This is a relatively primitive campground, is steep and surrounded by trees. Beautiful. A hike to Otter Creek is magical, with beautiful flowing water and dark woods. Kids can wade in the creek. The campground is well-run and the staff is very friendly. Electricity is reliable. No Wi-Fi is available. There is not much to do in the area except Indian Steps Museum, which is a diamond in the rough. It is worth spending several hours there. There is a nice ice cream shop about 5 miles away. The beef barbecue that they serve is of average quality. We camped at Otter Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Campground was nice and quiet. Close to the river but not on the river. It was a very clean and VERY friendly place. They had catered barbeque which looked and smelled great but we didn't take part. The trails were nice but could use a little maintenance. We have a Class C and fit very easily in the site. It wasn't perfectly level but didn't take much to level out the rig. They said the staff would assist if I wanted help. It was a very good experience. We camped at Otter Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Magical. This is the best word I can think of to describe this campground. Surrounded by water, the Susquehanna River in the front, Otter Creek on one side, Sawmill Creek on the other. The hiking is incredible, The Mason Dixon trail goes right through the campground. Otter Creek sports 3 small beautiful waterfalls, which you can see by hiking the nature trail. Urey Point (up the road with a nice parking area) offers an incredible view of the Susquehanna River and dam. There is a nice one mile hiking trail here for the person who doesn't want a long hike. The sites are huge and rustic. Exactly what we prefer. Trees and wildlife abound. A bear even visited the camp while we were there! Bird watching is at it's best, we enjoyed the bright red cardinals frolicking and playing amongst the majestic trees. The campers are friendly and happy. We made many lifetime friends in the 2 months we stayed here. The washers are large and the dryers rock! No damp clothes here! Bring your canoe, the river is as smooth as glass in the evenings. Pull up to an island and watch the deer, crane and many other species of birds of prey. Right down the street is an Amish farm for all your fresh veges, fruits, canned goods, baked goods and cheeses. This is the perfect destination to camp and check out the Susquehanna River cities (Wrightsville, where the covered bridge over the Susquehanna River was burned down during the Civil War) Gettysburg, Harrisburg, York, Hershey's Chocolate Factory and Lancaster County with all it's fabulous Amish towns and doings. PA-124 is a perfect Harley riding road! Curvy and smooth, no stop lights and lots of whoop-de-doos! As for the camp directors I can't thank them enough! They go out of their way and take the time to get to know you and make sure you are comfortable. I wish every campground we stayed at had such personable hosts! Love you guys! In 8 years of traveling with my husband for his work this is by far my favorite campground! Sure hope we get another job out this way, Pennsylvania is wonderful and so friendly! P.S. We are from the mountains of Montana, this camp rates right up there...which is hard to do given that we have the best in Montana. Kudos to the camp directors. We camped at Otter Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of the best places we have stayed anywhere. The facilities are not new but are in good condition. The park's location on the Susquehanna is great for a weekend on the water. It is only an hour from Baltimore, yet seems a world away. The directors are always around and know what families want in a campground--clean, quiet, with some things for the kids to do. We were especially pleased that the seasonal section, which we were camped next to, did not contain trashy units and unsavory people, as is common in many otherwise nice campgrounds. With the exception of freight trains on the far bank of the river, and the occasional motorcycle going down the road, this is a really peaceful place. The minor drawbacks: small playground and game room; our water and electric hookups were far from the RV. This may not be the case for the other sites, but some of the pull-through sites have this issue. Access roads are in need of paving, but they're OK. Signage on the access roads could be somewhat improved. Cell phone reception is not good due to the campground's location. We enthusiastically recommend this campground! We camped at Otter Creek Campground in a Motorhome.
