Pool not working. No lead to site, showers/restrooms could use an update.

7 day stay. While larger sites were available, we had an extremely small site. Our standard patio mat extended into the next site down a bank. Roads need work.

people drive way to fast thru out this campground. camp store is really lacking supplies. Love the dog run and the lady at the desk when I checked in was great. Road coming in and out way to many bumps.

Pool was closed because of an accident. That was a great disappointment once it was a super hot summer day. The site we stayed at with the RV #78 didnĀ“t have a good sewer system. The water kept running out of the pipe. Not good at all.

This was our 9th visit this beautiful campground. The previous owner were very good, but the new owners are fantastic. The did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. We can't thank them enough.

cabin #97 was awesome. The view was great and the extended porch (due to the angle of the cabin) was excellent. The bathrooms left a lot to be desired. The first night I wanted a shower and the bathroom smelled and the floors were wet, the second day was okay, and the third day the bathrooms were out of order because they were all backed up.

Very nice campground and very friendly staff.

A slightly better stay. Ran into a difficulty using my VKR points as a discount upons checking in, but it all worked out OK. July 4 karaoke was fun. Unfortunately, men's restroom flooded yet again, making it impossible to use. Staff seems frustrated over this recurring problem. Hope to return when all is fixed.

An OK stay. I probably had the least-favorite cabin (#98) as it had very poor lighting at night and no readily available water source (neighboring cabins did). Also, my cabin had no picnic table upon check-in (they delivered one on the second day), while all others did. Sewage system in men's room was bad. Staff is nice, but often distracted.

The tent sight I was on needs a new platform. Everything else was fine.

Toilets and showers were not clean. Bugs crawling everywhere. Site was too low to allow easy dump access. Dusty and pool was closed indefinitely. Plus at $54 it was no bargin.

We never stayed here. Extended our stay at Virginia Beach KOA which was awesome and drove straight Home

Worst KOA I've been too, bathrooms not cleaned nor very good to begin with (they clogged ontop of it and were useless for part of the stay no apology etc, pool had issues and was closed for part of the stay, just generally not a good campground let alone a KOA. Can't believe they won a Presidental Award 15 years ago. Wonder who they bribed.

There was a lot to keep my children occupied with the playground, pool, jumping pillow (their favorite), and lake. However, the bathrooms were often clogged and extremely dirty. The campground also had a sewage smell especially around the lake. The lake was pretty gross and nobody was receiving any bites/catches. There was no grass around any of the sites and it was a muddy mess after the rain

Cabin sites are too close together. Neighboring campers had to walk across out site in order to reach their cabin site. A very cramped campground. We left a day early and stayed at a nearby hotel. No more KOA stays for us.

Great staff, very nice. The place itself was pretty dirty - the lake filthy, the rental boats unattended for days, bits of trash here and there. The site itself is very nice if not too crowded. Great pool.

Only stayed 1 night, passing through. Facilities were good, enjoyed the small pool.

Problem with cable TV but this was not the campgrounds fault

We had a nice stay and hope to enjoy this and other koas in the future. Love the cabin. This was our first time. The camp itself seemed a little tired and old in spots, but clean, very clean. I appreciated that.
Jul 01, 2013
We love KOAs but this one was a real disappointment. The staff was wonderful, I should point that out right away. BUT the place overall needed to be cleaned desperately! The lake was filthy and had garbage and dozens of filthy water balloons floating in it. The boats were filthy. Bathrooms could use a bleaching and on & on.

Too much like a trailer park. Too many long term workers. Not a campground feel. Laundry inconvenient. Access to Pittsburgh too lengthy.

roads Are Bad, NarroW, And Sites Are Not Well Suited For Larger Rigs. Also Had Neighbors Who Partied Well Past Midnight, And We Had Items Ztolen From Our Site.

Very family oriented campground. However children were allowed to operate gas powered vehicles on the roads within the campground which I think is unsafe.
Jun 30, 2013
Roads were dirt. No lights around campground. Small pool-not very clean. Not really what we expected of a KOA.
Jun 30, 2013
The restrooms were clean. We did not use the pool or other facilities, it was just an overnight stop.

Internet service was very poor!!!!!!!

Staff was great, helpful. Site was slightly uneven but no problem. All services were fine

Beautiful setting. Close to highway. Needs a little road work but very nice overall.

Unlevel site. Sewer connection elevated too high -- up on the site of the hill and was higher than the campsite.
Jun 27, 2013
Great staff, had problems with my Motor Home and needed emergency 911 and firemen to check out a possible gas leak. All clear but the staff and KOA campers were all very helpful and supportive. So happy you were there in our time of need. Steve Di.

Ok, internal roads could be improved...level sits. Trash pick up a problem. Great laundry...a little pricey though. Institute a recycling program to help with the trash situation.

Great cabin

Employees were very nice and helpful. The shower house could be updated and the laundry needs to have 24 HR access.
