Very nice campground and resort. The staff was friendly and as helpful as they could be. The resort appears to rely on summer-only employees who apparently are not given all of the information they should have to impart to guests. Case in point: The resort offers a honey wagon that you can schedule to dump your waste tanks at your campsite. No information about the honey wagon was provided at check-in so I asked 3 different employees when the wagon typically made its runs and received 3 different answers (non of which, it turned out, were correct). The resort has free Wi-Fi available, but the coverage throughout the resort is very spotty. I could not get a connection at my campsite. I could not get a cell signal at all anywhere in the resort (I have Verizon). I did see several other people talking on cell phones in the resort who must have had other carriers. All that said, the campground is quite nice and there are many beautiful views of the lake and surrounding mountains from many of the campsites. Being on a lake, the resort is very boat/water-centric. We are not boaters, but enjoyed the beach and the water park in the resort. There is not much to do in the area surrounding the resort although we did visit Lincoln Caverns which we enjoyed.

Very nice campground and the staff was friendly. We stayed here two nights and really enjoyed this quiet campground. I would recommend this campground as a "base camp" from which you can do other things in the area because there are no amenities to speak of (in particular for families with small children). Our campsite was level, had water and electric, and was tree covered as were most of the sites. We attended Railfest 2008 at the National Railroaders Museum in Altoona and this campground couldn't have been more convenient. We arrived at the campground just in time to join a group of people entering the building where several model trains are set up and had a wonderful time seeing them run. Our 3 year old loved it! We would definitely stay here again.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful both on the phone making reservations, and in person at the campground. We were allowed to look at all of the available sites when we arrived and choose the one we liked. Our site (#46) was a shaded pull-through with full hook ups, was level, and allowed easy access. Completely unshaded sites, referred to as the "sun deck", were available, but we were glad to be in the shade in the 95 plus degree heat and high humidity. The campground store was organized and well-stocked with the basics in addition to souvenirs. We didn't get a chance to try it, but they do offer hand-dipped ice cream in a small cafe-style seating area next to the store. The campground is only minutes from downtown Gettysburg and all of the Civil War history you care to take in. Our overall experience here was very good and the campground offered some nice amenities such as a clean pool, putt-putt-golf, and a playground. Our 3.5 year old greatly enjoyed the pool. We would absolutely stay here again.
