20 RV Parks near Hanover, Pennsylvania
Jul 2016 - $48.00
Decided to stay at Codorus rather than expensive parks closer to Gettysburg. Some sites in trees, newer sites in open grassy area. Paved RV pad. Electricity at the site. Strange no sewer or water at the site. Person at check-in booth was a little surly, but other staff helpful. Two ways to get into park: 1) older entrance was near the swimming pool and then winds up hill, 2) newer entrance comes off road at separate entrance. It does wind around a bit so road lines up with registration booth. Attended Sunday worship service with state park chaplain. Would recommend park to others. - Al Z

We stayed at Codorus State Park campground the first week of July 2016. We stayed over the 4th of July weekend, so pretty busy as you might expect. The entrance to the campground can be challenging to find and google maps never seemed to get it right for me, so be sure to check your directions carefully. The entrance to the campground through the checkpoint is a bit of a mess and can be a bit difficult to navigate with a larger rig. We have a 35' RV and were able to manage OK, but I can see where it could be a bit hairy for larger rigs, 5th wheels or trailers. Plenty of the above in the park though, so they seemed to have managed as well.
The showers / restrooms are centrally located in each loop of the campground with garbage dumpsters nearby. The showers / restrooms are old, but very clean and there was plenty of hot water.
The campground has both non-electric and 30amp electric sites. There is no water or dump facilities at the individual campsites, though there is both fresh water and dual dump stations at the entrance to the campground.
In general, I don't think there's a perfectly level site in the campground. You can find some that are close to level and others that aren't even close. I saw a lot of blocks being used at some campsites to level rigs and trailers. I saw one motorhome that has nearly 6" off the ground on blocks. I'd say that about half the sites have asphalt pads and half have dirt/stone pads.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the park as there is lots to do at this park, especially if you like the boating and fishing on the lake (though there is no swimming in the lake). - lazyjourney

We've been coming here the past few years in the fall. It's a great state park and nice campground. The water park is closed when we come so I can't comment on it, but I've seen it and looks great. The lake is beautiful and we've rented canoes and had lots of fun. There are a few trails to hike. It's a very peaceful here with varying site types from wooded to full sun. - Way2Roll

Clean, welcoming membership campground. Awesome, friendly staff who went above and beyond to make sure that we were pleased with our stay. - Happy Motorhomers

Quick friendly check in, clean grounds, well cared for. Didn't use PAY WIFI (even woman at front desk said it was Tengo and "it stinks" - supposedly they're looking at other options). We used our Verizon Jetpack with 3 bars LTE. No cable TV but we got about 15 stations on the antenna. Our site had a slight grade to it, about 3.5" low in front. Nice grounds for walking and some sites on the water. A fair amount of seasonals like most TT's but most were ok looking. Site was a "double pull thru" and whoever gets there first takes a larger spot and squeezes the other site tight. They really need a divider to set the middle boundry. - HomeOnWheels_US

Staff was outstanding and friendly - instantly repaired a water leak at our site - we were near the barn area and could hear the animals all night long - simply turned on AC fan and it was NOT an issue. - ChickenBone

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

We camped here with friends who have a seasonal site. This is a very large park! You will either need to bring or rent a golf cart here, over a mile long. Very large easy to navigate sites. We camped in the "front section" and the only thing you can hear is Highway 15 running right by! You will most certainly want a site in the back. Also, there was a slight noticeable sewer odor at times. Overall, the location is within easy distance of all Gettysburg has to offer. Very friendly staff, seasonal campers very nice, and park has alot to offer. Good internet and cell service. We will return. - Chieftain1986

We were in a pull thru at the back of this very large park. Hook ups worked well and were placed well. WI FI was non existent in our section, a call to the office explained they were having internet issues. There was a lot of trash left in our site from previous campers. Cable worked well.Themed activities were well thought out. We will stay again. - mahill526

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

This is by far one of the nicest campgrounds we have stayed at, the grounds were impeccable, beautiful lake, nice pool, clean grounds overall, the staff was incredibly friendly, activities for both adults and kids. The staff seemed to always be working to improve on something and could not do enough to help you out, stopped by our site a few times just to make everything was ok. Awesome, we will most certainly be back again! Manager Jaron was fabulous and Bonnie at the desk was most friendly as was the activities director!. Can't say enough good things. Seems they plan some upgrades as well. - cbushneck

