Campground Reviews

Dec 01, 2013
The small space heater did not even begin to heat the kabin. There was not much hot water to be had at the shower house either. This may be manageable in the summer,but never in November.

Awesome grounds-wish we could have stayed more than a day. Owner/caretaker was both amusing and considerate about our needs without even being asked....

Nice clean park--friendly knowledgable staff.

Far too noisy at night (some occupants had loud vehicles!) Numerous permanent mobile homes in the KOA.

Average - no extras. Store not very well stocked.
Nov 12, 2013
We thought the permanent sites could use grooming.
Nov 11, 2013
Not Big Rig Friendly. Mobile home park and Rv park together not a good idea. The staff was friendly and helpful.
Nov 06, 2013
Site was not drained well. Not enough well placed trash containers. Sites too far from office/showers

We got there and saw how many permanent residents were there, how run down it looked and we left. We did not stay.
Nov 04, 2013
We stayed with you before and enjoyed it. You have a very peaceful area.
Nov 02, 2013
This was one of the prettiest campgrounds we have stayed in. We enjoyed it and would return.
Oct 31, 2013
Neat campground but the staff was less than friendly.
Oct 31, 2013
The grill was full of ash along with lot's of cigarette butts. Not worth what we paid for the night.
Oct 30, 2013
Nice quiet campground.
Oct 29, 2013
First site taken to was next to old tralers, both mobile homes and rvs, that were full time residence. We asked to move and second site was sharing a picnic table! Third site was perfect but only great site. Owner was very mean and rude (man) and overworked.

Nice clean campground Friendly staff

The description in the KOA directory states that this is a quiet campground. We were disturbed by the highway traffic all night long. All of our windows were closed since it is cool this time of year and it was still disturbing. Not 'quiet' at all!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Most of our campers find this campground very quiet. We are sorry that you found it noisy the night you were here. I'm sorry but I can't change that night for you. I pray you will keep staying at KOA's. They are a great place to stay.

tv connection required a male connector to use. Quiet ad peaceful . Nice . Check in was informative and very friendly.
Oct 24, 2013
The campground was beautifully laid out and the people were very nice and friendly.
Oct 22, 2013
So much history in the area & the location of the KOA was perfect, Nice campground.
Oct 21, 2013
Stayed a month while working in area. Safe. Did not use the facilities. Very curteous.

Old run down campsite and certainly not worth $50 per day Needs a complete remodel.

We found this KOA to be very nice and comfortable. The bathrooms were very clean and the people very friendly.
Oct 16, 2013
Quiet, slept good. Big area for pet running. Cable, wi-fi worked good. Host guided us to our spot, and identified the hookups.
Oct 15, 2013
The campground was very clean and the employees were helpful.
Oct 15, 2013
Beautiful campground - wished we would have there longer - next time will request location by lake.
Oct 14, 2013
Lots of rain. Had a little trouble with the wifi, but overall enjoyed the site.

The facilities and the grounds were nice. I stayed in Kabin 1. That was my first use of a KOA Kabin. My limited dealings with what I believe was the owner were not pleasant. He never smiled once, didn't welcome us to the KOA, and just didn't seem very happy to be running this KOA. Dealing with the staff is why I rate this so low. This was very unusual in my experience with staying at KOAs.

Roaches in the camp store. 4:00 am. Fight with cussing/broken glass outside our travel trailer Man who took my reservation by phone acted like it was a pain to find me a spot

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The camper who woke you at 4 a.m. was asked to leave and he did so. The monthly people are here to work a job that is away from their home, so they can still have an income to take care of their family. Some of them are fixing the bridges so you can drive your RV over them and they will be safe.
Oct 12, 2013
Nice staff. Only one bath/restroom some distance from site. Nice, quiet location.
Oct 11, 2013
The staff wrer the least friendly of any KOAs we have visited. I had to request to be escorted to my site and the man driver was quite grumpy.

not a koa quality campground, too many permanent trailers and campers. low class
Oct 11, 2013
one night on the move
Oct 10, 2013
Great location, great camp site, easy in & out.
Oct 09, 2013
Nice lake and good hookups, but sites are very close together and there are many homesteaders.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

NOT EVERYONE IS LUCKY ENOUGH TO WORK OUT THEIR BACK DOOR. I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY CAMPERS ARE SO UNFORGIVING TO LIFESTYLES NOT LIKE THEIR OWN. NOT EVERYBODY CAN AFFORD A RV AND A BEAUTIFUL HOME ALSO. WE HAVE TRAVELING NURSES WHO WORK AWAY FROM HOME AND STAY IN A CAMPER. BE THANKFUL FOR WHAT U HAVE.
Oct 06, 2013
beautiful wooded area. Nice walk around the lake.
Oct 06, 2013
A really mediocre KOA. The site sucked. The place.is in bad need of.an update. I won't stay there again. Way over priced for what you got.
Oct 06, 2013
The office closes at 4:30!?! Info on available sites & services was inaccurate & the method of night check in was totally unacceptable!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The office closes at 6 P.M. The way to get around having to deal with the night register is make a reservation earlier in the day. Also if you had trouble there is a phone number at the night register to call us at home and we would have been happy to come assist you. We want campers to be happy.
Oct 06, 2013
POOR MAINTENANCE OF THE FACILITY. APPEARED TO BE MANY LONG TERM "CAMPERS" WHO LIVED THERE FOR EXTENDED TIMES WITH MULTIPLE VEHICLES AND TOYS. THIS MAY BE THE NORM IN ARKANSAS. SPEEDLIMITS NOT OBSERVED.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

There are many people who are not able to find work in the area they live in all the time. Some of them work for contracters who send them all over to work on road repairs and so forth. Thank God for those people so we can travel in places away from our homes! The others can't afford a motor home.
