The park was clean and quiet. We are from Florida and have traveled for 3 summers. We have covered almost every state. This is the first camp site we had to pay extra to have a visitor, and more to use the pool. Everything for the kids seemed to be closed. - veniceburd

This was our first and last time camping at Merry Meadows. We were very excited to camp here because of all the amenities listed and beautiful atmosphere. The first day we arrived (Monday) the pool and mini golf were closed. The second day we stopped in and spoke with the guy working at the snack shack, which is where you show your pool pass and purchase the mini golf. We wanted to make sure it was open, etc. We changed into swimsuits and 10 minutes later were told they were closing the pool, mini golf and snack shack early because not a lot of people have been so far (pool hours are 12-8 pm). We went at 3 pm. The arcade was also closed. The front office and store closed at 1:00 pm.
We were unable to use the amenities we would have liked to use and why we chose Merry Meadows. We also have young children and found out that they also are not allowed to use floaties in the pool which is absurd. I understand not allowing rafts, etc., but not allowing floaties or life jackets for children who can't swim is cruel and ridiculous. You could not pay me to camp here again. It was a waste of our money. - Murphy14

UNBELIEVABLE # of rules and regulations. Our daughter and her husband brought us dinner @ 6pm in the rain and were charged $10 visitor fee plus $20 deposit on a car pass! "There are NO exceptions to our visitor policy!!" All activities with the exception of the pool (12-8 except when they close it early) are an additional charge. Activities are limited to Friday evening and Saturday. Church service on Sunday. TV cable service was poor. - MamaBird

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

We stayed here with our Stockade group. There are only two large open field sites available. We stayed at site 1 which is closest to the bathrooms. There is a water spigot near the restrooms but there are no shower facilities. Each site has a fire ring, picnic tables, and a nice new BBQ and a large wooden cooking type area built next to it. It even has hooks for your lantern. The rangers were nice and came out to check on us a few times and the park is great. The disk golf course and hiking trails were a big hit. We would stay here again. - Cfamily

We stayed for 10 days and got weekly rate for first week, then daily. We wanted to stay longer, but they are booked in advance on weekends for Halloween activities. Location is excellent for visiting family, so we want to come back for a month next fall, but they won't take the reservation more than a month in advance, in case they have the opportunity to rent the space long-term. We get the impression that they are trying to transition into a trailer park instead of a campground, and that they don't really want campers like us but will take us if there is a vacant space. Very disappointing, as there is nothing else available in this immediate area. We like it here and would definitely come back, but it's hard to plan when they won't take our reservation. I rated Ramblin' Pines as 7 for this reason; otherwise, I would have rated it as 10. - SheriRS

Stayed 17 days, received weekly rate. Campground got a lot of business on the weekends and activities are planned. The camp staff was very friendly and helpful. The roads a little winded off the exit but navigable. Taking Hwy 97 off I 70 allows you to make a left turn into a lieu of taking Hwy 94. - bkboren

I struggled where to give my rating. Based on a few things I have given a 6 due to 1. they put us on 1X (don't take this site!), it is right beside the entrance and office and the busiest place in the park; there were I'm sure other sites they could've given, we were right beside the park host (really not sure why, this is an rv park with an office), their site should be 1x! 2. they have an entrance gate with a wooden bar that swings up, it is only activated by a staff member who sits in a cart a 100 yards ahead by the office; so if he's gone potty? you don't get in!! stupid system. And $62 per night is way too much for this park. The roads inside are easy to drive if you get a site further in. Hookups were good but no cable on this site, a staff member had to split off from a site behind us. All sites are gravel and fairly wide. - North America in 90 days

The registration area is away from the camping area and if arriving from the East is hard to access due to a 11 foot underpass restriction. RV sites use the inner loop which has 30 amp power but no water. Sites are about 30 feet apart. Residential housing is visible behind the campsites but we did not have noise problems. Only one place to take on fresh water or dump waste but we did not have to wait. Overall functional but not scenic. - rudyhehn

