“Friendly and clean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2014 via mobile

We stayed for a family reunion where we camped in our trailer and the rest were in cabins. The cabins were clean and well layed out. We used the pavilion for a family meal. The kids enjoyed the playground. The store had many items in it and the staff was very helpful. We really enjoyed the water park also. This park will be very nice in another year or two when the grass and trees mature. Would definitely go back.

Stayed July 2013

This KOA is only a little more than a year old, but they know where they want to be. As others have said trees and grass needs to mature, but its a very spacious park with 9 cabins, 2 clean shower houses, the lake, 2 party pavilions, dog park and convenience store with gas and diesel. Very close to town with all the amenities you could ask for. The Manager and staff are very friendly and helpful. Great Place to stay whether it be for 1 night or an extended stay.

It is a new Koa brith lots of space, cabin and a beach that you can swim across to an island. Bathrooms very clean. Trees and grass need to mature. Many sites with patio and chairs.
Would be good for family reunion with a big area to enjoy the family. dog park need more work.

Room Tip: Most cabins face the water

We stopped here for just one night on our way from the Twin Cities to St. Louis. Bathrooms were clean and the sites were spacious. We did not have enough time to use any of the amenities, but would happily stay again.

My family stayed here for 1 night in our motorhome with 2 dogs. It is across the road from a large waterpark. The grounds are beautiful even though the park is fairly new. The man made beach on the small lake was very nice and the lake water was warm. We taught both our dogs to swim there. There is a small island in the middle of the lake which you can walk to. The dog parks were fenced in with dog agility equipment and were clean. There was plenty of open space to exercise your dogs. The store was well stocked. The staff was friendly. My dogs would definitely stay here again.

We were a little disappointed when we first arrived. Our cabin, reserved two weeks prior, had not been cleaned yet. But the very friendly staff offered us free refreshments while we waited for them to find another cabin that was comparable. The cabin was very clean and the whole family of 6 was happy with the layout. The beach at the tiny lake is a little rough right now. But it looks like it could be really great in a year or two. We still walked through the 2-3 foot water to the little island, and the kids got a kick out of that. The campground is close to loads of shopping and dining, making it easy to run out when needed. We enjoyed building a fire right outside our cabin and roasting marshmallows, though the hum of the backhoes working on the neighboring sites made it difficult to have any intimate conversation. And we played at the small but fun themed playground, which was perfect for our 4 and 8 year olds. Overall a fun stay.
