This RV park is a bit hard to find for someone not from the area. It is remote and very quiet. Has a large pool. Has a number of permanents who use their spot for weekend get-aways. It is a pretty park and quiet while we were there. Level sites. Helpful and friendly staff. - W Davidson

This Campground was formerly known as Campers Paradise which is when I stayed here. New owners have made improvements which include adding a pool. Very friendly seasonals. - Lakewood Camper

Nice park, quiet and relaxing. Enjoyed to back to basics of camping. Pool was not open for the season, but looked like it would be fun. Many things to do in the surrounding area. Sites were easy to get into. Would recommend park to other campers. - cinnamon

Very out of the way campground. Older campground but the facilities and grounds were clean. Park sites are on grass. Very friendly people and a good site for the money. We would stay here again. - Rick Lechner

Campground is a little shabby but fine. Owner is very nice and involved. There were several seasonal units that looked old and tired. Sites are on grass - need leveling blocks. Voltage seemed low at times despite no need for AC at this time - concern that voltage may be too low to run the AC in the summer. Soft water. Bath/shower facilities are not heated but clean. Down in a valley so no cell phone service whatsoever. Only one TV station comes in strong - NBC station from Steubenville. Pool was not open yet. Small playground area. A little bit off the beaten path. There seem to be many activities in surrounding area. Good for a group as there is a rec building. Would stay here again, wish more commercial campgrounds were as decent as this one. - NancyB

Atwood is an older park and the sites were perpendicular to the road. This makes it hard to maneuver with a 35'. Our group was in section B on sites 308-311. All sites were shady. Water is available on site 310. The roads are very narrow. We saw the Rangers frequently during the day.
The sites across from us had more than 10 cars on six sites. This made for a roudy group and there were no rangers in site at night. The noise went on until 1:30 am. Very discouraging! Hopefully this was a fluke and not the norm. - Tammy7

We stayed out on the Peninsula, Section F. It worked well for our group of 6 campers. People were friendly and quiet. You can fish nearby. The beach is not close by, but you can drive or ride a bike there easily. The showers are clean and free. - breakingwind

I have stayed at Atwood several times over the last few years, always with a group in their group sites. The group sites are electric only with a pit toilet, you have to go to the main campground to use the showers and flush toilets. I found the shower houses to be very well appointed and clean, with plenty of hot water.
This is a large park with a very large campground, filled with mostly seasonal campers. Plenty to do, with a nice activities center where the is slow wifi and games, boating, fishing, hiking, a decent camp store, and a restaurant on site. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Most sites are spacious and vary between shady to full sun. - Cyclonic

There is no selection for my camper. It is an A-liner popup.
This park is very uphill. This means a fantastic view of the lake and surrounding hills. The flip side of this is a lot of exercise, some strenuous if you don't have some kind of transportation outside of your TV. There are of course gulf carts available for a fee.
If you don't want to cook you can go to the concession stand. Decent food reasonable prices. Loud music to go with that. Friendly staff too.
You may have noticed the comments about the tight turns. They are true, the camp provides assistance. We were guided by one of the staff who said he was one of the owners and he was very helpful.
One thing don't forget;
Silly me forgot to mention to the check in girl that we were G.S. card holders which would have reduced the cost of the campsite cost 10% This was the only thing that I would wish they might instruct their staff to ask as a small courtesy. - NanCas

This is a well run park with many activities available. The main downfall for larger units are the narrow roads and steep hills. Much of this park is built on the side of a hill and the narrow roads and tight turns make for a harrowing experience. Once at our site we had a lovely, large and paved pull-thru with a beautiful view. We were in a 39ft motorhome and towing. We had just inches to spare on the turns and we would not recommend any thing larger. In fact, we would not try it again. Our other complaint was the wi-fi, which is offered through an outside vendor for a fee. We were never able to get connected and finally received our money back. For those with smaller units, this is a very nice park. Because of the turns and steep hills, we would not stay here again. - atwig

