Very hilly park with tight turns and dips through heavily treed paths/roads for large rigs. The tiered sites could be problematic as mentioned in previous reviews with heavy rain. The staff was pleasant. The young fellow who lead us to the site went to get blocks for us because when auto leveling our rear (D/S) dually was an inch off the gravel. Not what you want - especially as it brakes the coach. Not sure if we'd return. It was ok for an overnight -- albeit with several challenges.
A pretty nondescript campground. Provided a convenient overnight stop on our way west. Was a little tight for our 42 ft coach but it worked going slow. No cable was tough. Warning - when leaving this campground and turning left to get back onto I-81(S) be extremely careful as there is traffic coming quickly in both directions, especially tough is the fact there is a ridge on the right which prevents seeing oncoming traffic which comes at a pretty good clip. It was not a comfortable deal leaving "left" out of this park.
We came in for the Cirque du Solei Michael Jackson tribute at the Giant Center. We've stayed at this campground 3-4 times and it always pleases us. Yes the sites are tight, however our 42' coach w/4 slides had plenty of room to get set up. The hook ups were all on a pedestal and the cable is outstanding. My wife is watching (and ordering, right now) QVC and she is glued. The sites are gravel and auto leveling was no problem (a plus) for us. We are on Woodland site 225 and it was neat that because we prepaid the day before online we were allowed to drive right to the site. The WiFi seems to work as desired. The campground is a mecca for kids and families, especially with so much Hershey activities. This is a great destination; if you play the license plate game you are sure to fill out 35-40 of the fifty states as you park in the Hershey grounds parking lot. The campground has 3 terrific pools (1 kiddie) for guests and lots of chairs. The camp store has lots of supplies both food and RV. The shuttle to the parks is a nice touch and used often. You are warned about the trains and a quarry in the immediate area so as not to be surprised or troubled. It was a non-issue from all that we saw. Well time to get ready for the show.
If you want a fabulous Motorhome Resort experience in arguably the most beautiful area of the country: Hearthside Grove is it!! I had a review on this from almost 2 years ago that I can't find, so I'm rewriting it because I want people to know about this magnificent GEM!! The ownership park offers 3-4 nights free with 3 paid days. (Something like that.) There is no pressure to buy because it's not needed. Every where you look is jaw dropping! The fountains, streams, bungalows on site, fire pits, pergolas, club house add some of the finest touches I'd venture anywhere in the country. The owner family is outstanding and welcoming hosts, along with their exceptional staff. They even have a loaner (Mercedes Benz) car if you don't have a toad to go into town. It is pointless to go into the the quality and layout of the sites because it is without a flaw. Everything is right!! The sites are all brick pavers with a flawless grass surrounds and outdoor furniture. Sites probably average 4,500 and more square ft. Our trip to Mackinack Island and the UP was breathtaking. Please visit this area of the Great Lakes if you want to see what Paradise looks like.
Disney does it right! We are huge Disney fans and have stayed all over the property since it opened in 1971. From the Boardwalk to Ft Wilderness, they all impress. We've stayed at Ft Wilderness the last three years in March. We've reconnected with old friends here and had family fly in. Needless to say the adult children and our grandchildren LOVE IT. It's all about making memories as my parents did in 1959 when we traveled across country from CT to CA to visit Disneyland, among so many other tourist sites. This park is extremely large, yet navigatable. It is expensive when staying a week but the ambiance and amenities while away the thought of that. You're in the most visited place in the world. We especially enjoyed fishing from our pontoon boat rental, complete with captain and all of the gear. We had quite a fishing tourney going on between myself, our daughter and grandsons. (Got photos of me with the biggest, 7.5 lb bass fish of the afternoon. My oldest grandson caught the most with 4. My younger grandson caught a couple and one slid off the hook.) The guide was great. I highly recommend this outing. (We could go on and on.) It was a perfect week among the shade provided by the campground trees. Very clean as you would expect and close to so many activities like the Hoopty Doo Review. The supply store had all the supplies and food you would likely need. If you are hedging on the expense: Don't! It is going to provide years and years of memories for young and not-so-young!
