Price reflects Thousand Trails membership. Campground is slowly making improvements. They are starting to try and control site usage better as in suggesting sites that better fit the size of the unit and needs. They still need to level some sites and trim some trees but, in their defense, sites become filled as fast as they empty. Sometimes it is hard to get a nice transit sites as they are holding sites to become seasonal but, in a pinch, will let transits use them. Small improvement. - DBLR

Some sites spacious, others crowded, not level but only took couple of boards on one side. WiFi didn't work...said wrong password and staff said " it should work". Not well designed. Host building about 1/2 mile away. Pick your own site. - Marie Hodgdon

Huge Thousand Trails park on the outskirts of Lancaster. As soon as someone leaves another takes their site day or night.
The site we were in wasn't very level. We were probably half a mile from the highway which is pretty busy for a 2 lane road. The exit is on a hill entering a curve so it is not the best.
Park is pretty quiet considering it is so busy. - mrracechaser

Very beautiful view from river front sites. River front row of sites are level. Interior roads are one lane wide only. Beware that you may run into oncoming traffic and someone has to back up. Thus checkout is 11am and checkin is 3pm! Many beautiful trees, beware not to run into them. No place to hookup toad except on interior road blocking all traffic. Basically a very tight old campground. T-Mobile service was good. Did not try their Tengo internet. Had to mail deposit by check, very old school and inconvenient reservations process. They sold wet bundle of wood to us. - univmd

I booked late but managed to get a decent spot. It was a pull in, not a back in. Odd, but functional. Site 303 is in the back of the campground and quite quiet. The big complaint is that all the sewer hookups were non threaded and so many had hoses just stuck in and not sealed. There was a lot of odor from them. A sewer donut works well and should be required. Dog friendly but no poop bag stations or dog park. Good cable with 46 stations. Campground is next to Dutch Wonderland and shares the entrance. There could be a long line to get in during peak season and early in the day. Entrance is directly across the street from the Tanger Outlets. An Amish wagon came through the campground in the evening selling pastries and jellies. - DebDon

This is a beautiful campground with nice views of farmland. We saw lots of cows grazing each day just across the stream. The campsites are spacious and we had a good amount of space separation from our neighbor. Check in was quick and easy and the staff was friendly. The campground is connected to Dutch Wonderland which we took our kids to one day. It was really nice to just walk over to the park and not have to drive or pay for parking. There is so much to see and do in the area. Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile all worked great. We enjoyed our stay and would stay there again if we are ever in that area again. - Love2Camp777

Sites are very close. No campfires. Sites were muddy after a rain. We were backed up to a broken wooden fence which separated the site from an Amish farm. Campground is centrally located in the Amish countryside. AT&T as well as T-Mobile cell service both worked fine. Uber is available in the area and we used them to get around. No Pool. Many seasonal sites with people returning to their trailers in the late afternoon. Not really a family type atmosphere. Don't think we will return here. Owners very pleasant. - Zman1403

The only good aspect of this campground is the cable and WiFi. It appeared the majority (90%) of campers were permanent residents. The roads had poor drainage, the gravel area for fifth wheel was to narrow. When you stepped out of camper, you stepped in mud. We were told if you want to use a rug it has to be on the gravel so we didn't even bother to get rug out. The dog walk was about 30 yards long by 3 ft wide and that is being generous. All sites are back ins and not on an angle so very unfriendly for big rigs ( ours is 38 ft fifth wheel). There was minimal parking for truck after backed in camper. Looked at other campgrounds in area and we were sad we did not stay at one of them. Will not stay here again. - P Ardis

This is not a resort. It is a smaller, older but very well maintained park. All sites are back-in's and fair sized. Parking the 1 ton truck perpendicular in front of the fifth-wheel was required by staff and made the road through a bit narrow. The laundry facilities were spotless. Here's what will get us to return here without a moment's hesitation: The Management. We arrived with a trailer repair issue and had to rent a car. Without great detail let me say these folks are the nicest, most accommodating, generous, helpful husband & wife team we've yet met during our four years of travel. Give this park your consideration...it's worth it! - TPDBOB8687

