Ugh! What a disaster. Checked in after having made a reservation using my Good Sam Discount. The shower shall I used in the Men's bath house didn't drain. Wound up standing in 4 inches of water. While we were there, 4 police cars raced into camp. Don't know why. We stayed in our camper. The sites have some kind of black gravel that you'll track into your unit. Numerous potholes throughout the dirt roads to the sites. When we went to the office in the morning to tell them we were leaving (* AM on a Sunday), the office was closed, but a sign on the wall said: "Overnight sites, $30". Yet we were charged $36. While they offer cable TV, we needed a barrel connector to hook up. Fortunately, I had one. The 30 amp electric was terrible! 112 volts without any electric appliance in operation. I had to use an auto-formr to be able to run the air conditioner. Find another place to camp! - thetravelkids

This park has a large number of seasonal and a few year round residents. Park is neat and well maintained. They have about 10 sites for short term campers. They have a well maintained pool that seems to be in constant use by mothers and kids. We're here for a month while visiting family in the area and regularly stay here each year. It's quiet and OK for our needs. It has a very sharp uphill blind corner on the approach to the entrance that can be exciting if you happen to meet another rig going the opposite way. We got invaded this stay by small ants. - SuperRep

I stayed for two months. Internet worked sporadically. Over Memorial Day weekend the park was like a frat party. Loud music late, rude campers. management was not receptive to complaints. - gone to the dogs

This is a diamond in the rough. Park is undergoing renovations. Currently has several seasonal campers but owner states they want to attract more vacationers. Roads are unpaved and they are very steep - especially right where you have to park to check-in. They are planning to add a parking area on more level ground. Sites are gravel and surrounded by trees. Office is stocked with snacks a common camping items. Nice looking pool but fall weather prevented us from trying it out. Creek and little lake on property. Cable TV with about 70 stations. It will be interesting to come back in about 2 years and see the improvements. - akeller156

I've camped here several times in a motorhome and tent. The sites are mostly seasonal with water electric and cable hookups. No site dumps but they do offer to clean out your tanks for a small fee - $12.00. There is also a dump station. You can also rent a trailer, park model, and cabins. The cabins are small but they are lake front and nice. The campground, located at the base of the Appalachian trail, is clean with a picturesque lake for fishing, a clean pool with a game room, volleyball, and a pavilion for weekends bands, DJ, and even Sunday church services. The baths and showers are decent but can get a bit overwhelmed on holiday weekends. The rental hook up sites range in size from small to very large and spacious. For me, the true gem of this place are the primitive wooded sites. All densely forested and large. About half are trailer and motorhome accessible. The rest are tent or popup only. They all offer a true boondocking experience. The staff is nice and accommodating. There are also many activities available. - DumpStation

We were there to spend time with family from Virginia, New Jersey and Pennsylvania and were there for 7 days. The campground was quiet during the week which was very nice. The campground staff were friendly and helpful. - SWMich-Campers

This is my second season at Mt Vista. I came in May this year and left in October. I love this park. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Even on busiest weekends the nights are quiet. My site was big enough and had bushes on either side so my views were of trees not another camper. Wi-Fi always good.Water pressure excellent. - gone to the dogs

We stayed here in August for a long weekend. Staff was awesome due to my hubs being in an accident. They were very accommodating in helping me find my way around to purchase supplies. Sites are large and it is very quiet at night. - Aidens Nannie

We went to this campground for a TOUR before becoming a seasonal ($2800.00 asking way to much $ for what it is) WOW! this place is run down. Bath houses dirty and falling apart. Lots of old and/or abandoned RV's. Grass area tall and over grown. Game room building/floor has a bad slant. playground was dated. Didn't bother looking at the pool. This is a large property and COULD be a amazing place if it was brought up to date and the grounds were taken care of. - Momszoo1

I would NOT recommend this place for anyone camping with families. Broken down trailers litter the landscape. Roads are in a poor state of repair. Electric 30 amp service was not available when checked in & electric lines were run above ground from site to site just to hook us up. Maintenance man ran over sewer caps when mowing grass so sewer connections were NOT capped. They added a new elbow after a complaint, but didn't secure it to pipe. So gray/black water leaked onto ground where the above ground 30 amp electric lines were! I told the staff about it but they just shrugged & said 'OK'. Never fixed it. When I asked why wasn't any of this done BEFORE we arrived, they said "Memorial day just kinda snuck up on us this year". Really??? Second the staff. Rules are non-existent at this campground. Everyone speeds from cars to golf carts & even though one seasonal put up a sign to remind everyone of the speed limit, no one cared & the seasonals are the worst offenders. Dogs friendly is one thing but to allow campers' dogs to run free is just a hazard. Yes, everyone thinks their dog is OK, but incidents happen. And just from a liability standpoint, the leash rule should be enforced. Oh, & people who don't leash their dogs, also don't pick up their poop either. Drinking & camping has always gone together, but at family campgrounds, people drink only at their campsites. This place, drinking & driving golf carts is a sport. Now the kicker, there is a 'weed' dealer living as a seasonal on top of the hill. He advertises right at his campsite with his web address posted on his car. Not only do seasonals drive to his site & buy, but outside customers also come into campground. This is well known to the staff & all seasonals. Overall, if you are looking to party & don't care about living conditions then this is for you. But if you family camp with children, this is NOT the place. Someone will get hurt here. - easycamper

