Arriving you see a large sign with posted rules in front of the office. Very few are enforced. Smoke is so heavy night and day from the fire rings mostly used by the permanent residents that it burns your eyes. Quiet hour starts at 11pm. We had to leave at 12:45am because of a large party behind us, that was still going on when we left. Of all our travels over the last 20 years never encountered such a bad experience. We will never go back to this campground nor recommend it to many of our camping friends. - User3547

This is not a "resort" as in a Jellystone. It is an older campground. It is a place where 90% of the people are seasonal campers. But it is a place I will go back to again. The roads are paved and the sites are gravel, but level. The electric is a 30 amp receptacle and the water is shared with next site but with ample pressure. Park highlights: The park sits on top of a hill with views of the valley below, people actually only drive 5 MPH in the park, friendly atmosphere, clean, miles from any major road, railway, traffic, and we felt welcomed and safe. We will return again. - 1texan

A trek up 5 miles of a winding, narrow road revealed a very rundown campground (though the valley view on the main road was beautiful. The buildings on the campground were very dilapidated (office closed at 5 pm for supper), the shower rooms dank and rundown, and the few sites available were surrounded on all sides by seasonal sites. It looked as though tent campers would have prime sites facing the view and would never have to go into the campground - my only concern would be the condition of the restrooms/showers. I would not recommend this to a "family" for reasons of atmosphere and safety, nor to a camper passing through because of the access. - Granite State Traveler

Park now closed but was a good location when traveling. Park was right off of Interstates 80 and 81. There was not much at the park but it was clean and easy. Staff was friendly. - jcamp2131

We were greeted by the friendly owner. The facility was currently replacing the front entrance road. (extensive renovation) We were escorted to our pull through site. We were also provided with a daily local paper and excellent assistance on directions for our trip to Delaware Water Gap. The cable tv was not quality although many channels were available. Everyone had the same problem. The sites were acceptable although it is not outstanding. The biggest asset of this park is the excellent location to the 2 interstates. It is the only rv park in the area and they have a captive market. Most of the units were large motorhomes and 5th wheels. Many of the campers were only there for 1 evening. According to our neighbors, they do get a lot of repeat business. You will not go wrong with this park for a "one night stand". It is NOT a long term facility. - jojolima

This is our yearly return trip. We again enjoyed ourselves on our visit to Knoebels. You can enter the amusement park without paying an admission fee, something that other similar campground/amusement parks don't offer. Most of the roads that we saw were paved. Our site was above average in size and had crushed stone put down though I had to use several boards to level the trailer. Noticed many other sites in our area were not level either. Our power box was in good working order. No Wi-Fi but very good signal on our Verizon cell phone. Geography at the campground was moderately to heavily wooded and moderately hilly. Staff was professional, friendly and experienced on how a campground should be run. Lots of campers & Rvers from tents to class A's and as always found everyone very respectful. No full hook ups or honey wagon service available so if you plan on doing a long stay you might need to bring a tote or use the campground facilities. Campground staff does a real good job keeping the bathrooms/shower areas clean. Would certainly return again or recommend this place to anyone. - mdcamping

Second review of this campground, my last stay was more then a year ago. Not much has changed since then, the campground is well maintained, clean and very functional bath houses, and very friendly staff. Price remains very high for an electric only site, but you are paying for convenience to the amusement park. Our site was fairly spacious, shaded, and level, but not all sites are the same. Roads are paved but tight. It is the perfect campground for visiting the park, which is outstanding. - Cyclonic

Knoebels Campground is not a traditional campground. It serves more as convenient accommodations for absolutely the nicest and friendliest amusement park in America. It's kind of like going to Disney World and staying in an onsite accommodation there. The older section is semi-primitive and cramped because it was designed mostly for tents. The newer section has larger sites for RVs, and it also has cabins. But be aware that the park supplies only electric - no other hookups. It is definitely a great place to camp for families, especially ones with kids. Bring along their bikes, the dog, and lots of firewood (or buy it there). The amusement park and the campground are adjacent to each other. A shuttle bus roams throughout the campground and delivers campers to and from the park. Knoebles was voted to have the best park food in the country by the cooking channel. And the best part is that only the park rides cost money. Non-riders pay nothing. The campground is usually pretty full all summer so you'd be wise to call for a reservation before just showing up. There is nothing elaborate about this campground but its congeniality and the fun you'll have makes it all worthwhile. Our family has spent 3 days there every year for the last 13, and we have our site reserved for 2016. - Penn senior travelers

