We usually are not huge fans of KOAs because they are so overpriced in our opinion. Seriously, $40+ per night?? Anyway, we needed a place for an overnight and this was a good location for us and was right off the interstate so we went ahead and did it. The people there are very friendly and everything overall seems clean and well-maintained (which one would certainly expect at this price point). We had a shady site and they honored our request to not put us right on top of someone else which was nice. My daughter had a nice swim at the pool and enjoyed the playground. If you are going to this campground for the jumping pillow, ask first! It had been punctured some time ago and was not operational when we were there. For an overnight, not a huge deal, but if you're planning to go for a longer stay and have kids make sure you ask.
Overall we are not going to go out of our way to go back there, but I'd the circumstances were right we might do another overnight.
