Pros: Owner from Denver was very nice. Walked over to our site to inform us about the approaching storm. Cons: Initial check in employee was not friendly or helpful. Bathrooms were in very poor condition - Cold water in sink did not work Extremely crowded space - everyone is packed so close together. It made parking very difficult

The camp ground is keep very clear and quite at night. It is very family friendly.

Love this place, been camping there for years. This year we did not bring our ATV's so we were looking for a schedule of activities for the kids. As of Friday night they had nothing so the kids missed "Candy Bar" bingo and this was something they really looked forward too. We arrived on Friday so I thought a schedule would be made available to plan ahead. Other than that we had a great weekend.

We appreciate your business. We always have smores on Friday evening at the community fire. Wagon rides each night, Saturday evening movie and a DJ dance with games all at no cost. We usually have additional activities as well on Saturday afternoon. This coming week-end is pirate week-end. Arrrrr

A great campground for families! Clean, friendly, and nice campsites. We enjoyed our stay and liked the tall pines keeping us cozy in our campsite - very pretty woodsy campground.

We had a great time as usual. We enjoy the energy of the campground. very family oriented and lots to do. the only drawback is the expense. It is not an inexpensive campground to stay at. you pay a premium to stay and most things but the pool have an additional cost. The staff we met were great and the grounds are kept very nice.

Thank you for your thoughts.

What will give you 5 stars and a 10 rating are 2 small items. You need to put an additional sign just past the group camping sites telling them for a second time that they still need to go straight ahead and to the right. So many people still turn into the group site and go thru the wood boiler area. Second,first year dumping the morning pool water out and into the group camp sites. Why? All muddy

Our first time at a KOA and it was GREAT... The pool area was GREAT, we had your breakfast and is was GREAT. I am using the GREAT word because we truly enjoyed our first time a t a KOA and we would do it again. Your staff was so helpful and pleasant. The campsite was clean and your shower and bathroom facilities were very clean.. Thanks for making our stay GREAT :) The Larson family Zion Ill.

Impressed by helpfulness of staff. Bit dissappointed as were told when booked deluxe cabin would be an oven and TV. It was an adjustment to rework the meals planned for an oven. Also suggest you put information sheet regarding the location of the air mattress pump,was too late to call the office first night when set up bed, hot water did not last long enough to even do our dishes but managed
Jul 28, 2014
I enjoyed the stay and the park was clean and quiet . The one thing is I was surprised that mini golf, jumping pillow were not included in the camping fee. That was a first. I also missed a snack shop where you can get cones or snack food except at the specific times . Stay was ok
Jul 28, 2014
Thank you for all your KOA staff members efforts toward making this a great Kamping location.

Thank you for your business. Come again soon.

Over all this was a great experience. The only suggestion I have is that a second shuttle for tubing needs to be added. After tubing in the sun for 1 1/2 hrs we waited for over an hour in the sun to be picked up cause there was a large group ahead of us. No shade, potties, or cell phones if an emergency. The driver worked as fast as he could.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts. We're glad you enjoyed yourselves....we'll look into the shuttle situation.
Jul 28, 2014
We love coming to Hayward KOA. It doesn't matter what age you are you'll have a great time tubing swimming and having ice cream and not to mention the wonderful people you meet..

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you had a good time! We work hard so we can provide whole family fun in the sun. Hurry back. Thanks for your thoughts.

This is a noisy campground during the day--kids shooting cap guns and zooming around on bicycles. Evening quiet hours were followed. Not all burners in the kitchen worked. The bathrooms seemed especially dirty this time and the showers were cold.

Bathrooms very clean, nice free showers, would be nice if wristband included golf & bikes, staff should not be allowed to have phones while supervising water slide

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your comments.
Jul 27, 2014
There is a plenty to do for kids of all ages, but plan on bringing along some extra cash to cover additional costs. Great deal if you are staying multiple days to get the bundled package. Highly recommend the Sat. Morning breakfast as it was reasonably priced and super convenient. We had an enjoyable stay and will definitely be back again!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great!! We'll look for your return. When you check in...ask for the owners...we would love to meet you! Thanks for staying with us.

