25 Parks near York, Pennsylvania
Sep 2016 - $35.00
We called a day ahead to ensure they had a site for us. When we arrived we were assigned a W/E site in the open "field" in the center of the park.
Staff were friendly and accommodating. Certainly the price was right, but I had hoped we'd have had a full service site (for the same price).
The sites in the "field" are a bit up and down, but it wasn't difficult to level our TT.
Dump "station" is a small site on the perimeter road, not a proper dump station with water and an area to wash down any spills from dumping. It was okay but a larger rig might have trouble getting to the site. - DCM/JMB

Parked 44 ft motorhome on grass/gravel; nice clean park and owners are on ground and courteous. asphalt roads inside park, and narrow. We had FHU; Not an excellent park, but good price and convenient to shopping and attractions and clean. They are gradually improving. - ritag

A basic affordable park in a very convenient location for exploring York. The restrooms/showers were new, modern and very clean individual rooms. There were some permanent units, some better than others. The WIFI worked for us and we got several OTA TV stations. Our firepit was full of garbage and we did not have a picnic table. Our site was grass & dirt. Highway noise was significant, but otherwise the park was quiet and peaceful. Personnel were very pleasant! Pull-throughs look pretty uneven. We would stay again if in the area as it is affordable and in a good location. - R&S

Lovely small private campground. Currently sitting out under the awning listen to the crickets enjoying a glass of whiskey. Quiet and peaceful. Close to York and the sites. Right on the York Heritage Rail Trail...a must do if your into rail trails. Manager recommended riding into downtown York (4 miles) and going to the farmers market and have lunch at White Rose Bar and Grill....both excellent recommendations. Check out the Harley factory tour. Lots of wineries around here so tomorrow we'll be wetting our whistles. Staying here on site 22 with out 36ft pusher, plenty of room and height. 20 amp electric may be a downfall for the novice camper but if you know how to do it there is no problem. Running our rear AC with no issues. Beautiful scenery and peaceful spot...grab some ice cream at the dairy as well. - Leon Condor

Just a basic CG. On the plus side, it is right next to a recreational trail that runs from York to the MD line. Gravel roads and pads are in fair condition. And it is quiet. On the minus side, not much for services. Unattended registration (at least on Friday). Very wooded and Not suitable for a tall rig (too many low-hanging branches for my 12.5'). There are only a couple sites with 30A electric and those were filled by what appeared to be long-term campers. The rest of the electric was 20A NEMA 5-15 (household type) outlets. The sewer connections were unusual... coming out of the ground at a 45 degree angle (not sure how I would connect my 90 degree elbow to that). Needless to say, we did not stay there and because there was essentially no 30A service, we will not be returning. If you are tent or TT camping and looking for some quiet, this might be your place. - FreeWheeler

We planned on staying here due to access to parks in York. However, after driving through decided to stay in Elizabethtown. The park has several old RVs (not sure if they are occupied). The restrooms are quite old (require security code to use), the connections are quite a distance from the sites. Wouldn't recommend this park. - Softball29

One of the most attractive campgrounds we have ever stayed at. Rolling hills and lots of grass...Many permanent sites, well maintained and manicured. Transient sites clean and level mixed in make it very attractive. We stayed here in a motorhome. A car is necessary as you are several miles from attractions. - deacon_1

Stayed here one night. New management from what I gather and they're not friendly. Wish we wouldn't have stayed. Lots of seasonal sites, some good some bad. Packed beside a trailer and their beagle barked and barked. Asked the owners if they could put it inside and they told us no, the dog likes it outside. People working there didn't seem to know the area when we were asking questions about how to get here and there. Only good thing was we were able to flush our tanks out really well and do our laundry. - Leon Condor

All opinions are based on perspective. My perspective was from that of a tent camper. Bath house was a long walk from tent sites, dimly lit and very rustic. Pool bathrooms were disgusting. Friday/Saturday night activities were loud and ran late so don't expect quiet camping. Don't plan on eating meals at the snack shop. The little bit that we did order was not high quality. Tent sites very large and spaced out nicely. Camp grounds (not the bathrooms) are kept very orderly and clean. Fishing lake is nice. Camp staff is friendly (if you don't include the 2 adults that were arguing in the main office when my 10 yr old son walked in. Saying F---- wasn't needed. Pet friendly. Bottom Line: Not worth the $40 / night (plus $7/ day extra since I have a family of 5). That is $7 a day so for my three night stay it was an extra $28. - Clem94

