Sites are gravel and level. Sites in the "P" block are long pull throughs with an amazing panoramic views. The sites are exposed to the elements and with temperatures nearing one hundred, the AC had difficulty in keeping up. More sites back in the trees reserved for weekenders. Staff was pleasant and efficient who knew the rule book and what rules. We know campgrounds have to have rules, but two full pages?
The gate security system is infuriating. One car out same car back in. My tow was being driven to our next destination so I walked back through the gate swiping my card which would allow me out the following morning with the RV. Didn't work: you have to be in a car to enter/exit!! Lesson: don't try and fool the system. - BRIDGEMAN

Rules. Rules. Rules. So many rules. And they nickel & dime you for everything. The pull throughs in section F were long. Very long. They could have fit at least two big rigs. The sites were about 80-100 feet long and not very wide at all. They should spray for ants and bugs. Even in a wide open section with no trees at all and a campfire going there were just too many ants. - boomer3

Park was very quiet. The terraced lots were very nice; however, being forced to pay extra for a lot that had a deck and a pick-nic table when we did not need one and being told there was no sites without decks available for us was a lie. There are sites available that have no decks. there was too many rules that were all No This, No That, etc. Get over it people. The best part of the whole stay was the nice even long pull throughs. I must say the lawn needed to be mowed. I only saw one employee down here at the end of the park where we were during a two day stay. The lady at the office was a bit rude when she made it clear she closed the office straight up 5:00pm. arriving late due to traffic tie ups we called her she said our pass would be in the mailbox..... awwww wasn't that nice. other people in the park were not very friendly. Getting here was a bit of a trick with all the hills and rough to handle curves with a 31 ft RV and a 20 ft trailer in tow. And the deposits for everything ...come on Stop trying to nickel and dime everyone. To charge a guest to come visit me while I'm in town is not good! I will not be back in this park, nor will I recomend it to my traveling friends!!!!! - Walter Pfiitze

This large, full service campground provides a pleasant and restful night while driving on I-81, and has possibly the most beautiful, modern RV park bathrooms I have ever seen anywhere. The office has good ice cream for sale, and those two things make me return and enjoy staying at this campground even though the price is higher than our usual overnight stopover. - NC Writer

Our site was not even close to level. Tried to use our levelers but had to settle for spending the night listing to port.
WI FI was pretty good but no cable TV and only a few OTA channels were stable enough to watch.
After dinner we thought we'd like to play some mini golf. I found out that it would cost us $6. After paying $45 for an uneven campsite with no cable TV I really do think charging for mini golf is over the top. - dhaney1944

Large, well kept resort type park. Roads and sites are well maintained gravel. Most sites are level. Convenient off of I-81. Our rate of $47 is for long pull thru, 50 amp, water and sewer. They have other options, e.g., back-in 30 amp, no sewer etc. A little pricey for an overnight but not much available in this area.
Many amenities such as pool, game room, shuffle board etc. All in tip top shape. Workers were very helpful. We will stay here again on our way through. - atwig

Office staff was very good and efficient. Ground crew was very good as well, cutting grass in the site that I chose prior to backing in. Overall the park was in very good condition and well maintained. Ice cream social was nice, as well as being on a Farm. Petting Zoo, for the younger crowd as well as the adults. The only "problem" that I found was the signage could be improved when approaching the campground. - md_procouple

We were assisted in selecting the best available site for our motorhome and in getting to the site chosen, and that was much appreciated. Older infrastructure overall in park, but well maintained. Lots of activities. Friendly & helpful maintenance staff. Very busy during fall season before park closes. Many sites occupied by longer term residents, thus not many sites to choose from for short-term stay. Most available sites grass and not level. Location is rural. Maybe the most important bit of info to report is the dangerous dropoff/ditch and poor pavement design at the right turn from Bermudian Church Rd onto Big Mount Rd when nearing the Park. - dndrv

Gettysburg Farm RV Camp ground. Appears as half the camper are permanent and the other half are "choose your site". Reservations mean nothing. We're reserved a full connection, with sewer. None of the remaining sites (over 40) had sewer, only electric and water. Sites are grass and soft clay. Motor home next to us moved 3 times before finding a level site where his jacks didn't sink. I'm glad we were here without rain. This appears to be normal reservation policy as none of the campers around us were told "choose your site" and you may not have sewer. Many nice camp grounds in the area. Would not have stayed if they didn't already have our full payment. Unfortunate that ethics are not part of the parks rules. WIFI is pay but couldn't get a connection to make my payment. Unable to review the bandwidth because I never made connections. - Metro Johnson

