We enjoyed our stay very much. I do have the complaint of children at the kamp kitchen in the morning. We camped in a tent next to the camp kitchen and we were disruptedin the morning by children fighting and cryin. I understand that its a family campground, but in the morning it would be nice if there could be a rule about children being under better supervision during the a.m.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our quiet hours are posted throughout the park as well as in the map..... the camping kitchen is very popular with our tent campers and is a meeting place for families during breakfast etc. For a quieter place to camp the 150's or 400's are great!

The cabin was over priced. Under the sink was still dirty. There was no radio or tv in the cabin. We liked the designated walking path's between roads, the entertainment was good. If staying in a cabin maybe it should come with a list of things that are provided, so the guest isn't doubling up and bringing items that truly aren't needed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your comments, we've past them along to our staff. The deluxe cabins that sleep 8 have satalite t.v. and all deluxe cabins are fully stocked with everything from shampoo to forks, coffee maker, toasters etc.etc......everything other than linens....

I have been coming to KOA ever since my kids were little. Now I am bringing my grand daughter. We just love it here so much to do. Awesome!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sweet! We appreciate all of our new as well as the many, many returning guest to our park.
Jun 27, 2016
It rained, and water poured in the door! No wonder there was red ants everywhere.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're working on the ants.... we've had a VERY wet Spring and it brings the ant up to the surface. We actually got 3.5 inches of rain in an hour and a half a couple days ago but our ten day outlook is great!
Jun 27, 2016
This is our second time here and we love it. We are already planning our trip next year.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great!
Jun 27, 2016
We had an ok time however not happy about the fact the the water slide and bounce pillow was extra. I don't remember seeing that any where on the website. I'll have to look at the website again. We are a family of six so that would have ended up being way to much money. Not happy and probably won't return.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Every weekend is a different theme....most with free activities, games, crafts, smores on Friday night, nightly wagon rides, volley ball, basket ball, tether ball, bean bag toss, horse shoes, DJ dance, outdoor movie. We are continually looking for ways to lower our cost to our guest. Thanks.
Jun 27, 2016
Had a wonderful time! Staff was very helpful!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Exceeding expectations is what we stive for and we're glad you and your group had a good time at the Hayward KOA.
Jun 27, 2016
The bathrooms are kept very clean and the owners are terrific. The cost of the jumping pillow is too high, and the wood bundles should be larger for the cost.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the thoughts.... The jumping pillow is the first cause of our high insurance cost and we are forced to set our prices according to what we have as expenses.
Jun 27, 2016
Clean and organized campground. Everyone was very helpful and courteous. Lot's of activities planned.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

See our web-site for all weekly themes usually with free activities, games and crafts. Halloween is Labor Day weekend ... haunted house and all! Fun, Fun.
Jun 27, 2016
We had a great time. Very clean and very friendly staff.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks.... We always pass all our guest comments along to our staff. Come back soon.
Jun 27, 2016
Had a great time. We got rained out Saturday night. Tent was soaked inside and out so we broke came and headed home. If we were 30 years younger we would have toughed it out. Great memories at Hayward KOA. We'll be back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Even the rain can be fun! Thanks for coming!
Jun 26, 2016
I reserved online four months ahead and got the worst site in the lot, #81. I was told that online was not the way to make sure of a site even though I put in my comments about the site I wanted.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

If your looking for a particular site, you MUST call and speak to someone IN PERSON. If you make your reservations online, the computor automatically reserves whatever site is next on the list and you get what you get.... The 150's and the south end of the park has larger, quieter sites.
Jun 26, 2016
First time ever at a KOA very impressed!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

At the Hayward KOA.... it's business as usual. Hurry back and thanks for coming, we're glad you had a great time at our park!
Jun 26, 2016
Was a great stay. Little spendy for our one night camping site compared to our other sites throughout our trip. Our wood got stolen & they kindly reimbursed us the next morning. Showers were clean. Great friendly environment!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Other than the wood we're glad you had a great stay! Thanks for coming.
Jun 25, 2016

Lovely campground nestled in pine trees. Pool was heated to 84 and Internet was fast. We will stay longer next time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad we met your expectations! Come back soon.
Jun 25, 2016
Thanks to the owner for helping us with the water heater on our new camper. This was our virgin voyage and it couldn't have been nicer. Very friendly staff.

Very good.... glad we could help.

We had lots of fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Your why we do what we do and we're thrilled you and your family all had an enjoyable time while staying at the Hayward KOA! Christmas in July is coming soon and always a fun time for the kiddos...
Jun 23, 2016
Best KOA we have been to! Tons for the kids to do, friendly staff and clean facilities. Not only will go back, but we will stay for longer next time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have many returning guest who revisit the park many times throughout the season. We look forward to seeing you again. Thanks for your trust.
Jun 21, 2016
The staff was great! We used their service to drop/pick us up at the river with our kayak. The drop off was about 8 miles; pick-up 1/2 mile. They charged us for RENTING a kayak. The owner refused to refund any money stating it was for "transportation." This fee was not posted anywhere. We would've found our own transportation and carried our kayak back. We, as campers were only $$$ to the owner.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your comments. We have our vans to transport our paying tubing/canoe/kyaks customers and must charge anytime a seat is taken in the van as, although this is a camp ground, it is also a business and must operate as a business.
Jun 21, 2016
We have stayed at Hayward KOA several times. The staff are excellent and facilities are kept very clean. Only complaint are about the campers who allow their dogs to continuously bark.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

