My overall experience of the this campground. Well, to start off it took 2 hours for my self and friends to make 4 reservations over the phone. They had one person working in the office and when someone would come in to the office they would lay the phone down and help that person. Most of the time it was seasonal people and you could hear them having a conversation and forget I was on the phone. When we arrived, again one person in the office, on a Friday checking people in. The campground itself was well kept and most other campers we meet we very nice. It is a very hilly campground so if you have an issue with walking not a good place. Tried out the snack bar for lunch and a good meal for a snack bar. Was not allowed to take our golf cart to the campground however, the seasonal sites are allowed to have golf carts. What is the difference? Our fire ring and friends of ours were not usable due to the location of where we had to place our RV on the site for the utility hookups. Ours was very close to the camper and just at the edge of our awning. Our friends fire ring ended up under their awning. When we left we turned in our car pass and gate pass. The employee did say thank you but that was it. Not have a safe travel home and we hope to see you again. Not sure if I will go back. Again, it is a nice looking campground but it needs some common sense things taken care of. - lmoyer21

The 800 telephone number may not work - was told they are changing telephone service providers - use 410-357-4088. Have stayed here many times over the years and park continues to be kept clean and run well. Water pressure is and has always been adequate if low - 30lbs. - wintertexan

Sites are gravel and level. Sites in the "P" block are long pull throughs with an amazing panoramic views. The sites are exposed to the elements and with temperatures nearing one hundred, the AC had difficulty in keeping up. More sites back in the trees reserved for weekenders. Staff was pleasant and efficient who knew the rule book and what rules. We know campgrounds have to have rules, but two full pages?
The gate security system is infuriating. One car out same car back in. My tow was being driven to our next destination so I walked back through the gate swiping my card which would allow me out the following morning with the RV. Didn't work: you have to be in a car to enter/exit!! Lesson: don't try and fool the system. - BRIDGEMAN

Decided to stay at Codorus rather than expensive parks closer to Gettysburg. Some sites in trees, newer sites in open grassy area. Paved RV pad. Electricity at the site. Strange no sewer or water at the site. Person at check-in booth was a little surly, but other staff helpful. Two ways to get into park: 1) older entrance was near the swimming pool and then winds up hill, 2) newer entrance comes off road at separate entrance. It does wind around a bit so road lines up with registration booth. Attended Sunday worship service with state park chaplain. Would recommend park to others. - Al Z

We stayed at Codorus State Park campground the first week of July 2016. We stayed over the 4th of July weekend, so pretty busy as you might expect. The entrance to the campground can be challenging to find and google maps never seemed to get it right for me, so be sure to check your directions carefully. The entrance to the campground through the checkpoint is a bit of a mess and can be a bit difficult to navigate with a larger rig. We have a 35' RV and were able to manage OK, but I can see where it could be a bit hairy for larger rigs, 5th wheels or trailers. Plenty of the above in the park though, so they seemed to have managed as well.
The showers / restrooms are centrally located in each loop of the campground with garbage dumpsters nearby. The showers / restrooms are old, but very clean and there was plenty of hot water.
The campground has both non-electric and 30amp electric sites. There is no water or dump facilities at the individual campsites, though there is both fresh water and dual dump stations at the entrance to the campground.
In general, I don't think there's a perfectly level site in the campground. You can find some that are close to level and others that aren't even close. I saw a lot of blocks being used at some campsites to level rigs and trailers. I saw one motorhome that has nearly 6" off the ground on blocks. I'd say that about half the sites have asphalt pads and half have dirt/stone pads.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the park as there is lots to do at this park, especially if you like the boating and fishing on the lake (though there is no swimming in the lake). - lazyjourney

We've been coming here the past few years in the fall. It's a great state park and nice campground. The water park is closed when we come so I can't comment on it, but I've seen it and looks great. The lake is beautiful and we've rented canoes and had lots of fun. There are a few trails to hike. It's a very peaceful here with varying site types from wooded to full sun. - Way2Roll

Lovely small private campground. Currently sitting out under the awning listen to the crickets enjoying a glass of whiskey. Quiet and peaceful. Close to York and the sites. Right on the York Heritage Rail Trail...a must do if your into rail trails. Manager recommended riding into downtown York (4 miles) and going to the farmers market and have lunch at White Rose Bar and Grill....both excellent recommendations. Check out the Harley factory tour. Lots of wineries around here so tomorrow we'll be wetting our whistles. Staying here on site 22 with out 36ft pusher, plenty of room and height. 20 amp electric may be a downfall for the novice camper but if you know how to do it there is no problem. Running our rear AC with no issues. Beautiful scenery and peaceful spot...grab some ice cream at the dairy as well. - Leon Condor

