Great park in a great location. Very well kept park. We had a nice quiet site in the H loop. All the staff we dealt with were very friendly. Pool looks good but of course closed for the season. We did enjoy the hot tub a few nights of our stay. - RLKeller

This park is so peaceful and really clean. We have a small rig with a wet bath, so the facility showers are important. These are probably the cleanest I have ever used. The park is quiet and the staff are very friendly. - RV Path chosen

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

An ok campground with very well organized access roads. Asphalt entry way leading to office with well organized interior one way gravel roads. Exit road is on opposite side of campground from the entry road. No issues for big rig access. Mix of pullthrus and backins with a good pitch from the access road. Gravel sites with grass patios. Picnic tables, fire rings, and shade at some sites, but not all. Not a lot of space between sites and some are pretty crowded together. Very unlevel sites with a lot of wheels off the ground. Power ok. Did not use other utilities. No problem with satellite access at most sites. Campground wifi good signal with 1.4Mbps; Verizion 2 bars with 12.2Mbps; T-Mobile 4 bars with 22Mbps. Did not see any recycling on site. Looks like good road bike riding in the area. We would overnite here again. - SeaLandSkyPhoto

This was a nice campground with pleasant staff. We were there on a Sunday evening in the fall so there were not too many people. Apparently fall weekends are booked though. The restrooms and showers were clean and private. Gravel in sites was a little too large to our liking so harder to pack down when leveling. Sites were fairly level for the most part. There are some sharp turns and very large speed bumps to go over on the way out. We understand that some RVs bottom out so be careful. This is about 5 miles from exit 100 off I-81. It was very quiet and a good stop for one night. - Cape Cod kayaker

Nice pull through spots, no shade in some and others are shaded. Dog park area is super far from the actual trailers, it was also extremely buggy. - Parents of Malamutes

Our favorite overnight stop when traveling to and from the East coast. Convenient location. We can usually find a site although it was really packed this weekend. Some sites are tight but most including ours are great. Bushes in between sites. Patio. FHU. - Patnal

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

This is a NO Thrill campground, sites are nice and level.
A lot of seasonal sites - Kevin211

Stopped here on a whim on a Friday afternoon holiday weekend because we did not want to get into traffic around Harrisburg. If you are looking for a packed trailer park with sites as close together as possible. I was surrounded by 4/5 fivers that partied until 2:30 AM. Most expensive and worst campsite ever in 50 years of camping. - Ronald Meadows

We stayed here in our 40 motorhome. Sites vary, but we had a level site on hard packed gravel. Entrance from the south is easy, but from the north you have to drive a mile past then loop back around. Seems to be a lot of seasonals, locals, some groups came through during our stay, but everyone was very friendly. Well maintained, a lot of hard working people here. Our Verizon cell and mifi worked fine. The ferry wasn't running during our stay due to heavy rains. There's nothing close by in terms of restaurants or groceries, but if you plan ahead that shouldn't be a problem. The location on the river is beautiful with mature trees, very quiet at night once the road noise dies down. We would stay here again. - Roaming Together

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

Stopped here for one night on our way to Connecticut. Staff was very friendly, gave us a pull-thru site that was dead level. Didn't even have to disconnect from tow vehicle. Sites for transients were narrow but well maintained and power, water and sewer hookups were very convenient. Very well stocked store, very reasonable prices as well. If you stay, you've got to check out the bathrooms! They are spotless and more like home than a campground. Very pleasant stay and will definitely stay again. - Gumby52

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

It was an easy on and off from I-81 North. Cost was $38 for cash and $40 for credit. Friendly staff and ok areas to walk dogs. - gmasharp

We stopped twice once on our way northbound on our second day of traveling and southbound on our way home. Owners were very friendly. We found it the perfect place to stop due to it's proximity to I-81 though as others have mentioned it is a bit steep coming down hill to the entrance but my older Tundra was able to make the descent and climb with ease on both visits. Next time we plan to stay for at least a day to relax and enjoy the pool. - Tom Killackey

We stayed here for just one night as it is close to I-81. We were very pleased with the look of the place, felt like we were in a state park! Very heavily treed so our site was kept cool in the hot weather. Only 30 amps so you have to be aware of that, but it was a pleasant place to be. We were in a pull-thru that was long enough to leave our toad attached behind our 36' motor home. They have a nice big pool on premise, too. We would come back. - dbcordello

Heavily wooded in deep valley, hence the extremely steep grade from the Interstate. Staff friendly but no TV or WIFI due to tree coverage. Sites are close. Larger unit may have issues. Good overnight stay going North/South. Just remember grade - steep. - KilaH

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

I kept asking if our 35' fifth wheel would fit; the man avoided answering. I would have really liked it if he told us that the campground was RIGHT before the 13' 6" bridge. We were at a standstill staring at the bridge when we noticed the campground sign. We managed to fit, but it was not easy. The campground road is uneven, dirt/gravel, narrow with low branches and wires strung at a nail biting 13' 6". The three riverfront sites that we had to choose from were not delineated; it took us a while to figure out what was a spot. There were water spigots here and there. There were more wires strung across the 'sites' that were definitely lower than 13'; they were attached to boxes and outlets nailed to trees providing 15 amp electricity. We backed into the only one we could maneuver into as far back without hitting the wires. Luckily we did not stick out into road, but leveling was the most difficult we have ever had to do. Even just walking around was tricky. We ran an extension cord about 50' to get our electricity and about 30' water hose to get water. Full hookups means that you can flag a guy down to pump out your tanks. In general the place was unkempt and littered. Being on the river was nice and peaceful (except for the train that is about as close as the river). They provided a fire ring and picnic bench; it was way too buggy for us. There were lots of birds; we got a great view of a woodpecker who landed on our window. - MichelleKry

This is an older campground and as the name says a fishing camp located right on the river. The store sells bait, tackle and rents boats, canoes and kayaks and will provide transportation for float trips. The campsites obviously get flooded and the electric, water and cable are raised above flood stage. The sewer system is individual holding tanks at the sites which are pumped daily on weekdays and there is a dump station. Electric is 15 amp. The cable TV had a good variety of channels and worked well. Local over the air channels were limited to one network and two other channels with poor reception. Verizon has a strong 3G signal. The roads are shale and dirt. Some sites have concrete pads and a picnic table. There is one old cinder block building with toilets and showers and some portapotties. - trailertraveler
