We really liked this campground and wanted to score it higher, but because of them not having sewer, they need to make accommodations to the people who don't have big holding tanks. They do pump you out every 3 days for free, but I had to go ask them to do it, some people they automatically did it. They don't have a wash sink for the tent campers and smaller RV's to wash dishes. They need ventilation in the bathrooms, it became very hot in there on warm days. You shouldn't walk through sites, but there is no pathway in the middle to get to the showers which both buildings are on the other side of all the pull throughs. Had to walk a long way around to get to showers. Showers and bathrooms were very clean. Wi-Fi worked pretty well and cable TV worked well. AT&T service was fine. Close to many of the attractions in the area. Pool was nice and they had plenty of chairs. Catered mainly to Class A's and big 5th wheels, but there was a mix of smaller trailers and some tents. Tons of room for the big rigs to maneuver. Sites themselves were pretty deep and the back ins had a lot of room on the sides. Pull throughs were long but smaller on the sides. Small store on site. Would definitely come back again.

Love staying at Fort Wilderness, always clean and service is good. Plenty of activities within the Fort and there are obviously the parks. Pool is open til 10PM and they also have the campfire with Chip & Dale each night with a movie. It is higher than most campgrounds, but it is Disney and still cheaper than a hotel on property and I have paid high prices in places in the Northeast that don't come close. Stayed in 1300 Premium loop and really liked the area. Definitely will be back.

Stayed for an overnight stop on our way home from Florida, dirt roads and dirt sites. Warned to stay off grass because it had rained and we would get stuck. Charged us for two children even though we were there just overnight and were coming in late and leaving next morning, total 8 hours. Bathrooms/showers were dated but clean. Pretty level, pull throughs were long enough for trailer and tow vehicle. Less than a mile off 95, heard little traffic noise. Would stay here again if needed.

Second time here and was better than the first. Stayed at Pickerel Point Campground with full hookups. Bathrooms and showers were spotless and cleaned daily. No AT&T reception in the area, picked up a few OTA television channels and radio reception was fine. Nice beach at the point with shallow water for smaller children. power and water pressure were fine. Roads are paved and the sites are a mix of gravel and grass. A little off kilter but just used one set of levelers and all was well. Plenty of room on the site for the kids to play. Roads are very busy with walkers, runners and bikes.
Date of Stay: August, 2015
Site and roads are mostly dirt, loops are very wooded, may be too much since the trees held in the heat, but definitely plenty of shade. Lots of activities, trails and things to do in park. Water park was $5 per person and my children had a fun time. Cell phone service was fine, didn't try TV. Some sites were good size, some were smaller. My complaints are no wash station for dishes, and no alcove in shower to change, just a commmon area. Bathrooms and showers were clean.
Date of Stay: June, 2015
Showers/bathrooms were very clean and cleaned regularly. Showers were a good size and water pressure and temp were good. Grounds were pretty much clean, but weeds and grass needed to be cut. Price is a bit high for what you get and sites are close to each other. There was a boxelder bug infestation in and around our site and that was the big turnoff. I am still finding them on the outside of my camper.

Price is including Good Sam discount and $2 cash discount. The campground is an average wooded campground. Lots of seasonal sites and the transient sites are near the road and mostly all pull through. Not a a lot of road noise was heard. Roads are tight, but big rigs managed to get through. Wi-Fi was strong and cell reception was good (AT&T). Very clean bathrooms and showers. Store was pretty well stocked, lots of camping t-shirts for purchase. They also have tent area at the top the of the campground. Lots to do in the area and would revisit if in the area. Easy on and off of I-80 and I-476.

This park is tough to grade. We stayed in the wooded sites on Pine Parkway which were very secluded and woodsy. The first problem occurred when the woman told me how to get to my site and it was the wrong way since it was on the opposite angle which I specifically asked her, so I ended up driving around the trails and I do mean trails with my 27' trailer and barely making it through to be facing the correct way to back in properly. Secondly the bathrooms need updating,and there were a ton of bugs in them, but they were cleaned on a regular basis. Dish wash sink outside bathroom was filthy and never cleaned. Third the pricing is high for what you get, $45 for 2 people, than each child between 3-17 is $5 a night, etc. Playground was newer, streams were nice for the kids to explore, room for big rigs up the hill, tents and pop-ups would be good in the wooded sites. Also have to buy your wood there which was $5.25 a bundle. We would come back if interested in something in the area.

