This cg USED to be "LICKDALE", now joined the KOA. And the "original" KOA is now a private "Jonestown Campground" located a few miles away. This became a KOA around April 2013, some of the "Lickdale" signage within the cg is still here. Half updated, still a work in progress. Staff is friendly and professional. Good 50 AMP, good water and 25 "cable" stations. Good on-site store/restaurant and they will bring dinner to your site. The roads need improving, drive slow, lots of ruts. Sites are level. No pool, but one can swim(?) and canoe in the stream that runs alongside. Typical of KOA, a "easy on/easy off" an interstate (I-81). Some long term sites. Will visit again.
Initially we had a small problem finding the park. Either I misread the on-line map or it really was backwards. Anyway. QUIET! Absolutely the quietest park we've ever been to. Some kids around, but no noise. Amazing. Clean, well maintained. Both the staff and the seasonals. were very friendly. An older park, built on a hillside. Yes, the roads inside the CG are kind of narrow, but we had no problem. We HAD problems with leveling, had to ask for a site change, (no problem) but all worked out OK. Electric (50AMP) was OK, water was OK and cable had 74 channels! Nice pool, too. We only stayed 2 days, but will be back. Hopefully next summer for a month. We liked it that much.
Yep: $75/night, but it was NASCAR weekend, and EVERYTHING, EVERYWHERE was inflated. So. Since last year, the entrance is being re-designed and re-built. Larger, wider. The place is still being expanded with more sites, etc. Still clean and well run. Noticed a whole new staff: smiles, friendly, informative and knowledgeable. Wi-Fi is better than dial-up but not broadband. One day REALLY fast, next day, not so much, but OK. New TV system, more stations and good picture. Like most places, some sites are not quite level. The one we were on (A-125), had to get out the yellow blocks under the tires for one side. Site is big, but IMO just a bit too close to your neighbor, but no problem. ONLY problem is that the neighbors sewer hookup is less than 2 feet from the edge (and center) of my patio. Been coming here since the 1980s. Will be back next year too.
First time here. Nice park, neat, clean, my Verizon AirCard got FOUR power bars: never had that before. Might not be Memorial Day Weekend yet, but the store was seriously lacking in what we came to expect: no milk, stuff like that. Their bags of ice were incredibly small and incredibly overpriced (in our opinions). The staff although very professional, almost never smiled. But again, our opinion. Good park: would return.
$76/night for their best "Premium" sites. Large, spacious, and we saw maintenance people almost all the time: from security to sweepers to insect control. Our car never moved for 6 days. Took the buses and monorails everywhere. Their cable TV was a curious mix: networks, cable stations, at least 5 Disney channels (OK, their system), Spanish, Japanese, Chinese and English with subtitles. Guess they want to include everybody. Very expensive, but it's DISNEYWORLD!
Arrived yesterday afternoon. Park says they have their own gas station. Yes they do, but I was glad I got gas at the Shell Station earlier. This cg gas station was getting new pumps! Has a strange entrance, fronted by a convenience store and the gas station. But once in, all was well. Clean, neat, had excellent cable TV and good 50AMP power. Good place.
Campground is seemingly built on a mountainside. Not one to walk around, unless you're a hiker or climber. We drove around. Nice place, well kept. Some sites were almost perfect level, others not so much. We had to bring out the yellow plastic squares for the tires for our site. No biggie as we've done that many times before. Part of camping. The staff was VERY friendly. Campground is clean and apparently well run. Only complaint was the electricity seemed kind of old. We had two "brownouts," but then the temperatures were in the 90's. Pool was very nice. I'd return.
First time here in 2 years. It was the same. Some mud: but had been days of rain before our arrival. Nice people, good sites, and this new KOA "points system" gave us 10 bucks off the printed rate. The bathrooms were dated but clean. Very clean, as a matter of fact. Only problem was the cable TV: picture not that great. Otherwise, as always a good overnight place. The temperature at night did get down to 22 degrees, but I guess someone will blame the campground for that.
Just finished up 4 consecutive weekends. Not the first time, and won't be the last. First class all the way. Including the pricing.:) Rain every weekend...but that is not the campgrounds' fault. The staff is friendly and helpful. We had friends in another part of the campground, in a "rental" park model, but they had no cable TV. Wiring not even there! That's surprising. These units cost a lot more (to rent) than an RV site. Go figure.
Been camping here every October for years (15?) "Off-season," reserve 2 or more consecutive weekends, leave RV on site all week, no charge. Large, flat, excellent sites (upper level, at least). Kind of on the expensive side, but lots to do, especailly during the Halloween time. Kids (grandkids) have great times. Fall foliage, farmers' markets and flea markets. Staff friendly, good store but I wonder if (due to suburbia marching up nearby hills) they might be pricing themselves out of business. For instance, 50 bucks a night, 65 during "holiday" weekends, and 4 grand, plus electric for "seasonal." Hope not. We like it.
I rated this campground a 7 because they don't have cable TV and they surely don't have enough sewer sites. The honey wagon does a thriving business. OK. Typical "Pine Barrens" campground, lots of sand. But: clean and well run. Atlantic City is about 1/2 hour away, but is only min's from Long Beach Island, and other "Jersey Shore" beaches. Great place for the kids and/or grandkids. ATVs' welcome, with certain restrictions. Will return. Nice place.
"Nightly rate" based on "monthly". Not the newest place on the block, but totally acceptable. 2nd "snowbird" visit. Neat, clean, well run, LOTS of activities. Staff is very friendly, any complaints are taken care of almost immediately. Wonderful people, too. Made us feel quite at home. Convenient location to Mesa and Phoenix, hope to winter here again, if I'm lucky.
NASCAR race weekend: prices are always increased. We've been at this KOA every year since the mid 1980s and watched it grow. Growing maybe too much, in my opinion, but it's clean, neat, well run, no complaints. Owners are responsive and very friendly. First class all around.
