First thing... this is a GREAT family experience. Highly recommend coming here to camp and do the amusement park. Campground isn't perfect but the overall experience outshines the issues. The people were very nice (The lady who checked us in and has been there for over forty years), The bathrooms are clean and have single person stalls for privacy. It is a very easy walk from any campsite to the amusement park. There's even a shuttle bus constantly circulating to take you from place to place. Lots of trees, reasonably level sites with gravel, and the daily trash pick up from your campsite. Issues include very narrow roads, no water or sewer at the campsites, and if you need 50 amp electricity it's unlikely you'll get one of the few there. That said there are a number of places to fill up your water tank (fill up your water at the recycling center on the way in) and there is a double dump station on the way out. Plus with all the trees 30 amp is not that big a deal. Again a few things that keep this from being perfect, but with the expense of amusement park the great people and then I cite this is still one of the best camping experiences I've had with the kids. Highly recommend it. - Eliszt

We again enjoyed ourselves on our visit to Knoebels. Staff always does a good job keeping the bathrooms/showers clean given the large volume of campers. Our location at the campground was on the far side away from the amusement park but with the park bus service making rounds every 15 minutes meant no walking to the park, which made everything very convenient. Always a huge assortment of different Rv types from all age groups and always find everyone very friendly. Geography at the campground was moderately to heavily wooded and mostly hilly. Roads are paved. Our site was above average in size and had crushed stone put down though I had to use several boards to level the trailer. Noticed many other sites in our area were not level either. Good signal on our Verizon cell. Staff was professional, friendly and experienced on how a campground should be run. Looking forward to going again next year! - mdcamping

The check-in staff was friendly and knowledgeable, which enabled a speedy check in process despite the line. The lot we stayed at was Saskatchewan 53 and was clean and orderly. The lot had sufficient tree shade, making for a cooler stay. The lot was unlevel and the camper required 4-1/2" of blocking. One thing to note is the location of the restrooms you had to walk to, they are a good walk from the site. Positively looking at it, because of this the site is certainly quieter than those closer to the restrooms. We did try the spring fed small campground pool. It was extremely small, very cold but refreshing on hot days. The pool life guard was great to talk to and was highly knowledgeable of the local water ways. I would recommend this camp ground and would stay again. - Coleman Pop Up Family

Depending on your preference this place is either OK or a nightmare. Take a narrow road to the campground which has a somewhat steep dirt road to a treed area to your spot. The actual spot was roomy and although tight I made it through with a 36' trailer. It is only an extra mile or two from Knoebels campground and way more private and secluded for sure. This is a no frills kinda place. Porta potties and something similar looking that was a shower. That wasn't a problem since we use our own facilities. There was no campground host which only mattered when I tried to find the dump station. 10 minutes and a phone call later I found it. I probably would not camp here again opting for a nearby place with full hookups. If nothing like that was available I might stay here again picking it over the much more crowded and packed looking Knoebels. If you do go make sure you get there from south using All Saints Road. If you come from the north the entrance is a Y and is tight to make without a trailer! - Colorado Kamper

This is a beautiful campground with lots of trees and large, long, wide sites. We stayed in the E section, had plenty of room for our large motorhome and everything else on our site. Restroom was far from our site but very clean. Store is small and not much in the way of scheduled activities, but it has two ponds, one for fishing, one has a beautiful fountain. We planned to go to Knoebels, (didnt make it) this is right down the road. Would definitely stay here again if coming to the area. - letsgorving

Previous posts are accurate. It is a beautiful park with a lot of mature trees, but roads and sites are clear of branches, beautiful grass. Vast majority seem to be well kept seasonal. - mroswell

Wonderful park friendly staff, great grounds and level sites. They take pride in the grass here so refrain from putting anything on the grass, they will ask you to remove it if you do. All hook ups work well, wifi ok for surfing and checking emails but wouldn't try videos. Staff came by on our first night and warned us of a possible bad storm on the way to prepare for it, never really had a campground do that so nice to know they care. - DBLR

We reserved a site several months in advance. The site we were directed to was a nice site, but only 30 amp, no sewer. Turned out that the power pedestal was bad so we had to move. OK, not the end of the world. Getting into the CG is tight. There is one road that is so narrow that had another RV been on it, we or they would have had to disconnect and back out. The grounds were nice. They offer a large bucket of Firewood for $8, load it with all you can, take it to your site, they'll get the bucket. Garbage is picked up apparently daily. Nice touches. We likely will not return here as we found a nicer place in the area during a drive around. That aside, this is a nice place to stay. Do look carefully at maps to plan your arrival! Our GPS brought us in on some incredibly steep narrow roads allegedly a 'Truck Route'. Leaving we eliminated several of those hills. Knoebels itself is definitely worth the trip. - blues traveler

