We went here with friends and were pleasantly surprised. Lots of seasonals, but clean and well maintained. Bathrooms were spotless. Lots of activities for kids, quiet at night, plenty of room at our site. Gravel under our camper with concrete pad under our awning. Dumpsters are hard to get to and dump station is impossible to access. - Katiegirl91

Very nice park, sites were clean and roomy, shower and bath house very undated with tile throughout. Only had 3 comodes in men's and womans had 4, showers were very nice but you never knew if you were going to have a warm or cold shower, pressure poor. Had to lput the shower handle to get them to work. Most of our trip the showers were barely warm. The play area and pool were nice and large. The Hot tub just warm at best. But we would stay here again. Got Satellite signal okay. - snoopy216

Bay Shore was a decent campground. The playground is older, but we liked the concrete pads on each site. They charge extra for air conditioning which we never even used but oh well. Some our family members really love Bayshore but we thought it wasn't anything special. - Ilove2camp

We have stayed in the PA side for years and decided to try the Ohio park. The problem we had is that all the driveways are extremely short. This forces everyone to park their vehicles across their campsites, but they hang into the street and onto the grass between campsites. There were just cars everywhere. When you tried to maneuver to get an rv into or out of your site, you had to worry about the person across from you being parked in the road. When everyone tries to leave on Sunday at checkout time, you can't get out because there are vehicles in the road trying to hook up to campers. The sign when you enter says no parking off roadways/drives. This is clearly not enforced because it can't be. I even saw a large pontoon boat brazenly parked in the grass in someone's site. We were there after a rain and the grass in most sites was torn up from people driving on it. Our site was a swamp (079) and had huge tire ruts in it. We couldn't really even use it as a camping site, due to the mud, so we spent most of our time over by the lake. I'd avoid the sites near the cattails. We booked online and didn't know we were booking in a swamp, but this shouldn't even be a camping site. We did see other flooded sites so be careful if it has been a wet summer. There are some nicer sites in section 3. Most problems are due to the sites being far too short to accommodate a moderately sized camper and the tow vehicle. Otherwise, it's a nice park (if you avoid the dismal swamp area) but this problem with cars all over the roads will keep us from coming back. We have traveled and used state parks in more than a dozen states, and this is the first time we've seen this driveway length/parking problem. - April1996

Excellent park - beautiful views of Pymatuning Lake, a private boat launch for the fishermen, nice playground for the kids. The campground beach was small, but it was adequate. We stayed in site 155, a nice site. The only downside was that site was full sun, but ReserveAmerica says it's "partially shaded". When I looked at the Google Earth picture for that site, there were trees there, but they've done some logging. Some sites wouldn't be that great for campers, as they don't have a great amount of room off the right side, and others have slopes, but they're pretty accurately listed. Nice, mostly flat roads, great for bike riding. My 5 year old son actually learned to ride a two wheeled bike here. It was a great camping experience, and we booked sites again to go back in a few weeks. Very pet friendly. - brian19889

It's a nice park but a bit crowded, although the sites are decent size there really is no separation from your neighbors. Nice having a boat ramp right in the campground. There is a small beach although we did not use it the kids enjoyed it. We would consider staying there again. There is a pair of nesting eagles yearly in one part of the campground and they shut that part off during the raising of the eaglets. They were pretty close to being fledglings, we were in the kayaks and you can see them and the nest from the water. Site was off level front to back by probably 10" over the wheel base of our 30' motorhome. - knightab

This campground can be described as "rustic". 95% of the sites were occupied by long term residents and not well maintained. The staff was pleasant and helpful but the facility left a bit to be desired. There was not perimeter fencing so we were open to anyone driving by. The sites were grass with some gravel. There were new 50A pedestals but the were no circuit breakers on the pedestal. I was very nervous about disconnecting 50A in the rain with no circuit breaker. Fortunately an electrician appeared working on the park and shut everything off so that problem went away. We were less than comfortable in terms of feeling secure. No evidence...just a feeling. There were no problems and we departed next AM but we would probably not stay there again. - captaincakes

