The camper next To us had 4vehicles parked around them ,it would have made it difficult to.get other campers by.with them sticking out in the aisle but other than that we had a great time4 wheeling and having s'mores and conversation around the campfire.

We stayed Tuesday thru Friday and liked how quiet it was. I imagine the weekends might be a little different. The pool was great as were all the workers.

Our stay was great. the employees were plesant and very helpful. The campground and the bathrooms were very clean. I always enjoy going there.

We stay at a lot of KOAs around the country and this one was very good. Lots of pine trees and overall nice and spacious. Well maintained, too.

Loved this place!
Jun 25, 2015
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.

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!
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.

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.

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.
Jun 22, 2015
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
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
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
great experience for kids
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 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!!

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 16, 2015
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

the wifi was very week...otherwise everything else was great.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

New additional wifi as of yesterday....
Jun 15, 2015
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
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! Also the place is immaculately clean the bathrooms are spotless and wonderful and the activities make it so your family is constantly having fun!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Hope your girl is well. We appreciate our staff! Great group of folks. We clean the shower/bath houses every 15 minutes during busy days. Thanks for coming.
Jun 15, 2015
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....
Jun 14, 2015
The Campground was very clean and quiet all of the people working there were friendly and helpful, and did such a good job keeping facilities working well and looking nice. We had brought our granddaughter with us. There are so many things to do around Hayward, and our sons now in their 30s practically grew up at KOA.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have so many guest that return for generations to the park. We do what we do for you and we're glad you and your family enjoy your stay
Jun 11, 2015

Families first!. Thanks
Jun 11, 2015
Great family campground! We definitely will be back

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you.
Jun 10, 2015
We had decent weather and the campground was not very full so that made our stay very nice. We had rain at night but with the concrete pad the mess stayed at a minimum. Our children had enough to do during the weekend with all the activities. Like other KOAs this one was clean and well kept up. We did have some late night/early morning parting by us so that did wake us up through the night.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have security scheduled and we'll pass this along to them. Quite hour is 11:00 PM. Every once and a while a have someone who needs reminded of that. If there is ever a problem, please let the office know. Thanks.
Jun 08, 2015
Really wonderful campsite. The best I have ever been to. The only set back was the wifi was not good. The signal would constantly cut out and could not stream movies. Other than that, great place. It would also be great to have cable TV offered at the premium patio sites as an extra perk. Thx

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

There is unfortunately no cable available outside of the city limits of Hayward and good news.... We just installed 5 additional wifi antennas!
Jun 08, 2015
Very nice campground, we loved the concrete patio and private site!! We are hoping to come back again this year. Friendly staff. Loved it!!! I would only request cable TV and better Wifi

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. We just installed an additional 5 wifi antennas yesterday to help handle the load. Unfortunately there is no cable television available outside of Hayward.
Jun 08, 2015
We stayed the first week of June. The pool, golf, jumping pillow, etc., were all closed without notice at 5:00 p.m.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our hours of operation are 8 AM until 9 PM Sun - Thur and until 10 PM on Fri -Sat. The early Spring and late Autumn we do have shorter hours of operation. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Jun 08, 2015
The Koa is a nice place. But the people are not as understanding and accommodating as the folks that owned it 20 years ago. Next time I come to town for a golf tournament I will probably stay somewhere else that will allow my camper to stay later in the day without charging me more money while I finish the tournament.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

What many may not realize is we have to keep staff late for any late checkouts, (so the sites can be cleaned for the next guest), and that increases our labor cost therefore.....There is the minimal charge. Thank you
Jun 06, 2015
Loved the Girls in the Office, the restrooms were spotless, the campground is very well kept. We brought our Polaris Ranger and access to the ATV/UTV Trails was great. Thank You so much.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great. We have a great staff who really enjoy their jobs and that makes a lot of difference in our park. We're glad you had a good time.
