Cabin Reviews

Oct 03, 2013
It's been several years since we were first @ this KOA and we're so glad we could come back. We came w/another couple & they upgraded us @ no charge to a 2 rm Kabin because they had moved our kabin. Staff put a table & chairs in game room so we could play cards during the rainstorm. Great hospitality.

We're so glad you returned to our campground and that you enjoyed your time there. We hope to see you again in the 2014 season.

We reserved a one room cabin for three nights. KOA was in the process of moving some of those cabins, so they gave us a two room cabin for the same cost. This was a very nice gesture and greatly appreciated. We had a wonderful time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed the extra room. As available, we're planning on continuing the practice of upgrading, as able. Come back next year and check out the new deluxe lodges we put in, in place of the cabins!

Very clean and comfortable Kabin, loved the Kamping Kitchen and its proximity, loved the proximity of bathrooms and their cleanliness. Super friendly staff. Looking forward to my next stay!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the comments. It actually is an unbelievable amount of labor running a campground and when our efforts are recognized it is appreciated. We'll pass this along to our staff.

The people were friendly. I feel the sites were too close together.The bathrooms/showers could use more heat when it's cold out.They should have some full hook-up pull thru sites away from play area.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts. We're in the process of seeing what we can do to create better/larger sites. Remodeled shower house in 2014! Check out our web sites for new things to come! See you in 2014.

The cabin should have been aired out. It smelled musty.

Our cabin was very clean. The campgrounds were also clean. Kids had a great time riding around the campgrounds. Reserved my cabin for same weekend next year.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We look forward to seeing you again! Check out our new deluxe lodges as well! See you in 2014.

We have stayed here for years, and will do so for years to come. The staff is incredible. They clearly enjoy their work, and are great hosts! Thank you Hayward KOA staff!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your continued support. We work hard to make your stay great and we'll be glad when the 2014 season starts. Ask for us when you return, we would like to meet you in person. Tony/Rosie

The ONLY thing that I didn't like was in the kabin having the bunk beds in the 1st room. The reason we love the kabins is because of the two rooms and being able to have the kids to bed and close the door and still be up and able to go in and out of the kabin. Other than that EVERY thing else was PERFECT!! We already made our reservations for next year. Great planned activities for the kids.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. We'll look into the bunk bed situation. New lodges are coming 2014! Come visit us again.

This was a birthday weekend for my young son. He and his friends were very excited to be camping and most excited to swim in the pool, play on the slide, and night glow-in-the-dark golf as outlined on both the KOA website and the Hayward camping website, which state these activities are available through October. On arrival we discovered the pool and slide were closed for the season. No golf also.
Sep 09, 2013
The campground had drained the pool, didn't tell any campers ahead of time. Propane grill was out of gas. Deluxe cabin was very clean and nice.
Sep 04, 2013
We had a wondeful time! Love the campground and all the activities/things to do. Only suggestion is to move the smokers away from the office doorway/swimming pool entrance. We have allergies and had to wait several times to pass by that area! Also, we "escape" to camping for the fresh air!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Smoking in that area is constant work. We have placed "no Smoking" signage and created a smoking area away from the pool etc. Thanks for the thoughts. We're looking forward to 2014!

We have stayed at the KOA in Hayward, WI for several years over Labor Day weekend (about 10 sites booked for our family). This was by far the worst Customer Service we have ever received there. We did book again for next year but we did have a discussion if we should, we are going to try it one more year to see if we get the same experience.
Sep 03, 2013
The only problem I have is there is not enough parking for the Cabins. I had one for the weekend and there was barely any room for one vehicle to park and not block any part of the road.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are aware of the parking and we're working hard to limit the amount of guests staying per site, in order to allow our regular paying guests enough room for their vehicles. Glad you had a nice visit.

We stayed in a clean, comfortable cabin. The pool was refreshing and fun. Tubing was a blast and afordable. The fire ring was not up to par and we didn't like being next to the dumpsters due to the smell but the employee's were willing to bring us a fire ring that worked great. The staff was friendly and helpful.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the comments. ALL new fire rings are on our list of improvements. Glad the staff helped you out. See us in 2014

Disappointed. Water slide not open during week, no special activities for kids during week, Not the friendly feeling like the staff that use to be there. Our cabin was great except the bunk room door was out of adjustment, and the floor was swept but not mopped. The jumping pillow is too expensive and should be included with the cost of staying especially when there are no other activities.
Aug 29, 2013
We loved all of the fun activities for kids- bike rentals, waterslide, bouncy pillow, movie night,minigolf, etc. We stayed in one of the 4 passenger camper cabins and would definitely stay in one again. My only complaint is that there was barely any grass throughout the whole complex. I understand grass is hard to maintain with so many vehicles/tents coming in/out, but some would've been nice.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We attempted grass....all the trees rejected the idea! We are installing new tent areas with graveled pads for the tents. Thanks

Loved our stay , our 6 and 3 year old never ran out of fun things to do. The kids asked why we couldn't live there. We'll be back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. We look forward to seeing you in 2014! There will be additional activities next season.

