Hostess kept saying it was end of season, etc. Acted like she didn't really want to be there. Lots of "seasonal" empty campers. Put me way far away from the 3 other people camping there. Kind of scary. Asked to be moved. Had to pay extra for the same hook-ups when I moved. She said the site I was in was a "one night" site! Campground for sale.

This KOA has had friendly staff both time we stayed there. It was very clean both times. The only thing that my husband and I didn't like was the boat and fishing docks. The entrance to the boat dock is a scary non-paved and very narrow. The docks are old and ready to fall apart. They feel as if they will fall over if you stand to one side. The fishing docks are just as bad and in need of repair.

Very nice clean and tidy park. Love the setting on the lake. Easy access off and on the interstate but far enough away for no traffic noise. Thank you for an enjoyable stay! Will definetly stay here again.

Beautiful park-like setting right on a lake. Friendly staff. Site level, wide, & long enough to accommodate our 40' trailer & our truck with room to spare.

Our stay was great. We liked the facilities, especially the pool. The setting on the lake was great as well. We enjoyed looking out at the lake from our cabin in the evening & again in the morning. Maybe we'll be able to stay longer if we're back your way again.

The facilities related to the KOA site were great but if your looking to find a good boat ramp after 10:30 at night or to catch catfish from a dock this is the wrong place. The state side of the lake closes at 10:30 and the KOA side has nothing for a boat ramp or decent docks to fish from. The state needs to spend some money there. Enjoyed the camping though. Thanks

Beautiful campground, right beside Blue Lake. We stayed in a cabin which faced the lake and was very clean. Showers and bathrooms were 1st rate!

We had lots of fun and the kids loved the playground and pool cabin was small but we enjoyed being there wished we could have stayed longer.

We all had a great time again. We stayed there 2 weeks ago and will be staying again this coming weekend. We even looked into having a seasonal spot for next year, but were a little disappointed when we had to be put on a waiting list. We will keep our fingers crossed though.

too expensive when you can camp across the lake for $18-$23

Very clean bathrooms, you could actually bend over in them, clean cabins with some nice touches, like a rug. The grounds were picked up with no run down buildings. A great KOA.

No hot tub or cable. Parked next to a soy bean field. A bit off the beaten track. Nice people, but would skip next time.

In the middle of a corn field next to a lake. . . . . and a very funky smell about the campground - not sure what it was but it stunk. General facilities okay.

We loved it so much we set up 2 more reservations in the weeks coming.

Very nice...quiet...lots of trees with lake and pool access. We will go again. Really close to Omaha but far enough to be quiet!

Our cabin overlooked the lake with an awesome view of the Lewis and Clark keelboat. Linda, in the office was friendly and helpful. Bathrooms clean. Loved our stay!

Tall shade trees. Love pizza delivered from the office to your site. Pleasant cheery host.

I have stayed in this campground twice now, and find it to be clean, friendly, and pleasant. The campsites are mostly shaded, and it is very pet friendly. The staff is helpful, and the pool is clean. All in all, no negatives.

Just stayed overnight on a Motorcycle trip with some friends. Really seemed cleaned and the shade trees in the tent camping area were awesome cover from the sun.
