The kids absolutely loved all of the family friendly amenities, and we enjoyed the welcoming feeling of the campground. Added bonus- all the showers and restrooms were incredibly clean! Plus, lots of fun activities for the little ones- we will definitely be back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Exceeding the expectations of our guest is our goal. Thanks for noticing and come back soon!

Lot of road noise, sites level but all on dirt, some gravel or tar would be nice, very nice helpful staff

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

My family and I have been coming here for over 15 years. I was disappointed with our cabin. There was an issue with the pull out mattress. It was too big for the couch. It made for miserable sleeping. No one seemed to care when I told them about the situation. The cabin was too small for 6.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are here 24/7 if there is ever an issue which is why when you had a problem with the mattress the maintenance crew brought you a brand new one. Please always let us know how we can help to make your stay great! Thanks for coming.

Love Hayward KOA! We have been there for several visits. People there are always friendly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great. We gave out 400 free hot dog meals during the recent Guest Appreciation Day. We thank you all for coming and look for your soon return.
Aug 20, 2016
We had a great time. Our complaint was the price for the tiny bit of fire wood; total rip off. Can also get pricey for the kids to do all the extra activities

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our firewood has had some issues this year which has been taken care of. We have a very limited supply of wood dealers locally and that causes an issue here. All of our wood is hardwood and not fast burning but we had to have a talk with the dealer to improve services to us for our guest sake. Thank

stayed 2 nights with our granddaughter. as usual we all had a great time!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Awesome...We appreciate your continued business and trust!
Aug 19, 2016
Kids had a great time as did the grown ups. Only negatives were the firewood was wet that we ordered from the office and didn't burn well and one day they dragged the dirt roads throughout the campground which made it extremely dusty and it only made the roads worse for walking and biking. It pulled up all the rocks that were already packed down in the road.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts. We're glad you had fun all but the dust.... I passed this comment along to our maintenance lead.
Aug 19, 2016
Had a great time, would like to come again next year and during 2017 rent L3. If someone wants to call me to discuss...218-879-2471.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks.... We'll give you a call!
Aug 19, 2016
everyone was so friendly and things were clean

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Your why we do what we do.... Thanks for coming!
Aug 19, 2016
Facilities were clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Koa's generally are more costly than other sites so it would be nice if more of the amenities were included included rather than a la carte.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Free themed weekend, nightly wagon rides, Friday nite smores, horse shoe pits, volley ball, tether ball, basket ball, bean bag toss, games/activities/crafts, 80,000 gal. pool, 4 people per site, Saturday nite DJ dance, outdoor movies.... fun fun, all included in the base price....
Aug 18, 2016
Spots are a bit too close together for me. Good for families with kids.
Aug 18, 2016
excellent location, clean and fairly quiet camping experience. nice location to other attractions

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts!
Aug 18, 2016
The only dislike was the unclean bathroom.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We power wash the shower houses every week and clean once an hour/ every 15 minutes during busy usages.... If there is ever an issue, Please let the office know. Thanks for your thoughts.
Aug 18, 2016
I am only giving this koa a 3 star on the fact that the handled a situation very poorly and unprofessional. The staff should have in place a handbook on how to handle incidents with their guests so they do not take situations personal and can remain professional. Otherwise loved my stay here!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry to hear there was an issue but unfortunantely I can't fix this situation not knowing what the actual problem was.... We always wish our guest to enjoy there stay problem free so as always if there are any issues please see the office and ask for a lead or manager.... We'll be happy to assist.
Aug 18, 2016
Very clean and super relaxing. Everyone was so friendly and eager to help out if needed

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very good. Thanks.
Aug 18, 2016
Very enjoyable

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. Come back soon. Halloween is Labor Day weekend... fun, fun.
Aug 17, 2016
too many camp sites for the land available. No grass, all sand and dirt.

Aug 17, 2016
We've been coming to this KOA for years. It's a great time, but they do nickel and dime you to death. I always warn people of that if they're thinking of going. The jumping pillow should be free for all people who pay to stay there. At the very least, include one day pass for each kid who's staying for a weekend. Same with the waterslide.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts. We're always looking for ways to cut our cost and will continue to do so. We're glad you had fun while here. Thanks for your continued business.
Aug 17, 2016
Good

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for visiting.
Aug 17, 2016
Keep up the good work. The staff and campground is on top of everything. A++++

