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. We camped at Ferryboat Campsites in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Not much to do in the area but you are along the Susquehanna River. Unfortunately the water level was too low, so the ferry was closed.

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. We camped at Ferryboat Campsites in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Ferryboat Campsites in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Nothing to do in the area. The activities in the campground had not started for the season

We had a large, level, grassy site. The showers were clean with lots of hot water. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Ferryboat Campsites in a Tent.

The view of the Susquehanna River is beautiful. The sites are level, adequate size, 30 amps, FHU and gravel/grassy. The road into the camp is gravel and provides easy in and out to the highway. No road noise. No pool. The price reflects Passport America. Many permanent campers and a large selection of daily sites. Office doubles as small store. We will camp here again.

We stopped at this campground in our RV for one night. It has a very nice setting on the Susquehanna River. It is a very old campground and facilities are in need of upgrades. Restrooms and showers are old and not in good shape. While we did not use it, lady at desk told us that internet service was spotty. Cable TV service worked fine. Sites for transient campers are small and close together. This park has a lot of seasonal campers and it appears that they cater mostly to them. We used PA discount-without it, would not have been happy with the price for the quality of the park. Would not stay here again. We camped at Ferryboat Campsites in a Motorhome.

The campground has a nice location on the river. The sites themselves are not that great but mine was level and I had a view of the river. I was only traveling though and only was looking for a place to spend the night. The fee was high for just a quick overnight stop. I think this might be nice if you wanted to spend a few days. I still think it is pricey. I have camped all over out west and never paid anywhere near this much. The east coast is high priced for what you get. We camped at Ferryboat Campsites in a Motorhome.

I came here with my 9 and 12 year old. When we arrived, the staff asked if I knew my site number? They did look it up for me and sent me down the road. Luckily, a seasonal helped me find the spot. There was no picnic table (requested one, never delivered). The power went out repeatedly during our stay. The office accepted the power outage as normal. I would not return to this campground again.

Great campground! Spacious, waterfront sites with concrete pads and lots of foliage. Be careful: my GPS brought me in from the East and assumed that the ferry would be a good match for my motorhome. The Ferry holds about two cars and wasn't compatible, but the drive around was only about 45 minutes. We sat on the banks of the river every evening and watched bird, animal and boat activity. We camped here during the week and it was quiet and well-spaced but I've heard it's jam-packed on weekends. The $23 rate is Passport America and is only available on weekdays; on top of the rate is a $4 per day energy surcharge. Credit cards are not accepted nor are checks for PA; however the staff found ways to say "yes" to resolve shortfalls. We will definitely stay here again.

Nice enough during the week, but the weekends are bumper to bumper. Very tight! Many tents. WiFi was free and worked well. Although it was ok for a couple of days, probably would look elsewhere if coming this way in the future. We camped at Ferryboat Campsites in a Motorhome.

We stayed there during the fall foliage. The staff were nice and helpful. I scouted out the first site they recommended and it was too tight/small for our longer 5th wheel so we ended up in the new area which was was like parking in a football field (no mature trees). The sites were grass and we had some difficulty getting traction the day we left due to an overnight rain. One of the highlights of staying there was the Millersburg Ferry that made trips across and back the river every hour or so. Prices were modest, but well worth it to see the foliage from the middle of the river. Do not be concerned about the apparent initial look of the Ferry itself...it is near new and the water is only 3 feet or so deep. The main part of this campground is older, but does not show the severe wear like some. Many of the sites in this area are occupied by permanent campers/rigs which does have the advantage of fewer people in the campground on weekdays. The sites in this part of the campground are tight and parking larger rigs/5th wheels there will have to be planned with a walk through just to make sure. The area in this part of Pennsylvania/Perry County is beautiful and we enjoyed driving the back roads. We would return to this campground, but there are others in Perry County with 20 miles of this one that would be our first choices. We camped at Ferryboat Campsites in a Fifth Wheel.

Had great sites with a view of the river but were not river view lots. Nice level sites. Internet is very fast. Watching the ferry pick up people is very interesting. Everyone is very friendly. Would camp here again. We camped at Ferryboat Campsites in a Travel Trailer.

A group of us got two sites side-by-side for a 4-day stay - two campers and three tents. The folks in the office were very accommodating about the extra people that came to stay on our sites - overall, very nice people to deal with. The proximity of sites to the river is good (but keep in mind as others have noted - only seasonals get 'waterfront' camping). River access is excellent, from three points in the campground. The bathrooms were clean but antiquated. The kids with us had a blast despite the lack of a pool. Overall, I agree with others here that it's an average campground in an above-average location. The views of the river and surrounding terrain are excellent. We would consider returning, all agreed. We camped at Ferryboat Campsites in a Motorhome.

I suspect that regional ratings differ greatly. A 9 rating to me would include at least neat level gravel sites and maybe concrete or blacktop pads. The sites where we were are grass and squished mud under the weight of our tires. We were able to level. 50 amp service was not available. WiFi has been installed but the repeater in our area was not working. I would return, but without the delusion that the campground is anything more than average. We stayed in a motor home.

Very nice park along the river with a ferry crossing inside the park. The park has a lot of seasonal campers they have all the river sites the only sites they don't have are the club sites that is where we stayed. The staff and people who live in the park are very nice. Main road in park is paved loops are gravel sites are grass. We camped at Ferryboat Campsites in a Fifth Wheel.