My wife and I took her girl scout troop to Knoebels and we stayed at Lake Glory on a Saturday night. Note - if you have scouts let them know as there are some different rules that make the trip less expensive for scouts. Note that in general they charge extra for each tent/structure on a site - but they give a break to scouts on this.
Since we only stayed one night we did not explore the full campground or the main lake. We were down by the pond. The grounds were nice - we were backed up to some woods and there was a lot of wooded area nearby. Our site was plenty big - particularly in depth. The site was levelish. Power was solid. We were also able to leave our RV there late on Sunday - which was nice as we were at the park and left our dog in there. The park allows dogs, but ours does not like noise/crowds.
Roads are crushed stone, bathrooms/showers were basic - but clean. Separate stalls (each with own door to outside) which is nice. Look - nothing is fancy here. Most people are staying due to the park. Everyone pulled out on Sunday. Having said that our spot was very nice and the woods made it really 'camping' in nature. We had no issues, the help was very nice, and it was easy to get in/out of. We would definitely stay there again if wanting to camp near the park During the week might be nice if you like privacy. We enjoyed our campsite - 82. Note that it had no sewer (which we knew going in). - T.Butter

This park has no pool, cable or WiFi. Obviously it is a park meant to provide accommodations for people going to the amusement park. - mrrlap

This is a smaller, family campground, so if you are looking for a huge resort type campground, this isn't your place. Grounds were very well kept. Pool was spotless. Our site had a nice cement pad. Store had just the basics. Large game room. Decent amount of activities. Small playground. If you want a place close to Knoebels and don't want a resort to stay at, this is only 15 minutes away. Electric dropped to 108 volts twice in the 4 days we were there, but the temp was in the high 90's so I can hardly blame the campground. It lasted less than an hour each time, so it wasn't a big deal anyway. Water pressure was great and the hookups were placed perfectly. No cable, and TV antenna reception was nonexistent. WiFi worked great 1 minute, and wouldn't connect the next minute. We would stay here again. - Mike Jh

We found this campground by searching within distance to Knoebels Park. I was happy to find out they had a site with 50amp service. We arrived 2 hours before check in, and they accommodated with us with no additional fee. The store and campground is small and minimalist. We were directed to our site (# 7) which had a nice double cement pad. Although the electric was labeled as 50amp, it only registered as 30amp in our coach. Water pressure was very varied. Sometimes just dripping from the faucet. Sites were close. The overall feel was very friendly (a lot of seasonals). Our site was in a line closest to the road, which was very loud. There is a drag strip not far away which you can also hear. I would highly recommend choosing another site further into the grounds. The pool is older, but was clean and warm (only 5 ft deep at the max). The playground was weathered.
Overall, it was a nice Mom-n-Pop type of campground. We did not use the restrooms/showers/facilities. Based on the rates and amenities, we will most likely opt for another campground next time we visit. - Crestie Lover

Facilities were very clean, all the people in the campground were very friendly and polite. The camp store was small but had all the essentials and was very reasonable on prices. The sites were level, easy access, and a little crowded. The picnic table we had was brand news, fire ring was in great shape and in a great location. Our children had many many other kids to play with which made the trip that much more enjoyable for mom and dad. The playground had a couple swingsets and a rock wall that the kids enjoyed. There was a horseshoe pit right in front of the swingset which was clearly marked but it was still kind of a bad place for it. Overall I would highly recommend this campground, its also in perfect driving distance to Knoebels. - Jlrineer

We stayed during Bloomsburg Fair. Plenty of room,facilities were clean. Not a fancy place but a good campground for a few days. Don't let the entrance or office appearance dissuade you. We will be back next year. - hiker1

An older park, but everything worked. Good water pressure and good power. We used it as an overnight and it was easy to find and easy to get back on the freeway. No shade for the pull thru sites, but got great satellite signal. We would stay again if traveling through this area. - retiremsgarmy

First impressions were not great, office was sketchy. Sites were level and easy to get in and out. Wi-Fi okay at our site. Didn't use facilities as they looked dumpy. - chillyvt

Been camping 22 years from starting off tent camping when kids were young to RV's, been all up and down the East Coast so we aren't new to camping or campgrounds. Looked this campground up on their website and it looked pretty nice actually the pictures on their website is what sold us on going. When we got there, it wasn't exactly like the pictures. The slides looked huge on the website and in fact were small but good for little kids. Bathrooms were adequate, few times they weren't clean and my husband wouldn't use them. Heard a few campers complaining about stuff on the floor. My neighbor was smoking weed just out at his site, I complained didn't do any good. They have a cop come through the campground every night to give out speeding tickets. It's 5mph and if you go go 1 mile over you get a 70$ ticket, I kid you not. It's catered to mostly seasonal. They fly through the campground on their golf carts going way over 5 but nothing happens. The biggest thing that threw me off is that you are allowed to smoke in the pools, when I say in the pools I'm talking literally in the water! The adult pool is a huge drunk fest, not a single person wasn't drinking in the water and smoking. Staff is not friendly and it was a run down place. - campers4

I will start with the positives and say that the campsite provides a variety of activities for children. My son loved the bike rentals. They also have paddle boats, bumper boats and mini golf all for a extra fee. The playground is really nice as well. On the negative side the power is awful and so is the water pressure. We paid for a full hookup campground and that's what we expected to get. We had problems with the power dropping the whole time, even after the electrician supposedly fixed it, which he was rude about. Some of the food in the fridge went bad because of the power kept cutting off. The staff seemed annoyed with their "guests" the whole times that we were there. You would think that they would want the customers coming back. I will never stay here again. Oh and don't expect a great pool area, even though it's called Splash Magic. The 2 slides are awful and the pool was cloudy. Also most people are smoking and drinking not only at the adult pool but also at the other pool. I don't care if people smoke or drink but come on. This was excessive. - Fox Family

