Campground Reviews

I like the campground but I honestly think they should make 2 different areas because quiet time at 11:00 pm is not for us. We are all late 30's with kids and socialize at night because we do kids stuff during the day so that being said having a rude man coming over telling us to keep it down when all we were doing is talking is to much! And I heard the same story from different campers I met.

When paying a good amount for a campsite, some things should be included.Wristbands were overpriced. Most of staff were friendly, could relax a little on quiet hours.

The staff is excellent

Thank you....they really work hard!

Really missed the tie dyed t-shirts that you could make! Closer monitoring of the jumpy pillow. Maybe have a rule that children under 12 need to be supervised by parent when using.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great ideas! Check out the web site for updated activities in 2014, tie-dye is back! Thanks

The only problem I have is there is not enough parking for the Cabins. I had one for the weekend and there was barely any room for one vehicle to park and not block any part of the road.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are aware of the parking and we're working hard to limit the amount of guests staying per site, in order to allow our regular paying guests enough room for their vehicles. Glad you had a nice visit.

Wonderful place to stay with children! Lots to do! Our group had a blast but we think that the bouncy pillow should be free, also the 11pm quiet time is just fine however we were sitting by the fire talking and told to be quiet. Maybe they should have a side for people that want to stay up past 11pm and able to talk outside and then a quiet side as well to please all. But overall a great stay!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your thoughts. With as many trees in the park as there are... the sounds/talking is held near the ground and really travel throughout the park. We always wish for all guests to enjoy themselves, but 11 PM is as late as we dare go. Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay.

We stayed in a clean, comfortable cabin. The pool was refreshing and fun. Tubing was a blast and afordable. The fire ring was not up to par and we didn't like being next to the dumpsters due to the smell but the employee's were willing to bring us a fire ring that worked great. The staff was friendly and helpful.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the comments. ALL new fire rings are on our list of improvements. Glad the staff helped you out. See us in 2014

The amenities and bathrooms were great and staff was helpful. The biggest downfall to this campground is the dirt/sand and the $36 wristbands for the water slide/jumping pillow/ tubing.
Sep 02, 2013
Despite assurances, our tipi leaked. And there was a distinct sewage odor at our campsite. We have come to this campground at least once each year for the past 4 years. I doubt that we'll camp there again.

We have been camping at Hayward KOA for 20 years and LOVE it! It is truly a fun place for families. We have spread the word to many families about how great Hayward KOA is. It's a great day when you are at KOA!!! See ya next year!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That's great. Let us know when you return, we would like to meet you. See you in 2014! Tony/Rosie

The many amenities for family is what really made our stay awesome. The convenience of tubing was excellent. Love the camp kitchen. Wasn't told aobut wristband package that included water slide, pillow jump, tubing, etc. Rating not 5 stars because of this.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. The river tubing is a big part of our park with as many as 600 tubers a day! We do have wrist band packages and we'll train our staff in letting everyone know! We're also looking into a zip line for the 2014 season! Hope to see you again.

Less friendly than last year. Large slide closed Mon -Wed Red Pine Breakfast only on weekends.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts. We're conducting customer service classes this coming 2014! Unfortunately we lost some workers near the end of our season and we had to run a limited schedule at the water slide. New, additional staff is already hired for 2014. Check out our web site for new info. Thanks
Aug 31, 2013
Disappointed. Water slide not open during week, no special activities for kids during week, Not the friendly feeling like the staff that use to be there. Our cabin was great except the bunk room door was out of adjustment, and the floor was swept but not mopped. The jumping pillow is too expensive and should be included with the cost of staying especially when there are no other activities.
Aug 30, 2013
Dirty bathrooms, quoted prices were wrong, off by $17 per person for 3 day passes on waterslide/tubing/pillow. Also waterlside was closed! Staff not friendly!
Aug 30, 2013
We were disappointed that we were not told the water slide wouldn't be open at all during our 4 day stay. Campsites are way too close together, waiting for the gravel around the jumpy pillow to dry while the large staff in yellow told the kids they would check on it and didn't until asked at least 4 more times wasn't nice, either. If not for the pool, we would have found another campground.

