We once again absolutely loved our stay! We were put into the same site as a couple of years ago which we were super excited about! The only thing we thought of as a suggestion is maybe before events start to possibly have someone drive around the grounds to announce the event was going to start. We missed a bit of the movie but it was all still so fun! Thank you!

Wonderful idea... we've been thinking of how to have an annoucment system placed in the park....

I had a sleepover birthday party for my daughter here, it was a hit! We stayed in a tipi, they lived it! There was so much for them to do!!! We had a blast!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That sounds great. Thanks so much for your spending part of your summer with us....

Enjoyed the campground during the day including all the activities for the kids. Main complaint is that the quiet hours were not observed. Our family was up till after 130 am because of the noise. We left one day early to ensure our kids would get some sleep.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have security on all busy days and an after hours number should there ever be an issue in the park. The 11PM quiet time is strictly enforced. It is our goal for ALL our guest to enjoy their camping time in our park.

This is one of the better KOA's we have stayed at. The tent sites are even, well spaced and. close to the bathrooms. The campground is full of tall pines which provides a lot of shade. There are tons of activities for the kids and some for adults.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. The trees are great for the warm July sunshine!.... and the moon is just plain beautiful rising through the pines at night!

My family and I rented a tent site at KOA and even though the weather wasn't perfect the weekend we were there. We WILL be coming back in the future! The kids loved swimming in the heated pool, playing on the playground, playing a round of mini golf, and participating in the endless activities offered during our stay. I would highly recommend KOA to anyone!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very good.... Many of our guest come by word of mouth and we appreciate your comments and are thrilled you all had a great time!

This was our third visit, your KOA is becoming a tradition for our family and young son. It's fun to see which activities he enjoys most each time we visit as he grows. Last weekend he loved your water slide and was on it for HOURS. We'll be back, Thank you!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Fun, fun. Come back soon. Each week is a different theme!

A little close to traffic but well managed and laid out!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The south end of the park and the 160's are popular areas of the park that you may try next time. Thanks for your comments.

We enjoyed staying at the KOA but felt as if we were sardines. Very squished! And by far the most expensive! The cost wouldn't have been so bad had it included some of the activities available at the site but because everything had a fee the money spent this weekend was not worth it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Did you participate in the free s'mores. , trick/treating/ movie, DJ dance, costume contest, haunted house, wagon rides, site decorating contest, Games, activities etc. that had no cost at all?
Sep 09, 2015
The TeePee and tent site provided the perfect balance for a camping trip that included my son (an avid camper) and my daughter's family who are novice campers.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very good. Thanks for choosing the Hayward KOA for your camping fun. Check out our web-site for next years themed weekends and activities!
Sep 04, 2015
We had a fantastic weekend with our granddaughter at the KOA in Hayward. There were so many activities to participate in or to do on your own you couldn't possibly be bored! We especially liked games in the field, dancing, swimming and watching A movie on the big screen outside. The highlight though was sleeping in a Tipi!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We so glad you all enjoyed your stay here at the park. Thanks for visiting and we hope to see you again next season!

Everything was perfect. Kids had a blast with everything! I loved how clean everything was and how friendly everyone was.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That's the Hayward KOA. Thanks for noticing and come back soon. We're glad you enjoyed yourselves.
Aug 26, 2015
Everything about this KOA was awesome. Plenty of stuff to do for the kids. The only thing that was a bummer for is was the site itself. When we booked the site, we explained that we were going to be setting up two tents. The site we were given barely had room for one tent, unless it was a small two person tent. There were gaps in the trees big enough for the tent, but the stumps were still there.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

If there is ever an issue, please see the office and we'll do all able to accommodate your needs. Thanks for visiting.
Aug 25, 2015
The camp is kept clean and the staff is helpful. I was not prepared for the significant added costs. What we had to pay for vs. what we got for it was not worth a second visit for us.
Aug 24, 2015
The best KOA campground we ever stayed. Whole family had a great time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Whole family fun no matter the age! We appreciate your comments.
Aug 24, 2015
We had a great time. Our only "complaint" would be the cleaning crew closing the bathroom at 8:30 - time to get kids ready for bed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. We only close the shower houses/rest rooms at night when a problem has occurred such as a running over toilet and we reopen as soon as possible. All hard cleanings take place in the day time hours. We're glad you had a great time at the park. Come back soon.
Aug 24, 2015
My girls were excited as soon as we pulled into the park. The activities that were available kept them busy the whole time we were there. The staff was welcoming right from when we pulled up. Vicki at the desk was amazing, she had us checked in within minutes. My phone was down and I needed repairs on my truck. She was more than happy to help. The 3 hour canoe trip was beautiful.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great! It's always good to hear when everyone has a fun time! Way to be Vicki. She and our other staff members have been great this year and we really appreciate all their hard work. Hope your truck is ok.
Aug 23, 2015
There are a great many things for kids to enjoy here; everything is very reasonably-priced and the staff is extra-kind and patient. The plentiful mature red pines are a very attractive feature of the grounds. All that is needed and more for great family memories is available here. --Benjamin, Duluth, MN

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You allowing us to be a part of making those great memories is appreciated. The little ones will remember camping for years to come and we're glad you chose the Hayward KOA for your families stay. Come back soon.
Aug 18, 2015
Nice tent site. But the pool water was very cold. Also, the shower had very little pressure and not very hot. The breakfast was very good. A little expensive for everything because everything except the pool cost money.
Aug 18, 2015
Camp sites were very clean. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. My 3 children, ages 12, 9 and 7, had a fabulously fun time!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Fabulous! That's why we do what we do. You and you family experiencing a fun filled, safe camping experience in what Midwest Living described as one of only 5 super camps in the mid-west. Whole family fun. Come back soon.
Aug 18, 2015
tent site. kitchen facility was the first time i've seen that! and very helpful. tent site well treed - great. pool was great. this is probably the most deluxe KOA i''ve ever stayed at. great service. bathrooms were good. maybe a bit undersized. saturday eve event was great. Price was a little higher than typical, but then you get a lot for the fee.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Now that's the Hayward KOA. Thanks for your business and thanks for noticing. We appreciate your comments and hope you can come back soon.