The site was nice and level, but a bit small, with a short driveway. We actually brought 2 vehicles this time, and it was really tight. Fair amount of trees surrounding our site, but since there are still very few leaves, it felt way closer and less private. This campground is very popular, and set up as two loops; an inner loop with electric sites, and a more spread-out outer loop with non-electric, tent-only sites. The inner loop was completely full, and the sites were just too closely spaced for my preferences. There were a few sites with a little extra room and privacy (419 and 420 caught my eye), but for the most part they were packed in pretty tightly. If you're a tent camper and don't need electric, the sites on the outer loop were quite nice and private. Bath house was old, small, and not exceptionally clean, but adequate for our needs. Did not use the showers this time. However, there are only 4 restroom stalls and 2 showers on the ladies side, so I can imagine the lines would be pretty crazy during the summer time. I expected lines this weekend, considering the campground was full, but we lucked out. There is also a dish washing room with a deep double sink, but this was old and dingy as well. I'm really surprised that the bath house hasn't been renovated yet, and that there is only one bath house and a single water spigot to service both loops, considering the size and popularity of the park. Normally in MD State Parks, there is a water pump every few sites. This is the largest state park in MD, and is very spread out, with several distinct areas. Almost every area has a great day use section, with nice pavilions and playgrounds. Overall, while this is a great park for day-tripping with a very convenient location, we just didn't care for the campground. If you don't mind the proximity to other campers and multiple scouting groups, or if you can make use of the more private tent sites, this might be a good option. - Jenventola

I almost didn't make reservations because we would be arriving on a Sunday in early May. Glad I did because the park was full. We read all the great reviews about the park entrance and had no problem with the approach to the campground. If you are very organized you can get a senior citizens pass well in advance and save quite a bit. Monday was a different day in the park. Trails empty of people and the park quiet. We stayed here because of the proximity to BWI airport. The drive to pick up our family was easy and uneventful. - travelnurse

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

Year round park. Good wifi. New activities building. The park is undergoing a change from being a mobile home park, our site was gravel, but sloped towards the back. There was still plenty of room for our 35' motorhome to be fairly level, but this made it a long run to the sewer which was at the very back of the site (needed 2 hoses). Close to Harley Davidson etc. for tours. The new owners are working hard to make your stay enjoyable. Park stays full, we had the choice of only 2 sites, so call ahead. - D and M

We stay here when visiting our daughter's family. Friendly, small park. Making lots of improvements with aim toward becoming an "event spot". Grandchildren liked the waterfall, firepit and swings. - MamaBird

I have mixed feelings on this Campgroud. First the good. Sites are ok. Beautiful club house and fountain. Paved roads. Price is great. Now the bad. Highway noise, no site prep, ugly mobile homes, no on site management so the 5 mph speed limit ignored. I understand that this Campground is in transition from mobile home park to RV park, but it makes me wonder from the money spent on the club house if the owners are serious about being a Campground as our site, and most of them, do not even have picnic tables! I would hope that they will continue to improve the sites as they need gravel and leveled. Would we return? Maybe. - southwind2004

The site was a mudhole. The roads highly confusing and once down a lane, hard to turn the rig. Most sites are Park models or trailers, so there is little choice. - DustyBob

Trying to stay near Frederick MD, my usual favorite campgrounds were booked. Weekends in Oct are popular and we booked late, but we were able to get in here. I see why now. This campground is very tight, there were trailers within inches of the roads/stop signs throughout, and its a very uneven campground with all kinds of hills and valleys. The roads are very narrow bumpy paved, some gravel. Most of this place you can hear trucks thundering by, as its really almost right next to Rt 15. It is also full of permanent sites with sheds and junk thrown around. The "bathhouse" was a little tiny building, looked like cabin, 2 bathrooms, 2 showers. No hot water in one, and no paper towels to dry your hands except for the am we left. The only dumpsters were at the entrance and we were far from that. Glad we weren't staying a long time, would have had to keep hauling trash in our car. The only thing good about this campground is it's close to Gettysburg, but so are several other campgrounds. Glad we checked it out, but will never stay here again. - letsgorving

