Other reviews are right... this place was incredibly run down and staff was very unwilling to help with problems. We stayed in a cabin the first night and could not sleep at all due to loud, drunk campers shouting to each other long past quiet hours. (We have two small children we were trying to get to sleep.) Called the owner and he refused to do anything to get them to quiet down. I should have just called the police and left. Everything about the place was dirty and unpleasant. It is as if the owners have just given up and are just letting the place decay but still charging people to stay there.

From the moment we pulled in, we could tell that Hershey Conewago was rather rundown. We decided to stay, however, as there was no one else camping in the section we were staying and we were told by the staff that no one else was expected for the rest of the week. (Apparently everyone else got the memo.) My children checked out the pool immediately and reported that it was nice. Upon inspection myself, I realized that it was greatly in need of some repair, but I must admit that it was by far the cleanest part of the campground. What I didn’t notice in the photos on Conewago’s website was the campground’s personal landfill that resided adjacent to the pool and gazebo. That landfill, by the way, is where the “sand volleyball court”, broken net and all, could be found. The mini golf course, which could be accessed for an additional charge, was a joke. Many of the “greens” were missing and a great deal of the course was overgrown with weeds. The basketball and tennis courts were as sad as the volleyball court. The playground, which we heard the owners bragging up to a potential customer, looked as if it had been built in 1943. The bathrooms were an absolute atrocity. The shower stalls were approximately 3 square feet and were filthy. I refused to shower in there, as I was terrified to bump into the disgusting wall or the even more disgusting shower curtain. I realize that campground bathrooms are often not immaculate and I have come to expect a few moths and spiders. This bathroom, however, was filthy. My husband reported that the toilets in the men’s room were as much fun as the rides at Hershey Park, given the fact that they seemed not to be bolted to the wall or floor. There was also a “bathroom trailer” which was like a huge port-a-potty and those were fairly clean. We were not able to use the facilities in the evening, however, on account of the family of skunks that took up residence under the stairs at dusk.

Do like the last part of this campground's name and GO somewhere else. To start, the restrooms were just filthy. If you like bugs showering with you and spiders all over you while you do your business then this is the place. The kids were unable to use the all torn swings and the playground was more of a litter box for the number of stay cats running around. The kids had bingo every morning, they went once and didn't want to return. Recommendation from a long time camper, skip this one and go on to the next one. It is not worth it.

We chose this campground after reading reviews about heavy train traffic through the other Hershey campground. We found it awsome! We camped with 2 small children and my 64 year old mother in law who has only camped one other time. We had a full hook up site across from the playground. It was very quiet and spacious, the children loved the playground and the feeding the fish in the large pond (small to huge fish go crazy on bread!) The lots were level and the store and staff were great. Highly recomended for the whole family and very close to hershey park.

Unlike the older reveiw for this campground,we found the restrooms were not filthy. The restroom are older but a well maintained. They were always clean when we used them. The free showers always had plenty of hot water.The sites are fairly large and pretty much level. The store is small but has the necessities. It is only located about 20 minutes from Hershey Amusment Park. There is a big covered pravilion if the weather gets bad. They had a nice playground for the kids to play at. If your a tenter, the sites are fairly large. I'd try for sites starting at A and work up the alphbet. I'd have no quams at staying at this park again.

This place was kind of a dump. The sites were spacious, but little or no attention was paid to upkeep of the facilities. The bathrooms were filthy and my wife had to go to the office to tell them so. The "playground" was a lawsuit waiting to happen. Broken boards, nails sticking out, pipes sticking out of the ground, unbelievable. The pool water was actually clean, but there were bugs and debris floating on top. We drove into town to use the community pool. Also, the rocks surrounding the pool that were set in some type of plaster mastic were breaking off, exposing sharp edges. It is obvious the owners take no interest in the facility, which was 1/2 empty despite being 4th of July weekend. It is a shame because it is very convenient to Hershey Park (about 8 miles or so). If there were maintenance people around I didn't see them. Wouldn't even think of going back there!!!!
