Campground Reviews

Jul 08, 2013
There is not much we can add. We had a nice time and everything was as we would expect at a nice KOA.

The bath house was nice and clean. Our tent spot wasn't mowed recently and we were far away from everything and there were plenty of other empty spots. There was a loud party going on at a house on the KOA campus and their driveway went through the KOA! Cars and trucks were passing by our tent all night long, there was loud music and shouting. We did not feel safe in our tent.

I was a very good stay. The staff were friendly and helpful. The restrooms were clean. All the hookups worked as they should.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Put someone else in the office and took a much needed vacation. Thank you for letting us know that it was time to get away. We watch campers having a great time every day. We don't get to camp anymore, just watch you all have a wonderful time. Please come back after our vacation and try again.

On the road and was very nice for the overnight. Water pressure a bit low, but not a real problem. Very nice and friendly place.

The campground was nice enough but the office closes at 6pm. We were held up in traffic east of Little Rock and did not arrive until 730. The office was closed, the swimming pool was locked up, and therefore we could not access any activities for our young travelers. This was the height of summer - their busy season. They are losing money.

Very unfriendly staff. Campground in very poor condition. Should call this a full time park!

Had a great stay at this KOA. Good location, close to the freeway but far enough to be peaceful. Nice ground, and friendly staff.

When we checked in, I told the desk we had problems with Internet access the last time. I was assured it was better now, but still was not able to get on to check our email.

Only complaint is the pull thru sites are very close to each other.
Jun 08, 2013
The grounds are somewhat unkempt. The gravel pads have grass and weeds growing in the gravel. The wifi service was only available if we were within 30 feet of the tranmitter. The electrical service at our site and adjacent sites were not installed per the National Electrical Code; outlet covers are mising-a danger to children. Traffic noise from the nearby interstate highway.

Very nice. Everything was clean. The park is well maintained. Our cabin was ready for us.

A beautiful park with a pond a ducks and geese. We will be back.

We upgraded to a cabin due to the weather, it was moldy and musty and we had to air it out over 4 hours. The restrooms were not clean....a toilet had over run sometime in the day but no one cleaned it up, poor maintenance at this location!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The smell in the cabins is from the new mattresses. The urinal ran over because the handle stuck. It has been repaired.

First spot was to small, asked for a bigger spot they were very nice and found us a great spot, would recommend them. We only spent the night there, very easy to get to from the freeway and very quiet at night.

Staff was unfriendly and curt. Reserved site was among permanent resident area with chained pit bull.

Ungracious reception at check in. Very unattractive campsite, messy.
May 30, 2013
our stay was very relaxing, exactly what we wanted to do, in a kabin that was up a hill with a pretty nice view, we both have hectic jobs and wanted to just ''chill'' which we did, even had the ducks stay close for our visit, we will go back

Beautiful park with a small lake @ trees in a quiet setting. The trees had been trimed, easy in @ out, clean,frendly @ helpful.

the campground itself was nice, and the staff was excellent, while on duty. The WiFi did not work. I had a rack of emails to send and respond to that night, and all of it was late. I was able to download about 4 emails, when the wifi crashed. I called the office, which was closed, left a messsage, and got no response, ever. I did my business elsewhere.

This KOA was quiet yet very calm for a holiday weekend. Facilities were ok, grass was not mowed. Other than that the staff were very hospitable and constantly asking about our stay while eager to accommodate. Would stay again if in the area.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You cannot mow when it is raining. We mow most days and have other jobs to do also.

Very nice campground and nice management. We arrived after hours and was not impressed with the after hour procedure. Also, it was only 6:30pm and it's light until 9. In summer, the office should stay open a little later.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do stay open later after the pool is open. It opened Memorial Day and is open till Labor Day weekend.

Great and nice people. The campsite was immaculate and the campground was beautiful. Definitely staying there again.
May 24, 2013
The campground has lots of potential, but was not very well maintained in the back area. I noticed the cabins were rotting and there are permanent residences there that are not very well-kept. The front office area and swimming pool were nice. It was just not the typical KOA atmosphere.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

the rotting wood on the cabins is in the midst of being fixed. We have fixed tons of stuff this year. You can't fix everything in one day. Sorry we didn't meet your expectations.
May 22, 2013
Operators were great - very solicitous of campers during a dangerous weather event.

Nice and quiet as we like it. My only issue is the number of long term residents. Not a problem because transit workers need a place to stay but after a while, there campsite looks a bit messy. Other than the one issue, excellent place to stay.
