4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2014

We enjoyed our stay at the Gaylord KOA and found it to be better than most private campgrounds: large treed sites, attractive and well maintained grounds, good dog park, clean washrooms, friendly service, working cable and WiFi, pool and other perks. We definitely recommend it if you are in the area.

He's RUDE, bossy, pushy, disrespectful to me and my husband ..When I asked about using the HANDICAP shower stall he looked at me as to judge if I wasnt disabled enough to use it. The woman was quite... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We do have certain rules and regulations in place to help all of our campers have an enjoyable stay during their time with us.

We stayed here for the weekend of July 4th. Its a very nice campground and the employees were very nice. We happened to be one of the obnoxious "check in at 11:30pm" people, but the owners came out and gave us our paperwork and said we could just check in tomorrow morning. The man also showed us exactly where our... More

Clean, spacious, wonderful owners, decent price, recently renovated facilities makes this one of the better campsites we have stayed in lately. Used to have less than sterling reputation but these owners have changed all that making it one of the nicer stops in.the Gaylord, Mi area, we'll worth the trip! A place we would recommend and return too.

Nice area, park is clean....but your going to pay for it big time. $43 a night, no club discounts accepted, unless you want to spend $26 more to save 10%, WoW. Laundry...$ extra. Fire wood (have to buy theirs) Want guest's to visit....$3 a person to come in. No one is very friendly, especially the park management, like camping at... More

Hello Dianna, thanks for taking the time to leave your honest feedback about our campground. We wanted to take this opportunity to address some of your concerns. We do only accept one discount card but that is primarily to ensure our campers can earn loyalty points faster than spreading rewards out across several programs. Our VKR Reward Program is good...

Love the campgound just wish there was less sand/dirt and more grass or pavement. I sweep a hundred times in a weekend! The campground is clean and there is always lots to do, like mini putt or ice cream socials, swimming and playing in the playgrounds!

Great campground close to Alpenfest activities in Gaylord. Pool was nice and showers were clean and warm. Was great to have satelite TV and wifi at our campsite. Check in was quick and easy and the people working the desk were friendly and very helpful. Lot of things for kids to do and pets too.

This Koa is not for groups to have family reunions. The owner is an idiot. I would not stay at this park it it was for free. The undercover Boss should have visited this Campground. The owners before the current owners were great. I have such a bad visit at this KOA that would not even renew my KOA card.... More

They were very helpful and accommodated the changes we made to the length of our stay. We had a group of 12 and three sites (2 tents and 1 cabin) and we were all right next to each other! The pool was great for cooling off. The putt-putt was not so nice looking. The kids loved the rental trikes.
