Tent Reviews

The staff was very nice and we had the tent area all to ourselves. The playground was in ok condition. The slide had a huge crack at the bottom. The kids were disappointed that they couldn't play on the bounce pillow, our firewood was rotted and would not catch despite 2 hours of constant tending, and only one of the showers worked properly. We probably wouldn't consider staying again.

Showers not good, need a plumber. Right next to highway and very noisy. But the chickens were entertaining. Good if you can't get into mamouth caves campground which is why we were there

We loved our deluxe cabin and thought it was a good value for the price. The cabin was very clean. We also liked all the activities for the children and pets. The park was very clean, and had nice playground equipment. Our children have used the big jump pillow before and really enjoyed the fun they had on this. The pet park was a nice unexpected addition for both of our dogs.

The grounds were well kept and the restrooms were somewhat clean but the interstate noise just ruins the entire stay. I mean, it was like we were laying on the side of the road as the cars and semis flew by. Terrible sleep each night due to this and you couldnât even enjoy the night crickets or sounds because of the interstate. Our family had to yell to have conversations around the fire.

I would never stay here again or tell friends and family to stay here. There is only one bathhouse and it is to far away to walk to. Plus this KAO is beside a working farm. I was woken up every morning by a Rooster twice when it was beside or tent. The people were nice who run the KOA . Just not a good place to try to sleep.

This was the second time staying at this KOA and it was great. This was our first camping trip with our dog and he had fun at the dog park. And running on the big lawn. Very friendly staff. Very clean camp ground. We will be back.

Likes. Fish pond farm setting and playground jumping pillow were all fun. Dislikes. Bathroom location and cleanliness. Seems like they need more staff. Sites weren't flat. Store was small. No dishwashing station. Pool seemed overused and dirty. Just seemed you guys weren't ready for all the eclipse traffic and having a full campground.

Easy to find and pretty clean but the front desk employees were not as helpful as they could have been. I often felt like they didn't want to exert themselves. My dad went up to buy ice and was told they didn't sell ice, despite the fact that there was a cooler filled with bags of ice in the store. I also didn't like hearing a staff member complaining about visitors loudly in the front office.

Bathrooms were constantly out of toilet paper and soap, and we was there for only one night. There was a light by our campsite that emitted a harsh, stadium-like light and it kept turning on and off. It was such a nuisance, especially when you think it's finally turned off once and for all, and then suddenly the white light just blares through your tent. Other than that, KOA staff were friendly.

Please refer to comments on our stay of 8/19-20, 2017.

Beautiful location.we appreciated that the campgrounds are wooded and located on a hill. Unfortunately, 24-hour traffic on I-65 is quite annoying. Other problems: Spotlight mounted on telephone pole at entrance to the tent area goes on and off repeatedly most of the night. This is very irritating! Is the light really necessary? Also, men's bathroom needs to be cleaned more frequently.

Place needs updated, was there 10 years ago and bathrooms/ showers are still small and only one set for entire campground. Trash along the one edge of woods, kids slide was cracked and looks like it has been for awhile.

The staff were friendly and everything was clean but I wish in the future they would notify people that there would not be fire pits available or that they would still have to be camping next to the highway, so maybe they can reschedule where they would like to stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am sorry for your unpleasant stay. You should have been told upon booking that no fire was allowed at this site due to we opened this up to accommodate your stay. Have a Bless Day.

Only issue was no adapter for electrical power at the tent site. I had to purchase one at the store, luckily I arrived while the store was still open. Returned it the next morning and the ladies said one should have been provided. Maybe permanently attach them to the site?
Aug 07, 2017
The KOA was very clean and up to date! The kids loved the inflatable and the playground! Very well kept and clean!

The "deluxe" tent site has nothing deluxe about it. There is electric hookup that you can't even use because it's for RVs only and the ground is very uneven for tent placement. Only two toilets in women's restroom had to wait in line to use the bathroom multiple times. No grill grates over the fire pit so don't expect to cook food over the fire.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are truly sorry you had a bad experience with us. However we do provide the adapter for these sites. They are in the process of redoing these sites. Sorry for the inconvenience. God Bless.

