We stayed in Site 62 Loop B (Dog Loop). Loop B has electricity on all sites. No septic or water hookups in the campground. Site was very uneven. Overall it was a nice campground near a large lake where our teenagers took the SUP (Stand-Up-Paddleboard) on. Bathrooms/showers are clean. Quiet campground. We brought a second vehicle and it was free but we had to park it at an overflow area. We camped at Codorus State Park in a Travel Trailer.

First time here. Enjoyed the park and the local Marina. Rented a pontoon boat. Went into Hanover to visit the Amish Farmers Market. Wonderful ShooFly pie! Campgrounds were quiet and had a restful weekend. Sunday they had a worship service in the Community area. We are headed back in September. We camped at Codorus State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Codorus campground is a no frill, out and about with nature, campground. Clean and tidy, easy access, super friendly staff at the gate. The sites in the B loop allow pets, though not all sites have electric. I don't believe any have full hookup. There are several water pumps/faucets in each of the loops, and the dump station is handy. There is a small (and I assume unmanned) "camp store" at the gate that operates on the honor system and therefore I also assume only has ice and firewood. You are allowed to chop up any downed and dead trees for firewood (they leave the trees where they fall and you can go get the wood - we had a pile right behind our site that we used for kindling). The lake is large, has marina where you can rent pontoon boats, paddle boards, fishing boats, canoes and kayaks, and an oar house on another part of the lake for kayak and canoe rentals only. There is a visitors' center with a telescope positioned on the Eagle's nest during the nesting season. Fishing is allowed by permit. There is a nice, large pool that can get VERY crowded on weekends, but during our mid-week stay, it was very moderately attended. They allow food and drinks to come in (no coolers) but you are supposed to consume your food up in the eating/concessions area by the snack bar. The pool is open to the public and pricey. Our camping receipt discounted us to $8 per person per day for the pool (though you can get your hand stamped and go to your car, to the ample picnic area outside the pool area, or back to your campsite throughout the day). In-state residents pay about half that amount. My camping rate above included the $5 per night per extra vehicle charge we paid for a second car. We camped at Codorus State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Hanover is a close-by town that has anything you need: restaurants, fast food, shopping, medical care, kids entertainment in rainy weather (Hickory Hills has laser tag, race cars, etc. and Magic elm skating rink has roller skating. There are a couple of movie theaters also.).

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. 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.

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.

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.

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.

Very nice state park. Site was level a good size. Swimming pool was huge and not crowded at all during the weekdays. Pool can get pricey at $4/person considering it only cost $14/night for campsite. Heard it can get very crowded on weekends too.(1900 capacity). Very close to Hanover, Gettysburg, (took a day trip there), and York. Overall a great cg. Would definitely stay here again.

Our family really enjoyed Codorus campground. We liked the fact that quiet hours began at 9:00pm and just about everyone was good about observing them. Those that didn't were quiet by 10:00, which is what most parks tend to have as a start to their quiet hours. The sites were wooded and well maintained. The staff did frequent patrols and our campground host was very helpful. There was never a line for the showers and the bathrooms were always clean and stocked with soap and toilet paper. We enjoyed Codorus State Park and would stay there again in the future. We camped at Codorus State Park in a Tent.

This is one of my favorite State Park Campgrounds. Site #62 is the best if your looking to a great tent site. It has both shade and sun. My kids loved riding their bikes in front of our site with us being able to watch. It was very quiet this time of year there. The place was very pretty and had more of a fall feel in spring. The bathroom was just a skip from our site. The workers here were very nice. Can't wait to camp here again!!! We camped at Codorus State Park in a Tent.

This was an excellent experience. The camp sites are spacious and very clean. The baths where clean. The Sunday morning worship service was nice - the kids had a good time. The only down fall was the pool area. This is a state park so the pool was very, very, crowded. Otherwise kudos to Codorus. We will definitely camp there again.
