Campground Reviews

Sep 01, 2015
Really nice campground, lots for the kids to do. My ONLY complaints were that most of the kid activities (slide, jumping pillow, bikes, mini golf) all were extra & the camp sites have no privacy. The camp ground is very clean though.

We are not used to camping that close with others, but we did meet some new friends. Over all great for the kids!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Camping is a great way to meet like minded individuals.... Thanks for spending some time with us.

Mainly good. Bathroom unit not always clean/ showers could use an update.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. The South shower house is scheduled for a renovation next Spring!

We had a great time, the grandkids loved the "pirate ship" park as well as the waterslide, pool and bounce bubble. The hayride was a big hit as well. The park was very well kept, everything clean and in tip top shape. If I have to complain about something it would be that there wasn't enough help in the office/snack shop,(always a line) but everyone was very friendly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you all had a fun time..... The office as well as the Red Pine do not have a lot of space and that has limited us to the amount of staff we can fit into those areas.... We are looking into what can be done for both locations to expedite the line... Thanks.

This was our second year staying at the Hayward KOA and it was another fantastic visit. Very friendly and attentive staff, nice accommodations and plenty of fun for the kids!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for returning and we're thrilled you have a fun time at our park. Hope to see you again soon.... after Labor Day, it's a great time to rest up and enjoy the Autumn colors in the North woods.

Fun family place to stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great! Come back for some more fun in the sun! Halloween will be Labor Day weekend.... Haunted house, trick/treating, custom contest, site decorating contest. Bring you décor and costumes and have a blast.

Activities were good for the kids. The charges were pretty rediculous. One tent per campsite is crazy with a large family. We paid just about as much as a hotel after paying tent fees and person fees. I would have liked to know that before hand.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We include up to 4 guest per site in the basic cost. We have volley ball, basket ball, bean bag toss, tether ball, horse shoes pits, swimming pool, games, activities, crafts, themed weekends, 2 play grounds, wagon rides and Friday night s'mores All FREE.
Aug 31, 2015
Everything was perfect. Kids had a blast with everything! I loved how clean everything was and how friendly everyone was.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That's the Hayward KOA. Thanks for noticing and come back soon. We're glad you enjoyed yourselves.

The first night we dealt with drunk people arguing and swearing at 1045pm. We woke up and found someone stole our firewood. We complained to the office. We moved to a new site. This time kids we screaming at the playground at 1100pm. We complained and a worker came to deal with it. He then came by our site and basically announced we were the ones complaining. We will never stay again after 7 yrs.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The quiet hour is 11:00 PM..... Sorry about the wood, we replaced it at no cost. We moved you to another site attempting to accommodate. After 7 years of great service, (or you would not have been returning)....your going elsewhere??? Come again and have some fun just like the last 6 years!
Aug 31, 2015
Very clean, with plenty of activities.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks, Come again. Check out our new YouTube videos posted by recent guest!
Aug 31, 2015
There was a lot of fun activities for the kids and maintenance was very helpful when we had an electrical issue. The pool was nice and facilities were clean. However, we felt the stress of paying for each activity individually and felt like money was flying out of our pockets. We thought the waterslide could be cheaper, and thought there should be a more reasonably priced all inclusive wristban

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comments..... We consider all possibilities.

Very nice staff!!! Very clean bathrooms!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Kudos house keeping.... Thanks for the comments.

Our grand daughter had a good time and didn't mind swimming in the cool temp. She most liked jumping on the pillow. I have a BS degree in Forest and worked for the US Forestry dept some time ago. I was very concerned the nite the wind blew. looking up at the nice Red Pine all I could focus on was the broken limbs, or Widow Makers. You should start a program to trim the dead branches abt 200/year

Are you interested in a job?....
Aug 27, 2015
Stayed in cabin very clean seemed new although rather expensive we will opt for alternative next time so we will have plenty for all the charges for everything else they offer. Kids had a great time just bring plenty of cash or credit so all are satisfied.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying. We're glad the kids had fun...
Aug 26, 2015
Everything about this KOA was awesome. Plenty of stuff to do for the kids. The only thing that was a bummer for is was the site itself. When we booked the site, we explained that we were going to be setting up two tents. The site we were given barely had room for one tent, unless it was a small two person tent. There were gaps in the trees big enough for the tent, but the stumps were still there.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

If there is ever an issue, please see the office and we'll do all able to accommodate your needs. Thanks for visiting.
Aug 26, 2015
we have been coming to hayward koa for 15+ years.its a blast. and by far the most activities of all koa's we have stayed at

