This is a nearly perfect campground in a beautiful part of Pennsylvania. It is tightly controlled, but very clean and friendly. The cable is free, as is the Internet. Both are extremely strong...the cable has a hundred or so channels. Knoebels Amusement Park is 1.5 miles down the road. The ice cream store across the street has the best quality I have experienced, nearly anywhere. The only negatives are a small pool and office with limited supplies, due to size. It's quiet for adults and with Knoebels so close, a dream for kids. We camped at J & D Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

We were here last year and the staff is still friendly & helpful.Sites are level, good hookups,good tv & cell reception, just up the road from Knobles amusement park.Have a small pool but nice. Restrooms clean.Only down side, office is tiny with very little supplies other than candy & marshmellows.So bring what you need, any parts or supplies will be about 1-1/2 miles or so away.Great ice cream place across from camp. We camped at J & D Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

This is a well planned family run campground. All sites are fairly level with a gravel surface. All the office people were very accommodating especially with our request to have some cousins stop by to visit with us. They have a very strict 5 mph rule which seems to be enforced just at the beginning of the campground where all the sites are seasonal/permanent campers. The speeder gets yelled at very loudly. This enforcement could be handled in a much nicer, more civilized manor. We camped at J & D Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

We spent 4 nights here because Knoebels was booked full and it was the company picnic weekend. The staff was friendly, and it was a nice quiet campground. Made it here after dark and pretty much at the time the staff was going home. Checked in and they offered to stick around and help get us backed in if I needed it, although that wasn't necessary. Nice little stream running very close that the kids and dog played around in on the last day. The sole purpose of the trip was to spend time at the amusement park, which was less than 5 minutes away. I wouldn't hesitate for a moment though to come back to this park just to relax. We camped at J & D Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

This was our fourth time here. They do have weekly or monthly rates which make it less expensive. While not a fancy park it is very well maintained and the owners and their family take pride in the place, are very friendly and helpful. Lots of shade but trees are very well trimmed for big rigs. Also plenty of open space and room for groups to have active games. Nice mini-golf, playground and pool - with a lifeguard! New free Wi-Fi this year and it works great! Small selection of food and RV parts in the office and a Creme-freeze across the street. We plan to return. We camped at J & D Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice campground. The sites are very nice and shaded, the facilities are clean and modern, the pool is great. The wireless internet service works very well (a feature the was very appreciated when some severe storms were approaching), and the staff is very friendly. The best feature: NO GOLF CARTS racing around! Situated very close to Knoebel's Grove and other attractions, makes this a prime staging area for a great family vacation. We definitely will come back again. We camped at J & D Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

We had been trying to get to J & D for two years and finally found reservations for this past month. The park is VERY clean and quiet. Knoebels Amusement Park (wonderful by the way) is literally down the street from the campground, big plus if you have children. The pool was small but perfect for the children. Ice cream shop right across the street is nice. Our first impression was not that great because of the small office. Our site (16D) was also right across the dumpsters and hubby was not happy. A different site was offered a day later but by that time we had been set up and settled and we all know that that's not an easy thing to do. But with every disappointment, comes a bright side. We discovered a wonderful river right past the dumpsters and spent some time reading there. Overall, a nice park and would recommend it. Just don't expect it to look as nice as the website because it's not. We camped at J & D Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

Nice large lot. Has lots of shade. People were friendly. It had a great ice cream parlor across the street. Mini golf was available. No cable TV or WiFi, but really didn't need it as we were here to go to Knoebles. Bath house was clean and modern. Plenty of room for hiking and bike riding. You will enjoy your stay. We camped at J & D Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

Worth the time to travel to this campground from the Interstate. It is Big Rig friendly and has very helpful staff. We wanted something in this part of PA that was quiet and interesting to explore. Great campground. Will visit again. We camped at J & D Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

A nice enough cg. We were parked in the back, right next to a huge grass field that my husband enjoyed flying his RC plane on. While our site was one of the ones closest to the road, there was very little road noise. Really, the only problems were smells (mostly from a neighbor's poorly connected sewer hose: it had plastic wrap over it!!) and variable water pressure (although most of the time it was good enough). A bit pricey (we were NOT here for Knoebels), but fortunately our Verizon aircard worked OK here, so we didn't have to dish out another $3/day for their WiFi! We camped at J & D Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

Spent a nice quiet weekend for early season trip to Knoebels Amusement Resort. Always enjoy our stays here and they continue to improve the park. They now have WiFi for $3 per day or $5 for the weekend. The nice lady at the desk said it will be free next year (2011). Even though very few people were here, the bathrooms were well kept and very clean. We camped at J & D Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

J & D Campground is one of our favorites. Although strict on rules this did not affect our stay. It is actually welcomed, some places are just too lackadaisical. We always look forward to our yearly stay! We camped at J & D Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great campground just down the road from Knoebel's Amusement park. Much closer than Lake Glory if you are looking for sewer hook ups. They are strict in their rules (don't mess with the grass) but we didn't have any problem with that. There was a bit of street noise at our campsite, but nothing too bad. Everything was clean, the pool and playground were nice. Wish it hadn't rained so much so we could have enjoyed it even more! We camped at J & D Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.
