We stayed at the Butterfly Camping Resort this past weekend in a Travel Trailer. The sites were clean and as level as can be expected. There was a picnic table and fire ring. The sites were free of leaves and other debris. All remaining leaves from the sites were blown into the surrounding areas. Everything was neat and clean on the grounds. The resort was very nice overall. The people working there could not have been more friendly. They had a big bonfire Saturday night, put out supplies to make smores, and had one of those chocolate fountains going. It was very nice of them to put that together for the campers. This is a family campground. There were lots of kids running around. And lots of dogs. So some barking was expected. We have a kid and a dog, so we fit in well there. They seemed to be strict about the quiet time from 10 PM to 8 AM, and with the speed limit of 5 mph around the campground. They also have a hard shutdown of midnight for all campfires. There were staff cruising around the grounds all the time, which is a good thing. Any of the seasonal sites were kept up very well. There were no old junk trailers at this campground. They have a bunch of nature trails surrounding the campground. And there is a small fishing pond on the property, plus small lake or bog right next to the property. They have a very nice little campground store with reasonable prices, and good firewood for sale. The roads going around the campground were all pressed gravel and well maintained. It was easy getting in an out of there. I only have a few constructive things to say. First, the bathrooms were clean, but they were very utilitarian. Blow dryers, and no paper towels. They were nice enough, but not warm and comfortable. Also, there was no dog park there. We like to have a place to let the dog loose to burn off some energy. And there were small recycling containers around, but no recycling dumpster where you take you garbage. They should add that. Overall this is a really nice campground with nice people. We had a good time there. We would stay here again.
We stayed at the Niagara Falls KOA as a test to see if we liked the campground lifestyle. We were shopping for a Travel Trailer, and used this as one final test before we made the big purchase. We stayed there in one of their Kamping Kabins for five days. Well, we bought our TT two weeks later, and love it! The KOA in Niagara Falls Ontario is a wonderful place. It is spacious, clean, and loaded with activities. They have two outdoor pools, and indoor pool, and two indoor hot tubs. They have a couple of play areas for the kids, a game room, and this big jumping pillow, which was the a huge hit with all the children. There were scheduled activities for the kids, which was great too. The bath houses were clean and well appointed. The showers were especially nice. There is an inexpensive shuttle bus (WeGo) that stops out front of the KOA, that takes you right into the tourist areas. It was less expensive than parking in town. We love Niagara Falls, and now we love the KOA there too. We can't wait to go back there with our own RV.
We visited the Elizabethtown/Hershey KOA last weekend because it was close to the PA Renaissance Faire. Some of the previous reviews said the staff was rude and unfriendly. This could not have been further from the truth. Everyone on the staff was very friendly, and very helpful. Even staff members mentioned by name in prior reviews were there and friendly toward us. The campsite was clean and well appointed. The gravel sites were a decent size, and the hookup worked well. They were not completely level, but level enough that I didnt need any leveling blocks. The wifi was very spotty, but I was there for a relaxing weekend, so it was not an issue. If I were to stay there for a longer period of time, then spotty wifi would be a bigger problem for me. The bath houses were clean, but could use updating. It was a really nice wooded campground, and we had some very nice walks through the area. The camp is very pet friendly, with a nice dog park area, and lots of dogs walking around all day. The Catch-and-Release fishing pond was a big hit with the kids of all ages. There were lots of bass in there. It was a nice place. I would go there again next year when we hit the Ren Faire.
