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.

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.

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.

Very good potential in this new KOA when the trees grow up and the grass fills in.

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.

Great location. Facilities nice and clean. Swimming area could have been slightly bigger and deeper, but still nice. Staff great.

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.

Very clean-both camping spot and restrooms/showers. Close to everything but don't "feel" like you are in the middle of everything.

Nice new facility. The trees need to mature. Outside of that - great!

Campground needed mowing and "grassy"areas were uneven (splotchy and missing patches). Dog park had not been mowed and dog poop was everywhere.

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.

ground was uneven at and lacked grass at the tent site. play ground was a little small. would be nice if they added swings. beach was very nice. shower house/ bathrooms were very nice and clean!

Really enjoyed the cabin that we stayed in for the second consecutive year. Missed having the billiards table and table tennis game in the game room.

The campground is very nice. Lots of activities for the kids to do... beach, fishing, paddle boats to rent at a very affordable rate, a play ground and a great bike/walking path around the lake. What made our stay less than desirable was the other campers. No one keeps their dogs on a leash or cleans up after them (even when its on campsite!) and the shuttle to the waterpark never showed up!

Our stay was very nice. We stayed in a cabin with 5 kids and they all had fun. The staff even extended our checkout time to 1130 am to give us more time to check out. Thanks for that.

Just about everything was excellant. Staff was friendlya nd helpful. The beach there was no so plesant. A lot of geese poop on the beach and the site we were at the sewer line ran up hill so the water from my trailer not run out all that well. Other than that the shower house was clean and in well condition and my dog like the dog play area.

The cabins are built extremely well and were very clean. It was a joy to stay in them!
Aug 12, 2014
Beautiful campground with lots of things to do!

Small trash not picked up at campsite. Not attractive, looks so unfinished.
Aug 12, 2014
Litter at site, Had 2 call for firepit cleaning, store staff was bothered by anyone coming in,,this has happened before, internet spotty, cable basic, beach nice, kids n dog area nice, for $50 a nite, not again,
Aug 12, 2014
This was a great place to stay, what more could you want!!!

Needs to improve road signage leading to the CG.
Aug 12, 2014
the staff were very friendly and the store was great. very nice and gas pumps too! cant wait to come back for a longer stay:)

Every person associated with the campground went above & beyond great. We had rented three cabins for ourselves & our family & they were spotlessly clean. We were already recommending your campground to family & friends on our way home.

We enjoyed our stay. We had spent an entire day on the beach last year, but this year we didn't like all the goose droppings so we didn't spend any time at all. We took a paddle boat over to the island for a picnic lunch, and there was goose droppings all over the cement. Perhaps the picnic area should be screened in. I think that I would shoot at least ten geese a day until they were gone!
