The road into the C/G is very dusty. The lady in office was very friendly, then she asked the older gentleman on the mower to take me to our site and all went south from there. He expected me to turn on a dime and he got all upset when I couldn't make the corner because of a fire ring. He sat in his golf cart while I moved the fire ring. After a long hard day I really don't need this treatment. If you can't treat customers better than that it is time to sell out and retire. We camped at Casey KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a great stop and a great park. We pulled in at noon and they set us up with a site for the night. They made sure we got into our site and the hook ups were working. The owners are great people and very friendly. The free pop corn for the movie night was great. There is a free fishing lake on the grounds that do not require a license to fish. The sites are level with gravel. Even with the expressway close there is very little noise from it. We will stop here again on our way through the area. We camped at Casey KOA in a Truck Camper.

Due to a reservation screw up at a park near Springfield, we ended up here for the first time since last millennium. We had a full hookup, pull-through site with 25 channel cable TV and Internet that worked for our needs (e-mail and surfing). The park is heavily treed so I would not bet on getting a satellite TV friendly site. There were only about a dozen other RVs in the park the night we were here. Only 21 of the sites are full hookup with the other 42 being W&E. The sites are about 50/50 between pull-through and back-in. The RV pads are a combination of gravel, dirt, and grass. Site size was OK for us. I would advise calling ahead during the summer season if you want a full hookup site. We got here after some heavy rains and a lot of the park's interior gravel roads were impassable on foot. The owner told me that their ground is mostly clay and does not absorb water well. Although we were there post Memorial Day, was too cool to use the pool. There is are also a playground, a volleyball court, a basketball hoop, mini-golf, horseshoe pits, a rec hall, and a small fishing/boating lake. The main building houses the office, a typical KOA store, small laundry, and the bathroom facilities. All these are older but clean and functional. There are several dog walking areas. They also sell propane, have a dump station, and have a small RV repair shop on the property. Limited breakfast items are served on Saturday and Sunday mornings during the summer. The owners live on site and were friendly and helpful. We camped at Casey KOA in a Motorhome.

We checked in after 2pm for our 2-day stay. The female owner was cheerful and helpful. They're not really dog friendly. More like dog tolerant. The park has lots of trees and shade, and sites were fairly level, so they get a star for that. This was the 105th park we've stayed at in 2 yrs of fulltime RVing and the absolute worst one in terms of customer service.

The old man in the golf cart guided us into our site at a sharp angle instead of parallel to the pedestal. He didn't wait to check that we were okay with it, and quickly drove off. It became obvious after he left that the door to our wet bay would hit the pedestal when we opened it and we were too far from the sewer. The park was still 75% empty and no one else had driven in or out during this time so we decided to go around again to straighten our rig. Well, the old man quickly drove back and went into a ballistic rant about how we shouldn't go around without asking first. Then he drove off in a hissy fit and sent his helper to rant at us some more. As he's ranting, we detached our dolly and unhitched our car and moved the coach back into the site. He yelled at us over the sound of a diesel engine saying "you people" can't do this or that and only they can decide where to put us and we were going to get kicked out if we didn't listen.

We finally got our coach in the right place for the utilities. This was a minor problem that every campground encounters occasionally. Plenty of rigs adjust their position either to get level or to get better placement for utilities. But the ranting of the two men was way over the top and didn't help. We considered leaving but we had plans in Casey and a couple of angry men on power trips weren't going to ruin them.

The owners and employee at Casey KOA need to remember that they're in the HOSPITALITY industry. So ranting at their guest should be a last resort. Also referring to a guest as "you people" could be deemed offensive. Not staying here again. We camped at Casey KOA in a Motorhome.

Good site. Easy access off interstate. Owners on site. Quiet, felt safe. Restrooms and showers clean. Cable tv worked well.

Nice park with easy access from the interstate. Roads and spaces are gravel with lots of trees. The long driveway from the road to the campground has several pot holes that need to be filled. The park was very clean, we were escorted to our space and they assisted with parking. The price is a little high for the area, but overall a very nice stay. We camped at Casey KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Quick access from I-70 at exit 129.

Easy online reservation process - even for same day check in. They also have after hours check in outside the office. As with all KOA's this one is pricey at $49/night. Friendly, helpful check in host. Another staff member led us to our space, which given that we were in site 1 right next to the office was quite unnecessary but fine. We were given a KOA re-usable tote bag and 2 chocolate chip cookies at check in.

They have a small store that is very well stocked. There is an on site RV repair shop so they stock many rv parts in the store as well. My hubby found a fuse that he couldn't find it Walmart recently.

Roads are hard packed dirt, gravel and grass. It was dry during our visit but we could see ruts in many areas so it probably gets muddy with heavy rains.

