We just got back from staying a few nights there. We stayed in the wilderness area in a tent. I liked the sites there since they were in the woods, and not crammed together. The site was level, but with some rocks, and there was a water spigot right next to us. Sites come with a picnic table and fire ring, and they will deliver firewood, ice and pizza to your site at no extra charge. When we got there they bring you to your site. The employees were all very helpful.
The bathrooms were extremely clean, I think almost everytime I went in there there was someone cleaning them. There are individual free hot showers, with a little bench and hooks to put your stuff. I liked the double sink for dishwashing that they provided.
The kids loved the heated pool. It was small and sometimes got crowded, but they had a great time. I wouldn't say there were a ton of activities like other camgrounds, some mornings they didn't have anything, but we stayed during the week so that is somewhat to be expected. We didn't see the movie because it wasn't one that we wanted to see, they had one night of it in french and the next in english. But there is a volleyball lot where you also can play badminton, a playground and basketball court. And the beaches aren't that far away and it is right down the road from Funtown/Splashtown and they sell discount tickets at the store. The store seemed to have pretty much everything you would need, maybe a little more expensive but not unreasonable, for example $7 for firewood whereas there are people selling if for $5, ice cost $3 and $2 at the store. There's also a Hannaford's not far.
We had the pizza at the Merry Moose one night, not bad at all. And we also had the blueberry pancakes and my kids chose the strawberry with whipped cream. The pancakes are large, my kids ate one pancake each.
I met the owner when she personally drove my son back to the site in a golf cart after he got lost on a trip to the restroom. She seemed very pleasant.
My kids did not want to leave and when I offered them the chance to go to Bayley's where there are more activities, after seeing how close the sites were together, my kids chose to stay at KOA for another night.
