Campground Reviews

Feb 15, 2020
This KOA is run by some very nice people. I enjoyed my stay there and would stay there again if needed. The reason I would not recommend it to others is that there is not much to do in the area. It is located in a rural setting, which was nice but void of anything to do outside the campground. There are a lot of transient workers living there for one of the industries.

Campground very clean. Staff is very friendly and attentive. This seems common throughout KOA.

Beautiful site and helpful staff. Gravel pad was not as level as It should have been. Main turn off was the political adverting for sale in the office store. Poor judgement does not match the property.

Absolutely beautiful and awesome. Staff were so accommodating and nice. Would highly recommend.

Very nice quiet place out of the way from all the hubbub. The county road leading into it needs desperate repair. Great folks. Need to get some TV connections.

Very clean and friendly scenic campsite

I give 4 stars instead of 5 because concrete slabs with patio areas at each camper site would be a huge improvement. Area, park and employees are phenomenal at such an early stage, being a new KOA ! Facilities are super clean. Employees are the best I've ever encountered in any park anywhere in my construction travels !

Beautiful park!!! Be great if they had cable.

Very friendly staff even with us coming in around 10 pm he still came out to help us get backed in ok. Add more things to do lighted pool , hot tub , club house . Grand kids really enjoyed playing bingo. We will be back in summer. Hope we will be able to find a spot

Too expensive for an over night stay. Very pretty setting on the bay.

This new KOA is still basically under construction, with many more great plans for the near future. Our stay was lovely. Our rear bumper of our 5th Wheel was literally only a few yards from the shoreline of Lavaca Bay, or Matagorda Bay (whatever it is called). The location was gorgeous. The park is clean, organized and well maintained. If we're ever back here, we will stay at this KOA.

We had a great stay at Port Lavaca KOA. The staff was outstanding! The park is very clean and current. We enjoyed the activities and the views! This KOA is very peaceful. I think the price of $68 dollars is high, but really enjoyed the place. Maybe in the future...concrete sites???

My stay was awesome! The staff is helpful and understanding, as well as very friendly. I spent 3 months here and my only 2 complaints are the lack of cable TV (which really isn't a huge issue) and the lack of fire pits at the sites. The other big plus is the location. You're in the middle of the open country right on the water, the night sky is amazing here. 10/10 will return some day.

We stayed in the new cabin #1, great inside and out, facing directly toward the ocean. The amenities are exactly what you need for a short stay, frig, coffee maker, MW, 2 burner stove w/utensils and dishes. There's a TV, but the front porch view was more interesting! Thank you, D'An, Donny, Angie and Michel, and anybody we didn't meet. Your hard work made our mini vacation really easy!

However, we do try to keep the noise at a bare minimum so we do not disturb our guests. Again, we apologize we did not meet your expectations and would love to host you again to make it right. Safe travels

Awesome time! My wife, two young kids (2 and 4) and myself enjoyed the New Year's Celebration for 2019-2020. Very clean bathrooms/showers, amazing club house, awesome fireworks and a lot of fun. The staff is very friendly. We will definitely be back!

The staff were amazingly friendly & helpful. The bathrooms were spotless. We enjoyed bingo, pinball, fishing, cheese & wine. Management seems to be making daily improvements to the entire facility. We highly recommend this KIA and will definitely go back!

Great place to stay. I was a late arrival and the park called to ensure we were safe and not having any troubles on our drive. The waited up for us to help get us backed in to our spot as well. We had a great time at the "Wine and Cheese" get together that the park hosted. We will be back!

Nice campground near the Bay. But pictures on website gave me another Idea than the reality... Website say there is a year round pool so you assume IT is heated in winter time... Other than fishing there is nothing to do...

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We would first like to thank you for being our guest.Secondly we would like to apologize. While our pool is open year round, it's not heated, however, our hot tub is located next to the pool and open all year. We do offer several recreational activities, arcade game, campground activities, kayak rental & a pickleball court coming soon. We would love to host you again, if given the opportunity! :)

Delightful get-away in a country setting. This new KOA is a treasure with a lovely beach and waterfront area. The washrooms are super clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. We felt very welcome with the appreciation dinner social gathering and pancake breakfast. We will be happy to return when we travel this way next time.

Owners and staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The park is beautiful. Very clean and well maintained. Lots are huge and very level. We had a waterfront lot and all we could see was water from our windows. Lovely park. Not much to see or do in the area or we would have stayed longer.

Great getaway and the staff was very accommodating. The wi-fi however is very hit and miss. The location is very far from about everything but if you're just looking to getaway we would recommend them. Great weekender!

New campground and they are really doing it right! Located on the bay with nice views. We had a site that included a fire pit, chairs and table outside that was very nice. Staff is very helpful and friendly. It is definitely a place to get away from everything because it is in the middle of nowhere but we made a trip into Port Lavaca and drove to a beach reserve about an hour away that was nice
