to call. SO.. We plugged in our electric blanket and dressed real warm. We hope to come back in the summer so we can enjoy. It is a breath taking view..We had hot water atleast.. lol

Stay was pretty good. Staff was great. The Wifi was subpar and made working from my laptop extremely difficult, suggest increasing the bandwidth.

We love the bigger cabin. The people working this campground are always friendly and helpful. The burners on the stove could be a bit bigger though.
Jan 10, 2014
We had a great time and will definitely be back again soon

This was our first stay at this KOA, we stayed in a cabin on the water and it was the best weekend I have had in a long time. The cabin was excellent and clean and the staff was super nice and social. Planning on coming back next month!

We had an enjoyable vacation. There is much work that needs to be done (i.e.. water, septic, painting all buildings, game room needs to be updated with new games, swimming pool & hot tub areas need to be cleaned). We have stayed at KOA for three yrs. now. We will continue to stay here for New Year's. The staff is very helpful and kind. Erin is the best!

I'm sorry to say that my husband and I will not be back. When we got there, there was another camper in our site. The office could not handle this situation. A new maintenance man named Bob found us a site to pull into. the cable tv did not work, internet was poor, hot tub dirty and jets didnt work. The only person who apologized was Bob and the only one who tried to find solutions.

Cant wait to come back with the kids!

We loved everything and management was wonderful planning on coming back as often as we can

The cabin was nice and everything was great except: 1) The cable TV was really fuzzy with a lot of interference. 2) There wasn't any wifi, although the website said there was. This was a bigger deal because there is no in-cabin phone or cell signal, so no communication is available from the cabin. 3) The hot water ran out during just one shower. Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay.

Loved the stay and will certainly be staying again. Service was great and the People were helpful and friendly. We were able to stay with our pets and have a great time. The cable was okay and the wi-fi was on and off, but they said they were getting an upgrade so I'm sure it will be fine soon. We weren't on vacation to watch TV. Loved it thanks guys we'll be back, soon I hope :)

We had the best time. It was very cold, but the ambiance made up for it! The staff was awesome, accommodations were very clean...we'd love to come again!

Had a wonderful Christmas vacation that we will never forget !!! Thanks, the Suderman's

The staff was great - we found out the hard way that you can not leave the sewer lines out in freezing weather, but the maintenance man took care of it for us.

We stayed in a deluxe cabin on the river side. Deluxe isn't what it feels like. It was not clean (at all), very small, and the kitchen did have only two pans of which one should have been thrown away years ago. We will never stay there again.

Had a great time, the kids loved the giant chess board!

The indoor pool neads some updating the floors were dirty is some areas. And need to be resurfaced. There was no hand rail on the steps into the hot tub, as a result I could not use it. It would have been nice if the pool was open in the evening. We could have worn the kids out so they would go to bed easily. Your campground is in a great location. Hope to see improvements when we come again.

We enjoyed our stay!! The river view was beautiful and the cottage was clean and new. We will definitely be back! The only complaint we had was the cable and wifi however when mentioned to the staff they let us know it was being upgraded over the winter. We look forward to a return in the summer!!
Dec 09, 2013
All Good. Plenty of good fishing in the area. As always all the crew are there for your needs..... Thank You
Dec 04, 2013
Had a great time in the fall. Can't wait to go back in the summer! Great staff...very friendly!!

Have stayed at this campground before, several time. Always had a good experience, until now. No hot water in bath house. Indoor hot tub was hot but not working. Water was discolored. Dogs were in the campstore. Frost free spicket at camper was froze every morning, even though we unhooked the water hose and stored it inside camper during the night.
Dec 04, 2013
We had a great time. We didn't bring the kids on this trip but most definitely want to bring them with us this summer.
Dec 04, 2013
campground need to update cable and internet. with young kids TV is a must at night and early mornings. Water pressure was low at our site. but I would and will stay their again.
Dec 03, 2013
Honestly this KOA is a hard one. The area is pretty, great for fishing. Love the paved roads. The staff was nice, not overly friendly as other KOA's we visited. We got no escort to our site, no trash pickup. A little high priced for what you get. First experience with unfriendly camping neighbors that didn't respect the quite hours and burned a fire nonstop. Just a bit much for us.
Dec 03, 2013
Everyone so helpul and very Nice ground. Trout Fishing is awesome.
Dec 03, 2013
We had a great stay. There were some mechanical problems with our cabin. But let me tell you!!! I told them and they were there in minutes to fix the problems. The staff is great and on top of any needs or problems. We Loved our stay. This is our 2nd trip in two weeks and I am going back this week again....
Dec 03, 2013
Everything was great. If I could change one thing it would be to create a changing area within the indoor pool area besides a tiny bathroom.
Dec 02, 2013
Great Stay! Can not wait to come back!
Dec 02, 2013
Staff was excellent, property was great. Location great. I was there for 5 days, WIFI is virtually unusable. I was unable to stay in touch with work. That was a big problem. Probably will not be back for that reason only. Great park otherwise !!
Dec 02, 2013
I was a little bit disappointed that the cabins did not automatically have heat in them. Stayed in one the previous weekend in WV at the KOA there & they did. Overall, great location though.
