Stayed three nights. Very quiet overall. Nice for kids. Play area is fun and safe. Lots of extras for nominal fee. Heard train once but it wasn't disruptive. Service was fair. Lots of younger adults/older kids "run" things. Gazebos are beautiful. Indoor pool is clean. Rules state no kids in hot tub but doesn't seem to be enforced. It was... More

Okay to start off. Location location location. This is terrible. Train tracks right across the street. Train goes by in the middle of the night -2:30-3:30. Hits horn 3-4 times. Wakes you up unless you are in a cabin with the a/c on. This equaled 3 nights of no sleep once you are awaken. Not fun if you have a... More

Our second time staying at this campground, second time is not a charm. Upon arrival we were greeted by a young woman who could care less about answering our questions. Her only interest was in getting us out the door. After setting up our campsite, I noticed the smell of sewer, thinking that maybe I didn't do such a great... More

We stopped by to visit my in-laws who were camping there and we paid $3.00 per person just to go thru the gate. We were only there 15 minutes so my review would be a negative number. Totally and I mean totally ridiculous just to stop by to visit!!!

We spent the weekend at the KOA and have stayed with them for the past 5 years. This year was the worst. The bathrooms are always dirty and there is never toilet paper, probably because the camp is run by teenagers. Never an adult in sight. One night the water pump broke and the camp was without running water. No... More

We actually visited in July 2015 and July 2014 for a week each time. Love this place. Close to many attractions. Quiet, shady spots. Lots of planned activities for the kids. Laser tag and the water slide were a big hit (extra $). The pool was nice and hot tub relaxing. Already planning our next stay.

Good family camping. Very nice campground and lots of fun stuff for the kids and a nice staff. There are some really nice campsites but they were more expensive than I wanted to pay. Nice indoor pool and cool bounce pad. There is a zip line but it wasn't open at the time we were there.

We spent 4 days here due to it's close proximity to Watkins Glenn State Park. While this campground does have some really nice amenities like the outdoor theatre, activities for kids, clean bathrooms and a lovely nature trail, we will not be returning and advise against staying here for several reasons: 1. The campground is located adjacent to a busy... More

Located very close to the race track, the convenience of that may offset the complete and utter absence of Wi-Fi that actually connects to the Internet, or complete absence of any cell signal or data for AT&T or T-Mobile users. (So, NO texting, NO phone calls, NO researching of area attractions, etc.) The park staff were friendly enough and the... More
