Chose this park due to the closeness to the outlet mall as that was the purpose of the trip, only a 5-10 minute drive. We arrived after dark. The office staff was friendly and escorted us to our site. The site was a long gravel pull-through that left lots of room for the coach and toad. The sites were of average size. The park was clean and well cared for. Trash picked up at your site daily. Our roof mounted Direct TV worked fine, but as others have mentioned it may be to the lack of leaves on the trees. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Peaceful wooded campground. Decent access roads with gravel sites. Power ok, did not use water or sewer, Wi-Fi abysmal, Verizon cell ok. Satellite worked, but probably only due to leaves being gone. We will consider this campground when next in the area, but will also take another look at the alternatives. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our stay was a pleasant. The sites are large. The owners are friendly and helpful. Very clean facilities. Wi-Fi was weak. Not enough band width, but it was accessible. The park is very scenic. A place we'll definitely come back to. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed in this park a couple of times on our way south. It is clean and neat with excellent customer service. It is a great stopover for snowbirds. We had to make a late reservation change due to truck trouble, and we were treated very well. We found the nature trail for the first time, and it is great! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed here before and we think each time there are noticeable improvements. The sites are big, level and easy to get into. There are many beautiful plantings all over. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We used this campground as an overnight stay, but wished we could have stayed longer. It was a beautiful campground set among lots of mature trees. The sites were extremely well maintained with a significant amount of rock and not even any visible weeds growing in the rocks. We were level without needing any blocks. The utilities worked well and the cable TV channel selection was robust. Everything was clean and well cared for. This is a very nice place and we'd come back without hesitation. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of the best KOAs we have been in. We stayed in a deluxe site (hence the higher rate). These are fantastic with a large wood deck, patio table and chairs, a two person porch swing, and a large fire pit with seating. Park is sufficiently off the freeway so nice and quiet. I marked it down from a 10 because the roads and parking spots are tight especially with a motorhome. You need to be careful on your way in/out. Nevertheless, we will be staying here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has everything a family needs: pool, playground, activities, pet park, big rig access, Wi-Fi, cable TV. Pleasant and helpful staff. Very clean . Fire pits raised from ground and secure; they have a grill attached. Grove City outlets are close by. We would definitely camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
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. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground was a very pleasant surprise. It was very clean, staff was friendly and helpful. We had a pull through, which was level and quite long. Pool looked well maintained and inviting. If visiting or passing through the area we will definitely stay at this campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a wonderful KOA. We stayed at site #104 which is one of their patio sites. It has a large deck you pull in next to, a swing, table with sun umbrella, a charcoal grill and fire pit. It had multiple sewer drop locations to choose from and the other hook-ups were close. The dog playground was very nice (but slightly overgrown). The pool was just re-tiled, very clean, and warm. This is a very nice nature walk/bike trail through the woods which my son loved. We did pay a bit of a premium for the site, but it was worth it. The downside was the tree which was part of the deck area. It limits where you can put your camper and put your awning out. The seasonals are out of the way of the transient campers and very quiet. The activities were a bit slim the weekend we were there but the outlets shops nearby can make up for that. Make sure you bring some leveling blocks for the sites as ours was uneven. Otherwise, this is a great KOA and I will camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was just a stopover on the way down south. It is conveniently located off I-79. The staff was courteous, friendly and helpful. The park was wooded and looked quite nice. The size of the sites was adequate. In wet weather, as we had, the sites didn’t drain well. Wi-Fi worked perfectly. The dog park was the biggest we have ever seen. The rest rooms were a bit tired but in excellent condition and were very clean. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Wooded campground located three miles from I-79 Grove City exit. We stayed on a "patio site" which was very nice, but pricey at $68 per night. Our site (#85) included a very large concrete patio with chairs/table/swing set/fire ring. Very nice. Only downside was that this particular site backed up on Route 258, which was fairly busy in the day, not so much at night. Other patio sites are not as nice with smaller concrete or wood patios. Campground is slightly hilly with some tight turns because of the trees. Overall, a nice place to stay and a good location. