This is a top campground. All roads are paved, sites are very nice, many sites have concrete pads. Pools are inside and out (continuous) two smaller pools/spray for little ones. Very nice snack bar/cafe. Store is very nice with ice cream parlor.

Has a very nice lake (about 6-8 acres) with OK fishing for the kids.

This place is very well kept and top notch, no nonsense. Alcohol not "allowed" but as long as you keep on site and quiet, no problem.

No HOBOs here, just top of the line seasonals and small trailer houses.

We go here at least twice to three times per year. We camped at Lake-in-Wood Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Easy to buy good firewood roadside as well as fruits and vegetables from local Mennonites. Weavers is the place for groceries, but there is a good orchard nearby that has a very good store, I think it is Stoufers.

We have stayed at this campground multiple times. Each season, they make improvements to the park. The huge pool complex was jam packed this weekend. However, there were no rude people. Kids waited in line nicely for the diving platform, and no kids were running around unsupervisedd I also noticed that parents were actually watching their children or even playing with their children rather than being involved in themselves. This was a positive thing for me to see. The seasonal campsites are immaculate as are the grounds. We were extremely satisfied with our campsite on the hill. Staff is always friendly. We enjoyed the Gnome Cafe next to the pool for some snacks as well. If your campsite is up on the hill, I do recommend spending the extra money to rent a golf cart and I would put it on hold when you reserve your spot. It is a long walk down to the pool and activities. There were no loud noises, no speeding golf carts and no drunk adults. A very pleasant location to spend a weekend. This is one of the most peaceful and serene campgrounds we have had the pleasure of visiting. We camped at Lake-in-Wood Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This resort is wonderful! We stayed at the red carpet sites. The camp store is really big and has everything you need. The restrooms were immaculate. They have a large pond where you can paddle boat and fish. The grounds at this RV Resort are beautiful and well taken care of. We camped at Lake-in-Wood Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

We have visited this park several times but this is the first time we were able to get in the pool and really spend time outdoors. The only negative I have is the Quarry noise from next door on Friday. Most of the staff we encountered were very friendly, we did encounter one woman who was too strict in the rules and not especially happy. This whole campground is in pristine condition. No trash lying around, n0 golf carts speeding around. Not allowing lights on golf carts eliminates noise at night, so it is very peaceful. The entire pool complex is beautiful and, even with a full campground on Saturday, the pool was not especially crowded as it is quite large. There is a cafe you can access from the pool as well and enjoy your meal outside. I have truly never seen a pool like this. Both the playground and the pool were extremely therapeutic for my son with autism. A pool with a waterfall the kids can hang out under? That was really cool. There is a lake for fishing and many trails for hiking. There really are not many planned activities for the kids, but there is so much to do otherwise. We were a bit disappointed in our site (171). Although it is a "premium" site, it is long and narrow with the front part going downhill. We worked it out though. The weather cooperated and we were able to relax this weekend. We have already made reservations to return twice next year, one of those times in a specialty rental. These are also kept in tiptop condition as well as all the seasonals. We camped at Lake-in-Wood Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Wonderful resort campground. Replied quickly via email and was able to make reservations without picking up the phone. Staff was very friendly. I do highly recommend getting a golf cart, dependent on site. The campground is very spread out. Restrooms, showers and laundry were very clean. We are looking forward to returning! Lots of fun and things to keep kids busy. We camped at Lake-in-Wood Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This campground was awesome! I can't say enough great things about it. Very clean, immaculately maintained, amazing staff with the best attitudes. This place is beautiful. Staff was so understanding and eager to assist us after we ran into terrible traffic and were late for check in, which required them to stay 30 minutes past close. They were still so welcoming and took time to escort us to our site and see that we were hooked up and ready to go. We didn't use the showers, so we can't speak on that. The laundry was clean and relatively cheap ($1.75 to wash) compared to other campgrounds we've camped. Our site was a "red carpet" site. Site was level, spacious, hookups were great, Internet was strong. The amenities of this place were amazing. Small putt putt, shuffle board, volley ball, organized activities, on site cafe, walking trail, lake (no fishing license required), playgrounds, golf cart rentals etc. This is truly one of those campgrounds that is so enjoyable, you hate to leave. Very few places get it all right, but this was one of them. We will definitely be staying again! We camped at Lake-in-Wood Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is our favorite local campground. Friendly staff. Indoor/outdoor pool. Paved roads. Restaurant. Although there is alot of seasonals here, it is a big campground so there are still alot of daily campers. The campground is gated so you can feel safe. Our site could be more level.