We had a great time watching the kids play, eating the breakfast and ice cream. The site was great. Love coming here. Marge

Great! We're excited you and your family had a good time. Check out our website for weekly themed events! Thanks.

Everything was well maintained and clean. Our check in/out went smoothly. We were VERY DISAPPOINTED in the general customer service for everything else. We would have spent a TON of money in the little store, but EVERY time we wanted to buy something (food item or wristband) it was a tremendously long wait. So long in fact our ice cream bars melted before we got to pay! It was a JOKE!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you enjoyed your time here and seemed to enjoy the park as a campground. This is a very busy park and sometimes the general store backs up, however, there are plans for building a café, which would house most food/snack items, to assist in moving some of the business out of the office.
Jul 25, 2014
We kept changing our leave date and the park was extremely accommodating in helping us to stay in our spot. We felt fortunate to find such a great group of folks for our 10 day stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you had the opportunity to stay with us and we're especially glad all was good for your ten day stay. Come again soon!
Jul 25, 2014
This campground is great. So many things to entertain kids and the pool and waterslide are fantastic!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. We attempt to treat our guests the way we ourselves would wish to be treated and we're very glad you found everything great at the Hayward KOA! Check out our website for weekly themed activities and remember to like us on facebook for up-to-date info! Thanks

Our family of 12 stayed for 2 nights. We had two cabins and a tent. Cabins were clean and tent site was also neat and clean. We used the pool,mini golf,little bikes,waterslide and the kamping kitchen. Everything was very well taken care of, nice and clean. The rest rooms and showers were also. Employees were very friendly and helpful. We will hopefully stay again sometime soon.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're thankful for your comments. We'll pass them along to our staff. Thanks.

would have given 5 stars except for bathrooms and showers were a bit dirty and smelly

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your comments....the bathrooms are a challenge but we'll keep working on them. Visit again soon.

I had a GREAT time we stayed in a small cabin it was very clean - loved the swing! I only used the pool & it was great! I was there with 8 of my siblings, we all got a cabin, I wish you offered a family/group discount and that we could have been closer together.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Many of our guests make their reservations up to a year in advance, in order to all be close together when camping...our office staff would be glad to assist you with your future camping needs. Thank you and come again soon.

Had a great time aside from my husbands cell phone being stolen from the men's bathroom.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the the phone, but glad you enjoyed the time here at our park. Thanks.
Jul 22, 2014
The campground was very nice. It offered many activities. We will never rent a tipi again. We had the worst night ever.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed the campground. Sorry you weren't fond of the tipi. Our new lodges have all the critter comforts which might work a little better. Thanks.
Jul 22, 2014
The play area for children is great. The camping area was a little tight and close. Restrooms were very clean that was a plus.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you had a fun time and that all was to your liking. Visit again soon. Thanks for your business.
Jul 22, 2014
It was absolutely wonderful and the weather was great. The workers were friendly and helpful. We will return again next year. We always enjoy our trip to Hayward KOA and I don't think we ever really have a problem except in getting a handicap cabin for my mother who is in a wheelchair. We stayed in a Teepee for the first time and that was nice. Hope to get cabins for next year keeping our fingers.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great! We're glad you had a good time and we'll be glad to assist you with that cabin reservation! Glad you enjoyed the tipi...so many of our guests have never had the opportunity to stay in one and most really enjoy the experience. Thanks.

Very kid oriented, lots to keep them busy!

We try and have fun for everyone and we're glad you had a good time! Thanks.

Just mom and dad get away weekend, so we didn't utilize all there was to do. Will bring kids back next time. Very nice bathrooms and like the shaded area in pines. Will be back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great. We look forward to your return. Each weekend throughout the season has a different theme...Chocolate weekend is very popular! Come again soon. We appreciate your business.

Mr Security felt it was necessary to harass us by saying we were 'extremely loud' and would call the sheriff. We were not loud, nor did they have any complaints about our group. It's just their policy to be rude and not want anyone to be out around the campfire after 11:00 pm as their way to enforce quiet time. We will not be going back to Hayward KOA. See the same comments from other reviews.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry....our policy is for a family friendly, kid friendly, safe, clean, fun packed campground that becomes quiet at night, for the enjoyment of all our guests. Thank you.
