This was a our 2nd stay here over the course of a couple years. The owner needs a vacation. Our first time here he had an attitude and we chalked it up to 'everyone has a bad day now and then" and let it go at that. Our recent second stay, he's still apparently not lovin' life as he was confrontational right when we entered the office. Maybe's he's just trying to run off those of us that visit occasionally (as the campground is 90% permanents). Well he's succeeded because we will never go back. There are too many other places to stay where the owners actually appreciate one's business.
Generally what others have already said here. 90% seasonals but the drive throughs for those passing through were adequate. The campground is built really into the side of a mountain. Surprisingly, the site was level front to back but not from side to side and really needed about a 3" lift to get the rig level. Very helpful staff, extremely clean restrooms and the place is kept up very, very well. The roads need work and you almost think your on a old logging road at the entrance to the park. We will go back.
As long time campers at Lake George RV Park which is basically across the road from Ledgeview, we decided to try Ledgeview especially after Lake George RV Park has priced themselves out of sight. WOW, wished we had done this years ago. Nice huge sites. We had a pull though and were very pleased with the site. Very quiet. And the price was 2/3 of the LGRV park. We will return !!!!
I would guess 80% of the sites are permanent and would guess that within 5 years this will not be a campground but rather a trailer park. Generally the sites are on the large size but the some trees need to be taken out. The sites are very hard to get into between the trees and fences at edge of the roadways. They advertise this place as being "big rig friendly" but I can tell you anything over 23 feet in length is going to be a real challenge to get into to. The place needs some money put back into it as it is evident that this campground was designed for 1960's era trailers and has not been updated. On the plus side, the pools are very nice, the bathrooms are clean and are cleaned several times a day. But like I said at the beginning of this review, within five years, the place will be all permanents anyways so none of this will matter.
We were in the 600 area sites which are big and wide but not near anything including a bathroom. We had to drive to get to a bathroom or shower. The bathrooms at the rear of the front office are the cleanest. The ones near us (and not really that close) were dirty and crowded. The pools are very small(one for small children and the other for everyone else) and quickly become over crowded. The reservations system is a joke as this place is part of a corporation and when you call the 800 # you are not speaking to anyone that actually is at the campground. You can make reservations directly through the campground if your resourceful and can find the local phone number. However apparently the local campground and the corporate reservation people don't communicate and one can't tell you any information about your reservation if you've made it through the other entity. The check in took a long time too as apparently they have only 1 or 2 employees that wait on customers while the remaining 10 employees are either on break or just plain ignore you. This place is just to over run with kids, golf carts, and RV trailers coming and going at all hours. Lake George RV Park is a much better run, cleaner and a quieter campground than this place.
Although it does not have a pool and the sites are a little funky getting into, this is my favorite place of all time. We go in the fall and I just love the entire atmosphere there. It's quiet, yet right in the middle of Amish Country. So much to see, do and eat! Very quiet campground and it is right next door to a small amusement park (which for the old style wooded roller coaster noise, you wouldn't even hear anything). I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Lancaster.
If it was a little less expensive per night, I'd give the rating a "10". But it is expensive and there's no denying it. The place is very clean with 2 pools (1 indoors), nightly movie and live entertainment and lots of things to keep one occupied. Trolley service to town. Most of the sites are pull though although some on the lower level are back in. It is a very nice but expensive place.
The place was just all right. It was clean but the roads were in poor condition. The staff were mainly work-campers who were not familar with the area and were of little help regarding directions or sight seeing. And they were all over. Too many busy-bees in KOA shirts flocking all over the campground. Felt like I was under surveillance. I am sure that there are nicer places to stay and we will try one of those next time.
We did not stay on one of the supersites but rather out with the other common folk. Our site at the end of a roadway was fine and large enough for our fifth wheel and truck. However some of the sites were larger than others. The bathrooms were clean. The downside to the place is the constant jet take off's and landings from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Approximately every 3 to 5 minutes. It does get to be a little much. Also no cable TV and the reception with the RV antenna is not that great either. We did bike through the KOA which is just down the road and that place really looks run down compared to the Holiday L Travelpark. We also visited the First Landing State Park which is right on the water. Campsites there are just over the dune from the ocean. Beautiful but only limited water/sewer hookups and the bathrooms were a little primitive (what one would expect from a state campground). So Holiday L Travelpark is the best of the three.
If your looking for a place to park your RV and yourself for a week, then this is the place. If your the type that uses the campground as a homebase, then keep looking. Despite the hype you will read, Nomandy Farms is an hour and a half to ANYWHERES you might want to see. Two hours to Boston with the traffic, two hours to the beach, 1 1/2 hours to Salem or Plymouth. 40 minutes to a decent restaurant and the list goes on. And for $60.00 a night, I would expect cable TV hookup (Do not provide) and site pickup for your garbabe (Required that each camper haul their own garbage to a dumpster, which are few and far between). After a few hours wandering around, it became quite apparent why they must charge $60.00 per night; they have twice as much help as they need. They have a guy at the guard shack that does nothing but tell newly registered campers to pull up to the stop sign and wait for another employee who arrives on a cart to escourt you to your site. That conversation could of been had in the registration building. And this guy cannot even be bothered to open the gate for you as you arrive or depart the facility. You must lean out of your rig to wave a magetic tag at a sensore to get the gate to open. Really stupid considering the guy is stading right there. Jeesh. They also have an employee at the pool to make sure you sign a waiver, of which you already signed when you registered. They have two guys that ride the same cart every morning looking at empty sites and checking off on their maps. Like another poster said, the site sizes are from tiny to huge. We had a good sized site, but others were cramped in.
