Been there but haven't stayed there, YET. One of these days. Go to the Pa State park website and check out Locust Lake. Map of campground has most of your answers.
From the Pa State park website...
Camping: flush toilets, warm showers, some electric hook-ups
The 282 campsites are divided into tent or trailer sites that encircle the lake. Tenting is permitted on the north side of the lake and the trailer facilities are on the south side of the lake. All areas are within easy access to swimming, boating, fishing and hiking.
All campsites are in a wooded area and have a parking pad, picnic table, fire ring and a cleared area for camping equipment. There are also a number of walk-in sites. Pets are permitted on designated sites.
Campground conveniences include modern restrooms and washhouses with shower facilities. A sanitary dump station is on the trailer side of the lake. Trash/recycling areas are on the north and south sides of the lake.
There are three play areas within the campgrounds. Two playgrounds are in the trailer loops and one is on the tent side of the lake. Playground equipment is designed for a variety of age groups.

There was a good show about RVing on and the host that was on it has posted on here before. I can't remember the name of the show right off the top of my head right now, but there are episodes of it online. But they are old ones and not new ones. I think Marcus needs to get another one going.
You MUST be talking about RV Today with Stew Oleson. If you google RV Today, Stew Oleson, Road Stew, or go to Youtube and search for the above, you will find lots of show segments, even newer ones.
IMHO, there will never be another RV oriented show like RV Today.
I am pricing tires now. I am being told it will be around $1600 for six. What brand do you all use? This will be my second set. I am told there is an "RV Tire" that has reenforced walls etc. Anyone know about those?
I don't know what my husband had put on the Class-C. He's sleeping and I have no idea where the receipt is. We got 7 tires as we also needed a spare.
Don't be so sure that you were "taken" on your RV purchase. These toys can be expensive in upkeep.....I knew that going in.
Have fun and don't sweat the small stuff
I know this is going to be a real rant but - how could we not have been taken when he lied to us and so skillfully hid so many problems? We paid $7,200 for this 28' Class-C and just put another $2,900+ into it. We've already put several hundred into it last fall for rubber roofing paint and Eternabond etc and yet every time we drive it around a bit, the leak is right back. All the shades, run up when we bought it, turned out to be broken, dirty and need restringing or replacing. It's several hundred to replace them so I made curtains = $50 for material. It's adding up way more than we can really afford. We just spent another $50 on those things that hold the cabinet doors open and some other items we needed. It was several hundred to replace all 5 vents and add a MaxiFan with cover. They were all cracked and leaking. What about the ruined awning? We had to replace that also. A few more hundred. In adding this all up, including replacing one entire wall and the front at the cab... we're in for a good $16,000 and now it appears the roof is rotted out for the last 8' of the RV. How in God's good name did he hide leak stains? There were none on the ceiling - NONE anywhere. And the 11 yr old tires were turned around to the good sides and he told me they were "fairly new." Yes, they had plenty of thread and did look new but were 11 yrs old and cracked and split. That was hidden by the good side of the inner tires swapped around.
We must have been nuts to believe anything this man told us. Every word was a lie or an exaggeration. Apparently the original owner put 45,000 miles on this Class-C, parked it 10 yrs ago after putting new tires on it, and never did any maintenance of any kind. It sat somewhere for years until this flipper on Criagslist bought it and sold it to us. Oh, and the genny that started right up at the seller's house never did again once we got the RV home. I can't imagine what that's going to cost to fix.
This kind of expense may be "small stuff" to some people but this is a lot of money for us. We're both retired. We get no pensions and have no portfolio, no other income other than SS and our savings for old age. The money we had for the cross-country trip, the reason we bought a Class-C in the first place, is being all eaten up with these repairs.
Rant over, thanks for listening.........
I feel your pain, sort of. When we bought our first TT, it looked great. It was a bit more expensive than what we wanted to pay, but we bought it. That was in fall. A few days after we brought home, I found rotted ceilings, even the framing. I spent the winter rebuilding it. New roof, trusses, etc. Througout the next camping season, seems I was fixing things between every trip. Not minor stuff. Things like where my foot went through the floor. Non of this stuff was visible.
But when we traded it in, we got lots more than what we paid for it. Enjoy it, fix it right, make money on it, enjoy a newer unit.
Good luck, and happy camping.
Hmm - wonder what happened? We like it there.
Simple, and this is from Twin Grove management.
The owner has several other campgrounds that are not KOA and are doing very well. He feels that Twin Grove has established itself enough to break away from KOA. To add, Twin Grove was already a KOA when he purchased it. Still a great place to camp.
Lake Glory has large sites, and a nice lake for fishing. It also has full hookups and a shuttle to the park. Definitely Lake Glory.
As far as Knoebels, it's great. Gets very crowded on weekends, though. Plenty of rides and entertainment for kids and adults.
Well it looks like we are working on finalizing our decisions.... Aiming to go to the Gettysburg KOA for a few days .. and then a toss up..
between ... Country Acres / Country Haven / Beacon Hill / Philadelphia west chester KOA ....
I have read reviews on all... some complain about rude owners, some smell of cows... some near highway... head is spinning..but I want a bit of each of them... love the views of Country Haven ... but the KOA seems like it's good too... oh boy.. must focus and pick one !!! Thank you for all help and suggestions .. if you have any more.. pros / cons for the aboves ones.. shout them out to me.. thanks
Smell of cows...in Lancaster area....that's a good sign if you ask me.
High ceilings. I know Sunseeker has higher ceilings, there may be a few others.
And I guess I should have read the other posts before I started typing. Looks like you found the Sunseeker ceiling heights.
Lake in Wood was just bought, as mentioned. The previous owner just recently passed away. The same management team will be running the place, and from what I've seen, the upgrades look great.
For scenic view, I don't think you could beat Starlite. And since you are visiting the area and not just Lancaster, it's at a good location.
Sill's is small, but very well run and the owner's are very friendly. About 25 minutes from intercourse.
We just purchased a new Equinox and I need some ideas. If you tow an Equinox, can you please post some pictures of the front end? Particularly where and how the light wiring plug is and also, if you use Brake Buddy, where the emergency disconnect is. Thanx
