Cartersville KOA

Added by camprate admin

4 reviews

Whether you’re seeking the quiet of a country campground or the “Hot-Lanta” attractions of one of America’s most vivacious cities, this KOA has you covered. It offers quick and easy access from I-75, large pull thru sites and two huge pet walk areas to help the whole family unwind from a road trip. With the red-rock rolling hills of northern Georgia surrounding you, you’re a mere 45 to 50 freeway miles from Atlanta.

Look for signs of the iron mines that operated here and learn about iron ore at the Weinman Mineral Museum. Sample the historic charm of nearby Rome and Cartersville.

Pet Policy

1. Aggressive dogs of any breed are not welcome at any KOA. If your dog shows behavior that is protective and unfriendly to strangers, please leave it home. If you decide to bring your dog and it exhibits this type of behavior the owner or management of the KOA will ask you to please find other camping accommodations. KOA Kampgrounds are individually owned and operated and some campgrounds may have policies against accepting certain breeds that have been identified by our major insurance provider as having a history of unfriendly and aggressive behavior to both other dogs and to humans. These breeds are Pit Bulls and Pit Bull mixes, Rottweilers and Dobermans. 2. Pet rules unique to the location will be addressed at time of reservation or registration. We encourage all dog owners to call in advance to inquire about any specific rules that might apply to their situation. Some KOA Kampgrounds do not allow pets in their Kamping Kabins or have limited availability of pet units for rent. Please call in inquire about availability for you and your pet. 3. All dogs are required to be under the control and visual observation of their owner at all times. A 6’ (six foot) leash rule is in effect whenever the animal is outside the owner’s camping trailer, vehicle, kabin, or motorhome. No dog should be left tied up and unattended outside the owner’s camping equipment. 4. Allowing your pet to bark uncontrollably day or night will not be permitted and you may be asked to leave if you are not able to control your pet’s barking behavior. 5. Service dogs of any breed are welcome at all KOA Kampgrounds. However, these animals must follow leash restraint policies and may not exhibit aggressive behavior.

RUDE, RUDE, RUDE AND DID I SAY RUDE!!!!!

Date:

November 29, 2010

My family and I have been RVing for the last 7 years and in that time I have never met management of an RV park that was as RUDE as the management at the KOA CARTERSVILLE, GA. They ruined our Thanksgiving holiday and we will NEVER recommend this park to anyone.

We made reservations at this park for the week of Thanksgiving, arriving on 11/20/10 and departing on 11/27/10 per the email that I received everything was confirmed. When we checked in at the park, we again confirmed the fact that we were leaving on Saturday. We also asked twice to make sure that it was okay that we cooked our turkey for Thanksgiving outside in the deep fryer. The response was, "I guess it's okay".

The week began just like any other, enjoying our time in Cartersville with family and friends. Thanksgiving morning our family began to arrive for the day and we made a trip to the grocery store. When we returned from the grocery store with our Thanksgiving day groceries, another family member had arrived and parked their vehicle at the campsite, remember there is a 1 vehicle per site rule. When we pulled the second vehicle into the campsite to unload the groceries, we were followed and scolded by the parking GUstapo. The manager, Shawn Miller, was extremely aggitated at the fact that we pulled the second vehicle into the park to unload the groceries at our site. We tried to explain to him that we were only unloading the groceries and would move the vehicle as soon as we were done. He informed us that we were to move the vehicle immediately and any groceries or supplies were to be carried from the parking lot to our site and that it was only one vehicle per site. He also stated "My park, my rules!". So as not to completely destroy our day, we quickly unloaded the groceries and were ready to move the vehicle when Mr. Miller began to drive off in his golf cart, we very graciously wished him a "Happy Thanksgiving", he then abruptly stopped his golf cart, jumped off and asked " What did you Say?" and we repeated Happy Thanksgiving. I wondered who whizzed in his turkey and mashed potatoes.

On Friday, we began preparing for the arrival of our additional family that could not make it on Thursday, when the offfice personnel came by to mark off our site for a new arrival. She said to us that we were only reserved through Friday and they had new arrivals coming in so we had to leave. When we reviewed the receipt, the office had only charged us through Friday, we should have reviewed the receipt before then, but thought that we could trust KOA, after all they are nationwide.

We began to look for somewhere else to move for our last night in the area when we were informed that because we had not left by 12 noon they were going to charge us a $15 late departure fee. We then agreed to move to another site in the same campground and swore we would never recommend this place to anyone.

Nice Place/RUDE Staff!

Date:

September 7, 2010

The KOA in Cartersville GA has very nice facilities. We stayed in the one "Kabin" they have over Labor Day weekend, and were very pleased with this little air conditioned, one room cottage. Also, the bathrooms and showers are immaculate and well-maintained.

HOWEVER....anyone outside of the KOA Target Demographic should not expect to feel welcome here. From the moment our group of mixed-ethnicity singles arrived, we were rudely hassled about various rules and regulations.

We had informed them in advance that we would be bringing 2 vehicles and a boat. But at check-in the owners, Shawn & Tammy, were clearly irritated at finding parking spaces for us at their half-empty campground. We did bring the boat and tow vehicle over to the Kabin briefly a few times (carefully obeying the ridiculous 4.92 mph speed limit) to load or unload. Rather than politely reminding us to park the truck and boat back at the designated spots when we were done, they just barked "You can't do that! One vehicle per site!" This pattern was repeated when we had guests visiting us during our stay, and when we were playing music 20 minutes before "Quiet Time".

Now perhaps they treat all their customers with the same disrespectful attitude. But we found it very interesting that the only other site that seemed to be given a hard time while we were there, was a diverse group of Christian college students next to us, wishing a friend well before he was deployed to Iraq. We were the only other campers within earshot of their mild celebration, and we certainly didn't complain. But we learned later that the owners had called the sheriff on these kids on a "suspicion" of under-age drinking. This proved not to be the case after the local authorities came and interrupted their festivites to check them out.

From their website ---
Shawn and Tammy Miller arrived as the new managers of the Cartersville/Cassville-White, Georgia KOA in May, 2008. They both agree, "We want to make everyone feel welcome and at home, WHATEVER it takes!"

I smell pants on fire! Needless to say, Shawn and Tammy Miller at KOA in Cartersville GA need not worry about ever being annoyed by us, or any of the dozens of avid campers that we know ever again!

Tonight my husband and I called this KOA and spoke with Carol on the phone who was very kind. I told her we wanted to come look at the campground. I have accepted a teaching position nearby, and planned to put our travel trailer there until securing a permanent place. First, I was admonished gruffly and shamefully by Shawn Miller, Mgr./Part Owner, for not stopping at the office before driving through the campground. I apologized and he continued to behave in an inhospitable and rude way. I again aplgogized. Neither he, nor his employee, both in yellow shirts, made any gestures to us at all as we were driving through. Secondly, when asked what length and year our camper is, we were told it was unacceptable because it is more than 10 years old. We have never been treated so disrespectfully in any KOA Campground previously. We will not be renewing our membership, and I will be sure to relate our experience to our friends who camp.
