Airstream Reviews

We had a lovely weekend in our airstream. There was a lot on site to entertain our daughter, plus the location is a perfect proximity to beautiful beaches.

Everyone was so friendly and nice! The campground was beautiful and we had tons of fun.

The KOA was great, except our last night about 1 am, the propane ran out! It was very cold. Finally I found the small space heater in closet. That barely kept us warm. In the morning after some difficulty, we had propane delivered, a nearly empty tank that lasted for 5 minutes and died before we finished making breakfast. We had no hot water to wash up before leaving. Very disappointing!

Great facility and helpful staff. An outstanding value for anybody with kids. So much for them to do!

We had an issue with something that did not work. It took them 2 days to fix. I'm disappointmented with this visit.

This is my second visit to the site. The first time, I was quoted one price and overcharged when I checked in. The recent visit, same thing again! And we are talking about over a one hundred dollar difference! Every time I point this out, no one notifies the manager. They simply say "sorry, you must have gotten it wrong?!" That's ridiculous! Be prepared for them to overcharge!

Great staff that quickly helped with problems and wonderful setting. Better if Airstream A06 had central heat with thermostat rather than noisy electric heater and if cabin 212 had a real stove not just a microwave. Cabin 212 had rodents in walls that made noise at night...needs attention.The miniature golf need some upgrading and leveling so balls don't always roll to the edge.

It was very clean, had lots of activities for the kids. Staff was super helpful as well. We'll definitely be coming back!

we are in our 70s. Visiting this time of year when it is quiet was wonderful. Probably would not like it if too crowded. Airstream was beyond expectations. wonderful

The KOA environment is super fun and friendly. Kids and adults have everything they need to enjoy the camping experience in this fantastic location.

So much fun for the kids. The staff were so helpful. One man even gave us a ride in the golf cart when my 5 year old was having a melt down.

The Airstream trailer that we stayed in was warm and cozy, the grounds were clean with many nice areas that were safe for children. We want to come again and bring our 2 grandsons I know they'd love it too. Plus we're looking at other KOA sites for next summer. I love it that KOA provides so many places with cabins and trailers, we don't really camp anymore, but still want to enjoy the outdoors.

The staff was friendly and campsite was clean. The reason I did not rate it as great is because the landscape wasn't as nice as what was pictured. You are close to the beach (driving) but it seemed closer in the photos. There are not that many trees either. It was a wonderul experience staying in an Airstream!

Great property. Lots of cabins, the airstreams are great. However I would fear for a busy period because of the low number of showers throughout the property. Staff is amazingly friendly and helpful. Clothhangers in airstream would help, beds in airstream are not that great. Garbage pickup is perfect! To bad there is a high number of constantly barking dogs.

Awesome stay. We love this place. One suggestion...Please have more people staffing the bike rental/mini golf area. We waited over 20 minutes to rent clubs/balls and the line never moved so we finally gave up. Maybe have a separate line for the bikes since it takes a long time to sign waivers and give instructions. We'll be back sooner rather than later!

Great campground very family oriented. Clean and fun!

Everything at this KOA was perfect. Staff very friendly and helpful. Any problems at all were dealt with immediately. If I had to complain about anything at all, it would just be to suggest using fabric softener on the bath towels as they were a bit rough.

We love this KOA, the grounds are always well maintained and staff is always very friendly. We have done our church's family camp here for the last 5 years and we will continue to do it here. Cheryl was the best Wagon Master ever she is a rock star!!

Our family has thoroughly enjoyed this campground a handful of times, each time bringing new friends with us! We've come to love how friendly and engaged they are with kids but could not be more thankful this time around of how ALL staff immediately responded in helping us find a child who was separated from our large group while playing.

Let me start by saying "I am NOT a camper type girl!" However, I found our airstream to be very clean and the camp ground very family friendly. This kids had a fabulous time and surprisingly so did I! I could really get use to "glamping." Thanks for a great stay, we will be back!!!

We have stayed in an airstream once a year for the past several years and enjoyed it each time. My only suggestion this time is to please clean the airstreams better. It was quite dirty inside when we arrived - floor and kitchen counter especially. Also the outside really needed to be washed too! It doesn't look very inviting anymore. Also more privacy for A-03 and A-04 would be nice

We stayed in an Airstrem for the first time and it had everything you would expect + outdoor BBQ + fire pit. The person who showed us around was extremely friendly and helpful. Only negative, I was asked to pay an extra USD 26 because they price had gone up since I booked/prepaid.

The television reception was very poor, however, we were too busy for being in front of it. To many thing to see in your area. We very much enjoyed the Airstreams.

Excellent, friendly and family oriented service! Very happy with both how Kim and Sherri took care of us!

This is an excellent place to spend vacation with the family. It is a safe place for the kids. We've been going here for 5 years, at least 1 to 2 times a year.
Aug 04, 2016
We love the fact it is so great for kids but too busy for no kid camping. Very clean, safe and lots of off site activities nearly. Best KOA we have stayed at.

Great place for kids. The airstream was an awesome experience. The staff was always friendly and helpful. Will definitely go back again.

Great facility, a couple of minor problems in the Airstream - table in desperate need of fix - cannot be used.

Great service. Had a little water leaking from airstream toilet. Attendants took care of it within 10 minutes. Amenities were great!
Jul 30, 2016
Lot of fun activities for the kids! We stayed in an airstream. My only concern was the cleanliness. The fans were very dirty, as well as the toilets. Everyone was very nice and helpful.

The Airstream was not well maintained. Steps broken, counter top coming apart, table parts old and falling apart, toilet leaked and needed repair, cobwebs not cleared away... overall, not a great campsite. The good news is the kids had a blast: Jumper/Bouncer was amazing. Pool was fun, but small. Trikes were a blast! Thanks... Time to repair your Airstreams!
