Cabin Reviews

Jul 13, 2015
LOVED the addition of a small bathroom to the one-room cabins! A few tweaks and they will be perfect. The grounds and people were great. I would stay here again.

Only problem was no hot water for shower in the deluxe cabin we stayed in.

Stay was wonderful and very family oriented. Tracy and Beth were very welcoming and kind. My family and I will be back soon! My daughter loved the pool which was very well maintained. Cabin was perfect and well equipped. Can't forget to mention the pancake breakfast. Madison KOA Awesome!!!

The campground was nice and the staff was friendly. The pool was clean and the fishing pond was very accessible. The large laundry facilities made it nice not having to wait on a washer. The only negative was maybe the bathrooms could have been kept up with a little more. Overall it's a nice campground and would stay again.

Me and my family were traveling to Philadelphia from Wisconsin to take my girls to there fathers for the summer. I really wanted to fit camping into the two weeks I had them and wasn't able. Then I found this camp sight that was literally on the way !!! Everything was perfect. We had an absolute blast !!!!! And the rates were great couldn't be more happy about our stay and am planning to come back

Kids had a blast on at the playground and pool. Nice little escape from the world. Would def stay again.

We would have appreciated someone telling us about the tornado and where we could take shelter. Would the bath house have been safe? A scarey night. We decided to crawl under the bed, which was a little dusty. How do you plan for such acts of God? Please let me know. I plan to stay in KOA campgrounds in the near future.


It was our first tornado warning in my 11 yrs here. We road around looking for anyone out to tell them we were gathering at the bathhouse, and i also suggested the fire hall in Madison. Few did show, but we did gather at the bathhouse.We will add it to our welcome sheet, in case again in the future.

Our stay at the Madison KOA was a great experience. Plenty of activities for the whole family, but relaxing at the same time.
May 14, 2015
We enjoyed our stay. There was a lot of things the kids could do.

We got there half hour early and had to wait till cabin was cleaned. The cabin was great. The staff was very friendly

This KAO has a very nice staff; however I must say this was one of the least prepared KOA I have ever stayed. The cabin was heated with 2 space heaters one of which didn't work. The roads at the campground was very muddy and there was tons of trash behind our cabin.

Our stay was absolutely wonderful! We normally stay with family when we come to town but not anymore! We plan to see you again very soon.


We are so "happy" you enjoyed your stay :)

VERY CLEAN. The cabin was lovely, and the staff was kind. The pumpkin patch up the road a bit was a nice find. We were sad to see the amount of feral kittens running around, we left out boxes with blankets in them during our stay, but had to take them away as so our cabin didn't look unkempt when we left. Luckily, the lady at the front desk told us they're attempting to trap and rehome them.

The cabin was filthy and smelled horrible. I did not sleep at all and left as soon as sun came up. Garbage truck picked up large trash containers at 1am! I realize the no frills kabins are minimal but I have stayed at koa in Niagra falls and that cabin was clean and very close to well lit bathroom. The cost for that one? $43 I feel like a sucker for paying $62 for this mess.

So much to do and enjoy. Loved it.
Sep 04, 2014
Stay was great. Cabin was beautiful in a nice setting. Enjoyed musing the pool. Definitely a place to stay in the area. We were there visiting family and was a great time.

Was nice campground/kabin. Only thing was that the outdoor grill that was at our cabin site was unusable because of water and debris laying in it. It stunk like sewage so we refused to prepare food on it, so we had to run to WalMart and purchase a small tabletop charcoal grill for our cooking needs.

I loved the bouncey ball

We enjoyed our stay. Loved the fact that we had our own bathroom a plus! If I could've wished for 2 things: the cabin to be fumigated before stay- scared spiders getting in our ears or biting when sleeping. 2nd a small garbagecan and a couple more towel racks. ...guess that was 3 :-) All in all geat stay! Will be back for sure

Cabins are close together and the bathrooms could use an update but are clean. We would stay again if in the area.

Had a deluxe cabin for four nights. It had a slight slant and the microwave turned itself on a few times so we unplugged it. People who worked there were friendly & helpful. Place was clean but not much to do there. I just think it was a bit "PRICEY" for what you get. The trailer sites looked too small and cramped and on top of each other as well as too close to the cabin we were in.


We replaced the microwave. We plan activities for every summer wkend, unfortunately everyone is busy and do not attend, and so it makes it hard to even have Bingo.

Cute cabin. Loved the jumping pillow!!!

The place was fantastic, very clean cabins & surroundings, but the ladies washroom was a bit of a mess hence I gave a 4 stars.
Aug 03, 2014
People were nice, campground was clean. Bathrooms were spotless.
Jul 26, 2014
There was no supervision for the pool and playground area, no extra stuff for the kids, and the cabin needs an overhaul, new couch, etc


It is a fairly new couch; we see no problem with it. We had planned activities that weekend,the children didn't join in the afternoon. Enough just don't join in and then we can't play the evening bingo.
Jul 24, 2014
we have stayed at your KOA years ago and really enjoyed the family atmosphere. this time, there were not enough activities for the kids and there was nobody enforcing any of the rules. It seems like you have decided that the "seasonal pull throughs" are more important than the "campers". The cabins were not cleaned as we had to sweep our porch and deck and pick up trash left by whoever was there
Jul 22, 2014
had an amazing time. It was our 1st anniversary Debbie was nice to set up tables for Us. The staff was very nice. Even escorted one of my guess to our cabin. The place was clean with many things to do. . Our cabin was clean and everything in working order. Bingo nite was fun. We did the air pillow FUN! my husband will post it one day in his music video Rudiwumakeke on YouTube thx for the stay
Jul 22, 2014

Very well maintained campground. Bathrooms were not cleaned on at least one of the days we were there but everything else was great. The pancake breakfast was a great treat for our kids. They loved it.
Jul 14, 2014
the people were very friendly they didn't freak out if people were up past curfew. the cabin we stayed in was nice and clean. the bathrooms were clean the pool was clean we had a good time.. <3

as usual i had a wonderful stay at a KOA. when ever i travel i always find out first if there is a KOA with a camp cabin available before I would ever consider going to a motel. I think that KOA cabins are the best vacation value there is. I am planning a trip to the Mystic Ct area and am definitely going to stay at the Mystic KOA for my trip. KOA makes good vacations GREAT.
Jul 04, 2014
We loved the area. The only thing I would say is the cabins did not seem very clean.
Jun 30, 2014
The KOA site itself was clean. My problem lies in the false advertising. The separate bedroom housed a double bed not a queen bed, as stated in the advertisement and the "fold out couch" was a beat and torn futon and not a fold out couch at all. Disappointing to say the least.
Jun 29, 2014
it always a pleasure . feel at home, super clean and excellent staff
Jun 28, 2014
Quiet, clean, comfortable, good bed in our cabin.
Jun 25, 2014
We got in late. The night check in was fine, except the key wouldnt work in our cabin. Luckily, there were workers out at the pool fixing something and i was able to get a key from them that did work. Our cabin was clean and comfortable.
