this is a great KOA park. Staff is super friendly, park is nice size, sites are nice size, not super level, but spaced out nicely. Dog park is very cool, even if I can't get my dog to jump through the hoop ha! Pool is really nice, I really like how they space rigs out - every other space, not packing everyone in side by side until it is necessary. We really like it here and will be back.

Arrived and the pool was broken, Manager promised it would be fixed the next day, when we woke up... it was not. Charged extra for Deluxe site, supposed to be great wifi... it was not. Jumping pillow boiling hot, burnt my childs feet, just a big let down.. For the price it is a major rip off, I would seriously consider looking at other places... Staff were friendly though.

I apologize for the inconvenience caused you during your stay because our pool was down. We take the health and safety of our guests seriously. At great expense to us and inconvenience to our customers, we completely emptied, cleaned and sanitized our pool for their safety. We then refilled it and had it up and operational early the next afternoon. There is a reason that guests are asked to shower before entering…to prevent this from having to be done. We do hope you give us another try in the future.

Out of the hundreds of sites at the Branson KOA, there are only four (yes, FOUR) for tents. These four tent sites are shoved at the very back corner at the bottom of a hill, next to a very steep and rather dangerous dropoff. It is a loooong walk up a steep hill to get to a bathroom, and several times longer to get to all the nice amenities touted in the ads. The sites were so small, it was clear that our tent was not going to fit. We were given no choice but to continue to find a place to stay in Branson, which was not an easy thing to do for a large family on a Friday night. Essentially, this particular KOA left our family stranded.

As a child, my family was able to travel all over the country, much due to the lovely tent accomodations provided by KOA campgrounds. I had hoped to be able to pass this enjoyment on to my children, but it appears this is a thing of the past. If this is a sign of what KOA has become, the have lost a customer.

Most of our tent campers enjoy our covered tent area. The Branson KOA is a large campground and not every site will be close to all activities and services we offer. There is a new ADA family bathroom within feet of the tent area. We are sorry you didn't seek information from one of our many employees, all of which wear bright yellow shirts. We offer a free pancake breakfast every morning which one of our managers is found talking to our guests to insure our customers have an opportunity to share their comments and get information. Our campground doesn't have many tent sites but we seldom have need for more. Every campground has an individual personality, some offer more woodsy primitive tent areas. We take pride in the fact we are the highest rated campground in Missouri and our campers rate us one of the top in the KOA system.

Rarely do you find a gym at a campsite so I was thrilled to have one at this campground. Nice paved roads for walking but heat was so bad you couldn't be outside for long.
Pro:
VERY clean
nice people
free all you can eat pancakes in the morning along with other food you can buy.
pretty area
nice dog potty area
close to Branson's main strip

Cons:
Not a lot of shade but not horrible.

Will come back to this campground again!

Room Tip: The nicer patio sties seemed to have the best shade.

Made reservations online. When we arrived everything was exactly as what we reserved. We arrived late & checked in the next morning. The check in host were some of the nicest, helpful, & friendliest of any place we've stayed. We been RV'ing for 35 years. We always enjoy this KOA. MANY improvements have been made by the new owners.

This was our third trip to Branson (third stay at the Branson KOA) and it will be the LAST. My wife and I were on vacation during our stay here and we were awakened by people playing games outside our trailer at 7 AM in the morning. Also, the office staff has become UNFRIENDLY!

We stayed for four nights in a pull behind trailer. We stayed in site 101 and that row is very shaded, which we appreciated in the 100 degree heat! That is a great area to stay and the sites are pull through. We had large 5th wheel campers near us and no one had a bit of problem getting into the sites, even though they are close together. The place is immaculate and the workers are constantly cleaning the bathrooms and the laundry facility (they have two and are air conditioned. During the summer they have free pancakes every day and they served in a very large (again, air conditioned) conference center. They also have other breakfast items that you can purchase. The pool is 9' deep and the water was crystal clear. You can't hear any rode noise, etc from the campground and it is somewhat secluded, even though it is only about a mile south of Highway 76, which is the main drag. The website is www.bransonkoa.com and they have a coupon if you have never stayed there before, and you get a free night! The workers were also very nice and helpful. Will go back there again and won't even consider another campground.
