Such a WONDERFUL KOA. We only needed a one-night stay, and this was simply perfect. This KOA had THE CLEANEST bathrooms of any campsite we stayed at on our 2-week vacation. Very nice, shaded spots, great location, and extremely nice and helpful staff. Absolutely lovely!

We stopped here as an overnight stop on our way to Branson, MO and found your park to be excellent. I would include the park again should I be in the area.

This KOA was exceptionally well taken care of. The bathrooms we extremely clean, the park it's self was very well maintained. It really was first class, My only advise is to advertise and utilize the water behind the KOA as a beach the water was great.

Great place. Extremely clean restrooms. We had fun renting bikes. Nice big trees for shade.

my camping experiance at the blue lake koa was not as i hoped it would be for the amount of money it cost to stay there, 1. the boat ramp was unusable i had to use the boat ramp at the state park across the lake 2.the boat docks were broken and half under water and damaged my boat 3.when i arrived and was setting up my camper the yard maintenance crew was blowing grass and rocks at me mowing

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Give us a break!! We had 20" of rain in June. We don't have a boat ramp and our boat docks are NOT broken. No one complained to us! As far as mowing, nothing was said to us. Yes they have to use the state park to launch a boat and then bring it to over to our boat docks to tie it up. :(

The campground is very nice and clean. The only drawback was the accessibility for fishing was limited and the docks looked old and one was half-submerged underwater. It was a great experience overall anyway. Thank you!

We love KOA's - especially for overnight stays. We stay at KOA when ever we can.
