We have camped on the Hayward KOA campground for 20 years. We started with a tent, and really utilzed the nice camping kitchen. Then, for many years, we rented cabins. Now, we camp with a small camper. We have seen many new owners come and go. Each one makes changes as they see fit. We meet our friends and family... More

We have stayed at the Hayward KOA almost every year for the last decade and every stay has been enjoyable. It's close to the trails and the river, yet remote enough so you feel like you really are in the northwoods camping.

We spent a weekend at this campground this summer and have never been so insulted by staff as we were here. Our kids were yelled at several times... for being kids! And the adults were berated for everything from not picking up a wrapper on the ground by our campsite - that had blown there from somewhere else, to using... More

I visited the campground in mid-August with about 20 of my family members, including children. Togetherness was our goal and we certainly got that as we occupied five campsites with campers all right next to each other. And there were lots of activities for the kids, which was great. What was not to my liking, however, was the crowdedness and... More

I went during the chocolate water slide weekend and it was awesome! My favorite part is always the jumping pillow. Whenever I go there I usually get a bunch of kids and play dodgeball on there. They also have a big playground with a basketball hoop and a nice outdoor pool. The little cabins are kinda crappy but the other... More

Let's start with the good. The campground had a lot of things for the kids. The bad, the water slide was not working. The jumping pillow was closed at the first sign of rain. Now the really bad. It is a big park and it was only about a tenth full however, they jammed every camper into one small section... More

Thank you for your feedback. It appears that you may have visited us during a time of changing weather. Our water slide is a 300’ slide and has not been closed for any reason other than storms in July. Due to the size of the slide, if there are any electrical storms in the area, we have to close it...

We stayed for 3 days during the busy 4th of July weekend in one of the Kozy Kottages. They had lots of activities for the throngs of kids in the park. My kids we particularly thrilled with the nightly outdoor movies. The showing of JAWS on July 4th was particularly genius as the story take place over the 4th of... More

Thank you for staying with us at Hayward KOA. We are glad that you had a fun time during your stay with us and we also appreciate your feedback. We apologize for the inconvenience of our satellite showers being out of service for those few very busy days. They were in their usual great working order until an issue arose... More

I took my 3 kids camping alone for the first time at this campground. We stayed in a tepee. I thought it would be fun for the kids and I wouldn't have to put up the tent. The first night it was dry and beautiful. It rained the second day and the tepee did get wet around the perimeter our... More

We've been taking the kids here for years. This year we realized how dirty it was, considering there's no grass when it rained everything had dirt and pine needles on it. 5 bucks for a bundle of wood that had 4 pieces in it. Only family friendly if you bring a lot of extra money for everything other than the... More

After reading all of the other from last year and the apparent "new management" giving poor reviews, we were a bit nervous but this campground had all of the amenities we were looking for and we wanted to give it a shot. We are glad we did and will likely make it a annual visit. First off, the Mosquitos were... More
