My husband was working long hours in the area and we stayed at Gaslight for a little over a week. The staff was extremely nice and helpful from calling for information and reserving, to welcoming us to the campground and escorting us to our site. We were very pleased with staying here and the only reason I did not give a 10 rating was the water has a lot of iron in it. Having said that, we would definitely stay here again if he is working in the area. The campground was mostly seasonal sites and was very quiet. They have a nice swimming pool and laundry available also and a small store with camping supplies. - msvacation

We stayed here for 12 days, park has potential to be class one park, trees and lots of grass for pet walks, quiet and relaxing. But, we found after spot move, none of the sites are leveled, roads are pitted and after the storm some sites were too muddy to walk out of RV. Potential is there, just need work to make it great. - my86gw

The Parks New Owners are very helpful finding you the right spot for your trailer. The Restrooms you could eat off the floors, showers are Free. The heated pool has salt water, is new and very inviting to get in. The kids loved the playground and they have things going on every weekend. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a Beautiful Place to stay. - Billdavis61

Pride in ownership everywhere you look. The Quiqley family really knows how to run a campground. Bathrooms are spotless; every time I used the restroom it looked like I was the first one to use it after being cleaned. The facilities are exceptionally well maintained. Camp store is quite extensive. The kids had an absolute blast; between the visits with Yogi Bear and all sorts of activities and crafts, no one was ever bored. The staff was very friendly; special shout-out to Miss Cathi (from Texas) and the wonderful treatment she gave my kids. Would not hesitate to visit again even though it is a long drive from our home in Indiana. We spoke with several repeat / seasonal campers (btw, seasonal campsites were very well maintained, not dumpy looking like at some parks) who all voiced the same happiness with this place. It's no wonder they have so many repeat customers. If there was one improvement I could offer, it would be to expand the swimming pool and add a splash pad; word is the owner is considering doing something like that in the future. - Fdwt994

We stayed here for their Halloween celebration. They had trick-or-treating for the kids and a haunted pavilion. This park always amazes. We camped in the overflow area and our site was level and spacious. We will definitely be back. - Trinket

We enjoyed our stay here so much we extended it from 2 days to 5. We stayed here under the 'Tents for Troops" program. The staff members were amicable and the campground well maintained. The road into the campground is paved but bouncy with many branches in need of trimming. (Our rig is very tall at almost max height of 13'4"). Our children enjoyed the weekday activities planned by the staff. We felt very safe with our children riding their bikes to and from the playground without us on their heels. It is a nice place to unwind and relax with family. - TnCBurns

Very clean facilities and, contrary to a couple of reviews, the staff are quite friendly. It is right off I-80 and easily accessible, although the roads are often narrow depending on the part of the campground you are in. The majority of sites are seasonal and most seasonal campers are friendly.
The issue is the teenage population who run unchecked in their parents' golf carts at all hours. On the whole, they are loud, reckless, and drive without concern for those walking along the road and have nearly run me down on two occasions. This stands to ruin an otherwise awesome place and I really hope they can get this under control. Clean pool with lifeguards, passable 18 hole golf course, snack bar, game room and close proximity to Clarion, PA and Cooks Forest. - HmmHaah

It took us three different sites to find one that was somewhat level. We asked if they had a hot tub, were told yes. Well they have one but the water was cold. Now we have to ask if they have a hot tub hot. We would not camp here again. - User1608

We stayed in the Mercer / Grove City KOA for the 4th of July weekend and were very happy with our experience. The site we were in is highly recommended. Site number 96 was wonderful, as it appears to be a combination of two prior sites into one. There is a little deck with the picnic table, but it is not considered the premium KOA patio site. Site 96 backs to the woods. There is a large pile of cut down trees back in the woods. Not sure why they have decided to keep that pile there as there are several like it around the campground. They should consider cleaning those up. Truly, that's the only thing I have to say that is even near negative. The campground was clean, quiet, and well managed. Trash pick up at site, a nice dog play area with obstacles that our dog loved, easy enough campground to walk or bike. A fishing lake is across the street; we went there late in the day and didn't walk around it, but looks large enough to enjoy a leisurely/casual fishing time. Lots of activities around the main building and activity building. We didn't use the pool, but could see that it was heated. Not large, but looks very comfortable for the people that were using it.
This campground is close to the outlets in Grove City. It will actually take you longer to find a parking space at the outlets than to actually leave your campsite and drive on to the outlet property!
There is a Walmart about 15 minutes away - it is not a Super Walmart.
Some people have left reviews before saying the 'road noise' near the front of the campground could be bothersome, but honestly, this is a country road. Yes, it can get a little noisy, but it's not a freeway. You hear some motorcycles, pickups, and tractors but truthfully, it's not a bother.
Very nice campground, a testament to the KOA name, great staff, clean, quiet, worth the money, great access to I-79. - ripwild

