We had an absolutely WONDERFUL 2 weeks at the Gettysburg Farm RV Campground. There were many, very large, grassy sites with plenty of room to spread out. Full shade was available. If you don't need 50amp, or a sewer hookup (but free honey wagon), there is a huge long side of the campground right on the river that you can practically have to yourself during the week and some light weekends. Very family oriented with all kinds of animals, and weekend fun, but also still quiet and relaxing. About 40% seasonal but that is perfect. The campground wi-fi wasn't too good, but they are looking into getting better service. We just used our Verizon hot spot, and while ATT coverage was spotty, we were still able to do our telecommute jobs. Two downsides: 1) The shower houses need a little updating. Especially the one by the 30amp/no sewer side. 2) The laundry. Oh dear god the laundry. The 30 min wash load takes about 60+ minutes. Apparently the water pressure into the washers is horrible. Dryers were great though. :) NEITHER of these two downsides affected our stay at all. Just mentioning for the sake of information. Cannot wait to go back and spend 3 weeks next time. Absolutely a great campground, with friendly staff, and even friendlier goats. :) - WebErika

Clean, welcoming membership campground. Awesome, friendly staff who went above and beyond to make sure that we were pleased with our stay. - Happy Motorhomers

Quick friendly check in, clean grounds, well cared for. Didn't use PAY WIFI (even woman at front desk said it was Tengo and "it stinks" - supposedly they're looking at other options). We used our Verizon Jetpack with 3 bars LTE. No cable TV but we got about 15 stations on the antenna. Our site had a slight grade to it, about 3.5" low in front. Nice grounds for walking and some sites on the water. A fair amount of seasonals like most TT's but most were ok looking. Site was a "double pull thru" and whoever gets there first takes a larger spot and squeezes the other site tight. They really need a divider to set the middle boundry. - HomeOnWheels_US

I love this park. Beautiful views and some of the nicest people I ever met. Everyone treats you like family, The owner goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome. We had spot 57 which Is by far the best site there, right by the falls. Great fishing, ducks, wild rabbits, deer, and we even saw a mink. New showers and bathrooms, plenty of hot water, green grass that's kept very nice. Really, I can't say enough good things about this park. I wish we could have stayed longer. I understand the bridge is new so if you had heard the bridge couldn't withstand certain weights, that's no longer true. I don't know why this park isn't packed every weekend; except maybe its Dover' s best kept secret. We looked at all campgrounds near here and this one is top notch. - gypsysoul

Beautiful scenery...the bathroom facilities were unacceptable. There were wild rabbits running all around this place...even through the big puddles that were created when it rained. The man staffing the office was really nice and helpful. There is also a newspaper article hanging in the office about how the campground needed to be evacuated a few years back due to both creeks cresting their banks...interesting story, but questionable marketing practice to have it hanging in the office. - Dan Holdt

We stayed here when we visited hershey Park. The sites are grassy and a little hilly. They are close together with no buffer. Some of the tent sites are very close to the highway so request one not near the mini golf. The kids loved the mini golf even though it was a little run down. They also loved walking to the camp store and buying .25 ice creams. The store is well stocked with anything you may have left at home. We did not use the showers but the bathrooms were okay. Nothing great. They are centrally located. There is no hot water in the bathrooms. Each site comes with a fire ring and a picnic table. - mastro

Nice campground. Large majority of sites are taken by seasonal/full-time campers. I'd estimate 80%. Staff and campers were very friendly . Nighttime was quiet with no issues. Lots of golf-carts zipping around but they were courteous. Roads are a little tight at times for long trailers though just take your time. All spots are back-in, but room to maneuver so even us novices had no issues. GPS has us go route that had a bridge closed (about 5 miles from campground) for construction, so check road closures. Nice place, would definitely stay again. - StonewallFarms

This is by far one of the nicest campgrounds we have stayed at, the grounds were impeccable, beautiful lake, nice pool, clean grounds overall, the staff was incredibly friendly, activities for both adults and kids. The staff seemed to always be working to improve on something and could not do enough to help you out, stopped by our site a few times just to make everything was ok. Awesome, we will most certainly be back again! Manager Jaron was fabulous and Bonnie at the desk was most friendly as was the activities director!. Can't say enough good things. Seems they plan some upgrades as well. - cbushneck

One of the most attractive campgrounds we have ever stayed at. Rolling hills and lots of grass...Many permanent sites, well maintained and manicured. Transient sites clean and level mixed in make it very attractive. We stayed here in a motorhome. A car is necessary as you are several miles from attractions. - deacon_1

I spent the weekend of 8/19-20/2017 at Pinchot State Park while doing volunteer trail work within the park. My site was level, power was good even through 2 major thunderstorms, one each night, bathrooms were clean and the rangers, camp hosts and volunteers were very nice to me. Verizon cell service was good, OTA antenna picked up 10 channels in and near Harrisburg. This is an older park but has been well maintained. - User3064

