Campground Reviews

Aug 11, 2015
We enjoyed coming and everything was very clean, but we stayed in a cabin and it was very musty smelling . We were being quiet around our fire and were told we were being too loud. That was frustrating. Maybe you should separate people who would like to go to bed at 8:00 p.m. with others who are away on vacation and would like to stay up later.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

And we would know this how???? The quiet hour is 11:00 PM and we wish ALL of our guest to enjoy themselves, so we ask ALL to please use their inside voice when outside after 11:00 PM. This is a family park and your visiting neighbors will appreciate it. I notified house keeping on the cabin. Thanks

Wonderful activities for the kids and a beautiful setting. Recommend spots far from the main road; we had lots of traffic noise at 405-408. Would love to see the restrooms updated a bit (and expanded facilities), but cleanliness is top notch. Great family campground!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the comments. Next year the south restrooms/shower house is on the list! Thanks for sharing.... come back soon.

Had a great time at the KOA. very fun and clean. Cabins are wonderful, staff friendly and helpful. Pool is a bit too cold.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great. Thanks for coming.

Lots of activities for kids. I was there alone, so it got a little noisy at night. But, it was more important for the kids to have their fun. Very well run place.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very good. Thanks for coming and for understanding. The kiddos have a lot of fun. Free Saturday night movies, DJ dance, games, crafts, activities, tubing and canoeing/waterslide/jumping pillow/mini golf/swimming pool/wagon rides..... fun but noisy. The 11:00 PM quiet hour helps.

We had three Grandchildren with us and they were never bored. Excellent campground. Thank you

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for coming. Hope to see you again.

Pool is COLD

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We maintain the pool at 81 degrees.... was cooler than that due to the required maintenance everyone knew about.....
Aug 11, 2015
This is a great campground. You never get bored with all of the activities available to all members of the family.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Whole family fun..... no matter what the age. We're glad you enjoyed yourselves.

Kids had fun doing the chocolate slip and slide for chocolate week.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sweet..... Halloween is coming Labor Day weekend... Haunted house, activities, trick/treating/site decorating contest. Costume contest.... fun, fun.
Aug 10, 2015
It was great. It has grown a lot since I was little. It was great, very busy but great. Only thing I'd change is more bathrooms.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you returned....welcome back.
Aug 10, 2015
Outstanding! Amazing!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We attempt to exceed your expectations when visiting our park and we're glad that was accomplished! Thanks for visiting.
Aug 10, 2015
Great family Kampground! Staff are always friendly, facilities are kept clean and there are tons of things for the kids to do.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Labor Day weekend is coming..... trick or treating....haunted house.... games/activities. Fun, fun.
Aug 10, 2015
Had a great time. The only problem we had was Friday evening when our whole group was sitting around the firepit, 2 KOA employees driving by in a golf cart stopped to see how everything was. We feel he was trying to be funny, but told us he had to shut this area down, we asked why and he said he was just kidding. We felt that he was making himself known and to let us know he would be watching us

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That's different. I will ask about it. We definitely have a security staff made of individuals throughout the park to ensure not only fun.... but safety. Glad your group enjoyed your stay.... come visit us again. Thanks
Aug 10, 2015
Place was clean and very accommodating. Pool was very nice. Would be better to have a second pool for kids only. :) Very into kids activities! Quiet, except highway noise. I would go again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We would love it if you could return. Many of our guest repeat throughout the season and continue coming for generations.... great family memories. Thanks for allowing us to be a part of them.
Aug 10, 2015
Had a great time and plan on coming back next summer! Our kids and grandkids loved it as much as Nana and Papa did.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Fun for all ages! See you next time.
Aug 10, 2015
Great campground. Some traffic noise as it is on the highway but very fun family get-a-way