We came to this campground because of the fabulous hiking here. Falls Trail 5-mile hike takes you past 21 waterfalls - stunning! The only drawback to this campground is no hookups, but if you can dry camp for three days in an RV or if you are a tent camper, definitely come here! Restrooms and facilities are very well kept. Visitor Center at the entrance is nice. No alcohol in the park (or be discrete). Note the approach from the south up Hwy 487 is steep - 18% grade. We disconnected our tow vehicle and slowly made it up the hill - well worth the effort. - Jolly Out There

We arrived here on a Sunday with a four day reservation. We explored on Sunday, hiked the falls area on Monday, and decided to leave on Tuesday, a day early. Beautiful scenery. The park was clean, the restrooms not so much. There was a nice enough snack stand at the beach area, where you could buy burgers, hot dogs, fries, ice cream kinds of food. We left early simply because we did what we came for (hiking the falls area), and honestly, there wasn't much else that we wanted to do. - kathyd

Ricketts Glen is a really nice state park with over 20 waterfalls and a small lake with boat rentals and a beach. There are two campground sections. One has some sites that are waterfront. That section is the most crowded. I stayed in the other section since no waterfront sites were available anyway. The bath houses were functional and reasonably clean, not brand new. The only real problem is that the shower water temp constantly fluctuated greatly. Tent camping is the most common since sites don't have water or electric. The sites are too small for anything but small trailers like pop-ups or mini-trailers. - kanling

This would be a 10 rating if the owners were not so greedy. Great place, so much to do onsite, well kept BUT they charge you extra for everything except the pool, water slides, bumper boats, paddle boats, peddle carts all extra, and a lot extra and if you have kids under 12 don't forgot a helmet, o yes, they charge you for helmets. Most of the activities close early as well, somewhere around 5-6pm. I remember years ago this cg didn't milk you for everything. Funny how money changes a person/owner. It will cost you just as much if not more than your campsite fee if you want to enjoy all they offer. - Hitch itch

Overall we were satisfied with our week stay at Splash Magic. While we won't be running back, we would say the stay was adequate. There were a couple things to take note of.
- This campground is VERY busy. Most of the sites are VERY tight. We actually got lucky and had some of the largest sites there.
- The wrist band/activity fees are extremely steep, especially for the weekend. We had a special package, and if we hadn't we would not have stayed.
- The pool and slides were nice. But the adults here were pretty rowdy and we did not appreciate the smoking that was not only allowed but encouraged with ash trays around the family swimming area.
- Renting a golf cart was a must. The campground is huge and our site was a very long walk from the pool and even farther from the river. We could have driven but the amount of bikes on the road made it next to impossible to get around. The bike rentals are great, but there are bikes everywhere!
- Our sites backed up to the railroad and a factory. We were in a 5th wheel so the noise was not a problem for us. But could be if you are tent camping or in a pop up. The factory works 3rd shift and is noisy at night.
- Speaking of noisy, this campground is a late night campground. LOTS of people up really late. Again, not a problem for us but I could see it could be for others.
- Finally, they are adding a ton of additional campsites. This is going to make the traffic and number of bikes even worse.
I would say it was good for a weekend, but I am afraid that it was so busy that I wouldn't want to be there over the weekend. Things were clean though. - Katie219

This is the second time we have stayed at this campground. Last year we were at a pond site, this year we had a river site. The river site was much nicer with more shade and a beautiful waterfront view. The site was a little narrow but fairly leveled. The bathrooms were clean. I like that they had one family shower stall in the bath house that we used. The water can also sometimes have a slight smell. My daughters enjoyed the pools and water slides as well as the activities. While you can purchase an activity package, we just purchased the water slide wristbands that were just $2.00 per person for your entire stay. This past weekend was Father's Day weekend and they had a free breakfast for the dads that was delicious. The road in is very narrow and the road by the river sites were partially gravel which made it hard for my girls to use their scooters. However, the road by the pond is paved. They had a DJ on Saturday night as well as Bingo. The workers were friendly. We would stay here again. - coacbcps

We stayed here for two nights and would never go back. I was glad I had a camper bathroom because the restrooms were filthy with clogged toilets. Our site was very small though I think all the best sites go to the seasonals because there were nicer ones. The campground allows noisy four wheelers which woke us up driving by at 2am. We got to witness a brawl between some of the campers and their dogs too! There's a reason this place is so cheap. Caveat emptor! - anner

