Always such a quiet and relaxing stay for our family. However, we'd appreciate the store being open at some point in the middle of the day...not only early and then again late...we had lunch needs one day and my daughter kept wanting to purchase snacks the other day.

We enjoyed our stay at the Onawa KOA. The owners were very cordial & helpful.

every other KOA we have stayed at provided a heater in our Kabin in we did a late night check-in. I did not know I had to ask for this and they did not leave a heater for us, knowing we were checking in late and it was a cold fall night. I went into the office the next day to say we froze all night long and the lady laughed and said "you should have cuddled together." She obviously did not care.

Very nice campground on the lake. We stayed in a kabin - very clean/nice. Nice, friendly people. Loved it! Had a great time and plan on coming back many times.

Ony thing lacking was an enclosed dog run. I travel with a greyhound, who is very mild and loves to sleep. But at least once a day he loves to run around. Lots of nice space-wouldn't take much to make a dog run. Thanks.

Friendly staff - good location. Quiet place. Problems with Wifi, but we appreciated the facilities which were very clean. Laundry expensive though. Too bad the 'long term' guests are parked so close to those of us overnighting. There are squirrels in the Park and our dog barked at them creating an issue for someone taking a mid-day nap.

Terrific help in making future reservations. Lovely surroundings. Spotless restrooms. Best ever is the pizza delivered to the campsite from the camp store.

This was our first stay at a KOA. We had a great time! The cabins were great, my kids thought it was thier club house! The only thing I would complain about is the boat docks. They are in serious need of maintenance. They are almost to the point of being totally unsafe! Other than that, wonderful place! We can't wait to explore other KOAs! Thanks!

No cable TV nor was the wifi working. Okay, place was clean but at the end of a day on the road, these amenities are appreciated.

We had a very nice stay at this KOA. The bathrooms were exceptionaly clean. The owners and workers were very friendly and helpful. Staying by the lake was so relaxing and my husband caught a great many fish. We will stay there again if we are in the area.

Need more fishing access from camp besides the small wobbly docks for those without a boat. Bathrooms were the cleanest I think I have ever been to in over 30 years of camping.
