Nice setting with a beautiful lake and walking path, but it needs to be maintained better! The bathrooms, showers and laundry facilities are so-so: especially the laundry facilities. They were never clean during our 2 month stay and pretty gross to use. The campsites are never cleaned after campers depart. I even spent time picking up litter after a storm: just because I didn't want to look at the mess! There's a restaurant/sports bar on site, but it has a very limited menu. Gravel roads and lots are often muddy after rain. We had a terrible time getting level: more so than anywhere else in 9 years of camping. Staff is pretty much hands off and it's a family run business. The best part about this park if their annual Halloween Party and haunted hayride. Well done and lots of fun. Maybe it's better in the summer, but we needed a short term (2 month) place to stay near Columbus and this was the most convenient spot.

We stayed on a full hook up site in section D and there are 12 available. Everything else is electric only. The park was clean and well kept. The front office gate and camp store were both closed while we were here because of shortened fall hours, although several camper hosts were seen throughout the park. Check the schedule if you think you may need supplies and are not towing a car. We were able to get some local television stations with clear reception. There is an ice cream shop across the street from the park. There are plenty of places to ride your bike within the park, but the lake bike path is about 2 miles from the park and can only be accessed via busy country roads. We would return to this campground!

We were very happy with this campground! The bathrooms were clean, campground hosts were on duty and often visible and it was very quiet at night. There were also rangers passing through on a regular basis. Although we had to "level" at our site, it was clean and had a nice fire ring and plenty of space, no trash from previous guests. There is a laundry facility available and a well stocked camp store with hospitable clerks. Granted, this is not a 5 star resort. We have stayed in several of those which lack charm and don't really give you the true camping experience. Still, we would gladly return. Our son goes to school at Miami U. which is only 15 minutes from the campground so this was convenient. There is a Wal-Mart about 8 miles away. Although we did not take advantage of the lodge pool since it closed on Labor Day, we saw it and noticed it was spotless. The roads are narrow, but not hard to navigate. We camped here in a 39 footer and had no problems. Also, we were able to get several Cincinnati television stations.

This is a great campground. We stayed here four years ago and it was nice then, but several improvements have since been made. Nice, grassy sites and they are level. There is a lake for kids with electric boats that shoot out water, a beautiful putt putt golf course, fishing lake, rental bikes and activities too numerous to mention. Also, a cute cafe with great ice cream and many food selections and snacks. The store is well stocked and the pool is clean and has an adult swim from 9a-10a. People were catching fish in the catch and release pond. The owners are constantly working on the grounds and keep the place clean! The camping cabins are cute, too. We talked to some "seasonal" campers who had nothing but good things to say about the place. There is a large, two area fenced in dog playground that is also well maintained. We will return! The rate reflects our KOA discount, but this is worth the few extra dollars you pay. WiFi is free every 10 hours for one hour usage or $2.50 for a 24 hour period. There is also trash pick up twice daily: a nice touch!

We just camped here for an overnight, so we did not use the pool or laundry, but the store and office area were very clean and the store had a nice selection of items. WI-FI did not work at our site, nor did it work at the office. There is a nice pond and we rented a row boat for five dollars for a two hour period and caught some large mouth bass. Everything was reserved in the full hook up area, so we chose a site next to the lake with water and electric. I was never able to get completely level, but it was all right for one night. There are quite a few "seasonal" residents and a few unsightly campers right at the entrance. The office staff was pleasant.

This is a very nice, clean park. Every person we met was friendly and kind. The front desk workers were helpful too! They do have an "age" limit on Class A coaches. I believe it is a ten year age limit. We arrived to our site and were unable to connect our systems as the sprinkler system was turned on and spraying in the hook up area. There are three different community centers/showers. Nice fitness equipment, a library and several games are available. There is also a large, enclosed "dog park" which is great! There is a two dog "limit" at this resort. WiFi worked well! The only downside, there was no store and no bike paths to ride into town. We did not tow on this trip, so we felt a bit isolated. This is a very adult oriented park. We saw no children throughout our two day stay. The pool was immaculate, although we were unable to use it due to the stormy weather . We have stayed in other RV resorts and I think this one felt more like staying in someones nice "backyard" as opposed to camping, but we did enjoy it.

