Very clean,convenient, helpful manager, great pool.

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

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.
Jul 26, 2013
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.

Nice quiet camp ground, upon arrival the first exposure to the staff was not what one should expect from a KOA, the individual was a bite rude and apparently not very cordual during registration. Based on this initial exposure to this KOA we will not return to this site in the Future.
Jul 15, 2013
I was disappointed with the RV parked next to me. Generator on all night and smell of diesel. Wife got sick.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are very sorry that happened. They did not have their electric cord with them. They went to their sons house to spend the night. We did not know they had returned to the campground. Had we known they had returned we could have moved them away from other campers. We apologize.
Jul 15, 2013
This is the worst KOA we have ever been to. The people were freindly but the sites were small, cramped, and filled with litter. We were an overnight stay and were put in the very back of the campground near the unsightly permanent trailers. The only bathhouse is at the bottom of the hill at the office. The pool was great. The women's bathroom had 3 showers and one had mold on the shower fixture

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Not mold, rust. Treated and shining.
Jul 14, 2013
Campground was well kept. Didn't like camping next to the long term trailers. Pool needs to stay open later
Jul 13, 2013
We got free dried hashbrowns and they took us right to our spot. Very nice folks and a beautiful campground. Thank You
Jul 12, 2013
Beautiful location; quiet country w/pond but the duck crap all over the concrete patios is a bit much. Suggest you have someone hose them down once a day.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That is a great idea. We will have someone hose those patio's off. Thank you for the suggestion.
Jul 11, 2013
The personnel were very nice and helpful.We only stayed one night so we didn't get to spend much time there.
Jul 09, 2013
Love the saltwater pool! Enjoyed our stay at the Alma KOA. The management is very friendly and attentive to our stay. Not the best KOA I've been to, but conveniently located to visit some family we have.
Jul 05, 2013
I was a very good stay. The staff were friendly and helpful. The restrooms were clean. All the hookups worked as they should.
Jul 04, 2013
Management very rude and gouchy

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.
Jun 29, 2013
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.
Jun 28, 2013
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.

EZ on/off to I40, nice accommodations.

Beautiful grounds and helpful staff. Wish the pool was open later and the store a little more stocked.

Helpful staff and large nice grounds.
