The best KOA I ever stayed in it was clean and the people and the owners were very friendly.

Great place to camp clean bathrooms and a nice laundry facility. The store had all the necessary items for camping and beer so people don't have to travel to town. Great Place!!!


Thank you for your wonderful comment, we strive to make sure that all of our campers leave here safe and happy!

We have stayed here in the past few years but were pleasantly surprised by the new owners and the many changes going on. The new owners are doing a great job! The store layout is awesome and we love all the new products with great prices! You rock!

I realize it is end of season but would have appreciated opportunity to purchase some firewood.


When you booked your site the cost reflected the store being closed. We were on site most of the time of your stay, you should have said something then instead of now.

We have stayed here before, always have enjoyed it. I really like it this time because this is the first time we had a drive-through space! It's a lot easier to maneuver this way. The chili cook off was great also! I didn't know this place did things like this! How fun! Thanks for having us! The Maryott's

Arrived late and paperwork was ready. Mosquitos were numerous and followed me into the camper. Very quiet except for the occasional buzzing sound in my ears. Would stay again if traveling this way. I do not like mosquitos!

This park is on a lake and away from interstate noise. It is well maintained. Long, level pull throughs and lots of shade.
Sep 25, 2016
Very friendly people. Loved sitting by the lake and watching the sunset in our spacious grassy site. Bathroom music piped in made it enjoyable

It was such a beautiful setting. We were only passing through but we're very pleased with all the facilities and loved the lake view.

A Very nice KOA - good site, etc- only issue is all of the burning of wood fires.


Thank you for your recent stay, I am sorry you did not approve of the campfires, I am assuming this was your first stay at a campground.

Our site was a bit muddy due to the rains. Possibly put down grass seed? Friendly staff.

Second stay at this campground. I'm sure there will be a third!

Stay was fine but we had our aunt and uncle visit us and they were charges $2.00 a piece and was told they had to park their car and walk in. First of all the aunt is on oxygen and the uncle isn't in the best of health they are 75 years old. They let him drive the aunt in to the park to our camper but was told he had to bring the car back out and park it by the play ground and walk back in.


Thank you for your recent stay but none of this was brought to our attention so I am sorry that we couldn't do anything about it, the rules were given to you at check in. You could have offered to drive the car into the visitor parking for your uncle or left your vehicle in the visitor parking.

To many barking dogs. Loud & boisterous guests lasted until 11:30 PM. WILL NOT BE BACK!


Thank you for your stay, if there was a problem you should have told us and we would have taken care of it during your 3 day stay.

Very nice campground!! Will def go back!!!

Campground was in great condition and the hosts were very accommodating.

Really enjoyed our stay at Onawa Blue Lake.
Sep 09, 2016
It was clean and quiet. The only thing I didn't care for was that many of the sites seem occupied by long-term residents. I can't really fault them because they aren't in a big-draw tourist area - they have to make their money!

We like coming to owana .close to home. Bathrooms are clean and camp ground is well kept. Also the little store helps out with ice and other things you need when you forgot them. My grandchildren enjoy riding the bicycles as well.

When we arrived at the campground the site we were given had plastic bottles, cigarette buttes and other trash in the fire pit. The hook-ups were placed so that we would not be able to extend our slide on the Motorhome and still connect. Also our entry step would be in mud.The office person was rude when we asked to move and charged us an additional fee for 50 amp hookup. Very Dissatisfied.


You definitely have us confused with another campground that you stayed at on your trip.
