After 3 years of camping at various campgrounds, we decided to try a seasonal site this year at this campground. It has been a wonderful experience and we plan to renew our contract for next year. The family that runs this campground makes you feel like family and the long term seasonal campers went out of their way to make you feel welcome. Planned activities are fun. This campground is close to all local attractions from Hershey to Lancaster to Adamstown. What a find in Pennsylvania!
First visit to this park for a Halloween weekend and was not disappointed. We have always found the campground staff to be friendly and helpful and this time was no different. Campgrounds are kept in great shape. Only thing that kept me from giving them a "10" this time was they only had firewood available in bags ($7.50/bag). They have strict restrictions about bringing firewood into the campground.
This is our first visit to this campground and we were pleasantly surprised. The staff is very helpful and friendly. What a pleasure to be able to see the mountains from your campsite. Sites were well spaced apart and campground is well maintained. We will definitely visit again.
Friendly and accommodating owners. Our site was at the lower half of the campground near the lake. Nice pool and jumping pillow. Arcade and shower facilities could use some TLC. A few of the "seasonal" need to be cleaned up. Two issues you should know about - (1) the flies are unbelievable (made it impossible to enjoy a meal outside), and (2) we had a pretty intense rain storm that created a mudslide down the hill directly behind us. Our RV moved slightly which was a little unsettling. Owners did repair the roads the day after the storm.
We have stayed here before and were not going to return due to the changes in the rates. Addition of waterpark will be a plus this year, but the rates are a real downer. After reviewing other posts regarding the owners, in the three years that we have been camping here we have never experienced this or witnessed it. The entire family has always been friendly and gone out of their way to be helpful. Our only disappointment this time was the planned activity. The activity staff was friendly; however, the activity was impossible (building a model car and painting it) so that no one finished the activity, and left frustrated. Staff sold the items for the activity and then pretty much ignored the children involved, and hid in a storage room. We do like this campground and we will make every attempt to return this year.
I think we found the perfect time to visit this campground. (Before summer vacations start and on a weekend that there were no real special events.) Very quiet and enjoyed ourselves. Be careful, many of the spots are very tight to back into especially with a fifth wheel. During peak months and special events, this campground is full of unsupervised children and too many golf carts.
Our second visit to this campground. Enjoyed our visit again. Family run campground. We have stored our travel trailer here in the winter months. Family took advantage of the paintball fields which are very close and run by the family. Campstore is great..everything you need. Very family oriented and always pleased with the other campers we meet. Only disappointed this trip was that the "Bird Man" did not show for the planned show. We will be back!
Close to Hershey Park and the Pioneer Coal Mine. We enjoyed our stay and a very reasonable rate. Our site was stream side. Very nice campstore but doubles as a convenience store and is open and used mainly by the public. Store did not have discounted Hershey Park tickets available as promised and we were not able to canoe due to the water level. Only real complaint was the number of seasonal sites in the park that were not well kept and seemed to be "homes". We would visit again but the park does need some TLC.
Nice quiet campground close to all attractions in Lancaster and Strasburg. Enjoyed our stay. Campground does have a great deal of seasonal campers which some are in need of being cleaned up. Roads are narrow and a little difficult to maneuver around. Camp store has everything you might need plus a few items. We will visit again!
If you like being within 20 feet of loud trains this is the place for you. A wooded or shaded site equaled two almost dead trees in a very tight spot. Best thing is .. is this campground is within minutes of every attraction in Williamsburg. So if you are looking for a place to "just park and sleep" and you are a sound sleeper this might be for you. We won't be back. Pictures on website were very misleading!
Very disappointed. While we realized that this weekend was a Halloween celebration (we have two children), we were unprepared for the large number of pre-teens and teens speeding around the campground on golf carts. Little to no supervision of children on bikes and in the roadways made it difficult to stroll the campground to enjoy the holiday decorations or leave temporarily to enjoy Ocean City. Very small sites. Backing into site was extremely difficult. Maybe just a bad weekend but I won't be visiting again.
