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

Stayed here in a 40' MH - site was really long and easily held the MH and tow car. Thankfully we there after the water park closed for the season, otherwise we would have been somewhere else. - denvercats

This is a large water park. The number of things for children to do is amazing. I looked at the park calendar to find a time when the water park was closed because of school yet the campground was open. The gravel site was level. Local OTA channels were poor. Water and electric was good. Picnic table and fire pit. There are easily accessible two dump stations. Several pipeline workers staying temporarily. FHU sites are placed right next to busy road. W&E area very quiet when water park closed. Very nice walking path in the woods. Gravel interior roads easy to navigate. Park staff (owner?) lives onsite and were very pleasant and helpful. I would stay here again if the water park was closed as I do not travel with children. - SunStar203

We picked up our new 5th wheel nearby and they gave us a huge pull through site so that we had room for our rig, truck and U-Haul. We stayed for 3 days. Sites on the hill (50 and up) are best for big rigs, but all sites are nice, graveled, level with large area of grass in between. The water park and campground close the last week of August which was perfect for us. We rode our bikes all over the farm, ran our dogs and enjoyed the company of only a few other rigs. All buildings and grounds were clean and well kept. It is on the edge of the Amish country so be careful to share the road with the carriages and people walking. - Traveler Anne

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

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

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

When we reserved we were told that the rate would be $51/night for a primative site (no electricity, no water, no table). Since there was no other camping nearby, we agreed. Upon arrival we were charged $70/night for two nights (two night minimum apparently). After being escorted to our site (which was nice, by the way) we discovered that although we had been told that no electric sites were available, there were a bunch on the other side of the roar. A campground host agreed to let us move to an electric site on the other side of the road. Anyway long story short-- massively overpriced if only camping and not using the waterpark but good customer service. - Vanman

We would have given this campground 9 out of 10 if not for some self inflicted problems they could have avoided. Things that could have been avoided: 1. Price gauging - Paying $7 for 5 split logs. Doubling the price of golf carts to $130 per day just because it was Memorial Day. Uugh! 2. Mud holes in camping lanes could have been avoided with some gravel. 3. Mini golf flood lights weren't working. 4. Did anyone even attempt to get the newer Sunnyside campsites level? Should have been easy but evidently a challenge for the excavator. 5. No paved or graveled place to pull rig over at northern check-in station. Things that were pluses: 1. Amenities - Clay's is large on amenities. 2. Activities - plenty of activities during the weekend. 3. Cleanliness for such a large and busy park. 4. Camper behavior was relatively quiet. This is a large campground (500 acres) and many of the best sites are taken by permanent campers. Very nice adventure park that we would visit again, especially if they work on the self inflicted short comings. - Sinjin79

Went there for a 3 day concert. They kept up with the influx without missing a beat. Porto's were as clean as can be expected. Very relaxed atmosphere. Had a great time.
Not sure of the actual rate, as the camping was included with the concert tickets. - Oldenphat

Gated with nice landscaping; facilities include gift shop, indoor pool, pavilion, bathhouse, restrooms, play equipment. If you have children, they will enjoy this. However, sites are fairly narrow and if you want a level site, you have about a 50% chance of getting one. One motorhome had its front wheels about 6" off the ground...something no manufacturer would ever endorse. We've had leveling issues in the past. Now for the value rating, the additional fees resemble greed. Need to arrive at 12:30? $6.00. Want your brother and sister-in-law to come for a visit while you're in town? $8.00. Need to wash a dog? $5.00. We never asked if there was a fee for us to wash the ashes off our awnings from the blazing firepits all around us. We are not likely to return. - lkqh

Beautifully landscaped and maintained park. The laundry room is one of the best I have seen at an rv park. Streets are paved with cement patios at each site. Enclosed swimming pool and hot tub are in the same building as the very nice game room and workout room. The park is right in the middle of the Amish community so there is a lot to see and do. Sites are somewhat spacious. Cable was excellent. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. Seems to be a popular place so I recommend making reservations. We were in site 82 and it pretty level. - Coach Perry

