Great campground, the bathrooms could've been cleaner. The jumping mat was awesome, however the playground could be updated. Overall a good experience.

We enjoyed our stay. Loved the fact that we had our own bathroom a plus! If I could've wished for 2 things: the cabin to be fumigated before stay- scared spiders getting in our ears or biting when sleeping. 2nd a small garbagecan and a couple more towel racks. ...guess that was 3 :-) All in all geat stay! Will be back for sure

Just used cg as a base for exploring Pittsburgh and surrounding areas so didn't use outdoor facilities.

Cabins are close together and the bathrooms could use an update but are clean. We would stay again if in the area.

Had a deluxe cabin for four nights. It had a slight slant and the microwave turned itself on a few times so we unplugged it. People who worked there were friendly & helpful. Place was clean but not much to do there. I just think it was a bit "PRICEY" for what you get. The trailer sites looked too small and cramped and on top of each other as well as too close to the cabin we were in.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We replaced the microwave. We plan activities for every summer wkend, unfortunately everyone is busy and do not attend, and so it makes it hard to even have Bingo.

We stayed 3 days and were very happy with the park. The gals that checked us in were very helpful and pleasant.

Anytime I head west this campground is my first stop heading out and my last stop returning home. There are other campgrounds around but this one is great with nice sites and friendly and nice staff. Thanks.

This was not only the worst KOA I've ever stayed at, but one of the worst campgrounds period The site was so un level I raised the front oif the RV nearly two feet and still was not enough. The site was too narrow to open slides or the awning The bathrooms were run down and dirty. There were people partying loud after midnight and quiet time was not enforced

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

When we offer these sites, we remind that they are smaller for pop ups and smaller units. I live close to these sites but I did not know of any party problem. No one called us. Our restrooms have the old rustic look, but are kept very clean.

Would have been nice to have hay ride and other things offered

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had Tie Dye. Only 4 people showed for Bingo, so we couldnt play. We had the Pancake Breakfast. We couldn't use the tractor for a hayride :(

Doesn't deserve a one star. Awful stay

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Was a very full and busy wkend. We had a family reunion & church group here thoroughly enjoying the pool, pillow, and playground.

Arrived late and the KOA gal met us at the store with late check in information. Nice to see new paved entrance. Only stayed one night enroute Ocean City, MD, but had a quiet sleep over. stayed there on Memorial day and really liked park.
Aug 10, 2014
We were there one night enroute to Michigan. Easy to get in & out. Facility more than met our needs. Would stay there again.

The place was fantastic, very clean cabins & surroundings, but the ladies washroom was a bit of a mess hence I gave a 4 stars.
Aug 06, 2014
Staff was the best I have ever met. Sites however, about 10 feet between you and the next guy, including a 3 to 4 foot drop. So your table might be with your trailer, or it maybe 3 feet lower. Only stayed one night, and only used water and hydro. Used no pool, playground, fishing.

OK park. Large-gravel spots made it hard to get level.

Convenient stop over location. Easy to find. Great on-road signage. Staff was friendly. Pleasant grounds and setting.

Very nice place to stop on my travels. I always plan my trips to make this KOA one of my stops. I look forward to having some more time to camp here and spend some more time other then a one nights stay while I am headinf west. thanks for a nice place to spend the night. The people were very pleasant and helpful and I always enjoy my stat here.

The only restrooms were hot, muggy and filthy! Very disappointing for a KOA. I stayed here before, but not again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We DO have air in our restrooms. We had no comments on the heat in them. We have old fashioned restrooms that just appear dirty to some, but are cleaned regularly

Friendly and helpful staff, my grandkids love it, lots to do, keep up the good work!

We appreciated this campground's flexibility as they courteously accommodated a last minute change in our reservation. We needed to arrive a day earlier than expected and arriving late at night was no problem. This campground was clean and my family loved the "pillow" (trampoline)!!!! Even my huspand and I took a turn on it! It was a unique feature that we've not seen at other campgrounds.

Low voltage,109v, upon arrival in the afternoon when demand was high. Voltage returned to normal,120v, at night when park demand was lower. As a precaution, I did not use my air conditioning while voltage was lower than normal. I have burned up ac units before because of this.

Not sure of this situation? If he would have told us, we could have checked his pedestal, breaker.

There was no supervision for the pool and playground area, no extra stuff for the kids, and the cabin needs an overhaul, new couch, etc

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It is a fairly new couch; we see no problem with it. We had planned activities that weekend,the children didn't join in the afternoon. Enough just don't join in and then we can't play the evening bingo.
Jul 24, 2014
we have stayed at your KOA years ago and really enjoyed the family atmosphere. this time, there were not enough activities for the kids and there was nobody enforcing any of the rules. It seems like you have decided that the "seasonal pull throughs" are more important than the "campers". The cabins were not cleaned as we had to sweep our porch and deck and pick up trash left by whoever was there
Jul 22, 2014
had an amazing time. It was our 1st anniversary Debbie was nice to set up tables for Us. The staff was very nice. Even escorted one of my guess to our cabin. The place was clean with many things to do. . Our cabin was clean and everything in working order. Bingo nite was fun. We did the air pillow FUN! my husband will post it one day in his music video Rudiwumakeke on YouTube thx for the stay
Jul 22, 2014
staff friendly and helpful..horrible rainy weekend though,bathrooms great,the grounds had alot of trash around (fellow camper issue),campsite needs addressed, retaining wall coming down-VERY DANGEROUS!
Jul 22, 2014
Sites still unlevel but laundry room very clean. Bathrooms a must need for updating and deep cleaning.

Typical KOA on the side of a hill. Needs to be a bit more open to be truly big rig friendly.
