Campground Reviews

The speed limit is 5 miles an hour, we had to watch kids flying past our camper and the cars zooming by. I one person kept going by doing at least 55 mph. We were surprised no one got hit and if they did it would not have been pretty. The lake was green slime how could one swim in there. Fix these and maybe we could or would go back. Family park with speeders this park IS NOT SAFE FOR KIDS!!!

Sites are nice. No shade and the speed of traffic was WAY to fast. Speed limit was 10 and most cars doubled if not tripled that. Hard to let kids be kids if you have to worry about the cars. PLEASE consider speed bumps throughout your park. FYI...watch your children on bikes and out playing.

We had an amazing stay. The location is great as we stayed to be close to Lost Island Water Park.

I think this campground needs to put a closing time on the park itself. It was almost 11:30pm/12am and a large diesel pickup came right by our tent. If there was a gate and closing time that wouldn't have happened. Overall the facilities we clean and nice. We came for the waterpark next door and had a great time. The $$ off was great! Thanks Kelly

Friendly greeting and wonderful help. Clean shower house which is very important to us. Nothing worse than a great campground with terrible facilities!

Was very clean campground and gas station on site was very convenient. Fishing in the lake was also very enjoyable as I had a 5&6 yr old that seemed to catch a fish almost every cast. Will definitely return.

need to keep your tree spikes out of the travel area of the campers. other than that, I liked the girl named Brooklyn very uncommon name. best KOA for service, with fuel and a well kept grocery area.

I gave you a three star, because the campground is great. What is missing is play area's for kids. The one play area you do have is so small. Not to mention that for the size of your resort, there should be at least three playgrounds. A swimming pool would have me back there every summer. Even though the Lost Island is right there, you still need a swimming pool. Yogi Bear in Fremont In. check

Everything was great. Campground was good. We weren't far from the bathroom. Was quiet and enjoyable. Looking forward to coming back a lot in the future.

It rained most of the weekend, but we still had fun
Jun 23, 2015
Didn't stay long. Just overnight and bad weather came in that morning.

My family and I enjoyed staying in the cabin there. The only thing I would recommend is of guests are expected to clean before leaving, cleaning supplies should be provided such as disinfectant spray and paper towels at the minimum. There was a broom to sweep.

It's very nice but experienced a few problems when we arrived didn't know where our tent sight was a lot of noise late at night and very restless stay but nice place

Best KOA I have stayed in. Beautiful setting w/awesome check in station - hot food, cold drinks. A little pricey, but worth it.

Since the renovation this park is phenominal. The customer service as well as the location in relationship to cedar falls/waterloo was even better.definitely will return.

Jun 14, 2015
Facilities were very clean, staff was nice and helpful.

We are full time RV'ers. This is the nicest and best staffed RV park we have ever stayed at. This is our 2nd time here and we will be back. Whatever your doing, don't change because it's great.

The cabin we stayed in was very nice.
Jun 12, 2015
A lot of room between sites. Like the lake and is very close to restaurants and other amenities. Great place to stay.
Jun 12, 2015
A lovely place, pet friendly and super helpful manager.

A very nice RV Park close to everything you need in Waterloo/Cedar Falls.
Jun 09, 2015
Nice campground, but finding our site was not easy and we helped others, especially those coming at dark or near dark. We have been KOA members for years and almost all campgrounds have golf carts that direct you to your site. We heard you were short handed so maybe that's the reason.
Jun 08, 2015
More a resort than a campground. The directions in the KOA catalog are missing a critical point - the exit number 71A getting off the highway to the resort