This is a very nice campground that is close to Pymatuning State Park. It is quiet with great owners. They almost always have availability. - RVCamperCowboy

We are TRA members [Travel Resorts of America] and have been coming here for over 4 yrs now. It's definitely getting better but still has a long way to go. The sites really need to get gravel put down or something. When it's been raining we just pray that we can get out without a tow truck. Make sure you ask which side the hookups are on! Some of them you need extra long lines for. The pool is nice, a little small but serves the purpose. The kids activities seem to be fun, I wish more adults would sign up for the adult activities so they wouldn't be cancelled all the time. We have our "favorite" sites but lately seems those are always reserved by KOA people, which isn't supposed to be happening. TRA is supposed to have first choice on sites. Overall we enjoy this campground. We really enjoyed the Pig Roast a couple years ago, that had to be the best yet! - Karen and Bill

Wifi was not to good. Hook-ups are not set up for a motorhome - very confusing which hook-ups are yours. There are not enough for all sites. Dog park is not small dog friendly - big gaps around the gates. Close to Pymatuning Lake. We will be back. - deangrimmett

This resort is now part of the KOA system and is found as Andover/Pymatuning Lake KOA on their site. While the Pymatuning Adventure Resort sign still remains it is dwarfed by the new KOA signage and other markings. As other reviews have mentioned there were once far more amenities at the resort (water park, two pools, tennis, etc.). Most of these have been removed and what remains is very basic. The outdoor pool is rather small and situated poorly on the property. All of the buildings and facilities have a very worn out and "has been" feel to them. Our biggest complaint is however the absolutely horrible condition of the roads and sites. In fact, "sites" is a generous term. Each spot is really just a path worn into the grass with some very sparse remnants of gravel. The streets are extremely narrow - just barely wide enough for two passenger vehicles to pass one another. The driveways into the sites are shockingly slim and are bordered by 8-12" deep drainage ditches on both sides. Our site was shamefully unlevel. It took all of the pads, blocks and other leveling equipment we could muster to get even close to level. As there is no real support underneath there was also significant settling over the course of our two day stay. Others have mentioned that the power pedestals and water connections are shared between four sites. We had more than a 35' reach to get to power and water. Thankfully we consulted this site before arriving and had spare water hose and electrical cable aboard. Without these we would have been unable to connect. While we hope that the new relationship with KOA will help improve the conditions at this park, it will likely take significant time and large sums of money to bring this tired, too long neglected park back up to some reasonable standard of comfort and accessibility. We sadly cannot recommend it and would very strongly suggest you consider staying elsewhere. - reofinadv

This is an immaculate park. Very quiet. Most people come here to fish in Pymatuning Lake. Owners live here. There are a little under 200 sites, which are mostly large with cement pads and picnic tables. Gravel parking and hard packed gravel. Beautiful trees and small lake. Playground. Office is staffed all week over the summer. There are several pull thrus for short term stays. A shower house is adjacent to theses sites. Lots of trees on many sites. We love this campground.
Bring your fishing pole and your boat. Many sites are big enough for you to park your boat at your site. - Bon68

This is one of the nicest campgrounds we have stayed at. There are a lot of seasonal campers but everything is so well kept. Everything was well groomed and clean, we loved walking the campground and seeing the landscaping of the seasonal sites. The staff was very helpful and kind. We will definitely stay here again. - PWMC58

This campground is mostly seasonal but all the sites are very nicely maintained. One of the nicest seasonal campgrounds that we have seen. They have about 5 pull thru sites that they use for short term stays. Everything was clean and well groomed. We visited friends in the local area so didn't really use too much the campground had to offer. Owners live on site and were very friendly and helpful. We had plenty of room. - D&K

This was our first trip in our RV. The owners greeted us upon our arrival and escorted us to our site. Staff stayed with us until we were level and hooked up to the water and electric. There was heavy rain the day we arrived to the point that there was local flooding in some areas. We were still able to walk around the grounds without too much difficulty, athough some sites were waterlogged. Bath houses could use updating. Pool was clean and clear but weather prevented us from using it. Only complaint was a camper came in and reversed parked in the pull through site next to us with their door facing ours. The camp ground could have moved them over a site or two but put them next to us. Prior to departure a honey truck service was provided to empty our tanks. Owners were very friendly and helpful. There were a large amount of seasonal sites at this campground. - dpgllg

