This was just an overnight stop for us. We arrived after night fall and left at first light. The "pull through" actually consisted of 2 back to back sites. A dead tree next to the site, impeded our entry forcing us to unhook our tow. We would probably stay here again. We camped at Western Village RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was the 2nd or 3rd time we have been to this park because it's fairly close to my husband's sister's. It's been a couple of years since we have been here, and I don't remember being so disappointed in it before, but I sure was this time! I made our reservations several months ahead, knowing it was over the holiday. I had no problem getting a site, but they sure couldn't have given us a worse one! For a couple that was going to be there 8 days, vs just over the holiday weekend, you'd think they would have given us a nicer site, but no, they gave us one that had absolutely no shade at all, very un-level, and furthest out (#249) a back in, without cable, even tho it's advertised they have cable. We asked to move, but of course because of the holiday, no way. Once the holiday was over, the place was practically empty. I was not a bit happy. Will not come back here. There is another campground closer to Camphill, more expensive, but I'm guessing it's worth it now. We camped at Western Village RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The US Army Heritage & Education Center, is very near by in Carlisle and quite interesting to visit.

We were here with a rally. Very clean park, family friendly with safe playground, a jumping pillow (huge pool size) swimming pool. Restroom and showers located in one area so ask if you need near facilities. We only use 30amp but power was good. No cable that I could see but free wifi and I logged on to see the speed and seemed good. The site we were on was near pavillion 3, a nice large concrete one,our site was good for a smaller rig. Price reflects non sewer, also they keep their pull thru sites for transients since they are near the turnpike and I-81 Open year round. We camped at Western Village RV Park in a Motorhome.

Check in staff very friendly. Pull thru site long and wide enough as there was no one beside us. We did not hook up towed vehicle until out of our site and on main road due to trees in the way. Many areas for our dogs to walk which is important to us. Would stay again even though a bit pricey for overnight stay. We camped at Western Village RV Park in a Motorhome.

Well treed, park-like, clean, quiet park with many family amenities (arcade, mini golf, pool, playground, shuffleboard and more). Adequate width gravel roads and wide sites with trees limbed well. Some sites have trees at end of driveway that make access tight. Shower plumbing rusty and unsightly, but shower walls nicely tiled and clean, as were toilets. Lots of open space for dog walking. Expensive for an overnight, 30 amp, no sewer site. Would look for cheaper place next time. We camped at Western Village RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice clean Park. One of the drawbacks were the trees which blocked any chance of a satellite TV signal. This a large park so there was a lot of vehicle traffic and we were near the entrance. Getting in and out of the site was very tight even though it was a pull-through. We camped at Western Village RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for one week. Clean restrooms and showers. Nice swimming pool. Staff helpful and friendly. Had a back-in site which was level. Park activities such as bingo, etc. Jumping pillow for children. Roads easy to navigate. Grounds kept in good condition. Level site. No cable but had good reception on our satellite. Will stay here again when we return to Carlisle. We camped at Western Village RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park caters to seasonal sites - all year long - which means most of them are dated/trashy/homely. The roads are very narrow, and with trees at the end of every site along the road - backing into the sites (which are not deep) is very tough. We have a 35' TT and barely fit just the camper on our site. The pool was closed when we were there; the camp store is ok; firewood is way overpriced (and basically a bundle of pine bark pieces) - drive down the road a few miles for OAK firewood blocks. They like to up-charge for every little thing, and add all their little couple dollar charges for everything extra - beware. The campground was quiet, but it was also fall when we camped and was not in full use. I would not stay in the site we camped in again due to very tight quarters. We would return, but for a different site. It was not safe to have a campfire between campers - had to put the ring behind the campers. We camped at Western Village RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Price reflects the upcharge for 50 amp. I'm guessing that's also why we were put in a tight lineup with other rigs when all over the park there were open spots. We don't like being so close to our neighbors that our picnic table is practically under their slide. I had to use their laundry and thought that 3 washing machines were not enough for a park this size. The wifi signal was strong, a good thing since Verizon is very weak here. This park is very well kept and is expensive given that they have all the kids' amenities but on an 88 degree day in early September the pool was closed! We will find another park to go to next year as we head south. We camped at Western Village RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very friendly staff - made check-in pleasant. Campground had quite a few seasonal campers who kept their sites attractive. While the sites were adequate for large rigs, the turning radius to exit many of the pull throughs was inadequate. We ended up having to back out, because a tree blocked us from going out forward. I saw two other 38-40 foot motorhomes have great difficulty also. Sites were hard packed gravel/dirt and were level. Convenient to the Interstate, so might return if in the area.

Needed to stop for the night and found Western Village. Close to I-81. Park was clean, we did not use the bathhouse so can't comment on that. Someone was there until 10 PM on Fri and Sat night for late check-in. Nice park, would stay there again, longer if we were doing something in the area.

Rate is based on a weekly stay. Easy access on and off Highway 81. Convenient to Harrisburg. Sites are shaded and level. Trees are trimmed which is nice for Big rigs. Back-in sites in the rear of park are slightly larger and better for longer term stays. Half the park is seasonal. Will stay here again only because of location.

The staff is always so friendly. We stop here on our way south and then north every year. It is easy to get to and convenient. The showers and bathrooms are especially warm and cozy in the winter. We camped at Western Village RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here in the travel trailer while having some construction done on the stick house. This very well maintained campground is great for "on a moments notice" type or couple of day stays. They mostly can accommodate someone at all times. Just give them a call and they'll help you out. Sites without pull thru's are very tight with some mature trees often making maneuvering very difficult. Staff is pleasant, and thorough about making sure you know the rules. Very helpful and accessible. Wi-Fi is weak, no matter what time of the day. I could not stream video or even live radio streams without interruption. Emails, news feeds, and other media came through well enough. Over the air TV was terrible and I noticed a lot of satellite domes attached to the seasonal sites. Restrooms/showers were great. Some of the best I've experienced. Overall, this is a fair to good campground with some minor inconveniences. We camped at Western Village RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
