Date of Stay: August, 2011
We camped here with extended family members. We stayed in a travel trailer and extended family stayed in the cabins. Sites were decent size and shaded. No fire pits at trailer sits. Just build a fire on the ground and at end of stay employees will come around and clean up any ash left over. If you cook over a campfire as we do, you need to make sure you have a campfire grate with legs on it. Otherwise store sells one. The cabins are on the smaller size, but normally camping you are only inside to sleep. They have a double bed and two twin bunk beds. Were clean and comfortable. Employees were all very friendly. Hayride on Friday night and ice cream social on Saturday night. Decent sized pond with stocked fish. Campground is kept very clean and store well stocked. Only real disappointment was lack of activities for kids. They did have the hayride, ice cream social, bingo and a picture scavenger hunt. Other KOA's we have been to have had at least one craft activity on Saturday. A lot of campers pulled in for just over night through out the entire weekend. We would go back here again.

Campground staff is pleasant. When we first arrived we were given site PAV2S a pull through. We went to our site to find out it was directly across the street from a bunch of dumpsters. Called camp office to request a new site. We did not want to stay across from the dumpster since we would be there for a week and it was supposed to be hot. We did not want the smell of trash in our campsite every day. I'm not sure how often the dumpsters get emptied but there were a few days when walking by or putting trash in they did have an awful odor when you were not even close to them. The office first said they had no other open sites available that were full hook up. There seemed to be plenty of open sites around the Pavilion area. I told the employee that we would be happy with a back in site as long as it had full hookups. We were going to be at the campground a week. They finally sent us to another site on the opposite side. A full hook up back in site. Sites are very small compared to other campgrounds. Not much room in between trailers. There seemed to be a lot of people staying the season and living there. The seasonal campers seemed to have all the sites by the stream. I spoke with a camper that was living there for the summer. They had to move their trailer every 30 days due to the holidays. They would be on a stream site during one month then have to move because of July 4th, then were able to move back at end of July. Campground is about 15 minutes from I-81 and Wal-Mart. Was convent to Gettysburg and Hershey. Probably would not stay here again.
Date of Stay: June, 2011
We camped here for a long weekend with a group of other RV's. The rate reflects a discount for our group. Very nice campground. Staff very professional. We stayed in the lower section of the first loop after going through security gate. Had a nice walk to the general store and pool. Pools were very nice. They had 2 outdoor pools and 2 hot tubs. The site we were on had a gas grill and sink. A good size picnic table and extra chairs and benches. We did go to the Marina and Mini Golf one day. These are located out closer to the main lodge, so we had to drive. Too far of a walk with little ones. The mini golf course was very nice. Workers were there on Friday doing some updating. Very nice scenery. You can tell they take pride in the resort over all with the cleanliness and the upkeep. All staff members that we ran into were very polite. The pools at the general store were very nice and never over crowded. They had a playground also for the kids. You exchange your towel card for a towel every time you to to the pool, so you don't have to use your own. They give you your card back when you return the towels. Bathrooms are very clean along with showers. I noticed the guest laundry was free which is a nice touch. I'm sure that is partly due to this is a time share resort. Our group had a big pot luck dinner on Sat. night. We had plenty of room at one of the sites for everyone to sit and eat and chat. The only problem I saw with this resort is the sites are way off level. Other then that, a great resort, very kid friendly. Will definitely go back again if the chance arrives.