We loved all of the fun activities for kids- bike rentals, waterslide, bouncy pillow, movie night,minigolf, etc. We stayed in one of the 4 passenger camper cabins and would definitely stay in one again. My only complaint is that there was barely any grass throughout the whole complex. I understand grass is hard to maintain with so many vehicles/tents coming in/out, but some would've been nice.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We attempted grass....all the trees rejected the idea! We are installing new tent areas with graveled pads for the tents. Thanks

Loved our stay , our 6 and 3 year old never ran out of fun things to do. The kids asked why we couldn't live there. We'll be back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. We look forward to seeing you in 2014! There will be additional activities next season.
Aug 28, 2013
The new owner doesn't want people to enjoy themselves. We had thirty people in our group and he wanted one person to talk at a time by the campfire. We were told we were not welcome back after the whole group have coming there for twenty years never had a problem an tell this year. We won't be back next year .

We had a great time during our stay. The staff is extremely friendly. When our to leaket they helped us dry our clothes. The one person Kay who is the activities person really went above and beyond.
Aug 28, 2013
Nice area and great staff. Downside is the waterslide and the advertised daily breakfast are both only open on the weekend.
Aug 28, 2013
We really like this KOA as it is right next to ATV trails. Please fix the AC though

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You're not kidding about the AC! lol. New units have already been purchased! See you in 2014
Aug 28, 2013
It was a great safe Place to relax with the kids. I had fun and the kids said they had a blast. Everything was nice and clean and staff was excellent. I hope to stay every chance I get Thank You

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the comments. We'll pass them on to our team!

Wonderful time. Booked the same cabins and lodge for next year extending our stay to 4 nights. Love the lodge but would like to see a full size refrigerator/freezer like the new lodges have. It's more convenient for a longer stay. The stiff mattress cover was the noisiest I've ever tried to sleep on. Something softer and quieter would be a kudo. Otherwise, looking forward to next year!! Thank you!
Aug 27, 2013
It was wonderful! Not one single thing to complain about!
Aug 27, 2013
Excellent stay as usual! Firewood bundles seem to be getting a little small though and some of the younger staff memebers seem like they don't want to be there. Maybe they need a pep talk, lol.
Aug 27, 2013
During check in, There were 3 staff there, 1 of which was a teenage girl who was in a snit about having to relieve a co-worker from the water slide. Her attitude was extremely unpleasant and unwelcoming to a guest-especially during camper appreciation weekend! Second, make the "no smoking" a priority at the pool. Thirdly, offer plastic recycling!
Aug 27, 2013
love your campground, but disappointed that we did not have a host show us to our campsite. It's always appreciated when we have a host show us ro our site and makes sure we are situated on the site okay.
Aug 27, 2013
While the campground was good, you have a worker there that has the poorest manners when dealing with people. Elise is her name and she should really work on how she presents herself to clients.

our cabin was clean, it smelled nice, cleaned by Jaimie. the bathrooms were very nice, plenty of hot water. A little less dust, but a very nice place. Kathy who checked me in was very friendly. The owner, Tony was very friendly and polite. I would come back, but get a more deluxe cabin. thank you everyone for making my stay a nice experience.
Aug 27, 2013
Hayward is a nice place. Very very busy KOA. Booked at last minute and slept in teepee under the pines as camper cabins were booked. Unique experience.

The cabin was great! My only complaint was the prices were too high on the activities!
Aug 26, 2013
The campgrounds and facilities were always clean and the staff was friendly it was a great place to stay and we will be coming back again and again and again thanks a lot Phil and Angie :)

We had a wonderful time staying at the Hayward KOA!! Thank you for your hospitality and allowing us to make such great memories with our family and friends!!!!

The cabin had not been cleaned. Dirt & various garbage pieces on the floor, the trash can was full including a dirty diaper. Our boys loved the park & riding their bikes around. They had fun in the pool. They loved the waterslide as well. I think for the price people pay to stay, more things (waterslide, pillow, golf) should be included, or at least a one-time fee for the duration of the stay.
Aug 26, 2013
Having stayed at this KOA for years, it's obvious there are new owners. I miss all the friendly retired help that was always there. Mostly young help that weren't very friendly. The restrooms weren't as clean as in the past. The price of wristbands remained the same. Too costly for large families. If you lowered the prices, more wristbands would be purchased.
