Tent Reviews

Sep 02, 2014
Tent pitches are very small and the bathroom/shower facilities for the campers need updating. The beach is great and it was great to camp right by it. Expected a little more for a KOA, not the best I have stayed at!

The customer service left a lot to be desired. Additionally, it would have been nice if the hot tub was available after dark. At the very least, the time of close should have been posted on the website.

Not well maintained. Sites are packed together...you can hear someone in the next site whispering. Pretty Bay view, lousy sites.

The kids loved the pool, and we had a great time. The tent sites were a little too close together for our liking, but luckily those beside us were friendly and we enjoyed talking to them. There were gnats (common around here) but at least they didn't bite! The people who worked there were really friendly, as well.

Nice place and staff. Clean restrooms. Probably not the best place for a tent- there's not much in the way of privacy

We really enjoyed our stay. The owners have gone out of their way to make this Kampground great.

It was awesome! I loved the site by the water. The Mosquitos where bad but what could you do? The campground and the utilities was clean, and had a nice benifit for a child who was ill. Can't wait to come back!

I loved the staff and the campground. The bathrooms were much better than past reviews make them out to be (maybe they listened and renovated). I recommend that you add Family restrooms to the future updates/improvements. Parents with young children would put a lot of value in that convenience.

Great idea! We are glad you liked us! See you soon.

I used the tent site along the the banks. It was great to hear the waves as I feel asleep. The facility's were clean and maintained and the staff were very friendly. Thanks for a great stay

It is a nice campground, but the map online made it seem that tent sites were near the water. When I arrived I was given the smallest site on the property no where near the water.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

So sorry about that. Yes we have tent sites that are water front and some that are not. We hope to see you soon and just make sure you request a water front tent site upon your next stay. See you soon.

The camp sites by the water provided an awesome view!

I do not know why this is called "Gulf Shores" it's about 30 minutes from Gulf Shores. The bathrooms are in desperate need of an overhaul.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your feedback. We are working on updating our bathhouses. Yes we are 25 minutes from Gulf Shores, but its well worth it ;) If you would like, next time you visit, we are just 3 minutes from Pensacola FL, 15 minutes from the gulf beaches and the Naval Air Museum. We hope to see you soon

RV sites are spaced much too close to each other. Very little room between spaces for any outside activity. Bathroom/showers are very hot. Grass/weeds needs mowing.
Jun 25, 2013
Beautiful tent site right on the water. Staff and guests were all very friendly. Pool, hot tub, bathrooms, clean and nice. We had a great time here.

The showers needed working vents. We would sweat while trying to put our clothes on which defeated the purpose of the shower.

Convenient to stores, restaurants, and gas stains; and the beach is about 20 minutes away. Clean swimming pool and bathrooms. The bay is good for fishing and boating.

Nice & clean. Staff was very friendly. Campsites a bit small. A little overpriced.

Loved this camp ground. Even over a busy holiday weekend, we never had any issues. The only thing we hope before our future visit, is that they fix the womens bathroom to either have a fan, or working a/c unit. My wife found that to be the only real complaint, as it was hot and humid in the mornings getting ready, and warm in the evenings.

It was fine for one night. The spots were quite close to one another, but the people were very friendly and helpful.

Too many campsites too close together. That's OK for trailers and motorhomes because the walls provide some insulation from the noise of your neighbors. But, when tent camping and neighbors set up five feet away then argue till midnight, it's not fun. Lose 15 to 20% of your sites for big improvement. It's a nice property and very friendly staff. Waterfront is beautiful

My boyfriend and I take an annual trip to Gulf Shores, and we love to stay at the Lillian KOA! We can camp right on the ocean and wake up to lapping waves. The staff is super friendly and very helpful. We enjoy the quiet location as well. If you're looking for a lovely place to relax and unwind, the Lillian KOA is for you.

Rained the four days we were there.Did not get to enjoy the camp at all.Men's showers need new shower heads.Staff very friendly.

Very friendly staff, nice campground.
Apr 08, 2013
The campsites where way to close to each other. It felt like you were sharing a campsite with campers to left or right of you.

The Kampground is TOO tight. The area where we paid to stay was between 3 other tents with dirt bikes etc and NO room for us. We were moved to a different site ON the water and NO electric. The facility was old and other customers were complaining of electrical issues with no worry of employee and was NOT AT ALL well kept! We didn't enjoy our stay at all! Worst KOA yet! We are UNHAPPY
Apr 01, 2013
The narrowest sites after two years at several KOA's. Check in with less than 10 words - no welcome. Trash on the site and NO privacy.
Mar 31, 2013
Very nice kampground. My family really enjoyed staying here.

In reality, there is NO (reliable) WiFi. It needs upgrading. This is where little dogs come to bark all day.
Mar 21, 2013
Wish the tent sites had a little more to them instead of just dirt. They didn't have bar-b-que grills.
Mar 20, 2013
Great tent site by beach, but electricity was off while we were there. Office and Game rooms were messy. Too much stuff laying around. They need to clean up those two areas, and rating would move up a couple of levels.
Mar 11, 2013
The facilities were great, and the staff was awesome! I will be back.
