Been off the road for a couple of years due to Hurricane Sandy doing a number on our house, but back camping in 2015!

It's about the only game in town if you are going to Kings Dominion, nothing overly memorable about it, but it was clean and suitable.

Date of Stay:

I loved this place 47 years ago when it was a KOA and it has only gotten better and better each time I have been here. Friendly staff, almost new amenities, clean sites. It's central to everything in the area, Ogunquit, Kennebunk, and not a long drive to Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The only thing keeping it from being a 10 are the lack of a dog park and some umbrellas at the pool. WELL worth the stay.

Date of Stay:

Very nice campground. Clean, with level sites. Very friendly staff & nicely stocked store.

Date of Stay:

A very dated and getting antiquated campground. Most trailer sites are jammed in tight, not every one has a fire ring; and a lot are on hillsides. Toilets and showers are old. No swimming pool. It's OK in a pinch if you are out and about Lancaster sight seeing; but not worth more than a couple of days.

Date of Stay:

Yes, it has beautiful views and nice wide sites. But, we too were on the hillside and the sites are NOT level. Longer trailers will certainly experience the problem of trying to get it level, without having a LONG last step down when exiting the trailer. Better to request one of the premium pull through sites down near the office, which are level. The bathrooms, though not modern were clean and the store well stocked. We were only here over night, so did not use the pool or activities.

Date of Stay:

A VERY nice campground, with modern and clean showers and toilets, very decently sized sites; two pools and a hot tub, as well as a friendly staff. Most sites provided shade as well. For the price of $38 a night, the place can't be beat. The only things that kept it from being a 10 were only one table and umbrella at the pool, poor TV reception (OK...who really needs it camping) and narrow bandwidth on the free wireless. The stone roads were fine, prefer them, rather than muddy roads when it rains. We will definitely aim to come back.

Date of Stay:

A difficult dilemma rating this KOA. Yes: the store, pool, snack bar and playground were really nice. The staff was warm and friendly. However, they really only had one modern bathroom and ONE modern shower stall; in the office building near the larger sites. The balance of the showers and toilets were older and farther away. As well, most of the sites were "rough surface" and pretty rustic. The picnic tables were older and a number wobbly. Yes, there is plenty of shade, but many sites were very narrow, with fire pits that ended up under one's awnings. And these were called the premium sites. One fire pit next door was made out of crumbling cement block above ground, the next was completely below ground with a tire ring, easy to step into. Additionally, they were having constant problems handling the electrical load on a mid 80's day; with the power going off (along with the internet access) in different sections, several times in one day. Internet service was flukey as well. Yes: they have a nice shuttle service into town, but they need to do some improvements to the electrical grid and freshen up the sites a bit. Yes: this is a decent campground, close to everything. But, a 9 or a 10? No.

If it weren't for the VERY narrow sites and the campfire rings close to your neighbors, I would rate this a 10. However, several times; we had smoke come in and it set off our C02 detector and things were just TOO cozy. Rate was very fair though and the CG clean and well taken care of. Showers and Toilets in nice condition. It's just those close sites and the fact that most of the "big rig" sites were a tad too short are keeping the CG from being a 10.

Date of Stay:

A nice campground on the beach. Indoor and outdoor pool with inside hot tub.Grassy sites and concrete pads. Showers and restrooms clean, although a bit "dated." Wi-Fi a bit slow with narrow bandwidth; and yes, they do nickle and dime on the charges. Pool, decently stocked store and office open late. AS TO THE WATER QUALITY, which other reviewers have noted...the office explained it as they use well water and since they are between the ocean and the sound, the salt water does infiltrate the aquifer. We did NOT hook up to the city water, preferring to draw from our on board tank.

Date of Stay:

Based on nearly 35 years of camping, I feel the 10 ratings on this campground are a little high. BUT...that said; this is certainly an above average KOA. The store is well stocked and new. There is a boat dock and a beautiful sunset on the Neuse River. They offer premium patio sites with chiminea, swinging chairs, and umbrella topped tables. The sites are level. But, one set of toilets that we used were a bit dated and the pool only goes to 4ft. Additionally, the pool DOES not offer steps, only a ladder which make it difficult for the elderly or disabled to get in. When I compare the landscape and facilities to a CG such Willow Tree Creek or Normandy Farms, it's still only an 8. But, it is a VERY good Campground though...well worth the visit and central to area attractions.

This campground is a "Tale Of Two Cities," indeed. YES...IT IS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CG'S WE'VE BEEN TO, with the landscaping, pool and toilet facilities among the best. It's very peaceful there. However, it's more than annoying that a campground just built from the ground up in 2003 as a "Premium Campground" was built without Cable TV. Additionally, the road/intersection lighting is non existent. Coming back late at night, you have to be careful not to drive down one way lanes since the signs are not lit. The store closes at 5 pm and that store is 95 % nick knacks, without any basic groceries such as bread, milk and eggs. We couldn't even find potato chips and they don't sell firewood. They also run a hayride at 9 pm at night...in the dark when most young children are heading off to bed. Additionally, the internet has had long term problems and was not working at all during the 4 days we were there. The current management of the campground is new as well. BE FOREWARNED ON FEES...if you make more than one change to your schedule, you are charged $10. If you have to cancel, you are charged a full nights fee. I have never seen such charges over 35 years of camping. YES, it's beautiful, but in good conscience...I can only give it an 8 out of 10 rating. If it weren't for the bathrooms, it would be only a 7. Management needs to rethink their business plan.

Date of Stay:

Very nice staff, showers and restrooms clean and new. Smaller pool (crowded in the hot weather) but it is in very nice condition. Large sites, but to be honest, what keeps my rating a 7 is that many of the larger pull thru sites are a bit rough. WiFi service very good, as well as a good selection of channels on the cable tv. SMALL store with a small selection and THEY DO NOT SELL MILK, although grocery stores including Walmart are within one mile.

Date of Stay:

A VERY Nice Campground, premium patio sites available for big rigs; but all sites very level and large; many with shade. On the downside, they have no sewage on sites, but do have a honeywagon service along with a sewage dump. Also, no cable TV. Wireless STILL having problems, with a weak - inconsistent service...and yes, they did have someone working on it, STILL. Although, if you are looking to be closer to the Thousand Islands, the Ivy Lea KOA might be a bit closer to the attractions.

Date of Stay:

An "OK" KOA. Fairly decent CG in an older "tourist" section of Niagara Falls. Nice indoor pool and very nice hot tubs, smaller outside pool, both in nice shape. Some facilities are a little older, but in generally good repair and condition. The grounds are a little rough and could use some upgrading.

Date of Stay:

This is one of the better KOA's with a nice, family atmosphere. They've upgraded a lot of their existing pull through sites with concrete pads in the "A" Section. Even a few with upgraded patios and chairs at the end of each "A" Row, as well as a new "Big Rig Section" with upgraded "premium" patios. The Wi-Fi is the pits.
