Very nice as KOA's go but it was very dusty. Good access to the interstate and other businesses. We camped at Madison KOA in a Motorhome.

Convenient location to I-90. The staff worked to get us into a longer pull through to handle our motor home and toad. The park is pleasant and well maintained. We stayed her five days getting care for our sick dog while on an extended trip. Madison has excellent vets & animal ER clinic. We got satellite reception from our site and WIFI was good.

We liked this park. It is clean with a nice playground area. Our site was level and had a shade tree and nice grass between the lots. The lots are average size and most, perhaps all, are pull thru. We were only here one night but would stay again. We camped at Madison KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here the night before the Madison FMCA Rally. It was about 20 miles from where it was held. It seems everyone else had the same idea. The park was filled to capacity. They had a couple of RV's parked in the lot & they turned away 30 customers who had no reservations. It was a nice park. The bathrooms were clean. They had a nice pool & playground. It was across the street from an Arby's, a Mc Donald's & a Culver's. Satellite & over the air antenna signal were easy to get. My favorite part of the campground was that they recycled. They had a large dumpster for single stream recycling; paper, cardboard, plastic, glass. I have been to parks that take plastic & glass but never one that took all recyclable materials. We camped at Madison KOA in a Motorhome.

We have a pull thru site with room for our 40' motor home and toad. Room between sites, very well maintained park. Staff friendly and helpful. Laundry facilities clean and machines worked well. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Madison KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a grocery store nearby. Walmart not close.

I had a reservation for the 18th of the month and had to same day cancel. We could not make the drive. Therefore, I had to pay the full $60 daily fee (no discount), as I called to cancel the same day. Fine. I can understand. Then, I finally arrived the next day, on the 19th. Instead of giving me a credit or partial credit, I had to pay the full fee for the 19th, as well. I am not happy about that.... As far as the campground: it is basically a flat field, with a few trees, lots of highway noise, and minimal amentities. It is okay as a base, or overnight stay, but that's about it. The internet is strong, and satellite reception is easy. I don't sense pride of ownership here. It is very spartan. In sum, I would rank this campground very low, versus the many other KOA's I have visited. We camped at Madison KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here to de-stress after two weeks of RV Rallies, and we made a good choice. The park is laid out in a series of rings, with almost all sites being pull-thrus. Interior roads and sites are gravel that can get a little dusty when it's dry, but the sites are well spaced and have decent grassy areas with picnic tables and fire rings. Inner rings are somewhat shaded while the outer section has fewer trees to get in the way of satellite signals. It is relatively close to the Interstate, so road noise can be heard, especially from "D" ring. There isn't much nearby other than several fast food restaurants near the highway interchange, but the location is good as a base to explore the Madison area. There is a pool and large play area for kids, plus small/large fenced dog runs. Staff is friendly and helpful. We will stay here again as we pass back through the area in September. We camped at Madison KOA in a Motorhome.

This is our first time here in 3 years. The new owners have kept this park up well. We had level, gravel, pull-through that was fairly wide. This describes most of the RV sites. There are also a dozen W&E back-ins on the eastern edge of the park and another half dozen group sites to the right of the entry road. The southern edge of the park has dozens of stored RVs. Some folks might consider this a negative. The park seems to have a lot more extended stay customers than I remember from my previous stays. Some of these appear to be people working in the area rather than vacationing or travelling RVers. There is no cable but there are all the local stations from Madison and most sites appear to be satellite friendly. I found the 802.11 system to be rather slow. An earlier reviewer praised the speed of the system but he was here in April when there were hardly any other customers. The bathrooms, showers, and laundry are all in the office building. They are older, but clean and acceptable. The pool is nice but small - 5 or 6 active kids will dominate the pool. There is also a playground that kids were actually using. As others have mentioned, there are 5 fast food places within a 5 minute walk of the park. The wide entry road has a dump station and propane sales. The rate is a bit high for a park without cable and such a small pool. We camped at Madison KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice parkbut the showers were very bad. No room to change clothes the bottom of the shower wall is about 18 inches from floor so that the person in the next shower's water gets on your changing area and the floor so you have to change with a wet floor. There is no curb so when you take a shower the water gets in your changing area. The shower house is dated in the 50's I figure. Other than that we stayed for 1 night and as a stop over it's not bad but not worth the cost. We camped at Madison KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice KOA, but like most KOA's, it is right on the interstate, so there is a lot of road noise. However, it is an easy in and out, the staff was friendly, and the sites are level and reasonably spacious. We would stay here again. We camped at Madison KOA in a Motorhome.

Pull through site was barely long enough for coach and car, but was level and wide enough. Interior roads a bit narrow for big rigs and dusty. Utilities worked well. It's a KOA so it is badly overpriced. We camped at Madison KOA in a Motorhome.

As other reviewers have reported, this is a very nice campground. We have been coming here since 2009, usually once or twice a year. If I had rated the campground during previous visits, I would have given it a 9 rating because I could never use the free Wi-Fi, and had to rely on my Verizon Hotspot. During some visits, the Wi-Fi didn't even work in the office.

The Wi-Fi problems no longer exist. The campground has changed ownership since last year, and the new owners have upgraded the Wi-Fi system. During my current visit in April 2015, the Wi-Fi worked flawlessly. It was very fast with a strong signal. It is the best Wi-Fi that I have had at any KOA. The campground now rates a perfect 10. We camped at Madison KOA in a Motorhome.

Not a bad place for a one night stop, but not long term. The location is a little remote and a little expensive for what you get. The bathrooms were very clean. We camped at Madison KOA in a Motorhome.

100% pull-through full-hookup sites. A little short by today's standards--we are 50' total with truck and trailer, and were almost hanging out the ends of the site. Easy to get into due to layout of the park. Adequate space for awning and slides if you have them. No shade at any site I saw, weak Wi-Fi signal. VERY pleasant and helpful staff, escorted to site, spray-disinfected the water hookup, helped us line up with sewer, took and returned propane tank for fill. Ideal location for overnight stop, the trade-off is significant road noise from nearby interstate. Otherwise very quiet. We camped at Madison KOA in a Travel Trailer.