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Spacious entrance and check-in area. Our pull-through held our 33' rig, tow dolly and two cars without 'double parking". We were escorted to our site. A water pressure regulator is critical because the water outlet at some sites is not adjustable—it is either off or on. There are several seasonal/semi-permanent sites, generally sequestered into one area and most well kept. We were there off season so the pool was covered. Office staff were helpful. Despite filling up over the weekend it was quiet. We plan to return in December when we visit family in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground although a bit pricey. The eastbound signs off I-80 bring you in to the campground over a narrow road. However, it is a lovely place and a great stop for the final night of our 4-1/2 month trip. We'd stay here again if returning home through western PA in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Somewhat challenging road in, but there are actually several options, which are detailed on the site map given at check-in. Lots of recent improvements and the best Wi-Fi we've found in a month of camping. Long level pull-throughs for easy in and out. Very pleasant atmosphere and caring staff. Would stay there again for a night or more. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here over Memorial Day weekend. We had one of the few water & electric only sites. The campground was nice it was a bit tight getting into the site we had but it was nice. The mosquitoes were the worst part of the weekend. As far as the campground: the dump station was a pain in the butt to use, however they told me that it was going away soon. I would camp here again. Just make sure if you don't have a full hook up site, or make sure you plenty of sewer hose to use the dump station. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Our second visit here. We tried one of there patio sites. It was nice, it would have been perfect if we would of have enough room to put our awning out.There was a huge tree that prevented the awning for extending out. Other than that, the campground is great. If you are in the upper sections you may get a little road noise and the road is a little tight. We were in the lower section(site #69) and there was no road noise. Great staff, well maintained. We would return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice park in the woods. Had a pull though site and managed to sneak in satellite TV between trees. It is a little of the east west path but seemed worth the 8 mile drive down. Outlet mall in town if you are into that sort of thing. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pretty, shady campground in hilly country. Lots of seasonals, but they're kept neat; some are decorated with a sense of whimsy. At least one campground worker is Amish, and arrived for work via horse and buggy: that was neat. Some road noise from the country road; otherwise quiet. Our only complaint was the low water pressure. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Well kept campground. Access roads are a little tight if you have a long camping unit. Sites are nice size. Some sites have cement patios. Road noise is very noticeable from sites on the back side of the campground. We probably would return here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is an excellent campground, convenient to the interstate but far enough away so there is no road noise. Our site was right across from the office, and access was easy. The site was very long and wide. I can see how other reviewers had different experiences with sites in the back. The free Wi-Fi worked very well. The high point for us is the huge fenced dog park. This well maintained area is the largest we have seen in our travels. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for an overnight on our way to Ohio. Easy access off of route 80 to route 79. This was a very nice, clean campground. They had a nice pancake breakfast too. Our site was all the way in the back of the campground which made it a little difficult to pull our 35' fifth wheel through the campground. There were some trees and bushes scraping the sides of our camper as we were trying to get to our site. The staff were very nice and helpful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice campground - the front desk personnel were very friendly and helpful. It appeared that about one half the spaces were seasonal sites. The space we were escorted to was very treed and in an area surrounded by seasonal site visitors who were not there so we felt very lonely. We were staying for 4 days, so the next morning we asked to move. They picked a great site for us and guided us in. We met some great people and had a great time. I would highly recommend this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a nice park but with a 40' motorhome and a toad, it was really a tight squeeze. We had a nice site which was supposed to be deluxe but probably wasn't. The site was long and somewhat level. The staff was very friendly. There are seasonals but where we were they did not seem to be a problem. I would pick my site carefully. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a nice campground. Our site was ample in width and length for our motor home and our toad. That being said, some of the sites are very tight. There are a lot of seasonals here but we did not find it a problem. Nor were the trees a problem in our site. A lot of the sites are not level, so we would suggest checking your assigned site out before going there. Tooling around the park with anything large would not be an option. There are lots of children here (as you would expect). We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nightly rate was $42, less the 10% KOA member discount, for a 30 amp full hookup site with cable. This place was a disappointment. We selected this campground based on the reviews here. The principal business of this KOA is seasonal campers. They are all over the campground, not in a dedicated area, and take up roughly 50% of the sites. The campground is densely shaded. The seasonal campers give the place a shabby look. There is one old rig with green moss or algae growing all over it. This place is not up to what I believe the KOA standard to be. In addition, a seasonal camper across from us ran a leaf blower for 30 minutes before I called the office to ask them to stop the noise. A staff member drove by in one of their carts, but didn't do a thing (clearly didn't want to perturb the seasonal camper). The noise went on for another 20 minutes. This woman was blowing every leaf and leaf particle off her site. The following morning, they started up the power washer. Thank goodness we headed out of the campground for the day. The restrooms and showers are clean. Overall, it's fairly quiet, although you can hear I-80/I-79 in the distance. We had a site away from the kids' action up front. There are about 20 channels on the cable, and the free WiFi works well - there are several antennas located throughout the campground. We would not stay here again due to the seasonal factor. