Campground Reviews

Stayed in a Kamping Kabin, pleased to have TV and Internet access. Only regret, Office on Sunday opens at 9:00 am, would prefer 8:30 am. Otherwise great!

Great time! Enjoyed the pool, putt-putt and 4 wheeling trails near by. My only suggestion is to fix the showers. The water pressure was extremely weak and the water would go from freezing to hot. Otherwise it was a great time.

Campground is great except some of the elect and water sites are on a steep hill that is difficult to get a large trailer up without spinning tires on the gravel.

The Kamper Kabin was clean, very pretty, and comfortable. The staff was helpful with any questions that we asked. This far exceeded our expectations. The swimming pool was well maintained & all of the cars/campers/tents were so nice - definitely no "junk." This campground seemed to have a much better class of people than most do. We liked it so much that we tried to stay an additional night!

Resvn bec.on-line photos, details & we orig. booked 7 nites @ this KOA. But left 3 days early due to a.m. noise,LOTS of mosquitos,& a run-down feel overall. Appeared all but maybe 8-10 sites are 'full-season' campers. Meant lots of diesel pickup trucks go to jobs beginning at 4:30-8:00 am,drove excessive speeds/noise road at our site & ruined sleep!3 large dogs off-leash =full timers spoil rating!

After waiting in the heat for about 20 minutes to be parked, the parking was highly in adequate.

Did not like the fact that a Pit Bull was in the campground. The rules say no Pit Bulls allowed. The site was clean and a good size. It was very quiet at night. Everyone was very pleasant and helpful. I could not level my coach because of the slope of the site.

Staff was very helpful. There was a problem with water pressure the first nite but was fixed the next day. Bath house was very clean. They had lots for kids to do. Loved the giant teeter totter.

Nice campground and good location as it is close to Canton attractions. Pull thru sites are tight with trailer and vehicle. Pool was nice and wife enjoyed the horseback ride.

Great time and family still talking about coming back next year.

We were completely dissatisfied with our stay. We rented a Kabin Nd they are located near the sewage treatment, every night when we returned the smell of the sewage was almost unbearable. One of the nights we stayed the electric to our "Kabin" was disconnected at midnight for an hour, the temperature was in the 90's, no one responded to the voicemail we left. No other contact #.

My family and I had a wonderful time. There were so many fun things scheduled for the kids to do. Thank you again Bear Creek.

wish they had more bathrooms and showers .

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

There are three different restroom and shower facilities located throughout the campground. They would have been pointed out to the person who checked in and they may have forgotten to show you on the site map.

We enjoyed our stay, but there were a few things that weren't ideal: 1) The kabin wasn't as clean as it was last year (eg, dried food on dishes). 2) The bed in the front room was more comfortable than the futon from last year but made it difficult to hang out when we weren't sleeping. But our neighbors were quiet and friendly and staff was responsive. We had a lovely time!
Jul 16, 2013
Good site back high on the lot line and quiet for us and our two dogs. Only there for one nite and up early to drive some more, but great breakfast pancakes and sausage prepared by owners themselves. Short stay but enjoyed the hospitality...Minnesota camper

The campground was nice.Things to do were very spread out. Tried to book for one night but was told it was a special week-end and had to book 2 nights. We needed a camp site and a cabin. So I said okay and booked two nights Friday and Saturday. We arrived on Saturday night around 5:00 PM, left Sunday morning at 8:30 AM. Total of 15 1/2 hours amd they made me pay for 2 extra adults for 2 nights.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

There is always a two night minimum on weekends and the base rate includes 2 people. Add'l adults are $10 per night and children age 3-17 years are $5. You were quoted these rates when you made the reservation and your deposit. I am sorry you were not able to arrive sooner.

Rainy season. This caused small inconveniences.
Jul 15, 2013
The stay was good only because the temperature was in the 60's at night and 70's during the day. Pwr at the 30 amp ped was 106 V, the 50 was 107 & 110. Using the wter heater the V drop t 103 V. Could not use the AC cause the compressor could only groan. At the high $ to stay one might think sufficient Voltage would be suppied.

Awesome stay except weather, need some work on water supply hookups at pull thru sites

It was nasty..showers gross!

This is the BEST KOA we have stayed at (and we have been to about 20 different KOAs over the past 15 years). The staff is ALWAYS available, and super friendly. Gina and her horseback riding adventures is the main reason we come, but the entire family is genuinely kind and caring! Thank you all, and maybe we'll see you again this summer!

We really enjoyed the family!

Well it rained the whole time which is not the campground's fault. We could not find anything to do. I did not know either that the campground was located below a dump. The staff was very friendly and helpful! Very peaceful setting except or the dump.

Carol nice to spend the night with you.

Thanks!

Not what we anticipated based on other KOA experiences, especially for the high price. Bugs in our Kabin & bedding were probably fleas. Thankfully they moved us to different lodging, which was great. Surprised that the 1st Kabin was rented out the next night! Wish there was a KOA closer to Amish; we are not part of the ATV crowd.

everyone was very nice. Grass areas were soggy, hard to walk the dog. Pavilion Karaoke was very loud. Fireworks ( from wherever) were kind of crazy loud, my dog didn't like that at all. This is why I asked if there were fireworks, and they said you had to drive to them, so I thought it was safe. But I don't believe the campground let them off, not sure. Other than that, it was clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It has rained for 13 days straight from a trace to several inches. The ground is very saturated. No fireworks were set off at this KOA. Some neighbors in the area did have them but we have no control over this.

Really great place. Setting is in country away but easy access to major highway.

I work for a municipal sewer district and was very disturbed that I had to smell your treatment plant each time I went outside. It was just like being at work! The pool was so dirty that I would not allow my 3 boys to us it. Finally, I do 90% of my cooking over an open fire and had to spend over $100 in firewood which compared to other campgrounds was way over priced.

Very hilly. Quiet after 10:30.Restrooms very clean. Really didn't like that we were in the shadow of a huge landfill.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The Countywide Landfill is a state of the art landfill which has been here for 12 years. There is no activity going on that is seen or heard at the campground. Our wells are tested every quarter by EPA requirement and reported to them.
Jul 02, 2013
The staff at the desk wasn't very friendly. The shower and toilet facilities were ok.
Jul 02, 2013
The smell from the treatment plant should not be there.
Jul 02, 2013
We had a great camp site, the people were friendly, bathrooms were good, we would camp there again.
