The KOA in Ruffs Dale left a lot to be desired. We were in site 17 which was not long with the attached tow. The electric was terrible with both legs being poor. At one point, with the air on, we were getting only 107 amps. Turned on the generator and ran everything full blast to cool us down. Our call to the office about the electric went unanswered for about 4 hours. The breaker was replaced but it didn't help. We were able to use the AC overnite when the overall campground usage was diminished. Each site is a gravel driveway with some grass in between and a picnic table. It's in a valley so that intensified the already hot day. There is an algae laden pond, pool, bounce and playground equipment for kids. We didn't even unhook until we were leaving to make it easier to exit. The Wifi was non existent and our AT&T reception limited our use of the Internet. I don't like to write bad reviews because the owners are small business people but one expects a level of service from KOAs and unfortunately this campground didn't meet expectations. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh S.E. KOA in a Motorhome.

Sites are not level, not even close. After bending my rear jack and tripping the hydraulic breaker I moved to another site. Managed to get almost level and found the dump connection a foot up a hill from my dump outlet, would not drain. Poor cable. Shade is good and park is scenic but needs some site work. Worth about $12, not $45. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh S.E. KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice RV park in the hills but don't if I would stay again. I don't care for the roads in the park. That are gravel and the park is very dusty. My estimation is the park is over priced for the product they offer. The WiFi was great and the sites were level. I am not sure who designs these parks but almost everything is facing south which means you get a hot afternoon sun when you try to sit out. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh S.E. KOA in a Motorhome.

Looks like this isn't a campground, but long term residence for working at natural gas fracking sites. Sites were tight and the place didn't feel inviting at all. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh S.E. KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Easy to find and check in was pleasant. Our water/electric site was long, but muddy, and we needed blocks to level. Wi-Fi worked and cable was OK. It's not easy to see oncoming traffic on exit road, and reentry on the interstate is tricky. This is an OK park for overnight, but we'd not stay longer. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh S.E. KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is only adequate for an overnight stay. Unfortunately, we usually stay longer visitng family in the area and this campground is the best of the worst close to our relatives. This KOA has very narrow sites located on a hillside and there is very little room in between sites. We chose a water/electric site because we damaged our rig getting out of a full hook up site. Smaller rigs may not have as much of a problem. Lots of seasonal campers located here. We decided not to use the dump station as it is slanted incorrectly and would not have allowed our tanks to empty. Verizon cell and air card service is good. This campground is not located in Madison, but in Ruffs Dale, PA. I-70 is really weird in this area. There are no acceleration lanes to get on interstate. You have to stop before entering and hope no one runs you down as you come up to speed. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh S.E. KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The park personnel were extremely rude to our guests. The sites are uninspiring. Will not be a repeat camper. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh S.E. KOA in a Motorhome.

Far from the best Campground I've been at! It's OK for an overnight, but beyond that I wouldn't stay there again for 3 nights. The office, store and game room were far from the campsites. The pool was small with old fashioned ladders that made it difficult to get out of. Most all of the sites were on a steep hill (which is not friendly to seniors and disabled) the toilets/showers needed upgrading...AND YET, they spent a lot of money on some kind of large "pillow bouncy" thing about the size of a tennis court...even though there was barely a playground!

We made an overnight stop here and although it was just adequate for that, not a place we would choose to spend more than one night. Very steep access road, sites tight to get in and out of and all sites are carved out of the side of the hill. The shower facilities were just adequate - water pressure was poor and although clean, bathhouse itself could stand some sprucing up. Once in the park we received a one time only code to exit thru the gate should we need to leave that evening for anything after 8pm. They did have a "pillow jump" that our children enjoyed. The game room was quite a hike from the camping area so we did not use it. Although not unfriendly, the staff were not particularly helpful either. Not a place we would choose to stay again unless we had to. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh S.E. KOA in a Motorhome.

Pulling out of a pull-thru site I scraped the side of my travel trailer on a tree limb. While I should have been paying more attention, the CG should have cut down or trimmed the tree. Since I didn't want to unhitch my van, the pool and the store were too far away to walk. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh S.E. KOA in a Travel Trailer.
