Very clean and comfortable.

The only complaint we had was we were early to check in, forgetting about the hour time change and we were told to go clear back to the Visitor Ctr rather than tell us to go to town, which we did on our own. We just parked on a street and had our lunch in the camper. We did notice as we left the campground there were many empty spots that had no vehicles on them. otherwise it was nice.

Campgrounds nice and clean. But they didn't have a handicap accessible pool. This would be nice for kids and adults with handicaps or just getting older. Steps and a rail is always nice for safety as well.

Wish we could have stayed longer. Beautiful area.

Everything was good except for the girls on the desk in the evening. We could not find NBC and when I told them that the list they gave us was not correct, they implied that I had not loaded the channels properly, but after reloading the channels, we still did not have NBC. They were of no help.

Great Park with excellent staff. The only drawback was that the spaces were a little tight. Other than that, we really enjoyed our stay.

I loved that we were given a shady site. The temp. that day was 95 degrees. All the employees were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the pool, and the breakfast and supper at the cafe. Everything was neat and clean.

Just one comment, in the women's bathroom in the satellite building, one of the bathroom doors did not close.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

So sorry that you had a problem with the bathroom door. Our maintenance staff has taken a look at that and it seems to be functioning well now.

One of the best campgrounds we have ever stayed at! Great for all kinds of campers - from the biggest rig to the most primitive tent camper. Shade everywhere - very unusual in this area. Very friendly staff - special kudos to John, who was FANTASTIC with not just friendliness and helpfulness, but going above and beyond to share ideas on where to go and making our stay so pleasant!!

The campground is very comfortable, with lots of trees, roomy sites, clean bathrooms and pool, and welcoming hosts. We enjoyed our stay very much. Thanks for all of your hard work!

Our family of 5 stayed at this KOA for 3 nights. The staff was super helpful and friendly. The whole place was clean. As tenters the dishwashing station was very helpful. We had two tents for my wife and I and our three kids. The staff helped us find a site that would work well with having two tents. We'd stay here again.

Wish we could've stayed longer. Next time we will!

Very nice campground although our site had an issue with ants. Despite having dryers, I wish they could allow us to use clotheslines.

It was nice. But compared to Erie not nearly as kept up. And not the koas fault but the bathrooms were misused at night and made a very unpleasant experience leaving. Mosquitos seem uncontrolled.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so sorry that you experienced an issue in the restrooms. As soon as we were made aware of the situation, our cleaning staff took care of it. We have had significant improvement in the mosquitos in recent weeks due to drier weather and our mitigation efforts.

Kabin camping made all the difference, the air condition was a must in the triple digit heat. Lack of food options and restrooms keeps this at 3 stars.

I'm sorry you missed out on our delicious Indian Tacos!

The actual grounds are very pretty. But our Deluxe Cabin was NOT deluxe.. Floors were filthy- had to sweep all the dirt/hair out and lots of ants were in the bathroom. Very disappointed! Swimming pool was nice and the breakfast food we purchased was good..

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry that your stay did not meet your expectations. Our cleaning staff has been made aware of your comments. We have not seen any ants, but have taken steps to prevent them in the cabins.

A Great place to stay and relax. The staff was fantastic! We were here in 2001 and now in 2014 and its even better now !
Jul 21, 2014
Great campground. Friendly and helpful owners and staff. Well worth driving the extra distance to stay here. First class operation with a fully stocked store and clean and well kept grounds and amenities. Highly recommend the Indian Tacos!

The campground itself was pleasant enough, and I liked the selection of books in the store. However, I had trouble accessing the WiFi, and I couldn't get cell phone reception. Also, the miniature golf could use some updating.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm sorry that your stay with us did not meet your expectations. Unfortunately, we have no control over your cell phone carrier's service. We have installed a cell hot spot that is able to help some get reception. We have taken a look at the mini golf and updating is taking place right away. Thanks
