Campground Reviews

Jun 02, 2014
As long as there is a problem with the water, it is not a pleasant campground to stay and certainly not worth the nightly charge for a site.
Jun 01, 2014
Sites are very narrow

Very peaceful and pretty yet close to the burgh!

Here is another KOA with a great location to the interstate! The staff was helpful and accommodating. The sites were neat & a good size for pull thrus! Thanks KOA.

We were told the water connections had high levels of chlorine in it and were given free gallons of water. This was good but the bottled water had a way higher level of chlorine in them, we ended up not using them and used the RV filtered water! Otherwise nice park, on a hill so not great for bike riding. Nice pool area and fishing pond. Our site had an uphill sewer connection..:(

Not the greatest KOA campground I've ever stayed at, but it looked they were rennovating the bathrooms and it will probably be a much better place after the rennovation.

overpriced, not well maintained. restrooms in disrepair.

Most convenient to Pittsburgh, but interior roads are awful. Sites nice and level.

Pleasant receptionist but bath-house under renovation & no electricity until early morning.

Because of construction, things were a bit of a hassle. But getting better. Lots of good activities. Friendly staff. Great deal because of special weekend.

Cabin was clean and site was OK. Men's bathroom/shower still reeks of raw sewage. Good thing I didn't drink the water before I saw the notice in the KOA office the next day. Oh, and 10:40 a.m. is too late to show up for the 9-11 a.m. (and poorly advertised) pancake breakfast, as they've already dumped the batter. Been here several times and this was the last time I'll be disappointed by this KOA.

Everything was great, I was disappointed in the puddles by the gate.

We had some intermittent power issues, but the place was packed, so I'm sure that contributed. Great people, great times!

The cabins and the layout is very nice, staff friendly. The bathrooms even after upgrade smell and are the worst KOA bathrooms I have ever run across. The covered the walls with metal for some reason

Mother's Day weekend. Lot of work going on but the people working there were great.
May 10, 2014
bathrooms were the worst standards for KOA

The staff was very nice. The grounds were not. We were given apologies for the over chlorinated water, the bathhouse in repair, and the fact that our reserved site was taken by another camper. We had to deal with a very uneven base for our trailer and a noisy camp site after quiet hours.

Madison/Pittsburgh KOA Truly memorable. Free SD cable. Friendly staff; seldom seen, office seldom open. Water not fit to drink (EPA PWS 5650449). Overflowing dumpsters. Too many potholes to count. Free wifi; with limited or no connectivity. Large laundry; without iron or board. Now Im at another RV park with good water  how long do I need to flush my RVs water system before I can drink fro

Restroom under renovation and could only use Men's restroom which was not very nice. Water full of clorine and could not drink it. Muddy..Staff gave us free water to drink. Should have been told prior to making reservation.

At check-in I was told the women's bath house was out of service. I asked where I was supposed to go. She said don't you have one in there? And you don't need a shower if you're only here 2 nights. We were also told to boil water and given 1 gallon of bottled for 4 adults to use for 2 days. No one was in the office for much of our stay.

Bad pot holes at entrance. No one on duty at 4 pm. Very noisy neighbor until 3 AM. Nice walk around lake for pups.

They were in the middle of renovating the bathrooms so they were a mess and really should not have been open. It is great to see improvements but in the times we were there we didn't see anyone working on them. Some of the KOA campgrounds we have used recently have not been up to the quality that they were advertised to be.

A little early in the season to really gauge. There are a lot of non-campers staying (gas industry workers)

You might consider obtaining a "box scraper" for the tractor that you already have. A box scraper does a wonderful job of leveling parking sites and driveways.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Women's bath house was being renovated and saw dust was everywhere. I understand it was in renovation but it could have been swept.
Apr 14, 2014
They took our money for the week , then told us that the water had Ecoli in it! That campground should not even be open to the public until that matter has been taken care of!!
Apr 12, 2014
arrived around 4 and no one was there. Spot was nice but never saw any employees or owners.

The infrastructure and lots are very nice. Unfortunately the traffic from the workers that live in the park was annoying. about 70 percent of the lots. 7 days a week for 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours at night all you heard was diesel trucks coming and going. I don't think this represents KAO's mission.

It was one of the worst winters in 20 years. And I made it threw just fine there at the KOA . Thank you to the people working there. I was there from 11/1/2013 threw 3/22/2014.

Wonderful! We didn't arrive until late in the evening due to bad weather, but everything was ready and waiting. Even the heaters were on and the place was nice and toasty:)

Never saw a live person (manager). Speed limits were NOT enforced (I love having dust with my food). Really unimpressed especially after having a fantastic stay at an different KOA.

Cabin was well-heated when I arrived. Outside lighting could be improved, as the walk from parking to the front of the cabin can be tricky in the dark. Surprising number of stinkbugs, considering the sub-freezing weather.

We had good stay and there was things for the kids to at least do while we were there. The only thing we would change is it was not easy to find the campsite. The way we were told to go into the site as not well marked so that we could find the road leading to our site and then the numbers were not well visable to find the correct site.
