Half way point on my trips from Arkansas to Minnesota. I can always count on a courteous reception and a good nights rest.

Very nice and quiet. Consider alternate surfacing material as existing is very dusty when dry and very very muddy when wet.

Having to pay for each child to jump on a pillow is ridiculous. We pay enough per campsite as it is, then to pay per child to jump is too much. The lady named Wendy is rude and short with people and very unfriendly at all, and is not like usual KOA employees. Roseann and Lowell were friendly and accommodating as usual. Bathrooms not cleaned as scheduled times messy. Quiet times NOT enforced-bad!

We have stayed here before, and while everything went well, we believe you need to upgrade your shower conditions.

The staff is friendly. The delivery pizza was wonderful. It's quiet, and in a good location with easy access to fairly level sites. We also like the enclosed dog park.

Bathrooms especially the showers need major updates. They were clean but were in need of plumbing and fixture replacements. Staff was friendly and all sites where some what level.

We stayed one night on our way back home from vacation. Have a great fenced in area for our puppy. Nice park but like most KOA's anymore, a little pricy.

Interior roads were badly rutted.Very messy. Worst of all - NO HOT WATER in the LAUNDRY!! When I asked about it they just shrugged and said we only have cold.That needs to be changed. How did they ever get any awards? Expensive for what you get.

The Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The site was clean and had a lot of nice amenities. We arrived before they were leaving for the day and were able to order pizza for dinner. The food was great and it was perfect for tired travelers. We will stay again and recommend this site. Thank you!

The cabin we stayed in was very clean and cozy. We enjoyed the horseshoes and ladder golf and would have utilized more amenities if we had more time. The only thing we didn't love was that the water tasted mildewy. Otherwise, we had a great stay!

We stay primarily at KOA's since 1990. This has always been a favorite even though we have travelled all states west of the Mississippi. Love KOAs

Charged for internet, but it didn't work on newer computers. No discount. High price for low service.

I was placed next to an "extended stay family"-2 teenage kids, 2 unleashed dogs,2 vehicles . The father arrived and proceeded to start a fire to burn several empty beer cases in the fire ring using a couple of generous splashes of gas from a 5 gallon can he stored under his trailer. The fire ring was 5 feet from my car and 10 feet from my motor home. Other sites were available -tired of KOA s
