Date of Stay: December, 2010 - $12.00
This is a campground near my home. We actually go there to walk many evenings. We bought a new travel trailer and decided to try it out at this local campground first before taking in on the road. We stayed there in December and got the winter rate. The day we stayed was the day of Mannford's Christmas parade. After the parade, the campground held a chili cook off and had fireworks. This is a nice, peaceful campground located on the shore of Lake Keystone. Most of the sites are shady. They have picnic tables at each spot as well as a grill and fire ring. The roads are paved, and the pads are gravel and level. The people who run the campground are extremely nice and helpful. You can often see herons and ducks fishing along the shore. Occasionally, you can see deer. There is no playground in the camp. The restrooms aren't fancy, but they are clean. They are heated in the winter. There is a railroad near, and you can see the trains going by. The tiny town of Mannford is less than a mile away and has grocery, gas, and fast food like Pizza Hut and Sonic. We camped at Lake Keystone New Mannford Ramp Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Directions: From Hwy 51 in town of Mannford, go north at stoplight for apprx 1 mile to New Mannford Ramp sign, turn east at sign and follow road into campground. This used to be a COE park but is now leased to the City of Mannford. It is a small campground that is beautifully maintained by folks who live on the premises year round. Big rig friendly. They accept the COE card so our cost for camping with electric was a reduced $10.00 per night (rather than $18.00). During the winter months, there is no limit on amount of days you can stay at the campground. They will even wrap the closest water faucet to you so you can use it to refill your tank. They have a dump station. The only reason I've given this park a "8" is that there is no playground for kids. If you are wanting a playground and marina, go down the road to the Lake Keystone State Park. But if you are looking for a quiet retreat, this is the place! Even with the trees, there are lots of open spaces where satellite TV will work just fine. AT&T Air Card worked great and AT&T cell coverage was excellent. Favorite sites are #9, 12, 13 and 16. We camped at Lake Keystone New Mannford Ramp Campground in a Motorhome.
