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.

We enjoyed ourselves!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That's what matters. Thanks for spending time at our park.

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.....

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!

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:

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.

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!

Pool was closed for almost an entire day and the bathrooms were pretty dirty. Otherwise, a lot of fun,

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!

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
Aug 11, 2015
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.
Aug 11, 2015
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.
Aug 11, 2015
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.
Aug 11, 2015
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.
Aug 11, 2015
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.
Aug 11, 2015
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.
