Hanging Out at Erie KOA Holiday Campground

We love camping pretty much year round, but camping this time of the year in the North East offers some of the best opportunities to be outdoors that one can imagine. Unfortunately my wife couldn't tag along on this trip due to a new addition to our family and boy did she miss out.

Working in the industry we find ourselves very fortunate to stay at a lot of great properties around the region. I was thrilled however when I got the opportunity to spend a full day and night at the Erie KOA Holiday in Erie, Pa. especially this time of the year where the temperatures are near perfect and the parks aren't super crowded.

This KOA has been a "Presidents Award" winner for many years running.

First of all I have never been to this area of our state and secondly, as much as we love all types of camping it seems the more the years go by, the more we enjoy the beauty of the log cabin in the woods. I don't know if its the atmosphere it offers, or the lack of campsite set up but my wife and I love when we get the opportunity to stay in a comfy cabin anywhere in the great outdoors.

These cabins face the fishing and paddle boat lake.

The grounds are beautifully landscaped offering lots of privacy between cabins.

This KOA offers 28 different cabins offering something for every size party and budget.

RV sites are situated on the opposite side of the lake so everyone can share in its serenity. 

Tee Pee anyone - set up on decks and lake side.

In addition to the 28 cabins you'll find both back in and pull thru RV sites along with clamping tee pees and primitive tent sites. The KOA Holiday is children and adult friendly alike offering something for everyone and is conveniently located close to two major highways. Free Wi Fi was available too.

A kids playground lets them spend their time outdoors and having fun.

The heated pool and hot tub and large pavilion offer lots of great summertime activities.

There's a fully stocked campground store and ice and propane are available on site.

Pull thru sites make it easier to accommodate larger rigs with more being added.

All RV sites offer water, sewer and electric hookups.

Beautiful Lake Erie and Presque Isle State Park are less than 10 miles away 
and offer a safe haven for swimming, boating, and fishing.

I had a great time staying with the friendly staff in Erie. As I mentioned, it was quiet and clean and very peaceful this time of year. The lake there and the surroundings just make you feel at ease. You could see the pride in ownership at this park and it was a joy to visit, even though my bride couldn't join me. I would highly recommend you give them a try.
