We have children ranging from 19 to 10 years old. All of our children had a great time and no one said they were bored- not even once! The campground was beautiful and the bathrooms were clean and warm. I do wish our fire pit would have had a grate over it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great! Whole family fun at the Hayward KOA! We're glad you all had a fun filled time.

The campground was great and my only complaint was with the cabin we stayed in. It was not cleaned very well or not recently cleaned. The carpet was filthy - I would not take my socks off to even step on it. As the loft was also carpeted and it was dirty (although not quite as bad), our second couple slept in the living room. I would definitely come back but not stay in that cabin.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the comments. That cabin had a hard season due to a huge amount of business, so we have scheduled the cabin for refurbishing early Spring 2016. We look forward to serving you again and as always, if there is ever an issue in the park, please notify the office. Thanks again.

Had s great weekend. I prefer a campground with more privacy for the sites. But we were there during the offseason so very few campers. Enjoyed it very much!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That's what we like to hear! Our guest having a great stay and fun times at the Hayward KOA. Thanks for coming.

We were all sick so we left a day early. I spent all of Saturday in bed. I am waiting for a confirmation we will have a rain check for one night. When can we make reservations for next year? I did call twice a day or 2 before we came and left a message. No one ever returned my call.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. We're glad to have been able to assist with the rain check. We look forward to see you next season.

What a great weekend. They really were thoughtful and very accommodating. The spaghetti supper , restrooms were spotless and not crowded, have the bike was area with supplies was outstanding. Next year we are bringing the grandkids with us. There were so many things for them to do, bouncing area, pool, water slide, basketball court, bikes, hayride etc. I forgot how fun camping could be.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Awesome! We look forward to seeing you and your group next year! Thanks for your business!

Incredibly friendly staff, very clean everywhere, AMAZING spaghetti sauce at Friday night's dinner, and free mini golf!!! Thanks for another perfect weekend. Our KOA stay is a huge part of the whole wonderful experience.

Overall my family and I enjoyed this campground. There was a lot to do and it is very well maintained. That being said, I did feel they were a bit "nickle and dime-y", everything costs money! And when my husband and son wanted to watch the storm roll in under the pavilion (1/2 hour before curfew even), they were told they couldn't. "If I let you, then I'd have to let everyone." Ugh.

Great location, staff very rude "katie" omg, very bothered by my son's presence. Other koas I have been they pick up your trash. Very polite.
Sep 15, 2015
Everyone was very friendly and helpful! I can see this campground being congested and noisy on a holiday weeknd, but that is a KOA thing, not specific to this campground. We loved the quiet and relaxed atmosphere. We rented the largest cabin they had and it was a bit snug for 5 adults, as they are meant only for a family with children. Everything was very clean!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very good. Thanks for coming and we're glad you enjoyed your stay.
Sep 13, 2015
Was good but the office hours where a little short. The closing time was very early in the day.
Sep 10, 2015
Love it here. Been camping here since I was a baby. Great times. Lots for kids to do.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks so much!

We had a wonderful time again! Love the staff ... and all of the FUN activities for the kiddos!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This weekend was a blast..... Thanks so much.

I have nothing but good words to speak. The Staff is wonderful as well as the campground. We were upgraded to a cabin due to a storm for the price of our tent. I couldn't have been more impressed! Very much appeciated. We will be visiting more often.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Come on back. We appreciate your continued business. Thanks for staying with us this summer.

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.

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.

It was nice and clean and quite along with relaxing.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you all enjoyed yourselves.... Thanks for the comment.

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.

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.

Very nice staff!!! Very clean bathrooms!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Kudos house keeping.... Thanks for the comments.
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 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
Loved it! Great activities for families and very well maintained. Especially loved the outdoor kitchen. An option may be to offer an optional mini-fridge with the cabins for an extra $10/night?

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you all enjoyed your stay. We know you have a choice in where you camp and we appreciate your spending time at this park. Good thoughts on the fridge....

