Codorus State Park, Hanover, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Codorus campground is a no frill, out and about with nature, campground. Clean and tidy, easy access, super friendly staff at the gate. The sites in the B loop allow pets, though not all sites have electric. I don't believe any have full hookup. There are several water pumps/faucets in each of the loops, and the dump station is handy. There is a small (and I assume unmanned) "camp store" at the gate that operates on the honor system and therefore I also assume only has ice and firewood. You are allowed to chop up any downed and dead trees for firewood (they leave the trees where they fall and you can go get the wood - we had a pile right behind our site that we used for kindling). The lake is large, has marina where you can rent pontoon boats, paddle boards, fishing boats, canoes and kayaks, and an oar house on another part of the lake for kayak and canoe rentals only. There is a visitors' center with a telescope positioned on the Eagle's nest during the nesting season. Fishing is allowed by permit. There is a nice, large pool that can get VERY crowded on weekends, but during our mid-week stay, it was very moderately attended. They allow food and drinks to come in (no coolers) but you are supposed to consume your food up in the eating/concessions area by the snack bar. The pool is open to the public and pricey. Our camping receipt discounted us to $8 per person per day for the pool (though you can get your hand stamped and go to your car, to the ample picnic area outside the pool area, or back to your campsite throughout the day). In-state residents pay about half that amount. My camping rate above included the $5 per night per extra vehicle charge we paid for a second car. We camped at Codorus State Park in a Motorhome.

Hanover is a close-by town that has anything you need: restaurants, fast food, shopping, medical care, kids entertainment in rainy weather (Hickory Hills has laser tag, race cars, etc. and Magic elm skating rink has roller skating. There are a couple of movie theaters also.).

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Camp Resort Williamsport MD, Williamsport, Maryland

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $73.00
Overall Rating:

Somewhat pricey, but the park is immaculate and we wanted to do something geared towards a 7 year old rather than a state park. This fit the bill. Yogi greeted us at the gate. We did not need to go into the office for registration. We just pulled up to wait for the next escort. The elaborate water park opened the weekend after ours, but we have been having a cold Spring, so might be too cold even then. Arcade had about 10 games - some for a quarter, a fully stocked store (sandwiches, milk, ice cream snacks, sandals, shirts, hats, dog supplies - the works!), a canteen (scooped ice cream, breakfast, etc.). Had to call about cable and 2 very pleasant and helpful staff members came by quickly. Signed up for text alerts and were alerted about 30 minutes before the next event. Be aware, that most events/activities cost extra. Painting a ceramic dinosaur cost $12. Making a sand scape costs, playing laser tag costs. But with rain showers, we were glad for activities to fill in our time. They have a Saturday night outdoor pavilion movie. Go carts are prohibited except if rented from the park. Plenty of people had rented them. We were located close to the store, canteen, basketball courts, jumping pillow, and pedal-go-carts, so no need to go any distance. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Camp Resort Williamsport MD in a Motorhome.

Gettysburg Campground, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

The owners and staff are very accommodating. We were even driven around to scout out and choose our site. Pool was pristine with comfortable chairs inside the pool and in the shaded patio adjoining. No lifeguard means strict enforcement of safety rules. Unaccompanied 12 year olds in the pool were not happy to be ejected until they had an adult with them. We had a site on the stream and my grandson and dogs enjoyed catching crayfish and minnows. Nice level site and happily, we were allowed a tent plus our rv on the one site. Not often the case in private parks. A reason to book again! My adult son and my grandson enjoyed camping out while we were content in the RV. quiet park. Well maintained. Little road noise, but the tree frogs and cicadas are quite loud at night, which I enjoy. We camped at Gettysburg Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

After all the historical highlights, and ready for something else? 1)If traveling with younger children, try "Land of Little Horses" 3 miles up the road. Pack a picnic., or use the cafe. 2) For a hike (easy or moderate options), try Cunningham Falls about 30 minutes drive ( Thurmont MD). Again, pack picnic lunch. 3)Shop the outlets - no sales tax on clothing.

