Great staff. Working to keep place like new. Some lots have sewer connections that are hard to reach if your in the middle of the lot. They are too far away. over 15ft. most people do not carry that much hose. water an electric is fine. Voltage is good. Water is good. Easy access. Should ban ATV use in park. Staff if great, helpfull, and polite. Overall a very nice park.

Great newer campground with full hookups, clean facilities and lots of things to do for the kids and grandkids.

This is a pretty new KOA, I think as the grounds develop, it will be much better. The grass is not easy to walk over, as it is lumpy. Watch out, you could twist an ankle, fall. The lake is really nice with the path around it, but watch out for the goose droppings covering most of the path. The staff are very friendly. Just needs to be better developed. Especially the grass.

Very nice campground, some spots appear to be a bit difficult to sit around a fire since they are at a slant, but there were plenty flat site to choose from too! Was able to take our kayaks on the lake for a little float. Wasn't able to enjoy the beach since we went to the waterpark all day Saturday. A little more costly than the local state/county parks, but will still come back.

The site is convenient to relatives but have some flaws especially the sewer connections which are too high and sometimes uphill. This makes for drainage problems.

Great place! I stayed right after they opened and the rain had killed all but a bit of the foliage. Now its all green and a plus are the sealcoat streets and pads. I will stay again.

Campsites were clean:) Beach was nice but had quite abit of goose droppings. Bathroom/showers were not kept clean during our stay and the 30 sec stream on the showers was inconvenient. Kids enjoyed the nice play set:)

Great place and good people, but was very disappointed in the free wifi.

Great location. Many sites not level. "Beach" and swimming area has been ruined by the goose droppings.

They're off to a great start! I'd like to see the place in 10 yrs! Our dog lovedthe wide open spaces and bark park.

We loved our stay at the Waterloo KOA! The staff was out of this world from the time we were discussing our needs over the phone when booking our trip 6 months ago all the way through to the checkout at the end of our fun filled weekend! We plan to make this a yearly event!

Our stay was short only two nights. The waterpark had record attendance for the year and the longest wait in line was only fifteen minutes. We as a group

Campground was very clean and facilities were very nice. I think it would be a little more convenient if check out time could be pushed forward to 1 or 2 pm vs noon, so you don't feel so rushed in the morning

Clean, lots to do, close to waterpark. Will be even better once trees mature. Love the pull-thru sites...so convenient!

Clean campground very close to fun water park. Trees are very young which provide zero shade. It was also fairly windy. It would be nice to see more kids activities that KOAs are known for. We liked the swimming beach.
Jul 16, 2014
The beach was fantastic, the restrooms very clean, the park was beautiful. We fed ducks & geese, rented kayaks,swam & had a bonfire. It was the perfect get-away. Discount tickets to Lost Island Waterpark were an added bonus!

Seemed like a very poorly designed site, utilities spaced to make it impossible to leave a trailer on rv. Lake and beach area was FILTHY w/goose dung and asst. garbage incl. glass.Bath houses/bathrooms filthy. Never saw an employee or host out visiting or helping campers. Tried to buy longer cable for tv,when not long enough was refused return.Well us like that cable will refuse to return.

Although this campground is only a year old, it appears they have not did any upkeep since. Facilities are nice, but are new. Sites are mostly weeds, and not mowed. I am not sure they own a weed trimmer because around posts, trees, along landscaping, etc... it appears they have not been trimmed for a month. Staff was friendly. Location is good. Need to keep better appearance.

This was our 2nd stay. Clean camp sites and friendly staff in store.

Enjoyed fishing, paddleboats, quiet, clean showerhouse, nice place to stay.

The gas station was a welcome surprise. Overall the place was great. Only downside was the overflowing dumpsters...not pleasant to drive or walk by. Enjoyed the separation between sites. I will return.
