Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $17.00
All roads are paved except to the tenting area that has no hookups. Sites are paved and for the most part level, some shaded and some in the open. Full hookups on most sites, the W/E sites are mostly quite nice. If full site was not available I'd definitely stay in a W/E site. No Cell (AT&T), 5 TV channels, No WIFI. Our site was roomy, level, quiet and semi-shaded. We camped at Ives Run COE in a Motorhome.

Very nice park. It is well kept, good water pressure and strong 50 amp. Not a lot for kids but great for those who like to fish. The PA Grand Canyon is only 20 miles and 15 miles to Wellsboro. A lot of sites don't have sewer but do have dump station. Paved sites with shade but many sites are not level. We stay here several times in the summer. We camped at Ives Run COE in a Motorhome.

We love COE parks. However, this one was showing its age with narrow winding campground roads, tight sites, and average washrooms. A fair drive in from the main N-S interstate as well. We would likely not return. We camped at Ives Run COE in a Motorhome.
A great COE campground and beautiful spot off the beaten path. Our site was two away from the lake, so the view was great. Would stay here again and recommend. Bathroom facilities were so-so - there were no showers in our section and the small restrooms were recent vintage but all metal fixtures had rusted out. We camped at Ives Run COE in a Motorhome.
Rate for E/W/S with senior pass. Paved sites level side to side some slope front-back. Nice large sites on a pretty lake. Lots of easy walking around the campground. Bathrooms were very clean, but somewhat old. Recommend this park. It was busy during July and lots of smokey campfires. It is about 15 miles to a grocery. We camped at Ives Run COE in a Fifth Wheel.

This is our favorite COE park. The cost indicated is with the Federal Senior Passport discount. Huge sites, FHU, picnic table, fire ring. Even a laundry but with only two washers and dryers. Playgrounds for the kiddies. Very well maintained. Be sure to reserve EARLY! Most weekends are fully booked months in advance. We camped at Ives Run COE in a Fifth Wheel.

This facility is a GEM! The rate quoted is the rate with a Federal Senior Access Card. The views great, the sites large, a very clean park. We were impressed as this was our first experience in a COE park. However, make reservations early in the year. Impossible to get in on a weekend if you don't. We camped at Ives Run COE in a Fifth Wheel.
This is our favorite park to date after 4 months of full-time RV'ing. We had a 50 amp plus water (no sewer) site right on Lake Hammond with sunrises right on the lake. There's great short hikes up and around the park. The PA Grand Canyon Rails to Trail bike path is about 15 miles south of the park - very nice biking terrain. We had a problem with our 50 amp outlet and staff fixed it in short order. The camping store is small but has the essentials. We're heading north and may come back on our way back south. We camped at Ives Run COE in a Motorhome.
We have camped here a number of times and it seems like its gone down hill a bit. We made repeated requests to have bathrooms cleaned and they just did not seem to be getting it done. A number of sites had trouble with water pressure and the water hookups were making loud squealing noises each time the water inside the rig was used. A problem for the folks next to us in tents in the middle of the night. We camped at Ives Run COE in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice COE. Water and electric was good. Well spaced-out camp sites on cement pads. Nice town of Wellsboro is 15 miles away, also the Grand Canyon of PA is 22 miles. Lake sites have no sewer. Would camp here again. We camped at Ives Run COE in a Motorhome.

Great campground. We always enjoy a stay at the COE parks. Park was quite full during the weekend and there was no problems. Rangers were ever present. We would definitely come back to this park. We camped at Ives Run COE in a Fifth Wheel.
Unfortunately, our experience at Ives Run was horrible. When we got to our site there was no electric. We called and let them know. They never called back and no one showed up. A massive storm was coming, so I called and asked about moving sites. The clerk said yes and gave me the site # to move to. Well when I started to back in, the people next to us came over yelling at us, saying the site was for their family and they had reservations. I explained I was told to move here. Wouldn't you know, a ranger showed up telling us not to hook up! A thunderstorm was coming in, and one hand did not know what the other hand was doing. We were only planning on one night, so I called Watkins Glen KOA and our site for the week was vacant, so we continued on up and added a night at the KOA. We were given the run around beyond belief. It took 4 phone calls to get our money back. The person on the phone and the ranger were giving us total conflicting information. By the way, our electric worked in the morning before we headed out, and when we got to the KOA. We camped at Ives Run COE in a Fifth Wheel.
We love this park. We camped here last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. Heading back again for a week in July. The sites are very spacious. Park is quiet. Staff is friendly. Our dogs love it here. We have a spot that overlooks the lake, very beautiful. Lots of grass on our spot in Birch Loop. This is by far our favorite spot so far. We camped at Ives Run COE in a Motorhome.
Clean, Clean and Clean. We camped here for the first time in May of 2010. Our site, on the Aspen loop (#52) was absolutely perfect. Since we had reservations, check-in was a speedy process. We stayed with another couple and their two children. The only “additional” charge was for their vehicle. The site fee was $30 (W/S/E) per night and that is for up to seven people per site. We walked around and noted some other sites (54,14,15, (122,123=Long Cord),101,100,96,97) that we would like to say at in the future. Make sure to bring extra lengths of electric cords, water hoses and sewer hoses. Our site had 20, 30 & 50 Amp service. Some of the utility hook ups were up to 30’ away from the actual site. This campground has plenty to offer in or around the area. In the campground you will find some hiking / biking trails. Plenty of bird watching with Osprey nests located in the park. Close by there is Colton Point & Leonard Harrison State Park: both will offer some spectacular views of the canyon. We camped at Ives Run COE in a Travel Trailer.