Restrooms very old and in dire need of remodeling, however they were clean. We stayed in pet area, only 10 spaces were full hookup, other than those there was electric only on the outer loop no hookup on inner loop. Was was over 300 feet away from our site. This campground is in need of updating. Kind of disappointing as in most Pennsylvania state parks that there are signs that prevent you from walking your dog around the campground. Can only walk them in the pet loop. That meant having to drive to different location to get to the lake.
Beautiful lake, nice day use facility. Due to weather we could only take kayaks on the lake for one day out of 4, Too much Wind and rain.
Never saw a ranger or state park personnel. There were two camp hosts. Plenty of trash cans by entrance to park, No recycle containers.
Due to limited water hookups and the pet restrictions, We will not go back to this campground. - doghouse traveler

Typically small tree-lined sites as we have come to expect in state parks. This is to say they are a bit on the short side, and for the most part satellite-unfriendly. Our campsite was electric only. The bathhouse and restrooms were clean, and it appeared the camp hosts and state park personnel do a very fine job of maintaining this campground. We were in the area to visit friends, therefore did not take advantage of this state park's many offerings. - CO2RV

We booked site 266 (full hookups) for a six night stay in May. We really like the Pennsylvania State Parks but there is some room for improvement. The sites 266-270 were electric sites "converted" to include water and sewer, the problem is the sewer hookup is almost at the middle to front side of the campsite, make sure you bring along extra sewer hose! All other utilities worked very well. Drainage of the above sites was great, we had some rain and there was no puddling or mud. The above sites are a mix of gravel and grass, mostly open with a tree line to the back. Bathrooms are across the street and were minimally cleaned each day. Note that the sites 241-247 might be a little hard to back in if you have a longer truck and trailer. The park offers many activities like hiking, fishing, kayaking and cycling. There are racks that you can lock up your kayaks or canoes that are close to the water. If you like the outdoors you will love this park. We would return. - bug512

I love this park. Beautiful views and some of the nicest people I ever met. Everyone treats you like family, The owner goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome. We had spot 57 which Is by far the best site there, right by the falls. Great fishing, ducks, wild rabbits, deer, and we even saw a mink. New showers and bathrooms, plenty of hot water, green grass that's kept very nice. Really, I can't say enough good things about this park. I wish we could have stayed longer. I understand the bridge is new so if you had heard the bridge couldn't withstand certain weights, that's no longer true. I don't know why this park isn't packed every weekend; except maybe its Dover' s best kept secret. We looked at all campgrounds near here and this one is top notch. - gypsysoul

Beautiful scenery...the bathroom facilities were unacceptable. There were wild rabbits running all around this place...even through the big puddles that were created when it rained. The man staffing the office was really nice and helpful. There is also a newspaper article hanging in the office about how the campground needed to be evacuated a few years back due to both creeks cresting their banks...interesting story, but questionable marketing practice to have it hanging in the office. - Dan Holdt

We stayed here when we visited hershey Park. The sites are grassy and a little hilly. They are close together with no buffer. Some of the tent sites are very close to the highway so request one not near the mini golf. The kids loved the mini golf even though it was a little run down. They also loved walking to the camp store and buying .25 ice creams. The store is well stocked with anything you may have left at home. We did not use the showers but the bathrooms were okay. Nothing great. They are centrally located. There is no hot water in the bathrooms. Each site comes with a fire ring and a picnic table. - mastro

Quick friendly check in, clean grounds, well cared for. Didn't use PAY WIFI (even woman at front desk said it was Tengo and "it stinks" - supposedly they're looking at other options). We used our Verizon Jetpack with 3 bars LTE. No cable TV but we got about 15 stations on the antenna. Our site had a slight grade to it, about 3.5" low in front. Nice grounds for walking and some sites on the water. A fair amount of seasonals like most TT's but most were ok looking. Site was a "double pull thru" and whoever gets there first takes a larger spot and squeezes the other site tight. They really need a divider to set the middle boundry. - HomeOnWheels_US

Large, grassy spaces with plenty of room for chaise and awnings. Spaces with no shade, partial shade, and full shade available. Wifi is Tengo and pretty much worthless. My AT&T hotspot worked fine, but had to go outside RV for phone calls. Plenty for kids, playground, large pool, farm animals and room to ride bikes and run around. Park is well maintained, roads are gravel with no ruts or potholes, spaces are paved with gravel and dirt. Maybe 40% of spaces are filled with permanent or seasonal campers, but still plenty of space available for shorter period campers. Very nice place, we'll come here again. - westwill3

The rate was actual $0 which reflects are TT elite membership.
The place has a farm-like feel, from all the animals to some of the vegetables they grow. The grounds are well maintained. The pool is in dire need of replacing. The water was clean, but there's missing tiles and cracks everywhere. The sites are easy to get into, with plenty of 50amp sites. The power goes out about everyday, but not for long. The people working here are friendly and helpful. I would definitely return if in the area. - Travelinlady

