40 Parks near Adamstown, Pennsylvania
Jun 2016 - $65.00
We stayed here spring 2016. As we pulled in and as we got close the office, you could smell sewer. The smell was really bad all weekend. But that was not the only problem. The price was higher then we wanted. Higher rate for family. 51 base rate but extra for older kids. But I realize that adding for adult kids is normal.
Internet was spotty. Kept kicking us off. The RVs/trailers are packed in like sardines. You have campers very close on 3 sides of you. No privacy at all. We really didn't have any grass. We didn't even have a fire ring, not that we had the space to use it. I don't think you could park a car between the campers--they were too close. We couldn't use our awning.
Also, there is many permanent sites. It seemed as if 75 to 85% (could be much higher)are permanent. Just looked and felt like a trailer court. Doesn't feel like you are camping. The bathrooms were not clean and smelled of mold. There was green algae growing on things--not all things but the propane tank and shed were the worst. The office looked OK. And the people seemed nice.
There was a few 'cabins' that from the outside looked good.
We didn't check out the pool. The campground roads were confusing a bit. We will not go back because of the smell, no privacy, high prices and lack of good atmosphere. - KayG

Owners of this campground are wonderful. I have never seen owners cooking food and doing pedicure's for mothers day. They are aware of everything in their campground and they want to keep people happy. Nicest people you ever want to meet. Our site is great has lots of room. Game room is very nice. Bathrooms are clean. Pool looks very nice can't wait to swim in it. The pavilion is over the top it is so nice closed in all season pavilion has a bathroom and a kitchen. This is the nicest one I have ever seen. Playground is nice. Store is very cute has a lot of cute things in it. People in campground are all so nice. We love it and plan to camp here for a very long time. Lots of fun activities to do. - NIKKI66

Nice enough campground. Gravel roads and level gravel sites. Cable TV was good. Internet was very spotty. Very friendly people run the park and their guests are friendly, too. Many permanent campers have been left there by owners who come periodically. They are not kept clean which makes the campground seem a little ratty. But it was quiet and peaceful while we were there. - traveling2s

This campground is more like a trailer park with a lot of permanent residents that have separate rules than the campers do. There is no grass at all and the dust is overwhelming from the cars and trucks driving by. Also there is no activities all week and any activity on the weekend you have to pay additional for. - Family camper rv

The park has many permanent residents. I only saw a couple other motor homes. It was mostly trailers. We had 50 amp electric, but had problems daily with it blowing the circuit and shutting everything down. The cable didn't work at our site, but when neighbor left we plugged in to his, and it worked. (In fairness to the campground, we didn't report that our cable wasn't working.) We did report the electric and they checked it out and couldn't find any problems. We have never had a problem with electric at any other campground. The owners were nice, but I would not stay here again. - Longhorn Fan

We have found our new base camp in Lancaster County, with the improvements we see here. We camped here at least five years ago, before the change of ownership, and the place was pretty sketchy, with lots of drainage problems. The new owners have done a splendid job of cleaning up, re-grading, installing lots of huge (2 cubic yard) industrial concrete blocks to create retaining walls that work. We pulled into the one pull-through site and found it was dead level (with one degree, as measured), with no need for adjustment. Probably 2/3 of the sites are seasonal campers, but all those sites are well-kept, and you don't see any tired old campers that need to be junked. Management of the place is very unobtrusive, but even when the office/lodge is closed, there always seems to be someone about the place, working on maintenance. It's easy to find and to get in and out of the place, and the location is about half a mile off route 272, the main drag through the Denver/Adamstown area. It appears there is one planned activity each Saturday and another on Sunday, and in between those the pool provides plenty of "kid" appeal. There are some sites near the pool, but from where we were, the noise from children at play could barely be heard, and there was not a lot of highway noise, despite the proximity to 272 and US 222, which carries a lot of traffic. - Stan47

The campground has many trees throughout the park. The roads and sites are gravel. Roads are narrow and there are many obstacles (trees) that make backing into a site not easy. The entire CG is on a slope and the sites are not very level; additional leveling blocks are needed. There are many long term/permanent RVs with the usual over landscaping or excessive junk. It is generally quiet with only an occasional plane or faint train horn. Our first stay (3 years ago) was pleasant, this time was different; Labor Day weekend. Friday afternoon the CG filled up with noisy families looking for their end of summer trip. Management did not patrol the CG to monitor the barking dogs, children running around or make any attempt at enforcing the rules. The campsites are fairly large gravel but it still feels crowded. Picnic table, fire ring and typical 20/30/50 electric. Water quality is good but pressure varied from 60 psi to very low. Basic cable channels from Blue Ridge Communications. Internet is free with strong WiFi signal but connections were slow at best and quite often did not work at all. T-Mobile hot spot did not work. The laundry room is in a basement with two tired looking top loaders; went elsewhere. Single stall showers in poor condition, same for the restrooms. The staff is friendly and competent in the office. The CG has organized events; Labor Day pot luck. This is one of the cheaper CGs in the area. - Wiyndog

