The $70 rate reflects a patio site. Well worth the extra money. Our site was on the other side of the lake under the trees. The patio sites come with either a concrete patio or, like our site, a wood deck. Also included is a patio table with 4 chairs and a large swing, which was a nice touch. The owners have put a lot of time and effort into this campground and it shows. Very nicely landscaped throughout. The pool was the perfect temperature, as was the hot tub. Good food at reasonable prices in the Kafe. Well stocked store. Firewood was well seasoned and dry. They deliver it to your site as well as ice. Nice touch. If you run into the owners, be sure and say hi. They are very friendly. We camped at Shelby / Mansfield KOA in a Tent Trailer.

Very nice park with many amenities and things for kids (and adults) to do. However, be prepared to pay for most of them. Very little is included with the fee you pay to camp there. They seem to nickel and dime you for any activity/amenity beyond swimming and play grounds. Mini golf, paddle boats, laser tag, zip line, jumping pillow - all fun things to do but each has an admission price. That's over and above the $5 fee you pay per person per day if you come with more than two people in your party. And if you travel with more than one vehicle - there's a $3 charge for that as well. I highly recommend that if you make reservations here, do so over the phone with someone at the actual resort instead of the KOA web site. I was given the impression that only one site type was available and consequently selected it. Naturally, it was one of the most expensive sites they offer, patio with swing and grill. However, when we got there we discovered there were several less expensive sites still available. But since we already set up camp, it wasn't worth making a fuss about once we discovered all the cheaper vacant spaces. Most of the park is maintained well. The exception to this is the mini-golf course. I imagine when it was initially put in, it was very nice. However it seems as though years of neglect and weeds have overrun it. Playing there was a disappointment especially when it cost $4.50/person. The laser tag is a great feature but the barely trained kid(s) running it need to explain the equipment and rules better to the people that paid $7/ea to play it. They basically said, "Here's your gun. Aim for your opponents head band. Ready, set, go!" Definitely a huge waste of money. All in all the campground has a lot to offer and is for the most part well run, clean, and professional. It's just a shame that they gouge their guests for so much. And since they're in the middle of nowhere, they seem to have a monopolistic attitude when it comes to pricing items in their general store. One thing that was nice was the fact that check out isn't until 2:00. That let us not feel as though we were rushed to leave like so many other campgrounds that have 11:00 or 12:00 check out. We will likely camp here again, but not more than once per season as this campground is truly one of the more expensive ones out there after you factor in all the additional expenses. We camped at Shelby / Mansfield KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice and clean park with variety of activities. Very distant from major highways and in middle of farm country. Poor cell coverage and pay WiFi has limited range. Trash pick up at site, but trash will stay in front of your site all day. Has nice dog park. We camped at Shelby / Mansfield KOA in a Motorhome.

Friendly hands-on KOA owner. We had a beautiful site. No loud highways or trains, and we disagree with a former reviewer: it was easy to find, and right on our chosen route. Great showers, though we are not fans of those automatic shut-off handles we've been seeing lately. Strong 4G Mi-Fi. Would definitely stay here again.

One of the nicest campgrounds I have ever stayed in. Clean, attractive (flowers everywhere),well-planned and well-organized. Lots of amenities such as a dog park (with dog agility equipment), cafe with real food plus treats like ice cream, gym (not a very good one), etc. Also many organized activities for families. The negative about this excellent KOA is the location - it is miles from a major highway. It takes a long time to get here and it is hard to find. We camped at Shelby / Mansfield KOA in a Motorhome.

A little disappointed that the "heated" pool and hot tub were already closed for the season. Very large pull-through sites. Also had some deluxe RV sites with concrete stamped pad, table and chairs, gas grill, chiminea, fire pit, and glider. Doggie playground area too. Nice store and restaurant. A+ on the restrooms/showers. Lots of activities for grand kids. Surrounded by corn fields in the middle of nowhere: very quiet. We camped at Shelby / Mansfield KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice park out in the middle of gods country. Lots of activities for the kids to do. The pull-throughs have small tress and the back-ins are not big rig friendly. We camped at Shelby / Mansfield KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is in the country miles away from any village or town. Interior roads and pads are gravel with good green space between sites. Our rate reflects 50 amp electric and water pull-through site. Office staff was very friendly. We were escorted to our site. Most the facilities are new or recently updated. Two ponds on the grounds in addition to the swimming pool. We stayed in newer section which has small trees. Verizon cell was good and satellite TV was no problem. We camped at Shelby / Mansfield KOA in a Motorhome.

This campground was fantastic! We stayed during the 4th of July weekend. The park was immaculately clean. This is a terrific peaceful family park. Our pull through full hook up site was very large and private. The pool was wonderful. There are 3 playgrounds, a fishing lake, and paddle boating lake, a great putt putt course, golf carts to rent, a cafe and general store and much much more. The staff was fantastic and very helpful. They delivered firewood and ice, and picked up our garbage bags a few times a day from our site. There were tons of activities to engage our children. We were thoroughly impressed with this park and will definitely camp here again. Excellent and highly recommended! We camped at Shelby / Mansfield KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This review is based on our 1st visit to this KOA. Overall, I think the price per night is a little expensive but this place is very nice, clean and they had many activities scheduled throughout the day. Pool, showers, lakes are all maintained very well. The game room is good idea, but it has more gumball machines than games in it. The campsite reviews will vary based on where your located. Most of the older part of the park is dedicated to seasonal campers. We were lucky enough to be located in the small older loop section on Site 81 which had Full Hook-up and backed up to a stream. It was a little tight to back into, but was able to manage it with help from the staff who escorted me to the site. Once setup, the site was good size with good tall shade trees and adequate space between sites. The newer section adjacent to the banquet hall and parking lot which is were the majority of the weekend campers stay only have small trees and the sites a little more bunched together. These sites are better suited for big rigs and those who prefer pull-throughs. I would stay here again but will probably not make it a yearly stop.

This is a very pretty park, however, it has very poor water pressure at campsite in late evening, could not shower. Lots of activities, but most cost an additional fee. Have been there 3 years in a row and would have to say the previous two years were a much better experience. We camped at Shelby / Mansfield KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is a wonderful campground. We had a heavily wooded site with water and electric on a level gravel pad. Even though there was a creek in front of the site, bugs were almost non-existent. Showers and restrooms were very clean and close. Nice sized pool with a hot tub. Nice playgrounds for children of all ages. Well equipped store with reasonable prices. They deliver firewood and ice to your site which is a nice touch. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Well off the beaten path yet easy to get to. I will surely camp here again. I might even try out one of the many cabins they have for rent. We camped at Shelby / Mansfield KOA in a Tent Trailer.

We only stayed 1 night, but would like to come back. There were a lot of activities for the kids and a good little restaurant inside the camp. The lodge/cabin we stayed in could use some updating. The park would have been rated higher if they were in a little better condition. We camped at Shelby / Mansfield KOA in a Campground Cabin.

This is the best campground by far we have ever seen for children. I don't think Disney has as much going on for kids as this place does. Very clean and well organized. My only gripe was the extra charge for WiFi. At these prices it should be free. We camped at Shelby / Mansfield KOA in a Travel Trailer.
