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.

The staff is excellent

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.

Great ideas! Check out the web site for updated activities in 2014, tie-dye is back! Thanks

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!

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

Needed a shoe horn to get in and out of site, nickeled and dimed us for all attractios, waiited an hour in blasting sun for tube pickup, little grass (all dust) thruout site. Still had fun but will likely not return.
Aug 20, 2013
The water slide and jumping pillow weren't included with stay at campground. We couldn't believe we had to pay for these things additionally. Some of the staff didn't dress very professionally or identifiable as an employee. I saw several of the staff texting or on their cell phones while driving golf carts around the campground.
Aug 20, 2013
Not worth the price. Two mornings in a row, while eating, we had nothing but dust blowing at us from black top being blown off. When something was said, comment back was, ya, it's been pretty dusty. Our campers and vehicles had to be cleaned top to bottom. Went to see light show but couldn't see much. Heard many upset people. Need to have risers or something to accommodate guests.

I've been here before and always enjoy it. This stay we checked early about tubing and were told the last van would pick up at 4:30. We planned the rest of our day around this. We were ready to head tubing at 4:00, we went to the office and were told there wouldn't be any more shuttles because the driver had to get to his other job. We don't vacation much this is it.it was disappointing.
Aug 19, 2013
We went for lumber jack competition & they told us they did shuttles to the competition. They would not shuttle us on Thursday which was family night because they weren't aware of it. Water slide was closed due to weather being cool. We've had better service atother KOA's.
Aug 19, 2013
no water slide but still paid for it it seems all they want is your money i have stayed at koa and never had this happen one dad apple won't change my mind but never again at koa hayward wi

This is our 6th year camping with the Hayward KOA. We have been to 6 different themes & was really looking forward to the laser show. Disappointed that it was standing room & we couldn't see over anyone. Left after a few minutes. Bummer. But, one of the ice cream girls gave my son a free ice cream when he smacked his head & got a big lump. We will be back. Maybe chocolate weekend?

1. I was disappointed that when I called for a tent site I came to find out we were put into a full hook up site and could have saved $30. 2. Extremely disappointed that the waterslide was only operating at certain times and the fact that you had to pay extra to use it along w/bouncy pillow and a mini golf that there was nothing to...literally. I feel as a camper amenities should be included.
Aug 19, 2013
I arrived for a 6 day stay with my children. 5 days earlier the lifeguard quit and the waterslide was closed. I wished I had been informed so I could have made alternate plans. I expressed this to the owner and wasn't given any sort of compensation. We made a long drive and were disappointed.
Aug 19, 2013
We take our Grandchildren tot his KOA the same week every year. We always have a wonderful time, including this year. This year for the first time we found the pool was not kept warm enough. We hope this will be corrected as it is the central reason for choosing this KOA and I'd hate to see them lose guests. The staff are professional and friendly and the amenities are great.
Aug 19, 2013
Nice staff, clean facilities and campsites. A little disappointed that it was hard to get a truely hot shower at 7:15 am. This was a first as we have stayed three prior times and never ran out of hot water. Otherwise our stay was great!
Aug 19, 2013
One of the workers was blowing off the driveway and the dirt was blowing all over our camp. Someone complained but he continued. Not cool. Other than that it was a good stay.

Excellent time a lot for the kids to do
Aug 18, 2013
Rates are way too high. We shouldn't have to pay extra for our 2 children. Rate should include a family of 6 with no extra fees! And the mini golf and pillow jump should be included in the camp site fee and be free like the Pool.
Aug 18, 2013
Great location and many activities available for a price. Indifferent staff at check-in. Collected the money, gave us a map to find our site and provided no other information or made any attempt to make us feel welcome.
Aug 18, 2013
The sites are very close together. Didn't understand why we were smack up against a cabin when there were loads of empty full service sites in less occupied areas of the park.
