Tent Reviews

Jul 28, 2021
We stayed in the tent area. Our site was nice and spacious, which we chose on a first come basis. We did feel like there could have at least been a porta potty in the tent area; it was pretty far to the bathhouses (1/4 mile from our tent site). Other than that, it seemed like a nice campground.

The campground is clean. But the main thing negative is that the bathroom are at the opposite side in campground from the tents sides. I am pretty sure tent people have a need of bathrooms larger than RV. Maybe building another little bathroom/showers for tent site would be a good idea

First time camping made amazing by your beautiful grounds. Also great that we could choose our own spot. We will be back!

Lack of access to fresh water and bathroom facilities for tenters will keep me from recommending this location.

Front desk was rude. I booked a campsite. The lady pretty much circled where the sites were and sent me on my way. I didn’t realize the sites weren’t marked and had to come back in for clarification. Couldn’t sleep because the bugs were so thick. Had to sleep in my car, so bugs were a little better but it was hot on top of the bugs. Ended up leaving 2 days early. Was denied a refund & embarr

We had a great time. Every staff member we talked to was wonderful and helpful! We are looking into the possibility of doing seasonal.

Well we were directed to the camping spot behind the store....when we get our tent out an put up some guy on a golf cart tells us we were in the wrong spot so we stayed one night left early the next morning and I didn't even get my money back for the next night we didn't even stay

Overall the stay was great! I would like to offer two suggestions: - toilets closer to the tent site - tent sites should be numbered/outlined: I was told by staff that there was one fire pit-table/site. However, on two occasions I returned from a day away to find another tent set up on my site, closer to the FP/T. If I had not come with a friend on another site, I wouldn't have eaten those days

The sound is BEAUTIFUL and overall, it was wonderful. The only downfall is we were tent campers and there are no designated campsites; spots are basically first come first serve in the "tent area". There are NOT enough picnic tables or fire rings for all. You have to hope to find a site with one/them, or snatch it from another site when your neighbors leave. But, again still a beautiful spot!!

The swimming area was not nice & you have to jump off the docks into the water /no beach area so not safe for kids unless they know how to swim...There is also NO pool which is not great for kids BUT they have a nice playground area&a jump pad for the kids! The bath house has only 4 restrooms/showers&is pretty far from the tent areas but you can use the restroom @ the checkin. Icecream is for sale

Downlow on Tent Camping: very primitive. A far walk to bathhouses/toilets. Lots of bugs/ants/loud raccoons around so bring lots of bug interventions! One tent site had a ring and table, but when we came back to the site at night there was a group in our space so if u find a fire ring, claim it! Park ur car up on it so no one joins you! Rent the golf cart for gorgeous views! Great Location/price !

The campsite was clean and the tent sotes were nice. The only downfall is that there are NO bathrooms by the tent sites. Also no real place to go swimming with little kids.

Awesome stay at the tent site! Only downside was no bathroom close by!

Thank you! We are hopeful to add an additional bath house closer to our awesome tent campers!

Bathrooms were not the best! Water would run super hot then down right cold! But other than that nice little place!

Love the camping area it’s beautiful however the store hours were disappointing compared to other KOAs which is a deal breaker for my husband, who enjoys the stores.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry about that! We have done our best on staffing and our camp store is back open 7 days a week! We hope ya'll give us a second chance!

For my first time camping I loved it. Could use more space for the tent area for the people who would like a little more privacy.

The camp itself is beautiful, staff is great but this site has several issues that need to be corrected before I would consider coming back here. - There is one bath house 1/2 mile from tent sites. Showers/toilets are not separate. If 4 ppl are showering, there are no toilets available for the rest of the camp. -There are no fireplace grates/grills at tent sites. I had to go buy a grill!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the feedback. We have a family BH with four rooms and another Bathhouse behind the event center. 5 stalls and 3 showers each men/women. Our goals is to have bathhouses near the tent sites. Most guests bring a portable grill. We will look into to getting grills.

Great place to camp whether your in a tent or RV. Great place for kids with plenty of activities. Facilities where very clean.

Thank you so much! We hope you come see us again this season!

We are tent campers and your section needs some work. I understand that it’s a new campground to KOA but the tent section needs to at minimum have a water source. The roads for the “Nature Trail” are being used by the teenagers and golf carts. They ride them right thru your tent site

My return to the Campground was quite pleasant. I had a twenty year run of staying there when it was Hampton Lodge, mostly to attend the semi annual star party. Thank you for installing a sky friendly lighting system. Previously Hampton Lodge had excellent skies, now they are better if possible. The facilities are a great improvement. Enjoyed my stay, See you next year.

We stayed in a tent site, the sites were very isolated which was great, gave us plenty of room and shade. Only recommendation I have for this KOA, are the bath house are a bit far from the tent area. Recommend building another bath house/restroom located in the field beside the tent sites so we do not have to walk 10 minutes from the site just to use the restroom and shower.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

So glad you enjoyed your stay! We do have plans in the works to put in another bath house closer to the tent sites

Great Campground for tent camping. clean, quiet, plenty of space between sites. Staff was extremely helpful upon our late arrival in helping us find the tent area and a spot to camp. amenities and services were top notch. Overall a great campground with lots to offer. We will return!!!

We are happy to hear that you had a great time! We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Loved the pumpkin painting and haunted forest! Very nice campground, but seemed like there should be restroom/ shower facilities closer to the entrance side. If there are some they are not on the map.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and our activities! We currently have two bath houses on site, behind the camp store and the blue and yellow bath house across from the playground. Plans to add another are in the works!

My stay was horrible-I left 3 night earlier than planned. I reserved a tent site. I checked in after the office was closed, and my check in information was left in a box by the door. When I arrived, there were bugs covering the door and the box. The regular tent sites were closed so I was directed to an empty grassy field. The bathhouse was too far away to walk. Will never stay here again.

We had a tent site. We did appreciate that the sites were secluded and we had a good time overall. However, it would have been nice to have a restroom closer. Also, I would have liked to see our site a little cleaner. There was trash under a tree and egg shells. While I understand bugs and such are part of being outdoors, the amount in the shower/bathrooms was a little excessive.

Great place!! I love all of the activities for the kids!!! Such a great getaway!

Thank you! We make sure we always have fun activities for the kiddos every weekend!

Great area right on the sound. Nice and quiet place to camp and relax.

We enjoyed our mini weekend camping trip but this KOA needs some updates for tent campers. The ‘site’ was nice and secluded but sites are not labeled & are 1st come 1st serve. It’s hard to distinguish one site from the next. Clear camping pads and site numbers would help. Biggest issue is bathrooms. Those that need them the most- tent campers- are the farthest away. Even a porta potty would
