2 Parks near Bellefonte, Pennsylvania

We prefer KOA Kampgrounds for overnights, and are KOA card holders. This particular KOA is entirely on a steep hill. The spacing between sites is extremely close. In fact, on our door side, where there is a concrete slab with a bench at the rear of the site, our neighbor's sewer hose ran to their connection in the middle of our lounging area. Their water hose completely crossed our site to the shared spigot. To our "street" side, the vacant spot next to us was in constant use by campers going down to the pool or office, night and day, loud conversations and yelling kids. In fact, most of the spots in the first row have "trails" behind them leading below. I would not recommend camping in either sites 9 or 11 because of the unofficial "path" to the pool. And site 10 is the "path" itself. The park seemed to be dominated by families with kids at Penn State, and may well be its primary use. There is no other attraction to Bellefonte, and really no reason to visit that I can see. I would have preferred a no-name, unkempt and deserted park to being in this park overnight. - Pdx discovery

When I made the reservation I reserved a Big Rig pull through site. The site we were assigned was terrible! There was an upslope to enter, I had to get out 3 times to ensure I didn't rip my Oasis exhaust off amidships! A trailer attempted to enter the site next to and was dragging so bad he left! The next morning I had to drop the toad to maneuver out on a one way street the wrong direction! To be fair they do have "some" nice sites... but if you are assigned to 2nd street with a Big Rig you're in trouble! - Stealth01

I will preface this by stating that we are KOA Kamp Kard holders and typically look for KOA Kampgrounds if available for short stays or layovers. This is a good place for an overnight layover. The spots are very tight, even by KOA standards. Also they may advertise a certain length, but a good portion of the total length is a pretty steep incline to a short level patch. Any unit of medium to considerable length needed an insane number of blocking materials to get under the leveling jacks to get level. The bathrooms are some of the best we have seen in a KOA. Unfortunately it takes forever to get lukewarm water and then it is only a misting, not a stream of water. - Godsey97

This could be one of the best campgrounds around PA. It's big, has nice treed areas to camp, fire rings, lots of places to walk, pet friendly ,
They are a little too laid back for our liking, when we arrived, the office was closed( early afternoon) a sign on the door said. Call this number, we did.. 4 times, goes to voice mail.. After driving around and walking around looking for someone to check us in, we decided to just pick a site and get settled. We did have a reservation for a one week stay. 2 hours later a lady shows up at our door and we eventually got checked in.
If you have trouble walking, do not stay here, the rv sites are on hilled terraces; very pretty, but hard to walk up and down the hills to the office.
The camp ground offers free mini golf and a water splash area, neither in good shape.
They keep horses ( no riding), rabbits, and a play ground. But, it all needs some tender love and lots of care; the owners are really trying to get it all together, and with time and a lot of work they might do it.
They have been trying to get a "store" up and running for the past three years, but there is still no store.
Overall, we would stay at Gram and Paps Fort Bellemonte again. The people are very nice. - Audrey Dunton

Called for reservations and asked for a level pull thru long enough to hold our 45' motorhome. Was told they would put us in site 69 that will be fine--nice and level and would not require us to unhook our car. When we got there we got there given sight 65 which was plenty long enough but had a severe slope toward the front. Had to use 4" of blocks to get level and had to unhook the car to do that. Water connection was on the wrong side of the site and the electric box had a big posting that said to not shut off the circuit breaker. Not what we expected for the price. - DaDoSA

Park has a variety of sites: 30 amp or 50 amp, shaded or open, full hookups, or water and electric only. Some access is narrow; short, steep sections of gravel drive. Plenty of room for our large 5th wheel in drive-through site #69. A good family destination with lots of activities for children. Some long term residents scattered around. Expensive if no kids to entertain; the 50% Escapees discount makes it reasonable (not sure why they dropped Passport America). We would stay here again as SKPs. - Rod n Mary