BAD experience. We entered the park and our first thought was beautiful place. We went to register and that's when the good thoughts stopped. They informed us we would have to unload our car before going up to our "PULL-THRU" spot because we couldn't fit it around the corners even though our RV was only 34 feet long towing a mini cooper on a dolly. Something that might have been mentioned when we booked our site. They didn't have a spot to pull over and unhook the car so there we were doing it in the main thoroughfare while other cars were trying to come in. Then they escorted us up to our "PULL-THRU" and made us pull up to the far side so that a tent camper could use the back portion of the site the next day. Now the hose wouldn't reach the hook-up. We let their management know this and said that the spigot was to be shared with the tent they sent someone up with an extension hose so it could reach the back of our RV. As he hands it to us, he tells us we should probably be storing water in our tanks because often on the weekends when they have a lot of people, they run out of water (LOVELY). We looked on the internet at reviews of this place and sure enough people had complained about them running out of water. Can you imagine? We then turned on our water and the pressure was almost nonexistent. We took our dogs for a short walk and there was hardly anywhere we could walk them. Not a dog friendly place at all. We started adding up the negatives about this place and decided to leave early especially because a Volley Ball tournament was scheduled on Saturday, our departure date, and the manager said we would be hard pressed to find a spot to hook the car up again because of the traffic jams foreseen. We told them about the problems and they just shrugged their shoulders and said: "Sorry." Totally not concerned we were unhappy in the slightest and wouldn't give us our money back. - HurricanTraveler

Dirty showers and restrooms that don't get cleaned but twice a year it seemed. They stink and are nasty. Owners do nothing to park. Weekends are loud and no one respects quiet hours. They drive around in their golf carts all hours and drink all night where ever the action is. This place should get patrolled by security and do something about the cleanliness. Swimming area is dirty and you ever know when or how long it will open. - NE Ohio Camper

New owners May 1, 2009. The over all camp needs a lot of work. I am sure that given a year or two the owners will make it much nicer. The low rating is because there is a high percentage of year round campers. A 9 for the new owners enthusiasm. - stetwood

We are not familiar with the area at all, being from Texas. After some investigating around we chose this park for a few nights on our way to Boston. It appears to be a destination park for lots of folks and does have quite a few residents. We weren't here on a major holiday, but judging by the weekend crowd I imagine this place gets packed. We drove into Pittsburgh two days which was fine. The park is in the middle of nowhere, but the drive is scenic. All facilities worked fine. We stayed in the Red Carpet Row Section. (back-in) Really nice patio and fire ring up against a backdrop of huge trees and creek running behind. Our GPS did not have an optimal route into the park, but the GPS on our phones did. The drive into the park isn't all that treacherous. We have a 37' motorhome pulling a Honda CRV and did fine. As far as kids activities, they have it all. We did rent a boat one day and zip around the lake. There are very few grocery options around or gas stations. Owner/Manager/staff are very nice and helpful. Great place for families and kids or travelers like us. Only downfall to me was, seems everyone started making campfires around 4:00. Some smoke lingers around. - mikel

I have never encountered a greedier campground owner.
Cons: Tiny lots - One side had a camper slide overhanging, the other had a gazebo 2' from our camper bed. No one-way loop for traffic - If your site is near the entrance you get tons of traffic from both directions. Bathhouse - Hot water costs $0.50 for five minutes. Insanity. No sign at wrong turn - GPS/Google maps/etc. send you the wrong way. The owner knows this. There is one wrong turn, which we took. We got stuck on a hill and had to be towed over it. The people that helped us out said that it happens all the time. People are constantly making that wrong turn. Entrance fee - You pay $3.75 to enter the park, THEN pay to do each individual activity. Our family paid for a pavilion for our reunion, but each attendee also had to pay to enter the park. Activities - The tube slide is advertised for age 4 and up, but the children aren't allowed to drag the tube back up the hill, flip it up the hill like a tire flip, or put it on its side and roll it up the hill. They must pick it up and carry it up the hill. What four year old can do this? Heck, what 10 yr old can do this? Also, the concession workers run the tube slide. At one point, my kids were told they were no longer allowed to slide because the worker had to go back to the concession stand. Wifi - Pretty much non-existent. Because there is no cell service at all, you're reliant on this spotty-at-best "wifi" for any sort of communication. Be prepared to walk to another area of the campground to have a strong enough signal to be able to connect.
Pros: The fire ring at the campsite was very nice. The proximity of the creek to our campsite was fun. Lots of things to do to keep kids busy if you're willing to pay extra. Multiple playgrounds (free) that are mostly newer nice ones with a few older, but still serviceable ones, mixed in.
Basically this owner will do anything and everything he can to get more money. - purpleenaj

