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. We camped at Oak Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Oak Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We had a decent sized pull thru (#330), it was a little unlevel, but not too bad. The utilities worked well. There are some pretty steep hills to get to the sites. This place is mostly seasonal, staff is friendly. The pool was great except for there was not enough seating for everyone and most people had to bring their own chairs. A few bath houses and laundry rooms located throughout the park. A lot of scheduled activities. The only real problem was a loud party a few sites down that went on well after quiet hours, security was not seen after 11pm. We would stay again.

This is a very nice campground. The restrooms were extremely clean. We had a nice quiet camp spot. The only reason for the drop in ratings was the fact that you could hear the race track in the distance. This was very annoying when you tried to sit outside and enjoy the campfire. The folks running the place are extremely nice and friendly. We had a very nice time camping there. I would go back again. We camped at Oak Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Good clean and quiet park in PA hills. Must drive several miles of twisty little roads to get there, then one steep hill inside campground-just take it slow. About 8 miles from nearest grocery store. Most of park are seasonal sites. Back-ins and pull thrus are big rig suitable. Sites are not level, but most looked close enough. ATT voice & data weak and Verizon 4G. Camp Wi-Fi and cable worked fine. You must haul your own trash to the bottom of the hill. No mail pickup. No rate discounts except for weekly 1 night free.

Stayed Labor Day weekend with another couple. We called 3 weeks before Labor Day weekend to see if by chance they had any openings, the girl that answered the phone could not have been nicer. She accommodated us with no problems. We had site 107 along the creek & site 115 which is adjacent. Both sites were fantastic. Bathrooms & showers were immaculate. Definitely will be back. Only reason they are getting a 9 - the store closed at 5pm on Sunday night which I find a bit odd for a large holiday weekend, but we were able to get firewood by placing money in a slot in the office door. Very very nice setting, cant say enough about the site along the creek. Very large & spacious. would recommend to everyone. We camped at Oak Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We have been camping at Oak Creek for a number of years. This is by far our favorite campground. It is immaculate & very well maintained. Clean restrooms & showers. Very friendly, helpful staff & owners. Permanent sites are clean & well maintained. All are very friendly & welcoming. There are many activities at the campground & much to do locally. Campground staff very helpful in giving info & directions to local area. Quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Great family campground. We camped at Oak Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice campground. Lots of seasonals, but well kept. The campground itself is well cared for. It has some macadam roads and the rest gravel in very good condition. Transient sites seem to be mostly gravel. A lot here may depend on what site you get. Some are quite large, some you may be a little closer to your neighbor than one would wish. I had a full hook-up site with no problems and easy access. Everything worked as it was supposed to. Cable good, Wi-Fi strong. Sites are shaded for the most part. The campground is hilly, but the sites appeared to be quite level for the most part. Since I had a nice big site, the only con was the loud campers on either side of me, but that wasn't the campground's fault. Quiet time was observed. Bathrooms were immaculate, with none of that push-button water nonsense one finds these days. When will people learn that efforts to limit water supply just makes for longer showers! The big hill everybody mentions was not a problem. If you walk it, just take it slow coming up. I will return. We camped at Oak Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Could've been a great weekend, but it was tainted by the staff. It was a great family weekend. 5 families in all with two being cabin renters, and three RV's. Seems to be a family run operation. The son patrols in a security vehicle and tends to stop and stare until you feel the need to ask him if he needs something, or if there is something wrong. Very uncomfortable especially if you're there with children. His mother seems to run the place. She speaks at you in a way that suggests she is extremely busy. Very direct, very abrupt, and very rude. Adds a big smile at the end of it as if she really wasn't irritated by your presence. Cabin renters were escorted out of the park at 1pm sharp as per the rules. Were not permitted to assist the family campers with packing up who's check out was 3. The place was empty, we asked if we could pay something to stay another hour, and were definitively put in our place. It's a shame. It's a nice clean place, but the staff, especially mom and son, really need a lesson in how to treat and interact with people. The park is beautiful, nestled in the woods and along a stream. It has clean gravel and paved lots. It's nice because it has steep hills and also flat land. Everything there is nice except for the owner. She was abrupt, impatient and rude to 5 different people on our trip when asked simple questions. Her attitude was the same 2 years ago. Sorry, won't be going back :) We camped at Oak Creek Campground in a Campground Cabin.

We stayed here over Memorial weekend with three other families. All of our sites were laid out nicely and you did not feel as if you were sharing a site with your neighbor. The bathrooms were very clean, air conditioned too. The employees were very nice as well as the seasonal campers. This is one of the more dog friendly places I have been in a long time. The creek has several places deep enough for a lab to swim and enjoy him/herself. There were many owners with dogs all of which were well behaved. The pool is on the smaller side for the size of the campground, but very clean. They have several activities going on throughout the day and always try to make it a family event. The one thing to keep in mind about this campground is that there is a big hill that separates the top half and lower half sites. They do not have golf carts for rent, so you either drive down to the activities or walk, sometimes you just have to plan ahead, but there is always plenty of parking if you decide to drive. The lake is on the smaller size, but has tons of fish: Sunnies, catfish, carp, etc. Although none of the fish we caught that day really amounted to much more than 5 inches or so, it was great to see the kids (even the big kids) enjoy themselves and actually catch something. There are two-three different park areas in the campground all of which are placed around activities to help keep the little ones happy. I would stay here again on a short weekend, where we do not want to travel far. We camped at Oak Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Campground was clean and quiet. The bathrooms were immaculate, heated and air conditioned. Daughter enjoyed the pool, arcade and playing in the nearby creek. Will definitely recommend, and stay here again. We camped at Oak Creek Campground in a Tent Trailer.

This is one of our favorite campgrounds. We use it for weekend trips and extended trips also. The staff is very helpful and friendly and offer tips of places and things to see in the area. They offer large wooded sites and very well kept. They book early so plan ahead. We camped at Oak Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Camped there, first time out and was really ok. Yes, there is a big hill but once you're up top, nice roomy sites. Bathrooms are ok, nothing to brag about, and the ones up top were ok to shower and use. Staff was nice, store was ok, had a great weekend with 2 guests for dinner. Would go back, not a friend of owner either,haha... We camped at Oak Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

We live close to Lancaster and enjoy visiting new campgrounds in the area. We recently spent a night at Oak Creek. Overall, we had a great time. The majority of sites were bigger than most and had a woodsy feeling, without being dark and gloomy. There were a few sites that had no trees and were somewhat small, but most sites were great. There were several well maintained playgrounds scattered throughout the park, and the swimming pool was a good size and well kept up. The store was adequate, and the staff was friendly. We spent about two hours walking around the campground-what we saw-quite a few seasonals, but all of these spots were clean, and everyone we saw waved and said hello. There is a creek near the front of the campground. I wanted to dip my toes in, but the sides down to the creek were rather steep, making this difficult in most areas. A previous review mentions a big hill. Yes, there is a big hill, but I thought this review meant that campsites were on the hill. They are not. You drive up the hill and come to flat land where there are additional sites. We walked up the hill and arrived at the top a bit winded, but heck we were camping; there are hills. Only one major disappointment--the bathrooms and showers. We visited three different bath houses/showers. The one near the office was clean, but the other two we saw, at the top of the hill, were filthy. Filled with dead bugs and dirt. Our daughter is not a huge fan of navy showers in the RV and will head to a bathhouse if it is clean. She didn't head anywhere this trip. Since the rest of the campground was so nice, this surprised me. Other than this, Oak Creek was a nice campground. We camped at Oak Creek Campground in a Motorhome.
