Campground Reviews

John & Cathy were very personable and very willing to please us. The restroom/showers were always clean & tidy. The pool was very refreshing after a day of sightseeing.

First thing when we got there and set up, we couldn't connect the water since the part was the wrong one. This is a new camper and our first time out with it. John had the right part and helped set it up. It was very pleasant and relaxing and we can't wait to come back. Thank you very much.

The most important thing about a campground is the bathroom. This was the cleanest bathroom out of all the koa kampgrounds i've stayed in. The people that ran it John and Cathy were very nice and they were there when we needed anything. We will go back.....

We were rookies to KOA...it was amazing! We loved everything about it!

The facilities are what we expect from a KOA. What took us off guard was the attitude of the owner/staff - upon check in, we were rudely asked why we were late and when leaving, the owner of the grounds actually cut us off while we were pulling out of the lot. We stay at KOA's for the friendly people, and were disappointed at Hot Springs.

The campsites were a little small. We were unable to put our awning out if we had wanted and not a lot of room for the kids to run around and play. But we were there to visit other attractions so we were not at the campsite much so it served its purpose. Very clean bathrooms and pool area.

The staff was not very friendly. Didn't feel very welcome. The facility was OK, but probably would not come back because we didn't feel welcome. Staff seemed to answer questions in a guarded manor. We just quit going to the campground store.

Very clean great staff!! Enjoyed our stay. Beautiful area. Would come back again.

Very nice park. Spacious, quiet and well located in a beautiful area. Well maintained. Friendly, courteous staff. We generally try to stay exclusively at KOA's. This is one of the better parks we have camped in.

Great place to stay that was close enough to monuments but far enough away from all the tourist traffic.

This is not a campground for individuals that have a disability or have difficulty walking. The sites are graveled, the main complex/restrooms are elevated on a hill above the campsites, no sidewalks leading to and from sites to main complex and trash dispensers are nonexistent at each campsite. The guests are expected to walk up "the hill" to get rid of their trash. Very inconvenient.

We rented 2 cabins & the numbers were on the confirmation, when we checked in we did not get one of the cabinets we reserved but given a cabin in the very back of the camp ground. When confronted about this they did not make it right. This was our 2nd stay at this KOA..only because of the cabin issue..it will be our last. Over all everything was clean.

staff friendly and accommodating, location close enough to attractions but far enough to be quiet, idyllic setting in trees.
Aug 11, 2013
We found the camp sites VERY UNEVEN where we were.
Aug 10, 2013

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your feedback. You were here during a high peak time when a lot of bikers used the bathroom. In addition, due to the heavy rain, gravel at some sites unfortunately washed away & the floor of our outdoor eatery couldn't help but get muddy. Comments from guests on the food were all great
Aug 08, 2013
Extremely clean. Staff was extraordinarily helpful. Addition of pancake breakfast and pizzas was a plus

Great location and very accommodating owners. My only comment would be with no access to any over the air TV stations, cable should be offered.

The bathrooms were immaculate, the service fine, the food great, the pool's nice, but the sites are not level, giving many campers difficulty, including me.

Cabins were clean and nicely located with both shade and sun. The 24 hour laundry and breakfast were great to have available.

Clean Clean Clean - so very important when traveling! Love the sites. Love the wind whispering through the pines at the end of a long day of travel. Thank you.

Stayed in a cabin and that was ok. It was clean. Bathrooms were clean. Burn ban was on while we were here, which is understandlable. They have grills next to each campsite but couldn't use them. Luckily we had a campstove & a saucepan along so we could boil our hotdogs for supper, was disppointing. Pool was nice for the kids.
