We arrived at about 8:00 pm after a long day of traveling. No reservations. Staff found room for us and were very helpful. Campground was very busy, but we enjoyed our short stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We hope you can come back and stay for a longer period of time.

Shower was moldy

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Wow.... What shower? We power wash weekly and clean all bathroom every 15 minutes during heavy usage times.
Jul 21, 2016
Great stay, although the one room Camping Cabins are overpriced at $90.00/night.
Jul 21, 2016
This was my 3rd visit and hopefully not my last, I love this campground! It's clean, has a ton of activities and the staff are super nice! Plus Hayward is just a great little town!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the comments. It's a great description of the park and the area. We appreciate your thoughts and strive to exceed your expectations.
Jul 20, 2016
The CAMP SITES WERE WAY TO CLOSE had no room to do anything. The only think you got free is the pool and that is not right. For the high price you should get the water slide and put put free. would not go back to this place.Cost way to much $$ for what you get.

Great place for families with children
Jul 20, 2016
Nice campsite with space. It would have been nice to know prior to staying there the jumpy pillow and waterslike were extra. This was not stated anywhere. When we went to purchase wristbands we were not notified that there was a week long pass from staff. Wagon rides for the kids nightly were a huge hit!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Nightly wagon rides and ....watch for the swamp monster! The free smores every Friday night is a great family fun as well. Staying more than a couple days??? The $36.00 arm band is the way to go.
Jul 20, 2016
We had a great time. Staff not nearly as friendly as they were 3-4 years ago, the staff change has made this koa worse in my family's eyes.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

With the hundreds of positive staff remarks we have it's difficult to see what you may have seen. We are always interested in our guest thoughts and whenever there is an issue.... please see the office or ask for a lead. Thanks.

This was our 20th yr returning to this KOA and it was very much a disappointment. We bring 40+ people to this location every year for a reunion dropping $1000's of dollars every yr. And every year we rebook prior to leaving to ensure we can reserve our same sites and every year there are at least 2-3 families how's sites have been given away...I've been waiting for a return phone call for 3 days.
Jul 19, 2016
The friendliest staff of any KOA I have ever stayed at. The only draw back at all is the traffic noise.
Jul 19, 2016
people were great and friendly. site 5 was all sand and the other 2 sites we had in our group were rock and nice. site 5 need rock on it. we had sand all over the inside of camper. we had a great time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have brought in dozens of yards of gravel and are working our way thru the sites.... We'll put 5 on the list. Thanks for the info...
Jul 19, 2016
First time being at this camp ground. The staff deserves a big applause. Everyone was very courteous, friendly and helpful. Our grand children enjoyed the variety of activities that were there. The grounds and restrooms are kept very clean and the theme weekends are wonderful. We will definitely be camping there again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Can't wait to have you back. Remember to see our web-site for all weekly themed activities.
Jul 19, 2016
We had three sites for our family. Our five grandchildren loved all the fun activities during the week and weekend. They especially enjoyed the waterslide, the jumping thing, the pool, mini-golf and the playground. The bathrooms were always kept clean and swept out. The staff was extremely helpful in all situations. I would suggest banning four wheelers from driving around the campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for all the comments. We're thrilled you all enjoyed your stay here at the park. All 4 wheelers shlould drive only from the site to the ATV gate or back.... no driving around the park and our security watches to ensure.
Jul 19, 2016
Had a wonderful stay and loved our site! Staff was very friendly and helpful. Thanks again!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you, We appreciate your business and look forward to your returning when time permits. Halloween is always popular and coming during Labor Day weekend.... Haunted house, trick/treating, site decor contest, custume contest. Fun, Fun.
Jul 18, 2016
This is truly a place for kids! We have a 2 year old and a 4 year old and there was never a dull moment. If you are looking for a great place to stay with TONS of fun things for children of all ages to enjoy, this is the place for you!

