Bray Park, Madison Lake, Minnesota

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

The hosts/owners were very friendly and helpful. The sites are not extremely large, but there is a huge open area for yard games and kids to play. The swim beach was a huge hit with the kids. There are also 2 large playgrounds. I have stayed here before and would definitely stay here again. We camped at Bray Park in a Travel Trailer.

Hiking and fishing. There is a nice boat landing, or you could walk/drive down to the fishing pier 1/2 mile away.

Kiesler's Campground & RV Resort, Waseca, Minnesota

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice clean park. I have stayed there several times and the kids enjoy the pool very much. I will visit again. The sites were fairly close together, but they were nice and shaded. There are a couple of very large playgrounds, shuffle board, horseshoes, mini-golf and basketball to keep everyone entertained. There is also a nice bike/walking trail that goes around the lake. You do have to cross the highway to get to the lake, but it is well worth it. We camped at Kiesler's Campground & RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Mankato is fairly close if you would like to do some shopping. Owatonna is close if you would like to visit Cabelas.

Rochester / Marion KOA, Rochester, Minnesota

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $62.00
Overall Rating:

Worst camping experience ever.

1. The owners were very rude and not approachable.

2. They hounded people constantly about driving on the grass (while driving on the grass himself with his golf cart).

3. Wood was for sale in the office for $7 a bundle (small bundles of construction lumber). We were yelled at for bringing in our own (DNR certified) wood.

4. Pool is only open from noon until 9 pm. It also must be at least 72° for the pool to open. When we arrived at the park the kids wanted to go to the pool, but were denied because it was only 70°. Swim diapers are not allowed for infants in the pool. Children must be fully toilet trained to enter the pool.

5. The sewer hook-ups are all the way at the front of the pad, but you need to back the trailer in all the way to fit on the pad. You need a 30-40' hose to reach on most trailers.

6. Campground is very close to the highway and there was a lot of road noise.

7. Price was too high for the amenities.

8. Office, store, bathroom, showers are across the road from the camping area. No bathrooms anywhere near the camping, pool or tents.

9. The campground was about 1/2 full on a July weekend. I understand why now that I have been there.

My biggest complaint is about the owners/hosts. When I check-in to a campground, I expect a certain level of customer service.

Luckily we had a good group of friends, so we made the best of our stay. I would NEVER stay there again. I used to think fairly highly of the KOAs, but I will not stay at one ever again. I would rather stay in a vacant alley. We camped at Rochester / Marion KOA in a Travel Trailer.
