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

Camp owner and family were vary nice. The camp was a nice old camp secluded, quietness and well maintained.Thanks for a nice stay.

Our site was a long ways from facilities and no fenced dog area, not the spot we had asked for

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We gave you a 50 amp full hook-up pull-thru by a dog walk. Dog walk was right across from where you were parked. If you are not happy with a site you should tell us so we can move you to a site of your liking. All you have to do is speak to someone in our office and we would have moved you. :-)

This is the best KOA we have stayed at, very clean ,well maintained. The owners are very helpful and just super friendly. Look forward to staying there again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It's great to know that campers are enjoying our campground. We certainly enjoy our campers, and extremely glad they want to return.

Nice RV campground. Sites on lower level more to what we prefer. A bit more expensive...too bad campground located in a Dry County. Enjoyed our stay even with the thunder bumpers.

I thought was pricey since we just came from Tennessee where we stayed and was a lot less expensive.

I do not like any campground that charges an extra fee for a 5 year old child. That is outrageous!
Aug 10, 2013
Beautiful grounds, not overly friendly staff. Would not be overly comfortable if it was full, sites close together. Picnic tables are a mess.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comments about the picnic tables. We are checking as I am typing this note.

I drive a 45" coach. This facility is described as Big Rig Friendly. That's a bit of a streatch as the turns are very tight and the trees are all hanging down to 11" not 13 or more. I had to drive my new coach through some of these which dragged on the roof and sides. Bad!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It had been raining and the leaves and branches were wet and heavy. We keep the trees trimmed to the measurements the KOA office tells us. I'm sorry you experienced trouble with the trees and turns. Hopefully there was no damage to your coach.

Great People. Good Attitude. Office smelled strongly of smoking. We were in the back of the area that is where lots of people are living full time. lots of great birds and water effects. sites back there were very close but the owners were really good about keeping rigs separate if they could. they let us check out a hr late. We will stay there again, but up front not in the back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you were not comfortable up on our hill. The sites are needed and used for the customer who does not want to pay for an executive site. The ones down front have 30 and 50 amp, while most of the ones up top are 30 amp only. You are very welcome to stay down front. Thanks for your comments.

Fantastic support without reservations. Thanks

The campground was clean, grounds were very nice, pool was nice, only problem is that one bathroom stall was without TP for two nights. I would stay there again. :)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry that got missed. You are always welcome to come tell us of any problems and we will try to rectify that problem as quickly as possible.

Easy in easy out. Only thing I was disappointed with: We called Friday as we left Hot Springs to let them know we would be after hours and was curious as to what site were being assigned. This means somethign because we had been there last year so we were curious. But instead of making the effort to tell us, they blew us off and told us it would be hanging on the late check in board.

Enjoyed the ducks. It was confusing in the park to find our space, and the enterence was not marked well, there was not a sign of KOA by the hwy it was set back in the trees. Had we not known the park was on the left side of the road we would have missed it

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have road signs and a big 40 ft. sign at the entry way.

The park was very clean, the employees were friendly and accommodating, and we LOVED the ducks!
Jul 25, 2013
Well kept. Nice overbite spot
Jul 24, 2013
Great people and great location for the I40 transient traveller, but not a destination campground.
Jul 23, 2013
Quiet area with lots of shade
Jul 23, 2013
Too expensive and charges for sites were not explicitly marked. Stayed there 5 hours and was charged over $50.00!!!

Beautiful setting, It would be a great place for an extended stay. Friendly staff.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you, not many people feel that way about an overnight park. We have some nice places to shop and eat, visit the historical part of our area. History seems to mean more when you travel and learn it. Interesting places all across the United States of America.

These owners need to retire, as they are not happy there,my contact with both was very unpleasurable. They musy have been having a really bad day.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the bad day we must have had. Didn't mean to spoil anyone else's day. Some days seem so long when you work 12 hours a day every day. I'm not complaining because I have a job and I love people. I enjoy camping like most of you do. Please keep enjoying camping and keep staying at KOA.

Very quiet, lots of shade.

This park was very nice as you drove in. However, the rest of the park could use some improvement. We did not stay in the deluxe sites, but they were no better than the other full hookup sites other than they were at the bottom of the hill. Also, lots of mobile homes here and permanent campers.
Jul 16, 2013
We really enjoyed the campground and hosts. The wi-fi was a little flakey.
