With a KOA one usually knows what to expect...clean facilitates, nice laundry and well stocked store. Friendly service. We were not disappointed. Wifi was excellent and cable TV was not perfect but very acceptable. The sites were level and not too muddy even thought the area has had heavy rain and flooding. We camped at Bellefonte / State College KOA in a Motorhome.

Easy access to the park. Once inside a big rig will have some minor difficulties. Park was pricey. For the price you got great bathhouses and some pretty nice kid areas. The park is expanding in 2019 so it could become even better than it is now. We only stayed one night. We camped at Bellefonte / State College KOA in a Motorhome.

I was disappointed in this KOA! I read the reviews and based on that I made our overnight reservation. Pulling in the pool and splash area look nice (and were nice as my daughter and I used them) and the check in process and store were decent. Getting to my site was another story. In 20 years of RV'ing i've never needed 4WD to get into a pull through. It looked like I was 4 wheeling after I got in. I've 4 wheeled before and never got that muddy. Site was gravel and dirt/mud. Site rose 5 feet over a 15ft distance. I had to angle my truck to keep it hooked up for the night. Water and electric Hookups were very far back and only 30A for a pull through?! Sewer however was OK. Cable was decent, good picture and channels. I would recommend finding another place to stay if traveling though! We camped at Bellefonte / State College KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is a beautiful park with grass lawns everywhere. The property rises gently up a slope. The staff was friendly and helpful. The swimming pool looked very nice but we did not use it. We stayed in a full hookup pull through site (#18) that was level in the front 2/3's of the site, but sloped off quite a bit at the back 1/3. We exited onto 2nd street, which was bit higher than the site, so we had to make sure our air suspension was fully inflated as we were concerned the front end of the rig would drag. We were told this site was satellite friendly, but we were not able to lock onto all of the Dish satellites because of a tree in the way. WiFi and water pressure was average. Roads were easily navigable. Highway 26 from I-80 to the campground is a bit narrow. We camped at Bellefonte / State College KOA in a Motorhome.

We had a back in site in a shaded area of the park. Sites were spaced nicely. There was plenty to do even with spotty rain and chilly temperatures. We enjoyed the jumping pillow, gem and fossil mining which was an additional cost, and fishing. Our two dogs enjoyed the grassy dog park which was fenced and gated. We camped at Bellefonte / State College KOA in a Motorhome.

Our site was nice and fairly secluded, however, a number of sites near the bottom of the hill looked quite cramped. We were only staying one night as we were passing through however the kids thoroughly enjoyed the scavenger hunt and the pancake breakfast. They also have a very nice camp kitchen set up for tent campers with sinks and grills under a shelter. There showers at the top of the hill are very new and all are completely private and clean. It was a bit expensive when traveling with 7 (~$68 for one night) but can tell the owners take pride in their campground. We camped at Bellefonte / State College KOA in a Tent Trailer.

Good place for a quick overnight stop, close to I-80 but not a lot of road noise. Campground seemed very well kept and the staff was friendly. Price was a little high, but there are limited options on that stretch of highway. We camped at Bellefonte / State College KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Easy access to park, as long as you follow the directions on their website (GPS will lead you the wrong way). Helpful staff, sites were very good with plenty of room, great water pressure, and lots of activities for children. We stayed one night, but would definitely stay again. We camped at Bellefonte / State College KOA in a Motorhome.

Only stayed for 1 night on the way north but have stayed here on other occasions for longer periods. It appears that the owners are upgrading some sites with pads and patios. We would stay here again. We camped at Bellefonte / State College KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a nice KOA. Some of them can be really bad. Our site was level enough. Hook ups were well placed. There was cable & WiFi. We booked online but called directly to the campground to ask for a satellite friendly site. We asked again when we got there. We were not able to get satellite from our site. It looked like there were sites that were satellite friendly but we weren't given one. The water pressure was very low. We had to fill our tank & run off of that. We would stay here again now that we know which sites to ask for to fit our needs. We camped at Bellefonte / State College KOA in a Motorhome.

Some nice features. The bathrooms are very nice. There is a bathhouse at each end of the campground, the upper one looks new, and the lower one is older but very nice. No issues with hot water, and it was very clean. If think making a same day reservation could be difficult, as the office is open a couple hours in the morning and a couple hours in the evening and do not answer the phone during any other time of day. We have a fairly small trailer, at 20 feet. We had no issues with our site which are set up on almost terraced roads. I did see some larger RVs sticking out into the road though as some sites are not as deep as others. The higher priced sites with fire pits and patios or the pull-though sites have more space, while the back-in sites are more like parking spaces. Some of the tent sites were very nice, grassy and private, and some of the smaller sites in the back of the campground also looked very treed and private. They have a nice looking pool although it had already closed for the season, a small dog park, and volley ball, and play grounds. I would defintely stay again but be very careful about site choice. We camped at Bellefonte / State College KOA in a Travel Trailer.

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

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