This campground is overrun by golf carts. If you have kids, beware! Seasonal sites are allowed to have a golf cart. Many of them race around all day and play bumper cars. No beer is allowed off of the campsite. It looked like a golf cart convention blocking the office doors when I went up for firewood. Everyone had a beer and cigarette on their golf cart. Very unsafe to drink and drive. Believe me, these people are juiced up. Kids try to feed the ducks at the pond and the drunks come racing past to scare the ducks away. Roads are very bad with many holes. Many sites get flooded. This owner needs to improve his safety and conditions for this campground. - Jakari
Camped here Memorial Day Weekend, 2009. Minimum reservation of 2 nights which is reasonable. Site was not level, but saw that most sites were level. Our site, though not level was creekside and was very private and very beautiful. Overall, the campground was very well maintained. Only two major complaints: during the day we did have some kids playing in the creek behind our site, which was essentially part of our site. Also, the campground is obviously geared toward seasonal campers, and there was NOTHING to do. No trails, nothing. Would be great for families with kids, and the staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. We were very pleased with our experience, just wish there were more activities for adults on the grounds. - KStar1926
Staff is friendly. Rates are cheap. Site has w/e/s and free Wi-Fi. Sites are nice enough, but a little small. Gravel throughout most of the campground. We stayed in row 'Tall Timber' right across from the bathrooms. I would recommend a different row because the bathrooms are older and were omitting a sewer smell a few times. The bathrooms were clean enough, but the stalls are very small. They also did not have any hand dryer or paper towels. I don't recommend this campground for kids, there is nothing here to entertain them. Campground is overall nice and quiet and this was our 2nd time camping here. - Camper_Girl
We really liked this campground. The owner was very nice and made sure we had a nice private roomy site. It was very quiet and peaceful there with room to walk the dogs. The park was very clean and the seasonals (there were many) were well kept. Nice landscaping around the whole campground. My only suggestion would be for the owners to invest in upgrading the bathrooms. They have seen better days and are not roomy at all. We used the facilities in the camper for the most part, but did use the campground bathroom before leaving. We will visit here again, as it is centrally located to antique shops and greenhouses. Lots to do. - elaine170
This park is on a hill, so its a downhill drive to the side roads where the sites are. There is a few pull through sites behind the office. All others are back in sites with gravel. There are a lot of trees, so maneuvering through the CG can be tricky. Lots of seasonal campers, some of which should be towed away because of their condition, utilities are all good, free Wi-Fi too. Its not a bad campground, it would be better of some trees were removed along the roadway where you turn in to the sites. - oldelmer1
We enjoy camping here. We like the pull through sites on the hill near the pool. No sewer connection up here though, but very quiet. Most sites are shaded and spacious. The park is clean and everyone is very pleasant. A lot to do outside of it; Renaissance Fair, outlets, wineries, Green Dragon Flea Market etc. Also, off season it is very cheap to keep your trailer on site for a week. Loved going up the next weekend and not having to tow the trailer. - Kim B.
Overall, the campground is just okay. The roads are horrible. There are a lot of potholes on the entry road and throughout the campgrounds. The bathrooms were outdated. The free pancake breakfast on Saturday morning was a plus. Our full hookup site was big enough and easy to get into. We have camped here a few times over the last 25 years and the campground looks basically the same as it did 25 years ago. No real improvements at all. - RSR
Over the past two years we have camped here several times a year. We have camped along Horseshoe Drive, and up in the pull through sites. We thoroughly enjoy the pull through sites (water/electric only). Nice, quiet and spacious. On the weekends they have ample activities. This weekend was Critter Weekend with a pet parade and contest along with a reptile show and Mill Creek Search & Rescue Demo which we learned a lot! The staff is very friendly, along with the seasonal campers. We will definitely return! - Kim B.
Though I hate to do this I have to state the naked truth about what is going on at this camp ground. We have stayed here several years and in the last couple of years the camp has become filled with pipeline workers. These campers leave there trailers with a mess of items outside which makes the campground look messy. They get up and leave early in the morning, disregarding the quiet hours posted. And because the CG is almost full of "seasonal" workers the owner has increased the daily rate to $53. This rate is WAY to high for a gravel parking lot with no landscaping, a dilapidated toilet facility, and gravel roads so your unit becomes dust covered because of all the workers leaving and golf carts running around. Next year the monthly rate is to be done away with and a strict daily rate used - so over $1500 a month for a stay. I suggest going to one of the CGs close by - much nicer and a more reasonable rate. We will not be back! - Motorcycle Jack
The park has many permanent residents. I only saw a couple other motor homes. It was mostly trailers. We had 50 amp electric, but had problems daily with it blowing the circuit and shutting everything down. The cable didn't work at our site, but when neighbor left we plugged in to his, and it worked. (In fairness to the campground, we didn't report that our cable wasn't working.) We did report the electric and they checked it out and couldn't find any problems. We have never had a problem with electric at any other campground. The owners were nice, but I would not stay here again. - Longhorn Fan
We have found our new base camp in Lancaster County, with the improvements we see here. We camped here at least five years ago, before the change of ownership, and the place was pretty sketchy, with lots of drainage problems. The new owners have done a splendid job of cleaning up, re-grading, installing lots of huge (2 cubic yard) industrial concrete blocks to create retaining walls that work. We pulled into the one pull-through site and found it was dead level (with one degree, as measured), with no need for adjustment. Probably 2/3 of the sites are seasonal campers, but all those sites are well-kept, and you don't see any tired old campers that need to be junked. Management of the place is very unobtrusive, but even when the office/lodge is closed, there always seems to be someone about the place, working on maintenance. It's easy to find and to get in and out of the place, and the location is about half a mile off route 272, the main drag through the Denver/Adamstown area. It appears there is one planned activity each Saturday and another on Sunday, and in between those the pool provides plenty of "kid" appeal. There are some sites near the pool, but from where we were, the noise from children at play could barely be heard, and there was not a lot of highway noise, despite the proximity to 272 and US 222, which carries a lot of traffic. - Stan47
