Excellent park. We were looking for a place to crab, fish and clam. This was perfect. Sites were good size. Boat was a short walk to their marina. Park was clean, as was the pool. Water, electric, and sewer easily accessed. With 4 adults and 2 children it would have helped to be able to use the park's restrooms. Sign said members only, you needed a key or code. We found out, later, that all you needed was to ask and they would have gave you one.

2nd time here. You can't beat the location. Pool, Crystal clear. Bathhouses and bathroom, very clean. Water, Electric (30amp) and sewer, Easy to reach. First night there the bugs weren't a problem. They got bad after that. Unlike the last time there, they weren't bad at all during the day, just at night. Some of the transient sites might be a bit tough for a big rig, but accessible. As the others have said, they are moving forward with this campground. The owners/management are very friendly,along with the seasonal. A very good restaurant, near by, is the Oyster Creek Inn. It is right by the Smithville Inn, off of RT 9, on Moss Creek Road.

We camped here in Nov. to see the Christmas Lights and park. Nice, well kept campground. Staff, friendly and helpful. Great location to visit the area. We had site 104 Meadow View. Nice size site, big rig friendly, with hook ups in good location. The train noise at night was terrible. It ran about every 20 minutes at night. Woodlands area seemed that the sites were on top of each other. Accessible for the big rig as well, with care. Also full hook up area. The tenting area looked like it would work well. You would get to hear a brook at night, not a train. Shuttle buses ran nonstop to and from Hershey Park. Wi-Fi was free and service good. Campground looks like it would be very busy in the summer. We would return again. Price reflects winter rates, luckily the water was still on.

The previous reviews weren't to good, so we didn't expect much, We were not disappointed. I don't believe they had any activities there. We used it for a base camp to see the area. For that it was perfect, right in the middle of everything. They have made improvements. Looks like a new office and meeting room, with the lounge in the same building. Showers were also in there. The sites were all pull thru, big enough for larger motor homes and trailers. Water, electric and sewer were easily accessible. A few branches could have been pruned. No fire ring, no table. The office personnel were very friendly and helpful. When we asked for a table they said when the help comes in they would take care of it or we could just take one off an unused site. We used ROD and would come back again just for the location.

We stayed there in Dec. They where in their winter mode. We had a site right on the river with water, electric and sewerage. It looks like the campground could get a little tight when the busy season comes along. Judging by how the sites where laid out. Big rigs should have no problem with the pull thru's. They are in the front on black top. There are about 5 or 6 along the river that a big rig could get into. the owners seemed very friendly and willing to help. I never saw them, just talked over the phone. They are only there for a few hours a day during the winter. We where out gallivanting. The campground is nestled right in the middle of all the attractions. This made it perfect for us. We will comeback for sure. There is to much to see and do there in just a weekend. It would be good for a base camp to cruise the area. There where only three other campers there while we where there. Winter's here.

We have been coming here for 8 years now. We can't say enough good things about this place. Yes it is a little expensive, but in my opinion very well worth it. I stay on z lane, water front. I can park my boat right behind my trailer. That saves me $27 a night for a boat slip. The water park is free for campers, knock off another 20 bucks a day per person. There is a charge for people that don't stay here. They always have entertainment. Fishing and crabbing off the pier. Restaurant in the park, food is good. Camp store has just about everything you could ask for or need. Golf carts do abound, but the place is so huge you need one to get around unless you want to use your car. I have seen security stop a few younger kids driving them. The Wild West show is fun for all. We took my 2-year old grandson, he had a blast. We will be back.

Great park. You are on an island. It has it's own marina with brand new docks. Easy access launch ramp. Fuel and bait. Roads are all paved, easy for the big buses and trailers to get around. Electric, water and sewer are where they should be. Only one loop has full hook-ups. The rest have water and electric or no hookups. We have been there a few times. The water is crystal clear. Traveling in and out of all the islands is amazing. Fishing is great. I would go back on a heart beat.

I've been coming here for a few years. Seen the worst, but getting better. New owners are hard at work. They have put new sites in, overlooking a small lake, upgraded electric, put winter water on some sites and upgraded the sewer system. They have wooded and sunny sites. they have pull-thru's, and sites for the big rigs. most of the sites on are the large size. Roads are easy to make your way through. On weekends they have entertainment, sometime dinners and theme parties. They do have a lot of seasonal, but from what I have seen, they are all very friendly and willing to help out if you need it. On the down side. It still needs more work. Some of the seasonal sites need to be cleaned up a bit better. Most of the sites are well kept. It should have a bath house by the tenting area. Although the roads are alright they could be fixed a bit better. it is located in a secluded area. As the other posters stated follow the directions they give you.

This a great park. From tent camping to full hook-ups. It is located on an island half way into Canada from the 1000 Island Bridge. It has two marinas, swimming in the river, and a small store. The sites are huge. They have only one loop with full hookups, that has only57 sites. It will fill up quickly. For someone that is into fishing the area is the Smallmouth Bass capital. Musky, Walleye, Northern Pike are also around. Within a short distance, you can get on a tour boat and see the thousand islands up close. The name of the area is actually called 1000 Islands on the St. Lawrance River.
