all good. Whenever I notice that there have been adaptations for older, heavier or handicapped campers, I am impressed.Good to see such adaptations beginning to be implemented at all KOAs.

The KOA was very full the night we stayed and it felt like we were on top of one another like a parking lot. Also, the bathrooms were filthy with paper and garbage on the floor & the floors were very wet. They need to be cleaned more frequently when it is as full as it was. It was quiet at night which was a plus. Not sure if we would stay again.

It was wonderful. Though we only spent one night, the cabin was clean and a great place to stay. Arriving late we wondered how easy it would be to check in. When we got there our key and a map were waiting for us, it made our night a lot less stressful knowing that we could get there late and still have a place to stay! Will definitely be staying there again and recommend it to anyone!

We enjoyed our short stay with you. As always, the cleanliness, layout of the sites (space between spots and landscaping)is a nice change from some other campgrounds we stay at. Looking forward to being with you again.

Staff was very nice & helpful. The campground itself was just ok, more like someone's backyard. Bathrooms were nice & clean.

Camping -- with a pool, playground, laundry and activities -- it doesn't get much better than that. We enjoyed the amenities of a lodge with the fun of outdoors. It was a great stay.

Clean restroom facility--only one for the entire campground. Located in a very remote area, quiet. We arrived at about 6:00 on a Sunday evening and could not find a place to eat in the neighboring village--every place was closed. Thank God this KOA bakes pizzas and will deliver them to your campsite! Lowell and Roseanne are friendly and helpful.
