This is a very small State Park. It's very quiet and that's nice when you want to enjoy nature. And that's all you have here is nature, but don't get me wrong we like it. They have nice walking trails that meander around the small lake. I'm not sure kids would find this park very exciting there is no swimming, but I did see basketball courts and a very small playground. You can fish in the lake so that's nice for kids. So, it's not a park with tons to do, but the beauty makes up for that.
I loved this State Park! Nice big sites that are extremely clean, very private with large trees and bushes to block the view of your neighbor. We had site 138 and thought it was a great site. The loop we were in was pretty close to the beach so it was a short bike ride. The beach was clean and not crowded. We were only here overnight but would love to go back and stay longer.
When we arrived the attendant didn't even check to see if we really had reservations. We didn't get a window or post permit (we didn't know that one was already on the post) - I guess they trust everyone. This was a strange feeling campground. When we drove in people looked at us as if we had two heads. There were two cars parked in our spot when we arrived - had to wait for them to move before we could park. People set up camp where ever they wanted and made fires without rings. Strange very strange. The pool is a community pool (you have to pay to swim) and it's a little drive away from the campground. No camp store, so don't forget anything it's a drive to find a store. I don't want to complain any longer, this campground just wasn't for us.
We had a site on the stream and it would had been extremely nice if they weren't so small and packed together. The owner is very nice and helpful and campground itself is beautiful! They don't have activities for kids or a pool, but they do have a stream and frog pond. We had our granddaughter with us. She met a couple of children and they spent hours exploring the frog pond and the stream. She did not want to leave and wanted to take some frogs with us. Overall a nice place to stay.
I thought this State Park was very clean and probably one of the nicest parks that we have stayed in. We had site 71 which had a beautiful view of the lake, was very private with large shade trees for screening between neighbors and right next to the swimming beach. The beach was clean with nice white sand. We did have a hard time finding the campground, we had to go to the park office to get directions. I didn't use the restrooms or take a peek at them so I can't say how they were. I do know this was a great State Park: we really liked it and want to go back.
What everyone else said: a great park for activities and lots of them. We had site 75: it was large, wooded and private. I needed reservations for the 4th of July, they were booked but said they would put me on a waiting list. I thought I would never in a million years get a call back, but to my surprise they called when someone canceled. Now that was good service. They do have a shuttle to downtown Charleston and Folly Beach, but it only leaves once a day. We used a taxi, it wasn't anymore expensive than the shuttle and they pick you up at your site. We are awful with schedules and this way you can come and go when it suits your schedule. Overall this park was very clean except the bathrooms they were a huge mess when I looked in to check them out. We would probably stay here again if ever in the area. Just a very pleasant campground.
This is a very small State Park Campground. They only have 6 electric sites. They have water for tents but not with a hose hookup so you can fill your water tank. Not good. They only have one shower and it's a sun shower (you have to get the water bags from the camp host for $1.00). This place is great for tents and pop ups. Sites 19-27 and 49-55 are away from the road, very private, quiet and beautifully wooded. These are for tents, no electric. Pioneer Village and the picnic area are near the creek and very very pretty, just a small drive from the campground.
This campground was alright for one night. It had a very pretty lake for swimming, but was a drive not a walk from the campground. We stayed at site E14, which was in a non-pet loop. Someone had a pittbull a few sites down which ticked me off. They have two or three other loops for pets. Oh, E14 was shaded and very private. The restrooms were standard prison type restrooms. Stainless sinks, toilets and really dark creepy showers. Glad I didn't have to use them. One more note, if you like the sound of jets sounding like they are going to land right next to your motorhome then this is the place for you. This campground is on the flight path for the Pittsburgh airport.
