We should have known we were in for a mess when the entrance road to the sites disappeared from view! Hilly terrain, my foot. We had to unhook to make the incredible turn; we traversed down an ill-defined, soft-dirt road and entered a NARROW, unlevel site after we drove over a large hump of soft dirt. Talk about an old fish camp full of seasonals--converted school busses, tied-out barking dogs unable to reach their water, loose dogs being walked by owners who warned us from them, seasonal on-site campers and many seasonal empty rigs. We had to back out of the site because it was too risky to make the turn into the soft dirt with a big rig. BIG RIGS stay away--that's not hard, though, because the KOA signage was not obvious until you'd passed the steep, winding entrance road. A friendly office woman, game room, and barely-adequate laundry (Woodall's rating criteria) did not balance out the dowdy, unkempt appearance, broken concrete, and narrow inner roads of this campground. A dog wouldn't have jumped in the pool. WE WERE ASTOUNDED IT WAS A 4-W IN WOODALLS, and that KOA, for whatever it's worth, would designate this as a KOA park. We had to rock up the road (crack a windshield?) etc., hook up in front of the office, at an angle, and were NEVER so glad to leave a park. In 5 years of full-timing, this is truly our only bad and definitely worst ever, we hope, camping experience. We have a totally new wariness of KOA'S and Woodall's ratings now. STAY AWAY! We camped here in a camper.

Sites were quite close, somewhat difficult access is via clay/sand roads. Quite a number of seasonal folks. Over all, the park is not well laid out and when we stayed there CG was not well marked from the Highway. Near Hillsdale Lake for fishing, boating and swimming. We camped here in a camper.
