Please put a sign that states, no alcoholic beverages at waterslide." I had a beer in my hand and it WAS the only beer I drank that day, they wouldn't let me on the waterslide because of it. I was not under the influence of alcohol. Like the slide rules stated. There clearly IS a difference. The girl was quite rude about it too. Otherwise our stay was great!

Great place to camp! So clean! Staff are friendly and there's lots of fun things to do. Only negative was the price. A tent site with no hookups cost about the same as a decent hotel room.

Thanks for your thoughts. We appreciate when our guest lets us know what they're thinking.

Enforce 5 mph rule for your staff in the golf carts. It was scary with little kids around. I expect they have speed limiting devices on the carts that could be set lower. The canoe trip from Seeley was fun but if the water was any lower there would be a lot of dragging the bottom.

This was out second year in a row, already planning our next trip. Staff was friendly and very helpful, facilities were clean, always something to do.

I liked my stay. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The restrooms and showers were probably the cleanest I have seen at any campgrounds I have ever stayed at. I would stay again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had the great opportunity of hiring an individual with 23 years experience in Hotel house keeping and she has been doing a great job! We'll let her know your thoughts. Thank you.

Very nice campgroud; however, way to expensive. wE have stay there several times, but I think the charges for the activities are too expensive. I see no reason that there needs to be an extra charge for both the waterslide and jumping pillow. We came with our 4 kids and it just was not even kind of affordable. I tihnk it is ridiculous when our camping was cheaper than being able to do extra things

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We understand about the extra cost! Our labor is very high due to the many employees it requires to run this park and our insurance cost could choke a horse! We do all we can to keep the cost low and offer many weekly themed activities at no cost to our guest. Thanks for your comments.

Great place for families. Grandsons loved pool,bike riding,games and prizes, movie at night and the TIPI we stayed in!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The Tipi's Were all new to this park just last season and have been a great addition. We're glad you and your family enjoyed your visit. Thanks for your continued business.

This was our first time staying at a KOA and our family loved it! There are so many things to do; there is no reason to leave the campground. My son loved the pool and the jumping pillow. We will be coming back for sure. The staff were very nice and helpful. They also made sure everyone followed the campground rules, which was very nice!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Welcome to the Hayward KOA. We strive for and believe our campground to be among the best in the area and always appreciate the feed back we get from our guest. We're glad you enjoyed the park and we look forward to your return. Check out our website for weekly themed events. Thanks again!

Its easy to see why this KOA gets high praise continually. They have plenty of stuff to do for the whole family. The bathrooms were cleaner than a lot of hotels I've stayed in. Great place to stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your words. We hired an individual with 23 years of experience in hotel house keeping and man does she do a great job! We're glad you enjoyed yourselves. Come visit us again.

need to spray for mosquitos. Campsite 178 was very poor for a tent.
May 27, 2014
Our stay at Hayward KOA was fabulous. We enjoyed every bit of it. The weather was wonderful. There was plenty to do for the kids. We weren't nickeled and dimed for every little thing. It was affordable. I liked the rules. The only thing we didn't like is we didn.t have a cement slab. There is no grass, The dirt makes a mess. I understand with all the trees it is hard to grow grass.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Trees, trees, trees....great for shade, bad for grass! We have installed additional patios this season and plan on continuing with more patio sites as time allows. We're also spreading gravel as needed. Thanks for your thoughts and we're glad you enjoyed your time here.

The campground overall is great, nice location, amenities, close to activities, and layout...except for the site I got this year. I was put in a tent site that a tent would not fit in. The only way to be able to set up a tent was to place it so a 5" stump was in the center of the tent and a tree up against the tent at 3 corners. Otherwise the stay was good.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the great comments. We'll look into the tree stump situation. Anytime there is a problem just let us know and we'll do all we're able to correct the situation. We are looking forward to another great KOA year!

The staff were great, very helpful and congenial. Tent sites are on sand though and that gets messy. Would be great if there more tent sites on grass available!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed your stay....new deluxe tent sites will be completed by the first of May. Sorry about the grass, all the trees make growing it difficult.

