Nice campsites
Aug 20, 2014
This was my 2nd time visiting the KOA in Hayward and we had a good time. There were a lot of additions to the campground since the first time we stayed & while we enjoyed the extra activities we were disappointed that everything besides the pool & playground cost extra money. I have 4 children so as you can imagine it did get expensive. That would be my only complaint. Camping kitchen a huge plus!

The minute I pulled into Hayward Koa, I knew it was going to be a mess. The cabin I stayed in the prev. yr & reserved a year in advance ad been moved..and in its place was a log. When I checked in the comp froze up. I was told to come back later. When checking out They had me down to leave the next day and said theyd refund me. Ive left 3 messages for the owners & havent got a call!!!!

Terrific activities for the kids.

We had yet another fantastic stay at the Hayward Wisconsin KOA. The only thing I wish they had that they don't is a hot tub. Other than that the rest is perfect. We will definitely be back again.

This KOA is a wonderful place to stay especially with children. There were many activities and the staff was friendly and helpful. The maintenance man went above and beyond in assisting me. I reserved one of the new "tipis" and it leaked terribly when it began to rain. The tent floor and all my bedding was wet and I had water dripping on my head and pillow. I was disappointed with my accommodatio

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your comments..Checking the weather forecast before a planned tipi stay is always a good idea. Usually the tipis are pretty good in the rain, except with the downpours, like the last couple days. We hope the rest of your stay was good. Next time check out one of our kabins or a new lodge.

The staff did not tell us anything about the KOA at check in except our site number. They mistakenly gave our site to someone else. We later asked when the mini golf closed and we were told that it closed at 9:15 because they were having glow golf after dark. We decided to go to glow golf but found out the glow golf ended at 9:15 not the regular golf. We had already put out our fire for the night

We very much enjoyed our stay. I would like to say I am a manager at a casino in WI. You have very happy employees. What ever your doing to make them happy keep it up. It made our experience great. The couple you had Sat. night doing games and DJ were above and beyond great!! Wish all my employees glowed as yours do!! :)

We really appreciate your comments. We pride ourselves in our staff and place so much of this park's success in what they labor at daily. I'll pass your thoughts along. Thanks again.

This is an annual trip for myself and family. Stayed in a lodge cabin this year. It was great. Everything you need and more. Next year will be even better, I will know what not to bring. Which will make it easier to go. Great place for kids, they just love it all.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you...so many of our guests have a great time and we're glad you were among them!

It had been twenty years since I brought my kids here when they were little. Now there grown up and have kids of there own we thought we would go there again. We are from up by the city of Superior, but it will probably be another twenty years before we come back . Some of the retired guys you have there should stay retired or learn some people skills. Your prices are pretty high just for a tent.

1st stay at a KOA! Very busy place. We tent, smaller sites too close together for our taste. Bathrooms were clean. We didn't like all the fees for the extras, prefer one wrist band the entire time we are camping instead of kids always asking for $. Not a lot of organized activities on the grounds. Tubing was fun and kids liked the water slide!

Great place for a family with young children. The staff are always friendly. We really love camping here, thank you!

Pros: Owner from Denver was very nice. Walked over to our site to inform us about the approaching storm. Cons: Initial check in employee was not friendly or helpful. Bathrooms were in very poor condition - Cold water in sink did not work Extremely crowded space - everyone is packed so close together. It made parking very difficult
Jul 28, 2014
Impressed by helpfulness of staff. Bit dissappointed as were told when booked deluxe cabin would be an oven and TV. It was an adjustment to rework the meals planned for an oven. Also suggest you put information sheet regarding the location of the air mattress pump,was too late to call the office first night when set up bed, hot water did not last long enough to even do our dishes but managed

Thank you for all your KOA staff members efforts toward making this a great Kamping location.

Thank you for your business. Come again soon.

would have given 5 stars except for bathrooms and showers were a bit dirty and smelly

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your comments....the bathrooms are a challenge but we'll keep working on them. Visit again soon.

Had a great time aside from my husbands cell phone being stolen from the men's bathroom.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the the phone, but glad you enjoyed the time here at our park. Thanks.
Jul 22, 2014
The campground was very nice. It offered many activities. We will never rent a tipi again. We had the worst night ever.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed the campground. Sorry you weren't fond of the tipi. Our new lodges have all the critter comforts which might work a little better. Thanks.

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.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts. We appreciate when our guest lets us know what they're thinking.
Jul 14, 2014
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.
Jul 14, 2014
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.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. The way we look at our park is ...How would we wish to see and visit it if we were the guest... We appreciate you thoughts and we're glad you enjoyed yourselves. Visit again soon.

Best KOA experience I ever had.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. We get so many positive comments from our guests. We really appreciate you noticing and we're glad you enjoyed your stay.

We really enjoyed our stay, friendly staff, clean facilities, and great accommodations.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We'll pass on your comments. Thanks.

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.
Jun 23, 2014
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.
Jun 22, 2014
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!
Jun 12, 2014
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
Sep 02, 2013
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.
Sep 01, 2013
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.
Aug 27, 2013
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.
