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.

We try to supply whole family fun and we're glad you had a great time. Thanks for your thoughts.

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

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.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

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.

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.
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

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

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

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 24, 2014
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.

It was a nice stay. Heat felt good in cabin. Had more fun on the last visit but we stayed longer that time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for returning and visiting with us again. Come back soon.

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.
Aug 22, 2014
It was ok. Very Noisy with the road & sites very tight. They did include use of the pool and playground with the high price to stay but everything else had an additional cost.
Aug 22, 2014
Even tho it rained all 3 days we made the best of it and had a Good time..The staff was super. I really like the Kamping Lodges.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great. Come back and visit us again. Don't forget to check out our website for up-to-date campground information.
Aug 22, 2014
This was our first time staying in one of the cabins in the back of the campground. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay especially since it rained a bit of our stay! The cabin was clean as well as the campsite. We recommend the cabins!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

So many of our guests really enjoy the cabins and lodges. We're glad you had a good time. See our website for weekly themed activities for whole family fun and come back soon.
Aug 22, 2014
Nice campsites

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. For all the home comforts, while still camping, check out one of our new lodges.
Aug 20, 2014
We rented a deluxe kamping cabin and was very grossed out when I grabbed a plate to put my daughters sandwhich on and found it covered in dried up food. Apparently dishes are not checked when kabins are cleaned!!
Aug 20, 2014
I didn't get the cabin I paid for even though I called 3 times to make sure and I got charged the same amount for a cabin that has less just because it can sleep 8. I don't think it is right to pay that high of a price when you don't get an oven, T.V., Living room, and two loft areas. I felt very ripped off and I will never stay here again. The campground itself was nice though.
Aug 20, 2014
This was my 2nd time visiting the KOA in Hayward and we had a good time. There were a lot of additions to the campground since the first time we stayed & while we enjoyed the extra activities we were disappointed that everything besides the pool & playground cost extra money. I have 4 children so as you can imagine it did get expensive. That would be my only complaint. Camping kitchen a huge plus!
Aug 20, 2014
Friendly staff, site and facilities were clean. Only real complaint is sites are way too tight. Also we had many people walk right through our campsite while we were sitting around the campfire.... not really the campgrounds fault but made the night less enjoyable. The glow show was great and kids really liked it.
Aug 20, 2014
would be fine for city people but not us country ppl. way too expensive... tubing, bike rentals,jumping thing, water slide extra...shud be included free, price of wood...crazy! staff was exceptionally nice... only plus

The minute I pulled into Hayward Koa, I knew it was going to be a mess. The cabin I stayed in the prev. yr & reserved a year in advance ad been moved..and in its place was a log. When I checked in the comp froze up. I was told to come back later. When checking out They had me down to leave the next day and said theyd refund me. Ive left 3 messages for the owners & havent got a call!!!!
Aug 19, 2014
The only complaint is the wifi was down all weekend. (I have to check work emails)
Aug 19, 2014
Sites were very narrow/small and close to one another. It was also disappointing that even though we stayed 5 nights we had to pay more to buy a wristband for the waterslide and jumping pillow for the kids - I would think those items would be included with a minimum night stay of maybe 2 nights.
Aug 19, 2014
Aug 19, 2014
good rain,next at night was loud music after 10pm small table to eat at in cabin out of rain ok
Aug 19, 2014
It was never explained to us at check-in (or on website) that all the amenities came with an additional cost. My two children literally got yelled at for not having an armband which we knew nothing about. Also, highway traffic is EXTREMELY loud. We were fortunate to have been able to move to the back of the campground where it is MUCH quieter.
Aug 19, 2014
Great park.... The grandkids never ran out of something to do!!! We will be back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great...We'll look for your return. We're glad you had a good time.

Loved our stay! Second year in a row. Next year I would stay in the sites behind the office, the highway noise was way too loud on the sites to the side of it. I wished the bathrooms were cleaned more often than once a day, they got a little gross. I had a cold shower on Sunday morning, I didn't like that, but no one else did, must have been my shower. I LOVE the campgrounds. Very nice, very clean

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. Sorry about the shower...if you ever experience a problem while here at the park, please let the office know and we'll get right on it. We'll check the showers. Glad you enjoyed your stay.
