Clean, friendly KOA. This was our first time staying at a KOA. Lots to do for the family. The Hosts are really putting a lot into this site. Especially after talking to many campers who have been there in past years. Pull through sites are great! We stayed I section D. Close to everything. Almost did not walk over to... More

Watkins Glen-Corning KOA served as our inaugural trip for our new 5th wheel. We booked a deluxe full hookup pull through site. It had a concrete patio with picnic table flowers and light. It was a really nice sight and you there was more than enough room between you and the nearest camper. The park was very clean and quite... More

Spending a weekend with friends and visiting wineries. Beautiful campsite, friendly neighbors, lots of amenities including indoor pool and spa. Very close to many sites and must go into Montrous Falls for breakfast at The Harvest.

A lot of pull through spots although none available for our stay. Very clean with lots of amenities. The upgraded patios have built in firepits. Our spot was tight for a 40' fifth wheel but able to back straight in so its a nice private spot.

We believe that our experience was likely out of character for this resort. We are sharing it because no one at the campground asked us about our stay or talked to us about the problems that we had. We travel to many KOA's and have seen what other locations have done. Our experience was not up to KOA standards. We... More

This KOA is all that it claims to be. Chock full of activities and fun for families with children near the front of the campground. A more quiet area near the back for older folks like my husband and I. Perfect blend and balance. Staff are friendly; place well maintained and clean - everything from the grass cut to the... More

Before I booked the reservation I called and asked if the tent sites were kind of secluded...they said yes they were. That was definitely a lie! The sites were right out in the open. Our tent was set up and had literally two feet between the tent next to us of someone we didn't know. There were not any trees... More

I have both tent camped and stayed in a cabin at this KOA. Both were good experiences. They have the best (indoor!) swimming pool I have ever seen at a campground or even a hotel. The facilities were well maintained and fairly clean. They have a badge access security gate to keep out non-campers which was easy to use. I... More

My family of 6 went to the KOA for an extended weekend and when it was time to leave the kids didn't want to leave. We rented one of the delux cabins and it was clean, well stocked, had air conditioning and cable tv. We are planning on returning next summer with friends.

We have to give this place the benefit of the doubt for RV campers. It appears to have lots to do. And the girls at the reg desk were VERY sweet. But - the tent sites, which are limited, are very small and have little to NO privacy. We don't need to be absolutely secluded- but one of our options... More
