Date of Stay: October, 2014
We decided on a trip to Lancaster in October and this was the only park I could find 4 weeks out with availability. It was our first - and will be our last - visit here. We were in the electric/water only area. This park is like so many other older parks that were designed for 20-25' rigs. Sites are small and crammed in. They even have sites set up in what looks like used to be a large parking lot. Our site (80) had no pad and upon arrival was soggy with water, but it did dry up. Four times on Saturday we lost electric briefly. Once someone else set up on the site behind us, our water pressure dropped to a trickle. The campers on the street behind us had piled up 4 fire rings and literally had a huge bonfire going. The staff, while friendly enough, didn't seem to care. Come 11 PM campers did quiet down and respect the quiet hours. There are a few seasonals there, who fortunately didn't show up for the weekend. We won't go back.

We stayed here for 5 nights with adult family over Thanksgiving. Sites are large, we had no problems with ours being off-level to any large degree. To address another posters concern, you can indeed get set up on your site and then go check in. In fact, we were advised to do just that. Restrooms were clean, well heated for our cold stay. We did have what appeared to be a long-time camper next to us with some junk outside his rig. In general, the park was not crowded and we had no problem in inviting some military friends to come for dinner who lived in the area. Wi-Fi is available, I think we were on site 60 - the last row by the bathrooms. Reception wasn't that great, but better than our AT&T cell service. Calls were a problem. The staff was very nice. The base is located a bit away from Williamsburg, but for the rate compared to the public campgrounds, it is worth the drive. We have already booked another stay in June of 2014.

Were it not the only campground close to the Hershey RV show, we'd not EVER go there again. Sites in the row with 102 had sewer connections that ran UPHILL. And full of water from recent rain. We had to wade thru 2+" of water upon arrival. We were charged for a full hookup site that we didn't dare even use. Sites are small, our slide was within 10' of the next one over. Bathroom is old and run down. No Wi-Fi. Sites that are farther back seem to be better and not on a downhill slope. Be prepared to use a sewer extension and run your hookup UNDER your RV. We didn't hook up the sewer. There are dump stations available, but you'll be in the street blocking every one else while you discharge. The one we used had nasty dirty water pooled around it. Better yet, do yourself a favor and go somewhere else. Not worth the price charged. Worst campground we've ever been to.

As this park is only 2.5 miles from our house, it was where we went for our first camping trip with our new RV. They have 5 electric sites available to book - not 6 with 3 occupied by camp hosts as previously stated. Lums Pond, while lacking in amenities, is a lovely state park to camp at. The sites are large and spaced out. Most all are shaded. The bath house was clean and well stocked for our stay. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring located well away from your rig. Parking is on the grass, so the site may need extra work in leveling. The campground has a *strict* no-alcohol policy. You can have an RV and tent on each site, with up to 8 people and two cars. Each additional person over the initial 4 is $2 a night. Even though it's close to home, we will make it a yearly stop.

We were pleasantly surprised by this campground. It is located about 9 miles off RT 301, on back roads but an easy drive in the RV. They have an electric loop and non-electric loop. We stayed on site #9 in the electric loop. Our site was perfectly level side-to-side and totally shaded. All the sites were well shaded - trees were actually so dense we had to turn the lights on during the day. There are a lot of activities nearby with a fishing pond, nature walks, public arboretum, frisbee, golf course, kayak rentals and more. The nice thing about this park is that visitors can stop by without paying a fee! It was father's day and our grown kids drove down to surprise Dad. They do patrol the campground about every hour. The only complaint I have is that the bathrooms were not well stocked and and were allowed to run out of toilet paper and soap in the course of the weekend. There are no stores close by, so make sure you don't forget anything. We will definitely go back again soon.
