We only stayed one night at this CG so did not really explore it very well. Easy on and off the interstate (5 miles). Large CG with a variety of different sites - some back-in, some pull-thru, some full hook-up and some not, etc. Lots of seasonal sites. Very well kept and maintained. Lots of amenities, especially for kids - large pool with slides, dog parks, restaurant, even an arcade! (I think some of this is only open in the summer.) Plenty of room to walk your dog. We would definitely stay here on a future trip. - virginianola

Nice and clean RV park. Very well maintained. Significant full-timers/seasonal residents. Lots of kids running around who were respectful and no issue. Quiet hours were well respected. Had one of the nicer camp stores that I've seen. Cute little diner attached to store (didn't eat anything so can't say how good it was). Had multiple dog parks which were nice. Used the laundry services which were clean. Many activities going of for the smaller kids. Was there after the pool season, so can't comment on the pool facilities. Had slides which I'm sure would be nice when using the pool. Lot was pretty level and was next to large open space-- so had plenty of room for the dogs. Nice park with no issues. Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again if in the area. - StonewallFarms

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. - wdw

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

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

Check in was met with teenagers learning/teaching another employee the computer system. During check in we were not offered a map, a list of activities, nor any direction as to where our site was. The camp store is up flight of steps and was adequate. Firewood is sold in the camp store. There is an onsite walkup window ice-cream store which was neat. The site was level and needed no leveling blocks. Utility pole had electric, cable, and sewer. Water is shared with site 243 in front of your camper so ensure you bring extra length of water hose. Bathrooms are directly across from the campsite and are clean and shower water is hot and relaxing no matter when we went. The bathrooms do not have a power vent so several times we went in and the mirrors were fogged up. This campground has a very lax alcohol and smoking policy. Staff did not know what, where, and when the activities were going to be held without looking at the board of which the activities did not start on time anyway. The campground is a stop for the ferry boat which is very cool and walk on to Millersburg is very inexpensive round trip. It is well worth the money and time. The ferryboat can handle cars, vans and light trucks. We walked on. While in Millersburg there is Daniels Diner which has great coffee located a short distance walk at Center and Market Streets. Wife and I enjoyed sitting on the benches overlooking the river from the campground. We did not make it for sunrise or sunset however only could imagine that would be great to take in. Make sure you have everything you need there are no big box stores (Walmart, Home Depot, Lowes, ect) close. - Coleman Pop Up Family

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

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

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 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

It is an expensive campground for what you get, but it is very convenient to the Hershey attractions. Reservations require a two night stay but we only needed one night so we simply pulled in. There was snow on the ground, roads were cleared, but no sites had been cleared, so I had to shovel my site out.
Pull through sites are short and close together, with utilities at the end of the site. Fine for our small trailer, but some would have trouble. All utilities worked as expected. Site was gravel and level. Roads were good and easy to navigate. There is a very busy rail line next to and above the park, but except for the train horn blasts, the area we were in was shielded from most of the train noise.
Shower house was clean and well appointed. Only interacted with staff on check-in, and they were friendly. There were few amenities available at the campground this time of year. - Cyclonic

We stayed 3 nights and attended a concert at HersheyPark. The staff was great as was the office and camp store. Our site was a little short for our 38footer but plenty of room between sites.You will need extra water and sewer hose due to utility placement. Our site was level and graveled. If you are going to a concert or to the amusement park you can't beat this park. The shuttle bus saves you money and hassle from having to take your vehicle to the Park. It was expensive to stay here.. I don't know if they raised the price for the concert weekend or not. As always convenience and location is not cheap. Would definitely stay here if going to local attractions. - Shady Spring

Campground was perfect for our needs. Restrooms were clean and easily accessible. Electricity water cable TV and sewer were perfect. Best part about the campground is shuttle bus to Hersheypark. We stayed in a back inside next to a creek. - stanner17

We stayed here a couple of nights passing through. The campground is located on a river and is flat. Sites were gravel and we had a FHU back-in, which was easy to get into. Cable tv was excellent along with the other hookups. Folks were nice and we enjoyed our stay. We would stop here again if in the area. - jtl2

Love this RV park. We had our campsite right on Penn's Creek. It was nice. Shade, grass and blue stones. No dust. No much going on, but if you don't want to be bothered and just relax, this is the right campground. - Heidemarie