Very nice campground. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We only stayed overnight as it was our halfway point to Ohio. From our limited stay I can say it appears to be well kept. - Smokinlen

Very nice, well maintained park. They were just putting up hanging baskets for the summer. Their well maintained bocce court was inviting enough to play a round. Garbage pickup at your site. Lots of seasonal folks but it didn't matter as they have their own separate area. - hoppers4

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

This review is based on staying in a pop-up site. Had we been in our motorhome my review would have been totally different. That being said, if you have a pop-up I cannot and will not recommend this campground, especially on a holiday weekend. The good news was there were separate bathrooms for pop-ups right by the sites plus a wash tub for pots and pans. Decent pool, arcade, entertainment on the weekend. The bad news was sewage treatment right in front of all of the pop-up sites. One breaker served ALL pop-ups (we never had full power all weekend). Management does not care if your electricity goes out; sewage also goes out when the circuit breaker trips so you get nice odors. The shower stalls were extremely small and cramped. Management actually told us we had "excessive use of electricity" by trying to run a small apartment fridge and our AC, even though other workers told us that every large weekend they had issues with the electricity on those sites. At most we could run a fan in our pop-up on a 90 degree weekend. Could not make coffee in the morning because it would trip all of the sites in that section (and then we would get blamed for excessive use of electricity). All this for $44 a night. NEVER again. - chemgoddess1

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

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

This park is nice enough. It is clean and well kept. The only downside is that the sites are incredibly small. Super duper small. We had a nice time and the staff was friendly. - sackspa

Has the feel of a mobile home park. There are a lot of permanent RVs setup and year round residents here. The roads are narrow throughout the park and were muddy during our 2 night stay here. There lots of pine trees & tree stumps on the RV sites. The park has 5-6 pull-through full hookup sites for overnight guests. The sites are lightly graveled & short. Our 35 ft fit the site but we had to disconnect & angle our truck so it wasn't out in the road. About as far from being a resort as you can get. We won't stay here again. - sbelle55

Directions on website say don't follow GPS but their directions are confusing. They tell you to go west but the sign says N or S.
Site are FHU 50amp, PTH, gravel with grass. They are close but enough room between. No cable but TV over antenna. Playground, pool. No dog run but places to walk. Permanent sites were OK. Fine for an overnight. - jcpjane

Would not stay here again. Power surges over 130 and below 103. Talked to office and their solution was use 30 amp to 50 adapter. Tried to run 1 ac with everything else in rv off power fluctuations all over the scale. - Genecolleen

Stayed at this campground for 2 nights in order to visit and see attractions in the area. Stayed on row 29 site 9. The roads and sites are tight for “any” type of RV. Entering through the gate in a motorhome, it was impossible to reach the card swipe to open the gate because it is at car level and none at motorhome level. The wife had to get out and swipe in order to open the gate. Upon passing through the gate the entire length of the rig roof was scraped by low branches. And navigating the roads and into your site in a motorhome is all but impossible without people moving cars, fire rings and picnic tables. It is a three ring circus getting parked. Having previously explained to the campground upon reserving the size of our motor-home and it having four slides, proved to be of no benefit. Our site was so skinny it was impossible to open the driver side slide without hitting the power utility stand. Thus it was necessary to move the coach away from the power stool, which put the passenger side of the coach off the gravel and into the grass. At this point opening the awning was not an option as it would have extended into the road where there was much traffic as it was the main exit road for the bulk of the permanent and seasonal campers. The site was not level as it was low on the back end side which is not good when raising the back end of a motorhome. To achieve level would have required the rear wheels to come off the ground and we do not do that. Thus we spent the two days not level. And at the same time the sewer hose connection resulted in the hose running uphill to achieve a connection. It worked, but was certainly not ideal. Bottom line the campground is not “big rig” friendly; they should have told us straight up upon reservation that they can not properly handle the big rigs; however it is also not friendly for average RV sizes. The shape of the office building smacks of being a former KOA and most of those are pretty cramped if you have ever been to a few of them. The pool was not heated and too cold to use in early July, however it was not our intent to use this park for it’s amenities outside of a site hookup for our rig. There is one Wi-Fi connection that is free. From our site it was out of range. There are numerous strong Wi-Fi points which are part of the Mesh Network and require creating or having a Mesh Network account and paying for the time used. The power at our site was 50 amp and appeared to be recently upgraded as it was new looking. The metering within our rig showed the voltages to be acceptable at 117 and 118 per each line phase. The park is best suited to very small RVs such as pop ups and tent campers. Larger motorhomes should certainly avoid this place. We would not return. - Denny Pike

