Karen and her husband are doing a great job with this KOA. Some small but very innovative and helpful things, like the café which delivers small meals to your RV so when you arrive tired and hook=up and level you do not have to face cooking that first night. Karen also runs a hair salon on site--got a convenient haircut... More

Thank you very much for a great time. We stayed there while we were on our way to the AMA Amateur Nationals for my son to race. He had a great time and made a lot of memories at the fishing pond. We enjoyed the friendly staff and look forward to being back again.

A good place to spend the evening & open all year. Close and easy to get to from the interstate. Friendly, helpful staff with well equipped facilities and clean, modern restrooms. You can even get your hair cut during your stay by the owner!

they need to haul in lots of gravel. the place was a mud pit. I realize it was March 2015, but adding gravel in the fall would have done wonders. Being pro-active, gravel would be added last fall. Also several campers were permanent, year around, & their camp sites were trashy.

I arrived late and everything was ready at late registration. Cabin was clean. Bathroom facilities were clean. The area was quite and easy to find. Good experience, would definitely recommend and would stay here again.

Showers and bathroom facilities far from sites that were further away from the office. Accommodating staff. Bathroom facilities for women not cleaned. More rustic, less amenities than some KOA's. Fair.

I enjoyed my stay. However, Wish I had missed the rain on both stays. The walk from my site to your facilities was long for my handicapped family member. I also wished I had a longer cable to access your cable TV service.

We stayed in the deluxe cabin which was actually a mobile home. It was clean, updated, and very comfortable for the seven of us. The full kitchen came equipped with utensils, pots, pans, coffee maker, etc. Our only suggestion is that if you need a more comfortable mattress, bring a memory foam topper. The plastic mattresses are not very comfortable,... More

The location was perfect for the direction we were traveling and where we wanted to stop. The campground, site, shower/bathrooms were spotless and we thoroughly enjoyed the pool. We thought it was one of the best KOAs we stayed at on our vacation.
