Codorus State Park has a nice campground. However, there are not many sites that allow pets, and even fewer pet-friendly sites with shade. I wish I had known that most PA state campgrounds don't have water hookups before we got there, even "modern electric" sites. If I stayed there again I would get site 44 due to its proximity to the water spigot in case we needed to refill the tank. If you don't have a pet, site 57 is also close to a water spigot. We camped at Codorus State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.

I rated it low but we liked this park a lot. Its gorgeous, quiet & has lots to do. It's actually very close to home so it makes a nice getaway, & I can still keep close to my business when I need to. I will camp here again. You can only have 1 vehicle at each site, & God forbid you touch a single blade of grass with a tire. Now most sites are very long but we have 40' of camper & a crew cab dually. We are long & wide. Blacktop space gets eaten up real quick. My only complaint about this place was the "Campground Host Parking Nazi" & the way handicap placards don't mean squat in this DCNR Government owned park. They do have Handicap sites, & handicap parking spaces at the bath houses but I was quite annoyed with the "Campground Host Nazi" in our area. We had a visit from my parents & their friends , all over 80 years old & in a handicap placarded vehicle. Two of them were disabled. They pulled up in front of our site & before they could step one foot out of the vehicle, the "Nazi" was running toward us telling them they had to move the vehicle, they couldn't park there. There were handicap spaces not 50 ft away at the bath houses, but he made them park all the way down around the corner & walk better than 1/2 mile back to the camper. Naturally being much younger & better able , we parked it for them, but I am appalled at the way our handicap seniors were treated in a DCNR park. the next time we went there they actually had a paper telling you how to properly park your vehicle as not to touch the grass,(which desperately need mowed both times we were there) We camped at Codorus State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is nice state park in a central location. There are plenty of big sites so we had no issues. Pets sites are limited and together to prevent "issues" - VERY nice! There could be more water stations. The park is adding more electric sites. Most of the sites are paved and LEVEL! Beautiful looking pool (HUGE) that was not open being early in the season. Other campers were nice friendly and no issues were noted. We will be back. We camped at Codorus State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
