Seems like a very nice park, only downside would be the one shower house with flush toilets. Only stayed one night as we were passing through but am tempted to stay here again for a longer stay, it sounds like there are a number of water activities available for rent (kayak, sup, etc).
Spot was good for the night but it may have been different if someone was in the site next to us. Positive of being in open section is we could see the kids at the playground from our site so they could get some energy out while we set up. - TDC

Very pretty, well-maintained campground with most sites in forested area. A handful (mostly in camping area 1) have lakeside views. A few sites at the start of each camping area are in the sun. The only thing preventing a score of 10 was that for more than 230 sites total, they have just one shower house with flush toilets (and a couple of laundry machines). There are vault toilets in the camping loops (which I could smell when walking by some of them). Easy drive or bike ride (or a long walk) to the marina and, a bit beyond that, the dog park/beach (which looks really nice). Good Verizon and OTA TV signals. Two-way road throughout park and camping loops so very easy to navigate. Most sites are roomy enough for larger rigs. - aowcarol

My wife and I really enjoy this park. It does not have a lot of amenities, but it is clean with large semi-secluded camping spots cut into the forest (most of the sites are in the forest) however, there are some sites in an open area. If you want one of the more secluded sites I would avoid 1 - 4, 37 - 47, 93 - 106, and 128 - 131. The campground has 1 rather nice bathroom/showerhouse with laundry machines. The rest of the park has vault toilets which I find to be unpleasant. If you are tent camping here I would recommend a site close to the showerhouse. - GregT44266

We have a permanent site here and love it. The owners go above and beyond to provide plenty of amenities for everyone including an environment where total relaxation can be enjoyed. There is plenty to do for the kids and the adults. Kids Crafts, putt-putt golf, shuffleboard, paddle boats, fishing, swimming pond, Gaa gaa ball, tether ball, hay wagon rides, bingo, sip-n-paint, horseshoes, July 4th firework display, basketball, playgrounds, live bands, pig roasts, kids carnival, Haunted Forest, Trick-or-Treating. Wacky Golf Cart Race, Drive-in Movie Weekend. Dog park, DJ music & dancing. You won't find a better campground with these many activities and still find time to relax and enjoy nature. - Gene - Linda

Nice park in northeastern Ohio. Many full timers here, well kept sites. RV and tent sites. Park has three main areas on each side of a corps of engineers dam and lake. Free paddle boats and canoes. Short term RV's are in the first section to the right. Sites gravel, level, small wood decks. Most all pull throughs. Satellite friendly. Since the campground is on both sides of a small lake, you will need a golf cart (rent) or car to get around the park. No pool but a nice swimming lake. Very large well kept K-9 off leash area. New upgraded wifi, park wide that works. Park very quiet. Many planned activities. Mostly a weekend park. Interior roads gravel, easy to navigate. Small camp store, basic soda and munchies. Verizon and T-Mobile signals. FHU's to rear of site good. This is generally a local campground, but worth a stop if your in this area. Found staff and residents very friendly. - wtravlr1

Super friendly staff/owner. The facilities were OK basic showers and restrooms.
This park has a lot of semi permanent residents who don't keep their sites the cleanest. The person who was in my site prior left pieces of lumber, flip flop and bits of trash everywhere.
Given the fact that the owner was super friendly I would stay here again. - ETCTA

We had no problems with tight spaces, our pull through was long and wide. A very nice and friendly campground, will stay here again when in the area. - DRF

We were caught in heavy rain, which slowed us to the point that we could not make it to our planned campground. We called Hubbard and they confirmed they had large, open, level spaces for a 40' motorhome. We arrived after dark and discovered this was a campground we had been to some 10 years earlier in our new 38' MH. We got stuck, the sites were so out of level our jacks would not level us enough to open slides and branches scratched the sides of our new MH. When I recognized the campground we left in a hurry. I wish they had been truthful about the condition of their campground. We spent the night at a nearby Flying J. - we_rv

We stayed one night on our way to NY. The grounds were neat and clean. The eight pull-through sites did not have sewer. There were bees inside the electric box when we hooked up. The 30 amp electric tripped when we ran the microwave and coffee pot in the morning. There were some low hanging branches on one side of the road going out. We would not stay here again. - D&R

Traveling on the I-80 we needed an overnight spot and this was perfect. Beautifully kept large grassy park with a lake and facilities to large gatherings, spots for long-term visitors, and a large grassy field for pull through overnighters like us. Perfect. Lots of elbow room and a friendly staff. The owners are working to improve the park and decided to not sell it to developers and keep it as a park. What a good thing. The WiFi doesn't work on site but our Verizon phone worked good and satellite TV on the roof came through so we were happy. We were charged $25 but asked that if we used our AC to come back to the office and pay another $5. That was fair. We will certainly stay here again for a night or two if traveling though the area. - Bearpaw

Lovely setting and friendly host. This was an excellent, quiet setting for an overnight stay in one of their pull thrus. The water and electricity functioned properly. We enjoyed our stay. - classy

