Very nice park, most sites are pull thru. - Kevin211

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 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

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

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

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

Depending on your preference this place is either OK or a nightmare. Take a narrow road to the campground which has a somewhat steep dirt road to a treed area to your spot. The actual spot was roomy and although tight I made it through with a 36' trailer. It is only an extra mile or two from Knoebels campground and way more private and secluded for sure. This is a no frills kinda place. Porta potties and something similar looking that was a shower. That wasn't a problem since we use our own facilities. There was no campground host which only mattered when I tried to find the dump station. 10 minutes and a phone call later I found it. I probably would not camp here again opting for a nearby place with full hookups. If nothing like that was available I might stay here again picking it over the much more crowded and packed looking Knoebels. If you do go make sure you get there from south using All Saints Road. If you come from the north the entrance is a Y and is tight to make without a trailer! - Colorado Kamper

I find that my regards for this campground continues to go down over the years as the price for it as continued to go up with no improvements done to amenities provided.
The campground's key feature is that it is right next to the amusement park, and Knoebels Amusement Park is an amazing place, a well loved and maintained throwback to a time gone by. This isn't Disney or Six Flags or Cedar Point, this is a park like your parents and grandparents visited. But I digress, this review is not about the amusement park.
The campground is also like campgrounds your parents and grandparents went to, but at a modern price. Sites are often cramped, rarely level, and offer only electric, though water is available and they have four dump stations. Site all also have picnic tables and fire rings. Check in is quick and easy, the park is operated by people that know their business and are used to high volumes of traffic. The staff is very friendly and do their jobs exceptionally well. Shower houses are very dated but also kept very clean and never lack in hot water. The tiny pool was closed on this visit. While I could go on and on about the price, I still love this campground for what it is and the convenience it offers, and will continue to return. - Cyclonic

Hands down one of the worst campgrounds I have ever been to. Most sites are so unlevel you must use tons of blocking to use your stabilizer jacks. No seats on the toilets except for one bathhouse. No camper etiquette people walk through campsites, loud music after quiet time security was called twice and did nothing. The dump station was good but too many people trying to access 4 holes at the same time must cross busy road that others drive way too fast on. Well stocked camp store. The amusement park across the street is incredible and the only reason I would ever camp here. Way overpriced for the amenities provided. - Flying Flamingo

PROS: Near amusement park. Strong 50 Amp service. Verizon LTE data had two bars. CONS: High price, paid $54/night, outrageous. Spent over $200 at the park. Why so expensive for so few services. No water hookup. No wifi. No sewer. No OTA TV signal. Relatively small campsite. A little trash at the campsite. - tdrager

Very well maintained campground very close to Knoebels. This was the last weekend they were open. Kind of upset you do not get to choose your site. We would have preferred a site near the giant open field that backs up to the road, whereas people that were actually put there preferred the site we had instead. It is kind of noisy due to the traffic on the road but that would not have bothered us. Sites were pretty close to each other. You'll get to know your neighbors. Acorns fell off the trees and hit the camper all day and night. Playground is a bit too small, but the fishing pond is pretty. Most of the nicer "waterfront" sites are reserved for their seasonals. We weren't looking too much for an amenity filled campground but preferred a full hook up campground close to Knoebels. We will most likely stay here again next year. - SSport

We stayed at J & D Campgrounds the week before Labor Day weekend when local school districts were already in session so there were quite a few sites available. The "A" loop appears to be dedicated to transient campers while the bulk of the Park has seasonal campsites. ALL of the sites are well maintained! The grounds and facilities are immaculate. Our site was level, spacious and much larger than our rig. The full hookup was modern and well maintained and had been meticulously planned for ease operation. Excellent water pressure, sewer connection was threaded and the cable tv was excellent. We did not make use of the WiFi as there was excellent Verizon connectivity. The picnic table and fire ring were well cared for. All of our contacts with the staff were excellent. They were friendly, articulate, knowlegable and seemed genuinely concerned to make our stay comfortable. - Lou Casper

Clean, quiet campground. Very well-maintained. J & D is only about a mile or so from Knoebels so it's conveniently located. It's close to a two-lane highway so there will be noise from that but our fellow campers were quiet and respectful. Would have given a higher rating if not for the fact our site was TIGHT. We have a 26' nose-to-tail travel trailer and I had to back it almost all the way to the rear of the site to be able to angle my truck off the road. That precluded our using the fire pit which was too close to the trailer. Side-to-side was also tight - we couldn't extend the awning all the way out and you can forget about moving the picnic table - there was no place to move it to. I would, and probably will go back again but only if I can avoid one of the small sites. - SimCarstairs

We stay here once or twice a year, generally our first trip of the year and then in Fall. We enjoy Lake Glory as they have decently sized sites. We enjoy Knoebels Amusement Park which is the primary reason we stay. There is a shuttle to the park which we have not used but appears to run frequently. Parking at the park is free so I am fine driving over, only 5-10 minutes away. We stayed at CB25 this last time, might be the largest site in the park, corner spot with lots of grass around. Really my only negative to Lake Glory is the price, seems a bit high for the area. - 3HappyCamperrs

The check in was easy but we came in at night fall and have never stayed in the campground. We were given a map and told to follow the directions. We decided to drop the car and golf cart at the office due to not knowing the turns and site. I followed hubby to the site in the golfcart and thought I parked on the side of the road to assist with the RV backin to the selected spot. After accomplishing the back in to the site a security guard came up and was very RUDE, stating "I had parked in the middle of the road". I stated, I'm not sure about the middle of the road but we are not familiar with the campground and really we should of been escorted to the site. He was still rude to the point where I told him I would meet him at the office to speak with a supervisor on his behavior. I ended up speaking with the owner of the campground and he assured me this was an unusual event and he agreed that an escort should of been offered since it was dark and we had never camped with them. Otherwise, the campground was nice but it is overgrown around the pond. Even though we requested a pond view and it shows on the map we were on the pond, it was over grown with trees/shrubs and had no view. The area is a very nice secluded/quiet area and would stay in the area again at one of the other 2 campgrounds that are near by. I would say its a good spot for a one time visit or maybe a family gathering. Just needs some trees/shrubs cleaned out and hopefully security has been coached on customer service. - Jaretaz

We held a rally here for 30 rigs, the staff was wonderful in working with our needs. Beautiful campground not far from the amusement park, shuttle will take you to the park or just a short drive. Would be nice to see a pool added sometime but doubt that will happen. Plan to return to hold another rally next year. - DBLR
