Mountain Pines Campground (formerly Mountain Pines RV Resort), Champion, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

From the directions off the turnpike to driving in you will like this place! The sign off the road was very easy to spot. The first impression WELL MANICURED, WELL MAINTAINED! The office is right at the front gate super easy! The site we reserved had to be switched due to a last minute 400 tent campers. The lady who checked us in checked us in and got into her golf cart to show us our new possible site. Nice site (the lanes were a bit tight for a 32 ft trailer). She helped us back in like a pro! Site was great! Side to side was dead nuts on and we just had to level front to back. This place is I would say 80% seasonal sites. Personally I like that there is not a huge turnover of campers. The seasonal camper owners I talked to said they stayed there several years. The campers put HUGE effort and pride to make their sites look amazing. The staff.....AWESOME! We tried to melt our camper cord at the post. I went to the office and they sent the electrician. Maybe 10 minutes passed and I went to the RV store 10 minutes away. By the time I got back he inspected and reset the circuit I tripped, now that's service! ENORMOUS I think is how to describe the outside pool! Inside pool could be a bit better lit but our kids had a blast. A lifeguard was on duty both nights we were there. The bingo was PACKED! It is a real sense of community there. People have fun cruising the campground in their golf carts. I would, am going back! We camped at Mountain Pines Campground (formerly Mountain Pines RV Resort) in a Travel Trailer.

Hemlock Hideaway, James Creek, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: May, 2006 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

The campground was nice. The manager was as nice as can be. I forgot my cable wire and he had one and gave to me for TV hookup. Hemlock Hideaway is mainly seasonal camping and the CG is on a side of a mountain. Steep roads but tons of trees and you don't feel on top of anybody. Lots of space between sites. They are close to the lake but no lake access. You have to go to a boat launch. The pool was nice DW and little one loved it. They were easy to get to, but the mountain to get over just have 100% confidence in your TV to get you over it. It's a biggie and straight up baby! There was a ton of stuff to do. We just had time to go to Trough State park, highly recommended if you like easy to moderate hiking. Rainbow Falls, well lets just say it is a falls, but not a big one. Balance rock was pretty cool, and the suspension bridge was ok. The hiking was great! We had a great day for hiking: nice and cool and not too long. Very pretty park. We also went to the Lake Raystown State Park. The next big town is Saxton which is about a half hour away from the CG. My main complaint is that both Target and Wal-Mart are in Altoona. That's about an hour away. But the drive was pretty and we didn't mind. We camped at Hemlock Hideaway in a Travel Trailer.