This is place is a "residential RV camper park" - it is dirty, run down, ducks everywhere (and their droppings), the staff was not nice at all. There are many "permanent" sites that clearly people live in all year and they are deplorable. The swing sets were covered in rust and barely work, there is a bridge over the pond that is ready to sink any minute. Go anywhere else than this place. Not impressed, and will never return. - Lspajm

The roads and sites were made of poorly maintained gravel, with washouts and ruts along with dust. The sites were sufficiently long enough for our 45 ft 5th wheel but levelling was a challenge. Dumpsters were overflowing several times during our week long stay. Heavily wooded. Could hear highway noise. The facilities were old, tired and poorly lit. Notified the staff of a low hanging large tree limb that was over the roadway and they said they were waiting on their tree guy. It was getting lower when we left causing us to exit the park going out the wrong way to ensure it would not hit our rig. Staff (primarily teens) was just weak in their response to questions or when seeking assistance. Did not use WiFi. It does not appear as if the owners are placing any maintenance funds in the park. Park appeared to be heavily populated with full time residents. Some living in tents with lean to's. Though we love Gettysburg, we will not stay here again. - Field Trip

We stayed in the back in a level pullthru site. The power was good, but water pressure was a trickle on the day we left. Cable was good. Some foliage between the sites. This campground is right off RT 15, and you can still hear road noise, even in the back section, though not nearly as bad as the front of the campground. It was early in the season, so the restaurant wasnt open yet, and the store did not have alot either. This is a huge campground so bring a bike or golf cart. - mahill526

We asked for a site way in the back away from the highway. The sites were well spaced. If the leaves were out on the trees, the cover between a lot of sites would be good. Despite being in the back corner, the highway noise is pretty loud, but that didn't take away from our stay. Water and sewer were well placed. Water pressure was 70 psi and the electric stayed steady at 122v. Cable provided 75 channels. Site 314 was perfectly level.
The reason I rated the park as an 8 was the value. We paid $59 + 10% tax each night for a "premium site". Our fire ring was a rusted out, moveable 18-wheeler rim, while other sites had nice fire pits with a BBQ grill on top. We would stay again but may be more apt to just get a non-premium site. - teamfour

This is our third stay here and a little bit pricier this time than the last time we stayed here 3 years ago. I called on our way home and was lucky enough to get a spot for us to stay overnight. We were on an end site and it did have a bit of traffic noise. The bathrooms were in the process of being redone and they were very nice. At one time there had been a cost for using showers but that was done away with. I think this was nice for a one night stop to relax after a day of traveling but not sure if I would stay here longer. The higher price might deter me from staying longer even though this is a great location for so many areas of Pennsylvania. - alnal90

We've stayed at Harrisburg East many times, and it was never a great campground (due to traffic noise, close spots, pay showers, little or no grass, etc.), but the new owners are increasing prices (now $45 a night - ridiculous for the area) and requiring a copy of my driver's license, something I've never heard of at a campground. They also now want two night's deposit. The wifi, while free, is flakey - it just randomly dies, only to return a few minutes later. - skater

We have used this campground many tomes for a overnight. It has always been great for that reason. It is under new ownership now who have made a lot of improvements, including the better wifi and cable. It's easy to find and lots of great places to eat within a few miles. We will continue to use this as a stopover! - Doug156

Great park. The staff is very friendly. The only negative is the space between sites in Carousel Circle. Sites are close, but most campers spend the day away so it is peaceful. Most sites have 4 trees (1 one each corner) so most of the pull thru sites are shaded. Roads are narrow, but easy to navigate for even big rigs. Some folks spread out more than they should, which makes it feel (for those next door) even tighter. Overall, the service we received was top notch: from the shuttle drivers, to the camp store staff and folks that collect your garbage and recycling from the end of your camp site. The shuttle pick-up/drop-off is right next to Carousel Circle making it user friendly for most campers. It would be better if there was a path that cut through the middle, so folks didn't walk through the edge of another person's site.
Hershey Park itself was very nice with more affordable food & drink options than other amusement parks we have visited. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. - IBpraisingGod

