“Great Customer Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

Great customer service! Clean room. Very near to meeting center. Many restaurants nearby. Attempted to offer a variety of breakfast items on their continental breakfast bar! Always had fresher baked cookies at night!

Convenient to all that Bowling Green has to offer. This quiet campground is clean and has many extras to offer. A great camp K-9 was my dogs favorite spot! Thursday night was Blue Grass night, what fun that was!!

Everyone loves our Bluegrass night and we are so glad you did as well. Our huge pet playground is a favorite among owners and their four-legged friends so we always make sure it is in the best condition possible. Hope you'll come see us again soon!

It's everything that I would except at a KOA. Clean, friendly and easy to find. I was pleasantly surprised that it was around a nice neighborhood; and that you could not hear any road noise from a highway.

We rented a cabin with a bathroom, fire ring, picnic table, and a loft for 2 nights... The boys loved the loft, and we appreciated the mix of camping with the normal creature comforts...We brought our own linens (as instructed), pillows were provided for the bed.

Sleeping - One of the boys brought a cot, the other brought an inflatable mattress...They put these in the loft, and were quite satisfied... If you need to, you can rent inflatable mattresses from the office, but I can't comment on those because we did not choose that option... My husband slept on the futon in the livingroom...He said that it wasn't very comfortable for him, but he is 6'2 and weighs 280 pounds, so a smaller person might have a better experience...I slept on the bed, in the separate bedroom with my youngest son...We slept just fine.

Cooking - Some pots and pans are provided... In our cabin, someone had burned something in the stainless steel skillet (which I was able to scrub out), and also in a couple of porcelain coated pans (which I could not scrub out, no matter how hard I tried, so I gave up)...We used the skillet, and our own cookware/dinnerware, and did pretty well... The cooktop is one of those solid, flat black types with covered burners...Personally, I think they look great, but they aren't very practical for cooking...You have to be very careful not to mar them, and they are not easy to keep clean...We only used one front burner, and we were very careful, so we had no problems... We used the microwave and refrigerator to meet most of our food needs.

We brought duraflame firelogs for the campfire, and that worked well... I read that you can buy firewood at the campground, but we didn't do that... We did make use of the laundry facilities, they are limited, but very convenient.

Overall, we had a great time...The location is perfect with Basil Griffin Park right across the street...It's nice and shady...Our spot was quiet and serene... Check-in and check-out was quick and easy.

If you plan to rent one of these cabins, I would suggest that you bring cookware/dinnerware in addition to your linens, and if you go during a time of year that it might get chilly at night, you should think about bringing an electric space heater... The A/C worked fine during the daytime, but when the temperature dropped at night, we were glad that we packed extra blankets that we could pile on.

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave an honest review here on TripAdvisor as well as for posting numerous pictures of our campground. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We'll look into providing updated cookware and dishes for the cabins that need them replaced and we'll also look into adding space heaters for chilly nights. We want our guests to have a wonderful experience and reading reviews like yours really help us do that. Hope to see you again!

We rented a cabin for a 3 day weekend. From the moment we pulled up we knew this was not going to be fun. The place is ruined down, small, bath houses were in need of work, the cabin had spider webs under the beds plus old food so we knew they had not been cleaned properly and the icing on the cake was what they called a walking trail. It was a small path. It was so bad we left after just one night. The one plus was that the people who worked here were all very friendly.

We appreciate your honest feedback and apologize that your recent stay with us was not as great as it should have been. We work hard to ensure that all of our cabins are cleaned thoroughly including under the beds so there should have been no reason for the scenario you described. That being said, we are not perfect and once in awhile our staff misses something. Moving forward we'll remind them to check under beds after every stay to avoid this happening again. We are also in the process of remodeling our bathrooms so we hope you'll give us another chance.

Just spent one night here at the Bowling Green KOA. Check in was nice and both ladies were very nice. The place looked really beautiful though. Love that there is a fishing lake. There were also some swings set up in different places. If it hadn't been 32 degrees outside there would have been plenty to do!!

We are so sorry the weather didn't cooperate with your visit but really appreciate your honest feedback and the kind words about our campground. The fishing lake is one of the places our families love to gather and spend time with each other while others prefer to relax on those swings and take in the beautiful views. Please come back and see us when its warmer!

We arrived at the Bowling Green KOA, after a quick check in, we were handed a map and fresh baked cookies. The grounds were nicely decorated for Fall and were maintained nicely. We had a shady patio site complete with wrought iron table, chairs, a bench and grill. It was all very nice. This was just an overnight stay but we would stay here again.

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review.. We can't wait to see you again. We have quite a few trees all over the campground that decorate us nicely during the fall season. Our patio sites are one of the most popular for overnights as well as longer stays and we are glad you loved it. Hope the fresh baked cookies were delicious!