We really like this KOA as it is right next to ATV trails. Please fix the AC though

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You're not kidding about the AC! lol. New units have already been purchased! See you in 2014
Aug 27, 2013
Wonderful time. Booked the same cabins and lodge for next year extending our stay to 4 nights. Love the lodge but would like to see a full size refrigerator/freezer like the new lodges have. It's more convenient for a longer stay. The stiff mattress cover was the noisiest I've ever tried to sleep on. Something softer and quieter would be a kudo. Otherwise, looking forward to next year!! Thank you!
Aug 27, 2013
It was wonderful! Not one single thing to complain about!
Aug 27, 2013
Excellent stay as usual! Firewood bundles seem to be getting a little small though and some of the younger staff memebers seem like they don't want to be there. Maybe they need a pep talk, lol.

our cabin was clean, it smelled nice, cleaned by Jaimie. the bathrooms were very nice, plenty of hot water. A little less dust, but a very nice place. Kathy who checked me in was very friendly. The owner, Tony was very friendly and polite. I would come back, but get a more deluxe cabin. thank you everyone for making my stay a nice experience.

The cabin was great! My only complaint was the prices were too high on the activities!

We had a wonderful time staying at the Hayward KOA!! Thank you for your hospitality and allowing us to make such great memories with our family and friends!!!!

The cabin had not been cleaned. Dirt & various garbage pieces on the floor, the trash can was full including a dirty diaper. Our boys loved the park & riding their bikes around. They had fun in the pool. They loved the waterslide as well. I think for the price people pay to stay, more things (waterslide, pillow, golf) should be included, or at least a one-time fee for the duration of the stay.
Aug 24, 2013
the staff were not very nice or helpful. the water slide being closed wasnt very fun either. wont be back

The campgrounds were clean and well cared for, however, the help tended to go 'over the top' with talking about the rules. Also, the entire campgrounds area should be expanded; add some bushes or trees between sites, they are WAY TOO packed together. Clearly trying to maximize profit at the expense of privacy. The pool is too small for the volume of people they pack in the campgrounds.
Aug 21, 2013
Overall, we had a great time. The cabins were wonderful. The things that disappointed us were all of the additional costs, unfriendly staff in the office, camping in gravel (very dusty) and the lack of information on how late we could rent bikes and that the water slide would be closed for our stay. The website/office needs to improve on the information available.

We stayed in a camper lodge. It was very nice and clean. We enjoyed the KOA but the sites were SO close. There really was no room for the kids to play at the site. At night, I felt like we were having our campfire with our site neighbors. We went with friends and requested to have our lodges together. A RV was in between the two lodges. It was very awkward.
Aug 19, 2013
We go to this KOA every year and always have a great time. But, this year I was very disappointed that the pool was not being heated. That has always been my favorite part; the swimming. The kids, of course, swam, but not as much as usual. And the adults did not swim at all; the water was just too cold! No other complaints, staff was great, glow show was very entertaining, and great tubing!
Aug 18, 2013
Wish there was more activities for kids during the weekday in the evenings. Like crafts, evening movies ect..

Had a GREAT time! Facilities terrific. Lots for children to do. Keep up the good work!!

We rented a cabin and it was lovely! The campground was very clean and tidy.The only bummer is that nothing in inclusive.We pain $97 for one night in a cabin.We had to pay $4 per child(any age)to jump on the jumping pillow.$10 per child to do the waterslide.I can see charging for the bike rentals,it just seemed we were nickle and dimed for everything else.Hey! we didnt have to pay for a shower! :)
Aug 13, 2013
We had a great time at the KOA! The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that the deluxe cabins were so close together that we couldn't really play any yard games or get our cars out of the way. Our fire was in our neighbors yard and luckily that was our parents. Just a bit crowded.
Aug 13, 2013
Stayed for 4 nights to play disc golf in the area. Cabin was clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. Nice pool and many activities for those who cared to participate. Thank you.
Aug 13, 2013
Everyone was friendly. . Our camping cabin was very clean and the activities were well planned out and fun! We will be back!
