Campground Reviews

The KOA was very accomodating. There was a lot to keep my family busy.

They gave us a site that sat above a dysfunctional bathroom that smelled like it was overflowing with waste. There were other sites, the other site offered was at a dangerous drop off. We had no water at our site and the bathroom was at a downward walk that was slippery, and our entrance to our camp needed 4 wheel drive most times to get to the top. I will never recommend this camp.

The road is too close to the cabin, it is very dusty when cars dive by. You don't want to drink the water, since it is yellow color. Other things are good, we had six families stayed together and had fun.

Clean, safe, and lots to keep the kids happy! We will definitely be back.

Too dusty. Too hot. Not the best summer camp location. Would prefer a little cooler.

Great stay in deluxe cabin. Many activities that we enjoyed including movies dancing to live music and a hayride also. Only complaint was only 2 shade umbrellas by pool. We had one of them so it was fine for us.

We had originally planned to stay 4 nights but found that the location added 1 extra hour to our sightseeing plans. Based on your message we saved more than 13 dollars, since a refund to our original 4 day reservation was not offered by Koa. Overall ok.

Unfortunately, the weather was too hot, obviously not the fault of KOA. The view at our site was just as described: "spectacular and secluded". My only complaint was that we had noisy neighbors below but other than that we LOVED our site.

I made reservations through Scott @ the KOA. I told him what I was looking to rent & he suggested 2 cabins together on the hill. It was perfect! He was so helpful & nice. He gave us info & contacts for local activities, etc. The cabins & the grounds were neat & clean. We had a great time & look forward to coming back!

This camp is built on a hillside which gave extra space between tent sites. We saw quite a bit of wildlife. We will be returning.

I would recommend this camp ground to families with children. For us it was nice to have a place for the night. The restrooms were an issue to us. They were difficult to get to. Through others camps and then down stairs across the road and then upstairs. With a large rv with toilets this would be ok but we have a pop up with no bathroom.

Quite nice Place but the restrooms are a bit old and Need maintenance. All in all Good to the nice location

Every thing was great! The staff was very friendly. Several of the families that were in our group have young adults with special needs and your staff was so great when it came to their needs. We will definitely come back which will make it 13 yrs of camping at your site...

Beautiful campground, very clean. Jumping pillow-genius! We will be back.

The owner is super nice. The site is being worked on and do not expect wifi unless you are near the office. The electric outlets work only with RV. We came in our truck and roof top tent so we did have any outlets that we could use

We had a great time. The cabin was clean and comfortable and the campgrounds had a lot of activities that the kids enjoyed. Sherri (sp?) and Bridgett were super nice and a lot of help when we had questions. Thank you for the great weekend!

Very enjoyable & relaxing, we will return again & recommend you.

We were told we'd have wifi; we didn't. The campsite wasn't clearly marked. One bathroom was locked. Men's bathroom wasn't clean. Hot shower was good!

Had a good time! Staff was kind and there cabins were very clean. My family and I were a little upset with all the dust that was kicked up from the bulldozer type trucks while we were trying to eat our meals outside. Other than that it was a blast! thank you very much.

will rate higher when bathroom renovations are complete.

wasnt sure what we were getting into and it turned out to be one of our greatest camp trips in a long time. friendly staff, great camsites, great activities-(especially country music under the stars with hot dog/marshmallow roast) and good/clean facilities. The pool was great for our little one, as well as the awesome jumping pillow. And the lake was a pleasant short walk with nice hiking trails
Jun 04, 2013
very awesome area. should be more available trash cans for the upper levels and shorter Distance to showers from camp areas
Jun 03, 2013
It was a lot of fun, lots of activities for the kids, loved our lodge, can't wait to go again.

All the staff were extremely friendly and there were lots of activities. Thank you to Shari Scott Rex Karen and all the others for a wonderful stay. Best KOA ever!
May 29, 2013
Overall the stay was good, except on the last day. There was a group of people who were not camping who came to use the jump pillow and they were driving very fast and drinking while driving.
May 28, 2013
Great activities for kids. Didn't like that some local rif raft was allowed to come into the park to play. Sites are OK but for a long 5th wheel or motorhome it's hard to back in.
May 28, 2013
Loved the jumping pillow, cabins were great, very friendly staff, we would love to come back for our next vacation. Thanks a lot! Vidya and Ganesh Swaminathan

Lots of activities and very friendly staff. The kids loved the jumping pillow!

I really enjoyed my stay. Staff is friendly and very helpful. I will be coming back

Great spot for visiting the coast,a beautiful area, the playground and the pool are great and management put some effort into activities for the family. But- the restrooms were filthy and run-down, and there were not enough facilities. Plus, with 3-4 families camping on each site, the campground was totally crowded and loud. Not my expectation for a KOA, at all.
May 28, 2013
Great place, great staff, and great activities. A little dusty, but nice.
