Campground Reviews

Jun 29, 2014
Stayed in a new Deluxe Cabin (KL5). After we got our keys and drove to the cabin we got a warm welcome feel just from the way it looked with the new cabins next to each other. they have really nice and unexpected landscaping with cool yellow chairs. Left early due to a bad canoe experience, long story short, wife and I flipped over in rushing water and lost her wedding ring. But great KOA overall!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad to hear you had a good time at our park and sorry to hear about the loss of the ring. Hopefully your next trip will be better. Thanks.

Great pancake breakfast. Limitations on dog access a bit excessive but dog play area is good.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you enjoyed the time here in Hayward! It takes a huge amount of labor to keep up the park and provide all the activities and we're glad to hear our guests enjoy themselves! You're why we do what we do and we look forward to your next opportunity to visit again. Thanks

My husband and two granddaughters had a wonderful time at KOA in Hayward. This is the third year we have taken the grandchildren and they love it. The only disappointment we had was that there was no hayride on Sunday night. We did make the request and KOA provided a hayride on Monday night. I hope that in the future, even if it is only for one child, they do the nightly hayride. Thanks!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts. We attempt to provide all amenities to the park, as often as possible; however, during the non-peak season, we do have to have some limits as there is a slower business base and we still have to be conscious of our labor. As of this week there is a wagon ride each evening.
Jun 25, 2014
Very nice facility. Employee that checked us in was very nice and accommodating to move our reservation to a quieter area away form all the family /kid activities that was also much closer to the dog park for our 4 dogs to use. Thanks!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. We're happy you (and your dogs) had a good time at our park. If you haven't yet, remember to like us on face book, for up-to date info on activities and events. Thanks again. Have a great summer!

We had a great time. We love coming up to the Hayward KOA. Everything is always nice and clean. There is always a lot for the kids to do. My only request would be to have the ice cream open more often. The kids love it!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. The Ice Cream is open daily, each evening during in season months and weekends during off season months.

Our cabin was farther from all of the hub of things than we wanted to be, but we had a great time. The kids enjoyed the chocolate slip n slide. We will be back next year!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We look forward to your return. Thanks for the comments. We're glad they enjoyed the chocolate weekend....there will be another this August.
Jun 25, 2014
We stay at Hayward KOA during Musky Fest each year. It is truly our family's favorite campground! What makes our stay amazing is the friendly and professional staff, extremely clean campground and pool area and the variety of activities onsite; there is something for every age!!! Also, you can't forget the amazing pancake breakfast! We are already looking forward to next year's trip to Hayward

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Cool! We're glad you all had a great time. We have an award winning pancake and our breakfast staff knows how to make them yummy! Thanks!

Awesome place to stay! Lots to do and extremely clean! Although made our reservations online and they somehow messed up and put our 8-person group into a 4-person cabin the first night. Just received an "I'm sorry". Wish there was better support from the staff on that or a discount or something. Otherwise a great stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad to hear you had an enjoyable stay. Unfortunately, when the reservations are made online, it bypasses our involvement with the reservation and the auto system chooses the site. We're always glad to assist with all reservations in person by calling our offices directly. Visit again. Thank you.

We took our grandson's for a camping experience and stayed in a camping trailer. They loved the activities, pool and their bunks. The only thing I wish they would have had a TV hook up in the trailer for those not so nice days. Also the WiFi was not very good.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have recently finished a brand new wifi throughout the park. Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for you comments.

Hayward KOA has the best staff :)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks! we'll pass along the comments.

I liked my stay. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The restrooms and showers were probably the cleanest I have seen at any campgrounds I have ever stayed at. I would stay again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had the great opportunity of hiring an individual with 23 years experience in Hotel house keeping and she has been doing a great job! We'll let her know your thoughts. Thank you.
Jun 24, 2014
The Hayward KOA is an incredible place with tall pines shading every camp site. The customer service is top notch and each staff makes you feel at home. We thoroughly enjoyed our time from swimming in the pool to tubing to hunting for rocks....would recommend this KOA to any family wanting a relaxing and fun vacation!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. Our best advertisement is recommendations from our current guests and we're glad you had a good time. We appreciate your business and look forward to your return to the park.
Jun 23, 2014
Very clean and comfortable.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. We're glad you found everything to your liking.

