If you like extremely loud music that continues to after mid-night and makes sleep or even conversations in most of this campground impossible, then this RV Park is the place for you. Don’t consider asking the campground owner to ensure the Tiki Bar music is played at a sane level, we were told he was the one actually playing music/karaoke and everyone’s request for volume reductions were rudely ignored. This music was so loud the Tiki Bar was empty at 9:30pm on Saturday night, but the deafening levels of possibly the worlds worst music selections still continued for hours longer. Getting in and out of this RV Park is extremely dangerous due to the traffic patterns and flow especially for larger rigs. The sites were well spaced and some had trees, but navigation on the narrow roads in the campground was very difficult for our longer fifth wheel. All sites had grass (no gravel) which was nice, but it was very difficult for us to actually get out of our site the day we left due to no traction on the grass in the rain. Most rigs were newer, some are permanent and there are work crew campers also. This is a 1950s RV Campground that shows it’s age everywhere. Nothing is terrible, just worn. The bath and showers were adequate, but all were in need of a full face lift and more frequent cleaning. No sites had garbage containers! We would suggest name change for this RV Park. Something like the “Southern Discomfort RV Resort.” We will never go back there and have never seen such a total lack of respect for customers at any RV Park before.

We stayed there during the fall foliage. The staff were nice and helpful. I scouted out the first site they recommended and it was too tight/small for our longer 5th wheel so we ended up in the new area which was was like parking in a football field (no mature trees). The sites were grass and we had some difficulty getting traction the day we left due to an overnight rain. One of the highlights of staying there was the Millersburg Ferry that made trips across and back the river every hour or so. Prices were modest, but well worth it to see the foliage from the middle of the river. Do not be concerned about the apparent initial look of the Ferry itself...it is near new and the water is only 3 feet or so deep. The main part of this campground is older, but does not show the severe wear like some. Many of the sites in this area are occupied by permanent campers/rigs which does have the advantage of fewer people in the campground on weekdays. The sites in this part of the campground are tight and parking larger rigs/5th wheels there will have to be planned with a walk through just to make sure. The area in this part of Pennsylvania/Perry County is beautiful and we enjoyed driving the back roads. We would return to this campground, but there are others in Perry County with 20 miles of this one that would be our first choices.

This campground is one of the best in this area and one of the nicest we have ever stayed. Well kept, caring owners, clean and quiet. Sites are on multiple levels due to hills/flat areas in the campground. Which we really liked. Photos on their website do not do it justice. We stayed here for three days and could not ask for a better RV experience. We have a longer fifth wheel and the site options we had for our stay were explained and there were no surprises when we checked each one. During the second day we began to realize staying here was no just an RV experience. It was also like a great vacation. Another plus is this campground is not on a main road. Actually: not even close to one which so there was no traffic noise. The best. Period.
