This was our first stay at this campground and it was a really great, but there are a few reasons I give it a 7 instead of a 9 or 10. We paid extra for a red carpet site (#10), in a row closest to the office and across from the pet walk area. These sites are so narrow, there was next to no room to sit by the fire and relax. Our firepit was right next to the road and there was no more than 5 ft of grass between our patio and the class A next to us. Some of them had a bit more room, but not much. Not worth paying extra for. Also, there was no WiFi at our site the whole week we were here. I had to go sit outside the office to get a connection. I spoke to two other campers in other areas of the campground who had the same problem. One last thing, the pet walk area was piled high with gravel and mulch piles about 30 ft long. Not much are for dog walking. On the good side, very well maintained campground with very nice landscaping. Lots of activities for kids and a very well stocked store. The employees were fabulous! The rangers were funny and friendly. The maintenance staff were equally good: since we got there during the bad rain storms on 4/16 our site was flooded. Once the rain stopped, they were at our site with gravel and mulch to help dry out the site and got us a new fire pit since the one that couldn't be moved, was filled with water. Everyone here is super nice. We'll stay here again, just not on a red carpet site.

This was a nice park, but the size of the sites and lack of privacy between them is what gets them a 7. We were on site 125 with a 34 ft TT. It was plenty long enough but really narrow. When our neighbors put their slide out, it came within 2 ft of our firepit, which couldn't be moved. There were no trees or shrubs between the sites. Some sites had more privacy, but many were just right up against each other in the loop we were in. Also, a very dusty campground. Fine, sandy gravel at the sites and gravel roads. There was a really nice pool area, very nicely landscaped with plenty of tables and chairs. Also a nice game room and playground area. It's a ten minute drive into Lake George village and the location is another great thing about this campground. I'd stay here again if I could pick out my site ahead of time.

Just got back from this campground today. Our site (C12) was a back in gravel site that was not level front to back or side to side. Took quite a bit of leveling to get it right. There were weeds growing up through the gravel all over our site. The back of our site looked out over a steep hill and down onto the road. There were alot of loose rocks and even cinderblock shoring up the back of the site: really not too safe. The roads in the campground are also gravel, but really in need of maintenance: spots where the gravel had worn away and many ruts. Used the bathroom behind the office: had no liquid soap, just a bar sitting in a pool of water on the sink, no towels to dry hands and litter and water all over the floor. Playground was outdated. The store was bare bones. The pool was ok, but small and not much area around the pool to sit. One more thing: the wood we purchased at the campground wasn't too good. It took a long time to get started and was hard to keep the fire going. I know this must sound nit-picky, so I'll add that the office staff were really nice, friendly and helpful with directions getting here and home. But we won't be staying here again.

This was our third stay here, each time for the paint ball weekend. We stayed at a 2-family site, 10 and 10A, with friends and the site was really big and easy to get in and out of. We were escorted to our site. They've made several improvements- new gravel on sites and roads, fence around the jumping pillow, pedal cart track, outdoor movie theater. They also recycle now and provide each site with a recycle bin that they come and empty while taking your trash. There were lots of planned activities for kids. We really love this campground and are hoping to get back in the summer when the water park is open. Prices go up really high in the summer from $60 in April to $98 in summer months, but that will include water park passes.

We just got back today from this campground and loved it!! We stayed for 5 nights on site P2 with a gorgeous mountain view. These sites are a few dollars extra, but it was worth it. The mountain view sites also have concrete pads for your unit and a concrete patio, and were easy to back into. The grounds were very well kept. There is a steep road into the campground, but not unmanagable if you're towing with the right vehicle. The owner of this campground was wonderful, very friendly and helpful with information on the area. And truly concerned for our happiness: we got a new neighbor while we were out one day, and when we got back all we could hear were their yapping dogs while they were away. The owner came over to apologize and said she tried calling them several times. She really felt bad for us. This campground is only about 15 minutes from downtown Asheville. The only reason this gets a 9 instead of a 10 is because if we came here in the summer, there is no pool to use. We would love to come back to this campground.

I really like this campground, but was pretty dissapointed on this visit. This was the second time we were here and both times on a full hook-up lake-front site. But this time, our site(LS 30) was much too small for our unit. We had to park our tow vehicle on our site since there was no room for it between our TT and the road and we were backed up as much as we could be.It was also very narrow.The further down the lake you go, towards the cabins, the smaller the sites are. Other than that, a really nice campground with two pools, full snack bar, mini golf, pedal cars, pedal boats. Also close by are Knoebels and a drive-in movie theater.

