One of the worst campgrounds we have ever been too. Travel with 3 other campers. Made reservations and were told we would only fit in these few sites. When we first arrived it took almost an hour for us to check in. Each of our sites was so narrow we could not put out our awning. As we were walking around, we noticed much larger sites were empty all weekend. The smell from the sewage was so overwhelming, many times you could not go out side. I have to wonder if the Health Department shouldn't be involved.
We have all the discount cards and were told they didn't take them. Also when we arrived, we were told how to log on to the internet. When it didn't work, we were then told they didn't have internet in our area. We had camped at here a few years back and it was run so much better. I see here that there are new owner. That explains a lot. Avoid this campground at all costs. - shell5

We did not have a good experience at this campground. We stayed at site 247. One positive was that the site was level but very small. Be aware that some sites share utilities from another site. For example site 246's water and electric was on our post so they had to run it across to their site.
Lots of seasonal people here. The seasonal campers behind us left their dogs out all weekend (they barked constantly) and threw the dogs' waste into the drainage ditch between our sites. They also walked through our site to get to their site. Very rude.
We had weak water pressure the morning we were leaving. We called the office and they said they would send someone over but no one came by the time we left.
They also double booked our site, but fortunately well in advance they recognized their error and moved us to another site months before our arrival but we moved from a water view site to a non-water view site. So not quite the same thing.
Occasional sewer smells in the campground. We did see employees with a snake in one of the sewer man holes so apparently there was an issue.
The hayride trailer broke one of its wheels while we were on it. Fortunately no one got hurt. The actual rim separated from the axle.
I received a response from the campground after complaining about the above items. New owners have taken over the campground on August 28th and apologized for the issues we had during our stay. They recognize that there is a lot of items they need to address including the shared utilities, which they plan on updating soon. They also plan to address the rules of the campground including cutting through people’s campsites. They were not aware of the dog issue in the site behind us but plan to investigate. This campground has a lot of potential and hopefully the new owners can make it what it should be. - Timmy2

The first night was Passport America and then AARP for the next two nights. The site was level and big rig friendly. There were many seasonals but still sufficient sites available. The ferry stopped at the campground to travel to the other side of the lake. There was only one grocery store 10 miles away with no other shopping. Nothing to do in the area but a relaxing campground. Did not use the laundry facilities. No dog park but able to walk dog in campground. Easy to ride bicycle in campground. - Fulltimersrv

I kept asking if our 35' fifth wheel would fit; the man avoided answering. I would have really liked it if he told us that the campground was RIGHT before the 13' 6" bridge. We were at a standstill staring at the bridge when we noticed the campground sign. We managed to fit, but it was not easy. The campground road is uneven, dirt/gravel, narrow with low branches and wires strung at a nail biting 13' 6". The three riverfront sites that we had to choose from were not delineated; it took us a while to figure out what was a spot. There were water spigots here and there. There were more wires strung across the 'sites' that were definitely lower than 13'; they were attached to boxes and outlets nailed to trees providing 15 amp electricity. We backed into the only one we could maneuver into as far back without hitting the wires. Luckily we did not stick out into road, but leveling was the most difficult we have ever had to do. Even just walking around was tricky. We ran an extension cord about 50' to get our electricity and about 30' water hose to get water. Full hookups means that you can flag a guy down to pump out your tanks. In general the place was unkempt and littered. Being on the river was nice and peaceful (except for the train that is about as close as the river). They provided a fire ring and picnic bench; it was way too buggy for us. There were lots of birds; we got a great view of a woodpecker who landed on our window. - MichelleKry

This is an older campground and as the name says a fishing camp located right on the river. The store sells bait, tackle and rents boats, canoes and kayaks and will provide transportation for float trips. The campsites obviously get flooded and the electric, water and cable are raised above flood stage. The sewer system is individual holding tanks at the sites which are pumped daily on weekdays and there is a dump station. Electric is 15 amp. The cable TV had a good variety of channels and worked well. Local over the air channels were limited to one network and two other channels with poor reception. Verizon has a strong 3G signal. The roads are shale and dirt. Some sites have concrete pads and a picnic table. There is one old cinder block building with toilets and showers and some portapotties. - trailertraveler

