This is a beautiful campground. We stayed in Senoia camp, on the upper loop, which is quieter, less congested, and more shaded than the lake front sites. However, I would not hesitate to camp closer to the water, as the sites are very nice there, too. There are no direct water hook-ups, but plenty of portable water hydrants, and you can fill your tank easily with two lengths of sanitary hose. It is a hilly, terraced park, as described before, but the sites are large, fairly level, and well planned and maintained. There were two flat, accessible sites near the restroom, and handicapped-accessible parking right at the bath house for those with disabilities. Friends stayed along the lake, and had water access to their boat and we swam behind their campsite, as were many others along the shore. (Boats had to be put in the water at the marina a short distance away and driven to the campsite). The bath houses were clean and well maintained. The back of the driveway in our site had the timbers stacked to keep you from backing over the hill. Even though the park was crowded with lots of young people and families, everything was very orderly. We are planning our return visit.

I have never encountered such a friendly staff!! Any questions or problems we had were handled with the most professional attitude. Everyone was so nice, from the guard at the gate, to the game room attendants, to the folks at the snack bar. We have never felt so welcome at a campground before. They were also very accommodating to a group of teens camping together. One employee even said to the group leader "I want to accommodate you as much as possible" and meant it. Ditto the earlier comments on the cleanliness of the rest rooms, laundry, pool, etc.

Campground was ok for overnight only. Wouldn't want to stay longer. No view or charm, but it is convenient to the highway; easy on and off. Before taking a shower I had to pick up used band-aids, gum, q-tips and several globs of hair. Then the drain backed up into the shower: yuk! The office was staffed by teenagers who acted like they were doing you a favor by checking you in. I strongly feel that the campground is way overpriced ($43/night) for the condition it was in. I like animals, but I do not find waterfowl or any loose pets wandering the campground desirable; I don't like stepping in what they leave behind! However, to the campground's benefit, they did send us an e-mail thank you note after our stay. Thank you notes are very rare these days!

Even though the park was crowded (holiday weekend), we had a great time at Nittany Mountain. They had great activities for the kids- mine enjoyed the scavenger hunt and the croquet tournament. The pool was very nice and the playground large. The bath houses were clean, but few, and are in need of updating and enlarging. If the bath houses are not increased, they are in need of more available sewer hookups. The roads need some attention - some stone or some paving. When it rains, all of the mud gets tracked into the bathouses and its impossible to keep up with cleaning the floors. However, the bath house situation would not keep us away, and we will certainly return in the future. The campground called our site one of the smaller sites, and was concerned about the size of our trailer, but we thought that the site was very nice.
