Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $35.00
This campground is geared towards family camping with lots of kid activities. Generally speaking, it's a decent park with decent amenities. However, I'm not impressed with much of their upkeep. For example, we were there a year ago and same things needing attention back then were still needing attention. i.e., the high window (for motorhomes) main gate touchpad was still broken; the street light by our site was still broken; their staff golf carts were junkers with one broke down by our site. The sewer connection is inside a square concrete block and recessed too low for our hose elbow to reach to pipe. Roads are rough and dusty gravel with some really large stones (3") in the mix. Many sites on the east side (pull thrus) could be more level. I saw quite a few motorhomes with their front wheels well off the ground. Also, there is no shade on the east side. West side has some shaded sites but probably more congested and smaller back-in sites.
All things considered the park is not too bad but I would be more impressed if they reinvested in their infrastructure and equipment.
Good things - decent restaurant; ice cream parlor; two pools; State Park with hike/bike trails across the street; decent camp store; fair rate; good check-in process. We camped at Twin Grove Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.
If you want a resort campground with lots of activities, golf carts and Sat night bands, this is for you. I'd have just as soon been in a trailer park. But, we needed a full hook-up site for our two week stay and they are few and far between in this area. I thought the cost was excessive especially for a site that slopped down both sideways and front to back. Many motor homes had their front wheel off the ground. Most other site areas are level, but the Resort East Pull Thrus are not even close. The utilities worked well and even the wifi was usefull in the early AM. Busy on weekends. Watch for small blue signs between I-81 and campground on PA 443. the entrance is easy to miss. We camped at Twin Grove Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a little tough for me to rate. I am going to give it a 3 because it is just two of us traveling in a motor home. The rate of $85 is for a Wednesday and Thursday with good Sam discount, The park is well laid out. quite no road noise, all gravel roads and sites, our site S 68 is level enough for us, all utilities are within range, we get our satellite well and we get our AT&T cell Internet well. I is very long perhaps 80 + feet. and that is a good thing too! Although there is plenty of space between neighbors,our space and many other sites especially on the pull thru's is useless because it is all banking, slope side, our table is on the gravel and also the fire pit behind the RV, when we sit out we have to go behind the RV and the car and sit on the driveway,the views are nice. this is definitely NOT a good site if you have kids and want to utilize the out doors and your awnings
There wifi is the pits! slow, slow, we use our air card. With all of this aside many would give the park a 4 or 5 because if you do have kids and do get a good spacious and level site there is tons to do here, let me start, gated and secure,nice store and check in building two pools with slides, in house restaurant and even a bar with full liquor licence, huge fenced in dog runs or parks one for large and one for smaller dogs, ! a full sized fenced in basket ball court, a one of a kind merry go round in a beautiful Amish built octagon building a ferrous wheel, blow up air chutes, video arcade building, mini golf, a real nice cream shop, arts and craft rooms for the kids and even a small exercise room, All of this on the camp ground property. We camped at Twin Grove Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.
We really like this park. It has a little bit of everything and it's quite new and well maintained. They appear to be expanding a quite large section of the park. There were bulldozer's clearing the land. There's a small amusement park right next to the campground is a nice touch. The restaurant/bar onsite is really nice too. We haven't seen much commentary of the dog park(s)...they're huge! This would be the perfect park for our family if it had a bike park. Our boys (8 & 5) would love it!

Very nice campground 5 miles off I-81 with lots of amenities for the family, including an on site restaurant, two pools, a fenced doggy park and more. All gravel sites. Some sites aren't that level and I saw some large coaches with boards under their wheels. Not very busy during the week, but full on weekends. Their WiFi was weak in our site and Verizon WiFi signal was fair. Laundry/bathhouse was very nice and clean. The rate shown is with tax and is great for all that you get. We would stay here again when in the area. We camped at Twin Grove Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Good park for families with children - many activities close by camp areas. Helpful staff who pleasantly refunded the 2nd night we were required to pay upfront even though we were only planning for one night. We camped at Twin Grove Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate represents Good Sam discount. Staff friendly and helpful. Big store with restaurant. Ice cream parlor,arcade with prizes, rides, great pool, large fenced dog park. Sites are gravel,some leveling may be needed. Plenty of pull-through sites. Stayed on West side near small stream. Best sites I liked wereQ44,Q42,P20,F54,F40,F20. If tenting F24,F42,F34. Plenty of things for the family. Wife wants to return with the grand kids. Swatara State Park very close. Definitely on the return list. We camped at Twin Grove Resort and Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Nice park. A very busy park and reservations should be made in advance, especially during the summer months. This is a "family" park with lots to do for the kids. Clean and neat and big sites for larger rigs. We camped at Twin Grove Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.
Very nice clean campground. Stayed in site Q54, with friends (1 travel trailer and two fifth wheels). Sites were pretty level. Not much shade but they have planted trees. Plenty for kids to do. On site restaurant and ice cream parlor were good. This was our first time staying. Not well signed driving 443 to campground. Will definitely return.

