Campground Reviews

Aug 31, 2023
We had the pleasure of staying at the Rochester / Marion KOA Journey for 13 days while visiting family. Katie, the park manager is the best. Not only is she extremely pleasant, but she is super-efficient as well. She helped us set up a family reunion in a beautiful corner of the park on the first weekend of our visit. The park grounds are spacious and well maintained. Can’t say enough positive t

Had a great stay as we were passing through on our way from PA to CA. Campground was very quiet, we were able to switch our campsite to a more shaded one with no problems. Bathrooms were clean and pool was kept after nicely. If I had any complaints, it would be that the prices of everything here were a bit higher than at any of the other places we have stayed recently.

Very nice quiet campground.

Nice, flat site with some shade. Pool was perfectly refreshing for a 100 degree day. Only question is when I put in book it directed me to full hook up sites and only 2 sites available for the night. We only needed water and electric. When we got there campground was completely open. Maybe they only have full hook ups. Great location.

Beautiful setting in the country with lots of trees and grass. Sorta didn't like having to pay for full hook-up when all we needed was electric but we would go back for sure. The staff was helpful and made us feel welcome.

I thought it is a good place and quiet, but a little rough around the edges and the pool was to cold to swim in.

Stayed here 2x Now! Been welcomed with open arms by the Owner's & their daughter! Love it here. This time around Charlie had the RC cars out. Some guy had a drone. Was cool to play with RC cars. Then I suggested we play volley ball & 15 minutes later I had the owner KT coming at us flipping a volleyball up in the air with extra players. Was the coolest thing! Son & I will try & squeak one more in

They charged me full hookups when all I needed was electric. I have no water or any holdings tanks. I paid the same as the big rvs and campers that have electric water and sewer. I don't think that is fair.

Due to a medical procedure at Mayo, we just spent almost a month. The owners were so kind and accommodating. You can tell they work hard to treat their guests accordingly. We highly recommend this campground!

The hosts were incredibly welcoming and cheerful. The campground was clean, well-kept, and had lots of green space for us to enjoy with our dogs. Not our first stay, and won't be our last!

The campground was very outdated. There were a lot of dead trees and the picnic tables had peeling paint and we feared getting paint slivers. There were old unsightly unused trucks parked in some of the camping spots. The pool itself was pretty good, however many of the pool chairs were ripped and/or broken (very unsafe). The park needs a lot of updating! Stay at the state park nearby instead.

The owners were very helpful. Responded quickly to issues. Campground is an older one but the new owners are working to get it in order. Would definitely stay there again.

$60 per night, $74 if you have 2 kids, for that kinda money you would expect good service! But we where there 5 days and the pool was closed for no reason, then when I called the number that was left on the door because the actual store was closed as well. On the 3rd try someone finally answered and then refused to open the pool and when I asked why they hung up on me! Just terrible!!! Terrible!!!

For the price we paid a hotel would have been nicer. We weren’t able to use the pool as it was locked for the duration of our stay. Paying extra to having a family of four was ridiculous. The front desk staff even hung up on our friends that were staying in another site when they asked about why the pool was closed when there had been guests previously swimming in there. Unprofessional!

Need coin machine for laundry. Very friendly staff. Would like to see some TLC to the playground. Nice general store. Not sure if the quick rain reflects flooding areas of some of the RV sites. Overall nice Journey KOA.

The park is very run down. Scaled back office hours. It is a convenient location for an annual trip we take, if at all possible we will not stay here again.

Great campground for overnight and extended stays. The Staff is very nice and accommodating and it is apparent they are working hard on daily management. A few upgrades would be great such as replacing the wood on picnic tables, replacing shower curtains monthly, daily shower cleaning and mold mitigation, and putting in large multi roll (5 roll) toilet paper holders in the stalls.

We appreciated the golf court escort to our assigned spot to be sure we were navigating the property correctly. The showers and bathroom were clean. We visited the store/office once with a question and again the staff was friendly and helpful. One suggestion - a "back in a minute" sign for the counter when the staff step away; we arrived to an empty desk and were confused about how to get rolling.

My husband counted 15 dead trees. The other trees were in bad need of trimming, lots of branches hanging over the roads thru the campground. The website say’s your office stays open until 7, we arrived at 6 and they were closing. They mowed across from our camper and thru rocks that hit our camper.

Quiet campground, staff was nice. Overall campground needs an update showers needed a good clean-up.
Jul 24, 2023
Arrived 8:20pm, but office & pool were already closed. No swimming for the kids & no campfire since couldn't buy fire wood. Sign on door said they needed their rest so they could serve guests. Thought kids could swim in the morning, but pool doesn't open until noon & unless temp is above 72 degrees. Checkout is 11am, so we didn't use anything. Tried to checkout at 10:44am, but office was closed.

Super helpful owners. Quiet, clean, well lite and just nice people. Will definitely stay again.

The spaces behind the KOA office are not what we expected. It felt more like a place to store our rv for 2 nights. So that's what we did.
Jul 22, 2023
We stayed at the KOA for a week in mid-June 2023 and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The owners and employees are friendly and helpful, toilets and showers are clean and kept that way, and the grounds were lush and quiet, despite the campground's proximity to I-90. We were using the Mayo medical facilities in Rochester, that can be easily reached from the campground.
