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. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Motorhome.

Not the prettiest park or the most welcoming. Have only seen teen workers since being here. Our next door neighbor has been here 12 yrs!! So be aware there are permanent residents here. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Wonderful KOA! We pulled in for overnight stop and check in was fast and easy. Small snackbar located in the store that had food, milk, cold beverages, etc along with camping supplies. It was clean, organized and reasonable. Short drive off I81 with fuel station close by and fast food restaurant. In our evening walk we saw river running along one side of the campground with spots along the river. We were able to get a satellite shot. Quiet well managed park. Pull thru space and did not need to unhook. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Motorhome.

This was an overnight stop so we weren't looking for a lot. Access was easy with the big rig, the check in area has good space for parking. We were escorted to our site which was adaquate however there was a pile of trash in the fire pit. The rest of the campground looked ok. When we checked in, the person behind the counter might have been having a bad day. We were basically ignored for an awkward minute while we stood there waiting. Other than that, we didn't interact with any employees. Overall, it's easy to access. Interior roads are adaquate, the site was OK and the location for our travel plans worked. The store is well stocked and the snack bar delivered to sites too. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Motorhome.

We used this Park is a base camp for exploring the region. In particular to spend some time at Hershey Park. This is a very nice KOA journey and it certainly has a lot of in and out traffic. But there were a number of units like ours that were here for the long holiday weekend. My only complaint is our "patio" site really wasn't very good. As a pull through site it would be fine especially if they added a little more gravel. With some short bouts of rain the gravel that was their turned a little muddy. The patio area was not properly aligned for a long motorhome pull through. While you could argue there was certainly enough room to re-orient the motorhome to use the patio we would've been substantially out of level because of the sloping nature of the site. They have a wonderful store, office, deli to go. They deliver to your site. The feature roasted barbecued chicken and pork products. They also have tremendously delicious soft serve ice cream. We ordered some chicken wings and those were very generous in the serving and well-made. In fact in comparison to the Buffalo region they were under priced for what restaurants. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Motorhome.

Hershey Park and region are great adventures. However, HP is a haphazard design got an amusement park and EXTREMELY hilly. Try the ice cream (soft serve) at KOA, very nice treat.

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. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This park adjoins Swatara State park. There is a trail from the park that is 2 miles to the Appalachian trail. Swatara has many additional trails. Short trip to Hershey park/Giant Center and Outlets.

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. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Motorhome.

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.

We stayed 3 nights as part of a longer road trip. Nice camprground with a country store including ice cream and prepared food. Broasted chicken fans will love the reasonably priced chicken and wings. We purchased tickets for Hershey Park at the store, same price as online, and got free shuttle service to the park. The owner drove, and gave a guided tour of the area on the ride over. Very nice guy. Only complaint was the water pressure was a little low and variable, but not enough to cause a problem. I was able to use my satellite, but that would not be true for all sites. We stayed in a 43 ft motorhome and I'd stay here again. For smaller rigs, there are some nice campgrounds along the creek. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Motorhome.

Access is okay. Roads are dirt and gravel. Limited cable. Utilities okay. Sat TV not possible. Spotty wifi. There is a big camp store which is also a restaurant. Large off leash dog park. Other areas to walk the dog are limited due to gravel and crushed asphalt on roads and in field. The cost shown is for a premium site which provided a cement pad, two dirty chairs, a dirty table and chairs, and the dirtiest grill ever (the grease cup overran onto the tank). Large puddle of grease on the pad (shown to the guide who just shrugged). Cable was inop and had to fix the terminal. Seems the owners put their money in annual plants rather than structure. All in all would not stop here again. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Motorhome.

Although it's right off the highway, it's overpriced for what you get. The concrete pads were cracked; campsites were dirty and not well maintained. We camped in a 38' fifth wheel. Will not return. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The staff at this KOA were very helpful, accommodating and nice. We had a reservation but our site was right up against the bathhouse with sparse bushes to sort of separate the site. Also a very large KOA sign attached to on the bathhouse was on 24/7 lighting up our site and many others nearby with a bright yellow glow all night. The electrical box was very rickety and unstable. Many of the sites seemed very close together. It was convenient to the hwy and easy access. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Travel Trailer.
