Campground Reviews

Jun 25, 2015
Had a great time. I unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate which led to a power outage at the campground. But other than that we had a blast. The kids are already asking when we can go back.

Come on back.... hope to see you soon!

It was a nice place & friendly staff. Had great activities for the kids. The only thing I was not happy with was that the prices for the water slide, jumping pillow, bikes. you needed to buy wristband for the water slide & jumping pillow each day and for a family with more than one kid it gets expensive. Maybe consider a weekend rate (or all stay)for unlimited play the whole time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do have the 7 day "pink" band.... unlimited waterslide and tubing for $36.00....

Grounds and restrooms were clean. Staff was very friendly. Could have been more helpful in guiding us around the area for things to do and see in Hayward. Disappointed that everything was an extra cost...water slide, mini golf, ...even the jumping pillow!

We have many brochures and booklets in the office/general store for area attractions.

It was a great stay. The cabin was nice. It was supposed to sleep 8, but the hide-a-bed couch that pulled out didn't have a real mattress, it had a blow up mattress, but nothing to blow it up with. :( price was pretty expensive as well. Loved the cleanliness of the cabin and the friendliness of the staff. Please adjust the issue of how to fill up the air mattress for future campers. Thank you.

The pump is in the drawer located in the front of the sofa.... we'll pass along your comment to our staff to ensure everyone knows!. Thank you

the park is nice and clean with lots to do. camp sites are kinda close together, I would recommend going with others and getting two sites. it is all kid oriented. the playground was awesome and the kids loved it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We appreciate it. Thanks

Everything was good. My only two complaints are; their was limited grass areas near the pull thru sites to bring your pet to go to the bathroom. The dog park is halfway across the park and much to inconvienent (especially in the rain). Also, the beans they used for the candy bar bingo are really impractical-little kids wiggling and moving/bumping tables=beans shifting and moving!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great thoughts, Thank you! We do have a pet walk on the opposite side of the park from the pet play ground for your convenience.

It was nice but way too expensive for a tent site. Probably will look for someplace less expensive. We have been coming here for many years on fathers day and keeps raising price.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm not sure what occurred...but kids stayed free this Fathers Day weekend and there has been no price increase for the last two years... We constantly look for areas where we can lower cost such as last year mini golf lowered to $1.00 from $3.00 and this year all sites based on 4 guest up from two.
Jun 22, 2015
This is by far, the nicest and cleanest KOA I have been in! :-)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We work hard so you and your guest have a great Hayward KOA time!!!
Jun 22, 2015
We had a great time there. My family love it . Most definitely we would go back

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great... see you soon.
Jun 22, 2015
We had a great time during our stay at Hayword KOA. Our 3 year old daughter was completely entertained and the staff was very friendly. If we are ever back in the area, we will stay at Hayword KOA! Thank you.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you and your daughter all enjoyed your stay. Thanks for your business.
Jun 22, 2015
Even with rain storms and a camp wide power and water outage the stay was fantastic!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry.... Excel blew a transformer and part of the park was down for a couple hours.... literally, just as I plugged in a generator... the power was restored... Come back soon.
Jun 22, 2015
We always enjoy our stay but wish that jumping pillow was free or that a wristband would be good for the length of your stay. We hear a lot of complaints regarding this.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are always looking for ways to lower the cost here at the park. Thanks for your input.
Jun 22, 2015
Pro's Incredibly clean and nice facilities. Fun for the kids! Unfortunately, the sites are super small and it seems like the owner has the staff afraid to make any decisions on their own and they must follow all rules to a T, regardless of circumstances.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

In the spring of the year a majority of our staff is new and it is our ONLY opportunity to train, Therefore I am very involved in the operation of the park....in all circumstances.
Jun 22, 2015
This was our second time staying here and it was as nice as always. Everyone working there is so friendly and the campground is very well kept!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks so much. Come back soon.
Jun 22, 2015

After arriving on Friday evening, around 630 7ish,waterside was already closed. was definitely weather permitting & light out. On Sat am was rainy so did not send the kids(5yrs old) but it stopped @ 330. they did not want to do the slip n slide so we went to waterside only to find it closed again. Sign said to open after slip n slide. Why? We pay extra for waterside so why not open as much as poss

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Due to the HUGE popularity of the chocolate slip 'n slide, it is necessary to pull staff from different areas of the operation for the one hour, to help run the activity. The water slide is always very quite during that time. This occurs two times out of the year. Thanks
Jun 21, 2015
Best KOA around. We come here every year and it's always a great time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Come back soon. We appreciate you.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

A very kid friendly park.
Jun 20, 2015
Very well maintained park & very overpriced.....gravel or concert pads would be nice....at the least

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

WE just finished installing many additional loads of road gravel. Come back soon.
Jun 20, 2015
Very friendly staff, and atmosphere. Everything was very clean and neat. Very family oriented.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Families matter most. We're glad you enjoyed yourselves.
Jun 19, 2015
Been going there for 20 years or so. Disappointed my two young grandsons couldn't get on the hayride though.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have a wagon ride every night of the week. I'm not sure as to the circumstances why anyone would have been missed.... for our new guest... be sure to listen for the train whistle as that singles the beginning of the wagon ride. All aboard!!
Jun 18, 2015
always have a good time when staying at hayward.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We visited friends in the area, so were not at the camp much, but it is a very nice park. Friendly helpful staff.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. Come again when your in the area.

