Had a complaint about a/c in cabin they checked it and nothing was wrong and the entire time it was the battery's in the thermostat. Deluxe cabin was a little smaller than the last time we rented at KOA. Activities were great, kids really enjoyed. Place is ok, not sure I would return.


I'm very sorry about the air. I had a call into our RV repair man. We were hoping the fans could help till he could get there. WE were thankful you were a air repair man and knew to check the batteries in the thermostat! That was great !We were Thankful. We are glad your children enjoyed their wkend

This KOA is nice but the swimming pool is filthy. More sand in the pool than on the playground. The septic system leach bed is behind the cabins. The owners are never seen. The store is frequently closed. Very lame if any activities. No "camper" spirit. This KOA has gone downhill and is far from corporate standards. Cleaning lady enters mens restroom unannounced.


Pool was clean!The filter had a issue sending sand out,would have devastated all if i closed to repair, not harmful. store was open 9-9. Was HOT, minimal children showed for activities, but did for polar plunge, Tye dye, bingo,and DJ

We got a cabin- very nice, very comfortable however the bathroom was not cleaned and was quite dirty (toilet and tub). Everything else was great.

Everything was good except the weather and my son's clothes got stolen out of the bathroom.

We had a blast! This is a wonderful KOA in a gorgeous area. I would highly recommend it! We had a slight issue with our cabin when we arrived and it was taken care of and we were beyond pleased with the outcome. Thanks KOA for another memorable stay!

The sofa beds in the deluxe cabins could stand to be replaced because the mattress was folding up on the kids but other than that I was a wonderful stay and the cabin was perfect for the family. Warm and cozy. The bounce pillow was a hit with our boys.

We arrived late and they had the heat and the light on in our cabin. Debi is very thoughtful and always friendly when we stay there.

Very nice cabins and location. One night the women s bathrooms got kind of dirty, so we went and told Beth. She sent over housekeeping right away. Later when my wife went back over they had been cleaned. Very impressed. We did occasionally, get a slight whiff of sewer or something, but it went away as quickly as it came. We really liked it here and would stay again.

Extremely poorly managed. Not a typical KOA. Cabin was full of spider webs and insects. Old broken equipment. A big lake that's 12" deep if that. No fish. Used to be a great place. Now its a dump.

We had a great visit my son had a great time only down fall the bed in.the cabin was hard. And our site was close to.the sewage and had a constant sewer smell. Everyone was very pleasant we were in contact with.

Nice stay. Bad sewer smell and very nasty swearing neighbors stopped it from being 5 star.

Our girls had so much fun! I was able to let them have independence but I could still see them from our cabin. The cabin was very clean and the staff were pleasant and attentive.

That was so great camping place. We hope more places for tent or more cabin.

My stay was wonderful, this is the best KOA that I've stayed at so far! The campground was clean and organized, the activities were fantastic, and the staff was always friendly and courteous. I will definitely be staying here again next time I'm in the Pittsburgh area. Great location with easy access to the highway to get to Pittsburgh and Fallingwater!

Cabin was 212 was very small,not private, location was far from kids area (had a 6 year old and a small baby with me), THE SMELL WAS HORRIFIC!!!!! STINCH OF SEWAGE FOR 3 days!! We had previously stayed at cabin 205 the previous week AND LOVED IT! Very disappointed and HIGHLY unlikely we will return to this location.

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.
Jul 13, 2015
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.
