Friendly staff, well kept.

The arcade was completely closed. Games were not working at all. The pumps don't work on the pool so the chlorine was not getting mixed correctly. It caused the eyes to burn and bloodshot. Watch how everything gets charged to your card. We had a couple of issues of overpayment. And it was resolved nicely by the front office. The views are pretty! The park is small, but nice.

Thank you for your review; we are very sorry about the arcade being closed due to COVID-19. Only outside games are open due to the pandemic. We will re-open the arcade as soon as it is safe to do so, we post on koa.com what is closed. Pool pumps are on a timer and we monitor chemicals regularly

It was a fantastic stay. We got a little bit of showers but overall it was time well spent. For sure we will be coming back again.

Nice enough site, good landscaping and hook ups. The star looser is how packed the individual sites are. Having the neighbors kids playing corn hole four feet away from my TT, actually hitting my slide out with a poor shot is a little disconcerting. They were in their "yard" at the time, so the only fault is the site layout. Maybe midweek in the off season is ok, but summer weekend is PACKED.

Very clean and everyone in the office/store was super friendly. Our site was very level with a nice concrete patio and fire pit. Only negative thing was the amount of fire ants. Would like to see them try to combat those little evil pests. We will definitely go back and stay here.

Over all we had a great time. Wish there would have been a little more shad and a little better beach area. But we did enjoy our stay. Thank you!

Excellent get-a-way place! This location exceeded our expectations & we plan to return for sure! Very friendly staff & beautiful clean grounds. Beach was very shelly as the entire area was like that so I recommend water shoes! We brought our own kayaks to use in the bay channel area, but you can rent them. But the water was perfect, pool was great, and common areas was very nice accommodations!!!!

We were first timers, taking our motorhome on her "maiden voyage". To say this experience was a success is an understatement! Staff was always friendly, willing to help & did an excellent job keeping the location in tip top shape & in accordance w/ social distancing measures. The location was beautiful, relaxing & such a breath of fresh air. We will be back to enjoy all that this location offers!

Was given the worst spot upon checking in. Had to request a better spot that was open. Why did we have to do that? Why not give people the best spots and opportunities to enjoy your park? Why shove them to a spot that has no waterfront patio vs one that does when they book the highest rate?

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am sorry you did not like the spot you booked online, we did move you to another spot you liked better upon request. We do our best to accommodate specific sites requests as much as possible

Campsite is fairly new. Staff was friendly. Restrooms were clean. On-site fishing pier is really small. Holds about 3 or 4 people fishing.

Cabin was highlight of the visit, it was cute and clean. Biggest issue was wasps outside cabin. We got stung & reported it and was told it would be taken care of, but it never was during our stay, this was very disappointing & made going outside of our cabin or going up to the deck impossible & dangerous. Bunk room is too hot.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for review, we are glad you enjoyed the cabin except for the wasp and we are very sorry about the sting. We had to spray couple of times to get rid of the nest, it is now gone

Table was wobbly and it wasn't handicap friendly. At night the tv didn't work real good because it said to adjust the tv antenna. Overall it was nice.

We were there when this first opened and many great improvements have been done. Love how wide the sites and distance between sites is especially this year with the virus. Internet speed fantastic, view of water great on site we were on however plans to build cabins behind those lots will ruin that view. They had great fireworks. Surprised weeds were not sprayed on the gravel lots as their do wel

View of the Bay was great, staff was helpful, people were friendly. The KOA Patio site we had was a disappointment as it was not as nice as other KOA Patio sites we have visited.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your review, we have waterfront sites, some with tree, some with patios, directly on the water with million dollar views. The layout of the land is unique and absolutely gorgeous, but we are limited by the natural setting. You can see dolphins, swim, catch wild fish directly from site

Location of this KOA is lovely. However, I didn't give the best rating because the road and sites are surfaced with caliche, making walking and setting up difficult and painful. Didn't bother riding our bikes on the uneven surface.

Staff friendly and helpful. Sites are way to close together. Our sit dining table was almost touching the sewer hookup on the next site. Not a nice place to enjoy a meal.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comment, sorry about the picnic table, we take comments seriously and as an opportunity for improvement. We will relocate the table away from the neighbors hookup. Our sites are 60-120 feet long, we will find better place for the picnic area for the next guest
