This campground is great for kids-the camp sites themselves are way too close-our neighbors were so close- kept us up 2 of the 3 nights we were there- it is clean- bathrooms are clean- and tons of stuff for kids to do-I like that- thank you for having that- now just make your campsites double- it would be fabulous!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have 28 acres here at the park and we're looking to see what we're able to make some larger areas.... a little challenging. Next time try out the east or south sides of the park. Always check the office to see if there are options of different sites. We're here for you.
Jul 07, 2015
All the sites are extremely crammed together and the roads were very narrow making it hard to get out of the pull thru sites. we had to back out of the pull thru site. I felt very claustrophobic at our site. The only thing included with your stay is the pool otherwise the waterslide and everything else has a charge. Hardly any planned activities for the kids. Had to use canoe paddles forthe kayaks

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Check out our web site for weekly themed activities and crafts of which most are no cost.
Jul 07, 2015
Wow, we had the most wonderful time. The staff was absolutely wonderful. The grounds was so clean and so many amazing activities. We loved it and will definitely return. The best place for kids!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Wow back! Thanks for the comments, We have so many new friends coming to the park it has been great. Each week is a different theme so check us out again soon.
Jul 07, 2015
The only disappoint was the extra charges for amenities. KOA is more expensive than other private campgrounds so having to pay for the bouncy pillow in particular is too much.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry.... Our labor could choke a mule and lets not even talk about our insurance! WOW. We work every year and see where we can save you cash. This year... 4 included in the base price! Thanks for your comments.... we're listening!
Jul 07, 2015
The campground was well kept and staff was pretty friendly. Did not like having to buy wristbands for everything when already paying $50+/night.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're always looking for ways to lower cost to our guest.... this year we've included up to 4 individuals in the base price! We lowered the cost of the mini golf last year. We'll continue to see where we're able to save some cash. Thanks for your thoughts.
Jul 07, 2015
The only problem we had was our neighbors the evening of the 4th of july. They were arguing and fighting. We ended up having to call the police on them. Other than that we have never had any issues at your Koa. We love coming there.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thankfully, only one site out of 240 was noisy. Thanks for the help. We are here 24/7 when any problems in the park arise.
Jul 07, 2015
Great campground! Great staff! Great town! Will be back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Hurry back soon and bring your friends. We enjoy hosting family reunions as well!
Jul 07, 2015
Everyone that works there was very helpful and very friendly!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We really appreciate all the labor our staff supplies. We would be lost without them.
Jul 07, 2015
We come almost every Year! There is always something to do and something for the kids to do as well!! Thanks for another Great 4th!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you! We wouldn't be here without you and it is our pleasure having you in our park.
Jul 07, 2015
Extremely friendly staff, very clean, lots of activities, no bugs, very fun family friendly atmosphere. Will definitely go back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks... we'll look for your return.
Jul 07, 2015
Lack of bathrooms. 4th weekend was very busy!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your ideas. We're constantly looking for ways to improve the facilities.
Jul 07, 2015
Hayward KOA is a wonderful place to stay if you have younger kids. There are plenty of activities to keep them busy, plus all the amenities like heated pool, jumping pillow, water slide, playground, river tubing, and more. Highly recommended!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. Our guest make it great!.
Jul 07, 2015
Jul 07, 2015
Loved it! Already planning our next trip back ;)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Jul 07, 2015
Love everything about it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your business. Come back soon.
Jul 07, 2015
Kathy in the office was very helpful making our reservations. Stayed in Cabin and that was great. Fun activities thru out the 4th weekend!!! already made reservations for next year!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great! Next year will be here in a flash and we'll be glad to supply all the fun! Like us on face book for up-to-date info of goings on about the park and up-coming events.... Glow weekend is coming and is awesome! Thanks
Jul 07, 2015
We had a great time at KOA. I would defiantly recommend it to others. I loved all the activities that they have for Kids. The only complaint i would have would be the parking at our actual site. it was hard to park with all the trees but other then that it was nice. I was very impressed and am glad we stayed there. Next time we may check out a cabin since the price is pretty reasonable.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have 24 camping cabins of both 1 or 2 rooms and 10 deluxe cabins with everything but the linens, which afford more room, both inside and out! KL4 KL5 or KL6 are huge popular and installed only last year. Thanks
Jul 07, 2015
Dog friendly great dog park. Clean, quiet, close to lakes, very nice

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. We also are directly on the ATV trails that run for about 50 miles! Right out of the park....
Jul 06, 2015
I have stayed at the Hayward KOA before and had a great experience. This year, I wanted to cancel and was denied after my 75 minute wait on hold put me beyond the 4pm deadline

Jul 06, 2015
Great family park.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

At the end of the day.... it's all about family!
Jul 06, 2015
So fun and family friendly, staff very friendly and helpful, the cabin was great!!! Why do you require 400 characters? I don't have time for that.... Our stay was great the kids loved it too we will be back