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for coming. Glow week end is next....
Aug 09, 2015
Very fun! Incredibly busy on the weekend (we didn't love that) but had an excellent visit! I would recommend adding a hot tub for when it's cold after sliding and swimming! Smile, fun fun time!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you all had the fun, fun time. Chocolate weekend is always very popular..... it's one of our favorites.
Aug 09, 2015
So much fun! So much to offer, our grandsons loved the pool, mini golf, & jumping pillow! Wish we could have stayed longer :-)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you all had fun. Next weekend is "glow Weekend". If you've not ever seen the show, it's would be a great time to visit.
Aug 09, 2015
The staff and the grounds are exceptional! We love that we can 4 wheel right onto the trails from this KOA, the complaints I have is the location of KL6 Cabin in relation to the other sites fire ring and social gathering site. It is DIRECTLY in front of the bedroom. Lastly, please don't charge for the bouncy pillow. Seriously,I think your facility makes enough off us. Thank you.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're appreciate your business. The bouncy pillow has the highest expense in the park in relation to our other amenities and dictates our charges, but thanks for your thoughts. We do work each year to see where we can lower cost.
Aug 09, 2015
Very nice wish we could have been further from road

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Check with the office if there is ever any issues. We'll do all we're able to accommodate.
Aug 09, 2015
Overall excellent stay. Only thing is they should control kids/teens after 11 pm. Pretty loud. But definitely love camping here!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Some folks, sometimes, need a little reminder that the 11:00 PM quiet hour actually means....please be quiet after 11:00 PM. Overall this has been a great season and we're thrilled most of your experience was excellent. Thanks for coming.

Teepee smelled awful! We were rained out and left in the middle of the night. ATM didn't work, but held $205.00 of mine hostage until the next day. Customer service felt rushed and intense. Fee for just about everything in the park. Small spaces felt like we were right on top of our neighbors.
Aug 07, 2015
I think $50.00 a night is a lot of money to hear traffic all day and night
Aug 07, 2015
For a person just wanting an overnight stay without the frills such as pooled and tubing this campground is very pricey. In fact of all the campgrounds we stayed in during our 10000 mile trip to Alaska, this was the most expensive. Also, the showers were very dirty despite supposedly just being cleaned, the soap dishes had not been cleaned anytime recently, there was also crud on the floor! Noisy!
Aug 07, 2015
Great as usual. We've been staying here (family yearly vacation) since the early 70's and are very pleased with the facilities and customer service. The only negative is that the bundles of firewood could be cheaper and more dried out for better burning.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We'll look into the firewood situation. Thanks for your continued trust and business.
Aug 07, 2015
Very clean! Fun for kids!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our goal....whole family fun in a clean, safe environment. Thanks for your business and allowing us to be a part of your summer.
Aug 07, 2015
I was by some awesome family's this time. They go the weekend we do. Best family reunion ever. There not loud at all . there some guy on his golf cart. That come up to us when we where there said we where to loud.so wrong. It's called making memories with your family. That's what camping is about. I'm I wrong.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Many times, once the park is quiet, it is very easy for the voices to carry throughout the area and we wish to let folks know this is the situation. Most times the noise is not from abuse, it's the voices carrying in the night. We ask all to please use indoor voices outside. Thanks.
Aug 07, 2015
Very Nice Campground.Bathrooms & showers clean.. Kids had a great time. local town very close.We camped in our 32 ft motor home on a premium site.. We will be back soon

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The premium patio sites are very popular. Come back soon.
Aug 07, 2015
Another great stay!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for coming. We work hard to make your stay great.
Aug 06, 2015
Overall it was a well maintained campground. The problems are: the campsites are too small. we felt like we were packed in like sardines. There were charges for things that should have been included in the prices paid for camping. If you pay that much for a campsite you expect to be allowed to use the facilties without being charged extra. Quiet time not enforced. Pool being open to noncampers.

Excellent! The KOA staff is very well organized! Lots of activities for the kids, and everyone had a warm personality. Thank you!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We appreciate your comments.
Aug 06, 2015
Very clean campground and kind staff but also very close sites. The biggest negative was no water pressure at the sites. The bathrooms were clean but the showers could have had some attention.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Come back soon..... we don't ever have any water pressure problems.... that particular day we had a break down at the pool which required water be drained and we had to refill which caused the lower pressure for a while. Thanks for the thoughts.
Aug 05, 2015
I enjoyed having all the extra activities for the grandkids. I did not like the fact that the lights in the bathroom (blue building) went off without notice when someone was in there. Would be nice to have more showers available too. A shelf in the blue bldg bathroom would be nice to so that personal belongings could be set down to wash hands instead of placing them on top of the trash can.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Each year we rack our brains trying to come up with ideas that will assist our guest and here is one that is simple and we appreciate your thoughts..... shelving is on it's way. FYI....For more showers, we do have an additional 2 shower houses. Thanks
Aug 05, 2015
Traffic noise, bit got used to it! More for my grandkids could have been included with price, it cost my son a lot extra for 3 days.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We appreciate you staying with us. We work each year attempting to lower the cost for our guest where able.... this year we included up to 4 guest per site vs 2 as most camp grounds charge. We also lowered the mini golf cost last year as well. We'll continue to do so as budget allows.