A small compact campground in the PA state park system. Suprisingly, this state park had city water service at their trailer sites. I later found out that this was due to the state acquiring this former private campground. Sites were very level and roomy. Due to the time of the visit, they were not full and the neighbors were nearby but not in your "back yard". Campground Hosts were great, helping out where needed and providing information about the park. Showers/Bathrooms were clean although the showers were a little small. The park had many, many programs and demonstrations that all were welcome to attend at no cost. The hiking trails were great with both challenging trails and easy strolls. Very good park in the PA system. - Mike Opteris

Nice, quiet state park, but not many activities. Easy to access, most sites are level, some are not shaded. Some are close together. Clean restroom and shower. Swimming pool and waterpark is one of the best in any state park. Cost $4 for adults but definitely worth it on hot summer days. Pool is in the park about a mile away. We would camp here again. - RSR

We love camping at state parks, but this campground was a disappointment. The road was rough and uneven, the gravel campsites were small, the bathhouse was old & dirty, and there was nothing for the kids to do. The hill was too steep and rough for bike riding, there was no flat area to play ball, and there was no playground. The hiking trail was covered in poison ivy. The only positive aspect was that we had electric and water hookup, and that park (other than the campground) was beautiful. There is a very large pool with water slides as well as a spray area for little kids. If you stay two nights at the campground, you get one-day free passes to the pool, which is normally $5.00 per person. The pool is clean, well-staffed, and has a concession area. There is a playground outside the pool area, as well as lots of picnic tables and grill. The pool is one-mile from the campground, though, so it is not something you can just walk to. Too bad the campground wasn't closer to the beautiful pool and lake, where you can rent boats and fish. - amm8589

Clean park and friendly staff. Not staffed all the time. Short on amenities and small, but overall it is nice. Firewood is readily available for $5 a wheel barrel full. - Donulus

Love this RV park. We had our campsite right on Penn's Creek. It was nice. Shade, grass and blue stones. No dust. No much going on, but if you don't want to be bothered and just relax, this is the right campground. - Heidemarie

Small, neat campground but with only one pull through. Big rigs can get into backin sites. There doesn't seem to be anyone on site so we pulled into the pull-through in our 45' coach. They make it easy to fill out the registration form and leave the payment. Wi-Fi didn't work after a storm came through. We were told that it is busy on weekends and since you can't speak to anyone, you don't know if you have a reservation. Could be a problem. Would stay here again. - Team Asphalt

Another good year of multiple visits at Buttonwood. Once again, staff was very helpful, friendly, and excellent in all aspects. Campground was very clean and well taken care of, especially the showers/restrooms. Only complaint again, is the poor wifi reception (big deal, right?). Other than that we're looking forward to next year. Hopefully, the prices don't increase too much because this is a great place! - Mike Opteris

Great campground. We come here often. Only concern is the aging bathrooms in the upper section. There is only one in this area. It never was great. Now compared to similar campgrounds it inadequate. Wish the would refurbish this and build a second one. Only two showers on the men's side does not cut it on a busy weekend. - Camper 1972

Very nice CG in a quiet rural area. There are lots of trees and a slow moving river at the back. The wifi was excellent. We were almost the only ones there and were the only transient--the CG was closing the next weekend. A great place. - hudsonguy

We stayed in a lovely spot right beside the creek. This is a nice park at a good rate. - almar4evr

Great campground. We visited during a busy Labor Day Weekend. Campground was very quiet. Camped with 4 others and site were large and spacious. Owners and staff were very nice and helpful. We will return - Rick and Cathy

Way back we used to be seasonal Campers there and last year we came back for a week. There were some great improvements made. The new owner tries very hard to bring it back how it was a few years ago. It's clean and a lot of fun, because they have some great weekend entertainment.
Knoebels is not far and I also like the state park right across the street. Great for riding a bicycle. - Heidemarie

Wi-Fi worked good. The site I was on had a concrete pad. Water, sewer, and electric all worked as they should. The location for this campground is along the Susquehanna River and next to a state park. Also a great little ice cream shop next door. I'd stay here again. - maineman

Not a bad campground, with lots of activities and seasonal campers who were all very friendly. The owner just bought the campground in June, and was very friendly and seemed to be doing a fair job of keeping the place neat and clean. Electric and water was fine, but sewer hook-up as well as the dump station were above grade, and, well, water doesn't roll up hill. But, my main complaint is a biggie and a deal breaker for me, the showers were terrible! They were clean, but you had to pay for them, and if you get warm water, it is only just warm, never hot, and if someone else is using the shower closer to the water heater you will get freezing cold water. Other then that it was a nice stay. - Cyclonic
