Everything about average. Sites were decent, seasonal campers were friendly. Roads were drivable. Staff was able to answer questions when needed - NE Ohio Camper
Aug 2012 - $25.00
Very quiet park. Very friendly staff. Wide range of sites available: from open area pull-throughs to shady seasonal sites. There is a fairly large number of seasonal campers, most units and sites appear to be very well maintained. Good TV signal via antenna and excellent Verizon cellular signal. Would definitely stay here again. - rjohnso3a

If you love rules, you will love this park. Perhaps the first indication is a huge sign posted on the side of a building at the entrance: "GO SLOW OR GO AWAY!" There literally was a 5 MPH speed limit sign in front of every campsite. Most of the tenants were long term, but the grounds were clean and neat. Large signs beginning with "NO" listed rule after rule. They were posted everywhere. The family-run park is grass and gravel, with ancient bath houses and a pavilion which could all use an updating. Sites range from spacious to narrow. There are many tent sites in beautifully wooded areas. Our site was very close to our neighbor and not particularly level. - rfmscat

We enjoyed our stay at Crawfords. It is a clean and quiet campground. Wifi is not very good. If you walk near the campground office it is. Our connectivity with TMobile was nil. The neighbors had Verizon with 3 bars. We have stayed multiple times, and would stay again. - gretzky

On PA-51, about 6 miles from the Ohio border. Turn east/south at the blinking yellow light onto OH-168, Salem Church Road then about .8 mile, turn right on Hodgson Road, then .8 mile and left into the CG.
Weekly rate $170; monthly $380. No credit/debit cards accepted; cash or check only. All electric is metered, even for daily visits ($0.11/kwh). One employee who is very friendly and helpful. Municipal access roads are sufficiently wide, maintained, asphalt but lots of ups-and-downs. Watch for one low-hanging tree on Hodgson Road. Internal roads are gravel, somewhat narrow with no overhead obstacles.
A variety of sites which are grass/gravel with mowed lawns and occasional tall trees. A few sites have patios; most have picnic tables. All sites are FHU-20/30/50, level with pedestal at the road end of the sites. Sufficient clear sky for satellite antennas. No cable TV. Fires permitted in fire rings. Well water has low, but adequate pressure and okay taste. No office store. No propane sales. Restrooms/showers are old but clean with newer fixtures but minimal privacy (score "B-"). No laundry.
Spacious, grass playground. Very nice, unheated, salt water pool. No spa. Free Wi-Fi but internet access is weak and unreliable. Verizon coverage is dismal at "½ bar." CG is in the country and is very quiet. No recycling bins. - StephenK

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

This is more of a very popular destination-family park than an overnight. The park is well managed with many seasonals and lots of activities on the weekend. Most sites are tight, level, shaded and short. Good dog park, nice swimming pool, playground, and store. We were there over Labor Day Weekend and the place was packed with happy, well-behaved families. Water pressure and electricity were good in spite of the crowd; WiFi bogged down. No cable. No OTA and our Verizon hot spot didn't work - but the bands on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights were terrific! (Big shout out here to the Manhattan Band: you folks were FABULOUS!) On Sunday there was a marathon bocce ball tournament that lasted for more than 12 hours. This is a "make some memories" park. If ever in the area - and we can get in - we will stay there again. - Mom_of_Two

Sites are tight, but site 20 was ample for our 42'. Trees toward the back of our site still allowed us to use our satellite. The pool was nice, had one foot deep shallow end up to five foot at its deepest. Quite a few seasonals, well taken care of. Decent playground as well. We also rented the deluxe family cabin, site
79, complaints about the comfort of the beds. A/C could be a little better as well. Overall this campground isn't bad, just tight. - User3025

We camped with 2 other families and all were disappointed. No shade and sites were very short and small. Could hardly open awning or slideout. Only 30 amp electric and had a very hot weekend afraid we would lose our service. Permanent campers not friendly with weekenders. No chairs available at pool to sit, permanent residents go early and put towels on chairs and some go unused for hours but don't remove a towel or you are yelled at and towel goes back on. Campground has not kept up with the times. Really needs updating especially for pull-in sites. Also bathouse and showers could use a make-over. We have removed Rosepoint from our camping list. Will not be returning. Also fire rings were at backbumper of trailer could not use or trailer would have caught fire. - Winpooh

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

This is a clean park but I can't say it is big rig friendly. The one pull thru was long enough but low hanging branches forced me to disconnect and ask for another site. The half mile long service road in is only wide enough for one vehicle and meeting a vehicle would be a serious headache for someone. There was minimum cell phone use and only 3 PBS channels. Our site was dirt and grass. - Michael47

This park is very clean and beautifully kept in pine forest .We stayed here in 45' motorhome . our site was large under trees. We would stay here again - RHOWARD

We stayed here upon the recommendations of friends. I prefer the State campgrounds of Pennsylvania (with at least water and electric). This campground had somewhat of that feel. It was quiet, had water, sewer, and electric and was clean. The camp sites were clean, as were the bathrooms. Our pad was cement, as a few of them were. Most of the sites looked level for the most part. Staff was friendly, and very willing to help and accommodate. Electric boxes had 20/30/50 amp connections. Water pressure was very good. The camp store had a lot of what you may have forgotten. Plenty of sights around the area to go see if you are into the outdoors. Beaver creek State Park had MILES of walking / hiking trails 4 miles away. We will go back! - Steverino

