Great time once again. Park is as good as always. Only issue is the really weak Wi-Fi,but then again, I'm supposed to be camping! We camped at Buttonwood Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Staff was very friendly! CG was neat, clean and landscaped very nicely. Sites are long and pretty spacious. Security gates are present through out all entrances/exits. The CG also rents canoes and kayaks. We happened to camp at the CG when a huge storm hit in which the Juniata River was flooding. The staff took precautions and moved trailers to higher ground. They watched the river all night and day to insure everyone's safety. As others have previously mentioned, the train does run all hours of the day and night. If you are in a site on the river side, you will definitely hear it. I do not know how loud it is up on the hill. I love trains so it did not bother me but for those who want peace and quiet, camping on the river side is not for you. This was our first time, site unseen, and we enjoyed our stay. Juniata Winery was present on Saturday for free wine tastings and sales. Very good! Everyone was very friendly including seasonal campers. We would return definitely!

We came based upon the reviews. The campground was great, you were escorted to your site and the hookups were well placed and easy to connect. The pull through sites on the lower level were wide, long and level and the river access was easy. It was a great campground, the staff was friendly and helpful. They had wonderful activities for campers with families, it is a child friendly campground. I would say it was one of the better run, friendly and well managed campgrounds that we have stayed in over the past several year. We will be back! We camped at Buttonwood Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We really enjoyed our time here spent over Memorial Day Weekend. So much that we booked again for next year. For being a busy weekend it didn't seem to be overcrowded. Bathrooms were up to date & cleaned regularly. They probably could use more bathhouses on site though. We stayed on one of the river sites. I don't think you can go wrong with any one of them. They were gravel and all appeared to be level. There were a lot of activities for all ages all weekend long. Turns out we never got to experience many of them since the kids were kept busy along the river. There is a rail line across the river with freight trains that run at all hours. They can be loud, but we actually liked watching them pass by. Also, there is beautiful countryside to explore. Highly recommend a drive thru Shade Mt. to the Mt. Pisgah Altar overlooking Snyder County about 10miles away. Overall we loved this CG. Almost forgot - very friendly staff and always available for help. It's clear these owners take pride in their CG. We camped at Buttonwood Campground in a Motorhome.

Great place overall. We were in a riverfront site and were able to see all kinds of wild life including a Bald Eagle. The bathrooms and showers were large for a campground and clean. There were a lot of trains running on the other side of the river and even though we were in a hybrid camper they never woke us up. The employees were friendly and very helpful. We were escorted to our site and told there was no rush to actually check in. We hope to be able to go back next year. We camped at Buttonwood Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Great back in or pull through sites for any size rig from a popup to a Motorhome. We like the upper side of the campground versus the river side. Lots to do if you have kids such as great playground, jumping pillow, peddle bikes, laser tag and a water wars game. Hay ride in the evening with popcorn and activities each morning for the family as well. Golf Cart rentals are available but we found that the campground is small enough that you don't need one. Nice camp store with everything you would need and than some. The customer service is top notch and that includes everyone that works at the campground. We love Buttonwood and find that where ever we camp we compare them to Buttonwood. We camped at Buttonwood Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Camped in a river site for a few nights in September right before the leaves started to change. This park was right out from Harrisburg and was fairly easy to find right off of Hwy 22. There was a mini golf setup that my grandson and I enjoyed together. All of the people were friendly, and we felt very welcome. We were there for the Juniata county fair and would stay here again.

