We had three sites for our family. Our five grandchildren loved all the fun activities during the week and weekend. They especially enjoyed the waterslide, the jumping thing, the pool, mini-golf and the playground. The bathrooms were always kept clean and swept out. The staff was extremely helpful in all situations. I would suggest banning four wheelers from driving around the campground.

I was not very pleased with our campsite because we felt like you were trying to just squeeze in one more site. There were 8 in tree stumps all over the place and made it difficult to try to find a space to make it all fit. But we made it work. Our neighbors were very loud and offensive our last night and made a bonfire at 3 am that woke us up, we thought the forest of trees around us were burning

Tent sites were too close together,esp @ $45/nt, which didn't include the waterslide/tubing/jumpy pillow. There were also loud drunk campers nearby until 3a.m. From rdg other reviews, apparently there is a # posted on the door of the store, but I would've had to walk all the way over there, past the drunk campers to get it. The # should be included in ck in materials, or it should be patrolled.

We have security on site. 11 PM quiet hour is enforced. The number is posted at office for any issues. We have an awesome group of campers who frequent our park several times throughout the year. We offer a clean, safe, quiet camping experience which is attested to by the many pages of reviews.

Very family friendly campground. Loved it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very good. Thanks for coming.

This was our first KOA experience so we weren't sure what to expect. Our family really enjoyed it and our boys (7 & 3) LOVED it! Everything was very clean and well maintained and we felt safe letting the boys run around. Very family friendly - we'll be back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Another awesome comment.... thanks so much for staying!

I liked how the bathrooms were constantly being cleaned. We had a wonderful time!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Evey hour and every 15 minutes during heavy usage. Thanks for the comments. We'll pass your thoughts along to our staff.

We had a blast besides the storms and we feel the campgrounds are super close and the wood is expensive but it was cool it got delivered to our campsite. Didn't like that we have to pay for the jumping pillow especially when my kid was barely on it. Everything else was pretty expensive too that's why we didn't do anything else but we did enjoy our campsite and the staff. So thank you!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks, sorry the jumping pillow wasn't used to much.... we just installed a brand new pillow last week. We are currently working to see what can be done with our wood cost. There are very few that supply wood here and we have to pay what is required and that limits us.
Jul 12, 2016
We were placed in a "Deluxe" Tent spot and the spot barely fit our 5 person tent, we were unable to use our Fire pit because it was located between 3 trees and no chairs would fit around it where it was located due to the fact that we were really only inches aware from the Road. We were crammed in there like a bunch of Sardines too. Many of your Campers were snotty & the registration piece SUCKED
Jul 12, 2016
We came in late after the Spooner Rodeo. Staff were pleasant. Bathrooms were not the cleanest.
Jul 12, 2016
Excellent place for kids!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Clean, safe, secured, whole family fun!
Jul 11, 2016
Beautiful and clean. Friendly staff and lots of fun things to do.
Jul 11, 2016
We enjoyed our stay. Disappointed that the waterslide, mini golf, and jumping box were additional expense. This should ALL be included in the stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Many of our guest don't use any or all of the adminities so we've found a one price fits all doesn't work well. We continually are looking for ways to lower our cost and now include up to 4 guest per site in the base price unlike most camp grounds who base the prices on only 2. Thanks
Jul 06, 2016
Very clean and helpful staff
Jul 05, 2016
Teepee 5 isn't the best site because of the traffic to the kitchen, the lights being on after dark, and people cutting through our site, but we are glad we got a site given that booked it last minute. A large group was setting up very late on Friday till after midnight and no staff were around to quiet them down. But otherwise, always a great experience at KOA Hayward and will definitely be back

We enjoyed our stay very much. I do have the complaint of children at the kamp kitchen in the morning. We camped in a tent next to the camp kitchen and we were disruptedin the morning by children fighting and cryin. I understand that its a family campground, but in the morning it would be nice if there could be a rule about children being under better supervision during the a.m.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our quiet hours are posted throughout the park as well as in the map..... the camping kitchen is very popular with our tent campers and is a meeting place for families during breakfast etc. For a quieter place to camp the 150's or 400's are great!
Jun 27, 2016
This is our second time here and we love it. We are already planning our trip next year.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great!
Jun 27, 2016
Had a great time. We got rained out Saturday night. Tent was soaked inside and out so we broke came and headed home. If we were 30 years younger we would have toughed it out. Great memories at Hayward KOA. We'll be back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Even the rain can be fun! Thanks for coming!
Jun 26, 2016
Was a great stay. Little spendy for our one night camping site compared to our other sites throughout our trip. Our wood got stolen & they kindly reimbursed us the next morning. Showers were clean. Great friendly environment!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Other than the wood we're glad you had a great stay! Thanks for coming.
Jun 20, 2016
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....
Jun 20, 2016
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.
Jun 20, 2016
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!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Wonderful idea... we've been thinking of how to have an announcement system placed in the park....
Jun 15, 2016
We had a wonderful stay. All of the employees were awesome!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sweet! Thanks for your business. We enjoy serving you as our guest and making your stay Hayward KOA great!
Jun 14, 2016
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!
Jun 10, 2016
Very clean and the staff very friendly and helpful

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the thoughts.
Jun 07, 2016
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!

Beats expectations every time.

Exceeding the stardards, is our standard! We're glad you noticed. Thanks for the comments.
Jun 01, 2016
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!

Rain inside tee pee.TOOloud on grounds at night after 11 quiet time

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have a 24 hour emergency number posted at the office should there ever be an issue in the park. Please feel free to let us know of any problems.

We always enjoy going to Hayward KOA. There are always great activities to do. We started going there when our kids were small and now are taking our grand children.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your continued business. We look forward to seeing you all again next season!

Clean sites, friendly staff, convenient location, tall pines.

Good! Come back soon. Thanks for the business.
Sep 20, 2015
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.
Sep 09, 2015
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!

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.
