Great place to stay, lots of things for families to do.
Jul 28, 2015

Jul 28, 2015
We had a great weekend! It is a beautiful park, very family friendly and in a good location. I will recommend this park and return again myself.
Jul 27, 2015
We really enjoyed our stay and plan to go again. The kids were always busy doing something. Loved it!
Jul 27, 2015
Excellent campsite with great amenities and the kids loved the water park.
Jul 27, 2015
The campground was nice. It will be really nice once there is more shade. It would have been nice if the campsites were a little farther apart. The WiFy wasn't very good. It was hard to stay connected.
Jul 27, 2015
Site was to small for our rv,we had 15' of sewer hose and it still didn't reach on the small lot
Jul 27, 2015
Very helpful staff

They need to replace the push button showers with regular ones. The flow is too short to even wet your hair if you are not bald.
Jul 27, 2015
I was satisfied for a one day stay.
Jul 27, 2015
Great location and great campground with lots for kids to do. Very clean and well maintained.
Jul 26, 2015
The campground was very nice with nice amenities.
Jul 26, 2015
This is a nice park, was disappointed in the sewer hook-up though. They were up-hill from the motorhome connection. Stayed 07/09/15 in a motorhome.
Jul 26, 2015
Well kept park, helpful & friendly staff. Lots to do on site, beach with volleyball, water toys, playground, a great dog pArk & a fantastic water park across the street, plus nearby restaurants, a mall, grocery stores & much more.

Bathrooms are quite a ways away from where our spot was. Plus you can't adjust the temperature of the shower. On hot humid days a warm shower is your only option. I would have loved a cold shower.
Jul 25, 2015
The trees are starting to grow and the grass is filling in since our visit two years ago. WiFi is poor and frequently stops entirely...plan on using your mobile broadband. Caution, your jacks may punch right through the tar/stones pad surface. That being said, its still a great RV park with lots of positives. We'll be back.
Jul 25, 2015
Very poor sewer location. Whoever designed the sewer system didn't know that water does not run uphill.
Jul 24, 2015
Very nice and clean. Nice restrooms and showers. Wish there was better signage on hwy 20 or 218.
Jul 24, 2015
Just an overnite stay, so not too much to say.......pull throughs were easy to use.
Jul 24, 2015
Very clean and the staff was very friendly!
Jul 24, 2015
i will reccomend
Jul 24, 2015
we checked in on July 21 around noon. Kudos to the young man who checked us in. He was very helpful and polite. he went out of his way to find us a site that would work for us.
Jul 23, 2015
beach sand was dirty. lot's of goose poop and some trash. Facilities otherwise were very nice. Could take time to line up the beach chairs before each day.
Jul 22, 2015
The grounds are terrific. Great beach!
Jul 22, 2015
This is a beautiful park, roomy sites. Just about anything you might want to do is on the property.
Jul 21, 2015
The staff was phenomenal. The sites were well kept and clean. The views were amazing. Overall awesome experience for the whole family.
Jul 21, 2015
No control on showers way to hot. Hot day even hotter in shower room. Wanted concrete pad like it showed online did not have a concrete pad it was gravel on top of oil.
Jul 21, 2015
The camp site was nice. The beach was great for the kids. Newer campground so not much shade until the trees grow more.
Jul 20, 2015
We have been here before and loved it and still do. But they must clean up the overgrowth of weeds in the lake. Fishing was not going to happen. Water park was great. We will be staying here again. Hopefully fishing.

This should be, unless it already is, KOA's model kampground!!!!! Finally someone, in the KOA system, who knows how to design and run a campground.
Jul 19, 2015
Nice newer park, plenty of room
Jul 19, 2015
Was very excellent
Jul 19, 2015
Wish the wifi would work better in the park. Only able to connect once an really slow.
Jul 18, 2015
Everything is very nice here--great facilities. It will be even better in a few years when the trees have grown.

Great place to stay.
Jul 16, 2015
More attention needs to be paid to the clean up of the goose poop ALL over the beach. There is NO SHADE anywhere at the beach, umbrellas would be a nice added feature.
Jul 16, 2015
lots of open space. The 'goose droppings' are a nuisance! It would be fun with kids with the amusement park nearby. The lake had lots of algae but really nice beaches.
Jul 15, 2015
Jul 15, 2015
This is a nice campground. It would be really nice if there was a pool. The lake is nice, but full of algae. We enjoyed the walking path around the lake, but you have to dodge the goose poop. A very nice place to stay. Employees are very friendly and helpful.
Jul 14, 2015
Very nice KOA some problems with leveling a motor home on some spots! Nice walking path and great for families!
Jul 14, 2015
The staff was excellent. The shower houses were clean and great. However, we felt the camp sites were very sloped and difficult to set up the picnic table and lawn chairs. The swimming beach was covered with animal feces, and the water was inudated with seaweed. We had virtually no shade even with our awning opened. Perhaps the direction of the sites should be different. We could barely connect ou

It was a very nice and quiet KOA. We had a great time. Wish the main office/gas station wasn't so far to walk from our campsite and it would be really cool if they rented golf karts.
Jul 14, 2015
It's a KOA!
Jul 13, 2015
We stayed here overnight on a recent trip to Mount Rushmore. The park is new and very nice! I would definitely recommend. Great location in the area and close to good place to eat.
