Believe this park has recently changed owners/name - no web site but phone number was good. Called ahead same day and was able to get site with late arrival (manager even came around to see that we found the site). The sites are close together and looked to be older. No problem leveling our rig and hooking up. There were several long-term residents. The car display and large cowboy statue are a nice touch. This park just east of the Cadillac ranch outside of Amarillo. Easy access to I-40 and there was some road noise (didn't keep us up at night though). A good choice for our overnight stay.

Well laid out campground with nice hookup posts (power, cable). Clean level sites, easy navigation on the gravel roads. Staff waited past closing to check us in and escort us to the site. Our site had trees/shade. Easy access off of I-44 but didn't hear any road noise.

Date of Stay:

This was an overnight stop for us. Park is older KOA but most of the facilities are in good shape. Roads are easy to get around on and our site was mostly level and easy to set up. Wi-Fi was slow. Easy access from I-40 and there was some road noise but not enough to keep us awake.

Date of Stay:

We had stayed here when it was under a different name. The KOA brand is new and it looks like everything is pretty well changed over. Same great service as when we stayed before - easy check in (even during a brief power failure in the area) and instructions for getting into our site. Pool, laundry, showers, and game room were all in great shape. Didn't get a chance to eat at the restaurant. All the roads are in great shape (entrance is on Country Club). Easy to level and set up our rig.

This was our second stay at this park - liked it so much we were willing to go a little out of the way. Reserved a pull-through site online and when we arrived there were only two other campers (plus several tents in another part of the park). This place is awesome - quite, beautiful, simple and full of great scenery. Only modern convenience is the electric and water hookups (no sewer or dump station). Site was easy to get into and fairly level, plus long enough for our rig and truck. County road and entrance road are typical for New Mexico area - not smooth as glass but also not filled with potholes. Bring out the camera and get some great photos, enjoy the sunrise or sunset.

Nice park that is undergoing changes/updates as a KOA. We were expected and check in was easy. Guide to our site was helpful; unfortunately; we only stayed overnight. Our site was a little tight for our 36' but manageable. There are permanent residents but most looked in good shape. Pool is still closed. WiFi worked great - fast and easy to login.

This park is gated, you use a card key to enter the park (there is a deposit for the card). Great check-in procedures; met us at the entrance (we had a reservation), had an escort to our site, set up and then returned to the office to finish checking in. Park was full when we were there, but didn't seem overcrowded. There were activities like ice cream social, movie, face painting. Sites and roads are gravel, mostly level. Sites are close together, but not crowed on top of one another. Interior roads might make some in big rigs feel tight but we were able to get around with our 36' rig. Entrance road is narrow, but manageable.

This is a larger KOA and a good ‘destination’ park near Buckeye Lake. We were only there for an overnight stop. The sites were level and easy to enter and exit. There was an escort that drove us to our site. The store/office and bathrooms were clean and well maintained. There appear to be plenty of activities available (peddle cars, playground, pool, mini-golf, and more). There are also several seasonal sites at this park.

This was our destination campground for visiting Gettysburg. The park is large with a mix of seasonal and recreational sites. This was a very busy time for the park and they were well prepared, they had our check-in information ready as we pulled in and we were able to go directly to our site (we had reservations already). The interior roads are narrow but manageable. Sites are mostly level and we had plenty of room. Bathrooms and store/office are well maintained (especially given how busy they were at this time). There were plenty of activities at the park (pool, water slide, arts & crafts, local farmers with fruits and vegies for sale, even a 4th of July parade!). Many of the seasonal campers golf carts to get around within the park (an added traffic problem if you are not paying attention).

Date of Stay:

The campground is about eight miles from I-79 through the rolling hills of PA, not a problem getting there but it is not your typical highway campground. The park is located behind and run by the local volunteer fire department and staying here helps support the fire department. Our site was near the end of the lot and slopped some. The loose gravel. slope, and recent rains made it difficult to level but we made do, as it was simply an overnight stop for us. Some sites are paved and more level, there are even some pull-thru sites. There are no facilities or activities as this is a simply an area to park your RV. Many of the sites had long-term residents who are working in the area.

Date of Stay:

Our site was mostly level and we were able to set up easily with plenty of room. The entrance road is long and was in need of re-grading or re-paving, take it slow and easy and should have no problem. There was a playground, pool, pond with paddle-boats, and even a dog play area. The store/office and bathrooms were well maintained. This park served as a good overnight stop for us.

Very nice park with gravel roads throughout the park. Sites were level with plenty of room at each. Our site was water/electric only and met our needs well. Access from I-70 was a bit tricky (watch for the signs); entrance roads are 'country roads' - narrow but manageable. We arrived late but the host was there to escort us to the site. Pool, playground, lake, store all very nice. Office/store is typical KOA but very well maintained. Overall, this is a nice, well run campground and we would definitely stay here again.

Price was kind of high for what was provided. We had a ‘Red Carpet’ full hookup site. It’s a good destination campground for Indiana Beach. Place is well laid out – rows with diagonal pull throughs, not huge but not on top of each other. Cabins on the ends. Staff attitude was ‘indifferent’ they didn’t seem to take much interest in anything outside of checking you in – internet instructions were not provided until I asked and then I was given a couple of ID/passwords since the clerk didn’t know which one was working. Never did get the Wi-Fi to work. There are two shower houses with plenty of room, plus a laundry. The showers have a button that you have to push to get the water to come out – it runs for about 30 seconds, no adjustment to temperature.

Nice park for our stopover and last night of the trip. Sites are a little close together but we were able to pull in/out ok; had guide take us to the site. Lots of activities for kids: pool, mini-golf, bike/go-cart rentals, fishing, etc. Sunday breakfast buffet was nice too!

Date of Stay:

Good location and rates for campgrounds in this area. Horse riding and stables available. Our site was out in the open but there are many shaded sites as well. Level pull through sites made it easy to set up. Clean showers and bathrooms; nice laundry and camp store. Very close to Gettysburg and the battlefield. Horseback tours of the battlefield available that left right from the campground.
