this KOA is often our first stop east from Home. We will be back. A bit difficult entry and exit.

The ratings this campground had 9-8.5-etc hardly were accurate. The ground was not level and full of ruts, the electric posts were knocked around and the bathhouse was horrible. We paid $50 for nothing. We will not be back nor will we suggest our camping friends use this facility. Credit to gal at the front desk she did say we could move sites so we did and it was slightly better.

OK for an overnight stay. Bath house needs updating. RV sites are dirt/grass, difficult to get level.

Last night of 31 day journey through the West; bittersweet!

Beth was very helpful and knowledgeable. Campsite was nice. Security gate is broken and car passes are not given out. We had campers behind us who were very noisy until after midnight. We moved to another campground.

This was our 1st stay at KOA(Madison),we stayed 6 days in a Deluxe Cabin,which was perfect, clean and spacious for 2 adults and our son. As a whole from the Maint. crew to the manager DEBI made us feel at home. We will be back many times in the future. Thank You to all of you KOA Staffers.You made our vacation PERFECT!!!!

Clean, quiet, and nice people. Although our cabin had no space to park our van alongside the truck from the next door cabin- no big deal we parked it down the road- just involved a bit of maneuvering. Also, the office/store was very far from the campground itself which made it difficult to just wander over to ask questions or make purchases. Other than that- very nice.

We love the staff and we always feel like we're family when were there it's our home away from home best place in the world

Enjoyed the campground. Access to biking was excellent.

Rented a lodge for the weekend. Had to vacate it a day early due to a serious sewage backup right outside of our lodge. I know it could not be helped but the experience and smell and then packing up and leaving was not a pleasant experience. The manager refunded my 2nd night's stay.

Great stay except for the fact that their sewage pump failed during our last 3 days of the stay, so we could not use our RV's bathroom. Very clean campground with nice amenities.
Aug 09, 2016
Very convenient to PA turnpike. Bathrooms were ok; laundry was inoperable and we had planned to wash three loads! Argghhh!
Aug 09, 2016
Easy access to I 70 .Good stop over.

Not a smile on the checking staffs face. Immediately did not feel welcomed. Site 17 fairly level. Lousy tv cable even after switching cables and wifi wasn't "spotty", it was nonexistent. Never connected on any device. Went to do laundry. Guess what? Washers not available. For the lack of services I deserved a discount. Why was this KOA even open. I'll go to other KOAs, just not this one.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Brooke is most always happy? If Cable was a problem we could have tried changing our end connection to see if it was us, if notified us. Sometimes wifi is overwhelmed. We are very sorry you couldn't use the laundry room, we had an issue HAD to be addressed before we could open it up that eve.

Had a great stay, Very friendly staff

Our site , although big was very crooked. Had a difficult time leveling coach. Had to park at an angle to keep the wheels on the ground . Seems they need to do some maintenance and grading at the sites. Pretty park. Very friendly.

Pool was green. Jumping pad was broken. Light was out by our deck the first night (it was fixed). The rest of the site was poorly lit so we could see the steps walking off.
Aug 06, 2016
Very nice overnight visit. Cleanest laundry facilities we've seen at a koa. Excellent pet area. Only gravel sites, not real level, but hook ups are good.
Aug 05, 2016
Good campground with nice baths and good WiFi.
Aug 05, 2016
Not a great camp layout, with tiered steps for campers, but not bad either. I would stay (as an overnight waypoint) here again
Aug 05, 2016
I only stayed 1 night on a trip to the mid west. Everything was fine. Quick check in and friendly staff.

Very friendly and helpful, great RV Camping. Will be back!

It was a nice campground but the pool was dirty & slimy with green. Also some jumping thing for the kids was not available, as it was broke and awaiting a replacement delivery. Lot of pond scum too. The campground was clean and the people who worked there were nice. I didn't use the bathroom as we had our own.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It poured rain all day and unfortunately the pool turned on us. We addressed as quickly as we could and cleared it. We cant say we're sorry enough that the pillow broke :( we were sure to let all know coming in. The lake was over whelmed with rain run off and so appeared muddy.
Aug 02, 2016
This KOA was a disappointment. It is run down, the fishing pond is poorly maintained, and the swimming pool is green. Statements we were greeted with were: "The gate doesn't work." "The wifi is spotty." "The cable may not have all channels." I'm not sure how this establishment has kept their KOA status, but we will look elsewhere when camping in the Pittsburgh area.