Philadelphia (city of brotherly love) should take notice of this jewel of a campground in our congested nation's capital. We have no options to visit family in the Levittown/Bristol area. Cherry Hill is our 1st stop on our way south and north, twice a year. They've got a great setup for all R/V types in this huge campground. Terrific pools, cafe, play areas, and shuttle to all the tourist area if DC. I'll admit some of the sites in the front of the park are tight and not spot on level, although I've never had to use blocking. The hook ups are a little confusing but work out. The cable TV and WiFi are great and this place is very professionally run. Great RV and food supplies await in the camp store and even a life sized, cut out of the standing president for photo ops is available. As grandchildren get older we'll plan a longer visit to show them the monuments and tourist sites in our capital. We love it here.
This campground is large. Lots of room with adequate room for 4 slides and 42 length M/H. Paved level surface with adequate well placed hook ups. The club house is fun with a swimming pool and restaurant (set up like you're inside a motorhome slideout). There are many activities for kids with animal petting area and even a CrackerBarrel on the (vast) premises. We filled up at the Flying J adjacent to Lazy Days and got right on I-4 with ease.
A friend of ours who camps mostly in our state of CT, mentioned this place to us. We had an occasion to use it when the now famous Halloween storm of 2011 hit us with over a foot of heavy wet snow. We lost power for 8 days. Fortunately we hadn't winterized our coach so we headed an hour south to this campground. What a pleasant surprise! This is a very nice park. Located in rural SE CT it has long level 70' gravel pull through sites. Hooks ups were placed well. Good cable TV and WiFi. Groceries were 3-4 miles down the road in the lovely shoreline town of Niantic. The owners were very nice and helpful. Many other R/Vs due to the storm were present. They had a nice pool onsite (closed for the season) and a great little fishing pond. Our grandsons enjoyed the playground and vastness of the campground. We hiked all around its up and down hills and stream. Neat place. Not a lot to do otherwise but a wonderful base to enjoy Casino, shopping, great shoreline and restaurants.
This is a fantastic park in the beautiful rolling hills of the Ohio Amish country. Needless to say the Amish style restaurants and markets are abundant and offer all of the typical fare. This is an area we will definitely return to as well as this campground. The owners have one of the nicest offices, laundry facilities, supply area, community area you could want - complete with indoor pool. Visit the 10 ft standing Grizzly bear inside (stuffed). Our site had to be changed because the auto levelers not being able to level. For a newer campground this is a surprise. Otherwise the whole facility was a delight for the week we were there. Check out the restaurant across the street. Convenient and good food. It's about a 8 mile trip into Berlin but the Amish countryside draws your interest and the trip goes quickly. Access for big rigs is very good. No problems at all.
Our favorite long term destination by far. We spend about 4-6 weeks twice a year here. Can't say enough about it. Yes it can present problems with so many different people here. However they handle all complaints very professionally. We have seen people removed from the park where needed. Some of our best friends have been made here over the last ten years. Will travel cross country with another M/H couple we've become terrific friends with. We own a golf cart and store it in the area. The shopping and attractions are second to none. We love the cement pads and all hook-ups and amenities are top shelf. Reservations need to be made 18 months in advance. We do avoid summer. Too many kids, golf carts and noise. Plus it's way HOT then.
Great overnight stop for us on the way north on I-95. Right off of the interstate far enough to eliminate road noise. Very nice pool and patio surround. The gravel sites are mostly pull throughs that hold our 42' M/H w/toad in place. It is a wide open campground - no trees. But the sites are very level and the hook-ups are right at our service bay. Cable and Wi-Fi were very good also. We will continue to use for future trips in this area. Used to stay at the Walmart years ago. Never like doing that but nothing was in the area until this park opened. Lots of shopping and restaurants within a mile and a half of the campground.