This was a wonderful park close to downtown Ludington. We rode our bikes to town and found some fun shops, including a vintage book store! Our site was right across from the fenced in dog run area and next to their older bath house which was immaculate. We chose a concrete pad, but all sites have a concrete patio area. The grounds are well maintained, the park is family owned and operated and it is "clean, clean, clean." There are two outdoor pools and one is reserved for adults. It was without a doubt one of the cleanest pools I've seen. We didn't use the indoor pool, but it also looked well kept. Although I don't usually use the laundry facilities at campgrounds, I would have felt comfortable using this one. The camp store is small, but there is a Walgreens right across the road and a Wal-Mart a few miles away. WiFi worked great, but the only negative was the $4.95 per day fee to use it. With so many campgrounds now offering free WiFi, I dislike to be charged for it. There is also a nice pond, but only children under 17 years old are allowed to fish in it. My husband would have liked to throw in a line and was a little disappointed with that policy. All in all, a great place to stay!

Very nice campground and the bathrooms and laundry room are immaculate! There's also a fenced in pet walk area which was well cared for and convenient. Although we didn't use the "catch and release" fishing ponds, they looked inviting. Check in was easy and the staff was pleasant. The camp store was cozy and well stocked. We had no issues at all getting into the park around the 180 degree turn. We will return again for an overnight stay! There were a few different activities around town that we would have visited, but didn't have time for on this particular trip. The glass factory tour and a car museum are both free. In addition, the campground is located just 4 miles from the largest mall in West Virginia.

We used this for an overnight stay and enjoyed the close proximity of John's Place (bar and grill) right next to the park. We were able to watch the NCAA games and enjoy a pizza! John's is a small, clean bar with good finger food and several large screen televisions. The registration desk is located inside the gas station, but the check in process was easy and the staff was welcoming. We were escorted to our site. Also, we appreciated the fenced dog walk area. There was a large laundry room, but I decided not to use it. I'm picky about my laundry facilities! Easy on and off from 77 N. We would use this park again for an overnight stay!

Beautiful park and very quiet. We really enjoyed our stay. All sites are pavement sites, but the beach is a short walk away. We enjoyed the pretty sunsets in the evening! A great restaurant nearby is the Ottawa Beach Inn. There was a lot of road construction in the area and we had to follow a detour to the campground. Some of the roads were fairly narrow. We took our dogs to the local dog park which was only a few miles down the road. Since pets are not allowed on the beach, it was nice to have a place where we could take them for a special treat. We would definitely stay here again!

We had a full hook up site in a shady part of the campground.We were not able to pick up local television stations although the Wi-Fi worked well. The park could use some updating. There is a tennis court, playground and other amenities, but everything seems rundown. Nobody was available at check in when we arrived at 3 PM, but I called the office number and was told to pick out a site and then return to the office later in the day and let them know the one we chose. The staff seemed friendly. The towns of St. Joseph and Coloma are very nice and there is a lot to see in the area. Although this would not be my first choice, I would stay here again for an overnight. Expect a lot of road noise and train traffic throughout the night.

The park is in a pretty area. There are some nice restaurants close by and good fishing on the pier. Registration was a cluster. Be prepared for a long process. We made reservations online, but were only given a "type" of site , not an actual one. Once we arrived, we were told to drive around and then let them know which site number we picked. There was an additional $8 charge for our tow car as we were non-residents. There is a small, sandy area designated as a "dog walk", but pets are not allowed on the beach and there were very few places to walk them except for the pavement. We had a few neighbors across from us staying in tents. That would have been alright, but they placed multiple tents on their site and were not polite campers. Although their behavior was not the fault of the campground, they should have been asked to move to the section exclusively for tent camping.

The campground owners are extremely kind and accommodating. Some of the nicest ones we've met! In fact, they went out of their way to help us. We had major electrical problems with our coach and the owner helped us regain temporary use of our generator. They even provided an ice chest for us to use when our refrigerator failed to operate. The pool was clean and nice and the shower house is older, but clean. There is a camp store, laundry facility and WiFi access. We were in the back part of the campground and had to go to the office for access, but it worked fine there. This park is within easy access to 40-E and very quiet. We would stay here again!

