All went very well . The fact the area has had a lot of rain and the campsite #79 was awesome. The grass area was a little soggy but the parking site was hard as rock lol . Thanks for a great stay at another K O A .

Disappointing. Lots of mosquitoes. There was a big drunken fight at the park. Did not see any security or surveillance. Bathrooms were clean.

With all the rain this year we have had way too many Mosquitoes. We do live on the Park, we do answer the Phone all the time. Any problems can be solved at anytime of the day or night. Don't ever worry about telling us at night. We would have liked to know.

We have stayed at the Rochester/Marion KOA many times over the past several years to attend to appointments at the Mayo Clinic. Barb and Roger have been great hosts and accommodating when we have needed to extend our stays. They also are pet people.

This was our first campground on our two week trip and we had a great stay. Barb was very helpful and we would definitely stay there again.

Campground is pretty but NOT big rig friendly. Narrow roads lined with boulders which could cause severe damage to a big rig, trees near required turns, 1 with low branches scraped my roof near the exit. Only one trash dumpster across a road near the office quite a walk from the campsite I was in with apparently no routine trash collection from the sites. This is the worst KOA I’ve been in.

Water pressure was low, shower heads in the showers need to be replaced, propane was over-priced. Would not allow a local supplier onto the property in order for us to replenish our onboard propane tank with reasonably priced LP. It was cold and we needed the LP for our furnace. Campsites were close together. Some campers had more than one personal vehicle parked at their site.

Other Propane vendors are not allowed in the campground since we sell it here and have the insurance.

We really liked it here nice and quiet. Stores are close by and best of all a Sams Club near by. Loved the robins chirping in the morning. We definitely will come back here. Tv channels come in good and Verizon wireless works great. The KOA WiFi was fast also. Great place and the owners work hard here.

Did not give five stars only because Barb (owner?) was not very friendly when we first walked in the door (she was complaining that when we registered online we stated our equipment was a total of 45 ft, when we simply misunderstood & thought it wanted the total of motorhome & tow vehicle) Shower heads need to be cleaned or replaced; poor water pressure. Other than that, our stay was fine.

We had a very good stay staff was very kind and helpful we are looking forward to staying there again.

We were in the area for appointments Mayo Clinic. Our stay at the KOA couldn't have been better. They were so accommodating and mindful of our needs that we will definitely recommend this option to others.

I read the reviews about the campground after my stay and agreed with all the negative ones that were submitted. Very narrow roadways and large rigs with long tow vehicles will struggle for maneuver room. The staff was not real friendly so I never asked for anything. Payed for four nights left after 3. Will chose another campground next time we visit the Mayo Clinic.

Bathrooms were across the street and the hook ups were too far apart

The Phillips could not have been nicer to us. They were very flexible. Only 10 minutes from Mayo Clinic!! We will definitely stay here again.

Short stay. Nice clean campground. Helpful hosts.

One night on a trip and it was very convenient to highway yet quiet. Bathrooms at KOA’s are always clean. Thanks.

The time at the Rochester/Marion KOA was awesome! This was my 2nd time there. Love the staff and the campground. The log cabin was truly an experience to have! Love it!

Honestly we didn’t interact with the staff beyond the check in. We were in Rochester to visit family. We only slept in the RV. But the park was extremely clean and well kept. If we come back to Rochester we would definitely stay here.

Clean and organized, clean bathrooms and quiet time strictly enforced.. Great place to stop or stay a while like us when visiting the clinic
