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.

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.

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 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.

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 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.
