“Could have been an average KOA, but utility problems ruined it for us.”

Overall Rating

This is a nice looking in-town KOA, with most sites a little close together, but the trees and landscaping make it feel pretty nice. The "dog park" was disappointing: a tiny, 10 foot by 10 foot chain link fenced area. We did find a large empty field across the street that we used for dog walks. We tried the WiFi but found it to be unusable, but our AT&T and Verizon both worked well. Our site was unusually wide, but poorly laid out, with the electric and water hookup in the far back-right corner, and the sewer literally 60 feet away in the front-left. There was no way to position our motorhome to reach all the utilities, even parked diagonally across the site. The campground said many sites have utilities in strange places so they have 50-amp extension cables they loan to guests, but they were all loaned out already. They instead loaned us a 30-amp extension cable, and a water hose since our two 25-foot hoses combined were not long enough to reach the spigot. We asked to be moved but were told no other sites were available. I asked if we could be charged for a 30-amp site instead of the 50-amp site we reserved, since there was no way for us to access the 50-amp connection but the office said no. Once we were plugged in, our Progressive EMS kept shutting down power to our rig due to low voltage (below 104 volts). A camp host tested the pedestal, saw low voltage, but said there was nothing he could do. Another camp host we spoke with later said there have been other electrical problems and the system will be upgraded this summer. The next morning we asked to be moved, as there was an empty site 2 sites down (as suggested by a camp host) but were told all sites are already reserved. No one ever checked into that site during our stay. The person in the office didn't seem very interested in helping find a solution for us. We made it through our two night stay, using as little electricity as possible, and left frustrated. We will not return.
