All opinions are based on perspective. My perspective was from that of a tent camper. Bath house was a long walk from tent sites, dimly lit and very rustic. Pool bathrooms were disgusting. Friday/Saturday night activities were loud and ran late so don't expect quiet camping. Don't plan on eating meals at the snack shop. The little bit that we did order was not high quality. Tent sites very large and spaced out nicely. Camp grounds (not the bathrooms) are kept very orderly and clean. Fishing lake is nice. Camp staff is friendly (if you don't include the 2 adults that were arguing in the main office when my 10 yr old son walked in. Saying F---- wasn't needed. Pet friendly. Bottom Line: Not worth the $40 / night (plus $7/ day extra since I have a family of 5). That is $7 a day so for my three night stay it was an extra $28. We camped here in a Tent.
Nice park. Gentleman guided me in and directed me as I backed in. Safe area, very pretty, friendly staff. Arrived at 2:00 PM to set up returning that night to camp. Office would not budge on the $10 early setup fee, even though we wouldn't be using facilities. Wi-Fi was pay service. Nice park but they want every nickel and dime possible from you. For $50 per night Wi-Fi should be complimentary. I Loved the full hookup site. Overall very nice experience. Some of the permanent campers were in well used units; we were parked next to one. I suppose this is the case anytime you have permanent tenants. Would definitely return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground is mostly seasonal sites with a few transient spaces, maybe 10 total. Staff was very nice, the seasonal campers were standoffish. Quiet Hours were enforced. The site was wide and level and backed to a nice wooded area. There was a pool, which we didn't use, but we did see a lifeguard. The playground was in nice shape, and the lake was also very nice. The campground is well maintained. The shower room & laundry room were old but clean. They do offer WiFi but we did not use it, as they charged a fee. There is no cable. This campground is close to the Heritage Rail Trail for bike riding. We would stay again if in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was our first stay at this campground. I have to say, the staff and owners were just wonderful, so pleasant. It was Halloween weekend; there was so much to do. Lots of activities and amenities. Everyone made us feel like family, both the staff and the other campers. We can't wait to return to this campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The rate reflects the daily rate based on the monthly rate of $520 that we paid. The only reason I gave this a 9 instead of a 10 is the tightness of backing into the sites. This is a busy park - they have something going on every weekend. Families can be assured of having fun. The environment is lovely, very well maintained. The owners are visible and very friendly. This was our sixth summer staying here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our first trip to this campground, and it was very nice and clean. The staff were very friendly. They escorted you to your site. Sites were nice size, gravel pads, grass areas for tables, etc. We camped with a big group, and we were able to have our group fire in a common area. They have Wi-Fi, but you have to pay a fee: not sure how much, we didn't use it. Pool looked very nice, didn't use that either, it was closed on Sunday. I expect someone had an 'accident' earlier that day, because it was a very hot weekend and it was being used prior to that. Pool was reopened the next day. They have lots of activities to keep you entertained if you want to do them. We visited a few wineries nearby on one day, and road bikes on the Heritage Rail trail one day (a 30 minute drive maybe). I would come again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
As stated by another poster, this campground has only maybe 6 or 7 sites open for temporary stays. Everything else appears to be year round. The other thing to keep in mind is that deposits are not refundable for any reason. The only reason I'm giving them a 7 rating is partly my fault. This was our first outing and we got put in a spot that required the front of the camper to be 40" high to get it level. Now that I've been around the mill a couple of times I would have rejected the site I was given. Without that problem I would rate them a 9. Yes, I did reserve a spot for next year, but NOT the same one I had. Took one close to the showers/laundry house! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Absolutely amazing! PA's First and Finest! They added WiFi this year and also an arcade! Their activities schedule is amazing and lots of fun! Including bands of all types, dances, and events for all ages! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very family-friendly park. The only drawback is that most of the RV sites are taken by seasonal users. There are few "transient" sites. Be sure to call ahead if you want to stay here. This is our second summer here and we consider it our summer "home." The owners are very personable and hands-on. It is a second generation, family-owned campground, with the third generation learning the ropes. There are activities every weekend. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I love this park. Beautiful views and some of the nicest people I ever met. Everyone treats you like family, The owner goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome. We had spot 57 which Is by far the best site there, right by the falls. Great fishing, ducks, wild rabbits, deer, and we even saw a mink. New showers and bathrooms, plenty of hot water, green grass that's kept very nice. Really, I can't say enough good things about this park. I wish we could have stayed longer. I understand the bridge is new so if you had heard the bridge couldn't withstand certain weights, that's no longer true. I don't know why this park isn't packed every weekend; except maybe its Dover' s best kept secret. We looked at all campgrounds near here and this one is top notch. