Tent Reviews

I enjoyed the service thoroughly, unfortunately, the pictures online were rather deceiving. It wasn't very spacious, so there wasn't much privacy. It was a pain in the neck trying to leave with the amount of cars, and the lack of space, as well as all the screaming kids everywhere. I really appreciated the convenience of the office, and all they had to offer. However, it was just a bit too crowded

Very friendly staff. Clean bathrooms and campgrounds. The prices in their convenient store are reasonable. Just a few minutes walk to the beach.

Our 3 nights stay was so much fun! The kiddos had a blast with all the different activities and the staff were all helpful and friendly! We will definitely be back! The only comment/complaint we had was all the smoke inhalation we experienced from the campers next to our site bc they constantly had their fire on through out the weekend but I think KOA can't control that...

We tent camped here as the State Park camping was closed. Enjoyed the convenience of the bathhouse and laundry mat. The grounds were kept up nice, and liked the wood chip surface. Nice atmosphere with the "train" shuttle bus. Wish there was a ping pong table.

Pros: Campground was clean, staff was friendly. Cons: The noise was unreal. Most sites around us had small children so it was like a summer camp. The sites are very small and close together so no privacy at all. Kids woke us at 7:15 just making normal kid noise. Security riding by on golf carts all evening was annoying. Not a fun or relaxing place unless you have or really like kids.

Not reccomended if your a tent camper.very limited tent spots.small &uneaven spots & paid more per night then any where I've ever camped.they also failed to mention that construction would be going on all day within 50ft of our site for both least I got some peace from 12-1 when the workers took lunch.ahhh the great outdoors,the birds,bees,tractors,jackhamers...Gota love it...

Our stay was great. I am a Hotel Manager and really appreciated the clean sites and restrooms. I have already made reservations for next month.

Employees were extremely nice and helpful. Was so surprised on how clean the whole place was. Bathrooms and showers were cleaner than any gas station or rest stop bathrooms than I have ever seen. Just loved this KOA, it was beautiful location with marvelous people.