We have been coming to this campground since 2003, but this was probably our last visit. This price reflects our KOA Value discount.While we never mind paying a premium price if we feel it's justified,in this case, it was not. The park was not fully functional, yet we were charged their premium rates. Although it was their first "open" weekend, they were not ready for customers. There was no cable (apparently, they switched companies and it had not been turned on yet). The camp store was full of unopened boxes, picnic tables had not yet been placed at sites,one bath house was not yet open,etc. There are some positives. They have moved their dog run to the rear of the park and although it's not nearly as large as before, it is nice to have a fenced in area, so that is a plus. There's a new putt putt golf course which has an extra fee attached. Maybe the price is reasonable if you have children who can use all the "extras." There are a lot of run down seasonals stored around the perimeter of the park and a run down mobile home park is visible on one side. The other plus is the restaurant next door, called Pizza Cottage. It is, without a doubt, the best pizza around! We had a pull through site and didn't want to detach our tow car, but couldn't hook up to our sewer without first detaching the car. All sites are gravel and fairly level. Having stayed at several other KOA's in Ohio as well as throughout the Southeast, this one seems quite overpriced for what you get. Wi-Fi is a plus as it works well, but it requires a code from the camp office so be sure and ask for it when you register.

This campground is a nice stop between the Carolinas and Ohio. A previous post mentions taking exit 16. However, don't do that because a bridge is out. You need to take exit 119,then 21 south. It is about 5.5 miles. The roads are narrow and winding so it would be best to drive in during daylight. The campground is immaculate. As others have mentioned, there is a large area of permanent campers, but the area is well kept and the full site hook ups and overnight area is very nice. The restrooms were very clean, too. I would rate it higher if the access was easier. Also, the camp store had very limited supplies. Easy check in by a very kind lady who lives right across from the office. We would stay here again.

We loved this park and had one of the perimeter sites which was well landscaped and convenient to everything. There are very clean laundry facilities, well maintained tennis courts, a fitness room, swimming pool and a community room with a large screen television. Everyone we met was friendly and we were given our choice of sites. The park is easy to find and our check in process was quick. You need to disconnect your tow car at the gate, but there is ample room to do so. There are many nice beaches and restaurants in the area and a Publix grocery store about one mile away. It is very clean and quiet and very dog friendly!

We have stayed at this campground on at least 4 different stops and have never been disappointed. The place is immaculate! There is a clean laundry room, pool, restrooms, great WIFI and good pull through sites. The staff is friendly and the store is well stocked. It's perfect for an overnight stay. There are two good dog walk areas and pretty views abound. Also, we love the easy access to the highway and Flying J! This is a good halfway point from Ohio to North or South Carolina!

This is a wonderful campground that sits next to a beautiful beach! When we arrived, there was a kind man standing outside who directed us to our site. The camp store is well stocked and has a friendly staff who is happy to answer all questions regarding the park area, directions to area restaurants,etc. The restrooms are clean, although not fancy. Several people were fishing in the ocean and there is also a volleyball net on the beach at the campground. We will visit again!

The office, laundry and camp store appeared clean and organized. We had a quick check in, but were disappointed with the sites and common areas. The gravel pad was not level, nor was it clean. There was trash from previous campers and there are some permanent renters at the park who don't keep things tidy. There is a large area to walk dogs. It just seems to need some TLC. Our site was very muddy as it had rained and we had to walk through puddles all around our bus. We thought it was overpriced and would probably not stay here again.

We had a site right on Lake Murray and the views were wonderful! Getting into our spot was rather tough. The spaces have narrow lots and there are a lot of trees. We have a 37 foot coach and it took two people to help us in, but it was worth it.We enjoyed watching the sunrise over the water as we had our morning coffee and fishing from our site. There was a big fishing tournament the weekend we stayed here so the park was busy.We found the park to be relaxing. Although there is only electric and water, the dump station is conveniently located to the exit. If we are ever back in the area, we will visit again.

This was probably the most beautiful site we've ever had! We were right on the lake and had a wonderful, large lot. Several large trees provide shade and there is a large gravel area with a cement picnic table and enough room to park a car. It is wonderful to wake up in the morning, have a cup of coffee and watch a blue heron swoop down in the water as the sun rises. We stayed here the last two days of their season. The check in people were very friendly and the campground is close to several area attractions, including The Hermitage which is only a 15 minute drive!

We were very pleased with this park. It is well maintained and the check in people were friendly! Even though it was late in the season, we enjoyed the beautiful surroundings. There is a nice beach, although it was closed for the year. Our full hook up site was shaded. There is good fishing in the area and marinas where you can rent boats. The camp store was not well stocked, but there are several grocery stores and restaurants in the towns nearby. We will stay here again!

Very well maintained and clean park. There is a small fenced dog run, nice fishing lake and sites are level. We enjoyed the hiking trails and a buffet breakfast which they serve on the weekends. The owners are very nice and helpful. Athough the pool was closed for the season, it was well kept and large. There is a new cafe where you can buy ice cream, pizza and a few baked good products. We have stayed at several KOA parks and this was one of the nicest ones! We will stay here again.