Staff is friendly. Rates are cheap. Site has w/e/s and free Wi-Fi. Sites are nice enough, but a little small. Gravel throughout most of the campground. We stayed in row 'Tall Timber' right across from the bathrooms. I would recommend a different row because the bathrooms are older and were omitting a sewer smell a few times. The bathrooms were clean enough, but the stalls are very small. They also did not have any hand dryer or paper towels. I don't recommend this campground for kids, there is nothing here to entertain them. Campground is overall nice and quiet and this was our 2nd time camping here. - Camper_Girl

We really liked this campground. The owner was very nice and made sure we had a nice private roomy site. It was very quiet and peaceful there with room to walk the dogs. The park was very clean and the seasonals (there were many) were well kept. Nice landscaping around the whole campground. My only suggestion would be for the owners to invest in upgrading the bathrooms. They have seen better days and are not roomy at all. We used the facilities in the camper for the most part, but did use the campground bathroom before leaving. We will visit here again, as it is centrally located to antique shops and greenhouses. Lots to do. - elaine170

We had a very nice time at Sun Valley. We had no issues. Everyone in the office was very nice. Yes, there are a lot of seasonals but all were very nice. If I have to complain about something it is the size of the rocks in the roadways. Definitely tough on the feet while walking but we all managed.
Enjoy your stay and remember "it beats staying home." - grs34

We've camped here before and have always had a good experience. The staff is very friendly and professional. Mostly seasonals, but everyone we saw waved and said hello. We will definitely be back. - Mike in NJ

Rate reflects special Halloween weekend rates. They called us ahead of time to preregister and avoid lines at check in which was a great gesture. Entrance is gated. We stayed in 700 section. Sites are gravel, roomy and some leveling may be required. Picnic table and fire rings at each site. Bathrooms a little dated, but clean. Staff friendly,helpful and trusting. Prices for extras, e.g., firewood, visitors, etc. are reasonable, some of the best around. Safe, but liberal visitor policy unlike others in the area. If you enjoy Halloween activities, this is the better place. Great Haunted house followed by haunted hayride and trick or treating for the kids. Would recommend and will return. - JStrohec

Our first trip to Oak Creek, and staying on the N side of the Lancaster area. Upon arrival we were meet by a greeter at the entrance of the park and was qucikly escorted to our site and aided in backing in to the site. Site was located on the creek and was very nice with a great view. Enjoyed the proximity to the playground and the fishing pond to keep an eye on our children. Paved site was a bit off level but manageable. Tree covered spot blocked our satellite however the cable had many channels. Verizon cell service was marginal at best. Campground store had a lot of good stuff and also had a great selection of campground t-shirts including larger sizes. I would recommend Oak Creek. - SJEAGLES609

We stayed here over the July 4th holiday. Almost every site was full. Everyone we encountered was very friendly. The weather did not cooperate for us so we didn't get in the pool but we still really enjoyed ourselves. You can take a hike to the Devil's Den or fish anytime. I participated in the Digital Scavenger hunt with my teens. This was the most fun I've had in a long time. Searching the campground and posing with various items from a ketchup bottle to a doorbell and a squirrel. We even had to find a particular campsite. The rubber ducky races in the river were quite enjoyable too. Cheering rubber duckies to get through the rapids and rocks in the river to the finish line first. To finish our weekend, we participated in the golf cart parade with about 50 other golf carts meandering through the campground while onlookers cheered. We plan on returning again. - autismmom

This campground is CROWDED. Granted we were there July 4th weekend, but the place was packed. If you have a golf cart, and don't mind nonstop golf cart (at all hours) noise then this place might be for you. Quiet hours were not enforced. Lots of permanent sites. Playgrounds are not suitable for younger kids. The restrooms were amazingly clean, probably the most clean ive ever seen. I did send an email to the campground a week prior for help finding things to do in the area and got no response. It wasnt a horrible campground, but we wouldnt stay here again. - catchtanya

We have stayed at this campground several times before. It is a very well run park. Seasonals and staff are all friendly and all rules are followed. No speeding golf carts and no excessive noise!! This is the first time the weather allowed us to use the pool--it was nice and warm and quite clean. A bit disappointed, though, that on a holiday weekend the water slides were not open. The golf cart parade was a lot of fun as was the selfie scavenger hunt for teens and adults. There are quite a few activities as well as a church service to choose from. The local bakery comes and sells some yummy desserts as wellThere is a nice hunting trail opposite the lake that leads up to "Devil's Den". I recommend checking it out. The sites are clean and nicely spaced out so you are not right next to your neighbor. Most of the sites have quite a bit of shade as well. If you do rent a site and you are in the "D" section, I would suggest renting a golf cart as well as the hill heading down to the pool and store is quite steep. We already have plans to return next year. - autismmom