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

I have mixed feelings on this Campgroud. First the good. Sites are ok. Beautiful club house and fountain. Paved roads. Price is great. Now the bad. Highway noise, no site prep, ugly mobile homes, no on site management so the 5 mph speed limit ignored. I understand that this Campground is in transition from mobile home park to RV park, but it makes me wonder from the money spent on the club house if the owners are serious about being a Campground as our site, and most of them, do not even have picnic tables! I would hope that they will continue to improve the sites as they need gravel and leveled. Would we return? Maybe. - southwind2004

Small, family owned RV park on western outskirts of York. As is typical of an older RV park, the sites are close together and it borders a busy road (I-30). I ranked it on the high side, though, because of convenience, outstanding service, clean facilities, and recent improvements. I have been coming here for three years and the owners know me when I call and do their best to accommodate my requested site. They live on an adjacent property so are available if needed. I see improvements and new touches every time I visit. They recently finished a large club house that has a patio and other nice outside seating, including some swinging seats and benches in the shady, grassy area across the driveway. There is a large, rocky water feature next to the patio and a beautiful view beyond of Pennsylvania farmland and hills. They often host RV clubs and other groups in the park and I imagine the new clubhouse will be a big draw once more groups discover it. Two large, handicapped-accessible, single-use bathrooms are kept immaculate. There is an on-site laundry room. Most sites are gravel and pretty level. Plenty of over-the-air TV channels. Verizon signal strong. A discount is given for a one-week stay by giving the 7th night free, bringing the cost down to $30/night. - aowcarol

This park is small with narrow paved roads. Asked for a pull through site but entrance to site was blocked by neighbors truck as they had no place to park. Our site 29o was an old broken concrete slab making leveling difficult. Arrived after hours but I phoned and they had my paperwork waiting outside of the office. There is considerable highway noises at all hours. It rained and there was mud where we parked the truck. Which was tracked into truck and RV. We did not use bathrooms or showers. They finished a beautiful community building and have a large rock formation at entrance. They need to spend money on cleaning up the park. Our site was near the side and our view included piles of gravel an old shed and equipment. They should spread some of the gravel on the muddy sites. We noticed these men banging around a building 100 fleet from our site. They were just watching us when we were outside. I looked it up and discovered it was an inpatient rehab center. We felt uncomfortable after that as they were always watching us. The staff at registration was very friendly and helpful but this park still needs work. - dpgllg

We stayed 7 Nights which included Labor Day Monday. We obtained 4 nights with PA discount and 3 nights with GS discount. Total paid was $296.73 or $42.39/avg. You will be asked to provide your PA and GS member # along with expiration date so be prepared. Reservation process was easy. Check-in was fast and efficient. The staff in the office was great about helping us to get the lowest cost combination. Our site was 406 in the newer section. It was a very long pull-through with FHU and clear sky for satellite signal. All hook-ups worked perfectly. Verizon cell was ok. Verizon Mifi wasn't. Fortunately the park wifi was excellent. We had serious rain but no standing water. Trees could use some trimming along the interior roads. Over Labor Day weekend, the park was very full with lots of families. There were lots of activities for kids and they seemed to be having plenty of fun. We were thrilled with location of the park being so close to the battlefield. We stayed busy exploring so didn't spend much time in the campground. At check-in we were given free passes for 3 in-town attractions. We did two of them and particularly enjoyed the diorama. If we return to the area, we would be happy to stay here again. - GottaGoNow

Checked in the first time after hours. They had our reservations and directions waiting at the door. Easy stop off rt. 15. Down the road from Gettysburg. Clean pool. Nice mini golf. Free tickets to an area attraction for staying. Most sites easy pull through. Horse and pet friendly. - MrsTamil

We certainly enjoyed this park. Very quiet, very clean and well kept. Well stocked store. The laundry needs updating. Small washing machines that shake, rattle and roll! Had horse stalls, but we never smelled them or saw any signs of horses being on the grounds. Nice pool and small playground for the children. It was close to everything we wanted to see and do. We spent several days at Gettysburg viewing all the monuments, which were fantastic. We also really enjoyed the museum at the visitor center. - Marilynintexas

Our site is right beside a major highway. We were NOT told that at the time of reservation (in my opinion this should be disclosed at time of reservation).
Prior to arrival and at time of reservation I asked if sites are level multiple times! I was told yes. Get here, front wheels are off the ground. I asked to move sites. So they gave me 3 other options. All too short for us and even more unlevel (for our 40 foot motor home). I see at least 20 sites that would have worked for us that are open, and have been open our entire stay.
Most sites are not level.
Grounds are un-kept. Grass is up to my shin. Were told their lawn mower is not working (no excuse in, my opinion when one can hire landscaping help).
Sewer connections are uphill; therefore not draining properly.
Bathhouse is not air conditioned or heated, not even ventilated. Semi clean.
Some permanent sites are unattractive ("junky"). Others are well-kept.
Had to pay in-full at time of reservation, no refunds. Now I see why! Lesson learned!
Thankfully we are out and about being tourist and not at the CG often. We will not return. Found several other campgrounds nearby that looked like a better fit for us. - JohnsonFam

