Great campground for visiting the amusement park, electric only with a water fill station and dump when you leave. Very helpful and friendly people here. The only down side is they like to clean the bath houses during the busy use time in the morning, feel they should wait maybe another hour or so. It's nice to be so close to the park to either walk or take the shuttle there. Will return. We camped at Knoebels Amusement Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Let me start by saying we really enjoyed our stay here. Geography at the campground was moderately to heavily wooded and slightly hilly. Roads that we noticed were 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 not level either. Our power box was in good working order but there is no water hookups at any of the campground sites though there is water filling stations when you enter the campground. In addition, no honey wagon service available so if you plan on doing a long stay you might need to bring a tote or use the campground facilities. No Wi-Fi but okay signal on our Verizon cell phone. Dog friendly campground. Staff was professional and friendly. Campground store was small but had all the essentials. 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 . Lots of younger camping families here but found everyone very respectful. Would certainly return again or recommend this place to anyone. We camped at Knoebels Amusement Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Knoebels is one of the best amusement parks anywhere. The rural location, nice and easy pace, pet friendliness and fun old fashioned rides will never go out of style. Even the concessions are reasonably priced. Lake Glory was an OK park. The staff was nice enough, the office and store was well stocked and the new game room was perfect for a family with tweens to teens. The sites where we were placed were not stellar. Back in was easy, hookups were good and only a little leveling was needed. There was no grass though. Our area was nearly all gravel and dirt. We have a rug so it was not too uncomfortable but for the price I desire better. They do offer a very useful shuttle service to the park and a local deer farmer visited with two awesome red bucks. We would have loved to have had the time to visit his farm. Next time we will try a different park closer to Knoebels. We camped at Knoebels Amusement Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Used this as a base camp to use the Amusement Park and other area attractions. The sites can range from good sized to small. I think we got the most unlevel site in the park, though (C-1). The sites in the older section of the park seemed to be bigger than in the newer section (Canadian Provinces). Restrooms and showers were clean, but dated, and no paper towels or hand dryers in the restrooms for whatever reason. It gets VERY busy on the weekends, but they patrol constantly and the noise levels are kept to a minimum. We would stay here again. We camped at Knoebels Amusement Resort in a Tent Trailer.

We have stayed at the campground several times over the past several years. Every time has been as pleasant as the last. Our kids love the amusement park and we can appreciate the free admission since we don't usually have the chance to get on the rides ourselves. We save a ton over visiting the other big amusement parks in the area. We camped at Knoebels Amusement Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This our 8th annual trip to Knobels Campground. This is the first time we stayed in the back of the park (Klondike section). Although we didn't want to be back that far, we loved it, despite the walk. This area is nice and quiet, shady and spacious and the rollercoaster isn't heard the entire time. We had 6 teenagers with us and even had room for one small 3-man tent. They have a "fun" bus that does travel through the campground to shuttle you to the front of the campground near the park entrance and it comes by fairly often. We camped at Knoebels Amusement Resort in a Motorhome.

This large campground is adjacent to Knoebels Amusement Park, which is a family-friendly old style amusement park, with no admission charge, and reasonable prices for rides and food. The campground has electric hookups only, but there are several water fill spots at the entrance, and a few dump stations on the property. The campground is wooded, some sites may present leveling issues, and the trees may present issues for larger rigs. There is frequent shuttle service to the amusement park, although it isn't too far to walk. Restrooms are rustic, but adequate. Reservations are a must, especially on weekends. The fee is high, considering minimum hookups, no cable and no antenna access, but how many campgrounds provide a really cool amusement park on the premises?

I gave this a high rating, not because the campsites are great, but for other reasons. 1) Campsites are nice but there is no water or sewer. 2) 50 amp, no power issues ever (14 years here). 3) Flat rate for campsite, with NO (!) guest charges. They don't nickel and dime you (with friends and family, 14 people at 2 sites). 4) Camp workers are nice and helpful with no hassles. 5) Constant shuttle running to park. 6) The amusement park is very cheap. Food is very good and reasonable. Park is dog friendly. (Took ours on some rides.) 7) No admission to park. All these things add to a great time at Knoebel's. We camped at Knoebels Amusement Resort in a Motorhome.

