Water slide leaked water which ran through our site making it a muddy mess. I complained but they were full, so couldn't change sites. I put a bucket up there to catch the water and emptied it every hour which helped, but got sick of it and left early after 2 days. We have stayed at this KOA previously and if you get a good site, it is great.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We were unable to repair the leak in the slide due to it's continued use but the seams have all now been caulked and all is good to go. Thanks for visiting and we'll look forward to your return. We are always glad to assist where able.

The campground was fun and family orientated. The cost of using the slide for kids is outrageous. It should be one fee for the length of stay or a weekly fee. That could be the only determining factor in us not returning.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have the "pink" band which is only $36.00 per person for 7 days of unlimited waterslide and tubing....

For as busy as it was this KOA did a great job. Kids here, kids there, kids everywhere. If you are looking for a quiet northwoods getaway this might not be the place but it is clean, the owners are nice and it was as quiet as possible..little tight on the spaces but our 31' travel trailer fit just fine.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The Autumn is a great time to stay....quieter with so many fall colors. It's beautiful in the North woods. Come back soon.

Our family had a great time. The canoe trip down the river was a highlight and the shuttle driver was very informative and friendly. We met another family there that had stayed in KOAs across Canada and USA and they said the Hayward site was the best! Thanks for a fun stay

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We hear that many times and appreciate the comments. We are glad you enjoyed yourselves and hope you have the time to visit us again.

This was our first time at the Hayward KOA, we are new to this whole RV world. We only had 1 nite reservation but we're able to get in the next night due to a cancellation in a different site. My kids enjoyed the campground and the pool. It was Halloween themed weekend so we had fun handing out candy to all the trick or treaters! We booked again for lumberjack world championships in 2016!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That's another fun weekend. Each week is a different theme. We're glad you all enjoyed the Halloween. All themed weekend run from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend. Come back soon.

Hayward KOA has always been our kids' favorite campground, and us "grown-ups" have a pretty fun time too!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Whole family fun the North woods.... Thanks for visiting!

Thank you.

We love the activities that are available at the camp grounds, but sadly noted how expensive it has become and will look for an alternative camping site next year. We also talked to a couple of the workers that said that their conditions were not so good any more, they were unhappy.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We've not had any price increases at all in the last 2 years. We lowered the price of the mini golf last year and this year included up to 4 guest per site in the basic price of the sites.

We had a fantastic weekend with our granddaughter at the KOA in Hayward. There were so many activities to participate in or to do on your own you couldn't possibly be bored! We especially liked games in the field, dancing, swimming and watching A movie on the big screen outside. The highlight though was sleeping in a Tipi!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We so glad you all enjoyed your stay here at the park. Thanks for visiting and we hope to see you again next season!

We had an amazing time. So relaxing. Our children love to come to KOA. For the most part the employees are so friendly. Thank you for the good time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for coming and return when you can. We work hard to make you stay great and we're glad when that labor pays off with folks having a good time.

We are not used to camping that close with others, but we did meet some new friends. Over all great for the kids!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Camping is a great way to meet like minded individuals.... Thanks for spending some time with us.

Mainly good. Bathroom unit not always clean/ showers could use an update.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. The South shower house is scheduled for a renovation next Spring!

We had a great time, the grandkids loved the "pirate ship" park as well as the waterslide, pool and bounce bubble. The hayride was a big hit as well. The park was very well kept, everything clean and in tip top shape. If I have to complain about something it would be that there wasn't enough help in the office/snack shop,(always a line) but everyone was very friendly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you all had a fun time..... The office as well as the Red Pine do not have a lot of space and that has limited us to the amount of staff we can fit into those areas.... We are looking into what can be done for both locations to expedite the line... Thanks.
Sep 01, 2015
Really nice campground, lots for the kids to do. My ONLY complaints were that most of the kid activities (slide, jumping pillow, bikes, mini golf) all were extra & the camp sites have no privacy. The camp ground is very clean though.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your comments.

This was our second year staying at the Hayward KOA and it was another fantastic visit. Very friendly and attentive staff, nice accommodations and plenty of fun for the kids!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for returning and we're thrilled you have a fun time at our park. Hope to see you again soon.... after Labor Day, it's a great time to rest up and enjoy the Autumn colors in the North woods.

