Great park for an overnight, but I decided to use it to get off the road for a few days. Staff escorts you to your site and offers suggestions for sit-up. Wi-Fi worked fine. Laundry room is clean and only $2.50 to wash and dry. Water pressure is a little low. Dust from the gravel road is bad when people exceed the speed limit. My vehicle had a white dust coating on it. The CG is in the country but there are many street lights, too many in my opinion. Some road noise but fairly quiet at night.

A nice campground for an overnight stay! The owners are very friendly and helpful. Sites are relatively level. All utilities worked fine including the Wi-Fi. Noise from I29 is constant, especially when the trucks run over the rumble strips.

Very nice park next door to the casino. All sites are pull thru. Everything worked fine. Park was quiet. Some leveling is required with most sites. I would have given this CG a 10 except for the fact that you are parked head to toe with your neighbor with very little space between. Also, the sewer hook-up is recessed under a metal cover and doesn't allow for a secure mating with standard sewer hose.

The campground is far off the beaten track. The road to it is gravel and almost a mile from the "main" road. There were a lot of seasonal campers there. Great CG for families; playground, swimming, miniature golf, and a sort of hayride. Sites are mostly grass. The sites they use for transients are mostly on the ends. Wi-fi was okay. Cell reception was acceptable. Satellite depends on your site due to trees. My main issue with the CG was the electric. There was a single box for 2 sites, both 30 amp. My neighbor for the one night I was there was in a Class A. The circuit breaker for the box (a couple of sites away) kept blowing. The manager showed us where it was and I reset it a couple of times, the breaker was Hot to the touch. Not a very good set-up. There were no sewer hook-ups in the transient area and they charge $7 to dump.

The campground is tucked behind a row of stores and services that provide all basic needs within a walk, bike ride or short drive. Positives: asphalt roads (mostly); wi-fi is okay since it was up and down during my stay; not a lot of long term campers. Negatives: Most sites are not level. My site: Most sites are wide with a gravel red dirt pad and a grassy area. My site was one of the odd ones with mostly dirt and it faced my neighbors. The sewer connection was high which required me to monitor the hose when draining waste. I would chose a different CG if I ever return to the area.

Strange layout of sites. Gravel roads and sites. most sites require leveling. Internet okay, I had some connection issues but it worked. I suspect there were campers streaming video as it dropped drastically in the evenings. You are on the edge of town in a wooded area so satellite coverage is iffy.

A nice park out in the country. Mostly grass sites. No Sewer. There were a lot of families there and the kids were having a great time. The sites are staggered so you are not right on top of one another but you are close. Not sure if I would want to be there in a heavy rainstorm. The entrance is marked with a lot of scrapes in the payment since the driveway climbs dramatically off the highway. You do get some noise from US 20 but it quiets down at night. It is a short drive to Sandusky and Cedar Point. The wi-fi works but is limited by the CG.

Date of Stay:

Small campground close to everything. CG is behind a self storage area on a narrow, dusty gravel road. The CG is the only acceptable CG in the Altoona area. Most sites are NOT level. Wi-fi works but signal is weak. Cable is available and provides analog and digital channels. Satellite signal can be received in lower numbered sites that aren't blocked by trees. Little road noise except from the neighborhood next to the CG.

The positives - great location on the edge of the battlefield and just down the road from the visitor center. Horse stables if you need them. The negatives: High cost for mediocre campgound - $50 Their math 6x$55=$348 Web site says all taxes included but they forgot the Gettysburg tax and so did the clerk that checked me in. Assigned to a occupied site. Overgrown gravel sites and hard to tell where the site begins and ends. Roads are loose gravel and dusty. Road to the 400 section is one lane road but 2-way traffic. Site is narrow and drops off drastically when you step out the door. You have to block the entrance during check-in. It's best to enter from the Rt. 134 (Taneytown Road) exit from US 15 rather then drag your RV through downtown Gettysburg. Wi-Fi: horrible. Management knows it's an issue but they haven't fixed it. There is even a sign in the laundry room saying so. If you know it's a problem why not try to fix it? Just because the CG is also a stable, it doesn't have to look like a rundown farm.

This is the third RVC outdoors campground I have stayed at and it was the worst one! This campground is ideal for a weekend at Raystown Lake but not for long term (a week or more) or overnight due to it's location. Let's start with the positive. Beautiful views of the lake and mountains. Very quiet at night. Little light pollution at night so it's a great place to view the stars. There are NO sites with a sewer hook-up. You have to search their web page to uncover this fact. The dump station is well marked on the way into the campground but not on the way out. I didn't see a level site in the CG. Most sites are gravel, but there are some that are concrete or asphalt. Trash pick-up times are not on handouts. One night there was no hot water in the shower. Cable is fuzzy. Wi-fi worked great but the park was not busy while I was there. AT&T cell phone coverage was excellent.

This is a former KOA and still shows up on some GPS's as a KOA. The new owners have installed new utilities throughout the park. The roads and sites are gravel. There is a problem of drainage on some of the sites. I was there for a week and the site beside never dried up. The buildings onsite are in great shape. They have 2 pools and a hot tub (not open). The CG is close to I95 but traffic noise is not that noticeable. The Wi-Fi worked very well, but the park wasn't that busy. A previous comment stated that lighting wasn't a problem, but I disagree. There are street lights throughout the park in addition each site has a light on the electrical box. Unless you have light blocking window shades you will get a lot of light at night. This is a great CG to stop at overnight if traveling I95.

OMG this campground is huge! it is right on the beach and depending on what you want to pay you can be close to the beach. All utilities worked fine. Wi-Fi slowed down occasionally but no real issue. Nice touch for cable was that the coaxial was already attached and all you had to do was unroll it and attach it to your rig. Laundry was the size of a laundromat but it is costly ($2.50 to wash, $0.25 for 8 minutes to dry).

Excellent county park. There are a lot of activities in the park and it does get busy but the park closes at sunset. Everything worked fine except the Wi-fi was slow at times.

Date of Stay:

Excellent state park on the edge of Savannah. There are only 18 full hookups and they are costly. The rest of the sites are water and electric only. There is no Wi-Fi at the sites but there is a hot spot at the office. Very inconvenient.

This is a great county run park! Everything worked great. After 8pm campers have the entire park to themselves. The entrance to the park is locked at 8, but is the code is provided for after hours entry. Good luck on getting a satellite signal due to the forest. The roads are crushed rock and are in need of leveling.
