We were rather disappointed with this campsite. The pitch had cigarette ends everywhere and there were only 4 toilets on the site, the locks didn't function on the doors, there were cobwebs everywhere and the drain in the shower was clogged with hair.

Messed us about on arrival despite having pre booked and then the electric at our pitch didn't work. No offer of a refund/discount .just not good enough.

Very relaxing stay. Very well managed, clean and well looked after. Many thanks.

Nice, clean KOA. Staff was friendly & my overall experience was good. Only complaint is they need more restrooms or potties throughout the campground. An outhouse by the playground would have been great. I think there's only two shower/potty buildings so if you're on a walk or at the plygrnd w/ your kids there's noplace to go without walking a mile. Otherwise I would give 5 stars :o(

Very nice campground, very clean, everything worked well and felt safe. We live near by so we probably won't return anytime soon. We were just doing a test run our new airstream

Poor signage to sites, bathrooms were clean but sparse, long walks to the bathrooms from anywhere, and not near camping sites at all. Too many RV's mixed with tent camping sites, roads steep and slippery. NOT near Lake at all, and lake is nearly empty. Nice people on staff

A little too rustic for us...

We already booked another stay. We had our grandkids and they had so much fun with all the activities. And we loved the rock band and bbq. Thank you for a great time

My son and I enjoyed the KOA campground and all of the activities. But the motorcycles driving around all day ruined the stay for me. I complained on Sunday to a staff member at the store, but the motorcycles kept going. Exhaust, dust, noise, all of these ruined it for me. I missed the birds and the fresh air. Your policy stated no one under 16 can be driving and these were about 8 or 9.

We enjoy this quiet campground.

When I arrived, there was someone in my spot and the person was not around so I offered to move to another spot which mad my stay very difficult because I was there with a group and didn't get to camp with them. I had to keep going back and forth with supplies from my site to my friends site this was a huge hassle .also the electric hook ups don't have a standard plug in for .extention cord.

Bathrooms were dirty on the second day. Usually they are cleaned before everyone wakes up. Toilets were clogged as well.

Very friendly staff. Great location for the POZO Saloon concerts. Some of the guest were a bit too rowdy on Fri night other than that the stay was great.

Beautiful setting, friendly host's. Wild Turkeys strolling through the campground. We'll be back.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. I admired that there were so many activities available, playground, volleyball court, pool, etc. and look forward to bringing the children next time. Thank you!!

Very good location for someone wanting to visit the many towns and cities nearby.

Had a good time, we are looking forward to returning in the future. We really liked space 99 it was nice and relaxing.

Our stay was nice except that there was something wrong with the septic system. The entire campground smelled awful in the evenings. I did like that it had some big secluded RV sites.

We enjoyed our stay. People were extremely nice and helpful. The pool was nice and clean but cold! Not heated in April. Enjoyed the frisbee golf. Campgrounds were beautiful and clean. Our rv is on smaller side (26') but bigger rv's may have trouble fitting. Definitely a tenters paradise. Only two bathrooms though. Great hiking. Would definitely stay there again.

sites are not level.

Extremely helpful staff, fun lake, beautiful scenery, beautiful scenery, beautiful scenery , and the kids loved the jumping pillow. Our stay was in April and we had perfect weather and thankfully no problems with wasps like I had read on other peoples reviews. It was an awesome time! Did I mention the beautiful scenery?

Great campground and staff. Site we had was large and pretty secluded. Restrooms clean and a well stocked store. Thanks so much.

I was not happy with this KOA camp. I have been to other KOA's but this one is not up to expectations. We were at site 43 and the water faucet produced yellow-tinted water- it was sediment of some sort. How hard can be be to fix it by putting a filter in? Secondly, the pool was not open when we were there, neither was movie night. If you charge $55 a night, please do it right. Thank you.

Beautiful grounds. We had an unattractive campsite. Dump station was poorly maintained.

Spacious, clean, convenient. Passport America made the price do-able. Young woman registering in the office unfortunately not very , otherwise all good.friendly
Mar 25, 2014
Our grand kids had a super time playing with the other kids at the park on the air pillow. When we take them with us thay ask for thus KOA by name. We will be back.

Great but quick stay...thank you!

The staff was very friendly and helpful, I didnt like that the internet was useless I like to stay in touch with family and extremely poor cell service in the area, not the campgrounds fault I know but if I had cell service the internet wouldnt have matter as much. The showers and restrooms where clean, very hilly area, had a good time and I would go back
