Some of the RV sites at the KOA campground near Hayward, Wis.

Kampgrounds of America Inc.’s (KOA) campground in Hayward, Wis., owned and operated by Steve and Christina Hennings and Linda and Arnold Jensen, has been named one of the top five family campgrounds in a 12-state Midwest Region by Midwest Living Magazine.

“It’s truly an honor to be the only privately owned campground to make Midwest Living’s Top 5 List,” Steve Hennings stated in a news release. “We take great pride in the experience we are able to provide to our campers, and it’s gratifying to see that effort recognized by a top magazine.”

The story featuring the Top 5 campgrounds, titled “Camp Like A Star,” is featured in the June 2013 edition of Midwest Living Magazine.

Other campgrounds listed in the Top 5 were Brown County State Park, Nashville, Ind.; Sibley State Park Campground, New London, Minn.; Indiana Dunes State Park, Chesterton, Ind.; and Eugene T. Mahoney State Park, Ashland, Neb.

“Keeping in mind the popularity of RVs, we researched hundreds of RV campgrounds in the region, visited dozens and interviewed avid campers in all 12 states,” states the Midwest Living article. “We picked our favorites in categories for scenery and for amenities – then crowned 5 ‘supercampgrounds” that have an amazing combination of both.”

The Hayward KOA features 28 wooded acres, 157 RV sites and 31 cabins. Midwest Living writers cited the campground’s themed weekends (including a Chocolate Weekend complete with a chocolate slide), a water park, free s’mores, outdoor movies and DJ’d dances as among their favorite Hayward KOA features.

The campground also has a Jumping Pillow, bike rentals, mini golf and two playgrounds. You can even rent a kayak or tube for a trip down the Namekagon River and take advantage of the KOA’s shuttle service to get you back again.
