Well, we arrived Friday at 8 o'clock, unhooked and got a fire going. My 17 son took the golf cart out for a ride around the campground. So he came back in 10 mins and behind him came 3 golf carts all being staff including the owner. He didn't even say hi. All he said, as he got into my face, this golf cart you have may not be used in this campground. I did not say a word as he said again this golf cart may not leave the site. He said no gas-powered carts are allowed. As all three of there carts are gas powered. The way he handled it in front of my family was extremely rude. Anyways rules are rules. I just didn't know that was a rule, he could have been a lot nicer...Campground itself is very close together as sites are on top of each other... If you wanna fish in there fishless pond you have to pay 5 bucks a person. What a joke!!!! Sites are not level either. Would not recommend. - Harrison jones

We were very excited to visit this campground. There were pluses and minuses to the campground. First the positives: The roads were pretty easy to navigate, our site was easy to pull in to, there was a greeter at the main gate with our paperwork, made it very easy to check in, this I think was because it was 4th of July weekend. There was a live band one night and a DJ the next, the proximity of our sites to the stage made it easy for us to sit at our campsites and enjoy the music. My wife and I do not have small children but there were many activities to keep kids busy. The pool was nice but perhaps a little on the small side. The camp store was stocked with the basics. The ice cream store was also very nice. The campground was also nicely kept, very clean. Now for the negatives: While the pull sites were very long, they were also very narrow. Our door opened up to a common space that was shared by our neighbors. Now, in our case our neighbors were our very good friends who went along with us. The sites alternated in which direction you pulled in. So our door and our friends door opened up towards each other. Our campers were so close to one another that we could not put our awnings all the way out without bumping into each other. there were two fire rings and two picnic tables in the common space. For us wasn't a problem but if you didn't know your neighbors you'd have to pick the one you wanted to use. As far as the campsite itself, it was far from level. I've never been in a campsite so unlevel before. Out friends camper was so high in the front that their bottom step was about three feet off the ground. Fortunately, they had a foldable step that they could use to get in their trailer. The last thing I would like to point out is that the claimed "Well stocked" pond was a disappointment. Over three days of fishing I only caught one Bass, it was the only fish I saw that was caught over those three days. - Tim W

Very nice 1000 Trails campground. Check-in staff was great and they took us to check out the sites in a golf cart. We then picked the site we wanted and we were off.
Very nice site and my wife and the granddaughter enjoyed the pool. - Frankk

My wife, adult daughter, and I spent a long weekend at PA Dutch Country RV Resort in July 2019 and had a great experience. Unlike most Thousand Trails parks, we were met at check in by a ranger who drove us on his golf cart to examine available campsites that would fit our rig. This was much nicer than the usual "Thousand Trails Shuffle" of driving one's own rig around and around in the park looking for a campsite. Our site was mostly level, fully shaded, and more than long enough for our 37 foot motorhome and toad. The staff were universally friendly, and nice activities such as hay rides, crafts, and even an ice-cream party were offered for the kids. The pool is on the small side but well maintained. The free miniature golf course was one of the best we've found at a campground with a good combination of easy and challenging holes. The only thing detracting from the camping experience is the location of a shooting range not far from the campground, so the sound of gunfire was fairly regular through the daylight hours. The road into the park (Lehman Road) is not well marked and hard to see. There is no break in the painted lines on the highway, and there is no "Thousand Trails" sign. In fact, the sign still reads "Outdoor World." If coming from the north it's IMMEDIATELY after the Martin RV sales lot. - Miles and Smiles

Camped in a 35" motorhome. We are self-contained so cannot comment on restrooms/shower facilities. Pros- - We arrive mid-week and were able to get a shady, full hookup site. - This is a Thousand Trails campground but surprisingly there were many permanent or long term RVs. That said, it was still clean, well maintained and quiet. - Verizon worked great - Kirt checked us in and took us by golf cart to choose a site - delightful man. A very quick and nice process. - Great location to explore Hershey and Lancaster areas. Cons - - none - Gina A

