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 camped at Lake-in-Wood Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

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 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.

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. We camped at Lake-in-Wood Camping Resort in a Tent Trailer.

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.

This is definitely one of the more pristine campgrounds we have visited. It is very well maintained and quiet, except for the rock quarry as the previous reviewer mentioned. There is plenty to do here. The playgrounds have lots of unique apparatus to climb and swing on. There is a nice indoor/outdoor pool with sprays. We did not use this as the weather was too cold. The Gnome Cafe is open daily with a good selection. The sites are shaded and a good size with separation. Ours could have been a little larger, but it worked with our rig. There are only a few organized activities, but there is plenty to do otherwise. The store is well stocked. The bingo was rather pricey. This campsite is religious with a weekly church service, and most things in the area are closed on Sundays. It's Amish country. We also enjoyed a trolley ride around the campground on Sat. night. The negative is that there are one way roads all over the place, but if you are driving around in your golf cart, you are not aware of the one ways until it's too late. There are no DO NOT ENTER signs. I did not like the tone of voice of the trolley driver when he informed me I was going the wrong way. The pond was well stocked with fish, and the bathrooms were clean. We do plan on returning. We camped at Lake-in-Wood Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Just visited Lake In Wood CG in Narvon, PA after reading how highly rated it is. There is a lake with fishing, canoes, various playgrounds, mini golf, and well landscaped areas. While the grounds are beautiful and rather picturesque compared to others we've visited, we found the staff to be rather standoffish and bordering on rude. While checking in, personnel was not welcoming or even friendly. The woman standing next to me wanted to pick an item up from someone who was camping there. She was told she had to pay $6. She then said she would just call the person and ask her to meet her at the gate to get the item. The man behind the counter berated her, telling her she was not allowed to do that and that she HAD to pay the fee. It was uncomfortable to hear this heated exchange. His tone was so hostile, you'd think the woman had stolen something. As I stepped up to register, I was treated indifferently as a factory worker would treat a product on an assembly line. Not even so much as a 'Hello', or 'Thank you'. The following day, we visited the office to get some ice cream. The man behind the counter that served my husband his cone was very condescending to the point that I wanted to say something. The young lady standing next to him was clearly embarrassed by his attitude and less than stellar treatment of a paying customer. She was the only employee who smiled and was courteous the few times we had to go into the office/store. It appeared to me the majority of the older employees were not happy to be there and we felt as though we were inconveniencing them with our business. Given the popularity of this CG and the fact that it stays booked solid through Labor Day weekend, I can't help but wonder if others have experienced the same lackluster treatment. I'd love to return as we enjoyed the amenities, but we're hesitant to spend our money (and it's definitely not cheap) where we don't feel welcome and our presence is an inconvenience to the staff. We camped at Lake-in-Wood Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Very nice destination park. Lots to do on-site, though there are enough rules to take the fun out of many activities. Pool was too cold to enjoy, and spa was not hot enough. We had a premium site that was very private. I don't see how the four gold sites are worth more as they are not near as private. Had some issues getting wi-fi to work.  Voltage was good, and cable TV worked well. Sewage connection was a little high. Had to use several blocks to level camper. Note that this park is in the vicinity of a rock quarry. We could easily hear the machines working when they fired up early Monday morning. Apparently they don't run on weekends. Overall, quite pleased with our visit and we would definitely stay here again.  We camped at Lake-in-Wood Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

This was our 2nd time at this campground. First the negatives; there was a report of bad weather so we called the campground to see if we could get a credit for our 1st day of a 3 night stay. The receptionist told me over the phone that we couldn't as we had paid the bill in full. We decided to brave the storm and head up anyway. When we arrived the receptionist told me of my outstanding balance, so we were lied to when we called. Second, we had reserved a playhouse for the kids. When we checked in we were told that there wasn't one available even though it was part of our reservation. Other than those things, we had a wonderful time at the campground. All the amenities were great, everything was clean. The activities were fun and there are plenty of fish in the lake. Our site was perfect and we already booked our end of season trip back there.

