Everything about average. Sites were decent, seasonal campers were friendly. Roads were drivable. Staff was able to answer questions when needed - NE Ohio Camper

Very quiet park. Very friendly staff. Wide range of sites available: from open area pull-throughs to shady seasonal sites. There is a fairly large number of seasonal campers, most units and sites appear to be very well maintained. Good TV signal via antenna and excellent Verizon cellular signal. Would definitely stay here again. - rjohnso3a

On PA-51, about 6 miles from the Ohio border. Turn east/south at the blinking yellow light onto OH-168, Salem Church Road then about .8 mile, turn right on Hodgson Road, then .8 mile and left into the CG.
Weekly rate $170; monthly $380. No credit/debit cards accepted; cash or check only. All electric is metered, even for daily visits ($0.11/kwh). One employee who is very friendly and helpful. Municipal access roads are sufficiently wide, maintained, asphalt but lots of ups-and-downs. Watch for one low-hanging tree on Hodgson Road. Internal roads are gravel, somewhat narrow with no overhead obstacles.
A variety of sites which are grass/gravel with mowed lawns and occasional tall trees. A few sites have patios; most have picnic tables. All sites are FHU-20/30/50, level with pedestal at the road end of the sites. Sufficient clear sky for satellite antennas. No cable TV. Fires permitted in fire rings. Well water has low, but adequate pressure and okay taste. No office store. No propane sales. Restrooms/showers are old but clean with newer fixtures but minimal privacy (score "B-"). No laundry.
Spacious, grass playground. Very nice, unheated, salt water pool. No spa. Free Wi-Fi but internet access is weak and unreliable. Verizon coverage is dismal at "½ bar." CG is in the country and is very quiet. No recycling bins. - StephenK

We stayed for 4 days visiting relatives in the area. The campground was nice and neat. We got a shaded, pull-in site. Many of the RVs seemed as if they were seasonals and were empty. Check in was fine and the campground was easy to find and access. They only accept cash or checks, so happy we remembered the checkbook. There was a nice playground; the kids enjoyed that quite a bit. The owner lady knocked on our RV to remind us that the pool was open, but we were busy with relatives. It was nice she thought about the kids. At checkout (we were trying to leave at 9am), no one was in the office or adjacent trailer so had to call the owner's phone. Wanted someone to come read the electricity meter, but could not get a hold of anyone. Finally, at departure time, as we were pulling out, we ran into one of the attendants and he read the meter. There was no delay afterall, but didn't like that I couldn't find anyone initially. (Only $9 for 4 days for electricity.) Overall, good experience & would stay here again when visiting family in Beaver.
Initially, I was concerned about the other negative reviews and questioned booking here, but turned out fine and it was convenient. There were RULES posted rather excessively (no rugs or anything on grass, etc) around the campground, but we experienced no issues or tongue-lashings; think they just take pride in their campground. - Camping with kiddos

We stayed here with a travel trailer and a tent. They are very unorganized and kept moving us to different sites. They don't want anything on their grass. The owners are not friendly and yelled when our truck went in the grass to make the turn into our spot. They have a swing on the playground that is apparently for handicapped kids although there is nothing indicating that. I was swinging my daughter in it and the owner came over and told me to get her out because he paid too much money for her to ruin it. They charge you extra for your electric usage on top of your nightly fee. There are no activities except bingo and there is one bath house at the front of the park. I would not camp there again. - beaglefamily24

We stayed one night on our way to NY. The grounds were neat and clean. The eight pull-through sites did not have sewer. There were bees inside the electric box when we hooked up. The 30 amp electric tripped when we ran the microwave and coffee pot in the morning. There were some low hanging branches on one side of the road going out. We would not stay here again. - D&R

Traveling on the I-80 we needed an overnight spot and this was perfect. Beautifully kept large grassy park with a lake and facilities to large gatherings, spots for long-term visitors, and a large grassy field for pull through overnighters like us. Perfect. Lots of elbow room and a friendly staff. The owners are working to improve the park and decided to not sell it to developers and keep it as a park. What a good thing. The WiFi doesn't work on site but our Verizon phone worked good and satellite TV on the roof came through so we were happy. We were charged $25 but asked that if we used our AC to come back to the office and pay another $5. That was fair. We will certainly stay here again for a night or two if traveling though the area. - Bearpaw

They only have 39 sites with full hookups. They were rented to extended stay folks and none of them seemed to be there. This is a park like atmosphere with activities that would be found at a private lake. The poor rating is based upon the decline to use the dump station, and the worthless bath house facilities. I was told to use the dump station at Flying J truck stop back at the interstate because it was free. The bath house was made from old non stained wood and was black from water stain inside. You pulled on a chain and received cold water out of a pipe without a shower head on it. The floor was bare concrete that had not been cleaned in forever. There was an old locker in the entrance that has an animal nest in the bottom, where some kind of creature had spent the winter. It had not been cleaned in years. If you just want to stop and stay the night with water and electric, using your own self contained bathroom, this would be all right. The grass was mowed and the lake was a nice touch. - rod

