I love this place. I wish there were more opportunities to stay in cabins during psu weekends. I can never get in any as always Booked.

The nicest part of the stay was the bathrooms and the wash sink area for your dishes. Tent sites are way too small. You should not have to sit on top of the fire ring with your tent right there. We rented another site next to us just to have space for the table and fire ring, plus there is not much to do in the area as well. This KOA is not my cup of tea and I have stayed at many in my time.

It was very nice. The tent grounds were a bit uncomfortable but hey it is what it is when you rough it.

Had an awesome time at a clean and friendly campsite! Too bad PSU couldn't pull out a win! We'll get them next time! Let's go State!

Wonderful stay as always. Very quiet grounds and very clean and warm bathrooms. Thank you!

Our campsite was under water/mud due to the record amount of rain and all other campsites were sold out. However the employee worked to find an area for us to camp on the premises which was nice since we were there over the weekend for a college football game.

Staff is friendly, primitive camping site is perfect. Had a slight issue with bathroom doors not locking and a brief period without light in any of the bathrooms.

Facility is beautiful, sites are great size. We know it is hard to keep up with the restrooms but they were out of paper towels, often very dirty during our 3 day stay. Overall it is a great lodging option where maybe non-single bathrooms may work better like we have seen at other koa’s.

Great time except the bathroom situation near the no hook up tent sites is not ideal. There is always a long line for showers in the morning. It would be better if there were a combination of private and communal rooms to keep people moving.

Great, clean campsite with an incredibly helpful staff. We will definitely be back.

Overall it was an okay experience. The large groups respected quiet hours, staff were friendly, and it seemed very kid friendly. It bugged me the trash that was left in sites around us an not cleaned up for 4 days until someone booked the site for the night. The showers were not cleaned the entire week we were there until our last night. I know because of the trash I saw every day in the shower.


I'm sorry to hear about your concerns with the KOA you stayed at, however the one you're describing couldn't be ours as your reservation here was only one night long.

I’ve been touring the United States from Portland, Oregon to here by bicycle. I’ve stayed at about 10 KOA campgrounds. Some very good, some bad. This has been my hands down favorite. Great campground!

The kids enjoyed the activites, tent sites were nice and level. Check in times should be limited, a moving truck pulled in to tent sites at who knows what time. The truck had a back up beeper. They were trying to pull up by the site then finally gave up. Very disturbing in the hours just after midnight.

Very well maintained!!! Loved the planned activities for the children!!! Especially liked the individual bathrooms. Definetely will be staying again. Thank You

We really enjoyed the campground and will definitely come back! The staff was very friendly and helpful. New bathrooms near the tent sites and bright lights installed at the tent sites are great features. The other campers were very quiet - no parties or loud music. Overall, the camp was extremely well maintained, although the open kitchen by the tent sites could be maintained better.

Great stop for the night with a small child because of pool and playground. Campsite was littered, though, which was a little gross. Garbage and marshmallows all over the place. Perhaps you might urge campers to clean up after themselves or else hire someone to clean campsites?

Outstanding place! The drive in was fantastic with some great scenery. We used the BBQ to cook dinner and the sink to clean up. The bathrooms were clean and the showers were very good with individual rooms. The staff was very nice and had good advice!!

I booked a tent site to stay a few days with my 15 year old while we toured penn state. We were so impressed with how beautiful the campground was and how friendly everyone was. The pool was immaculate and it was great that they had so many activities planned. My daughter loved catching fireflies at night. Thank you!

Excellent KOA with reasonable camping fees, instead of the Krazy Outrageous Amount so many others charge. Best bathroom with private shower, a nice outdoor kitchen for those tenting it. Other than the wafting smell of cow dung that arrives on the wind from a nearby manure farm, this facility is top notch.

Well maintained. Kid and family friendly. Loved the deluze patio sites. Recycling items should be expanded. Fun weekend activities. Helpful and knowedgable staff.

This family run KOA is the best thing going for family camping. They offer many activities including hayrides and movies and have a trampoline, volleyball and badminton nets and swimming pool. But the best part of this KOA is the family who runs it and their attention to each campers comfort and fun. I have been camping here for many years and could not recommend more highly!

We were very pleased with the service, cleanliness of the bathroom and the many activities planned. The staff is very hardworking, especially an older lady with short gray hair...a super trooper!

We stayed at the Bellefonte KOA a few years ago and was so impressed, we booked again this past weekend. The additions of the deluxe cabins, kitchen area and children's kangaroo bounce well improved the campgrounds to a facility that was already great to begin with. The kids LOVED the hayride and the bubble/soap activities!
Jul 09, 2018
Great facilities, activities, and friendly staff. Location is also great, closed to State College and Amish Farms. Close to Bald Eagle State Park which has a nice beach and many other water activities.

Very quiet, easy access, clean, convenient office hours. Tent sites NEED larger level areas.

We had a great time! The kids love the bouncy pillow, playground, and sport courts! The bathrooms are nice & clean. The staff is helpful and courteous! Definitely would return �
