Campground Reviews

Aug 19, 2014
The minute I pulled into Hayward Koa, I knew it was going to be a mess. The cabin I stayed in the prev. yr & reserved a year in advance ad been moved..and in its place was a log. When I checked in the comp froze up. I was told to come back later. When checking out They had me down to leave the next day and said theyd refund me. Ive left 3 messages for the owners & havent got a call!!!!

The only complaint is the wifi was down all weekend. (I have to check work emails)

Sites were very narrow/small and close to one another. It was also disappointing that even though we stayed 5 nights we had to pay more to buy a wristband for the waterslide and jumping pillow for the kids - I would think those items would be included with a minimum night stay of maybe 2 nights.

good rain,next at night was loud music after 10pm small table to eat at in cabin out of rain ok

It was never explained to us at check-in (or on website) that all the amenities came with an additional cost. My two children literally got yelled at for not having an armband which we knew nothing about. Also, highway traffic is EXTREMELY loud. We were fortunate to have been able to move to the back of the campground where it is MUCH quieter.

Loved our stay! Second year in a row. Next year I would stay in the sites behind the office, the highway noise was way too loud on the sites to the side of it. I wished the bathrooms were cleaned more often than once a day, they got a little gross. I had a cold shower on Sunday morning, I didn't like that, but no one else did, must have been my shower. I LOVE the campgrounds. Very nice, very clean

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. Sorry about the shower...if you ever experience a problem while here at the park, please let the office know and we'll get right on it. We'll check the showers. Glad you enjoyed your stay.

It was nice, very kid family friendly with extremely clean bathroom facilities. We thought the sites were a little small and there was no grass which we prefer.

Thanks for your comments.

We had yet another fantastic stay at the Hayward Wisconsin KOA. The only thing I wish they had that they don't is a hot tub. Other than that the rest is perfect. We will definitely be back again.

Great....It is our goal for our guest to have a great stay at the Hayward KOA! Thanks

Other campers sure don't know camping code. NO WALKING THROUGH OTHER CAMPERS SITES! Glow performers were not as good as last year.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We always enjoy the glow show....they will be back next year!

We always have a great time and love the themed weekends. Our grand children can't wait to get there.

Great! We're glad you and your grand kids had a fun time. Thanks for your business.

This KOA is a wonderful place to stay especially with children. There were many activities and the staff was friendly and helpful. The maintenance man went above and beyond in assisting me. I reserved one of the new "tipis" and it leaked terribly when it began to rain. The tent floor and all my bedding was wet and I had water dripping on my head and pillow. I was disappointed with my accommodatio

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your comments..Checking the weather forecast before a planned tipi stay is always a good idea. Usually the tipis are pretty good in the rain, except with the downpours, like the last couple days. We hope the rest of your stay was good. Next time check out one of our kabins or a new lodge.

There were four campers in our party. The facility had many amenities and the pancake breakfast was very good. Facility needs more grass. Staff was courteous and friendly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. We're glad you and your party enjoyed the time here at our park.....Trees are great for shade but not too good to grow grass.
Aug 19, 2014
Wish we could have stayed longer! The site we were in (97) was difficult to turn our 5th wheel into without hitting trees. The road is a bit narrower there plus there are of course vehicles parked where ever they will fit. Took some maneuvering! Our grand kids love the playgrounds!

We're glad you and your grand kids had a great time. Visit our website for weekly activities. Thanks for you business.

We really enjoyed our stay. The only bummer is that you have to pay for everything except for the pool. I can see paying for ice cream, golf, and tubing. But it seems like the jumping pillow and waterslide would be inclusive for guests. It gets to be pretty expensive after a couple days. Bummer.

Our stay was great! The kids loved all of activities availiable. We stayed in a cabin that was very clean and had lots of room. I would recomend this campground to anyone.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

And we hope you do....most of our guests come and visit due to recommendations from our other guests. Happy campers usually know other happy campers and you're all welcome at the Hayward KOA!! Come visit us again when you have the chance and we're glad you and your family enjoyed your time with us.

