We have stayed here a couple of times as it comes at a convenient stop time in our itinerary. The place is really an RV dealership with some campsites in the back. A trucking company is adjacent which has noisy all night operations that can affect some sites. Our last visit occurred when the dealership seemed to have an overstock of units. Most sites and access roads were being used for storage. We arrived around 2 p.m. and only one site was available. Staff was friendly and diligent in making sure we could fit into the space before we paid. No sewer at site and the dump station was positioned on the passenger side of the rig on exit. We didn't bother to try to use it. We would strongly recommend that anyone planning on staying here, call ahead to be sure there will be sites available. - halfdimes

Sites and common road were somewhat tight for our larger RV and is a muddy mess after any rainfall. Appreciate being able to stay for free to have some service work done on the RV but truly felt like it was only adequate for the price (not) paid. If I were paying to stay here I would deduct a rating point for every dollar per night they charged me. - Snidely Whiplash

I stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. Not many places honor the Passport rate over a holiday weekend but they do. Lots of noise from I-81. The campground is in one part of the storage area for new and used RV's. I did not see any units that could have been considered used for parts. A short walk found a dumpster to dispose of trash. There is a complete RV parts and service dept. It was an adequate place to stay. I didn't feel like I was locked in or unsafe at any time during my 3 day stay here. - mrracechaser

Great location for us, 6 miles from Whitetail ski resort and even closer to the golf course. It's back in the middle of nowhereville, but a nice quiet campground. Did have a playground that my kids loved. Didn't look as pretty as the web site pictures, employees were VERY friendly and saw them driving around camp ground a lot, which makes me feel better. There are a lot of live ins and a lot of people that leave their camper for part time visits but its was quiet. On the Saturday night that we where there we did hear some load music and people but it didn't last long or late, not sure why it stopped but it did. (not sure if employee stopped it or it stopped on it's own) WE WILL STAY AGAIN AND WILL UPDATE AS NEEDED. - suzipittard

We only spent one night here and it was a long way from the highway--through the town of Chambersburg--not easy to get to! The owner was very accommodating and gave us our pick of pull through sites on a large treeless grassy field. (No sewer; 30 amp.) There was a creek and wooded area near our site. The wifi was awful and there was no cable TV. I doubt we'd return. - Lyn T

Very neat and well maintained. It is an events site. When you call, they say you do not need reservations other than for special events. We pulled in with no notice and they had lots of level spaces for our RV on a well mowed grassy field with choices of 50A or 30A sites with good water and it seems no Sewer hookups. Friendly manager. A great overnight stop just a few miles off the Interstate. - srfox

We stayed at Twin Bridge Campground over Memorial Day Weekend. This was the only campground with a site available at the last minute, and that was only because of a cancellation. If you look at the pictures it looks crowded; however, we stayed at site #48 which was on the creek and there was a decent amount of space between sites. The dogs loved playing in the creek. There was a nice "service" on Sunday with Gospel singers. It was nearby some great state parks. There was a bridge on route 30 we had to pass under which didn't allow much space, so if your RV is large you might want to find another way. Overall we really enjoyed our stay. - Lori and Larry

Watch, Watch, Watch your routing into the park. From northbound I-81 my GPS took us a route I wouldn't want to do again, with finale being a corner we couldn't make, getting into the campground. Had to hold up traffic while we disconnected and went the other direction to get turned around...good grief! Refer to their website for approach directions...don't trust your GPS for directions. I depend on my GPS (Rand-McNally) because of low bridge, bad railroad crossing warnings, etc. but this time it really let me down!
Campground entry is a dusty mess..a little pavement from a few decades ago with dust galore. People were polite and clearly try to cover for some of the ills of the cg. Grossly overpriced...unless, even with the world-famous KOA discount, you would consider $50/night to be a deal. Just another severely overpriced KOA! - Tcamperman

