Beautiful camping nestled in the Pennsylvania hills near the Laurel Highlands. Clean, friendly, nice playground and pretty lake with rental boats.

VERY CLEAN. The cabin was lovely, and the staff was kind. The pumpkin patch up the road a bit was a nice find. We were sad to see the amount of feral kittens running around, we left out boxes with blankets in them during our stay, but had to take them away as so our cabin didn't look unkempt when we left. Luckily, the lady at the front desk told us they're attempting to trap and rehome them.

The staff was very friendly. The store was well stocked. It had a nice family atmosphere.

I was a little isolated in the tent area across from woods. It was pretty dark at night. The tent area was flat. Bathrooms clean, showers clean. staff was very accommodating and pleasant. Nice pond. easy to find location. about 45 to 1 hour drive to city of Pittsburgh. about 30 min to Connellsville where I rode part of the GAP trail. Nice stay.

I've been staying at this KOA for years love the camp site. On this visit I needed propane and of course propane is available, and several signs speak to the availability. However, I was advised that no one was available to provide this service (that's after I waited 30 minutes for someone to arrive). I was told I could go a few miles up the road and get this service. This is NOT what I expected.

We are very sorry we disappointed you. We don't have someone on grounds who can pump propane 24 hours.

Hilly, dusty and had high power lines overhead that affected our dog. Bust staff was friendly when checked in.

Good sewer, water, and electric hookups. Site was fair. But, the campground looks poorly maintained and is dominated by seasonal and/or long term campers. Many cluttered and shabby looking RVs and campsites. Highly rated campgrounds set standards that prevent what prevails at this KOA. OK for overnight site while traveling, but not a place I would recommend for multiple nights.

Small sites (by today's standards). Barely room for truck & camper. Bathrooms were ok.

The cabin was filthy and smelled horrible. I did not sleep at all and left as soon as sun came up. Garbage truck picked up large trash containers at 1am! I realize the no frills kabins are minimal but I have stayed at koa in Niagra falls and that cabin was clean and very close to well lit bathroom. The cost for that one? $43 I feel like a sucker for paying $62 for this mess.

Too many full time workers with their extremely noisy trucks going in/out all day, especially bothersome at 4-5am. If you want that business they should be in their own area where they won't ruin the stay of your weekenders who are out for peace and quiet and enjoyment. You need a separate exit/entrance for them.

We had an Airstream caravan so we were full. We explained their site was off the bottom. I am very sorry we didn't know that he didn't have a table :(

A perfect stay all the people are helpful and nice breakfast was good and everyone had fun at bingo the cabin we had was clean and ready for us. We will be back again next year in the bigger cabin again thanks again koa madison pa

Clerk did not say internet was an extra cost. Just said to follow the directions. Paying was not a problem--not being told at check in was. Clerk said it would take an extra hour if he explained everything when checking in. Nasty clerk attitude.

This is not our campground. We don't have pay internet or a gentleman behind the counter

the staff was incredibly friendly. The kids had a blast. I wish we could have stayed longer.

The biggest issue was a pervasive septic smell where we were camped beside a small stream at 109.

The campground - facilities and employees were all wonderful but......there were too many unsupervised and unruly (some of them very young) children for the visit to be pleasant. Also our site seemed to be the shortcut to somewhere as there was a steady parade of above mentioned children between our camper and picnic table.
