Loved the cleanliness. The friendly and helpful employees. The nice sites and the store deliveries. The program in the mornings for the children and the early evening activities for the whole family organized by a church group who were unbelievable enthusiastic.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Would rate at 5 but some of the sites are very small.

Lots of clean showers, very friendly and helpful staff, although sites are close together, there are many trees, making the campground feel more private. We appreciated the help parking in our site. Only one disappointment was that there was no recycling of plastics, cans, etc.

The staff and location of the campground was great. The layout of the campsites for campers was horable,there was not enough room to park your camper without having people move there vehicles,and after we parked we had to park in front of our fire barrel so we couldn't have a fire. No yard even for our puppies,and I don't usually complain about price but this KOA was the highest price around.

Basic expecations not met. Based on the premium summer rates, I would expect the central bathroom to be cleaned more often based on usage or condition. The showers needed a good deep cleaning. Many of the camping spots are on top of one another. Only a few employees acknowledged their guests. They are not focused on the customer.

A great place to stay away from the high paced lifestyle close by. A diamond in the rough.

would like for you to consider leaving the pool open later in the summer. by the time everyone gets back to the campground from doing activites it is always after 9pm so the kids don't get to enjoy the pool. may consider closing it around 11pm in warm summer months. thanks.

We stayed during a horrible rain storm. Then had a rescue crew take over our camp site for two hours. Interesting to watch, but not very relaxing.

Gravel site was great considering the rainy weather.

Kampground in beautiful area (with lots to do) - plenty of staff to help with any problem. Bath & showers kept clean. Lots of small sites make for crowded campground. Bingo night turned out to be proselytizing bible thumpers - should have been warned. Overall though - pleasant.

Thoroughly enjoyed out stay in Space 86. Especially enjoyed the ministries that had Bible School for our kiddos. They were wonderful! Also enjoyed the improvements you have made to the area we were in....the privacy bushes, etc. it is really nice, and helped make our visit enjoyable. Thanks again!

We enjoyed camping close to the river! The grandchildren really enjoyed the day camp and we had a blast with Family nite activities. The camp site was clean and well laid out. I wish that there was a building with flush toilets where they had the portable toilets.Better than nothing for the tent campers.

this park is not built for RV's 40' plus, great for short RV's and campers/tents. Thanks to Jimbo for watching our dog during a medical emergency.

Campground staff always great, site 13 where we stayed had a sewer pipe up about 8 inches from ground which made it hard to empty waste water and other, all others I saw were level with ground and our site needed gravel, when it rained we were in the mud. And these sites were the most expensive on river, balcony, full hookup. Otherwise good camping.

Everything is great..The prices are getting so high that you can almost stay in a nice hotel for the same price...

It was a wonderful stay! I do wish the pool stayed open a little later for the kids. Most places we stay at the pool stays open until at least 10. Thank you! Awesome staff awesome stay!

Campground was as always, very nice. Great activities. Time to tear down the bath house and start over. It's a disgrace.
Jul 01, 2014
Perfect setting, beautiful campsite, nice facilities. We loved it there and wish we had booked longer.

Very friendly KOA "helpers"! They assisted in numerous ways. Our first time camping with trailer we purchased donor was learning experience but these folks are great! The grounds are kept safe & clean! Two important factors for our family. We even had two cabins!
Jul 01, 2014
All was fantastic! Cannot wait to be back!

AS always the KOA at Townsend was great. The camp ground was clean, easy access to every facility, and the staff from check in to check out was very friendly and helpful. I plan on going back to this KOA again and would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys camping.

The site was too small for my 34 ft fifth wheel and could not run out the slides for the trees. Had to pull rig out into road some to get slides out. Was not offered another site. No place to park truck out of road. Site was too small and they were told size when reserv. was made. The sewer hookup was a foot above ground. Crap does not flow uphill.

Mowed site while was camping, hit camper with rocks and trimmer got grass all over our towels and clothes that was drying. The river is great tubing. Get season pass from River Rat.
