We stayed at this campground for a long weekend. It is right before/after the bridge and the turn in can be tricky depending on the direction of your approach. There is a restaurant that may or may not be affiliated with the campground, but it appeared to only be open for ice cream at the window. The site we had was very tight, but fortunately we had nice neighbors since we really butted up to the site behind us and barely had room to extend our awning and not hit our neighbors on the side. And fortunately again, my son, who was going to have a tent on our site, had to cancel and didn't come. There would have been nowhere to put the tent. Our fire ring was in a spot where we would have had to essentially set up our chairs in our neighbor's site to use it. Mostly seasonal sites in our area. There is a pool, but it seldom had anyone in it. We were right next to the public access boat launch. This was not a problem. The boaters/visitors just parked across the campground road from us on the grass. All the people visiting and living there were friendly. The staff is amazing. Very accommodating and helpful. We did not have kids with us, so cannot comment on family activities. We camped at Fantasy Island Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We found nothing to do in Sunbury, but the office staff pointed us to nearby Northumberland where we were treated to an awesome parade that went on, literally, for hours. Very friendly people in town. The best thing about this cg is the wonderful state park literally feet from the entrance. There is a marina to rent boats, and lots of welcomed shade.

WARNING: On our way from Maryland my phone GPS took us through, yes THROUGH, downtown Harrisburg. Seriously - we went into DOWNTOWN Harrisburg. We came to an underpass with a 12'6" clearance and since we had not yet actually measured our new rig, but the owners manual said we had 12'3", we crept under it safely. I was a wreck after that! So PLEASE verify your directions before your trip! We came home via Rt 15.

Way back we used to be seasonal Campers there and last year we came back for a week. There were some great improvements made. The new owner tries very hard to bring it back how it was a few years ago. It's clean and a lot of fun, because they have some great weekend entertainment.
Knoebels is not far and I also like the state park right across the street. Great for riding a bicycle. We camped at Fantasy Island Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Wi-Fi worked good. The site I was on had a concrete pad. Water, sewer, and electric all worked as they should. The location for this campground is along the Susquehanna River and next to a state park. Also a great little ice cream shop next door. I'd stay here again.

Not a bad campground, with lots of activities and seasonal campers who were all very friendly. The owner just bought the campground in June, and was very friendly and seemed to be doing a fair job of keeping the place neat and clean. Electric and water was fine, but sewer hook-up as well as the dump station were above grade, and, well, water doesn't roll up hill. But, my main complaint is a biggie and a deal breaker for me, the showers were terrible! They were clean, but you had to pay for them, and if you get warm water, it is only just warm, never hot, and if someone else is using the shower closer to the water heater you will get freezing cold water. Other then that it was a nice stay. We camped at Fantasy Island Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice campground, the staff is very pleasant. It was clean and neat, and the site was fairly level. Good power, water pressure, and the Wi-Fi was good. Bad entry off of the road if coming from the north. Used the camp shower once: 50 cents for 8 minutes of only warm water, not hot enough. Stayed 2 nights and would go back again.

Campground website lists a rate of $40/night for 2 adults & 2 children. After a long day we arrived at Fantasy Island Campground and were charged $80/night for 4 adults. To add insult to this overcharge we discovered the showers were 50 cents for 8 minutes. Two of the 3 showers were operable, one didn't work at all. Of the two that worked the one nearest the water heater got all the hot water while the other was ice cold until the first shower user was done and shut off his hot water. The sinks weren't even plumbed for hot water, only cold. I would never recommend any this park to anyone who was traveling through the area. We camped at Fantasy Island Campground in a Tent.

Fantasy Island is just a small park. You have to make a sharp left turn on a busy road when coming from the north. Access from the south is very easy. There is waterfront access but not all campers let you pass by over their site. Our site was quite level. Wi-fi signal is adequate for email and browsing. Since June 15th this park is under new management, and they try to do their upper best. Arriving, they were very helpful and explained everything to us. Then we had a problem with our motorhome. The jacks did not go down. The office gave us some phone numbers for mobile RV-services but they would not come. Then one of the owners came and helped us. He phoned several people and within 30 minutes he could solve this problem. That is service, is not it?. It is a pity that we had no time to stay longer because we were heading for DC. But we will come back (hopefully without RV-problems!) Rate is PA-rate. We camped at Fantasy Island Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice but small campground. Store closed way too early: around 4:45. Pool is small but in the sun and is also heated. We stayed in the cabin. It did have a window a/c, but is a little undersized. The bathroom in the cabin is great to have! We stayed here because we love to camp, and it is only 25 minutes to Knobels. We camped at Fantasy Island Campground in a Campground Cabin.

I have been camping since 1968 and have been to tons of campgrounds all over the U.S. Sorry to say this is one I would not go back to. It`s one of the smallest campgrounds I`ve ever been to with the smallest pool as well. Office and store closed way early, about 5pm in the summertime. Store had hardly anything in it! My family was very disappointed and down right upset that we had to stay there. Thanks to area attractions the kids wound up having fun elsewhere. We camped at Fantasy Island Campground in a Travel Trailer.

My family camped here for a weekend. Park is very small, not that small is a bad thing. Most sites are very tight, have a concrete pad for your RV and a concrete patio. Roads are quite narrow and a bit difficult to manuever, however they too are concrete. This park is 85% seasonals and all set-ups appeared neat and well kept. We found the folks here friendly, however, there isn't much to do unless you want to go into the river. Ice cream shop within walking distance was a highlight. Pool was very nice per my kids, however it was also very, very small. Again, I think the river is the draw here. Don't know if we will be back.

We spent 3 nights at this campground. We were lucky to get a spot along the river. The site was tight but the hubby managed to get the trailer in fine. The site was NOT level nor did it have a concrete pad as the web site claims the sites have. It took a bit but the hubby managed to get the trailer mostly level. The campsite itself was nice. Free wifi! There was a big group of Winnies that showed up and they had taken over the big field. The site was also full of seasonal campers. One of the campers likes to hit golf balls into the river and almost hit our friend when she was out in her kayak. The staff was friendly. We arrived and the office was closed because the owners had gone out to dinner. They had left a welcome note on the front door of the office with a map to get to our campsite. The owner came down later in the evening to make sure we were ok and settled and all that good stuff. We had steps from the site down to the river and our own little concrete dock. The seasonal people had wood docks built. We had taken our yaks so the hubby and our friend made good use of this. We had chosen this site because it was close to Knoebels which we spent a fun but hot day at. We were also close to Penn's Cave which was great fun. That night the heat broke so we had a fire and the fire pit was on the edge of the bank down to the river. A lot of people had fires so it was nice. There was also a nice ice cream parlor within walking distance and it was quite nice We camped at Fantasy Island Campground in a Travel Trailer.

New owner is actively working on the park. 9 and 10 are over rating it. We were pre-season so it was fairly quiet, but a good location for the area. We stayed so that we could visit the Fleetwood plant. We camped at Fantasy Island Campground in a Motorhome.