Sites are tight, but site 20 was ample for our 42'. Trees toward the back of our site still allowed us to use our satellite. The pool was nice, had one foot deep shallow end up to five foot at its deepest. Quite a few seasonals, well taken care of. Decent playground as well. We also rented the deluxe family cabin, site
79, complaints about the comfort of the beds. A/C could be a little better as well. Overall this campground isn't bad, just tight. - User3025

The spots for overnighters are extremely tight! We had a hard time getting into our site that was not very level front to back so we had to unhook the toad to position the coach. Sites are very muddy in the rain. There is a nice dog park, playground for the kids, and a store with lots of stuff. With our 37' RV we would not stay here again. - Tony Connie and Rusty

Back to back sites. Back in (some pull throughs), some seasonal (very clean), Gated. Site is grass, shaded. Playground, pool, dog park, bath, laundry. Activities on weekends. I felt a little closed in with the back to back site. But, great place would go back and ask for a pull through. - jcpjane

Super friendly staff/owner. The facilities were OK basic showers and restrooms.
This park has a lot of semi permanent residents who don't keep their sites the cleanest. The person who was in my site prior left pieces of lumber, flip flop and bits of trash everywhere.
Given the fact that the owner was super friendly I would stay here again. - ETCTA

We had no problems with tight spaces, our pull through was long and wide. A very nice and friendly campground, will stay here again when in the area. - DRF

We were caught in heavy rain, which slowed us to the point that we could not make it to our planned campground. We called Hubbard and they confirmed they had large, open, level spaces for a 40' motorhome. We arrived after dark and discovered this was a campground we had been to some 10 years earlier in our new 38' MH. We got stuck, the sites were so out of level our jacks would not level us enough to open slides and branches scratched the sides of our new MH. When I recognized the campground we left in a hurry. I wish they had been truthful about the condition of their campground. We spent the night at a nearby Flying J. - we_rv

Nice wooded sites. Great hiking paths along the river. Friendly owner and helpful staff. Very clean restrooms and showers. Quiet place. - Julie B

It's a nice park with long sites. And yes, no one camps in front or behind you but like the other reviewer said, they do camp close to you: that is true. Sites aren't metered anymore unless you're a seasonal camper. We've camped a lot of places and this place was the only campground where we'd been to in the past that charged for electric: must be why they changed that policy. We were here Labor Day weekend 2012 and the park was full. It was a rainy weekend, but even then the only "activity" was Bingo, and I understand each day only 4 people went to the pavilion and played. It wouldn't take much for the campground to purchase a Power Point projector for a couple hundred bucks, a lap top computer, and show movies in the evening down at the pavilion. The pool was open this weekend as was the game room, which yes, is more than most places have. But besides bingo, there were no other activities besides the above mentioned, and the Saturday afternoon fire truck ride around the loop for the kids. Would be nice to announce activities on a PA system and not rely on postings on the Gate House and bathroom doors. Everyone needs a reminder now and then. We noticed that the teenagers they have on staff here, have a rough time keeping up with cleaning the bathrooms. (Most all the staff were teenagers!) I've stayed at a near by state park several times and am a stickler about bathrooms. (Don't we all like clean ones?) But the State Parks employ older people who have cleaned a bathroom or 2 in their lives. I was in using the restroom on the Sunday afternoon of our visit and had to listen to the Manager yell at one of the new kids because the bathroom wasn't cleaned. 1) when guests are present, no employee should be talked to like their idiots, and 2) no employee should be spoken to like their idiots. The Manager knew I was here because I had to walk past her to get to the bathroom. It's a nice place and all, and we've tried to give it a chance a couple of times, but management needs to get it's act together. This weekend wasn't their first weekend of operation, but it sure seemed like it. - MyUpNorth

Beautiful campground in interesting historic setting and surrounding area. However, at least half of the lots are severely sloped - we noted several units with unusually large amounts of blocking to raise the rear. - cmclark

