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 KOA in a Motorhome.

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 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 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 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 KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park. The camp store is very complete, nice food selection at very reasonable prices. They escort you to your site. Sites we were on were very long (87,88,89) and had some privacy. Water splash park for kids. Convenient to Hershey but away from all the traffic. We camped at Jonestown KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate included KOA discount. Campground very convenient for those traveling I-81. Very shaded and the trees often make traversing the grounds in a large motorhome cumbersome. Water pressure was low, and use of the Internet was a challenge - slow. The roads within the campground were packed gravel, but I suspect had there been rain, they would have been quite muddy. The front office staff was very helpful and efficient. Had a nice dog park. Would likely return if in the area. We camped at Jonestown KOA in a Motorhome.

Showers were about the worst we've ever seen in a KOA. None of the three in the men's room worked at all. One of three in the women's bathroom, and it was filthy from overuse. We couldn't wait to get out of there and wouldn't return. We camped at Jonestown KOA in a Motorhome.

Easy on/off from I-81 and close enough to Hershey and Harrisburg to make for a logical stop. However, the premium sites are not laid out properly (patio and utilities do not line up as they should. Gravel roads and sites so there is a lot of dust. OK for a few nights. We camped at Jonestown KOA in a Motorhome.

First time at the park. Not too many sites for a large motorhome with a tow. You have to watch out for the trees as you drive through the park. They had some young workers that escort you to your site. Not a lot of room between sites. Most people were there for a night as they were heading north after spending the winter down south. Probably would not return. We camped at Jonestown KOA in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects our KOA card discount. We stayed overnight on our way south to Florida in January, with temps in the teens and snow on the ground, so I can't really speak to the overall appearance or condition of the sites. Our pull-thru site was level though, with easy in and out access. We were escorted to our site by one of the friendly staff. The hook ups were well placed, and we had a concrete patio that would have been more appreciated in warmer weather. The camp store is well stocked with RV supplies and food items, and the snack bar offers a nice selection of sandwiches, burgers, fried chicken, etc, all at very reasonable prices. Our Verizon data and voice service was solid, so we did not use the campground WiFi. We will definitely stop here again, hopefully in better weather. We camped at Jonestown KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here on both ways to our trip to Lk Placid, NY. Easy on/off freeway, and friendly staff. Escort to site, clean, concrete patios, and plenty of space for RV. We camped at Jonestown KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We stopped here on our way home from a long trip and just needed a place to sleep. We were pleasantly surprised with this campground. The staff was really friendly and helpful, the sites were long and level and we did not need to disconnect truck from the trailer. Their camp store is full of whatever you may need. They have a nice little deli and will make you sandwiches and breakfast sandwiches. Very reasonably priced. To look around throughout the park, there are flowers everywhere. Behind us was an old metal bed frame filled with begonias. On a wooden fence wall were lots of painted old tires brimming with plants and vines. We would like to return some day and spend a few days here. We camped at Jonestown KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy off/on I-81. Good overnight spot, clean and well maintained. Gravel roads/grass and concrete patios at all sites. Nice friendly staff, restaurant on site with decent camp store. We would certainly stay there again. We camped at Jonestown KOA in a Motorhome.
