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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have a great staff this year and they work hard to make your stay great!

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.

Nice campground with great activities and facilities for kids.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very good. Thanks for visiting!
Aug 24, 2015
My girls were excited as soon as we pulled into the park. The activities that were available kept them busy the whole time we were there. The staff was welcoming right from when we pulled up. Vicki at the desk was amazing, she had us checked in within minutes. My phone was down and I needed repairs on my truck. She was more than happy to help. The 3 hour canoe trip was beautiful.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great! It's always good to hear when everyone has a fun time! Way to be Vicki. She and our other staff members have been great this year and we really appreciate all their hard work. Hope your truck is ok.
Aug 24, 2015
I had my daughters family in one cabin my sons in another. We played mini golf swam, jumped on the bouncer had caricatures done, went tubing relaxed by the campfire, visited Hayward, hayrides and a dance and movies. The kids played in the arcade, on the playground and one the water slide. We were there from Thursday to Sunday. The weather was nice couldn't ask for a more enjoyable vacation. Thank

We had a great time exclamation staff was very accommodating they even helped us with our reservation so that our two groups could be closer together within the campground. The kids love all of the activities. We will be back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We'll look for your return. So many of our guest repeat throughout the season. We enjoy hosting family reunions as well.
Aug 23, 2015
There are a great many things for kids to enjoy here; everything is very reasonably-priced and the staff is extra-kind and patient. The plentiful mature red pines are a very attractive feature of the grounds. All that is needed and more for great family memories is available here. --Benjamin, Duluth, MN

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You allowing us to be a part of making those great memories is appreciated. The little ones will remember camping for years to come and we're glad you chose the Hayward KOA for your families stay. Come back soon.

We have always stayed at this KOA with our kids. 10 years later,we brought our2 granddaughters. The upgrades and changes are fabulous. They're favorite was the jumping pillow. ( they are 2 & 4).

In the 30 years that my family has been camping at this campground, the power outage that occurred during the weekend of Aug. 14-16, 2015 was the first time I have ever seen that happen. It was unfortunate for the ones without power, but I hope they will try this KOA again in the future!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks so much for the confidence you have placed in our park over the last many years. Excel had an underground transformer blow and it took a while to repair but all is well. Thanks for your business and hurry back soon.
Aug 21, 2015
Very nice campground. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. Wasn't a fan of having to pay extra for waterslide, mini golf, and jumping pillow. Overall good stay.

Thanks for your thoughts. Glad you had a good time.

Great family atmosphere! We loved the tall pines.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. Family is what matters and we're glad yours had a fun time under the tall pines and star light sky.

Loved the cabins! Would recommend increase in rates and make it all inclusive though so kids don't have to asking for additional monies.

This was a great place to spend time with my kids and grandchildren. everyone had a great time. One issue I would like to make note of is that all your lodges are priced the same, but some of the lodges were a lot better than others. For example, the first night I stayed in KL6 and it was very nice, the second and third nights I stayed in KL2, and I was disappointed in that lodge as a comparsio

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Good points..... thanks for your thoughts.

This was our fourth and final year at your KOA. I would strongly suggest that you work on the staff and how they accommodate and change their attitudes to the guests! Not pleasant at all from the lady at the desk to the gentleman moving your stuff around the pool!! Then to top off while making reservation not having your calls returned and always unwilling to accommodate a group in ridiculous! You

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Are you sure you were at our park? We get a HUGE amount of very positive comments on the helpfulness and friendliness of our staff. We accommodate dozens of groups throughout the season and we pride ourselves in our customer service which is testified to by dozens of guest reviews.

Our last minute plans led us to stay at KOA. We have experienced KOA black hills s Dakota. Loved it there. We were disappointed we had to pay for water slid etc. Should be included because site is spendy. We will be returning next July but for lumber jack days where activity will be away from camp ground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great.... Thanks for coming. Lumberjack weekend is great and we have a shuttle service which takes you to/from the park directly to the competition. No parking problems!. See you next year.

It was a hot week-end, the power in the park went out all around us but owner did a great job restoring the power.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are very glad we were able to deal with that situation with a fair amount of ease. Excel really worked quickly to replace their blown transformer and all was well! Come again soon.

Great stay!!!
