Pet Policy

Mercer/ Grove City KOA welcomes well-behaved pets and their humans.  We expect pet owners to be courteous of the rights of others to a safe, clean, and comfortable camping experience. Pets that are hostile or aggressive will be asked to leave the campground, along with their owners.  All pets must remain on a leash no longer than 6 feet when out on the grounds, except inside the doggy playground.  Please, do not leave your pets unattended and always remember to clean up after them. Constant barking bothers other guests. If your pet is too vocal, you'll need to find other accommodations.

Pool Hours

Pool Hours are 10AM - 8PM.

Quiet Time

10PM - 8AM. Please allow others to get a good nights sleep.

Speed Limit

5 mph Please drive like your kids or grandkids live here.


Please do not bring firewood into the campground. If you do, you will be asked to keep it inside your vehicle and remove it from the property immediately.
Firewood is available for purchase. $7 for one bundle, $20 for 3 bundles, and $30 for 5 bundles.This wood has been heat treated by a DCNR certified supplier and kiln dried to kill off any insects or disease.

They give you shade. They provide oxygen. Please help keep our trees available for future generations.

Pests traveling in outside firewood, or pallets, have killed off hundreds of trees on the property.
Wood that looks clean and healthy can still have tiny insect eggs, or microscopic fungi spores, that will start a new and deadly infestation.
Aged or seasoned wood is still not safe. Just because it is dry does not mean that bugs can't crawl onto it!
So please, don't bring firewood into the park, even if you think it looks fine.

Thanks for understanding why we can't allow outside firewood, and for helping us save the remaining trees on our property!