First the positive, beautiful park with nice sized sites. Some are wooded and some are not they have pictures on their website. Good bike trail and the lake is good for fishing, paddles boats and canoes. The bad, this park is extremely busy if you like that sort of thing. Very noisy, cars are always coming and going, kids galore and they constantly walk or ride through campsites. No peace for the weary here. If you go, try to get a site on the outside of the loop so people don't walk through your site and don't pick site 50 like we did. Also, this park isn't in the greatest neighborhood. I couldn't give it a really low number just because it wasn't our taste. Everyone else here seemed to like it, just way to crazy for us.
I wasn't feeling it here. The other posters seemed to enjoy this campground much more than I did. I thought the sites offered little privacy. Yes, they seemed spacious, but not much screening in between sites. Not a lot of trees or shrubs. The lake was yucky, geese droppings everywhere! The pool was large and clean, but it was a pool, nothing special. That same dog another poster complained about, must still live next door. It barked from midnight to one and started about 5:00 am in the morning again. I'm glad we were here only overnight. It's an okay stop if you are traveling down I-75 for a overnight stay, it's very close to the highway.
This campground was absolutely beautiful. Totally wooded and very scenic. Nice large sites, very private and quiet. You can pick your own site, which we love. The restrooms were clean and well maintained. If you like KOAs this is not your type of campground. If you like nature and peaceful beauty, this is it! Yes, the roads are narrow, but who cares when it's this nice. The campground and restrooms have no trash cans: I read that they want to keep the park as beautiful as possible. The trash containers are at the Park Center. I would love to go back, one day was not enough.
As a previous reviewer stated this is a very popular park. I tried to get reservations on line, but they only let you reserve two nights on the weekend. I only needed Saturday night. But, we took a chance and drove to the park and they did have some sites for one night. They don't let you drive through the park to look at the sites, but do have a nice book that has pictures of the sites. We had site 152 at first, which is right on the river, but when we got to the site it was so tight and right on top of the neighbors, which I hate. That loop also has tons of sites really packed together and it was noisy. We moved to site 68 which was quite private, quiet and pretty, good move. The full hookups sites are huge and very spacious. The majority of the sites (not all) in my opinion are close together and not very private. Oh, also the park has sites 1-16 that they save for walk in people. The river and pool look like the big attractions. The park is paved so bike riding is good and there is a paved bike path that goes into town.
Overall our stay was really nice. We had a back-in water/electric site (90) that was very private and wooded, but not level at all. If you are looking for a private site that is very nice with full hookups choose site 80. The lake/pond is nice for fishing, no swimming. The activities for the kids are well planned out: crafts, scavenger hunts, buried treasure hunt, movie night, fire truck rides to name a few. The pool was clean and a decent size. They have three showers for the women and they were clean, but we didn't use them so it didn't matter. Everything was great we had a good time but, this is why I gave a 8 and not a 10. The rate is only for two people, we had two children with us and had to pay $5.00 per day for each child. Okay, that's fine but you have to pay for the crafts and the game room. I haven't stayed at many KOA's so maybe this is the norm, but I just thought I would mention the extra fees.
This campground was very scenic. The sites were open, spacious and grassy with a few trees scattered about. The views from the sites were beautiful with meadows and rolling hills as a backdrop. They had a lake for fishing, hiking trails and paved roads for bike riding. I did see two sites that were wooded and private if you enjoy total privacy. We enjoyed this campground because it was quiet and peaceful. The campground was clean and well taken care of.
This was our maiden trip with our new motorhome. We were on our way to Maine and stopped here for one night. I thought wow kind of expensive for one night. The site was very nice, it was back in the woods so it was shady and they had a trash can for every site. The bike path was fantastic, it was scenic and you could ride for days. Since we were only here overnight we didn't get to do any of the other fun things that the campground had to offer.
We stayed in this campground for one night on our way to the Penn State - Ohio State game. I chose this park based on other reviews, but I have to say I don't agree with some points. Yes, the staff was very nice and helpful. The showers are dated, but very clean. However, the campground itself is, how do I say, junky looking. There are a large number of seasonal campers that have tons of stuff around their campsites. It really makes the campground look terrible. I thought the sites were small and offered no privacy.
