Campground Reviews

Jul 28, 2015
We had a great family camp! The staff at the KOA were great and the grounds and pool are kept really clean!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for noticing. We're glad you enjoyed the park. Come back soon
Jul 28, 2015
Pool gate should be kept closed at all times so little ones can't wander in. Sign should be posted near group area - Registration ahead. So many campers pull into that area thinking that is the way they need to go. Dust control should be put on the main road to keep the dust down. Just a couple of suggestions! Always have a great time!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Parts have been ordered for the pool gate. Signage has been ordered for the office direction... and we're installing a speed bump for those who just can't drive 5 MPH. Thanks for your suggestions.

Campground was clean and even though we didn't have kids along it seemed to have a lot of activities to keep kids entertained. Enjoyed our weekend at KOA - Hayward

Employees and campers were very helpful and friendly. We had our 5 year old grandson with us and he loved every minute.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great! Our guest having a fun time is why we're here.... young, older and everyone in between. Whole family fun can be found at the Hayward KOA.
Jul 28, 2015
WE stayed here because of the lumberjack days and we wanted to camp. Dont think we would return its to busy campsites r like on top of each other. thats not how we like to camp. also the wood u get hardly anything for the price of it. All the workers were very friendly and all ways were smiling that was nice!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comments.

Being usual state park campers, we were unsure of what to expect at a KOA and were *pleasantly* surprised. The Hayward KOA has much to offer...pool, playground, mini-golf, organized activities, etc. The best part of the Hayward KOA was the employees. Everyone was friendly and helpful... special props to Matt and Georgi (the grounds are beautiful!).

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks so such. We get many comments such as this from folks who have driven by our park but never stopped in.... feel free top come check us out. We have much more than most expect. Thanks for your thoughts....we'll pass them along.

We had a great time at your Kampground! This was our first family camping trip (2-11 year olds, 1-8 year old and a 6 year old) and the kids didn't want to leave! We spent a lot of our time on the waterslide, pool, tubing the river and the evening activities. We had a great time and will be back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It's hard to go back home from having fun and we appreciate you visiting our park. Come back soon.
Jul 28, 2015
The amenities and services offered were excellent. Everything was made readily available and easy to understand. My only gripe would be the path that runs from KOA to the town of Hayward was extremely overgrown making it unpleasant to bike or walk to town. Overall it was a great experience that I will do again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very good.... We'll look for your return... Just FYI, For a nice bike ride on pavement....Phipps Road, that runs right beside the park is enjoyable especially in the evenings.
Jul 28, 2015
We enjoy our stay! And will be back!! Except we lost power with a busted breaker on Saturday. And I the line wait for tubing was pretty ridiculous. Besides this issue we loves our stay and will be back

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Hurry back and thanks for spending part of your time with us.
Jul 28, 2015
I will make Hayward KOA my camping vacation again next year this is my favorite KOA. The only wish I have is I would like to see more handicap accessibility; meaning I would like to get into the store, have more room in handicap bathroom (unable to close door for privacy), and more cabins available for the disabled.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you.... We appreciate the comments and will look into the opportunity to up-date some areas.
Jul 28, 2015
This is the best campground. The activities that they have for kids is the best.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We work hard to make your stay great and we appreciate your noticing and spending some of your summer with us.
Jul 28, 2015
Friendly and helpful staff. We will be back next year

