23 Parks near Gardners, Pennsylvania

This is one of the busiest parks we have ever stayed in. There are more children than we've ever seen in an RV park. That is probably due to the fact that they have children activities every weekend of the summer. We were given a slot for one night on a Friday even though they required three night minimum. And we had to except 30 amp since they were so full. The park was quiet even with all the campers. Easy access to the park and very handy to Gettysburg. Well-kept park with every amenity a child could want. And they really pack the campers in. - durham4926

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

Very clean. Great little museum for Appalachian Trail in the park. Pet area is somewhat restrictive. Lots of hiking trails, not so much for biking. - doghouse traveler

We really liked this campground for its remoteness. Trees all around the sites; hiking trails nearby; right next to the Appalachian Trail. Campsite hosts very friendly. General store 1/4 mile walk away. We would definitely stay here again. - Jolly Out There

This state park is close to Gettysburg, and we used it while touring the battlefields. The sites, while not as private as some places we have been, were adequately large, and the bathrooms were spotlessly clean. Showers are free. I have arthritis and have limited mobility, and the handicapped facilities here are some of the best I have seen. Camp hosts were nice and helpful. Store on premises had good burgers and fries. I would stay here again. - nativemainer

This is a great campground, but if you want "spit and polish" it won't be for you. The campground is very old (formerly Tagg Run, so it's at least 30+ years), but the new owners renamed it and have been putting what they can into it. They have made many upgrades to the park, but some of the amenities are still rather rough, like the bathhouse that we were near. However, a newer, more modern bathhouse is only a row or two away and it was fine. The sites are well shaded and there are many permanent sites, but not all the overnight sites have sewer, so be sure to check when you call so there's no surprises. The most compelling factor that keeps bringing us back to this campground is the people. You can't find a better group of owners. They will do whatever it takes to make your stay as enjoyable as it can be including a concierge service! If you need it, just ask 'Pap' as he makes his rounds and he'll bring it for you even if he's got to run into town to get it! These people are the salt of the earth. The campground community reminds you of small town America, everyone is friendly, outgoing, and polite. Perfect strangers treat you like they've known you all their lives and welcome you to the mix with open arms. This is a great campground even though it's a little rough around the edges. Our trailer has all the amenities we need, so ‘roughin’ it’ doesn’t bother us, but it’s the owners and the community that keeps us coming back. - Mike Opteris

Well, this is an older campground and seems to be mostly permanent sites. If you have a small unit, the sites are not an issue. Thank goodness we live close to this campground, so we did two dry runs before we actually took our unit. We have a 35' 5th wheel and both sites they tried to give us, on two different weekends, were entirely too small. Every time I called the campground I had to leave a message. NO problem, but usually did not receive a return call until hours or days later. They do have some sites that would accommodate larger units, but VERY few. If they would take out some trees and combine a some sites to make one site and also try to make the sites more level it would be a good campground. Grounds are kept nice and clean. Just sites are way to small for the units today. We will not be visiting this campground again. - lmoyer21

Big rig friendly. We had a level site but most sites were not level. The sites consisted of large rocks and no grass. There was no dog park but large field to walk dog. No activities and pool was closed due to the season. Showers and laundry was good. Wi-Fi and cable was good. - Fulltimersrv
Sep 2015 - $43.00
Impossible to level, only one staff person on duty and she had to do everything. Poor directions and no signage for the campground. Sites are all gravel and very tight turns into and out of the site and campground.
They advertise cable and Wifi but the cable was a joke and the Wifi was in and out. Won't stay here again. - Mr. Camper

nice little rv park, off the beaten path, but a good value, especially if a PassportAmerica member - easy backin sites, full hookups at most, with many 'campground' type sites also near the creek, in the woods.
good Wifi and laundry - the path through can be tight, with most vehicle parking along the path, and several partially into the path, but it's not a large park to navigate - also a nice setting for a stay in Southern Pennsylvania, near Gettysburg, Harrisburg, and Hershey. - hturnerfamily

33 sites, most for permanent campers. With a 32 feet 5th wheel we only had 2 available sites with full hookups (not big rig friendly).
Would not stay here again except if we had no other choice.
No access to washrooms or showers. They only take Credit Cards, no cash. Good for 1 night to go visit Hershey, PA - Liz & Bob

Stayed twice at this campground...once on the way down south and, two weeks later, on the way back north. Mix of seasonal and weekender campers. Full hookups at all sites, nice washrooms with showers, very clean and well setup laundry room and pleasant and professional staff. Came in after hours but the office had left very clear instructions as to what to do. Would definitely stay here again. - Ab and Cindy

I arrived after dark and there was not a single light available to find a spot. I drove around and around for at least a half hour before I was able to identify an empty spot and get into it. It was grass, and other campers were in gravel spots, but I couldn't find one of those. If you are going here, arrive before dark! I had called ahead and no mention was made of this. The park is Western themed and very kitschy, which some folks may like. Restrooms were so-so - not filthy but you would definitely want your flip-flops on. $39 seemed quite high for the condition. I actually camped here in a van. - pompomgirl

