The park grounds are very well maintained, the grass is mowed, the sites are mainly level. The front sites are charged an extra fee even for Elite TT Members. We stayed in section H which seemed to mainly have larger motor homes. The roads inside the park in section H are asphalt paved. The other side of the lake were gravel roads and seemed to be where the families stayed. Friday night was movie night and it looked like a lot of the families enjoyed the movie. Saturday night they had a live band which drew a good crowd. We really enjoyed the park and so far it is one of our favorite TT Parks. We camped at Thousand Trails - Hershey in a Motorhome.

The Hershey Chocolate World is not far away. Stores are within 6 miles along with restaurants. We enjoyed the hometown restaurant in Palmyra. Take a drive to Lancaster and visit the Amish country out door shops.

We are non TT members who were traveling with members, so we paid the non member price. Honestly, I would not have stayed here for that price vs. value. Overall, facility was simply just ok. Roads (between the speed bumps and pot holes) was one of the worst I have experienced in our travels. The speed bumps are ridiculous. Facility is driven towards families with kids....so if your a non-kid traveler, check out someplace else. Wifi worked but so slow, count on your cellular data if internet is important to you. We camped at Thousand Trails - Hershey in a Motorhome.

We signed up with Thousand Trails in order to defray some of our camping costs since we are traveling full-time. This was the first TT campground we visited (and why our stay was free.... 30 days are included free in the membership). From what we have heard, this particular campground is one of the nicest ones in their network, and I can believe it. It's very well kept, offers a lot of amenities (pool, tennis courts, mini golf, activities for the kids, etc) and is centrally located, close to all the major Hershey attractions.

My only ding is that our spot was very tight. Along with most of the 'big rigs,' we were in the H loop. There are some sites on the inner part of the loop that are quite spacious. The ones on the outer part though, could be very narrow and right next to each other. Luckily, the site we had was long, so our picnic table fit behind our RV, but I would not have put our awning out because it would have come so close to our neighbor's rig.

Like other TT campgrounds, you can't reserve a particular site ahead of time, so you just get what's available when you arrive. It worked out ok for us, but we saw someone else completely unable to get their rig into the one available spot. I'm not sure where he ended up going, but I'm sure it was stressful.

All in all, we would come back to this park to visit the local sites, and for families looking for a destination campground, I think it would be great. We camped at Thousand Trails - Hershey in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed our stay at the Hershey Thousand Trails park - the rate is free for Thousand Trails members / family courtesy card holders for 50 amp sites in loop H.

The roads in the park are in good shape and are reasonably easy to navigate even with a 43' motorhome. The pull-through site that we had in H loop was easy to get in/out of, though the trip up the hill and then the turn into the one-way downhill street was a little hairy. The back-in sites on the outer portion of H loop were not very heavily used - they appeared to be very unlevel.

The camp staff was very understanding as we had a personal emergency (trip to ER, emergency surgery, hospital stay) that ended up causing us to have to stay an additional day right at the beginning of the busy 4th of July holiday, but they graced us with an additional night's stay and we were very grateful! We camped at Thousand Trails - Hershey in a Motorhome.

In case anyone else has an emergency while in this area, Penn State Hershey Medical Center is OUTSTANDING! The ER is a trauma center, so it is quite busy, but they provide excellent care, in all areas of the hospital.

We have stayed here in the past. Of all the TT Parks that we have stayed in this one is by far the best. The tennis courts have been upgraded as has the pool and pool area. There is a new spa and volleyball area. The roads have been filled of potholes and the place in general is well maintained. The power (50 amp) is good and costs $3 per day extra. Good water pressure and there is sewer at most sites. No problem negotiating a 40 footer in this park. We will be back. We camped at Thousand Trails - Hershey in a Motorhome.

Thousand Trails rate. Geese, many geese. The lake is covered with filth from all the geese and they leave droppings all over the place, sport courts, pavilions, and parking lots. Otherwise, staff keeps the CG in good condition. Following the heavy rains some of the roads were plagued with deep runoff ditches, but the day following the rain the maintenance folks were out filling and smoothing things out. HDTV is pretty bad and no cable. Wi-Fi is available in the lodge and one pavilion; otherwise, it's not good. The lake is in the midst of the CG but there are no waterfront sites. The CG is quiet and peaceful and access is fairly easy. We would return when in the area. We camped at Thousand Trails - Hershey in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here for the Memorial Day weekend. The park is a membership park, part of the Thousand Trails system, thus there are a good proportion of permanent campers. They keep a number of "retail sites" for non-members. We stumbled upon this park after decided on a whim to camp for Memorial Day. They do this to drum up new members, so we were visited with a sales pitch a few times. Not a problem, the gentlemen was knowledgeable, and their "zone pass" seems to be a decent bargain. Location is good, pool and recreation facilities are good. However the Wi-Fi did not work in our Loop F. Several reviews mention excessive droppings from the many geese on the property. We didn't see any in our visit. We would return. We camped at Thousand Trails - Hershey in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful Park, staff very friendly. Only negative was the weather!!! It started thunder, lightning & POURING down rain as we were getting parked,the ranger came to unlock 50amp-we told him it could wait 'til am since it was raining so hard but he got out there and took care of it anyway! We were bummed that we weren't able to get good pictures because of weather - would definitely come back if we are in the area again. We camped at Thousand Trails - Hershey in a Motorhome.

