Campground Reviews

We didn't really get a chance to enjoy the campground. It was nice and clean and great people.

Nice, quiet park in a peaceful environment. Had a great time, the granddaughter enjoyed the playground and feeding the ducks. Had a nice campfire and a good cookout.

We have stayed here at least 3 times and have always had a great experience.

We really enjoyed our stay and the people that work there are wonderful :) They were so helpful in all our needs and I would recommend that specific KOA to everyone.

Well kept facility run by extremely nice people. It's true, no airports, trains or truck traffic either.

Clean park, friendly staff. My only suggestion for the next season would be to add to your kids playground equiptment. Very basic playground, needs more.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the suggestion. We're constantly adding new amenities to the park, and although it's not at the very top of the list, upgrading/adding more equipment in the playground is on the list. Thanks again for letting us know your thoughts.

We chose this campground because it said it had wi-fi. Not true. We were unable to connect at all - at 9:00 pm, at 11:00 pm, and at 7:00 am. This caused us major problems with our itinerary. We would never camp here again. It was clean, it was lovely, but it was not "wired." Please forewarn people in the future when wi-fi is a mere suggestion and not a reality.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm really sorry the WiFi wasn't working after we closed for the evening. We definitely have WiFi throughout the whole park, but occasionally it will go down and is fixed with a simple reset, which is what we did for you at 9am, when you let us know. Call us in the future, so we can fix it.

The owners were extremely accommodating as we were towed in due to a breakdown. They went out of their way to make sure our stay was a comfortable as possible.
