Campground Reviews

Aug 04, 2014
This was a first class resort. Our cabin was spotless and comfortable. The grounds had a lot to do. Our kids loved camping here. The only thing I would recommend is having a staff member clean up the goose droppings on the beach daily.

The staff at the campground were helpful and friendly. I appreciated the shop and the gas station on site. We all enjoyed kayaking and using the paddle boats. The beach was ruined by goose poop. It wasn't possible to swim or play on the beach.

Clean campground and nice cabin. Every staff person was friendly and helpful. Very impressive. Lots to do on and near the grounds. Reasonable prices. Our family had a wonderful time and would consider staying here again.

Great staff. Working to keep place like new. Some lots have sewer connections that are hard to reach if your in the middle of the lot. They are too far away. over 15ft. most people do not carry that much hose. water an electric is fine. Voltage is good. Water is good. Easy access. Should ban ATV use in park. Staff if great, helpfull, and polite. Overall a very nice park.

Great newer campground with full hookups, clean facilities and lots of things to do for the kids and grandkids.

Good facilities and ammendities camp sites are a little close for my taste and very little shade available. Overall good experience. Could be very nice in the future

This is a pretty new KOA, I think as the grounds develop, it will be much better. The grass is not easy to walk over, as it is lumpy. Watch out, you could twist an ankle, fall. The lake is really nice with the path around it, but watch out for the goose droppings covering most of the path. The staff are very friendly. Just needs to be better developed. Especially the grass.

Very nice campground, some spots appear to be a bit difficult to sit around a fire since they are at a slant, but there were plenty flat site to choose from too! Was able to take our kayaks on the lake for a little float. Wasn't able to enjoy the beach since we went to the waterpark all day Saturday. A little more costly than the local state/county parks, but will still come back.

Great campground. It did seem strange that there was no dishwashing sink anywhere nearby (or it was not pointed out to us). Pretty inconvenient just to use the pump.

Enjoyed our stay. However, out of three cabins; one had a coffee pot; one had cups; one had no dishes nor sink. Cabins were clean.

The site is convenient to relatives but have some flaws especially the sewer connections which are too high and sometimes uphill. This makes for drainage problems.

very clean, friendly services, cabin was great we had 8 person which accommodated us with our four grandchildren perfectly. only downfall was that we had to pay to use the paddle boats. thought they should of been included with the rental of the cabin.

Very nice new park. Great wi-fi, better than most parks we have been in.

Very clean, comfy and cool! A small cabin that utilizes space wisely. Loved it's location right next to the pond. And, my grandson's loved the bunk beds.

Great place! I stayed right after they opened and the rain had killed all but a bit of the foliage. Now its all green and a plus are the sealcoat streets and pads. I will stay again.

Everything was great with one exception. The metal edging at #11 was coming up and my daughter cut her toe on it. Great cabins! Great price!
Jul 23, 2014
What an amazing little treasure! We had a blast! This place has everything!! Already planning to come back!!

Could be 5 star, but 2 bc of cleanliness. Amenities, lake and cabins are AWESOME (BUT unsanitary). Guests are required to clean. Staff does some. Yet, our cabin had gross hair, LOTS of dust/dirt everywhere, floors look clean but sticky/black, sinks w/gunk, etc. - NEED a good vacuum and cleaning solutions. Beware - fleece blankets not washed daily. Guests can pickup. Staff needs to SANITIZE/CLEAN!

Campsites were clean:) Beach was nice but had quite abit of goose droppings. Bathroom/showers were not kept clean during our stay and the 30 sec stream on the showers was inconvenient. Kids enjoyed the nice play set:)

Loved it!

I think this will be a great KOA in 5 years or so when the trees mature and the lawns/landscape improves. The tent sites are brutally dangerous with "washout" ruts and overal extremely dangerous surface. Definitely the potential to break an ankle. Especially at dark.

Great place and good people, but was very disappointed in the free wifi.
Jul 22, 2014
Great location. Many sites not level. "Beach" and swimming area has been ruined by the goose droppings.
Jul 22, 2014
They're off to a great start! I'd like to see the place in 10 yrs! Our dog lovedthe wide open spaces and bark park.

Staff was wonderful, especially Ben!! Cabins were pretty good. Site could use a little bit of clean up and more trees/vegetation but I understand it takes time to get things established.

We loved our stay at the Waterloo KOA! The staff was out of this world from the time we were discussing our needs over the phone when booking our trip 6 months ago all the way through to the checkout at the end of our fun filled weekend! We plan to make this a yearly event!

Very cute cabin and nice beach.
