The pool was great. Although there was dirt and whatnot on the bottom. I had hoped to see a couple movies at the New Years Eve party, but to no avail. ( There also should have been a karaoke. )I had also hoped that there would be free breakfast served. Also, there is plenty games for adults and toddlers, but not enough for tweens and teens. Otherwise, we had a great time!

The cabin was clean and nice. We only miss having a stove, but otherwise it was perfect. We had a good time in our stay there.

This was our first time staying at a KOA, We really enjoyed our stay at this camp ground. We had a deluxe cabin for our stay & was really comfortable & clean. Camp site is large with lots for the kids to do. Everyone we met was friendly & helpful. We will be back, I think this is the start of a family tradition for us, thanks KOA :-)).

My friends and I enjoy spending some time around the Holidays at this KOA. It has been a tradition for about 10 years now. The kampsite and kabins are always clean and ready. All the people we meet, workers and other guests, are always warm and friendly. The Manager is so welcoming that it is like coming home when we arrive. This kampsite is a gem and always adds to the Christmas season for us.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The park itself was beautiful and the staff kept things very clean. We stayed in a cabin but we are looking forward to coming back with our RV.

I've been a member for a while now and truly have enjoyed staying at koa's all over the country.for the most part they have all been a joy to experience. I suppose if I had a suggestion for your location I would have to say I would appreciate the bathrooms being cleaner. I can image how difficult that can be, however, I depend on them beacuse I do not have a trailer with bathroom. Thanks

We always have agreat time. We did miss the campfire and movie nights this time.

Great place to stay at Thanksgiving. The pool could be heated a little more as it is too cold to swim in at night. The staff is very nice and the property is kept very clean.

we stayed for the first time at this KOA. The amenities were as expected. Really enjoyed the outside tables, and firepit. There were two big problems we found. There was minimal HOT water regardless of the time of day we tried to shower.(warm then tepid,). The A/C unit had a setting for heat, and there was absolutely no heat. We almost froze the first night of our stay. Not quite what we expected

Had a fantastic 1st time visit to KOA. Everything was beyond our expectations. Thank you. Please send us our KOA card.

The kids loved the deluxe cabin. The photos showed an indoor two burner stove, but ours did not have that. Also, certain amenities, like rope climbing and train rides were not available, but overall it was fabulous.

This KOA is nice enough. But the cabins and campsites are very close together with no trees and very little privacy. Also, though they claim they offer free wi-fi, we could not get it to work at all. When we mentioned this to the camp hosts, they just shrugged and said they had been aware of the problem for a while but could not figure out how to fix it (yet they still advertise free wi-fi).
