Excellent campground. Staff was very friendly. We only stayed one night so we didn't use any of the facilities, but the campground has a lot including mini golf, dog parks, and a fishing pond. We had no trees so Satellite was no problem and we had good TMobile service. We camped at Elizabethtown / Hershey KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Typical high-priced KOA. This was the first KOA I've been to that did not offer a military discount. What irked me the most was charging $6 per person for guests who were joining us for a cookout. I could understand the fee if they were staying for the day and using the pool and other facilities, but my guests stayed for maybe 1.5 hours max and did not leave our site. Grounds were well-maintained with grass well-trimmed and watered. Very little dust from the gravel roads. Even though the area had experienced heavy rain and flooding just the week before, there was no standing water anywhere in the campground. Garbage was picked up daily on-site. We camped at Elizabethtown / Hershey KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Elizabethtown / Hershey KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Elizabethtown / Hershey KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Elizabethtown / Hershey KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If approaching from Elizabethtown (east of the campground) be aware that there are two bridges to choose from to get to the campground. One was 13' 3" and the other 13'6'. Their website discusses this under directions to their campground. Approaching from the west off of 441 was not an issue. It is recommended that if choosing the 13'6" bridge to travel through the middle - it is an arch and is only 36 feet long. The lower bridge is flat.

A clean, well-run RV park with many spacious sites. Events for families scheduled throughout the weekend; and daily shuttle service to Hersheypark is available. The nightly rate is rather expensive and the 11:30 a.m. checkout time is earlier than most parks in the area. We called before making our reservation and were able to snag a site on the end of a row - you're unable to specify that on the KOA website. Utilities were solid and the staff was very friendly. We camped at Elizabethtown / Hershey KOA in a Motorhome.

This park is a bit of a drive off the interstate, but worth it. Two laned paved road to park is a little hilly, but go slow and it is fine. Very pretty park with excellent maintenance. Some really nice patio sites and roomy sites with light shade. Good cable, but satellite is accessible on a number of the sites. We had a super nice long pull thru site. One of the best dog parks I have seen which is important to us on longer trips with our puppy. We camped at Elizabethtown / Hershey KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We found this to be a good base camp for sightseeing Hershey and Amish countryside. For a good meal, try TJ Rockwells which has a diverse menu. Just a warning, it is crazy busy on the weekends.

Campground is over priced for the service as staff and workers were rude. Site was gravel and not level. Excellent bathrooms and showers. Excellent Wi-Fi and cable. Hershey park was about 20 miles away but they run shuttle 2 times a day providing you sign up and pay the night before. Pool was crowded for the amount of sites and people . We camped at Elizabethtown / Hershey KOA in a Motorhome.

Worst KOA in America! Overpriced, rude staff, dusty, and more rules than a prisoner camp. Heard lots of complaints from other campers when we checked in. Stay somewhere else when visiting Hershey. We camped at Elizabethtown / Hershey KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in the deluxe cabin which was very clean and well maintained was nice to have everything included all we had to bring was food and towels. The outdoor eating and fireplace were good. Staff was very nice. Would stay here again would of given a higher rating if pool was open till at least 10.30 pm after a long day at the Hershey amusement park a nice swim would of been nice there is no lifeguard on duty so no extra cost to keep it open. Also office does not open till 8.30 am for check out would of like to have been on the road at 7- 7.30 am for the 9 hr ride home. We camped at Elizabethtown / Hershey KOA in a Cabin.

We have stayed several times in this park. We had a long level pull thru site by the dog park. Power , water , cable and wifi were all pretty good. Seemed like plenty of activities this time around for the kids. The new patio /gazebo site is nice, but expensive, I will stay again. We camped at Elizabethtown / Hershey KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We had a beautifully located large pull through space with great views and lush grass. Our 2 miniature schnauzers loved the grass for lounging in the sun. We did not use the bathhouse or laundry but they looked very nice from the outside. The campground is conveniently located to many fun things to do.
