I found the campgrounds to be very nice and well cared for. The staff were all great! They went out of their way to help. The one fault is in the WIFI hook up. Most of the time I couldn't hook up and when I did finally get on I was knocked off. This is the same prob. at other KOA sites I've stayed at. The system is 15 years behind the time and needs updating. I just use it for e-mail.

Our stay was absolutely amazing with beautiful views if the river. We continue to return to this place. Our 6th or 7th time. Exceeds expectations each time.

We had a great time. The staff where friendly and helpfu! The only downside was that we couldn't stay longer! We will be visiting again later this year to see the leaves changing and have decided to choose this KOA again !

Concrete pad sites need to be blown off prior to arrival. Prices are on the high side and golf cart rentals could be lower.

It was great. The people were very nice and the cabin was great. The only problem was that the bathroom floor and shower were not very clean. I had to clean them again before we used them. There was hair on the floor and you could see a ring around the lower shower wall. Other than that it was great.

All of ourstays have all been good. The campground is finally turning back around to being a family campground.

The fire pit was on the other side of another cabin. Will not be staying in any of those cabins again. Am currently looking for another campground.

Great way to spend mother's day. Was a little concerned about staying here after previous season because of staff and campground. But glad we did!

Enjoyed the friendly service and smiling faces. Camp ground was relaxing and kids enjoyed all the fun things for them to do.

Having stayed in many campgrounds in the northeast from Pa. to Maine this is the finest run facility and well maintained I have ever had the pleasure to stay at. I rented a cabin and the stay was perfect: William P. Dunn IV

Wonderful staff. Amazing location. Do NOT listen to your GPS going in, get directions from the KOA desk.
May 16, 2015
Beautiful area. Stayed in a cottage, small but good for two people. Had ants by the kitchen sink and the screen door was broken. Had to always keep the front door closed because of it. Light switch in the bathroom was not working properly either. Pool was nice. Workers were friendly. Overall average stay compared to my other stays at KOA campgrounds.

River sites are my favorite, and this KOA is very friendly and try to make your trip the best.
May 13, 2015
The facilities are among the best in which we've ever camped, and the staff is always friendly, professional, and well trained.
May 13, 2015
Campground was clean/neat-wonderful. Staff was friendly and helpful-wonderful. Cabin was adorable-came with everything. Only suggestions; upgrade bed as broken down and upgrade TV as poor pic/quality-can only be seen sitting in chair at table-from bed is distorted. Would def recommend and stay again! Can't wait!!!
May 12, 2015
Well when we got there. Our sewer was stopped up. And the next day only running the air and an electric skillet in the afternoon and the breaker outside would trip. Other than that had a great time.

We had some friends drop by for a short 2 hr visit and they were charged $25.00 for their visit?!? That's "gouging" in our book & we're Not pleased about that occurrence!
May 12, 2015
This place was absolutely amazing. We expected a simple campground but this was so much more. The rustic cabin we stayed in was clean and perfect for the hubby and I traveling with our dog. The showers and bathrooms were clean at all hours of the day. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We had originally planned to stay one night but we enjoyed it so much we stayed an extra night.
May 12, 2015
The outdoor pool was not open, although it was 80+ degrees. On Sunday, which was Mother's Day, the indoor pool was closed for unexpected cleaning ALL Day! I understand unforeseen circumstances, but I was promised a phone call as soon as the pool was reopened. Needless to say, I am still waiting. We have stayed at many KOA's and have never experienced such disconcern for customer satisfaction.
May 12, 2015
We had a wonderful time camping Mother's day weekend! The staff were helpful and friendly. We can't wait to come again and share our experiences with more of the family.
May 11, 2015
Everything was great with this campground, although; the water pressure could have been a lot better in our cabin.
May 11, 2015
We have been coming to this KOA for the past 8 years and it just keeps getting better. We always have an outstanding time. The team their does a great job and seeing so many of the same employees really makes it a pleasure. They remember me and my family and it is truly a fun experience. They do a great job there and the campground is more like a dude ranch/hotel atmosphere
May 11, 2015
Great staff
May 11, 2015
AC went out in cabin and had ants inside. Priced to high for what it is.
May 11, 2015
We had a great weekend !!!!
May 11, 2015
Staff was friendly and camping was great! Kids loved it! The indoor pool was extremely busy and the water smelled like urine and was cloudy so we decided to use the river for the kids to play in and got fussed at because of the entry was in front of a log cabin at the corner of the campground. This was the only entry accessible for little ones. Other than that we had a great time!
May 11, 2015
I was not happy that our cabin did not have anything as the cabin we had last year . We rented to same type and came with less this year. No fridge no tv no table and chairs inside and many more items it did not have. The picture on website showed different than the cabin i got located on the river. We will never reserve online anymore only call.
May 11, 2015
We had a great time. Will do it again.

Don't stay in cabin 251. The cabin is on a beautiful spot on the river. Unfortunately, it is the public access to all KOA campers. We counted 84 people walking thru our camp site in one afternoon, not to mention the 8 golf carts that pulled right up to our porch. We complained because of no privacy. They said sorry, nothing they could do. Do not stay in cabin K251!
May 11, 2015
We enjoyed our stay but was disappointed that the pool was closed most of the day on 5/10.
May 11, 2015
We were told on the phone that if our dog was a small breed there would be no charge and when we checked in there was a surprise $15 dollar charge. I also had my children over at the bathhouse in the rear of the campground when the worker (female blond) began cussing and complaining about her job over the laundry and cleaning the restrooms loud enough for my small children to hear.
