Cabin Reviews

Jul 22, 2014
I think this will be a great KOA in 5 years or so when the trees mature and the lawns/landscape improves. The tent sites are brutally dangerous with "washout" ruts and overal extremely dangerous surface. Definitely the potential to break an ankle. Especially at dark.

Staff was wonderful, especially Ben!! Cabins were pretty good. Site could use a little bit of clean up and more trees/vegetation but I understand it takes time to get things established.

Very cute cabin and nice beach.

The 8 person cabin was perfect for my family of 5 with three small children! All the kids had a room to stay and the loft worked fine for my husband and me to sleep after enjoying the fire after the kids bed time. The tables both inside and out for meals was a huge bonus! Wish all campgrounds had such a great setup! The beach and playground were amazing for us as well.

Compared to our stay years ago this was the best ever. The grandkids had fun fishing right out the door. Will do it again real soon.

Staff was great and the cabin was in good shape. Lots to do in the area and the kids were quite excited to try everything.

We stayed in a 8 person cabin. The cabin was clean and very nice. The 5 kids loved swimming and playing in the park. Found it very helpful to have laundry facilities open 24 hours. Quiet, peaceful, very helpful staff. We didn't want to come home!

It was amazing....was with grandkids and the playground was just incredible. Clean managed safe good location. I wasn't aware of the water parks hours however...I'm sure posted on site but must have overlooked so only suggestion I have is to make it bigger brighter and more noticable. Personally I seen it more of a blessing then disappointment as it gave me more quality time with my group. ;)

We had fun at your koa. the cabin that we stayed in (18) needs some major cleaning. I spilled some water on the floor so when I wiped it up with the white towel the towel had black marks on it. Another thing that needs some cleaning are the blinds. The inside of the frig was dirty too...

The kabins were nice but the 8 person unit was short on some kitchen gear which we thought should be automatic. There were only a few spoons and no knives or forks. Those who slept on the bunk-type beds would have liked to have top sheets. One small bottle of washing soap is not adequate for 2 people for one night.

Our family had a wonderful weekend!! The staff was super friendly and accommodating with lots of free activities. We also enjoyed the amenities of fishing, kayaking, paddle boating, and swimming!! We will definetly be back!!!

We were very happy with the property. Great amenities. Friends visited us and want to rent a place now as well. We would like to stay again but would request large garbage cans next to cabins, more then a bathroom sink, and the bugs were SOOOO bad at dusk, not sure what could be done about that?

We had a great time. My son caught 20 bluegills in 2 hours. For an 8 year old, that was an experience. Used the kayaks. We were surprised to learn the cabins had linens, microwave, fridge, bathroom. You can tell how much thought was put into designing those cabins. Everything had it's place.

The Manager and staff at the Waterloo KOA are all friendly and courtious. This time we stayed in the cabins. They were clean and bright and at this time of year(winter) warm and comfy.

We only live 60 miles away from this campground and did not know anything about it until our son-in-law found it and arranged for us to all meet there for the weekend. Very friendly and helpful staff and very nice cabins. We will absolutly be making it back in the future.

Loved it! Would like to have coffee pot maybe?

Very nice cabin for my stay but had a power failure while cooking my pizza in the microwave one nite. Unfortunately, the temperatures ans humidity kept me from enjoying the lake amenties. I suggest more signs be placed at destination landmarks to assist we travellers in finding the KOA.

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!

Great location! Golf, waterpark, shopping & casino. Park staff out standing. Great family reunion.

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