Rate reflects a combination of Passport America discount for 2 days and Good Sam discount for 2 days. Cross between "old-timey" and resort. Lots of amenities and very friendly folks. Roads a bit rough and bridge into park scary, but perfectly OK. Most transient sites on grass with fair amount of space and we had FHU with cable. Our cell phone (Consumer Cellular/off ATT towers) was NOT effective. WiFi was slow at times but available. Quiet hours WERE quiet, which was a treat. I had a problem with furnace and they called a gentleman who came after work, figured out the issue, went home and had a part, came back (about 25 minutes one way), and fixed furnace for $40 labor. Pool was nice (cool) but refreshing. Did not see any recycling efforts, though office said their trash hauler had discontinued doing recycles (boo-hiss). This campground is reasonably priced and close to a number of areas: Chautauqua Institute, Lilydale, Audubon Nature Center, Lucille Ball Museum, Panama Rocks. We would camp here again if we came through. We camped at Hidden Valley Camping Area in a Motorhome.

There is very little bad that can be said about Hidden Valley. It is secluded, and quiet, but, within 10 miles of Warren, Pa. to the south, and about 5 miles from Jamestown on the north. There is a grocery store (Tops market) about 5 miles from the campground in Jamestown. To the south is a Walmart and Gas in N. Warren. The gas there is about 5 cents cheaper than in Jamestown. Be aware, that some of the roads in the area are among the worse in the US. The excuse we hear all the time is that the winters are very severe, and tear up the roads. The campground is clean. The bathrooms are well maintained and clean. The people are very friendly and helpful. The camp store sells propane at a reasonable price, along with other things you are likely to need. There are several pull through sites, and many back ins and some tent sites. Each site has a fire-ring and picnic table. Most sites have gray water hookups, and they come around once a week to drain the black water tank. However, when it rains a lot, it can become very muddy. None of the roads are paved. There is WIFI and Cable TV. The WIFI is OK when there isn't many people on it. However, it slows to less than a crawl when it is heavily loaded. The cable is good, with many favorite channels, including Turner Classic Movies. The park seems to stay right on top of things where it comes to maintenance.

In our opinion, it is a great place to stay. We camped at Hidden Valley Camping Area in a Travel Trailer.

Our grass pull-thru site was more than long enough for our 40 ft RV and toad. Very friendly and helpful staff. Campground was clean and well-maintained. Our site was somewhat unlevel, mostly front-to-back. Septic hookup was for gray water only. Good selection of cable channels. No trees to block our satellite TV. Fair Verizon signal. This campground is mostly seasonals with about dozen or so sites for over-nighters. Do not use exit 12 on I-86 because it has an 11 foot bridge. From west use exit 11 or from east use exit 14. We camped at Hidden Valley Camping Area in a Motorhome.

I love that a campground escorts you to your site after a long day of driving. We only stayed one night en route to our weekend site but wish we would have stayed longer. Very clean and friendly people. Suggested two pizza places that delivered to our site, which we took advantage of. Also topped off our propane for the remainder of our trip. Didn't get a chance to use the pool but it looked very nice and clean. Definitely on our return list should we get back to the area. We camped at Hidden Valley Camping Area in a Motorhome.

The rate reflects my Good Sam discount. The overall park was nice and very clean. The entrance and inside roads were a bit rough as there were some very deep potholes. Don't let the one lane bridge scare you when you pull in, it will hold your weight. Our pull-through was grass and level. The park has a honey wagon that will pump you out in the morning as long as you call the night before. You are allowed to dump the grey water in a special in ground system at your site. With permission, you can wash your coach but not on the weekend. The staff was very nice and helpful. Do not use exit 12 / Main Street unless you are shorter than 10 feet!

What a gorgeous park! Lovely friendly people and very accommodating. Could easily spend a week here if we had the time. The pool looks very welcoming. The propane station was easily accessible right in front of the office. I have a heavy rig and have had trouble in wet areas in the past. Was a little worried about the site being grassy but was assured that there was plenty of gravel under the grass. Got set up and all seems very stable and there has been plenty of rain the past couple of days. The grass actually makes for a very homey feel to the site.

I had power problems here. Could not use the 50 amp service. I suspected I might have problems with the power but let the EMS do its job. My EMS shut it down and a check of the voltage at the pedestal confirmed one leg was low 106 to 108 vac. Park maintenance came to check it out, but as it was a weekend could not do anything about it. I had to jury rig to the 30 amp plug as that leg had correct voltage but had to alternate using my front and rear air cond on the 30 amp. Stayed an additional night due to the extreme heat and not wanting to travel on the hot day. Thought mgmt might offer a discount due to the low voltage but no dice. They did offer to move me but a check of that site also showed a marginal voltage. There is a small ramped bridge to cross when entering the park and it has wood planking in poor condition with some nail heads sticking up. It was quiet at night, but plenty of yapping dogs during the day. Showers and restrooms in poor to fair condition and very dated. Very good Wi-Fi, Verizon cell service was spotty but useable. Supposedly new owners, but I did not see any updates or improvements. I will not be staying there again. We camped at Hidden Valley Camping Area in a Motorhome.

We liked this "no frills" park. Quiet. Nice grassy field for short timers, but no sewer connection. Pull throughs and back ins available. Excellent cable TV, weak WiFi. Pleasant staff. Our Verizon phone and broadband connection was weak and intermittent. Close to Jamestown. New owners last month, that may cause some changes. We camped at Hidden Valley Camping Area in a Travel Trailer.

Hidden Valley is a no frills kind of place, but most adequate for overnight parking. Lots of well maintained yearly park models and lots of green grass for the other campers. Had everything we needed except sewer. Management was friendly and accommodating. We were just passing through, but would stay here again. We camped at Hidden Valley Camping Area in a Fifth Wheel.

This large park has a large number of full-time and seasonal residences, some of which are travel trailers while others are more permanent homes. An open field area adjacent to the store serves as the campground area for transient guests. There is very little shade in this area, and while that is desirable for satellite users, it could be quite hot in the summer sun. The park is very quiet as it is located well away from the highway. The campground offers excellent Wi-Fi service and cable hookups with loads of channels. There are no septic hookups at any of the campsites. We camped at Hidden Valley Camping Area in a Motorhome.

Very nice staff. When checking in staff mentioned local art festival going on this weekend. Large pull-thru's on grassy area. Leveled easily. Very quiet, not by any many road or train. About 10-15 minutes from NY interstate 86 but worth it. Nice location to visit Jamestown or surrounding area. Lots of seasonal homes but very well maintained. People take pride in there property. Would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Hidden Valley Camping Area in a Motorhome.

299 Kiantone Road. Access over short narrow bridge, but we make it comfortably with 45' motorhome. Very friendly owners and staff. Approximately 10 miles south of Jamestown. We camped at Hidden Valley Camping Area in a Motorhome.
