The park was well kept. Sites were average KOA size (too small IMO). Wi-Fi was terrible; cable good; nice shade trees. We camped at Allentown KOA in a Motorhome.

Rate is after KOA discount. The positive is people great, clean park and good pull thru site. Now the negatives: to reach this campground you travel 7 long miles through a busy commercial area and the turn to reach this property downright dangerous. As you wait to make a left hand turn vehicles are flying down this hill and this is what you have to deal with when you are leaving. No we will not be staying here again. We camped at Allentown KOA in a Motorhome.

We camped at a creek-side site, but it was an unpleasant up-hill walk to the bath house. We camped at Allentown KOA in a Motorhome.

Convenient for an overnight, but would also be nice to visit the area. Entrance road is very narrow, but easy to find. Our full hookup site was level with excellent hookups and good Wi-Fi. Office staff very welcoming and the gentleman that took us to our site was friendly and helpful. We would stay here again. We camped at Allentown KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a tough park to find and maneuver a larger rig in. We could not level our rig without the front tires off the ground. Office staff was friendly. Sites were a bit cramped. We had no problem with hookups. If we were to go here again we would request W/E only as the full hookup sites are not very good for larger rigs towing a vehicle. We arived sometime around midnight and one of the workers was there to help us get into our site, very dark so it was nice to be assisted in getting into the site as it was extreemly tight. Same person helped get us out of the park as the site we were in was too cramped to make the right hand turn out as a hedge was in the way. We camped at Allentown KOA in a Motorhome.

Beautiful RV park located not far off Rt. 78 near Allentown PA. We had a very nice streamfront site, ground was level and sites were not as packed together as some other places we've been to. Bathrooms and showers were very clean, there were two nice playgrounds to keep our 3yo busy, as well as a mini-golf set up by the stream. The folks who ran the place were friendly as well. We plan to come back in the future when we want to visit this area of PA. We camped at Allentown KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The staff was very nice and helpful. The site we were in had a significant slope to it (front to back). The wood landscaping around the hookups was very slippery when wet. I fell and hit my head and back. Although the ice cream truck was on their calendar, parents became alarmed when the children took off after as it drove around the park. We enjoyed the air hockey and pool table in the activity room. We camped at Allentown KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We really like this KOA park. Very friendly and helpful staff. All facilities are well kept and spotless. Located in a shaded and quiet valley. Only negative comment is it's hard to get level in some of the sites (58&59). We stay here (2nd time) to go to Dorney Park with the grandkids. Also, about 7 miles away is Bear Rock Junction with great mini golf, train ride, ice cream etc. A word of caution: When going to the park, keep your speed down when you're on PA-100 approaching Narris Rd. There's a big KOA sign but it's at the bottom of a long hill and it's easy to overshoot the turn. We camped at Allentown KOA in a Motorhome.

This was a stop over for us. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The escort to the site time near closing was a very nice touch. The sites are generously sized and level. There are a fair number of KOA camping cabins and the place seemed to be a family destination. It is a few miles off the interstate but the advantage is that it is very quiet. The price was reasonable. Our major complaint was that the dump station is way out of level front to back and you block the entry way while dumping upon exit. We would definitely stay here again.

Quiet, friendly park. It may not matter to you, but the units are parked with doors facing the neighbor's doors. Close to Cabela's, Crayola Experience, something for everyone. Didn't notice the sign when we drove in: "Road Construction Ahead. Travel At Your Own Risk." In one place the narrow road to the campground is down to one lane because the outside lane is washing down the hill. No mention of that on the website where we made reservations. We camped at Allentown KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice campground but small. The owners were very kind and helpful. We stayed overnight. Very quiet and peaceful campground away from major highways. We camped at Allentown KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park; small. The owners were very kind and helpful. They were doing some construction so they didn't have full hookups but over all it was nice and I would stay there again if in the area. We camped at Allentown KOA in a Motorhome.

We have adopted this KOA as our "home" campground, spending Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends here annually. There is a mix of roomy sites and some that are cramped. Big-rig/pull-through sites with full hookups are gravel only and sloped; the back-in full hookup sites are shorter, more level, and have grassy areas. There are many level water & electric sites across the creek, and also pull throughs that are nicer and larger than those with full hookups. Bathroom/shower facilities are kept meticulously clean and staff regularly picks up trash and keeps the place clean. Office staff is personable and efficient. The store is well stocked. Security is on duty through the night and quiet hours are enforced. Alcohol is prohibited. Two playgrounds for kids, mini-golf, pet area, activities and hayrides. KOA's tend to be expensive but this one is a good value. The access road from PA Rt. 100 is narrow and due to a washout is single lane at one point, but passable even for large motorhomes. We camped at Allentown KOA in a Travel Trailer.

I have only two negative comments. 1.The pull through sites, where we were, are pretty heavily sloped and made quite a chore of leveling a 4-footed motorhome. 2. Almost no Verizon cell signal. (Yes, I know it's not their fault.) Otherwise, I have only good things to say. In the past, I've been very critical of KOA's poor reservation and registration services, because of problems and disappointments at several other parks, but the staff in this office set a new standard. This should be the training model for all other KOA's. And the staff is totally proficient in all the other aspects of catering to their campers. The pool, bathrooms, laundry, office, roads and grounds are spotless. Ah, forget the negative stuff. Come here. You'll like it. We camped at Allentown KOA in a Motorhome.

This campground is very well maintained, with helpful staff. We did not find the sites crowded and the roads were recently graveled. The showers and bathrooms were immaculate. They have a wide range of activities planned, especially for the kids. Movies, crafts and games every day with a hayride on Saturday nights with free ice cream. Only problem was no cell coverage because the campground is located in a valley. Wi-Fi was usually good. We camped at Allentown KOA in a Motorhome.