This park has major water issues. Everywhere you walked (let alone drive) was a marsh. We were told first come first serve, picked a site, got set up, then told we had to move that someone else requested that site. Roads are narrow and sites only have gravel enough for under camper. Tried another site and was so narrow and wet our truck and camper sank and nearly got stuck. They have low power lines at back of sites (which are also not long enough for most 5th wheels). Indoor pool is nice, but no restrooms anywhere. Lake is very nice. Joined as coast to coast, nothing but lies. Sites are very close together. Just upgraded electric so it is actually usable now, but they charge an additional fee per night now. Terrible campground! - Djesky

If I had not read the reviews I would not have known how to get in the gate. The lady who checked us in was nice but seemed to be in a hurry it was 2 pm... she rushed through signing us in. We had to ask where we were to go and if there was anything going on. She never gave us a code to get back in if we left and the office wasn't open the next day. They also close pool on Tuesday's...ridiculous!! You can't get to anything on Tuesday...nothing! Can't get into fitness area to workout. Now the good...electric was new and good, hookups were good. Site was nice. The park itself was very clean. We would come back again. - DebT

Rate reflects Coast to Coast plus friend rate. Check-in was delayed because electric gate was down and no one was in the guard house. Another camper behind me came up to tell me that I had to press a button to get an answer. Once in, the check-in at the office was easy.
We were directed to the camping area that is advertised as pull-through. It is pull-through only if there is not another camper on the other end of your site. It is "first come, first serve" and many campers had taken too much space, so that limited the options on which sites were actually usable. Available sites were back-in, so unhooking the toad was mandatory.
Our neighbors at the site informed us that another motor home had pulled into the site and left after a short time. We soon learned why. Hooking up to the water was an ordeal because the wooden support for the hose bibs had rotted off at ground level so that left the outlet hose as the only support for four outlets. The 30 amp service was not usable. Measured voltage was only 103 volts at the pedestal. Attempting to change the refrigerator from gas to electric reduced the voltage in the motorhome to 85 volts. Clearly, the attempted use for the AC unit would probably damage the unit.
Complaints to management resulted in them reassigning us to a different section of the campground, with the caveat being that they couldn't promise anything. We inspected the newly assigned sites and they were normal household 20 amp receptacles. Before moving the unit, I measured the voltage which was only 104 Volts.
It was clear that staying at this campground was not a viable option, given the temperature and the need to use our normal appliances without risking damage to them.
This campground was well kept for the permanent residents. The section for others was anything but that. The grass needed mowing and the water and electric service was abysmal.
We left and will never visit this campground again. - Lakewood90

Pymatuning state park in PA has two campgrounds - Jamestown and Linesville. There is also an Ohio state park campground on the Ohio side of the lake. Linesville is the smaller of the two PA campgrounds. Jamestown sites were good sized and not too close together. There was a lot of mud due to rain, but it looked like mud is likely a problem normally. The non-electric sites were typically the muddiest. Jamestown camp host rec Linesville 200 if going there. - kanling

We make at least 4 weekend trips to the Jamestown Campground of Pymatuning Lake in Northwestern Pennsylvania, Route 322, Jamestown, PA 16134. It is one of, if not the largest state owned campgrounds in Pennsylvania with 330 sites. Many sites with full hookups are available and over half of the sites have electricity. We find it to be well kept, clean, and quiet. They have one entire loop for pet owners. Since we do not bring our pets, we don't have to listen to incessant barking. The beach is clean and maintained for swimming. There is also a new playground facility for the kids. We enjoy walking on the paved roads, speaking to other guests, and always a late afternoon walk to the camp store for a delicious ice cream treat before starting our evening campfire. - Have Camper-Will Travel

We stay there for 3 month in the summer. Just Love it there. VERY quiet in the week. But like most camp ground people do not come until the weekend. - MikeNtina
