My family and I stayed at this campground for a long weekend in a travel trailer. The positives about this campground included a nice heated pool, large pull through sites, made to order breakfast on the weekends, clean bathrooms, and friendly staff. There were some...More

This KOA was ok. The staff was not very friendly at all.Ground is covered in gravel it was like camping in a parking lot. Staff drives around in golf carts everywhere. If they got out and walked they might have been in better shape. Also...More

Check-in was easy, grounds and facilities were very clean and everyone was friendly. The kids’ activities were some of my kid’s favorites (jump pillow, ga-ga ball, awesome playground with both old-school and new equipment). Beautiful, quiet campground with gorgeous old trees.More

Pretty good campground, this was our second time back (July 2018). The Pros: Nice large sites, pull through a little more expensive but that is expected Very clean. Cable pretty good, limited channels though. Good water pressure. Very quiet. Close to the lake, good pizza...More

This KOA has well ordered campsites, a clean office, camp store, restrooms, laundry, pool, and many other activities. It's obvious that the staff takes great pride in this campground. $60 a night for renting 260 square feet of camp space seems high to us old...More

We have camped at your campgound for years and now told we are not welcome due to the dog we have, She is a boxer,terri and most likely pitt. and heinze 57, She minds extremly well and is always on a leash when out with us,All she likes to do is lick people. She stays when told and rarely and I meaqn rarely barks. but we were told due to the pitt we could no longer bring her due to your insurance, Inthe years we have been coming there we diefinatetly have seen other dogs running, barking and hard to controll. Many children running amuck needing supervision but arent. So my question, why does your insurance prohibit a nice quiet well behaved dog with no history of biting people when othe dogs such as a terrier ,who can be very hard to control ,and kids with parents who want staff members to do the parenting be accepted. As many years that we have been going up there do you really thinbk we would bring a dog that we aren't able to control? By the way this dog loves kids and people. Same to lose our membersip do to someones lack of education on these types of dogs. Loren & Teresa Shaeffer 1700 Snoke Lancaster Ohio
