As I am getting older, I have taken step up from tent camping to staying in a cabin - less gear to bring, not sleeping on the ground, heat if needed and walls to protect from the wildlife. Heeded other reviewers comments and brought sleeping pads for the beds. We didn't see any bears but did have a persistent racoon... More

Columbus Day weekend is one of the busiest weekends of the year for us. On Sunday when you came in we are at around 50% occupancy. Housekeeping works around the clock on busy weekend to ensure a clean, safe environment for everyone. It can be tough for them to maintain the restrooms after they go home at 10 pm. Sleeping...

I must first say that we have coming here for a number of years.

Thanks for your review Chris. We are a large camping resort and as you indicated the campers keep getting larger and the sites simply do not. With larger campers it is always a good idea to keep a list of preferred sites and, if available, we will book you into one of the specific sites you would like. We do... More

We stayed with our 2 youngest children (2 and 4) in a regular cabin (no bathroom) and used the bath house. It was pretty much as expected since we have been coming here for as long as they have been (since they were a KOA). I call these kind of accommodations "light camping" haha. Everything was ok except the bears.... More
