Campground Reviews

Feb 08, 2019
A new KOA. Office, showers, laundry are new and clean. Staff is friendly. Looks like most other infrastructure is under construction.

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!

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.

Glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again. Cindy

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.

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!!

Campground is being built. Not fully ready.Parking at sites is stones and dry every where else was mud.They are working on it but a lot needs to be done. Staff is very friendly and welcoming. Pool will be nice.Waterfront nice. Look forward to going back in drier weather.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately we have had so much rain since September, but we are putting in drainage and working hard to make this the Best Campground that we can. Hope you get a chance to come visit with us again.

Beautiful park right on the bay, clean grounds, good laundry room. Would go back.

This KOA has a great future because they are working hard to improve every day! This location is quiet, peaceful and relaxing. It is fairly remote, but shopping is available. A new pool has been installed, new fire rings and tables and fresh stones have been used to level the sites. I would be happy to see the progress they made in the future.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. Looking forward to seeing you again.

Next time please come into the office and I can help you with the WiFi and unfortunately we have had a lot of rain since September. We are doing our best to put in some drainage. I do hope you come back and see all our improvements.

It's a new KOA but was great. Staff was warm and friendly and showers/bathrooms were spotless. Some reviewers were critical because it was new and less perfect - it's a work in progress but my guess is it will be fantastic once its complete. I would definitely stay here again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. Come visit us again. We are a work in progress. Merry Christmas.

Very friendly staff. Large clean site with a great view. Campground is still being completed, not a lot of activity in the area. Peaceful-
Nov 30, 2018
The park is perfect once you get past the construction. I will definitely be back to see how it all turns out.

The employee that just came in from Canada was a delight . The other lady was rude . And the man building the pool yelled at my husband .Way overpriced offered us no discount for long term stay we spent almost 900 for 15 days . Will never be back !

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry we did not meet your expectations. The pool was under construction at the time and we had many contractors on site

This campground is a small, bayside campground with level, gravel sites. It offers a clean bathhouse and store. The pool is undergoing renovation. The sites have no shade. The campground is mainly filled with monthly rentals.
Nov 27, 2018
Too much money for a muddy road & gravel site pad. Not enough parking to accommodate two vehicles. Water well had issues for 2 days and was not informed and or given discount for the inconvenience of their problem. Also when I had to take my RV in for service work I had to break my monthly lease and was not refunded the difference of the days lost. Wasn't a happy camper.
Nov 25, 2018
We were very disappointed in this KOA. It was not to the typical KOA standard. It was muddy, no drainage, very messy around trailers, & the office area looks like a construction zone. The trash dumpster was way to far away. However, the bathrooms were nice & clean. On a positive note, Michel was outstanding! He helped us with our trailer & was very pleasant and friendly. I give him a 10+ rating!

We are the newest KOA in the US . We have had rain for several months. Our maintenance crew is out there everyday making improvements. Dumpsters are located at the exit to campground for your convenience to dispose of trash on your way out and away from our campers. We are working to make this the best KOA.
Nov 05, 2018
Nice place. Would stay there again!

The Ways on Campground are horrible.

We require all our guests to adhere to campground rules, this is for the benefits of all.

We arrived at Port Lavaca KOA in May and stayed until September 30th! Our time there was wonderful! The owners bent over backwards to make their guests feel welcome. Very friendly staff and nice clean facilities! I highly recommend! The views of the bay as well as the breeze were a plus! Continuous ongoing upgrades! Take my word for it and visit this campground! You'll never want to leave! ��
Sep 10, 2018
Staff was very nice, Yall had a lot of rain and the sites was soft and muddy, Your daily rate is highway robbery. I think that they are taking advantage of everyone just because of the work in the area. I'm sorry to say that KOA will be the my last resort.
Sep 05, 2018
Missy and Ethan and staff were very friendly, helpful and considerate. Missy was very kind to offer us a site closer to the main house and gave us the same rate. The move made doing laundry so much easier. I had three loads to do! The facilities are very clean. Love the individual rooms for the showers. Site is well groomed and level. Very good wifi too! We definitely will be back.
Sep 01, 2018
The staff are very nice and exhibits great customer service skills. They are less than 2 months old and are all working very hard to make this KOA a destination worth going to. Just 2 small items: all the back bathrooms have a code, but (probably due to our late arrival) we did not get the code. Also, I didn’t see the WiFi available yet. However, we loved the location, and site setup was great
Aug 28, 2018
Great for a new KOA, all is clean and new, but on the water it is a little windy at times.
Aug 27, 2018
Facilities were neat and clean. Camp store had the little things that we needed. Bring a casting net to catch your bait or shrimp for dinner. We are already looking forward to a return trip.
Aug 25, 2018
The owners, or original park managers were amazing! After 4 months of our stay, new people stepped in to run it and it was a nightmare. Electricity was outrageous and differed every month! Very rude and unfriendly. We travel for work and needless to say, we emptied their park and everyone pulled out within a week!
Aug 18, 2018
It was great, besides working all the time. Everyone was very friendly.
Aug 16, 2018
Great location . Very helpfull office staff when open . Needed some ice Saturday morning but no one showed up to open until almost noon. Understand hiring issues being new so was not a problem . Biggest issue we had was the location of the dumpsters when you drive into the park. Dumpsters were over flowing and trash all on the ground. Not a good first impression !
Aug 14, 2018
Campground was clean and bathrooms. Great view of the bay. Attendants were courteous and friendly.Thought it would have a sandy beach but felt uncomfortable going into water since it was close to a dock.
Aug 10, 2018
Found this new KOA park and went there for work at local refinery. LOVED this little park that is steadily growing. The staff was awesome and met our needs. Will definitely be going back for pleasure!

Excellent. Super staff.
Jul 25, 2018
This is a new KOA and barely opened when got there. The hookups at the sites were very nice and new. The owner was outgoing you could tell he wanted to please his guests. The kampground is somewhat remote. If you are looking for peace and quiet you will find it here. The bay is right off of the the campground with fishing and kayaking. A lot of long termers there but a very friendly quiet bunch.
Jul 15, 2018
New location, less than a month after opening. Nice and quiet, friendly staff and owners who were very accommodating to guests. Camp store had basic essentials and nice facilities. Need larger KOA sign off of main road, recommend an air compressor for guests (inflatables on water) nearest air was 13 miles away. Looking forward to future additions and our return trip in the fall.

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