Had a fun filled weekend with family! Won a game of Bingo and enjoyed the peaceful outdoors!!
Aug 02, 2016
other than walk to laundry, very great rainy day stay. Thank you

We have stayed at many KOA campgrounds and this one does NOT live up to the name. The pool is green, the bouncy pillow is out of order, the bathrooms were out of order, the campground is entirely on a hill of rocks, not a good experience. Those who gave this KOA a good review need to branch out and try some other locations. The ONLY positive is that its close to the highway. Will NOT be returning

unfortunately the pillow broke and we notified all. It poured rain all day Sat and unfortunately turned the pool and we did all we could to get it back on Sunday. Our bathrooms were never closed except for a quick cleaning that is posted on the door 12-2

I was very excited to stay at this KOA. They advertised hayrides, bounce pillow, pancake breakfast, .... We get there and no bounce pillow and no hayrides. Bingo costs money and so does the pancake breakfast. During the rain storm and after the campground smelled like sewage. Pool was not clear. Clean bathrooms. Very hilly. Campground gave us levelers to help level our camper.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

was very unfortunate the pillow broke,we notified all, and we tried to get a bounce house, but couldn't with the poring rain all day, and made impossible to wagon ride. we did our best to have activities in the pavilion. The rain turned the pool quickly, we did our best to clear it on Sunday.
Aug 02, 2016
We arrived after dark. There was no lighting to help find our site. Manager was very grumpy and rude. Sites are close together and on a hill making it difficult to maneuver. I would not recommend this KOA.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

no one knew you entered a NO RV section that time of night or we would have gladly helped you out! when arriving to your site you were very unhappy that night with the people below you for being on a site only you knew you would like. I only tried to clear the situation up the next day for our custo

We chose this campground for 3 reasons -The jump pillow -the pond -Wifi The jump pillow was broke and we weren't told about it until the night before. The pond was disgusting and nothing like the pictures, and the wifi was so bad it wouldn't connect. This play has gone way down hill since the Jones family sold it!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

it was very unfortunate for all of us that the pillow broke! We tried to get a bounce house in for the kids, but because of the rain all day it was impossible. And so that is why the lake was so muddy , from all of the rain water running in the lake. We tell all our WiFi is minimal, especially full.

Beautiful place. Site not as level as we would have liked.
Jul 29, 2016
Was a nice place we wished it had a pool .but nice... as KOA s are always good

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

:) we do have a pool at Madison Pgh KOA
Jul 28, 2016
Site was not the size they claimed it was upon reservation. There was only at most 5 feet between sites. Very cramped. Little to no shade. I was disappointed. Nice pool pond. Clean bathrooms.
Jul 27, 2016
Laundry room was outstanding, bathrooms good. Senery beautiful.
Jul 27, 2016
Great place to stay, with nice quiet settings.
Jul 26, 2016
Fortunately, this was just a stopping point for us for a few days while our son played in a ball tournament nearby. The place is very old and run down. Not good for bike riding. All up hill. Pool was small, but satisfactory. Jumping pillow was "out of commission". We rely on the KOA status a lot of times when searching for a campground , but this was very much below our standards.

Very nice campground. Set up early- t hen sent to Pirate game in Pittsburgh. Nice tent site. Quiet. Staff very accommodating. Would gladly stay again.
Jul 25, 2016
All was great - Critique: - Not ready for the mosquitoes in the tent site. (Told there weren't any.) Also, was not made aware, via phone, that the tent sites were not 'primitive' (I had asked) and therefore less expensive. Found this all out once we drove to the KOA and were too tired to drive elsewhere. Positive: The grounds are vast and lovely.
Jul 24, 2016
Great location.
Jul 23, 2016
We had a quick overnight. Kids loved the pool and park. Showers were clean and big. My only negative comment is the dock and boats for rent are unsafe and old.
Jul 23, 2016
Our stay wasn't bad,but it wasn't fun either. The jumping pillow was broken. Our cabin smelled like an outhouse. Please check out your sewage pipes. We smelled it outside near cabin 103. The cabin also had cobwebs throughout. I feel that during the summer there should be more things going on withing the campground during the week. Especially if you see that it's busy.
Jul 23, 2016
Staff should be more knowledgeable about local attractions like Fallingwater- you should send all there to see it to upsell it to campers
Jul 22, 2016
we enjoyed our stay and look forward to our next stay at Madison KOA