We have made staying at the Hayward KOA a family tradition every summer!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your continued trust. We appreciate your business.
Aug 04, 2015
Everyone at Hayward was wonderful. Our truck broke down, so we had to stay past our reservation, but they found a vacant spot and took care of us!! Thanks

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That what we do.....glad we could help and we wish you well on the truck.
Aug 04, 2015
Our camp site was right next to a walk way so it was unpleasant for us with people constantly walking back and forth to the bathroom/shower all the time. Also the prices for the water slid and the tubing where a little steep for what you get. Staff was great. Not sure I would go back though.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you enjoyed your stay. The waterslide is available for only $4.75 for 5 rides and the tubing, which we supply the shuttle for is only $10.00 per tube for about a 2 hour trip down the relaxing Namekagon river. These cost are comparable to other local attraction cost.
Aug 04, 2015
One of the best KOA's. Friendly staff, large sites, and lots of activities.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. Come back when you can...
Aug 04, 2015
We have the best time at wayward KOA! Showers are wonderful and so much for the kids to do. We will be back for sure. Thanks for everything!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We know you have a choice in where you camp and we appreciate your staying with us. Come back soon.
Aug 04, 2015
Super busy. We've stayed in the past, but always during the week. Couldn't believe how busy the weekends are! Bathrooms definitely took a hit - yuck! We'll be back, but will be avoiding the weekends.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The week days are great and after Labor Day weekend.... quieter and pretty fall colors!
Aug 04, 2015
great for the grandkids, and also the grandparents! Lots of things for them to do.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Families all having fun in one way or another...... Thanks for staying with us.
Aug 04, 2015
Great family camping. Maneuvering larger RVs can be a problem.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're working on seeing what is available for larger rig sites..... trees, trees, trees.....
Aug 04, 2015
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Floated the river, swam in the pool and played mini golf. Very pet friendly. New area is much less crowded and more enjoyable!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks what we like. Glad you enjoyed yourselves. Remember to like us on facebook for up-to-date information.
Aug 04, 2015
My family had a great time spending the weekend here! We will definitely be camping here again!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We know you probably passed many camp grounds on your way to us and we appreciate the chance to supply you and yours a whole family fun, clean, safe place to all have a ball. Come visit again.
Aug 04, 2015
Absolutely wonderful. Lots of activities for the grandkids. Great staff. Would go back in a heartbeat!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Ya-hoo.... Thanks and come on back when you have the chance. The Autumn colors are awesome!
Aug 03, 2015
We have come to the Hayward KOA for nearly 20 years every August for one weekend. The kids want to come back every year. One recommendation though is to expand the store footprint as you have continued to add camping spaces. The one door entrance is always congested and there is not enough staff to handle the lines of customers.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The office is challenging to say the least. We are thinking about moving some of the business to another location in the park but as usual everything takes time and work./ Thanks for the thoughts.
Aug 03, 2015
Extremely clean bathrooms/showers at all times. Great, friendly people and great campsite.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our house keepers are KOA great. We'll pass along your comments.
Aug 03, 2015
My only complaint about our stay was that our campsite was WAAAY too small in comparison to the other sites around us. (site 139) I felt we shouldn't have had to pay the same amount as the other sites because it was considerably smaller.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You were near two of our deluxe tent sites which are larger and offer an area for the tent to be set up as well as electricity and in some cases water for only about $6.00 more per night. If there is ever a problem in the park or with a site, please see the office and we'll do all we're able to help
Aug 03, 2015
Our grand kids loved all of the activities and we knew it was a safe place for them to exercise their independence.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great! Come on back when you have a chance and we'll supply the fun!
