Campground Reviews

Jul 14, 2013
No delay at check in. Escorted directly to our site with no delays. Perfect.
Jul 14, 2013
The campsite was roomy and accessible for our large fifth wheel camper. People were helpful and courteous. Great if you have pets.A little pricey, but overall a good experience.

We pulled in for overnight, the parking to register is not obvious, we were admonished for parking in the gate area. The site they gave us was so small we could hardly fit and could not open our slide out.

It was our last available site on a busy Holiday weekend and we asked you if you would be fine with it. On weekends like this we truly recommend to make reservations early or at least call in.

We love this campground as it allows single night Kabin rental on weekends and is a 12 hour drive from our home making it a good stopping place while headed out west. Bathroom stalls with doors that open inward could be reversed :-)

I understand when camping you always get someone who cant seem to follow the the noise curfew. The last night of our stay the people 3 tent sites down from us were so loud.They were extremely loud. Wished someone from the koa would have went down there and asked them to quite down. Other than that we enjoyed our stay. Nice clean koa with a nice friendly staff.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're so sorry about the noise level. How wonderful it would be if just everybody would follow the rules and show some common sense and respect.

The only reason I will not give you high rating is because we were harassed by managements all weekend day and night about noise and music we were not even that loud. Plus the train is so bad we deal with it! It was more intrusive. if you want to have fun with friends don't come here this is great place for senior citizen and RV's Your store, ice cream parlor, dog corral and clean bathroom great

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

If you want to party all night long or are a loud group, this campground might not be the right choice for you in all honesty. We will keep doing what we think is the right thing to do and will enforce our quiet hours from 10pm to 8am. Thank you.

I love this KOA! I go every year 3, or 4 times a year at least! Love to see it improve year after year and everything that Patricia and Thomas are adding to it!
Jul 09, 2013
neat pet place...with some trees to pee on--dogs like that. not quite as level a site as advertised
Jul 09, 2013
We were led to our site by a guide and made to feel comfortable immediately. The sites were very clean (and flat!)and all the amenities I expect at a KOA were there. I wanted to stay longer!
Jul 09, 2013
My husband, my kids, and myself had a great time at your camp! We only live about 5 mins down the road, but will defintely visit again!! We loved the atmosphere, it was very family friendly and quite a bit to do throughout the day with the kids.
Jul 09, 2013
Patricia and Thomas were both wonderful and so was their staff. The camp sites are a little too narrow and the mesquitos were biting like crazy. The basketball court needs new nets and some attention to some of the other facilites is also warranted. Overall it is a nice facility and we enjoyed our stay.
Jul 09, 2013
We arrived after the office closed and Thomas was excellent in helping us check in and find our campsite and get settled.

Please don't be mad at us, because your rental unit wasn't in the best shape. We tried to help as much as possible. Sorry!

Great KOA. It was really nice to have someone waiting at the gate to escort us to our site. Will probably stay here on our way home.
Jul 08, 2013
We have stayed here on two occasions - 2009 and this trip. We really enjoyed it both times. The hosts are super friendly and helpful. Everything is clean. Campground is peaceful (note that our stays were not on weekends - whether that makes a difference, we don't know). Some Kabins and picnic tables need a coat of varnish...I am sure they will get to it! Appreciated later check out time.
Jul 08, 2013
Was given false information over the phone on check in time, was charged extra for checking in early. Men's bathroom had horrible smell, crowded sites, nice pool.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the incorrect information. It was a misunderstanding. The clerk did answer the question about store hours, not check in time.
Jul 08, 2013
The owners are the friendliespeople we have experinced since camping with KOA....we will be back soon.....Dave and Donnat
Jul 08, 2013
The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is the noise at night. There were no quiet hours enforced. The campground was awesome, workers wonderful, facilities beyond great. Clean! Everything you want is here. We tented at deluxe site and really liked it.
Jul 08, 2013
Friendly staff who were always available for questions, directions or assistance. Very clean campground with several activities to see and do. Nice fenced in pet park for our dogs. Clean bathrooms. We will definitely stay there again!!

Hi I just wanted to say that I did enjoy my time at the KOA in South Bend. You have clean facilities and courteous staff. However, I couldn't help but feel concerned about the two goats and the donkey at your facility. One goat had some sort of injury on his leg and I am concerned about his health. Do these animals have veterinarian care? Please let me know what you have done about this.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yes everybody who knows us and camps here a few times know that the goats and the donkey are in excellent care. I answered your question privately by email. Thanks for asking anyway and I'm sure my answer makes you feel better.

Nice clean safe campground! Staff is always so kind and helpful! Pool is very refreshing and love the ice cream socials!! We will be back soon!

The campground itself is very nice and it is extremely well kept. The issue we had was with one employee. He was constantly telling us we were doing things wrong. For example kids riding bikes too fast, parents talking too loud around fire. We came there to relax and have fun and I have to say Thomas did take away a little of both. I understand the need to have rules but he was a little extreme.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Did you know we had several complaints about your kids riding their bikes recklessly and scaring other campers? Safety first! Always. And yes, our quiet time is 10pm to 8am and we enforce it. Our campers appreciate this and there is still plenty of time to relax, it doesn't need to be at midnight.
Jul 05, 2013
As always, an awesome stay. I challenge you to find such great accommodations with an squally friendly staff.
Jul 04, 2013
Very nice staff, easy to find. A bit tight for our rig (45' plus toad), but otherwise very nice.

Our stay was very enjoyable and we plan to camp here again next year.
Jul 04, 2013
Very nice and clean. Staff was very accommodating. Thomas was very nice and helpful. Keep up the good work. P.S. Sidewalk loos good!!
Jul 04, 2013
A+++++++++++
Jul 04, 2013
This campground was very clean, the staff extremely nice and helpful. I will definitely stay here again when traveling west. Thank you for your hospitality.
Jul 04, 2013
This was the best campground that we stayed at on our 7 day vacation!
Jul 03, 2013
Great time, very clean and the staff excellent!

This KOA is a beautiful park but the management makes it even better. They are truly trying to make your stay extra special by being so courteous and helpful from the minute you arrive. The only possible negative would be for big rigs to beware of the tight spots between the trees. Can't get your awning out sometimes because there are too many trees too close together--but the shade is great.
Jul 02, 2013
We phoned in with some questions - all information was either "I don't know" or incorrect. But, campground was great and kids in office were darling. Great destination campground for locals.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We agree with you, "Don't know" is not an acceptable answer. We will work with our staff members. Give us a couple of more weeks and we will be there! We are sorry.
