Our grand daughter had a good time and didn't mind swimming in the cool temp. She most liked jumping on the pillow. I have a BS degree in Forest and worked for the US Forestry dept some time ago. I was very concerned the nite the wind blew. looking up at the nice Red Pine all I could focus on was the broken limbs, or Widow Makers. You should start a program to trim the dead branches abt 200/year

Everything about this campground is great. The facilities and environment were really nice, the people were very pleasant, and their were many things for the children to do.

All was great but was noisy and partying until after midnight.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad to hear all was great. Unfortunately once in a while a few folks need reminding that the 11:00 PM quiet hour really means.... please be quieter after 11:00 PM. Mutual respect goes a long way.

Was our 2nd time camping there. Will return in the future:)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your continued business. Come back soon.
Aug 25, 2015
Fabulous campground. Staff were friendly and happy. The pool is decent size. The water slide (which costs extra) was great. Playground is probably one of the nicer ones. Tubing was sooo much fun. The only negative..the sites are small

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great! Thanks for coming. A 9 feet deep, 80,000 gallon pool with a 320 ft waterslide is not the typical camp ground. We're glad you enjoyed yourselves!
Aug 25, 2015
Had a great campsite. Pool was warm. Wonderful playground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you had a fun time. Come back soon.

Sites are to small for the big rigs, Both in length and width. Workers were very friendly and the campground was kept very clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're currently looking at the creation of larger rig sites which is a little challenging in this park. Thanks for the comments.
Aug 24, 2015
We had a good time. There were a couple problems on the jumping pillow, would like to see someone watching the kids there as our friends 4 year old had a kid purposely bouncing him off. We did get someone from the store. There was also another kid later throwing rocks at some of the kids. Otherwise it was a nice place to stay and we will be back

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you had a good time. If there is ever an issue please see the office and we'll take care of the situation. Thanks

Wonderful stay!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you liked it. Come again when you have the time.
Aug 24, 2015
Very clean and friendly Staff. I feel at the price of the campsites there shouldnt be an additional cost for golf and jumping pillow, i can see for the water slide but ive never been to a koa that these extra costs are in place.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The jumping pillow is the most costly amenity we have in the park and our cost dictates the prices. We look every year to see how we can lower the cost and will continue as budget allows. Thanks.
Aug 24, 2015
The kids loved it! friendly staff. Pool was very cold. Campfire wood bundles were very small but delivered to your site. Very strict on quiet time. We were just sitting at our site and at 1130 security came by to tell us that it is quiet time I apologized and asked if we were being loud and he said the trees carry the noise and then our dog started to bark. So, wasn't happy about that.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We attempt to maintain the pool at 81 degrees although these 42 degree nights don't help! We appreciate everyone that assist in the quiet hour. Most times any noise is not intentional.... the trees hold down the noises and voices carry when the park is very quiet. Thanks
Aug 24, 2015
We were very disappointed with the fact that we had to pay an extra$ 10 a night to put a tent on our RV site to me that just seems like greed the bundles of wood are very small too

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

All sites are restricted to one unit per site. One additional unit is sometimes allowed as long as there is always a maximum of 6 guest per site. This is an nationwide industry standard and we find it a necessary evil in this particular park. Thanks for your comments.

Nice campground with great activities and facilities for kids.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very good. Thanks for visiting!

Great family atmosphere! We loved the tall pines.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. Family is what matters and we're glad yours had a fun time under the tall pines and star light sky.

This was a great place to spend time with my kids and grandchildren. everyone had a great time. One issue I would like to make note of is that all your lodges are priced the same, but some of the lodges were a lot better than others. For example, the first night I stayed in KL6 and it was very nice, the second and third nights I stayed in KL2, and I was disappointed in that lodge as a comparsio

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Good points..... thanks for your thoughts.
Aug 19, 2015
Our last minute plans led us to stay at KOA. We have experienced KOA black hills s Dakota. Loved it there. We were disappointed we had to pay for water slid etc. Should be included because site is spendy. We will be returning next July but for lumber jack days where activity will be away from camp ground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great.... Thanks for coming. Lumberjack weekend is great and we have a shuttle service which takes you to/from the park directly to the competition. No parking problems!. See you next year.

It was a hot week-end, the power in the park went out all around us but owner did a great job restoring the power.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are very glad we were able to deal with that situation with a fair amount of ease. Excel really worked quickly to replace their blown transformer and all was well! Come again soon.