No unatended pets are allowed in the park and we do not allow barking dogs so if there is ever an issue please let the office know. Thanks

Quick check in. Always easy access to showers even though at capacity. Clean grounds and friendly staff.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. Come back soon.
Jun 20, 2016
The staff is friendly and they are always visible around the campground. The bathrooms are clean and well maintained. There are activities for the kids as well as the whole family. We have been staying at this KOA since the late 1980's. They are continually improving and we will continue to camp there.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sitting still doesn't work here so we are continually looking for ways to exceed your camping expectations and we're glad you enjoy your time here in the park. We appreciate all our new guest as much as our many returning family and look forward to many years to come...
Jun 20, 2016
Our party of 6 had a great time! The grounds are well kept, staff is so friendly and helpful. The owners should be proud of their establishment. We will be back and will recommend to others to come visit.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. We are proud of the park and we would be lost without our awaesome staff.... They help make the Hayward KOA an awaesome place to stay and we appreciate your allowing us the opportunity of serving your and your families camping experience.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great. Come back soon. Labor Day weekend is halloween and the reservations are coming in fast so if you have the time it's always huge fun, fun.
Jun 20, 2016
Love the integration of cabins, tents and RV's side by side. We had a combination of campers in our group. Bathrooms were very clean! Even with our young kids (2 and under) we had plenty of activities.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We host many family reunions and group camping situations and we're thrilled you all had a fun time.
Jun 20, 2016
Great campground if you are looking to stay busy but not ideal to relax. Sites and cabins are very close together as well as cars and golf carts driving my constantly. Love the Hayward area though and not a bad place to stay for a night!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Weenends are busy with week days a liitle more quiet...the 150's and the south end of the park have more privacy and larger sites and offer a quieter setting as well.... Thanks for your thoughts.
Jun 20, 2016
I had a sleepover birthday party for my daughter here, it was a hit! We stayed in a tipi, they lived it! There was so much for them to do!!! We had a blast!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That sounds great. Thanks so much for your spending part of your summer with us....
Jun 20, 2016
Enjoyed the campground during the day including all the activities for the kids. Main complaint is that the quiet hours were not observed. Our family was up till after 130 am because of the noise. We left one day early to ensure our kids would get some sleep.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have security on all busy days and an after hours number should there ever be an issue in the park. The 11PM quiet time is strictly enforced. It is our goal for ALL our guest to enjoy their camping time in our park.
Jun 20, 2016
We loving staying here on Father's Day weekend!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

As always... kids stay free fathers day weekend and this year was a triple delight with it also being Musky festival and the always popular chocolate weekend! Another chocolate weekend is scheduled in August! Each weekend is a different theme and always fun, fun!
Jun 20, 2016
The Hayward KOA is a great place for families with children. So many things to do and ways to keep the children entertained.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks.... whole family fun! Come back soon.
Jun 20, 2016
We once again absolutely loved our stay! We were put into the same site as a couple of years ago which we were super excited about! The only thing we thought of as a suggestion is maybe before events start to possibly have someone drive around the grounds to announce the event was going to start. We missed a bit of the movie but it was all still so fun! Thank you!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Wonderful idea... we've been thinking of how to have an announcement system placed in the park....
Jun 19, 2016
Spectacular WIFI speed!! All campsites are in the shade, the grounds are clean and groomed, and the play area for young people were spectacular! Friendly people all over the place.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We appreciate your noticing. Your why we do what we do and we care about the thoughts of our guest. We'll pass along your comments.
Jun 19, 2016
Very clean bathrooms and showers. Lots to do with the kids.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We clean the shower/rest rooms every 15 minuntes during busy times in the park.... we're glad you noticed. Thanks for the comments.
Jun 18, 2016
Great campground,kids and adults loved it.It is keep up very well.All the people there were very friendly.One thing I would recommend is more hooks to hang cloths in the men showers.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks....Hooks are on the way. We appreciate the thoughts.
Jun 18, 2016
Sites are too narrow--trees block awning & rooms from being extended. Too many dogs tied to trees & barking because owner left them. ATV's are annoying!! We camp for peace & quiet from hustle & bustle--not to party!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We always appreciate our guests comments. We staff the office from 8 AM until 10 PM so if there is ever an issue please see the office or call the 24/7 number posted at the office after hours. We always handle any issue immediantely as we want ALL our guest to enjoy their time in our park. Thank you
Jun 18, 2016
felt like the staff was a little new in the main office/store but very friendly and accommodating.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We opened on May 06 and most of our staff starts training after we open so the spring is always a challaging time. We appreciate your thoughts and your patience as we get closer to our busy season.
Jun 17, 2016
The staff was very friendly and helpful. Facilities were clean. The weekend theme and all the activities were great at keeping the kids happy and busy.

Jun 16, 2016
Nice and clean facilities. We were not very informed of activities, costs, etc. We had to ask about things. It would have been nice if everything was exlained when checking in.

Spring is always our training time.... Thanks for the pointers. We'll pass along your thoughts.
