This was, perhaps, the most beautiful KOA I've stayed in. Wooded on three sides, the freeway in the distance is heard, but the bird sounds in the woods cover it nicely. There is a gorgeous easy hiking loop through the trees and down to a creek, with little off shoots that I did not have time to explore. The sites are big and roomy, and staggered so you're not looking into your neighbor's windows. Ask for a spot out by the trees in the back. It seems a long distance from the pool, but it isn't if you cut straight across. AND they have the Hunk Pizza/wings service too, which is really a great value for dinner if you're lazy like me. The little store is very well stocked for a little store, and the laundry facility is very neat and clean. The pool is old but well cared for, and they have loads of games and stuff for the kiddos, with a fantastic mini-golf game set up that would be fun for families I would think. The office staff is not super friendly, but they are professional. The guy who takes you to your site, however, is friendly and helpful. He told me EXACTLY how to set my tv up, something I have not done in 2 years because I couldn't figure it out, and I stayed up way too late watching it, just because I could. There are a few neat sites with patio table set ups and swings and the such, too.