Upon arriving at the campground we weren't told of any activities, rules, etc. Not even a campground map until I asked for one. We were escorted to our site. We were on site 322. Pretty nice. Separated from the next site by a small creek and high reed grass. The sites I saw were narrow. We camped with two other families- one couldn't open their awning because there was a tree separating their site from the next one-that's how narrow the site was. Pool was clean, but small. Very small playground. Camp store was bare bones. On the up side- great fireworks display on July 4th. There is a boat launch here and that's were all our fun came from. Without a boat, not much to do here.

We really like this campground for quick weekend trips. Very friendly staff and excellent, locally made ice cream at the store. We were on site R, very large, wooded and easy to back into. Nice buffer of woods and shrubs to separate sites.They had a blood donor day during the weekend we were there. Really nice pool area with lots of grassy ares to spread out and also a good playground and basketball court right next to the pool. We'll camp here again.

We had to book more than a year in advance to get a full week here with two other families,and although none of the sites were together, they were close. We were on site T18. Our site was hard to back into because we had to back between the concrete patio(nice) and the site sign post. It's expensive at $80 a night, but that includes daily entrance to the water park, which adults and kids loved. They also provide a free beach shuttle that runs on a set schedule. A word of warning about site selection-our friends were on sites W15 and W21. There is a bay stream that runs a the back of these sites. At high tide it starts to encroach on these sites. At W21 it rose so much that it took the kids toys and flip flops into the stream and came up as far as the fire pit and the electric post. Management were not at all sympathetic. The only solution they offered was that if my friends wanted to leave early they would refund the unused days. I'd stay here again, just not on that row.

This was our second trip to Cherry Hill Park. The reason to stay here is proximity to DC. We stayed at site 925, right across from the hot tub/pool complex. The hot tub was wonderful! This is a clean, well maintained campground. Excellent store selling everything from food to souvenirs to RV toilets. It was pretty quite over Thanksgiving weekend, which made the road noise seem all the louder- that's the main problem with this campground. It is between two highways, so you will hear road noise.

We stayed here because it was close to Washington DC and we'd stay here again for that reason. The pool are was very nice. One heated pool and one unheated, with plenty of lounge chairs and some umbrellas to sit under. There was a great hot tub in the pool area also and a full snack bar/cafe. There was a nice playground and mini-golf.They have an excellent store. On the downside, the sites are very narrow. At the back of the park where we were, the Wi-Fi was not working. We had to walk up near the conference center/pool area to get a signal. For the price we were paying I expected to get Wi-Fi at my site. Also, there were not a lot of campers enjoying the outdoors. Many class A motohomes that campers never emerged from, but that's their choice. We would probably come here again for it's location.

This place has gone down on our scale. We camped here twice before for the Halloween weekends, but this was the first time we camped here in the spring. Now it very much has the feel of a seasonal campground-lots of people who knew each other and not many people like us who come for a weekend. The "greeter" at the gate was all business, telling us all the rules and not very friendly. The problem with the rules is they don't enforce them. Kids back at the campsites by 10:30? There were teens at the playground, next to our site, at 11pm. No kids under 16 at the pool without adults? There were 7 kids there without any adults when my family was at the pool. The lady in the store rolled her eyes at my daughter and said "I guess so" when she asked to cash in her game room tickets. Our pull-thru site was a gravel pad on a grass site. You had to pull through the grass, which was mud from the recent rain. They need more gravel in general on the sites and on the roads, especially in the wooded section. The last straw was Sat night when the campground put a pop-up at the site right next to ours- a pop-up with 12 people and 4 dogs and two vehicles. This area of the campground was almost empty. They could have put this large group much further away from us-we were the only TT in our entire row of sites. We may go back here for Halloween with friends, but never for a spring or summer weekend.

This park was downhill going into the campground and then up hill going up to the sites, but that is typical for the Pittsburgh area. The roads in the campground were gravel, but not well kept-- pretty rutted and uneven. The sites closer to the pool and play area are dug up-- looks like the sewer and electric are being re-done. Our 30 amp service wasn't working when we tried to hook up. The owner came and changed the breaker. The reason we stayed here was because it was close to downtown Pittsburgh, and that's the reason we would stay here again.

