It was fun. Everyone was super friendly; from the staff to other campers. I was disappointed with the map versus what the kampground actually was. We chose a site that from the map appeared distant from the cabins and surround by trees. This was not the case. I had never stayed at a KOA.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts. The map is intended to give fair directions to our guest while driving or staying in the park but is difficult to make to scale a 28 arce park on an 11 inch page. If there is ever an issue please see the office and we'll do all we're able to assit with the question. Thanks

We thought everything was wonderful except for the fact that there was no crafts or shows for the kids during the week! things shouldn't just be on the weekends when people pay the same amount the same thongs should be all week for kids. disappointed in that part.

Very nice park if you are traveling with kids. Our section was heavily wooded. Showers and bathroom were old but clean and very serviceable. Spaces are dirt and a bit small for today's larger RV's. Overall a very nice park.

Fun, friendly staff, love the jumping pillow. We'll be back! Thank you!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The air pillow is popular! Come back soon.
Aug 30, 2016
kids love the water slide.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Fun, fun on the hot Wisconsin days. Glad they had a good time.

Nice clean facility. Feel like they nickel and dime you on everything jump pillow, water slide, tubing, bikes, and fire wood. $5.50 for five little pieces of firewood. Really!!
Aug 29, 2016
We were surprised at how close all the campers are to one another - too close for us. We were also disappointed that not more activities were included in the price, which is fairly high for a campground stay. The jumping pillow, waterslide, and mini golf are all extra. On the upside, the bathrooms were very clean, the staff was friendly, and the playground was very nice.
Aug 29, 2016
All but two of your staff were extremely rude to our group. The staff talked down and treated us as if we were inferior. We witnessed staff being passive aggressive to other guests children, when asking the children not to ride their bikes. All in all our KOA experience was neither fun or relaxing. We will not be staying at this KOA ever again and will deter any of our friends from staying.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

From reading the over 1000 other guest reviews of our park, I thinks you must have stayed somewhere else. None of what your stated occurs here which is attested to by all of the other reviews. If you were here, we're so sorry you didn't have a good time. Making great memories is what we're all about
Aug 29, 2016
Had the best time as always! Can't wait to go back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sweet. Hurry back. The Fall is always a nice quiet time and beautiful in the Northwoods.
Aug 29, 2016
The rain kind of made it not as enjoyable of a weekend but the KOA kept the bathrooms clean and the employees were very nice and friendly. The breakfasts were convenient and tasted good. Two things I think would make it even better is flavored creamer for coffee in the morning and the bouncing pillow, water slide and mini golf be part of the benefits of camping there.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts. We listen and apply all we're able. We have found that a "one price" dosen't work well as many of our guest don't ever use the waterslide, pillow etc.... We'll look into the flavored creamer... Thanks again.
Aug 29, 2016
We had a very good time. Alot of stuff for kids to do. Very family friendly and nice staff.

It was rainy the whole time and the teepee got wet. The staff were friendly and welcoming.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Rain, rain, rain.... there's been no shortage this year but still all was fun. We're glad you found our staff friendly and helpul. Thanks.
Aug 28, 2016
we liked that the bathrooms and shower rooms were really clean. We felt well cared for.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for noticing. We care about our guest, your comfort and fun and glad you found both.
Aug 28, 2016
The staff was incredible, they were always around if you needed anything at all. Lots of fun things to do for the kids and it was all kept up so nicely. Would definitely stay there again or at some other KOA

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Awesome. Thanks for coming and we'll look for your return.

The deluxe cabin had an ant problem. The floor has some issues. The staff is very courteous qnd friendly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the ants, with all the rain this year they're looking for somewhere dry. The floor issue we passed along to the house keeping lead and we're glad you found a helpful, friendly staff. If there are ever any issues please let the office know while your here and we'll fix the problem. Thanks

Our stay at Hayward KOA was both adventurous and relaxing. We canoed the Namekagon River with our teenagers. KOA provided canes and all equipment plus took us to the river and brought us back. We appreciated the help of the friendly staff.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Tubing and canoeing if very popular and we're glad to assist in making your stay KOA great! Whole family fun is what we're about!
Aug 27, 2016
clean

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We clean the shower house every hour and every 15 minutes during heavy usage times. Thanks for noticing.
Aug 27, 2016
The staff was very friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to help us when our plans changed and we had to shorten our stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We'll always do all we're able to accomidate. Thank you for your comments.

One of the nicest campgrounds we have stayed in. Great place for family!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Whole family fun and a huge amount of kids activities.... Thanks for your comments.
Aug 26, 2016
We had a wonderful time at the KOA in Hayward. The folks were friendly, the facilities were clean and well maintained and the staff in the office were helpful. It was very entertaining for me when the train whistle blew in the late afternoon to see all the kids drop what they were doing and run to the wagon ride for a trip around the campground.
Aug 26, 2016
After arriving we find that most of the cool activities for the kids cost extra. extra. extra. extra. times three kids x 4 days = too much.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have completely FREE, Friday nite smores, 3 horseshoe pits, 4 bean bag toss, volley ball, 3 tether ball, spider web, basket ball, DJ dances, outdoor movies, nightly wagon rides, 80,000 gal pool, activities/games/crafts, themed weekends and 2 play grounds.......
Aug 26, 2016
Very impressed with the cleanliness of the grounds and our cabin!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks so much. We appreciate your words.

