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.

Great shower facilities. Pull through sites were ok but somewhat close together. Arrived after the office was closed but there was information available on how to find the site.

Very friendly and helpful. Park was clean and very well treed with mature trees. We had a 45' diesel pusher and had no problem maneuvering through the park.

campground was clean, fairly quiet for a holiday week. we were put in a small site with seasonal campers that had many visitors when there were better sites available. disappointing when we reserved way in advance.but the staff was great, store was nice, and restrooms well maintained. nice place. we'd go back again.
