Still building and improving this new campground, it's still a little rough around the edges. The sites are nice, spacious, many along the water. The staff is 10 stars! The improvements they told me are coming sound great, we will definitely be back next year!

We had a wonderful time despite the weather turning on us. Before the change we had a great time catching fish from the shore and our kids enjoyed the saltwater pool. The lark is still developing but the spot is perfect. We will be back!

We did not know this area at all, and had to make a blind choice. Although we usually Google map stalk a campground, it was useless in this case because the campground is brand new. I am glad we chose the KOA because between their photos, and the sitemap, it looked really lovely. It was also about the place we wanted to stop for a few nights. Everyone was super friendly. We'll be back!

Thank you for your lovely review. Hope you can come back and visit us again. Hope to have a Pavilion up and will be doing some activities. Cindy (manager)

This campground is nice and clean. Not a lot to do for children, but all in all it was a great stay! The staff was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again if we were ever in the area!

Nice place. Well kept. Still in the process of full birth. Not much around but right on the bay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are right on the bay and away from the noise and the traffic. A place to come and relax and watch the dolphins in the bay. We are still growing and hope you can come visit us again. Cindy (manager)

Nice campground, love the location it is still under construction so you do hear the workers. Pool looks great but weather did not co-operate with using it. Loved all the wildlife and birding was great, nice view of the bay nice fishing pier. Bathrooms individual which is nice and they were clean. Staff super friendly will be back.

Overall a good sight nice and quite ..right on the water..a few things I didnt like though roads are really bumpy and the laundry mat only has 3 washer and 3 dryers for so many people ,it made doing laundry difficult ..staff is helpful and nice

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the review! We apologize for the roads. When the rain stops, the roads are being worked on. We are always making improvements. We have a lot of great things happening here. Come back and see us soon!

I needed some quiet time to do paperwork. So the only thing the weather did not cooperate to well. Lots of rain and very cool. The workers were all very friendly, and I enjoyed Angie and became friends. That is always a nice thing.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed your stay. Unfortunately the weather has been very unusual. Hope you can come back and see all our improvements as we move along. Angie is great an asset to us. Cindy (Manager)

I think they need more time to get it to KOA standards

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are a new campground and have a lot of exciting things coming to our park! The unusual weather has slowed us down a bit, unfortunately, but our pool is now open and we have cabins coming soon! Please come back and visit us!
Feb 21, 2019
This is a very quiet place to stay which we like. However we saw very few people out and about as we were there for four days. It was very windy everyday but that can't be helped. It is a little pricey but a great few of the bay and close to other things to visit. It is still undergoing construction projects and look forward to seeing all the improvements. Will most likely visit again.

Thank you for your review. We have great plans for the campground and would love you to come back and visit with us. Cindy (manager)

Great location, beautiful, right on Carancua bay. Clean, quiet, well-maintained. Good hosts, work constantly and overtime to assure good service. Site needs drainage work (excessive rains last fall), but will be a problem (with mosquitos and roads if not addressed ASAP). Really enjoyed my stay. Plan to return in 6-8 weeks for another week or so.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you so much for your review. We are working on the drainage, but mother nature is not giving us a break. Looking forward to your return. We have great plans for the future. Cindy (Manager)

The road to this KOA is a little rough and the entrance road is very rough and needs to be paved. All sites are gravel. The back in site was backwards for backing in, had to back in on the drivers blindside. For a new park I would of paved the entrance and RV sites. The bay view and fishing pier is nice. Nice clean pool and play ground area. Friendly staff.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your review. We are a new campground and working everyday to make it a great campground. We are a country setting, and we make repairs to the roads everyday. We have had so much rain since September, but we are doing our best have not control over weather. Hope you can come back sometime and see all our improvements and enjoy our new pool. Thank you Cindy (Manager)
Feb 20, 2019
Sites are on top of one another. They are gravel and the road into the site is dirt with holes filled with gravel. Angles of sites make entry and exit a little more difficult then most RV campgrounds. For a KOA, I was very underimpressed. I will say the staff was lovely as well as the bay. Not many sites have a view and there is nothing special about the campground itself. I would pass on this.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the review. Sorry our campground does not meet your expectation. We are a one of kind spot on the water with million dollar views ,bird watching, dolphin watching, star gazing and family friendly activity. There is nothing like it, and every spot is unique. We understand not everyone is looking for what we have to offer, and we appreciate the fact you gave us a chance

The campground is nice with the exception of the pot holes and rough road. The sites are nice and well kept. We will return when the weather warms up a bit more.

