One of the nicer KOA that we've stayed in. Close to the hwy so lots of noise but quiets down at night. Your picks of nice campgrounds with full hookups in the area are limited. About a 45 minute ride to Lake Itasca Park and the headwaters. Very nice and friendly host. We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Thoroughly enjoyed the three nights we spent here. We needed a few days of down time and this campground provided it. Verizon coverage is good. No over-the-air TV stations, but the campground has cable (22 analog stations, around 50 digital). Wi-Fi was good, although sometimes slow. You are provided with a code that can be used on 1 device. Extra devices are $2 each. All employees were pleasant. Another camper commented that the cabins were clean. They do have food that you can buy and have delivered to your campsite. People next to us tried that and were not impressed. All in all, it was a nice stay and we would stop here again. We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Motorhome.

This park is OK. Sites are shaded, but very little has been done to keep them up to date. No activities, not very family friendly. Outdated mini golf. Owners are very unfriendly, not customer oriented at all. Not sure how they became 2014 Presidents Award winner, must not be very big guidelines to be awarded. We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects tax and value card discount. Our deluxe pull thru site was level and services, including Wi-Fi and cable were great. Friendly check-in. Quiet location. Stayed here before and will return when next in area. We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

OK for overnight, looks pretty well used. The sites were muddy. Good space between sites. We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Our second stay here. We found it clean, the staff friendly, and our site was nice and level. Wi-fi was slow, but adequate for our needs. There's a large pet walking area, which was nice but could use a trash container. Lots to see and do in the area. We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Motorhome.

Services worked well including Wi-Fi and cable. Level pull-through gravel site. Only negative we encountered would be the need to do some cutting of limbs that made it a little tight getting into our site. Stayed two nights and would definitely stay here again when next in area.

A bit too expensive for what it is. The park is well maintained, the owners seem to be on the ball and trying hard. Utilities at the sites work well and the sites are spacious. The Wi-Fi is just weird, when you check in they print out a receipt with a user name and password. Both of these are impossible to remember and a pain to type in. If you try to access the Wi-Fi with a different computer or device you can't do it. The access code is only good for one computer and only good for one day. Way too much trouble for something that should be free and easy to use. The store is the best I've seen at a RV park, great selection of little things you might need, Fuses, bulbs little connectors things you'd normally see at a well stocked RV parts store. I'd stay here again but would have to think twice based on the price. We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Motorhome.

The new owners are working hard to bring this park up to their standards. Check in was easy and when guided to our site, found the branches in the way of one of the slides. The owner went and got a trimmer and removed the branches and made sure they wouldn't rub. Not many places will do that. The grounds are extremely clean and a nice feature is that this is a gated park. If you don't have the code, you don't get in after hours. Nice for peace of mind. If I ever get back this way, I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Motorhome.

This campground is gated, clean, and quiet. The lady that checked me in wasn't too friendly. The campground was pretty empty at this time of year. When I asked if we could have a site where the trees would not block our rooftop satellite, she said more than once that there are no guarantees. She also commented that we are supposed to be camping, which I didn't appreciate since that is not our situation. The gentleman that escorted us to our site was very helpful and friendly. The pull-through was long, level, and wide with grass between sites. The bathrooms and showers were clean, but there was little light in the showers. The laundry room looked clean, but had a strong odor of mildew. They charge $3 per child even though the pool and game room were both closed. Overall, price is too high but nice campground. We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Motorhome.

Very friendly staff! We had all the services you would would want. The sites were roomy and even had fire pits. The place is well kept and we had to look hard to find any kind of garbage. We stayed for two nights, and we would stay here again. We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Highest rate we paid on a 39 night journey. Site was gravel back in. Hookups not very convenient. Staff were nice, but free breakfast consisted of cereal, and bread for toast, along with coffee. There wasn't anything really bad about this park, but I would expect more for the rate charged. We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This was a nice park, for a KOA. The sites were comfortably spaced and easy to access. The staff was helpful and friendly and the park was clean and obviously well cared for. We spent four nights and enjoyed exploring the area. The trip to the Big Bog was a let down but the trip to Itasca State Park and the headwaters of the Mississippi was great. The little town of Bemidji, where the park is located, was a pleasant one with a very nice visitor's center. We would return to this park. We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Having a KOA Value card, this is one of the worst KOA's we've visited. We were greeted promptly, however we were escorted to our site in the wrong direction. The campground host had to remove the site post in order for me to squeeze in. The site was tight and for the amount charged per night, one would expect to have enough room to extend the awning. Not here. I doubt we will stay here again. We camped at Bemidji KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a good campground. We did have WIFI at our lot, but only had electric. We have paid the same rate at other campgrounds and had all services. The dump station is just after the office instead of on the way out. We stayed here because it was the only campground in the area that suited our purpose for the night. Staff was friendly.
