OMG. Talk about false advertising! A pool--yes but has been in disrepair and unusable for years. Miniature Golf- yes but the putting greens have more moss than carpet and weeds adorn the course. Clean restrooms-- ha ha ha ha. Talk about gross, smelly and out of date. Even the washing machines are dirty The sites are grass covered and with the recent rains the big rigs are leaving huge ruts in the ground. No wifi or cable. There is a huge area with dumped nonworking machines, yard waste and even a 911 Porsche ( please someone rescue and restore that car). On a positive note, the owner is nice and tried to be accommodating for us. There is also a new dog park. Other than that, nature is reclaiming this park. Such a shame. We camped at Hershey Conewago Campground in a Motorhome.

This is an older park. The spaces were large with grass all around. Grass was well mowed. The park needs updating. The showers were clean but need improvements.Electricity was stronger than at a lot of parks. Quite a lot of seasonal campers. We camped at Hershey Conewago Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Run down park capitalizing on it's excellent location. Almost impossible to level in a park like this. Had to disconnect water because there was so much air in their pipes. Everything is in a state of disrepair. The electricity worked! We camped at Hershey Conewago Campground in a Motorhome.

We needed FHU during the Hershey RV show. Country roads (exit to left) were good for biking (turn off busy main road). Martin's 1.5 m toward Hershey has great food.

Can't believe this is a Good Sam park! The showers were disgusting and had squirrels living in the walls, of course I didn't realize that until I was in the shower and one looked out one of the many holes in the walls at me! I've been in some bad camp grounds, but never showered with a squirrel before. Good Sam better look at what they are putting their name on or I won't be trusting them anymore!!!:( We camped at Hershey Conewago Campground in a Motorhome.

Location is the best part of this campground. Although the price is comparable to others in the area, it is not comparable when compared to what is provided. The campground is in much need of upgrade. Stuff is falling apart everywhere. The office/store looks terrible...lots of junk lying around office. I have to agree with another review of this campground - the best way to describe the restrooms/showers is "gross"! They are filthy, full of bugs, broken down, in need of paint and in downright sorry condition. Lots were uneven and were a combination of grass and spotty patches gravel. Manager appeared to be the office clerk and maintenance guy at the same time since things are so rundown and we never saw any employees. We camped at Hershey Conewago Campground in a Motorhome.

Very close to Hershey PA. This is in a great location for going to the Hershey Chocolate Factory. If you're going to Lancaster, it's an hour or away.

We stayed her last Labor Day and end of May 2015, so we knew what to expect for the most part. Both times were to attend an event at Hershey. The people that work there are very nice.

The location is good for Hershey as its only 20 minutes away. The location to Lancaster and Harrisburg, both about 45 minutes is decent. On our most recent visit the park was almost empty when we arrived, so it was quiet. The site we were in was the same as last year, and is large enough to fit our 38' and toad. The hook ups are in the middle rear and split to 4 sites so be prepared with extra hose, or power cord. This visit, the pool was closed, even though it was after Memorial Day, the tennis / basket ball courts were filled with picnic tables. This is a home base for Hershey if you have low expectations. It is a short drive from Rt 283 so if traveling the Harrisburg / Lancaster area, it's easy on and off. At $55 a night, it's an expensive stop.

