Gettysburg / Battlefield KOA, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

When we arrived, we were immediately escorted to our site before checking in. They had a nice system to keep new arrivals from piling up on the entrance road because there wasn't much space to park and go into the office to register. The staff was very friendly and even waived a cancellation fee (!!!) when I had to cut my stay short by one day due to travel issues. As a previous review mentions, we were in the section of 65-69 and did have some traffic noise on the road behind the site but it wasn't that bad and we were eventually able to block the noise. The site I had was W/E only and was probably the most level gravel campsite I have been on, I did not require any leveling of my motorhome. This CG is very well maintained and they use the natural trees, landscaping and boulders for site borders and fire rings. The pool and activities area were modern and well maintained. The putt putt course even had civil war themed holes. The camp store had the basics for camping supplies and souvenirs. There are plenty of cabins and a nice section specifically for tents that have level pads. Most of the sites had the typical amount of space between sites, not overly spacious but not stacked on top of each other either. The restrooms and showers by the main office were nice and were clean each time I used them. This was one of the few KOAs that I actually did NOT have WiFi connectivity issues. There are tours available to both DC and Gettysburg. Overall, you can tell that this is a well cared for campground. I would stay here again. We camped at Gettysburg / Battlefield KOA in a Motorhome.

Ohiopyle State Park, Ohiopyle, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice state park with the typical no-frills amenities. However, it is near Ohiopyle with a lot of hiking, waterfalls and river rafting activities nearby. We camped here during the week after Labor Day and it was it was only sparsely filled, which made it VERY quiet and relaxing. We arrived and no one was at the main office because of training. We self registered and went to our site. Most of the sites are well shaded within forested areas and very spacious. The showers were typical for state parks but were clean and serviceable with plenty of hot water. The restrooms were clean. The RV sites were electric only but several water filling locations on way into park. Dump station was easy to access on the way out of the park. Entrance roads are a little steep and hilly. I would stay here again. We camped at Ohiopyle State Park in a Motorhome.

Mercer / Grove City KOA, Mercer, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $62.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for an weekend trip and picked this CG because of the proximity to Grove City Outlet Mall. Easy to get to the CG off of the Route 79 exit for the mall. Entire CG is gravel including all sites and roads. I see a lot of reviews about lot sizes being too small, which is true for some of the back-in sites. Most of the pull-thru sites in our section were very large. Our site was on the end and was very spacious and private. It was very quiet. It wasn't too difficult to get level on the site. The store was average and the pool area was a little on the small side, but serviceable. Dog park was very big. Most of the pathways are wood chips and I could see where heavy rains would affect them. They had several planned activities for kids but some of the amenities offered for playgrounds, bocce ball, ping pong need a little maintenance and updating. There were a lot of weeds growing in and around those areas. Staff was friendly but this CG appears to run only on the bare minimum number of staff with limited hours of operation for the office. We were escorted to our site as were most arrivals but I saw some that were not escorted. There appears to be several seasonal sites but golf carts are not allowed and that really keeps the noise and traffic down. Restrooms were above average, they were clean. Overall nothing spectacular about this CG but no issues, either. I would stay here again. We camped at Mercer / Grove City KOA in a Motorhome.

Virginia Beach KOA, Virginia Beach, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

A very nice campground that is a trolley stop for a service (fee) to and from Virginia Beach. The staff was very accommodating when I asked to be moved to a shaded site. The site they gave us was a pull through water/electric only but was a huge site with plenty of shade. The "premium" sites toward the front of the park have concrete patios and furniture. They are nice sites but not as shaded or as large as some of the W/E sites in our section (sites 114-132). One of the pros for this CG is that there are plenty of activities for all ages including a pocket park activity area, arcade, bike rentals and two nice pools. Another observation is that there is always several staff riding through the park on golf carts to pick up trash, check out sites, escort new arrivals to their site, etc. This is the most I have seen CG staff available for questions or issues. The biggest issue I had with this CG is the restrooms/showers. The restrooms had several broken toilets and what was not broken was not very clean. The showers were also dirty and need some updates. One note is that there is a military base nearby and the CG is in the flight pattern for jets that occasionally take off. It did not bother us and I enjoyed the show, but I can see where others might find it distracting and too loud. Overall a good CG but my rating is based on the restrooms. We camped at Virginia Beach KOA in a Motorhome.

Cape Charles / Chesapeake Bay KOA, Cape Charles, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $75.00
Overall Rating:

We changed sites while there because our first site was close to other campers and we asked to be moved to an area that offered a little more shade. Staff was helpful and nice. The sites are domed and hard to level from back to front. This appears to be a newer CG that was created on a giant field with no trees, almost every site was full sun. There is a small private beach with a designated dog beach. The pool was a bit cold and played loud, terrible music. The bathrooms and showers were updated but not kept the cleanest. The office and store area stayed open 24 hours. There isn't much else to do for activities with children. Just the beach and pool and a small playground. No coordinated activities or any other features that most KOAs have. Maximum for this CG is only a few day visit with just the beach, restaurant and pool as the only reason for camping there. We camped at Cape Charles / Chesapeake Bay KOA in a Motorhome.

