We stayed here for one night and would go back. The owners went out of their way to be welcoming and friendly. After check-in we got homemade cookies. We had homemade pizza delivered to our site. There was also a complimentary breakfast. The Wi-Fi was marginal, which is the norm it seems. We were in site 36, a long pull-through, which easily accommodated us. The picnic tables looked freshly painted.

Date of Stay:

When we arrived at 2:30 there was a note that the owners were gone and to pick a site. We were in #44, a long pull through, as most of the sites are. Don't stop here if you want amenities and a good nights sleep. The trains were constant. This park is convenient on Hwy 54, and has flat gravel sites.

The rate reflects using $25.00 from KOA rewards so we just paid $9. We were in site #92 which has a concrete pad. The grass between sites was dead, probably from lack of moisture. There's large mature trees that are well trimmed. The picnic table was warped and covered with bird droppings. This park is easy off and easy on with a Flying J down the road 1 mile. A good overnight place to stay.

Date of Stay:

This is a "modern" KOA with long and wide pull-throughs. The pads are gravel with patches of nice grass between sites. The store was well stocked with friendly workers. We didn't try their pizza but I see there is even a breakfast pizza. The Wi-Fi was a little weak but I was warned at check in. Great place to stop.

We liked this CG. Easy off and onto I-74. Yes the CG is practically on the interstate but the noise did not bother us. Very clean and well maintained. No laundry room but beautiful pool. They were willing to mail a pre-stamped package for me. We will return if ever in the area. Great overnight stop.

We were assigned #40, a nice long pull through. Worked good for our 40' MH and tow. Wi-fi worked good, which is rare. Narrow roads getting to the CG and about 2 miles from freeway. We hoped we didn't meet another big rig. Gentleman who checked us in was very nice. My husband took the grand kids to the pool. No one else was there but the 10 year old got yelled at by a lady for jumping in the pool. Yes there was a sign--no jumping! Glad we stayed only one night.

We were in a long pull-through (#56). This campground is perfect for anyone who wants to be near the battlefields and downtown Gettysburg. Our site was level but a couple of trees presented a problem when leaving so cut through another empty site. The pool was very busy for the holiday weekend. The camp store was very well stocked. Lots of seasonal folks here. Everyone was friendly. Would stay here again if in the area.

This park was recommended to us by several friends. It's a wonderful park with very knowledgeable, courteous employees. We were in #1303, a long back-in site, which was very level and shaded in the afternoon. This block had terraced sites with some grass in between. We had a nicely painted picnic table. The camp store is very well equipped. The two pools were wonderful, with lifeguards. My only two negatives concerned the laundry room and the fishing pond. The laundry room was not clean and many of the washers and dryers were out of order. I did hear they were building a new one, though. The fishing pond was very scummy and non-inviting. The price includes a Good Sam Discount and charges for our 2 grandkids. We loved riding the Metro and seeing all the DC sites.

We loved this park. We were in site #93, a long pull through with no trees for satellite access. The price reflects $6 a day for 2 grandkids. They had a great time at the fishing pond. It's the best we've had at any KOA. The store is stocked well. Nice laundry room, $2 a wash and .25 for 7 min of drying. The pool was very nice. Very friendly people work here. There's great signage to get you to this quiet park in the wilderness. There are trains off in the distance but they weren't annoying. My husband suggests some of the pull-throughs could be situated for motorhomes to be facing the pond. We received a lot of history lessons by visiting Fredericksburg and several other battlegrounds. I would have rated this park a 10 but their Wi-Fi was weak and our Verizon signal was 1 bar. Also the picnic table was small for 4 people and a grill. If we are ever around this area again, we would stay here.

Date of Stay:

We were in B4, which was a long pull-through. Site was level but could have used some added crushed rock. Satellite and Verizon worked well. Grandsons dropped a few dollars in the game room. Nice pool. Camp store was lightly stocked. Drove 30 minutes to the Sylvan Heights Bird Park, which was very worthwhile. We would stay here again if we were in this area.

I should have made reservations earlier. We got site #1052 (inland) at Pirateland. It should have never been assigned for a 40' MH! There is a transformer along the road in the MIDDLE of the site. It was extremely difficult to get parked (got battle scars to prove it)! Time to leave and could not turn left to go to the exit. Had to turn right and drive through the park to avoid hitting a parked pick up in a permanent site and a road post. In addition, the site is far from level. The front wheels were off the ground and the sewer line went uphill! Everyone who came in during the week had difficulty, even the long travel trailers. There are other nice pull-throughs for big rigs. We did enjoy the ocean, pool, ice cream shop and nice laundromat ($1.75 for wash and .25 for 6 minutes). There is a vendor that comes in every day and serves very good food out of their mobile food truck. For entertainment people ride their golf carts around scoping out the people. We will not return to this place.

Rate reflects 2 night stay with Passport America 50% off 1st night. We had a back in site that was easy to park the 40' rig. Pool was very nice. We did not partake in any of the Stone Mountain activities. We were in town to go to the Georgia Aquarium. Beautiful park. Very clean. Be sure you come in the east gate. We will return if were in the area.

The price can't be beat to be a few minutes from the Space Center. We were in pull-through #12, which was long, black top, and level. Some of the sites had holes in (#8 and 10). It's a typical campground with mature trees and a few full time residents. Nice site manager. Grandkids had fun finding all the rocket parts that were left from Space Camp. You can go through the Space Center in one day.

We were in pull-through B6. The satellite worked fine, as well as their cable. Friendly folks. Lovely ice cream parlor for hand dipped cones. The pool looked nice but the weather did not cooperate for us to use it. Nearby Papa Johns delivered pizza to us at our site. Because it is an older park, it has very mature trees. We would suggest some tree trimming.

Stayed here 2 weekend nights. Have been here before. Nice KOA. Swimming pool was wonderful. Catch and release fishing pond was marginal but the kids did catch fish. Very friendly staff. Nice little animal zoo. Very easy access from I -40. You do hear the traffic but we had the air conditioners going. No planes or trains, though. Located half way between Henrietta and Checotah. Good little restaurant on site. Free Wi-Fi worked great. No complaints. Will return.
