Campground Reviews

Sep 04, 2014
Much better this time. Still couldn't enjoy the pool, too cold, needs to be at 80 degrees. Since memorial day up to labor day its too cold. Pricing of campsites is no longer affordable for families in middle class.

Experience was good and it was conveniently close to trails. However, the dog park was a great disappointment, for the fence needs repaired and reinforced with better fencing!! Found numerous holes in the fence-tsk-tsk! Need to "go green" with hand blowers instead of paper towels. Such a waste! Grounds were kept neat and clean. Employees were friendly and helped with many questions.

Stayed in one of the cabins. Great layout with seperate bedroom for bunk beds and queen bed. It was nice having a decent fire pit compared to the campsites and also having a yard behind the cabin for the kids to play. Great playground for kids as well.

Thanks. The new lodges have been very popular this year, in the location they are and we're glad your kids had a good time. Come back soon.

The pool was too cold. Too many other campers walking through our site. We are trying out a new place for Labor Day 2015 in Hayward.

Every year we bring our family dog, stayed in the same cabin for the last ??? years. This year there was a big sign in cabin stating no dogs allowed. Wish the new owners would have communicated this change to us prior to our visit. Also,this year about 1:30am a argument broke out by campers by us, owner came and was screeming at campers, kicking them out, called sheriff, etc. very long night.

They had a good weekend planned. Was very disappointed the pool temperature was so cold. We stay here every year, and this year was the coldest we have ever experienced.

Had a pretty good time. I will come again...but would want a better experience making reservations. I would have loved to have a grassy site, as I always bring children. This last weekend was very wet...and all we had was mud. Next time I will call for a reservation...the web site is not specific enough as to the customers needs, etc.

We love camping at the Hayward KOA! we used to camp there back in the 70s and then due to my husband's work hours we just couldn't fit camping in. Now retired and so happy to be back! We like the family atmosphere!

This stay was Halloween weekend. The haunted house was really really good.. The lady that was in charge of this weekend did a wonderful job getting the decorations up, word out ahead of time for costumes and trick or treating it was a fun weekend all and all..

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had a good time as well. Thanks for coming and return when you can. We have weekly themed activities from Memorial Day thru Labor Day that are enjoyed by our campers. Thanks.

Arrived in the rain. Check-in was flawless and staff were very friendly. Site was clean and level which made setting up a breeze. Activities were non stop with plenty to keep everyone busy no matter the age. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because of the cost. A little spendy per night and the firewood is a scam. It's $5.50 for about 6 pieces of wood and that's if your lucky.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We try to supply whole family fun and we're glad you had a great time. Thanks for your thoughts.
Sep 03, 2014
It was very nice and we had fun. Just to bad it had a bad storm come through to cut the fun a little short

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed yourselves.

We had a great stay at the KOA. It was the first time staying at a KOA and it was great to have so many options for the kids. Need to really work on the wifi though. Didn't work the whole weekend.

Thanks for visiting us. Come back soon. Remember to like us on Facebook for up-to-date info about the campground.

Our stay was a better experience than last year. The workers were more friendly and it seemed there were less young workers riding around in golf carts. Thank you for that. It was great that the bathrooms were kept a lot cleaner and checked more often. The only major complaint was the swimming pool was very cold and hard to enjoy it. Thanks for a better time this year.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for noticing the work we've put in at the park....it's for you and our other guests. We installed a propane pool heater at the water slide this year and are installing another for the swimming pool this coming season. We appreciate your comments and look forward to your return. Thanks.

The cabin was very clean, as was the entire campground. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We have been camping at KOA, Hayward, for over 30 years and this was the best time yet. Thanks!

Our family rented 2 deluxe cabins for an early week getaway and were pleasantly surprised at unmentioned amenities like horseshoes and bean bag toss games right outside our door. The pull out couch was new and very comfortable, too. As always, the campground was spotlessly clean and without loud partiers.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great. Glad you enjoyed yourselves. The new lodges have been very popular!
Aug 29, 2014
Very accommodating. I was met at the counter like I was an old friend! It felt good. We enjoyed our stay very much.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

New guest or returning....We're glad to see you! Thanks for coming to the Hayward KOA.
Aug 28, 2014
Love the location of this KOA. Pool was too cold and wifi does not work well and/or not at all. Would rate higher if that was not the case.
Aug 28, 2014
Stayed in a camper cabin. Loved the convenience with the outdoor feel. Campground was clean and tubing was fun.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Super! Try one of our lodges with a few more critter comforts as well!
Aug 28, 2014
Lovely treed park, hugh pool, nice water slide, river tubing was a ball.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. We're glad you enjoyed our park. Come back soon.

Our first trip to this camp ground and we enjoyed every part. the staff was super friendly the camp spots were clean and big... tons of activities for our 2 year old and he loved it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great. Come back soon and remember to like us on face book for more campground info and activities. Thank you for your business.

Our kids had so much fun! The only negative is that the rules for parking at our site. We were parked as close off the road as we could. 24 hrs after being there we were told we had to park in our site. We are a family of 7 and there wasn't room for us to park on our site. I was mostly annoyed that they were nitpicking 24 hours later. They had driven around many times and never said a thing.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. Just as a thought...we have off campsite parking available near the office, when things get a little tight. Come back soon.

This was our annual end of summer treat and get together with our kids and grandkids. As usual, we had a great time and the four day stay flew by. We booked for 2015 to do it again. As one who believes in recycling, I would love to see bins for glass and plastic. Also, the hayride would be more classic having the trailer pulled by a tractor rather than a truck. Great staff. See you in 2015:).

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're very glad that you and yours all had a great time and we appreciate your returning in 2015! Currently there are no options for recycling glass or plastic in the Hayward area for commercial use, although it's a great idea. Also our tractor stopped running like a deer and is being repaired. Thx
Aug 25, 2014
Great

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. We and our staff work hard to make your stay just that....Great! Come back soon.
Aug 25, 2014

Very satisfied. We will be making this an annual event.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

So many of our guest return many times a year as well as for many years, so we're glad you'll be returning and enjoying the park again. Thanks.

A fantastic group of people on staff!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We believe our staff are super. We'll pass along your comments. Thanks
Aug 25, 2014
Very friendly staff. Fun for children, many activities. Do plan on spending for "extras" - you have to pay for mini-golf, bike rentals, bounce pillow, arcade, firewood.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your comments.
Aug 25, 2014
Only suggestion is warm the pool. It was beyond cold. It was a pool of ice water. We love this place and staff is great

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts. Come back soon.

We arrived on a Wednesday and stayed until Saturday. I wish I would have known going in that we would have been charged for the waterslide, mini golf and jumping pillow(other KOA's don't charge for this). We paid $178.00 for three nights plus we spent another $110 on the amenities. Add that up and this was the most expensive campground we have ever stayed at. We camped in a travel trailer.

Very nice overall, visitors and staff were friendly including folks in the Hayward area. A couple of suggestions, 1st the floor of the Kabin was very dirty should mop more often, 2nd would like more information available about the Hayward area like boat rentals and fishing locations.
