I was disappointed with my stay with 4 teenagers Before arriving I received a message from Koa that the water slide wouldn’t be available for my August 2 night stay also the cabin I rented seemed to have water damage from the smell and soft spots on the floor Also on the 2nd day the little cafe/ icecream shop was only open part time I feel I overpaid for amenities that weren’t available Not ha

We loved the wagon ride on Saturday. We wish the wagon ride was on Friday and Saturday

It was a very nice campground with lots of activities for my grandkids, staff was pleasant and helpful. We hope to come again next year.

Thank you for taking such good care of all of us Merritt's this past weekend! The accommodations, amenities, and everything else were fabulous! I will highly recommend your KOA to everyone!

Comfortable, accommodating, friendly

We have been coming to this KOA for 10 years. This time was a different experience. We were understanding of the water slide not open and no river tubing service due to the lack of employees. What was hard to deal with was the showers/bathrooms being extremely dirty. They have added a $20 “lock-in” fee to reserve the same spot for the following year (along with first night payment).

We enjoyed our stay but was dissapointed that the water slide was not open. It is one of the activities we all looked forward to.

Hayward KOA is my favorite place to stay. I was there twice this year, and I'm already booked for next year. Staff is so friendly there. Everything at the campgrounds are perfect.

Great time w/friends. Well maintained. The lower score reflects in that we asked for sites next to each other months prior and one person of our group even drove the 2 hours to confirm it. It didn't happen, not even an apology. I'll pay $ for quality, but this left a bad taste in our mouths. A/C in one of the cabins simply didn't keep up. It was a great trip, just could have been A+

Very dirty camp ground overall. Rented cabin and paid extra for my dog. Very dirty floor. Shower house should be closed or take my pet deposit to clean the dirt, hair and bugs out of showers. Dogs chained to trees, kids toys out in drive and clothing hung on fence to dry at front gate. Also small children left unattended in bathroom and shower area in pajamas. Left a day early. Not a KOA.

We've stayed at the Hayward KOA many years and this was the first time it's disappointed. Our cabin was filthy,nothing had been swept. Things fell under the beds and retrieving them brought back dirt and cobwebs.Kids pinata event was poorly organized.Unable to tube the river due to a lack of tubes and drivers. Overall disappointing, The special touches no longer exist. Sorry to see it go downhill.

This was our 3rd year at this KOA. We had some concerns-cabin was dirty, bathrooms were not cleaned often enough, and the showers were beyond gross. I only took 1 shower in 4 days because it disgusted me. Pool did not seem clean-water not clear at all. Lifeguards very unprofessional, not safe. Chatting with friends, no uniform, and doing things they told kids not to do-like going down headfirst.

We have been going to the Hayward KOA for many years and have enjoyed it very much but this year will be our last year. There were a few disappointments this year- needed a reservation tube, this would have been great to know at check-in, no DJ dance, not enough chairs in the pool area, office staff could be more friendly and informative.
Jul 31, 2023
Safe, clean. Once we were settled in there was no reason to leave. There were fun things to do all day long!

Friendly, clean, pretty and easy place. Firewood didn't burn well however.
Jul 27, 2023
Rented a deluxe cabin, very impressed! will rent again
Jul 25, 2023
we enjoyed the family-friendly atmosphere, and the beautiful Norway Pine plantation. We took part in many activities you offer. Only two complaints/comments: 1) too few bathrooms for the campground 2) the battery-powered blower used to clean the grounds in the morning is VERY LOUD and REALLY disturbs the grounds.
Jul 20, 2023
Enjoyed our time but were disappointed with these things: Shortened hours at the red pine. No more lounge chairs by pool. No floating down the river on the days we were there. Hard to get the firewood going, wasn’t dry enough. Miniature golf not the best…
Jul 20, 2023
Trees were beautiful and grounds well-kept, but bathrooms needed upkeep (peeling toilet seats), staff uninformed about cost of amenities, and there was no list of prices. We had to check in to cabin an hour late as it wasn't cleaned yet. When we checked in, tables and floors were still dirty. The only friendly staff was the guy delivering firewood. Everyone else seemed confused and overwhelmed.

