This is the second time we have stayed here, we stayed years previously in a tent. As before, we found the campground to be an excellent place to stay, centrally located in touristy Lancaster County, with a well maintained and sparkling clean bath house, and quiet in the evening. The only issue we had was the odd encounter with the camp host, who at about 11PM in the evening came over to our site. My wife was reading a book and I was just relaxing, watching the fire. He told us quiet hours were at 10PM and seemed to indicate that we should not have a fire going. I said that I didn't see anything in the park rules about not having a fire after that point, to which he replied that we just had to be sure not to leave it burning when we went to bed. It was just a very odd and not a very friendly encounter. The site itself was good, a level back-in site, though short was plenty of room for our small unit, and at least offered a decent space width wise. Water and electric were good, and wifi was excellent. The campground itself sits on two levels, with the office surrounded by the smaller sites on the upper level. There is a nice overlook garden with benches and a communal fire pit there as well as a pavilion. The lower level has longer sites for big rigs, many seems very narrow though. Overall it was a good stay.

There are not many options in the Philadelphia area, and even less that are open year round, so it was nice to find a nice, freshly refurbished, state park campground that is. There were a few long term campers in this campground that rebook every two weeks, leaving for some confusion when I pulled in to find someone in the site I had booked. I had happened to book the site just before he rebooked. He was there all winter, and wasn't moving, but there were plenty of sites, so I just choose another, as it didn't matter to me. The host was very helpful and pleasant as he cleared up the confusion. Bath house in this park is brand new and was very clean and well designed. Sites seem to have been all redone and were level, with all hook-ups working well. They were also well spaced and easy to navigate, most were in the open with just a few trees around. The park itself is easy to navigate with paved interior roads and not far from US301 or I-95, but still quiet at night.

We did not stay but were in the area so we checked it out for a potential stay in June. We first drove through the campground and checked out the sites, which seemed fairly nice, some spaced better then others, many with at least some shade. Pool and common areas looks nice too. We went into the office to book a reservation. The woman at the front desk was very friendly and we started the process. She gave us a site and we said we liked it because it was close to the bathrooms, our trailer has no facilities. That is when she told us the deal breaker, the bathrooms are not accessible between 9PM and 8AM. This is not mentioned anywhere on their website. If it were not for that we would have stayed at this campground in a heartbeat.

This is an interesting park as it is a nice looking, modern park in a touristy area but has a lot of long term campers, that while most keep their sites nice, there were a few that kept them not so much. The campground is in a big loop around a hill with a spur where the majority of the cabins are located. The first half of the loop is where they place the transient campers, with the other half, on the other side of the hill, having the full time campers. The loop is paved and all sites are concrete and level. The transient sites have a nice stamped concrete. All are full hook-up and everything worked as expected. Sites were close, but angled such that you were not looking directly into the RV next door. We requested, and were placed, directly across from the bath house, which has single stall showers, a laundry on one end, and a small pool on the other. The showers were kept clean, and the laundry was OK, though several of the machines were not working. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Campground was quiet, but still close to everything, with Dollywood literally backing right up to the campground property.

Very impressive public campground that is very close to Asheville and the Blue Ridge Parkway. The facilities were excellent, modern, clean and well maintained. My site was a full hook-up, paved pad that was level, well spaced from other sites, and had plenty of room. All hook-ups worked as expected. Only drawback for this campground is very poor cell service. While I only stayed here for an overnight, I would like to return for a longer visit.

Campground is about a half mile off the Blue Ridge Parkway down a winding, gravel road. I was traveling the parkway in the off season and this was the only campground open. I got there just before they closed the office. A very friendly young lady swiftly checked me in. The campground is split into two halves, each on a wooded hill with and valley and lake between them. I was placed in a site on the further half. It was a smaller site, water and electric only, but I only needed the power. Power at the site showed a reversed polarity, but since I was the only one in this section, I moved to the next site over. Site was graveled and level. The roads in the campground were all steep and of loose gravel, except right near the office. Very tight maneuvering, but there were some big rigs back in the furthest section. The bath house was very clean but also very dated and unheated. Never could get the wifi to work, even near the campground office the next morning. Office and store was well stocked, even in the off season. I would stay again, but in warmer weather.

A good, quiet campground just minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway. I arrived after hours but they had information for me at the camp office. The campground is spread out into different sections and a mixture of open sites and treed depending on the section. I did not meet any staff, but the camp host came by as I was setting up and welcomed me. Site was graveled and level, all hookups worked well. I found a strong WiFi signal but was unable to connect to it at all. The bath house was a nice facility, clean and well kept. Firewood was available at the camp office on an honor system.