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground itself is wooded. The site we were in was large and was not close to other campers. However, saying that they are big rig friendly is not exactly true. The road to the park is marked 10 tons, most 40 foot plus are over 10 tons. The road inside the park is very narrow and not passable for anything larger than 40 feet, and even that would be tight. Other than that it looks like a very nice campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Overall the campground is a nice place to stay if you are passing through or looking to shop at the Grove City Outlets. The sites are very close together and some of the larger fifth wheels and motorhomes were slide out to slide out. Almost everyone camps with animals here, but they seem to clean up after themselves and the dogs/cats were never a problem. There were no campground activities planned for the weekend. My only problem with the campground was the owner. As advertised in their brochure we were given upon checking in there was supposed to be a free breakfast for mothers on Mother's Day. Being that we were a group of moms we decided to try out the breakfast only to be charged $5.00 each. When I inquired about the "free" breakfast for moms he stated that he decided not to do that because they hadn't collected enough donations for the Kamp and Kare weekend. Not that I mind donating to a good cause, but they should not advertise a free breakfast all weekend and then decide the morning of to change their plans without letting campers know. I also tried to purchase a few things in the store and was left standing for 5 minutes while 4 people (including the owner) sat and talked about vacation plans. I would recommend this place as a one night stopover, but not necessarily a destination point. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice campground. The sites are large enough. They are not huge. There is nice vegetation between the sites. The wi-fi worked fine and the cable was limited but,Ok. The staff was pleasant. We have stopped here before and will again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground, spots at front are a bit noisy, as they are close to the road. Many mature trees, lots of shady spots, but spots are close together with out separating trees, typical of KOA campgrounds. Very helpful young people at the front desk. Very close to the outlet mall and Mercer Raceway Park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a very nice and quiet campground. Staff was very helpful. We especially enjoyed the hiking trail. We enjoyed the Amish baked goods sold on Saturday morning. We would definitely return to this campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
My biggest complaint with this campground was the scheduling issues. I have two dogs and I requested to have a RV/Big-Rig site near the dog walk area. I was told over the phone when I booked the site, it would be one of the sites near the dog walk area. Imagine my surprise when I was told our site was clear across the campground in an area heavily populated with seasonals. I also was quite clear that I had a 34' motorhome that was towing a Honda CR-V. I did get a pull-thru site but the nose of the rig was in the road and the bumper of the tow vehicle was also in the road! The front desk was staffed with polite but unhelpful people who really didn't care to resolve any issues I had. Fortunately, I did not stay here for more than one night. I will not camp here again because of the poor service received by the staff. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We really enjoyed ourselves at this park. They had a really nice pool and store. We stayed at a deluxe site, and it was just beautiful. It had a cement pad, metal table with umbrella, a porch swing, and a fire ring that had a wooden ring bench surrounding it. The fishing creek is a short walk out of the campground, but it was nice too, I caught some of the largest bluegill I've ever seen in my life. It was catch and release, but that was OK. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
One of the really good KOA parks. On this 30 day road trip we stayed here on July 8, and again on on July 30. Exceptionally clean, with helpful office staff and guides. We were charmed by the couple who drove into the park in their proper Amish horse and carriage and then drove back up five minutes later in a golf cart (they can utilize the tools of the non-Amish employer). A repeat visit is in the works. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground located just minutes from the outlets and quaint shopping town of Volant. Many sites were spacious while others were the typical, narrow KOA-style. We were passenger side slide-out to slide-out with our neighbor but at least our sites faced opposite of each other and we had plenty of patio room. Heated pool was very clean as were restrooms/showerhouse. Tractor rides through the campground were a hit with the kids as well as the playground, gameroom, bocce ball, basketball and frisbee golf. The golf was especially challenging since it's located amongst trees! Campstore was well stocked with supplies if there was anything you might have forgotten. This is a decent campground that I would recommend visiting when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Grove City / Mercer (Pennsylvania) KOA owner was very rude to his customer. Upon arrival Friday night with receipt in hand, I checked in at the office. I was presented with a cash register receipt and told to sign. I read the receipt and noted that it did not state that I had a zero balance. I showed my printed receipt from my internet payment explaining that I was prepaid and paid in full, and that I should not have to sign another slip. The owner spoke very curtly telling me "The signature is for liability, you'll sign the slip, or you'll leave." Well I did sign the slip with hesitation, and made a note of the owner's name and the manner in which he spoke to me. The rest of the weekend, he saw me 3 more times and never apologized for his very offensive tone. Instead of paying $42.00 per night for this KOA with a bad attitude, I recommend RV Village in Mercer. I called RV Village today and confirmed their rate of $22.00 per night full hook up, and no additional cost for children. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
