Area surrounding the pool extreme safety hazzard; The young staff in the country store and cafe were very nice and helpful....One grumpy general manager upset us a little when he wouldn't let us move a table by the pool to be closer to where our little grandsons were swimming instead of on the deep end of the pool. Lay out is good and place was clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are a presidental award winning campground and our sparkling clean swimming pool is enjoyed by hundreds of campers every season. The manager and staff will encourage campers to keep a watchful eye on young swimmers. Tables cannot be blocking the walkway around the pool area.

Compared to other KOA's this site needs some tender loving care. The pool is sad with its astroturf ripped patio. The bathrooms need some serious updating. Too much money for so little.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have the replacement of the carpeting around the pool slated for Spring 2014. We are a presidential award winning campground and we have sparkling clean restrooms. We offer free bike rental. We also have free wifi and free cable tv. We have a cafe available for breakfast. Alot of perks.

Seems to be overpriced for the quality of product.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are a presidental award winning campground and we are comparably priced for the area. We provide full service and also have free wifi and free cable tv. We also have free bike rental. We have a full service breakfast in our cafe. We also have a free swimming pool. Lots of perks!

I cant totally fault the KOA, but it was hot, mosquito infested, power went out twice the night we were there. Overnight is ok, but I would never stay there again and couldn't recommend it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The power failure was due to a motorist on the highway that hit a pole. As in areas such as shorelines and areas near water mosquitos are a challenge. You need to protect yourselves with bug repellent in these areas. It also has been a very wet summer season. August in the Midsouth can be quite hot.

Salle de bain propre, manque de crochet pour les douches et salle de bain. Piscine ordinaire ( tapis pelouse pas propre) Les sites corrects.

It was quiet but before I could enjoy watching the news there was. Power failure that lasted fro one and half hours. The water valve needs to be replaced. Other then that it was good.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The power outage was due to a serious accident with a car hitting the power pole on the nearby highway. Power was restored pretty quickly.

Dim the lights in the camping area a little would be nice

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have a normal lit park as we are required to have. Most campers want a well lit park to move around easily at night.

Sites were on the small side, we could not put out our awning. Firepit was right beside where you park.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have sites available of all sizes. We will move campers around if they prefer bigger sites. All one has to do is ask. As we have no way of knowing if we are not informed.

We are proud to be a presidental award winning campground. Known for our clean restrooms. Just check out the other reviews that praise our staff and note our clean restrooms. There is no mildew in bathhouses as they are sparkling clean.

Overall a very nice campground. Owner(s) were pleasant. Outside grounds people and escort could not do enough. My only issue was first night arrival, young lady that checked us in needs a wee bit more customer service training. Again, if we go back to the Memphis area we will stay at this campground again.

It's an old campground and they don't take very good care of it. The pull-throughs were very narrow. And the fee was very high.
Aug 23, 2013
We had a wonderful stay here. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The facility was well laid out and very clean. We will be back

$50.00 Pet Fee!!! We choose to stay at KOA Campgrounds for the usual Pet Friendly policy, however, at this Site, the Pet Fee was actually higher than the Cabin Fee! The cabins are very close to the Highway: lots of road noise made it a hard to sleep night. Spiders and mosquitoes inside the cabin made it very uncomfortable, including a wasp's nest on the porch

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our cabin pet fee is $ 1.00 per night. The $50.00 pet security deposit is returned at checkout. As was this campers deposit. Our cabins are cleaned and sprayed each day as they are high volume. This camper did not even come in and tell anyone their issues. We are open to 9:00 pm.

Too costly. Not friendly or helpfull Too much road noise

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are a presidental award winning campground with a friendly staff we are proud of. We are comparably priced for the area and have free cable and free wifi which other parks around here do not have. We also have a swimming pool and general store and a cafe.

GOOD LOCATION. EZ ACCESS TO I-55. SHADY LOTS. CONVENIENT TO MEMPHIS ATTRACTIONS.

Very noisy campground... Train runs every hour on the hour ALL NIGHT LONG...

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

There are train tracks a mile away. They are freight trains. They do not run every hour on the hour.

Nice KOA, clean and very well kept. Breakfast was good and the people in the office helpful. Loved the fact we could take a tour bus into the city so we didnt have to take RV.

Great campground, but the showers could use a little work...maybe some of the staff might take a shower there and figure out where they need more hooks and where the drain is loose and likely to cut. Also they need to put a sign on the dryers to use high heat...$4 to dry a load of clothes is highway robbery!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are very proud of our clean restrooms and get lots of compliments on them. Our dryers are $2.00 to dry a normal load of laundry. Sometimes overloading the dryer you will need more coins. Our 24 hr laundry is very popular with our campers.

I would not recommend this camp ground for people with tents. The tent area is right next to the highway. Along with the noise from the trucks there is the train line as well and it's virtually impossible to sleep. The rec room needs extender hours, closing at 6 is far to early. Perhaps close with the shop at 9am.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The recreation hall and game room closes at 8:00pm not 6:00 this time of year. We have a tenting area behind the office for campers use that has water and electric away from the road.

Nice campground but dusty, dusty, dusty. We asked about concrete pads when we called but were told that all sites were gravel - but when we arrived some sites did have concrete. Either we were too large for them or they are not used for overnight guests - not sure which - but it would have been nice to have had that clarified instead of being told there weren't any.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We boast 70 ft big rig sites very popular with campers. Guests love that they don't have to unhitch their rig. We have sites that are gravel. Some of the sites have limited concrete surface. Southern weather changes daily here. Dry one day wet the next.

Was not as nice as other KOA's. Would have been nice to have grass around the picnic table area instead of rocks. Hosts were very friendly and helpful.
Aug 17, 2013
After driving for 12 hours pull in KOA and given sight 2B was escorted to sight. Plugged in, Slides out, cable hooked up and then realized no power to motor home. Called office - fortunately staff still there. They came right away but we had to move to another sight. Staff noted they had had some trouble with that plug. that sight should not have been given. I do want to commend the staff.

Stayed here to visit Memphis and with suggestions from owner saw other area attractions. Nicely kept andcomfortable.
Aug 16, 2013
Nice campground. Too bad we could only stay a few hours. We were on our way home from Sturgis. This was our second night here as we stopped on the way up to South Dakota too.

The Mosquitos in the park were terrible and the dog park obviously hasn't been mowed in long time. The kids had fun on a few of the banana bikes but of about 12 they have only 4 worked.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The banana bikes are enjoyed for no charge and we only own six not twelve. The dog park has been mowed and this summer the grass is growing at a rate of six inches a week. Last week was a very rainy week.All is well now.

I'll have to rethink staying at any more KOA since i was charged a fee for bringing my pets along. I stay at a lot of campgrounds and never have been charged a pet fee any where else

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have a great dog park and a great dog walk for the small fee of $1.00 a pet. We feel as pet owners ourselves being able to bring along our pets is a small price to pay. Kennels charge $25.00 a night and one time campgrounds don't allow pets at all. The pet park has to be maintained daily.
