What a nice place. You deserve a President Award. You did a great job

Being a very new park, the grounds were very sparse as far as grass, trees, flowers etc. the staff was great and very accommodating. The shuttle to the waterpark was very good and a saving grace. This park will be great in about 5 years.

New Park just needs more time to mature Trees and grass. Had good time on the Beach and fishing with my son.

As always, the entire staff went above and beyond to make our stay perfect. So much care goes into the grounds, facilities and comfort of all Kampers.

It was a very nice site. Just need more signs on how to get to the KOA. Also didn't find any recycle containers.

Omg!!! We loved this place so much, the kids had a blast at the cabin and at the waterpark. Everything was very accommodating, especially the store, very convenient. Thanks for all of it

Staff was very friendly and helpful, however, the park is so new, not any grass to walk our dog. Mostly mud, with some weeds. It rained hard, so it was very messy.

Kids loved the beach and playground. Very clean and staff was friendly. Just thought it was a little expensive at $45 a night.

We loved the cabin and the lake. We recommend that you get a large magnet to sweep the area for screws, sparkler rods etc.

Great cabin. Perfect location near the Lost Island waterpark. Sound of highway 20 is distinct, but not a deal-breaker for a fun stay in a very clean campground.

Nice, cute place. Clean and very attractive. One thing you need is some dog poop bag stations, especially around the lake.

This campground was almost deserted when we stayed; did not like the feeling. This is a new park and still has a ways to go to feel like a KOA. It is very large, not well lit at night and in the open. The store was not well stocked...more like a convenience store than a camp store. Staying in a cabin would be a much better choice; close to the large lake and beach.

We enjoyed ourselves at this Kampground. The kitchen unit was barebones. No coffeepot. There were only plastic spoons and one metal one when we arrived. No serving bowls or utensils. I have no problem bringing my own if I am told there is little provided. They advertise Wifi, but it is weak. The mattresses were very comfortable. The beach was well groomed with a nice trail.

All the guys were extremely nice and helpful!Only one girl seemed to work there and she could probably do a bit better on her customer service. The park was amazing! loved the cabin and how clean it was. I would recommend a filter some how in the lake to prevent high bacteria levels.Five of the kids with us became very ill after swimming in the lake.Just wondering if the bacteria levels get checke

New, Clean, Great Staff. Large sites.Voltage very good. Odd sewer placement on sites many will need sewer hose extension to reach pipe. fuel and lpg on site. This location is one of the best koa camps in the country. Bath houses are the best we have seen all summer. The staff is great. Access is not the best from interstate 218 if you have a large fifth wheel but is workable.

Again - an awesome time - Mr. Ben S. knew us when we walked in the door - great time at Irishfest in downtown Waterloo. Oh, by the way Ben, we did go to the Isle for a short time and I won a little $$$$ - we will be back!!!

Great store with good selection. Decent sites. Clean bathrooms. Nice amenities. A bit on the "open" side... wish the sites were a bit more private.

We enjoyed our stay at the Waterloo KOA. The park is brand new and is still in development. With that in mind, there is not much shade yet as the trees are still young. The playground, shelter house, and other accommodations were nice and well planned out. The staff was very friendly and approachable. Part of our group stayed in the 4 person cabins which were very nice. We used our camper.

Loved the cabins. Very friendly & helpful staff. Clean campground.

When you have shade it will be super. We also liked the fact my family members could visit us and enjoy the visit with no extra charges. If this remains the same, we will be back many more times

This campground has great potential. We understand this is it's first year open, so we will cut it some slack for this. The camp spaces are spacious. The bathrooms are very clean. We loved how close it was to town, the waterpark,and the casino. The only bad part was the construction machinery that started at 7-7:30 am each morning. We'll be back after it is construction is complete.
