Campground Reviews

Jul 05, 2016
We were very disappointed in our campsite. We were supposed to have a swing, fire pit and grill. None of that was the case. Also, we were squeezed into a spot too small for our large camper. Even one of the workers said we needed a bigger spot. Our neighbors were so close we could reach out the door and touch. Very disappointing. We will not stay there again.

We booked a 30/50 sight. When we got to sight only had 50 outlet our converter was for 30. Manger tried to run an extension cord from our site to the electrical box at next sight. 110 was not working on that site. They had someone come out to fix 110 and to replace GFI also. The manager did offer to move us to another site. Site had no cement pad, shade or swing like the site we paid for.

We rented a cabin which was very close to the water. Beautiful view! Lots of annoying nats which may be normal for this area. Other than that it was a great stay!

There was 6 steps between our camper entry steps and the next campers sewer dump, less from the dump to the picnic table. The pool and hot tup were so filthy we eould not use them. The grab bar for the hot tub was broken and unusable. We were not given a choice of sites and several were open. Grounds were unkempt. Will Never stay there again. KOA corporate should come in and clean this place up.

We were on a 30 day, 29 state road trip. We stayed at 9 KOA'S during the trip and this was by far the worst. I haven't been to another KOA whose office closes at 6pm. That seems crazy early to me. We arrived after closing and found that our map was not in the late check in box. Thankfully someone was there and got us the map and showed us where our cabin was, but failed to give us a key.

It was clean in cabin. Need to upkeep pool better

The bugs where so bad that you couldn't sit outside!!!! The neighbors hookup to their sewage was right next to our picnic table!! I was told when I reserved our spot we had shade, full sun!!! The whole camp lost water three times!!! We couldn't wait to leave!!!

This was my 2nd time here. This time was much less pleasurable due to the amount of gnats and flies. We decided to stay in a cabin, but unfortunately the main dumpster is kept right beside the cabins attracting tons and tons and annoying insects, instead of locating it away from the cabins. I really enjoyed my trip, just not while I was in the park.

We hope to have you back! The lower level trash area has been moved away from that area. We recommend a screened room and a fan to make outside summertime in the south more enjoyable.

sites were ontop of each other way to close . The showers were very nice and clean not to bad for 1 night

Jun 29, 2016
Very nice cottage and great environment! My family will definitely be staying here again on our next vacation!
Jun 29, 2016
The camp is very nice,only suggestion is another dumpster near the office. It would be a help for persons with disabilities.
Jun 29, 2016
The staff was very friendly and helpful and the campground was very clean. I personally think the sites are too close together and the picnic tables are very tiny. (Perfect for my four year old, but not a family of five)
Jun 29, 2016
great stay except for the millions of gnats that kept attacking us and kept us indoors

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

bugs are bad in the south we recommend a fan, screened room and bug spray when outdoors. Here's a little secret dryer sheets in your pockets help!

Loved walking to the water and seeing dolphins swimming. Very relaxing and calm place to stay.
Jun 28, 2016
We get there and someone was camping on our site. The office was closed. Turns out it was squatters. We had to remove them ourselves. After driving 12 hours we could not set up camp until they were gone. Then we asked for a refund for Friday night, none was given. Even though they said they would. The lot was COVERED in fire ants, which could have been treated. The camp was shabby.
Jun 28, 2016
Absolutely great KOA! I stayed on the property for 2 months as I was transferring from Keesler to Pensacola until our house sold and the staff and facilities were hands down the BEST! Highly recommend! VERY MILITARY FRIENDLY and SUPPORTIVE!

It's a great camp ground, but it's too far away from anything. The closest place to get anything to eat is 7.5 miles away and it's about 20 miles from the beach.

I'm so sorry you missed out on yummy chubby's pizza that is on grounds and 2-5 minute drive to some of our favs r'reileigh's daybreak café,ponderosa and crazy horse café great local favorites!

This campground is adorable, it could use a little TLC on the inside of the cabins, but it is camping. They addressed any issues we did have quickly. The bay is beautiful as well as the nearby beaches.We would stay again.
Jun 27, 2016
The cabin was not clean. It had dog hair every where. Other than that we enjoyed our stay.

