It was a happy and relaxing time. The children loved kayaking in the lake. I fished off the pier and caught catfish. It was very clean and we met very friendly and helpful neighbors. It was nearly perfect.

People very nice , friendly and helpful.

Felt like a trailer park on a hill. Very crammed in. People on a golf cart immediately began trying to hang out with beer and cigarette smoke. We planned on relaxing together but absolutely could NOT.

please show your desk people how to redeem points when they check in. i had enough points to get 10.00 off but they did not know how to redeem the points for us..we will have to use them on next visit.

With all the open spaces we were put on one that was not a good space to stay on. The septic was hard to got to. We we way away from lake and pool.
May 18, 2019
The staff was very nice and helpful. This is an old KOA. I wish I had know how tight the spaces were.

Love the location, the staff, and the amenities.

We stayed in a tent campsite. The actual site was on a downward slope. Nearly a complete angle. That isn't the worst part. There were very serious concerns for our safety. An argument broke out with a large group of people around us. We were not involved. But we were woken up in the middle of the night with people running through our campsite and screaming. Management did nothing.

Arrived about 4:00pm on Saturday and followed the gentleman to our site. The site was at the bottom of a hill, very small pad surrounded by poison ivy, the utility post had been knocked sideways (got photos), surrounded by permanent residents. It was strange, in that we passed at least 30 empty site, some with decks & views. Worst KOA experience ever! The KOA app??? Really.

Loved the grounds and the people that run it

I had an emergency with the pet dog. They allowed me to leave late with no issues. Very thankful.

These are the worst campsites and roads that we have ever experienced. We reserved a pull thru site for a 40ft motorhome. The site was so uneven that our front tires were off the ground and we still weren’t level. The roads in front of the “pull thru” were so washed out so we had to back the coach all the way out to the main road. This campgrounds should not be a KOA.

Very disappointed I think that if the pools are closed that information should have been told at the time the reservation was made not the day we arrive with swim suits in hand

Full hookups are nice but sites are close to each other. They had an escort help us to the site. Easy access to the lake. Loved the dog park. Beach seems small for the size of the park. Pools were not open yet.

Place was in great location. Roads were in very bad shape, they were uneven with ruts everywhere. Actual campsites need some work to better level them. We were at a site that could accomodate our motorhome and tow dolly and car attached, but the office had us take the car off the tow dolly so we could park at the site, then park the car behind the tow dolly! Makes no sense at all.

The lady working the front desk was the nicest person I've ever met in my entire life.
May 13, 2019
Nice, clean, friendly! The grounds were very well maintained. Staff was even dressed in yellow slickers doing daily chores in the rain. We will definitely stay at this KOA again
May 12, 2019
Nice male greeters but that was it. Store closed early. Had to move our own picnic table from another site. Pool wasn’t open. Sites were not level and quite small. Showers? Gave up looking.

It looked very nice but we didn't actually stay. It took far longer than expected to get there and although I did note a late check-in, there was nothing in the night box. Earlier phone calls were unsuccessful. We arrived after midnight, realized there was no key & no caboose was open for us so we used the restroom, slept in the parking lot for an hour, then found a motel 45 minutes away.

So nice for tent camping right on the lake with amazing sunset and sunrise views. Massive Koa with all facilities you need and very clean.
May 09, 2019
It was ok, but there was no tv reception at our spot at all.
May 06, 2019
NEEDS A LOT OF WORK. SPACES THAT ARE NOT FOR FULL TIMERS ARE NOT ONLY NOT LEVEL BUT DIFFICULT TO ENTER AND EXIT IF YOU OWN MORE THAN A 30 FOOT PULL BEHIND. OUR CLASS A WAS IN THE WRONG PARK

If you’re wanting an overnight stay, and you’re pulling a 39’ fifth wheel with an 8’ bed truck, this is not your park. I stay with the KOA brand expecting a certain level of amenities, and this one fell way short. It was an overpriced State Park.

They put us in the wrong site the people was not to friendly

Leider alles nicht auf dem KOA Standard den wir gewohnt waren.

No Phone Service to Notify them of late arrival (6:30PM). Unable to level trailer on Site. One shower Location at the Rear (Lakeside) of the Campground. No flexibility to relocate to an alternative Site.

The train boxcart is the reason I chose this campground. The boxcart was dirty with dustwebs, live & die bugs on the floor & windowsills. There were a few window blinds that needed to be replaced, when opening them 2 broke. Kitchen sink leaked. Went to office to get housekeeping but they never came. 1st time at a KOA spent a lot of money for a disappointed stay. Grounds wise very BEAUTIFUL!

The entrance is beautiful. The sites are not level...The road leading to the sites is pitched too low; a vehicle could tip over in the gulley of the road...need to fix the roads and level all your sites. The drive thrus need more room to drive thru. It could be a very nice park with the improvements. Good luck.

We should have requested the level handicap site, as we have a disabled tag on both the coach & the dinghy. Had a great time, but some issues with the hills. Can see why golf carts are so popular.
Apr 19, 2019
Nice place to stay, loved the use of the trains cars throughout the property. Fabulous views, my only concern was the site we were put on for one night was uneven and on a sharp downward slope other than that the place was great.

Only stayed one night. Nice facilities. Checked in late. Joe that took me to my site was very friendly.

Awesome camp sites and very clean camp ground. Love the access to the lake from just about any camp site without trouble.

Thank you for your kind words! We love hearing back from our campers. Its reviews like yours that keep our staff motivated and excited to make our park the best it can be!

Staff were excellent but this campground is not set up for big rigs. Very steep and hilly for a 45’ Motorhome

The park model we stayed in was clean and comfortable with the equipment necessary for our stay!
Apr 15, 2019
Impossible sites....too narrow, very unlevel and backing in is impossible at times. This time we were in a spot where the sewer had to go uphill to drain....needless to say...it didn't drain and we had to take care of that problem at our next stop. This is our third time at this KOA and it will be our last.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Charles, we are so sorry to hear you had a negative experience at our campground. We value all feedback from campers and we take them very seriously. We have worked on our sewage issues here at the park and it has improved greatly. Unfortunately, our campground is on a hill which can add some extra challenges to the condition of our campsites. We are working hard to improve and update our sites!

The stay was nice. It is obvious that there is some progress being made on needed repairs to decks, etc. I was disappointed to the lack of activities for guests. My experiences with WiFi over the past three years went from pathetic, improving with new infrastructure, then bad due to poor planning and management. I had to call repeatedly to have AP at site 4 reset. 2.5 mb is not premium.

We came in after hours, and there was a mixup in the site we were assigned, But they were able to correct it in great fashion. The staff there is outstanding and helpful.

The staff was very friendly. The lake view was amazing. The kids played in the water with other kids and had a blast. We will definitely return.

Stayed at a heavy holiday weekend (Labor Day) when the park was at capacity. The weather turned hotter than we expected and the tent was just unbearably hot. The staff worked some magic to get us into an air conditioned cabin. They were super friendly and helpful with a boat trailer issue and with anything we needed.

Great place for our family. Level paved sites that were easy to back in to. Picnic table and green space, on the lake. Sites 1-12 are on the lake. Lake beach, 2 pools and lots of activities for the kids.