Glad to see the addition of horseshoe pits and bean bag toss-things that are free but that people can't necessarily pack. We have our own cabin on a lake-but it's nice to spend a couple nights away from there doing other things. I'm sure we'll be back next year too!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great! We thought with the addition of the 3 new lodges, additional bean bag toss and the new horseshoe pits would be enjoyed! Have fun. Thanks
Aug 18, 2014
There was so much for the kids to do, that I didn't need to entertain them. I felt like I was on vacation too.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Whole family fun and relaxation is our goal! You're why we do what we do. We're glad you all had a great time at our park.

Had a great time and stayed in a new Deluxe Cabin. Campground was extremely busy because it was a weekend.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for staying with us. Come back soon.

The staff did not tell us anything about the KOA at check in except our site number. They mistakenly gave our site to someone else. We later asked when the mini golf closed and we were told that it closed at 9:15 because they were having glow golf after dark. We decided to go to glow golf but found out the glow golf ended at 9:15 not the regular golf. We had already put out our fire for the night

This is our favorite KOA!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Ours too! Thanks! We have so many great guests who help make the park what it is. Having a busy park, full of fun-lovin people, make all the labor worth while. You're why we do what we do and we look forward to your return! Check out the website for weekly themed activities.

Had a great time as always. Be back next year!

See ya then! Thanks for your business.

Felt like more of a resort instead of a campground. Nice place to camp.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We used to manage a park named "resort" that we had a hard time making into a campground. This is a campground that many of our guests refer to as a resort! We appreciate your comments and help in making our park stand out! We believe a happy park makes happy campers! Thanks and come again soon.

great place for the kids. firewood is expensive, would have been nice to have a one time fee to supply your firewood to your site? Only bad thing was the condition of the bathrooms and showers in the building by the waterslide. dirty with lots of bugs. curtains on stalls for changing area and shower do not cover the whole entry way. Other than that will be definitely be coming again in future

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts. We have completed some updating in those restrooms, but have more in our plans for next season. There are 2 additional shower houses in the mean time. We'll look for your return. Thanks

We had a family camping trip of 24 people. The youngest were twins age 11 months old. The oldest was 68 years. We played candy bar bingo, mini golf, used the swimming pool, biked around the campgrounds and of course sat around the campfire. There was something for everyone to do. The workers at the campgrounds were very helpful and friendly. The only thing I missed was grass at the sites.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're very glad you and your group had a good time. We try to provide whole family fun and we have many groups throughout the year who have a great time at this park! Trees, trees, trees....great for shade, not so much for grass. Thanks
Aug 13, 2014
The people are friendly, the campground is clean and my kids love the pool!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you....hurry back soon.

We very much enjoyed our stay. I would like to say I am a manager at a casino in WI. You have very happy employees. What ever your doing to make them happy keep it up. It made our experience great. The couple you had Sat. night doing games and DJ were above and beyond great!! Wish all my employees glowed as yours do!! :)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We really appreciate your comments. We pride ourselves in our staff and place so much of this park's success in what they labor at daily. I'll pass your thoughts along. Thanks again.

I did not like our site as it was too close to the road and noisy. There was little grass. I did like the activities for the kids, liked the pool, pillow and planned activities

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great! We're glad you liked the stay and always glad to move a guest to another site if there is one available....just check the office and one of our friendly agents will be glad to assist you. Our goal.....Happy Campers!!! Thanks again.

I would recommend this campground to anyone visiting the area. For us it was a great bonus to be able to use the ATV trail to ride our bikes into town. (short 3 miles) It was just a little too crowded for me.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. The ATV trails, directly from the park, are a big advantage to our location that many of our guest use frequently. Possibly a mid-week visit or after Labor Day weekend would be less crowed in the park. Thanks for your business.
