I gave a 9 rating and would have made it a 10 but for one thing: the WIFI. It was useless most of the 2 days we were at the park. We have a Verizon hotspot but those gigabytes go fast. With better WIFI, this would be a nice place to spend a few days. RV parks don't seem to understand how important WIFI is. We don't use any of rv park facilities like swimming pool or restrooms/showers and would gladly trade them for good WIFI.

Other than that, its a very nice park with spacious sites and nice landscaping. It was very hot or I'd have taken a long walk with the dog. Very nice management. Location is very good, only about a mile from Rte 80 and easy roads to get to the camp. Everything but the WIFI worked well. We camped at Gram and Pap's Fort Bellefonte Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Gram and Pap's Fort Bellefonte Campground in a Motorhome.

About 10 minutes from Bellefonte. Don't go the Governors Pub to eat. The food is not good, fries are reheated, yucky. The park by the river is pretty, and has lots of ducks to feed.

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. We camped at Gram and Pap's Fort Bellefonte Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Gram and Pap's Fort Bellefonte Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Bald Eagle State Park is nearby.

Bellefonte is a very pretty town with many Victorian homes and buildings. Also home of the American Philatelic Society and a large, pleasant city park. Penn State is 10 minutes away.

Power was good. Water pressure was good. The Wi-Fi was rather poor at our site. Site was big enough for our trailer, however the truck would not have fit. Thankfully the park person allowed to park it in the next vacant site. That was very nice. Unfortunately I reduced the rating due to the very poor location of the sewer dump, very narrow path/road and you really can only dump from one way. This just wouldn't work for me so I had to find another dump site at a Flying J. We camped at Gram and Pap's Fort Bellefonte Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is our favorite campground in the area and we have stayed at this park many times, this trip for 12 nights. Staff has always been most friendly and helpful and throughout the years, many changes have been made to upgrade the grounds and facilities. More attention should be given to the big rig sites to make them more level. We almost always have to work a bit harder here to find the most level spot of the pull-through. On this last visit, our chief complaint was the Wi-Fi. It would work for awhile, then go off. Most often it was off and calls to or stopping by the office became tiresome. We use our laptop for business and need dependable Wi-Fi. This is our chief complaint overall and we will definitely make a return visit. Just love the view of the mountains and rolling meadow here.

We spent a single night in a pull-thru, heading west. Our site was fairly level, with full hookups. Cable TV worked well, and the view of the Pennsylvania mountains from our site was very pretty. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We felt very welcome. Nice park. We recommend it. We camped at Gram and Pap's Fort Bellefonte Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy on and off I-80 so great for anover night. Our rate reflects a Passport America discount. The road up to our site was a little steep but not a problem. Our site (66) is great--almost level side to side. Some of the pull-throughs are not very level front to back. No noise from the highway. The owners were very nice. We would absolutely stay here again. Would recommend reservations if during Penn State football season We camped at Gram and Pap's Fort Bellefonte Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Passport America Rate $24. Is now called “Fort Bellefonte campground (CG)”, not “Gram and Pap’s Fort Bellefonte CG”. Convenient on/off I-80. Typical Pocono Mountain campground – old, terraced sites on side of hill, gravel roads & sites, many trees. But thankfully for us, a couple of sites are open enough to get satellite from our roof antenna. Good 50 amp electric. Overnighter sites could use some leveling. Restrooms old and dark, office old, dark, and damp smelling. Owners friendly and accommodating. Trash way off in far corner was not convenient. Entrance trees need to be cut back for larger rigs. Quiet. Nice view out over field. Would come back. We camped at Gram and Pap's Fort Bellefonte Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground could use some sprucing up. Sites unlevel and in need of some landscaping. Areas landscaped were full of weeds. Felt rushed when checking in. Trash only at exit but far off the driveway. Fire ring was right next to a singed bush and too close to the RV. We camped at Gram and Pap's Fort Bellefonte Campground in a Motorhome.

While we stayed here, several improvements were being made including installation of a pool. Biggest complaint is how unlevel the sites are. Picnic table and fire pit are on a slope. Otherwise, its a quiet, clean place to stay. Not many activities on weekend. We camped at Gram and Pap's Fort Bellefonte Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Campground is set on a terraced hillside. Roads are gravel and a bit steep in places. Sites were also gravel and were level side-to-side but dipped a bit front to back. We had a long-pull through with 50 amps and were able get satellite. Wi-Fi was okay, but a bit slow. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. About half the sites had seasonals. We came mid-fall and leaves had not been raked in a while, but otherwise the campground was clean and relatively neat. Our rate reflects an Escapees discount and would normally be $48. We stayed one night and would stay again if we were in the area. We camped at Gram and Pap's Fort Bellefonte Campground in a Motorhome.

This park has nice pull throughs. Most only 30 AMP but adequate for AC. It was labor day and the 1st Penn State game, so it was packed. Only 1 small bathroom to accommodate that many people is inadequate. They did bring porta-pottys in for the football season, but showers were never clean just because of the volume of people using them. We would stay here again, just not during Penn State football games although it was a lot of fun. We camped at Gram and Pap's Fort Bellefonte Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice, level sites and great at check-in. Very nice landscaping. Again, the fire-pits were not cleaned out between campers. For some reason, there were four dump trucks that parked in the back of the campground (where we were) and they ran them into the campground at odd hours. Probably from some construction site in the area. We would stay there again. We camped at Gram and Pap's Fort Bellefonte Campground in a Motorhome.