This is definitely an older park made up mostly of seasonal/permanent residents. We had reservations and were told the store wouldn't be open but they gave us a # to call. We got voicemail when we called so it took awhile to get checked in. The roads are narrow but we didn't have any problems getting to our site. There is little chance of getting satellite as it is fully covered with trees. Utilities worked well. The sites slope to the back so our front end was almost on the ground. Also it had evidently rained recently and there was some mud. Sites are gravel/dirt. Verizon and AT&T worked well. The grounds are kept up good. We were here over Labor Day weekend and it was packed with kids. There were about 3 cars at every site, so it was hard getting in and out of the park. They did have activities going on the whole weekend. Like I said, the park is older, but it is ok for a short stay. Residents were cordial. Other reviews mentioned the dragstrip...they had races going, but it wasn't that bad. Inside, we never heard them.+0\ - jacknpeg
Oct 2011 - $24.00
Rate is for 30 amp FHU back-in site. Roads are gravel, sites gravel or grass, in a heavy woods, with escort to site. No satellite reception, though Verizon cell and 3G were excellent. Campground is almost all seasonal campers. This is not a four star resort by any means, but it was more than adequate to serve as a home base while visiting in the area. The drag strip, Quaker City Raceway, that an earlier review commented on was here some 50 years ago when I lived in the area as a teenager, so it isn't likely going away anytime soon. We stayed during a time of heavy rains and they parked us on an older site with well packed gravel. The RV next to us sunk into the mud through the thin layer of new gravel on their site. We could stay here again if in the area, as long as we could get the same site. - Big Moose

We arrived on a Friday for a two night stay. After checking in a man on a golf cart escorted us to our site. He help me back in and warned about the noise from the drag strip that was a mile away. The noise from the cars and motorcycles was annoying. It went on until after midnight. Saturday we were out and came back in the early afternoon. That noise from the drag strip went on all day until after midnight again. This is not the fault of the campground. This has driven a lot of seasonal campers away. The locals would like to shut the racetrack down. We asked for an activity sheet but they were out of them. They had a hay ride, corn roast and pot luck diner that we did not know about. They also had fireworks. This is an older campground and the buildings show it. The restrooms and showers need to be remodeled. The lake is nice for fishing or a small boat. We did not see anyone swimming even though they have an area roped off for swimming. - psrujak

This is a very nice campground. Everything is well kept and clean. Nice pool and playground. Our site was fairly level, adequately spaced and not hard to get into. We had an escort, Joe, who took us to our site and assisted with maneuvering in. He was friendly and knowledgeable. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. They even deliver ice and firewood to your site for a fair price. They do their best to make you feel welcome and appreciated.
The only down side to our site was a large tree with roots that extended into our door area. Since there was a dry spell the roads were very dusty. Both were mild irritations not problems.
The transient and seasonal areas are separate. We found the seasonal people to be quite friendly. All of their sites are tidy and kept to look like they are part of a campground, not a trailer park.
We would camp here again without hesitation. Our week there was very pleasant.
We camped here in a travel trailer. - Stephen20

The owners could not have been nicer. When we checked in the owner took us to our spot and helped us back in. They have a nice playground and pool. The restrooms were very clean. I would definitely camp there again. - beaglefamily24
Jun 2013 - $54.00
This park is very clean, quite, and well maintained. The pool was nice. They have a great catch and release pond that yielded some 3+ pound large mouths. The sites are well spaced and relatively level and the owners are super nice. I would have rated higher, but they charge an extra $8 per kid over two. This is a little steep for the area and there were limited (hayride) organized activities for children. We will camp here again. - Trinket
Sep 2016 - $55.00
This campground is a little tight for big rigs. There are activities and the camp store is nice. Laundry was clean. Arcade machines did not work well. Dog park is nice however it requires a short hike through a pine forest. Nice park otherwise. - Texas Gals
Jun 2015 - $50.00
Big rigs should avoid this park. Narrow entry road off the freeway, no place to park to check in and sites are angled at 90 degrees making them difficult to get in and out of. Staff on arrival was young, unprofessional and not helpful at all. It is in a beautiful setting and would be a nice place to stay with a small unit or a tent. - Amls
Oct 2014 - $50.00
Really nice park with easy interstate access but far enough away to be quiet. Super clean, well maintained and beautiful. If you have an RV 30' or shorter I recommend it. Big rigs should stay away. The sites are long enough but very narrow and to enter or exit your site you need to make a ninety degree turn onto a very narrow road. - Igotjam

Nice park, heavily wooded prohibiting satellite reception. Clean long gravel sites. WiFi not existent. - Field Trip
Aug 2016 - $48.00
Nice clean KOA. Clean outdoor pool, store well stocked. Laundry located in store was good price ($2/wash & .75 dried a medium load). Exercise equipment nice. For some reason television went out and then just one channel worked the last two days of our stay. Some rain. No heavy storms. Grass extremely high at pond and throughout property. Huge yellow jacket nest at entry of women's bathroom. Staff said they have been trying to get rid of it for two weeks. Apparently calling in professional pest control is not an option? - eliterror
