Tent Reviews

Great site! Brand new construction - very well thought out, except the parking spot is very small. Even with a small car we'd have had to park on the campground road if we were to have a fire where the fire ring is. No big deal. Bathrooms were well lit and clean throughout the whole week. The newly constructed covered picnic table with the light, water, and electric was fantastic. We love OH!

I got there much later than planned and the owner was kind enough to leave all the info I needed for my stay somewhere accessible. The gentleman working security was just that, a complete gentleman. I am a woman traveling on my own and I could not have felt safer. The bathrooms and showers were so clean. Amazing value and great people. Thank you so much!

Absolutely so much fun! Helpful staff, nice tent site. Even pouring rain and a lightning strike that knocked out the power for a bit could not dampen our enthusiasm. Great time!

The staff working behind the counter at check in was so nice to us!

There was so much arguing and cussing going on parent's not watching their kid's. Babies getting out of tents walking up and down the rd. Adults cussing at my kid's walking pass and in the pool. I use to love bringing my family here been coming for year's but this last visut was very uncomfortable

Great place..pool and game room and camp store are great..staff is top notch..We like to camp in the primitive section and spend a day or two in the a tv trails a mile up the road(or ten miles around the holler if the flood closes the road down)..always a great weekend at Bear Creek

Facilities were clean, campsite was clean, only problem was that the road seems to close often due to rain which was an inconvenience getting to the ATV riding area, but great trip otherwise.

The staff was very friendly and knew every answer to my questions. We had the only tent so it was nice picking any spot we wanted. We stayed last year in a cabin. Bear creek is a beautiful place to stay and I'm happy they have extra activities on the weekends to keep people busy. We can't wait to come back in a few weeks!

You should probably call this an RV park and discourage people from staying in tents. The tent sites are super small and in an open field with no shade and no privacy. The facilities near the tent area are old and not clean so you'll have to walk to the facilities near the RV's. The playground is neglected, old, falling apart and dangerous for small children. Don't go here with small children.

This was a very pleasant stay. Though a couple areas for improvement, maintenance on the mini golf course and rules enforcement. There was a group on our second night being obnoxiously loud and using the pool all night long. It would've been nice to have someone on site policing this type of issue. Otherwise we had a great time. We enjoyed all of the amenities offered.

My first time staying at any KOA. Real nice facility, well kept. Clean bathrooms and super friendly staff. I stayed on a campsite on the ball field, the camp site was just right for a big tent. Only complaint and why 4 stars, was the pool staff blasting Ozzy at 8am and singing along to it. Would have liked to slept a little longer and woke up on my own terms.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed your stay. We have spoken to our staff about playing their music and waking up folks. Believe me, it won't happen again!

In general, it was good. We weren’t able to enjoy any activities except the pool. Our site was on the “ball field”. I recommend that staff update maps/relabel campsites in that area. We were given a campsite that didn’t appear to exist. Rather than leave the office and investigate, we were told to just pick an empty site. Also, as a “primitive” site we were not told where to find water

I had already written a review. Problems: WiFi and people smoking at the pool.

The staff were very helpful, especially when my tent leaked like a sieve the first hour I arrived. Friendly, focused, relaxed... I've only been in 2 other KOA's before, and I don't remember exactly what they were like. The office/store was at East Sparta was nice to have. The only reason I wouldn't rate it higher is the lack of hiking places.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am glad we were able to offer you a nice kamper kabin when you found your tent leaked. We have trails all around the lake and are minutes away from the Towpath Trails which run from Bolivar to Cleveland Ohio. We have maps in the KOA Store showing you the trails.

Exceeded expectations

We had a great time! Just wish there were spots closer to the fishing pond and with more shade. I wouldn’t do the hayride again. The driver had to keep stopping to get off and on to open and shut gates and you could see the nervousness on his face every time there was bump he had to go over, watching the wagon. Made us all uncomfortable. It was free so not complaining just not again. Overall gre

We had a nice stay staff was super friendly and helpful. We were able to pick our site which was helpful cause we had multiple cars and a trailer full of atv's and still had space for 2 big tents . We will definitely be back for another visit very soon . Thank you guys keep up the awesome work

People that had dirt bikes and atv's rode them until past 3am very noisy and rude.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The ATV's and Dirt Bikes were NOT staying at the KOA Campground - the inconsiderate people were riding up and down the public road which does not normally happen. Sorry for your inconvenience.

Staff was very kind and helpful. Pool, miniature golf, horse rides are awesome amenities. Overall enjoyed our stay. We tent camped and did not find an easy source of water to fill water bottles/wash dishes near the tent sites as we have found at other KOAs. Also bathrooms in the game building need serious remodeling, the ones at the main bldg are clean & updated

It was good. Originally, we were in a field. We ask for a different site and were given the one we wanted. The grounds are nice and there are lots of things to do. Our only issue were the lack of camping in treated areas. We tent camp and are used to camping in wooded areas.

we had a great stay but we were on a budget and the firewood was not included for 3 bundles a day @8.50=25.50a night Larger bundles or we are from florida we do not have the ash borer problems so maybe depending on were guest are from should make the decision for the firewood. Thank you and if we get that way again we'll see you all.

This is... hands-down- the nicest campground I've EVER been too! And I have been to many! The shower rooms are immaculately clean!!! The employees are extremely pleasant and helpful, and they offer lots of different fun activities for the whole family, above and beyond the mini-golf, fishing, clean pool, dance party, playground, and awesome game room!! Great place to stay!!

Friendly great fun we also fell in love with the atv park we visit every weekend, love the horses and paddle boats.

This is our second stay here this year. First stay we had our toy hauler and motorcycles. Our camper got damaged at the last minute and we had to travel without it. Bear Creek got us in a cabin for the week with a last minute call. Cabins are nice and they are clean plus they are pet friendly!! Great place to stay. Love the gas fireplace and so did my wife's dog!
