2 night stay on way down south. Campground is next to highway so there is road noise louder the closer you are too it. There is a military base close by so occasional fly overs. We were told that Air Force one does touch downs here at times. Site gravel, level, flat with full hook ups. Lots of trees for shade. Pool is still open. Staff friendly and helpful. - CindyL

Good Location, nice small park. My site was very unlevel, both downhill and side to side. Most of my neighbors had their tires off the ground, trying to level. - RVDolly

This is a nice clean park and a great place to overnight. We are just passing through on our way to Maine, but I've heard there are a lot of attractions in the area. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here longer in that case. The staff person on duty was very friendly and helpful and offered to lead us to our site, but the roads were smooth and easy to navigate so we declined her offer. Our gravel site is neat and level. All utilities are nicely placed for easy access. The electric service is steady with good voltage. The water pressure is good, the sewer port clean and accessable. Refreshingly after the last park in which we stayed, the WiFi service here is quite good. Also Verizon service in the area is strong. The park cable TV worked well. Didn't try the OTA service. I agree with another review, they offer a very nice dog play area here. All in all this is a nice place to visit. We would not hesitate to return. - Airstreamers

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

OMG. Talk about false advertising! A pool--yes but has been in disrepair and unusable for years. Miniature Golf- yes but the putting greens have more moss than carpet and weeds adorn the course. Clean restrooms-- ha ha ha ha. Talk about gross, smelly and out of date. Even the washing machines are dirty The sites are grass covered and with the recent rains the big rigs are leaving huge ruts in the ground. No wifi or cable. There is a huge area with dumped nonworking machines, yard waste and even a 911 Porsche ( please someone rescue and restore that car). On a positive note, the owner is nice and tried to be accommodating for us. There is also a new dog park. Other than that, nature is reclaiming this park. Such a shame. - Dinky1

This is an older park. The spaces were large with grass all around. Grass was well mowed. The park needs updating. The showers were clean but need improvements.Electricity was stronger than at a lot of parks. Quite a lot of seasonal campers. - Rkserv

Run down park capitalizing on it's excellent location. Almost impossible to level in a park like this. Had to disconnect water because there was so much air in their pipes. Everything is in a state of disrepair. The electricity worked! - Todd Fogelberg

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

My wife and I stayed with our two dogs in a back in gravel site with full hook up (W-S-E 30a) plus cable, wi-fi, firepit, and picnic table. Due to the time of year we were there the park was not full but quite a few campers. The staff was friendly, courteous, and helpful. Those campers nearby were respectful of others property and very friendly. There were some deluxe sites with a grill, patio, swing, and chairs with a plastic picnic table instead of wood. Interior roads were gravel and on going work was to add camp sites and landscape surroundings. - KEN9XL

Excellent campground. Staff was very friendly. We only stayed one night so we didn't use any of the facilities, but the campground has a lot including mini golf, dog parks, and a fishing pond. We had no trees so Satellite was no problem and we had good TMobile service. - Chuck Shrader

This is a Thousand Trails site so you have to arrive early in order to get the best spots (1 pm) . They don't reserve sites for you. For everyone complaining about driving around and not finding spots, if you get there early enough, you won't have a problem.
This campground is located behind two farms and behind some woods, so you won't be able to see it from the main road. That is great because there was no traffic noise around. When we arrived to the gate house, the woman there was very helpful in recommending sites area for us. We chose a pull through site for our 30 ft TT. There is ample space between you and your rv neighbor and no real obstructions to park. The trees are not in the way of the parking space. Each site had a lamp post so that at night, you could easily see where you are parked but they place them low to the ground so as not to add to light polution. The roads are a mix of gravelled area and asphalt. They have an overflow area for those with extra cars and those with tow dollies. This keeps the campground from looking like a junk yard.
The store hours are a bit strange, with some days being open until 2pm on some weekdays. Their store has a good supply (just the essentials) but their best selling item is Hershey ice cream (so good!) You saw many kids out with their bicycles and rec center with a pool table.
The campground is very safe at night, no noise disturbances at night and we had no problems having our kids wander around by themselves. The batthrooms are nice and are designated shelters in case of severe weather. The pond is not suitable for swimming and has no swimming signs around. Nature decided to reclaim the area and the fish have an abuncance of kel to live in. It is a wonderful fishing and boating area.
All in all, it was a lovely campground - Yamileth Karina

When we were at Hershey before we picked a site on the hill of Loop H. The 50 amp sites in that area don't have the $3 a day surcharge that is charged for all the other 50 amp sites in the campground. However, I must confess we got a bit tired of the big hill. For this stay we decided to check out Loop B. We found a great spot and felt we made an excellent choice. About all but the sites in Loop A (which has some very nice spots) are full hookup. Honestly, it isn't hard to find a nice campsite in this Thousand Trails. Every interaction we had with the staff was positive and we appreciated their helpfulness. My only complaint is the lack of internet connectivity. My Verizon signal was poor leaving me with only a fair data connect. Campground WiFi is only available at the Activity Center and it is even slower - think old time dial-up speeds. It isn't that the campground hasn't tried to supply WiFi. The area providers simply aren't willing to come out to the campground. My satellite TV signal was easy to dial in. There are many interesting things to see and do in the area as well as a nice pool and other facilities right on the property. Lots of shopping and restaurants are within 30 minutes. It is easy to see why Hershey Thousand Trails is one of the most popular campgrounds in the system. We are already thinking about our next visit. - nazpaz

Hersey RV now Thousand Trails Campground. This is a time share type park. They will try to sell you memberships. $60p/n full hook up. Nice park, dated. Bathrooms 3 star. Good water pressure, must continually push button to get water, no fans, no air, gets hot and humid. There are exhaust fans but none work. All gravel roads and parking areas. Young lady showed us to spot, very nice. They warn on handouts about power loses and not to keep dogs in RV. We did lose power for several hours, went on generator (be prepared if your furbabies in RV). We were in 30' TT and had adequate space. Lots close together. Do not miss Strasburg Train ride and museum, well worth the 45 min drive. - orangebeachbum

This is place is a "residential RV camper park" - it is dirty, run down, ducks everywhere (and their droppings), the staff was not nice at all. There are many "permanent" sites that clearly people live in all year and they are deplorable. The swing sets were covered in rust and barely work, there is a bridge over the pond that is ready to sink any minute. Go anywhere else than this place. Not impressed, and will never return. - Lspajm

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

This campground is as basic as it gets, besides just going out in the woods. It it mostly for scuba divers. This was a large rock quarry that has been filled with water for scuba diving. They have sunk a few neat things, like a bus, to make it interesting. I stayed here several times for my scuba certification. You basically just pitch a tent or pull your RV into the woods. No electric, no water besides at the main bath house. The biggest complaint is that in the middle of the night, there is a train that comes right through the middle of the campground, usually blaring its horn. It is very scary to be woken up by. The ground shakes and it feels like the train is going to run right over you. But, if you are there to scuba dive, you don't have much of a choice for places to stay. - justthe6ofus

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
