Acorn Acres Campground – Benton, PA
We were looking for a place to stay close to Knoebels Amusement Park and I found this campground online. I called and ask how far away from Knoebels they are and was told about 1/2 hour. Actually it is more like an hour away. We rented the Green Cabin for $120 + tax for a Friday night.The road to this cabin was in very poor shape. And it is not a cabin it is an old house with very old disgustingly stained and dirty carpets all over. There was no air conditioning. The cabin had a small TV with an antenna and not any clear channels.
The toilet did not flush properly and the shower did not drain properly. We found that there was not enough hot water for two people to take a short shower. Water from the sink was brown and full of dirt particles.
The furniture was old and it had bad smell. The kitchen was clean. In their restaurant there was just the owner and no menu or prices. We were told we could have spagetti or burgers. Without any prices on site we decided to look for food elsewhere. So we drove 15 miles to find a pizzeria.
We looked for fishing poles to rent and owner told us we could borrow some and they were outside by the restaurant before we left out to eat. They were gone (as was the owner!) when we came back. So no fishing. No activities, except there was a nice playground for the kids. (Everything needed to be cleaned and wiped off).
The next morning we left around 7am, left the key in the office and rung the bell but nobody answered. Still sleeping I assume. This campground is just for the locals with their own RVs, not for the visitors. Oh yes, public restroom had filthy soaked wet floors.
Only nice thing about the cabin was the location, very private with little pond and a creek next to it.
Overall very disappointing for the price we paid.
