Campground Reviews

Sep 11, 2014
Staff were very friendly and campground was nice and neat. Great place to stay, lots of activities around.

Wonderful - the best KOA so far for us. The manager, Karl, was so helpful and went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable.

We enjoyed the time of year that we stayed at the park. I would not want to stay when it is full of people. Spaces are way too close. However, the space we had was very nice with the concrete patio, fire pit, and furniture. The layout is very confusing trying to find the best way to the camping spot. Also needs more signage to get to the park itself. Overall we would stay again.

Wonderful place to stay. Campsite was large and roomy. Will be better once trees grow in. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Ice machine was broke which was a hassle. We had to drive to buy ice. Not many people camping but cost was still on high side. I would think there would be an off season rate or discount when so few people are there. We will be back and will try other KOA sites.

Cabins are super cute. One cabin had bed bugs and we were with many family members forcing one family to stay at nearby hotel. HUGE bummer! Wish they would have checked the cabin beforehand.

Loved it there. So clean and inviting! The space between the campers was amazing. Everyother campground is always so crowded. The grounds did have lots of ruts, but that is the only downfall we had. Oh and the staff were very friendly.

Site too large, "game room" a joke, leeches in lake, no assistance in finding site, staff uninformed about services and area. Should have told us waterpark had closed the week before - we would have canceled our trip, which is probably why we were not informed of the closing.

The park was clean and quiet, and the staff was very friendly. I especially enjoyed my daily walks around the lake!

We have stayed here several times and we always have a great experience. The office staff is very nice and the campground is clean and well maintained.

Nice, convenient campground. Excellent value for the price. Nice playground.

Had been on the road for 8 hours and did not appreciate the check in girl's attitude when I asked for a different site... the place was almost empty... no signs to get you there off the highway... clean, new, great for kids, morning staff were wonderful...

Very clean bathrooms. Friendly staff. Good price. Lake is nice. Needs more trees and grass is not yet established. We plan to add it to our list of annual camp spots.
Aug 26, 2014
Very friendly staff, and considerate of staying later than check out. Nice place, and clean. Kabins are cute and we'll be back with friends.
Aug 26, 2014
Very good potential in this new KOA when the trees grow up and the grass fills in.
Aug 25, 2014
Great place to stay...so many activities to do there and the cabins are very nice. Wish we could reserve for just one night instead of a two night stay rule.
Aug 25, 2014
Great location. Facilities nice and clean. Swimming area could have been slightly bigger and deeper, but still nice. Staff great.
Aug 25, 2014
I loved the fact that you provided wifi.the only real issues we had were with the water pressure and then the sites had many ruts that if you weren't careful where you walked you could easily twist an ankle.
Aug 25, 2014
Very clean-both camping spot and restrooms/showers. Close to everything but don't "feel" like you are in the middle of everything.
Aug 25, 2014
Nice new facility. The trees need to mature. Outside of that - great!
Aug 25, 2014
Campground needed mowing and "grassy"areas were uneven (splotchy and missing patches). Dog park had not been mowed and dog poop was everywhere.
Aug 23, 2014
good camp store.sinage to get in was absent so hard to find. young staff could have been nicer

We had a great time, thank you for having us. My grandchildren did not want to leave, and the cabin was just perfect for all eight of us.

It was a great stay, but the geese waste was some what annoying the ground or grass was kind rough or uneven for the elderly.