Convenient Exit #98 access to this park adjacent to I-95. A no frills park however very well managed and run. Owner is visible every time we've come in and is expanding his park. They have always accommodated our 42' coach w/toad on overnight stays allowing us to stay hooked to the toad. Hook-ups are right where you need them. Small gravel based sites that are really level. Only thing we miss is Cable. The owner mentioned how expensive it is to bring it in but hopes to down the road someday. You do hear traffic from I-95 and the trains do come through on a regular basis. Not a big deal at all to us...especially with A/C running. Great shopping 2 miles down the interstate at Exit #97.
Love this park as it convenient to all of the attractions in the heart of Amish Country. The T-sites are tricky to get into with a 42' M/H. They do have back-ins that make for easier set up. All hook-ups worked well. Sites are gravel and can contribute to it being tracked into the M/Home. My wife loves all of the shopping in the immediate area. Also very convenient to the American Music Theatre. Onsite supplies are ample and the staff is friendly and helpful. Make sure you have extra hose and possibly electric cabling as some hookups are not in most convenient spots. Lots of shade hear and if it rains heavily the grounds do not drain quickly. Grassy areas remain soaked for a while. Overall a quality campground with lots to do in the immediate area.
This campground is very picturesque. The views are spectacular and the campground is really clean and well managed. Some previous posts are truly unfair. They paint the owners in disparaging ways. We found them to be welcoming and helpful throughout our 6 day stay. We had a 50 Amp circuit go bad the first day, and it was promptly replaced with a smile. They also offered advise on watching the skies as storms that pop up are often very windy and could tear off an awning easily. Yes there are rules. And as business owners ourselves: rules are necessary in order to have order. Moving on now. The site we had was a long pull through that made for easy auto leveling. Hook-ups were convenient for our 42' M/H and they all performed well. WiFi was fast and trouble free. I was on it constantly, maintaining business matters with our staff at home. They are adding 18 sites in the lower front tier of the park: all pull throughs! This is a basic no frills park that is a destination for couples without children and noisy pets. What it lacks in frills it makes up for in quiet, peaceful and totally relaxing camping experience. It is a little out in the country though, about 7-8 miles from the east side of Intercourse. We got used to the ride and will definitely return. Thank you.
This is a large rustic park. Really great for families. Clean pool area and snack bar. Every amenity desired. The drawbacks to us were 9 miles off interstate. Very, very narrow and close to a mile entry hoping nothing big was coming at you. We had to pull over twice into low branches to allow others to get by safely. The big turn-off for us was the large amount of gravel dust everywhere. The coach and tow were caked with it. The pull-through site was 1 of 5 and next to exit. Constant dust billowing. And was a still day. Great cable and lots of shade. Would not likely stay again. Great for kids though. Typical Yogi campground.
This park sits about 6 miles off I-80. Not easy to find. It did have several pull through sites for our 41 ft coach. Gravel and grass site was fairly level. Nice lake with lots of fish to catch. No cable TV which is a nice plus to have. Open cover for dish reception. Access road is 1500 ft or more and was narrow with a few limbs to avoid. Staff was pleasant and guided us to site. Has a small camp store. Was ok for an overnight: pleasant and serene. Would probably return for an overnight only.
I am ranking this park purely from the standpoint that I booked it for. It totally met "my" needs! That being a fun place to take my 3 grandsons (7,9 & 11) on a guy's camping trip. It happened to be the maiden voyage in my new 40' plus M/Home in mid July 09 (post says Nov but had to fiddle w/dates to get post in). My wife took our 2 granddaughters and our oldest daughter on a girls trip to Cape Cod. The boys were really excited to be with me in the new M/H. The activities were boundless. I was really impressed with the staff and how they got so into the scheduled activities that occurred throughout the day. Very orderly, patient and inviting to all of the kids. The boys really loved the great pools, arcade, moon bounce, snack bar and athletic fields. That was exactly what I signed up for! They were so tired at night that they slept until 8:30 or so each morning. They asked if we could come back again? So this summer I have reservations for Grammy & our youngest granddaughter to join us. I even wrote a book about the experience. The boys said it was the best place they could ever hope to go to!! If there were any negatives. I certainly didn't see them. I was too wrapped up in being with my grandsons. Grandfathers take notice!