This RV park is very easy to get to from I-81. Our GPS took us right to it. If we didn't know it was here, we'd never have dreamed there was a large beautiful RV park, in back of residential houses. We spent one night here with a 25' travel trailer. They gave us one of their pull thru sites.
. The sites are gravel, as are the access roads. The roads are very smooth. Our site wasn't very level, side to side or front to back. We were kind of handicapped with the front to back, as we wanted to leave the truck hooked up. On a level surface, with the truck hooked up, our trailer is almost perfectly level.
The campground is clean, with lots of trees, but, the trees are far enough away from the roads, and not a problem. The wifi is strong, and free, but kind of slow when there are a lot of users. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is a nice pool, Putt Putt golf, a game room, several pavilions, one of which is big enough to handle just about anything, they have pedal cars for rent. There is a nice laundry room, and the restrooms and showers are very clean, and even smell nice. They have some large rocks formations and some of them have very interesting forms.
The night we spent there, they were getting ready for a Christmas in July celebration. Made us want to stay longer. The camp store has the most delicious ice cream cones.
This is a busy place, and if you want to get a place on the weekend, I suggest you get there early. Bottom line: A great place to stay for a day or longer. - Jimal

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

Stayed 3 nights here, beautiful park with great sites and lots to do. Pull through easy with lots of room for slides. Nice to not camp on top of other rigs. Love this site.
Lots of activities in the park for all. A little pastry, fresh vegetable cart came by with lots of fresh corn, onions, zucchini and homemade pies to buy, just wonderful. - D'art campizard

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

Great Park. Shaded sites, Very clean restrooms and grounds. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Easy commute to restaurants, grocery stores, and Gettysburg Battlefield National Park. Definitely would stay there again. - Bobster43

I love this park. Beautiful views and some of the nicest people I ever met. Everyone treats you like family, The owner goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome. We had spot 57 which Is by far the best site there, right by the falls. Great fishing, ducks, wild rabbits, deer, and we even saw a mink. New showers and bathrooms, plenty of hot water, green grass that's kept very nice. Really, I can't say enough good things about this park. I wish we could have stayed longer. I understand the bridge is new so if you had heard the bridge couldn't withstand certain weights, that's no longer true. I don't know why this park isn't packed every weekend; except maybe its Dover' s best kept secret. We looked at all campgrounds near here and this one is top notch. - gypsysoul

Beautiful scenery...the bathroom facilities were unacceptable. There were wild rabbits running all around this place...even through the big puddles that were created when it rained. The man staffing the office was really nice and helpful. There is also a newspaper article hanging in the office about how the campground needed to be evacuated a few years back due to both creeks cresting their banks...interesting story, but questionable marketing practice to have it hanging in the office. - Dan Holdt

We stayed here when we visited hershey Park. The sites are grassy and a little hilly. They are close together with no buffer. Some of the tent sites are very close to the highway so request one not near the mini golf. The kids loved the mini golf even though it was a little run down. They also loved walking to the camp store and buying .25 ice creams. The store is well stocked with anything you may have left at home. We did not use the showers but the bathrooms were okay. Nothing great. They are centrally located. There is no hot water in the bathrooms. Each site comes with a fire ring and a picnic table. - mastro

Large, grassy spaces with plenty of room for chaise and awnings. Spaces with no shade, partial shade, and full shade available. Wifi is Tengo and pretty much worthless. My AT&T hotspot worked fine, but had to go outside RV for phone calls. Plenty for kids, playground, large pool, farm animals and room to ride bikes and run around. Park is well maintained, roads are gravel with no ruts or potholes, spaces are paved with gravel and dirt. Maybe 40% of spaces are filled with permanent or seasonal campers, but still plenty of space available for shorter period campers. Very nice place, we'll come here again. - westwill3

The rate was actual $0 which reflects are TT elite membership.
The place has a farm-like feel, from all the animals to some of the vegetables they grow. The grounds are well maintained. The pool is in dire need of replacing. The water was clean, but there's missing tiles and cracks everywhere. The sites are easy to get into, with plenty of 50amp sites. The power goes out about everyday, but not for long. The people working here are friendly and helpful. I would definitely return if in the area. - Travelinlady

We are thrilled with this campground. Everything is so well maintained. Sites are sufficient. Easy to back in as they are on a slant. Can't find a thing to complain about. - phyllen

One of the most attractive campgrounds we have ever stayed at. Rolling hills and lots of grass...Many permanent sites, well maintained and manicured. Transient sites clean and level mixed in make it very attractive. We stayed here in a motorhome. A car is necessary as you are several miles from attractions. - deacon_1

Stayed here one night. New management from what I gather and they're not friendly. Wish we wouldn't have stayed. Lots of seasonal sites, some good some bad. Packed beside a trailer and their beagle barked and barked. Asked the owners if they could put it inside and they told us no, the dog likes it outside. People working there didn't seem to know the area when we were asking questions about how to get here and there. Only good thing was we were able to flush our tanks out really well and do our laundry. - Leon Condor

All opinions are based on perspective. My perspective was from that of a tent camper. Bath house was a long walk from tent sites, dimly lit and very rustic. Pool bathrooms were disgusting. Friday/Saturday night activities were loud and ran late so don't expect quiet camping. Don't plan on eating meals at the snack shop. The little bit that we did order was not high quality. Tent sites very large and spaced out nicely. Camp grounds (not the bathrooms) are kept very orderly and clean. Fishing lake is nice. Camp staff is friendly (if you don't include the 2 adults that were arguing in the main office when my 10 yr old son walked in. Saying F---- wasn't needed. Pet friendly. Bottom Line: Not worth the $40 / night (plus $7/ day extra since I have a family of 5). That is $7 a day so for my three night stay it was an extra $28. - Clem94