The whole rv park is a mud hole. The roads are terrible, When you picture a koa this isnt what you expect to see. Especially for the price! Vehicles get covered in mud just from driving down the gravel roads, then your not even allowed to wash vehicles on site. Rules change and and seem to get more strict by the month. Not only do you feel unwelcomed, But the location is very boring as well.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Unfortunately it has been raining for several weeks,which is not normal for our area. However, we work on the roads as soon as the rain stops. We are out in the country and take pride in our setting. If you are looking to relax and camp by the gulf, this is the right place to come. In order to have a nice, safe property we have to have rules in place. We hope you understand.

A new KOA. Office, showers, laundry are new and clean. Staff is friendly. Looks like most other infrastructure is under construction.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your review. We are the newest built KOA in the country, and strive to be the best! We are always trying to improve and hope that we can accommodate all of our guests. We have lots of great things happening here and wonderful things on the way! Hope to see you again, soon!
Feb 04, 2019
Looks pleasant for a new park, quiet and peaceful. With good help and time, I am sure that it will become the 'go to ' place to stay on the bay. I will return to see if this comes true. I would have angled the trailer pads to look at the gulf, but that is my opinion.

This is a beautiful setting for a new campground. If you want a spot out in the country this is it, except it need some work. It had been raining for weeks before our stay. The road in the campground and the sites were full of pot holes and soft. Angie, was very helpful and full of information about the area. If raining, do not go here.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have had very unusual weather, and unfortunately we have had difficulty maintaining the roads because of all the rain. Please know we are constantly making improvements and strive to be the best campground around. We have several great things happening at our park and we hope you give us another shot. We'd love to be your go to vacation spot! Thank you for the review and I will pass this along!

This park is new, so there is a lot of construction and The roads are not very big rig friendly. The people were friendly and helpful.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are working everyday to make this a great KOA campground. We do have large pull through sites, and our sites accompany up to 70'-90'. We are always striving to make this a great place and look to accommodate guests the best way we can. Your review is appreciated and I will pass this on to our team. Thank you and we hope to see you again.

Great area, beautiful views if you have the bayside spots. Only reason for 4 stars is the WiFi is very weak so it was hard to watch streaming, or do anything on the internet, kept dropping and you almost had to go back to office to resign in and then it would drop once back st your trailer

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your review. We are working on the WI-FI, but not set up for streaming. We have several campers using internet. Hope to see you again.

Campground was new host was great the price was a little high for not having cable and the Internet was sketchy in part of the park overall the area is nice the view was nice right on the bay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your review. We are working on better internet. Unfortunately someone took one of our boosters and we just discovered that is was missing. We are a new campground and working hard to make it the best. Please come see us again.

Such a crappy place where you can’t own a diesel truck used only for work or you’ll get kicked out.. I don’t recommend anyone staying there the staff’s really know how to rip people off.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do our best to ensure all of our guests have a peaceful and quiet time during their stay at our campground. You had a modified truck, some of our guests brought your loud diesel truck to our attention, due to the custom modifications you had made that caused it to be louder than normal. Per our policies,we asked that you return the truck to its normal factory noise level, but you chose not to

Friendly, accommodating staff made our stay extra easy. Nice view of the bay, short run to town for groceries, etc. This KOA is still in its first year or two, and the growing pains show, but this is a gem in the making!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your review. We are working hard to make improvements and to make this the best KOA. Hope you can come back and visit us sometime in the future.

New campground that will be nice. The host were very nice. The view was great. The laundry room very nice. 15 - 20 minute drive to town. It’s new and under construction so the roads were terrible, full of big potholes. Surprised that a new campground did not have cable tv. Most KOAs we have been to have cable. Also the WiFi worked at the office but was nonexistent at our site.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your review. It has been raining so much that we are having a hard time keeping up with the road, but we are currently working on the drainage. Unfortunately we discovered that someone took one of our booster for internet and we are having it replaced and adding more throughout the campground. I hope you will come back and see all our improvements sometime in the future.

middle of no where. And to expensive.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are out in the country and located right on the Bay! We hope you enjoyed the time taking in the views. We have lots more on the way,as we strive be the best campground around. Please keep checking back. We also offer hot deals often! Hope to see you soon!
Jan 21, 2019
The owners are great people! They were just opening up when we moved in May of last year..they were upfront about campground being under construction at that time. We stayed for almost 8 months and never had a problem with anything or anyone! Great fishing and beautiful view on the bay!! Highly recommend staying there even if it’s only for a weekend!!

Stayed here while working in Port Lavaca... its a great place to stay. Some of the guys at work said its too exspensive and there are cheaper places, but for all the amenities, the cleanliness, the friendliness and helpfulness of the employees and the owners, the view on the bay, and the security in knowing no one is gonna mess with me or my stuff i think its priced just right. My only complaint would be that you cant store anything outside of your camper with the exception of a bicycle. Even if its stored neatly in a container under your camper. Other than that i love this place
