We stay at a different KOA each year. This one was by far the worst. Open dumpsters, dusty roads, and clueless staff. Can't do anything about the location (it's surrouded by farm and industry--Nitrate warnings posted for the water) But the staff doesn't seem to have a clue about managing activities. It was sold out Fri and Sat for a charity weekend. At the pancake breakfast, TWO PEOPLE were serving, campers walking away in disgust. Ice cream social? Again 2 elderly people trying to scoop through rock solid tubs of ice cream. To top things off, staff parked their golf carts in the prime seating area of the musical performance, while their guests either had to stand or sit on fallen logs. I don't know what possessed them to do this: entitlement? arrogance? Dozens of folding chairs were never put out.
Our cabin was nice, new, with great AC.
