Campground Reviews

Aug 18, 2015
Camp sites were very clean. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. My 3 children, ages 12, 9 and 7, had a fabulously fun time!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Fabulous! That's why we do what we do. You and you family experiencing a fun filled, safe camping experience in what Midwest Living described as one of only 5 super camps in the mid-west. Whole family fun. Come back soon.

The best part of our stay was the friendly, helpful staff! Very nice people. It was nice to have the honey wagon option. We felt that the campsites were way too close together. We also felt that the activities were a bit overpriced. There were no doggie poop bags in the dog run for 2 days. Most campgrounds we've been to have doggie bags placed in several locations throughout the campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have three doggie spots which are stocked regularly. if there is ever any issues in the park.... we're here 24/7. Please let the office know. We have a great staff and we'll pass along your thoughts.

I would think the deluxe cabins would have a little stove.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Check out our deluxe cabins KL3 or KL4 which have stoves as well.... it's all in the descriptions listed on the web site or call the office and we'll be glad to send you in the best directions for your camping needs. Thanks.

We enjoyed our stay very much at the campground the bathrooms were extremely clean staff was friendly there is always something to do we loved the entertainment and expecially the glow show was awesome this was our first time to stay and I'm sure we will be back again

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The glow show is my top favorite and the folks who put on the show are great! We appreciate your coming and spending time at our park. Come again when you can and enjoy another fun, themed weekend!
Aug 18, 2015
The stay was good. There was a pretty long wait for the Tubing Both before we left and waiting along side the road after. WE did loose power for some of the stay. It didn't seem to affect anything that we were doing and I feel they handled the problem well. We did have to use some other means to keep food and stuff cold but al was well in the end. we will be back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

A transformer of Excels blew but they we're quick at the repairs thankfully! We appreciate your spending time with us and will be looking for your return. Thanks for your thoughts.

tent site. kitchen facility was the first time i've seen that! and very helpful. tent site well treed - great. pool was great. this is probably the most deluxe KOA i''ve ever stayed at. great service. bathrooms were good. maybe a bit undersized. saturday eve event was great. Price was a little higher than typical, but then you get a lot for the fee.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Now that's the Hayward KOA. Thanks for your business and thanks for noticing. We appreciate your comments and hope you can come back soon.
Aug 18, 2015
We gad a great time. The staff was polite and professional. My only dislike was with the cost vs the size of wood bundles and the actual size of the pieces.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your comments. You would thinks we would have the options of many areas to obtain bundled wood in the North woods of Wisconsin but that's not the case and the fellow we were getting the wood from retired. I'll take a look at the bundles and see what we can do. Thank for the information.
Aug 18, 2015
Waterslide staff were rude but otherwise had a great time!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for coming to the park. We'll check on the slide but we're glad everything else was great. If your in the area.... Labor Day weekend will be a blast! Bring your costumes and site decorations!
Aug 18, 2015
Very enjoyable. We stayed to go to a couple activities in Hayward and the campground worked out great.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Only three miles from all that Hayward has to offer and a fun camping experience to boot! Thanks for making the Hayward KOA your spot to stay. Come back soon.
Aug 18, 2015
Good time! Friendly Staff!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Once again! Thanks for your continued business and we look for your return. We appreciate when our guest have a great time and work hard to ensure the best available in camping. Check out our new web-site and come visit again..... Labor Day will be a blast!
Aug 18, 2015
We booked our site over the phone but when we arrived were told we got bumped, into a very small site which was disappointing..something about not getting locked into the site number when we booked??? We were then able to move to one of the working sites which turned out to be a very nice site which we were happy with. We want to come back however most sites seem too tight. Will be back next year!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

As you become more accustomed to the park and like a particular area or site... you have first dibs at the next years reservations. This way your always ensured a site which you'll be home away from home on and it helps make your stay great. Glad we could help move you this visit. Thanks for coming.
Aug 18, 2015
My family had an awesome time this weekend. So many fun things to do. The Glow Show was amazing. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The Tipi we stayed in was very cool. Definately will be coming back!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your comments. We work hard to make your stay great and we're glad you had a blast....
Aug 18, 2015
We LOVED the amenities of the Kampground, the pool, golf and the activities that were offered i.e. free smore's; Glow Show etc. The staff were EXCELLENT they were friendly, helpful and always smiling. We were impressed. My husband and I both work with employees and I loved the attitudes there. We did lose power for a few hours and of course worried for our pet and food etc. but they fixed it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Another one! Thanks so much.... Excel blew a transformer and we were partially affected but they we're quick at their work and all was well. Thanks for spending part of your time with us!
Aug 18, 2015
The traffic noise was lound from hyw 63.also the dust from campground roads was too much

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You need the south end of the park.... larger sites, grass and quieter. If we can ever be of help during your stay....please see the office and we'll assist every way we're able!
Aug 18, 2015
Was a great stay, except for all the dust from vehicles near our site, felt like we were eating and breathing dust. Had a lot of fun though!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

To say Saturday was a hot dry day is an understatement! We finally have rain and we need it. We're glad you had a fun time.
Aug 18, 2015
Fun, very busy campground, interesting shows

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very good. Each weekend is a different theme.... come join the fun!

