Campground is mostly populated by annual visitors. However the grounds are very well maintained. Mostly grass sites with water and electric. We stayed for two days at mid week. It was very quiet with weekenders starting to arrive on Thursday. Verizon cell signal was strong. There are some shade trees but was still able to get a satellite shot. We did not use the showers, however they appeared very clean. The dump station is easy to navigate.

We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Wheel-In Campground in a Motorhome.

The Jimmy Stewart museum is worth visiting. The Eat'nPark restaurant had very good food.

Nice park for an overnight stay but I would not like it for an extended stay. We were told that they did not have full hook ups - water and electric only. I did not like the lay out of the park requiring an angled back in. Many of the seasonal sites seemed to be overly crowded. We did not stay to experience the recreational amenities of the park. The owner's were enthusiastic, friendly and helpful. We camped at Wheel-In Campground in a Travel Trailer.

First, this is a Passport America park and they give you half off Monday-Thursday. They also give Good Sam discount everyday! The new owners took over March 20th, 2015 and are working to make this excellent park even better. They are a pet friendly park. They are starting a pet service Monday-Thursday where they will walk your dogs (if friendly). This is a lush beautiful park with an outer ring of back-ins and an inner ring of perpendicular to road spaces. The inner lawn has a beautiful pavilion with a large amount of picnic tables under. This set up would be ideal for an RV club or Dutch oven club gathering, or family reunion. This park has a small lake with paddle boats ($1 per 1/2 hour). They can be very proud of their new investment. After all the discounts for a week here was $174. Every site has garbage can. We camped at Wheel-In Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects Passport America. Very quiet, green campground when we were there on a midweek night mid-July. Very few other campers though many trailers were on site (probably seasonally busy on weekends.) Lovely creek, clean restrooms, overall ideal for our needs for a quiet stopover en route to Niagara Falls. We camped at Wheel-In Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice country setting near Indiana, PA. Small campground is very well maintained by owners, who are always nearby and helpful. Grassy fields by the campsites are kept mowed and especially nice for walking pets. Sites are level, on the grass. Full hookups. Bathrooms/showers not new, but well maintained and clean. No pool, but a nice stream by the campground and paddle boats available. No cable, and TV reception not worth putting up the antenna. Wi-Fi available near the office. When we arrived, we thought there were a lot of RVers. However, most of the units were permanent or seasonal. Price reflects Passport America discount. We would definitely return. We camped at Wheel-In Campground in a Motorhome.

On their website they say that this is "Family camping in a peaceful country setting." I have to agree with that 100%. This is a nice, friendly, family campground. This is on Plum Creek so there is fishing and it is located about 20 minutes from Indiana, PA where there are shops and restaurants. The heated bathrooms are clean and close to all of the sites. There is also a nice, large playground and a "tot lot" for the toddlers. The arcade is dated but fun. We camped at Wheel-In Campground in a Tent Trailer.
