I stay here 3-4 days per week in a tent on a primitive site. It’s very peaceful down by the river. Some of the RV spots look very tight to me, but my RV is a van so I would use a tent site even if I did sleep in my van there. I have a thousand trails zone Park pass. I think it was $450. Divided by the nights I’ve used it I’m at about $8/ night. I typically use it 6 nights per week. - MrBoondock

Price reflects Thousand Trails membership. Campground is slowly making improvements. They are starting to try and control site usage better as in suggesting sites that better fit the size of the unit and needs. They still need to level some sites and trim some trees but, in their defense, sites become filled as fast as they empty. Sometimes it is hard to get a nice transit sites as they are holding sites to become seasonal but, in a pinch, will let transits use them. Small improvement. - DBLR

Some sites spacious, others crowded, not level but only took couple of boards on one side. WiFi didn't work...said wrong password and staff said " it should work". Not well designed. Host building about 1/2 mile away. Pick your own site. - Marie Hodgdon

We had reservations and arrived to a closed office at 12:45 on a Monday afternoon. We called 3 different numbers trying to reach someone. We finally did and were told they would arrive shortly. By this time we had found a "nite check-in" service and along with instructions from the lady who returned our call, walked the campground looking for a site with services. We were told to look at sites 10-22, which all have full hook-ups at this time of year. Only one of these sites was anywhere near level - but large trees everywhere (and narrow roadways) would make it difficult to pull in and out of these pull-thru sites. A little gravel and a grater would go a long way towards fixing many of these sites. After walking the campground for 15 minutes and still struggling with where to park, we decided to leave. We will not return to this campground again. - Kemptvillekids

Rate is figured on a months stay. Being in December can not judge how park is during peak time. Parked in area that has services available year round. Sites very close. Many permanent residents. Transient sites look to be much larger. Manager very nice. Can see they are attempting improvements. - phyllen

This park is now called Jonestown AOK Campground and has been under new management for the past year. They are working on bringing the campground up to date. That being said, it looks like they pay the bills by allowing lots of older trailers to stay permanently onsite.
We needed a spot for one night on the Monday night of the Labor Day Weekend. We could not find cheaper accommodations so we picked this park as it was on our route.
The RV site was fine for us: it was level, had an adequate electrical service, water pressure was good at 50 psi, the sewer was fine but most access points in the park lacked a good sealing cap so there were sewer odors at times.
It was mostly quiet while we were there except for the locals leaving the park at 4:30-6:30am. We were located on an end site near the exit road. It appeared to be the transient RV site area.
If this was a Passport America park we would stay again. $22 would be more appropriate for this type of RV park. - Howard Jaros

Made advanced registration but when we showed up at the entrance gate the gentleman said he did not have us on record. Nevertheless, he was very helpful and accommodating guiding us to a site. Turns out the office was closed on Sunday very early so there was no one to check with about the reservation and no one available (except the maintenance gent) to pay for the propane we obtained. It would have been nice if the person who took the reservation had told us these things before we showed up. Other than that the park was clean and neat. Since it was pouring rain most of our overnight stay we cannot comment on the facilities there. - Bob & Stephanie

Very small spots in F section. We we so close to camper next to us that we could smell their sewer. I should have taken it as a warning when the ranger ask me how many blocks we had with us when we got there. No level spots and no way we had enough blocking. Weeds even in flower beds taller than us. And shooting nearby all day all weekend. Picnic table at site was black from weather. We will not use this campground again. - Rshoster67

We stayed 2 nights for the Hershey RV show. Easy to get to from the interstate. It was a last minute decision so the park was very full. The extremely nice staff gentleman that met us at the gate and took us on a golf cart to all the site options that were still available to us was very helpful and kind. We picked a site that was easy to get in and out of. To be able to hook up to sewer we had to place our 5er so close to the side of the road that we were not able to extend our awning. The park needs lots of updating and maintenance. I did not go into the bathrooms or showers but my husband said I would not use them. Two of the showers were broke and in need of some serious cleaning. Our first night there we heard constant gun range shooting until past 8pm. There are quite a few of permanent sites and a few looked pretty "interesting" to say the least. The sites that had more privacy did not have sewer hook up but did have electric and water. Getting our RV in some of those sites with all the overhanging trees and tight turns would of been not worth the hassle for only 2 nights. I was grateful that we found a campsite on such short notice for the RV show but would not return there to camp again. - debwright

