This KOA is located right off the highway so you can easily find it from Benton! However you can hear the highway when outside, if that bothers you. There are also trains that come by every once In a while, none of that bothered us. Clean pool is near the store. Small Cafe with food inside will be delivered to... More

This was okay for one night's sleep. It is right next to the highway so I would not recommend tent camping here. Whenever we went outside you could hear the highway. Pool does not have stairs, only ladders, so if you are disabled that could be an issue. Fishing is across the road. Staff super friendly and brought us fresh... More

This KOA isn't huge but it is worth stopping. Karen checked us in and was wonderful. They have tent sights that have been build up to be flat. The store was well stocked and very reasonably priced. I bought chairs here as cheap as they sold at Walmart. Staff were friendly and it was a nice stay. There is a... More

Unfortunately we only got to stay one night here on our way through to another area. The campground was very nice. There are a lot of trees and the staff was very friendly. If we are that way again we would stay here again.

The campground was clean and quiet. Personal was friendly. As we left the campground we must have swiped a tree branch but did not think much of it until we entered the interstate. We heard a hissing noise but did not think too much of it. A few miles down the road we seen a run in the windshield and... More

Modest campground, which could use cleaning and sprucing up. Each time I'm here, the pool is closed for cleaning and/or repair. The pond across the road is nice to visit, esp. in spring and autumn. Receptionist needs to be more accurate with information re: cable, wifi.

Very clean facility, great staff, pool was nice. With the interstate right near it, it was easy to get into. Will def be back!!! We had been camping at Rend Lake, but KOA is much better. The only prob was when it rained that weekend, the water came up very close to our camper. We did get to move, but... More

Great reception. Considering that we were only going to spend one night at this KOA on our way North the staff was very helpful. It was raining on our arrival and they came out to show us which site we were at and helped us hook up our utilities.

A nice place and will have to stay again sometime. Was on a motorcycle trip to tennesse, stay in the Cobin Ky. KOA also.The folks running the campground were EXTREMELY friendly and helpful.The location was very close to a major interstate and very easy to get to. It was also close to town so any needs could be filled.

A good place to stay. I was driving a Class A motor home and this KOA was a nice place to stay. The workers are outstanding. They will do anything to make sure your stay is the best there is anywhere.
