Cabin Reviews

May 26, 2015
I gave an 7 for the fact of Wild West Town being directly nextdoor to the campground. I would highly recommend Wild West to any family with young children. As far as our stay at the KOA - the staff was crabby and not very friendly, especially when it came to the rentals of the onsite bikes. The owners walked past our site- did not say hello or ask us how our stay was going. Need work in this area!

Great to know that after 9000 miles of flying from abroad and 34 hours without sleep KOA Union would welcome and look after us. The only thing out of their control was the cold weather, G and D Australia.

Everything was great! Im a single mom and my kids and I camped on a rainy weekend. The people at Koa did everything they could to be sure there was something for the kids to do. The only reason I don't give 5 stars is because my reservation was mixed up. I specifically reserved cabin 1 but when we got there they put us in cabin 3. When I show my confirmation emaiI I was told it doesnt matter.

Very accommodating on a late check-in. Our family loves the Kamping Kabins!

I realize this was the last weekend they were open, but was a bit disappointing not to have anything going on for the kids this past weekend since that is one of the biggest perks of KOA.

Stayed in a cabin with my wife and 2 year old son. Great fall weekend, lots of activities (Wild West Town, Railroad museum, Pumpkin patch/apple orchard). Would certainly come again.

The cabin was cozy and very clean. The bathrooms also were clean and perfect. Will stay again next season.

We had a great time. Loved the cabins

Enjoyed our stay. Bathrooms were clean but dated (soap not provided). Game room/theater room is a work in progress- not welcoming. Grounds were clean and landscaped. Cabin was clean and well maintained. Grounds have a small mini golf, swimming pool, small basketball area as well as volleyball area. Employees were helpful and friendly. Location is a remote area with limited local attractions.

Reserved a tent site for September 12 and 13. Friday the 12th was cold and raining. Reception mentioned an upgrade to a cabin. Did that without any trouble. Staff is friendly and the grounds are well kept with a variety of games for the kids. Will be going back next season!

Very nice and well-maintained campground. Our cabin had AC, a plus during the hot and humid weather. The owners are very friendly and attentive to our needs. There are a variety of activities for kids as well as adults.

Camp globalement bien tenu, on a regretté que seule une douche sur les 5 disponibles dans le bâtiment annexe fonctionne

We stayed in a cabin. It was surprisingly roomy! It was clean and very comfortable.We loved it! The pool was sparkling clean, as well as the restrooms/showers. It was nice to be able to walk a few steps to take our son to Wild West Town. It was a bonus, that we got discount tickets from KOA's office. Thank you for a giving us such a great place to camp. Will definitely be back! Happy Campers!

We will be back! Our cabin and the pool were both very clean, and the grounds were well kept. Just a short walk to Donley's Wild West Town, what a great weekend! The owners were very friendly and outgoing. Great time

My husband and I just needed a few days of R&R, this was the place to be. We rented a cabin which was clean and comfortable, the facilities were very clean. The owners Sylvia and Thomas were nice and attentive. Our stay was during the week so not a lot of campers probably due also to kids still being in school. We will definitely return and will recommend to family and friends.

The log Kabins were fun and even have a fan and A/C if it gets hot. The facilities were clean and there was lots of hot water. The WiFi has a weak signal. The pool was nice but not heated. The wild west adventure town next door was a fun day excursion for the kids.

Te staff was friendly and the cabin was clean. It would have been nice to have a heater, though. The nights were a bit chilly.
May 27, 2014
I really enjoyed the hospitality I was given. Sylvia went out of her way to accomodate out family and guest. I also like the improvments that were made throughout the park. Family friendly camp grounds I loved it!!! Will definitley go there again..

We have stayed here three times and have always been impressed with the great care taken to make sure that we are comfortable and that the facilities are clean and in good shape. We are grateful to have this stop on our trips westward from Ohio!

What a wonderful experience again at the KOA.Though I had paid on my credit card 1/2 of the two night stay.My friend, was responsible for the second 1/2 of the payment was not there when I arrived.I was told I could not get the key until the bill was paid in full.I understand policies, but I think that what would of been the harm in giving me the key.You had my credit info. Thx for a great stay!

This is a very nice place to stay that is well maintained and has been updated recently. We stayed in the cabin, which was clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful, and we would stay again.

We had a great time. We did find Fast Fred to be a bit grumpy. He needs to be more welcoming. It wouldn't hurt him to smile once in a while.

The people who operate the camp ground are friendly and helpful, the camp ground is close to major attractions, and in our case family. A great place to stay.
Sep 26, 2013
We have ALWAYS been a fantastic stay here. We've use the cabins and they are always wonderful fun. We have an 11& 12 year old and they love the bunk beds. The camp ground is always clean as well as the bathrooms. A HUGE plus! Anyway stay here if you want an enjoyable camping experience!
