3 Parks near Mercer, Pennsylvania
Jun 2015 - $62.00
This is a nice location and campground. It is older and I only had 30 amp service, but the site was long and had trees with shade. When we arrived a woman switched us to a very easy-in site instead of having to drive through the campground to get to the spot. It was 62 dollars on the weekend and 54 during the week. The staff was friendly and helpful and the grounds were well cared for and pretty. The Wi-Fi was good, as was the cable. It needs cable as I doubt you could shoot either DTV or Dish.
The back part of the campground looked like it was full of seasonal units and makes you wonder why they stay a KOA. You are not far from Amish buggy and horses that are fun to watch on the roads as you pass them. It is pretty quiet here as well. I would stay here again. - John S.

Rate reflects one night stay with KOA card discount. Not a bad park with sites long and well spaced. The access roads in the park are narrow and very treed making site access and exit difficult. Some are better than others and suggest you look before accepting a site. We had site 24 which borders highway 258 which was very noisy. At night the traffic subsided but every 10-15 minutes a loud truck or motorcycle would roar by making sleep difficult. The sites were gravel but you will need to go onto the grass to access your site and it was very muddy. Showers and restrooms were very clean. Cable was great. - Kbob

Park is nice with large level pull through sites, trees and easily accessed hookups. Lots of puddles and soggy ground but not in our or nearby sites. Our site was very quiet - this may have been due to the early season and few other campers. We would stay here again. - Vista Queen

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
May 2013 - $40.00
We stayed here over Memorial day weekend. If you have a big rig it is going to be tight for you. There is a steep climb from the office to the campground above and our site was not very level and a bit of a challenge to get into. Bath house is clean but not heated, so it was cold. Wouldn't want to have to use it in the spring or fall when its really cold. You're not allowed to bring a golf cart, but the permanents all have them, and they like to parade into the overnight sites to rub it in. Owner seemed nice ,but very strict. There is not much of a playground for the kids and it is located with the permanent sites not central. They seem to cater to the permanent campers. Overall it has potential, but we will probably not stay here again. - Motorman173

Trailer park feel to the place with mostly permanent and seasonals.
Golf carts literally everywhere on the weekends.
Full hook-up sites are small, pine tree covered and mixed in with the permanent residents, even though a lot of them seemed empty.
Roads are somewhat difficult to squeeze a large rig between the pines.
No WIFI throughout the park but only a pay-as-go wifi hotspot at the store/office that has a limit of 720mb of data, then your service is slowed to 56k speed.
Smoking at the pool.
Tennis court has large cracks that could swallow a ball or twist/break an ankle.
Ball field is an open field with no signs of an actually used ball field--just grass--no marks in dirt for bases.
Minigolf course is small but works. Playground is older looking but is fairly large. Pool is enormous-3ft to 10ft depth and 75' x 45'.
About 1/4-1/2 mile away from camp office there is a small dirty fishing pond under the heavy covering of trees that is stocked with panfish and possibly catfish--I didn't see any Bass.
I would feel totally ripped off if I paid the full price as this place is barely worth the discount rate especially for a place that advertises itself as a 'resort.'
Kids, however, would not care about the aforementioned issues and would probably enjoy themselves even if they are having to dodge golf carts during the weekend or breath cigarette smoke at the pool.
The passport rate is honored all days of the week; therefore, that makes up for some of the issues.
If you have to stay here then stay in the open area across from the campstore/office. It only offers water/electric and has a few 30amp spots. Not sure about 50amp.
I would stay here again for the passport rate; if money was no issue I would look elsewhere. - mynyel

Sep 2013 - $17.00
This is mostly a seasonal park. They do have pull through sites, but WiFi is not available on them, only at the office which is only open until about 3 P.M. No cable TV, can get a few channels with antenna. Park was clean, sites were extra long and good space between them. Picnic tables and fire rings at each site. Was nice and quiet. We were visiting family and it was a nice value. Rate was for Passport America. - plynnlinn001
