This was an overnight stop for us on our way to Florida. The park was nearly empty, but that's not surprising in January. We just really appreciate that they're open year round! The staff is friendly and the facilities are well maintained. The guide to our site was polite and informative, without unnecessarily trying to over control our parking. The on-site deli/camp store is extensive, and the hot food on their menu is delicious on a cold night. They deliver to your site as well. The WiFi is adequate with reasonable speeds, but I don't know how it is when the park is busier. Verizon cell service is strong, and their cable system has a good variety of channels. We most certainly will be back! We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Motorhome.

This KOA is right off of I-81 and is a terrific transient stopping place. We saw many campers come in for the night. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We were guided to our site. One of the best features is the camp general store. At this time of year they are open from 5:00 AM to 9:00 PM. In addition to being a good convenience and camp store they have a short order kitchen and provide site delivery. Nice touch.

As stated, it is very close to I-81 and there is quite a bit of road noise. Although, there may be attractions in the area, i do not see this campground as a destination in itself.

We will continue to use this as a transient site. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is a typical KOA looking a little worn around the edges. Interior road is dirt and gravel and big rig access is average. We had an escort to our level spacious gravel and dirt pull through site which had plenty of space for our towed. The site had a concrete patio, picnic table and swing. No satellite reception due to many matureI'm trees, WiFi and cell were fair, however there is some road noise. Bathrooms were spotless and the laundry clean spacious and well equipped. Pet friendly with a fenced dog park, doggie bags and disposal station. This is a good overnight stop when traveling 1-81, and we would stay here again. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Motorhome.

Very pleasant campground with spacious sites. Ours had a view of a horse corral which we walked over to pet the horses.

Also neat was food delivery to your site from the general store. Very inexpensive. They have sandwiches and sides which were yummy: fried pickles, onion rings, jalapeño poppers.

Camped here on Labor Day and was very quiet. Nice stopover as it is easy off & on from I81. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Motorhome.

Just an overnight stay. Escorted to the site. Asked for and they changed me to one that would allow satellite reception. They have a great camp store and serve rotisserie chicken at dinner (I smelled it at checkin, smelled great, but had other plans). Also had breakfast. I had a breakfast burrito that was delicious and inexpensive. Site was pull through and roomy. There is a creek running along one side of the camp. I could see staying a few days here. I didn't hear any noise from the freeway. Truck stop right off the freeway for fueling. About 20 minutes to Harrisburg. They also have a shuttle to HersheyPark. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a good park for overnight stops only, this is not a destination campground. There is no pool or mini golf. They do have a very small splash pad and jumping pillow, only suitable for very young kids. These were extra and not included in your site price. Most kids would be bored. They do offer canoe rentals, which is all there would be to do. Wi-Fi was decent and store had a lot to offer. Site was level and power was good, but water pressure was very low, almost a trickle by the time we left. A few cable stations were available. We would not stay again unless in the area and needed to stop overnight. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Travel Trailer.

First time stay at a "Journey KOA" right off I-81. Someone escorted us to site. Restaurant and store very convenient. Dog park clean and fenced in. Only stayed one night so site was near road. But for future reference there is a lovely creek with tubing and canoes onside of campground. If we were staying longer, would have asked for site for lovely, restful views. Fast food restaurant right across street as well as gas station. Pleasant surprise staying here. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Kids can fish, tube, canoe, kayak with rentals on site. Otherwise, convenient on/off access to I-81. Got food from Wendy's across street as well as camp store. Made travel easy.

Very easy access despite construction in the area. Friendly young office staff. We were escorted to our pull-through site, which was one of the easiest in and out I've seen. Wi-Fi OK, but not great. AT&T cell service good. After we parked and I was getting hooked up, two workers arrived and surveyed the trees for low hanging branches. They trimmed back a couple small ones that they felt could be a problem. We plan to stay here again on our return trip. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Motorhome.

Young but helpful, courteous and competent staff. Great camp store. Campground is easy on/off for route 81. Roads are gravel, but the sites we like best are right by the creek, and have a concrete patio. Great place to relax, check out the close by state parks, or look at the military equipment at Fort Indiantown Gap. Our family loves the place for a getaway. Quick trip from the park to Hershey area too. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

They rent canoes, kayaks and tubes to use on the creek. There is a "Splash Pad" for little kids, but no pool. If you really want to take a dip, Fort Indiantown base offers public access to their pool! If you want to do Lake fishing/boating - Memorial Lake State Park. For good BBQ, - Shakedown BBQ not far from the Campground - Great Pork, Brisket and Chicken in Grantville. Breakfast - Farmer's Wife Restaurant. Friday Nights - check out Linda's Speedway for dirt track, down-home racing fun!

This is a very nice campground with easy access from I-81. The streets and pads are gravel, and there are a lot of tall trees, although we had no issue with satellite. The streets and turns are a little tight, but our escort to the sight (the owner, I think) was very helpful and suggested backing out of our site into an open field as an alternative to "pulling through" when we left. We will definitely consider staying here again when we are in the area. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Motorhome.

Roads were dusty and the hookups need upgrading. We paid for a pull through along the stream but most of the pull throughs required you to back in due to the location of the hookups and trees. The staff was helpful and the location is good for those traveling on I-81 or I-78. We would stay here again but would not pay extra for a pull through. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This year-round park is a regular overnite stop for us on our January post holiday trek south. The facilities are well maintained, and the staff in the combined office, general store, and deli are friendly and helpful. The sites are fairly large and well laid out, with the utilities well placed. Verizon cell voice and date service is strong. Many sites are surrounded by tall trees, making satellite use difficult unless you request one of the sites with a clear view as we do. The park cable service is good though, with the usual compliment of channels. We fully expect we'll return to this park again and again. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We love the fried chicken from the park deli! The Hess gas station next door to the park usually has one of the lowest prices in the area, although big rig access is somewhat limited.

We stayed here 4 years ago before they became a KOA. They were good then and are great now. Good WiFi, friendly staff, and easy access to sites. Even with the cold, it was a great stay. Would highly recommend for overnight or longer stay. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
