So glad we could help. The flooding was a mess and we're glad things are back to normal.
Jul 25, 2016
Lots to do, extremely helpful & friendly staff, spotlessly clean ... We will be back to Hayward and look forward to visiting other KOAs!

My kids were yelled at for being on the jumping pillow in swim suits (they were dry - hadn't been in the pool yet!) and the sites are too close together. Feel smothered. Great for smaller kids - I believe our family has outgrown this place and who wants to go somewhere where you get yelled at for doing nothing wrong!?

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Not typical of our park as seen by all the reviews. The pillow can not be used when wet for safty issues, it has nothing to do with swim suits as 99% of our guest are wearing them. We strive hard to make your stay great and most experience a wonderful time. We're here 24/7 if there is ever an issue.
Jul 25, 2016
Great time with our grandkids. Very clean, quiet at night, tons for kids to do and great staff. Will definitely come again for year 3

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

So glad you found everything to your liking. Your why we do what we do and we look forward to your returning to spend part of your summers with us! Thanks.
Jul 25, 2016
Wish that you had more bathrooms and showers. Staff was very friendly!! For the nightly rate, I think the extra activities you ha e to pay for is very high.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do hear this comment and therefore always are looking for ways to cut our cost. We have included up to 4 people in the base price and lowered the mini glof to only $1 per person per game. With all of the huge free activities we provide, our overhead dictates our prices. Thank you.
Jul 25, 2016
This is the first time we have booked a deluxe cabin ...awesome !! There was an issue with ants ..everywhere. So we kept all foods in the fridge and tolerated them elsewhere. KOA offers a variety of activities & there is always Hayward to visit on a rainy day.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have had a huge amount of rain this year and the the ants have been wageing war but I believe we are winning! If ever an issue in the park please notify the office asap. Thanks for the info and come back soon!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. Your why we do what we do. Our guest are the greatest and we're glad you enjoyed your visit to our park.
Jul 25, 2016
Overall I enjoyed my stay but I was not happy that the WIFI did not work. If you advertise you have WIFI than it should work at every site, especially if it says it is available at the site I was in. Site 78

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

WIFI.... What a wonderful invention..... NOT. Sorry for the issues. As we have posted, we are working on up-dateing the equipment and the wifi has not been consistant. Most of the new equipment has been installed and we're working out the kinks.... Thanks for your patience.
Jul 25, 2016
We brought our grandchildren two 10 yr old boys and they had a wonderful time made friends and there was so much to do I had to calm them down because the day wasn't long enough..the staff was friendly and helpful couldn't have had a better stay...thank you we will be back. Bob and Patti

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Bob & Patti. That's what we like to hear and that's why we came into this line of business. Full family fun in a safe, clean and happy environment. Family first! Thanks.
Jul 25, 2016
Ours was a one night say on the road but the park was great. We enjoyed Sunday morning breakfast. It was a nice treat.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The Red Pine breakfast is a favorite and we're proud of our KOA award winning pancakes! We're glad you stopped.
Jul 25, 2016
The facilities here are fantastic, but it's their staff that makes this by far the best KOA we have ever stayed at. Well be back again and again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Exceeding the standards is our standard and we're glad you noticed. Thanks for your business.
Jul 24, 2016
Our deluxe cabin accommodations were great and the staff was very friendly, helpful and responsive to our needs.
Jul 24, 2016
Sites are to close together, not enough adult activities, wood is over priced, staff was excellent
Jul 24, 2016
Tons to do! Kids had a blast! And hayward was a super cute town!
Jul 24, 2016
Pool and playground was great for the kids ages 3-13. Would like to see more grass at campsites and expanded arcade.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're in the process of getting bids to build a cafe and a new arcade building.....
Jul 23, 2016
The outside staff is super friendly.
Jul 23, 2016
Understand that tubing was not available because of the recent storm and the jumping pillow was being replaced. Just think we should have got some money off of the wrist bands because the children under 18 were not able to go tubing or use the jumping pillow. Weren't even offered or told when we purchased them.
Jul 23, 2016
We all had a great time!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Fun, fun for everyone!
Jul 23, 2016
A nice place to stay, staff was very friendly

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. We have a great staff again this year. Thanks for visiting.
Jul 23, 2016
Loved the deluxe patio site! Reasonable price for mini golf. Great staff. Loved the waterslide! We'll be back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We'll be here and getting ready for another great time at the Hayward KOA. Chocolate weekend is next with Halloween coming up fast during Labor Day!
Jul 23, 2016
The staff was friendly and helpful! It was clean well maintained! We loved all the amenities!! This was the kids first camping trip- and they can't wait to go back!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Awesome! We're glad you had a fun time.... Hurry back.
Jul 23, 2016
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.
Jul 22, 2016
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
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.
