Shorter, but nice stay. The staff was helpful in making our stay pleasant; even offering to make a call for us as we made connections in the area:) Quiet campground and very clean. Glad we checked it out!

Not very welcoming or friendly. Had to ask them to weed wack the weeds about a foot high all around the picnic table. Only bathrooms are across the busy road next to the office. Not in the campground area.

Customer service skills lacking. Pool says open at noon 1230 still not open. Owner yelling at her grandkid. Store locked when we went to check out.

This was a fun weekend getaway. Close to lots of great biking, hiking, and disc golf. We had a really good time!

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!

Very friendly owners! Nice and peaceful stay. We will definitely be staying here again!

Campsite was OK for a one night stay. It's pretty compact with the sites being pretty close to each other. The bathrooms, shower, laundry, etc. is all across the street so a bit of a hassle. The owners were very friendly and everything was very clean.

The cabin was very nice and mostly clean. Nice neighbors. Wood was low quality. Pool was open limited hours and was very cold. Did not spend much time the pool as a result, which was disappointing. The female on staff working the front desk was kind. However, the male was very crabby and really not nice when he had interactions with him.

Owner needs to be more gentle and nice.

We hadn't stayed at a KOA campground before and we enjoyed it very much. The hosts were nice and friendly. The cabin and bathrooms were clean. The campsite had everything needed for an enjoyable stay. We had a fun girls weekend! Thank you KOA

We stayed in a cabin and it was immaculate. The bathroom/shower house and laundry area were too. If we ever go through the area again we will stay here.

Campground was nice, if you were in a camper or motorhome. The cabins were very close to each other and the fire ring was next to the road. Had a bad experience with host. At check in, first question was "do you have firewood in your vehicle". Also questioned us about visitors when they were coming and if they were staying all day.She made us feel very uncomfortable... Our first time at a KOA.

Great place to stay. Stayed in one of the cabins and it was really nice.

Friendly owners. Clean. My only draw back was the showers and Bathrooms were across a blacktop roadway. Other than that all was good.

Everything was fine and clean. Just a very basic campground, compared to other KOAs we've stayed at

The owner doesn't seem real nice. She tries hard but comes off not friendly. We stopped here 8 years ago and things haven't changed. She is the same. We bought a bundle of wood for $7.00 and got a bundle of kindling. So unhappy. Then we had to park behind our cabin and not in front or on the side yet 2 cabins from us parked in front. Also the bathrooms are across the street for everyone.

The saving grace was that it was clean, and the campers around us were nice. When we checked in we got a number for firewood to be delivered. They said you had to call by 8. Called at 7 while visiting friends. Came home at 9 to no wood. The next morning the guy in the office said that number went to South Dakota or something. Everyone was just rude from making the reservation on. Very disappointed

Great owners! Went above and beyond for us!

Nice setting with large trees and grass, comfortable mattress, new screen door, 2 chairs in the cabin, beautiful sinks and mirrors in the bathroom.

Little things make a difference. The bathroom sinks had timed on/off faucets that didn't allow enough time to wash your hands. Also, the actual faucet had a screen on it so that water jetted out of it - it was uncomfortable on the hands and spattered all over the place. The shower head was pointed towards you when you turned it on - not a good arrangement.

Clean. Relaxing. Friendly staff. Close to Rochester. Loved the idea of the camping cabins having a small tv with a DVD player. We had a rain day and we have little kids so it helped keep them entertained. We will return.

Always a fun family weekend! We stayed in a camper cabin and it was perfect for our family of 6!

Nice central location for a busy extended weekend. Biked the trails in Lanesboro and Rochester. Visited breweries in Rochester, Fountain and Decorah Iowa. Shopped Amish and antique stores throughout our travels and Walked through the annual "Gold Rush Days" antique and flea market show in Rochester and Oronoco.

Not as much to do with the kid's as I expected. Pool was too cold to swim in. Worker's were friendly. Enjoyed out stay, but would have liked more activities.

Had a very nice stay. Nice clean cabins and grounds.

Awesome

The staff was friendly, the park was quiet and the pool was clean. The Kabin's appear to have been neglected as ours was dusty on the door hinges, cob web by the door, ceiling fan didn't work, windows hadn't been washed in a long time. The timbers were rotting out on the ends, the lattice around the bottom of the kabin's were aging and broken.

The kids had fun in the outdoor pool (not heated, but so refreshing on hot humid days). Clean bathrooms and the store had a good selection. The only thing I did not like was you have to buy wood from them (no outside wood allowed, which I understand for pest control). The wood we got was lumber scraps for $7 a bundle. No nice logs, had to tend fire ever 5min to keep it going. Otherwise nice place.

Very nice but wish they had bathroom closer to cabins.

My husband and I have stayed here before and we love it . The owners are great and always accommodating. The bathroom/showers are nice and always clean. It has a great pool and dog park. Everything you need for a great camping experience!!! We will definitely go back again.

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