This is one of the best campgrounds we have ever stayed at, and we have been camping for 35 years. The staff, everyone without exception, was very helpful, patient, friendly and kind. We stayed at a site with electric and water two rows back from the water, and still had nice views. Our site was grassy and well kept. Next year, however, we will try to get a waterfront or clear water view site as the views are spectacular here. We learned on this trip that we could get along quite well without a sewer hookup as there is a pumping service and an easy access dump station. I do not recommend a full hookup site as there is no view from any of those sites. If you want to swim in the bay, bring along rubber shoes because of the stones and rocks. The water is lovely and not too cold in August. There is a free bus service throughout the area that stops at the campground. If there is anything I would suggest to make our stay a little nicer, it is that the managers might consider restricting the use of tents in addition to RV's on RV sites. Nowadays, "tent" seems to mean anything from a patio covering to a shelter-type arrangement, and these cut off the views of the RV sites in rows that are not right on the water. Also, they might consider having vehicles with RVs park in a specially provided lot to keep the campsites from blocking the views. My .02. But we loved it here despite that, and we hope to return next year! We came without a reservation this year, but I suggest reserving as far in advance as possible to get the best sites. They are worth the money.

Rate is for full hookups. This campground is quite nice for an overnight. Easy in, easy out. Office help was okay but not overly friendly. Wi Fi was sporadic so not useful. I don't usually mention wifi in reviews but have noticed improving wifi at some campgrounds. Wifi here needs work. We will probably stay here on our next trip to the Midwest as it is one of the few places with cable.

This is among the nicest small campgrounds that we have ever visited. We stayed overnight but would have enjoyed staying longer if our schedule had allowed it. It is the only campground where we have had excellent internet service to the point where we were able to watch live streaming Fox News on our laptop. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. It has been raining constantly here, but we hope to walk around before we leave to check out the canal that runs alongside the campground where canoes and kayaks are available for use. We loved it here and hope to stay again.

This is a gorgeous campground! We only wish that we lived closer so that we could camp here more often. The mosquito issue cited by earlier reviews was only a temporary phenomenon caused by residue from last year's flooding in NY and a mild winter. Thus an early summer problem. But there is not a problem now. I really mind mosquito so almost did not stay here but decided to give it a try on a trip to a nearby shrine. We are so glad we did as we have full hookups and cable and a beautiful view of the Mohawk River as well as a gentle breeze as I write this outside. Many trees but not too many. Very kind owners and friendly seasonals. You would not know the seasonal sites are there as there is NO JUNK anywhere. I highly recommend this place and will return.

We visited this park to decide whether to camp here later on when we visit Washington, DC, but we have not yet actually camped here. However, I wanted to correct the previous review as Cherry Hill does have Cable, and potential campers would be turned away by that mistake in the posting. This is a very lovely park and deserves all of the 10's it has received. I am not connected with the park in anyway, just felt bad about the Cable mistake as we try to avoid parks without cable ourselves.

We stayed here as part of an RV rally so I do not know the rate we paid. Our cost for three days was all-inclusive, but I am guessing that our host probably paid about $34 per site for full hookups. This campground was one that we definitely will return to. Although it is quite basic in facilities, it was in a lovely location and within walking distance of many restaurants and shops. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. We will return on our own later this summer. The campground is quiet and relaxing but also allows for easy access to the charming town of Intercourse in the very heart of the Amish heartland.

We have just returned from our first visit to this campground/resort. How anyone could give this place anything but the very highest rating is beyond our comprehension. It was, by far, the nicest campground that we have ever stayed at, and we have been camping from more than 30 years. It is a resort, but not the commercialized type that parks one RV next to another in a row. The sites are large, shaded, private and incredibly well designed. The swimming pools were beautiful, and there was a very nice spa. This is THE place for young families although we are older. Kids seem to love it there. We are older folks but took great pleasure in watching the happy young families. There is a wonderful eatery where you can get breakfast for $3 to $5. Hamburgers, hot dogs, fries, ice cream cones are all very reasonably priced. The grounds are magnificent and well groomed. We can vouch for the fact that the photos on their website are true to life; it really is that pretty! We will go back to this campground every chance we get. We can't say enough for the grounds, the sites and especially the staff. Other campgrounds pale in comparison with this. Go there.

This park was not bad, but also not one that I am likely to return to. The wi-f reception was pretty bad, and the cell reception not the best although I was able to make and receive calls most of the time. The campground staff people were very nice and very helpful, and everything we used was clean. However, I returned home with about 25 mosquito bites incurred while sitting around our campfire. They have a small pond covered with a kind of film so it was not too appealing. It is also not terribly convenient to Washington, DC, more than an hour away by car.
