    Please share your comments about your experience : This is a mixed park; part KOA, part member only Travel Resorts of America. This causes a lot of issues, including sites only usable for one or the other, tension among guests, tremendous confusion at the front desk, with rules about who can and cannot make reservations, which sites can be used for sales vs. marketing vs. KOA. In 7 years of workamping, I've never witnessed such disorganization. The park needs a lot of improvements. Roads are rutted, potholes, washouts, exposed sewer pipes, exposed electrical, rotten wood and decks, although they have replaced a few TRA member only site's decks. Sites are very narrow and most are very short, with several having steep enough inclines that guests cannot back their truck to get connected. New management in place, and numerous employees have been let go. Unfortunately, they have not been replaced, so people are expected to do multiple jobs for little or no compensation. Several workampers have been told if they go over 40 hours, it will be continuously rolled to the next paycheck to avoid paying overtime. Employee morale is very low, and when they try to talk about issues, it is ignored. Lack of direction and clear leadership is evident. On the plus side, the lake is lovely, and workamper wifi is wonderful! Wk are paid, site rent is $200 monthly. No laundry, no propane, no cable, no employee appreciation whatsoever. Final thought: People don't leave bad jobs, they leave bad managers.

    Did you receive any special benefits or perks while workamping? : Great wifi!
