Mixed bag on this place. Way too expensive for an overnight or two. The lake (with good fishing) is beautiful and our lakeside campsite was stunning. But our 30-amp site was far from level. Bring quarters for the showers - 25 cents per 5 minutes. The clerk in office said the charge was "to keep people from wasting water." Lots of seasonal campers in nice rigs. We stayed on a Saturday night. A DJ played in the "barn" until 11 p.m., and it sounded like a car with a boom box was nearby - maybe fun for some guests, but for those looking for peace and quiet, annoying. This might be a wonderful place to spend a month or season and probably a great place to bring kids because the pool and the beach are super nice with water craft rentals, too. But for short stay without kids, not a good bang for the buck. We camped at Keen Lake Camping & Cottage Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a mostly seasonal CG in a beautiful setting. The sites for travelers are a bit odd; ours was called a pull-through but it was really a pull-in since there was no way we could have continued to drive through. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Our biggest issue with the place is that the roads accessing it for the last mile or two are very narrow and have lots of overhanging trees. When leaving, I brushed a tree that knocked off my awning wind sensor which made this an expensive overnight stop. There aren't many CGs in this part of PA along the I-84 route but this is not exactly what you'd call easy on/easy off for an overnight stay. If you do stay here, definitely call for directions. Your GPS may put you on roads that are unsuitable for your RV. Coming from the north-west on US6 is definitely an easier way to get here than coming from the east and south on US6. We camped at Keen Lake Camping & Cottage Resort in a Motorhome.

This is one of the best campgrounds around. It is family owned and geared toward family fun. They go out of their way to make your visit one you will remember. They have swimming, boating, fishing, games and fun for the whole family. It's a great place. We camped at Keen Lake Camping & Cottage Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here on Memorial Day weekend. Two adults and three kids. Both the holiday and kids impacted the rate ($80 per night).

Very nice park. Beautiful lake. Lots of activities. Very nice staff - really welcoming. Mostly paved roads (not all). You MUST take a boat out and check out the lake - great paddle boats. Nice restrooms - some seem to be recent builds.

Note that there are a LOT of kids and dogs. We had both, so met our needs.

The challenges: Our site was small - barely fit the slides due to a couple of evergreens. Needed more crushed stone - a lot of dirt at the sites. You had to pay for showers (not sure of the price). Campground was a bit pricey.

Bottom line - we enjoyed our stay and are booking again for next year. Partially due to proximity to our home - and the great activities.

Room Tip: Site 7 had a good view of the lake and very close to the beach/activities. Noisy as a result. Small. Next time we are staying up by the ball fields. We camped at Keen Lake Camping & Cottage Resort in a Motorhome.

For us, it was a short stay. It was nice to walk around. It had a big lake and pool. It was pet friendly and kid friendly and it had a nice feel to it, with a large seasonal crowd. We would return. We camped at Keen Lake Camping & Cottage Resort in a Motorhome.

If you are a tent camper they had a lot of beautiful tent sites and they also had nice cottages to rent. They had an island in the middle of the lake that you could take a row boat out and rent a cottage on the island too. We thought it was cool.

This is a very large park, with most sites located on a hillside across a road from the lake. It was a long ride to the far end of the park to our site. Our site was one of two tucked in with some seasonals. Sites are very tight and not very level, although we were able to get reasonable level. Hookups were excellent, but Wi-Fi was very weak, either nonexistent, or on for a short time and then off. The park is a long way from highways for an overnight stop. We would not stay here again just for an overnight. We camped at Keen Lake Camping & Cottage Resort in a Motorhome.

Older park with many permanents. Narrow roads with a public road running right through it. Pool was too small for such a large park. Place like this should not charge extra, as they do, for kids and A/C. My low rating is based on value. Should be a $28 /day park. We camped at Keen Lake Camping & Cottage Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed for two nights. It's dangerous to get in and out of from the main road. The entrance is on a turn and you can't see what is coming in or out. Some of the roads in the campground are just wide enough for your camper. The directions given to campsite 99 couldn't be made with the truck and 30 foot camper. My wife had to walk along to make sure I didn't hit anything. The campsites are small. Everything closes early: Laundry room - 4pm and swimming pool - 6pm. We had to watch our own kids in the pool. The lifeguard seem to be more interested in the babes sunbathing. I would say that 90% are seasonal sites. The people are friendly and helpful, except for directions to our site. We camped at Keen Lake Camping & Cottage Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This was our first time at this campground and we were very impressed. We've stayed at another campground in the area and it doesn't compare to Keen Lake. The camp store was nice and was open until 11 p.m. Staff was friendly and helpful. Our campsite was a bit of a tight squeeze getting into, but the staff warned us of that. There are a lot of seasonals and a large number of teens running around the campground and "hanging out", but they were not too loud and friendly. All the seasonals sites were clean and well-maintained. It is a nice campground and the only campground we said we would consider getting a seasonal site at. We camped at Keen Lake Camping & Cottage Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Keen Lake campground is a wonderful, restful place. As always it ranks a 10 with me. This time I was at site L11 with a lakefront. Easy access for boating and the fishing was great. Keen Lake is a must visit! We camped at Keen Lake Camping & Cottage Resort in a Motorhome.

Great campground; we come here every year! When not cooking in the RV or the camp fire we were at the Gravity Inn, a little known place in Waymart, very family friendly with awesome food and prices. We camped at Keen Lake Camping & Cottage Resort in a Motorhome.

Keen Lake was a nice campground. It was quiet at night which is one of our favorite things. The activities for the kids were plentiful and fun. The pool was VERY crowded, but clean. The lake is gorgeous, and the boating was nice. We will probably go back here. We camped at Keen Lake Camping & Cottage Resort in a Travel Trailer.

I recommend this park. I recommend sites on top of the hill as they are spacious and there is close access to two playgrounds. The staff were so helpful and friendly. There are hourly activities for the kids. The pool is crystal clear and not very crowded. We definitely will be camping here again. We camped at Keen Lake Camping & Cottage Resort in a Motorhome.