Great campground. Lots of sites. The weekend we stayed they had live music (Dave Mell's Blues Band) Saturday that could be heard all over the campground and they sounded GREAT. It was nice to sit around the campfire and listen to them playing. Made the weekend special. - Frankk

So this is a good news/ bad news campsite. Most spaces are very close together, and it feels even more so. The only reason to stay here is the proximity to Hersheypark. We camped here with the grandgirls and the closeness to the park was mostly worth it. We didn't use the free shuttle as we thought it more convenient to be able to come and go as we pleased. We'd stay again if we were visiting Hershey. - deewalttoolguy

First Impression: Too far out in the country for a stop-over CG. Many seasonal sites that look nice. CG buildings appear to be aged farm buildings (wood rot, deteriorating). Safety: No concerns. Access: Exit 40 off I-78, turned north on PA-787, immediate left onto Old Route 22. Right on Donat Rd, straight on Little Round Top Rd, to Robin Hill Rd that puts you in the CG. Old Route 22 in poor condition. Garmin GPS is accurate. Office: Nice store with snacks, food items, souvenirs, RV equipment items. Credit cards accepted. Online reservations available through RVontheGO. No price discounts. Facilities: Pool and big game room ($). Small, clean laundry room. Restrooms near office need restoration. They're outdated, have mold, and need a deep cleaning. The men's room smells like an outhouse. Propane sales. Multiple playground areas. No off-leash dog run. Campground: In a flood plain (stream). Wooden buildings might not survive a storm. Moderately wooded. Interior roads are narrow, dirt/gravel and asphalt in good condition with gentle turns and no overhead obstacles. Mostly seasonal sites. Big rig challenging and long coaches might have maneuvering problems. Tent areas, no yurts but cabins are available. Sites vary from close to secluded (seasonals), sufficiently level, grass/dirt/gravel, all back-in. Pedestals at middle of site with electric 20/30/50; metered for long-term. Adequate water pressure with good taste. No sewer; "FHU" means using a bladder lying on the ground. Mine was smashed - unusable. No patios; usable picnic tables. Fire rings. Marginal satellite views (trees). Free cable TV (34 channels). Tengonet Wi-Fi but limited range. Verizon phone and 4G at 1-2 bars. No recycle bins. Noise: Some CG road traffic - minimal. Bug Report (late July): biting flies. Runners: CG roads good for running. Yoga: put your mat on the grass if so inclined. Conclusion: Score 5-Acceptable. IMO: overpriced. CG charges $4 "resort fee" per day. - StephenK

Pretty much a park for annuals, about 90%. There are a few open sites for passers through. Our site was weird to figure out; we parked the trailer on the grass with our site itself gravel. Big enough for the truck as well. Our section was up a huge hill but level on top. FHU site; water quality is good; electric good. Verizon coverage is OK and the park offers cable, which is nice. Pretty big park with a couple of playgrounds, swimming pool, activity center. Have not found a place to let the dogs loose though; there are lots of farms in the area. - Kerch Family

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

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

Avoid the place at all costs. The first site they directed us to was not level and the water was not accessible. Other sites on that row had low hanging wires and tree branches. We found a better site in a different area and the lady said it was okay to move there as long as we backed in (there were empty pull throughs) and used 30 amp. We were passport America. So we moved, leveled, pulled out the slides etc. then discovered that the polarity on the 30 amp was reversed and the 50 amp only registered 30 amps with fluctuating current. Luckily is was not hot so we could dry camp. I called the office at 2:30 and she said she would try to find a maintenance person but it was late! In the meantime, the only other person camped in the area said that he had similar problem and the owners son had told him he could move. His coach had a high end surge protector. so he stayed out. The lady in the office called at four and said we could move or they would refund our money, we were only staying one night so we did not bother. In the morning the lady at the desk, with the owner standing right there, said no refunds. This is totally irresponsible to have known electrical problems that could damage your coach. STAY AWAY. - HayNan

