They added a bounce pillow and jumbo jenga this year. So along with the mini golf, shuffleboard, and other outdoor games, the kids kept busy....

we rented a deluxe cabin. It was nice and clean. it was tough with the mini-fridge, but we managed by keeping our drinks in a cooler. The central A/C was a huge comfort during our stay as the heat index hit 110 and we had our small kids with us. On the down side, cell phone reception is spotty and...

I typically am a little leery of staying at KOA's but this one we were very pleased with. I called to make a reservation for 2 days and 3 nights and spoke with Maddie. She was very helpful and made sure the site we were in was big enough for our 32'fith wheel and private which it was! It was...

We had a great weekend here! The kids loved the amenities - the jumping pad, giant jenga, giant chess, mini golf, the swimming pool. A lot of things to keep them entertained. The adults enjoyed the entertainment on Saturday night also - 2 Men and the Machine put on a nice concert! We loved the large boulders and the shade,...

It's a little bit on a back road away from town but very nice and clean we had a great shady lot. The staff were friendly. Only thing that stinks are the shop hours close at 8 pm but other than that great campground would definitely recommend it to anyone staying there.

KoA campgrounds invariably mean paying a premium but we opted to do that so we could stay a couple of days and tour the battlefields. Shoulda saved our $$. Made the reservation three months in advance and then verified it again two weeks before arriving. First - there was no pull-thru site available for my coach - even though the...