My family(kids and grandkids) have been spending time each summer for the past 7 or 8 years. We have enjoyed it ever year. The grandkids love to go there each year and we are booked for next year.. Most of the kids have camp sites but we usually rent one or two cabins and here is where I have a negative comment. We are seeing that the cabins need some TLC. The outside chairs are unusable. $$
Jul 18, 2023
The kids love staying here. We participated in crafts, the wagon ride, water slide, pool, bounce pad, treasure hunt, smores and movies. They kids love playing in the park and riding their bikes around. The only thing I would change is having the movie in the field/ park area again. Not as many people can fit in the pavilion and the soda machine was bright and made it hard to see the screen.
Jul 15, 2023
Cabins and grounds were clean and well kept. The futon mattress was thin and uncomfortable but worked fine. The only other side note is the prices for the mining rocks were miss marked. Staff was friendly. We will be back next year!!
Jul 13, 2023
We really enjoy the KOA , but this stay was a little off. There were way too many stumps next to our lodge! Now that we got my email fixed I would surely hope I would hear of all the changes before I get there!
Jul 13, 2023
Couple of oddities. Windows in deluxe cabin would not stay up. Door to bathroom would not lock or even close all the way. Awkward!
Jul 11, 2023
Booking was easy. The camping and deluxe cabins were as described and had everything we needed. Check in was equally easy. Staff were all pleasant and helpful. Brian (manager) and all staff went above and beyond to keep everything in tip-top shape. I was especially impressed they had a dog play area and how well all the dogs in the campground were received and were well behaved!

We have been coming for many years. We have stayed in KL9 for the past 2 years. This year it was extremely dirty when we arrived. Also, the pull-out couch needs to be replaced it is virtually unusable to sleep on. There were only 2 trash bags in the entire cabin we had to ask for more twice. When you have 6 people staying in a cabin for 4-5 nights we need more trash bags, please.
Jul 10, 2023
Employees are awesome, lots to do but this year no children games which was sad. Movie night was so fun. We’ve been coming here for 13 years and it never disappoints
Jul 10, 2023
Great time for the kids and adults! Lots to do for everyone.

As always we had an amazing time. The only problem we had was we brought our new dog camping with us. She does bark a bit. One of the workers came and told us some people had complained about her barking. He was very nice, and didn´t say we had to leave or anything. But this caused me some anxiety knowing people were complaining, so we had to drive her 1.5 hours each way to my sister´s. :(
Jul 04, 2023
All was great. Cabins were clean as well as bathrooms. People were friendly. Thank you!
Jun 30, 2023
While the accommodations in our cabin were nice (clean, everything working, etc) when my group arrived for our stay a few employees made us feel unwelcomed. Simply being a group of young adults doesn’t mean we’ll be disrespectful or need to be reminded numerous times to “behave”.
Jun 29, 2023
Went on a Monday-Wednesday and it was pretty quiet so i enjoed that. Lots of fun activities for kids and staff was wonderful. Cabin was nice. Wished ice cream shop was open though or be able to purchase ice cream in main shop :) thanks for good time!
Jun 28, 2023
The cabin we rented was having trouble with the electrical breaker. They switched us with no hesitation and didn’t charge us the difference in cost. Wound up with a fabulous house/ cabin. Would definitely recommend staying at this campsite.
Jun 28, 2023
We enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly and the campground was quite during the week.
Jun 27, 2023
We stayed in the deluxe cabin sleeps 8.nice cabin but a little tight. The Roku TV with satellite did not work well as when we came back to the campground we couldn’t have a fire as it kept raining We did get to use the pool for a little bit which was nice. Very family oriented and activities to participate in.We’ll definitely be back and try our camper and cabin. Loved being in the pine tree
Jun 26, 2023
Was a little disappointed that the movie for kids is no longer happening. We didn’t really notice cleaning crews around like in past stays. The cabin we stayed in was shifting so it had large crack that bugs were getting into all night. Past stays I just felt that it was better taken care of and more geared to kids.
Jun 23, 2023
Really enjoyed the cabin and pool. Water slide was unfortunately broken but they did a good job of keeping us notified. Not much for activities during the week which was a little disappointing but as this was our first time, so we didn’t miss it. Would recommend.
Jun 23, 2023
Myself, my son and his friends had a great stay! All the staff were polite and cordial. The only downside I have is the small electrical fire on the 2nd to last day in my son and friends' room, but it was handled immediately. That is the only reason I am rating it 4/5.
Jun 21, 2023
Showers and bathroom facilities definitely not as clean as they have been in previous years. Staff driving around checking on sites were very friendly and personable.
Jun 20, 2023
Super disappointed that water slide was not yet open, tubing was not yet open, food/snack building only open Thur - Sun. Also, a/c in our deluxe cabin did not work.

Very nice campground, built for kids.

KOA Hayward was a great get away for my family. Family friendly and a lot of activities. The staff were helpful, nice, and well informed. There were clear posters for activities and the weekend food options at the cafe. Our kids enjoyed the slide, pool, playground, basketball hoop, and tether balls. We will hopefully be back in the future!