We camped at vacationland over Memorial day weekend. We had reservations with our group but were given a different site because our site was occupied by someone not with our group. Our new site was right across from the garbage dump. Power supply read between 93 and 100 volts all weekend, not good. We couldn't use A/C which wasn't a problem until the garbage dump got ripe. It was 85 degrees all weekend. Seasonal campers advised the power issue is a common problem. This is an old park with very narrow paved roads. It is not easy to maneuver a large rig through. Good for tent campers or pop ups. Owner was not very nice to deal with. We will not be returning here again. - Motorman173

We stayed here for 3 nights. Our site was by the main activity area. There was very high golf cart traffic at this campground which made it almost dangerous to walk or ride bikes. The noise was another factor which made our stay miserable. The bathrooms/showers were clean when we got here Friday, but by Monday they were very dirty, never cleaned all weekend. Trash cans were overflowing and scattered on the floor. On a good note, State Park right down the road has a great bike trail 11 miles long. Good fishing nearby also. Not sure if we would ever come here again. - Todd and Sue

Is geared towards seasonals. They have over 200 seasonal sites and about 15-20 visitor sites. Owner is very nice and personally escorted us and helped us park. It was reasonably close to Pittsburgh and we were visiting family, that's why we chose it. When we pulled up we stopped at a gate to enter the park, we were told to back up and go up a dirt path to the visitor sites. The seasonal sites are behind a gate and surrounded by a fence. We felt like an afterthought and an outcast. For the weekend it was us and maybe 4 other RV's, but they parked us all close together. The sites are laid out oddly, the electric and water hookups are on the opposite than most other campgrounds and we had to run the hoses across our site. The sewer hookup for the next site was super close to our picnic table and fire pit (like within 6 feet) The sites were very narrow, we could not fit out truck in front of the site, even perpendicular. The neighbors had a fire and they were so close I was afraid of our tanks exploding. We asked permission to receive mail there and they allowed it but didn't notify us that anything arrived and seemed annoyed when we asked. The restrooms were clean, we had to walk quite a ways around a building or else jump the fence and walk through the seasonal side. Lots of options for the area, we probably wont stay here again. Price was comparable to others. - sbrigga315

We didn't notice any of the ruts as mentioned in other reviews. There are two speed bumps, one on the entrance road and one at the entrance to the transient camp area. Neither are unusual. Our site was very nice with plenty of room. It slopped back to front and right to left, but we were able to level with out too much effort. Good cable TV. Bad WiFi. Given the overall lack of full hook-up sites in the general area, this campground is a gem. We would return if in the area. - 15243

The Pittsburgh area has very few CGs around, and this is one of the better ones we have used. The CG is overwhelmingly permanents, and the transient section is separate (about 20 sites). The sites were 100% grass, which is great when the weather cooperates. Our site, and many others had very deep depressions where the camper sits. It is basically a hole, I suppose from years of camping, without any attempt to fill and level the site. If you had a lot of rain, you would be sitting over top of a giant puddle under your unit. The hole was so deep that our bottom step nearly rested on the ground. But, we had good weather, and the abundant grassy areas made for great play areas and sites for pick up games for the kids. And when outside, the grass was soft under your feet, so going barefoot was very comfortable. The road into the CG and to the site had numerous and very tall speed bumps. Use care, as there are numerous indications of hitches, etc. hitting them. There is a very tight turn at the top of the hill, and having forgotten to take off my sway bars, one popped out and I drug it for several yards without realizing it. Not necessarily the CGs fault: just a warning. The office staff was courteous, but not overly friendly. The site shares an electrical post with the adjoining site, and the folks there had taken the only 30A outlet. The office supplied me with an adapter pigtail, no questions asked. Laundry and bath houses are all in the permanent section, which has a coded gate. You have to drive there if you have a load of laundry as it is too hilly and far away to walk. If no one is in the office, you are out of luck getting through the gate. Grounds were well tended, and pool looked clean. Definitely an older CG, but it seemed to be adequately cared for. We would use this CG again. - begerter

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

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