Shenandoah River State Park, Bentonville, Virginia

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

RV sites area all roomy and level. However, until March 2018, there are no reserved spots. 32 sites with water and electric hookups for various equipment - tents, popups and RVs up to 60 feet long. Twenty-seven sites are back-in, and five are pull-through. The advantage of the back-in sites is that the side areas are quite large. Some of the roomiest sites I have seen. All sites are level and graveled. They advertise that site assignment is made upon arrival, but we arrived and were told to go pick a site that was not tagged, and set up camp. However, this was a rainy weekend, before the height of vacation season. All have a side area with table, fire pit and lantern poles. No sewer connections, but convenient trash and dump site. Dog friendly. Be aware that with Verizon we had no cell service in the park, and not on the road until we were close to Luray in one direction and Front Royal in the other. So cable. No TV reception. There are small cabins in the campground also. Pets are allowed in the cabins for a fee. We camped at Shenandoah River State Park in a Motorhome.

Foothills RV Park, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

The CR is very small, and immaculate. Extremely convenient to all the attractions and to the trolley stop right outside the camp office. However, do NOT come here to hang out in the campground. This CR is a place for you to park your rig and sleep when you are not out at Pigeon Forge, Dollywood, Gatlinburg or the National Forest. Very small lots - so small we had to move our MH slightly over/up on the concrete patio portion so our neighbor's fire ring was not under our slide! We did not have room to park our toad on our site, but there was room in front of the laundry, right across from us. Our MH is 29 feet long. We were comfortable there, and all utilities worked. Cable, of course, is limited. All dogs were leashed. Laundry and restrooms are SPOTLESS! We camped at Foothills RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Use the trolley around PF. $.50 a ride. If you have to transfer, you pay again. 20 minute car ride to Gatlinburg. Take the tram/cable car up to Ober Gatlinburg. Lots of artisan shops in the area. Going to Gatlinburg take the bypass. Do NOT let your GPS take you on Campbell Leap Road in an RV. It is pretty hairy to navigate, even in a car with hair pin turns and switchbacks, very narrow road, no shoulders and 2-3 foot ditches.

Cowans Gap State Park, Fort Loudon, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

What a treat to find this only 2 hours from home. Our camp hosts were the BEST! Like meeting up with old friends. These are electric only sites, with dump and water in the loop. Paved roads. Beach, but no lifeguard. Paddle boats and canoes for rent. Not all loops allow dogs.

The Cowan's Park website itself has very detailed information about each of the sites, much more than what you find through Reserve America. We reserved our spot 3 days before we wanted to arrive and thought we would have a bad spot. Not so! The website said the parking pad was 15 feet wide, so I thought we would be on top of other campers. We were parked in the center of our pad, 3 slides and an awning were open, dog's x-pen set up (actually 2 pens hooked together), and we STILL had about 15 feet before the start of the neighbor's parking pad. Some of the sites in loop A were BAD - small, on the road, or had the water spigot in their site and would only be suitable (if at all) for a tent. But since those sites did not show up in my filtered search for an RV site, we didn't have those offered as optional ones to choose from. There is a close-by parking lot for 2nd vehicle parking.

There is a small fishing/boating lake to walk around - 1-1/2 miles around, but use caution if you have a large dog. There is a 25-foot metal bridge in one part that a dog cannot walk across. You could carry a small dog easily, and it is no problem for people, or even bikes, but dog feet - no way. No real way to describe it. My husband's bad back struggled to carry our 75-pound dog across. The next day we just back-tracked and did not walk the whole circle. We camped at Cowans Gap State Park in a Motorhome.

Fantasy Island Campground, Sunbury, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at this campground for a long weekend. It is right before/after the bridge and the turn in can be tricky depending on the direction of your approach. There is a restaurant that may or may not be affiliated with the campground, but it appeared to only be open for ice cream at the window. The site we had was very tight, but fortunately we had nice neighbors since we really butted up to the site behind us and barely had room to extend our awning and not hit our neighbors on the side. And fortunately again, my son, who was going to have a tent on our site, had to cancel and didn't come. There would have been nowhere to put the tent. Our fire ring was in a spot where we would have had to essentially set up our chairs in our neighbor's site to use it. Mostly seasonal sites in our area. There is a pool, but it seldom had anyone in it. We were right next to the public access boat launch. This was not a problem. The boaters/visitors just parked across the campground road from us on the grass. All the people visiting and living there were friendly. The staff is amazing. Very accommodating and helpful. We did not have kids with us, so cannot comment on family activities. We camped at Fantasy Island Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We found nothing to do in Sunbury, but the office staff pointed us to nearby Northumberland where we were treated to an awesome parade that went on, literally, for hours. Very friendly people in town. The best thing about this cg is the wonderful state park literally feet from the entrance. There is a marina to rent boats, and lots of welcomed shade.

