Agree with the other reviews, the staff here is A++! Very nice and accommodating! Flat, level sites; ours was dirt but they have concrete pad sites too. We stayed 1 night passing through and our pull-through fit our 45ft motorhome and the F150 we tow, and we didn't have to unhook to get out (though if the campground were full, I suspect we might have had to unhook). The playground was tired, but well cared for and it looks like they were planning to repair it (fresh materials were laid out). My kids still enjoyed it after a day of being strapped into car seats. ;) I read about nearby strawberry picking fields that are in-season April-July... if we stop here again it looks like there's one less than 20 min away! Fun! Again, can't emphasize enough how friendly and nice the owner and staff are here... That makes all the difference! Thank you for your hospitality!

Quick on off from 75. Quiet. Clean bathrooms but a bit dated. Night check in was easy. Would stay again if needed for a night. Pool was not open yet on March 19, I believe it opens may 1

These people were incredibly accommodating to us! We were cared for after hours. Bob was so wonderful helping my 85 yr old husband and myself. He helped with fuses, heat, and did some repair work on our trailer. He even helped my husband hook up Our sway bars when we got ready to leave. We appreciate KOA here, and in the other places we've stayed. They've earned their good reputation and are worth every penny of their rates. Thank you again, Bob and KOA for all you did for us!