The other reviews are right. The biggest thing this campground has going for it is the free shuttle bus to Hershey Park. This allows you to avoid the parking fees. If you are going to a concert at Hershey Park I would highly recommend using the shuttle because traffic was terrible & parking was way off in overflow the night we drove by the park. Other then that the park is very plain. It does have a nice pool. It has a large gift shop & a game room. The employees are very friendly & helpful. The park is convenient to local attractions & Harrisburg. There are no restaurants on the grounds but they are close by. There is a laundry but I didn't use it so I can't report on its condition. The campsites are close together. There is room for your tow. We did get satellite reception. Wi Fi was good. There is cable. We have a 41 ft motorhome & it was a little tight getting out of our space. Some parts of the park are close to the railroad tracks. Trains went thru frequently. Some of the tents were up against the water on the property which according to the park info we got at check in is subject to flash flood in heavy rain. All in all we would stay here again. - Connie's Co-Owner

Had a site in Carousel Circle, very small. So narrow that the next site's water/electric hookup was under our canopy! And the side of their camper was about 6 feet from the canopy. So if you don't want any more space than under your canopy, great - but way too cramped for our liking, especially for the price. Barely had enough room to park the truck once we unhooked. Other parts of the campground seemed to have more spacious sites. - bgg

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

Codorus State Park has a nice campground. However, there are not many sites that allow pets, and even fewer pet-friendly sites with shade. I wish I had known that most PA state campgrounds don't have water hookups before we got there, even "modern electric" sites. If I stayed there again I would get site 44 due to its proximity to the water spigot in case we needed to refill the tank. If you don't have a pet, site 57 is also close to a water spigot. - Lori and Larry

Our first site was not acceptable. They redid our location. Has easy access to the pool and bathhouses. Perfect! Great pool and new bathrooms. Has a kitty pool as well. Good signage to the park. - Chicabunny

Friendly staff. Park is clean, well maintained. Has multiple bathhouses and laundry rooms. We saw 2 playgrounds, a game room, and a pool. Also had a kiddie pool area. Our site was gravel and it was level. Good spacing between campsites. Little shade, but our site did face away from the afternoon sun. Check height of RV to make sure you go in from the direction away from the 13'3" bridge. - WandaJim

Very nice campground, however, the staff is not helpful whatsoever. Despite making reservations two months ahead of stay with a group, including cabins and RV sites, our party was placed as far apart as possible and no attempt was made to fix it although there were empty sites and cabins available. One bathhouse closed so that the person with younger kid in the farthest cabin away from restroom had quite a walk (past empty cabins) to use restroom and staff would not even try to remedy this. Response was that other groups might be coming in, as if our group request was not important, but the others were. Very disappointed when staff is this unaccomodating and most likely would not stay here again with a group due to poor service. - P. Franklin

A difficult campsite to rate as parts are really good and others lacking. There is a really large and lovely pool and crazy golf. Check in girl was really helpful and friendly. It's a large campsite with gravel and grass sites that need some maintenance and would be cozy if the campsite was full but during our stay it is quiet and we have plenty of space. Picnic tables at each site but most are warped but they do seem to be in the process of refurbishing them. The main downside is, if needed there is a lack of showers and restrooms for such a large site. There are a few "porta-potties"scattered around and a couple of shower/restrooms "blocks" Wifi was good considering distance from office although it kept "dropping out" and having to re-enter password which was annoying. Our main reason for staying here was to visit Gettysburg which is just a 20 minutes drive. We would recommend. - Harris England

We stayed just over a week and got a great weekly rate. I asked about wifi when booking and was told they had wifi at the campsites, they don't. They only have wifi at the clubhouse on the outside deck and they didn't leave the lights on at night so I never felt comfortable sitting up there to use it. The sites were pretty clean but the dumpster was constantly overflowing. The camp grounds were pretty and you couldn't beat the mountain views. The ground is gated which was nice. The roads to get there are a bit narrow. They have lots to do during the weekends but it was very quiet and pretty dead during the week. The 'stocked' fishing stream was not stocked. When I would call the front desk seemed every time I would get the same teenager who would giggle and answer 'I don't know' to all my questions. Very unprofessional. The campground is a bit in the middle of nowhere and decent drive to Gettysburg, Harrisburg, Hershey and more. - FrugalNavyWife

Loved it. We stayed in the overflow area, so when the other campers left we had a huge area to ourselves. I could see how maybe it could be noisy down in the cg, but it was quite where we were. Lots of activities & amenities were available for any family members. - rascalydog