The best part of our stay was the friendly, helpful staff! Very nice people. It was nice to have the honey wagon option. We felt that the campsites were way too close together. We also felt that the activities were a bit overpriced. There were no doggie poop bags in the dog run for 2 days. Most campgrounds we've been to have doggie bags placed in several locations throughout the campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have three doggie spots which are stocked regularly. if there is ever any issues in the park.... we're here 24/7. Please let the office know. We have a great staff and we'll pass along your thoughts.
Aug 18, 2015
I would think the deluxe cabins would have a little stove.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Check out our deluxe cabins KL3 or KL4 which have stoves as well.... it's all in the descriptions listed on the web site or call the office and we'll be glad to send you in the best directions for your camping needs. Thanks.
Aug 18, 2015
The stay was good. There was a pretty long wait for the Tubing Both before we left and waiting along side the road after. WE did loose power for some of the stay. It didn't seem to affect anything that we were doing and I feel they handled the problem well. We did have to use some other means to keep food and stuff cold but al was well in the end. we will be back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

A transformer of Excels blew but they we're quick at the repairs thankfully! We appreciate your spending time with us and will be looking for your return. Thanks for your thoughts.
Aug 18, 2015
We gad a great time. The staff was polite and professional. My only dislike was with the cost vs the size of wood bundles and the actual size of the pieces.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your comments. You would thinks we would have the options of many areas to obtain bundled wood in the North woods of Wisconsin but that's not the case and the fellow we were getting the wood from retired. I'll take a look at the bundles and see what we can do. Thank for the information.
Aug 18, 2015
Very enjoyable. We stayed to go to a couple activities in Hayward and the campground worked out great.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Only three miles from all that Hayward has to offer and a fun camping experience to boot! Thanks for making the Hayward KOA your spot to stay. Come back soon.
Aug 18, 2015
Good time! Friendly Staff!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Once again! Thanks for your continued business and we look for your return. We appreciate when our guest have a great time and work hard to ensure the best available in camping. Check out our new web-site and come visit again..... Labor Day will be a blast!
Aug 18, 2015
We booked our site over the phone but when we arrived were told we got bumped, into a very small site which was disappointing..something about not getting locked into the site number when we booked??? We were then able to move to one of the working sites which turned out to be a very nice site which we were happy with. We want to come back however most sites seem too tight. Will be back next year!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

As you become more accustomed to the park and like a particular area or site... you have first dibs at the next years reservations. This way your always ensured a site which you'll be home away from home on and it helps make your stay great. Glad we could help move you this visit. Thanks for coming.
Aug 18, 2015
We LOVED the amenities of the Kampground, the pool, golf and the activities that were offered i.e. free smore's; Glow Show etc. The staff were EXCELLENT they were friendly, helpful and always smiling. We were impressed. My husband and I both work with employees and I loved the attitudes there. We did lose power for a few hours and of course worried for our pet and food etc. but they fixed it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Another one! Thanks so much.... Excel blew a transformer and we were partially affected but they we're quick at their work and all was well. Thanks for spending part of your time with us!
Aug 18, 2015
The traffic noise was lound from hyw 63.also the dust from campground roads was too much

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You need the south end of the park.... larger sites, grass and quieter. If we can ever be of help during your stay....please see the office and we'll assist every way we're able!
Aug 18, 2015
Was a great stay, except for all the dust from vehicles near our site, felt like we were eating and breathing dust. Had a lot of fun though!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

To say Saturday was a hot dry day is an understatement! We finally have rain and we need it. We're glad you had a fun time.
Aug 18, 2015

Aug 17, 2015
We were passing through for a few days and it was a great place to stay.we were centrally located to visit Duluth and other area attractions.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great.... so many drive past us not realizing what we actually have to offer. We're glad your stopped and had fun with us this year. Come back if your ever in the area again. Thanks
Aug 16, 2015
A few recommendations for this KOA would be to: 1. Have a package discount for the jumping pillow/mini golf/water slide. 2. When guests check-in, hand them an itinerary of that weekends events. First time guest do not know where they are hung up around the park and there were none available at the desk. 3. Try to do pool maintenance in the early am or late pm. Don't close it for a whole day.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the thoughts.... P.S. We had a break down at the pool and that dictated when we had to complete the maintenance.....
Aug 16, 2015
We've loved the KOA. This time, however, the water slide was closed most of the day on Friday. It understandably had to close when there was the possibility of a thunderstorm, but when we went back two more times later in the day it remained closed. The all day wristbands were not utilized.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

??? If there is ever any problems in the park, please see the office. We're here to help make your time in the Hayward area great and we want you to enjoy yourselves while at our park. FYI... By law we have to remain closed for 30 minutes after we hear the last thunder. Thanks for the info.
