Campground Reviews

May 22, 2014
Very nice campground, friendly staff, all the conveniences, great location.
May 22, 2014
We have stayed at this campground twice in the last 2 years for a total of 6 nights. The campground is nice and secluded and the staff, though somewhat sparse is friendly. We stayed in a motorhome in May 2014.

Small but convenient and panoramic campground. Friendly staff, fishing pond and very reasonable prices.

owners friendly & helpful restrooms needed work

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The restrooms are on a schedule to be redone. They must be handicap accessible also. Thank you for your comments. Happy traveling.

This campground is just average. We were put in the back with the full time families. With kids running around and being loud. They had a nice area in front that was not even being used. Their Sewer system was overworked, smelled real bad. Sites way to small, width, wise. If we go back to Ft Smith we will look for another campground. Did not see another but will look.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You stayed for 3 days and never said a word to us about not being happy about where you were. We can move you if you do not like where you are. The time to tell us about it would have been when you decided that you did not like your spot. Down front was not full we could have put you there. Sorry

Our pull thru site was extra narrow. The other rv next to us was less than 9 ft. The grass on the property needed cutting badly. The owners were super nice and friendly and we will stay again and hope to get a better pull thru site. We were only there for one night.

Well kept campground. Ducks and geese on the little lake.

Pricey $45 versus $35 at other KOAs. Site narrow, slide-out hung over neighbor's patio, no picnic table, did not take us to site. Not up to KOA standards and we stay at them often.

This KOA needs to change hands. There was no water to our site, and the "manager" went home before we could complete our hook up check. They had a poor attitude, and clearly didn't care to serve. The site was poorly maintained, muddy and poorly groomed. It rained heavily and the old blacktop roads turned into ponds. Sorry I'm generally a positive person, but Fort Smith/Alma is an embarrassment

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Rain is a gift from God. If it makes a puddle you should enjoy it. If you usually are positive you should have something to like. It would have made your day feel much better. I cannot change the weather and we are constantly doing maintenance somewhere in the park. It will never be done.

Our Scout troop stays here often. The owner is most helpful and accommodating! The area is well kept, restrooms and showers are clean, wonderful playground for the boys. His area for Scouts is ideal...away from other campers, yet easy access to the showers. Plenty of picnic tables and a fire ring for campfire at night.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We only wish all our campers were as pleased as you and your troop and workers are with our grounds and facilities. We look forward to having you come again. Those boys are very well mannered and act like good citizens. We love having your troop here.

Not at up to standards.tried to park us in a lot we could not even find. Ended up in their more permanent area that is not well taken care of. We did have the best internet and even cable that we could remember. Could be a much nicer park if given some attention...

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

KOA has a policy that if you are not happy with your site you have 1 hour to tell us and we would refund your money with a smile. Sorry you were not a happy camper. That is truly what we strive for is "Happy Campers".

HAD A GRATE STOP OVER ON OUR TRIP WEST.

The park is in need of some updating. The potential to have a beautiful park is there, but needs some serious cleanup.
Mar 31, 2014
The electric box at our site wasn't wired right and now we ar having electrical problems with our brand new 5th wheel. The grounds need a lot of cleaning up, there are geese and ducks that deposit everywhere.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The wiring is fixed. The geese we cannot do anything about they are protected. The ducks make lots of our guests happy. They love watching them and feeding them. We have people come from town to feed them. Simple things make some people's day. Thank you for staying with us please come again.

Over priced for the quality and condition of the sites

Great for last stop before returning home!

There were many things to do in the area. Great Wine trail and Fort Smith. Only drawback is the sites in the area we were in were narrow and may be very tight in the busy season.
Mar 20, 2014
we love to stay here when we are in the area!

The registration area smelled like mold - noticed it immediately upon entering the area. The laundry room was large and all machines working. The dryers can rip you off because its $.50 to start the machine, then $.25 for each 5 minutes. If you let the machine stop to check your clothes, it is another $.75 to start it again.

Beautiful and spacious setting, nice folks.

Friendly staff, but spaces are not level.
Feb 21, 2014
Nice facility, quiet and peaceful. On site staff very helpful and courteous. When I stayed there, they were having water leak issues with some minor outage.

Lovely campground, & I understand freezing weather. I would hope, however, that in the future a discount might be considered for lack of water

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Water was available at a faucet behind the store to fill holding tanks. Just not the convenience of having it on site. Our apologies.
