Barb and Roger were very helpful and understanding. We loved staying in such a green and beautiful place. The facility was very clean. We will return next year. We highly recommend this KOA

Well maintained and plenty of space for kids. Clean facilities. And a quiet area despite being close to highways and I90.

The camp host was very accommodating and helpful to us! We stayed there 4 nights as we had appts with our daughter at the Mayo Clinic. Due to her disability, the handicap shower was not adequately equipped with safety equipment that we needed. They immediately went out and purchased a shower chair and a hand held shower head. It made all the difference in the world for us. Entire camp was lovely!

Great place to spend the night.

We had trouble backing into the site so our guide called ahead and found a pull through site that was empty. We really appreciated it! Enjoyed our quiet 2 nights, our first time at a KOA.

Great stay. One minor issue with showers...the facilities were over the top clean and well maintained. However when entering the shower, The showerhead was quite large for the space, so was unable to position it to avoid being sprayed. A smaller showerhead would be all that is necessary to fix. That said....one of the best kept KOAs I have stayed at!

We had a warm welcome. The lady helped us by giving us a KOA keyboard with our member number and gave us a new KOA directory. Their laundry facility was outstanding. The RV park was beautiful and well maintained.

Nice clean camp ground. I asked for quiet and I got the quietest and I think the best camp spot for my 23' trailer. In the back corner it was so quiet and relaxing while visiting a family member at the Mayo. Loved being here.

Stayed at the Marion KOA multiple times. Had good rapport with Barb. Called TWO MONTHS ahead of time to book & to GET THE SITE we wanted. When we arrived we were told that site would be taken by someone else coming in two nights,then another. We were to be there weeks! I was there for surgery and got put in a site we hated! I was pissed the entire time! Trust was broken. WE WILL NOT BE BACK!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

When you arri8ved I told you about several sites I could put you in. You picked the one you were in. I did tell you I could put you in the site you wanted in a few days. You decided to stay where you were. Like you people are here for the clinic. Never know when they will be leaving. Sorry.

Campground and common areas ( ie bathrooms) were spotless. Excellent showers. Fast and reliable wifi. Only around 8 miles from Mayo Clinic. This KOA is truly a gem. Glad we discovered it!

Camping was fine just disappointed in the playground. Should be replaced and updated with safe toddler friendly features!

We don't use the rest rooms or pool so can not comment on that, but we have been coming here for 20 plus years and have enjoyed each trip. A little road noise but not bad at night. Grounds are kept neat and clean. Wednesday the test siren goes off and it is very loud so prepare for that. We just chose to come in on Thursday to avoid it now. All and all, one of our nicer camping experience

Between the owner being rude, wanting to charge extra for cleaning the cabin (its there job to clean) charging for extra guest after complaining about it. using pretreated, and scrap pallets for firewood, There is no way in the world you could pay me to go back to this place. I love KOA, but as far as going back to Rochester KOA not a chance in the world. Very Rude, Charge for everything.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do not charge extra for cleaning the Kabin. We do not use scrap pallets for fire wood. We do chare for visitors it is covid time.

We are new rv campers. We had a reservation for just one night, but I had made an error with on line registration . We needed a longer site and thankfully she was able to find an open site next to the office. She was very helpful and the site was great. It was flat, hard surfaced, clean and quiet! Thank you for making our stay pleasant .

great hosts ( Barb and Roger ) Nice green Park, but the trees need a lot of pruning and removal of the dead ones. Great place to stay. We stayed there for 2 months in our 20 ft Frog.

I stay here several times a year. It is a very family friendly place.

The hosts went way out of their way to accommodate us. My wife was hospitalized with Covid for more than a week and they worked hard to help me

Too close to the highway, site required some leveling, good shade at my site.
Sep 05, 2021
Super helpful with site direction and parking, bathrooms very clean and secure. We were very busy, did not get a chance to enjoy pool. Thanks .

One of the best KOA's we have ever stayed in. We had a terrible accident upon leaving, all unhurt. But our truck and RV were destroyed. The owners reached put and supported us and gave us a cabin for the night. The gas station where the acciddent occurred also helped us find a truck so we could continue to our destination Good people live here!!!

Nice place.

Grass not cut or trimmed in the back sites in a long time. Messy branches laying all over. Wasp nest in the electrical box right next to ours. It's a very messy place.

A big shout out for Barb (KOA Owner) - she went above and beyond, to help another camper that had some issues on Saturday. Thanks Barb, good to know people still care about each other.

Nothing bad, just nothing that stands out either.

Well kept KOA. Very nice owner, very helpful. Clean rest rooms. Road nice was noticeable but running our a/c blocked it while sleeping. Pool could have been a little warmer. This is a great option vs hotels while going to the Mayo Clinic.

Just overnight but quiet and very helpful personnel.
