We had a great time exclamation staff was very accommodating they even helped us with our reservation so that our two groups could be closer together within the campground. The kids love all of the activities. We will be back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We'll look for your return. So many of our guest repeat throughout the season. We enjoy hosting family reunions as well.

There are a great many things for kids to enjoy here; everything is very reasonably-priced and the staff is extra-kind and patient. The plentiful mature red pines are a very attractive feature of the grounds. All that is needed and more for great family memories is available here. --Benjamin, Duluth, MN

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You allowing us to be a part of making those great memories is appreciated. The little ones will remember camping for years to come and we're glad you chose the Hayward KOA for your families stay. Come back soon.

We have always stayed at this KOA with our kids. 10 years later,we brought our2 granddaughters. The upgrades and changes are fabulous. They're favorite was the jumping pillow. ( they are 2 & 4).

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very good....more updates are in the works and as always continued fun, fun, fun.

In the 30 years that my family has been camping at this campground, the power outage that occurred during the weekend of Aug. 14-16, 2015 was the first time I have ever seen that happen. It was unfortunate for the ones without power, but I hope they will try this KOA again in the future!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks so much for the confidence you have placed in our park over the last many years. Excel had an underground transformer blow and it took a while to repair but all is well. Thanks for your business and hurry back soon.

Very nice campground. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. Wasn't a fan of having to pay extra for waterslide, mini golf, and jumping pillow. Overall good stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts. Glad you had a good time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This was a great place to spend time with my kids and grandchildren. everyone had a great time. One issue I would like to make note of is that all your lodges are priced the same, but some of the lodges were a lot better than others. For example, the first night I stayed in KL6 and it was very nice, the second and third nights I stayed in KL2, and I was disappointed in that lodge as a comparsio

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Good points..... thanks for your thoughts.
Aug 20, 2015
Loved the cabins! Would recommend increase in rates and make it all inclusive though so kids don't have to asking for additional monies.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the thoughts.... the all inclusive hasn't worked because so many of our guest don't use all or any of the amenities.... and they don't want to pay for what they don't use....

This was our fourth and final year at your KOA. I would strongly suggest that you work on the staff and how they accommodate and change their attitudes to the guests! Not pleasant at all from the lady at the desk to the gentleman moving your stuff around the pool!! Then to top off while making reservation not having your calls returned and always unwilling to accommodate a group in ridiculous! You

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Are you sure you were at our park? We get a HUGE amount of very positive comments on the helpfulness and friendliness of our staff. We accommodate dozens of groups throughout the season and we pride ourselves in our customer service which is testified to by dozens of guest reviews.

Our last minute plans led us to stay at KOA. We have experienced KOA black hills s Dakota. Loved it there. We were disappointed we had to pay for water slid etc. Should be included because site is spendy. We will be returning next July but for lumber jack days where activity will be away from camp ground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great.... Thanks for coming. Lumberjack weekend is great and we have a shuttle service which takes you to/from the park directly to the competition. No parking problems!. See you next year.

It was a hot week-end, the power in the park went out all around us but owner did a great job restoring the power.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are very glad we were able to deal with that situation with a fair amount of ease. Excel really worked quickly to replace their blown transformer and all was well! Come again soon.

Thanks much!

Nice tent site. But the pool water was very cold. Also, the shower had very little pressure and not very hot. The breakfast was very good. A little expensive for everything because everything except the pool cost money.

Camp sites were very clean. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. My 3 children, ages 12, 9 and 7, had a fabulously fun time!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Fabulous! That's why we do what we do. You and you family experiencing a fun filled, safe camping experience in what Midwest Living described as one of only 5 super camps in the mid-west. Whole family fun. Come back soon.
Aug 18, 2015
The best part of our stay was the friendly, helpful staff! Very nice people. It was nice to have the honey wagon option. We felt that the campsites were way too close together. We also felt that the activities were a bit overpriced. There were no doggie poop bags in the dog run for 2 days. Most campgrounds we've been to have doggie bags placed in several locations throughout the campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have three doggie spots which are stocked regularly. if there is ever any issues in the park.... we're here 24/7. Please let the office know. We have a great staff and we'll pass along your thoughts.

Once again had fantastic stay with the grand kids ! Thank you!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

So many of our guest return many times throughout the season and we were glad to see you again. Come back soon and bring the grandkids! This week-end is customer appreciation weekend during our Hawaiian theme! Brings your Hawaiian shirts and join in during the DJ dance!

great friendly service as usual!!!!

We appreciate your comments and thanks for choosing the Hayward KOA for your camping needs!

I would think the deluxe cabins would have a little stove.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Check out our deluxe cabins KL3 or KL4 which have stoves as well.... it's all in the descriptions listed on the web site or call the office and we'll be glad to send you in the best directions for your camping needs. Thanks.

