I would have given this campground a 5 star rating for sure if it was not for the gnats! They are everywhere and they bite worse than a mosquito. I welted up all over the place. I talked to one of the owners and she said that there was some kind of spray that a local store sells. Oh, yeah... More

The drive from here to Galena is half the fun on Stagecoach! As for the campground, it's a little close to the road, but that's the only negative thing I can say. The store is open late and they deliver firewood to your site (buy in bulk packages to get a discount). They take you to your site which I... More

Love this place. They always treat us well. We have gone camping here for several years. Our family loves it. The trampoline pillow is a big hit!! The pool and restrooms are well maintained. The owner is very nice - we always have a great time staying here.

We camp almost every weekend, and this is one of our favorite campgrounds!! We camp here often with several friends and family. The owners Joe and Diane Long are wonderful and very accommodating! This campground is very clean, very kid friendly, and has a nice, clean shower house! One of the best shower houses of any campground we have stayed... More

We have stayed in the Kamping Kabins twice there now. This past summer we went in July and there were little flies/gnats everywhere! Isn't there some what to spray the campgrounds for those? I went out very early one morning to walk our dogs, but had to come back to the cabin because I could not find a single place... More

If you plan to tent camp here be sure to call their direct line to reserve a site. Not all of the tent sites have sand platforms like they advertise. Also, the sites are very close together unless you are put in a site next to the office which is basically a field with several fire pits. It's really what... More

Although the owner/managers are incredibly attentive, and the property is extremely well maintained, the comment by one reviewer about the sites being too narrow is unfortunately very true. In many of the larger unit sites the sewer pipe is right next to the picnic table area. Mostly that's just unsightly and feels gross to have it so close, there isn't... More

It is a quiet, flower-landscaped campground with both wooded and grassy areas surrounded by farm fields The staff is friendly and helpful. The park has the usual KOA facilities (heated pool w/slide, WiFi, shower/restrooms, laundry, camp supply store, camping cabins, pool,... More

I will never stay here again!! I rented the new breckenridge cabin and the family was sitting around the fire talking (not being loud) and were told by the occupants of O12 that we were being to loud and it's quite time. The next night the same thing happened. I have never had this happen at any other KOA site.... More

This is are 2nd time at this campground. The time before was in the fall and we just were there for Father's Day Weekend. All I can say is I love this place. When you pull up it's clean, there are flower beds all over. The workers including the owners are so friendly. Joe is the husband of the couple... More
