Great Staff, very clean sights. The only issue was that the water went out for about 3-4 hours, and would have appreciated better communication.

First time staying @ a KOA and we really enjoyed ourselves. Traveling with kids, the quietness @ 10pm was great. A bit on the expensive side.

Very nice place to stay and friendly and helpful staff,,, I had a great time

The staff and facilities at this KOA were very good. Lots to do and very supportive and friend staff. The new pool was also very nice. My only complaint was that the bathrooms are in need of maintenance, they could have been kept cleaner more often and the garbage cans were not emptied often enough.

There were no tent sites available when we booked, but were able to reserve a multipurpose site which worked out great for us. The site was a good size. The whole campground is very clean and maintained throughout the day. There are plenty of activities to keep the kids happy and busy. Will definitely return! Wish the sites were not as close together but our neighbors were not bothersome at all.

The park was clean and the help was great especially FDR and Mike and the live entertainment was wonderful but the Wifi was horrible and you couldn't even get Verizon. They definitely need to upgrade if they want people to come back

I went to the office in several occasions requesting information regarding activities but was unable to get any information And it was very loud all night and the Koa staff didn't seem to make any effort to control the loud guest throughout the park after midnight

Thanks for staying with us! Listen to what other guests are saying "We have been coming yearly to this KOA for 20+ years. It has grown and changed to become the best ever!"

We took our two grandchildren for a weekend stay and they had an awesome time. Both commented on how nice and polite everyone in a "yellow shirt" was to them. We already talking about our next visit.
Jul 24, 2017
so much for the kids to do!
Jul 24, 2017
I felt that there was a lot to offer but I felt the staff was not willing enforce rules Guest were very loud there wasn't anyone around to enforce quiet hours. I felt that staff didn't have a lot of information about the area when I went to the office requesting information about a gas station and local market. It was clean but lacked the customer service I was looking for.

We enjoyed staying at this camping. Just for the experience. It was really crowded. But in the evening is was quiet and all the people were very nice

very nice, clean. loved it
Jul 24, 2017
The tent sites were too small, close together, and expensive, but the location was great!

Campsites too close, too many wild screaming kids. Maybe it is better in the months when kids are in school.

Awsome!!!

We had a great stay! KOA staff were all helpful and kind. Facilities were clean, and we never had to wait for a bathroom or shower. There were so many activities for to keep the kids busy. We will definitely be back!

So many fun things for the kids to do!!! A little too crowded for my liking but it was a great 1st experience with KOA! My kids had a blast & loved all the activities!
Jul 23, 2017
Our grandsons love this place. The arcade games not so hot, but the new pool area is very nice.
Jul 23, 2017
We had a great time. We did find some cabins have a lot more room than others. We were in cabin 122 which had very little room compared to the cabin 123.
Jul 23, 2017
Great campground. Very clean and staff were all friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay here again!
Jul 23, 2017
We have stayed here a number of times and cant understand the steady decline in the condition of the pull through sites. Overall the camp is great but not in sites we use. Also we would recommend the placement of doggie waste containers at locations around the camp.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for staying with us! The enhancements for the pull through sites are next on our list. Due to the sever weather we had this year, we just ran out of time before the season started. Look forward to your next visit.

Great family friendly place.
Jul 22, 2017
Very clean and nice campsites. We were lucky to have one with some shade. I saw quite a few that were in full sun. Everyone was very respectful of the 10PM quiet time and did not hear any noises during the nights. My only dig is the cost. $107 a night, even for KOA, is way too expensive.
Jul 22, 2017
Wobderful time although the bed in cabin was slightly uncomfortable
Jul 22, 2017
Extremely clean, good service, great for kids. Cell phone and wifi much improved. It takes a lot of work and expense to keep a nice place like this running this well.
Jul 22, 2017
Very clean. Staff helpful.
Jul 22, 2017
This is a nice location and a well maintained facility. It is popular so the site has no green Grass. The kids area is better than most.
Jul 22, 2017
Wonderful camp site..... very clean, lots of activities and very friendly staff.

It was a great place for our family reunion. Only issue I had was instead of actually fixing things in the cabins they would nail the cabinet doors shut so not able to use them. Our door to the outside was broke so instead of fixing them they sealed it shut so only able to open one side but others were able to open both. We also had to replace batteries in remote to get it to work.
Jul 21, 2017
Very nice spot. The women's bathroom needed attention, though.
Jul 21, 2017
Overall the facility was clean and very well maintained. WIFI was extremely poor unless you were at the bathrooms.Toilet in the mens bathroom had come loose from the floor. Im a maintenance manager so I tend to look at the maintenance of places I visit. I will say that this is the best KOA I have stayed at. Price is high but probably good for the area.
Jul 21, 2017
Our 4th year going. Kids just love it and we actually extended our stay while there an extra day. Great activities for the kids! Only reason not a 5 star is that the restrooms & garbage cans need more regular maintenance. Many times sinks were out of soap, no toilet seat protectors and garbage outside bathroom was overflowing for 2 days.
Jul 21, 2017
Wonderful KOA! It was professional run, clean, and organized. Made for a great experience for our family! Also convenient to get to town just in case you forgot something or need something that their store did not have and they pretty much had everything you could imagine needing!
Jul 21, 2017
Our family had such a great time. There was so much to do and our kids never had a dull moment. They especially enjoyed the playground. Also, the facility was always clean and maintained. Thank you
Jul 21, 2017
Nice campground for family's with children or grandchildren that want a lot of amenities. Campsites are very well maintained and quiet.

Extremely family friendly
Jul 20, 2017
That is one of the cleanest places I've stayed at.. the staff really should be proud on how nice the grounds are.. it's very quiet at night.. we loved our stay.. the spaces for our trailer were more than enough.. when you open your slide out & awning, it didn't feel cramped.. we will be back.. thanks for a great stay

I was disappointed that the pool wasn't completed as anticipated for our vacation. The only notification that I received that it wouldn't be completed was down at the bottom of the confirmation of our reservation. I had to take my boys to the beach every day and drag all their possessions down to the beach which changed the face of my vacation. KOA should offer me a free night next summer.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for staying with us! So you got a confirmation letter that said the pool was closed and you decided to come anyway, we appreciate your business. So... then you were disappointed the pool wasn't opened? Not sure I know what to say here. You are welcome, no extra charge for the exercise, sure the kids loved the beach.

There were two families that booked the cabins and KOA messed up the reservation it was from 14-16 and KOA had them from 16-19. Not cool we come from 3hrs away. You guys left the club house with the music on all night and the first night no one said anything the our neighbors for being to loud until 1am but we get told at 950pm that we will have to shout down the karaoke @ 10pm and then secretly

Great for the family. Plenty of fun for the kids. Clean campgrounds, friendly staff, and activities for The whole family. We're booking our trip for next year.