We enjoyed our stay very much at the campground the bathrooms were extremely clean staff was friendly there is always something to do we loved the entertainment and expecially the glow show was awesome this was our first time to stay and I'm sure we will be back again

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The glow show is my top favorite and the folks who put on the show are great! We appreciate your coming and spending time at our park. Come again when you can and enjoy another fun, themed weekend!
Aug 18, 2015
The stay was good. There was a pretty long wait for the Tubing Both before we left and waiting along side the road after. WE did loose power for some of the stay. It didn't seem to affect anything that we were doing and I feel they handled the problem well. We did have to use some other means to keep food and stuff cold but al was well in the end. we will be back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

A transformer of Excels blew but they we're quick at the repairs thankfully! We appreciate your spending time with us and will be looking for your return. Thanks for your thoughts.
Aug 18, 2015
tent site. kitchen facility was the first time i've seen that! and very helpful. tent site well treed - great. pool was great. this is probably the most deluxe KOA i''ve ever stayed at. great service. bathrooms were good. maybe a bit undersized. saturday eve event was great. Price was a little higher than typical, but then you get a lot for the fee.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Now that's the Hayward KOA. Thanks for your business and thanks for noticing. We appreciate your comments and hope you can come back soon.
Aug 18, 2015
We gad a great time. The staff was polite and professional. My only dislike was with the cost vs the size of wood bundles and the actual size of the pieces.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your comments. You would thinks we would have the options of many areas to obtain bundled wood in the North woods of Wisconsin but that's not the case and the fellow we were getting the wood from retired. I'll take a look at the bundles and see what we can do. Thank for the information.
Aug 18, 2015
Waterslide staff were rude but otherwise had a great time!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for coming to the park. We'll check on the slide but we're glad everything else was great. If your in the area.... Labor Day weekend will be a blast! Bring your costumes and site decorations!
Aug 18, 2015
Very enjoyable. We stayed to go to a couple activities in Hayward and the campground worked out great.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Only three miles from all that Hayward has to offer and a fun camping experience to boot! Thanks for making the Hayward KOA your spot to stay. Come back soon.
Aug 18, 2015
Good time! Friendly Staff!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Once again! Thanks for your continued business and we look for your return. We appreciate when our guest have a great time and work hard to ensure the best available in camping. Check out our new web-site and come visit again..... Labor Day will be a blast!
Aug 18, 2015
We booked our site over the phone but when we arrived were told we got bumped, into a very small site which was disappointing..something about not getting locked into the site number when we booked??? We were then able to move to one of the working sites which turned out to be a very nice site which we were happy with. We want to come back however most sites seem too tight. Will be back next year!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

As you become more accustomed to the park and like a particular area or site... you have first dibs at the next years reservations. This way your always ensured a site which you'll be home away from home on and it helps make your stay great. Glad we could help move you this visit. Thanks for coming.
Aug 18, 2015
My family had an awesome time this weekend. So many fun things to do. The Glow Show was amazing. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The Tipi we stayed in was very cool. Definately will be coming back!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your comments. We work hard to make your stay great and we're glad you had a blast....

We LOVED the amenities of the Kampground, the pool, golf and the activities that were offered i.e. free smore's; Glow Show etc. The staff were EXCELLENT they were friendly, helpful and always smiling. We were impressed. My husband and I both work with employees and I loved the attitudes there. We did lose power for a few hours and of course worried for our pet and food etc. but they fixed it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Another one! Thanks so much.... Excel blew a transformer and we were partially affected but they we're quick at their work and all was well. Thanks for spending part of your time with us!
Aug 18, 2015
The traffic noise was lound from hyw 63.also the dust from campground roads was too much

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You need the south end of the park.... larger sites, grass and quieter. If we can ever be of help during your stay....please see the office and we'll assist every way we're able!
Aug 18, 2015
Was a great stay, except for all the dust from vehicles near our site, felt like we were eating and breathing dust. Had a lot of fun though!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

To say Saturday was a hot dry day is an understatement! We finally have rain and we need it. We're glad you had a fun time.

Fun, very busy campground, interesting shows

Mattresses in camping cabins were extremely uncomfortable,too thin and no support,could feel the wood slats underneath. Hotel type beds would be much nicer. Overall it's much too crowded,too many people,not relaxing at all but kids enjoyed all the activities

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Most of the cabins have new 5 inch mattresses. If your in the area after Labor Day weekend, it's a great time to visit and see the Autumn colors at the same time.... what-a-package.
Aug 17, 2015
There were a lot of fun things to keep my three busy boys entertained, we all had a great time!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very good.... That's our gaol and we're glad you had fun. Come back soon.

Clean accomodations, good customer service, lots of options for kids, but pool was FREEZING...

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We maintain the pool at 81 degrees but did have a maintenance issue which dropped the temps for a day. We're back to our normal selves again... Come join the fun!
Aug 17, 2015
We were passing through for a few days and it was a great place to stay.we were centrally located to visit Duluth and other area attractions.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great.... so many drive past us not realizing what we actually have to offer. We're glad your stopped and had fun with us this year. Come back if your ever in the area again. Thanks
Aug 16, 2015
Staff was very crabby/snotty this year. Also, was very disappointed when the pool was closed. Just wish they wouldve told us before we checked in, when you spend 130.00 a night to use the pool we would've rescheduled.
Aug 16, 2015
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.
Aug 16, 2015
We enjoyed ourselves!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That's what matters. Thanks for spending time at our park.
Aug 16, 2015
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.....
