We had a great four day getaway. Very easy in and out and hookups were very accessable. It was a great central location to reach all our favorite spots.

Park and facilities are clean and well maintained. Sites are comfortably spaced. Lots of trees for that up north feeling. Big rig friendly, We travel in a class A motor home.

We had an extended stay of 8 weeks. Everything and everyone was great. Facilities are clean and grounds are rustic. I have no complaints about this place.

This KOA site is the nicest that I have been to. Owners are very nice and are willing to help with any issues.

We enjoy the beautiful campground, just don't understand the "one car per site" rule. For this reason we are looking for a new campground next year. Also the dirt roads need to be graded really bad. No hot water in the ladies room. I let it run forever before I just washed my hands with ice cold water.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am sorry you no longer wish to camp here for those reasons. We have always had the one car per site policy. We have had past experience that forced us to do this. I did not have anyone say anything about no hot water. I wish you would have told us while you were here so we could have addressed it. And yes the roads were rough due to all of the rain we have had in the past couple weeks.

our stay was great. but we do have a physically impaired adult dauther that we were going to bring but at the last minute she did not want to go. it was a good thing as your restrooms is not big enough for a person that can not stand or walk. you need to be able to bring the chair right into the stall next to the toilet for transferring. thank you for you concern.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It was my understanding that you knew about the handicapped issue when you visited our park before you made your reservation. We hope you enjoyed your stay.

The private road to the K away was horrid. I would’ve taken much effort to have scraped it nowAnd then.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you had a problem with the road. Actually we grade it as much as is possible. Unfortunately it has rained everyday in the last week and a half so we have not been able to keep the road smooth at all. Safe travels!

It was an overnight stay. We loved the staff and the camp is beautiful. Facilities are spotless.
Oct 04, 2018
We arrived after closing time, but the owners waited for our arrival on a chilly, rainy late September evening and made sure we were taken to our site. The campsite was very nice and we would love to return for another visit.
Oct 04, 2018
The RV sites were all nicely worded and private with lots of trees. The utilities all worked very well and the Wi-Fi was one of the best we have experienced at any Campground. The employees were extremely friendly and very helpful. I would look forward to staying at this Campground again.

One of the nicer Koas in all respects.
Oct 03, 2018
We had a wonderful stay at the Gaylord KOA. Dave and Georganne have a beautiful park. Oh, and every campground needs a BOB!!!

My sister in law drove down from Calumet for our family camping weekend. She had to pay an additional $5 per day to park her vehicle in the guest parking, (with bad knees). We have stayed at many campgrounds around Michigan, and this is the only place I have found that doesn't allow 2 vehicles per campsite. Not small campsites either. Seemed to be money friendly, not guest friendly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry you feel that way about our park. We have never allowed more than one vehicle at the site and that is stated in our campground notes online and on the confirmation you received when your reservation was made. We hope you have safe and happy travels in the future!

Owners were wonderful and accommodating, we had to come in past dark because of our work schedules and they waited up for us to show us to our site. Camp ground was clean and was a nice fall getaway. We can't wait to come back next year to golf the courses within close proximity to the campground! Thank you!!!

This is an annual trip for us. Lots to do in the area, starting with the elk in Pigeon River State Forest. The Gaylord KOA is clean, quiet, relaxing, friendly. We look forward to our trip again next year!

Male owner was very helpful during our late arrival, very accommodating, and helped us get situated!! Female owner who I spoke with over the phone and checked out with in the morning was fine, I wouldn’t say she was overly happy or friendly, she could have smiled at least but she was fine.

Great place to stay and friendly people and hosts. Nice location on the outskirts of Gaylord. I would definitely stay here again!

Nice campground and pleasant staff. Only thing is that I wish the little kid's playground was closer to the campsites. We have been there twice and plan on going back next year!
Sep 25, 2018

Great as usual.

Best KOA ever, even if the campground host and hostess were retired Navy, NOT Army (like me). Super friendly, helpful, and just plain fun people. They have a great set up there with tons of activities for people and a really great dog park set up. Hopefully I'll be back there next year. Thanks, Cindy Lee from Tennessee
