We got a great shaded site, which is uncommon, and we were nice and close to the laundry facility. That's the good news.
Staff rude. Facility understaffed. Major management failure.
Lake closed half the time we were here for unsanitary conditions. Dog poop all along shore! Pool over chlorinated and stung my kids lips and ears. Then once chemicals balanced we couldn't enter due to a family reunion overcrowding it. 100+ ppl! So, after 5 days not being able to use lake or pool, we tried going again and this time pool closed due to unsanitary conditions!! We can't win. My poor kiddos. ??
KOA guests ruin the place. They are rude, let their dogs bark at all hours, drink and party past 11pm, someone let their dog pee and poop in laundry room, etc. Thousand Trails clientele care because poor behavior would cause you to loose your membership! And we care because we pay a high price for a RESORT camping experience! NOT here at Batesville!! I'll never return.
If it weren't for good friends we're traveling with, I'd have left last week!!
Gas powered golf carts also go way too fast!! No speed limit enforced. Cars zoom through 15-20 mph in the 5 mph zone.
Not a happy camper.

This KOA is a small piece of a larger recreational facility including a very large seasonal campground. The staff are reasonably friendly and the KOA portion of the facility is reasonably clean. Travelling campers, though, need to beware. The basic layout of the campground is normal, but somewhere along the line, the owners have gone through and crammed sites into every available bit of space.

Adjacent sites sit at an angle to one another--pull through and stop and your vehicle blocks access to the neighboring site. The sites are graveled but not graded, leveling your camper is a real problem.

Water to the "crammed in" sites comes through plastic tubing from a splitter downstream from the valve on an existing site--turn off that valve and you've stopped water to both sites.

Similarly, 30 amp service to the "crammed in" sites comes from a breaker box on an existing site to a plug on a post. The breaker box contains two unlabeled 30 amp breakers.

We backed into the "pull through" site, moving back and forth several time to get as level as possible and still reach all of our services.

We hooked up water and electric and had neither. My husband traced the water to the neighbor's spigot, explained, then waited while the neighbor completed his hookup so he could turn on the water. Then he traced the electric service to a different adjacent site--this one unoccupied.

KOA needs to look into this one. Very frustrating.