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We'll look for your return..... Thanks for your comments.
Jul 27, 2015
My reservation was not correct when I got there, despite calling to confirm and the "lead" working, seemed very put off by having to fix it. We were not informed of the activities prices/packages for my family of 7. If it weren't for Julie, my family wouldn't have done much! She is fantastic!!! Nice campsite, nice people, maybe return.
Jul 27, 2015
Really liked the campground and all it had to offer, especially the camp kitchen. was disappointed that we were not able to check in when we got in to town at 11:00, I could understand if sites were full and not ready yet but the tent sites were open except for a few.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Prior to having anyone check into any open site, our maintenance crew picks the site for any debris and clean out the fire pit so the arriving guest has a nice clean site.... some days we have up to 190 check-outs and that takes a while to clean, so even if it's vacant, it may not be ready. Thanks
Jul 27, 2015
With more RVs coming out with 50 amp hook ups I would like to see more 50 amp sites in the park.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Us too.... we're up-dating all we're able as budget and time allows and we'll continue into the following years.
Jul 27, 2015
Great Campground!! Lots to do for families and kids; Clean; Quiet; Friendly staff; Beautiful location nestled into the pines.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I like to see the moon rising up through the pines....beautiful.
Jul 27, 2015
cabin was very clean, public bathrooms very clean. staff were friendly and helpful. campground was busy but quiet. will stay again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great. We always copy all comments and pass them out to our staff.
Jul 27, 2015
Friendly staff. Busy, fun place for the whole family, but also quiet. Clean restrooms. 3rd year in a row we've stayed here and it just keeps getting better! We will be back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We just keep working away at the park to bring it to a standard that exceed the expectation of our guest. We then meet success. Thanks for your continued trust and business over the years.
Jul 27, 2015
Very clean campground & friendly staff. Helped with getting a shuttle to the Lumber Jack events.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Timber!!!! Lots of fun at the Lumberjack shows. Glad we could help!

It was good

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks a lot.
Jul 27, 2015
This is one of my favorite places to camp with my kids. There is not only so much to do just in the campground but also in town. You will never be bored! But unfortunately this past time we camped there, my friends son got blisters from the jumping pillow being so hot! We asked the lady in the office for a bandaid and she told us we would have to buy them! Shouldn't they have a first aid kit?

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The park was very busy with many kiddos enjoying the pillow with no other incidents of blister's reported. We don't give out any first aid supplies as we then take a liability for anothers health. We have new, clean, small first aid kits available for a low cost in the general store. Thanks.
Jul 25, 2015
The staff that had been there years previous, we're great. The ones we hadn't seen before were less than friendly. Our cabin had a 'cleaned under here" tag...but three feet away was a receipt on the floor from previous guest. One guy seemed to just ride the cart around, doing nothing but kept driving by and staring...Repeatedly. not even saying hi.creepy.
Jul 25, 2015
This campground needs dust control or blacktop on main entrance we were in the front by golf and bouncy bag ever vehicle that came in or went out the dust was incredible my camper and food I was preparing was covered the picnic table needed to be washed off before it was used. Both children and adults do not respect your camp site they walk thru like it's there own there is a fee for everything
Jul 25, 2015
The outdoor kitchen made it. Beautiful location...tube shuttle was great...can definitely see myself returning. Thanks!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Come visit us again and bring your friends.... we enjoy hosting family reunions as well.
Jul 25, 2015
The camp ground has a nice pool. They offer miniature golf and its worth the dollar per person. The prices for the kids to go on the air pillow and water slide are to high. Other than that we had a blast,lots to do, staff are very friendly and that sets a very nice atmosphere for the campground. Also appreciated the very clean restrooms.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts. We're glad you and your group had a blast!
Jul 25, 2015
We had a great stay. The kids loved the olayground, pool and waterslide. I liked the outdoor kitchen to do the dishes.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The Kamping Kitchen....very popular with our tent campers.... stove tops to cook breakfast and double sinks for washing up the dishes...
Jul 24, 2015
$60.61 is too high a price for what the campground offers. I felt bad for families who pay that and then have to pay extra for some of the fun things they have there. The campers next to us put their campfire right next to our rig. We had to shut the windows and worry that sparks wouldn't fly into the front of our rig where our diesel generator is placed! We felt very crowded...
Jul 24, 2015
It's the best for my grandsons ages 7 & 8 and me also.There is so much to keep them busy and lots of other great kids every time we stay.The jumping pillow sets this campground at the top of the list.It's the cleanest,best kept and staffed by a great bunch of people.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Whole family fun.... thanks for spending part of your time with us.
Jul 23, 2015
It was difficult to reserve for next year

