We had a blast besides the storms and we feel the campgrounds are super close and the wood is expensive but it was cool it got delivered to our campsite. Didn't like that we have to pay for the jumping pillow especially when my kid was barely on it. Everything else was pretty expensive too that's why we didn't do anything else but we did enjoy our campsite and the staff. So thank you!

Tent sites were too close together,esp @ $45/nt, which didn't include the waterslide/tubing/jumpy pillow. There were also loud drunk campers nearby until 3a.m. From rdg other reviews, apparently there is a # posted on the door of the store, but I would've had to walk all the way over there, past the drunk campers to get it. The # should be included in ck in materials, or it should be patrolled.

We have security on site. 11 PM quiet hour is enforced. The number is posted at office for any issues. We have an awesome group of campers who frequent our park several times throughout the year. We offer a clean, safe, quiet camping experience which is attested to by the many pages of reviews.

Lots to do, but they have what we consider some awful sites. Full hook up premium between two cabins so tight we could not get in. But they were very accommodating and allowed us to pick any open site.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm glad we could help. The office is always willing to accomidate anywhere we're able.

Very family friendly campground. Loved it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very good. Thanks for coming.

Second time here. Other than the intense rain and our spot was flooded over the fire put depth plus some, we like the campground. They even replaced our wet wood and raked around the pit. Traffic at night does get quieter too. Will be back. Great family campground. And the rain was 6 to 9"" of rain which is rare.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The rain was intense! Glad we could be of assistance with the wood etc. We'll look for your return.

This was our first KOA experience so we weren't sure what to expect. Our family really enjoyed it and our boys (7 & 3) LOVED it! Everything was very clean and well maintained and we felt safe letting the boys run around. Very family friendly - we'll be back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Another awesome comment.... thanks so much for staying!

I liked how the bathrooms were constantly being cleaned. We had a wonderful time!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Evey hour and every 15 minutes during heavy usage. Thanks for the comments. We'll pass your thoughts along to our staff.

So many things to do right at the camp site. 12 children and never heard I'm board

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

AWESOME! With 2 playgrounds, mini golf, volley ball, 300' waterslide, tubing/canoeing, DJ dances, outdoor movies, basket ball, horseshoe pits, tether ball, Free Friday nite smores, nightly wagon rides, games, acitivities, crafts, contest, jumping pillow, etc. I'm not surprised, but glad to hear!

There were things advertised that were not available (wifi) or at a cost, unlike other KOAs we've visited. Its ridiculous that it costs to jump on the pillow and use the slide! When I bought the activity bracelet for my kid I accidentally put it on too tight. I sent her to the office to ask for a new bracelet, she was told she'd have to buy another one!
Jul 12, 2016
The campground was nice and clean and there were a lot of amenities for kids . But, it was very noisy with the ATVs coming in each night around midnight . I would suggest having an area of the campground designated for people with ATVs.
Jul 12, 2016
We were placed in a "Deluxe" Tent spot and the spot barely fit our 5 person tent, we were unable to use our Fire pit because it was located between 3 trees and no chairs would fit around it where it was located due to the fact that we were really only inches aware from the Road. We were crammed in there like a bunch of Sardines too. Many of your Campers were snotty & the registration piece SUCKED

We came in late after the Spooner Rodeo. Staff were pleasant. Bathrooms were not the cleanest.

Excellent place for kids!

Clean, safe, secured, whole family fun!

It was a very nice well run campground. Felt like campsites were on top of each other. For the overnight price I felt that some of activities should come with the price.
Jul 11, 2016
Beautiful and clean. Friendly staff and lots of fun things to do.
Jul 11, 2016
What a great place to camp with kids. Should put a little more gravel on the camper pads, was soft and muddy. Campers do not put thier personal vehicles far enough off the roadways, so it is difficult to navigate through the trees and vehicles. Love the big trees though. Wifi was non.existant, difficult to send a quick message back home. These days, communication by internet is very important
Jul 11, 2016
I think the Movie night should be on Friday and the dance party on Saturday to spread out the fun. Would it be possible to include the jumpy pillow as part of the stay free so we don't have to pay daily? Overall, my family loves this campground, the amenities and activities. It is a favorite of ours.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Most of our guest arrive on Friday PM so they would miss the dance. We have found that including the jump pillow into the base price can't fit into the budget. We are continually looking for ways to lower our cost though. FYI... Next week we are installing a brand new pillow!
Jul 11, 2016
Why is everything a la carte? Pay $50 a night then charge for waterslide, jumping pillow, mini golf? Ridiculous - oh yeah no wifi and the pool wasn't heated.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our park is in the top 3 % of all 500 KOA's in the nation and ranks at a 28.5 out of 30 for GoodSam's. Sorry your experience wasn't to par but as always, if there are ever any issues while visiting, please let the office know and we'll do all were able to improve your experience.
Jul 11, 2016
Lots of fun things to do