This is one of the best kept parks I've seen. Well maintained gravel roads and pads for your unit, nice grass between sites, artificial "rock" covering the sewer connections, nice picnic tables. The owners where very friendly and helpful. The only problem with the pull-through sites in front of the office/store is they are very narrow. We didn't use our awning due to how cold and windy it was, but we wouldn't have been able to sit under it if we wanted to because of how narrow the site was.

This campground has a high percentage of seasonal sites. Most are very well kept. Our site A9 was really large, especially in length, but was pretty unlevel. The front of our trailer needed lots of levelers. The campground was really quite, especially for a weekend. The pool was nice, and not crowded. There was a small pond for fishing, license required. There were two playground my kids enjoyed. No organized activities for kids or a game room. Definitely a place to come just for relaxation.

This campground is great! We had a site right on the lake, where you could fish right from your campsite. These site won't accommodate very large units though. They also have sites on the Susquehanna river, and even a couple with boat docks. The pool complex was very nice, with plenty of lounge chairs and tables with umbrellas. There's a pretty good snack bar for snacks or full lunches. There were alot of organized activites, which we did not do. They rent golf carts, pedal bikes and surries. They have paddle boats and bumper cars on the pond. They deliver your wood and ice, and pick up your trash daily. The Wi-Fi was free, but really slow. Only a few channels on the cable TV. This campground is close to Knoebels and Shikellamy State Park. We will definitely go back to Splash Magic.

This was our second stay here. Our site was really difficult to back into due to a tree on the site right by the road. We got in by luck and also because the camper across from us didn't mind us pulling onto her site! Still a nice campground, but the help in the office/store not quite as friendly as last time we were here-dissinterested and some just plain rude. We wished there were more chairs at the pool area.

We loved our site here. It was very spacious and easy to back into.They have one of the best campground stores I've seen and a really nice deck area around the store were you can get wifi internet. They have a nice playground and open field for the kids. Quite a hill getting to the campground!

This was our second time staying here for the free night of camping with KOA. We were met and escorted to our site. The staff were friendly. They've added a giant outdoor "connect four" game for the kids. We love the natural feel of this campground- lots of trees and boulders throughout. And we love the close proximity to Gettysburg Battlefield. We'll be back again next year.

We were disappointed in this campground. Our site was not shaded like we asked for, except for a line of trees at the back of the small site, and there was a shade structure built over the picnic table. We were in the lower section. There was an open sewer vent the diameter of a car tire on our site and I had to ask the office twice to have someone come and cover it. The pool was freezing cold! The game room, mini golf and activites were all very similar to every other campground we've ever been to so I don't understand why they call this a "resort" and charge $3.00 extra per night. This is a charge they don't put on their website or tell you about on your bill, unless you ask like I did. When I asked what the fee was for the lady at the registration said for the activities and amenities. But the activites were no different from the standard campground activities: crafts, dj dance, kids games. We will not be back to this overcharging campground. There are other nicer ones in this area to stay at.

We had a great time here on one of their Halloween Weekends. The haunted house and haunted hayride, both free, were great. They also has a halloween dance with a dj that we didn't go to. Our site was level and had some nice shade trees, but wasn't wooded. They have wooded sites also. I was worried after reading one of the previous posts, about the "seasonal slums" and hearing gunshots from that area of the campground. Turns out the campground's next door neighbor is a sportsmans club with a firing range. There are no firearms allowed at the campground. As for the seasonal area, who are we to pass judgement on someone else's trailer? We thought the grounds were very well kept, bathrooms were clean and staff were friendly. We will definitely be back!!

We stayed at one of the sites in the back wooded area and loved it. Very spacious, and each site is separated by trees so if felt private also. We wouldn't like to stay in the front of the campground near the pool and store since those sites are very close together and not shaded. There were two pools, one for adults 21+ and one for families. The family pool was packed and no one was in the adult one. The whole weekend we saw 2 people in the adult pool. I think they should reconsider the adult pool. We didn't end up using the family pool because it was so crowded. They have a great game room that our kids loved. The store was pretty well stocked.