Second year in a row camping here and this was better than last. We decided to come during the week and it worked out for us. Not as crowded as the weekends and a lot quieter. Had a great site with plenty of shade and a short walk to the bathrooms. Grounds were clean as well as the bathrooms and showers. Great place to stay when coming to the amusement park. As I stated in my review last year, there are wash sinks for dishes which was nice. The security is good, they were walking around or driving by most of the night to get the noise quieted down. Convenience to the park is great, camp store is well stocked and the people working here are very friendly. There are water hoses when you enter the park to fill up if need be, but the line gets long at check in. The American Section is good for tents, pop ups and smaller trailers and the Canadian Provinces sites seem easier for the bigger rigs to get into, but less shade. They also have cabins on site. Overall a decent place to stay to go to the amusement park and we will stay here again next year. We camped at Knoebels Amusement Resort in a Tent Trailer.

We always enjoy staying at this park campground, it is always clean and well policed by security. Only thing keeping it from a 10 is the lack of sewer and water hook ups. We did not use bathroom showers, but it is my understanding they are more like a PA State campground type bathroom. Which would be a basic shower/bathroom.

First time for us at this park and we loved it. Staff was super friendly both in the campground and in the park. Clean showers and very large. Sites were pretty level. We stayed on "Prince Edward Island" and we loved it. Nice that you can walk to the park and don't have to worry about driving or catching a shuttle. Dump station was nicely located and they had two in the same section so you did not feel rushed. Pool is huge and clean. Kids had a blast. We will be making this a yearly visit for sure.

Fourth year in a row of camping at Knoebels and we love it! It is a family friendly campground, amusement park and water park. When you don't feel like cooking, you buy great food at reasonable prices at the amusement park. Pet-friendly. The staff is always friendly and attentive. This year friends of ours even had a medical emergency. 911 was called and Knoebels was notified via the paramedics. Knoebels had an EMT on staff even though it was before park hours. She was there before the ambulance and was very capable. Later she even stopped by to check up on the status of the patient. Knoebels is the perfect place for families with young children through mid-teenage years. Very affordable with a warm staff. Large sinks for dish washing are available as well as laundry facilities. Just realize we call it 'city camping', definitely not private sites. We camped at Knoebels Amusement Resort in a Travel Trailer.

The Campground is very convenient to get to the park but other than that not very good. I have been camping there every year for over 20 years for reunions and I have not seen much of any upgrades in 20 years except the electric and upgrade to the bathrooms that are hard used and needed it bad. They did add upper sites and cabins years ago. The bathrooms and showers are clean if you get there before they get trashed and I have seen them really trashed. There are no water hookups so you have to fill before you park and they have a dump station when you leave to dump. The sites are pretty much dirt and large tree roots you have to watch when you walk. It is not the greatest in camping but the park is walking distance and is awesome. We camped at Knoebels Amusement Resort in a Motorhome.

This campground's location is great for accessing the amusement park! We walked there every day of our stay. The sites are electric only, so be prepared to consume water wisely. My biggest complaint about this park is that it was built many years ago and does not well-accommodate big rigs. The tree branches scrape the top and sides of the motorhome, and the roads are very narrow. Some of the sites have adequate width while some are narrower. We visit this park every year for a family reunion so I will definitely be returning. We camped at Knoebels Amusement Resort in a Motorhome.

First off, this perspective is coming from someone who stayed here in a tent and the price reflects a $4 discount scratch off card coupon. This campground is best classified as a campers campground, meaning the atmosphere of the campground is based on who is camping around you. I know this is basically everywhere, but it is more here because of the closeness of the sites and people come here for the amusement park a,nd the campground is a convenience. We had a platform site, which was really nice, but the platforms are very close to each other. We heard every little noise from the neighbors DVD movie to the guy across the road playing his PSP. Camping etiquette is at a minimum. Everyday camping noises aren't a problem, but outside noises like these get to be annoying at night. The restrooms and showers were pretty much clean, especially with the volumes of people using them. There were also wash sinks for dishes which was nice. The security is good, they were walking around or driving by most of the night to get the noise quieted down. As stated earlier, convenience to the park is great, camp store is well stocked and the people working here are very friendly. There are water spickets when you enter the park to fill up if need be, but the line gets long at check in. Looking around the other sites, they didn't seem too level and some were tight to get into for the bigger trailers. The Canadian Provinces sites seem easier for the bigger rigs to get into, but less shade. Overall a decent place to stay to go to the amusement park and we will stay here again next year. We camped at Knoebels Amusement Resort in a Tent.