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Many fun things for whole family fun. Come back soon.
Jul 11, 2016
Everything was great as usual.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Exceeding the standards.... everytime, is our goal!
Jul 11, 2016
We enjoyed our stay. Disappointed that the waterslide, mini golf, and jumping box were additional expense. This should ALL be included in the stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Many of our guest don't use any or all of the adminities so we've found a one price fits all doesn't work well. We continually are looking for ways to lower our cost and now include up to 4 guest per site in the base price unlike most camp grounds who base the prices on only 2. Thanks
Jul 11, 2016
We really enjoyed our cabin and the KOA experience at Hayward. The pool was nice and warm and we had a good time in it. Golf was fun and the jumping pillow was great. Waterslide was fun for our family. We will be going again soon, for sure, and are looking forward to another stay there.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Awesome.... can't wait to have you back! So many return guest help make the park that much fun. Your why we're here and we're thrilled you had a great time at the Hayward KOA.
Jul 11, 2016
The staff was very friendly and helpful, on checkout the dump station line was backed up they opened up full,hookup sites to help keep the line moving. They had lots of fun kid activities for all range of ages. A great kids craft. And a great playground with lots of fun things the kids can play on along with a nice pool, jumping pillow and mini golf. My kids are already asking to go back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Awesome. Glad you liked it!
Jul 11, 2016
We knew it would be great when the owner came out and greeted us upon our arrival. This campground had so many fun things to do for both kids and adults. We loved that we could rent movies for free in the main office. It was so family friendly, our kids were always off playing with other kids and we knew they were safe. It was very clean, thank you so much for a great stay!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Clean, safe, fun. We were glad to meet you and appreciate your staying at our park. We're always thrilled to hear when our guest have a great time and want you to know your why we do what we do. Having guest and their friends/family create great, lasting memories makes all our labor very worth while
Jul 11, 2016
If you are looking for a place to stay with kids I would suggest staying at Hayward KOA. There is a lot for kids to do here. We enjoyed all the activities and playgrounds. The camp sites are very small and its very busy here so I personally wouldnt stay here if I didnt have kids just because I would rather have more nature and less people but for families who dont mind lots of people it is fun.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Next time try and get a site in the 400's..... Also the shoulder months of the season are quieter.... remember the autumn colors will be coming in September and with all these trees of every type.... this area is beautiful!
Jul 10, 2016
I absolutely love this campground! So much for the kids to do and everyone is always friendly.

Just passing through but found. The facilities clean and the campground quite enjoyable. Would stay again if going that way

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Check out our web site for the different themes throughout the season. SO many guest drive long distance just to visit our park and we would love to see you all again if you can find the time. Enjoy the rest of your summer and thanks for stopping in.

We have been coming for years, with our whole family. See you next 4th of July.

Our second stay over the Independence Day holiday. Never disappointed in this campground! Great location, wonderful staff.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great to have you back. Many of our guest return several times throughout the season and always have a great time at the Hayward KOA. We strive to exceed the stanards and are happy you and your group enjoy visiting our park. Come back soon.
Jul 07, 2016
We enjoyed our stay. The facilities were very well maintained and cleanliness was a high priority. The only negative is all the extra fees for the activities, was irritating. No one told us when we arrived that there was a package deal for activities,so after 3 days we find out and by then we had already spent way too much on extra activities to invest any more.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Wow.... We'll pass along your comments to the front desk. Our $36.00 wrist bands are the way to go if your going to be spending a few days here. Please see the front desk for any questions.
Jul 07, 2016
Great stay except 2 sites that were by our site that didn't follow quiet time and were partying. Until 1 am

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our quiet hour is 11 PM and is strictly enforced by our on-site security but sometimes some folks take a little more convencing to respect others. If there is ever an issue in the park we have a 24/7 telephone number posted at the office.
Jul 07, 2016
Great time!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. Hurry back and remember to check out our web site for all weekly themed activities.... One of our favorites is coming up fast..... Pirate weekend! ARRRRRGH

The campground was immaculate! Staff was very friendly. We had two children ages 8 and 5 and 3 adults. We never got bored. Definitely will come back to stay again!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Hopefully yet this season as there are so many activities planned for the themed weekends. Halloween is very popular!

It was nice but the campsites are way too close. Too hard to park and get out. Not enough room to park your vehicle w/o the campfire being in the way. Would be nice to have grass instead of all the dirt.
Jul 06, 2016
Nice facility. Lots of activities for kids. Need music for pool area
Jul 06, 2016
Love it its my favorite campground
Jul 06, 2016
Pull thru was too tight for 40 ft rig.Went in 180 degrees. Camp map shows angled campsites but not true.Fireworks not allowed? How about all the ones going off around our site? BS
