Date of Stay: July, 2015
Stayed over a weekend in mid-July. Park as crowded as expected, but facilities and staff could handle the load. Loads of stuff to do for the small fry - lakefront beach, outdoor pool with kiddie area, indoor pool with hot tubs (one designated for the kids, other for adults), nightly firetruck ride (on an actual REO Speedwagon!), DJ on Sat night. Went up Coolbaugh Rd from the town of Marshall's Creek, as the Marshall's Creek Rd (normal route up from Rt 80) was closed for bridge repair, no problems getting up there with our 28' travel trailer... Definitely would stay again.

Beautiful RV park located not far off Rt. 78 near Allentown PA. We had a very nice streamfront site, ground was level and sites were not as packed together as some other places we've been to. Bathrooms and showers were very clean, there were two nice playgrounds to keep our 3yo busy, as well as a mini-golf set up by the stream. The folks who ran the place were friendly as well. We plan to come back in the future when we want to visit this area of PA.

Camped here over the 4th of July weekend. Picked this place based on the reviews on this site; the prior reviews seem accurate. Hilly campground, but generally level sites. Staff was consistently very courteous, which is a testament considering it was no doubt one of their biggest weekends. Bathhouse was clean enough, plenty of hot water the time I used the showers. Drawbacks for me was sites were packed close together, Wi-Fi was weak, and pool area has no shade available. Still, would definitely recommend, and stay here again.

We camped here as a part of the Spring Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival, where we paid $30/night (Thurs/Fri/Sat, Sun night was free) to camp along with a $125 per adult weekend festival ticket. Not sure how much it would be to just camp here when it wasn't festival time. Anyways, we love the grounds, and the bathhouse near where we camped ("Post 3" site) was sparkling clean, even during the height of the festival. The grounds were very clean, grass mowed acceptably, etc. Our three year old loved the "Ark" ship playground and also the sand pit near the stage (usually a volleyball court, but converted to a giant sandbox with many beach toys during the festival.) The playground equipment however is sparse, and old (although he still loved the swings and see-saws.) Did not play mini-golf, but it looked impressive (it's a mini-mountian with the holes interspersed around the hill.) Did not interact with the staff much, but they all seemed pretty friendly (lots of waves and smiles.) Would definitely consider camping here again if we were in the area.

Nice place in the hills of Berks County, not too far off the PA turnpike. Nice wooded sites, things were generally clean and neat. Seasonals are mixed in with weekender sites, so less of an "us & them" feeling. Nice clean pools (adult & kiddie), pool bathrooms decent, but didn't use CG bathhouse. Good cell phone reception (AT&T) but Wi-Fi only at the lodge. Would definitely stay here again. (In fact, already planning to.)

Wow, what a nice little campground! There's one loop for weekenders, the other two loops are for seasonal; all the seasonals we met were very friendly. We had a site by the nice playground on the edge of the rally field, which also has a full basketball court, shuffleboard court, and plenty of room for football, soccer, etc. The bathrooms are the cleanest I've ever experienced in all my years of camping! Plenty of hot water in the showers, but oddly enough no hot water in the men's bathroom sinks. Campground is located in a nice hilly area, some short grades to pull up to get there but nothing too bad. There's a beautiful creek that you can walk down to from the campground (Beaver Valley creek) that was great fun for my 2-year-old to explore. Looks like it may be good for trout fishing (not a fisherman myself, so couldn't really say). We would absolutely stay here again, and I'd even consider going seasonal here if they had a good site available.

We stayed here since we could not get in to the Spruce Run Rec Area campgrounds, This site is about 10 minutes away, up on top of a hill. You must drive up some steep grades to get to the campsite. The sites are "primitive", no water, elecricity, etc. The site itself is pretty enough, with the campsites all bordering a large grassy field. Be warned, there's a fair amount of poison ivy here and there (especially around the small playground, which our 2-year-old was magnetically attracted to). The bath house was fairly disgusting; there are pit toilets and a couple of showers. Lots of paper strewn around, and very unpleasant odors (my wife had to use the men's latrine because the women's was so disgusting). A nice feature (for those so interested) is that the NJ Astronomical Assn's observatory is a short hike away; they tell me it's the largest public telescope (27") in NJ. Attended an open talk there on Sat night, but it was unfortunately too hazy to use the big telescope. Probably would not stay here again if there's space at Spruce Run.

Excellent place! Very clean sites and bathhouses, quiet at night, and good playground for kids. Nice small lake with paddleboats for rent. We really enjoyed this campground, and will be back!

When we rolled in Friday eve at 5:30pm, no one was at the office, nor did they answer the phone # posted on the door. But, after hanging out for about 15 mins, a woman called me back, and she was there within 5 mins. She was polite but brusque when checking us in. Once we got to our site though, all was fine - very clean site and campground in general. Fellow campers (including seasonals) were friendly, etc. One other observation though - we camped with our 15 month old. He was very excited about the playground equipment, but it's not really appropriate for the really small fry... 5+ year olds should be fine. They have a nice pool as well, but also not little-one friendly.