Jul 18, 2016
Great place, lots of activities, but very tight camping quarters and too close to a busy, loud, highway.
Jul 18, 2016
Activities were lacking and every activity cost money to do such as bounce pillow, water slide, and simple arts and crafts for the kids. Wood cost was very high for the area, and the site was very narrow and cramped.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This was Christmas in July and NONE of the arts/crafts had a charge with games/activities, craft and DJ dance. And outdoor movies all weekend and no charge. The waterslide and jumping pillow are a separate charge. We are in the process of installing a brand new jumping pillow today! Thanks
Jul 18, 2016
It was a very clean campground. A good overall experience.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great! Come back soon. Halloween is scheduled for Labor Day weekend and is always a ton of fun.... trick/treat, haunted house, site decor contest etc....
Jul 18, 2016
We really like this KOA. Staff was extremely busy yet very friendly & helpful. 24 hour laundry with new large capacity washers very nice. Around $3.50 per load to wash & dry. Aluminum can only recycling. Good trail adjacent to KOA to walk dogs.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We just refurbished our guest laundry this year including new machines. We would love to recycle plastics etc but in Hayward there is no place for commericial business to do so, only residential. Thanks
Jul 18, 2016
Clean, friendly campground

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Family fun for the whole family has always been our objective and we're glad you visited us this season.
Jul 18, 2016
I liked how clean the campground was. The amenities were nice. I have nothing bad to say about the offerings. This was the first time staying at a KOA. I was not ready for the tight quarters but it was explained to us that this was normal for a KOA. That was the only issue I had and it wouldn't prevent me from going again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Next time try the 400's if that will work for your rig.... Thanks for your business.
Jul 18, 2016
The sites are pretty close together. But they are clean. And they patrol the sites so it's very family friendly. Reasonable rates.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks... Our security staff is great and the site cleaners do their best to make your stay enjoyable in a clean site!
Jul 18, 2016
I was not very pleased with our campsite because we felt like you were trying to just squeeze in one more site. There were 8 in tree stumps all over the place and made it difficult to try to find a space to make it all fit. But we made it work. Our neighbors were very loud and offensive our last night and made a bonfire at 3 am that woke us up, we thought the forest of trees around us were burning

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That's not so nice.... As much as we strive to enforce the quiet hour, once in a while someone forgets the golden rule and needs reminding. We have a 24/7 number posted at the office if ever a problem in the park. We are working on wider sites.
Jul 18, 2016
We had a very good time all the staff we encountered were helpful and friendly We will be back

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your business. We know you have a choice in where to camp and we appreciate the opportunity to have you spend part of your summer here.
Jul 18, 2016
Super friendly staff, very clean, always see staff tending to the campground. Only improvement is the cost of the wood bundles-equates to $1 per piece, a bit pricey for wood. Otherwise, we have recommended to others. We are scheduled to come back next month and can't wait!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Awesome. We'll look for your return. Many of our guest come several times throughout the season and it's great to see the familar faces.
Jul 18, 2016
Staff was great. Everyone from Julie a the front desk to the young man (didn't get his name) that happily assisted us in taking care of low tire pressure. Downside was the noise of the highway. Very loud. It wasn't busy while we were there so had plenty of space.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The south end of the park and the 150's are further from the road and popular areas. THanks for staying.
Jul 18, 2016
I thought it was a wonderful place to camp for the whole family

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Whole family fun in a safe, clean and maintained destination park is our goal for our guest.
Jul 17, 2016
The campground had a lot to offer but at a hefty price. $36 for a wristband was way o deprived, especially since tubing was shut down while we were there. Also, $6 to rent a bike was a little expensive and that's what my kids were most looking forward to. The bathrooms could have been cleaner.
Jul 17, 2016
KOA cabins have been our first choice wherever we go and we have been to a lot of them. Hayward was the most disappointing. Campground was pretty with the trees but the upcharged for most everything (jumping pillow) even though their rates were the same as other KOA's who don't charge for extras. Plus 1 and 2 room cabins do not have tv's? Bathrooms need upgrading as well...other KOAS are better.
Jul 17, 2016
Awesome week. Workers very friendly and very accommodating, amenities great, yes it was a perfect week and we will be back next year!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We get so many positive comments from our guest I wouldn't want anyone to think they become common to us. Each comment is appreciated and we listen to all. Thanks for your thoughts.
Jul 17, 2016
2nd year at Kayward! Relaxing and fun for the kids we were a little disappointed that the tubing was closed but that's not the KOA's fault