We had a pull through site in the "H" section. It was gravel fairly level. Some roads are paved. It was 50 amp full hook up. No shade and on our patio side, we faced the south for full afternoon sun. No shade, could be very hot in the summer. Because of fairly steep hillside sun was below our awning most of the afternoon. No privacy between sites. Site was long enough for our rig, car and truck. Big rig friendly. Each restroom building has a small clean laundry. No cable TV. Over the air TV was fair, we could not always get the major networks. We did not use the WiFi. Our Verizon cell phone was fair to good. We did use our Wilson antenna and amplifier with our Droid phone and our signal was good to very good. Like most Thousand Trails they have a very active list of planned activities. There is a large outdoor pool (not opened at this time). There is a small lake for fishing and kayaking. Very active with families. Located about 5 miles from Hershey and about 8-10 miles from the major attractions in Hershey. Nearest large grocery is about 8 miles. There is a small grocery about 3 miles, but it was closed on a Saturday afternoon when we stopped. It is about 8-9 miles from the PA Turnpike. About 15 miles from I-81. It is a country setting. Summary: this is a nice, very active fairly large RV Park. It could use a little upgrading and more paved roads. The Canada goose population could be reduced, as there are way too many goose droppings in the park. They could better spend their money on improvements rather than radar guns for the rangers. The manager is very nice and all the staff very, very friendly. Bonus: the city of Hershey and all its attraction. The Amish country about 30 miles. Hollywood Casino about 20 miles. We camped at Thousand Trails - Hershey in a Fifth Wheel.

Loved this park, nice sized sites, GREAT water pressure. Close to everything, AT&T data and voice OK. Friendly staff. Still cleaning up and repairing after earlier tornado ripped thru this area. Need to get rid of the Geese, lots of potential e-coli because of them. We camped at Thousand Trails - Hershey in a Motorhome.

We were expecting a great park, but it exceeded our expectations. Our site was on the hill in H section, not the easiest to level, but well worth the effort. The layout is like three separate campgrounds: 50 amp, 30 amp, and W/E, and each area offers beautiful scenery. There were very few planned activities and we never saw very many people in the activity center, but with so much to do and see in the area, it was understandable. The pool was large, clean and in good condition, but there was no shade except for a few tables with umbrellas. Lots of geese, but they didn't bother people at their sites. The mowers were out almost every day, and all the sites were in good condition. This park would definitely rate a ten, except for the low voltage we experienced, once it got hot and people cranked up their A/Cs. We turned ours off rather than risk damage. We really enjoyed the farms and farmer's markets close by. We'll definitely come back. We camped at Thousand Trails - Hershey in a Motorhome.

As others have mentioned, this is one of the better 1000 Trails Preserves in the system. We THOROUGHLY enjoyed our stay here and are looking forward to coming back. Power and water were outstanding, sat TV available from some sites., some shaded sites and some in the sun. Nice folks and great activities including a luau and Polynesian dancers. Management is top notch and very friendly and accessible. Two nice pickle ball courts being used every day. One slight drawback is the number of Canadian Geese in the park, but not sure what can be done about them. We camped at Thousand Trails - Hershey in a Fifth Wheel.

Without a doubt, Hershey Thousand Trails is the finest preserve that we have visited in the system. Sites are well maintained and have plenty of space between. All facilities are in excellent condition. Would stay her again if in the area. Lots of places to visit in the area, especially the Hershey Chocolate factory and visitor center.

We stayed for three free nights with the requisite sales spiel. Nice campground, although we stayed out of season, but the pool seemed nice. Playground equipment was okay--kind of old, but in good repair--safe but boring. Mini-golf course needs to be upgraded. We won't be buying a TT membership, but would go back to the Thousand Trails-Hershey location. We camped at Thousand Trails - Hershey in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a members only park and we went on a free weekend. The park was very nice, our site was very large and pretty close to level. The bathrooms were very clean, although they could use some minor updating. Other campers were very friendly. The pool was closed due to the time of year we were there, but it was a pretty good size. The campground is in a small valley and is very quiet. We have been thinking about becoming members to maybe go here more often. We camped at Thousand Trails - Hershey in a Travel Trailer.