The sites here are some of the best I've seen at any campground. They are spacious, level,shaded and separated by trees, so they seem private. The entry road and the campground itself have some steep hills, but we made it in fine, if slowly, with our travel trailer and Durango. The pool area is beautiful and overlooks the valley below. There was a nice game room for the kids, with most games just a quarter! There were a few planned activities like ceramics, hayride, sing along and bingo. My biggest gripe is that they charged me $6 extra for having my nephew along (non-family child), after already charging me $1 extra for each of the kids, (3 in total). I didn't notice the charge at first or I would have taken issue with it. But I'd still come back.

We stayed here to explore the Williamsburg/Jamestown area. Our site and most others had a concrete pad so it was completely level, as well as a concrete patio. We were not in the shaded area, but even so there were lovely decorative trees throughout the campground. There was a nice playground. The pool was not open during our visit. We were able to purchase our Williamsburg tickets from the camp store, but the cashier neglected to tell us they were just vouchers and that we still needed to get in line at Williamsburg. One other problem that occurred, we came out of our trailer after dinner to find our site completely wet. Once we confirmed it was not our trailer leaking, we realized our sewer was overflowing. Management sent workers over to our site and they wanted to borrow our flashlights, hoses, extension cords to look at the problem. Finally they got there own gear and ended up using a back-hoe to dig up a few sites away to fix the problem. Took well into the night and was loud, but at least it got fixed.

We stayed here as a stop off on our way to Niagara Falls. It is a beautiful campground. Many sites are right on the lake, although it looks like many of them are seasonal. Many other sites have lake views. There is not much shade near the lake, but shade sites are available further back. There are two small, very old playgrounds. No other activities for the kids, but we saw some paddle boats that may be rentals. Swimming is permitted in the lake. There is a very small camp store, mostly snacks and a few camping accessories. We'd stay here again, but only as a stop going to somewhere else

This was a nice park and very convenient. The shuttle stops right at the campground and takes you into the Falls tourist area for $6 all day pass. A nice, clean pool and hot tub were available, and not crowded. There was a small game room and playground for the kids. The sites were roomy, although there were a lot of weeds at our site that we wished someone would have cut back. One other drawback is that the park is between a railroad and Lundy's Lane, which has a lot of traffic, so it wasn't the most quiet of campgrounds. We'd stay here again since we wouldn't be spending the bulk of our time at the campground while in Niagara Falls.

I'll start by saying this campground had so many fun activities, we didn't go hiking on Saturday as we had planned to do. The amenities were great. The employees were the friendliest we've met.The campground was full, but didn't feel overcrowded. Our site backed up to the playground and mini golf area, which was great since we have kids. Our site was on the small side, and we were smack up next to a cottage, but still OK. The only problem we had was the abundance of flies. They were everywhere. One camper said she's been going here for years and never experienced a fly problem before, so we will probably give the place the benefit of the doubt and come again.

This park ok. We had to try three sites before we got a level and big enough site, but the staff were very accommodating. It was almost empty when we were there in the fall. Kids loved the playground. Restrooms were pretty clean. The biggest reason to stay here is the proximity to both Washington DC and Baltimore. We'd stay again.

We did not like this campground. As we were hooking up our "neighbor" called out of her permanent trailer to not step near her flowers! High percentage of permanent sites gave us the feeling of being outsiders here. Another "neighbor" let her dog relieve itself on the trees of our site several times. Very dusty due to the gravel roads. Sites were on the small side with no privacy.

Our site was a bit small, but it was shaded and level, and had great boulders for the kids to play on. They have a clean pool, two play areas, and a giant outdoor chess set. There was also mini golf and outdoor checkers. Lots for kids to do. It was just a short drive into the center of Gettysburg, which is why we chose this park. We would camp here again.

We loved it here and would come back again. Private and spacious sites, lots of trees and shade. Clean restrooms and snack bar area. Great pool and mini golf. The permanent site are all very nicely kept. Friendly staff. A quiet and relaxing campground!

There were plenty of activities here, such as hiking, swimming, playground, the blue rocks of course. But the other campground issues were so bad that nothing could make up for it. Dirty restrooms. Very small site with horrible sewer hook-upon our site. We smelled sewage most of the weekend. We were so close to the dump station that we had to put our awning down to accommodate a Class C that needed to dump. One night the water went off just as we were getting the kids ready for bed! So many unkempt permanent sites. Would not go back again.