Odd little campground. It is about five years old and the owner does most of the work himself, making for a very rustic, hand built feeling which is nice in a campground. It is clean and well kept, and his clientele are mostly motorcyclists looking to ride the Cherohala Skyway or the Tail of the Dragon, both nearby. This is not a family friendly campground. The campground is on the side of a hill, with a mostly paved, concrete drive up, and gravel sites that are level and tiered. Sites were large with good functioning utilities, wifi was excellent at my site across from the office. Clean bath house, very friendly people, free coffee in the morning, and in a great location to explore the NC side of the Smokies, but a bit pricey for an overnight stay.

This is a difficult campground to review. There are things I really like about it, but their website is also a little misleading and their bathhouse is just terrible. Start with the good, we were camped in the lower portion of the campground on a water/electric site. The sites are in a great location, well spaced, level, with large trees and a picturesque fishing pond. Water and electric were both in good working order. There is some light and road noise from nearby Rt 100, but it died down in the evening. The downside of the location, and what the map and website don't explain, is that these sites are on a different property, even in a different municipality, and more then ½mile from the bath house and the rest of the campground. There was a port-a-pot there, but you had to drive to take a shower. The bath house was the other downer. It had nice showers that seemed to be recently renovated, but one of the toilets was clogged all weekend and the whole place smelled due to poor ventilation. There were no mirrors above the sinks, and it finally it was a struggle to work the lock to the ladies room, we could not open it at all the first night we were there. We never ran into the crazy owner and in fact we only saw one staff member who checked us in when we arrived. She was wonderful, leading us to a site of our choosing and bringing down a large load of firewood which she helped unload. In all I would return, but only if they resolved the bath house situation.

Stayed just one night while passing through. Nice campground, clean and quiet. We were placed in a back-in site that was level and everything functioned well. Friendly staff, no problems at all.

We stayed here for four nights for a special event at Holiday World. It is the perfect location if you are headed to the amusement park, it is an easy walk or a quick shuttle bus ride. Overall it is not a bad campground, it has several areas that are very spread out, which is why I guess they rent so many golf carts. While their facilities are generally good, I found that bath houses were in somewhat poor shape, and while mostly clean, there were times during our stay when they were worse than others. The staff was very friendly, and the shuttle drivers were excellent. They even ran late shuttles to support the event we were going to. We also spoke with the manager at length and he seems genuinely concerned about us having a good stay. Our site was a premium concrete pad next to the lake, but it was not remotely level, with an incline towards the lake. We also plugged in to find the power had a bad ground. Maintenance was out very quickly to fix it, but he could not find the problem so he simply flipped the 20 and 30 amp lines. Not a problem for our small trailer, but could be for larger units. Sites were close together but easy to find, though there are a few tight turns.

This is a very solid KOA, close to Six Flags St. Louis, with a very friendly, helpful staff. Check-in was easy. We were placed in a gravel pull through and guided to the site. Good thing we were as the sites were not well marked and you could easily pull into the wrong one. It was a little off level, but everything functioned correctly. Site was a little overgrown, grass all around the park was not too long, but was due for a cutting. We stayed midweek to visit Six Flags for a convention, did not spend much time in the campground during the day. At night it was very quiet, even with the highway close by, I didn't pick up on much road noise. Bath house was clean and well maintained, and the store was nice and well stocked. Staff was both friendly and very knowledgeable of local attractions. Would stay again if in the area.

Visited this campground for a few nights to visit Adventureland and the surrounding area. I pulled in with no reservations but they had no trouble placing me right where I wanted, by the walkway to the park, so it was just a minute walk from my door to the park gate. Dated, but clean, well kept campground. Everything functioned well. Site was a bit off level, with a sinkhole to one side, and showed its age. Several sites showed brand new concrete pads, but they seemed to only be as wide as the campers, with drop offs on the edges. All roads and sites are paved, and the park is very well laid out. Bathhouse was very clean but also dated with no climate control. Check-in was a breeze, very friendly staff as well as campers, many of whom are work campers working at the park. Park also had a nice pool and arcade, playgrounds, and dog runs for both small and large dogs. Will stay here again when in the area.

Great campground for a stopover or to explore the area. Pulled in on a midweek afternoon got the last site available. Very nice, clean facilities, showers were great, with good pressure and hot water. Very friendly staff, a nice store with a few RV supplies. Sites are all pull through, gravel, and level. All utilities worked well, including WiFi. Only downside is the campground is very open, there are only a few young trees. Sites are close, but not too bad, with a grassy area between each.

The nicest state park campground I have ever stayed in. Beautiful, fairly level, spacious sites, some with tree cover, others in the open. Good electric, but no water at site, and no sewer, though a very nice dump station was available. Even had good wifi at site. Modern, clean bath house. Everything was well kept, nice hiking trails and a swimming lake. Nice new playground. Camp hosts were very friendly. Being that it was just a few miles off the interstate, I used this as an overnight stop, but wish I could have stayed for more. If in the area, I will return.
