From the messages I am seeing on Facebook the Jonestown Campground is no longer a KOA, and there are reports of it no longer having cable or internet.

We saw some definite signs that things weren't going well there on our last two visits.

Anyone else been there recently?

Last I heard, the new owners were making improvements. Doesn't sound like improvements to me.

Old post, but I'll update it anyway.
The old Jonestown KOA is now just Jonestown Campground.
The old Lickdale Campground, is now Jonestown KOA/Lickdale Campground.
The worst part, when you get off 81, the blue and white traffic sign says Jonestown KOA, 5 miles and points to the right.
In the background of that sign, you can see the huge KOA sign at the new Jonestown KOA/Lickdale.
And to make matters worse, if you would make that left and travel about 5 miles, you will find Pine Grove KOA/Twin grove.

LOL, this cracks me up....I used to live right down the road a piece from that sign.. havent been out that way in about 5 years but i can picture it in my mind...

I can remember when that campground at the crossroads in lickdale was under about ten feet of water....just a few years ago. there didnt used to be anything out there, now there is a wendys, a diary queen, a hess station and exxon....but used to be the middle of nowhere when i was a young woman

I suspect there will be a lot of frustrated people with these changes. With the way they made this happen it would be very very easy to think you are making a reservation at the old Jonestown KOA, and actually be making it at the 'new' Jonestown KOA (formerly Lickdale), in my opinion the 'new' KOA is much tighter sites, and not somewhere that we would book (we have toured it)

And finding contact info for the 'old' Jonestown is not easy.

"Old" Jonestown campground isn't fancy, but it was typically our first of the year, last of the year camping sight. Easy to get in and out of, basic amenities, and the sites are laid out nicely. Staffing and maintenance has definitely been an issue though. This year I have not yet made any reservations there, I am sure I am not the only one.

That's interesting. If I remember right, the current owner just bought that a year or 2 ago. But without much advertising and very hard to find we listings, I guess that's what happens.

Looks like Jonestown KOA, then Jonestown Family Campground is now Jonestown AOK

But if you prefer to make your reservations ahead, you seem to be out of luck. I have left two messages since last Friday, and have not gotten a return call.

They do have a new website:

And the entrance sign is yellow and black. This should surely confuse people with the current Jonestown KOA.
