Very nice, quiet campground. We stopped for one night on our way back from Yellowstone. Nice shaded sites, pretty view of the lake.

Three ladies in the office when I came in, however no one said hello for what seemed like minutes. Guess I've been spoiled from some of the other KOA parks we been in. No escort to the site,no explanation of trash pickup. Just could be a little friendlier. Campsite were very good....little close for being in the country.

The grounds and facilities were clean and well-kept. The staff was friendly and willing to be of service. My only disappointment was that the quiet time rule was not enforced.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the quiet hours, the people that caused the problems are no longer welcome here. Thank you for your stay.

It is by a beautiful lake and there are lots of trees for shade. The pool was very clean and refreshing. The cabin was clean inside. The front porch and picnic table could have used a good cleaning. The bathrooms and showers were clean. There were only two shower and bathroom stalls as one of each was not working. Overall it was a nice area and taken care of well.

Nice place but a little tight if you have slide outs with awnings out. You get to know your neighbors real quick.

Beautiful, well maintained campsite. The only thing bad, I was charged 5 dollars for my dog to stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about that, we do not charge travel trailers for pets, that was an error. We have refunded that charge to you. Thank you for your stay!

Always good stay at KOA, expensive for 1 night stay. We don't use many of your resources for 1 night.

Great facilities. Staff was fantastic to work with. Only downfall was there is no place to really fish due to side of lake slipping away. Docks are very narrow and crowded. Otherwise, pretty views.

Enjoyed the stay, everyone was very helpful and friendly. The facilities were clean and loved the little store for last minute things we forgot. I would suggest they re-stone the spots as that would help with the bad mud problem.

I'd like to see more full service hook-ups. There is an eroding bank along the lake that looks dangerous.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your stay, as new owners we are addressing the bank issue.

need more activities going on

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your stay, we are sorry that the pool, fishing, fun cycles, playground, horse shoes, basketball, volleyball and paddle boats were not enough activities for you.

We were not informed about the availability of WiFi when we checked in. We did get the code from our neighbors though.
May 23, 2016
Staff very accommodating. Grounds looked great. Views of the lake amazing!
May 23, 2016
Pool was closed, docks weren't in the water so couldn't go out to the lake or put a paddle boat in, store/game room was only open very limited hours.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry your stay was unpleasant, all of our signs and advertisement state that our pool opens Memorial day weekend. The docks go in at the same time due to the lake temperature being cold.
May 22, 2016
Did not think the site was very good..especially for a pull thru with all utilities...
May 21, 2016
Lovely surroundings.
May 21, 2016