Evergreen was recommended to us by fellow RVer's and it didn't disappoint. Easy drive from I-77. We stayed the Saturday night of Easter weekend and the park was full. 90% pull behinds & 5th wheelers. The park is very clean and up to date. The indoor pool and spa offered insurance against bad weather and their was plenty of activities for our 10 year old. Our site #42 was easy to back into with our 37' Coachmen Santara motorhome. Asphalt pad required some challenge to level but manageable. Views along the perimeter of the park are great meadow views with lots of open field to explore. We recommend and would stay here again. - Sinjin79

I have camped here several times over ten or so years. The owners are wonderful, but the overall "feel" of the campground has changed for the worse. The grass in many areas has not been mowed and you can really tell it around some of the many long-term campers. Lots of trucks parked in areas by construction workers make navigating the already tight roads difficult. I am sorry to see this change, but this will probably be my last visit to this campground. - BuckeyeTravels

As others have said owners are very nice and campground is clean. If you have a smaller rig this place will work for you. If your RV is more than about 27 feet, I do not recommend it. There are a couple longer sites but those were always filled. Even with a 27 ft RV, most sited have no place for your tow vehicle to park. The down sides here are the small sites that are close to each other. Almost no real place to even sit outside in a chair. There are many long term folks here that use the open "gray water" drains. Judging by the odor and closeness of the drains, I surmise they are draining more than gray water. Yes, there is free fire wood and raised fire rings but they are so close to other campers it would be a risk and very inconsiderate to have a fire as smoke would be all over your neighbor and probably you too. The driveway in and out is steep and only wide enough for one vehicle to go thru at a time. If someone is coming out you will have to back out onto a busy state route to let them out. Also, seasonal campers are allowed to park their tow vehicles face in towards their RV in the main drive where the dump station, again, creating a one lane situation. If someone is dumping, no one can go in or out because of this. It didn't rain during our stay but if it did, part of your site will be muddy. I would stay elsewhere next time we are in the area. - Wyoming Wanderers

It may be unfair to review, as we didn't "stay" here, but the place was so small we didn't feel comfortable backing our 31ft travel trailer into a spot. Arrived after hours. Back of trailer scraped ground exiting park due to steep driveway. - The Rascal Range

This park is part of Portage Lakes State Park. It's located some distance from Portage Lakes State Park. I initially went to Portage Lakes State Park only to find there was a sheet with directions to Nimisila. It was not possible to follow the directions and drive a motorhome. Neither the street address or a geographic location was on the sheet for us Garmin and Tom Tom users. I finally figured out the intersection of Christman and Nimisila Roads. The actual address is 5550 Christman Road. Only 6 sites have electricity. - grafxman

Rural campground near Canton with mostly seasonal sites. Lots of family activities with large 3' deep swimming pool and adjacent spray park. Sites are grassy and close together. The back-in sites we were offered were not level, so we chose the best of the lot and managed OK. The many pull-thru sites looked fairly level and we would choose one of those if we pass this way again. The on-site laundry and restaurant were excellent and reasonably priced. Nearby Alliance had most national chain stores and restaurants. - Appleknocker

It was a swamp after a recent rain. Muddy site was assigned and vehicle kept sliding on a slight grade when I tried to back in. Would recommend a full hookup site, where they moved us to, but not for more than one night.
Be wary of the $3.50 charge to book online. They collect when you check in. Don't go to site H34, its a swamp after a rain, and long term campers in squalor all around. Dark, dingy. Request a full hookup site for better site, even if you don't need it. - Maltaman

We are full timer's pulling a 40 ft 5th wheel. We were only there for a couple of nights. This is definitely a campground for the whole family. At first sight it looks like it is all seasonal campers but we were directed to the back of the campground and found our spot right away. Plenty of room for truck and camper. Met some nice folks. There is a gate at the front for security purposes which was nice. They also have a very nice restaurant right on sight that we loved. The food was great but they don't serve breakfast. Easy to get into Canton about 15 miles away to see the sights! - Dawwg
