Small family owned and run park just off US30. Due to the RV Show in Hershey this was the closest we could get to Harrisburg. Took a spot with water and 50 amp electric, no sewer. Grass spot that is need of serious leveling but I positioned so that the jacks would level the MH but can't open my awning due to the flag pole. Park appears to be quiet. There are signs up that the road is closed but the park is located prior to the road closure. We camped at Ben Franklin RV Park in a Motorhome.

Agree with comments from earlier reviews. Would definitely stay here again as a stopping point going to other locations either north, south, or west. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. Regarding the Family Friendly Park rating, the owners continue to add to the campground, so I expect there will be more available for children in the future. The campground is located close to a major highway (US Hwy 30) so there is a bit of traffic noise. We camped at Ben Franklin RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is as advertised, a park, not a campground and has mostly live-ins. It has back-in and some pull-through sites open for travelers, most with hook-ups. We had spoken with the owner, who took our reservation and left us parking information at the self-check-in. He gave us several choices due to the size of our rig (43'.) We chose a 50-amp, full-hook-up, back-in site. The site was on grass, the camp was quiet and had a 1 PM check-out time. Our receipt was emailed to us the next day. Although a bit of a parking challenge, we would stay here again when traveling this way. We camped at Ben Franklin RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed one week and two days. Lots to see and do in the area. Located right next to Hwy 30. Knew this from the reviews and Google Maps, but this campground was cheaper then others in the area so decided to try it and just run our fan on the A/C in the bedroom to cut out the highway noise when sleeping. Worked for us. Campground has asphalt roads and gravel and/or grass sites. We were in a back-in. It was angled just the way they should all be. Was able to get all our stuff on the site and off the road without any problems. No cable TV, but got 15 channels off the antenna. Has wi-fi, worked about 60% of the time. Two days/nights cool enough to have the windows open. There are fire pits but no campfires during those two days/nights so we were able to have the windows open and enjoy the nice days and nights without the nasty smell of smoke invading our home. Easy in and out with a HDT & trailer. (60 foot combo) We camped at Ben Franklin RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Camped here 2 nights and only asked for water & electricity. Nice baths, kept clean, but showers need a little more water pressure. Wi-fi good, but after 3 hours daily, it cuts you off-line. Good location for Harley Davidson factory tour and UTZ Snacks factory tour and visiting Gettysburg National Park. We camped at Ben Franklin RV Park in a Motorhome.

This used to be a mobile home park and the owners are well on their way to converting it to a nice little RV park. We stayed here because it was along our route and we wanted to visit the Harley plant in York. Easy access and very nice, helpful owners. We camped at Ben Franklin RV Park in a Motorhome.

While visiting kids/grandkids in York, found this to be about the only RV park. Owners (family) are very friendly & accommodating. They are midway to converting this park from a Mobile Homestead to RV orientated. A big project going on but were available able to help us. Stay 7 days, pay for 6 and the really nice part is you will be at the center of so much to do. Gettysburg, Hershy, Baltimore and lots of others. Very easy to get to from I-83 situated on US30. Yes, we will stay here again. Stayed in a 40' Bus Conversion. We camped at Ben Franklin RV Park in a Motorhome.

The campground is being changed from a mobile home park to a RV campground, so you will find some "homes" still there. This is a "no frills" park; it is clean (but cluttered), the roads are paved, and the site easily accommodated our 41 ft RV. The host is pleasant and helpful. There is so much to see in the area, that this is an ideal location. We camped at Ben Franklin RV Park in a Motorhome.

Owner/Mgr. was very helpful getting to out site. Many 5th wheels and a few (3 or 4) full time mobile homes. Very friendly people staying here and a safe park. The roads inside the park are paved and there are many sites without shade for motorhomes. We would stay here again. This park is very close to everything. We camped at Ben Franklin RV Park in a Motorhome.

The owner is friendly and the internal hard surface roads are in excellent condition. The RV sites are grass/dirt so when it rained we had mud and water pooled under the RV. The sites are not level and we used many wood blocks to level our 5th Wheel. There are many noises--trucks using there exhaust brakes from a Hwy 30 exit and train whistles each day around 6:00 AM. The utility connections are a distance from the RV requiring two 25 foot water hoses and a 20 and 10 foot sewer hose. The power connection was good. Parking is a problem because of the many vehicles of the semi-permanent residents. There is no dump station so I am not sure how the water and electric only sites deal with their RV tanks. There are no restrooms or showers. Wi-Fi was excellent. We wouldn't stay there again. We camped at Ben Franklin RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were tired and couldn't find anywhere else to stay because we have a 45' motorhome and no one else could accommodate our size, or they were full. This place is transitioning from mobile homes to RV's. There wasn't a lot of swing room because residents had parked their cars on the roads that day. Our site was grass and not properly prepared for heavy coaches, but they were doing us a favor by giving us a site and could only put us on a non-big-rig site, all else was full. We did sink a bit, but the owners brought gravel and it was easy to get out. 95% are currently permanent residents or pipeline workers, and so are long term, but temporary. Easy access from Rt. 30 and easy access to the highways and local attractions. The owners are very friendly and have high hopes of making it a big rig facility. There are no common facilities at this time so you need to be self-contained. Nothing fancy. It seemed to be a safe location. The residents were quiet. Satellite TV and Verizon cell service were good. We stayed 3 days. We camped at Ben Franklin RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is just an overnight if you are in the area. Close to the highway with a lot of road noise. We have a 44 foot MH and we did not fit well in the site they gave us, and the sites are grassy/broken concrete. Be careful at the entrance as there is a considerable dip where the driveway and road meet, our tow bar scraped. We camped at Ben Franklin RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is just a place to stay that is decent and safe. The owner is very helpful and gave us several suggestions on activities and places to eat and see. It's a mobile home park converting to RV park. No bathhouse or amenities. You must be self contained. We will stay here again. We camped at Ben Franklin RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

They are converting this campground as time permits, to add additional spaces for campers. Rate was cheaper than most in the area. Utilities were good and it is close to everything in the area and only one block off US-30 but no road noise was heard. The hosts were accommodating and trusting and did everything to make our four day stay comfortable. We would stay here again if this way. We camped at Ben Franklin RV Park in a Motorhome.

We went through 3 different hookups for 50 amp service. The boxes that we plugged into, kept quitting. Host said he never expererence that before and did not know what was wrong. Clean campground and close to historical spots but would not stay here again due to electric problems, and it has no bathrooms and showers. Too high a price for campground, but the cheapest in area. We camped at Ben Franklin RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