What a nice campground. It was very quiet and peaceful during the week. The people that ran the campground were very nice. The bathrooms were very clean. The grounds were well maintained. Overall, I think this is a great campground and we will return. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Nice, quiet, campground. Seems like there are a lot of people that permanently keep their trailers hooked up here because it is a nice area to be. Courteous staff and friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a "destination campground" for us. Located near the heart of PA Amish country, it's very quiet, although there are occasional planned activities. Plenty for the kids to do; easy enough for adults who don't have kids to be located away from the noise! Owners very knowledgable about area activities. If you're into shopping, Prime Outlets are nearby. If you're into quaint downtowns, Volant and Mercer are like a step into the past. Homegrown vegetables are a short drive away; the yummiest home-baked bread imaginable is occasionally for sale at campground office. We camped here for several weeks in both 2004 and 2005 We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We thoroughly enjoyed our brief weekend stay at this KOA. The staff was friendly and very helpful, the campground well-maintained, the facilities very clean, and the store well-stocked. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have reserved a spot for two weeks in mid-July and added a Kottage for our children and grandchildren. Proximity to the Prime Outlets Mall is clearly a plus. Grocery stores, diesel fuel, and assorted restaurants are all within a short drive. Slippery Rock University, an American educational icon, is located one exit south on I-79. If for no reason other than being able to say you have been there, it is worth a visit! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed at this campground early last month and enjoyed our stay. The owner's wife was extremely nice and accommodating as well as the rest of the staff. They helped us to explore the area and gave us great directions to points of interest. The bathrooms were very clean. We are planning to return to this campground later in the summer. A little pricey but very safe and site was gravel but spacious enough for our two slideouts and we had ample electric service (50 amp). We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

During the week we stayed, (early summer 04) we observed a well managed campground. We were told by the seasonal campers that we met, that great improvements have been made by the management during the last several years and the newish owners
have done their best, to rid this KOA of "problem campers" by enforcing reasonable rules! The parks sites are level and spacious. The bathhouses are new and kept clean. A/C never dropped below 115V. The roads thru where a lil tight, but managable for our MH 34'+ toad 17'= 54' OAL. Also very nice and friendly staff. Only downside was, firewood was a lil expensive at $5.00 for a smallish bundle. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 8 / 10 ]
Newer restrooms are really nice. With all the trees it was real camping, lots of room on the sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 1 / 10 ]
If I can save just one family time and money than I will feel much better. KOA was the worst experience! You would think owners of a campground would actually like camping. Heck, you would even assume that they like people. Having no camping experience, they are very rude and unprofessional. The campground itself has no activities and the bathrooms are filthy. With less than 30 amps per two trailers, enough said. Within the past year, they have lost many permanent campers as well as overnighters. Their new logo should be "STAY AWAY FROM KOA." We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 1 / 10 ]
The campground was at one time a fun place, with new ownership everything was taken away and it was not the owners responsibilty to entertain. I will never go back to the campground. The new owner has really ruined our camping experience. Why a person with no camping knowledge would buy a campground, if you are smart you would not go to the Mercer-Grove City KOA We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Although advertised as a family campground, it is not. Very few activities, owner very rude and obviously prefers campers without children. Bathrooms not clean, many sites with insufficient electricity (much less than 30 amps) and cannot run AC if another trailer in the area is, back part of campground smells awful because sewage treatment plant is not kept up with properly. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is very clean, quite, and well maintained. The pool was nice. They have a great catch and release pond that yielded some 3+ pound large mouths. The sites are well spaced and relatively level and the owners are super nice. I would have rated higher, but they charge an extra $8 per kid over two. This is a little steep for the area and there were limited (hayride) organized activities for children. We will camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here over Memorial day weekend. If you have a big rig it is going to be tight for you. There is a steep climb from the office to the campground above and our site was not very level and a bit of a challenge to get into. Bath house is clean but not heated, so it was cold. Wouldn't want to have to use it in the spring or fall when its really cold. You're not allowed to bring a golf cart, but the permanents all have them, and they like to parade into the overnight sites to rub it in. Owner seemed nice ,but very strict. There is not much of a playground for the kids and it is located with the permanent sites not central. They seem to cater to the permanent campers. Overall it has potential, but we will probably not stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a gem in the making. New owners. We were greeted with friendly smiles. Very clean restrooms/showers. Heavily treed which have been trimmed, so there is no problem. Being a family friendly park is highly stressed. Has a catch and release lake. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is mostly a seasonal park. They do have pull through sites, but WiFi is not available on them, only at the office which is only open until about 3 P.M. No cable TV, can get a few channels with antenna. Park was clean, sites were extra long and good space between them. Picnic tables and fire rings at each site. Was nice and quiet. We were visiting family and it was a nice value. Rate was for Passport America. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park is mostly permanent sites with only a few full hook ups for travelers. They do have a large open grassy area with water and electric available. Biggest issue were they advertise big rig access but the pull through sites are short and larger rigs (over 35') would have to unhook tow car to fit. Roads to campground are narrow and interior roads are potholed and muddy when it rains. Be sure and follow campground directions to park, not GPS due to big hill and tight turns described in prior post. On the plus side they honored the Passport rate for our 8 day stay. Our Sprint air card was slow and we did not pay for their WI-FI as signal was weak from our site. We would probably stay again just for the PPA rate if back in the area, otherwise we would try one of the other parks nearby. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Most sites are permanent. We were in a pull-through site that needed gravel badly. It rained most of the time we were here and the site became very muddy. No cable but TV reception was OK with antenna. Charged $5.95 for 24 hours of Wi-Fi then reception at site was weak. Verizon air card worked well. AC power was low. Golf carts are allowed so can be noisy. Water was good. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a Passport America rate. I rated 8 because I feel I got my money's worth and I was lucky to find a relatively level pull-through site. Many sites would present a problem leveling. I arrived after the office had closed, so I picked my own site and it was in the water and electric only area (which was no problem) saving me $2. Getting to the campground might be a real issue for some rigs. The turn onto Skyline Drive is onto an immediate serious uphill grade. A car pulling a trailer would probably drag the hitch getting onto that hill. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We'd stayed here several years ago and have positive memories. This time we stayed three nights, two of which were weekend. There are a large number of "weekenders" that leave their trailers and occupy them only on weekends. They bring lots of noise and smoky campfires. We've never stayed anyplace with as many noisy (smelly) golf carts. Dogs are running loose and it is total havoc. We'll stay here again, but never on a weekend! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Camped in the overnight section. While it was a pull-through, it was very short and unlevel. WiFi is a pay as you go service. Very quiet. Probably will not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a tough place to review. They have over 200 total sites, yet only 10 are set aside for "overnight" stays. The overnight spots are pull-through sites, but are somewhat uneven and a little short for longer rigs. Virtually the entire campground is trailers that are set up permanently, or at least for "the season." Most of the trailers seem to be used as vacation homes. This means on that weekends (and I assume during the summer) the place is full of families and kids. The main activity while we were here seemed to be folks riding around the campground in golf carts. Not very relaxing to an overnight guest. But starting Sunday night the place was absolutely peaceful and quiet. Cell phone and broadband reception were good, and the campground laundry facility was fine. So we would rate this as an OK place to overnight for a day or two, especially if you avoid the weekend. Otherwise, not a destination stop for us. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I have to disagree with some of the previous postings. The staff was very friendly and helpful. This park is very well maintained. This is one of the few parks where the majority of the seasonal sites are very well taken care of and neat looking. Yes, the pull through sites are a little off level, but we are in a hilly area. The 50 amp power and water pressure was very good, and interior gravel roads are in good condition. This is a very nice park, and we would use this park again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is for Passport America. Not sure because we were PA that we got a site with reverse side hookups and two sets of the "lego blocks" to even attempt to level our motorhome, but we would not stay again. OK for a quick overnight, assuming one can stand the repeated falls out of bed from the slopes. Staff was not all that friendly or accommodating. Not sure what else was around, but would look harder next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has a two sides, the seasonal side which is fairly busy, but shaded sites and the temporary sites "on the hill". I prefer the hill side it's treed and away from the permanents so it's quieter. It seems more like camping. The owners can be a little gruff at times. Sites are average size but are sloped, making it hard to level in some cases. Bathrooms are clean and well maintained. Nice campground, very quiet until holidays. Nice pool, tennis courts, basketball, free mini golf. I stay here twice a year. