Enjoyed the stay, everyone was very helpful and friendly. The facilities were clean and loved the little store for last minute things we forgot. I would suggest they re-stone the spots as that would help with the bad mud problem.

I'd like to see more full service hook-ups. There is an eroding bank along the lake that looks dangerous.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your stay, as new owners we are addressing the bank issue.

need more activities going on

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your stay, we are sorry that the pool, fishing, fun cycles, playground, horse shoes, basketball, volleyball and paddle boats were not enough activities for you.

We were not informed about the availability of WiFi when we checked in. We did get the code from our neighbors though.

Staff very accommodating. Grounds looked great. Views of the lake amazing!

Pool was closed, docks weren't in the water so couldn't go out to the lake or put a paddle boat in, store/game room was only open very limited hours.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry your stay was unpleasant, all of our signs and advertisement state that our pool opens Memorial day weekend. The docks go in at the same time due to the lake temperature being cold.

Did not think the site was very good..especially for a pull thru with all utilities...

this park had to many full timers in premium sites. very unusual that the office was not manned on a Saturday afternoon.

One of the nicest KOA's that we have ever stayed at. Always pleasant and accomodating regardless of what size rig you drive. We know that we will have a pleasant night after a long driving day. This place is like a park as it borders on a beautiful lake. Expect spectacular sunsets!!

Great people & campground!

I've stayed twice. both times we had low voltage problems. we were told it was something on our end. He checked it with his voltage tester but wouldn't show my husband what it said. He lied. that is the only place we had problems so it wasn't us. she is rude not someone who should be in customer service.

Sorry about your unpleasant stay, the campground has new owners, try us again please!

Internet was very limited emails with attachments would not work. KOA camping is mostly top of the line not here on the internet. the rest was great.
Oct 05, 2015
It would have been nice if the office was open more hours. Our guests arrived at different times during the day. She chastised us for not registering our guests. Nice location and clean.

It's beautiful.

clean,, friendly hosts, just a great place to stay...
Sep 30, 2015
The campground itself has nice showers and is clean. However we have never been treated so rudely at check in. There was a sign on the door saying where the after hours check in was located. However since it was not after hours we waited for someone...when she came she asked if I could read the sign on the door and why did I not get the info out of the box
Sep 29, 2015
nice place. owners were friendly. would stop here again if ever in the area
Sep 27, 2015
Came in after dark. Had a little trouble finding the campsite in the dark (map could have been a little clearer) but a fellow camper helped us. Nice facilities. Would stop here again.
Sep 26, 2015
This is a great quiet campground and the owners are great too
Sep 25, 2015
Good staff. Nice view next to the lake.
Sep 25, 2015
Loved everything except the thunderstorm.
Sep 25, 2015
We had a spot right on the lake. It was beautiful, quiet and we ordered a pizza that wad less than 5 minutes away. It was delicious. However, it rained hard for hours. We really couldn't get out and enjoy our stay, but would definitely go back

GREAT PLACE TO CAMP
Sep 22, 2015
Made our reservations on line on short notice which worked out well. Requested a pull-through for our 40' fifth wheel. Again, no problems in fact I got to select our site. Most importantly, unlike most KOA, this KOA was two miles off the interstate which got us away from the highway noise. Huge trees and well kept grounds were a bonus. A very pleasant surprise with easy in & easy out parking.
Sep 22, 2015
Very pretty. We were there in mid sept. WE had to find our site buy are self. We did it but it sure would of been nice if the host would of taken us there. We were very tired So the help would of been nice
Sep 21, 2015
Very nice quiet campground

Please evaluate the speed bumps at the entry. Those travelling on 2 wheels are greatly impacted by such large speed bumps
Sep 13, 2015
clean grassy sites. The lake was beautiful. The staff extremely accommodating and friendly! Would use them again.
