I understand that the campground is new and will take some time to develop the landscape. We enjoyed the planned activities. Even though we had quite a bit of rain, it didn't affect the campsite we stayed at. Shower houses were nice and clean. The WiFi was erratic and not very useful. It was nice having disc golf and a volleyball net at the beach. Overall we had an enjoyable time.

This was a perfect location for spending a couple days in the Waterloo area. All of the people that we met that work there were very friendly. We brought our dog along so the walking trail around the lake was very convenient. Prior to leaving we filled up at the gas station that is located at this KOA, that was a nice surprise to see and very handy.

We find the location of the KOA very convenient to get on and off the highway. Also being close to the shopping center which is nice to pick up needed supplies. Each visit we see more improvements. Friendly staff.

We've stayed at a number of KOA's and this one went above and beyond our expectations. Though I missed the rustic style of the kamping kabin, I appreciated the bright and cheery paint and amenities such as a microwave, mini fridge, and restroom in our cabin. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The setting is beautiful. We will be back!

This was our first stay in any campground as new RVers. The gentleman who checked us in was so nice and helpful. The space and hookups were great. The woman who checked us out and filled our propane tank was also so friendly and helpful. What a great first experience!

We just had a quick overnight here while traveling. It was off season but all of the facilities that I used were clean and in good repair.