This is a destination park for families and children. Lots for them to do. If looking for a camping spot to tour the countryside and not needing amenities there are better choices. Paved site was very unlevel and small, needed 5 to six inches of blocks to level RV and that puts the door step up to high. No trash pickup, long walk to trash and bath house. Not acceptable for the price of the sites. Would not choose this campground again. We camped at Lake-in-Wood Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed at Lake in Wood this past weekend and had a wonderful time. Even after arriving and finding another camper already unhitched at our campsite. We just unhitched at another site, which worked out better for us since we only had one real neighbor on the backside of the camper. I am not exactly sure if it was the campground itself we liked so much or just the fact we finally had a chance to get away and go camping. Lake in Wood is definitely geared towards families and keeping everyone busy without having to leave the campground. Whether you decide to go to the pool, play at one of the parks, a round of miniature golf, or hang by the lake to fish, or take one of the paddle boats out, there is something for everyone. Yes, there are rules, and the owners and staff make sure everyone follows the rules. As a guest I did not find it to be a bother or even feel like big brother was watching us all the time. I have been to several campgrounds where they have a list of rules, but it only applies to the transits, and the employees and seasonals are exempt. Here everyone is treated equally. The speed limit was followed whether traveling in a vehicle or on a golf cart as well. So many times I have seen people speeding through campgrounds. We were back by bathhouse 3 up on one of the turn off roads and were very happy with our site. There are some sites that are very close together throughout the park, and that would be great if you are camping with other parties. Otherwise it may be an uncomfortable weekend being so close. I personally would not suggest staying (or paying the extra price) around the Brotherhood Circle if you have a travel trailer longer than 24ft or a 5th wheel as the sites are small, and you basically have to park in the street to hitch and unhitch. Not to mention you have to pull into the grass just to make the turn radius needed when leaving. Fingers crossed the grass is not saturated. The sites are concrete and blacktop in this area, but again, overall small and close together. The park is right there and also a big field. I would like to see Lake in Wood take some of the field and pave and expand the road, so others who are leaving can pass by when someone is hitching/unhitching and those leaving these sites are not turning into the field. The Gold sites near the big open field above the lake are also small and again require you to block the road to hitch/unhitch. I personally do not see the value in paying the extra cost for these sites. If you want blacktop and a concrete site, there are others throughout the campground that were nicer and offered more space. The roads throughout the park are fairly narrow, and it can be a challenge when people are walking along whether you are just driving around or bringing in (or leaving) with a camper. There is really no way to pull off when another vehicle is coming at you (for the areas that are two way); generally they are pulling into other sites so you can pass by. On the website it mentions the pools are heated. I am not sure if they are only heated at certain times of the year or if the heater was broken. The board said the temperature of the covered pool and children’s area was 76 degrees. It was a cold 76 degrees. The pool by the swim up bar was even colder. Activities are on channel 2, but the information goes by so quickly that you do not always have a chance to read it. We wanted to know what time the trolley left at, and it was the last item on the screen. As soon as it was on the screen, it disappeared. We watched the slide show four times. They also had information about activities and events that happened in May and nothing for June or even showing upcoming events for July. I would like to see them slow down the fade in/out so it we can read it instead of having to go up to the office for the information since they do not want to hand out an activities sheet. I do not feel that the information above should deter you from staying at Lake in Wood, but help you make more of an informative choice when booking your site and what to expect. Like any campground, there are things that some people like, and things other people do not like. Overall it is a nice campground, and you should stay there at least once.

This was a very nice campground. Great overall experience from check-in to check-out. All sites were well maintained, and for being hilly all sites looked to be level. We opted for a premo site, but probably didn't need to as I noticed all of the sites were in great shape. There a lot of seasonals here, but they were very friendly and welcoming. The campground has a lot of activities, and plenty to offer all ages. Great fishing, and hiking trails too. Wi-Fi was very slow, but not a big deal since we were so busy around the park. We will be back again this summer. One of our favorite campgrounds to date. Highly recommend bringing a bike although they do have golf carts to rent. Overall campground price was high, but we got what we paid for. We camped at Lake-in-Wood Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Park is excellent. Very large and spread out over many acres amongst trees. However the pull through sites are out in the open allowing you satellite access. Sites are mostly gravel with the pull through sites being paved with a concrete pad. Sites are level and well spaced. Lots of seasonals in the park and it can be very busy on the weekends. The big thing is to drive golf carts around as most seasonals have them and others can rent them from the park. Wi-Fi was free but very slow. Park has lots of rules but we did not find it an issue. Staff was friendly and helpful. There is a rock quarry nearby so during the day you may hear some of the machinery going but, to us, was not annoying. Park is near the sights for Amish Country and an hours drive into Philadelphia. We camped at Lake-in-Wood Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Wow! This campground is now one of our top 3 favorites. I can't say enough about this place. The store has everything you need. The sites are clean and level. There are many planned activities for the kiddies and families. We were there in the late fall and the indoor pool was great. Can't wait to visit in the summer. The campground is close to all things Amish if that is what you like. We will definitely be back. The campground is beautiful! One thing to mention is if you plot the address into GPS you may find yourself climbing a huge hill that you may or may not be able to manage..please plan your route accordingly.

This campground resort is beautiful. We rented one of their unique rentals, the Little Red Barn. The rental was clean and spacious. The grounds are so clean and well maintained. The activities are endless, from the cool kids pool and swim up slushy bar to the miniature golf and boat rentals. We checked in during the busiest part of the day and were escorted right to our rental. The staff was professional and friendly. The Gnome cafe offered a great variety of food at reasonable prices if you don't want to cook. I am currently trying to make reservations here for the end of October to take our new RV.
