Always enjoy this location and all the amenities available. Great sightseeing and privacy. love the fact that there are still lots of tent sites here and not all are RV catered. Sad to see the decrease in many of the KOAs to tenting.

The owner was very unfriendly. The location and grounds where just plain. No landscaping flowers etc., plenty of road noise from the 4 lane highway. Paid for a tent site with electric it only had a 30 amp plug no 110 outlet. My tent doesn't have a 30 amp rv plug???? would not stay here again


We have adapters they you can use. You would not have had enough for 3 tents with 5 people anyway. Next time you should ask before you leave. FYI we do not allow more than one tent per site next time we will charge you or make you leave.

This KOA is directly off the highway.It is also by an airport. We heard sirens all night long.Our campsite was so tiny.Worst camping experience ever.We will never return to this location.Very disappointed.


Your site was small because you had 7 people in a tent site with 3 small tents be glad we did not make you get two sites. Am sure the rain we had for 4 days did not help your experience.

Although arriving very late, we had clear directions waiting for us and we had the opportunity to say hello to our hosts as we departed in the morning.

I am 67 years old and got evicted for sitting up my tent in the shade after the office told me I could I had been kayaking for 3 days in the sun and our site was in the sun so I wanted shade. The Owner told me I did not check in at the office before I moved my tent. That was a lie. When I questioned her she evicted my group and told us we had 10 minutes before police would come. Never stay here.


That is not the true story for one you moved to a rv site which we do not allow tents in and second I said you would need to come to the office to pay for a different site because that is not what you paid for and you told me you would not pay that is the reason you where ask to leave. We do not allow you to just go pick a site and set up.

Pleas note that the rustic tent sites are NOT near the bathroom as the website states. First KOA that the wifi didn't keep dropping which was nice and the campground was nice.

One of the showers in the men's room did not work properly. Grounds and playground were okay, but nothing to brag about. Nice overnight stop though.


Usually helps to let someone know the shower is not working when you are here not after leaving. We can take care of issues when we are notified of the issue.

Everything was great.

The campground was nice. I wouldn't call it scenic, but it was well kept. The staff was super friendly, and the facilities were very clean and welcoming. The one tough part was the noise. It is right along a busy highway and right next to the airport. But overall, well worth the price.

It was very clean and Terry and Wanda couldn't have been more helpful or nice. It did seem to be a bit dated. We had a tent site and a RV site to accommodate our party of 8. Our one daughter drove separately and was charged $1.00 for wifi access. We were told at check in that we could go back and get extra passwords as needed. To get them it was an additional two dollars. Hidden fees!!

We were too close to our neighbors. There were plenty of available plots and we were all very close. It would have been a much more enjoyable had we not been so crowed. All in all, it was a great weekend.

Was super impressed with the staff. They were helpful when I was asking questions about nearby activities, the facilities were clean, and they worked really hard in hot sticky weather to deal with all the trees that blew down in the storm!

We stayed at a tent site and it had a lot of ant piles. The pancake breakfast should run from 8-10 on weekends. The shower stalls especially the ceilings need updating as well as better ventilation. Staff is very friendly restrooms were clean; overall a good place to stay.

The campground area was huge as well as our campsite. Plenty of activities for our two kids and the staff quiet friendly and accommodating to our needs. A great stay and close location to Paul Bunyan and Babe, as well as Lake Itasca. Lots of fun.

We took 2 tents sites next to each other. The staffs were friendly. The camp site was clean. Its pretty close to a highway which may be bit of drawback.