Our site is right beside a major highway. We were NOT told that at the time of reservation (in my opinion this should be disclosed at time of reservation).
Prior to arrival and at time of reservation I asked if sites are level multiple times! I was told yes. Get here, front wheels are off the ground. I asked to move sites. So they gave me 3 other options. All too short for us and even more unlevel (for our 40 foot motor home). I see at least 20 sites that would have worked for us that are open, and have been open our entire stay.
Most sites are not level.
Grounds are un-kept. Grass is up to my shin. Were told their lawn mower is not working (no excuse in, my opinion when one can hire landscaping help).
Sewer connections are uphill; therefore not draining properly.
Bathhouse is not air conditioned or heated, not even ventilated. Semi clean.
Some permanent sites are unattractive ("junky"). Others are well-kept.
Had to pay in-full at time of reservation, no refunds. Now I see why! Lesson learned!
Thankfully we are out and about being tourist and not at the CG often. We will not return. Found several other campgrounds nearby that looked like a better fit for us. - JohnsonFam

We camped here with friends who have a seasonal site. This is a very large park! You will either need to bring or rent a golf cart here, over a mile long. Very large easy to navigate sites. We camped in the "front section" and the only thing you can hear is Highway 15 running right by! You will most certainly want a site in the back. Also, there was a slight noticeable sewer odor at times. Overall, the location is within easy distance of all Gettysburg has to offer. Very friendly staff, seasonal campers very nice, and park has alot to offer. Good internet and cell service. We will return. - Chieftain1986

We were in a pull thru at the back of this very large park. Hook ups worked well and were placed well. WI FI was non existent in our section, a call to the office explained they were having internet issues. There was a lot of trash left in our site from previous campers. Cable worked well.Themed activities were well thought out. We will stay again. - mahill526

Stayed 3 nights here, beautiful park with great sites and lots to do. Pull through easy with lots of room for slides. Nice to not camp on top of other rigs. Love this site.
Lots of activities in the park for all. A little pastry, fresh vegetable cart came by with lots of fresh corn, onions, zucchini and homemade pies to buy, just wonderful. - D'art campizard

We stayed at Artillery Ridge for the first time over Easter Weekend. It was very close to the battlegrounds which was nice. The over all campground seemed nice. It was rather quiet for spring break, but we were ok it. The campground staff were super friendly. When we checked in our original site was kind of swampy due to the recent melting snow, and they immediately offered up 3 other full hook-up, pull thru sites we could move to. This was done with out me even asking in to move, so I thought that was very nice. The store was well stocked and had a nice variety of selections. We were right next to the entrance, but it didn't bother us at all. Everyone seemed to abide by the speed limit. The sites were rather close together, but again it wasn't bad. We've been to campgrounds where you literally were on top of each other. We walked around the whole campground and found it to be rather charming, the further you got away from the entrance. Watching the horses gallop around the fields was fun, although our dog was less than interested in it. The only complaint I could see was more enforcement of the leash rules. A couple of times people had their dogs out without a leash, which made it more of a chore for us to monitor our dog. Other than that we had a good time. We'd come back again. - Bebe and Pat

You can't get any closer to the battlefields than this! As soon as you pull out of the driveway you begin to see monuments, original buildings and battlefields. This is a nice park and we would come back. We had plenty of room on either side of us and utilities were well located and worked fine. A Wifi repeater was just outside our back window so we had great Wifi. The Verizon signal was 4G with 3 and 4 bars. Don't know about cable because we have a dish. The only problem was it is hard to clearly see the boundaries of your site because of the leaves falling from the trees (October). Our site was almost level - had to raise one side a couple of inches. Can't complain about that! I have my own washer & dryer but used their larger one to wash a bedspread. The equipment was great - large capacity and not too old. However, the laundry room wasn't the cleanest I have ever seen. It wasn't 'dirty', but it was messy. The office people were great and very helpful. There are sunny spots and shady spots. If you prefer one over the other make sure you tell them when you make the reservation. Near our site (just behind us) were a couple of trailers that are homesteaders. 2 of them were rather junky, unsightly and initially turned us off. As it was, no one was staying in them while we were here so we didn't let it bother us. We really enjoyed our visit to Gettysburg (a week) and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this park. - jomark

Park was a little crowded in the front but the overflow site we were in was spacious. The road are a bit narrow for a big rig but we got through. A bit dusty from all the horses in the corral next to the sites but not really a problem. - Bobby Will
