Very accommodating owners! Park was to have closed on Oct 15, but a glitch in the reservation system kept allowing reservations, so owners honored them. Beautifully wooded campground - difficult to see the sky from some sites, and we were there in the fall. Roads kind of narrow and some tight turns, but not a big problem if you're careful. Our site was a vary large pull-through. Located just a couple miles off the NY Thruway, and all roads to campground are good. The ONLY downside here, as with a growing number of campgrounds, was price. While $49 for a site is becoming more the norm, it was "off-season." I would have expected a slight reduction. Also, we had another couple with ud and the charge was $10 for each "extra person." per night. That was an extra $40. So, total for two nights was $138.00. A bit much considering off-season and very little use of the facilities. But would we revisit - definitely!

Main "good" features about this campground are its location (close to Wildwood and to Cape May) and the environment. Almost all sites are shaded. However, the roads are narrow and some of the sites are almost impossible to get into. (I watched one group take out a fence to be able to swing a trailer into a site - trailer about 26 feet with crew cab pickup/short bed.) Sites do have convenient hookups and all have concrete pads next to the sand/gravel parking area. Some of the wooden picnic tables looked a little tired. A ton of seasonal campers here, mostly with park model setups. That means golf carts flying eveywhere around this rather large campground. Enforcement of rules seemed selective. Cars were stopped for going wrong way on one-way drives, but golf carts zoomed effortlessly. I'd give this place ahigher rating if: 1) It wasn't so high-priced, 2) some of the sites were reconfigured for easier access, and 3) the staff was more friendly.

Not only one of the best KOA's we've visited, one of the best campgrounds overall. Campground is a bit hilly, but all sites very level. Staff will assist you in parking. Lots of mature trees. Plenty of shrubbery and lots of rocks/boulders = very scenic grounds. No major roads nearby so nights were very quiet. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful with guidance to local area. Dog park was fantastic! - Nicer than many kids' parks! Located about 10 - 15 minutes outside of Gettysburg, but well worth the drive. Not many campgrounds on my "be sure to re-visit" list, but this is one of them!

Very nice and quiet campground. Definitely family oriented. Our only complaint was pricing. We stayed two nights at full price. That's to be expected, but the prices are high for the area and this was not a holiday weekend. We asked for a late checkout on Sunday. We got an extra two hours for $20, payable in advance. When we were getting ready to leave we had a problem getting one of the stabilizing jacks on our rig to retract. We called for roadside assistance, but by the time we got a call back, it was past 2 PM. We went to the office to let them know what was going on. The campground was practically empty by this time of day. Only a few seasonal sites were occupied and a few workcampers remained. They charged us for another whole night because we were there past the checkout time! Not a very consumer friendly park policy. That being said, every one of the workcampers we met were great. In fact, it was one of them that came to our assistance and helped get our jack retracted. We were out of the campground by just a little after 3 PM, but we paid for another whole night. It's a shame: nice campground, but pricing policy will keep us away. Sad way to do business in times like this.
