the campsites were very muddy because it rained which no one can control but also had a lot of gravel wash-out and large mudpits that had been that way for long periods it looked like.

very friendly staff, helpful and responsive to requests. Clean surroundings and well kept facilities. Nicely wooded grounds with various types of camp sites available. We will be back!!

My family and I have been to 2 different campsite;zilpo & lake Cumberland resort, and so far KOA is a winner.Hospitality is world class and security is top notch. This site made my family and I feel like we were camping back home in Kenya at Crayfish campsite on lake naivasha, kenya. Awesome experience.The only con was the restroom. They need to centralize the restrooms for convenience at night.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay. Peaceful get away. Spent most of our time swinging in our hammock. Most of the caperswe merry were nice. Definitely will be back

The campground was clean and well maintained, but the bathrooms were tiny and there was always a line to use them. I would stay at another KOA but not that one again.

wonderful time, very safe and secure. I forgot to tell the office but all the running water in the camp sites looked like milk, not sure why.

Full hookup is nice. Price is high. Charges extra money per person for more than two people. We had a very bright light on a pole above our site that was very annoying when trying to sleep or have a fire at night. Staff is nice.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks you for staying with us. The safety of our guest is of great importance to us, therefore several security lights are scattered throughout the park on photoelectric eyes and cannot be turn off.

Got to our site had reserved 2 sites with electric and water only 1 of our sites had electric and it didn't work had to run an extension to another pole they were accommodating and nice and gave us another site then at the end

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We apologize for any inconvenience encountered during your stay. We did everything we could to accommodate your group including providing a total of 4 sites for your use.

Our campsite was not a real site. The KOA employee had to go get us a fire ring which ended up being a bunch of rocks. All other sites had a metal fire ring.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us. I'm sorry your site did not meet your expectations. This is one of our better sites. We have both metal and fire pit building stones purchased from Lowes for our fire pit rings.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We loved the campground area and had a wonderful experience. Only negative was that the picnic tables were in poor shape, but we had tablecloths and extra towels to put on the bench area and it did not detract from our experience.

We stayed here last year several times and they still gave us what we needed. Time for us. Relax and recharge. Looking forward to next visit.

Great time of year to stay. Very friendly & helpful

Pleasant host, clean lodge and bathrooms. BUT the sites were nowhere near legal, small turning area we had to turn around to get out the next morning. The host assigned spots but gave us the option to pick any spot in the section, no doubt she was aware of the poor sites.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We allow campers to select their site if possible only to benefit the camper- some like under trees, some do not, some like close to the store some like a more secluded site.

Nice relaxing area. Very friendly staff.

Great place good people can't ask for much better .

I'm not sure how KOA could claim this campground. It's in desperate need of road and site repairs. RVs/trailers larger than 20ft should stay away. It's difficult to maneuver out of the campground and the ditch at the entrance/exit is dangerous.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Our roads did suffer this winter and were in need of grading. We have a variety of site with the longest being 70 ft. All roads have since been graded. We apologize for your inconvenience.

Overall, pleased w stay. Bathrooms were clean, staff was friendly and helpful. The cabin was a good albeit last minute decision.

Very nice place and wonderful staff

The park in itself was average. The camp manager, Sharon, however, made our stay excellent! She went out of her way to make our stay very enjoyable. In fact, in all our travels, she is the best camp manager we have ever experienced.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'd like to thank you very much for the compliment, and just to let you know that you both were one of the most enjoyable campers that I have had, we get a lot of wonderful people pass through our campground, it was a pleasure having you here, hope you stop by again soon...Sharon

Great pull thru RV sites. Entrance/Exit into the campground from state road needs to be widen. Hard to make a turn with a long RV or trailer without putting trailer wheels into the ditch. Campground workers and host were excellent.
Sep 23, 2015
Quiet, secluded and the staff are friendly and helpful.
Sep 22, 2015
Cabin was very clean and so were bathrooms. We will be back.
Sep 22, 2015
Perfect weather, Perfect site and Perfect place to get away. Be back again

Very nice family owned park,clean and tidy, friendly staff, sat on the little beach with a good book and rented a fishing boat from their marina.A bit hilly for big rigs, we were in a small travel trailer.
Sep 21, 2015
Cabin was clean, restroom was clean, campground was clean. The campground was very dark at night, needed more street lights and there were no other campers on sight making it a very odd. Needed an emergency phone number posted with nobody on site. Was thankful that I had personal protection handy and was only staying one night.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry your stay was uncomfortable, we do have security from Alligator II making rounds around campground nightly and also resident camper who lives on site year round across from camp store. We also have emergency numbers posted on front and back of store and also by pool with phone.

This KOA is in a beautiful setting. The roads are quite bumpy with sharp turns. Several sites were very uneven with deep ruts BUT it was a great stay with very friendly helpful people. We had a good time.
Sep 12, 2015
We have stayed here several times and think it is a great place to stay.

The cabin that I rented for the night was adequate accommodations, however the door was hard to open/close and the structure itself was un-level. The pool was nice and the grounds fairly well kept. No direct access to the lake from the grounds.

The lower lots are not level and difficult to get to and leave from.

Very quiet, clean and convenient. Friendly helpful staff.

Enjoyed our stay as usual,this is 3rd year same as always, really enjoyed the bluegrass festival, good music,people & food. Lots of talent there, hope to be there 2016, see ya then!!!!!!
Aug 25, 2015
I always get moved from the front row somewhere in the back but this yr I wasn't notified of any changeswe rent 2cabins &3 camper spots a yr n advance,6yrs now, the lady@ the gate made my family member pay after she was told we were renting!
Aug 25, 2015
Phone signals were poor. I understand this may not be something you can control. We enjoyed the pool, playground (would like to see a little more playground equipment), but was sufficient. Staff very helpful. Enjoyed the bluegrass show extremely. Hope to return next year again.
Aug 24, 2015
I love this koa. I gave this koa 4 stars instead of 5 because of how much out of level my spot was. I cant say that all spots are that way,just the one I used. This is a nice koa. I will be back.
Aug 24, 2015
Quiet and very respectable treatment. Bluegrass Weekend was great, well maintained. Wi-Fi advertised: not accessible from my location (very disappointed). Campground info should have been provided at check-in(where to dispose of trash, expectations, etc..) since website was not accessible.
Aug 24, 2015
We were there for the Bluegrass festival, the staff was very friendly and helpful. A well maintained campground! Plan on going again next year.