We were visiting friends in the area so this park was convenient. Aside from being located at the intersection of I-40 & I-26 it is a fairly nondescript campground. We were on the lower portion right next to the road in a pull through which was long enough for even our guests to park in the same strip. But the road noise and glare of the headlights at night left something to be desired. Up on the hill near the office seems to be the better option - if we were to return. OK overall, but that's about it. Asheville is very nice with lots to do. You can't beat the mountain scenery and fresh air.
This is one of our most convenient stops on the way to SC from CT. It is right off I-95 (exit 98) in both directions. The owners are so accommodating. They lead you to your site on their bicycle. The sites are gravel dust. Nice and level and roomy enough. The inner road can get a little dusty during dry weather with people going in and out. Bring a rug/mat for your entry door to keep out gravel. Great outlet shopping at exit 97! Some complain about the trains being near and loud. We love the trains. And have you ever camped and not found that you could hear trains along the east coast? Kids would have little to do here. But it is a handy stop with nice hosts.
This is really not the campground for us. It was a complete mud hole. There were wild turkeys running around. The water connection had algae growing on the faucet collar - I didn't bother. We only hooked up the electric and closed the curtains for the night. Got up and left first thing. The curious thing for us was that we stayed here in 2004 or 05 and had the same experience. I vowed we'd never stay again. However, we needed a night over in a campground, and New Jersey doesn't have much to accommodate larger motorhomes off of the turnpike. Figured they might have improved! To no avail. Sorry!
Absolutely beautiful park with brick pavers on large sites. Many privately owned. Smaller resort with lush landscaping and great access to restaurants galore and stores. White sand beaches on Anna Maria Island and turquoise water!! We plan to return annually. They have a great coach detail-er named Ricky. Ask for his card. Although the inner roads are tight for a 40' rig our escort was very helpful helpful and saw to it that we got backed in with no problem. Hook ups right at service bay door. Nice ice cream parlor across the (busy) street. Road noise was not a problem for us on site. Great job on the remodeling of the park. Deserves all of the accolades it gets.
If you want ocean front this is it! We were right on top of the seawall. From our coach front window all you could see: was the sea. It was like being on a ship. The beach is about ten feet below down a flight of stairs. The sites are extremely close. Slide to awning close. The hook-ups are positioned along the seawall and they alternate the coaches head first and back in. I was fortunate to have an extra 30' 50Amp extension cord or I would have had to purchase one (not cheap) if I could find one. Water run and cable are long runs so be prepared. Daytona (25 mi.) and shopping (1-2 mi.) were close by. Friendly people who seem to return year after year.
We agree with all of the positives posted here. When driving a 40-42' diesel pusher it is important for us to have adequate clearance when accessing parks from highway to campground. This is certainly the case here. The owner himself drives a large d/p and it shows in the design of this park. The level cement pads are always a plus. The cement pad in the patio area is only large enough for a picnic table. Again what we appreciate is the ease of accessing and setting up on the site. No problems here. We stayed here on the way to and from FL. Our next visit will be for a longer stay to see the islands and surrounding area. And it's primarily because of the draw to this (resort feel) facility. Marble floors and tile throughout the showers and baths. The cleanest we've ever seen. The pool is kidney shaped with nice patio sets and shaded overhangs on the adjoining building. Hook-ups were all placed right at the service bay of our motorhome. No extra hoses and electric cords needed here. If you are traveling with young kids they will be hampered some with activities as we did not see much for them. This place will be our annual stop when coming through this area again. Just what we expect and hope to find when pulling in for a good nights rest in a quality campground/resort. This place wont be a secret for long!!