Just a basic CG. On the plus side, it is right next to a recreational trail that runs from York to the MD line. Gravel roads and pads are in fair condition. And it is quiet. On the minus side, not much for services. Unattended registration (at least on Friday). Very wooded and Not suitable for a tall rig (too many low-hanging branches for my 12.5'). There are only a couple sites with 30A electric and those were filled by what appeared to be long-term campers. The rest of the electric was 20A NEMA 5-15 (household type) outlets. The sewer connections were unusual... coming out of the ground at a 45 degree angle (not sure how I would connect my 90 degree elbow to that). Needless to say, we did not stay there and because there was essentially no 30A service, we will not be returning. If you are tent or TT camping and looking for some quiet, this might be your place. - FreeWheeler

We planned on staying here due to access to parks in York. However, after driving through decided to stay in Elizabethtown. The park has several old RVs (not sure if they are occupied). The restrooms are quite old (require security code to use), the connections are quite a distance from the sites. Wouldn't recommend this park. - Softball29

We called a day ahead to ensure they had a site for us. When we arrived we were assigned a W/E site in the open "field" in the center of the park.
Staff were friendly and accommodating. Certainly the price was right, but I had hoped we'd have had a full service site (for the same price).
The sites in the "field" are a bit up and down, but it wasn't difficult to level our TT.
Dump "station" is a small site on the perimeter road, not a proper dump station with water and an area to wash down any spills from dumping. It was okay but a larger rig might have trouble getting to the site. - DCM/JMB

Parked 44 ft motorhome on grass/gravel; nice clean park and owners are on ground and courteous. asphalt roads inside park, and narrow. We had FHU; Not an excellent park, but good price and convenient to shopping and attractions and clean. They are gradually improving. - ritag

A basic affordable park in a very convenient location for exploring York. The restrooms/showers were new, modern and very clean individual rooms. There were some permanent units, some better than others. The WIFI worked for us and we got several OTA TV stations. Our firepit was full of garbage and we did not have a picnic table. Our site was grass & dirt. Highway noise was significant, but otherwise the park was quiet and peaceful. Personnel were very pleasant! Pull-throughs look pretty uneven. We would stay again if in the area as it is affordable and in a good location. - R&S

First, the management (young husband & wife) are very pleasant and accomodating but, are the only staff. The office & store are only open Fri - Sun from 10am to 9pm. Any other time, you have to ring a bell for service. There is a nice play ground, pavilion and "Game Room" but, it's only open during store hours & closed the remainder of the week. A play on the old Roger Miller song....No pool, No phone, No Internet seems to sum up this facility. There is no internet service available anywhere in the park (the office even gets their service from HughsNet). Cell phone (Sprint) is in constant roaming & spotty. OTA TV gets MAYBE 4 channels from 2 stations & only if you have an upgraded antenna booster w/wingman. Satellite service is almost impossible to tune in due to the 100 - 150 foot tall trees in all areas of the campground (dish must be on the RV or on your site only, no running cables across roads or other sites). Our particular site & patio, was very uneven and with deep ruts from rain washout (they do NOT seem to care about regrading or filling in these washouts). There are several seasonal units on the grounds & although pleasant, they all seem to stay amongst themselves.
The facility is owned by a new regional power (electric) company and while we were there, a power company employee came around taking a survey on our stay. So, maybe, some changes/upgrades will be forthcoming soon.
We probably would not stay here again. - rracer5

Very nice and peaceful campground. The managers are very friendly and helpful. Most sites require a bit of leveling, so bring some blocks with you, but no big deal. Lots of shade trees, new playground, a lot of new upgrades. The camp store is very well stocked with just about everything you might have forgot to bring. I will return! - slomotion039

Very nice campground, with friendly people. We originally booked 4 camp sites but could not get them together. They called us back, after they had a cancellation, to get us 4 sites together, which was extremely nice. Checking in, the girl was very nice and helped me with some hiking questions I had and gave me a map of the trails, which you can access from the campground. They offer a few activities, and we attended the Bingo game. This is a nice place, with a few hilly areas. Not all the campsites are totally level, but we made do. The don't have sewer hookups, but have 2 dump stations, and also have the 'honey-wagon' service, but I'm not sure what days that's available, we didn't use that. No wifi, but that was ok with me as well. Sites are decent size, but you camper is very close to the one behind you, but it leaves for a big area for your 'hangout'. The Susquehanna is directly across the street with a public park, and Otter Creek is accessible from the campground as well. Decent amount of trees, which left our sites pretty shady for the most part, some sun during the day. Beware of tree sap dripping, might be a flowery popular tree. They also offer wood to purchase for campfires. We also visited a few wineries nearby, which were about 30 minutes away. - Camper_Girl

