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. We camped at Sill's Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Sill's Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We enjoyed our stay at this campground. Sites were graded well. Campground is well kept by the owner, who was very friendly. We stayed in pull-through site. Ample room between the sites. Will return when revisiting the area. We camped at Sill's Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This was a good CG close to Reading, PA. We stayed two nights in a large pull through site that was easy to level on and very spacious. There are a large number of seasonal and permanent residents, we met several of them that were very nice and accepting of us. Overall a good clean CG to visit. We camped at Sill's Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We found the staff to be excellent, helpful, and thoughtful. They were seen throughout our stay working hard to keep the campground clean and campers happy. Parts of the campground had a very strong septic smell. Dogs and people were louder than we expected, but were quiet during quiet hours. Road noise from the adjacent highway was noticeable, but didn't bother us. Wi-Fi is available, but we were unable to get either of our laptops to work with it; (they have worked at many other locations). There is only one bathroom with shower. I only entered that building once, but was overwhelmed by the heat and septic smell. We had made a last minute reservation, and a pull through was not available, the spot that we were placed in had several tree stumps that made parking difficult, the staff did escort us to our site and help us with getting situated. We camped at Sill's Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice quiet park. We stayed for five nights. Site we had was wide enough to park our F150 beside the trailer. Park is very handy to the Reading Outlets and Lancaster county Amish Country. No problem with hook-ups. Will stay here again on our next trip up-home. We camped at Sill's Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is an OK campground but not great. We spent a weekend here so we could kayak at Blue Marsh Lake nearby. The sites were fairly tight and not very private, hookups were oddly placed and required us to borrow a 30 amp extension cord from the office. Also, the road noise mentioned in other reviews was always present and quite loud at times. We'll probably look elsewhere when heading to this area again. We camped at Sill's Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I would concur with previous recent posts. Wonderful owners. Lots of permanent sites, however. One major complaint was the high cost: full hookups, cable and two children came to $48.50 a night. Too many other campgrounds in Lancaster County which are cheaper, feature wider sites and are not next to a major highway. We camped at Sill's Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Everything recently said about this campground on this forum is true. My wife and I stayed here for the 4th of July weekend. Extremely friendly and helpful owners who returned to visit our campsite shortly after we settled in to make sure everything was OK. Our only concern (not complaint) was that there is only one main bathroom with 2 showers. They were cleaned daily; however since they are used by many campers, they really need to be monitored more than twice a day to ensure nice presentation when next camper comes in to use them. Many planned activities. Very quiet at night. We plan to visit them again. We camped at Sill's Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Previous review was right, these were the nicest campground owners. Owner personally showed us to our site and helped us back in. Not just for us either. It gave the feeling that they really cared. I think this campground has a lot of promise, I don't know the condition of this campground in the past under previous owners, but these folks are headed in the right direction, they are working hard to make improvements. This campground gives you the real "family campground" feel. We will put them on our return list We camped at Sill's Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.