Be warned the park does not have WIFI or cable TV. Verizon HotSpot did work. Satellite TV did not work but using the Verizon, we could stream Netflix. Park is large, sites large enough, very wooded. We didn't use any other facilities so have no opinion. Park is clean and quiet. Convenient to the highway. - UllaPool

We picked this park because it had a playground and a place to swim. The playground is excellent with numerous apparatus for different age levels. The lake not so nice, the bottom is slimy and the "beach" is nothing but dirt. The campground is mostly level but the roads are very rough, The sites are gravel and uneven so water tends to sit after it rains. The wires in a few places are low, so much so, that I watched someone coming in get caught up in the wire crossing the road. The "pull thru" sites are front back ones making them a little confusing, especially the connections and which to use. Our neighbors were very noisy into the evening with their motorcycles and music, the park seems to cater to lots of seasonal and day workers. The sites are mostly treed. - HRambler

Arrived late and left early, due to tight travel plans. Lots of tall trees, very level grounds, gated. Didn't have a chance to meet staff, but they were super helpful over the phone. Tons of vintage playground equipment, a bit rough around the edges, but kids didn't mind. Swimming pond looked nice but we didn't have a chance to use. Easy pull thru sites. - GMC_STRIPES

The Shenango Rec Area is a really nice facility. They don't try to pack them in, leaving nice private spaces between the sites. They offer electric in some sites but there are no full hookups available. Trash bins are located all through the campground and all the roads are nicely paved. My only complaint: The dogs. While most dogs were well behaved and quiet, one dog, just two sites over, barked incessantly. It was making us upset to the point we were going to report the owners but we didn't. We will use this campground again. A reminder to all seniors. June 30, 2017 ends the one-time $10.00 fee for a lifetime pass to all the national parks and most federal parks. The senior pass is good for the cardholder and three others in the vehicle. Our campground site at SRA was half price! - Have Camper-Will Travel

Friendly staff, all that one expects from the Army Corp parks! Clean site, facilities. Senior pass rate always a welcome value.
OTA and Verizon both good. Stayed two nights and was so pleased I stayed another two.
Will be sure to return yet again. First come sites are great for travelers! - Wicked Witch

This is an old Army Corps of Engineer campground that is in need of upgrading. Of the 321 sites, only 109 have 30 amp power. There is no 50 amp electric or water at the camp sites, however you may be lucky enough to have a site close to a water hydrant that you could tie into with a "Y" or "T" adapter. There is no sewer at any site although there is a dump station with two access points.
The electric sites are situated very close together. The non-electric sites are more spacious, especially those that back up to the water. Those are lovely sites if you want to/can boondock.
If you camp at an electric site, plan on taking leveling blocks with you as many will require side to side leveling. Also you may need blocks for your rear stabilizers because some of the sites "drop off" in the back.
The restrooms/showers are very old and need major refurbishing. The restrooms were clean and serviced regularly, we didn't use the showers.
The rates vary for the campground: Electric-$24.00; Lakefront non-electric-$21.00; Other not-electric0$19.00; and Multiple Family Site-$34.00. They do accept the "Golden Access" and "America the Beautiful Access" cards which gives you a 50% discount.
All in all, it is an okay campground and we will stay there again. - dmoore1108

Although Kool Lakes Campground wasn't fully operational when we visited at season opening (we'll forgive them for a bad preceding winter), we had a great time. It has some newly renovated restrooms, but also some shabby, in-need-of-repair facilities, as well. The playground and swimming lake were great. Access to Nelson-Kennedy Ledges was awesome, just minutes down the street. Our campsite was spacious and we took advantage of the big ball field across the way. - JPolisena

This is a nice park mostly seasonal. Very nice seasonal sites. Weekender sites are grass with some stones. Swim lake is very clean, bathrooms are clean. Owners are very nice. They have a phone on the front of the office that rings to one of their cell phones so they can be reached 24 hours. The kitchen is open on weekends: the cheese steaks are great. They also live on site. We will camp here again. - camper1

We also were charged more then the rate stated on the web site. We asked why and were ignored. Site was not level at our "premium" site. Gravel roads dusty. Restroom facilities are OK in center of park. Lots of traffic all day and night. Good Wi-Fi. Close to am Amish community which had a meat market EXCELLENT meat but priced much like a grocery store. Here for a week; probably NOT stay here again. - Trikki Rikki

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 is the worst campground I have ever stayed at. There are only primitive facilities available, and these outhouses are filthy! There are no glass bottles allowed at this park and they will search your car and cooler when you arrive. There is trash all over the sites. The other campers are rude and permitted to do whatever they want. Most did not sleep and partied very loudly all night. Many did not purchase firewood, but chose to tear down branches and knock over saplings in our campsite in the middle of the night. We were not able to sleep at all due to the screaming and loud music. The staff did warn us about the more "wild kids," and we did attempt to camp as far away as possible. It did not matter. Thank goodness they don't allow glass bottles. I would never bring a child to this campground and will never be returning myself. The kind of people that this campground attracts have ruined the nearby and beautiful Nelson Kennedy Ledges State Park. - dneidert

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
