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.

Very nice campground. This ia a large campground that is close to a waterpark and also close to conveniences. The employees are very friendly. Our dogs love the K-9 playground.

All was good other than they switched our reservations and didn't know another camper was in our spot when we got there.

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!

We had 6 people and fix comfortably in the 8 person cabin. Single bed mattresses were a bit uncomfortable, but overall great experience!!

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!

Simply wonderful! We look forward to returning to this location.

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.

I loved that there was breathing space between sites, that the store was open until 10 pm (because we ran out of propane at 9 pm), and the wifi worked!!

Nice park with walking path around one lake. I believe a casino is close to resort, but we didn't visit casino. KOA staff at office when we arrived.

This is not your average KOA. This is beautifully laid out and has to be relatively new. Lake, beach, long pull throughs, and great donuts in the main office, store. You will like it. diesel station in front also. Gary

Your sewer connections are too high on the site. Two times I've stayed and both sites the connections were too high to normal flow. I had to keep backing up nearly out of the site to get my RV connection higher than the connection. Bad stuff.

People were great and helpful, nicest KOA we have ever stayed at. Outstanding off-season prices.
Oct 18, 2015
Outstanding. Very clean. Staff were fun and professional. Nicest one we have ever stayed in. We will be back.

The staff is great, but the shower houses are not cleaned like they state they are. The park is quite except when the casino has concerts. Then there is no getting away from the noise. This was a complaint by many campers.