Large, grassy spaces with plenty of room for chaise and awnings. Spaces with no shade, partial shade, and full shade available. Wifi is Tengo and pretty much worthless. My AT&T hotspot worked fine, but had to go outside RV for phone calls. Plenty for kids, playground, large pool, farm animals and room to ride bikes and run around. Park is well maintained, roads are gravel with no ruts or potholes, spaces are paved with gravel and dirt. Maybe 40% of spaces are filled with permanent or seasonal campers, but still plenty of space available for shorter period campers. Very nice place, we'll come here again. - westwill3

The rate was actual $0 which reflects are TT elite membership.
The place has a farm-like feel, from all the animals to some of the vegetables they grow. The grounds are well maintained. The pool is in dire need of replacing. The water was clean, but there's missing tiles and cracks everywhere. The sites are easy to get into, with plenty of 50amp sites. The power goes out about everyday, but not for long. The people working here are friendly and helpful. I would definitely return if in the area. - Travelinlady

We are thrilled with this campground. Everything is so well maintained. Sites are sufficient. Easy to back in as they are on a slant. Can't find a thing to complain about. - phyllen

One of the most attractive campgrounds we have ever stayed at. Rolling hills and lots of grass...Many permanent sites, well maintained and manicured. Transient sites clean and level mixed in make it very attractive. We stayed here in a motorhome. A car is necessary as you are several miles from attractions. - deacon_1

Stayed here one night. New management from what I gather and they're not friendly. Wish we wouldn't have stayed. Lots of seasonal sites, some good some bad. Packed beside a trailer and their beagle barked and barked. Asked the owners if they could put it inside and they told us no, the dog likes it outside. People working there didn't seem to know the area when we were asking questions about how to get here and there. Only good thing was we were able to flush our tanks out really well and do our laundry. - Leon Condor

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. - Clem94

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. - gypsysoul

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. - Dan Holdt

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. - mastro

Rate reflects monthly stay. The nightly rate for shorter stays is more. This is a nice campground in Lancaster County. Many of the sites are spacious and level. Sites in the wooded areas are smaller and more difficult to back into. The wifi worked well as did Verizon service. There is no cable TV but many channels come in using the antenna. The staff here are among the friendliest of any campground we've stayed at. There are multiple trails on the campground to walk, and there are two great parks within 2 miles. There are a lot of campers parked here full time with people staying here during the winter months. We were parked up on the hill which can get quite windy and cold. There are other campgrounds in the area that we've stayed at and Tucquan Park was by far our favorite in the Holtwood area. - Lori and Larry

First off no matter what way you go in there are some nasty hills getting into this place. Getting into their driveway off the road damaged the trailer, your coming down a hill, have to go through a dip then up their driveway. The road and driveway are scarred from all the dragging trailers. Terrible design. The driveway is well pruned once you get into it. Staff were friendly. We had a pull through site which was small. They claim WIFI, my phone found it once but couldn't get on. The "new" bathhouses were disgusting. No dumpsters for recycling. Lots of seasonals and they all looked to be pretty well maintained. Managed to get out of the driveway without any additional damage and won't be going back. - ferguson65

Very peaceful campground. I usually stay at a site in the lower end of the campground, by the creek. Surprisingly not many bugs. The managers, husband and wife are very nice people. Well stocked store, nice price on firewood which they will deliver right to your site. There are sites up the hill and in the woods, but they are mostly seasonal campers. All in all a very nice place to relax. Will definitely be returning!!!! - slomotion039

Pit toilets. Lower areas are nice. But sites on top of the hill are rough and have older RVs, tarps, refrigerators, ect. No on-site sewer. Seasonals are cheap, with a waiting list. But you can only come weekends, and one two week period per season. The area is scenic. Hosts are very nice. No pool. Minimal playground. Big grassy areas for kids to play. Generally clean, but needs real bathrooms. - Denial Guru

Management is very helpful and friendly. Our site was nice and wide, with fire ring and large picnic table. Showers (metered) appeared to be clean and well maintained. Laundry room was clean with new machines (2 each). Firewood, ice and propane are available as well as some food staples, fishing gear and bait and other sundries. My only complaint is the lack of sewer hookup, but "honey wagon"service is available at a lower cost than most. Rate reflects 10 days at PA rate and 3 days full rate, plus A/C surcharge of $4/day. DO NOT depend on GPS to route you safely, follow directions on the website or you may well end up on some narrow STEEP hills (20% downgrade). We would stay here again. We had to change sites when we decided to stay an additional week. - DB_Engineer