Don't miss the sunsets over the Chesapeake Bay. The CG offers a couple of nice viewing areas, with benches and fire rings, to catch the sunsets.

Cherry Hill Park (Washington DC), College Park, Maryland

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $80.00
Overall Rating:

A very nice, very large campground and well run. No escort to your site. The water and sewer hookups for my site were towards the front of the lot. This was only a quick stopover for a few days so I waited to dump until the last day. The site was crushed stone and had a nice patio. The back of my lot was a ditch that had tall grass that needed cut. But it was an end site with plenty of room between each site. They had a nice store with a lot of supplies and camping equipment. This CG is a home base for going into DC for sightseeing. They offer informational sessions for tips and tricks on getting to and around DC. I will return but only after I forget how much of a nightmare the traffic is in DC. We camped at Cherry Hill Park (Washington DC) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

DC traffic is terrible, plan accordingly. The Metro is the best way to get around the DC area but the bus trip from the CG to the Metro makes several stops. Give yourself enough time to get to your destination if you have time commitments. Also, the College Park Metro station (the one closest to the CG) has NOTHING nearby (no restaurants, shops, etc.). We had a very boring 40 minute wait for the bus to bring us back on a weekend (the buses do not run as often on the weekends).

Streetsboro / Cleveland SE KOA, Streetsboro, Ohio

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed here for an overnight stay. Restrooms cleaned twice a day, were very dirty before cleanings. Timing is everything on the restroom usage. Had a water/electric only site that was gravel and no shade. Trees behind lot provided some privacy and lot size was above average. Nice pool that was small and plenty of fishing ponds. They provide trash pick up at site, including recycling. Dog park needed the grass to be cut down a little more with weeds along the side fence. Nice CG store with basics. Biggest complaint was the complete lack of WiFi connectivity throughout the CG. The WiFi service is terrible. We camped at Streetsboro / Cleveland SE KOA in a Motorhome.

Hocking Hills State Park, Logan, Ohio

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

Our site was next to the shower house and thought the foot traffic would be a problem, but it wasn't. Very quiet and was convenient to have shower/bathroom so close. The shower area was above average. I've been at state parks with worse facilities. The restroom needed to be cleaned more frequently. Site had a slope from front to back and a very large step down from pavement to grass area. Campground had a nice pool. To get to the sites from the CG office, you have to travel up a winding road with very little for berms on each site. We camped at Hocking Hills State Park in a Motorhome.

Buckeye Lake / Columbus East KOA, Buckeye Lake, Ohio

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $61.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for one night. I was disappointed in the online booking process that limited our options for the site selection. Our site ended up being very close to one of the cabins and our fire pit was basically next to the other site. It was not overly crowded in the park and there were plenty of other sites that would have accommodated our needs without having to be right on top of other campers. On a positive note, the bathrooms by the office appear to have been remodeled recently. They were very clean. Check in was quick and we were escorted to our site. We camped at Buckeye Lake / Columbus East KOA in a Motorhome.

Cedar Point Resorts / Lighthouse Point Campground, Sandusky, Ohio

Date of Stay: July, 2008 - $69.00
Overall Rating:

We have been coming to Cedar Point for years and this was our first stay in this campground. This campground is what the reviews say it is. We had an electric only site in the older section of the campground. The sites in the older section are very small and crammed together, but they are paved and level with plenty of shade. We fortunately had an end site that was well shaded and a little larger than most sites in the older section. The restrooms and showers were old and fairly clean, but not spotless. The newer section of the campground has full hookup sites that are a little larger and have more updated restrooms and showers. You can’t have bikes or campfires. This is basically a place to sleep and rest when visiting the park. You pay for the convenience of being able to walk into the parks directly from your campsite. We camped at Cedar Point Resorts / Lighthouse Point Campground in a Motorhome.

Roundup Lake Campground (formerly Roundup Lake RV Resort), Mantua, Ohio

Date of Stay: July, 2008 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is a little expensive. It has a very large lake and a lot of sites, many of them seasonal campers. There are a lot of activities for the kids. The full hook-up sites in section N are pretty tight. We stayed in section E and had a little more room. One complaint was that we had some heavy rains while we were there and our site got a little flooded. The water ran through our site and collected in a low spot behind our site. The campground was very busy, almost too busy if you are looking for a relaxing atmosphere. The park is also very large, so you’ll need bikes to get around, especially to the swimming section of the lake. You can also rent golf carts. The pool was warm and decent sized. There was not always a lifeguard on duty at the pool, though. We camped at Roundup Lake Campground (formerly Roundup Lake RV Resort) in a Motorhome.

Canton / East Sparta KOA, East Sparta, Ohio

Date of Stay: July, 2008 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice campground. The staff was friendly. Our full hook-up site was large and nicely shaded. We stayed here over the 4th of July weekend, and there were a lot of activities for children, included fireworks and a dance. One minor issue was that it was a very crowded weekend, as you would expect, and the tent camping sites seem to be jammed in all over the place. It made it appear to be very crowded. The pool could be cleaner, too. All in all, still a nice campground and we would stay again. We camped at Canton / East Sparta KOA in a Motorhome.