This could be a very nice campground... except the bathrooms were old and have little to no privacy. They have no laundry on site. The small pool has very strange hours. Noon to 5pm the 6 to 9? Most of the nice sites are seasonals. It is very close to Knenobles, the provided utilities worked as they should. Staff was friendly enough. They are VERY picky about thier grass. We have decided to try other campgrounds in the area. - Camper 1972

This is a nearly perfect campground in a beautiful part of Pennsylvania. It is tightly controlled, but very clean and friendly. The cable is free, as is the Internet. Both are extremely strong...the cable has a hundred or so channels. Knoebels Amusement Park is 1.5 miles down the road. The ice cream store across the street has the best quality I have experienced, nearly anywhere. The only negatives are a small pool and office with limited supplies, due to size. It's quiet for adults and with Knoebels so close, a dream for kids. - sse

We were here last year and the staff is still friendly & helpful.Sites are level, good hookups,good tv & cell reception, just up the road from Knobles amusement park.Have a small pool but nice. Restrooms clean.Only down side, office is tiny with very little supplies other than candy & marshmellows.So bring what you need, any parts or supplies will be about 1-1/2 miles or so away.Great ice cream place across from camp. - vince/chestertown

We stayed during Bloomsburg Fair. Plenty of room,facilities were clean. Not a fancy place but a good campground for a few days. Don't let the entrance or office appearance dissuade you. We will be back next year. - hiker1

An older park, but everything worked. Good water pressure and good power. We used it as an overnight and it was easy to find and easy to get back on the freeway. No shade for the pull thru sites, but got great satellite signal. We would stay again if traveling through this area. - retiremsgarmy

First impressions were not great, office was sketchy. Sites were level and easy to get in and out. Wi-Fi okay at our site. Didn't use facilities as they looked dumpy. - chillyvt

Overall facilities are clean. Electric service does not have shut off switch at pedestal. Showers are lacking basic amenities, such as privacy, hooks, and a dry area for changing. Shower water temperature was not consistent. Unpaved roads with potholes led to puddles where insects were breeding. There are many full-timers here. Ducks and geese travel through to get to stream and pond. - Jeanne C

Very nice camp ground. Nice view over water - think river. We only stayed one night because of Passport America and set camp when it was dark. Not overly big rig friendly. Roads to and from narrow and tight turns. You can not just turn off the highway and get to the camp ground easy. Pull through but either us or the staff knew the height of the powerless inside the camp ground. Store Full of things - get little gem. We bought a fresh pumpkin pie. Must have been at least 3000 things to buy there. Everything from souvenirs to all sorts of food. - BasilFawlty

Stayed a year ago, then again on 5/4/13. Men's restroom was broken in 2012; STILL non-functioning. Store is dirty; wouldn't buy anything in there. Rate went from $30 in 2012 to $37. Only people who stay here now appear to be full-time residents. Will not be back. - cmclark

There is a gravel road to the park off of US220 and it is narrow for 2/3 and then single lane for the last 1/3. You have to drive all the way through the park to get to the office to check-in. We took a 30 amp site that was right by the office, laundry, and restrooms since there are no sewer hookups. The setting for the park is nice with all the wooded sites but we were just here for the night so didn't care about that. They have speed bumps along the road when you get close to the park which are insanely rough. I can't imagine anyone driving fast on the gravel road anyway. The dog run is nice. Cable worked real good and they have about 50 channels so we didn't even set up the satellite. Water pressure and voltage is good. Sites are not very level. We would not stay here again as you are also far away from any shopping. - zrxh14

This was our first trip to Pioneer, unseen. The owners are absolutely wonderful and helpful. The entrance to the campground was a little questionable as it was not well signed along the way. It is very narrow too. Just follow the main road which will lead you right into the campground. You go through a portion of the campground in order to get to the office. Everyone is very friendly and the seasonals sites are all clean and well kept. The campground is close to World's End and Rickets Glen State Parks. Eagle's Mere is not far but there are not many shops as they claim. We would definitely return in the future! Very relaxing trip! - Kim B.

Very relaxing campground with friendly staff! Rural location with not much close by. Buy your groceries before you get here. Dirt & gravel roads raise dust. Sites are wide & well separated & well laid out. Many sites are big rig capable. Some sites have 50A but most are 30A. Owners are expanding 50A access. No sewer hookups but they do have a dump by the camp store. Only bathroom and showers are at camp store. Outlying areas have porta-potties. Cable TV worked well. Camp wi-fi was spotty. Verizon data barely got 1 bar & ATT data was Edge network with minimal coverage. Had pool, dog run, hiking trail, & playgrounds for kids. Rate shown is before discount--Good Sam, Passport America, AAA, and others accepted. - Danno