Despite the fact that the restrooms were clean, it is hard to make something inviting that is out of date and needs remodeling. Crowded on the weekends, like most camps in the summer. If you have a 30+ foot travel trailer, wouldn't recommend the inner loop (very tight for trailer and truck parking). Had to disconnect to make it fit. Stayed 3 nights and enjoyed our time, these are just minor things to know in advance. - Rob Oglesby

Restrooms very old and in dire need of remodeling, however they were clean. We stayed in pet area, only 10 spaces were full hookup, other than those there was electric only on the outer loop no hookup on inner loop. Was was over 300 feet away from our site. This campground is in need of updating. Kind of disappointing as in most Pennsylvania state parks that there are signs that prevent you from walking your dog around the campground. Can only walk them in the pet loop. That meant having to drive to different location to get to the lake.
Beautiful lake, nice day use facility. Due to weather we could only take kayaks on the lake for one day out of 4, Too much Wind and rain.
Never saw a ranger or state park personnel. There were two camp hosts. Plenty of trash cans by entrance to park, No recycle containers.
Due to limited water hookups and the pet restrictions, We will not go back to this campground. - doghouse traveler

Year round park. Good wifi. New activities building. The park is undergoing a change from being a mobile home park, our site was gravel, but sloped towards the back. There was still plenty of room for our 35' motorhome to be fairly level, but this made it a long run to the sewer which was at the very back of the site (needed 2 hoses). Close to Harley Davidson etc. for tours. The new owners are working hard to make your stay enjoyable. Park stays full, we had the choice of only 2 sites, so call ahead. - D and M

We stay here when visiting our daughter's family. Friendly, small park. Making lots of improvements with aim toward becoming an "event spot". Grandchildren liked the waterfall, firepit and swings. - MamaBird

I have mixed feelings on this Campgroud. First the good. Sites are ok. Beautiful club house and fountain. Paved roads. Price is great. Now the bad. Highway noise, no site prep, ugly mobile homes, no on site management so the 5 mph speed limit ignored. I understand that this Campground is in transition from mobile home park to RV park, but it makes me wonder from the money spent on the club house if the owners are serious about being a Campground as our site, and most of them, do not even have picnic tables! I would hope that they will continue to improve the sites as they need gravel and leveled. Would we return? Maybe. - southwind2004

Lovely small private campground. Currently sitting out under the awning listen to the crickets enjoying a glass of whiskey. Quiet and peaceful. Close to York and the sites. Right on the York Heritage Rail Trail...a must do if your into rail trails. Manager recommended riding into downtown York (4 miles) and going to the farmers market and have lunch at White Rose Bar and Grill....both excellent recommendations. Check out the Harley factory tour. Lots of wineries around here so tomorrow we'll be wetting our whistles. Staying here on site 22 with out 36ft pusher, plenty of room and height. 20 amp electric may be a downfall for the novice camper but if you know how to do it there is no problem. Running our rear AC with no issues. Beautiful scenery and peaceful spot...grab some ice cream at the dairy as well. - Leon Condor

Just a basic CG. On the plus side, it is right next to a recreational trail that runs from York to the MD line. Gravel roads and pads are in fair condition. And it is quiet. On the minus side, not much for services. Unattended registration (at least on Friday). Very wooded and Not suitable for a tall rig (too many low-hanging branches for my 12.5'). There are only a couple sites with 30A electric and those were filled by what appeared to be long-term campers. The rest of the electric was 20A NEMA 5-15 (household type) outlets. The sewer connections were unusual... coming out of the ground at a 45 degree angle (not sure how I would connect my 90 degree elbow to that). Needless to say, we did not stay there and because there was essentially no 30A service, we will not be returning. If you are tent or TT camping and looking for some quiet, this might be your place. - FreeWheeler

We planned on staying here due to access to parks in York. However, after driving through decided to stay in Elizabethtown. The park has several old RVs (not sure if they are occupied). The restrooms are quite old (require security code to use), the connections are quite a distance from the sites. Wouldn't recommend this park. - Softball29

Arrived late and was directed to a site that was too small, and constricted by resident parking and a building. Redirected to an under construction site, which was a red clay mess in the rain. Of course, under construction not only means not surfaced, but not leveled. It had been a long rainy day, we arrived in the dark, and the setup here is not ideal from maneuvering a larger coach. In fairness, the lady attendant came out in the rain and helped us out. Kindness makes up for a lot of other little things. - nobghuri