We camped here after finding Buttonwood online and read the great reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The campground is actually what I would consider "cut in two" as the riverfront sites are across the road from the office and "hill" section. Riverfront area and sites are very level and lengthy. Some sites away from the river were flooded from the recent rains. The hill section was lovely, very nice landscaping and extra touches. If you have kids, stay on the hill section as there is new playground equipment and activities in this area. Choose the riverfront area if you enjoy the river but be aware there is no playground equipment and the danger of crossing the road is obviously hazardous for kids. Also note there are train tracks across the river so be prepared for loud trains throughout the day and night. We both agreed that we would return again as the price was right and overall the park is very beautiful and the staff very friendly. We camped at Buttonwood Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The positive reviews of Buttonwood Campground were well deserved, and we were not disappointed. The campground is very family oriented, and the activities for kids kept three children (6, 7, & 9) entertained all weekend. Although we had to buy wristbands for some activities, they easily paid for themselves. The mini-golf was very nice, as was the jump pillow. The kids especially enjoyed the pedal cars and laser tag. The party for New Year's Eve in July was great fun and included a wagon ride, DJ, games, and hotdogs. I also have to compliment the staff. They were wonderful. The restrooms were cleaned every two hours, starting at 6 a.m. This was great considering the mud resulting from rain the day we arrived. They did a wonderful job! Our only negative was the heavily used train tracks across the Juniata River. The trains came throughout the day and night at the rate of two or three an hour. This limited our sleeping when the air conditioner was not running. Aside from the train, it was a very nice campground, and we had a great weekend. We camped at Buttonwood Campground in a Tent Trailer.

We enjoyed our stay at Buttonwood. Though we don't have kids, it appeared to be very family friendly on our July 4th weekend stay. The staff made sure all the kids were having a good time on a hayride and water balloon activities. We kayaked the Juniata River right from the access at the campground. Our site was fairly spacious and level. BEWARE of the third party source for Wi-Fi at this park. They charged our account without giving us access and we could not get a live person to provide technical or billing answers. The campground staff deferred to the third party company.

A nice, well run campground, run very professionally by really friendly people. Down by the river where we stayed was shady and the sites were nicely sized. Restrooms and showers were professionally cleaned three times every day and were excellent! (Note to management: The cleaning crew did a great job). Lots of activities for the family with nightly entertainment. Seasonal campers are friendly. A very nice campground. The only issues were the dusty roads through the camp and one incessantly barking dog in the row behind us. Other than those issues everything else was very good. We'll be back again I'm sure.

Found about this CG via their booth at the York, PA RV show and upon further research and word of mouth, decided to book. Wow, what a find! This CG is an easy and scenic drive located in central PA. It is a two-tiered park with riverfront sites with much shade but less space between sites and a further trek to the pool, or the upper/newer sites with less shade but more space between sites and close proximity to the pool (we could play Jarts and ladder golf without fear of hitting camper or vehicle). Check-in was easy and courteous with super-friendly staff who escorted you to your site and you were allowed to set up and then check in later, nice. Sites were gravel, level with well located hook-ups, no sewer smells and good cable TV. Did not use the Wi-Fi. Roads were gravel but bike friendly and there were mulch paths to the many amenities (bounce pillow, horseshoes, volleyball, pedal carts, mini-golf, shuffleboard and nice pool). Campers can purchase a wrist band that gives unlimited use of the chargeable amenities. These paths also led to the clean and well stocked and ventilated bathhouse and laundry. The office/store was reasonably priced and clean. The grounds were well groomed and manicured with nice flowers and pet friendly with many pet waste disposals handy. Permanent sites are well maintained. Nearby amenities include a market with gas less than 1 mile from the CG that is open late and Sunday. The market has hand dipped ice cream (nicely priced too) and typical market and DIY sundries. The Port Royal Speedway is very close and the CG offers discount tickets and shuttle service. The engine roar can be heard from the CG on Saturday nights. Passing trains in the distance add to the ambiance of the CG. The mountains along the river and the farm-like setting also add to the ambiance of this CG. Did I mention the staff was super nice? Overall, this is a CG with owners who care and who are constantly making upgrades to this CG, making it a wonderful stay. My family can't wait for our next stay.

This campground has become the annual destination rally site for our club because of the unflagging courtesy and service of its staff and the ongoing upgrading of campsites, landscaping, and activities. It is a true destination park in a fully rural setting. We camped at Buttonwood Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We just returned from a three night stay at this park. We have been staying at this park for the past five years and continue to see big improvements. We stayed in site 312 which is a back-in site on the river. It was the first time we stayed in the lower campground but were not disappointed. The river sites are excellent and are able to accommodate large coaches. Despite a weekend filled with rain we still managed to have a good time. The owners were friendly as were the many workers. The park added cable for this season and we were able to pull in 60 plus channels. We look forward to returning to his park. We camped at Buttonwood Campground in a Travel Trailer.
