I am a little embarrassed to admit that we only went camping once this year. The trip that we did take was done with last minute planning. For my daughters birthday she wanted to go camping. We had rain checks for Whales Tail and wanted to do Santa's Village. When planning a camping trip in August it can be hard to find available sites that do not cost a lot of money. Since it was my daughters birthday weekend she requested a campground with a pool and some activities. After much looking we ended up booking a couple nights at the KOA Campground in Lincoln/Woodstock. I am not going to lie I was a little hesitant to stay here. I do not why, but I had in my mind that the KOA's were not the nicest campgrounds and had a lot of people who partied.
Well I have to say I was more than pleasantly surprised and I am regretful of the thoughts I had. From the moment we arrived the staff was very nice and helpful whenever needed. The grounds were very clean. The campsites were a little close together where we stayed, but there are other sites that gave you a little more privacy. My favorite part was they had staff driving around in golf carts to make sure everyone was quiet at quiet hours. Despite the campground being very full, it was very relaxing. The first night we were there we sat in front of the fire watching shoot starts above us. We had a perfect few of the night sky.
This was a great family campground with plenty of activities to keep everyone entertained from a pool, large bounce mat, playground, basketball court, mini golf, fishing pond, walking paths, various lawn games and a general store with many items and homemade pizza which smelled very good. On the weekends they have various activities and a ride on a older fire engine.
The was also a great area to be in as we were close to Lincoln and Whales Tail to use our Rain Check and we were only about an hour away from Santa's Village. Just down the road from the campground was a really cool swimming hole with a water fall and crystal clear mountain water.
As I am writing this post I realize we must have had a great time because the only two pictures I have from camping are the ones my daughter took with my phone. When planning our next camping trip I will absolutely consider either this KOA or other KOA's.