Very well run KOA campground in Hayward WI. Very kid friendly!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Awesome. Thanks!
Aug 25, 2016
The pool was not heated and very, very cold! I was unable to swim because it was freezing!! The wood we bought for our camp fires was wet and did not make a good fire. As soon as people leave their camp site the employees grab the wood left behind. I hope this wood is given to other campers and not sold again since it was already paid for!!
Aug 25, 2016
Always good time, staff is great, other campers are great,

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thats for sure.... We have a great group of guest. Thanks to everyone for assisting in making all other guests stay as fun as you wish for yours to be. The Golden Rule still rules at the Hayward KOA!
Aug 25, 2016
a fun time even with downpouring rain all day Sat. Love the artist doing her magic. Air conditioner went out in our cabin but the maintenance fellas came with a brand new one withing minutes! The only thing we wish had been done was cleaning off the golf "greens" with a leaf blower possibly? Former owners did that and really was nice. Very friendly staff doing their thing all about the campgr

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for all the comments. We blow off the greens every AM but with all the rain gets debri throughout the day.... very rainy weekend but still fun.
Aug 25, 2016
Great fun was had by all. Reasonable rates. Lots to do. Great staff. Clean. What more can you ask for??

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. Come visit us again.
Aug 24, 2016
Great place to stay. Lots to do for the kids. Maybe lighten up on the leash rule when dogs are at their camper. Not all dogs are runners, a lot listen really well and actually act up because they are not used to being on a tie out. Otherwise it's a good experience at your campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts. We don't know what dogs might be runners or not so for the safty and fun of all our guest.... leashes are required at all times for our furry friends.
Aug 24, 2016

Had a great time at the Hayward KOA. The weather didn't cooperate but we made the best of it. Will be back next year and do it again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We'll look for your return. Thanks for coming!
Aug 23, 2016
Great campground, but the showers desperately need to be updated and the sites are so small with very little fire pits. We love the breakfasts offered and the tubing is fun.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts. We have two shower houses that are in great condition and one is scheduled for remodle soon. This year we refurbished the guest laundry including new washerts and refurbished one of our lodges including all new carpet. We also installed a new Bounce Pillow this year.
Aug 23, 2016
All the way around, an excellent facility.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Exceeding the standards is our standard at the Hayward KOA. Thanks.
Aug 23, 2016
Well maintained; many fun things to do; family-oriented; friendly; great customer service.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have another year with a great staff. We're glad you found everthing to your liking. Thanks for coming.
Aug 23, 2016
Would like a grassy site next time but other then that it was very nice.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Trees, trees, trees... great for shade... not so much for grass. Try the 400's next time... a little more open and lots of grass!
Aug 23, 2016
Overall the kamp is very nice, put together, and well taken care of. My main critique would be the tightness of the sites. It was very tight, and the neighbors were extremely close. They happened to be very unruly and drunk which didn't make it easier. An 11pm quiet time is also very late for a lot of folks--especially since most are families. 10pm seems a lot more reasonable.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I appreciate your thoughts. We're listening and watching to see what we can do to continue to improve the overall experience of our guest.... Thank you.
Aug 23, 2016
Very clean facility, lots of things to do, and extremely helpful & friendly staff - we will DEFINITELY be back soon!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Exceeding the standards is the standard at the Hayward KOA and we're thrilled you and your family all enjoyed their stay. Thanks for noticing and thanks for your business. Come back soon.

Wonderful!!! Friendly & helpful staff, loved our patio site, nice pool and everything was very clean and well kept. Tractor ride, ice cream stand and weekend breakfast just icing on the cake. Would highly recommend!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great times! We're thrilled you found everything to your enjoyment.... Your why we do what we do and we appreciate your business.
Aug 22, 2016
Lots of stuff for the kids to do. I like the fact that they hire many employees to keep things clean like the bathrooms. Only have two down sides. First the site was two small for our rig, there wasn't room to have a fire pit.I requested a large site. The reservations system is not good.Usually you get a site # when you reserve. I was told one site when I reserved and given another.May stay again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yes. If you wish a particular site please call and speak to someone. The online system chooses whatever site is next on the list and it may not always be the desired size etc.... Thanks for your comment.
Aug 22, 2016
We loved staying at this campground. We were very impressed by the cleanliness and the numerous activities for the kids. Even in the rain, we still had a great time. Thank you!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Rain is an understatement! but still fun, fun! We gave out 400 free hot dog meals for the Guest Appreciation Day.... all thru the rain but enjoyable for everyone!
Aug 22, 2016
Other then the floor of my cabin being disgusting when I checked in and the weather being rainy. We had an amazing time and will be back next summer. Everyone was very helpful and nice. We had clean bathrooms and showers.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you had a good time even with all the rain.... sorry to hear about the florr??? If there is ever any issues we're here 24/7. Thanks.
Aug 22, 2016
While I understand the need to keep an eye on rowdy, I did feel like I was being watched all the time. With so many campers there should be more than one dump station

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

With so many families and so many children, we keep a very watchful security staff... not intended to intrude but fully trained to ensure a safe, fun camping experience for everyone.
Aug 22, 2016
Even with a rainy weekend, it was great! Amazing staff that offered to grab a ramp for our cabin (250), and same woman help me push my husband through the gravel to get to the pavilion for our delicious breakfast. Only thing that would be helpful is to add a companion bathroom. Stalls are too small for wheelchair transfer, and I couldn't have gone into a men's room to help. Thanks!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very good thoughts. Thanks for your comments.
Aug 22, 2016
It was great and very accommodating for us and the staff went above and beyond for us. We are coming back next month. Thanks!!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Awesome.... Can't wait to have you back! Thanks.
