Good people
May 16, 2016
Very clean. Friendly and helpful staff.

The barn that used to host movies is filled with wood and the new owners personal household items (which is tacky). I miss the movies. A small area remained where they tried to cram people in for arts/crafts and other activities, but it was uncomfortable. The new pool is nice but it was cold. And I miss the elevated "deck" area for those who wanna just chill by the pool and not get splashed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your comments. We made the decision to assure dry wood. Few people attended the movies but will work out something for next year. We are hopeful to have a new game/gathering room in the future.

Campground is cleaner and better kept than in the past, but bathrooms are very old and you cant walk from the pool to the restrooms without going outside even though there is a glass door in-between them??? The activity shed is full of wood and your packed in to dirty tables like sardines to participate in the activities. Staff was very old and very slow. Playground was great very clean/spacious.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The door from pool to restroom doesn't meet state health dept. code. Entrance gate must be secured as the chain link gate to the patio area. Oldest restrooms will be updated by 2017 season.

Pretty tightly put in there when you have a RV. Everything is well kept and nicely done:) Love the rootbeer floats!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We realize that a campground built in 1972 doesn't have adequate space and 50 amp electric for many of the newer RV's. We are working on plans for some future sites that will be implemented over the coming years.

Enjoyed our stay. Some of the pull through sites were pretty narrow. Nice pool. We arrived right after the pool opened for the season. Would come back!

We had such a wonderful time! The staff was extremely accommodating! The grounds were beautiful and tranquil! I will definitely recommend it to my friends.
May 10, 2016
The staff was FANTASTIC!! The store was well stocked, and most of all when my son arrived with the grand kids, they had so much to do. Since it is close to my home I will definitely return!

We had a terrific time. The improvements to the pool look very good. John & Kim sold over a year ago so new owners -- need to change on your e-mail!

Helpful staff and nice facilities

It was about 7 years since our last visit. The new owner has made a big difference. Glad to see all the work he has done and realize there is more to do but very much enjoyed our stay. Thanks!

Very friendly staff. They look out for the guests staying at the campground. The only complaint I would consider mentioning is the electrical. Although we had a electric and water tent site, the access to those was a little too far from the tent. Since it is still early in the season, we figured it would be cold. We brought an electric heater and an extension cord, but it still wasn't long enough.

The pool was closed which was a bummer but we still had a good time. They don't monitor for loud guests at night so if your tent or pop-up camping try and get away from others!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Noise of guests is one of the hardest to monitor and alleviate. Everyone has their own tolerance level and expectations for their camping experience. We will continue to ask people to decrease volume levels after 10 pm. Thanks, Tom

Great new owners, just getting started on upgrades, should be a much improved location in the near future
Oct 17, 2015
The amenities were great. Huge indoor pool, events for up the kids, movies at night. A very nice, helpful and friendly owners /staff. My only complaint would be, the sights are way too close together.
Oct 15, 2015
My son and I loved our recent stay at the Minneapolis Southwest KOA! Friendly owners, numerous kids activities, a Halloween theme. We will definitely camp here again.
Oct 13, 2015
As always a great stay.

for got to mention having a yellow jacket trap 3' from my camper . good thing I did not have the grand kids as little one are curious and this was only 4 ' off the ground in a tree.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I hear the concern. Will place traps better.

The dump station hose in order to clean out th email tank on camper would use a different hook up. When doing the trick or treat, make the hayrides athe one time then like 1 hour later have trick or treating start. So theven campers can have a better idea when to except kids. Otherwise really enjoy going there plus it's close

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Dump station faucet changed. Will look at timing of activities.

Great finishing weekend. Fun hayride, trick or treating, and good energy in the campground.
Oct 12, 2015
We stay at the KOA Minneapolis Southwest often (once a month). We will continue to go there because of the ease of access and it's location to Valleyfair.
Oct 12, 2015

Oct 12, 2015
The new owners couldn't do enough for you.

Location was convenient and close to family. Camping sites were too close together. Fortunately neighbors were friendly and considerate.
Oct 12, 2015
Excellent facilities and pool, friendly new owners make it a great place to stay. Perfect family campground nearby lots of local attractions.

We were at the campground for the Fall Celebration and it was a lot of fun!!
Oct 12, 2015
Stayed in a 2 room cabin. Staff was awesome, and grounds were clean. We enjoyed our stay.
Oct 12, 2015
It was a lot of fun, clean bathrooms/showers. The kids had fun playing at the park with some other kids they met and we felt that the owners were really friendly and caring. Thank you!
Oct 12, 2015
The staff was super friendly. The bathrooms were nice and clean. My kids loved the Halloween activities! So many things for them to do; the pool in October was a big hit! Will definitely return next season!

Located behind a recycle company, very noisy during weekday. Sites were okay, WIFI was below average.
Oct 10, 2015
We wish the pool had been heated more than it was.
Oct 09, 2015
Stay was fine and staff friendly but I was surprised I was charged for my dog. I would suggest you would be better to put your price of campsite up a little and remove fees for pets. Just sits poorly with me to be charged for a dog
Oct 08, 2015
Always a very cheerful helpful group.
Oct 06, 2015
New owners are very nice. Had a scheduling snafu that was dealt with very courteously. Wish there was a way to police quiet hours better. People next to us were up and loud until 3am.
Oct 06, 2015
Very nice,accommodating and safe.
Oct 06, 2015
Wonderful! I plan on staying here for next year season.
Oct 06, 2015
It was a very nice time. Only one night, but would definitely come back.
Oct 05, 2015
Staff was wonderful and the campground was well maintained.
Oct 05, 2015
The grounds were well kepted and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Congratulations to the new owners.
Oct 05, 2015
The sites are WAY to close together. We almost ripped off our neighbors awning when we pulled in because the narrow road and him being as far back in his site as possible.
Oct 05, 2015
Good place to stay.