LOVEE LOVE LOVE!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great! Hurry back
Jun 18, 2015
It was great! The electric on the mini golf was broken and it didn't seem like they were in any hurry to fix it, which was disappointing. The themed weekend was washed out by rain but the staff tried their best. The playground is AMAZING and although I didn't personally go into the pool I was told that it is very nice. The tent sites were cramped but overall it's a wonderful family campground!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks.... We have two motors not operating in the mini golf which had already been ordered... they appear to be on a wagon train somewhere in Utah!.... Thanks
Jun 18, 2015
We had a site that was very small & had a hard time getting out when it was time to leave

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

If there is ever an issue in the park, please check with he front desk and we will assist where we're able. Thanks
Jun 17, 2015
Despite the fact that we didn't get to stay as long as we planned to, we enjoyed the campsite. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Come back when you can! Thanks.
Jun 17, 2015
It was a lot of fun. The kids loved it. Only problem we had was a lot of talking and yelling going on with people by us between midnight and 1 a.m If we are ever in the area again we would definitely stay there

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have security here in the park and an after hours telephone number posted at the office should there ever be a problem in the park. Quite hour is 11:00 PM and it's important that all guest respect this policy. Thanks for your comments!

The onsite prices were too high. It was very clean! The staff was very friendly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Last year we were able to lower the mini golf cost and this year we have included up to 4 guest per site into the base site cost. Each year we're attempting to lower cost to yourselves as we're able. Thanks for your thoughts.
Jun 16, 2015
Vicki, who checked us in was very friendly and accommodating. We requested to be by family members and when we weren't, she worked with us to get us as close as she could. She was AWESOME! The bathrooms were nice and clean, showers were HOT with good water pressure. The kids had a BLAST with all the weekend activities. Thanks

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Vicki....we are fortunate to have been able and get her and her husband Eric (maintenance) to return for a forth year and we're glad she could help you out. Thanks!
Jun 16, 2015

It was a kid heaven! We all loved it, despite that it rained most of Saturday. The staff was awesome and SOOOO friendly! LOVED LOVED LOVED the guys who helped us with the canoe! So awesome!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

They are both new to the park this year and their both gems! We're glad you enjoyed yourselves.
Jun 16, 2015
Thanks for the Country Carnival! Even in the rain we had so much fun dancing, watching the clown, and viewing the movie. And thanks especially for the cabin upgrade from the teepee. I loved the teepee but my family is more for comfort than adventure! I was out-voted! But the cabin was lovely, dry and comfortable during a rather soggy weekend. Your generosity was well-appreciated!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

When we and our partners wanted to purchase this park, one of our desires was to conduct business with integrity and treat others as we wish to be treated. Your enjoyment is our goal and we're glad you and your family had a fun stay....rain and all. I'm glad we were able to accommodate. Thank you.
Jun 16, 2015
Had fun, kids loved it. Will be back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We look for your return.... hurry back and bring your friends!

Lots of fun activities for the kids. Super friendly helpful staff. I told them it was my parents 50th anniversary that we were there celebrating and they remembered the next day when we were up getting ice cream and gave them theirs for free. What a nice personal touch to remember them when the campground was full.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Fantastic! Happy 50th! Glad you all had a good time. We started a new program this year. Grip 'n Grin! Two of our team members to just ride around and make folks feel welcome and it seems to be a success! We'll pass along your comments. Thanks
Jun 15, 2015
This place is great for the kids with lots of activities, DJ music,great pool and always clean. Lots of returning staff from year to year for familiar friendly faces!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our labor cost could choke a mule!..... sorry

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

New additional wifi as of yesterday....

Friendly and helpful staff. Only glitch was a $10 per night upcharge for having two tents instead of one, but other than that really enjoyed the employees and their suggestions.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the "second unit" nightly charge.... it's a necessary evil! We're glad the staff was helpful. Thanks for your business.
Jun 15, 2015
Very neat, clean, family friendly campground. Kids loved it - would recommend to anyone looking for a family campground

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comments.
Jun 15, 2015
Honestly, we chose this KOA because it's a convenient meeting point for us with relatives from northern Minnesota. It's and annual get-together. We used few of the fine amenities, although we did enjoy the s'mores on Friday.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Free s'mores every Friday night.... come and enjoy!
Jun 15, 2015
This was the best place we have stayed so far! we felt just like family, my little girl got heat exhaustion and the staff members here took care of her and helped us out a lot. thank you to all the wonderful staff who made our stay amazing!

We had a great stay. All except the huge tree stumps in the middle of our site that we kept tripping over. I fell once.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks! I looked up your site number and the stump is no more! If there is ever in issue please let us know asap....
