I've just spent two days camping here and I'm not impressed, some things annoying others dangerous....
The original pitch I'm offered is full of tree roots and definitely not made for tents, plus it's right next to the entrance road, which if it was the last one fair enough, but it wasn't and I found a far better one elsewhere on the site.
You have to pay for a hit and miss WiFi service, which is through an outsourced company .... haven't paid for WiFi on any other KOA site.
But most dangerous was the out of date cold meat I bought, out of date by 10 days in fact!! I took it back to the reception/shop and the other pack there was also 10 days out of date ... this in a place with lots of children. I ended up with a pretty upset stomach, but it could have been far more serious if a child had eaten any. ... effective stock rotation and control are the basics in retail. When this is pointed out to the manager by the member of staff, they appeared to be unconcerned and just authorised a refund on the meat I'd bought. They didn't even offer an apology ..... at least the member of staff did.
The ritual chanting at odd times of the day from a religious group also got to be pretty annoying as well.
On a positive note it was dry, the beer was cheap and the logs burnt well.