WARNING: On our way from Maryland my phone GPS took us through, yes THROUGH, downtown Harrisburg. Seriously - we went into DOWNTOWN Harrisburg. We came to an underpass with a 12'6" clearance and since we had not yet actually measured our new rig, but the owners manual said we had 12'3", we crept under it safely. I was a wreck after that! So PLEASE verify your directions before your trip! We came home via Rt 15.

Friendship Village Campground , Bedford, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

Be aware that you have a full stop right hand turn into the campground road off Rt 30, coming down a hill. Not a difficult turn, but it will come up on you and you need to be looking for the road and not going too fast to slow down sufficiently. Very nice campground with super friendly staff. Lots for kids and families to do, including 2 swimming pools, kid's night that included laser tag, mechanical hog ride (an inflatable), club room, gospel sing, and mini golf. There was an abundance of golf carts in this campground; more than I have seen anywhere else. And we noted that some of the seasonals/long term had elaborate and pristine sites (even concrete pads). Nothing looking shabby or neglected. Our site was pretty narrow - that was a negative, but our neighbors were very nice and friendly. Had to shift the coach a couple times to accommodate opening our awning on one side and not having our slide hit the utilities hook up post on the other side. We camped at Friendship Village Campground in a Motorhome.

We picked this campground based on reviews, a personal recommendation, and because we wanted to go see the Flight 93 memorial, which is an easy 30 minute ride right up Rt 30. Highly recommend this side trip. Planned to arrive and set up in time to get a free guided historical tour in town (3:30 - 5pm on Fridays). But, unfortunately, we arrived at the campground just before 3pm.

Harpers Ferry / Civil War Battlefields KOA, Harpers Ferry, West Virginia

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $73.00
Overall Rating:

Fees: mandatory resort fee of $10 a person. Since we didn't have kids, the only thing we got for our $10 was pancakes on Saturday. Your coffee, sausage, etc. was extra. They also charge another $3.00 per pet/per night fee. Don't know why or what that got us. The short road leading to the campground is good, and is right off the highway. Note that the access roads in the campground going to the pull-through sites is gravel and very narrow. The big 5th wheelers around us struggled to maneuver and park. Because the sites are short, anyone parking their tow car or truck hugged the road. Reservations staff sent all in our group in the wrong direction. Sites are VERY close to each other. The group next to us sat at their table and grilled only 3 feet from our sewer hook up, right outside my window. We had no problem neighbors, and the lively group of 4 families with many children across from us were respectful of the quiet time. We enjoyed watching the kids all running from one campsite to another and having fun. Had trouble with our TV connections and a call to the office resulted in 2 very nice gentlemen arriving within 5 minutes to show us what we were doing wrong (it was us, not the campground). Kids across from us loved the pool. There is a shaded pet park with some agility equipment in it and benches. The mini golf is there, too. The grounds and buildings seem to be well maintained and very clean. We camped at Harpers Ferry / Civil War Battlefields KOA in a Motorhome.

Convenient to the National battlefield - right next to it. If you want to see historical sites, the park has a free shuttle that runs every 15-20 minutes that goes to the various sites and also takes you into historic Harpers Ferry. Enjoyed the water views from town.

Delaware Seashore State Park, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

We have stayed in this park several times, particularly because the North beach is pet friendly. South beach has a lifeguard, but dogs aren't allowed on the beach. The North beach doesn't have a lifeguard. Your camping fee does allow you access to several different beaches, so you can camp in one area and "beach" in another. In season there is a marina open for meals and drinks. Close to Dewey, Bethany and Rehoboth for shopping and restaurants. The campground sites are nice. The roads are paved, flat, and wide enough. Keep dogs off the sandy areas due to sand burrs! Restrooms are roomy and clean. There is a nice clean laundry area, but we didn't use it. I have heard the staff will not allow any early check-ins and have you drive to a beach parking lot a few miles away to wait. I can't say. We never have arrived at check in time! We *thought* we had a fire pit when we camped last year, but there were no pits at any sites this time. We camped at Delaware Seashore State Park in a Motorhome.
