Cabin Reviews

Aug 02, 2013
Well we arrived on time and they put us in the wrong cabin. We have a family of five and reserved a cabin that can sleep six and we got a cabin for four. We talked to the front desk and they did move us to a bigger cabin but told us we couldn't stay the four nightswe booked because the cabin they put us in was rented the fourth night. So we booked four nights and could only stay three.

So very sorry this happened to you. We did have an issue with online reservations concerning lodging, that problem is fixed now. We hope to have a second chance to show you how really wonderful it is here.

Our cable was out.We reported it Monday & Wed.Not a bayview cabin.View of 2 private homes & trees.Our cabin was dirty upon check in.We reported it same time and was disregarded by staff.The pullout couch was not comfortable to sleep on. The queen bed pulls you to the middle because of dip. The office staff does not answer their phone or return voicemsg. They brushed aside all our concerns.

This was a great campground... Needs to have a better clubhouse and activities for kids...maybe a lifeguard so the kids can enjoy the use of the pool all day...my cabin was infested with flies...Kabin 1 ...would not stay in this unit ...near a driveway and the dumpster ...other than these issues,nice staff...great rates not far from Perdido Fl beaches.....will go back and and send friends

Thank you! We are glad you liked us! Yes, bugs in the summer time in the south are sometimes bad. Luckily we can help when you come inside, just let us know next time you stay and we will take care of them. See you soon.

Great Location! Need to clean the bathrooms!

Was semi disappointed in our cabin. The pull out bed was nasty and very BAD uncomfortable. The cabin had a very bad odor problem - this was a cabin that animals were allowed in but should not have such a strong dog urine smell. Something could be done about that. The decor was great. People were very friendly.

when we arrived we were informed that there was no cabin for 6 that we had registered for available. we had to stay in a cabin for 4. very disappointed.

We had several "odd" encounters with a drunk resident of the koa and an employee as well who we were told was drinking earlier in the evening. The cabins were filthy and many of the porches/common areas smelled of cat urine. The flies were a huge issue due to the maggot infested garbage area. Most staff was friendly but accommodations were less than acceptable. AC, wifi and TV never worked well

Disappointing! We rented a Kabin and ac was off when we arrived and it took over an hour to cool the Kabin to a bearable temperature. Girl at check in was more interested in texting than greeting or taking care of us. Garbage can outside the Kabin was full of rotten meat..disgusting! Bathrooms by the Kabin are not ventilated/no ac. Showers and main bathrooms are quite a distance from the kabins.

We have stayed at really nice KOA Campgrounds and this one truely dissapointed us. The Cabin needs updated and cleaned . The camp site was unkept and muddy and very difficult to get in and out of. This has made us decide from now on that we will inspect the site first before setting up. Staff was poorly organized and rude. The security was inadaquate with an open gate for possible intruders.

Ienjoy my stay I would come back again

Roaches. After that, not much matters. Bedroom door so squeaky that it woke everyone up each time it was opened. Kitchen supplies very limited. The air conditioning did work nice.

This was the worst KOA we have ever stayed in. Dirty cabin, dirty restrooms, grass not mowed, management put us in wrong cabin then we had to move. They would not even talk to us about compensation for our inconvenienance. Very poor customer satisfaction. We are NOT "Happy Campers".!!!

We stayed in the 6 person lodge(DS). Very small but we loved the inside woodwork! Extra care taken in planting vegetation. Had my morning coffee and saw dolphins while chilling on the porch! My boys (17, 19) really got into the karaoke on Sat. nite. Down side were those pesky gnats and the mucky bay water floor. Pier was nice and the pool too. Staff is Very friendly and downhome.

Needs a little more up keep at this KOA!

The "k"ottages are lovely and more up to date then expected! Bugs are TERRIBLE outside! They swarm you! The beach that's close is just ok! It's far off the interstate! Nice pool! Overall would stay again!
Jun 29, 2013
we had a great time and we are going back in july
Jun 29, 2013
Great and friendly staff. Not as much for kids (tweens) to do other than the pool compared to other koa sites but we enjoyed our stay and will be back.
Jun 27, 2013
We will definetly come back. People there are really nice.
Jun 25, 2013
great privacy no loud noise after 9pm restful stay

Nice ! Not far from beaches either

Attitudes are poor, not helpful, overcharge & say "we're privately owned" to explain extra fees (overcharged $63 with no breakdown why), charge extra for father's day even though our child was free, dirty bathrooms with no cleaning ...never had this type of experience at any other KOA!!!
Jun 23, 2013
Nice place...clean, friendly staff. Everyone was helpful. Like that my cabin had a separate room and that it had an oven. Down side was the sleeper sofa my kids ended up sleeping my bed and my husband did not let out the sleeper bed but slept on the sofa.
Jun 22, 2013
Very Very Quite! One lady in the office was very rund younger little girl, but we were not there to see her! All the other employees were great...even the guy laying the patio was a nice guy.....as my 6 year old had to know what her was doing!
Jun 18, 2013
I really enjoyed it and will be back soon
Jun 17, 2013
We thoroughly enjoyed it and will DEFINITELY be back in the future!

Its a great place to stay.

I tried to call for 3 days, leaving a message everytime, to make reserv. No one returned my calls until Wed. By then the cottages were all taken except one, that was there most expensive. I also emailed. She told me that she would put me in an easy site to get into, which was terrible. One row before that row was a very nice site and was a straight shot to get into. The sewer next to us was bad

One area that concerned me was the amount of recyclable material I saw being thrown out. I would expect KOA to be at the forefront of recycling because it caters to campers who tend to be more environmentally aware than the general public. Please consider a recycling program.

Camping out but not extreme. Had girls so got deluxe cabin w bathroom. Enjoyed stay

This is an RV parking lot, not camp grounds. We sold our motorhome because we like to actually CAMP. The tent sites were so small and so close together it's obvious they were previously pull-thru sites. Not fun. We rented a Cabin the last night. We won't be back.

The sofa bed in our cottage was old and very uncomfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful!

The beachfront area for the Kabins was delightful. It was quiet, beautiful and comfortable. It was nice to have a fridge and TV. The shower and bath were close by, which is great at night!
Jun 05, 2013
Very comfortable and laid back, will came back for vacation again.
Jun 05, 2013
This place is truly awesome! The only bad part I can see is the gnats!!! Other than that I have no complaints!!!
Jun 03, 2013
This campground was very clean, in good repair, and had a very well stocked camp store. Most importantly to me, the campground lived up to all the hype in their advertising. I will definitely recommend this KOA to friends and family!