We had a great time! Everyone was friendly and everything was clean. We will definitely go back!!
Jun 27, 2016
The grounds were very clean. The dock had great fishing. The staff was very pleasant!! WE will definitely stay here again!!!
Jun 27, 2016
Decent,dirt site with very tight fit for our 36 ft. Class A. Didn't use their facilities but they appeared clean and well kept. Could use more trash receptacles!

We are sorry our pool is beautiful now we did have a lot of rain and it was foggy come back soon and check it out!

Very friendly, nice lots, some shade some sun. The picture of the bay was very deceiving. Not much beach at all or places to sit at the water front.
Jun 26, 2016
Was a little disappointed pool was not working when we were there... stayed at a lot of KOA campgrounds that were a lot nicer... this area being close to the golf coast I thought would be extra nice disappointed the cabins weren't the cleanest.
Jun 26, 2016
Great location-close to fishing and beaches. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Cabins are clean and have great front porches!
Jun 26, 2016
Women's bathroom was dirty and all the toilets were full of paper and waste. Won't stay there again.
Jun 26, 2016
The cabin and the grounds were great! Kinda disappointed with the pool though, it was closed for 2 days for cleaning. Oh well we survived, but would've been nice to swim.
Jun 26, 2016
We left way before it was time for us to leave. Cabin smelled just like a nasty dumpster which one was right by our cabin. Thought that the campground had a time for everyone to quite down but there was a group of teenagers running up and down the pier playing loud music most of the night and they even slept on a boat that was in the water by the pier. worst experience ever there

Too far from Gulf Shores

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

yes Gulf Shores is a 25 minute drive but the sandy white beaches of Perdido Key Florida and Pensacola Fl is just across the Lillian bridge!
Jun 25, 2016
road was broke, cars drive fast and all the way round even on silent hours.In comparison with other KOA's we visited, you need more renovation. We saw you started already.
Jun 24, 2016
This was our 2nd year to stay in the cabins! Easy drive to the beach and local activities.
Jun 24, 2016
Great water front. Good camp grounds. Clean
Jun 24, 2016
Sites in my opinion were below standards for a KOA and the rates charged. That being said, pool and pool patio area was nice.

Had some problems with our cabin StarFish. Office helpers tried to take care of things. Mentioned upon checkout that the threshold was completely rotted out at front door. Therefore door would not lock securely. But the key would not work in the deadbolt anyway. Handle on kitchen cabinet is broken, A/C drips onto the futon bed, bathroom door will not close, window in bathroom needs curtain.

Had a great stay
Jun 20, 2016
I had requested a cancellation due to a family emergency and they responded and said that due to holiday policy they cant give a refund but there no Holiday during my dates of 6/12-6/17 and therefore they charged me the full amount which i felt was terrible.
Jun 20, 2016
The atmosphere is awesome, the campgrounds, restrooms and laundry area, are very clean. My complaints: I was not informed that the lodges were not equipped with a stove/oven. The a/c was not sufficient. The freezer in the little refrigerator was completely frozen over, we had to keep everything in coolers. The overall cleanliness of the lodge was not acceptable.
Jun 20, 2016
The room was nice and clean. However, the bathrooms were not nice and pretty gross in general. My husband and I really did not enjoy using them. Additionally, our air conditioner began functioning poorly at the end of our stay.
Jun 20, 2016
everything and all employees very helpful. Laundry a plus.
Jun 20, 2016
Staff as usual friendly ,always with a smile...
Jun 20, 2016
Site was not very nice. Plenty of better ones stayed empty. Web said no premium sites available but were unused while there.
Jun 19, 2016
We loved the bay! We saw a dolphin and the kids caught a crab and shrimp. The staff was polite and helpful. The deluxe sites were nice and spacious. The bathhouse needs some improvement and was not as clean as some others I have stayed at. Laundry was the most expensive that we have encountered at $2.50 per wash and $2.50 to dry. Pool does not have a light in it for after dark. We would stay again
Jun 19, 2016
Nice and clean campground. Staff was very nice and addressed any problems we had quickly. Overall we had a very good time.