New ownership but campground is still nice, and also improvements and upgrades being done. New sites added and also rentals. They enforce the rules here, which is good, as it gets really crowded on the weekend. Lots of things for the kids to do. My only complaint would be the wagon ride at night and the excessive use of the air horns during the ride, I am sure the children like it but less is good. Most likely will return. - DBLR

We have stayed here twice and because of our last experience will not go back, nor will the two other families that went with us. The campground is quite nice; very wooded, three playgrounds, pond, lots of activities; that is why we chose to go back. The management is the problem. They are very rude and not accommodating. The hill to get to your site is also very hard to climb up unless you have a golf cart or drive. We rented a golf cart and they were very strict and nasty when we needed to fill up gas. - JJLJ

We stayed with a family group. Family said the bathrooms should be rebuilt. Water was shut off Sunday afternoon. I think they were repairing the system. Very nice clean pool. New owners, just arrived one month ago. Nice people. I would give them a chance to work on the improvements before I passed judgement. Wifi spotty at camp edge, but otherwise good. Playground. Activities. Remote and scenic. Farms and farm odors nearby. Creek is too shallow for boating or fishing, but the have a nice large pond for kayaks or fishing. - Denial Guru

Here in off season, park was not crowded, We had lots of space. The sights along the creek are nice but very close together. - doghouse traveler

Read post about here and let's not forget we're camping. Nice big level lot. Plenty to do with a very clean pool. You do have to bring your own chair, not the end of the world. Restroom by us could easily be updated to take care of the negative post but it was clean. We'll be back. - wpagejr

We stayed in C-loop - which are the nicest campsites in the entire campground (non-seasonal). The rest of the campground is full of junky seasonal sites. The playground equipment is very dated/rusty and falling apart. The bathhouses are dated and need to be upgraded. Separate shower stalls are next to the bathhouses - and you have to pay for a shower. Very limited sites with sewer, rest of the campground is water/electric. They have a very nice pool, but the Lifeguard took no initiative to control wild or unruly kids. Their fee schedule is set-up to cahrge extra for everything - visitors, use of your A/C unit in the summertime - that is the only downside on their rates. - Lspajm

This is a top campground. All roads are paved, sites are very nice, many sites have concrete pads. Pools are inside and out (continuous) two smaller pools/spray for little ones. Very nice snack bar/cafe. Store is very nice with ice cream parlor.
Has a very nice lake (about 6-8 acres) with OK fishing for the kids.
This place is very well kept and top notch, no nonsense. Alcohol not "allowed" but as long as you keep on site and quiet, no problem.
No HOBOs here, just top of the line seasonals and small trailer houses.
We go here at least twice to three times per year. - NJPerry

This resort is wonderful! We stayed at the red carpet sites. The camp store is really big and has everything you need. The restrooms were immaculate. They have a large pond where you can paddle boat and fish. The grounds at this RV Resort are beautiful and well taken care of. - queeniegirl

We have stayed at this campground multiple times. Each season, they make improvements to the park. The huge pool complex was jam packed this weekend. However, there were no rude people. Kids waited in line nicely for the diving platform, and no kids were running around unsupervisedd I also noticed that parents were actually watching their children or even playing with their children rather than being involved in themselves. This was a positive thing for me to see. The seasonal campsites are immaculate as are the grounds. We were extremely satisfied with our campsite on the hill. Staff is always friendly. We enjoyed the Gnome Cafe next to the pool for some snacks as well. If your campsite is up on the hill, I do recommend spending the extra money to rent a golf cart and I would put it on hold when you reserve your spot. It is a long walk down to the pool and activities. There were no loud noises, no speeding golf carts and no drunk adults. A very pleasant location to spend a weekend. This is one of the most peaceful and serene campgrounds we have had the pleasure of visiting. - autismmom
Jun 2009 - $40.00
This campground is overrun by golf carts. If you have kids, beware! Seasonal sites are allowed to have a golf cart. Many of them race around all day and play bumper cars. No beer is allowed off of the campsite. It looked like a golf cart convention blocking the office doors when I went up for firewood. Everyone had a beer and cigarette on their golf cart. Very unsafe to drink and drive. Believe me, these people are juiced up. Kids try to feed the ducks at the pond and the drunks come racing past to scare the ducks away. Roads are very bad with many holes. Many sites get flooded. This owner needs to improve his safety and conditions for this campground. - Jakari

Camped here Memorial Day Weekend, 2009. Minimum reservation of 2 nights which is reasonable. Site was not level, but saw that most sites were level. Our site, though not level was creekside and was very private and very beautiful. Overall, the campground was very well maintained. Only two major complaints: during the day we did have some kids playing in the creek behind our site, which was essentially part of our site. Also, the campground is obviously geared toward seasonal campers, and there was NOTHING to do. No trails, nothing. Would be great for families with kids, and the staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. We were very pleased with our experience, just wish there were more activities for adults on the grounds. - KStar1926
