We loved this campground. Who knew a state park could have a water park? I hear it is really, really crowded in the Summer. We just spent Labor Day weekend and the pool wasn't crowded. The kids had a blast. They have lots of activities - story teller, hayride, concert. The nature center is beautiful and the trails are well maintained. And the staff was awesome!! We will definitely camp here again!

We love this park! We had a waterfront site this time. We were camping with friends in the cabins and we had site 73 - it was perfect. The bugs were bad at times - especially the green heads! But we had a good breeze most of the time and it kept them under control most of the time. We kayaked out to the beach and went swimming - the water was unbelievably warm! Beautiful views, fishing and crabbing for the kids, great staff and awesome campsites. Can't ask for much more.

The park is beautiful: swimming beach, boating, great trails. We did it all and had a great time. Our site was plenty big especially when we had visitors; we had 8 people and two dogs on site without a problem. Some of the tenting sites are really amazing: parking pad on the road and then you set up camp back in the woods or up against the lake! This park is new to having pets and the rules are restrictive. You can walk them in the dog designated section, on the main road and on the trails. You are not allowed to even walk them through the other sections of the campground. Hopefully these rules will relax as they get used to having dogs in the campground. The only other complaint is that the bathhouses are old, they were clean earlier in the day but nasty towards the end. We will definitely camp here again. We loved it and so did the kids.

A very nice campground, if small like most KOAs. Staff is friendly and facilities are kept neat and clean: including the pool. The pool gets really crowded: best time to go is right after lunch when the life guard comes back on duty. The river sites are really nice if you are tent camping, or have a small trailer.

We love this campground. There are six electric sites available, not including the host sites. The inside sites are around large grassy areas: lots of room for the kids to play. The loops are paved and fairly flat for young kids to polish their bike riding skills. We went to UofD to watch a lacrosse game. It was only 15 minutes away. The trails are awesome and the of leash dog area is amazing.

We loved staying here! We were worried because it had approximately 8 inches of rain the day before we camped, and we were concerned that we would be camping in mud. Amazingly the campground was really dry. It is grassy and open - lots of room for kids to play sports. Flat paved loops are great for bike riding. The electric sites have gravel - everything else is grass. There is a dog off-leash area on the other side of the park where the dogs can run and swim. The hiking trails are in really good shape - very few puddles considering the rainfall. There are water views through the trees and the sites are HUGE. We will be back - maybe next month.

We love this campground. We camped here for our daughter's 5th birthday. Walked to Dutch Wonderland, came back to the camper at lunch and then walked back. Staff is great, campground is quiet. We like to camp on the sites across from the stream - the kids can ride bikes and play on the playground and we can sit back and enjoy the view!

This is a nice place to stay. Staff is friendly, pool is great. We brought our dog and hiked the trails and went to St. Peters to climb on the rocks. Everyone had a good time. A little tricky backing our 30' into the campsite, but once we were in, it was a good size.

This is a very nice state park with a great swimming lake, good hiking and large sites. We had no problem camping with our 30 footer. We were on the Addison loop which allows pets. My only complaint is that they don't allow dogs on the hiking trails. If I had known that I probably would have left my dog at home.

We camped here over Memorial Day Weekend, which is why the price is higher. This is an older campground. Some of the seasonals are down right scary. The staff was very friendly. My kids loved the airbrush tatoos and the lake to swim in. The playgrounds are on the older side. The store is small and not well stocked - not to mention that registration is done right at the entrance to the store causing a traffic jam trying to get in and out of the door. Entrance to the park is basically one lane which makes coming in and out interesting if you are towing your camper. We stayed with friends in the pull through sites - sites 25 & 26. I think we had the best sites in the place. Our site pulled in the opposite direction of everyone else's so our awnings faced each other and we had a great big common campsite. Wouldn't have been happy if we were staring at strangers across the campsite, but it was great for us. Water pressure was TERRIBLE. And apparently there is no quiet time enforced. First night the people next to us were talking loudly until 1:00am; 2nd night people were screaming at 2:30am. 3rd night people were evicted and camper towed after dark. We won't be back.

We stayed in the North East Loop - full hook up with two other families. We were on site 16 by the playground. It was great for our kids they could run and play and we could sit an relax. We hiked to the lighthouse...an easy hike with great views, even our four year old was able to do it. We loved this park! We will definitely be back.

This is a very nice park, if a little congested. Some of the sites are spacious (along stream) but others are really packed in. The staff was nice and my husband had a nice chat with the owner. Wi-Fi worked great. If you are getting firewood - go for the $13 for the wheelbarrow full it's a real bargain. We would definitely camp here again. We had room for a a trailer and a large tent with space to spare.

Very nice campground. The pool was large, clean and lots of fun. There are sewer sites available - just not a lot of them. The fishing pond was nice as was having the Horseshoe trail at the bottom of the campground. I took the dog for couple of runs. Take a trip to St. Peters Village and go climbing the boulders that line the stream. My kids had the best time. Management was very friendly and the campground was well kept.

This is a great park! Large, level sites. Lots of shade. The canoeing/kayaking was amazing. We were camping with extended family and the nine of us paddled out to the beach area. It was beautiful and as untouched as you can get these days. The bathhouses are clean, if a bit worn. There were bugs near the marshes, but it was July, so to be expected. We will definitely come here again!!

This is a great campground just down the road from Knoebel's Amusement park. Much closer than Lake Glory if you are looking for sewer hook ups. They are strict in their rules (don't mess with the grass) but we didn't have any problem with that. There was a bit of street noise at our campsite, but nothing too bad. Everything was clean, the pool and playground were nice. Wish it hadn't rained so much so we could have enjoyed it even more!
