We found hosts to be gracious and welcoming. Checked in late without any problems. Very clean private showers. Train whistles did not disturb our sleep. Pool was pristine! Gelato available on weekends but we were only there on a weeknight.

Great value for a KOA and the owners & staff are the best! They helped with any issues we had and are so friendly. Free wi-fi, morning coffee and cable TV, which many other KOAs charge for. If you're looking for a campground in this area, definitely stay here!

You don't have to climb fences in in order to get to our office. First of all it is clearly marked and you can see it from the entrance as well. And yes we have a gate, so you can't pass if you are not camping here. I think it is perfectly fine to stop people climbing fences and ask... More

Owners and staff are really nice. Lots of activities for kids. Cabins are nice. Camp store is wonderful. We went during the trick or treat weekend, hay rides, pumpkin carving contest, and decorate your camp site contest.

We rented a two room cabin at the KOA for one night as a fun family outing! It was very nice and very clean and unlike some of the other reviews the staff was wonderful and very accommodating and helpful. The price was nice and there were fun things to do. We had a Glow wagon ride and played min-golf... More

This past weekend was our 4th stay at this KOA and will be our last. Our daughter is a student at Notre Dame and we found after her freshman year that it was almost impossible to get a hotel room for football weekends or any other special event weekends on campus. Hence we decided to utilize our RV for visits.... More

First of all it is a 2 night minimum stay on football weekends, which was mentioned multiple times and Mrs. Jones must have been aware of. Other than that I can try to explain it again to her nicely. Secondly everybody at check in gets a little flyer, printed on bright green paper, where we explain our safety policy in... More

The campsite was in a beautiful quiet location which I liked. We were down there for a football game. The staff monitored your every move which was very uncomfortable, but one event specifically was more disturbing than the rest. I was washing my hand with a hose, which was by their pet donkey they have (although no where near to... More

Hi I'm the lady who was embarrassed as you described it. I'm truly sorry he has used words like this. I'm with you, a simple "please stop" would have done it. I talked to him and it seemed to him you are in the process of spraying water at the animals, this is why he was upset. Again please accept... More

Loved this place. I can not say enough good things about this KOA. We stayed there for a month and besides the train nearby can't think of anything negative. The owners Thomas and Patricia were more then accommodating. From the teenagers to the owners we loved them all. So friendly and helpful. The facilities are well kept and clean. They... More

We were told that we can't laugh. The curfew is at 10 instead of 11 and we were told three times to be quiet and we are not a party place. So if you expect to have fun then don't go to this KOA. They patrolled the area at least 6 or 7 times, and slowed when they approached our... More

If your definition of fun is drinking, being loud and obnoxious, playing guitar after midnight, you are at the wrong park. We are a fun place to be not a party place. Also a little respect of your group towards your camping neighbors would be too much to ask. We don't need business like this, please tell your friends to... More

The good: We learned our lesson: always check TripAdvisor reviews before making a reservation! The bad (1): We reserved online while on a road trip, so couldn't cancel without losing our first (and only) night's fee. It was only after making this payment that we were informed there would be a $3.50 pet pet/per night additional fee. There was no... More