We had a great stay! Very Clean, maitained very well. The only thing I would change is not charging for mini golf or if you are going to charge, the course needs to be updated and fixed. The course was not maintained at all.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you had a great time and thanks for the comments. We have replaced all of the wood and all of the carpet in the mini golf area, created a pond/fountain and increased the flower gardens as well, so check us out in 2014 for the new additions. Thanks

Despite assurances, our tipi leaked. And there was a distinct sewage odor at our campsite. We have come to this campground at least once each year for the past 4 years. I doubt that we'll camp there again.
Sep 02, 2013
The many amenities for family is what really made our stay awesome. The convenience of tubing was excellent. Love the camp kitchen. Wasn't told aobut wristband package that included water slide, pillow jump, tubing, etc. Rating not 5 stars because of this.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. The river tubing is a big part of our park with as many as 600 tubers a day! We do have wrist band packages and we'll train our staff in letting everyone know! We're also looking into a zip line for the 2014 season! Hope to see you again.

Less friendly than last year. Large slide closed Mon -Wed Red Pine Breakfast only on weekends.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts. We're conducting customer service classes this coming 2014! Unfortunately we lost some workers near the end of our season and we had to run a limited schedule at the water slide. New, additional staff is already hired for 2014. Check out our web site for new info. Thanks
Aug 28, 2013
We had a great time during our stay. The staff is extremely friendly. When our to leaket they helped us dry our clothes. The one person Kay who is the activities person really went above and beyond.

Hayward is a nice place. Very very busy KOA. Booked at last minute and slept in teepee under the pines as camper cabins were booked. Unique experience.
Aug 26, 2013
It is always a great time!!! Unfortunately the water slide was down and the DJ cancelled for the Kamper Appreciation weekend.

The KOA in Hayward was very clean and nice. Our tent site was perfect. A few issues we had was the water slide. The water slide was closed for the whole time we were there. Our little kids were disappointed. They said they did not have enough life guards. All in all it was a great campground and very kid friendly.
Aug 21, 2013
Lovely big trees and great camping kitchen!
Aug 19, 2013
the campsites are TINY and everyone is Literally on top of eachother. Though I was only there for a place to sleep at night. The people were friendly and there were planty of ameneties, there was no privacy or space at ALL in the tent sites...
Aug 19, 2013
We love this KOA and always have a great time. The only downfall I can think of is that it gets pretty expensive for a family with kids when you pay for water slide, jumping pillow, bikes, golf, tubing, etc. all separately. It would be nice to see package rates for these extras.
Aug 18, 2013
We chose this campground because of the water slide and the kids really looked forward to going on it, however the water slide was closed for the whole weekend we were there. That was quite disappointing. Over all the campground is really nice and I would definately go back.

We had a great time. Lots of activities for the kids. Would have been nice to know that items such as tubing were additional costs though.

Theyseem to charge extra for everything. Dirt in camp areas, should be more grass Clean bathrooms was a plus and a laundermay was appreciated
Aug 13, 2013
It was very nice and enjoyable time at your KOA camp grounds. I would recommend a KOA camp ground to anyone.

Campsites to close together. Couldn't sleep, up ALL night listening to the campers on 2 sides of me talking. Had to hear 1 of them swearing & arguing w/other campers cause he didn't want to shut up. Ladies working the waterslide were very nice & seemed to truely enjoy what they did. Music in the woman's bathroom could be turned down for the night. Took my 6yr old to bathrm at 12.30,music blasting

Campground was right on a busy highway. Lots of road noise & dangerous for small kids. Sites were absolutely tiny, right on top of each other no privacy. Just 1 bathroom within walking distance & only had 1 sink! Road not paved, made biking tough for kids just learning. Pool and slide had no options for kids under 5 or 3' tall. We left early after just 1 night. Terrible. Stay at a nice state park.
Aug 06, 2013
Love the KOA. Sad a lot of the staff left this year. They made our trip. Prices are also getting pretty spendy.

We stayed in a teepee and it was a great experience ! This was my first time at a KOA and we will be back for sure! Staff members were also very friendly and pleasant :)