The campground has mostly permanent campers. We were only passing through and just needed one night and then get back on the road again. When coming into the park we almost changed our mind about staying, but it's actually not bad once you get in. We had a nice spacious site with good satellite service and good wifi. The park is kept nice and clean, but a little tight getting in and out. There is no office, you have to go to #9 and the lady comes out and takes your payment. She was very nice though and walked with me to pick out a site. - Old Farts

nice little rv park, off the beaten path, but a good value, especially if a PassportAmerica member - easy backin sites, full hookups at most, with many 'campground' type sites also near the creek, in the woods.
good Wifi and laundry - the path through can be tight, with most vehicle parking along the path, and several partially into the path, but it's not a large park to navigate - also a nice setting for a stay in Southern Pennsylvania, near Gettysburg, Harrisburg, and Hershey. - hturnerfamily

This campground is as basic as it gets, besides just going out in the woods. It it mostly for scuba divers. This was a large rock quarry that has been filled with water for scuba diving. They have sunk a few neat things, like a bus, to make it interesting. I stayed here several times for my scuba certification. You basically just pitch a tent or pull your RV into the woods. No electric, no water besides at the main bath house. The biggest complaint is that in the middle of the night, there is a train that comes right through the middle of the campground, usually blaring its horn. It is very scary to be woken up by. The ground shakes and it feels like the train is going to run right over you. But, if you are there to scuba dive, you don't have much of a choice for places to stay. - justthe6ofus

Stayed here six nights last week of September - this is by far one of the best campgrounds we have stayed at this year. The campground was very clean and well maintained - no trash, no weeds, no ruts in roads. The bathrooms are the best I think I have ever seen - cleaned daily and plenty of hot water. Even with the campground just about full on the weekend, the staff kept up with the bathrooms. Plenty of activities for the kids as well. Would highly recommend. - dadseven

Stayed 4 nights to attend the Hershey RV show and Hershey Chocolate Factory. Follow the KOA sign, turn right, at junction N. Hanover & N. Market St. and avoid going thru town. Check-in confusing due to new work camper manning check-in. Owner/wife took care of situation and made it right. Family run CG with great customer service skills. CG is in a beautiful location in great shape, clean, mowed/fertilized grass, utilities and cable worked well. Garbage pickup onsite. Road leading up to registration is paved. Interior roads are easy to navigate with a 43' motorhome, gravel and well maintained. Our site was in a terraced area, PT FHU, gravel, with fire ring, picnic table and level in partial shade with good spacing. CG offers a free shuttle to RV show and Hershey factory with several morning and evening departures and pickups. Pool was closed for season. Did not use bath facilities but looked clean. Would stay here again rather than closer to Show or factory. - RTM

We stayed over Labor Day weekend in a 35 foot Class A. Extremely cleaned and well groomed landscaping. The staff takes great pride in maintaining the landscaping and grounds. Plenty of room in between each site. Bring a fishing rod - they have a pond out front with plenty of panfish and 10-12 inch bass. License not required since it is a private pond. - AeroDoc

Decided to stay at Codorus rather than expensive parks closer to Gettysburg. Some sites in trees, newer sites in open grassy area. Paved RV pad. Electricity at the site. Strange no sewer or water at the site. Person at check-in booth was a little surly, but other staff helpful. Two ways to get into park: 1) older entrance was near the swimming pool and then winds up hill, 2) newer entrance comes off road at separate entrance. It does wind around a bit so road lines up with registration booth. Attended Sunday worship service with state park chaplain. Would recommend park to others. - Al Z

We stayed at Codorus State Park campground the first week of July 2016. We stayed over the 4th of July weekend, so pretty busy as you might expect. The entrance to the campground can be challenging to find and google maps never seemed to get it right for me, so be sure to check your directions carefully. The entrance to the campground through the checkpoint is a bit of a mess and can be a bit difficult to navigate with a larger rig. We have a 35' RV and were able to manage OK, but I can see where it could be a bit hairy for larger rigs, 5th wheels or trailers. Plenty of the above in the park though, so they seemed to have managed as well.
The showers / restrooms are centrally located in each loop of the campground with garbage dumpsters nearby. The showers / restrooms are old, but very clean and there was plenty of hot water.
The campground has both non-electric and 30amp electric sites. There is no water or dump facilities at the individual campsites, though there is both fresh water and dual dump stations at the entrance to the campground.
In general, I don't think there's a perfectly level site in the campground. You can find some that are close to level and others that aren't even close. I saw a lot of blocks being used at some campsites to level rigs and trailers. I saw one motorhome that has nearly 6" off the ground on blocks. I'd say that about half the sites have asphalt pads and half have dirt/stone pads.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the park as there is lots to do at this park, especially if you like the boating and fishing on the lake (though there is no swimming in the lake). - lazyjourney

We've been coming here the past few years in the fall. It's a great state park and nice campground. The water park is closed when we come so I can't comment on it, but I've seen it and looks great. The lake is beautiful and we've rented canoes and had lots of fun. There are a few trails to hike. It's a very peaceful here with varying site types from wooded to full sun. - Way2Roll
