Very well-run campground. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Great family atmosphere. Lots of activities. Good power and water, lots of cable channels. Store prices are very reasonable. We camped at Meadville KOA (Was Brookdale Family Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Buy the activity band for the kids. Much cheaper than paying for individual activities. Paid for itself several times over the weekend. If you like to fish or have kids who want to try, bring your rods because the ponds are well stocked. Roads throughout the campground are good for bikes.

Good: beautiful grounds. Not so good: park on grass, no gravel or patio, 1st site not level. They immediately moved us to another site. The security gate although nice to have, was inconvenient. Had to put up $10 deposit for an entry key. You had to leave the camping area to get to the dumpster, store or laundry, then drive back thru the gate to get back to your RV. Water pressure so low you couldn't start 2 washers at same time in laundry. Yellow flies were so thick most of the days that we couldn't sit outside. For the price we wouldn't stay here again. We camped at Meadville KOA (Was Brookdale Family Campground) in a Motorhome.

Sites are spacious and in a shady area under tall trees. You are escorted to your site and given help parking. On weekends there is a jumping pillow available. There also are pedal boats, catch and release fishing pond, and a nice swimming pool.There is a security gate, and there are rules that are strictly enforced to ensure everyone's safety and enjoyment. When our son, who was camping next to us, encountered some problems, the owners went way out of their way to help. The campground is very nice and we will camp there again when we are in the area. We camped at Meadville KOA (Was Brookdale Family Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Construction all the way through town to get to the campground, (Not their fault) then, an approximate 5 mile ride to get to the campground on a curvy 2 lane road. Staff was very friendly and apologetic about the inconvenience. Beautiful, level campsite amongst the tall pine trees. Nice, but tracked in LOTS of pine needles. Amenities were satisfactory- had no trouble with cable TV. Think it was overpriced considering the construction and distance that we had to travel from RT 79. Nice campground, but nothing more than we'd expect from a KOA. We camped at Meadville KOA (Was Brookdale Family Campground) in a Motorhome.

We were parked on a sloping site that was so low we could not step up on our first step. So, we were moved to another. The cable hook up was so low it was a problem. The place is peaceful and pretty area with rolling hills. We will find a cheaper and better place next time. We camped at Meadville KOA (Was Brookdale Family Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

We did not find the office staff to be friendly --- a smile now and then is not too much to ask for. Campground appears to have some security with gate at entrance. Looks like a large portion of the full hookup sites are occupied by seasonal campers. All looked to be in good shape and well maintained. Roads are a little rough here and there. A fair amount of work needs to be done to get the full hookup sites in level condition. We stayed here during the week so cannot comment on weekend activities. Showers and restrooms were clean although we did not use them. Both were limited in the actual camping area but more were available at the office which is a fair walk from the campsites --- can’t understand the reasoning behind this situation. Our biggest concern was the availability of water at the full hookup sites. The faucets are at ground level or below; hence dirt has to be removed to turn them on and off. We have never experienced this in over thirty years of camping. This is most inconvenient for older campers and deserves immediate ownership attention. This campground is quite a jaunt off of I-79 through some inner town streets and traffic. The WIFI was very slow most of the time.

We were here last year and again this year on Memorial day, had other plans but had to change due to a death in family. Owners and staff go overboard to help and are very friendly and smiling. Clean, nice except , don't park your pickup under the pine trees as they bleed and it's hard to get off the finish. It was cold, 31 degrees 3 mornings in a row, not their fault. I had a clogged sewer and they were very helpful. Took 5 min. We will go back anytime we are in Meadville. Tuesday morning 5/13 we were about 1 of 5 left and Wed morning the place was empty and very quiet. Store has quite a few items.

We went to the KOA because another park does not have any running water at the sites. It was quiet, shady, and had a picnic table and fire ring. The lady who checked us in and the owners were very friendly, and they have a nice little store plus propane gas. This KOA is isolated, close to a bar that serves chicken wings in about 20 different flavors, and we never saw a mosquito. Lots of space.

Great Family Park. Grandchildren loved it. Sites are big enough but not huge. They plan lots of activities for everyone. Very neat and clean. Would go back again if traveling this way. We camped at Meadville KOA (Was Brookdale Family Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Great customer service! The electricity was not hooked up in our site the first night, so they gave us the first night free even through we already got one night free in the week rate (the rate shown does not include the comped night for the electrical outage). There is lots to do in the area including great bike trails, very nice golf courses and lots for the kids to do in the park.

This was the first tent camping trip for my family that was not in a state park. We were very impressed with this campground. The owners were very accommodating for my family, as we had an issue at arrival that was quickly resolved. The fishing was great, the lakes are well stocked and the family activities carried on throughout the weekend. I can't comment on big-rig camping or the like as we used a tent, but my family will be back to this campground in the future. We camped at Meadville KOA (Was Brookdale Family Campground) in a Tent.

We stayed 3 nights at this campground, and this was our 4th stay in the last 3 years. This is a very nice campground with lots of activities for all ages. We stayed at one of the lake-front sites: it was very spacious and quite. We camped at Meadville KOA (Was Brookdale Family Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

First of all, this park is not "in" Meadville but 10 miles from downtown on narrow streets and country roads. Next, the owner has a big case of attitude that you have to deal with at check-in. Then you are sent out to a site on the side of a hill that even when you get the coach level, you practically need a ladder to get into your coach. Then, the 50 amp service that you paid for doesn't work. Then, you discover that the advertised Wi-Fi is only available in the office, a half mile away. Then, when you take your laptop to the office to check email, you are directed to a game room with noisy electronic games and no adult seating. We had planned to stay here for two to three weeks but due to numerous factors not the least of which was the owner's attitude, we moved on after two nights and, will not be back.

All in all, not a bad place to stay. It is a ways off the interstate for an overnight stop as we did, but a nice place for a weekend, maybe. Construction on the interstate made it confusing to find the campground, you must travel through town with tight turns and narrow streets. The sites were not very level with bumpy, potholed gravel access roads to the sites. The sites are numbered in a crazy fashion, we were assigned site 42, the site post was numbered 142?? The site numbers were written in white on the gray electrical boxes, nearly impossible to see. Office staff was less than cordial, unusual for a private campground. We might stop here again, but only as a last resort and not for more than an overnight. We camped at Meadville KOA (Was Brookdale Family Campground) in a Motorhome.

We really liked this park. The site we were in was really nice and shady. With beautiful cotton trees surrounding it. These little cotton seed were flying around, it was neat to watch. They have a nice store, 7 ponds to fish in, and ducks walking around to feed. The kids rode a train ride and had a blast. The playground was nice. The swings were a little different than normal. If you leave the park and come back after 9pm you have to pay $10 for a security gate key, but you get a refund when you turn it in. We really had a nice time here.
