Under construction

We spent a weekend here last month. Park itself has considerable construction going on with no water access. However the campground was open and sites are nice and spacious.

Campsites and views, oh my!

First time staying at Chester State Park. Checked in at the Ranger’s station with friendly staff and a small store front with ice available. Picked pull through site 16. All 25 of the sites are on mostly level ground. The lake from the campground has a fairly new access via a ADA compliant walkway with lighting leading to swings, benches and Adirondack chairs surrounding a rock fire pit. There are benches facing the lake for sitting and or fishing and a new deck that provide even better views of the lake. The trails are well marked and wide that run along the lake edge. There is fishing, kayaks and canoes at the boat dock for rent and to our children’s disappointment no swimming in the lake. The other side of the park has the boat dock, playgrounds for the kiddos and plenty of grassy areas and picnic tables for sitting by the lake. Also there is a professional disc golf course on site. Last but not least the bathhouse is up to date, clean and well stocked.

Great place, but...

It's a very nice campground with very friendly people and nice trails around. The only issue which wasn't big for me due to tent camping, the sites looked washed out and very unlevel so depending on camper or RV might take some work getting level!

Decent

Kind of sketchy. Very open gravel lots with small parking places for RVs. Random people who aren’t staying at the campground asking you personal questions. Toilets were a little dirty and so were the showers.

Not a real camping site since 2017

Anne Springs Close Greenway is NOT really a camping site, you are NOT allowed to camp since 2017. They are making remodeling since then. They have 2 camp events where families can do some very basic camping (ideal for 1st time campers). Bad think 1st time campers think is a picnic day, they are loud and bring canopies, even large speakers. Organizers are top of the line friendly and enthusiastic, thousands of acres are clean and well maintained with access to ok restrooms, fishing spots and a very nice restaurant inside. Greenway is kind of a nature COMERCIAL area.

Perfect for our needs

We chose this KOA for it being 10 miles from my mom, the people around us were super friendly and the staff was super friendly. They had mini golf and very small playground and a small pool but all in all a very nice place!

Good

Great Space

Very nice park

We stayed at the park a couple of times. It’s a very nice county park with full hook ups. They are doing construction right now redoing the boat docks, beach and playgrounds area. It will be very nice when done. Some sites are a little small and some are not very level but if you call the campground hosts and rangers are very helpful in helping you get on the right sight.

Pretty good place to camp!

This was a pretty good place to camp. There is a hike to the campsite from the parking lot so we definitely got our workout in bringing our gear in. 

The hikes here are really awesome and the facilities are nice and clean! We really enjoyed all of the different hikes and the lake as well as the hike to the top of the mountain. The hike to the top was a little strenuous for smaller kids. 

The trails were also pretty crowded. Overall is was a great experience!

Beautiful campground close to home!

Beautiful campground and clean facilities! The sites were nice and spacious. 

The lake is so pretty and we caught a huge catfish!

You can kind of hear the cars at night but it wasn’t too bad. Very friendly park rangers too. Would love to go back!