Small and not many people. Went 2 different times. One for weekend, once just passing through area. Vault toilet, pretty clean. Only has sun shower-- brrrrr. No water to fill camper tank and it said on website they did. They do have dump station. 4 or 5 electric sites, those sites back up towards a public road, although not terribly busy you still had noise from road. Would stay at again over night if passing through. - The Hoeys
Aug 2010 - $22.00
This is a very small State Park Campground. They only have 6 electric sites. They have water for tents but not with a hose hookup so you can fill your water tank. Not good. They only have one shower and it's a sun shower (you have to get the water bags from the camp host for $1.00). This place is great for tents and pop ups. Sites 19-27 and 49-55 are away from the road, very private, quiet and beautifully wooded. These are for tents, no electric. Pioneer Village and the picnic area are near the creek and very very pretty, just a small drive from the campground. - RVBuckeye

We stayed here for several nights while visiting friends in the area, and we needed full hookups after dry camping for a few days before. The campground is mostly populated by seasonal campers, and the owner was quite friendly when he greeted us. But overall the campground can best be described as shabby. The view behind our RV was a field of rubble across the street. The site was gravel, but surrounded with mud. The front view was of well-past-their-prime motorhomes set up for seasonal camping. Tight curves on the interior roads. A good place to stop on the way somewhere else. - Miles and Smiles
Jun 2017 - $30.00
This was an overnight stay for us on an extended trip NW. The site was level but very wet due to much rain. Roads to the campground are rural, narrow, steep hills and sharp curves. Not recommended for larger RV's (ours is 32 foot). Friendly seasonals and staff. Store/office not open during our stay. Watch the signs and LOOK for park entrance sign before pulling into unknown unpaved roadways. - Forest Woods
Oct 2016 - $30.00
Older rustic campground. A bit out of the way to get there - several miles of rural paved roads. All the utilities worked. Campsite was grass. If the weather had been bad, it might have been a problem getting in and out. - Wagon Master
Sep 2016 - $28.00
This is definitely an older park made up mostly of seasonal/permanent residents. We had reservations and were told the store wouldn't be open but they gave us a # to call. We got voicemail when we called so it took awhile to get checked in. The roads are narrow but we didn't have any problems getting to our site. There is little chance of getting satellite as it is fully covered with trees. Utilities worked well. The sites slope to the back so our front end was almost on the ground. Also it had evidently rained recently and there was some mud. Sites are gravel/dirt. Verizon and AT&T worked well. The grounds are kept up good. We were here over Labor Day weekend and it was packed with kids. There were about 3 cars at every site, so it was hard getting in and out of the park. They did have activities going on the whole weekend. Like I said, the park is older, but it is ok for a short stay. Residents were cordial. Other reviews mentioned the dragstrip...they had races going, but it wasn't that bad. Inside, we never heard them.+0\ - jacknpeg

Rate is for 30 amp FHU back-in site. Roads are gravel, sites gravel or grass, in a heavy woods, with escort to site. No satellite reception, though Verizon cell and 3G were excellent. Campground is almost all seasonal campers. This is not a four star resort by any means, but it was more than adequate to serve as a home base while visiting in the area. The drag strip, Quaker City Raceway, that an earlier review commented on was here some 50 years ago when I lived in the area as a teenager, so it isn't likely going away anytime soon. We stayed during a time of heavy rains and they parked us on an older site with well packed gravel. The RV next to us sunk into the mud through the thin layer of new gravel on their site. We could stay here again if in the area, as long as we could get the same site. - Big Moose

We arrived on a Friday for a two night stay. After checking in a man on a golf cart escorted us to our site. He help me back in and warned about the noise from the drag strip that was a mile away. The noise from the cars and motorcycles was annoying. It went on until after midnight. Saturday we were out and came back in the early afternoon. That noise from the drag strip went on all day until after midnight again. This is not the fault of the campground. This has driven a lot of seasonal campers away. The locals would like to shut the racetrack down. We asked for an activity sheet but they were out of them. They had a hay ride, corn roast and pot luck diner that we did not know about. They also had fireworks. This is an older campground and the buildings show it. The restrooms and showers need to be remodeled. The lake is nice for fishing or a small boat. We did not see anyone swimming even though they have an area roped off for swimming. - psrujak

As most of the other reviewers have stated, and I agree, this is a beautiful campground. It is well maintained and every site is manicured and clean. It is easy to see that when the CG owners care, so do the people who stay, whether for one day or all season. During several long walks with the K9, I did not see one site that needed cleaning or updating. And being out in the country, the "sleepability" was excellent. It was peaceful and quiet at night. My only complaints, and they are not huge, is that there was no Wi-Fi the night we stayed, and I thought the rate was a tad high for a transient. The Wi-Fi was not a big deal for one night, but if we had stayed longer, it would have made a difference for us. No question, if in the area again, it will be Rocky Springs for us. - Love To Travel 2

$47/ day FHU rock site with picnic table and firepit Pros Absolutely beautiful campground Sites are spacious and beyond well maintained Wildlife galore - loved watching groundhogs and chipmunks peak out of the forest Family owned and run - they really care about the campground and it shows Pool was the perfect temperature Nice camp store with last minute items/ice cream/souvenirs Clean restrooms Laundry available Cons WiFi was a pain - you have to log back in constantly Not within anyone's control but the deer flies were intense (early July) - hopalongrving

This camp was a beautiful find!! The owners were extremely helpful and accommodating in every sense of the word. The cleanliness, scenic beauty, peace and serenity were tremendously comforting. Wish we lived a lot closer...we'd be there at every possible occasion! There was ample room to set up our trailer. Other units were visible, but the setting was simply idyllic & quiet, privacy was upheld beautifully. The road in to the campground is apparently part of an Amish community. We were surprised to see the horse & buggy traveling down the road. Lovely in every way. - donna mcfarland