We were looking for a place to stay for 1 night and chose this KOA since we have had good experiences staying at KOA in the past. This KOA is tired and the roads to get to the park are vert narrow to the point that with on-coming traffic, you have to slow down or stop to pass by each other. Once in the park, the sites are clean but show their age. The staff is very friendly and tries to be helpful. You will be escorted to your site. We stayed here in a 45ft motorhome towing a 25ft stacker trailer. We were quite the show and apparently the biggest rig to come here, ever. We had a good nights sleep and all was well. We would not return here because access to this KOA is very tight, out of the way (which is not a bad thing) and for what you get, a little too expensive. The chicken and goats pen, however, were an interesting touch. - Olivia Las Vegas

At check in the lady asked if we were staying in a 43' 5th wheel. I said yes. Two nice young men escorted us to our site. Too small for us to fit. They called the lady in the office. She put us in a nice pull through, then she asked the escort when we were leaving. WHAT????? (She had just checked me in and charged my visa for 4 nights.)
SO she moved us again.
This is the 3rd site. Right next to a cabin. Cabin's porch looks directly into our rv. Can't open our awning due to a close tree. UGH!!!!!
Lots are very close to each other, but offer some shade. Sites are gravel and feature a picnic table.
Would NEVER EVER stay here again. Long narrow road to get here. - 20165thwheel

Located in the gorgeous mountains, this place is a gem. There are many seasonal sites here, and that does not detract from the quality and friendliness in the least. The owners are superb. Our power and water were adequate. Our site was gravel and level. There is a nice pool and a little store. - LittleCastle

Saunderosa is a very nice campground. I have always enjoyed camping there. There are some very nice spots by the creek. The kids especially enjoy playing in the water all day. The pool is adequate but you have to pay extra to swim in it. Saunderosa could use more weekend campsites as most sites are permanent. And the bathrooms also need more attention during busy weekends. - GaryKPA

BEAUTIFUL PARK with great services. Stayed at o e of preferred sitses. Grear distance between sites. Escorted to site and stayed until hook ups completed. - JOHNGW

Kind of expensive for Hagerstown. We paid extra $10 to pick site & $25 to checkout late 6pm. The 700's sites are more level than the 200's. Visually sites look level, but when parked, front is lower than rear. Front tires almost off ground. Sites are not level, but at least they are as flat as can be for the land. Laser tag $5 day, $10 night. Zip line similar charge. Water slides free. Clean resort. Nice pool and playground and activities, store, and restaurant. Not much to do in Hagerstown outside resort. - univmd

This park is geared to families and I understand that and usually when I use it, is for a one night stop. But $89 for one night and the site was not level is just frustrating. The site was easy in and out on gravel and out in an open field. The entrance to the park does wind around trees and you need to be careful.
This time I dropped them down from an 8 to a 6 do to them wanting me to stay 2 nights or no reservation. To do one night I had to wait till the week of the visit to reserve the site. I understand it is summer and they can be busy. When I got here, half the sites in the field were open. They could have given me the single night when I called 3 weeks before, as they knew then that they probably would not be full. - peddy dick

What a treat to find this only 2 hours from home. Our camp hosts were the BEST! Like meeting up with old friends. These are electric only sites, with dump and water in the loop. Paved roads. Beach, but no lifeguard. Paddle boats and canoes for rent. Not all loops allow dogs.
The Cowan's Park website itself has very detailed information about each of the sites, much more than what you find through Reserve America. We reserved our spot 3 days before we wanted to arrive and thought we would have a bad spot. Not so! The website said the parking pad was 15 feet wide, so I thought we would be on top of other campers. We were parked in the center of our pad, 3 slides and an awning were open, dog's x-pen set up (actually 2 pens hooked together), and we STILL had about 15 feet before the start of the neighbor's parking pad. Some of the sites in loop A were BAD - small, on the road, or had the water spigot in their site and would only be suitable (if at all) for a tent. But since those sites did not show up in my filtered search for an RV site, we didn't have those offered as optional ones to choose from. There is a close-by parking lot for 2nd vehicle parking.
There is a small fishing/boating lake to walk around - 1-1/2 miles around, but use caution if you have a large dog. There is a 25-foot metal bridge in one part that a dog cannot walk across. You could carry a small dog easily, and it is no problem for people, or even bikes, but dog feet - no way. No real way to describe it. My husband's bad back struggled to carry our 75-pound dog across. The next day we just back-tracked and did not walk the whole circle. - WMRamblers

