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.

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.


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.


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

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.


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.

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.

This koa was a pleasure to be at. Large sites and well manicured grounds. The staff were very friendly.

We have stayed here several times over the last 14 years.Staff is very friendly and helpful.I have seen many improvements since current owners took over. Looking forward to another visit in July and using the nice pool.

This was a beautiful spot to enjoy nature, I loved the ducks walking around and the birds singing in the morning was so beautiful to hear, different birds from the ordinary run of the mill birds. The restrooms/showerhouse were older but had everything needed.

Nice setting off of the interstate. Site this time was much improved. lower sites have had nice concrete patios added (Pls be careful not to run over a corner and crack one which has happened to the owners a few times!). Nice additional doggie area right outside our site. They plan to upgrade all sites.

Very clean and well maintained. Many KOA's we have stayed in are tired and rundown but this one is excellent and the best we have stayed in. The people checking us in made us feel welcome and they led us to our spot and helped us set up. We recommend it highly.

Great KOA! Kids loves the ducks, the pond was really nice. Nice place to stay.

The owner was nice, but he is clearly in over his head ... Lack of capital and help. The place is old & run down ... Poor appearance. Bathroom was clean.