We stayed in the keyhole full hookups section. The campground folks are great. We were there during trick or treat. There are plenty of activities for the kids. Going back for the Fourth of July this year. If I was a seasonal camper this is where we would be. - psrujak

I guess when you are the only game in town, you can soak folks. On top of the pricey rate they charge extra for kids. $93.00 a night in the sticks is criminal. And for that you can tote your own rubbish, as they don't pick it up. They don't escort you to your site and the "store" is the most dismal excuse for a camp store. It's even dusty.
On the plus side they have good directional signage off I-77.
We had a lovely site. But as the case, a little too close. These patio sites are nice, but have a grand view of A HUGE regional landfill. The buzzards circled several times. There had to be 50 to 100 buzzards in the air.
Then there is the air. Don't know if it's there septic system or the landfill. It stunk so bad we could not enjoy the outside facilities.
The design separates seasonal and over night guest. It a pretty good design. The mini golf looks (we did not play) among the best.
A nice KOA. But the Keep on Adding on, kills the deal. - wdw

Stayed over a popular weekend, as we traveled across the country. We were told only a premium site was available when we called ahead to make reservations. A "premium" site was a narrow pull through site with roadway on both sides of us. When we pulled out our awning, it was into the roadway at the front of the motorhome so we ended up not using the awning. Restroom had a severe sewer odor the entire weekend, even after office staff was advised. The "pond" is really a water runoff collection site with unusable equipment sitting at the edge. No phone reception or internet access even though we were among the closest sites to the office. To add insult, there was a premium charge for having 2 children with us. This is not a place I would stay at again. We travel for months at a time and have done so for years. This review is not because I am overly picky! - Ms Winnie

The people at the front desk were great, ready with any questions you might have. The laundry room was very clean and just one inside door from the office so very handy if you need change. Beautiful views of the fields all around the park. - michelle 17

The park is small but several sites are on the water's edge. It's an older park so the layout isn't the best for large RVs. However, we loved our visit. You can rent peddle boats and kayaks for $10/hr. There is a swimming beach, playground, and lots of docks to fish from. The staff is friendly. The view is beautiful. We didn't use the bathrooms but were told that they were very dirty. Hopefully this was just the result of a weekend that had visitors with no manners and isn't typical of the park. Our site was roomy. - Tammy7

Campsites are a little close together but there is plenty of length for RV. Many spaces for both pull-thru and back-in. Park is very clean as were the restrooms - just old fixtures. The lake is somewhat "murky" but overall a great family place to recreate. - rnuke77

Very nice park along a nice lake, we got one of several sites are right on the lake. There are 4 or 5 walk-in sites on the water. There are NO real trails to walk, but the park owns a 10 to 15 foot strip of land along the water and walking between the lake and private cottages is permitted. We walked about a mile and a half to the left toward the dam and saw some beautiful views. - buzzards27

Nice park. Love that the playground has lots of shade. Site was level. Everything worked. Staff was very polite and helpful. We plan on returning. We stayed a weekend in a travel trailer with a pull through site. Site was plenty long enough for our truck and 32' camper. - krp2nite

Staff was nice. They showed us to our site. Our site was level. Nice pool and catch and release lake, with paddle boats to rent. We had a good fish dinner while here at the office. - deangrimmett

Crowded like most KOA's small sites. Two shower for the entire campground. Not two men and two women, two total. Need to put some money back in to infrastructure. - dmeyer
