Nice, large campground. The sites in the woods are nice but most of those don't have electric. We chose one of the electric sites out in the field. Very nice bathhouses and plenty of places to hike. Large swimming pool within (long) walking distance. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Do be aware of ample poison ivy at some sites. Not hard to avoid if you know what it looks like but watch the kids! We would stay here again. We camped at Codorus State Park in a Motorhome.

Camped there a couple nights during the week. It was very quiet and restful. Camp hosts were very helpful and courteous. We camped on site 120 ( a back-in site) which required at least 8" of leveling for the back axles of my Class C. Bath houses were clean and close by. Firewood was available at reasonable prices. We plan to return in the fall. We camped at Codorus State Park in a Motorhome.

Our site was pretty level and I only had to add 3" of lift for the system in the MH to level it out. Some sites were pretty bad. We had a 50 amp site and it cost no more than the 30 amps sites. There are only a few of the 50 amp sites available and they are not marked on the map. As about one when you check in. Bathrooms and showers were clean and had good hot water but had a faint aroma of the pachyderm house of a few zoos I've been to. Not unpleasant but there. They have paved roads with gravel sites. Verizon MiFi works fine but no local Wi-Fi. They have a nice swimming pool but you have to pay extra for that. They have a dump station. All in all a nice park. Senior discounts are available but the price we paid does not reflect that. We camped at Codorus State Park in a Motorhome.

This campground is part of the PA State Park system. Always very clean, abundant grassy areas, and the people are always very nice to deal with. Many campground hosts are available to help you. Downfall is you can only have one vehicle per site, so an alternate vehicle needs to be parked in the overflow parking area. It's not a far walk to any of the parking lots, so it's not a huge deal. Swimming pool is not in the campground, but very close by. There is a variety of full sun, or full shade sites. Pets are permitted on certain sites. Plenty of activities for children to enjoy. We camped at Codorus State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We had horrible sites. They were not level at all (paved but on a hill and sloped). There was no picnic table (it was located on top of the hill behind us and that camper had taken up 2 tables!) and our fire ring was up on the hill above our camper. But, these were last minute reservations and we didn't have a choice of sites. We toured the campground to look for better sites for our next visit. They do have some really nice sites. We visited the pool just to check it out and will use it the next trip. It looks fantastic! So, as long as you are careful with the site you pick this could really be a nice campground!

The good on this park is nice lake setting. D loop was very shady and room between sites. We had a pet so were not able to get an electric site. Apparently they can't let a pet around people without pets. Strange layout: not so good about this park. We ended up with a site with no hookups for $27/night. Way too much for that. The pet noise and leash rules were not enforced. The site next to us had three dogs that ran loose until another camper told them to get them. Then the youngest dog barked constantly. The speed limit in the park was supposed to be 15, but we had cars driving by doing at least 35, including the police. I certainly would never let my child walk or ride a bike here. This could be a great place to family camp if the rules were enforced. I will not stay here again. We camped at Codorus State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice state park. We stayed in B loop which is wooded and shady versus D loop which is a meadow. Sites are fairly level and have electric (30amp or 50amp) only. They do not have "pet loops", so you cannot walk your dog all the way around a loop, but the walking areas are clearly marked on their map. The lake is nice; you can rent boats, kayaks or canoes. We did not use the pool, but it looked nice. They charged a fee. You can swim in the lake as an alternative. The park is very close to Hanover, PA, where you can visit two pretzel factories. We highly recommend Clair's restaurant. We would stay here again. We camped at Codorus State Park in a Motorhome.