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

If there is ever an issue in the park.... PLEASE see a manager. Most of our guests re-book for the following year and there are seldom any issues.... it's what we do. We will take a look at your reservation and look into the issue. Thanks for the information.
Jul 23, 2015
We had a great stay until my group went back to rebook and were given the run around about why we couldn't rebook for a later date! It was very confusing and we were not happy with the staffs lame answers to why we couldn't book for next year and that they had already given away our spots for the same week next year! I hope to be able to find a time to visit again since we did have a great time

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

All of our current guests usually have first choice at making the next years reservations, as long as it is with-in 24 hrs of their current stay. There had to be a particular, isolated reason as to any problems. We will look into the situation. Thanks for visiting us this season and we hope to see y
Jul 23, 2015
Staff was friendly and helpful, facilities were clean and in good order. Campground was quiet at night. And they delivered my firewood to the site! Loved our time there, we spent a week there last year and that is why we went back this year. Will check out other koa campgrounds for different areas we want to go.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We work hard in order for you to enjoy your stay here and happy trails on your up-coming camping trips!
Jul 23, 2015
We had a great time! The sweet man who delivered our wood was especially nice and helpful! We had a great experience with the office staff too. Thank you for a great experience.

We appreciate your visiting us this season. Come back soon.

Problem with site pricing during stay. Upon our return home, Tony resolved expediously.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very good. Glad I could help!
Jul 23, 2015
Great time. Campground very clean everyone helpful and pleasant. Nice activities onsite and many more close attractions. Only experience that left a sour note was the tubing --driver said we would be picked up in 1 1/2 hr it was 2hours 15 min-that was not good. The tubing was great--should be more reliable with pick up.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the info. We will check with the drivers of the situation at that time. We're glad you enjoyed your stay...come back soon.
Jul 23, 2015
Family friendly with lots for the kids to do. Thanks for the memories. See you next year!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We appreciate having the opportunity to help make your vacation time fun and being able to provide a service that makes great memories for you and your family/friends. We always say the the small ones will remember this park for the rest of their lives and we want those memories to be great. Thanks
Jul 23, 2015
We loved the campground and really appreciated how clean our cabin was. However, I was extremely disappointed in the experience I had trying to rebook for the following year. I Wanted the same group of cabins for the same dates next year and was told someone had already booked it. yet I was not allowed to book the week after because of your policy! Because of this we may not visit next year.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Most of our guest return into our cabins for many years due to our policy that those who may be in any cabin have first dibs on the next years reservations. Many yearly family reunions occur here due to that advantage. We are always happy to assist where able while treating all guest fairly. Thanks

We love to stay here. We will be back next year for sure. Hoping this year again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Many of our guests repeat throughout the same season, so it would be great if you could visit again..... Labor Day weekend will be fun, fun, fun!

Very nice campground. The restroom and showers were very clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Jul 22, 2015
The Cleanest, most friendly campgrounds we have ever stayed at. We have already booked a stay for next year..

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. This particular park is an unbelievable amount of labor and it is all worth it when we hear our guest have had a great time. You're why we're here and we appreciate your visiting us.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Come back soon.... bring the kiddos...
Jul 22, 2015
love Hayward, wi koa. our 216 a campsite is the only downfall of this family friendly campground. we had a river go through our campsite from the waterslide they put us next to.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

If there is ever a problem with a site, please let the front desk know asap and we will do all we are able to rectify the issue. Thanks.... we will check out the waterslide situation.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Ho, ho, ho.... next week is Pirate weekend..... arrrrrrg, and chocolate weekend is coming up soon.
Jul 22, 2015
The only suggestion I would give is to include golf,bikes, pillow and slide onto stay for a fee of $10 a person or something. The slide was great but no one was using it either. Kids were on the pillow that didn't have wrist bands as well. We also could not find a price list on the web for any of the extra activities which made it hard to budget. However, the campground was very clean and ni

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your thoughts. We have taken a look at this scenario and found that many of our guests do not wish to use all of the amenities offered here in the park, such as seniors. We are constantly looking for ways to save you $$ and will continue to adjust as our budgets allow.