The staff was more than helpful as we were running a little (two days) late and they accommodated us and changed our reservation. Bathrooms were really clean and even heated so showering was really nice. The store had a lot of options even in the off-season and the female staff member was really nice and a good conversationalist. We will definitely return. - Wesley Roll

Near PA Amish country, quite when we were there. Nice pool and playground. lots of rain = lots of mud. A very nice place to visit. - Joe-Sandy

Campground is dated. Bathrooms absolutely need an update. We were there simply because it was the closest campground to the Hershey area that wasn't booked. Sewer connections ran uphill from the trailer. Site was nowhere close to level. We wouldn't go again. - Skippy9842

When we were at Hershey before we picked a site on the hill of Loop H. The 50 amp sites in that area don't have the $3 a day surcharge that is charged for all the other 50 amp sites in the campground. However, I must confess we got a bit tired of the big hill. For this stay we decided to check out Loop B. We found a great spot and felt we made an excellent choice. About all but the sites in Loop A (which has some very nice spots) are full hookup. Honestly, it isn't hard to find a nice campsite in this Thousand Trails. Every interaction we had with the staff was positive and we appreciated their helpfulness. My only complaint is the lack of internet connectivity. My Verizon signal was poor leaving me with only a fair data connect. Campground WiFi is only available at the Activity Center and it is even slower - think old time dial-up speeds. It isn't that the campground hasn't tried to supply WiFi. The area providers simply aren't willing to come out to the campground. My satellite TV signal was easy to dial in. There are many interesting things to see and do in the area as well as a nice pool and other facilities right on the property. Lots of shopping and restaurants are within 30 minutes. It is easy to see why Hershey Thousand Trails is one of the most popular campgrounds in the system. We are already thinking about our next visit. - nazpaz

Hersey RV now Thousand Trails Campground. This is a time share type park. They will try to sell you memberships. $60p/n full hook up. Nice park, dated. Bathrooms 3 star. Good water pressure, must continually push button to get water, no fans, no air, gets hot and humid. There are exhaust fans but none work. All gravel roads and parking areas. Young lady showed us to spot, very nice. They warn on handouts about power loses and not to keep dogs in RV. We did lose power for several hours, went on generator (be prepared if your furbabies in RV). We were in 30' TT and had adequate space. Lots close together. Do not miss Strasburg Train ride and museum, well worth the 45 min drive. - orangebeachbum

This is a Thousand Trails campground. When we arrived we were told the free 50 amp sites were up on a hill, the other 30/50 amp sites cost $3/night. Because it was forecasted to rain the night we arrived, we chose to take a (free 50 amp) site at the top of the hill. We were surprised how level the site was given it was on a hill. The site was narrow and you were close to your neighbor, but able to put out your slide outs and awnings and it was nicely shaded. The campground has many amenities including a nice clean pool, tennis courts, shuffleboard, miniature golf, catch and release pond where you can also kayak if you bring your own, arcade, sauna room, camp store with prepared food available, billiards and ping pong tables. This is a large campground so unless you have a golf cart or have a site near the activities, you will most likely drive to them. Bathrooms, showers and laundry available all in one building and were kept clean. - JVRich

Stayed three nights to visit family in area. Our space was nearly level, spacious, and clean. This park has new owners within the last year, and their efforts are obvious. Everyone was very friendly. 50 amp pedestal looked relatively new. Good water quality and pressure. I didn't swim in the pool but the water looked pristine, and the pool area was well maintained. Owners live onsite so they were always nearby and responsive. With the new owners the previous ratings no longer apply. - Skye Blu

This wooded and cramped campground needs to decide if it is going to be a seasonal only campground or if it wants to attract more families. The sites are not very level, the hookups are on the wrong side at half of the sites, and there is a pile of trashed picnic tables at the far end. The pool is small and older, not filthy but not clean either. Few services are provided (there is only one dumpster) without fee, including the "pay extra for air conditioning" fee. The office is open a few hours a week. The volleyball court is overgrown with grass, the playground equipment is fair at best, and the roads are tight for a larger rig. The wildlife is nice, though; we heard an owl on several occasions and the locusts were out in force. The other wildlife we saw was a two inch cockroach that crawled across the basketball court. If the daily rate was $8 lower, this review rate would be five points higher. Save your money and go elsewhere; this is not a sufficient base camp for attractions. We won't be coming back. - badge022

