For activities I rate this KOA a 10. But the cleanliness has gone from a 10 to a 4 in the last year or so with the new management. The bathrooms and showers were very dirty. The soap and towel dispensers were empty most of the time. The toilet paper is so thin that it tears when you try to take a piece and therefore the floor is littered with paper. Sanitary disposals were overflowing. Awful.

As usual, a great place to stay with close access to Hayward and a lot of fine eating places!

We really loved ur campground. The only thing we wish was different was the charge for the slide and bouncey pillow; its too expensive to pay individually and the kids had to look s at it anx be told we couldn't afford it. We just feel that if u were to increase the camping rate by $5 for everyone and included these actvities, u could still make money and people like us wouldn't have to say no.

Would be kinda nice to have "alittle" grass in between sites but wasn't a huge deal. Got alittle irritating that you had to whisper, at most, after 11 but we could understand do to the tent campers- We will be back!

This was my first time at a koa. The front desk clerks were very touchy and kinda rude. The rv sights were soo jam packed together it was not a relaxing weekend at all. There was no grates to cook on for the fire pits. Even attempted on buying one but were all sold out. One showering station for the whole place , very inconvenient. And wood was way over priced. Will not ever stay at a koa again.

I felt with a very busy weekend with many campers that the bathrooms needed to be checked more often. They were dirty and smelled and to keep it stocked with supplies. The showers were not very warm and some were even cold and also cleaned more often. There should be more showers and bathroom facilities for as big as the campground is getting. We will be back next year.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for you comments. With the size of the park, the bathrooms are a challenge. We have hired additional housekeepers for the 2014 season which will focus primarily on the restrooms. We're also remodeling the water slide restroom building this coming Spring! Glad you enjoyed your stay.

More activities should be included (no extra cost) for campers. "Heated" pool was ice cold! bought expensive tiny packs of firewood because no campground we've ever gone to has allowed you to bring your own. Didn't use one pack (still wrapped). Would not let us return it!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry to hear not all was to your expectations. We were forced to locate a new supplier (higher priced) of firewood, due to the old supplier no longer being available. Check out our web page for 2014 activities. We look forward to seeing you again. Thanks

This was our first trip to KOA. We had a very nice time.Very clean park. Few suggestions... More seating for adults watching over children in play ground and "Bouncy" area. I had to see for myself after I was told by a friend that you were selling candy CIGARETTES!! It would be hard to believe you actually thought that was a good idea in a children's park!!! Shame on you!!!.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comments. We'll look into the candy situation. Hope to see you next year!

Great campground! Our campsite however did not accommodate our camper. Once we had our slides out we were pinned between 2 rows of trees. No room to let our awning out :( 35 ft travel trailer with 2 slides. Site 228. We loved the trees but that site could use a few less.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are removing around 250 trees this coming season to assist with accommodating larger units and easier movements.

I was very upset to see the camp store sold candy cigarettes. This is totally inappropriate as it sends a bad message to kids that smoking is cool.

I like the campground but I honestly think they should make 2 different areas because quiet time at 11:00 pm is not for us. We are all late 30's with kids and socialize at night because we do kids stuff during the day so that being said having a rude man coming over telling us to keep it down when all we were doing is talking is to much! And I heard the same story from different campers I met.

When paying a good amount for a campsite, some things should be included.Wristbands were overpriced. Most of staff were friendly, could relax a little on quiet hours.
Sep 03, 2013
The staff is excellent

Thank you....they really work hard!

Really missed the tie dyed t-shirts that you could make! Closer monitoring of the jumpy pillow. Maybe have a rule that children under 12 need to be supervised by parent when using.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great ideas! Check out the web site for updated activities in 2014, tie-dye is back! Thanks
Sep 03, 2013
Wonderful place to stay with children! Lots to do! Our group had a blast but we think that the bouncy pillow should be free, also the 11pm quiet time is just fine however we were sitting by the fire talking and told to be quiet. Maybe they should have a side for people that want to stay up past 11pm and able to talk outside and then a quiet side as well to please all. But overall a great stay!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your thoughts. With as many trees in the park as there are... the sounds/talking is held near the ground and really travel throughout the park. We always wish for all guests to enjoy themselves, but 11 PM is as late as we dare go. Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay.