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Passport America rate given. Normal $28. We stayed 2 night for $28.00 total. Site was a pull through and very uneven. This park is set up for seasonals more than travelers. Was close to outlet malls. I would stay here again. Nothing was open yet due to the time of year. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I have not stayed at this campground BUT there is a serious omission in the driving directions provided by the campground website. On highway 62 from I-79, there is a NARROW, LOW-CEILING tunnel under railroad tracks. I have confirmed with the campground that the tunnel has a ceiling of LESS THAN 12 FEET. If you are considering a visit to this campground, definitely get specific directions from the office. DO NOT take the exit off I-79 and follow highway as the website suggests as a possible route. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We picked this campground because they offer Passport discount. Our first site was 190. When we went to plug in, we found a note on the electric box stating that the 50 amp was wired wrong and to "use at own risk." A volunteer who is also an electrician came down to check out the problem. Bottom line is there was significant power differences in the 50 amp plug. So, we moved to space that was next to the beginning of that electric circuit. Space is very awkward to get into due to pine trees and not even close to level! However, the electrical connection was better and more stable so we stayed. Campground has a lot of seasonal campers, and a lot of kids. The hiking trails are nice. The surrounding area is interesting so we are planning to spend the week here. Staff in the office are helpful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I was at RV Village in Mercer, PA tonight, visiting friends, and would like to take an opportunity to write a review of the park. Our friends were on site 105 (w/e). Their site was grassy, and dry ground with good run off. The 1-107 loops are W/E only, most of these sites are at least partially shaded, and provide ample room to accommodate large rigs. I think that these loops are an excellent area for a group camp out weekend. Whatsmore is that there are no permanent campers in these loops. If you need full hook ups though, the pull-thru sites are evenly numbered 172 through 192. These sites are partially shaded, but seem to be really close together. Today was a dry day and these sites show the effects of soil erosion. One year ago, I visited friends camping in these sites and recall that the ground was terribly muddy. The rest of the 109-260 loops appear to be permanent campers, complete with golf carts (tonight was the Golf Cart Poker Run) :roll eyes: There may be an occasional transient site available within. Rates seem simple enough. $22.00/night for Motorhomes and Trailers. $18.00/night for Pop Up campers. There is no extra charge for children. Moreover, there is no charge for visitors (unless staying overnight). The camp store only has essentials. But grocery store and RV dealer are only a few miles away. Late this afternoon the pool was full of people. The evening's activity was BINGO. After dark, was the Golf Cart Poker Run. My overall, personal impression is that RV Village is family friendly and family affordable. I would be very happy to camp in their 1-107 loop, and recommend these to my friends and anyone else looking to stay in Mercer, PA. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
If you're looking for a quiet place to relax and regroup, this is NOT your spot to do it in. This campground is a family campground and there are a lot of kids running around both on bicycles and in golf carts. They also have a problem with barking dogs..don't seem to be too interested in controlling either the dogs or the kids. The sites are wooded, we had one with full hookups. They do have WIFI now, but it's $3.95/day and has a very poor signal unless you're right under the router. Don't think we'll be back... We camped here in a Motorhome.
My husband and I had a nice weekend. Our site didn't have grass because of the pine trees we were under. Out site had water and electric, we asked at the office which sites had sewer. There are only 11 sites with all three hookups. The rest are permanent sites. They also stated they like to keep the pop-ups in a certain section (near the bath house). At the end of your stay we went to reserve a site for Labor Day and she wasn't very nice. We asked to be in a certain area because we wanted to be near our friends with full sized campers. I think she wasn't accommodating because we have a pop-up but we don't need to be near the bath house because we have a toilet/shower combo. That was the only time the staff wasn't friendly or helpful. Also, if you like to fish they have a catch and release pond. I didn't see that stated on their website. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
The campground is clean and has many activities for families. One side of the campground has full hookups. The other side has water and electricity only. We camped on the side without full hookups. We were able to get a 50% discount from the full rate of $26 because of our membership in a camping group. The biggest drawback was the lack of a hard surface at the camp site. Our site was a shady, grass covered surface which included a picnic table and fire ring. I do not know if the side with full hookups has gravel or paved pads. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a very poorly kept park and was in a dense forest. The spots were short and not level. Very narrow and uneven spots. There was no space to park our truck. The park seemed to have permanent or long term campers. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