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful scenery...the bathroom facilities were unacceptable. There were wild rabbits running all around this place...even through the big puddles that were created when it rained. The man staffing the office was really nice and helpful. There is also a newspaper article hanging in the office about how the campground needed to be evacuated a few years back due to both creeks cresting their banks...interesting story, but questionable marketing practice to have it hanging in the office. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here when we visited hershey Park. The sites are grassy and a little hilly. They are close together with no buffer. Some of the tent sites are very close to the highway so request one not near the mini golf. The kids loved the mini golf even though it was a little run down. They also loved walking to the camp store and buying .25 ice creams. The store is well stocked with anything you may have left at home. We did not use the showers but the bathrooms were okay. Nothing great. They are centrally located. There is no hot water in the bathrooms. Each site comes with a fire ring and a picnic table. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great place to relax and fish. Limited sites available on stream with full hook ups as most are seasonals. Owner should consider upgrading more of sites to full hook-up. Very narrow roads to campground, we have a 34' Class A and just make the bridge. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Thousand Trails member rate. The campground could rate higher if there was an effort made to deal with drainage of rainwater runoff. With heavy rains many of the sites are under water (inches) and are slow to drain when the rain stops. This is a working farm with lots of animals (petting yard) including alpaca and llama. There is lots going on here and families have a ball. The volleyball court was a pool during our two week stay. Staff is courteous and helpful. During summer this is a busy place with lots of families camping for weekends. Gettysburg Battlefield/Park is nearby. Allow lots of time to do the tours. Seasonal fresh produce from all the surrounding farms. This really is a pleasant campground, in spite of the run-off problem with heavy rains. 50 amp sites go quickly, so arrive as early as possible. We would return when in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a back-in on grass/gravel, more grass then gravel. We had a full hook up with 50 amp electric. The site was fairly level. We had a picnic table and fire ring. We needed 30 foot of sewer hose to connect to the sewer hookup, and this is common in many of the sites. So bring enough sewer hose. There were a few large trees at our site. Very active schedule, like most Thousand Trails parks. There is a large pool, clubhouse, mini golf, etc, etc. This is a country atmosphere resort with many farm animals. There are goats, horses, cows, chickens, ducks, pigs, etc. 4 o'clock is feeding time, and the kids can help feed. The club house is very country with a large stone fireplace. About 250 sites with 20 rental cabins. There is a very clean laundry in the clubhouse. Our Verizon phone worked very well. Not sure about Wi-Fi. Over the air TV we receive all major networks. Dog Friendly. Very large park with many areas to walk a dog. Very low light at night. Very quiet even though the park was full while we were there. Small book exchange in the clubhouse. It is out in the country and about 8-10 miles from grocery shopping and many Restaurants. A few small restaurants about six miles. About 15 miles from downtown York with many factory tours in the area. 18 miles from Gettysburg National Park. The park is a great location for touring the area. We will try to get back to do some of the factory tours. The park sits along the Conestoga Creek. We did have some very heavy rains while there. The ground was already saturated and some of the sites down toward the creek had 2-3 inches of water laying around them for a day or two. There are a limited number of 50 amp sites. They let you choose your own site, like most Thousand Trails Parks, but it burns my butt when I see a pop up with a 20 amp cord on a 50 amp site and a large 5th wheel or motor home have to take a 30 amp site. There are many seasonal/annual sites on the limited 50 amp sites. The park was nearly full for the 12 days we were here. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We really enjoyed this park. We are Thousand Trails members and this is one of the nicest campgrounds we've been to in the system. Would stay here again if we're ever in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We love this park. The staff is friendly and helpful, the facilities are beautifully maintained, the sites are spacious, and the animals are fun to watch. Lots of baby animals. The activity center is pure country, with a big stone fireplace at one end and tables set up on raised platforms along both sides of the room. There are big wooden country cutouts along the chair rails. There are three playgrounds, a nice, fenced outdoor basketball court, pool and gameroom. On weekends they have pony rides and petting zoo. Good TV reception, and we have shade and satellite. There is Tengo Internet available for a charge. We would definitely come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This