Campground Reviews

Mar 11, 2020
Multiple restrooms were closed for remodeling which forced members of our family (staying in log cabins) to use our bathroom. It was poor planning to have so many non-bathroom units sharing one common shower/restroom facility. These closures were not disclosed when reservations were made.

We loved staying in the camping cabins. Even though it was raining most of the weekend, we got some campfires going. THe kids had a blast riding their bikes all around and the playground and jumpy pillow were a big hit!

We have stayed here before and loved it. my daughter wanted to camp for her birthday and this was the perfect place. So much for my kids to do. We have already started planning our next trip.

KOA was great. Roads to get there were a little rough, but that's a county issue.

The camping cabin was warm ! What a luxury to not be cold at night. Thank you. The bathrooms were clean and nearby too.

I had tent and was traveling by bicycle and it started to rain and a staff member asked if I would like to move into a cabin at no extra cost. That was very generous of him and I was able to get bike out of the. Very appreciated his kind jester.

This was my second stay here and as before it is super clean and friendly. The staff are all friendly and helpful. I happened to be staying while the trees were being trimmed which made for a bit of daytime noise but I was warned about it at registration and it didn’t interfere with anything I wanted to do. The pool and hot tub are the best I have seen and the sites are not crowded at all.

The majority of restrooms were closed as repairs were being done which caused a lot of loud construction noises.

Nice big park. Does anyone actually read these comments? If so here are a couple - we travel with a couple of well mannered dogs and always carry poop bags. We were put in #48. A couple of grass areas close by but no bags anywhere in site and no fenced dog area. I had to pick up others poop, but there are two fenced dog spaced solely for the two sites across from us .. not good.

It was nice, kid friendly, clean and nice pool. I could see that in the busy season it would be probably way too crowded for my taste, they really pack you in there. Also the arcade is open for the kids but most of the games dont work and all they have is a sign saying they arent responsible for the games. With everything so well taken care of you would think they would put more effort into it.

We love this KOA and stay at least three times a year. We always stay in the deluxe cabins which are pretty expensive. This stay we were disappointed, first our heater didn’t work and we had two very young children with us, they brought us a little heater, then our cabin was infested with flies, and I mean infested, hundreds of them, maintenance can and vacuumed and put fly strips but there wer

Stayed here 5 nights and really enjoyed it, very nicely landscaped, LOTS of things to do inside the park, and outside, the pool area was the best I have seen at a KOA, only suggestion I have is to add an ATM in the store, as I needed extra change for the laundry and its TACKY to have a sign saying $5 min purchase for cc, I know you have cc fees, but that's part of having a business, eat the cost.

It was nice. I found it expensive compared to some KOA campgrounds. No cell service and poor internet.

This place was awesome, kid and dog friendly. Really close to a beautiful beach with a lot of sand dollars. I highly recommend this KOA.

One of our Favorite KOA’s! Great staff, so helpful and friendly! Lots of things for the kiddos to do. Wonderful deluxe cabins, the kids enjoyed the lofts. Campfires every night in our own fire pits, which make our KOA adventure complete! Great place to UNPLUG, and reconnect to make wonderful family memories! Thank you KOA!

Nice campground. We stayed in a site that backed up to the nature area so had no one behind us.. Good amount of room on each side also . Although we don't have kids now this would be a great park for them as there was a nice large pool and multiple play areas as well as a train running around the park for them to ride on.

Love all the upgrades from last time. It’s been about 4 years since we’ve been here. Definitely coming back this summer.

Our new addition to the family,Buddy, loves the dog park area and just having our dog welcomed was great for us as new dog family. Thank you

Had another pleasant stay at this KOA. Campsites were fairly well maintained. Staff was fantastic and accommodating. Bathrooms were closed on the south end of the RV Park. A trailer labeled showers was set up. I didn't find out til the last day it had toilets as well. lots of construction debris behind sites 69 thru 76. Plus a wastewater biological filter was way to close to sites.

We were upgraded to a spot with a patio that overlooked the pool. It was nice of them to do this, but we had requested a spot that backs up to the preserve as it is much quieter. We did realize we were in the wrong spot until we walked around. It would have been nice if they had asked us if we wanted another spot. There we lots of families and lots for the kids to do, if we had them.

The tree at the site needed to be trimmed back. Couldn’t open the awning

Everything was super clean and well maintained. Loved having power and water right on the sight. The bathrooms and showers were really clean and functional too. Loved the pool and hot tub as an added bonus.
