Allentown-Lehigh Valley KOA – New Tripoli, PA
Allentown-Lehigh Valley KOA like a motel with guests on wheels!
I was working a project in Allentown, and decided to stay at this campground for 6 nights. I was surprised at the Zero Alcohol policy, but it’s a thought. Here’s my experience…Check-in was quick, KOA Discounts clearly stated. I got an immediate escort to my site with firewood available from the cart. The pool was fantastic, and clean, but not heated. Kiddy pool is there too. Quiet is complete at 10pm. Fires are out by 12 Midnight.
If you want a place to stay that does a great job of catering to your needs, this KOA lives up to the bill. There is a nice little creek running through the property with reasonable access for everybody. Only tents and the smallest of wheeled units will fit creek side.
In KOA fashion, the sites are a bit tight, but big rigs have no problems with the selection of pull-thru’s. The two-way area is a bit more open with opportunities for canopy to canopy sites.
The bathrooms, laundry, store, and rec room are new and beautiful. The grounds are well done. The WiFi connection shuts down randomly, and the cable connections are good.
Gorney Park, Lehigh Valley Zoo, and several wineries are within minutes; New York City, Baltimore, and Philadelphia are within a day drive.
Now about the alcohol rule? It is a good rule that promises a good time for everyone with a good night sleep every night. Children are better supervised with non-drinking parents. If you want to get drunk and loud around an over-sized campfire, don’t come here. If you want a good family place to stay, this is it.
My salute to the owners and staff of the Allentown KOA.
