Stayed in an Elite Patio site, ##71. The Elite Patio sites have a fire ring, picnic table, grill and another table and chairs all on a concrete patio. We had no need to set up our usual stuff. The roads getting to the campground were tight, so take your time. The roads in the campground are also a bit tight. The site was mostly level, although I had to get off the jacks, back up a few feet and re-level to get it within limits with no blocks. As before, the staff was helpful and very nice. The campground has many activities every weekend, a DJ this particular weekend. It was very hot so we didn't walk around much. The site next to us, also an Elite Patio site, had a power line right across the site, about 14 feet off the ground. And lastly, they now require each occupant to have a wrist band to prove that you belong there. It's to keep outsiders from using the facilities, but it's a little over the top. We will camp here again.

Stayed in North East Loop site #11. All sites are either pull through in a crescent beside the loop drive, or back in with the drive angled for very easy in and out. This loop had full hookups with 50 amp service. . Most sites level or close to it. All rigs required to have wheels on the hard surface, which made for easy jacking. Cell service was almost non-existent. TV reception OK, but varied by site. Concrete pathways between sites and bath house. Lots of hiking trails. We went for the rest and relaxation so we didn't use any of the facilities. Other loops may be pet restricted, no hookups or electric and water only. Very nice state park.

Large sites all staggered so you aren't too close to anyone. Lots of tent campers. Boat dock on the pond, no power boats. No WiFi, cable or satellite reception for TV and very limited on air TV reception all due to heavy tree cover. Many hiking and biking trails. We had two nice days and nights followed by rain all day and night the last day of our stay. the drainage wasn't bad, more sand than mud.

Got there after hours, but they had a map to our site and instructions on how to pay (drop box). The campground was very clean and quiet. The only down side (for some) might be the occasional train coming through close enough to hear. Personally, I liked it. There are only 35 spots. Most are full hookup and we had a pull through. Level gravel sites with concrete patios. Nicely landscaped. We used it for a short overnight on a long trip, and will plan on using it every time we're in the area. Very nice little campground.

Very clean park. Camped in a 35' Class A towing a car on a dolly, and still had plenty of room in front in my pull through site. I needed a few blocks under the front jacks to level. All sites are gravel, although some had as much grass as gravel. WiFi was fine, all hookups were clean and easy to get to. The pool looked very clean. The dog run was also clean with a few agility obstacles to play with. Very nice, large play area for the kids, and a well kept miniature golf course ($). The cabins appeared to be renovated and/or new. Office staff, hosts and volunteers were all friendly and helpful. On the minus side, quiet hours weren't enforced very well. We will stay here again.

Stayed in the Carrousel loop near the end, spot 179. Tight for a pull through. The roads are narrow and if someone parks a truck slightly into the road it's tough to get through. Sites were gravel and level, very close to each other. WiFi was spotty (Tengo so expected) and no internet at all Friday night. Wooded sites so no satellite. Cable was good. It looks like the spots up the hill are farther apart. Tent area is in a lower part of the park and close to a stream. Susceptible to flooding in heavy rain. Cabins appear to be very nice. We didn't use the bathhouses so I can't comment about them. Lots of amenities for kids. 3 pools, play room. Free shuttle to Hershey Park and Chocolate World.

This is a good campground to use as a base, but it's barren for a destination. The spots are all paved and many are pull-through. but they're very close together and small. Not a bad rate for full hookups. I think there are 4 trees in the entire campground and none over 10 feet tall. It's still 500 yards to walk to the beach. Lots of fishermen. If you want to fish, or use it to park while you visit the town and outlets, it's OK. We were as close to the ocean as we could be and found noise from Rt. 1. It might be better with the windows closed, but it wasn't that warm. It was also foggy all weekend. Campfires are not allowed. No fire rings. We will probably not return.

In spite of torrential rains, our site (C-4) never flooded. The WiFi was spotty. it was steady when it worked, but it was too weak to connect to two of the six days we were there. The roads were rutted from the rain, and the sites a little less level than I'd like. I was able to level the motorhome using leveling blocks and the jacks, and all four wheels still touched ground. Gravel sites. The sites aren't big, but certainly adequate and not shoved together. There is no store and the office and coffee shop had odd and sparse hours. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, from check-in through the entire stay. We wil probably stay here again.

Rate is for no discount full hookup 30 amp. No cable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were led to our site and spotted while backing in. The sites aren't big, but certainly adequate with lots of seasonals. For the amount of campers, it was surprisingly quiet. Horrible Verizon cell phone reception. Campground Wi-Fi was limited to 30 minutes every 8 hours. Lots of golf carts but they all seemed to be quiet and slow enough. We'd stay here again if in the area.
Date of Stay: June, 2014
Very nice, quiet campground. Some pull-through sites, mostly back-ins. Big, gravel and easy to access. The back-in sites back up to the lake, which is tree lined. Some shade, some sun. Small campground with ample space between sites. There are no activities for kids other then kayaking and the pool, but that meant mostly older campers and a quieter atmosphere. Go here to relax, not to party. Staff was very helpful. Trash pickup is twice a day, but I was them come by more often than that. We would stay here again.
Date of Stay: April, 2014
This was our first time camping and Spring Gulch was an ideal start. The area we wanted, the 1500s, was booked so we opted for the 400s. Upon arrival they informed us that a cancellation was received earlier and we got site 1528. As it was April, the pool wasn't open yet, and we didn't use the restrooms or shower so I can't comment on those. Our site was in a good location with no sites across the road, and plenty of room and vegetation between the sites left, right, and back. Gravel are plenty big for me to back my 35' rig into. Hookups were easy and all worked. The downside to it was that it took four level blocks for the front jacks and that raised the front wheels off the ground by about 8". And the cable TV was fuzzy and limited, but that may have been user error. As I said, it was out first time camping. We will camp here again.