Mattresses in camping cabins were extremely uncomfortable,too thin and no support,could feel the wood slats underneath. Hotel type beds would be much nicer. Overall it's much too crowded,too many people,not relaxing at all but kids enjoyed all the activities

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Most of the cabins have new 5 inch mattresses. If your in the area after Labor Day weekend, it's a great time to visit and see the Autumn colors at the same time.... what-a-package.
Aug 17, 2015
There were a lot of fun things to keep my three busy boys entertained, we all had a great time!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very good.... That's our gaol and we're glad you had fun. Come back soon.
Aug 17, 2015
Clean accomodations, good customer service, lots of options for kids, but pool was FREEZING...

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We maintain the pool at 81 degrees but did have a maintenance issue which dropped the temps for a day. We're back to our normal selves again... Come join the fun!
Aug 17, 2015
We were passing through for a few days and it was a great place to stay.we were centrally located to visit Duluth and other area attractions.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great.... so many drive past us not realizing what we actually have to offer. We're glad your stopped and had fun with us this year. Come back if your ever in the area again. Thanks
Aug 16, 2015
Staff was very crabby/snotty this year. Also, was very disappointed when the pool was closed. Just wish they wouldve told us before we checked in, when you spend 130.00 a night to use the pool we would've rescheduled.
Aug 16, 2015
It was great! The price of firewood is rediculous for what you get, we burned thriugh $11 in 1 hour.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts. Labor Day weekend is coming fast.... trick/treat, haunted house, spooky time for the smaller crowd and fun, fun for all. Hope you can join in the activities.
Aug 16, 2015
We enjoyed ourselves!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That's what matters. Thanks for spending time at our park.
Aug 16, 2015
A few recommendations for this KOA would be to: 1. Have a package discount for the jumping pillow/mini golf/water slide. 2. When guests check-in, hand them an itinerary of that weekends events. First time guest do not know where they are hung up around the park and there were none available at the desk. 3. Try to do pool maintenance in the early am or late pm. Don't close it for a whole day.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the thoughts.... P.S. We had a break down at the pool and that dictated when we had to complete the maintenance.....
Aug 16, 2015
I feel like since the stay itself is so pricey, the features should come along with it for at least one day. I came thinking I would have plenty to do each day, but ended up being bored because of the prices. Would not recommend for teenagers. Also, quiet hours should be more enforced. I was woken up multiple times by my tent neighbors.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have mini golf, 3 horseshoe pits, 4 sets of bean bag toss, 2 tether ball. 2 play grounds, 320 ft waterslide, jumping pillow. 80,000 gal swimming pool, tubing/canoeing, DJ dances, movies/ activities/games, wagon rides, themed weekends. Fun for the whole family and all ages at the Hayward KOA!
Aug 16, 2015
We've loved the KOA. This time, however, the water slide was closed most of the day on Friday. It understandably had to close when there was the possibility of a thunderstorm, but when we went back two more times later in the day it remained closed. The all day wristbands were not utilized.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

??? If there is ever any problems in the park, please see the office. We're here to help make your time in the Hayward area great and we want you to enjoy yourselves while at our park. FYI... By law we have to remain closed for 30 minutes after we hear the last thunder. Thanks for the info.
Aug 15, 2015
Great all around but the pool was freezing cold for the kids for two days due to they drained it and had to heat it back up.
Aug 15, 2015
We had a couple little hiccups this year during our stay.. However we were very pleased with the way the staff handled those hiccups..

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your business. It was a wild weekend at the Hayward KOA!

Great fun for kids. Wish the RV sites were bigger.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are looking into the possibility to create site that will accommodate larger rigs as well as more comfort room. Come back and bring the kiddos.
Aug 13, 2015
The campground is nice. The employees and/or owners were very rude and unresponsive to our needs. Everyone in our group was either ignored or treated badly when we had a question or needed something.
Aug 13, 2015
After camping at Hayward KOA for over 20 years, with great experiences and memories, this year turned sour for us. From check-in until we left, many family members complained of rude employees. The employee at the water slide was VERY rude. Nobody could do anything right in her eyes. Had a few rude experiences in the office. Makes us wonder if we want to come back. Customer Service is lacking!

Beautiful setting in the red pines. My girls loved the activities. Very clean and great friendly staff.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great. My favorite sight here at the park is seeing the moon rise through the pines.... and the Northern Lights.... cool
Aug 12, 2015
This is the perfect place for a family with children with varying ages!!!! There was something for everyone. The weekend theme was chocolate. They had a chocolate slip 'n slide, chocolate eating contest, s'mores, etc. On top of that, there were games, playground, movie in the park, pool, bike rental, water slide, mini golf, etc. HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!! We will be back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We will be trilled to see you return.... Labor Day is Halloween weekend.... Fun for everyone!
Aug 12, 2015
Absolutely wonderful! Our site was big and beautiful and we wish we could have stayed longer. Very clean and lots of activities. By far one of the best KOA's ever and we have stayed at many across the country. Friendly staff and well stocked store. We can't wait to go back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You made my day and we're glad we helped make yours. We know you have a choice of where to camp and we appreciate your coming and spending part of your time with us. Come back soon. Also remember to like us on face book for up-to-date info on the happenings at the Hayward KOA!
