We stayed overnight and found the KOA to be a good campground. The $49 rate (after KOA discount and tax) for the cheapest gravel site seemed a bit high though. There were also larger concrete sites, and even a site with a fenced dog area. They have a lot of amenities which we didn't use (pool, outdoor movie screen, kids play equipment, etc.). The fenced dog park was small and packed full of agility ramps, tunnels, and obstacles, so we only spent two minutes there and opted to walk our dog down the dead-end road instead, which was fine. Our site was level and was a pretty decent size for a KOA, which often have really tight sites and pack people in. Site utilities worked fine, and even the free WiFi worked quite well (always a pleasant surprise). Our AT&T and Verizon hotspots both had good signal but both were a bit on the slow side. The main downside (apart from the price) is the noise from the interstate. As far as KOAs go, this one is pretty nice. We'd return for an overnight if it's along our path, but given the price, we likely will look around if we were to stay for a longer period.

Stopped her on my way to Florida. I was going to stay at the Walmart parking lot but it was a small parking lot and very very busy. $49 was without any kind of discount the powers good Wi-Fi is good I have two bars on Verizon. The young man that checked me inward nice. I don’t typically choose Koa because of the cost. But like any other key away I’ve been to which isn’t very many it’s clean bathrooms are nice all in all this was a better choice than Walmart parking lot for sure.

Great location off the interstate, a little noisy because of that. Nice level gravel sites front to back so we didn’t unhitch. Side to side we used a block but very easy and quick to do.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. Very clean restrooms and showers.

Stayed at this KOA one night on a trip to Florida. Great location with easy access. We had a great site with a nice, wide concrete pad. Nice amenities throughout.

Missing the grand bath house KOAs are known for. Staff were really great and sites were roomy. Good location right off the highway.

We stayed one night. It is a typical KOA with good amenities, nice restrooms, dog area, laundry. However it is right on the highway and very loud. We stay at a lot of cracker barrels and Walmart’s and this was louder. Unfortunately that would stop me from staying again.

Level, full hookup sites. Some sires are gravel, some concrete. Wifi is good. Cable. Sites are close together but the way are arranged mitigates that issue.
Very well organized & maintained. Neat, clean and orderly. There is road noise inherent to it’s location near the highway but was not an issue for us.
There’s a nice walking/nature trail and things to do.
I’ve marked this as a favorite. Would stay again and recommend to others.

We stayed just one night southbound in 38' motorhome plus toad. Easy access to pull thru with lots of space. Did not have to unhook. Beautiful park! Only time for a short walk around but it seems like they thought of everything.
