This was the absolute best stay we have ever had! The cabin was very clean and had a feel of home. The staff was extremely accommodating and helpful. We loved staying at KOA!!

Had a great time and everything was perfect! We'll be back for sure!

Awesome site! Wish the cabin layout hadn't given the perception of a stove top in the cabin but no big deal.

Very nice facility. Our family of four stayed in a cabin which was very nice. The staff was very friendly and accommodated my request to defrost the cabin refrigerator... the function was much improved from last time! I was disappointed with the amount of trash spread around the place and filled a grocery sack in a one walk from the cabin to the pond/ beach area.

great koa but...beach was horrible. the beach chairs were disorganized with most in the lake and there was goose poop all over the sand. they really need someone to organize the beach chairs and clean up after the geese so people aren't constantly steeping on poop.

It was a great Campground with helpful friendly staff! Need to make sure the cleaning staff is changing the sheets on the beds and bunk beds in the Cabins though!

The Kampground itself was fantastic. Lots to do and quiet. The pond was a bit yucky to swim in. However, we had a blast playing sand volleyball. The cabin we rented was very nice but not clean at all. I did let the lady know at checkout and she was very apologetic. I will stay again though. Just will bring my own cleaning supplies.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We rented a cabin and found it to be a great option. A nice and relaxing getaway.

We had a great time visiting Lost Island Waterpark and then staying in the deluxe cabin. The kids loved the beach. The only downside to the beach is all the goose poop, especially on the island. We are definitely up for making this an annual stay.

We had so much fun. Right on the little beach. Cabins were really nice! It is a new campground so the trees are small, once they grow it will be even nicer. We plan on returning next year.

It was a very nice stay. I was hoping for a little bit bigger cabin for the five of us, but for the amount of time we were in there, it was nice.

everything was wonderful except the pullout bed, it was unfit for most anyone. Everything else was perfect!

Lots of fun and lots to do! We would definitely go back! The waterpark nearby is awesome as well!

Great stay and nice campground. Kids loved swimming in the lake!
Jun 23, 2015
My family and I enjoyed staying in the cabin there. The only thing I would recommend is of guests are expected to clean before leaving, cleaning supplies should be provided such as disinfectant spray and paper towels at the minimum. There was a broom to sweep.

The cabin we stayed in was very nice.

Had a great time loved the cabins. Better pullout beds and retractable awnings on cabins would be awesome
May 25, 2015
The campground was awesome. Very clean and friendly. The only reason we did not rate it 5 stars is the distance you have to walk to get to a shower. Had Sr Citizens with us and unlike every other KOA that we stayed at, this one's shower was a long walk that at night was not lighted at all????
May 17, 2015
Everything was awesome. The people who took care of my transactions were great. This is a great place!
May 15, 2015
We had a wonderful time my grand kids went fishing for the first time.The cabin that I stayed in did not have a coffee maker in it, Carl went and got a new one, not that is service,thanks can't wait for our next camping adventure in July.☺
May 14, 2015

May 12, 2015
It was wonderful. We have been before and we will retune again. It is clean and quite. We will be back because both of our boys are attending UNI. Better then a hotel in my opinion. Thank you