Waterslide staff were rude but otherwise had a great time!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for coming to the park. We'll check on the slide but we're glad everything else was great. If your in the area.... Labor Day weekend will be a blast! Bring your costumes and site decorations!
Aug 16, 2015
I feel like since the stay itself is so pricey, the features should come along with it for at least one day. I came thinking I would have plenty to do each day, but ended up being bored because of the prices. Would not recommend for teenagers. Also, quiet hours should be more enforced. I was woken up multiple times by my tent neighbors.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have mini golf, 3 horseshoe pits, 4 sets of bean bag toss, 2 tether ball. 2 play grounds, 320 ft waterslide, jumping pillow. 80,000 gal swimming pool, tubing/canoeing, DJ dances, movies/ activities/games, wagon rides, themed weekends. Fun for the whole family and all ages at the Hayward KOA!
Aug 11, 2015
Lots of activities for kids. I was there alone, so it got a little noisy at night. But, it was more important for the kids to have their fun. Very well run place.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very good. Thanks for coming and for understanding. The kiddos have a lot of fun. Free Saturday night movies, DJ dance, games, crafts, activities, tubing and canoeing/waterslide/jumping pillow/mini golf/swimming pool/wagon rides..... fun but noisy. The 11:00 PM quiet hour helps.
Aug 08, 2015
Teepee smelled awful! We were rained out and left in the middle of the night. ATM didn't work, but held $205.00 of mine hostage until the next day. Customer service felt rushed and intense. Fee for just about everything in the park. Small spaces felt like we were right on top of our neighbors.
Aug 03, 2015
My only complaint about our stay was that our campsite was WAAAY too small in comparison to the other sites around us. (site 139) I felt we shouldn't have had to pay the same amount as the other sites because it was considerably smaller.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You were near two of our deluxe tent sites which are larger and offer an area for the tent to be set up as well as electricity and in some cases water for only about $6.00 more per night. If there is ever a problem in the park or with a site, please see the office and we'll do all we're able to help
Aug 03, 2015
We brought all of the grand kids for tubing, games, eating, and fun. We all had a great time. We did get hit with hail on Sunday, but that just made it a better story. Thanks!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Hailed like crazy! But your right..... added to the fun. Thankfully no damage!

We had a wonderful relaxing time!!! Had a little hiccup and problem was taken care of. We arrived and Tim greeted us and made us feel welcome. Vickie, Kathie, Eric and all the other employees went above and beyond to delivering wood and overall kindness!!! We enjoyed the tubing on the river and all the activities on the weekend. Thank you again for making our getaway relaxing!!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That's why we're here and we're thrilled you had a good time! Congrats and thanks to Tim and our great staff!

For tent camping it is way too close to one another. otherwise it would be rated higher by us.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Next time check out the 400's.... very popular sites for a tent.
Jul 29, 2015
Grounds and buildings were spotless! The staff were courteous and supportive. I will definitely stay there again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great! We have a great staff and we appreciate your words.

Employees and campers were very helpful and friendly. We had our 5 year old grandson with us and he loved every minute.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great! Our guest having a fun time is why we're here.... young, older and everyone in between. Whole family fun can be found at the Hayward KOA.
Jul 27, 2015
Really liked the campground and all it had to offer, especially the camp kitchen. was disappointed that we were not able to check in when we got in to town at 11:00, I could understand if sites were full and not ready yet but the tent sites were open except for a few.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Prior to having anyone check into any open site, our maintenance crew picks the site for any debris and clean out the fire pit so the arriving guest has a nice clean site.... some days we have up to 190 check-outs and that takes a while to clean, so even if it's vacant, it may not be ready. Thanks
Jul 27, 2015
This is one of my favorite places to camp with my kids. There is not only so much to do just in the campground but also in town. You will never be bored! But unfortunately this past time we camped there, my friends son got blisters from the jumping pillow being so hot! We asked the lady in the office for a bandaid and she told us we would have to buy them! Shouldn't they have a first aid kit?

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The park was very busy with many kiddos enjoying the pillow with no other incidents of blister's reported. We don't give out any first aid supplies as we then take a liability for anothers health. We have new, clean, small first aid kits available for a low cost in the general store. Thanks.
Jul 25, 2015
The outdoor kitchen made it. Beautiful location...tube shuttle was great...can definitely see myself returning. Thanks!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Come visit us again and bring your friends.... we enjoy hosting family reunions as well.

The Cleanest, most friendly campgrounds we have ever stayed at. We have already booked a stay for next year..

it was our first time taking our 3 year old and 10 month old camping. We all had a great time! There were lots of things for us all to do and we loved the wooded campsites!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We appreciate that you chose our park for your first camping trip with your wee ones. Many of our guest return for generations, making lasting memories for years to come. Thanks
