We stayed at the Scenic Hills campground for 3 nights. The first night was on the level near the office. While those sites are roomy, with easy access, we found the lack of privacy and the dust factor not to our liking. We asked for the upper level staying in site #32; a nice level site backing up to the edge of the hill. Wi-fi was spotty at this site. Note: if you walk to the green space that borders the road coming up to that level, the Wi-Fi is excellent. The water pressure and electric were good. While the lower level looks nice, we prefer the upper level, but that's subjective. Overall, we really liked this campground. It is close to Berlin, and walking distance to Troyer's Market. We plan to return to Scenic Hills often. It is the best campground in the area.

Very clean and well maintained campground with nice/helpful staff. Our site #508 was level (504 looked good, too). Some sites were shady, but we opted for a no trees pull-through. Having said that, by mid to late afternoon the VERY nice concrete pad with nice picnic table was in the shade. The neighbors are quiet as there is a cemetery next door. :-) Our only issue was the distance to town. The staff member said if we cut through the cemetery it was only 'a couple of blocks' to town. It was more like 6-8 city blocks which is a good 15-20 min walk. We did not realize until later that dogs are not allowed in the cemetery which meant trekking around it, adding considerable time to our walk. Note: ask in any shop in town for a business map of the area. It shows shops/restaurants, etc. We were not aware of this until the day we left. Maybe there was one in the campground store, but we suspect not based on the info we were given at check-in. All in all, we would go back to lovely Lebanon and would stay in Cedarbrook again.

We stayed in this lovely campground for five nights (site #35). We did not feel the sites were narrow compared to most campgrounds we've visited. The owner was extremely helpful about things to see/do in the area. We so enjoyed watching the Amish farmer across the road. Yes, you will smell farm smells, but that was not a biggie for us. There is a wonderful gift shop at the end of the campground. Don't miss seeing the Mascot Roller Mill and home tour (both free) in Ronks. It's right down the road from the campground. The Bird In Hand bake shop is out in the country a bit, but WELL worth the few miles to get there. We have now decided to revisit Intercourse and the Amish area next year in part due to the wonderful experience we had at Beacon Hill. There are many campgrounds in the area, but Beacon Hill is the best for price, location, and atmosphere. You can walk into town (perhaps 1/2 mile?), and it is a slight uphill walk. Very do-able. You will have to dodge the occasional horse poo along the way. :-) We've stayed in some really poor campgrounds with our travels. It was a pleasure to stay in a good one!

This campground is heavily wooded with narrow roads that might be an issue for larger motorhomes. We stayed in a pull-through site right up near the front of the campground which made for easy in/out. The beach and lake are at the far end of the CG where it appears a good many long time seasonal sites are occupied. We were not interested in the lake activities, but can see where families would enjoy what the CG has to offer.

As with previous posters we're rating this CG a 10 for location, as well as the superior staff. They were very friendly and helpful with information about the wineries, things to see/do, etc. The convenience of the lake/shops/town all within walking distance was great. The sites were level, but not overly spacious and/or private. VERY easy to get in/out of the sites. We stayed here 5 nights and would easily stay here again.

This small campground is in on the outskirts of the town of Archbold. It is well maintained with level sites and plenty of distance between units. Within a 5 min. walking distance you will find a charming country barn restaurant (delicious fried chicken), bakery, and large conference center/inn w/pool. The campers were allowed to use the pool/free. Sauder Village, the recreated historic village was charming. We learned a lot about the western part of our state that we did not previously know. I was surprised to read that Chicago is only 4 hours from Archbold. The turnpike was only 5 mins. from Sauder Village. While we rode through the town of Archbold (which looks very nice), we did not explore it. The area is filled with large farms. There is a walking path from the cg to the town (probably about 2 miles to the center of town as the crow flies). You can see corn and soy beans for as far as the eye can see. It was lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the campground and would easily go back. It's easy in and out with only a few small trees here/there ~ none that should pose a problem for big rigs. Our site was #20 which was electric/water. Note: If you're 30 amp, you are given an adapter when you check in at the inn.