BTW, there is a quarry nearby which you can hear at night but it never bothers us. We camped at Lake-in-Wood Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Went to Lake-in-Wood on Columbus Day weekend with my wife and two kids. Positives: paved roads, beautiful landscaping, numerous activities, great site (121...nice one!), modern and clean bathrooms, fun playground, indoor pool and spa, great places to walk within and just outside of the campground, good staff. Best of all it was Christmas Weekend. They REALLY went all out. Caroling, outdoor decorations, the hall was super decked out for Christmas, many campers went all out and decorated sites, hay and/or trolly rides around the campground, character visits including the big guy, gifts for the kids, home made cookies/punch. Just a really great job – can't say enough about it. Negatives: Not many...really. To nitpick – they charged us $1 to use the shuffleboard equipment. Cannot figure out for the life of me why that would be – I had to go back to the camper to get a buck. Firewood they sold was too new/wet to burn well. Internet was very weak during peak times – could not get signed on. Strengthened after many people left on Sunday. Do watch the kids as some drivers go too fast on the roads. Anyway we had a terrific weekend and are making plans to go back again next year on the same weekend. Great way to end the season! Definitely recommended.

We had made our reservations in February, as we would be meeting other family members coming from Connecticut. Even in February, it took several calls to get our sites together. Sites had to be paid in full at time of registration. Upon arriving, we encounter an access gate about 1/2 way into the parking lot, with cars parked on each side. A sign telling you not to block the gate while registering. So we pulled to the side. With our 35 ft trailer and Crew cab truck, this blocked several cars. If your going to be out after 9 PM, they will issue you an access card, otherwise, you just show your registration paperwork and someone in the office will open the gate for you. They do offer "Late arrival Hookups" on each side of the gate, yet I'm not sure how you would get on the other side of the gate after hours if no one is in the office? While this campground does offer a Good Sam discount, I was informed they only honor it Sunday - Thursday as they are not a Good Sam Park. Pulling around to our site, we passed a trash dumpster with a sign, "Kitchen Trash Only - Your On Camera". We had a back-in site in the woods and it took several attempts to get in our spot due to large rocks that line the streets. No on-site trash pick up. Looked for recycling bins, and only found two the size of regular trash cans. For a campground of 350+ sites, you would expect better recycling options. The campground offers several activities, but no weekend timeline was provided with check in. I can't comment on the restrooms as we did not use them. They offer cable TV, but when I scanned channels, several of them came in so snowy, it was like using the old fashion rabbit ears. My sisters camping on a site near by experienced the same condition. If arriving from the PA turnpike, fuel up after you exit. There are no gas stations along the route leading into the campground. Campground is big, so plenty of golf carts cruising around. On my last day, I found out that free coffee and newspaper are offered each morning in the Cafe..Little late... We camped at Lake-in-Wood Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice park and well-maintained. Bath houses were spotless and lawns were kept manicured. This is a great park for families with kids. Lots to do, activities, mini golf, playground, pool and a lake to fish, etc. If you're there to visit the area be aware that everything is about a 30 minute drive away from the campground at a minimum. As others have stated the initial entry into the campground is horrendous. We arrived in a 40' motor home with a toad and pretty much blocked everything while I hurried to check us in to get through the gate! Bad set up. Our site was long and wide enough, we did hear the quarry somewhat during the week and the speedway over the weekend, but nothing real noticeable. We camped here to visit with relatives and that would be the only reason we return; just not our cup of tea. We camped at Lake-in-Wood Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

We camped in a travel trailer and stayed on G2 site July 4th weekend. Just an amazing view. It does get the afternoon sun. Resort is beautiful and well maintained. We participated in the annual golf cart parade and it was overwhelming to see just how many people came out to participate in the event. We are definitely going back next year and we would highly recommend to other friends. The only negative is the cable TV is a little fuzzy, but not enough to take a 10 rating away from the campground. Also, Sprint service was not good, but that wasn't the resort issues.

Nightly rate reflects holiday weekend rate. Campground staff and seasonal campers very friendly and welcoming. Offered escorts to your site as this is a large campground. Sites in our section were large with lots of foliage/distance in between. As others have stated, lots of one way roads with minimal signage as well as no markings on campground map. We did heart the quarry early Saturday morning. Plenty of activities for everyone. Bathhouses were spotless and up to date. Didn't seem to be heat in ours. Showers needed more hooks for personal items. Only one hook in shower I used. Golf carts everywhere, although they are electric. Will be returning and would recommend.

Very nice park, spacious sites. Would have given it a 10 but since we stayed after Labor Day, the pool & restaurant were not open except limited hours on weekends (which the park is still busy during). Very quite during the weekdays. Did hear the rock quarry in the early morning as mentioned by others but wasn't a big deal. We camped at Lake-in-Wood Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