This was our second stay at this park. We stayed here for the RV show in Hershey. They provide a convenient shuttle to the show. We were in Site 30. Its a back in next to the creek. It has a concrete pad. Very nice site. Luckily we had a nice weekend with no rain and no threat from the creek. Unfortunately they have been flooded 3 times this year. The park looked good under the circumstances. They have a nice convenience/camp store with a nice menu of food that is very reasonable. Hubby had wings and i had a cheeseburger that was delivered to our site. Nice dog park and plenty of area to walk. Easy on and off 81. Even though they were booked full this weekend they left sites for weary travelers. They have many pull through sites. Had a nice visit with the owner on shuttle. Very nice family owned and run park. - handette

This is a nice koa. Set up for campers with kids. River & kayaking. Great little short order grill & ice cream. Small market & store w fishing, camping supplies. A fantastic laundry room. A VERY hard rain fell flooding the campground and a wonderful woman ( employee) with rubber boots and shoulder length gray hair woke me in the morning to see if I wanted to stay. I chose to leave. Backing out of my site. She was joined by a younger woman. They stuck with me and made certain I was clear and no other campers were in danger. Nice park great employees. But without kids you might be spending foolishly. Gravel hard on dogs paws. I will stay here again. - Road Dawg

Pros: Nice laundry room and shower/restrooms. Unfortunately it ends there. Cons: Welcoming staff not friendly at all. This campground serves food and they boast a large sign featuring hand-dipped ice cream in several flavors. But the same staff person said "We're out." We ordered dinner to be delivered to our site: broasted chicken, potato wedges, macaroni salad, and baked beans (cold). The chicken bordered on being burned; very overdone and dry! It was inedible and we threw it away. The "side" servings are not 4 ounces, they are 2 at best. Nothing was worth eating, just avoid that. Needless to say, I don't recommend this KOA. - sssccckkk1952

We made a late reservation to Starlite, but they were able to accommodate us. Our site had full hook ups. The Staff was very friendly and helpful. The store was very well stocked. It had everything one could want. The site was pretty level. I did need to use some leveling blocks but when I did the trailer was dead on. The connections were convenient. If I had to find something to nitpick it would be that the sewer connection was not threaded and you had to find a heavy object to put on top of it to make sure that the hose didn't come out of the ground. Also, our site was a little difficult to back into because the interior roads are narrow. Our site was wooded which afforded us quite a bit of privacy. Bathrooms were clean. The view from the plateau sites was really nice. Highly recommended. We will definitely be back. - Tim W

Spent this past weekend there. Despite the constant rain, we had a wonderful time. Our campsite was on Lower Plateau Road. What a gorgeous view! We stayed on the recommendation of a friend, and we will certainly be back! - wheezer01

A very family friendly campground affiliated with the Church of the Brethren. Sites are widely spaced and there are fields for all sorts of sports. A spash pad and quality, reasonably prices mini golf course are also available for family fun. Excellent hiking trails surround the camp, including the Appalachian Trail. Convenient access off I-78 and near attractions such as Cabela's and Roadside America. No cell service (text or voice) for AT&T customers. Verizon service is weak. - Lancaster Camper

Camp Swatara is a family oriented campground with wonderful amenities such as hiking, boating & fishing, swimming, volleyball and much more. Growing up my family camped there with the adult group from our church. Now I take my family there and it's still a wonderful place to go. The facilities are very well maintained and the camp store is well stocked with reasonable prices. There is so much to do there, one weekend is not long enough to fully enjoy all the amenities. The restrooms/bath houses are all well stocked and kept clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is much to do in the region if all you wish to do at Camp Swatara is sleep. It's near enough to several major tourist attractions to commute under 60 minutes, many only 1/2 hour. The only reason I did not rate Camp Swatara with a 10 is because the pool is shared with the children's day camp so pool hours vary each day and are quite limited to campers. We found it challenging to coordinate our other plans around the availability of the pool which we used during our stay. It is also somewhat of a long walk from the campground. After hiking, we were almost too tired for more walking to refresh ourselves in the pool. With all that said, we will continue to camp there, happily, over and over again. I recommend Camp Swatara to anyone camping with children and even pets. I probably should not neglect to mention it's owned by the Church of the Brethren so therefore has strict rules regarding the use of tobacco, alcohol, and playing radios. It's all forbidden. If you plan to party, book your stay elsewhere! This is a Christian-based, family oriented facility. - LeAnn Tough