Campground is old and run down. Sites are long and narrow and very close together. After a rain lots of puddles mud and dirt. Pool area is OK serves it's purpose. - emily0707

we stayed at Fantasy Island Campground for one night on our last night on the way home from Yellowstone Park. very nice campground right on the river (seasonal sites had the river sites) - travelers had the sites in the middle of the CG. owner was very nice, restrooms were clean, was a little tricky getting into the CG but a road right beside the CG heading south, there was another entrance which was a much easier access - a little rough getting around inside but we took it slow and easy and it wasn't a problem owner has only had business for a few years but has made many improvements including new 30 and 50 amp electrical outlets. cable had about 15 stations. would recommend this CG for anybody passing through the area via rt 80 and would definitely stay here again when passing through. we paid $20 on a Thursday night with Passport America - we camped in a MH. - Banditoman60

This campground is HORRIBLE ! The sites are small and hard to back in a with longer camper. The wifi only worked if you were at the office. The owner was rude and disrespectful to the families with us, as well as my family. They did not have many activities for kids. The kids park is a JOKE ! They had a toy bingo where you had to be 12 or under to play and we were questioned numerous times on the age of our kids. We camp almost every weekend in the summer and this is the first we have had any issues at a campground. - Teresa PSU

We stayed at this campground for a long weekend. It is right before/after the bridge and the turn in can be tricky depending on the direction of your approach. There is a restaurant that may or may not be affiliated with the campground, but it appeared to only be open for ice cream at the window. The site we had was very tight, but fortunately we had nice neighbors since we really butted up to the site behind us and barely had room to extend our awning and not hit our neighbors on the side. And fortunately again, my son, who was going to have a tent on our site, had to cancel and didn't come. There would have been nowhere to put the tent. Our fire ring was in a spot where we would have had to essentially set up our chairs in our neighbor's site to use it. Mostly seasonal sites in our area. There is a pool, but it seldom had anyone in it. We were right next to the public access boat launch. This was not a problem. The boaters/visitors just parked across the campground road from us on the grass. All the people visiting and living there were friendly. The staff is amazing. Very accommodating and helpful. We did not have kids with us, so cannot comment on family activities. - WMRamblers

We stopped twice once on our way northbound on our second day of traveling and southbound on our way home. Owners were very friendly. We found it the perfect place to stop due to it's proximity to I-81 though as others have mentioned it is a bit steep coming down hill to the entrance but my older Tundra was able to make the descent and climb with ease on both visits. Next time we plan to stay for at least a day to relax and enjoy the pool. - Tom Killackey

We stayed here for just one night as it is close to I-81. We were very pleased with the look of the place, felt like we were in a state park! Very heavily treed so our site was kept cool in the hot weather. Only 30 amps so you have to be aware of that, but it was a pleasant place to be. We were in a pull-thru that was long enough to leave our toad attached behind our 36' motor home. They have a nice big pool on premise, too. We would come back. - dbcordello

Heavily wooded in deep valley, hence the extremely steep grade from the Interstate. Staff friendly but no TV or WIFI due to tree coverage. Sites are close. Larger unit may have issues. Good overnight stay going North/South. Just remember grade - steep. - KilaH

Campground was clean and very friendly staff. Kid orientated but it was very quiet. The pool looked very clean but it was too cold to actually get in it while we were there. - Amanda_Glad

I agree with a previous reviewed that the access road into the campground is very narrow and full of potholes. It is definitely a one lane road. We had site #205, which was a back in site that was dirt and gravel, but level. We had adequate space between our site and the next one. It was quiet during the week, but the weekend is for children. We did some touring around the local area, so did not just sit at the camp. We had some problems with our TV reception and the staff went above and beyond to help us figure out the problem - which was with us, not the campground. - Sojourner1986

We renewed our Passport America just to stay here and we were totally satisfied. This is the place for kids!
Usually an RV park will have one nice playground. This place had a nice wooden playground, and a swingset, and a wooden climb-on train, AND a giant wooden ship with slides, AND a gaga ball pit, AND a giant Mc-Donald's style tunnel playground.
They also had a working gameroom.
Each morning they had a hey-hey ride with Yogi Bear, followed by coloring and cartoons. In the afternoon, the staff came the the playground and organized games with the kids. At dark, they played a movie on the big screen. Did I mention that this was on a TUESDAY?!
The pool was nice and had a separate baby pool with a cool contraption for filling buckets with water.
Laundry was decent.
The bathrooms were the cleanest I have ever seen!
The staff tried to give me a site that was close and easy with my 40 bus, but it was hard to find from the map, so I ended up making some awkward turns. When it was time to leave, the staff member gave me a golf-cart escort just to make sure I tooth easy way out. - mmette00
