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.


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.

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.


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.


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

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.

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.

Lovely big trees and great camping kitchen!

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...

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.

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

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.

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 :)

I would recommend this campsite to people who like a lot of loud activities. Music and movies were played at a volume between 7pm and 10:30pm that no camper could miss. Bring earplugs if you would like to sleep before 11:00PM. Camp during the week if you would like a quieter stay. Positives; great playground, pool, and water slide for the kids, very friendly, helpful staff. Clean facilities.

Our family had so much fun tons to do on Saturdays.

We have made this a yearly trip and will continue to do so. I do have to say that this year was not the same. In the past hayrides were at a specific time and every day, ice cream was the same way. Some of the staff was the same friendly faces but there were others that did not have the KOA friendliness. Not sure why, but it didn't feel as welcoming as in the past.

It was our first official camping away from the backyard trip & my family loved it! The kids were always busy with the playground, pool, waterslide, or the favorite bouncy pillow. My husband and I got a chance to hang out with the kids and relax by the fire, we couldn't have asked for a better first camping trip!
Jul 22, 2013
This was our first stay and we had a wonderful time. Our daughter had a blast! This is definitely a new annual family tradition!
Jul 22, 2013
Very awesome place! This was our first time coming...would reccomend to everybody.

This was our second year staying with the Hayward KOA and we had a blast. We will continue to camp there for years to come.

We were only able to stay one night at KOA in Hayward with our two small children, but it was great. There were actually too many activities we wanted to do and just couldn't fit them in one night,so I would recommend two nights at least. The site was shady, maybe too close to other campers though. The bathrooms were clean, available and close by. We felt safe.

This KOA is awesome when it is not crowded - freshly painted, lots of activities and is family/pet friendly. The staff is friendly and helpful. But on a busy weekend like July 4th, it is claustrophobic and impossible to keep the facilities clean. When it is crowded, it the restrooms & showers are inadequate & dirty. Needs more showers with attached dressing areas; and shelves on bathroom walls.
Jul 12, 2013
Incredibly helpful, friendly staff! Love it there.
Jul 11, 2013
The water slide and tubing close way too early for the summertime. At least have them open until 7pm not 430pm. We were not able to take advantage of these d/t how early they closed and the other things to do in the area.
Jul 09, 2013
Definitely not a family campground anymore, we have been coming for at least 10 years, this was the first time we were disappointed. Bathrooms were always dirty staff not as friendly, moved our reservation site so our family couldn't stay by each other, lights were always on at night, no one to tell everyone to be quite after quite time. Will not be coming back,Too bad we really liked coming here