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

My responses are restricted to 300 characters and to someone as long winded as I am that's fairly difficult! lol....In short... Glad you had a good time! Thank you.
Jul 06, 2015
I was very impressed with the staff and the owners who were all engaged and working at full speed to meet the needs of the 4th of July weekend campers. Every thing clean and maintained even though the camp was at capacity. Staff was full of humor and all smiles in spite of the obvious work load. As a seasoned camper I was VERY impressed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks you for noticing. It takes an unbelievable amount of labor to "make it all happen" and we appreciate it when that's recognized. Thanks for being a part of our Forth!
Jul 06, 2015
Very friendly staff. Very clean. lots of things for kids to do.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Kid friendly themed weekends and events. This week...Western weekend with Christmas in July right around the corner. Another chocolate weekend is coming soon!
Jul 06, 2015
A perfect place to bring our family! Lots of activities for everyone--especially the kids. We appreciate the cleanliness of the campground and the great people running it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. That's why we bought this park.... to create a fun place for families to make great memories. Come back and visit with us again soon.
Jul 06, 2015
Lots of stuff to do. Sites are smaller than I would've liked

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts.
Jul 06, 2015
Very clean campground and lots for kids to do! Very pushy security guards! Felt like they were constantly looking for something to nit pick about. Really long wait for tubing down river and rally long wait approx 45 mins to get picked up.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the wait time.... we're working on that.... A steady security staff is required in a park of this capacity and we appreciate your understanding. This is a family park and we're here to ensure, not only everyones enjoyment.... but their safety and comfort as well.
Jul 06, 2015
Best Camping Trip Ever! Camping Cabin was great for our family of four. The 2year old and 7 year old were always busy with the fun activities planned. Our first KOA trip will not be our last!! Already booked for next year

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have locked in this year prices for next year to our returning guest that make their next stays reservations....Thanks!
Jul 06, 2015
Fun kampground with lots to do for my kids. The only drawback was the close proximity to the road. I wonder if a spot further back in the kampground would block that noise.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yes. the 160's are popular. Always check with the front desk and see if we can assist in making your stay more comfortable! We here to serve!
Jul 06, 2015
We enjoyed the shady camping site, pool, water slide and the staff was super helpful and friendly! Thank you!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you enjoy yourselves and some of the amenities here in the park. Tubing or canoeing is a favorite!
Jul 06, 2015
Needs more bathroom facilities. Staff was great, but there were not enough staff in the office compared to the number of people staying.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are seeing how we can adjust the office and what goes on there to assist in the service of our guest. Thanks for the thoughts.
Jul 06, 2015
This is the place to keep your kids occupied! Lots of activities and the pool is one of the best there is. Sites are pretty close quarters but you manage.. Overall good place to hang out!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

80,000 gallon pool. 320 feet water slide! Fun, fun, fun.
Jul 06, 2015
Our camp site was a little tight for our camper but camp ground was kept clean and everyone working there always said hi and smiled , we will be back

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. We appreciate your coming to visit us.
Jul 06, 2015
The campground is very nice. Friendly and helpful people working there! The restrooms were well maintained and clean. The pool could use some cleaning, but otherwise it was nice. The ice cream stand should be open longer during the afternoon. If you are tenting I would recommend something in the back of the campground. Our group were in sites 42, 82 and 83 and the noise from HWY 63 was crazy.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the thoughts.
Jul 06, 2015
Nice campground. Very nice staff! Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. The website or brochure that is handed out could be a little more detailed, listing prices and all amenities. We would have played mini golf a couple more times had we known it was only $1 but we didn't play until our last day and we certainly would of used the traveling dump service to dump our trailer.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The honey wagon runs every day at 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM for a minimal charge. Yep the Mini golf is only $1 per person per game.
Jul 06, 2015
Thank you for a great weekend! Our family was extremely impressed with the facility and the activities you had available for us. We played bingo, went swimming,and enjoyed campfires. Overall, it was a fun family adventure.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Friday night free s'mores is popular as well. Thanks for coming to the Hayward KOA. We know you have a choice in where you camp and we appreciate your staying with us. We're glad you all enjoyed your time here in our park!
Jul 06, 2015
Always seemed to be people around to help. Lots of activities that the kids like to do.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We enjoy making your stay great!
Jul 05, 2015
Very noisey till 2:30 AM, not patroled for quiet time

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts.... we have security on staff for not patrols. As always if there is ever an issue we have a telephone number posted for after hour problems and please let the office know if we can assist in any areas of concern.
Jul 05, 2015
It is a wonderful place, especially for children. When I go camping I prefer more seclusion, trees and campsites not all in a row. That was my only issue. Otherwise wonderful place!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The 400 might work well for you. Thanks
Jul 05, 2015
prices should be posted on the wall for things that aren't included in your daily camp price. The campsites were a little tight. Otherwise, friendly staff and clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks.... good thoughts.
Jul 05, 2015
Always have a great time when we camp there. Been camping there for the last 5 years

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Come on back... We appreciate your business and your choosing the Hayward KOA for your camping enjoyment.
Jul 04, 2015
Loved most of it. Think rewording cabin description is NEEDED! 2 sets of bunk beds- there's 1 set of bunk beds. 2 sets would be 4 beds. (IMO)also in cabin description- Refrigerator and below it mini fridge. I brought $400.00 worth of food. It would have been great to know it's a one or the other. I walked in to see a mini fridge....

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have limited wording available in the description areas of the web-site and we have to fit in what we're able.... calling and getting more info when making reservations is always suggested. Thanks for your thoughts.
Jul 04, 2015
Very friendly and helpful staff

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. We'll pass along your comments. Our staff works hard to make your stay great and we're glad you all enjoyed your stay!
