We decided to try this park because the nearby state parks and Corps of Engineers parks do not allow pets. Most of the folks staying in the park are working on local construction projects. Many others are seasonal. Only a few campers are vacationers staying a week or less. The negatives I read in other reviews are true. There is noise from the highway, a train, and from construction vehicles on the property. There is generally a run-down feeling due to the age of many units and restroom / shower. We were here Monday - Thursday, so weekend rowdiness was not an issue at all. But there was also much we liked. In fact, we ended up staying four extra nights. We stayed in the lower loop, which is used by the short-term visitors. Our site was right along the Susquehanna River. Our view were of mature trees and the river. It was very relaxing and peaceful. We used two of the owner's kayaks and thoroughly enjoyed an easy-going float along the river. We found the people here very friendly. I would definitely stay here again for these reasons. The scenery was really very nice and having easy access to the river for swimming, boating or fishing was a plus. Also, our dogs were welcome here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
After making reservations at this campground, I read some not so great reviews. But we kept an opened mind, willing to make the best of it. However, when we arrived we found the house at the main entrance is run down with broken windows, the entrance driveway is over some very rough train tracks, many of the sites down in the campground have junk and scrap all around, and the whole feeling of the place is just plain scary! We turned around and left immediately. (We did not stay at this park.) We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
I just stayed at this campground, and as the previous review stated, it was seedy. A broken down refrigerator sits in one site with a lot of junk around it. It is very run down. I wouldn't want to stay in a place like this alone. This is not a place for a large RV. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed in some pretty seedy places, but this campground rates number one. I really hate to pan any campground, but stay here at your own peril. Entry/egress is difficult, especially with a big rig and the sites are just bare places in the bottom-land along the Susquehanna River. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
