Campground Reviews

poor service, uncaring staff.

TOO restrictive for our taste....and a bit greedy with the $5 per visitor rule. I can understand charging "visitors" if they wanted to use the pool, but.....also, the noise was awful! Guns firing.....trains hooting, lawn mowers cutting grass everyday! Perhaps if the restrictions were less, the other things could have been tolerated better.

Ils ont été exceptionnels. Nous avons eu un avari et ils ont su répondre à nos besoins. Félicitations.

Friendly staff, very clean campground, nicely landscaped. Only con was site could be wider, it was snug but adequate.

I have only stayed in one other KAO and that one was nice too, but this one was way better. Lots of soft grass made all the difference for tent camping. Staff was excellant. Hope to come again

The staff was great! Very friendly ... The campground itself was very nice and clean ... The only thing we didn't love was the pool... Too small and out dated .... Other than that a great place ... Would love to return someday 😃

The grounds were lovely and the location is off the highway but easy to find. Kids loved the pool and mini golf.

We really enjoyed our stay. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We would stay again.

We have stayed here before but do not remember all the separate fees for things - we bought fire wood but then the storm came up and we could not use it and were told they did not buy it back so that was a waste of our $12.00...otherwise we enjoyed our weekend...

This is a close KOA that we will use often. Clean campground, friendly staff. We have a 35 foot travel trailer and it was easy in and out access to site. Plenty of site space for us also.

Overall nice park. The water quality is very poor and internet is non existent. Should not even advertise it has it.

The campground is very nice, but the water has a very metallic taste to it and the internet could use a little more juice.

We had a wonderful time! Great shaded tent spot. Lots of free activities for the kids and free play equipment to use, like recumbent bikes. Only downside was that the mens bathroom was having plumbing issues and was dirty all the time. According to the owners this was an issue they had been addressing all weekend, but guests apparently kept blocking the toilets. Ladies restroom was fine.

Poor attitude on the part of the staff and supervisor. Thanks for nothing!

The staff were very helpful and accommodated for my early arrival. It is a peaceful and well-groomed campground.

Good level roomy sites, clean restrooms, tidy campground. Was surprised to find steakhouse right next door to walk to with good food...Thanks

The sites were fine and level. The staff was very friendly. The wifi was good. I was disappointed though in the lack of merchandise at the office, the availability of garbage bins,(I only found one)and the lack of any cable availability. It also seemed too expensive for its location. The entrance, exit area was too small to contain several large rvs.

This was our 2nd summer camping here! We love this place. The owners and staff are wonderful. The grounds are well maintained and they offer so much for kids to do! A great place to get away, relax and enjoy the outdoors.

Very nice campground. Had a 50 amp full-hookup. Staff was friendly and a lot of things to do including a Wild West business and full size train museum in close proximity.

The staff at this KOA sets the standard by which others should be judged. This was our second time here, and we were just as impressed as our first stay. The sites are great and everything is well maintained. The staff checked us in at the gate so we didn't even have to get out of our tow vehicle. We appreciate the attention on safety/security.

Everything has come a long way in just one year!! Looking great and VERY family-oriented

Great. New owners have done a great job updating the campground.
Jul 15, 2013
We arrived late but the directions give in the envelope were easy to follow and we found our spot without any problems and we were able to set up quickly. I found the park to be up to KOA's high standard and I would stay here again.

If a person stays at a KOA they know in advance they will have a clean and well managed facility. I would always recommend a KOA. However, this is my favorite KOA to camp. The new owners took a great campground and made it way better. The family who runs this location are very nice and interactive with their customers. This is my favorite KOA location.

Tight roads and sites

Very nice tent camping (we didn't want electric or water, so were "away" from all others). That was a plus because there were a LOT of tents / people in the other section. Bathroom facilities were the best we've had so far on our trip.
