We stayed at Mosquito Lake State Park over Labor Day weekend. It was our first visit to this park. In general we like State Parks better than private campgrounds as they tend to be a better value. Mosquito Lake did not change that perception for us. We live in the Pittsburgh area and were looking for somewhere nearby to park our 37' motorhome for the long weekend. We had site 161, which had a bit of slope to the rear, but is paved (like all of the sites), and 50a, 30a, and 20a power available. There is no water or sewer at the sites, but both are available within the campground. The campground provides easy access to the beach, dog play area, and the marina. The roads are wide and we had no problem maneuvering our motorhome throughout. There is a basketball court, sand volleyball court, archery range, and amphitheater where movies are played and events are held . The sites are large and spacious with picnic table and fire ring. We camped at Mosquito Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed at Codorus State Park campground the first week of July 2016. We stayed over the 4th of July weekend, so pretty busy as you might expect. The entrance to the campground can be challenging to find and google maps never seemed to get it right for me, so be sure to check your directions carefully. The entrance to the campground through the checkpoint is a bit of a mess and can be a bit difficult to navigate with a larger rig. We have a 35' RV and were able to manage OK, but I can see where it could be a bit hairy for larger rigs, 5th wheels or trailers. Plenty of the above in the park though, so they seemed to have managed as well.
The showers / restrooms are centrally located in each loop of the campground with garbage dumpsters nearby. The showers / restrooms are old, but very clean and there was plenty of hot water.
The campground has both non-electric and 30amp electric sites. There is no water or dump facilities at the individual campsites, though there is both fresh water and dual dump stations at the entrance to the campground.
In general, I don't think there's a perfectly level site in the campground. You can find some that are close to level and others that aren't even close. I saw a lot of blocks being used at some campsites to level rigs and trailers. I saw one motorhome that has nearly 6" off the ground on blocks. I'd say that about half the sites have asphalt pads and half have dirt/stone pads.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the park as there is lots to do at this park, especially if you like the boating and fishing on the lake (though there is no swimming in the lake). We camped at Codorus State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed at the Game Lodge Campground in Custer State Park for a week in June 2015. We found the sites to be level and spacious. All concrete pads with grass lawns that include picnic table and fire ring. Most sites had ample shade. The Campground Hosts came by after we were setup to ensure that we were ok and didn't need anything. Making reservations was fairly painless. We were in the handicap site at site 3E next to the shower house. I was afraid that the foot traffic to the bathhouse would be troublesome, but we did not even notice for the most part. The sites all have 50/30 amp electric, but no water for dump on the site. There is potable water and a dump site in the campground. Highly recommend this campsite if visiting the black hills / mt. rushmore areas. AT&T cell phones worked great, both voice and data. Sprint phones do not work for the most part. Sprint phones can roam, but little or no data. No wifi service in the campground. We camped at Custer State Park - Game Lodge Campground in a Motorhome.

We state at BarkCamp State park over Memorial Day weekend in May 2015. The campground had a mix of good and bad sites. The reservation website does a good job of explaining if the sites are level or not. We lucked out and got a nice level site. There's a nice small lake for fishing and boating, but we did neither. There is also a nice little beach for the kiddo's to play in. The sites have 50/30 amp service, but no water or dump at the sites. There is a dump station in the campground. We found AT&T and Sprint service to work fine. No wifi in the park. We camped at Barkcamp State Park in a Motorhome.
