Apr 2019 - $40.00
We stayed for one night as we had to be in the area and this was the nicest and most convenient RV park that we found in here. This is primarily a permanent residential mobile home park for seniors, but they also have a number of sites for nightly, weekly, or monthly stays. It is well maintained, clean, and pleasant. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. The site we had was paved and level plus it had full hook up. We were near the office and the wifi was strong. There is no cable television hook up but there were many OTA channels that came in through our RV's antenna. The mobile homes and Park Models were all well maintained. It is not far from the exit and entrance to the PA Turnpike North/South Extension and easy to get to - in the middle of a nice residential neighborhood. Payment must be made by cash or check - they take no credit cards. Call ahead for reservations and availability. In mid-week we reserved the only site still available over a month on advance. Should we need to stay in this area again, we would go back. Route 309 (not far away) has many stores, services, and restaurants. Fretz RV is near by. - TimeTravelers

Rate of $40.00 per night for full hookups, no discounts offered. Camping/parking here is akin to parking in a Walmart parking lot with hookups. Office hours are limited. Staff is friendly and willing to accommodate. As previously posted, all roads and sites are paved and level. Parking is parallel to the road and can offer a challenge to get into depending on the site and other units. Ambiance does not lend itself to outdoor activities such as sitting outside under the awning or BBQ'ing, although some did, zero privacy. All utilities worked as intended except the water was extremely murky, the color of weak ice tea. Maintenance had to come and purge the line. Every morning I had to run the water several minutes to get clear water. Although a convenient location, I would seriously explore other options before returning here. - ECM1

As the names says, a mobile home park with some sites for RVs. Sites are arranged so you must parallel park the RV. Our site was next to Koffel Road and had constant loud traffic noise. Had to sleep with ear plugs. The site was paved and level. They have a small laundry with 5 washing machines that take quarters only, $ 1.25 per load and 2 dryers. No change machine, you must go to the office for change. Really strange and old electric connection . No cable or other amenities, such as table, pool, playground, dog park, etc. The park is set up for permanent residents not travelers. Wi-Fi is advertised, but we could not get connected. We could not find any other good choice for visiting the city, but we would try somewhere else next time. - starwind

We stayed at this campground because we were visiting family and friends, and it's part of our Thousand Trails membership. Most of the sites are seasonal sites, many that are unkept with junk & garbage sitting around, and grass not being mowed. Sites are dirt/grass with picnic and fire ring. Some back in, some back to back, some pull through. FHU with cable. Extra for WiFi & 50 amp.
This is an old park that has not been kept up. Most of the 'transient' and week-end sites are level, back in sites, but VERY close together. During the week, this park is pretty much empty, and is very quiet. The week-ends are alot more busy, with the seasonal sites and people coming in with their dogs and riding golf carts throughout the park, disobeying the speed limits.
It's not a horrible park, but should not be advertised as a "Resort." We would stay here again. - RiversedgePA

By stream, but tree on my site was old and dying, dropping big branches in the wind and storms that went through. No security for a so called resort. Myself and a group goes to Robin Hill every year. This year was the worst. Was placed between two campers with loads of uncontrolled kids. They had no common courtesy to the people around them. They were up to 2:30 am for two nights. Campground had no security going around like most campgrounds to tell people to be quiet. Camp store closed up early on Sunday night. For the price was not worth what they are offering. - ScottW72
Jun 2017 - $64.00
The price brings the rating down. This is not a luxury resort and not worth $64 a night. Grass was high. Store barely has anything in it. Arcade is full of old games and a few of them don't work. Building behind barn is falling down, hopefully no kids go past the caution tape keeping them out. People drinking and spilling beer IN the pool. A bunch of drunk people drinking and shooting pool in the arcade. My guess would be that this is a weekly occurrence, as the people doing it had golf carts. The staff is friendly and they do have lots of activities. It's close to home so it's a good weekend getaway for us, but we only go here when we have a discount of some sort. There is nothing about this campground that justifies the $64 a night fee. - Mike Jh

This park is difficult to get to. Do not approach from the north if over 11'6" as there is a covered bridge of 12'1" just before the park entrance.
From the south (Hwy 563 and Covered Bridge Road), the road has some low hanging limbs but we made it at 12'7" by going in the opposite traffic lane occasionally.
Owner is extremely friendly and helpful.
Park has many permanent residents, but the RV section is separated from them.
Might not stay again due to difficulty getting in and out. - durham4926

