I must first say that we have coming here for a number of years. When we started coming here we had a average size camper (25-27ft) we didn't have any issues with the size of the sites, yes some of them were uneven but we made do. We used to come here on Paddlefest weekend and we usually had a... More

We stayed with our 2 youngest children (2 and 4) in a regular cabin (no bathroom) and used the bath house. It was pretty much as expected since we have been coming here for as long as they have been (since they were a KOA). I call these kind of accommodations "light camping" haha. Everything was ok except the bears.... More

If you're looking to get back to nature then this is the place. The trail around the lake was beautiful with lots of things to see. The staff was absolutely perfect. The campground was very clean including the sparkling clean restrooms. The chipmunks became my 2 year olds good friends. The deer walk right thru your site. Don't forget to... More

as usual rented a cottage at the back of the property next to nature trail as these cottages are on a hill overlooking the lake. Cottage very clean seemed like the shower was redone--hot forceful shower added to the experience. Mattress's are not good--you will feel the wooden support beams of the bed. BRING A BLOWUP MATTRESS to cover their... More

We booked a Cabin for our Stay and Play at the Water Safari. The Websites for both could be better. I am a researcher and really only got the "insider facts" from reviews. Driving through Old Forge was great. It is a very quaint walking town. Check In was fast and efficient. The waiver you sign regarding the Bears is... More

Thank you for your review Stacey. For future visits, we do offer overnight security, who can and do respond to any and all guest issues after the main lodge is closed at 10:00 pm. Their number can be located in the Gazette you are given and it is pointed out to guests at the time of check in. They could... More

My family of two adults and two teens stayed at this camp ground for two nights. The atmosphere was bustling and welcoming when I arrived to check in at the lodge in the rain. The woman who checked us in was patient and helpful as I weighed the option of changing from our tent site reservation to a cabin. We... More

This campground was wonderful. The staff was friendly and helpful, workers raked and cleaned campgrounds immediately upon checkouts, they came immediately when we called about an issue. The amenities are good - clean showers, nice store, laundry room, a pretty lake in the middle of the campground, though internet was only available at the office/store. Close to Old Forge, with...

Our family has been coming here for over a decade. The staff is friendly and courteous, especially Jim. The sites are clean and quiet. Water safari is within walking distance, or you can take a shuttle bus. Bears don't seem to be a problem if you keep food locked up, along with keeping your cars locked at all times. My... More

Thank you for the nice review. Our Halloween weekends are fantastic family fun for everyone, and foliage that time of the year can be breathtaking.

We camped at this "resort" this past weekend and boy we're we in for a treat. We checked in Saturday morning and set up our tents. After having an exhausting day of traveling to old forge, getting the camp squared away, swimming and hiking - we laid down to go to bed at around 11:00pm. That's when the fun begins... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our campground. A quick call to security could have resolved your issue with the late night disruptions from other people.
