Everyone was so nice! We were in a tent near the restroom, so we parked the car to block the light from the tent. We agreed it would probably be best to come back with kids, they walked through our site often to get to the park, so there definitely wasn't too much privacy. It felt very communal, which was lovely - overall it was wonderful. Thank you!

Were so glad you enjoyed your visit. You were in our only dry tent site. We do offer tent sites with power water and more privacy. Call the park directly next time and we will be happy to help you with a site!

The campsite was nice. The bathrooms were great/clean. The lodge and pool were nice. We caught 100 fish over 2 days. Very large/spread out campground. I wish it was a little more grassy/green. We would definitely visit again.

I love little diamond the staff is so helpful and friendly, check in was amazingly and fast. I needed help when my car stalled and the staff was amazing again they came right to my site help my car got it started. The time we spent there my kids had the most enjoyable time hike around the lake, The boys love the fishing. Can't wait to go back I would highly recommend this for All Families

Although we didn't get the site requested, we enjoyed our second visit to Diamond Lake. The boys loved fishing and swimming in the lake, playing in the pool and the Lodge for games and Wifi.

The campground is nice. The lady at the customer service was tense and rude but the rest of the staff i talk to were nice and helpful.

Beautiful. Quiet. Loved it!

The pool was great. We liked having an adults only swim time. We missed having the store available like at most KOA's we've been to. Beautiful setting.

Were sorry we didn't meet your expectations. We have a camp store and its only closed on Tuesdays.

Very happy with the restrooms. They were clean and safe for my family. Everything was clean and well maintained. It would be nice if the pool was warmer, it was so cold
Jul 17, 2017
Great staff, beautiful grounds and fun activities. Will definitely make this a regular family camping spot. BTW, to all the negative reviewers, get over it! "There were bees, there was rain, the shower room wasn't like a five star hotel etc..." LOL! It's called CAMPING people.

Friendly, helpful, clean. Unfortunately camper kitchen is remotely located.

The customer service was completely unacceptable, I paid for a dry tent site and when they took us to the site it was ridiculous. There was nowhere flat for a tent to actually be pitched, it was literally a patch of grass exposed to the entire campground. No privacy at all, it was overgrown grass and pokey rocks. We then asked for an upgrade to a hook-up site and were greeted with snarky comments.

We loved the. Staff they were all friendly and answered any questions right away. Took my Grand daughters they loved the pond the pool and all the activities. The only down side was the loud music that played until 11:30. It was aweful. Thank goodness the girls slept through it. We will go back again. But if the music is loud we will go wake the camp host at 11 pm

The website is very misleading. There is no fishing, or nearby pool, the closest water is about 10 minutes. The firewood was so wet we couldn't even build a fire, and the camp sites are small, and way over priced. To say it was a disappointment is an under statement.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Were sorry we didn't meet your expectations. We have fishing@ our fishing pond. Two fish per person per day. The pool is at the family lodge and is only about a 5 minute walk from your site and you can drive and park at the family lodge and beach area. Our firewood is very seasoned and dry. Your site had its own power, water, table fire pit & a tent pad that is 16'x16'. please give us another try.

People very friendly questions answered to best of there knowledge campground was very clean was very nice overall thank you to all the people there for the hospitality
Jul 05, 2017
People were extremely friendly, and the camp ground was nice. But too expensive for the amenities. You should have some free activities for kids. The bathrooms weren't held up either.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Were sorry we didn't meet your expectations. We have a playground, basketball, Frisbee golf, fishing lake, family lodge with pool tables,foos ball, ping pong, movies and planned activities, like bingo, food challenges, scavenger hunts, flashlight candy hunts wifi center( with direct tv) hiking trails, All of these activities were free during your stay. Crafts and ice cream we do charge for.

We were led to our campsite there were events that were planned for campers. It was like a camp I would want to send my son to but haven't found because of his special needs. Everyone was friendly and the camp was neat and clean. I could not have had a better first time at a KOA camp ground. They set the bar high for any other camp grounds/
Jun 26, 2017
The staff was helpful and friendly. The campground was clean and well-kept. They offered plenty of activities and events for the whole family. We really enjoyed our stay and plan to return soon.
Jun 22, 2017
Excellent. Well maintained grounds. Great ice cream social.
Jun 19, 2017
I was told I had to have a site with water and electricity because all the other sites were occupied. No one was there and the sites were empty. They lied to me to get me to book a more expensive site. Now you can't book a site for less than three days. Don't camp here they will gouge you for every penny.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Were sorry we didn't meet your expectations. We only have one tent site with no hook ups and that was booked during your stay. All our other tent sites have power and water included. The only time you have to book three days is on a major holiday weekend. Hope you'll give us another try.
Jun 01, 2017
The tent site was not cleaned before our stay. We had to rake and pinecone before setting up camp. Bathrooms were not cleaned frequently.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're sorry we didn't meet your expectations. Are sites are cleaned after each use. The site is the gravel pad, the area below were the trees and pine cones are is not part of the site. We hope you'll give us another try and next time bring any issues to our attention while your here so we can help

