We camped there during the New Year weekend reserved a site with electric and sewer, intending to use our fresh water tank (due to the winter they had few sites with water hookup). Unfortunately, our freshwater drain cap was lost so we could not use our fresh water tank and they did not have any more water hookup sites. The manager let us hook up to the water supply that was going to be shared by the two sites next to us and even provided an extra "y" to split one hookup to three. The managers were polite and understanding as they have been in the previous time we have been there. We have kids and the lack of a swimming pool is not an issue. You can walk to Dutch Wonderland and some of the closer restaurants and an outlet mall. Also, although you are just off highway 30, it is very quiet with the tree cover. Sites are unique to access but just be patient. Paved roads for those with young children who like to ride their bikes. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our second time to this campground. Both times we stayed in the upper area, which are the premium sites. The sites are adequate in size and most in the premium area have a small grassy area bordered by landscape timbers for the kids to play. The playground is basic but serves its purpose for our 2 and 4 year olds. The campground is very wooded and close to I-81 but secluded and quiet. Since the premium sites on the hill have limited access, there only traffic is from those with sites on the hill so it's quieter and safer for the kids. We will definitely be back. We camped at Walnut Hills Campground (formerly Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very family friendly campground with a great staff. We stayed up on the hill, overlooking the lake at one of the "back-to-back" sites mentioned in a prior review. There was plenty of room for our fifth wheel camper and truck. The campground is well maintained and strikes a good balance between preserving nature, while providing a good quality campground with modern amenities (our site had cable hookup). The playground equipment was also well maintained and, though it could use one or two more pieces of equipment, it kept our 2 and 4 year old children busy. One previous review commented about the need for attention to the roads, but they were adequate for us. They were dated but maintained and not full of potholes, etc. Moreover, although some roads are hilly, our trailer did not bottom out. I would recommend this campground and we are definitely going back. We camped at Walnut Hills Campground (formerly Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA) in a Fifth Wheel.