Not a "family" campground. The bathhouse was horrendous, filthy the whole weekend we were there. The showers were barely operational. Most bathroom stalls were out of order and only two showers "worked". Water sprayed out of the spicket in all directions. Don't claim to have amenities when it's obvious you do nothing to maintain them. There were no "quiet" hours. Music and partying lasted well after midnight. There were also folks openly drunk in public places and drug use was obvious by some campers. Nothing I wanted my children around. If you have young children, hope they can sleep through anything if you want any type of rest in a tent. Broken down, dilapidated trailers were everywhere. Scenic views did not exist and it was far from being camping where you hope to be surrounded by nature views and sounds. This was by far the worst campground we've stayed at in our many years of camping. Also if you are in a tent, beware, my husband is covered in some type of rash from the "fauna" surrounding our tent site. Beware of the good reviews. It's obvious these are from their "seasonal" campers....aka folks in RVs. These folks do not use the bathroom facilities or tent sites, so they give a false impression on the state of the campground.
DON'T BE FOOLED!!!! This is not a family campground, but if you wish to party this is your spot, because management won't do anything to stop you! - Scenic Route Camper

Campground with a lot of private wooded lots - electric and water only. We have a 34 foot motorhome, and didn't have a problem, but it may be for the bigger rigs. You must use the directions on the website - the GPS will lead you on a VERY hilly road that will be a problem with your camper. Very friendly and helpful staff. It's deceiving but this is a big place. It has a small pond that you can go swimming, canoeing and paddleboating. The one strange thing is that this is bear country, but yet they have regular trash cans at each site. They are not bear proof. We didn't see the trash cans knocked over, but there are many reviews to the contrary. They should consider the safety of their guests. We did see a bear ambling across the woods when we first got there, but that was it. The campground borders on the Lakota Wolf Preserve - a wonderful place to visit while there. Will definitely be back. - Kevie

A very nice campground, beautifully set up. Quiet and fairly spread out. The owner was very friendly. - Laura Oostdyk

We stayed here before about five years ago and loved it. We have a larger fifth wheel now and the weather was hotter, so we found the 30 amp service to be completely inadequate. Also the sites were made for much smaller campers so we had very few options. When we told the management that we could not stay because of the voltage problems, they could not have been nicer and refunded our money immediately. - mary mcmoo

Non-existent signage. Not clear how to access the park's gate. Very tight, gravel interior roads. The place is clean and well landscaped but the sites are very tight to get in and out of. The laundry was clean but very expensive. The staff was cordial and helpful. The majority of the units in the park are either permanent or long stay. The place is in an unusual location. As your GPS takes you there, you wonder whether you are going to get into a place you cannot get out of. The roads in the area are steep, narrow, crooked and very rough. - Ras2

The sites are wooded and shaded with ample room. There is limited 50 amp service available. I was there with a 40' fifth wheel for only one night and made do with 30 amp and only one A/C unit. The staff were extremely helpful and courteous. I left a fresh water y-valve and pressure reducer on the spigot when I left. They were kind enough to notify me by email, then mail the valve to my home. That level of service was beyond my expectations. - Charles Thrasher

This campground is over priced for the quality of the park. I always inform the campground when I make a reservation about the length of my unit and if I plan to unhook the tow vehicle. We did not unhook the tow vehicle since were only staying overnight but the pull trough site was too short for the Motorhome and tow vehicle. Fortunately the campground was not busy so I was able to let the vehicle hang over a little into the road. The roads are gravel and dirt and are bumpy with very sharp turns. We had to swing off the road to avoid scraping on a large painted rock sticking out into the road on a curve. Our site was not level and required several blocks to get the motorhome even close to level. The sewer pipe was about 1 foot higher than the ground so it was difficult to drain the tanks well. We could hear road noise while sitting outside at night. The WIFI was unusable but the cable worked OK. The restrooms and showers were reasonably clean. Over all the campground is clean, and shady. I did not see any messy campsites or trash laying around. For the price I expected a better quality campground so I do not think I will choose this campground on my next trip through the area. - Freelander1

We were a little concerned when we pulled in here for the first time, two cluttered seasonal sites and powerlines greeted of us, however, we were very impressed with this KOA overall. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, all the sites were level and well-maintained, and there was a lot for the family to do including a live concert Saturday. We've already booked again for next year. - GoldenGirl