What an incredibly well maintained State Park! Staff and hosts were pleasant and genuinely took an interest in our enjoyment of the campgrounds. Took my girlfriend for her first night out camping in anything and she thoroughly enjoyed it. :-) We were lucky enough to get B65 very near the very clean restroom/utility sinks. (Loop hosts were near there in case of a problem). Site was slightly less than level, but nothing that couldn't be handled. Our site with electric was spot on, cleaned and ready to have a guest. Guests near us all abided by quiet hours, and we slept like babies. This park has earned a RETURN mark on my Google Earth list of sites. We camped at Codorus State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Cost with senior discount $22. This 3,452 acre campground is on land once owned by the Glatfelter Paper Company. The 1,245 acre Lake Marburg has 26 miles of shoreline for boating, fishing and one small cove for scuba diving. Sailing is one of the favorite things to do on this lake. You can not swim in the lake because the Paper Company and the town of Spring Grove are allowed to use the lake for their own needs so the lake rises and falls drastically. The campground has next to it for a price a public swimming pool sitting on the lake that is over a half an acre so 1000 swimmers can use the pool at the same time. The park also has 6.5 miles of trails for bikes and 19 miles of hiking trails. There are four loops for camping plus a special tenting area on a non paved road. Loop A has no electric and loops B,C and D have a mixture of electric 30 and 50 amps and non electric. We were in loop C and our site was not level but riding around the park there are sites that are level but you can not tell by looking at the sites. Loops B, and most of loop C are in the woods near restrooms and water. While Loop D is in the meadow with open sites and these are better for the larger campers but still not all level. This is a nice campground and we would stay here again the restrooms are older but they were clean and we found the check-in process to be excellent with very friendly volunteers or park workers. Check-in is 3 but we were able to arrive near noon and get in with not any problems. Places to visit – The Heritage Rail Trail in York 21 miles to the Mason Dixon Line in Maryland where one can pick up another 20 mile rail trail the Northern Central Railroad Trail. We camped at Codorus State Park in a Motorhome.

$28 is full electric rate. The July 2009 review is a very descriptive review. Nice state park, but some sites are not suitable for MHs due to the incline. We asked and were allowed to drive through and pick a site first. Just beware that making the swing from the exit road to entrance is very tight. Bat-wing reception and Verizon broadband were very good in D loop. We camped at Codorus State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a fairly typical PA State Park campground: no water or sewer hook-ups, just electric. Water isn't a problem as there are numerous water faucets throughout the park where you can quickly fill your fresh water tank on the way in. The 'D' Loop is wide open with only young saplings so, if you don't have AC you might want to try and get a site in the A-C loops that are in the woods. Very nice state park: worth the visit.

We enjoyed our stay at this Pennsylvania State Park campground. Most of the campground is located in shade/partial shade (loops A-C) and most seem to have power (loops B-D). We have a 40' coach and weren't sure we could navigate into spots in the A-C loops so we stayed in the wide open space D loop which has 50 amp power and hard surface parking pads. However, driving through C to get to D we counted at least 20 sites that were workable for us. Next time we may stay in the shaded C loop although power there is 30 amps but it is noticeably cooler. The park appeared to be well maintained and quiet. We stayed Sun-Tue and most of the spots throughout the park were empty. I'm not sure how busy it is on a Fri-Sun. Restrooms/showers were clean. The adjoining 1200+ acre lake is absolutely beautiful. We did take advantage of the $4.50 per night senior citizen (62+) discount. We will definitely camp here again.

The sites here are nice, and the park scenic. They have a nice mountain biking trail area, some pretty hiking trails (although crowded), and the lake is beautiful. On the negative side, I think our cost of $25 for a pet site with no hookups was ridiculous, the woman at the checkin booth was grouchy, and the bathrooms were old and dirty. Fortunately, none of the negatives effected us after we checked in! We camped at Codorus State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The price reflects being a non-resident. As we liked the park and location so much they allowed us to switch to a weekly rate. Only lack of water and sewer kept this campground from a five star rating. Campground was clean, well located, and personnel were very nice. We encountered none of the negatives of the previous reviews. We loved having the units with pets in a separate area. Big rigs sites are in a large open area. Campground host provided maps and excellent information about the area. The campground offered many activities, but we were there to see the nearby attractions of Gettysburg and Lancaster. Codorus is much more reasonable than than anything in Gettysburg and Lancaster. We rode the Rail Trail from York PA to the Mason-Dixon line. One of the best Rail Trails we have used. We would most definitely camp here again. We camped at Codorus State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