Nice quaint little RV park next to a farm. It has some historical significance as there is a mill and a wooden bridge on the property.
No asphalt, just dirt roads...so its dusty on dry days.
There is a creek that runs on two sides of the park and the sites are big enough where you can sit outside and enjoy the water.
People are very pleasant and there are work/stay programs here.
Not enough 50 amp sites but plenty of 30 amp sites.
Off RT 30 and secluded enough to enjoy the quiet. - Dmann1

This is a small campground located right next to a farm. Sites are level with dirt/gravel pads. Our electric and water hookups were on the opposite side of our rv, but we were able to position it so that our 25 foot electric cord would reach. There is a creek that runs past one side of the campground and fishing is allowed. Staff is friendly and helpful. - JC06

This is a small quiet campground. Our site was dirt/gravel that backed up to the creek and was level. Our site had nice tree cover which was nice for our dogs to stay in the shade. There are sites right in front of the office that don't have any shade so we were glad we didn't have one of those. It is next to a working farm. It was nice to sit by the campfire and hear the horse and buggy go by on the road. Very peaceful. An Amish family came around selling hand crafted items in the evening. Very close to activities of Lancaster and Strasburg. Staff was pleasant on checking in. Pool was clean but not heated. We would stay here again. - joinpa

Easy and friendly check-in process. Electronic gate on our loop (but not all) which I like. Sites were spaced nicely on our loop. All utilities well placed and in good repair. Free WiFi worked well. Good location right on Highway 30. Some traffic noise but no issue with AC running. - Daryn

The large rig sites were wide and spacious. The best landscaped park we have ever stayed at. Close to all shopping and attractions around the Lancaster area. - Rmpbap

Lovely quiet campground on a rather level site. We were in shade under a huge tree so didnt need the awning. Staff were very helpful. I would stay here again. - Aussie Chums

Lovely location with well maintained bathhouse and grounds. We had the park model, cottage and an RV site. The park model was very accommodating for the 5 of us to hang out. The cottage and park model both had air conditioning and everyone was comfortable. The park has a mixture of longer and short term folks, and everyone we met was super nice. I have a class b and had ample space in our RV spot with full hookups. - sak_lll

Very well kept park. Quiet and by a nice Creek. Lady running the park is nice and helpful. The only downside is that if you are in the area for the Amish experience the park is a long way out. Going back and forth takes quite a bit of time. - FarmerDan

Very peaceful campground. I usually stay at a site in the lower end of the campground, by the creek. Surprisingly not many bugs. The managers, husband and wife are very nice people. Well stocked store, nice price on firewood which they will deliver right to your site. There are sites up the hill and in the woods, but they are mostly seasonal campers. All in all a very nice place to relax. Will definitely be returning!!!! - slomotion039

Pit toilets. Lower areas are nice. But sites on top of the hill are rough and have older RVs, tarps, refrigerators, ect. No on-site sewer. Seasonals are cheap, with a waiting list. But you can only come weekends, and one two week period per season. The area is scenic. Hosts are very nice. No pool. Minimal playground. Big grassy areas for kids to play. Generally clean, but needs real bathrooms. - Denial Guru

This is a lovely, tree shaded campground with really nice amenities. There's a Church Service on Sunday (church bells ring - nice), and entertainment on Saturday. One of the nicest campgrounds we stayed at, so far. We also had an medical emergency. The campground, and a fellow camper, helped us through a scary time. Left to our own devices, it would not only have ended our vacation but would have caused great distress. However, with the help of very nice people at the campground, within a few hours we were back on vacation! Thank you, all. - Susan Layland

We came for 1 week and ended up staying 2 months. Very quite park. Close to everything. Located in beautiful farmland. The staff has been amazing to us. We will differently come back. We found a great church to attend. Very peaceful here. - tanya mitchell

