Campground Reviews

The KOA South Bend was very clean and organized. All the staff went out of their way to make the stay enjoyable for our family!

Nicest Campground I've ever been to. GREAT Service, CLEAN

People were friendly, seemed overly concerned about security of the park. Pool was out of order, the ice cream shop was closed. Did not seem to be up to KOA standards.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comments. As usual and as advertised, our pool is open between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day weekend. The same thing with our activities. The Gelato bar is open on the weekends in the afternoons, except for the late night game football weekend. Sorry.

The owner of the business was a complete jerk. I was advised of a price over the phone for myself, my dad and FIL. When I got there he called me a liar and said "my staff never make mistakes" I explained its ok it happened, and can be a teaching tool. He physically approached me. I will continue to NEVER recommend the KOA group and demoralize their name as long as he is the owner.

All our prices are set for two people on one campsite. They can be checked online or by phone. All additional adults, kids and visitors pay an extra fee. This is also mentioned on confirmations. Honking the horn at the gate for no reason makes us approach you, even just to check what is going on.

Most expensive park during our 2 month, 6000 mile Summer vacation, plus a 4$ PP visitor fee, refunded if visitors leave within an hour, is not much money, but a helluva lot of inconvenience!

Italian restaurant next door is excellent. KOA facilities are very clean. Staff is friendly. It's a KOA that is a great launch point for the area

The tent village we stayed in had electricity and a cable jack. Next time I'll bring a little TV and an electric fan.

Big rigs just fit.... Very wooded with a little grass. Reserved and paid online for one night and when I arrived there was a $10 surcharge for pets. I think that for this campground $60+ for a night is excessive. Great Italian restaurant next door, it is their best asset.

The site you were on is 70ft long. It was the Holiday weekend, and on top of that, it was home opener weekend for the Notre Dame football season 2014. We are sorry if you didn't like our prices.

WE had a very relaxing Thursday thru Monday weekend. If we get a chance we will stay at your South Bend/Elkhart North KOA again. Thank you for making us feel like part of the family.

This campground is very well managed, offers a great environment, and represents KOA extremely well.

We had great time and totally satisfied with the cleanliness and friendly staff. Site was well maintained, and quite good activity for the kids. Absolutely no bug and/or mosquitoes issue.

Lots of space for backing in but being in the middle of the campground did not work when garbage bins were at either end of the park

I see no reason that ANY KOA affiliated Kampground should have a "pet fee" especially $3.50/pet x 4 pets?! I'm picking up my dogs own feces. Am I paying for the fence surrounding Kamp K9?! Recommend this policy cease to exist throughout ANY KOA ( Corporate or franchise) Kampground. This info was not given to me when making the reservation when I answered the question of how many dogs I had.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your input. We feature two dog runs. We clean our dog runs daily, empty the trash bins, provide doggie bags for you, give away doggie treats at check in and there are night lights at the dog parks. Our prices are based on 2 people, every additional adult, kid or dog pays extra.

The campground was clean but old and dated. It seemed to serve as a landing pad for big rigs and RVers looking for somewhere to part for the night. What upset me the most is that you book your site on KOA.com. We have 2 kids, 1 and 3. On the website it shows free. When you arrive, they charged us even more money for dogs and the kids. Will not be back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our prices are no secret and you can check them out either by phone or on the internet. Also our webpage doesn't show kids are free. There is a column for adults 18+, kids 1-17 and free 0-0 (zero), means we charge for kids. It was also worded out for you in the confirmations.
