Very nice, clean park from what we saw. We only stayed overnight, as we were en route to our destination in Lancaster County, PA. Our pull-through site was gravel and not level at all. It was aimed uphill and was not overly wide. So if we'd had neighbors, it would have been tight. However, we would stay here again. It seemed like there were lots of things to do here, but we just didn't have time to enjoy them. We camped at Friendship Village Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice campground that has plenty of activities for the family. Restrooms and showers clean but old. Appears to be a lot of seasonal campers. Sites are gravel and fairly level. Cable and Wi-Fi typical of large campgrounds. Good for an overnighter. Services at store could be better as the young ladies seem to be confused on prices and sites. We camped at Friendship Village Campground in a Motorhome.

Be aware that you have a full stop right hand turn into the campground road off Rt 30, coming down a hill. Not a difficult turn, but it will come up on you and you need to be looking for the road and not going too fast to slow down sufficiently. Very nice campground with super friendly staff. Lots for kids and families to do, including 2 swimming pools, kid's night that included laser tag, mechanical hog ride (an inflatable), club room, gospel sing, and mini golf. There was an abundance of golf carts in this campground; more than I have seen anywhere else. And we noted that some of the seasonals/long term had elaborate and pristine sites (even concrete pads). Nothing looking shabby or neglected. Our site was pretty narrow - that was a negative, but our neighbors were very nice and friendly. Had to shift the coach a couple times to accommodate opening our awning on one side and not having our slide hit the utilities hook up post on the other side. We camped at Friendship Village Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We picked this campground based on reviews, a personal recommendation, and because we wanted to go see the Flight 93 memorial, which is an easy 30 minute ride right up Rt 30. Highly recommend this side trip. Planned to arrive and set up in time to get a free guided historical tour in town (3:30 - 5pm on Fridays). But, unfortunately, we arrived at the campground just before 3pm.

Very clean campground. Can hear road noise in sites in the lower section. We stayed in a pull-through site with full hookups. Good power, water, cable, and Wi-Fi . Would have rated all 10s if the roads where not so dusty. Would stay here again. We camped at Friendship Village Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed 1 night while traveling through as it met our needs to see the nearby Flight 93 Memorial.

The park is adjacent to US-220/I-99 but the access is a little interesting depending on which direction you are coming into the park from. The greatest obstacle to reaching the park is the transition off BUS US-220 onto the access road. The transition creates a significant angle which posses a possible high centering or a scraping hazard.

While the park appears well cared and the sites are open, it was built on a sloped hill. This is another park that doesn't understand the simple concepts of the importance of a flat, level site and that sewage doesn't flow uphill! The interior roads were gravel. The roads were very narrow with tight 90 degree turns. Even the two-way roads were narrow. The sites were gravel, narrow, but nowhere near being level. Our mud flap was damaged when the coach sat down on it trying to get level. The utility connections were about mid way down the sites. But the sewer fitting was on the uphill side of the site and the connection was several inches above ground which created an uphill run. The sewage didn't flow well. It seemed most of the sites had an outside table and fire pit.

Our site was towards the center of the park so there were no obstructions for the roof mounted satellite dish. But the trees in and around the park could make satellite reception hit or miss depending on site assignment and your dish configuration. Didn't try to receive any broadcast channels. There was an extensive list of cable channels.

WiFi reception was good but that could be impacted by site assignment & volume of occupants. There were a lot of open spaces when we were there.

No designated pet area but there was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park roads and on the ½ mile walking trail around the "five acre lake". There were a bag dispensers and cans to collect waste. We camped at Friendship Village Campground in a Motorhome.

It was quite a drive to get to the Flight 93 Memorial and back in the afternoon on the day we arrived. The roads between the park and memorial are not the best.

