My family of 5, including two small children under the age of 5, arrived at KOA Union Friday July 13, 2012. Upon arriving everything looked great. Lots of trees, green grasses, clean building, great play ground, etc. However, our excitement ended there. When we were taken to our camp “site” (lot 99) my family and I became extremely disappointed. All camp sites were lined up in rows, hardly any trees and very little room between campers. Lot 100 was no more than 10 feet away from out camper, their sewer was 8 feet from my children’s window, and their electrical box was 6 feet from our camper. Their sewer was leaking and the smell was awful. The fire pit was 2 feet off the gravel road. There literally was zero room for playing or sitting outside our camper comfortably. We hated it! Within two hours of being at this place we asked for our money back and left a day earlier than planned. We will never stay at this KOA again and most likely will never stay at any KOA’s in the future.