The amenities and bathrooms were great and staff was helpful. The biggest downfall to this campground is the dirt/sand and the $36 wristbands for the water slide/jumping pillow/ tubing.

We have been camping at Hayward KOA for 20 years and LOVE it! It is truly a fun place for families. We have spread the word to many families about how great Hayward KOA is. It's a great day when you are at KOA!!! See ya next year!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That's great. Let us know when you return, we would like to meet you. See you in 2014! Tony/Rosie

Dirty bathrooms, quoted prices were wrong, off by $17 per person for 3 day passes on waterslide/tubing/pillow. Also waterlside was closed! Staff not friendly!
Aug 30, 2013
We were disappointed that we were not told the water slide wouldn't be open at all during our 4 day stay. Campsites are way too close together, waiting for the gravel around the jumpy pillow to dry while the large staff in yellow told the kids they would check on it and didn't until asked at least 4 more times wasn't nice, either. If not for the pool, we would have found another campground.

The new owner doesn't want people to enjoy themselves. We had thirty people in our group and he wanted one person to talk at a time by the campfire. We were told we were not welcome back after the whole group have coming there for twenty years never had a problem an tell this year. We won't be back next year .

Nice area and great staff. Downside is the waterslide and the advertised daily breakfast are both only open on the weekend.
Aug 28, 2013

During check in, There were 3 staff there, 1 of which was a teenage girl who was in a snit about having to relieve a co-worker from the water slide. Her attitude was extremely unpleasant and unwelcoming to a guest-especially during camper appreciation weekend! Second, make the "no smoking" a priority at the pool. Thirdly, offer plastic recycling!
Aug 27, 2013
love your campground, but disappointed that we did not have a host show us to our campsite. It's always appreciated when we have a host show us ro our site and makes sure we are situated on the site okay.
Aug 27, 2013
While the campground was good, you have a worker there that has the poorest manners when dealing with people. Elise is her name and she should really work on how she presents herself to clients.
Aug 26, 2013
The campgrounds and facilities were always clean and the staff was friendly it was a great place to stay and we will be coming back again and again and again thanks a lot Phil and Angie :)

Having stayed at this KOA for years, it's obvious there are new owners. I miss all the friendly retired help that was always there. Mostly young help that weren't very friendly. The restrooms weren't as clean as in the past. The price of wristbands remained the same. Too costly for large families. If you lowered the prices, more wristbands would be purchased.

We had a great camping experience. It was our first time ever camping, and it was AWESOME!! The staff at the Hayward KOA is amazing! Very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back. Hopefully the water slide will be open everyday when we return. Thank you for a very memorable camping trip!!

Campground nice and clean. Workers friendly, and you had excellent weather...good job.
Aug 23, 2013
Customer care was very poor and disrespectful at times for the amount of money my family spent four rv s a. Two cabins and slide closed for lack of Workers unacceptable disappointed
Aug 23, 2013
we loved the camp grounds and all the fun...we would come back for sure
Aug 21, 2013
Disappointed that fees were charged for jumping pillow and slide, etc. this wasn't clearly noted on website. It was advertised as a great feature of the campground but not that we'd be charged extra. The glow show was good.
Aug 21, 2013
It was wonderful! So much for everyone to do.. We will definitely be back some time in the near future!!
Aug 20, 2013
We love it at the Hayward KOA!
Aug 20, 2013
I think the children activities were wonderful. However I think a reasonable package should be offered it does add up for families that want to use the bounce and waterslide. I went with a party and she did not get the cabin she reserved. I think it is bad when all they did is give her the run around all weekend. Instead of dealing with it. She made her reservations in Feb. didn't get reserved
