I have been camping all my life, I will not recommend this camp ground, if you are not a seasonal camper they make you wear a wrist band. Like your an outcast. The description above states grass for campers and tents, there is No grass there at all. It is just a stone filled hill. There are so many rules to follow it is not fun, there is a board with about 30 sites that can not drive golf carts because they did not follow the rules. Not kid friendly. The pool is nice but nothing else to do except watch golf carts of drinking smoking seasonal ladies drive around all evening. not sure why they did not get yelled at, my kids sure did for riding bikes around. Even check in was uncomfortable. Too many rules, sites are not nice, all stone and those dumb wrist bands.

My family and I stayed for a weekend in 2005 and enjoyed ourselves. There were many activities to be enjoyed by all ages, the pool and fishing pond were also great! For pop-ups and tents, it is nice. The lots are stony rather than grass which is fine with us. The bathing facilities were a little dirty but manageable. Only down fall is that the majority of the park is a one way street. This drove us crazy.

61 W, 46 S, 161 E, 311 total spaces. They also have numerous rentals: pop-ups, trailers, cabins, and cottages. Camp store, CATV, pool, playground, fishing pond, restrooms, laundry(2), daily planned activities, volleyball, horseshoes, playground, petting zoo, nature trail, arts and crafts. Small inner roads, 3 out of 4 of the washers in the laundry room (next to office) were broken. It is a considerable distance to get to park from main highways on secondary roads. (I am sure as we travel more and more this will become less important, but I am trying to look at this through the eyes of the novice trailer-er who isn't real comfortable with hauling a huge trailer around hairpin curves yet.) I have to give them a high rating on natural beauty. There were lots of trees and natural beauty. Employees were very friendly and helpful. The showers and restrooms were clean. However, the laundry room had several broken wash machines and while we were there, supposedly due to the drought, they closed the laundromats to conserve water, while they sent you to a lundromat in town.(?) Also, I feel that allowing flotation devices in a pool that size made for very crowded conditions. The reason we chose this particular park (while sitting in Gettysburg) was so we would have access to a modem line. This was one of the few campgrounds in this general area that had a modem line listed. Unfortunately though we found out that AOL (our primary provider) doesn't have a local number in this area, so we had to use their 1-800 number. If you don't have reason to want to access a modem line there are a number of beautiful parks in the Lancaster County area. The location was a little remote to get to, but was a really lovely site. Unfortunately, we arrived in Pennsylvania during a period of extreme drought and were unable to have a campfire (which Bob loves). The office personnel were extremely friendly and helpful. Recommeding on our first night a smorgasbord nearby. We came home STUFFED. Our campsite was a pull-thru with full service on a gravel pad.