Staff really needs some training in customer service. Wifi service was horrible.
Aug 24, 2015
Had a great time at the Hayward KOA. Grandkids would like to see the Saturday dance longer than 30 minutes.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. The dance Saturday was cut short due to the rain....we had to move the outdoor movie into the pavilion. Normally the dance is from 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM.
Aug 24, 2015
We enjoyed our stay at KOA. There are many activities for the kids and families, the grounds are clean, friendly staff. Negatives: it is busy, the sites are very close together so there is NO privacy, older kids are free range and they aren't very attentive of the little ones (not KOA's fault) so if you have younger kids this may not be for you, as its harder for them to participate.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your comments. We have age appropriate activities throughout the park so we can accommodate different ages of guest. We're glad you had a fun time.
Aug 24, 2015
I had my daughters family in one cabin my sons in another. We played mini golf swam, jumped on the bouncer had caricatures done, went tubing relaxed by the campfire, visited Hayward, hayrides and a dance and movies. The kids played in the arcade, on the playground and one the water slide. We were there from Thursday to Sunday. The weather was nice couldn't ask for a more enjoyable vacation. Thank

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Your welcome. Your why we do what we do. We appreciate it when our guest have a great time and enjoy themselves while at the park. Come back soon

We had a great time exclamation staff was very accommodating they even helped us with our reservation so that our two groups could be closer together within the campground. The kids love all of the activities. We will be back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We'll look for your return. So many of our guest repeat throughout the season. We enjoy hosting family reunions as well.
Aug 22, 2015
We have always stayed at this KOA with our kids. 10 years later,we brought our2 granddaughters. The upgrades and changes are fabulous. They're favorite was the jumping pillow. ( they are 2 & 4).

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very good....more updates are in the works and as always continued fun, fun, fun.

It was great!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very good. Glad you enjoyed the park.
Aug 21, 2015
In the 30 years that my family has been camping at this campground, the power outage that occurred during the weekend of Aug. 14-16, 2015 was the first time I have ever seen that happen. It was unfortunate for the ones without power, but I hope they will try this KOA again in the future!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks so much for the confidence you have placed in our park over the last many years. Excel had an underground transformer blow and it took a while to repair but all is well. Thanks for your business and hurry back soon.
Aug 21, 2015
Very nice campground. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. Wasn't a fan of having to pay extra for waterslide, mini golf, and jumping pillow. Overall good stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts. Glad you had a good time.
Aug 20, 2015
Loved the cabins! Would recommend increase in rates and make it all inclusive though so kids don't have to asking for additional monies.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the thoughts.... the all inclusive hasn't worked because so many of our guest don't use all or any of the amenities.... and they don't want to pay for what they don't use....
Aug 19, 2015
This was our fourth and final year at your KOA. I would strongly suggest that you work on the staff and how they accommodate and change their attitudes to the guests! Not pleasant at all from the lady at the desk to the gentleman moving your stuff around the pool!! Then to top off while making reservation not having your calls returned and always unwilling to accommodate a group in ridiculous! You

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Are you sure you were at our park? We get a HUGE amount of very positive comments on the helpfulness and friendliness of our staff. We accommodate dozens of groups throughout the season and we pride ourselves in our customer service which is testified to by dozens of guest reviews.
Aug 18, 2015
Once again had fantastic stay with the grand kids ! Thank you!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

So many of our guest return many times throughout the season and we were glad to see you again. Come back soon and bring the grandkids! This week-end is customer appreciation weekend during our Hawaiian theme! Brings your Hawaiian shirts and join in during the DJ dance!

We enjoyed our stay very much at the campground the bathrooms were extremely clean staff was friendly there is always something to do we loved the entertainment and expecially the glow show was awesome this was our first time to stay and I'm sure we will be back again

Mattresses in camping cabins were extremely uncomfortable,too thin and no support,could feel the wood slats underneath. Hotel type beds would be much nicer. Overall it's much too crowded,too many people,not relaxing at all but kids enjoyed all the activities

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Most of the cabins have new 5 inch mattresses. If your in the area after Labor Day weekend, it's a great time to visit and see the Autumn colors at the same time.... what-a-package.
Aug 17, 2015
Clean accomodations, good customer service, lots of options for kids, but pool was FREEZING...

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We maintain the pool at 81 degrees but did have a maintenance issue which dropped the temps for a day. We're back to our normal selves again... Come join the fun!
Aug 16, 2015
Staff was very crabby/snotty this year. Also, was very disappointed when the pool was closed. Just wish they wouldve told us before we checked in, when you spend 130.00 a night to use the pool we would've rescheduled.
Aug 16, 2015
It was great! The price of firewood is rediculous for what you get, we burned thriugh $11 in 1 hour.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts. Labor Day weekend is coming fast.... trick/treat, haunted house, spooky time for the smaller crowd and fun, fun for all. Hope you can join in the activities.
