Good people. We had a good stay, quiet and reasonable room. Dog yards were nice for the dogs.

Staff are very friendly.

KOA staff were very polite and helpful. Facilities were clean but septic system was slow.

I was impressed that the room didn't t smell bad, we had dogs and the hotel was dog friendly. We enjoyed the continental breakfast. Plan on staying there again on the way back home in a month.

Tremendous place -- quiet, well maintained, large lots. The dog run is the BEST EVER, and the trails around the fishing pond have lots of critters for the dogs to get excited about. Love this place!

Campground was clean and offered nice recreational options, most of which we could not use. For us, the cost was too high.

nice campground-just watch the entry-we had to pay 4 $250. because we ran into the gutter of their building which according to them happens "a lot"!!My husband could have probably fixed for $10. Oh well, they need a warning sign.

The staff was nice. I don't understand why it's so difficult for KOAs to put clients in areas that are not muddy. I hate to have to continually ask for a better spot.

Great stay. Only wifi was not the best.
Jun 03, 2015
excellent wonderful staff. good fishing. would stay again.

It is a really nice campground, beautiful bathhouse and friendly staff. I would have preferred the bathhouse a little warmer since it was pretty cool when we were there. But overall a great place.

Far better than we hoped for. Wonderful customer service. Far enough from the interstate to be quiet, close enough for easy access. Our awning blew off while we were away. They fixed it for us, left a note telling us what happened, and taught us how to ensure it doesn't happen again, all without making us feel uncomfortable for making a rookie mistake. A great experience.

One of the nicest camps we've stayed at. Super clean bathrooms. Lots of stuff for the kids to do. Reasonable prices in the country store.

our stay was ok but the guy with the pony tail needs to clean up and not have a cigarette hanging out his mouth all the time was a little put out with this

This is the best KOA has to offer. I have only stayed in one other KOA that equals this one. (Not that there aren't others). The Deluxe sites are level and spacious, as well as the Executive sites. Everything well kept, people are great and amenities are plentiful, especially for children. The short distance to Adel or Desoto is no further than most people drive to dine out or grocery shop.
May 30, 2015
Very clean and comfortable. The Wifi could be a little more consistent. But other than that we really enjoyed our stay

We had a good time

we have made it an annual tradition to go to this KOA every year and my wife and I are impressed with the amount of added amenities every year! We will be back!

It was awesome! It was very nice of the owner to give my kids a day pass to the jumping pillow and go carts because the pool was being fixed. We really liked the newly remodeled bathrooms too.
May 29, 2015
Very welcoming staff. Super clean and modern bathroom/showers! Only stayed one night while passing through, but we'll be back!

The campground was nice except for all the mud from the rains. Need to put more gravel on roads and campsites. Overall the park was good and very quiet. Restrooms were clean.
May 27, 2015

This is a great campground. They have made major upgrades including the restroom. The sites are very nice and include a picnic table and fire ring. The ice cream was a new addition and was fantastic! Lots of activities for children. I really like this campground and will return.
May 26, 2015
There were 10 of us(6 adults, 4 kids)in a motorhome, 5 wheel and camping cabin. Weather didn't cooperate-but didn't stop us from having a great time! Activities for kids were great, facilities in awesome condition and staff wonderful. Will return! Thank you.
May 26, 2015
We really enjoyed our recent stay with you. The kids loved all of the activities! Clean campground, lots of amenities. We will be back soon. Thank you!!

The staff are always very friendly and welcoming, and we have already stayed here several times over the past few years. We often tell people about your campground and look forward to coming back. In addition to the positive customer service experience, it's such a peaceful place to stay.
May 26, 2015
Love all the changes that have been made. The staff as always is wonderful and very helpful.
May 26, 2015
Put us way out and in a double site when there were not that many campers at the time. Roads were very hard to walk on because of large size gravel used. Easy to turn an ankle. New upgraded restroom/showers were very nice. Wine tasting a nice touch for the adults (lots of things for kids). The pizza was delicious and delivered to boot. Very nice.