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Each week is a different theme and we enjoy putting activities together that gets the guest involved and every one having a fun time. Halloween is coming Labor Day weekend!
Aug 26, 2015
Everything about this campground is great. The facilities and environment were really nice, the people were very pleasant, and their were many things for the children to do.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This is a family park and our guest make it great! Thanks for visiting.
Aug 25, 2015
The camp is kept clean and the staff is helpful. I was not prepared for the significant added costs. What we had to pay for vs. what we got for it was not worth a second visit for us.
Aug 25, 2015
OK experience. Extremely busy and very little private space. Ladies in office were very short, which I get w all the unsupervised kids running around. At 10:30am team was cleaning our site...check out is 11. Rude! Probably will stay elsewhere next time in Hayward. Staff around campground very polite and welcoming.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your words. We appreciate everyones comments as it helps us to continue to improve and it's your enjoyment we work hard to ensure.
Aug 25, 2015
All was great but was noisy and partying until after midnight.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad to hear all was great. Unfortunately once in a while a few folks need reminding that the 11:00 PM quiet hour really means.... please be quieter after 11:00 PM. Mutual respect goes a long way.
Aug 25, 2015
Was our 2nd time camping there. Will return in the future:)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your continued business. Come back soon.
Aug 25, 2015
Fabulous campground. Staff were friendly and happy. The pool is decent size. The water slide (which costs extra) was great. Playground is probably one of the nicer ones. Tubing was sooo much fun. The only negative..the sites are small

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great! Thanks for coming. A 9 feet deep, 80,000 gallon pool with a 320 ft waterslide is not the typical camp ground. We're glad you enjoyed yourselves!
Aug 25, 2015
Had a great campsite. Pool was warm. Wonderful playground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you had a fun time. Come back soon.
Aug 25, 2015
Was a very nice campground, just sucked we had a sick kid for two of the days.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

So sorry! Hopefully you can come back when everyone is feeling better!
Aug 25, 2015
Loved it! Great activities for families and very well maintained. Especially loved the outdoor kitchen. An option may be to offer an optional mini-fridge with the cabins for an extra $10/night?

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you all enjoyed your stay. We know you have a choice in where you camp and we appreciate your spending time at this park. Good thoughts on the fridge....

Had a great time at the Hayward KOA. Grandkids would like to see the Saturday dance longer than 30 minutes.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. The dance Saturday was cut short due to the rain....we had to move the outdoor movie into the pavilion. Normally the dance is from 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM.
Aug 24, 2015
We enjoyed our stay at KOA. There are many activities for the kids and families, the grounds are clean, friendly staff. Negatives: it is busy, the sites are very close together so there is NO privacy, older kids are free range and they aren't very attentive of the little ones (not KOA's fault) so if you have younger kids this may not be for you, as its harder for them to participate.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your comments. We have age appropriate activities throughout the park so we can accommodate different ages of guest. We're glad you had a fun time.
Aug 24, 2015
Sites are to small for the big rigs, Both in length and width. Workers were very friendly and the campground was kept very clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're currently looking at the creation of larger rig sites which is a little challenging in this park. Thanks for the comments.
Aug 24, 2015
We had a good time. There were a couple problems on the jumping pillow, would like to see someone watching the kids there as our friends 4 year old had a kid purposely bouncing him off. We did get someone from the store. There was also another kid later throwing rocks at some of the kids. Otherwise it was a nice place to stay and we will be back

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you had a good time. If there is ever an issue please see the office and we'll take care of the situation. Thanks
Aug 24, 2015
Staff was great!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have a great staff this year and they work hard to make your stay great!
Aug 24, 2015
Wonderful stay!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you liked it. Come again when you have the time.
Aug 24, 2015
Very clean and friendly Staff. I feel at the price of the campsites there shouldnt be an additional cost for golf and jumping pillow, i can see for the water slide but ive never been to a koa that these extra costs are in place.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The jumping pillow is the most costly amenity we have in the park and our cost dictates the prices. We look every year to see how we can lower the cost and will continue as budget allows. Thanks.
Aug 24, 2015
The best KOA campground we ever stayed. Whole family had a great time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Whole family fun no matter the age! We appreciate your comments.
Aug 24, 2015
We had a great time. Our only "complaint" would be the cleaning crew closing the bathroom at 8:30 - time to get kids ready for bed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. We only close the shower houses/rest rooms at night when a problem has occurred such as a running over toilet and we reopen as soon as possible. All hard cleanings take place in the day time hours. We're glad you had a great time at the park. Come back soon.
Aug 24, 2015
The kids loved it! friendly staff. Pool was very cold. Campfire wood bundles were very small but delivered to your site. Very strict on quiet time. We were just sitting at our site and at 1130 security came by to tell us that it is quiet time I apologized and asked if we were being loud and he said the trees carry the noise and then our dog started to bark. So, wasn't happy about that.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We attempt to maintain the pool at 81 degrees although these 42 degree nights don't help! We appreciate everyone that assist in the quiet hour. Most times any noise is not intentional.... the trees hold down the noises and voices carry when the park is very quiet. Thanks
Aug 24, 2015
We were very disappointed with the fact that we had to pay an extra$ 10 a night to put a tent on our RV site to me that just seems like greed the bundles of wood are very small too

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

All sites are restricted to one unit per site. One additional unit is sometimes allowed as long as there is always a maximum of 6 guest per site. This is an nationwide industry standard and we find it a necessary evil in this particular park. Thanks for your comments.
