Not your typical KOA where the main building contains office, store, bathrooms and showers. This campground appears to be an older one that has been converted to a KOA. Most sites including the one I had were very small. The electric & water were shared on one post for three side-by-side sites. My electric cord barely reached and ran through my neighbor's site. Very friendly staff, tons of activities for kids, and appears to be very family oriented. Of course we were just looking for a place to sleep for a couple of nights while attending the Fall Festival bicycle weekend, thus all the CG activities were of no advantage.

Camped while attending the free weekend Bluegrass Festival in the park. Campground is typical of PA state parks, but a bit hilly. Most sites are wooded but none are pull-through. Shower houses are clean basic cement block buildings, no frills. The park is large with a very nice lake and beach area, a free family type movie every Saturday night at the amphitheater which also has a snack bar. Many park activities and programs are available for kids and adults, including hiking, mountain biking, kayaking and geocaching. Will definitely camp here again.

Older family style wooded campground, friendly staff, and many pull through sites with concrete pads. The water connection was in a small pit and the valve/connection was covered with soil. Only two showers and two toilets in the bathhouse, but we were there during the week and the campground was not crowded. Being just an overnight stop for us the campground was entirely suitable. Conveniently located close to the Blue Ridge Parkway, it appears to have a lot of family related activities on the weekends. We would stay here again if in the area.

This was one of the nicest campgrounds at which we have stayed. Clean shaded sites with concrete pads and a very clean and attractive bathhouse with real doors on the private stalls for both the shower and toilet. Site spacing is a bit compact but typical for an RV-park and this makes the park more suitable for a hard wall RV than a canvas popup. Conveniently located we definitely would stay here again.

Campground is definitely setup for big rigs, however, there are no paved pads. The Wi-Fi was intermittent and the bathhouse/toilet was clean but very small. If you are using your own self-contained facilities the park is fine, but for my small travel trailer I would expect much better bathhouse facilities for $60/night. I stayed 3 nights but would look for another campground if returning with my small rig.

Very busy campground with lots of activities for kids. Many locals come here to camp for the weekend, etc. Many sites are close and not level but the staff was very friendly and accommodating in moving us to a more suitable site. Restrooms generally clean but could be updated. Showers were clean and are both inside restroom and some with private doors to the outside. Being seniors we would prefer a quieter campground, although the nearby train didn't bother me.

Well maintained cg with very friendly and helpful staff. Bathroom/shower generally clean but could use updating. Great fishing stream adjacent to several sites that attract many locals. All paved sites are available but we camped in an unpaved but level site. Would stay at this cg again.

Relatively small cg but quiet, clean with level sites and friendly staff. Trolley stop at entrance will transport you to all major area attractions. Dollar store next door convenient for supplies. Would stay there again if in the area.

Stayed overnight only. Friendly staff, clean bathrooms/showers, and was quiet. Large wooded campground, roads gravel, sites generally level, some with concrete pads. Nearby truck stop had lowest gas prices we encountered on our trip. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Camped at Folly Point which is a peninsula on Bantam Lake. Very attractive area with lots of nature and biking trails plus great fishing. Campground sites have no hookups and has pit toilets that were adequate and clean, as was the entire camping area. There is a camp store nearby but it's only open on weekends early in the season. Camp road is rather rough and very narrow, so I would hesitate to bring a large rig here. (Ours was a small 16 ft trailer). We would camp here again (hopefully next time will be warmer and less windy).

It is a large campground with a lot of seasonal sites. Everyone was friendly; staff and seasonal people. It is probably a great campground for families but we just wanted a quiet place to overnight and relax. Sites are close together, level, but just gravel or dirt (sand). For the services we took advantage of, it was way overpriced, but then we are old fogies. It rained the day we left and the mosquitoes were horrendous. We will look for other campgrounds next time we are in the area.

Finally, the entrance road has been repaved and you no longer have to dodge potholes. There are nice wooded sites, well separated affording some privacy. Many sites have been improved by leveling with gravel. The bathroom/showers were generally clean but could use some updating. Camping with pets is limited to specific portion of the campground. This is a very scenic area and a great economical place to use as your base for exploring the many outdoor experiences. The park swimming pool is a couple of miles from the campground. The crystal clear Clarion River runs through the park and is great for tubing or canoeing. There is poor ATT cell service. I've been here many times and is one of my favorite camping areas.

Nice clean campground with choice of sites, wooded or open field. Many sites are large and afford relative privacy. Bathrooms were clean but unheated with individual private showers (free) accessible from the outside. There are many well kept seasonal sites and the staff and regulars were friendly. The access road is mostly paved but bumpy, so go very slow. Cable TV is free at all sites. We have camped here off and on for many years and expect to return.

This was our first time staying in a camping cabin (chose not to tow the TT from PA). We had a single room cabin with a double and bunk bed, a TV w/cable, AC, ceramic heater, small table, and 2 rocking chairs on the porch. We liked both the cabin and campground very much. The staff was friendly, the roads are paved, and all facilities very clean. There are many well maintained permanent trailers in this park but it appears the RV sites are tight and require some maneuvering for the larger rigs. The campground is conveniently located near the State Park which has a large beach area on Lake Michigan. We enjoyed our stay here while attending the Tulip Festival in Holland.

Campground is mostly on a hillside with narrow and very rough roads. The sites are very close together with most sites having long term permanent trailers, some with strange decor. Appears to be a place families come to escape the city and let the kids run, but it appeared to me they just traded one form of congestion for another. We stayed two nights since just visiting the area, but if returning to the area we would look for a different cg.

Steep gravel road to campsites. Showers not well designed for convenience and privacy (Definitely not KOA standards). Swimming facilities not on site but close by. Campground setting is attractive, large sites, and well maintained. There are many permanent setups indicating a lot of folks like the place. If I return to the area I probably would opt for another campground.

Closest campground to historic area - Sites are very close together. Only 2 shower stalls for the whole campground. It was 90 degrees and swimming pool was closed for repairs. There are train tracks on one side of the campground where the tent sites are located and a lot of trains go by. The trains did not seriously disturb me in my rv but I would not wanted to be in one of the tents 20 yards from the tracks.

Very well maintained campground. No swimming pool but you can buy a daily activity pass for $12 (good for 4 people) that permits you to use the swimming pool at the lodge plus bicycles, water bikes and paddle boats, canoes, and kayaks. Not an inexpensive place but a great vacation spot.

A good overnight place to stay. Inexpensive, but no frills, however, there is a large shopping area about 4 miles north. Bath/shower house was older but clean. Located on the hill above the coal mine exibition and museum (being renovated when I was there). Would stay there again if visting the Beckley area.
