The gentlemen that checked us in, needs a mental evaluation! We were so uncomfortable, we almost didn't stay! Wifi not available in cabin. U advertise, you provide!

We checked in and were escorted to the very back of the park where all of the permanent residents live. If we had wanted to utilize the pool or any of the other features of the park, we would have had to walk 1/2 mile to them. It was quiet but very run down. The grass was quite high. Had to wade through it to walk the dogs. The water tastes terrible and had to be filtered.

Worst KOA EVER! Staff was cold, unfriendly. Tent site on a slope, worst picnic table (small, on slope), huge spiders everywhere, dirty showers (wouldn't use them), washroom stank of urine and the fluorescent lights flickered so bad gave me headache. Paid for electrical outlet, didn't work, had to use my 30 ft extension to nick power from adjacent site. Couldn't wait to leave! I'll never go back!

An older KOA, but well maintained & scenic. Has all amenities that an RVer would want, including lotsa fowl.

It's a peaceful, secluded spot within driving distance to many restaurants and things to see.

Owners were rude, campground looks very nice upon driving in, however for our stay we were put right across rundown mobile homes and jury rigged long termed campers. Most of the sites looked like they haven't been used in years. It is full of wild ducks who have poop all over the grounds. All we can say is keep on going and find another campground. I would rather stay at a Walmart than here.

It just seem like a place to sleep for the night

Nice campground. We had good shade. Easy access to dumpster; right out driver's window as you exit park.

Just stayed one night, but as usual KOA's are great. Thank you.

Enjoyed our overnight stay here, however we were parked in an area where there were a lot of permanent/worker sites and the sites were not kept up. The pond was green and the dock didn't look very safe to use. The owners were very nice.

we were not given any paperwork for our stay. In all fairness, there was bad weather and the electricity in part of the campgrounds was out, but we were taken to our site, and that was it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our power was knocked out because lightning hit our transformer and popped the breaker on the transformer, before our camper arrived, and the power company had to fix it. We registered them and escorted them to their site. The storm was past. It rained and we waited on OG&E power co.

Friendly helpful staff. This was a very quiet site after staying in many sites near interstates and railroad noise,

Bien situé, super piscine, propriétaire aimable. Il manque un abri pour campeurs en cas de pluie et un lavabo pour la vaisselle. Les bornes électriques des Tent sites sont hors service (presque toutes)

Average campground. Needs some sprucing up

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We agree there are a lot of opportunities to replace or repair. We do work on something all the time, as our weather permits. We are trying to do our best to keep a park going that was built in 1969. Some things have to be dealt with by surprise and others are maintenance. We also have new projects

We stay at this campground every time we come to Arkansas for our family reunion, I really like the improvements they have made since we were there last.

Worst wifi ever. Expensive. Nice pool though.
Aug 08, 2014
This KOA was poorly maintained,, in comparison to many others we have visited. The pool was not usable the first night. The dryers didn't work until the guy banged on them awhile. There was a general feeling of neglect, with lots of duck droppings everywhere. My husband enjoyed the lake however.
Aug 07, 2014
The campground is very beautiful and mostly shaded, but the pull-thru site I had sloped so much that I could not level my coach without the front tires being off the ground.
Aug 06, 2014
We've stayed at this KOA twice in the last 3 years. It is ok for a 1 nite stay, however the hosts need to be friendlier. We stay at many KOAs and I would rate this one last in that category.

Not worth the price. Grass needed mowed. Pull through used to be gravel but grass has taken over and very close to next spot. Not friendly at check in (male). Over rated by a lot.
Aug 06, 2014
At check in owners very argumentative rather than customer friendly. Sites very narrow, poor cable reception, pool was closed due to algae which in my experience is simply poor maintenance. Stayed 2 night in a 5th wheel,

People nice . But cabin in poor repair with door lock needed to be replaced.
Aug 01, 2014
Pull throughs right next to row of permanent trailer houses. Lots of mosquitos Lots of junk on perimeter of the camp grounds
Jul 31, 2014
Disgusting Showers were very poor condition and dirty. Pull thru site was next to mobile homes. Junk RVs and equipment visible around property Worst KOA site on entire trip.
Jul 28, 2014
nice grounds but your showers were filthy!It seemed to be that way in all 3 AR KOA" we stayed at in AR. KOA should kick you out of their system

This KOA was okay. The wifi worked sometimes and the pool was closed one of the days I was there. The day it was open was great. The young woman in the office was kind, but the older woman seemed ambivalent. Facilities could stand updating. The ducks were irritating and borderline harassing. There's not much in the area. I'll try Eureka Springs next time.
Jul 21, 2014
Owner was grumpy...obviously unhappy in his work. More like a mobile home park.Park needs lots of maintenance. Dissatisfied customer.

Sorry about your dissatisfaction. Hope you have a better stay at your next KOA.
Jul 20, 2014
We staid one night as we were breaking up our travel into two days. The campground isn't bad but I suggest if you stay, spend the extra money and get the patio sites by the pool and KOA building. If you get the pull through sites, you will be stuck by a bunch of mobile homes. The pool was nice and my kids enjoyed the salt water aspect of it.

Kamper cabin smelled moldy, was dark and dirty