This is a nice quiet campground. While the one set of showers were unusable the one in the back was dated but fine. They could use some work to the campground to update it and make it a great campground not just OK. The owner and staff were very friendly and knew you by name when you went in and made us feel at home here. We went with a friend and we both have huge 5th wheels with many slide outs we still had plenty of room around the campers and plenty of room to socialize with one another. It would be nice to see them upgrade to 50 amp service for some of their sites as many of the newer campers require it. They have no cable hook up but my dish picked up easily. We will definitely be back. We camped at Hershey Conewago Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Were it not the only campground close to the Hershey RV show, we'd not EVER go there again. Sites in the row with 102 had sewer connections that ran UPHILL. And full of water from recent rain. We had to wade thru 2+" of water upon arrival. We were charged for a full hookup site that we didn't dare even use. Sites are small, our slide was within 10' of the next one over. Bathroom is old and run down. No Wi-Fi. Sites that are farther back seem to be better and not on a downhill slope. Be prepared to use a sewer extension and run your hookup UNDER your RV. We didn't hook up the sewer. There are dump stations available, but you'll be in the street blocking every one else while you discharge. The one we used had nasty dirty water pooled around it. Better yet, do yourself a favor and go somewhere else. Not worth the price charged. Worst campground we've ever been to. We camped at Hershey Conewago Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The condition of the campground was awful. The restrooms smelled and were disgusting. My wife refused to use them. The campground is in an utter state of disrepair. Of all the camp sites I've stayed at over the past decade, this one was by far the worst. I'd never camp there again. We camped at Hershey Conewago Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is a former KOA facility that is still a nice place to camp near Hershey, Pa. While it is not a fancy resort, it is in a nice setting outside of the city. We have stayed here for many years when we got to the Antique Automobile Club of America Fall Meet and Auto Parts Flea Market in early October. We camped at Hershey Conewago Campground in a Motorhome.

I think many rv-ers are upset at the size of the sites and the fact that large rv's are placed on what are meant to be tent sites. As an rver and a tenter I must say I understand, but staying here as a tent guest, I have to say the facilities were pretty good. The rates seemed priced right for the proximity to Hershey. We were treated very well by staff and even got a most of the deposit for leaving because of rain. Bathrooms were clean when I was camping there. We camped at Hershey Conewago Campground in a Tent.

We used this campground as 'base camp' for our holiday weekend trip to Hershey, PA. We had low expectations going in given the previous reviews... the park met our expectations. Our site was difficult to back in to given the steep slope I had to overcome while backing up. The location of the dumpsters on the opposite side of the narrow road compounded the issue. Luckily for me our neighbor offered to move his truck which allowed me to take a sharp angle. He was nice enough to guide me in. Our site was fairly large. The location of the utilities was a bit odd. They were directly behind us and were shared with 3 other sites. I noticed that one camper had to use a long extension cord to get power to his rig (not to mention very long sewer and water hoses). The restrooms were beyond filthy. The pool looked decrepit and in disrepair. The staff was friendly. We camped at Hershey Conewago Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Reservations made 2 months ahead for a travel trailer size site meant nothing. We were located on a tent site and after considerable discussion with an unfriendly employee we ended up with a very narrow, sloping site on the busy corner of a main camp road. Most sites are narrow, with very few trees for shade except around the perimeter of the fence. Washrooms were not cleaned frequently enough considering the place was packed. We camped at Hershey Conewago Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here for a week, felt like a month, campsites are too close together for me, people on top of people. Sites were sloped way too much, had to use a lot of leveling boards. Bathrooms were messy, looked like they were rarely cleaned, mini golf was a dump, play areas were not bad but had a real fine sand on the ground that got into everything. Campfire pits were junk and way too small, also really close to your neighbor. Owners were nice but since the overall campground was a dump, I wouldn't stay there again.

This is a former KOA and it is obvious why the KOA discontinued the relationship. Good sized level sites with good shade are available. All sites are back-in, so be prepared to put the big rigs in reverse. The pool is very small; standing room only even when the campground is not to capacity. The mini-golf area needs new carpeting (some holes were concrete with the carpet glue still on). Bathrooms need remodeling bad. I am 6' tall and my knees kept the stall door from closing while doing "business". The rooms were dirty even after the cleaning person cleaned them. The staff was very helpful and welcoming. Good place to sleep while going to Hershey Park (10 miles away). I would not go there to simply camp, the amenities (pool, bathrooms, game areas) are too nasty. We camped at Hershey Conewago Campground in a Tent Trailer.
