Large campground. Easy to get to from highway. Friendly staff, nice pool, dog park, and playground plus a nature trail and jumping pillow. Originally planned to bring our trailer but it was in for service so we rented a cabin. Glad we did. RV sites are VERY tight. Patio sites are not near as nice as what we have seen at other KOAs. It was hard to match sites with the layout map because there are little roads and pathways everywhere. Our cabin was very clean and well equipped. Price seemed high but we were committed to the days off and still enjoyed our few days away. Store was reasonably stocked and prices were fair. Cable TV was fine. Wi-Fi was nonexistent. Signal was very weak and we were never able to connect for more than a minute or 2 so we gave up and used our data. There are a lot of permanent sites, mainly grouped in 1 or 2 sections. Many were very dirty and sites very cluttered with weeds, junk, etc. Several cars sped through the campground to the permanent section. Mini golf course was OK but needs some basic maintenance to make it even worth enjoying. This seems to be the theme throughout the park. Everything seemed 'OK' but the place has such potential and it was like they just cannot keep up. The area around the office and store looks great. It goes slightly downhill as you venture away. We would stay again but only in a cabin. We would not bring our trailer here due to the very, very cramped sites.

One of the nicest campgrounds we have stayed in. We stay here several times a year. Sites are fairly spacious and level. Some very nice patio sites with swings and table with umbrella on either concrete pad or wooden deck. Even when the campground is full, you do not feel cramped, which is nice compared to some other campgrounds, which is probably why it costs a bit more. I'm sure they could charge less if they parked everyone in tight rows. Usually activities going on over the weekends. Pool is beautiful and heated. Wagon ride through the campground on Saturday nights. Nice hiking/nature trail. Staff is friendly and restrooms/showers are clean. Wifi is free but very weak. Close to Grove City Outlets. Fishing pond across street from campground. Campground is what you expect from a KOA.

Very large campground. Mainly permanent sites. Nice facilities and pool. Store was well stocked and prices reasonable. Close to Cook Forest activities. Nice hiking trail adjacent to campground. Nice playground and small 9-hole mini golf. WiFi available for $2.00 per day for 1st device (speed was slow to average). Sites for weekenders are jammed on top of each other staggered back to back in several rows on a slight grade. Should be a 1/3 less sites for the space available. Why campgrounds do this confuses me. Most people would pay a few dollars more for some extra space which would make up the $ lost from packing us in like sardines. Got VERY busy and loud on weekend (wouldn't be so bad if not such close quarters). We could hear every word spoken by campers behind and beside us. Our site was not level. Noticed that the 4 available pull-thru sites are literally feet from the road with only a split rail fence separating. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We would NOT stay here again on a weekend.

We stayed here back in 2012 and rated the park a '6'. It was under new ownership at the time. What a difference 2 years made for this campground! Although sites are still tight, many new amenities were added and the place is very nice. New bath houses, new patio sites, lots of activities and the staff is super friendly. Looks like another expansion going on across the bike path. The new owners obviously know what the campers are looking for and seem to be providing it. Our site had cable, decent Wi-Fi, and the hookups were where they needed to be. Could use a few shade trees for the playground and sandbox. The equipment gets so hot in the full sun. We look forward to returning now.

Did a one night stay during the week to see what the campground was like after a friend told us about it. They are usually very busy during the weekends. Grounds were clean and sites were fairly level but very cramped. We stayed in a riverfront site which had a nice view of the water but it is a drop-off to the water's edge. You need to keep an eye on any little ones. There seems to be a lot of permanent sites, including an area where the workers doing some drilling in the are are staying. They rent canoes and inner tubes for floating down the river but not after 3pm. Since check-in is after 2pm, you really cannot take advantage unless you are staying several nights. Bike trail runs right next to campground and is very nice. Bathrooms were fairly clean and showers are separate. There is only 1 bath house and it is a fairly long walk from the 'premium' river sites to get to. They need another bath house for sure. Staff was very friendly. No cable, no Wi-Fi, poor reception on TV antenna (you are in a valley). Pool was clean and well maintained. There are train tracks across the river that are very active. I think we heard a train run up or down the hill at least every other hour, including all night. Not the fault of the campground but I don't know how anyone in a tent could sleep. Noticed some open alcohol consumption near our site and one group across the field that was a little loud after hours. Our sewer connection was 20' forward of where it normally would be in a back-in site. Had to hook-up and pull forward to get within 15' to dump. The road in and out is narrow and winding. Had to pull into the grass on the way in so other campers could pass on their way out. If the sites were larger, they added a few more amenities like cable and another bath house, this could be a great campground.

Stayed here several times over the last few years. Most recently on a site which included a concrete patio with wooden decking next to the pull through, two person swing, table/chairs with umbrella and a fire pit. Site was fairly level and clean. Water pressure was good, Wi-Fi connected easily and cable TV worked fine. Pool has been refurbished since our last visit and was very nice. Kids loved the hiking/nature trail and the huge sand pile. Staff is very friendly. Bathrooms are clean and store is well stocked. Tractor ride through the park was a hit on Saturday night and the Sunday breakfast for $5 was a bargain. Amish folks come in on Saturday mornings with baked goods for sale. There is a small fishing lake across the road. Did not fish or see anyone fishing but looked nice. There are some permanent sites in two different sections, All seemed very well taken care of and the campers were friendly. Slight noise from the back road that runs past the campground but not much traffic at night. Close to Grove City outlets and only 3 miles off the interstate. Rates are higher than other campgrounds with similar offerings but we have never had a bad experience here and will return again.
