We have stayed many times and love it each time .

We LOVE this KOA. The owners are awesome, staff is friendly and very helpful and always willing to go the extra mile, grounds are nicely maintained and very clean, cabins are quaint and cozy with heat/air. Pool and park, 2 dog walk areas, game room, Gelato ice cream parlor, petting zoo, nice amenities! Beautiful pines fill the grounds and it's just a block from grocery and restaurants. LOVE IT!!!

Liked the trees, the sites are fairly well spaced and friendly staff. Not happy with paying extra for 2-3 grandkids to stay overnight. Overall satisfied and would come back.

Great place to stay while visiting Notre Dame!

THANKS AGAIN ...SEE YOU NEXT YEAR

With advanced notice, they got us in with a late Sat night arrival, though with a little confusion about having the cabin key available. Also, need a bit more powerful space heaters for the cabins when weather is so cold (20-30 degrees). Overall, another very nice trip to South Bend. Thanks!

Friendly owners but there is no need for hired staff to insult guests.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You are absolutely correct and we're very sorry about this. He is actually a hired Police Officer. I talked to him and he is sorry about the situation as well. Won't happen again, promise! We hope to see you next year again for some ND football weekends!
Nov 25, 2013
Fun and lots to do for kids. Staff is extremely nice and we'll miss them all

Attended to ND football games in November and stayed at this KOA. All services were first rate. Didn't care for the wristbands, but understand the necessity. Hope to return next fall.

The cabin was very cold even though we were told they were heated when we arrived all we had was a little space heater that did not do the trick. We so dissatisfied we checked out and Saturday and cut are trip short we could just not handle the rock hard mattress and freezing cold! Very very unhappy.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry for your inconvenience. We provided you with a second space heater, but even then, mother nature is hard to beat and it was very cold. We might think it over to be open that long, if we are not able to provide a satisfying service due to the very cold temps and snow.

Nice layout, easy in and out. Owners and staff were very accommodating and cheerful.

I met two girlfriends for a quilting getaway. We stayed in the deluxe cabin for two nights. It was perfect for our visit. We are already talking about when to plan our next get together!

Oops - I listed these remarks for Batesville. They should have been done here. Desk clerk - Benjamin - bright, cheerful, engaging young man. He should get a raise!

Rude at the gate. Heater in cabin barely worked. Door was broken and when we told workers they tried to blame us

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're sorry you didn't like your stay at one of our cabins. Wristbands are here to be worn, this is our form of crowd control. We'd like to provide a peaceful and safe place to stay for every camper and we are not a party place! Sorry!

I have stayed at this KOA a few times. when I made my reservation I asked not to be up front. Well he put us right up front. I asked to move he said he did not have anything. I go with 10 to 12 people every year. and spend almost $500 each time. Next year the group wants to rent a house or go back to a hotel. I have stayed at KOAs all over the counrty. This owner is the worst.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yes please rent a house or stay in a hotel in the future. You do our campground a favor! Your definition of having fun just doesn't match with our policies. Obnoxious and drunk, pointless! But we are the rude ones!

We love staying , the owners are more then helpful & friendly!! We will always come back to this koa

I traveled 545 Miles to see a Notre Dame football game for the first time. Not sure to stay at a KOA facility. The Staff was very friendly and polite. In addition the staff made sure things were pleasent for all campers to enjoy. Dave - Gettysburg PA

When we stayed at this site before, the owners/workers were not very friendly and we felt like we were being watched. As if they were waiting to pounce on us for doing something wrong or talking too loud. This last time they were a little better but it is still not a warm and fuzzy, relaxing place to stay

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We inform everyone, for instance, that quiet hours will be enforced. So don't be surprised if they are. Football weekends are very busy & our goal is to provide a peaceful place for everyone. Most people appreciate that. If your fun is defined to be drunk and loud, we suggest you go somewhere else.

The campground was fine. They seemed more interested in telling you what you couldn't do than making sure you had a good time. They had a silly rule that any visitor that wanted to come visit had to pay $5 per visit. Can you imagine paying to visit someone in a hotel? When we came in at night they checked to see if we had wrist bands and even shined a flashlight in the back seat of our car.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yes, it is our policy to charge for visitors year around. Visitors are welcome to use all our facilities!

We will come to this park again when we are in the area.Great people!!

We had two 2-room cabins with friends for the special holiday weekend boo-in-the-park. The cabins were sparkling clean and fresh. With 2 heaters in each cabin, we never felt the cold weather outside. There were many activities offered for the whole family and we had so much fun passing out candy to the trick-or-treaters. We cannot wait until next year!
Oct 29, 2013
Always an enjoyable stay with this crew! Thanks for a great long weekend!!
Oct 29, 2013
This KOA is one of our favorites. Owners and staff are the best and the halloween weekend was awsome.
Oct 29, 2013
Great amenities and clean facilities. Friendly staff. Our only disappointment was the wireless connection...hard to connect and could NOT stream Netflix movie.

Our lodge was not very clean. Windows very dirty. Curtain on door was filthy. Layers of dust and grime everywhere. For the price per night having basic amenities such as toilet paper and hand soap would be nice.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're very sorry that our lodge wasn't perfect, but you came out a day earlier to check out the lodge and it seemed to me that you liked it. Also there are 2 rolls of toilet paper and for the two of you for just two nights, it seems to be enough. You can always get more at the office. Just as ask.

this place is awesome! always has been. the only thing i would change would be a peoples choice award for the pumkin carving contest and the lot decorating contest as well. these people are the greatest! thanks so much to all of them for the great time! any soup left Pat?!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

There was just a little soup left, you guys ate it all! That's what it's here for! BTW: People's choice award is a good idea. Thanks for sharing!