The campgrounds is an older established park that has many seasonal campers. The seasonal sites have some units with a lot of junk outsides and many RVs have seen better days. The shorter stay sites are in a lower area near the creek. These sites are a mix of pea gravel, dirt, and grass. These sites are narrow with hookups behind. Most units needed sewer hose extensions to reach the outlet. The pool area is very nice and there is a nice playground for younger children. I thought the campground is not a good value since it is pretty worn and basic. - linnemj
Jun 2016 - $35.00
Rate depends on length of stay. Seasonal sites are separated from the transient sites. Room for my 36' 5th wheel and tow vehicle. Only campground in the area with full hook-ups. Staff is very nice and will work hard to accommodate your needs. Historic mill and covered bridge on site. Tohicon Creek runs through the campground. Very quiet during the week. Fills up on the weekend but folks have always been nice and followed the campground rules. Lots of activities for the kids on weekends. Nice clean pool. Play area. Would definitely stay again. - Smokeyfl

Not a great experience at this campground. The ladies at the desk were extremely nice but the campground needed some updating. Our campsite sat right on top of our neighbor. Small tire rim fire ring and no paving or gravel at the site. Our first night we heard very loud, very foul language about 3 sites over. They did bring the firewood you purchased to your camp. Doubt I will use this facility again. - Chacha51

Check in was friendly, pool was OK. Site was level, but electricity at pole was reverse-polarity (and fried my surge protector). When we complained, the maintenance guy said it was our issue, not theirs - they had never had a complaint of this magnitude before. They offered to move us to another spot but that proved to be open-neutral at the pole. We requested a refund of our money and departed quickly - were 'shooed' out by the maintenance crew. Not impressed. - Forrest Woods

Nice gravel sites, good WiFi, friendly people. Only downside is poor water pressure. - wpagejr

We really liked this park. Lots of trees and a stream runs through the middle of it. It was a bit tight to navigate the turns with a 43 foot coach but possible. - Tour49
Sep 2018 - $50.00
They took us on short notice on a busy weekend. Site was level but wet and muddy. Lots of nearby barking dogs and loud people. OK for a one-night stay in a pinch. - D-S

This was an overnight stop home and it was a great place to stop. Our site was a back in and we did have to unhook for the evening in order to fit. There was a 9 hole miniature golf course that the kids and I enjoyed. We will stay here again if we ever come back to the area. - alnal90

It was the first time we stayed and we loved it. I have three daughters and they had a blast meeting new friends. The staff was very helpful park was very clean, camp activities and entertainment, pool the playground sand volleyball hiking where also a plus at this campground. Definitely coming back next year, already booked our date with them. A must see campground to visit. We loved the Rocks. - Mike and Jen

The campground is farther off the main roads than you would expect after reading their brochure. No discounts for anything. Narrow entry and exit pasted the office. VERY hilly with huge drop off ditches on each side of the road. Steep road up the hill. Sites are no where near level. The bathhouse is old and outdated with no a/c or heat. The check-in clerk had no idea if the campground could fill propane in a motorhome. I did see the propane station but it was not reachable by a motorhome. I should have but did not read the reviews. Do not even think of going here in a motorhome. I will not return. - cmprcountry

We enjoyed our stay here. They have an on-staff security officer who drove around the campground. Although, there didn't seem to be a need for him to drive around, it was comforting to see him. The campground was well maintained and the owners take pride in it. We especially enjoyed the ice cream shop. The couple that worked there was very friendly. We took a hike to the top of the mountain. The view was amazing, but we were not prepared for how hard it was. I think that there should have been more information on how difficult the trails were. - Mike in NJ

We stayed at this campground the first weekend in May. This is one of the nicest and cleanest campgrounds we've ever stayed at. We had a deluxe red carpet site. We booked this weekend the previous July, it's a very popular campground. The interior roads were all paved, our campsite had a concrete pad. Very level. The campground is a bit of a maze, we found our campsite easily but there are people who can guide you to your site if you so wish. Some of the interior roads were a bit tight. Everyone there was very friendly and accommodating. Check in was fast. It has the nicest camp store of any that I've seen. Our site was next to our friends who we went with. Even though they were right next door we were separated by trees and bushes, so it gave us quite the feeling of privacy. The water pressure was good. The electric was conveniently located and stable. The sewer hook up was at the rear of the site but I was able to hook up without problem. My only complaint is that the sewer was slightly uphill, which was a little problematic when it came time to dump. The sewer connection was not threaded either. A rock on top of that took care of the problem. There are many things to do at this campground like hiking and fishing. The fishing was pretty good. They also rent golf carts, we rented one and enjoyed ourselves driving around this quite large campground. Plenty of stuff for kids to do. All in all an excellent weekend getaway. I would highly recommend this campground. - Tim W

Awesome campground. This was our third time here and we are never disappointed. Clean, friendly atmosphere. Lots of activities and an amazing pool! Our new favorite campground! - wheezer01

Nice place for a family with kids and a small unit. Not the place for a big rig and tow. Turns are tight, very tight, and someone decided huge rocks around the curves would be aesthetically pleasing. I guess to keep folks off the grass, but it's really tight. At check in there is just not enough room at the entrance. If you try to pull out of the way you block all the cars that are parked up there, not to mention the kids and golf carts! Plus the "gate" is atrocious. Honestly we barely make it through. Pretty place off the beaten path, so keep in mind you'll be driving 30 minutes to get anywhere. The quarry is loud, as is the speedway, but with AC's running you really don't hear it much, and you tend to tune it out. We didn't find it a problem. Others we were with love it, just depends what you're looking for! But I wouldn't recommend it for big rigs. - Lucky Lady from Florida

