We had the whole tent area to ourselves for 3 nights. What a peaceful spot. All managers/staff were amazingly helpful. Thanks for a great time!

Wonderful experience. Very nice facility, amenities, and staff. Thanks for recommending Iron Mountain Road and The Garlands. They were awesome!!!

Great place, overall. The owners are terrific. Only complaint would be traffic noise (Jake brakes), but probably not much you can do about that.

Very friendly hosts, great amenities for families. Lots of highway noise all night and basic tent sites could be a little flatter, but otherwise great stay.

Beautiful location, but the electricity at our site was not working.


Hi! That's why we refunded the price you paid to have an electric site. :)

The area is very pretty and the camp is well maintained, however, I'm pretty disappointed that there was no mention of the bathrooms being closed for the winter anywhere on the website; diminishing the convenience factor of staying at a KOA camp.


Hi! Please see the bright blue message here: It's been there since Nov 1. I'm so sorry you didn't see it. We do post notices on the office door and at the night registration box. I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. We post our cell numbers too for any needs.

The woman in the office was awesome, very friendly and helpful. The coffee was great and the bathrooms were "spotless". It was nice talking to her about scouting as well. Thank you!

Owner/hosts were friendly and very accommodating. Bathrooms and showers were exceptionally clean. Only complaint is that it is noisy from traffic. Probably not a problem for motor homes but for tents or tent trailers.

I was in an area next to the restrooms that worried me at first because of the potential noise that may have been associated. But instead it was very quiet and noise was not an issue. The staff was very nice the grounds were nice and I was so happy to have a great pace to stay.

Hello, very very friendly and helpful staff. good breakfast! Nice tent side! bad bed weather :-)
Aug 22, 2016
Perfect stop on our road trip, our tent site was in the woods away from the other campers. The facilities were in full working order and clean.
Aug 21, 2016
Staff was very friendly, facilities were clean and breakfast was delicious!

The tent sites here were gravel pads. This campground was quiet and dark, I slept so good! But you definitely need a flashlight for walking to the bathroom. Nice bath house.
Aug 15, 2016
Great Campground. Lots of trees, clean and friendly owners.
Aug 15, 2016
It was fine, but there were a few things we didn't like. Only one bathroom, and the tent sites were relegated to second-class citizens. The water pressure was too low. But it was clean and good.


Thank you for your feedback! We ourselves are tenters and think the tent sites are beautiful. I'm not sure why you would have experienced low water pressure and I'm sorry about that! Thank you for staying with us.

Had great time camping at this Koa. The staff were fantastic. Their pizzas were great and delivered to your campsite. Breakfasts were awesome and very cheap. My only drawback was that a pity not a toiket block at the rear of the camp ground bit of a hike during the night.

As with most KOA's the facilities were very clean and the staff was extremely friendly. Unknown to us was a county wide burn ban and we were prepared to feed our group of 16 off of the grill. The staff here saved the day by allowing us to use their personal gas grill for which we were tremendously grateful. Talk about customer service!!!!


Thank you for the lovely feedback. It was such a pleasure to have you here!!

Great place to camp.

Great customer service. Look forward to visiting again.

The rocks/crushed gravel for the tent sites was a little hard for my family but I didn't mind it.
Jul 23, 2016
The tent sites are much more private than at other KOA's I've stayed at which I really appreciated. I also enjoyed the breakfast options they had.
Jul 23, 2016
Loved the tent sites. They were roomy and well spaced. Bathrooms were clean and updated. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Showers were clean, tent site was well kept. Road noise wasn't too bad.

Clean facilities and having breakfast every morning were both welcome at such an affordable site. Everyone at the office/store was very pleasant and helpful.


Thank you for the wonderful feedback!

Excellent campsite; clean, wonderful amenities, friendly and helpful staff!
Jul 10, 2016
Hot Springs KOA was excellent. The kids loved the pool, the playground, and the free mini golf. The bathrooms and showers were the cleanest and nicest of any we saw on our trip. And the staff was very helpful and friendly, definitely going above and beyond the norm to give us a good experience. We would definitely go back!

my complaint about this KOA's tent camping area is the mud. it was so muddy every time you took a step an inch of mud stuck to your shoes. our Shoes, tents, chairs, motorcycles and the carpets in our cars were covered in mud the consistency of dog poop. I know you can't control the weather but you can control the condition of your campsites. I have never been denied a full refund at any other KOA.


Thank you for your feedback! We had a couple of unprecedented rain storms this summer that dropped a lot of rain in a short time, which is why we have gravel at the sites. KOA has a National Refund Policy which we follow. Thank you for staying with us.

Loved this KOA. There were lots of trees between the tent sites which gave a bit of privacy when wanted. The pool was great, showers were free and bathrooms were always clean. Rose was very knowledgable when we had questions and suggested places to go for us. The pancake breakfast was cheap and delicious. We stayed 3 nights. Loved all of it.

Don't understand why we couldn't set up our tent an hour early, had set up in the dark! No wood for fire pit!


Thank you for your feedback! Unfortunately I don't know what happened with your request to set up your tent early. That should not have been an issue at all and I am very sorry if it was made an issue. We also have plenty of wood available so I'm sorry that was an issue as well! Thank you!