This park is enormous, spotless, very well maintained with a friendly attentive staff. BUT..not all spots are created equal. We called for a reservation months ago and I feel like we were given this spot (323) because they knew that we wouldn't know what we were getting and no one else would take it. There was about 3 feet of grass between us and the motor home next to us and the fire ring was literally under the motor homes slid out. Yes, they came and immediately replaced it, but why do you put people with reservations in this spot w/o telling them what to expect! You can't tell me there was nothing else available when we made the reservation. We barely had room to open our awning and our table was right next to the sewer hook up and in the hot sun since we didn't have enough room to move it under the awning. Not very appetizing to say the least. The space was so tight that there was no breeze and with only one small tree you couldn't sit outside on a very hot weekend. Every other spot I observed in my walks had open spaces with room for tents, canopies, chairs and large parties. I called the minute we pulled into the spot, but of course there was nothing else available. There are other smaller campgrounds in the area and we will look into these when we return in the Fall. I feel like they took advantage of us not knowing what we were getting and I'm VERY disappointed and will not return. We camped at Friendship Village Campground in a Motorhome.

A very nice, large park. Interior roads and sites are gravel. Pull thru sites are very large and well spaced. All utilities worked well. Staff very friendly and helpful. Lots to do in the area and a lot of planned activities in the park. We would definitely recommend this park and are looking forward to a future visit.

We needed a one night stay on our way to Baltimore. We had driven all day to beat a timeline we had. I made a quick call at 8pm to see if they had any place we park for the night. The area we were in had very limited campgrounds so we couldn't get there until 9:45 and we were 65ft long. We had a 40ft Prevost motohome pulling a car trailer. We were willing to detach but they were determined to find us a spot so we could keep attach as we were on a time crunch and would actually be back on the road by 7am. They put us up next to a shed with electric so we could run the air conditioners. It was really late but the guy helped us back in to the spot and said if we wanted there was a sewer hook up if we needed to dump. They were so accommodating and friendly I wish we could have stayed. The regular sites were good sized, all hookup options available. Very family friendly. They had a nice store with all the occasional camping needs. The drive from the highway was a bit confusing but was occasionally marked with a campground sign just as you would start to wonder if you were going the right way. Once there it was easy. I would definitely come here if we were in the area. They definitely loved what they do, and are willing to help. We camped at Friendship Village Campground in a Motorhome.

Most interior roads are pot hole gravel as well as site driveways. We drove our tow car to scout a site suitable for our large rig. Many sites were not very level, but we found a good site. This campground is family oriented. We camped at Friendship Village Campground in a Motorhome.

We had 50 amp back-in gravel/grass site 402C. We leveled easily, utilities worked fine and we were happy to find MSNBC on the cable. Verizon 4G was strong and the park WiFi was pretty good - above average. We had a good shot for our satellite dish. The grounds and facilities were very clean and neat. The staff was friendly and helpful. We are Geocachers and were glad to find one in the campground. Our only complaint is that it is a little pricey at $45 per night - no discounts that applied to us. We would stay again. We camped at Friendship Village Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Large park with lots for families and kids. Decent size fairly level pull-through -- ours would have been bigger had the folks next to us not had a smoky fire and gathering in our fire pit. Good water/electric/sewer/cable/Wi-Fi. Big place good for walking the dog. We camped at Friendship Village Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park with a wonderful staff. This place has really grown since our last stay, lots of new sites. Nice long pull thru site fairly level with good hook ups, lots of things for kids to do and a short drive to the Flight 93 Memorial. Short drive from the turnpike but following signs might make you question where your going but all turned out fine getting there, a little noisy from the roads but not real bad. We will return.

This is a large park well maintained. We camped here for one night. Had it been cooler, we would have taken the half mile walk around the lake. It looked in good shape. Would camp here again. We camped at Friendship Village Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a large and well maintained park. Lots of grass (neatly mowed) and many amenities (e.g., game rooms, pools, walking trails, etc.). We had major rainstorms while there and each morning the staff was immediately out re-grading roads, filling in washouts, etc. This was very good. The Wi-Fi signal at our site was very weak, making access to the Internet nearly impossible. The park is located near I-76, so there is traffic noise. We camped at Friendship Village Campground in a Motorhome.
