This is one of the poorer KOAs (and KOA has asked for feedback, so we aren't the first to comment). In its favor, it is an easy on and easy off campground, however we had to move twice to find a reasonably level site (and there are no mountains in Southern Iowa). Access is through a gas station parking lot and the main building, which houses the office, store and eating space, was unkempt. I would not go back on purpose and would not recommend as a vacation spot, that's for sure.
An untidy campground, an apathetic manager, and the foulest smelling water I've ever encountered. Even if from geological causes, there should be a warning. This was a travel-through campground on our first day out and before we realized the water was so bad, we had partially filled our water tank. At the next campground we had to drain the tank and rinse it several times before refilling. Good points: it was easy to get to. They say a year-round campground - I will be surprised if they last another year, at least with the current management.
One of the really good KOA parks. On this 30 day road trip we stayed here on July 8, and again on on July 30. Exceptionally clean, with helpful office staff and guides. We were charmed by the couple who drove into the park in their proper Amish horse and carriage and then drove back up five minutes later in a golf cart (they can utilize the tools of the non-Amish employer). A repeat visit is in the works.
This has to be one of the nicest campgrounds in the area. We arrived having just had a bad experience in Bloomsburg, Pa., so were ready to settle for an "okay" campground. We were pleased to find this gem of a campground which has one of the cleanest and roomiest rest/shower rooms we've seen, as well as ample and private campsites. This provided a very welcome and restful end to a 30-day road trip. We didn't use the pool but checked it out and found it to be larger than many campground pools and very pristine. I would recommend this to any camper, from tent to big-rig RVs. It's in a beautiful area of Pennsylvania and there would be a lot of nice side trips.
A trek up 5 miles of a winding, narrow road revealed a very rundown campground (though the valley view on the main road was beautiful. The buildings on the campground were very dilapidated (office closed at 5 pm for supper), the shower rooms dank and rundown, and the few sites available were surrounded on all sides by seasonal sites. It looked as though tent campers would have prime sites facing the view and would never have to go into the campground - my only concern would be the condition of the restrooms/showers. I would not recommend this to a "family" for reasons of atmosphere and safety, nor to a camper passing through because of the access.
