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. We camped at Bellefonte / State College KOA in a Motorhome.

We are not the target market for KOA parks and typically do not like or stay in them. However, while a bit too expensive for us, this is our second favorite KOA in the U.S. Quiet, nice staff, nice sites for large rigs, they agreed to trim some trees for us, nice dog park and pool area. On the negative side, the roads are dusty, I saw a couple of lose dogs several times and a large group was partying until 2 a.m. and were very noisy. Onsite staff should have stopped it, as many other campers were bothered by it. Would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Bellefonte / State College KOA in a Motorhome.

First time here and it seemed to be just fine. The only thing is the sites are slanted uphill and was hard to level. Everyone was very nice. We camped at Bellefonte / State College KOA in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects KOA discount and weeknight rate. Nice quiet campground. We were in site #3. Sites are level gravel, but very close together. So much so that there was not much room for our tow vehicle. Back in and pull through available. Access roads are gravel, as well. Friendly staff, nice store, well kept pool. Wi-Fi strong. Bathrooms clean and up to date. Only 2 miles from the Interstate and seems to be a popular over night stop for those passing through the area. We would return. We camped at Bellefonte / State College KOA in a Tent Trailer.

Very nice campground with a very nice pool. Most sites are arranged along 5 rows and "tiered" above one an other. A little close together and the water hookups are on the opposite side of the electric and sewer which was bizarre. Price reflects KOA member discount.

We stayed here July 4th for 5 days. Very clean, very quiet park. Each site has a table and fire ring. We were given site 29 first and there was no way we could use this site, uphill site which made it hard to get level. The picnic table was next to the sewage hole of the next site, yuck! We notice several like that. They were very accommodating and we found 64 to be much better. If you decide to stay here, look at where the hook ups are located too. Some are on the correct side and some are not. Luckily we have extra water, elec and cable so it wasn't an issue with us. We are staying here again next month and would recommend it. We have requested certain site #. We camped at Bellefonte / State College KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park. Some sites are a little small. The restrooms were very clean. The pool, store, and pavilion all were very nice. I would definitely visit this park again We camped at Bellefonte / State College KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Friendly campground with super owners and staff. It is a beautiful area and other campers are always nice as well. We have been coming for years and as long as we continue to live, will keep coming. We camped at Bellefonte / State College KOA in a Motorhome.

We ordinarily avoid KOA. Most of them weren't built for big-rigs, but this one looked good on paper and was in the right location. It was very nice: excellent front desk guy; nice sites; some open, some shaded (our satellite dishes worked); clean and well-kept grounds. This campground caters to all sizes and types of RVs as well as tents and Kamper Kabins. We'd stay here again, even though it was a little pricey. But that's the other reason we avoid KOA.

Overall this was a very nice campground. We only stayed one night passing through, but it was a little pricey. The site was a pull through and gravel which is nice. It was still early spring, so it was not crowded at all. The sites and bathrooms were very clean, and I saw staff cleaning everywhere I looked. My 5 year old enjoyed the play areas and "exploring" the wooded areas. It was nice, but would have preferred to pay a little less. We camped at Bellefonte / State College KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed for 3 nights in a tent. Only distraction I can really comment on is the noise from I-80, but after the first night you really get used to it. Our campsite T35 was located right across from the restroom/showers, tucked back in the woods. Very quiet. Pool was great. They offer a hay ride every night and a free movie in the pavilion. Lots of activities for the kids. I noticed 2 different play areas, one with swings etc, the other with volleyball net, badminton net, horseshoe pits (2), tether ball, a basketball hoop. On the weekends (Fri through Sun) there is a small cafe located in the pavilion open for dinner and breakfast. The office and general store is well stocked. We enjoyed exploring Penn's Cave, Woodward Cave, Bald eagle state park, downtown Bellefonte and on our way home we even showed Penn State University to our son. Great place to camp. Staff very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Bellefonte / State College KOA in a Tent.

Park is clean and well maintained. Some of the sites are rather close together without much privacy, but all of the campers were well behaved and the campground was quiet at night. The pool was well maintained and the bathrooms were cleaned twice a day. I would be happy to stay here again. We camped at Bellefonte / State College KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We like this campground. The site we had was very nice. It would be nice to see the restrooms upgraded. They are old and dingy. We camped at Bellefonte / State College KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Nice to find this park. The only complaint is the sites are not level. Other then that, it has friendly staff and is a nice park. We camped at Bellefonte / State College KOA in a Motorhome.

Agreed with previous posters about sites. Some of the longer pull-throughs have a steep up-slope to get into them, and it may be tough to find a site in which a longer rig can remain hitched up. All sites are terraced, as the campground is on a hillside. Otherwise, clean and decent CG, with very friendly and helpful owners. Small (narrow) sites typical of many KOAs. Beautiful landscaping and some nice wooded sites at the top of the property. We'd stay again if in the area. We camped at Bellefonte / State College KOA in a Travel Trailer.
