Rate reflects weekly rate. Very nice campground located just off I-15 at exit 261. There is a railroad track behind the campground but the trains go by so slowly that we didn't really notice them. No highway noise to speak of either. There is Flying J at this exit as well, so refueling couldn't be more convenient. My major issue with this park is the address on their website. It took us to the wrong place. We were told by the staff that the post office changed their address and it has been a problem since. You will want to take Exit 261. You can see their sign from the exit. If you'd rather use GPS coordinates they are: n 40 11.357, w 111 38.448

Rate based on weekly rate. This is a great place to stay if you want to visit Lake Tahoe, Reno, Carson City or Virginia City, which is what we did. Site are concrete pads with gravel all around, so no dust blowing around. There is a pool, hot tub, laundry, hair salon, store, propane, gas and diesel fuel and playground available so you can get pretty much everything you need without leaving the campground. If you do need more, there are plenty of restaurants and retail stores five minutes away. There is a Walmart Supercenter nearby as well. I was able to wash my truck and trailer for a $5.00 fee which was great. We are full timers and find that many RV parks don't allow washing of rigs. We would certainly stay here again if we find ourselves in the area.

Rate based on monthly rate, minus electric. This is a great RV park! Plenty for the young ones to do with the pool, playground, teen center, fishing or just paddling around the lakes. We had a pull through site toward the rear of the park with plenty of room between us and our neighbors. There are seasonal campers here, but since it's a city owned park there are no trashy sites or rowdy campers. There are coyotes in the area so keep an eye on your pets. We have family in La Jolla, and this was our best value for visiting them and the San Diego area.

Very nice state park with plenty of hiking trails, swimming and playgrounds. Their web site and reviews here tell you that there is Wi-Fi and big rig access. Both of these statements are a bit misleading. The Wi-Fi is only available at the camp store and there are very few sites that can accommodate a "big rig". We were originally given site 247 on the Chester loop but we couldn't get our 40' fifth wheel backed into the site. The trees were too close for us to maneuver into the site. Leaving the Chester loop was another challenge. The road is very narrow with trees right up to the edge of the pavement. This makes negotiating the curves difficult at best. I had to swing so far to the right on one curve that was actually driving off the pavement and onto an unoccupied campsite. I only missed the tree on the left by 3 or 4 inches. We ended up in site 26 in the North East loop which was a full hookup site. Unfortunately we had to shorten our stay by one day because the site had been reserved. Bottom line, If you have a long rig don't stay anywhere in this park except the North East Loop which is only loop with full hookups. There are only 30 sites available in this loop and most won't handle a unit over 30' long so reserve early. I think site 26 is actually the largest site in the campground.

Beautiful park with large, level campsites. We had a great view of Pymatuning Lake and enjoyed watching the boaters out cruising and kids splashing in the swimming area. Each area of the campground has a restroom/shower and laundry facilities just a short walk away. We had a satellite friendly site but were also able to pick up quite a few local stations over the air. Our Verizon had a strong signal so using the phone or MiFi wasn't a problem. I would highly recommend this campground to anyone looking for a family friendly place for reunions or other such gatherings. Take note though: The Jamestown Campground is located 2 1/2 miles from the Pymatuning State Park headquarters. If you call the park you can get the exact address for your gps.

This is a very peaceful, well maintained campground. There are a number of outdoor activities in the area such as hiking, biking, boating and rock climbing. We have a 40' fifth wheel and had no trouble backing into site 2. Site 3 is also big rig friendly and has a clear view of the southern sky for satellite reception. The antenna only received a couple local channels. Also, sites 2 & 3 are paved with a paved patio, fire ring and picnic table. Ice and firewood are available at the park office right across from site 2. Our Verizon struggled to get a decent signal so our MiFi was spotty at best.

$17.00 reflects Passport America rate. This is a great little rv park. Very convenient to all the area offers. We were here for 4 days and wish we had 4 more to explore the Blue Ridge Mountains. The park itself is spotless. The bath houses are the cleanest I've seen in a campground and the murals inside them are nice surprise. It shows you how much pride these owners have in their park. Speaking of the owners, they are always busy doing something to improve the park or to make your stay here a pleasant one. The hookups are newer and worked great. The wifi is strong and fast. The water pressure is very good too. You can fill your propane tanks on site and when the cafe opens in May, you can get yourself filled up on site too. We will be back!

I didn't stay at this park but did a drive through just to check it out. The park looks nice but I won't be camping there because of the road up. There's are signs warning of 25% grades and they aren't kidding. If you're pulling a trailer I'd suggest dropping it somewhere and driving up to the campground for a look. I did see one Class A up there but it was the camp host's and had the first site.

Rate reflects Passport America rate. Very nice park that has had many updates. The owners/managers live on site and are very enthusiastic and helpful. No problems getting our 40' fifth wheel into or out of the site. W-Fi was pretty good and pool was very clean as is everything else here. We would gladly stay here again.

Rate reflects one week at the Passport America rate and one week at the Good Sam rate. This was a quiet, clean park. There are a couple older, permanent trailers here but they are kept up. The clubhouse was active with bingo, karaoke, movie night and other activities. Overall this is very nice park. The only negatives I could add would be that there are not very many 50 amp sites, which wasn't an issue for us, and the sites are narrow. I would have rated this place higher if it weren't for those two things. We stayed here on an end site (151) in a 40' fifth wheel and would stay again.

Rate reflects Escapees rate. The sign reads Maxie's Overnight Campground and I wouldn't recommend staying any longer than that. We stayed here 5 days and didn't care for it at all. They try to take care of it as best they can but it's just not designed as a "campground". It's situated right along Hwy 90 which is very busy all day and all night. There is a lot of heavy truck traffic not more than 100 feet from the campground. I would not stay here again

This place has the potential to be a nice campground but it's showing it's age and neglect. They have many seasonal, or permanent, residents that have a lot of clutter around their trailers. The one closest to us has a steady stream of visitors, including the police, and a 4 wheeler they used often. The Wi-Fi isn't provided by the campground but rather by a permanent resident for a fee. We paid $12.50/week per device. The campground is located right off the interstate so it's convenient for overnight or short stays. Not the worst place we've stayed but doesn't deserve more than three stars.
