Nice campground, excellent customer service, excellent bathrooms. Tent sites could use some more trees or something for shade.

The staff were great and the site very clean but not a great tenting area. Wouldn't recommend for tenting but for RVs probably not a bad spot. Great showers!

I've stayed here before. On my last stay, the grass in the tent area was green and well kept. This stay, it was dry and weedy. I think more attention needs to be paid to the tent area.

stay was good till I watch three german shepard dogs not on leases get in a fight with two tiny dogs on leashes, lots of noise fromall the dogs owners yelling and owners must always have pets on a leash and not use the tent camping area as the dogs potty place, don't walk the dogs in the camp grounds but only in the dog park area I hate dog poop in tent camping area the rest good

Nice campground. Nice people. Close to lake and off the main road enough so no traffic noise from it.

We were on a long distance road trip checking out colleges for our daughter. WE had driven over 500 miles after a long day, so we were a little weary when we pulled into your camp site. We found the map with our tent site on it and a note saying that it was forecasted to be pretty windy and we were welcome to stay in cabin 6. We were elated. It was the best nights rest we had all week!! Thank you

Small tent spaces, no shade or wind breaks, dirty bathrooms, staff never checked in on sites, overall worst experience at any koa I've ever stayed at, and i have been to several

Was a very nice site but we thought we were going to get blown away. We have come to notice that most KOA do not think to much about where they are putting tenters. If they are alongside a road we seem to always be tenting along the road and having to listen to traffic all night

We were tent camping which we do frequently. The landscape was all barren and there were no shade trees. The playground was conveniently located but it really did not have much on it and was pretty depressing to be honest. The shower never got hot. I probably would not return. The customer service was good however.

nothing to do in the area. They were watering the tent area when we arrived had to go and hang out some other place while ground dried out. Very dry and rocky ground

This was my 1st stay in a KOA. When I reserved my tent spot it said water included, there was no water close. A pickup with trailer was parked in front of my tent area so I had to pack my gear. There was a family reunion and they were very loud late into the night making it hard to sleep. I did appreciate the free morning coffee, the book store and the clerk was very nice!

It's not a "bad" campground but it's not what I expect when I stay at KOA. The office staff was not very KOA either and I had to wait to get helped when I arrived as they were all visiting with one another. I did not know at first that they were all employees either as none of them were dressed in typical KOA attire.

The people at this campsite were very friendly and very helpful to make sure our stay was great, which it was. I would camp there again.

It was fine but when I first arrived maybe around 3:00 PM, I began setting up my tent in the grassy area when a maintenance guy came over and said he wanted to mow the lawn. So I had to remove my tent and wait while he mowed the lawn. (The lawn was not overgrown at all) I thought that was kind of strange.

My tent site was located next to a mosquito infested dried up ditch. No shade. Not suitable for camping at all had to leave in a hurry. My reservation was for two nights but stayed for 5 min.


At that time, all of the county was battling mosquitoes. We did our best to get rid of them, but some remained. We have more trees for the tent sites, but they are still young. The sites are not in a ditch. We excavated that area just for the tents to make a separate tent area.

Good location, right off highway. Good facicilities. Very friendly. If I was in the area again I would go back.

Sunk deep in the valley and surrounded by cool water and grassland, this quiet and peaceful KOA is truly one of my favourites. The hosts are wonderful people with ready smiles and who take the time to get to know their guests. Their hospitality goes above and beyond any kamping experience I've had. I have and will continue to recommend this site to anyone looking for a KOA experience!

the grass tent sites near the restroom had dog poop all over the place. On top of that one of the campers in the RV sites was drunk and was yelling and screaming along with lots of profanity Not real happy about the stay.
