    First Time

    This was our first time camping at this park and I have to say that overall we are very satisfied. The grounds are well maintained and the camp hosts/staff are very friendly. The other campers were friendly and courteous. the tables, fire rings, RV pads, dump station, and bathrooms were all in good working order. Lots for the kids and parents to do. The ONLY thing that really was a bit of a pain was the showers. It takes a very long time to get hot water and once the water warmed up it was TOO hot. Other than that the location (just outside of Lebanon) was terrific and so was our experience.

    Beautiful Campground With Park-like Setting

    We've stayed at Waterloo several times in 2017 since May. We've noticed some of the negative activity that has been posted in prior reviews. However, we have also observed that the staff, rangers, and hosts work tirelessly to keep things running smoothly. All are dedicated to the success of the park. The park is beautiful and is in very high demand in the summer months for camping as well as day use. The weekend crowds can push the facilities to their limits and tempers can flare up. Most of the problems that I observed could be avoided if visitors would odey the rules of the park, monitor their children's activities, keep their dogs on a leash, and be considerate of others. These problems are common everywhere, and are not the fault of the management. My suggestion is to try to visit during the week and avoid the crowds.

    WHATS UP

    WE SPENT AUGUST 24 THROUGH AUGUST 28 AT THE CAMP GROUND, WE HAVE STAYED THERE MANY TIMES THE PAST FEW YEARS. THE FIRST PART OF OUR STAY WAS ALRIGHT. I THOUGHT THERE WAS A LIMIT ON HOW MANY PEOPLE COULD BE IN 1 CAMPSITE. THERE WERE ALOT OF PEOPLE OCCUPYING A COUPLE OF SITES. ON SATURDAY NIGHT THEY WERE PLAYING LOUD MUSIC UNTIL 1 AM AND THEN A FIGHT BTROKE OUT. WE COULD HERE PEOPLE YELLING AND HITTING EACH OTHER. THE CAMP HOST WOULD NOT ANSWER HIS DOOR AND NO POLICE SHOWED UP. THIS WENT ON FOR QUITE AWHILE.IT IS TO BAD THAT SOMETHING WASN'T DONE. I DO NOT FILL SAFE WITH MY GRAND CHILDREN THERE ANYMORE. IT'S A BEAUTIFUL PARK AND I HOPE IN THE FUTURE THEY CAN FIND A RESPONSIBLE HOST.

    Linn County parks need to step in

    This is the 3rd summer we have camped here. We always reserved a spot in section A, but section B is shadier and less like a parking lot. We read the negative reviews and have to somewhat agree about the appearance of homeless folks down there with barely running loud cars in and out of the park. We actually witnessed what may have been an "us and them" situation between camp hosts of each section. We were approached wanting to know is we wanted to take home a couple of puppies that host in section B dumped off on host or someone who is staying in section A. Linn County parks dept needs to step in and clean up that section of the park I give section "A" an A+ and Section B a "D" it is scary down there, I would not feel safe camping there
