No space between campers, didn't spray for weeds, stickers in dogs paws and our shoes.

Owners go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. Campground is beautiful and well kept.

Very clean . A mixture if permanent residents and camping sites. Well stocked store with friendly management.

My first impression was not so bad, but after paying and going inside to park it went downhill fast. This camp needs a lot of routine upkeep to be a place I'd want to stay again. It had not been mowed in a while. There were several dangerous dead trees hanging over camp sites. There were too many permanent residents. I was disappointed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have been working with limbs and trees for several days now. Some of these require a bucket truck that we have to schedule for use. Thank you for your comments. They are concerns of ours also. As for the grass we mow some grass everyday, some of the grass that grows here comes up very quickly

The campground is fairly nice but needs better maintenance. The older male host is the grouchiest person I've ever seen that has to deal directly with the public. If he hates his work that much, he should find other work.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The man you spoke of does not work here he lives in one of the mobile homes. He was merely greeting you with a good morning. The toilet paper was put in the rest room as you left the office. Thank you for letting us know that the toilet paper was out. Sorry that Scott offended you

Beautiful place, amazing lake, however, not used to being greeted by people with facial piercings/tattoo's. Restroom was without toilet paper in the morning, not a good way to start your day.

Staff with attitude, check-ins at 1:00am three feet from us, large unmarked ditch at entry to site. Not going there again...ever.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Camping can be a wonderful experience and goes much easier when campers come in before dark. We were not there to check you in at 1 a.m. We have a beautiful park and are sorry that you did not enjoy it.

This is one of the only KOA's that did not meet our expectations. The grounds need maintenance & the reception was not terribly friendly (Mrs, not Mr). This is a good location to pass on unless desperate for a spot to pull in.

This is not a big rig site as we were told on the phone. Difficult to get into and out of site with large rigs.
Sep 17, 2013
Great park, enjoyed our stay!
Sep 16, 2013
Passing through and the owners were very nice and friendly. The bathrooms and showers were clean. We enjoyed our stay. It was definitely a family friendly place.

Very nice campground with an attentive staff. Nicely treed sites and very clean.

do not place overnights within the residence area. site next to us argued most of the night. will not be back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You should have called the office to let us know that this was going on while it was happening. It was not residential it was another camper. Now it is too late to take care of the situation. That night would have been much better. Sorry you were kept up.

Great KOA and host. Beautiful green trees and grass.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Not all campgrounds have a beautiful setting. Ours is just that. A place to rest and relax after a day of driving on the road. Have a nice hot shower, a quiet dinner and rest for the next day. Thanks for staying at our KOA.

The setting was beautiful. It was very spacious with a gorgeous pond with ducks and geese. It had lots of other amenities. It is my favorite and the best KOA where I have stayed. It was very clean and neat. The staff was extremely helpful. I very highly recommend it.

Nice park, excellent service, great location!

Lovely setting in the woods. Wifi & cable good. Facilities were clean, but old.

Just wish pull through spaces had a little more room betweensites

Jason checked us in and escorted us to our very unappealing site in the crowded mobile home park section of this campground. Why there instead of an uncrowded area close to the pond, I do not know. When he went over the rules with me in the office, he talked so fast, I could barely understand a word he was saying. We might have stayed 2 nights if it had been a more pleasant experience.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Jason has been asked to slow down when registering customers. The area you were put in was the type of hook-up you requested and for the length of your camper. If we use the larger sites for the smaller units, then when the bigger ones come, we have no place to put them.

The mens showers were in unkept condition. The faucets would not shut off or were about to fall off the wall. Bathroom was dated.
Aug 30, 2013
Disgusting,Put amid long term campers with dogs tied under trailers,clothes hanging on lines. Duck droppings everywhere. Did not even consider venturing outside. They even questioned why we wanted 50 amp servvice. Staff in front of the office smoking. Everyone very unfriendly.
Aug 30, 2013
Hardly any room at all. The person that waited on was polite but did not wantto be there.
Aug 29, 2013
Very friendly at check-in!

Old campground needs updating. Shower had broken curtains and poor ventilation,poor water regulation. Overflowing dumpster, broken bottles and cans on ground. Helpful staff

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have new shower curtains going up in the morning. Sorry we did not come across as pleasant, my husbands sister died and we were a little out of sorts. Hope you will enjoy a better time at the next KOA. Sorry we did not enhance your day. A camping experience is supposed to be a pleasurable one