Spent one night sleeping in my car in a very clean and quiet dry campsite near a clean bathroom facility. Much appreciate your organization, but overpriced for my needs.
Oct 03, 2016
Wifi center and employees were great, just our tent site was infested with tons of bees!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We wish you had come and told us there was an issue. We could have put up a bee bag or moved you to another site. Were sorry we didn't meet your expectations

My family and I always have a great time at your KOA!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We love our campers. Come see us again soon!!
Sep 05, 2016
My first stay at a KOA! Staff was friendly, grounds and facilities were very clean. Lots of great activities for the kids. I'll never go back on a holiday weekend-too busy! Owners need to invest in updated equipment in the family lodge.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you enjoyed the park. This is a 360 acre park so lots of room for everyone. We have a brand new ping pong table on the way!! Please come see us again. We are open until 10/3/16 this season.

Large location with lots of sites and activities to keep you entertained. Facilities were well maintained.
Aug 26, 2016
Stayed in tent campsite, the tent pads were terrible the ground would-be better.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

sorry we didn't meet your expectations. most campers like the tent pads which are 16x 16 and filled with pea gravel for a softer sleeping surface. we do have a couple with out pads so give us another try!
Aug 23, 2016
I like all the koa campgrounds that I have stayed in over the last 20 years.Diamond lake KOA is super small camping spaces.Customer service was the worst, I WILL NEVER GO BACK!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Hi Mrs. Bleth, sorry you had an issue with our staff. Can you please give me specifics about the customer service that you received? Thank you, Mike Johnson Mgr.
Aug 22, 2016
Had a great stay. Lots of activities for the whole family to do together. Good campground for kids with bikes to ride
Aug 20, 2016
It was ok for a campground. The people running the place aren't very friendly but it was clean.
Aug 20, 2016
Loved the spaciousness between sites. Nicely maintained. Friendly host.
Aug 18, 2016
This was a beautiful facility with many activities available. Wish we could have stayed more than one night!
Aug 14, 2016
A great surprise! We couldn't stay long this time, but we will be back to explore all that this KOA has to offer.

The largest KOA I have ever been to. Very large spots. Remote settings. Friendly staff
Jul 31, 2016
The people are very nice and quick to help with any request. Bees will drive you crazy though so bring a screen tent to cook and eat inside. We ended up hanging 4 bee catchers to make it bearable. Would have liked to pick out my own site but they assign them. We were there for a week and it is very quiet during the week! Bathrooms were very well kept! The Camp store closes super early(4pm).
Jul 26, 2016
It was a fun and relaxing place. We really enjoyed our stay.
Jul 25, 2016
Excellent campground, service over and above expectation, a great campground and a wonderful camping experience. We did not stay long enough to explode the whole place, but I can tell you the washrooms we clean, staff was very courteous and helpful, the site was immaculate, and very quiet. Only reason not to give 5 stars is that we didn't stay long enough to fully enjoy the whole place!!
Jul 25, 2016
Friendly staff, clean bathrooms, and a quiet atmosphere. I would definitely come back again .
Jul 24, 2016
It was raining while we were there, so we were utilizing the family center to keep the kids entertained. The pool tables were uneven with holes in the felt, doubles of some balls and missing the others, hard to find a straight stick. Only 2 ping pong paddles and both desperately need to be replaced. The concept is nice, but execution needs some work.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Were sorry we didn't meet your expectations. Only one table has a small hole in the felt.There are no missing balls and we check this every day, and there are lots of sticks to use. We had just replaced the ping pong paddles the week prior. Next time please let a staff member know.
Jul 21, 2016
Unlike other KOAs near by, this actually feels like a true campground, not a glorified parking lot! Staff was very friendly and helpful, while swimming in the lake is allowed, it's not a great idea, but the pool and spa were just fine. Wifi only works at lodge and WiFi center. Very quite.
Jul 20, 2016
Excellent service! Kind and friendly check-in lady. Clean and convenient for our travel.
Jul 13, 2016
Fantastic site, quiet and peaceful.

I was extremely disappointed that the ammenties where not available and no notification was sent to let us know ahead of time. The power was out for the bathrooms which was unsafe. Not to mention the most unprofessional manager I have ever seen to say "well you can blame the employee that quit" is the worst customer service ever. We pay fo 2 nights and didnt even stay one night.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Were sorry that we didn't meet your expectations. The power went out for 40 miles around us, so was not a planed outage. The Playground, basketball court, Frisbee golf and beach areas were all available.The pool was only down on the 5th, We did have to shut the spa down during the outage for safety
