Campground Reviews

This brand new KOA is a mud hole . The roads were muddy, water didn't work, so we didn't stay. Management need a lot of help to get it improved to where it is ready for campers.

Cabin was great. Road was terrible. Soft and muddy- almost got stuck.

Note we were here right after foot of new snow during the first of March. The staff was very friendly and it looks like it might be a nice place, but could not tell because of the snow. There were no restroom other than the store which closed at 10.

The staff is friendly and very responsive to all requests! Cabins are clean & mostly comfortable. The beds are a little uncomfortable especially when staying multiple nights, but tolerable.

Wonderful site with a lake and free coffee mugs with free refills in the morning. The nicest and most helpful guys who just opened this brand new KOA! We can't wait to return!

Still under construction so a bit difficult to rate.

even though your park was new and the facilities were clean, the showers were extremely unfriendly - short water times and limited spray area. The roads were muddy, too.

This KOA would have and will rate higher in the future as services develop and the landscaping thrive. All of the service's in place during our stay were as they should be as this is a new facility.

Maybe this campground will be better when completed. Should not advertise until it is closer to being done. The personnel that worked there were very polite and helped as much as they could.

This is a great new KOA in the making. All pull through spots. When the vegetation grows in it will be beautiful. It did appear like many of the hillside sites will be somewhat unlevel side to side.
Sep 15, 2012
Muddy grounds and parking spots not level.
Sep 14, 2012
Everything will be nice I'm sure when it is completed. The only thing there were no garbage bins around. Thank you

Check in was a mess because they had never checked anyone in before. We didn't get our site #, check out time or any other information about the camp, so I had to call the office.
Sep 02, 2012
Still under construction. No pool or other amenities. Very pricey for basic full hookups.
Aug 28, 2012
They are still working the kinks out so I understand that this will hopefully improve. The sites were not leveled. The front desk people were not trained on how to check someone in. The showers were on a timer and only ran for about 5 seconds. Once the grass grows in, it does look like it will be a good rv park.

mirowave in the Kabin a good idea but a bench top out side where you can cook would be better
Aug 24, 2012
This place is under development! And what a place. We will come next year to see the finished result

Still under construction but had a great time.

At this under construction park, manager & staff went out of their way to make us feel at home.

Campground not finished. Mud and dirt everywhere. Had to push button in shower to get water on (too hot) and water shut off after 4 seconds. Impossible to take a shower having to use one had to keep pushing the water button on. Sites not level.
Aug 16, 2012
This campground is under construction and I believe it will be a 5 star when finished. Ben was very friendly and a pleasure to talk to.
Aug 14, 2012
Once this campground gets up and fully running it will be great. At the moment the showers were roomy but the water so hot we could not shower properly and the water only stayed on for a very short time.
Aug 13, 2012
Had a great time! The cabin was awesome - cannot wait until everything is open.
Aug 13, 2012
Showers were awful. Had to press button for 10 seconds of very hot water.
Aug 12, 2012
Peaceful stay.. would love to come back again. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly.
Jul 30, 2012
For a brand new KOA, all the services worked, the staff is freindly and helpful. I would like to go back when the site is complete and mature.
Jul 24, 2012
We were the first to camp there. It will be very nice when completed. It should be the model for new koa's .