Fun family place to stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great! Come back for some more fun in the sun! Halloween will be Labor Day weekend.... Haunted house, trick/treating, custom contest, site decorating contest. Bring you décor and costumes and have a blast.
Aug 31, 2015
Activities were good for the kids. The charges were pretty rediculous. One tent per campsite is crazy with a large family. We paid just about as much as a hotel after paying tent fees and person fees. I would have liked to know that before hand.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We include up to 4 guest per site in the basic cost. We have volley ball, basket ball, bean bag toss, tether ball, horse shoes pits, swimming pool, games, activities, crafts, themed weekends, 2 play grounds, wagon rides and Friday night s'mores All FREE.
Aug 31, 2015
Everything was perfect. Kids had a blast with everything! I loved how clean everything was and how friendly everyone was.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That's the Hayward KOA. Thanks for noticing and come back soon. We're glad you enjoyed yourselves.

The first night we dealt with drunk people arguing and swearing at 1045pm. We woke up and found someone stole our firewood. We complained to the office. We moved to a new site. This time kids we screaming at the playground at 1100pm. We complained and a worker came to deal with it. He then came by our site and basically announced we were the ones complaining. We will never stay again after 7 yrs.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The quiet hour is 11:00 PM..... Sorry about the wood, we replaced it at no cost. We moved you to another site attempting to accommodate. After 7 years of great service, (or you would not have been returning)....your going elsewhere??? Come again and have some fun just like the last 6 years!
Aug 31, 2015
Very clean, with plenty of activities.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks, Come again. Check out our new YouTube videos posted by recent guest!
Aug 31, 2015
There was a lot of fun activities for the kids and maintenance was very helpful when we had an electrical issue. The pool was nice and facilities were clean. However, we felt the stress of paying for each activity individually and felt like money was flying out of our pockets. We thought the waterslide could be cheaper, and thought there should be a more reasonably priced all inclusive wristban

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comments..... We consider all possibilities.

Very nice staff!!! Very clean bathrooms!!

Kudos house keeping.... Thanks for the comments.
Aug 27, 2015
Our grand daughter had a good time and didn't mind swimming in the cool temp. She most liked jumping on the pillow. I have a BS degree in Forest and worked for the US Forestry dept some time ago. I was very concerned the nite the wind blew. looking up at the nice Red Pine all I could focus on was the broken limbs, or Widow Makers. You should start a program to trim the dead branches abt 200/year

Are you interested in a job?....
Aug 27, 2015
Stayed in cabin very clean seemed new although rather expensive we will opt for alternative next time so we will have plenty for all the charges for everything else they offer. Kids had a great time just bring plenty of cash or credit so all are satisfied.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying. We're glad the kids had fun...
Aug 26, 2015
Everything about this KOA was awesome. Plenty of stuff to do for the kids. The only thing that was a bummer for is was the site itself. When we booked the site, we explained that we were going to be setting up two tents. The site we were given barely had room for one tent, unless it was a small two person tent. There were gaps in the trees big enough for the tent, but the stumps were still there.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

If there is ever an issue, please see the office and we'll do all able to accommodate your needs. Thanks for visiting.
Aug 26, 2015

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Each week is a different theme and we enjoy putting activities together that gets the guest involved and every one having a fun time. Halloween is coming Labor Day weekend!
Aug 26, 2015
Everything about this campground is great. The facilities and environment were really nice, the people were very pleasant, and their were many things for the children to do.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This is a family park and our guest make it great! Thanks for visiting.
Aug 25, 2015
The camp is kept clean and the staff is helpful. I was not prepared for the significant added costs. What we had to pay for vs. what we got for it was not worth a second visit for us.
Aug 25, 2015
OK experience. Extremely busy and very little private space. Ladies in office were very short, which I get w all the unsupervised kids running around. At 10:30am team was cleaning our site...check out is 11. Rude! Probably will stay elsewhere next time in Hayward. Staff around campground very polite and welcoming.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your words. We appreciate everyones comments as it helps us to continue to improve and it's your enjoyment we work hard to ensure.
Aug 25, 2015
All was great but was noisy and partying until after midnight.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad to hear all was great. Unfortunately once in a while a few folks need reminding that the 11:00 PM quiet hour really means.... please be quieter after 11:00 PM. Mutual respect goes a long way.
Aug 25, 2015
Was our 2nd time camping there. Will return in the future:)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your continued business. Come back soon.
Aug 25, 2015
Fabulous campground. Staff were friendly and happy. The pool is decent size. The water slide (which costs extra) was great. Playground is probably one of the nicer ones. Tubing was sooo much fun. The only negative..the sites are small

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great! Thanks for coming. A 9 feet deep, 80,000 gallon pool with a 320 ft waterslide is not the typical camp ground. We're glad you enjoyed yourselves!
Aug 25, 2015
Had a great campsite. Pool was warm. Wonderful playground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you had a fun time. Come back soon.