CG was lacking in a lot of areas, beginning with the rudeness of the office staff. They do have a lot of activities planned throughout the week. The bathrooms near us were filthy, and remained that way the entire 5 days we were there. The only ventilation in the bathroom was a box fan plugged in next to the sink. Not sure how safe that is. The pool was warm, but dirty. It was only cleaned in the early morning. Hookups are at the far rear of the site. Sites are small and cramped. There are a lot of very unfriendly members and seasonals who think they own the place. It was really neat to have a pasture, corn fields, and petting zoo as part of the facility. The best part of the CG is that it was centrally located within 45 min of Lancaster, Hershey, and Gettysburg. If you plan to stay in the near future, beware of a bridge that's out next door to the CG. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here with our Outdoor World membership through Thousand Trails. The stay was free with the membership. They have a gated security that is staffed most of the time. We were here during the Memorial Day weekend 2009 and the park was almost 100% full. The main roads are paved up to the area where the sites are. The roads to the sites are all gravel. The sites have a gravel drive. They are level and very spacious and most come with a fire ring and a barbeque. We were on a full service site with 50/30 Amp service, water and sewer. There are a lot of sites by the rive as well, but they do not have sewer. The park offers free honey due service at no charge. We have a satellite dish. If you do, you will need to watch for a site that is open to the southwest. We had no problem doing that. They do not allow golf carts here. I use ours due to my disabilities, but could not use it here. They do allow a scooter or power chair if you have one of those. There is a nice pool, free mini golf, basketball courts and playgrounds. There is a petting zoo for the kids. Great RV park for the kids. The office has camping supplies and a small food store with the basics. The staff runs a lot of activities on the weekend. The grounds are well kept. The park is located between Gettysburg and Lancaster. A lot of stuff to see and do in the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and will definitely be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We just bought a Thousand Trails membership, and Thousand Trails has just acquired Outdoor World. This was our first use of the TTN/Outdoor World system. We just love this place. Right from the start, we were greeted with neatly manicured and landscaped surroundings. The office staff was very friendly and helpful. We were told to pick out a site to our liking, and then return to the office to let them know where we'll be. The sites are long and level, and spaced nicely apart from neighboring sites. There is a nice variety of farm animals here: fun for adults and kids alike. Can't say enough about this place. We'll definitely return! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a wonderful campground. The campground is also a working hobby farm with many animals. We camped here during Easter break with another family and between us we had 8 boys. The kids loved it. It had a great playground area for the kids, flat roads for bike riding, free mini golf, the fun of the animals and beautiful gardens. They even did a pot luck for Easter dinner. We were here early in the season so most of the week we were there, the cg was almost empty. The sites are typical of an RV park. The showers/bathrooms were clean. It is conveniently located to Gettyburg and Lancaster County. We would definitely camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great park and very well run. The "farm" is in the middle of the campground and gives the kids lots of opportunities to interact with different animals. (Many tame rabbits here and in the adjacent Conewago Isle CG) Friendly staff and guests. No "seasonal trash", wild golf carts, etc. The sites are first come first served. The entertainment and activities are great for all. There is ample room between sites to give you a private feel but yet not too secluded. We will DEFINITELY be back! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This highly unusual campground combines the beauty of camping with the features of a farm, and manages to execute the combination in a superb, family-friendly, and child-centered manner. We enjoyed a full schedule of weekend activities (including a movie, a craft program, a hay ride, and a petting zoo), luxuriated in the large and uncrowded pool, witnessed the birth of two goats, played several rounds of mini-golf, and were most impressed with the staff's attention to detail and desire to accommodate our needs. Our rental unit was capable of sleeping eight people, nicely furnished, immaculately clean, and a bargain for the nightly rate that we paid. I highly recommend this campground, which is available to both Outdoor World members and to non-members like us. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a working farm with a campground dispersed throughout. What a riot! It's on a nice river. The staff was great. Buttercup was the most personable cow I've ever seen. We've camped all over the country and this place was really neat. It's convenient to Hershey, Gettysburg, York, Hanover. Membership park, but nobody bothered us at all to join. Go here--it was more fun than the tourist activities all around it. Very quiet save for the rooster, but he was just being a rooster. Clean, polite families camping there. Even had a civil war encampment/reenactment going on.
Highly recommended! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
