A campground in transition

We only stayed at this KOA because we couldn’t find any available campsites at any other campgrounds in the area. We usually don’t consider KOA because they are generally too expensive for what we need them for but this KOA has water/electric sites for $30. Keep in mind you can’t choose which site number you get. This is a new KOA so they are still transitioning from an RV park and are sprucing up the campground to KOA standards. Do not expect anything glamorous. The improvements appear to be gradual. I feel like the main building would need to be renovated to truly makes themselves a proper KOA.

But as for the campground itself, the campsites are close together. The chalky gravel campsites and roads are raked everyday. They do roadside trash pickup throughout the day. I observed them come by twice a day. I think there are 7 individual shower rooms. The restrooms are attached to the main office building (like the showers). I mention that because the map we were given doesn’t indicate where the restrooms are but to be fair the office staff told us where they were. The showers and restrooms are alright. The campers make them gross but I see the staff cleaning everything on schedule around noon everyday. There’s a laundry room which is very clean. The washers are $2 and the dryers are $1 for 40 minutes. There’s a playground. A swimming area on the lake. There’s a trail that goes around the lake. The KOA has well stocked doggy poop bags and trashcans along the trail.

Oh! The camp store has ice cream, general food stuffs, fishing tackle and will accept packages.