Right along I-65 very noisy sites are very close together
Aug 03, 2017
Left a day early from the campground. The showers/restroom need updated, there is no water pressure or temp control. Very close to highway and a truck stop so if in a tent, bring earplugs!
Aug 01, 2017
The Tent sites leave a lot to be desired. The electric site we booked was very uneven and small. The rustic were better but still rough. The kids area, pool, bathrooms and staff were great. The sites layout needs some work.
Aug 01, 2017
The playground and jump pillow and fishing pond were great. Excellent additions.lady on the morning we were leaving was very kind. The reason for lower ratings than the others we stayed at for the week was due to the tent sites basically being on top of someone. how the neighbors were set up our tents were about 5 feet from one another. I would also suggest a second bathroom as it was full in am.
Aug 01, 2017
Always a pleasure staying here. Close to so much yet far enough out to enjoy a little nature. Lots of friendly staff, clean bathrooms, well kept grounds, and clean pool. Disappointed that putt putt was under remodel but it didn't ruin my trip. My only complaint was firewood bundle size is very small for the price. We'll be back!!!

showers need improvement and the water in the pool was green but got fixed few days later cam site were clean

It was a very nice campground with a lot of cool activities. It was unfortunate that the mini golf course wasn't open during our stay because that's part of the reason we booked there. It was a little over priced for a non electrical campsite ($35). Not the best value, but there was a lot of trees and shade so it made our tent stay a little more comfortable. Site had a lot of trash when we arrived

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am truly sorry you had a bad experience with us. The sites are check up on departure by 12. the mini golf course was to be completed by now but had a few bumps in the road with lot of rain that has come in. On the bright side it is almost completed now and will be open soon. Have a Bless Day.

Loved the dog agility area. Clean and lots of family friendly amenities.
Jul 21, 2017
Very helpful and friendly staff. Showers and restrooms were clean but need upgrading. Desperately needs a sink for washing dishes.
Jul 16, 2017
Two shower fixtures need to be fixed. We had to wait in line to use one available and functional shower. Swimming pool needs to be cleaned.
Jul 15, 2017
Every thing was great

Great KOA!
Jul 10, 2017
Wonderful stay! Clean facilities! I will stay again.
Jul 10, 2017
Very family friendly. There were many amenities like the pool & play ground. We loved the bounce pad that was added since the last visit. Everything was very clean and well kept.
Jul 09, 2017
Good service. Friendly people. Lots of fun for the kids. Just a all around joyful place to stay

Nice, clean campground with several amenities. The kids loved the jump pillow and pool. The playground areas were nice too. There is a need for a second restroom.
Jul 04, 2017
Good place. No friendly, no helpful people. Rude and no polite.

I am sorry that my staff was rude. I do not tolerate that at all. I assure you I will look into this matter. Hope you have a Bless Day

The Campground itself was great but the noise of the nearby traffic at night was terrible for this tent camper. Kept us awake.
Jul 01, 2017
Friendly staff, Clean. Nice pond and playground. Traffic loud from road

Very clean and shady but very few actual tent sites, we made our reservation several months in advance and were still placed on a strip of gravel rv site also, only ONE bathroom in the whole place with only 2 toilets each and it is nowhere near the tent sites that actually need it

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am truly sorry . For some reason you were put on a RV Site. I will clear this up with the clerk that check you in. Hope you have a Bless Day.

Our tent site was a mud mess! The fire wood they had was wet and didn't burn well! But their pool was great! And the restrooms and showers were clean! We enjoyed watching the animals they have there!
Jun 12, 2017
Fireworks late at night. People walking through your campsite Noisy neighbors at 1:30 AM 200 yards from the interstate Firewood was a poor value
Jun 02, 2017
Really disappointed. The staff was rude, our tent sight was small and all gravel, no shade. They closed the pool and jump pad early every day because they wanted to go home early. You either get woken up by the traffic or the rooster that crows at the crack of dawn. No WiFi, and they appear to not be doing anything about it since many have complained for over a year.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am sorry you had a bad experience. As for the animals we have a lot of people who love them. We never leave our office earlier we are open 8-8 central time. The weather is out of our control. Your tent site T10 is in a location with grass and well shaded. Yes our Wifi stinks new one being install
May 31, 2017
Staff was very courteous and helpful. Bathroom and shower area was clean. If you tent camp I do not recommend site T47. Although it has electric and water the site is very sloped and gets extremely slippry and muddy when it rains.

I had a great time visiting Horse Cave. We weren't able to tour the Caves at Mammoth because we had our pup with us, but we were never short on activities. They had a giant jumping pillow, a pool, a stocked lake for fishing. The bathrooms were spotless. The staff was incredibly attentive and friendly. We will definitely come back! Thanks!

We ended up with a completely flooded tent. Woke up between 6-7am. Had to take everything to a laundry mat 15 miles away to be washed, on site was not big enough for the amount we had! After, finishing laundry, we got back around 11-12. Decided because another storm was on the way it would be better to take out 6 hour trip home! They refused to give us a refund for one night! Our kids were sick!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am sorry mother nature took her toll. That we can not help. As the owner I was here and was unaware you came in for a refund. Hope you have a bless day.
