Interior roads were very poor, no effort to improve them. Also poor directional signs internally, and no escort to our assigned site. Verl "low class" overall.

Some confusion with reservations...very hilly campground with difficulty for larger RV's. We were in the midst of long-term campers that left early for work as they fired up their diesel pickups.

There is only one bathroom in the entire campground with showers, and unfortunately it was not in service until day 2. We were charged for everything: Ice cream, pancakes, bingo. No other KOA (and that's all we stay at) has ever charged for those activities. Rude, unhelpful office staff. Drunk workers diving in the pool when it says no diving. Great example for kids. So much more/no space left.

Nice area and clean.

The campground was okay. When we checked in, the sales person informed us that the public bathrooms were closed and the pool will be closed all weekend. After being in the heat all day Saturday, my kids were disappointed that the pool was not open.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay. Our Kabin was spotless, as was the one from last summer. The additional amenities (bathroom, fridge, microwave & tv) were really great to have. The fish in the lake, however, proved to be quite sly and uncooperative. (Sneaky buggers!!) But we had fun trying to catch them, anyway. We also enjoyed the karaoke and bingo games.

This KOA is relatively small compared to most. They do have a unique trampoline-type structure the kids will love. This KOA seems to be more for just relaxing at your cabin than to do any activities. The cabins are air-conditioned, which is wonderful. The adult staff is very pleasant.

Staff was nice and "John" was very apologetic about the showers being out of commission, would stay there again.

Pool not working. No lead to site, showers/restrooms could use an update.

7 day stay. While larger sites were available, we had an extremely small site. Our standard patio mat extended into the next site down a bank. Roads need work.

people drive way to fast thru out this campground. camp store is really lacking supplies. Love the dog run and the lady at the desk when I checked in was great. Road coming in and out way to many bumps.

Pool was closed because of an accident. That was a great disappointment once it was a super hot summer day. The site we stayed at with the RV #78 didnĀ“t have a good sewer system. The water kept running out of the pipe. Not good at all.

This was our 9th visit this beautiful campground. The previous owner were very good, but the new owners are fantastic. The did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. We can't thank them enough.

cabin #97 was awesome. The view was great and the extended porch (due to the angle of the cabin) was excellent. The bathrooms left a lot to be desired. The first night I wanted a shower and the bathroom smelled and the floors were wet, the second day was okay, and the third day the bathrooms were out of order because they were all backed up.

Good time. Friendly staff. Friendly people. Nice ammenities.

Very nice campground and very friendly staff.

A slightly better stay. Ran into a difficulty using my VKR points as a discount upons checking in, but it all worked out OK. July 4 karaoke was fun. Unfortunately, men's restroom flooded yet again, making it impossible to use. Staff seems frustrated over this recurring problem. Hope to return when all is fixed.

Good no problem

An OK stay. I probably had the least-favorite cabin (#98) as it had very poor lighting at night and no readily available water source (neighboring cabins did). Also, my cabin had no picnic table upon check-in (they delivered one on the second day), while all others did. Sewage system in men's room was bad. Staff is nice, but often distracted.

The tent sight I was on needs a new platform. Everything else was fine.
Jul 08, 2013
Toilets and showers were not clean. Bugs crawling everywhere. Site was too low to allow easy dump access. Dusty and pool was closed indefinitely. Plus at $54 it was no bargin.

We never stayed here. Extended our stay at Virginia Beach KOA which was awesome and drove straight Home
Jul 07, 2013
Worst KOA I've been too, bathrooms not cleaned nor very good to begin with (they clogged ontop of it and were useless for part of the stay no apology etc, pool had issues and was closed for part of the stay, just generally not a good campground let alone a KOA. Can't believe they won a Presidental Award 15 years ago. Wonder who they bribed.

There was a lot to keep my children occupied with the playground, pool, jumping pillow (their favorite), and lake. However, the bathrooms were often clogged and extremely dirty. The campground also had a sewage smell especially around the lake. The lake was pretty gross and nobody was receiving any bites/catches. There was no grass around any of the sites and it was a muddy mess after the rain

Cabin sites are too close together. Neighboring campers had to walk across out site in order to reach their cabin site. A very cramped campground. We left a day early and stayed at a nearby hotel. No more KOA stays for us.

Great staff, very nice. The place itself was pretty dirty - the lake filthy, the rental boats unattended for days, bits of trash here and there. The site itself is very nice if not too crowded. Great pool.

Only stayed 1 night, passing through. Facilities were good, enjoyed the small pool.
Jul 01, 2013
Problem with cable TV but this was not the campgrounds fault
Jul 01, 2013
We had a nice stay and hope to enjoy this and other koas in the future. Love the cabin. This was our first time. The camp itself seemed a little tired and old in spots, but clean, very clean. I appreciated that.
Jul 01, 2013
We love KOAs but this one was a real disappointment. The staff was wonderful, I should point that out right away. BUT the place overall needed to be cleaned desperately! The lake was filthy and had garbage and dozens of filthy water balloons floating in it. The boats were filthy. Bathrooms could use a bleaching and on & on.
