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. We camped at Deer Run Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Deer Run Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Deer Run Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Carlisle was close and worth a visit. Walmart was 10 minute drive.

Check in was easy and staff offered to escort us to the site. Site was uneven but I was able to level with blocks easily. Sites available to non-long term campers are somewhat small, but not more than other camps. Staff brought firewood to my site and sold me ice after hours since the owners site is across from the office. Office had the necessities and ice cream bar. Pool was big, clean, and in decent repair. Camp had a Hawaiian Luau (Pig Roast) the Sat we were there. Neighbors were friendly. Laundry, showers, and bathrooms weren't crowded or dirty. The "Game Room" was the only real disappointment as most of the games were broken or inoperable such as the dirty broken pool table. All in all I highly recommend them especially for someone going to a car show at Carlisle. We camped at Deer Run Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed at this campground due to its close distances to Carlisle Event Park (Chrysler Nationals), Hershey Park, and Gettysburg National Military Park.

We stayed here in early April, and had reservations. We were given the wrong site, because they had already given our site to someone who arrived before us. The site we had was actually part of the road. The campground is not laid out well, with sites stuck in here and there. The signage inside of the campground is also very confusing. This is mainly seasonal sites with a few sites available for nightly rental. The play ground and pool did look OK. We would not come back here again and would not recommend it to anyone else. We camped at Deer Run Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.
