Campground Reviews

Aug 27, 2013
Staff was super friendly/helpful, cabin was really nice. Having store there saved time. Only wish there were chairs to sit on (on our porch). Would stay here again!

Nice cabin, close to water park. Clean grounds, the children really enjoyed the lake.

Restrooms, pond, trail and store are great. Not having level ground for picnic table and sitting is disastrous. All of the washouts need to be filled in, we had several falls and turned ankles.

Arrived late just to stay for the night. The fellow at the desk was very cordial and let us choose our own site. Baths were immaculate, although shower water and temp were not adjustable. This is a beautiful new facility with a lovely location.

We and our Grandkids enjoyed our stay. Our stay was August 20th and out August 23,2013. The shower house and restrooms where very clean. The beach and play area were enjoyed by the kids.

We stayed in the deluxe cabin and had a great time....everything we needed was supplied. Plan on going back again next year!

Need better cable service
Aug 22, 2013
Though this is a new campground, it needs some tlc. The weeds in the fire pits and around the trees, the washouts at sites, never saw a staff member in 5 days. The hill sites need leveling. Hopefully as it grows it will get better and more care.

The patio site was great. We had campfires every night and rode our bikes around the lake in the evening. We used the cooker to grill burgers and played disk golf on the disk golf course. Next time we will rent boats. We hooked up the cable but had no time for watching TV. We got gas and milk at the store but didn't need the donuts or pizza by the slice: maybe next time.

Staff was great. Think about some garbage cans on the beach. In general, the sites were rather littered.

Great new KOA. Will only get better as the property matures. Could use some improvements on signage and lighting. Hard to navigate at night because of the lack of lighting and signage.

We loved this cabin and while the campground is brand new, they are working hard to put together a great spot. Nice office bldg, friendly staff, nice grounds.

I especially liked having the gas station on site.

The only bad thing is the position of the sewer dump pipe on the site. It should be closer to the other utilities. My sewer hose could not reach it.

So very impressed! We had our family reunion there last weekend and we were so pleased. You've created a campground that has everything! Nicely done!

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.
Aug 18, 2013
Very nice and new. Friendly and helpful.
Aug 18, 2013
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.
Aug 16, 2013
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

Not sure if we will be back this way, bit if we are we will stay here again! Large campsites, great swimming lake and beach for the kids. Fun Waterpark down the road. We had a great time!

Thanks

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.

Great staff that were very helpful in planning and checking in and out. Good location. Clean and well maintained. Will be back.

Kids loved the beach and playground. Very clean and staff was friendly. Just thought it was a little expensive at $45 a night.
Aug 12, 2013
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.
Aug 10, 2013
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.

Great time. Kids LOved the place. We'll be back

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.
