Terry -

Thanks for the input on the Mercer KOA. Several of the Pond Piggies will be there for their free night weekend in May. It's good to know it's a good KOA. We'll especially appreciate the Amish selling their goods at the campground. That was one of our favorite perks at Whispering Hills that we miss now that they don't do that there anymore. We'll get our pastry fix at Mercer this year.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Lori,
Keep us posted on the pastry situation at the Mercer KOA. We are going to be there twice this year. Five days in August and another five in September. We plan on making a dent in their pastry supply.

Bill,
That KOA would be nice for being close to the outlets if you decide you have some extra cash and are looking for a place to spend it!!
Clothes are tax free in Pa.

The KOA seems to fit our needs. I spent a bunch more time last night looking at other campgrounds in the area.

Can anyone give me advise on the following

Farma Travel Trailer Park in Greenville PA,
Shangri-la in Jamestown PA,
RosePoint Park in Portersville PA


From the websites they all seem to be fine but I don't trust websites

Bill-

Dave & I have been to RosePoint Park. It's a decent campground, but nothing special about it. Grassy, small to medium sites that don't drain well & puddle if it's raining. The KOA sounds better based on other member's opinions.

Check out Shenango Recreation Area. It is run by the US Army Corps of Engineers and is north of Sharon, PA. You can reserve sites at www.reserveamerica.com I recommend COE parks. Level, big lots, good prices, quiet, swimming, hiking, etc.

I also recommend you check out www.pacamping.com. Select region 1. I have stayed at Rose Point. It's okay. Close to McConnell's Mills State Park. Good hiking, old fashioned grist mill at the bottom of the gorge. Bear Creek is beyond Rose Point (422W to 79S. Portersville Exit. This park abuts Moraine State Park. Swimming, hiking and boating. Large number of perm's, but they are seperate from overnighters. Avoid Cooper's Lake. Use to be family oriented and is now more about events.

Maybe I'll see you out that way this summer. I'm originally from Ellwood City, PA and used to visit Y'town and Boardman often. Still have family there and try to get back once per year.

Happy Camping

Thanks for the information. A COE or state park would be fine except with little kids we would really like a campground with planned activities. Also, a POOL is a must (2 people going with us have lake phobias)

I was told by other people that Rose Point has small sites but lots of planned activities. If that is the case I think that I am going to go there since the KOA is around $20 more per night.

Thanks everyone. Any last opinions are appreciated. I will make sure to post where we ended up and how it was late in the summer after we get back.