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Your comments are appreciated. We have a great staff who help us make your stay KOA great! We want all of our guest to experience the same as you and your family. Come back soon.
Aug 17, 2016
Had a great stay! The cabin was very clean and staff was very friendly! We stayed in cabin KL2, the queen bed was very loud. Other then that-everything was great!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts.... we'll have the maintenance staff check out the loud bed.
Aug 17, 2016
Another great stay in this super clean and friendly campground. Few concerns: children's programs were religious in nature; people cutting through our campsite almost continuously; and the price of the wood bundles for what you get. Otherwise love this campground!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The glow show is put on by a local church once a year.... sorry about the cutting thru the sites, we have rules aginst such but it's up to the guest to be respectful... we're working to get new wood and a different price.... Thanks for your comments and fopr sharing.
Aug 17, 2016
Best KOA Campground that we have stayed in.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very good, We work hard so your stay is always Hayward KOA Great! Come back soon!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our guest make it great. Thanks for coming!
Aug 17, 2016
We've been coming here since 1994 and love it. Now we can share it with our kids. They had a blast. Thank you.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great! Come see us again.... Labor Day weekend is coming fast and it's Halloween... free haunted house, trick/treating/ costume contest, site decor contest... activities, games, themed DJ dance, outdoor movies... Come join the fun!
Aug 17, 2016
The ONLY downside on this stay was the bathroom and showers needed some extra help. Ran out of paper a couple of times and I know the showers were not cleaned well. For 2 days there was a Q-tip left in a shower. Otherwise, our stay was wonderful! Love the staff!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Wow.... that won't work... the house keeping lead has been notified. If there is ever ANY problems during your stay.... PLEASE let the office know asap. We can't fix what we don't know. WE"RE HERE FOR YOU AND WANT YOUR STAY HAYWARD KOA GREAT!!
Aug 16, 2016
Pool was green. Campsites were clean. I saw lots of employees cleaning and being very helpful. Disappointed with the site I got, right next to the highway. Plenty for the kids to do. Kids really like the carnival and glow show. They said the slide was cold. Thought the wristbands were a little overpriced.
Aug 16, 2016
We are going to do it every year. We had a great time. Thank you!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Awesome. Thanks for coming.

Part of a 9 day camping vacation. Always happy to stay at a KOA.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Another great time at the Hayward KOA. Thanks for your business. We look forward to seeing you again.

Part of a 9 day camping vacation. Always happy to stay at a KOA.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for stoping in. Come back soon.
Aug 16, 2016
It was pretty good. Very clean. Lots of activities for the kids/families. I would recommend that the water slide and jumping pillow be included in the price of our stay. Otherwise we loved it!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have many guest who never use the water slide or pillow so we have found the "one price fits all" doesn't work well, but thanks for your thoughts.
Aug 16, 2016
It was our first stay at a KOA and we were very impressed. Lots of activities - well maintained and friendly staff.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. Visit us again soon.
Aug 16, 2016
The campground is awesome but it would be nice if there were more activities included in the price of the stay. Other than that no complaints!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts...
Aug 16, 2016
I have stayed at 4 different KOAs this year and Hayward is far and away the best. You have activities going on every day, your grounds and buildings are clean and your staff is friendly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for noticing and for spending part of your summer with us here at our park. We appreciate your visiting with us.
Aug 16, 2016
My grandson loved it. The spot we were in was to crowded and congested. Wish we would have had a more private site. Otherwise everything was good. Staff was great.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The 400's and the 150's are very popular.... We're glad you enjoyed your stay.
Aug 16, 2016
Excellent time I enjoy all the activities you do for the children make them feel very special thanks for all the memories

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Making great memories at the Hayward KOA! Thanks so much for allowing us the opportunity to provide for your camping wishes.
Aug 15, 2016
Sites are too close together, difficult to move vehicles in and out
Aug 15, 2016
Great stay as usual. I don't give 5 stars because I feel quiet hours are too early and a group of adults sitting around a campfire talking should not be scolded like children.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Wow, our quiet hour is 11 PM!?? We have so many families with children that any later is out of line. We want all of our guest to enjoy their stay but the 11 PM hour is time to lower it down and allow others to enjoy the quiet night under the pines.
Aug 15, 2016
There are 2 complaints I have, one the tent site was way too small if the pine trees hadn't been right in the middle of the site it would have been ok. Second the fire wood bundles are a bit small for the price you pay for them. However my kids had a blast so that made up for those two things.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Awesome.... but we want all points great, so we're looking in to getting different wood and we'll take a look at the pine tree and see what we can do. Thanks for sharing.
Aug 15, 2016
Had the children with and they just loved all of the activities that you provide. We had a great time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Awesome. We're glad you had a fun time.
Aug 15, 2016
the sites are too close together. There should not be an extra cost for the jumping pillow. the WiFi is very slow and metered. the camp could use a good update. the staff is great.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts. We appreciate all comments and pay attention even if there is nothing that can be done about it. The new pillow, as an example, was many thousands of dollars and cannot be free even though many think it should be. We will lower all cost as our budget allows.
Aug 15, 2016
Really disappointed they had to drain pool and when filled ice cold! So 2 of our 3 day vacation couldn't use pool. Other than that great!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry.... we had a maitenance break unexpectably and had to complete the repairs and with a 80,000 gal, 9 foot deep pool it takes a day to get back up to tempature.

Very busy look like it was running at 90%+ on my stay. My location was near the major highway so was it bit on the noise side. Everyone seemed to be having fun.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The south end of the park has popular siotes and is quieter. We have been very busy this year and that seems to just makes things a little more fun. We're here for you and we appreciate your staying!
Aug 15, 2016
Great facilities and activities! Campsite was adequate and was pleased at the security and diligence that the staff take to ensuring that everyone's stay is great! Bathrooms were amazingly clean as was the pool and waterslide. Loved the caricatures, and glow weekend festivities!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks so much. We 'll pass along your comments to our staff. Come back soon.

Very nice facilities. Everything was clean and in good repair. The kids enjoyed the pool, water slide ,bouncing pillow, and mini golf. 2 bedroom cabin was very nice. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. Grandpa got to take his grandson on his first canoe trip.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

SWEET! Great times, great menories at the Hayward KOA. Thanks for allowing us the opportunity to provide you and your family with a fun, clean, safe camping experience.