Very disappointed with this campground. The check in process took a long time and employees were rude and disorganized. Our site was dirty when we arrived. There are only two laundry facilities throughout the whole campground. The one located near us had 4 washing machines and they were all out of order. I reported this to management and was told, "what's there is there." Also, the wifi didn't work from our site. The campground itself is close to downtown Gettysburg and is pretty with two nice pools, but it is poorly managed. Out site was not too difficult to level, but we would not stay here again.

This park was wonderful for our overnight stay! When we first drove in, we thought it looked a little sterile because of the lack of mature trees. However, the management was extremely friendly and helpful! The camp store had plenty of groceries and RV supplies. The restrooms were immaculate and there were three dog run areas that were beautiful and well maintained. With two dogs, this was our favorite amenity!. The one we used had a small creek running through it and the grass was well mowed as it was throughout the campground! This was also a very quiet campground with pretty views. They had cement picnic tables and benches at the sites and we had no problems getting level. Despite a night of rain, our site was not messy, nor flooded. We did not use the pool, but it looked clean and nice! We would for sure stay here again as we were very impressed. For some reason, this campground is not listed in the AAA camp book. Lucky for us, we discovered it via this site!

The campground is scenic and the sites are fairly level. The staff was friendly, but the camp store had very few supplies and wasn't really organized or very clean. Although they are open year round, perhaps it's still early in the main season and that was why. We weren't in need of supplies so that aspect didn't bother us. We had to move sites due to an electrical issue. We basically had no power at our site. We asked to be moved to another site where the electric worked for a little while only and we actually left a day early as we didn't want to run off our generator constantly. The campground does not give refunds for any reason by the way! We assumed it was something wrong with our RV until we got home and discovered everything worked fine...just as it had before we left home! Obviously, they were having problems with their electric.The town of Lebanon is very nice with many good restaurants, stores and much to see and do in the area! We would not stay here again after our experience and because some of the "locals" told us Caesar Creek Park is nearby and very nice!

We really enjoyed this campground although we only stayed one night in our motorhome. The staff was friendly. The owner even helped us fix our cable wiring when we couldn't get it working. We utilized the pool which offers an "adult" swim and it was very relaxing and the pool is clean and well maintained. There is also a jacuzzi in the pool area. We fished in the stocked lake which has a gazebo area and lots of green space. There is a nice little restaurant/ice cream shop offering snacks, sandwiches and deserts! Some of the sites have wooden swings and cement areas as well. We stayed in the newer section. Our site was level.

Of all the KOA and private campgrounds, this is BY FAR my favorite. The grounds are very clean and well landscaped, the staff is friendly and the camp store is fully stocked, clean and organized. There was a special Mexican dinner one night and breakfasts both weekend mornings. The laundry room was immaculate and everything in the park is conveniently located. We travel with our dogs and enjoyed walking them on the paved walkways and roads with plenty of green areas. This park is close to great restaurants and shopping! We will be back here for sure! We camped in a motorhome and had room for our awning and a nice level site with a grassy area! A total class operation! Restrooms are also clean!

Although this park is open all year, we stayed at the end of their summer "tourist" season and we were the only campers at the upper full hook-up sites. There are "executive" sites that overlook the water, but they were going to charge us an extra $15 per night for these sites so we declined as we were already paying $40 per night for a full hook up site. The campground has a lot of "seasonal" campers, but these were not real close to us which was good as some were pretty run down. In our area, there was no shower house. The camp store was at least a mile from our site so we went there via car just to buy a few needed items. We didn't find the staff friendly, but we had very limited contact with them so this may have been why. Maybe because we were the only campers in our area, our trash was not picked up for 2 of the three days we stayed here. Needless to say, we had a lot of peace and quiet. Our site was fairly level and the grass was mowed and the area was in pretty good shape. There are many nice shops in the area as well as several good restaurants. We didn't utilize the pool, but it looked nice and is also right next to the lake.

This campground is very overpriced and very "run down". Our site was not even close to being level despite using our levelers and when we complained and requested a different site, we were told "no". It was also a mudhole. The park is packed with seasonal people who seem to "rule the roost". There are golfcarts everywhere making it impossible for a safe walk around the park. Teenagers "cruise" the narrow roadways and play rap music constantly and loudly. Our first night, our seasonal "neighbors" partied until 1:30am. We tried to contact security, but only received a voicemail. The bar/restaurant is dirty and the store has very few supplies. We were so disappointed with the whole place that we paid for three nights, but left disgusted after staying only two! We will never go back!
