Lots of shade. Very smoky on the second day from forest fires in the northwest. Nice place!

I'll start with the pros: nice pool, most of the time the ONLY 1 bathroom/shower building is clean and stocked. Cons:The sites are too close (the neighbors canopy touched our slide), fire rings are right by the road (you could burn your vehicle or your neighbors), different rules for the owners/friends of owners(their dog can bark all afternoon/evening), the store is WAY overpriced on everything

Beautiful little campground. Nice, clean bathrooms and laundry room. Would defiantly recommend this to anyone who wants to go camping. I'm sure my family and I will be back soon!

We were only there one night. Would have been a wonderful 4th of July except our dog is terrified of anything that goes boom. So was rather stressful. Although the park was packed for the holiday, except for the fireworks display, it was mostly quiet and campers were respectful.

NICE PLACE. Not ur fault but some campers near had some rather rough & loud talk late into the nite.

We have been having our family reunion here for the past 8 years. It is a very family friendly place. The staff is very considerate of our needs.

the campground was beautiful, the people were very helpful in making sure at our site was ready when we arrived. we had no idea what to expect, since we were just driving through and needed a place to stay, but it was such a beautiful campground, we would like to go back and spend more time there.

My fiancé and I were very impressed with the area and amenities. The staff were friendly and helpful. The restroom and shower facilities were spotless throughout our stay. Also, the cabin was clean and comfy. I'd definitely recommend this KOA to others and will be back again. Great area overall.

This was a very nice KOA. Our site was nice and the people were well organized. It was on a beautiful lake. A very nice setting.

I can't believe they charged me12 per kid . A camp site should be for family!! Not just two adults.it cost me over100.00 for two nights. I will never stay at another koa park !!!!!!!

This was our first time staying at a KOA and I loved it. I thought the staff upon arrival was extremely nice and helpful. I loved the pool and I loved how clean the grounds were. The restrooms we're very clean and the showers were clean and each time I showered the water was warm:-) I will definately be staying agin!
Jun 29, 2015
Dont think kids 12 and under should be charged to stay.

Jun 25, 2015
Clean, peaceful, friendly and was not even there till after office closed but everything was covered. What a night should be when you're on vacation. An oasis on the road. Was nice to just sit and be. Thanks
Jun 25, 2015
It was good. I enjoyed the pool.
Jun 24, 2015
Although we were traveling with a small pop up, we were placed far from the bathroom. Also, our son was disappointed when the pool and games closed earlier than the posted hours.

Great place! Very clean, beautiful setting. Well maintained and easy access.

koa gets a 10 for cleanliness, 10 for friendly management,and a 10 for overall satisfaction.
Jun 23, 2015
I think it is criminal that you charge to have guests visit you while you are camping. The bathrooms smelled awful. The posted cleaning schedule for the bathrooms was not adhered to, was more than 30 minutes longer than posted. The staff was NOT friendly at all. Not a happy camper.
Jun 23, 2015
Nice campground but in need of some updates like picnic tables. Very friendly staff. Very clean place
Jun 22, 2015
Love the place!!
Jun 22, 2015
I would have given this stay a 5 except the woman running the camp was rude abut us having more than one car at the campsite. She said, "It is CLEARLY STATED in the rules on your map. What didn't you understand?" She then followed our daughter to the correct parking site and demanded to see her pass. The large yellow pass was already hanging from our daughter's car mirror. Yeesh!!!

Just an overnite but friendly staff made us feel at home. Good facilities, easy setup and lovely site.