We stayed for 2 nights during the week, and it was pretty chilly, so the park was sparsely filled. The area is absolutely beautiful. 6 miles off of the main road to the park entrance, and no cell service, so it is ideal to get away. The bathroom and shower facilities are top notch. Very clean, tiled, very nice. We stayed in the "B" Loop. Its sites are less close together, and fewer of them, so it is more private. Also, the entire B loop is dog friendly. We stayed in site 190. It was about as far from the bathroom as any site in the loop, but was across from the water spigot. There is a beautiful lake in the middle of the park. Canoes are available for rent or you can bring your own. - hmmmm

Cowans Gap is a great campground. The only complaint I had was that there are no water connections at the sites. The campground is beautiful. We stayed in Area B. The sites here are much more spacious and spread out than in Area A, and it is right on the lake. A few of the sites are pull-through. There is only one dump station in the park, in Area A, and there are no sewer hookups.The "beach" is on the opposite side of the lake, and only a short (10 minute) walk away. If I stayed here again I would get either site 184 or 190 due to their proximities to the water spigot. 184 was also a pull-through site. We ran out of water and had to refill the fresh water tank with a 7-gallon container, which got VERY heavy carrying from the water to the camper. - Lori and Larry

If this park had sewer on more sites or even a dump station, I would give it a better rating. However, we were happy here and the office people were very helpful. We stayed here 3 nights and were very comfortable...just no place to dump. The sites are set up different than any other park, but we were near a small creek and felt lucky to have the site we did. BTW, the restrooms were very clean. And there is a well equipped RV store on the premises.
People advised that you can't turn left to get on I-81 when you leave, but turn right and it's only 2 miles down to I-81 south (or north). - Ginny H

Gravel roads & sites in a treed gully. Sites are very close together with no privacy and most sites won't allow satellite reception. Had good wifi with full hookups but no cable. Friendly management gave directions to a free boat launch on the Potomac. Close to I-81 good for an overnight stop. - Appleknocker

Stayed here one night again, as it is about halfway on our annual NC to NY pilgrimage. Went with a 30/50/W/S/E this time. Site was nice and level, with easy in and out. Love the easy access from I-81, friendly helpful staff, large store ,and propane. We should probably try other campsites in the area, but why fix something that isn't broken. - BounderPounder

Older state park, in need of updating. Only a few sites are adequate for size 32 and larger, and those tend to be closer together...the ones near the bathhouse are very close together. Electric only. Water near the dump station, but placed in an awkward place. Also water near the bathhouse...if you have enough hose! We used the camp as a cost effective way of visiting Gettysburg NMP. The camp host was exceptionally outgoing and represented the park well. - tom&kathryn

This is an older State campground. There are about 12 sites that would work for a big unit: we have a 40' fifth wheel. We live close and use this park so our grand children can visit. The rest rooms, showers are OK but very outdated. The sites are good sized for the most part, the main road is paved but sites are really dirt for the most part, need restoned badly. Not bad unless it rains, then there is a lot of mud. We camp here with friends a lot as there is a group circle for about 7 units, that is big and open. Pool is about 1 mile away at the main park, there is good fishing and lots of hiking trails. Our price reflects a resident and senior discount. - rmckee

This is an older state park. There is a large public area with picnic tables and large pool. Campers get discounts on the pool. Park was just okay, however, you have to consider the age of the park. Bathrooms/showers were older but kept clean by staff. We stayed in the Hosack area. A little overgrown in some sites. Not many spaces for large rigs. We were very close to the next camper. Smaller sites were nicely spaced between campers. - cosmotaf

We were the only vehicle being used. There were a number of abandoned trailers. The swimming at the river was closed and is a hike away from the park. The advertised "museum" is run down and with unused equipment around. The caretaker was helpful. Would not recommend. - User2759
