Campground Reviews

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.

The owners are the friendliespeople we have experinced since camping with KOA....we will be back soon.....Dave and Donnat

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.

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.

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.

As always, an awesome stay. I challenge you to find such great accommodations with an squally friendly staff.

Very nice staff, easy to find. A bit tight for our rig (45' plus toad), but otherwise very nice.

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.

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.

This is a nice park. The staff is curtious and friendly. There are plenty of things to do and the grounds and buildings are neat and clean. They are pet friendly and have a dog playground and a dog run. My only complain is that the pet areas are not well maintained and the dog run is quite far from the main park area and is not easily found.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm so sorry you had troubles finding the dog run. We are installing a light on a pole by the dog run, so it can be found more easily. The other dog run has a light already, so you can walk your dogs even in the dark. The dog runs are marked on the sitemap.

We stayed in the Kamping Studio Lodge and I have to say, that is the way to go. Very clean and comfortable. This is the 2nd time we have stayed here and we would definitely come back. The owners are great and really know the true meaning of customer service.
Jun 25, 2013
We had a wonderful experience with your KOA. The owners and staff were very cordial and helpful. Please book us again on July 3, 2013. The same site would be fine if available. Thank you again for a pleasant stay. Joe

Despite the late night arrival we had an excellent reception. Southbend KOA staff waited for us and guided us into our site. Very helpful. We would highly recommend them.

Seemed like you were in a real tucked away camp spot, yet walking distance to an amazing Italian restaurant. Friendly staff and good environment for pets and kids.

Really enjoyed our stay here. The cabin was clean and the family running the establishment were always around and easy to reach. The pool was nice and the petting zoo and hay ride were nice bonuses.

Everything great, except for the trains in the night. Kept the fan going to drown it out a bit. Otherwise, very clean bathrooms,nice pool and playground area and VERY attentive employees.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I will forward your compliments to all our employees. Thank you!

Had a great time. The only thing needed is a night time presence. There were unattended young kids running through the office halls between showers screaming and throwing soap this was after midnight around 1am. Other than that we had a great time and hope to return soon.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comment. I agree totally with you. I just think this would be a job for caring parents.