We stayed there in July and we had 90 deg weather. Their power was terrible we could not run our A/C voltage to low they had not service people to check our breaker and we not helpful at all. campsite was all stone and hard for the dog to walk around old campground and out of the way. - Dotty Weis

This campground is designed for weekend campers with many weekend activities. However, there is an open space that appears to be somewhat recently added, that works for overnight for travelers.This is quite adequate with drive-in spaces with full-hookups including 50 amps. The sites are fairly level, although we had to work a bit to get leveled. The gate to enter the park is quite narrow, so be sure to watch your mirrors, so you do not lose them. The directions to the park in the PP book are confusing. Exit 23 and go south for about 100 yards and turn right (go west) on old route 22. Also, the campground easily accommodated our 40 foot rig, with the toad attached. - hoppytoad

We stopped here for the night off of I-81. We had just come back into the US from Canada, so didn't have any fresh vegetables and purchased canned vegies from the camp store. The campground looks like it is more suited for the seasonal folks, than itinerants such as ourselves. Our campsite was a pull-through out in the open, the other campsites are sheltered under trees along curving lanes. The person in the office was brusque and almost rude. She made a point (and there are also lots of signs) about dogs not going into certain areas as they "urinate" on the plants and ruin them. All said, we were grateful to have a spot to stop for the night and get off the road. - ShoreXplorers

The Echo Valley its self is a beautiful place, location, scenery, nature. But it all is deminished when you meet and deal with the "owners" of this campground. They are dishonest swindlers who will insult you, lie to you, and insisit on countless extra charges for guests and using the campground facilities, which are run down beyond belief. The old Echo Valley campground we all used to know and love to spend time at is gone. So sorry to see this happen. Warning to all..BEWARE! - PaGibby1

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

High season rates for adequate site. It was pull through but had to unhook and maneuver to get to over to right side of site. Neighbor's awning hung over to our space and picnic table partially on our site. He wasn't home so we managed. Glad to get satellite access for TV though there were some trees. Staff was very friendly, helpful. Pool looked great though we didn't use it. Park was well maintained. Next time we'd probably go down an exit and camp free at a store parking lot. - rwarner22

The campground was very clean, well maintained and the service was great. Our campsite was next to their beautiful lake/pond area. The reasons I didn't give it an excellent were the showers were timed you paid $.25 for 8 minutes and they were FREEZING! I have never had to pay for a shower before so finding the change to make my shower last was a little difficult. The other thing was our campsite wasn't level we were leaning downhill so trying to make breakfast was a little challenging besides that we really enjoyed our stay here. - NKatieA

Sites were large but extremely difficult to back into. Sites were shaded but not a lot of privacy from your neighbor. Pool was clean, lake was stocked with fish. The few planned activities they had were fun. Staff was friendly. This is connected to a mobile home park, but no problems there. Roads were paved so good for bike riding. Nice playground for the kids. Not sure if we would return as I think we could find better CG's in the area. - autismmom

Typical pretty good KOA. Easy in and parking in the pull thru was easy. Utilities were good and easy. This was just an overnight stop. We had dinner at the Country Store on sight which was OK and convienent. I think it would be a good loaction for visiting Hershey but, we were just passing through. Would stay here again. - Larry Jenkins

We stayed twice in August. This is a lovely park that is very well maintained. Sites are clean and level. Bathrooms are clean and well maintained. Park is along a river and is very pretty. Right of the I-81 with convenient off and on. In park roads are gravel and well maintained with no pot holes etc. Staff was very pleasant and check-in and guide to site made it easy. Food prepared and delivered and ice cream shop for those who like same. Check-in is at 2pm and early check-in is $2.00/hr. We would certainly stay again. - sonofabaker

Our first time staying there and it was awesome. Played mini golf with wife and grands, had a bounce pad for the kids and great playground too. I know its hard to keep the small ones busy. The grounds were very clean and the roads were very easy to navigate with a large motor home. Also had their chicken dinner one night very good and easy after having a long day in Hershey. We plan on staying there again next year. - Charlie and Jan