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

6 to 9 inches of rain with-in a short amount of time..... Great for green grass.... bad for steady tubing! Thanks for understanding. We're now fairly back to normal.
Jul 16, 2016
We have been spending a week every summer at the Hayward KOA for the last 10 years. We always have a great time and plan to return in 2017!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Awesome. Many of our guest return many times throughout the season and most year to year.... We look forward to your return.
Jul 16, 2016
Wonderful staff, we had a great time even in the storms,

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It's funny how when your enjoying yourselves even the "bad" times can be fun.... rain, flooding and all!
Jul 16, 2016
Very clean campground. Very friendly staff.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

THanks. We have a great staff again this year. We'll pass along your comments as they are as involved in the park as we are and appreciate hearing our guest thoughts.
Jul 16, 2016
Our 4 yr. old grandson had a great first time experience at KOA. We stayed busy morning to night playing in the play ground, jumping on the giant pillow, and even walked up the stairs 11 times to do the water slide. Can't wait to do it again.it was very family oriented and very clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Awesome....wow, 11 times. Sounds fun but wow.
Jul 16, 2016
I love that wooded KOA! It is clean & neat all the time. The staff is so very friendly, also.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. We treat others the way we would wish to be treated and we're glad you and your group enjoyed your stay. The golden rule still rules at the Hayward KOA.
Jul 15, 2016
Very tight campsites, 50 amp not every every site and only the pool was free but definitely not heated. Was a well kept place and lots to do for kids but we had no idea everything cost separate. Was disappointing after driving 10 hours and no mention on site.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry your experience wasn't what you expected. Our pool is heated 24/7. Every where our park is advertised it shows the different site options and specifies some of the adminities are extra....
Jul 15, 2016
Staff is always friendly and helpful. Our cabin was short on supplies, and after calling the office they were delivered promplty! The campground is clean and well maintained. A great retreat for families!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very good. We stock our cabins for our average guests stay so if you stay for a longer period we'll be glad to bring you more product. Thanks for staying and come back soon.
Jul 15, 2016
We stayed in cabin KL7, which we have for the past five years. The blinds were really dusty and the curtains had cob webs. Other then that, we had a great stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks so much... I passed your comments to our house keeping lead and a;ll will be taken care of. If even an issue please feel free to alert the office. Thanks again!
Jul 15, 2016
We always have a great time at Hayward KOA. Next time we come we plan on staying for an extra night or two!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Halloween is Labor Day weekend! Very fun!

Tent sites were too close together,esp @ $45/nt, which didn't include the waterslide/tubing/jumpy pillow. There were also loud drunk campers nearby until 3a.m. From rdg other reviews, apparently there is a # posted on the door of the store, but I would've had to walk all the way over there, past the drunk campers to get it. The # should be included in ck in materials, or it should be patrolled.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have security on site. 11 PM quiet hour is enforced. The number is posted at office for any issues. We have an awesome group of campers who frequent our park several times throughout the year. We offer a clean, safe, quiet camping experience which is attested to by the many pages of reviews.
Jul 14, 2016
Lots to do, but they have what we consider some awful sites. Full hook up premium between two cabins so tight we could not get in. But they were very accommodating and allowed us to pick any open site.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm glad we could help. The office is always willing to accomidate anywhere we're able.
Jul 14, 2016
Very family friendly campground. Loved it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very good. Thanks for coming.
