We had a wonderful time! Can't wait to go back!
Aug 04, 2014
Really need a class in costumer service!!! Spent $130 to be yelled at several times. My husband rented a bike and while riding he dropped his bottled water making my son behind him skid a little due to stopping so fast. One of the workers yelled " it will be $40 if you break a tire"". Really!!! We felt more like criminals than welcome guest!!! We have been coming here since I was a kid!!! No good!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Really! Skidding a little and doing half wheelies in front of our employee is a different story, isn't it. He wouldn't have said something if he hadn't been concerned about your safety and well being.

Nothing to do! No crafts or activities! Won't be back. Very clean and nice employees!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Nothing to do! Like movies, petting zoo, foosball, air hockey, darts, basketball, volleyball, swimming pool, hiking trail, horseshoes, ping pong, banana bikes, Gelato bar, mini golf, glow wagon ride, and all the daily activities going on at our day camp for the kids, just to name a few.

It was a wonderful stay, the cabin was a great choice, the pool was great (unfortunately the weather got cold for mid July, but no fault of the KOA so we only were able to use it for ten minutes before storms hit), the amenities were great. Staff was wonderful. Thanks for a great stay!

The cabin and tent areas do not have access to water. I have not seen this problem before at other campgrounds. This is my first KOA experience.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm not sure if I understand your comment correctly. All our tent sites have water at the site. We also have a camping kitchen which is accessible 24h. There are also a few water spigots in between the cabins.

We love this KOA. Patrica and Tom are great hosts. They make you feel so welcome. We have been coming here for 10 years. We are now renting 8 cabins for our growing family. We spend a week every July. Grand kids love all the fun they have here. It is totally the best place to spend a vacation. We love love it here.

We love you too!

Patricia and Thomas are wonderful. They really care about their place and want to make sure everything is great for the campers, been going there for 4 years now and great every year!

This was my 6th year at this camp for a vintage camper rally in which I participate. Thomas and Patricia have always been extremely accommodating, and go above and beyond to make this a wonderful experience. They keep the camp spotless. There are many activities, and we always look forward to the next visit!

Patricia and Thomas are fun and friendly camp hosts. All the staff are very friendly. Our cabin was tidy, the camp grounds are very nice. Excellent wifi. Showers are cleverly outside the restroom area, in the main area. We didn't partake in the Saturday night movies, gelato. or pool, but all were bustling.

Staff and management were professional and courteous. We very much enjoyed our 4 days. I had Strawberry Ice Cream very evening. It was great as was the service. Thanks. Vern and Lynn Platt- from Ontario

Wonderful Campground. We will be coming back in the future.

We paid for a deluxe Kabin that sleeps six. We had four people and were shocked to be charged an extra $4/day fee for each child. This campground is not a destination vacation. No daytime activities like the other KOA's have. The bikes they have for rent are old and worn. The putt putt golf is a joke. And let's give special mention to the train that goes by at all hours of the night. All night.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

A wonderful place full of fun things to do and with friendly staff. The only problem was that we didn't stay longer!

Very CLEAN very Friendly.Wish the mini golf arcade and petting zoo was upgraded. We were looking forward to the movie also till the kids seen it was from 1975 that didnt interest the 13yr olds or my 4yr old. Nice touch with the bikes thou. Kids had alot of fun even thou I would stay at this campground again I would plan to stay more with upgrades. thank you, we did have a great time:)

This was our first stay at a KOA and it was wonderful! Everything was nice but the people were even nicer! The owners seem to be wonderful people who really care about their guests. They have an employee named Lenny who is by far one of the nicest people we've encountered at any business. He was wonderful and made our trip even more enjoyable! Thank you KOA Granger for a wonderful trip!

Some things very good, and some things not so good. For camping in a cabin, more expensive than a nice hotel, but with fewer amenities. Trouble with electrical failure in cabin my daughter slept in, can't run several things at once or will blow breaker to two buildings. Then asked for a grill for the day, got it later in afternoon and it was in very poor shape, dirty and greasy.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

On a muggy day if you have the a/c running full throttle, all the stove tops are on, microwaves are being used and several crock pots are fired up, it isn't a big surprise that a breaker can pop. And with all respect the grill was reserved for dinner time.

I had a simply wonderful first-time experience at KOA. Everyone on site was kind, helpful and really wanted us to have a great time! Everything was extremely well-maintained and super fun for two six year-olds. Even the ice cream was fantastic! We can't wait to return.
Jun 26, 2014
Affordable, Clean, Friendly Staff, Location was great for our activities.

We stayed in a cabin. They were clean and very nice! My son loved the donkey and goat on the premises. There was a train track nearby, but it didn't seem to bother us while we were sleeping. The full time staff was great!

Kabin - found candy and wrappers in the beds, spiders along the walls

Does it have to be 400 characters? OK. I love this KOA. The staff is very friendly, and they make sure that I have exactly what I need. Everything is very neat and tidy, and the one problem I had was corrected quickly and with discretion. Will I come back? Yes I will.
Jun 16, 2014
Owners are very friendly and accommodating. Stayed in a cabin with kitchenette and bathroom. It was well equipped and comfortable. Would have liked to had a mop.
Jun 16, 2014

Our cabin had a lot of large ants around and in it. Totally understand it's outdoors but we actually ended up taking some home with us unfortunately.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry for your inconvenience. We will talk to the Orkin man.

Owners are great. Workers are great. Stayed in a lodge but someone had smoked in it. Smelled bad even though we opened all of the windows during all 3 days. Told the owner when we first arrived. He said it wasn't cigarettes, we disagree... Other than this one problem it is a great Kampground. Our family reunion has been here for the past 12 years

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm so sorry this happened to you. We have to check our cabins better, since all our cabins are non smoking. Cigarette smokes really stinks!
Jun 10, 2014
This campground is in a great location. The owners are great and go above and beyond to make sure your stay is great. Also, worth mentioning, Lenny was very helpful and his customer service was great throughout the weekend.

I love my Granger Indiana KOA! We go every year and we have more fun each year. Thank goodness for the new pool heater. The hayride was awesome. One of the movie 'Jaws' that was shown was not really age appropriate but I loved it. The restrooms were always clean and the cabin was comfortable because we needed both the heat on one night and the air the next day. See you soon KOA

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comment. Actually as per IMDb, the movie Jaws is rated PG. We show only NR, G, PG or PG-13 rated movies on our "classic movies on big screen" shows.

We love this KOA!!! The staff is overly friendly! Our cabin was in perfect condition. Looking forward to another visit.
