Campground Reviews

Jul 15, 2013
Campground was nicely maintained despite it's age. Campsites were spacious with tables and fire rings. We took our grandchildren to weekend activities which were poorly run and supervised by teenager. All activities started late (as much as 40 minutes) The Slip and Slide was great fun, but very dangerous to younger children because proper supervision was lacking.

We were only in over night, bu foun restrooms and showers (particularly the women's) to be in need of of repair and cleaning. The condition of the facilities did not support the per night cost compared to other sites we stayed at during our trip. For example...a beautiful state park in Colorado with spacious, full service pull through sites, and modern well maintained showers cost $43/day.

The handles in the pool are loose and dangerous

Nice grounds, good space, nice pool. Only drawbacks were closing of pool at 9PM and VERY low water pressure in women's showers. Barely a trickle.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It took us a few days, but we finally found the culprit to the low water pressure in the showers. I know it doesn't help your experience any, but now the showers have plenty of water pressure and they're nice and hot. Sorry for the inconvenience, but thanks for letting us know the problem.

My son had a great time in your pool & playground. The only downer was the immense amount of flies everywhere. It was like being on a farm. Your people were very pleasant, and if it weren't fore the flies, it would've been perfect.

The Wi-Fi connection was so slow as to be useless. The personnel behind the counter appeared unaware of the KOA membership coupon that I received a week ago. Otherwise a nice place.