Although near the interstate, road noise was not bad.

They have a dog walk area and quite a few signs restricting pets from other areas in the cg.

Large laundry room with 4 washers and 2 very large dryers. Pricing was steep $2/washer and .25/5 minutes to dry.

Clean restroom with 4 toilet stall and 3 shower stalls that had benches and hooks for hanging your belongings. Well-kept but dated.

Many Amenities: Nice large pool that is up to 9' deep. Pool is only open till dusk. A small lake with a ramshackle dock that you can fish from. They rent small john boats that you could paddle around in too. Game room with pool, ping pong and some old video arcade games. 2 horseshoe pits. A 9 hole mini golf course.

They also have 3 cabins for rent that looked very cute from the outside w/ porch swings and grills at each one. We camped at Casey KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Just across the interstate from the World's Largest Wind Chime and the World's Largest Golf Tee. We could not hear the chime from the cg, which we were glad about.

The cg is bordered by a corn field on 1 side. Some of the sites were right up next to it. During our stay the corn was 6 or 7 feet high. Something to be aware of if you are freaked out by Steven King's Children of the Corn!

Electric 50/30/20 good, Water 60psi, good sewer. WiFi is acceptable by owners. AT&T Cell phone is weak, AT&T Air card does not connect. Verizon Air Card works very well. Cable is poor. Satellite access for roof mounted antennas is bad because of all the trees. If you have an antenna on a tripod you might get satellite reception. I did in #3. They had a lot of rain here and that could be causing part of the problem. Sites are dirt and gravel. Due to the hard rains over the last week the sites have been graded to allow drainage and is good due to the raining conditions. Sites are level and mine was long enough to hold my 38ft 5th wheel and truck. There is enough room between sites to allow for the awning and room to move around. Restrooms and showers are great. Showers are private stalls with tall doors. Some long term tenants but they are neat and clean. Only discount is the KOA 10% if you are a member. Payment by credit card is acceptable. Owners are nice. Were frustrated due to the rain making conditions difficult for them to maintain, but they did well and were very polite. Price is high for this park but being a KOA that is expected. I would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Casey KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We experienced a mechanical problem along our route and we weren't going to make it to our reservation in Indiana. The lady who answered the phone was very friendly and assured us they could accommodate our 44' 50 amp rig. When we arrived (somewhat frazzled) they greeted us warmly and escorted us to a pull-thru gravel/grassy spot. The next morning we enjoyed the park's all-you-can-eat pancake/sausage breakfast - attended by several other campers. The owners are very friendly people and create a welcoming environment. We would definitely stay with them if traveling this route again. We camped at Casey KOA in a Motorhome.

Good for an overnight stay. It is early in the season, so not many people where here yet. Close to the highway, but we didn't hear it since we had our air conditioning running. Sites were still in the process of being mowed for the first time, so ours was un-mowed since we pulled in before they got to it. Check-in was very speedy. Escort to the site. To get to the front row of sites, you have to pull through the back row of sites. That was odd. Cable TV selection was excellent, especially if you have kids. Verizon was 2 bars on 4G. WiFi was slow and tended to time out way too often....we broke out the Mifi instead. We would stay here again if we needed an overnight accommodation. We camped at Casey KOA in a Motorhome.

We felt that $44.00 a night was too high for the time of year we stayed. The lady that checked us in was friendly and we were escorted to our site but be prepared for the very long, very bumpy driveway into the park. We heard truck traffic all night. Wifi worked well but there was no cable TV. Would stay here again only if necessary. We camped at Casey KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here passing through on our way home from Ohio. We got in late (9:45pm) and the owner was nice enough to lead us to our pull-through. Quiet park with a nice lake nearby. Sites were grass/gravel from what I could tell. WiFi free and easy to access but pretty slow. Hookups were there for cable TV but it must've been inactive. Overall a nice RV park for a break from a long drive, but I wouldn't "vacation" there. A little pricy for what you get but it is a KOA. My only true grip is the access road is filled with potholes. Sounds like they filled them about a year ago but they're back big time! We camped at Casey KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice, quiet shady park. Potholes in the access road have been filled in. Manager thought we might not get satellite from our site (44), but we got DirectTV with no problem. We opted for a non-sewer site. I marked it as "not pet friendly" due to their policy of no pet pens - an policy on which they were not at all flexible. One of our Bichon Friese's is a very nervous puppy mill rescue, and the pen is her safety net when outside the coach. Getting her to do her "business" outside the pen is next to impossible. I asked if I could set up the pen just long enough for her to do her thing, but that was not possible. This may not be important to non-pet people, but it is very important to us. It's also for that reason that I did not rate this park higher, and the reason we will not stay here again.I We camped at Casey KOA in a Motorhome.
