Rented a cabin over Father's Day weekend. Kids had a great time. Pool was clean, cabin was clean, had nice little porch swing and right by the playground. Included AC which was great. Clean bathrooms and showers but showers were a little dark. Very close to main road, so convenient if you had to run to store. There is a... More

We went camping for the 4th of July weekend. It is a beautiful property, lots of trees for shade and the people who work there where extremely helpful and kind. However, there is a train track near a yeard and the trains run at all hours of the day and night. Needless to say we didn't get much sleep.

Overall, there wasn't a lot negative about this place. Great service upon arrival, even added the discount I was apparently supposed to do when booking, (hadn't read the very SMALL print on the KOA website, and the site was a fairly decent size. We used the pool every day, due to warm weather. Great location, you can be at all... More

In our 36 years of camping, we have been to many KOA's and this is by far the best we've had the pleasure of staying. The grounds are very well kept, bathrooms and laundry room spotless, and the hosts are so very welcoming and pleasant. They are very knowledgeable about the area and knew exactly where to send us for... More

This is by far the best KOA at which we've ever stayed. It was easy to get to; it was well laid out; it was well maintained; extremely clean; AND it was very secure.

We stayed for one night for a Notre Dame game. We had to pay for two nights, but it was still cheaper than a hotel for one night. The mattresses were thin, but other than that, the place was adorable. It had heat and air-conditioning. It had a little desk and light. It was very tiny, but we just sat... More

There are train tracks a block from the KOA that are very active. I was awoken several times at night because of the whistles blowing. It also seems that they have seasonals staying.

“If you don't mind a short walk to the bathroom the smaller cabins are still quite roomy and nice for families! We often have trouble getting a hotel we will all fit in since we have three kids and there was still an extra bunk in this cabin since it sleeps 6. There is a door between the rooms that locks so it is good for mom and dad to have their own space. There are lots of choices for cabins and camping sites and RV hook-ups as well.”