We stayed 3 nights While the Hershey RV Show was in progress. To celebrate the show, campground had an appetizer reception on Friday night and a desert spread on Saturday evening in the clubhouse. Campground is rather hilly but sites are tiered and relatively level. Many large trees for shade. Sites have large, loose gravel, and actually had trouble getting any traction with our manual transmission Miata as it was parked on a slight downhill slope. (Our friends had same difficulty with their Harley.) Bathhouse next to the office is new this year--very nice and clean. Like most KOA's, a bit over priced, but glad to have a spot during Hershey show. - RagTopDay

We stayed in a long pull thru site, with friends beside us in the next site. Both were very unlevel.Sites were gravel. Utilities worked good. There was free Wi Fi, which we did not use. While we enjoyed the quiet, we were surprised to find no activities for the kids that you would normally get at KOAs. There were no planned activities the entire weekend.Firewood was avaialable , but expensive at over 7$ a bundle. - mahill526

Pricey, but very well kept campground, great dog park. Roads are mostly gravel as are sites, very close together, but well laid out. - User3238

Decided to stay at Codorus rather than expensive parks closer to Gettysburg. Some sites in trees, newer sites in open grassy area. Paved RV pad. Electricity at the site. Strange no sewer or water at the site. Person at check-in booth was a little surly, but other staff helpful. Two ways to get into park: 1) older entrance was near the swimming pool and then winds up hill, 2) newer entrance comes off road at separate entrance. It does wind around a bit so road lines up with registration booth. Attended Sunday worship service with state park chaplain. Would recommend park to others. - Al Z

We stayed at Codorus State Park campground the first week of July 2016. We stayed over the 4th of July weekend, so pretty busy as you might expect. The entrance to the campground can be challenging to find and google maps never seemed to get it right for me, so be sure to check your directions carefully. The entrance to the campground through the checkpoint is a bit of a mess and can be a bit difficult to navigate with a larger rig. We have a 35' RV and were able to manage OK, but I can see where it could be a bit hairy for larger rigs, 5th wheels or trailers. Plenty of the above in the park though, so they seemed to have managed as well.
The showers / restrooms are centrally located in each loop of the campground with garbage dumpsters nearby. The showers / restrooms are old, but very clean and there was plenty of hot water.
The campground has both non-electric and 30amp electric sites. There is no water or dump facilities at the individual campsites, though there is both fresh water and dual dump stations at the entrance to the campground.
In general, I don't think there's a perfectly level site in the campground. You can find some that are close to level and others that aren't even close. I saw a lot of blocks being used at some campsites to level rigs and trailers. I saw one motorhome that has nearly 6" off the ground on blocks. I'd say that about half the sites have asphalt pads and half have dirt/stone pads.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the park as there is lots to do at this park, especially if you like the boating and fishing on the lake (though there is no swimming in the lake). - lazyjourney

We've been coming here the past few years in the fall. It's a great state park and nice campground. The water park is closed when we come so I can't comment on it, but I've seen it and looks great. The lake is beautiful and we've rented canoes and had lots of fun. There are a few trails to hike. It's a very peaceful here with varying site types from wooded to full sun. - Way2Roll

This is place is a "residential RV camper park" - it is dirty, run down, ducks everywhere (and their droppings), the staff was not nice at all. There are many "permanent" sites that clearly people live in all year and they are deplorable. The swing sets were covered in rust and barely work, there is a bridge over the pond that is ready to sink any minute. Go anywhere else than this place. Not impressed, and will never return. - Lspajm

nice little rv park, off the beaten path, but a good value, especially if a PassportAmerica member - easy backin sites, full hookups at most, with many 'campground' type sites also near the creek, in the woods.
good Wifi and laundry - the path through can be tight, with most vehicle parking along the path, and several partially into the path, but it's not a large park to navigate - also a nice setting for a stay in Southern Pennsylvania, near Gettysburg, Harrisburg, and Hershey. - hturnerfamily

33 sites, most for permanent campers. With a 32 feet 5th wheel we only had 2 available sites with full hookups (not big rig friendly).
Would not stay here again except if we had no other choice.
No access to washrooms or showers. They only take Credit Cards, no cash. Good for 1 night to go visit Hershey, PA - Liz & Bob

Stayed twice at this campground...once on the way down south and, two weeks later, on the way back north. Mix of seasonal and weekender campers. Full hookups at all sites, nice washrooms with showers, very clean and well setup laundry room and pleasant and professional staff. Came in after hours but the office had left very clear instructions as to what to do. Would definitely stay here again. - Ab and Cindy
