we were there the same time as a bible group and they were not very considerate to other campers. We called the office a few times due to the noise. The office was aware of our problem and they were supposed to get in touch with me about another weekend but we have yet to hear from them. Extremely disappointed with the way management handled the ongoing problem. This problem persisted through Sunday afternoon when the group finally left. The group was also rude to us and our friends.

We clearly owe you an apology. We thought we had resolved your concerns in the multiple conversations we had with you while during your visit. It is apparent that our communication skills need some sharpening. We believed we were to call you if there was an opening for the weekend in which you had expressed interest. Even though that didn't occur, we should have followed up with you, and we did not. I am as disappointed in the way we handled your request, too. We sincerely apologize for not meeting your expectations as well as not meeting the standards we set for ourselves. Best regards, Janet Keen, Owner

As we've been going to Keen Lake for over 20 years now, you'd be hard pressed to find a better campground. You're greeted at the office/store by friendly faces. The store is well equipped with everything you forgot. Food? Ray's Supermart is a 5 minute drive down Route 6, a Dollar General and a gas station all there in Waymart. The sites range from lakefront to deep in the woods. The fishing is the best I've found anywhere in PA. Bass, large and smallmouth, Pickerel, Tiger Muskies and a bunch of panfish. You can bring your own boat or rent rowboats, canoes, kayaks or paddle boats. From the Frontier sites on the far side of the lake to full service sites for big trailers and motorhomes they got you covered.

Thank you for your lovely review. We love seeing guests return each year. It's like meeting long-lost friends, and the pleasure is much more ours, than yours! We look forward to seeing your next year, John! Best, Jan, Jen, Jane, and Jim Ann, The Keen Sisters

Making Lifetime Memories

We loved everything about our Keen Lake stay. We rented an RV, which had all the comforts of home, including A/C and heat. Having a propane grill and grilling utensils provided for us made making dinner a snap. Our rental RV also included everything we have in our kitchen at home (fridge, microwave, toaster, etc.) as well as outdoor comforts like the lawn chairs, picnic table, and garbage cans. We really only had to bring food, clothes, and linens. Our kids didn't know where to play first, with the beach, pool, arcade and multiple playgrounds. The activities for everyone were the icing on the cake, they were fun and gave the kids a chance to meet other kids. The campground is so clean and nicely decorated. The pool was immaculate and the bathrooms are tidy. I really don't know how Keen Lake can have so many guests but stay so clean and organized. The staff must have superpowers. The campground was full, but never seemed crowded. The other campers were considerate, and we had no problems with noise or disruptive behavior. The staff is amazing, and really goes out of their way to make your stay pleasant. The extensive experience of this business shines through. They know exactly what people need to have a great vacation, and how to run such a large campground. When we got back home, we called the next day and made reservations to stay again. We love Keen Lake!

Beautiful campground
0 % of users found this review helpful
We had the most beautiful lakeside campsites! The resort staff members were all very friendly and helpful; and the park was very clean. Easily accessible to grocery store, Dollar General; lots to do in the area. Really beautiful experience. Only drawback for us was not being able to let the kids ride their bikes everywhere; there is some thru traffic on the township road and it isn't safe to let little kids ride their bikes there. Our kids were not prepared for that and were a little disappointed. Otherwise--great!

Thank you for your lovely response. We are so delighted that your family enjoyed your time with us. We absolutely agree with your assessment of biking on Keen Lake Road. While we encourage our bike enthusiasts to ride in SunRise Knoll, Top of the Morning, Gravity Lane, we completely understand that getting little guys to that area isn't as easy with a township road! Thank you for staying with us. We so appreciate your enthusiasm and your kindness. Best regards, Jan, Jen, Jane, and JimAnn The Keen Sisters
