Pull throughs right next to row of permanent trailer houses. Lots of mosquitos Lots of junk on perimeter of the camp grounds

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.

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.

Owner was grumpy...obviously unhappy in his work. More like a mobile home park.Park needs lots of maintenance. Dissatisfied customer.

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.

Staff available only 8 to 5 and not friendly. Showers not what they should be - not clean.

Our office is open from 8 am till 8 pm and someone is there all 12 hours. Our showers are cleaned every day. They have stained silicone. We have used mildew resistant silicone and it is not mildew resistant at all. We are trying to find another cleaner that will not let mildew form.

I stood t the counter over five minutes waiting to evn be acknowledged . I was put in a 30 amp when I had said I needed a 50 amp.this place is more like a run down trailer park.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am sorry for the error of placement in a site. The young lady who waited on you is new and negelected to put the 50 request on the form she was filling out. The computer chose the site. Sorry for your wait. I was on the phone with a customer.

The owner was very helpful and nice. They had a fully stocked store and we bought presents for friends. An escort was provided. Helpful also. Parked me, too. We will be back next year. Thank you again.

We were disappointed with our site which was on a hill in the back of the camp--a long way to the camp store, bathhouse and everything. There were plenty of empty sites in the front.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I wish you had come back to the office or called and let us know you did not like where you were parked. I can't change it now but I could have while you were here. We would like all of our campers to be happy with their site. I can't change what we don't know about.

We are going across the country and only had one night to stay. The ducks were so friendly and the kids liked feeding them. We want to come back again and explore the area. Campground was perfect for our family's needs.

Loved this place! Nice pool, mature trees, helpful staff. Just passed through one night, but will remember!
Jun 25, 2014
Exit sign from the rv park a little confusing
Jun 22, 2014
Lovely grounds. Large and well manicured. Clean. And they supply an extra table and chairs along with the usual picnic table at every site. Friendly owners!
Jun 20, 2014
well located, nice people, too many permanent residents, too many kids
Jun 19, 2014
We just stopped somewhere overnight. We wish there were more trash cans throughout the facility.

This is the second time that we have stayed at this KOA in Alma, AR. They have expanded since our last visit which is good to see. Nice staff.

Beautiful location at a lake, but sites were on uneven gravel and not enough full hookups for number of sites. Trees gave great shade, but dropped a lot of dirt on site as well.
Jun 14, 2014
Clean, friendly and so helpful when asked directions. Would definitely stay here again.
Jun 12, 2014
Sadly to say the sewer system smells thru out the park. We have stayed twice at campground location with the same problems.
Jun 12, 2014
Nice clean campground would definitely stay here again

The workers were rude and very unfriendly. One worker who was supposed to take us to our site left us sitting in our vehicle waiting. He did not wear a KOA shirt so no idea he was a worker. Then we get put back into a trailer park.

Not sure why we were taken up to a so so site when others were available. We paid for the best available. Verified in the. Morning when leaving when we saw no coaches in better sites. We were placed in the middle of permanents.

You made your reservation online and the computer picks out the sites for online reservations. You had already been charged for the site. If you were not pleased with where you were, we would have moved you if you would have come to the office and told us. Please speak up next time!