We stayed for 3 nights in site 237. The utilities were fine, but for that price I don't expect to get gouged for wifi. The site was level with grass and some gravel. Many of sites appear to be seasonal or long term. Many were fixed up nicely, but some looked like a junkyard! The pool needs cleaning and has broken cement and tiles. I consider this campground overpriced for the condition and would not stay here again. - cooktr

We stayed in a pull thru site in the front of the campgound. It was unlevel, gravel . Utilities worked fine. Nice amount of cable channels.The sites are very close in most places. We were supposed to have a back in near the back of this campground, that was extremely unlevel and had standing water due to the recent rain, Alot of the back ins looked this way. I doubt i would stay here again, unless everthing else was booked, and then only in a pull through. - mahill526

Lovely small private campground. Currently sitting out under the awning listen to the crickets enjoying a glass of whiskey. Quiet and peaceful. Close to York and the sites. Right on the York Heritage Rail Trail...a must do if your into rail trails. Manager recommended riding into downtown York (4 miles) and going to the farmers market and have lunch at White Rose Bar and Grill....both excellent recommendations. Check out the Harley factory tour. Lots of wineries around here so tomorrow we'll be wetting our whistles. Staying here on site 22 with out 36ft pusher, plenty of room and height. 20 amp electric may be a downfall for the novice camper but if you know how to do it there is no problem. Running our rear AC with no issues. Beautiful scenery and peaceful spot...grab some ice cream at the dairy as well. - Leon Condor

Just a basic CG. On the plus side, it is right next to a recreational trail that runs from York to the MD line. Gravel roads and pads are in fair condition. And it is quiet. On the minus side, not much for services. Unattended registration (at least on Friday). Very wooded and Not suitable for a tall rig (too many low-hanging branches for my 12.5'). There are only a couple sites with 30A electric and those were filled by what appeared to be long-term campers. The rest of the electric was 20A NEMA 5-15 (household type) outlets. The sewer connections were unusual... coming out of the ground at a 45 degree angle (not sure how I would connect my 90 degree elbow to that). Needless to say, we did not stay there and because there was essentially no 30A service, we will not be returning. If you are tent or TT camping and looking for some quiet, this might be your place. - FreeWheeler

We planned on staying here due to access to parks in York. However, after driving through decided to stay in Elizabethtown. The park has several old RVs (not sure if they are occupied). The restrooms are quite old (require security code to use), the connections are quite a distance from the sites. Wouldn't recommend this park. - Softball29

The park was clean and quiet. We are from Florida and have traveled for 3 summers. We have covered almost every state. This is the first camp site we had to pay extra to have a visitor, and more to use the pool. Everything for the kids seemed to be closed. - veniceburd

This was our first and last time camping at Merry Meadows. We were very excited to camp here because of all the amenities listed and beautiful atmosphere. The first day we arrived (Monday) the pool and mini golf were closed. The second day we stopped in and spoke with the guy working at the snack shack, which is where you show your pool pass and purchase the mini golf. We wanted to make sure it was open, etc. We changed into swimsuits and 10 minutes later were told they were closing the pool, mini golf and snack shack early because not a lot of people have been so far (pool hours are 12-8 pm). We went at 3 pm. The arcade was also closed. The front office and store closed at 1:00 pm.
We were unable to use the amenities we would have liked to use and why we chose Merry Meadows. We also have young children and found out that they also are not allowed to use floaties in the pool which is absurd. I understand not allowing rafts, etc., but not allowing floaties or life jackets for children who can't swim is cruel and ridiculous. You could not pay me to camp here again. It was a waste of our money. - Murphy14

UNBELIEVABLE # of rules and regulations. Our daughter and her husband brought us dinner @ 6pm in the rain and were charged $10 visitor fee plus $20 deposit on a car pass! "There are NO exceptions to our visitor policy!!" All activities with the exception of the pool (12-8 except when they close it early) are an additional charge. Activities are limited to Friday evening and Saturday. Church service on Sunday. TV cable service was poor. - MamaBird