I was disappointed each evening when we were warned we need to be quiet because 'we're not afraid to call the sheriff & have you leave' yet we were assured that we weren't being loud. 4 generations & 30+ family members getting together for 1 weekend a year & we were told to save the laughs for daytime. I think we'll save them for a different campground. Everything else was great.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts. The only time a sheriff is usually ever mentioned is when repeated visits to the site is required due to noise. I will check that is actually the case with our night time security. We appreciate your business but we certainly wish for everyone's weekend to be enjoyable.
Jun 23, 2014
We always have a great time! Plan on coming back again next year :)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. Each weekend throughout the season is a different theme. Checkout our web-site at haywardcamping.com for our schedule of events. Thanks again.

Very nice campgroud; however, way to expensive. wE have stay there several times, but I think the charges for the activities are too expensive. I see no reason that there needs to be an extra charge for both the waterslide and jumping pillow. We came with our 4 kids and it just was not even kind of affordable. I tihnk it is ridiculous when our camping was cheaper than being able to do extra things

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We understand about the extra cost! Our labor is very high due to the many employees it requires to run this park and our insurance cost could choke a horse! We do all we can to keep the cost low and offer many weekly themed activities at no cost to our guest. Thanks for your comments.
Jun 23, 2014
Staff were very helpful, the campground was clean, campsites close together, my children had a great time, only problem was when we were trying to leave and they closed the bathroom near the campsites at 1045 instead of the scheduled 1-2-frustrating to have to walk across the campground so my kids could use the facilitites before we left. all in all, great place for kids to stay and play!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your comments. I'll check with house keeping to see about that schedule change.....the restrooms may have just really needed to be cleaned and couldn't wait for later. We're glad everything else was good. Thanks again.
Jun 23, 2014
There are so many things for the kids to do. There was always staff around to help. The bathrooms were cleaned throughout the day. Everyone was friendly.

The grand kids always have a great time whenever we stay at the Hayward KOA. There are so many things to do. They also love the activities that the staff does with all the kids that are camping there. The staff is all very nice and the grounds are clean and very accommodating.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great! We're glad you and your family had an enjoyable time. You're why we're here! Like us on face book if you're not already a friend! See you next time!

The family enjoyed the stay this weekend. Everyone wants to come back and stay again. One dollar miniature golf was great. The kids could play as much as they wanted. We will be back again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We'll look forward to your visit. Thanks for your thoughts. We're glad you all had a good time. We believe our staff makes the difference and we appreciate your business.

Great place for families. Grandsons loved pool,bike riding,games and prizes, movie at night and the TIPI we stayed in!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The Tipi's Were all new to this park just last season and have been a great addition. We're glad you and your family enjoyed your visit. Thanks for your continued business.

There should be recycling bins at the garbage dumpsters. You would think a campground would want to encourage people to preserve nature & recycle.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your comments. There is nowhere in the Hayward area where we are able, as a business, to dispose of plastic or glass. We do recycle the aluminum at a local salvage yard. Thanks.
Jun 23, 2014
We come to the Hayward KOA every year and love it!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. Come back soon. Check out our website at haywardcamping.com for weekly themed activities for the whole family fun!

This was our first time staying at a KOA and our family loved it! There are so many things to do; there is no reason to leave the campground. My son loved the pool and the jumping pillow. We will be coming back for sure. The staff were very nice and helpful. They also made sure everyone followed the campground rules, which was very nice!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Welcome to the Hayward KOA. We strive for and believe our campground to be among the best in the area and always appreciate the feed back we get from our guest. We're glad you enjoyed the park and we look forward to your return. Check out our website for weekly themed events. Thanks again!

I have stayed here before and it is the BEST of any campgrounds I have stayed at with children.Absolutely 5 Stars on everything from the employees to the facilities.I have quit looking for a campground within a reasonable distance from my home to take my grandsons and family for a get-a-way.My needs and wants may not be the same as the next guy but I can't imagine anyone not finding this AAA+

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your comments. I know our staff works very hard to make your visit and our facilities the best they can be. You're why we do what we do. Thanks again.

Rented a elec. and water camper spot. Put up 3 small tents told only 2 are allowed and a fee for the 2nd tent was charged. Our party was Dad, mom, 3 small girls and a teenage neighbor girl. We've camped at this KOA for 10 years and never had this problem b-4. We will NOT be back.

Despite the not so perfect weather we had a great time! Kids enjoyed the hayride,craft activities,dance, pool,and jumping pillow. One thing that could have better was the temperature of the pool. It was the coldest it's ever even since we have been camping there
Jun 17, 2014
Nice clean cabins, and a free breakfast on Fathers Day to all the Dads! Great job, Hayward KOA!
