Campground Reviews

May 18, 2015
We love this campground. The sites are not close so you have plenty of room. Sites are also clean. We love being on the water and seeing the fish jumping. Everyone is very helpful & friendly. We are going back in 2 weeks.

Really enjoyed our site which was very close to the lake. Very enjoyable neighbors too. The only thing that bugged us was the trash that was laying next to one of the sites next to us was never picked up. When we were leaving the next day it was still laying there. I really don't thing that is a good habit to let the trash lay for so long due to the wild life.

There is a definite NEED for more Full hook ups, a fenced Dog play area and FULL TIME ON THE PREMISES People came unto the campgrounds and the place was locked up tight so they left. I did enjoy myself and the peace and quiet despite the need for the things I have already mentioned. --- The Murphy's

it was beautiful and quiet, however the slave cemetery was not explained and off putting, it would have been nice to know some history about it

Quiet KOA, hope for more full service drive thru sites.

What a beautiful KOA site. Problems are, difficult access from interstate highway, marginal wifi, few full service sites, and no cable TV. Jim and the Ladies in the office were very helpful.

The campgroud setting is beautiful. The host were nice and the sites were level. There was not any activities planned and very little information was provided at check in. The bathhouse needs a major renovation. The lake is beautiful.

This place was awesome. Max is one of the most nicest man I have ever meet. Very helpful. Best campground host ever. Would highly recommend this koa.

The staff was very pleasant and helpful. This is a beautiful campground right on the lake. This would be a wonderful summer vacation place.

No one available at the site... no checkin , no support, It should have been noted at the time of reservation that no one would be there. Very disappointing and very unlike other KOA's we have stayed at...

Compared to some other KOA facilities they have work to do on playground and pool areas. The beach area was very nice. It was wooded and quite beautiful. Very polite staff.

The staff was very friendly. The campgrounds was clean and peaceful. Some of the sites were very narrow and if you have a slide it would present a problem. We will be going back again. Joe T.

We had a awesome stay here! One of the workers (Max) helped my husband back our rv into our site. It was our maiden voyage with our first camper. Then the lady in the office helped us learn how to empty our tanks! Great people and a great place!

BEAUTIFUL campground. A bit off the beaten path, but worth the extra miles. Roomy sites right on the lake! We were just traveling through, wished we could stay longer.

Great site, great park, best KOA bathroom I have ever seen. If you can get over seeing the prominent Nuclear Power plant, this is a perfect KOA.

Great for a new KOA! Need sewer connections Need kayak and canoe rental BUT Very clean, quite, and friendly!
Oct 05, 2014
Amazing sites without sewer. Too few with but the campground is on a great lake, full of fish, ducks and eagles. Understanding there are plans to develop more sewer sites and hopefully better showers. Still rates high on our 7 week trek around the USA

Full Hook-up sites are next to people that live there. There was nobody in the park and they put someone right next to us. Beautiful location, not easy getting a "Big Rig" around.

Very quiet and large area to spread out away from neighbors. Flat sites, nice swim beach, friendly staff. They are still working on a few things to bring it up to the fantastic level. We'd stay again!

Nice campground but needs some TLC.We stayed on site # 22 and it had a great view of the lake. But if someone was on site # 23 they would block your view. About site # 23 it is only large enough for a popup. The owners should consider making a boat dock off of this site. They could have a fish sink and a nice swing for the campers to look out over the lake. They also need to update the wiring.

Thank you for our free promotional night stay at Wheeler Lake KOA. The staff was pleasant and hospitable. The park and lake were beautifully groomed. This KOA has potential for a higher rating. We stayed in a full hook-up site where we expected wi-fi and cable TV; however, neither were available. The park has only been open since a March 2014, so hopefully that will be fixed.