We stayed here twice within a week going to/from Maine. It was an ok cg. The staff was friendly and security was ok (although they did not close the gate as we expected at night). We found the price we paid for NOT having full hook-up a bit steep. Our sites (109 and 110) were level and fine for our 31' MH. Big rigs would have a challenge as the turns were sharp and lots of trees. Sites as you come in on the right would work for larger MH's. On our return stay, it rained cats and dogs and the cg became a swamp in places. Many campers would find they had to step out into water. Our sites were dry. It's a decent place for a 1 night stay, but we've stayed in nicer KOA's. Having said that: we'd stay here again.

Excellent stay at this campground. It is a small, adult's only campground surrounded by wetlands. Quiet and conveniently located, we had a great experience. Big rigs may have a bit of a challenge getting into the cg, but it's do-able. The sites on the center/left as you come in are a bit tight. We stayed in site #25 with our 31'MH. It was nice and level. Site 28 would also be a good choice. We would easily stay here again.

We've camped here several times and overall it's fine for what you pay. Of course we'd like full hook up, but it is what it is ... a nice cg with level sites (esp. on the right of the cg as you come in)and a few sites with trees. Within 10 mins. of the cg is Reston Center with a Harris Teeter grocery store, shopping, (including Home Depot) and restaurants. Great location and good access to DC. We stayed most recently in sites 115 and 119 (119 is longer) but 115 had a tree. The area is heavily wooded, but the cg is not. Staff was friendly and helpful if we asked for directions, etc. Lots of 'kid friendly' things to do if you're into that. We will stay here again. NOTE: they are strict about only ONE car at each site. We appreciate that.

This is a great home base campground for touring the Ohio Amish Country. Very nice staff and lovely grounds. Some of the sites are not super level but if you ask for a corner site (#15 looked good), you should be fine. We stayed in #23, but would ask for #24 which is longer, or one of the corner sites the next time. We did have a fire pit issue with our next door neighbor. They moved their fire pit to within 4 feet of the front of our motorhome and stoked it with wood (some of it wet) from 9 am until 10 pm. It was really unpleasant for us at times but thankfully we were gone most of the day. The staff offered to say something but we asked them not to. Since the folks were leaving the next day we opted to be neighborly and let it go. For those of you who do use fire pits, please think about how it may impact your neighbors. We look forward to coming back to this campground next Spring. Book early if you come as they're often full.

CG is easy to find, staff was nice, and site was fairly level with easy hookups. We stayed in site A12. As other posters have mentioned there is the noise from the train (which does not bother us), but there is also a small horse farm at the other end of the cg and an old cemetery just 2 rows back up on the hill from our site. All in all though, it's fine for a 1 night stay and we'd easily stay here again.

Very friendly staff although it seemed odd to find the KOA office inside a gas station. Our first site was not level and we asked to be moved. That was done with no problem. It's fine for a 'one day/passing through' kind of stay, but VERY pricey for what you get!

This is an excellent campground! We could not have been more pleased with our nice level site (up front/same side as the office) and how clean and well-maintained the campground was. It is an easy 10+.

While we liked the fact this campground was within walking distance of the Christmas Shop, the campground and our site was simply 'ok.' It was fine for an overnight, but we'd not stay longer. There seems to be a big discrepancy in the sites.

This was a great campground. Our site (#67/ across from the water) was very easy in/out and level. It may not be the best site for a long motor home or fifth wheel, but it was perfect for us. We really liked being able to choose our own site! Since we were near the office, our wifi worked fine. Cable was good as well. As others have mentioned, they have a very friendly staff. We'd easily stay at this resort again.

We would rate this a 10, but our cable was out one night (seemed to be an entire campground problem). There was no one to fix it. Our site #128 was a long, level pull through. It was next to the picnic pavilion and trash dumpsters. While it was not a problem while we were there I could see if a party was going on, it could have been. We'd stay there again, but would ask for a different site.

Outstanding campground! It's one of the nicest RV resorts we've been to in a long time. It was first class from start to finish. The owner was very friendly and anxious to please. Our site was level and spacious. We were told the WiFi was spotty, but ours worked just fine. Cable was great, too. While the town itself is less than exciting, it was an overall nice stay for us. We'd go back again should we find ourselves in the area. You can't go wrong with this campground.

We stayed here because it's the closest CG to where my son lives. It's at the back of the park and dark as pitch at night. A tad dusty. Wish we'd had full hook up, too. Otherwise, it was ok for a night or two. We would stay there again, but would check out the sites before going to the office as many are not very level.

