We are big KOA cabin kind of people. We generally choose our vacations based on where a KOA is. So that being said, I was really disappointed with this KOA. I read the reviews and thought we were in the clear-- we really aren't picky people. My biggest issue was the cleanliness of the bathrooms. I've never been to a KOA with such filthy bathrooms (globs of hair in showers, muddy floors [they don't seem to be mopped consistently, so by the showers they are just muddy], gunk on the walls and toilet clogging problem). Yikes! I think it came down to-- the campground was way over crowded and they didn't increase bathroom cleaning to come up with demand. The second issue was how overcrowded the campground was-- at least they still had nice trees all around. Our cabin was great-- very modern, lots of shelving, outside patio with table and chairs and even a TV-- but no private fire pit :( We shared with 4 other cabins-- but not all the cabins were like that-- It looked like there were some less updated cabins with a little more private space. I did mention the bathroom issue and I was told the management would be alerted and so hopefully they will fix the problem.