We stayed in the Pickerel Point campground area and had a full hookup site. Roads were paved and sites were gravel. Showers and bathrooms were very clean and cleaned daily, also had outside wash sinks for dishes. Rangers made rounds every so often. Beach was very nice and had sand toys for the kids to play with during the weekend. Site we had said it would fit up to a 40' motorhome, but it was on a grade coming off the road. Site was pretty level side to side. AT&T service was pretty much nonexistent. No over the air channels were found for TV. There are also boat rentals on the other side of the lake and there are plenty of trails for the avid hiker. No playground in this area as of now, but they were taking donations at the office to add one. Very nice walk-in tent sites on the lake and nice programs on the weekends for the kids in the amphitheater. We will definitely be back!

All around nice park. Very clean bathrooms and showers, showers are 25 cents per 5 minutes. Sites are a mixture of sand, dirt, and grass. Lots of trees and most spots are shady. They have Wi-Fi, but you need a code for a free day of access. Nice lake swim area and very nice pool, but no chairs, so bring your own. Also have a fishing lake. A lot of seasonals, but mainly in one area. They do allow golf carts for their seasonal renters. Store was pretty well stocked but it was end of season. Make sure your site is clean, there is a neighborhood skunk that roams at night and I met him while sitting around the fire at night. Didn't get sprayed, but he seemed to be used to people so beware. Close to most shore areas (Wildwoods, Cape May, Avalon). Would stay here again.

Stayed here this past weekend and really enjoyed the surroundings. Grounds were spotless, and the sites were a decent size. We were along the stream, in a E/W/S site, and they were a little close, but very deep, so you still had room to spread out. There is a little bit for every kind of camping from tent to diesel pushers. Showers and bathrooms were very clean, and people were constantly cleaning. They do have a shuttle to the amusement park, but we decided to drive. Cellular use was fine. They also built a new office at the entrance and have a very well stocked store, and prices were reasonable; ice was $2.00 a bag. People were friendly and helpful, and security was present. Stream is stocked with trout. Only problem was that the playground needs to be upgraded. We will definitely be back here in the future.

A very nice state park. Most sites are very large and there are some on the water or with a view. We stayed in the 200 loop which had good shade and electric. Very accessible for big rigs. Had wash sink in laundry room for dishes, and also clean, newer restrooms and showers. Need to cut vegetation along Lake Ontario, really blocks the breeze. Most sites people had blocks for leveling. Stayed quiet at night even during weekend nights, and security patrolled during the weekend. Has a camp store and firewood, $5 a bundle. Close to Niagara Falls and you get free parking and entrance to other state parks if you stay here. Be careful with cell phone use, since you are close to Canada, your cell may roam to a Canadian tower and you will be charged fees. We will definitely stay here again.

Rate was with Good Sam discount, they also give discounts for AAA, active duty military, law enforcement, or Fire/EMS. Most of the sites and roads are gravel, that are fairly level. Boundaries are spray painted, but it was a slower weekend, so there was a site between each occupied site except on the creek. Lots of shade in the back sites, they also have field sites out in the sun, and tent sites in their own area. Saw all sizes and shapes of trailers to Class A diesels. Had lots of activities for the families, plus they have a nice play field, and playground. Bathrooms and showers were clean and always being cleaned. Also have a dish wash sink outside the bathrooms which is a plus. Good camp store with Gettysburg souvenirs, hiking sticks, RV parts and accessories, etc. Firewood prices weren't bad, 20 pieces for $10 for the loose wood (not hardwood), or 2 bags for $11.50. Will definitely stay here again.
Date of Stay: November, 2011
Can't say anything bad about Fort Wilderness. Clean showers and bathrooms, good transportation, good sites and can accommodate most rigs, Has overflow parking lot for trailers. Lots of activities including pony rides for the kids, Segway tours, trail rides, canoe & bike rentals plus campfire and movie each night with Chip & Dale. Will definitely be back and can't wait to get home again.

Another good experience here. Sites are shaded and nicely set up. Quiet area, with little traffic on the road running along campground. Owners are welcoming and the bathrooms are clean. A lot of seasonals, and no sewer at the sites, but they do have a dump station. Nice playground, game room and decently stocked store, has pamphlets for area attractions. Rained hard the first night and had minimal puddling. Sites are a mix of gravel, dirt and grass. Will stay here again.