This campground is large and open with gravel pull through sites and grass on the side with wooden picnic tables. The sites could be a little more level for big rigs. The WiFi is very weak and I could never get on the internet with it so I used Verizon hot spot. We camped at Twin Grove Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.
We stayed for one night while traveling to Florida. Staff were very friendly. The east section of the campground is on an incline and we were not able to level our coach with the leveling pods, as the incline was too great. We stayed in the site without the coach auto-leveled, and it was fine. There is another area of the campground with level sites and we will stay in that area if we return. The campground offers lots of activities for families. Has a nice fenced dog area where we could let our dog run around off lease a bit. We were traveling in a 40 foot rig, and would stay here again.

If you are a bigger rig, watch out for your tail swing through the gate...they make you take an immediate right turn after punching in your code. The campground was kind of OK, but not really. It was a safe place and halfway decent looking, but had a long list of less than desirable things to us. Really stinky nights with so many people burning fires. The voltage read lower than I'd like ( it was 109 to 115 Volts). Lots of barking dogs in the morning. We heard a couple just barking away for long periods of time, this at 6 AM too. Management should really nip that problem in the bud. It wasn't that easy to level. It is one of those parks where most motorhomes' front wheels are way off the ground. They need to add the leveling of sites to their "to do list", for sure. Wi-Fi was almost nonexistent. My biggest problem was the office switching the pass code on me with zero warning. I had to walk in during rain and ask why the gate wasn't working. They said they change the code every week which was unbeknown to us. I did notice a multitude of other people doing the same thing, so we weren't the only ones with the problem. If you change the code every week and someone checks in mid-week and stays for a week, give them the both codes. Then on our last night, they actually stuck some very young and very loud tent campers on the RV site next to us, that's a new one and that move fully completed our disappointment in this campground. It had potential, but no need to return. Also, our dolly hitch bottomed out on asphalt as we left the campground (in the "big dip" near the trash cans). We camped at Twin Grove Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.
Nice campground overall, although a little cramped for my taste. The sites were well-leveled and the hookups especially well designed. Friendly, helpful staff, nice camp store, and restaurant. Unfortunately, the restaurant is only open on weekends before Memorial Day and they closed at 3 pm on Sunday, so we did not get a chance to sample the fare. Also note that the office closes at 3 pm on Sunday, so get your firewood early. The showers were clean but especially poorly designed. Very tiny stall and the shower head is mounted way too high with no way to adjust it downward. Bathrooms were clean when we arrived on Sunday, but the ones nearest our site were not cleaned at all on Monday and were noticeably dirty by Tuesday morning, which is really unacceptable. I'm assuming that was just a one-time oversight, because the general condition clearly indicates that they are regularly cleaned. On the plus side, there is a State Park directly across the road with miles of trails, including some paved and graveled rail-trails, so a great place to walk the dog. Lots of family activities, including two large swimming pools and a small amusement park with kiddie rides. We would stay here again. We camped at Twin Grove Resort and Campground in a Tent Trailer.
This was our first time here at this campground/resort and I actually found this on the website looking for different places to camp and travel to. This campground had great reviews and we would definitely consider this a 5-star campground/resort. What campground do you know of that has their own restaurant and bar onsite or even an small amusement park and a workout room and big ice cream parlor? We ate dinner there and walked everywhere to check the entire place and you need a few days to do it to be able to appreciate it. We stayed at site P-60 back in sight with the stream behind us and no problem with bugs, flies, mosquito's etc. This campground/resort is awesome for families with children and couples. They have everything including the family lodges, deluxe and standard cottages and cabins and the wonderful thing that we found with this resort is it is handicap accessible in a good amount of lodges/cottages/cabins as well as the pools. We will be back this year and for future camping. We camped at Twin Grove Resort and Campground in a Travel Trailer.
