Great place!! The camp ground itself is clean as well as the bathrooms and showers. Most sites are rather small and open (not shaded.) However, there are wooded sites and we were lucky in getting a fairly spacious site. The roads are rather narrow however making for some precarious turns. There is a nice pool inside the campground as well two nice playgrounds. Bay front sites are available as well. A waterpark (separate from the pool) is open to the public but is free for campers and it is a load of fun! The western theme park is also open to the public and offers discount admission to campers. Several restaurants/snack bars are available. The camp store is very well stocked and even offers beer and wine for going rates. We had a non-sewer site and had to use the dump station. There are only two and they are tough to get into. Get a sewer site if they're available!! Activity schedule was decent too. Golf carts are available for rental and they seemed to have plenty. We didn't know they had them and still got one at check-in without a problem.
This campground is very nice for a family with children. The waterpark is great, and comparable to a smaller-scale Great Wolf Lodge type "water play ground." The playground is big and well maintained as well. Golf carts are available for rent, so reserve one when you plan your trip - there were none available when we checked and we weren't aware of the rentals before arrival. They have a VERY nice camp store and the activity schedule is good too. Our site was roomy, gravel covered and fairly level. The roads are stone and of decent width to allow manuevering with your rig. Bathrooms were small but clean enough. We will return.
Holiday Park is a large campground in a rural part of Maryland on the Delaware State line. It is nicely wooded with plenty of shade. The staff was very friendly as were the campers including the seasonals. As mentioned previously, fires must be out by 11:30pm and staff members do patrol to ensure compliance with this rule. The pool is of average size, 3-5 feet deep - there is no kiddie pool however. No sewer hook ups at all but the honey truck only cost $5 for a pump out. Playgrounds and bathouses were spaced out nicely. Overall this was a nice place for a relaxing weekend, with plenty of family campers and a welcoming atmosphere.
Otter Lake is fanastic. The lake is beautiful and big. The sites are spacious and wooded, with enough trees between sites to offer some privacy. Our site was so level I didn't need to put anything under my tires. It was cold so we didn't spend much time outside but we did spend lots of time in the indoor pool and hot tub! The beach area could have been a little bigger given the size of the lake. There is plenty to do in the camp ground but if you feel the need to leave there plenty more to do in the Poconos. We will be going back in the summer of 2008.
We were greeted at the gate and escorted to our site. The staff member also offered to help us back in. Our site was level and of moderate size. It was sparsely shaded, however other parts of the park are well shaded. We went to the PA Rennaisance Faire which is only a couple miles away, this was a great place to stay if you're going to the Faire. The bathrooms and showers were clean and new. The store was ok. All staff encountered were friendly and helpful. Our kids had a ball trick or treating and on the haunted hayride. We also attended the DJ'd dance. A magician entertained the kids at the dance. As stated before, a rod and gun club neighbors the park so you will hear some shooting. My only slight complaint, was the proximity to the PA turnpike. I could hear some traffic during the still of the night. Overall a nice place with a friendly feel to it. We would go again.
We were met by a friendly greeter who gave us our car pass and map. We paid $3 extra for a "prime" site and it was worth it. Regular sites were of average size but our site was huge!! We could have fit two campers in our site. It was level with a beautiful view. There were so many activities this weekend we couldn't keep them straight - bingo, breakfast, bar-b-q lunch, crafts, ceramics, costume parade, trick or treating, haunted house and more bingo. Bathrooms were old and needed updating but were clean. The pond/lake was beautiful. We will return.
Some camp ground just have that "feeling" to them and for us, Oak Creek was like that. From the time we pulled in we knew we liked it there. The "main" road is paved, but the rest are stone/gravel. The stone roads are somewhat narrow but plenty navigable. The store was fairly well stocked but not wonderful. The pool was closed for the season but appeared nice enough and was fairly large. The fishing pond was nice, although we didn't catch anything. The creek runs through the front half of the camp ground and adds to the feel of the camp ground. A nice hiking trail runs up the side of the "mountain" to a pretty cool rock formation. Our site was level and wide. Most appeared to be about the same the size give or take. We had plenty of room to spread out and park. The rest rooms and showers were clean. The seasonals appeared well maintained as well.
We were met at the gate by a guard on Friday of our arrival, who directed us to the registration office / camp store. The staff, then and throughout our stay, was very friendly. This campground is broken down into four sections: two parts in the lower half and two parts in the upper half. We were in one part of the lower section. Our area had nice level sites that were plenty roomy. Our picnic table even had a roof over it! The bigger pool was closed for the season but the one that was open was nice enough. The swimming lake is really a pond. I would bet it gets pretty crowded during the season. We did crafts with the kids and the activities man. As the previous poster indicated, he was a bit rough but we didn't let it affect our trip. The upper half is beautiful. Very big sites, very wooded, very private. The store was lacking; some shelves were empty and they weren't restocking due to the season being over, yet there were still plenty of campers in the campground. The "main" roads were paved and the site roads were stone. The bath houses / rest rooms were clean and well maintained. We will return.
Our site was extremely small, and not level by any stretch of the imagination. All of the wooded sites were the same: very small and uneven. There are a lot of seasonals, and they are not very well kept. The store has a nice variety of merchandise and the bath house is clean, although small and older. The playground is not much more than a backyard set up. This is not a destination campground. What makes this campground is that it is so close to all of the Lancaster County attractions. If you're looking for an inexpensive place to park your rig and tour around Lancaster County this is a good place.
I was told to be careful about going to Lake in Wood because after camping there I wouldn't want to go anywhere else. This isn't far from the truth. Lake in Wood is simply wonderful. Roads are paved and gravel, of adequate width. The sites are wooded and offer some privacy from neighboring sites. A good portion of the campground is hilly and sites are not very level. There are multiple playgrounds scattered about the park. The lake is pretty, but somewhat murky. It is a fishing lake and swimming is not allowed. The pool complex is very nice. It includes a big kiddie pool and is best described as a water playground. The main pool is T shaped - with the base of the T being under roof. There are retractable walls added in the early and late season making it an indoor pool. An adult only hot tub is next to this pool. The restaurant is great and the store is adequately stocked. There are plenty of activities on the weekends and some weeknights that are all family oriented. Electric golf carts are permitted and are available for rent. We will definitely go back next summer.
This is a bare bones basic campground. No sewer hook ups. Sites are large, but not very wooded. I wouldn't call the bathrooms dirty but they did smell. This park is really just a spot to stay while going to the amusement park.
OVR is three miles from the ocean town of Sea Isle City. The roads are paved, but they are narrow! Sites are pretty level, in fact I backed in, checked my bubbles, and all was good. Our site was very roomy but that was not the norm. Most small-medium to medium. The sites are all wooded. Bath houses were clean, older but clean. They charged for showers. I didn't use them but I think I read it was 25 cents a minute. Playgrounds were nothing impressive, some were more like backyard sets than playgrounds. The lake was wonderful! We like lakes better than pools or the ocean so we are partial. But this lake was pristine. Very clean and a beautiful beach surrounding the whole lake. There's a separate catch and release fishing pond as well. The pool was generic. Activities are scheduled every Fri, Sat and Sun. There are a lot of seasonals here but in our experiences all the seasonal folks were very friendly and hospitable. Cable TV at all sites and Wi-Fi internet throughout the park. There's a snack bar on the beach and a mini-restaurant/snack bar at the main entrance/store/office area. This snack bar is also an ice cream bar. Despite some of the less than stellar points, this place was wonderful overall. The friendliness of the people and the incredible lake made it stand out for us. We will definitely be going back next summer for a longer stay.
