Date of Stay: September, 2008
This is our second visit in as many years. The campground has all the aspects of a five star RV resort. The location is the perfect reason for staying. There are many close sight seeing places to visit. Hershey Park. Indian Echo Caverns. Down Hershey has many local restaurants with delicious menus. Bass Pro Shops has a retail store with 30 minutes. Cabelas retail store is 45 minutes from the grounds. The campground is very well maintained, and the staff is very friendly. Two things visitors must know. There is an active railroad track nearby. You will hear trains all hours of the day. The newest section of the grounds is close to the highway, but the noise level is not bad. Hershey High Meadow is a great campground.

Our visit was only to be only 5 nights at first, but after the fourth night we opted for a sixth night stay. The reseption desk was very helpful in furthering our stay. As it turns out the site we were on was availible for another night. With more plans set to take place this fall, one of which is a new camp store and pavillon, we immediately choose to reserve a site for next year. All of the sites were wide and flat. My only complaint was the height of the sewer hookup. The sewer pipe came with a threaded coupling, which made it nice, but the pipe itself was almost eight inches out of the ground. It won't be a problem for those with a sewer hose support, but those with out will spend time walking the hose to empty it. My suggestion is to take plenty of wood blocks to raise the hose to a better drain level. The pool was a modest size but we never encountered a over flow of people, even at the busy times of the day. The temporary camp store was small but still complete with all that was needed. A privately owned jet ski rental business was right there by the fishing pier. The rates are very reasonable. Fishing from the pier was fun. Take you fishing poles with you. There are flounder in the area, and crabbing is an option as well. During low tide collecting live clams was an easy prospect. Access to the grounds were via Eagles Nest Road. The road has several sharp turns. Take you time. The regional airport next to the grounds was not an issue at all. In fact it made for some great pictures. Most of the flights were during the day. I could count on one hand the number of take offs during the evening. Anyone traveling south bond to Berlin from all points north. I would suggest exiting Route 113 onto Route 50 towards Ocean City. The turn right onto Route 611 to Eagles Nest Road. All in all our first experience at Castaways RV Resort was excellent. I highly suggest anyone not lucky enough to get a site and the popular Frontier Town campground, that you give this new and improved Castaways a look and reserve a spot for a stay. My guess is this campground will be a true gem in the future.

We have stayed here a total of 5 times in as many years. We will continue to stay at this campground until we can't travel anymore. After you stay here. All other campgrounds you visit will be compared to Ocean Lakes. It's that nice.