This CG did not come close to the description in the travel guide! Sites were nothing more than muddy/grass. There were school buses coming/going for the semi permanent resident's children and dust would fly. We were super tight to our neighbor and CG was poorly maintained. We opted to leave early, losing a night's cost in the process. Worth it to us to move on down the road. We learned a great lesson with this trip (our maiden voyage). Check out CG's BEFORE paying for 3 nights. If we reserve, we start with one night and work up. Lesson learned the hard way.

Slim pickings with CG's in Tybee, so we were stuck. Wish we'd opted to stay at Hilton Head and traveled to/from Savannah. Sites were not level, too many trees that dropped stuff all night long and SUPER tight to your neighbors. Would not go back.

Easy access for a one night stay at this CG. Site was ok, fairly level and clean. Would stop here again passing through.

VERY nice CG, but noise level from planes a little annoying. I know the prices for super sites will be going up for high season, so that may keep us from going back. The super sites have lots of room, level concrete and great picnic table. This CG rates high on our list for places to go.

This is a 'no return' CG for us. Site was not level, hook up was very inconveniently located, and there was litter at the site. There are a number of seasonal (semi-permanent) rv's that were not well maintained. With no cable and/or wi-fi, we were happy to leave early.

This was ok for a one night stop. Easy access to the highway, but not a great deal of road noise. Wi-fi at the office with one local channel on TV. Sites were clean and fairly level. Dusty with the dry gravel though.

This CG was WAAAAY too large for our taste. I'm sure it's great for families with children, but the noise factor from SO many kids was not pleasant for us. Yes, this was close to Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse, but there are others in the area. We saw one or two we'd try next time.

Easy access to this CG. Very friendly staff. Enjoyed the ice cream social especially since it was really, really hot. Beautiful flowers around the office. Clean laundry room. Would easily stay there again.

Lovely campground with nice concrete pads and landscaped sites. Plenty of room for even the really big rigs, with beautiful views of the mountains. It's about 4 miles to Breckenridge which is nice for shopping and dining. We would easily stay here again. The only negative is the staff. Not terribly friendly and a little disorganized.

This was a DUSTY, WINDY campground. Site was VERY unlevel. Cute gift shop which I saw more than once as wi-fi was at the office. Would not go back next time. Would try the West side of Glacier instead.

We can't say enough about this CG! A WOW factor from the minute we drove up. Registration was efficiently done by a friendly staff. Site was level and clean. Ample room between sites made putting our awning up a breeze. After 4 days, we hated to move on knowing we probably would not find a CG that would come close to this one. You can't go wrong with the Grizzly.

Decent for a one nighter. Gravel and heat made a VERY dusty/hot stay. Looks more like an old movie outdoor movie theater turned into a CG. Friendly staff and clean area with easy access to highway.

This CG was fine for staying overnight while passing through. We had super storms there the night we stayed. With all the trees it was a little concerning. Otherwise, we found it an easy in/out, close to the highway CG. Friendly staff. Wi-fi at the site which was nice.

Although all the concrete made for a hot stay (the weather was REALLY hot), it was a nice cg. Having a restaurant close by was great. Staff was friendly and the area was clean. The noise from a nearby train was a tad annoying, but overall, we were pleased. We would go there again.

We were told the campground HAS been sold to be developed for 'affordable housing' similar to what is next door to the cg. That leaves very little in Jackson for places to stay. Trees and bushes were unruly. I watched as one poor fellow caught his beautiful A class on a large limb when trying to leave popping a hole in the side of his rig. Our site was ok, but way overcrowded with shrubs. The people next to us lit a fire in their fire pit and it illuminated the side of our bedroom window until way past midnight. It was so close to our MH, and the fire so high, I thought for sure we'd have a problem. Some of these fire pits are way too close for comfort. We stayed 2 nights and opted to move on.

Very friendly staff. Short walking distance to the town of Wall (very touristy, but quaint). Level gravel sites, clean office/laundry and nice little swimming pool. Small trees provide little shade, but shade is hard to find in that area anyway. Would easily stay again while traveling through South Dakota.

This campgrounds appears to have fallen on hard times. The run down permanent trailers and rough area coming into the campgrounds made for a most unpleasant stay for us. We headed out very early the next morning.

We found this park to be just right for our needs. Nice level site with shade trees that we trimmed high so they did not interfere with coming and going. Friendly staff. We would stay there again if passing through.
