Knoebels is one of the best amusement parks anywhere. The rural location, nice and easy pace, pet friendliness and fun old fashioned rides will never go out of style. Even the concessions are reasonably priced. Lake Glory was an OK park. The staff was nice enough, the office and store was well stocked and the new game room was perfect for a family with tweens to teens. The sites where we were placed were not stellar. Back in was easy, hookups were good and only a little leveling was needed. There was no grass though. Our area was nearly all gravel and dirt. We have a rug so it was not too uncomfortable but for the price I desire better. They do offer a very useful shuttle service to the park and a local deer farmer visited with two awesome red bucks. We would have loved to have had the time to visit his farm. Next time we will try a different park closer to Knoebels. We camped at Knoebels Lake Glory Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed with a group of 5 sites. We were accommodated and placed next to each other. We were on site 80 with water & electric. It is a nicely shaded site next to a stream/creek that my kids enjoyed. Garbage pick up at your site each morning. Love Knoebel's. This is a yearly outing for us and we can't say enough good things about lake Glory. We also really Love the new store/game room. We camped at Knoebels Lake Glory Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here this past weekend and really enjoyed the surroundings. Grounds were spotless, and the sites were a decent size. We were along the stream, in a E/W/S site, and they were a little close, but very deep, so you still had room to spread out. There is a little bit for every kind of camping from tent to diesel pushers. Showers and bathrooms were very clean, and people were constantly cleaning. They do have a shuttle to the amusement park, but we decided to drive. Cellular use was fine. They also built a new office at the entrance and have a very well stocked store, and prices were reasonable; ice was $2.00 a bag. People were friendly and helpful, and security was present. Stream is stocked with trout. Only problem was that the playground needs to be upgraded. We will definitely be back here in the future. We camped at Knoebels Lake Glory Campground in a Tent Trailer.

We have stayed here numerous times to visit Knoebel's Amusement Park. We would not be coming here if it weren't for the theme park. It is a basic, fun place to hang when not at the park. They offer a free shuttle we have never used: just as easy to drive the 5 minutes and park for free. They are building an impressive new camp store. There is a stream that meanders through the campground. My kids love wading in and catching crayfish. A pool would make this place ideal. We would go to the park down the road, but they do not allow tents and a few of our friends that go with us tent camp. We stayed on Knoebel's Drive, site 80. Had a small stream and shade. We will be back for the park! We camped at Knoebels Lake Glory Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Just like most of the other comments - no real reason to stay here unless you are going to the park. The cc itself does not have much to offer. Been staying here for 5 years now. Highly recommend not staying near the pavilion. Whenever there is a function here the place gets lit up like a Walmart parking lot at night. At the time of our latest stay there was a 50th wedding anniversary going on that lasted well in to the night. A lot of rowdies from the party stayed up partying until 3am. There was no security around to subdue the behavior. Also, the lady working the desk could have been more pleasant. When checking in we found her to be pretty rude. So much so that even my 7 year old said something about her. She could use some lessons on customer service. Will think twice about staying here next year. We camped at Knoebels Lake Glory Campground in a Motorhome.

This is an average campground. The pluses are that the spaces are wide and easily accessible. The spots are grassy and clean. The quiet hours are enforced. The negatives are that the restrooms are filthy, there is no Wi-Fi or cable. We camped at Knoebels Lake Glory Campground in a Tent Trailer.

This was a very nice little campground. Only spent two nights there to sleep mainly as my grandchildren and I were at the Knoebel Amusement most of the day and early evening. We camped at Knoebels Lake Glory Campground in a Travel Trailer.

A nice campground without all the glitz and glamour. No activities for kids as most families spend their day at Knoebels. Small arcade available. A great mix of pop ups, tents, RV's and motorhomes. Clean showers and restrooms. Office open late until 11 pm. As others have said, it's camping the way it used to be. Guests can come and go as they please, staff are pleasant and available. If your site is available you can set up prior to checking in. Numerous shaded sites. Most sites are natural and not level. Shuttle service to Knoebels park runs frequently. No internet available at this time. Will return and recommend to others. We camped at Knoebels Lake Glory Campground in a Tent Trailer.

This is camping like I remembered as a kid. No restrictions on the number of people at a site, lots of tent and pop-up campers, no strict security, lots of kids and families around. The 'lake' is more like a large pond that you can fish in, and there is a stream for the kids to play in. I was able to drive right in, set up on my site, and then drove around to find the office. No security at all, not even car tags. But it is in the middle of nowhere, and I felt safe. The showers are very basic - no temperature control, timed push-button on a concrete slab, but they do the trick. Sinks and mirrors are outside (each bathroom and shower is an exterior door). The huge lure of this place is that it is only a few miles away from Knoebels amusement park - which is absolutely the most family-friendly and fun park for young and old on the east coast. If you're looking for something a little more gentrified, there is another park up the road, but I personally enjoyed the energy of Lake Glory. One hint - if you are coming from the south, ignore your GPS and come up through Elysburg (901 to 54 to 487), much easier (wider roads, less hills) approach.

Nice sites. We stay here every year to visit Knoebels Amusement Park. Not much to do in the campground, but the amusement park is awesome, and they have buses that shuttle you over to the park and back. Fire wood is cheap. Lake is nice to walk around.

Real nice campground. This is a campground owned by Knoebels and is only about 3 miles away from the park. Full hook ups are available here unlike Knoebels campground at the park. I used the restrooms while walking and they were clean and I even peeked in the showers to see how clean they were and they were very well maintained. Nice sites and very peaceful compared to the park's campground. A shuttle ran every hour to the park if you didn't want to drive. We will stay here again when returning to Knoebels!

We have just returned from our second stay at Lake Glory. We were put in a tent site (30' hybrid? Hmm). We were able to get in due to my husband's creative thinking and amazing driving skills. We wanted to stay, since it was next to the family we were camping with. Office wasn't sure how it happened? Lake glory is a basic campground, no frills but close to Knoebels. We love to be near the stream so the kids have something to do. The playground is "primitive" (home made). Stream is more fun. If it had a new playground, it would be great. We were on Creekside Drive sites 42 & 44. Next year, might try Lakeview Circle. Not a lot of shade on Covered bridge but that area is flat grass on the stream. We love Knoebels and will be back again. We camped at Knoebels Lake Glory Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This was our first trip to Lake Glory CG. We were very impressed with how large the sites were. The view of the lake was nice. There is not alot to do at the CG but the park is awesome for kids. The staff was very friendly. Depending on how you come into the park, the roads are very tight. There is a bus that runs to and from the park. The camp store is pretty small. If you are going to Knoebel's this is a great park to stay at. We camped at Knoebels Lake Glory Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We had a great time at the campground, nice, level and roomy spots. Took the advice from someone on this website and camped on Lakeview Circle and they were right, very nice location with the Lake right behind us. The playground was small and no activities when we went but the Amusement Park keeps you busy. Knoebels Amusement Park was a lot of fun and affordable. Pick the route to the area carefully, we came in from the east which was very hilly and left to the west and was a much better way home to York Pa.

The campground is well maintained and is close to Knoebels Amusement Park. They have a shuttle bus that runs to the park which is only a few miles away. The power was steady and the water pressure good. Most sites are either gravel or grass and there are sites under the trees and in the open. The two RV's per site and the no limit to number of occupants rule makes some sites a little over used and sometimes infringes on others. Also the one vehicle per site rule seems not to matter. This is a family friendly campground and because of the amusement park, has a lot of kids around. We would stay here again. We camped at Knoebels Lake Glory Campground in a Motorhome.