Clientele is made up by mostly seasonal campers - their sites are bit junky. Grounds are well kept, swimming pool looked clean and inviting. The camp host are friendly and very helpful. This is our second time and probably not our last - as we have friends close by. The Brandywine Creek is of a historical interest to some and beautiful woodlands surround the park. oWater pressure is on the low side but do-a-ble. - bobbodean

Many seasonal campers, but also room for travelers. Nice location along the Brandywine Creek. I saw ducks, geese, and blue herons during my stay. - Woody48

The park has a beautiful country setting next to a creek. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The sites are pretty level. If you go absolutely follow the owners suggested route. You will still encounter many hills but not windy roads. Bathrooms had many dead bugs. - Esse

We wound up here when heavy rains and weekend festivals closed or filled up all the parks near Gettysburg and Hershey Park. Getting to the park was easy but required several miles of 2-lane zig-zagging over the Turnpike. The interior roads were a bit steep and scary at first, but I unhooked, took it slowly, and didn't scrape the bottom or sides on anything. The pull-through site was spacious but not at all level side to side. This turned out to be a big advantage when torrential rains came. The slope allowed water to run downhill instead of pooling at our site. Our Verizon MiFi was almost unusable, but the camp wifi was excellent. We opted for the $10/3 day plan that allowed us to access fast wifi with 2 devices. They also had a "turbo" wifi, but I didn't try it out. The sewer cap was stuck on so hard we had to hammer it off, and the sewer pipe isn't threaded. It also raises up more than a foot above the ground, almost negating the nice downhill flow that leads up to it. The camp hosts were incredibly friendly. There are many seasonal campers, and most of them look just fine. There was one whose roof was dirty and caved in, but most of the permanent sites were well cared for. Since we were spending time over at Hershey and Gettysburg, we didn't get to enjoy the pool or the fire ring. The boys loved the playground, except for the swarms of noseeums that attacked every time we went outside. All-in-all a great stay. - TedandElle

Stayed here for the NHRA race. The campground is close to race track,but not within walking distance. WiFi only at the office and no Verizon service .They had lots of activities over the weekend and a band on Saturday night! The roads in the park are tight but go slow and you will have no problems. Most people here are seasonal but they put was travelers all together. - Donny and Donna

We had a very nice time at Sun Valley. We had no issues. Everyone in the office was very nice. Yes, there are a lot of seasonals but all were very nice. If I have to complain about something it is the size of the rocks in the roadways. Definitely tough on the feet while walking but we all managed.
Enjoy your stay and remember "it beats staying home." - grs34

Came here based on prior reviews, and pics of the pool (our 7yo was excited about the big slides!) Called for reservations only a week in advance, so sites were limited... But we got a site not far from the pool and office/store area. Pluses: - the pool: large, clean, big tubular slides, plenty of deck area with large amts of seating - pretty creek by the office/pool area, with sites available on it (mostly seasonal from what I could tell) - well-stocked store, with actual penny candy & lots of choices for munchies - did not experience any unfriendly staff Minuses: - Very hilly. There is a lower area, and then a steep winding road up to an upper area. Almost no flat places on the whole site, except right by the creek. - Sites packed close together, with little/no trees etc between sites. - Many noisy gas golf carts buzzing around at night, up until quiet hours start at 11pm. (Although it's probably the best way to get around the hilly terrain.) Probably won't return, too hilly/noisy/crowded for our tastes, with better cg options nearby. (It's a very pretty area, though, so glad we visited.) - Will Dennis
Sep 2016 - $55.00
Trashy. Very rude staff, clientele very strange. No freedom to be at your site without management or others interrupting. Smells like sewer, would not recommend at all. Other campgrounds within a mile radius much nicer and much friendlier staff. - JJLJ

We have stayed at this campground several times before. It is a very well run park. Seasonals and staff are all friendly and all rules are followed. No speeding golf carts and no excessive noise!! This is the first time the weather allowed us to use the pool--it was nice and warm and quite clean. A bit disappointed, though, that on a holiday weekend the water slides were not open. The golf cart parade was a lot of fun as was the selfie scavenger hunt for teens and adults. There are quite a few activities as well as a church service to choose from. The local bakery comes and sells some yummy desserts as wellThere is a nice hunting trail opposite the lake that leads up to "Devil's Den". I recommend checking it out. The sites are clean and nicely spaced out so you are not right next to your neighbor. Most of the sites have quite a bit of shade as well. If you do rent a site and you are in the "D" section, I would suggest renting a golf cart as well as the hill heading down to the pool and store is quite steep. We already have plans to return next year. - autismmom