This was our second trip to this campground. First one was unsatisfactory but gave it another try. Office staff was courteous but not real friendly.
New pool was nice but deepest point was 4 feet only. Center of pool had volleyball net and also had a basket ball net. Made actual swimming impossible.
Site were EXTREMELY narrow. Campers literally on top of each other. Sitting out you were able to look into the windows of the next camper.
We were with friends and we did have an end site, #16. Unsatisfactory site along with the others even though it was on the end. Couldn't sit outside of the trailer under the awning because the ground sloped down and felt like you were sliding out of your chairs. Had to sit at the back end of the trailer almost in the bushes to have a level site to sit, and even that sloped down. Didn't use picnic table because of slope.
Check out time was noon. RIDICULOUIS!. All other campgrounds check out usually after 1 p.m. We left the campground on a Sunday. Church services were at 10 a.m. Unable to attend church because we needed to get packed up and hooked up to meet the NOON CHECKOUT time.
Will NEVER use this campground again. Gave two chances and failed at both.
On the plus side, we had a beautiful view of the farm land. Unfortunately this was the only positive I could comment on.
I gave it a 3 star but my gut says its only a 2 star facility. - SandraAlethea

Campground is dated. Bathrooms absolutely need an update. We were there simply because it was the closest campground to the Hershey area that wasn't booked. Sewer connections ran uphill from the trailer. Site was nowhere close to level. We wouldn't go again. - Skippy9842

We made our reservation Sep 13, 2017 online for Thanksgiving 2017. The online reservation program and Pinch Ponds own website made no mention of water being turned off for winter. We thought we would have full hook-ups as stated on the reservation confirmation. Even when we arrived, the staff didn't mention that the water had been turned off. We didn't know there was no water until after the RV was leveled, slides were out and I went to hook up the water. I completely understand the need to turn off the water and winterize certain areas of campgrounds - that is certainly not the issue. The issue is that we were not notified ahead of time. The staff was able to run a hose to our site so that we could fill our tank. We made the best of it and didn't let it ruin our Thanksgiving. As far as the Campground goes, it has a mixture of seasonal and nonseasonal. Some of the seasonal sites are rundown and messy. Our site was sloped to driver's side and we had to put the wheels on blocks to get the auto level to work properly. Trash dumpster was overflowing. Office/store building was nice, but other buildings were run down and in need of repair. Most likely will not return due to inadequate communication from the staff, noise from I-76 and an adjoining shooting range (even Thanksgiving day, range was active). - Joe G1

We stayed here because it was between Hershey and Lancaster. The access was easy and the site was level. As mentioned before the next door shooting range was annoying but we would stay there again. - HaveDieselWillTravel

Made advanced registration but when we showed up at the entrance gate the gentleman said he did not have us on record. Nevertheless, he was very helpful and accommodating guiding us to a site. Turns out the office was closed on Sunday very early so there was no one to check with about the reservation and no one available (except the maintenance gent) to pay for the propane we obtained. It would have been nice if the person who took the reservation had told us these things before we showed up. Other than that the park was clean and neat. Since it was pouring rain most of our overnight stay we cannot comment on the facilities there. - Bob & Stephanie

Very small spots in F section. We we so close to camper next to us that we could smell their sewer. I should have taken it as a warning when the ranger ask me how many blocks we had with us when we got there. No level spots and no way we had enough blocking. Weeds even in flower beds taller than us. And shooting nearby all day all weekend. Picnic table at site was black from weather. We will not use this campground again. - Rshoster67

We stayed 2 nights for the Hershey RV show. Easy to get to from the interstate. It was a last minute decision so the park was very full. The extremely nice staff gentleman that met us at the gate and took us on a golf cart to all the site options that were still available to us was very helpful and kind. We picked a site that was easy to get in and out of. To be able to hook up to sewer we had to place our 5er so close to the side of the road that we were not able to extend our awning. The park needs lots of updating and maintenance. I did not go into the bathrooms or showers but my husband said I would not use them. Two of the showers were broke and in need of some serious cleaning. Our first night there we heard constant gun range shooting until past 8pm. There are quite a few of permanent sites and a few looked pretty "interesting" to say the least. The sites that had more privacy did not have sewer hook up but did have electric and water. Getting our RV in some of those sites with all the overhanging trees and tight turns would of been not worth the hassle for only 2 nights. I was grateful that we found a campsite on such short notice for the RV show but would not return there to camp again. - debwright
