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: http://koa.com/campgrounds/hot-springs/. 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.

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.

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.

Great Campground. Lots of trees, clean and friendly owners.

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!!!!

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.

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.

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!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

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!

The Hot Springs KOA is a very nice campground in a great location.
Jun 26, 2016
The bathrooms and pool were very clean and well maintained. The tents sites being on their own is nice. All of the staff was friendly and helpful
Jun 18, 2016
Clean! Beautiful and private camp sites. Friendly service!
Jun 18, 2016
We really enjoyed our time here. We were in a tent campsite that looked out through the pines to a small pond below. It was beautiful and my sons didn't want to leave!
Jun 08, 2016
We loved it! The staff was in "transition" to new owners. Everyone was friendly, supportive and helpful. They made sure we got the BEST tent camp site!

nice facility, some road noise
Sep 08, 2015
Very friendly and clean. The campground was quiet. The WIFI signal was a little weak and it was a little far from town, but not too bad.
Aug 29, 2015
Very nice KOA but the campsite we were at was directly behind a cabin and no one else was in the area until late and that was the cabin people were given instead of one farther from us. Very noisy so in order to get some quiet we had to move our tent to another site at 11:00 that night. Camp host should have separated us more. Poor judgment on placement.

The stay was great