The office was perpetually busy, so it was difficult to ask for help. However, I did ask about good places to hike and was advised to get a brochure somewhere because she wasn't sure. Fortunately, there are lots of online resources, but the staff isn't very helpful in that area. There isn't much shade near the RV sites. - Brian Jay Gould

The campground was great. My family love it. The only thing I can say is the guest cost could be a little less. Instead of $10 per person regardless of age. I feel say 16 and under should be $5 and adults to 65 should be $7 over $65 back to $5. We had 5 family members come visit us and the thought of paying $10 for my mom who is 66 for her to basically sit with us eat with us and only use the campgrounds restroom. I feel $10 is a little steep. Other than that cost I feel this is a wonderful KOA and would stay there again just wouldn't have guests or visitors while there.
The staff on the golf carts were driving around at top speeds,moving very fast through the campground even though the campground has a 5 MPH speed limit, with the little green guys that say slow. Too fast if they want the campers to obey the 5 MPH then so should they.. - EJB76

It was very clean the restrooms and showers. The water pressure was poor in our rv but in the restroom it was better. Our site was not as level as our neighbors took some doing to get it level enough so the bathroom door stayed closed. The pond was small but we all enjoyed catching fish. I will stay here again. - mommabee

Many seasonals, but they were nice and well maintained. Site was level. Much of the campground is wooded. Pull thru sites in an open grassy area. Staff was nice. Would stay again. - DYK 640

Very nice camp ground. $49 a night but with PA discount only $24.50. Nice hosts, maintained very well, free cable and Wifi. Water pressures a little low but manageable. They had pull through 'companion' sites so if you're traveling with friends they can park in the opposite direction next to you and share tables and space for visiting and cooking out. They also had cabins for rent. Roads were a little winding to get here but we made it just fine with a 40' Class A with a toad. Community house had great laundry facilities, gym, very clean bathrooms and showers, indoor and outdoor pools. We'd definitely recommend this CG! - Cfvalk

This was our fifth stay here, and the most pleasant. Most of the office staff are pleasant and helpful. The same is true of the maintenance crew. This year we were blessed with cooler weather, which makes for a much nicer experience when you are limited to 30 A. electric service. As mentioned in last year's review, a few 50 A. sites for us bigger rigs would be a nice upgrade. Our site was quite level, even though there was a lot of muddy ground due to quite a bit of rain. It wasn't a big problem. but we had to remove our shoes after walking outside. We were parked under some big, old walnut trees, which provided lots of shade. We got used to the occasional walnut bouncing off our roof. The only real negative experience was an RV with three couples who got very drunk and were disruptive until at least 3 AM. When the management heard about this, the drunken idiots were told to leave when they tried to book an extra day here. To me, it shows that the management is serious about civilized behavior in this campground. TV cable is limited to 20 channels, but that was more than enough. WI-FI is located up near the office but, with my booster, I could usually access it during weekdays. The weekends are much busier, and with the influx of kids I had to use my mobile hotspot. It is costlier this year to have visitors -- $10 each as a "facilities fee," but I would guess this is because some campers have abused using the facilities, which mostly consist of the pool and the miniature golf course, which has actually been upgraded since last season. In closing, there are not that many decent campgrounds in the area, and this one has the nicest scenery, location, service, and the lowest fees, at least for longer stays like ours. - dhaney1944

On the lower camp sites you hardly hear the traffic on 46. Most of the upper sites are park model trailers, cabins and campers who haven't been on the road in years. Nice quiet campground except if they are mowing lawn or pumping out. If your kids will be playing basketball, volleyball or on the playground Oak 6 might be a perfect site, you could watch them from your picnic table. The heated pool looked good but it was too wet and cool while we were there so we never got to try it. - LatitudeAdjustment

This has been our most pleasant stay at this campground. We used to have to buy $1 tokens to get back into he campground after the office closed. Now you can get an electronic pass with just a refundable $25 deposit. Big improvement !
I also have seen improvement in the friendliness of the office staff. They are much more pleasant than they used to be. I guess all those negative comments were finally listened to.
As noticed in previous reviews, there is no on-site sewer, but they do come and pump out your tanks on Mondays and Fridays.
This is the first time we have camped here in a bigger Class A, and we could only run one AC at a time because they only have 30 Amp. Wiring at least some sites with 50A would be a really nice thing for those of us with bigger rigs. It didn't help that we stayed here during record-breaking heat !
DRFCG is really two different campgrounds. From Sunday night until Friday afternoon, it is pretty quiet here with a lot of empty site. The weekends are rowdy, with a lot of tent campers, but security is pretty much on the ball and quiets down those who get too rowdy.
WI-FI is pretty much restricted to the public buildings at the top of the hill. Our first two weeks here I was able to access it fairly well with my WI-FI booster, but then the signal strength seemed to fade.
Cable (via DISH Network) TV is very limited, less than 20 channels with only SD and kind of weird oversized picture.
All in all, this campground has the best rates in this area ($700 per month), and we will, no doubt, be back next summer for a month or so. - dhaney1944
