This was our first visit to the campground for Halloween weekend. The place is well kept and clean. The owners and seasonals are very friendly. We did not use the playground or the showers because it was very cold. The sites are separated but on the smaller size. I would try to request a specific site next time. The owners seem to put everyone next to each other rather than spread out. The owners also seem to be extremely understanding and welcoming to children and adults with special needs. Immediately upon walking in the store with my son with autism, one of the owners spoke directly to him and cleared a spot on the counter so he could place his toy there and play. This made my day, actually. There is a fishing pond across the street and a short walk down the road that is well stocked. Activities offered were organized, well attended and fun. We plan on returning next year.
We only stayed here overnight. It is part of the Gettysburg National Battlefield and part of the horse tour. The sites are a nice size, some shaded and some not. Internet service was poor and no cable available. The pool was very clean and warm. Bathrooms and showers were nice and the laundry room was one of the best I've seen. We may possibly return.
The grounds of this campground were immaculate. It was bought by Morgan RV several years ago. This is built above Endless Caverns, and an awesome flashlight tour is available for campers only. The showers and laundry were clean and great to use. I would like to give this campground a "10", however, there were several problems. Everything is downhill from your campsite and they do not rent golf carts. You are in the Blue Ridge Mountains, so there are large mountains. The store was stocked with souvenirs for the caverns and NASCAR supplies, not campground necessities. This is something Morgan RV needs to correct. The pool looked nice and clean, but it was not heated. The pond is well stocked with catch and release. The activities available for the kids need improvement as well. I would definitely return here, and hope that the improvements are made.
I normally don't like "resorts", but this place was an exception. The sites were very spacious and shaded. Only the "super sites" provide a fire ring. What is that all about? As several previous reviewers have mentioned, I do NOT recommend a super site. They are smaller and not shaded. They only provide a concrete pad, a BBQ grill and a fire ring. The showers were pull ring and the dryers in the laundry room didn't dry well. There were four pages of rules for swimming, etc. The most I've seen. The water slides were awesome for kids and adults alike which were also guarded on top and bottom for safety. Staff was helpful and friendly. We stayed here during the week and the activities were good. There is an ice creamery on the premises. There is a river for fishing and the lake is stocked and has a water trampoline for jumping. The quiet and tranquility of this place was very relaxing. However, this place is huge and I can't imagine how busy it would be on the weekends. There would be long lines for the water slides and I'm wondering if it would be as safe, even with all four pools. We would camp here again if visiting the area.
This is our second time visiting the park. I highly recommend staying up on the hill, anywhere on Raven Road or Falcon Loop if you have a big rig. The sites are shaded, well wooded and large. It is a long walk to the pool and activities, but the atmosphere up there is well worth it. The staff is very friendly as are the seasonals. The new kid fun zone area is only open for 1 1/2 hours, twice a day and these times are during lunch and dinner. Pool is extremely crowded on Saturday. These are the only reasons I rate this park a 9. There is a nice pool side cafe only open on Saturday during select hours. There is a beautiful pond for fishing and paddle boats at the bottom of the hill. Activities for children and adults are enjoyable. If you are camping on the hill, reserve a golf cart ahead of time. There are only a few to rent. We plan on returning yearly.
My last review of this park rated a 9, but, unfortunately, I only give it a "8" this time around. My family and I still love to visit this place and we get three campsites together with friends. With the addition of two blow-up water slides, which are well staffed, the excitement increases. However, this weekend was a holiday weekend was a full house with campers in the overflow as well. The small pool was SRO. It is a good thing that the park added the sprayground and water slide. Many campers walked around with open beer bottles, on activities such as a train ride at 10AM and candy bar bingo. Really? Candy bar bingo and you need a beer? If people chose to drink continually all weekend, the rules state it should be concealed. My kids are teenagers and know better, but still. I don't think any place should have "overflow" camping. Too many people. The management did clean up the playground each morning from, again, those slobs that choose to drink and throw it on the ground. Management also responded quickly to loud noise after quiet hours. I think management should have been more aware and enforced the rules about the drinking off site. This completely turned me off. There still needs to be swings added in the playground as well.
This is our second visit to this park. It is very clean and well-managed. There are two playgrounds that are a lot for fun for the kids. When we registered, we were not satisfied with the site assigned but the staff is very agreeable to you choosing another site. We found one of the few with a little bit of shade. The sites are very easy to back into and set up; however, they are NOT spacious or large as previous reviewers have stated. The area we stayed this time, site 707, did have quite a bit of room but most of the sites are very close together. There are several bathhouses, all very clean, and a large laundry room. The cafe is open daily with good food and service. There is a bus available daily for a small fee to drive you to the Metro which you can then take into DC. The staff is well informed about Washington, DC as well. We chose to return here due to it's convenient location to Washington, DC. I don't think I would return in the summer as there is limited shade. The Wi-Fi available is free but the service is very undesirable. I was unable to pick up much of anything. If you want to visit DC, this the park to visit. If you want to actually camp, I wouldn't recommend this place. No scheduled activities, no shade, smaller sites, hilly, but a great pool.
We have been here several times in the last few years, but this is the first time on a holiday weekend. This park was almost filled to capacity but there were no problems with noise. The owners and seasonals were very friendly as well. We love the twice daily hayride around the park and many activities. Pool was clean but cold after all the rain and there is a snack bar in the pool area. The sites are a shaded and a nice size with a few pull throughs. The roads have fresh gravel down to make bike riding easy. There is a camera in the playground and pool area if you want to keep an eye on your kids. We will return again.
We stayed up on the hill. These sites are spacious and private. It is a long walk to all the activities and the pool, but worth the walk. You can rent a golf cart-first time we did while camping as it is too hilly for bikes. The pools were clean. Didn't have a chance for the kids to participate in activities as we were visiting Lancaster in the area as well. It is only about 15 minutes from town if you need supplies. Staff and seasonals we ran into were very friendly. We needed to leave early because of Hurricane Irene and there was no problem receiving a credit for a free night and credit on golf cart rental as well. Security always available. Request to fix TV reception was answered and explained immediately by a very nice gentleman. We will return here to use our credit-we want to stay on the hill again, use the family friendly pool and participate in all the activities as well. Showers and rest rooms clean. however, dryer in the laundry room needs to run twice if you want to dry all your towels.
This is located on the Susquehanna River, which is nice. Extremely small sign at entrance-if you blink, you'll miss it. This CG is located right next to a factory, which runs 24 hours. There is also a train operated by the factory as well. Very noisy. There is a beautiful pond for fishing, bumper boats and paddle boats. There are activities daily, even during the week. You can get an activity card for the kids, which is the best deal, to rent all the bikes and boats. Seasonal do not always follow the rules and decide to walk through your site. We were in the YD section by the pond-not much shade, but nice besides the irritating factory noise. River sites are probably your best bet for noise and location. Staff was friendly and helpful. I don't think we'll return here as there was very little shade. Internet service was very poor for a cost of $2.00 a day. If I need to pay, I should have service. Located about 1/2 hour from Knoebels great place.
Sites were large but extremely difficult to back into. Sites were shaded but not a lot of privacy from your neighbor. Pool was clean, lake was stocked with fish. The few planned activities they had were fun. Staff was friendly. This is connected to a mobile home park, but no problems there. Roads were paved so good for bike riding. Nice playground for the kids. Not sure if we would return as I think we could find better CG's in the area.
This campground has a wonderful, guarded activity pool and activity lake with a lap pool as well. There are planned activities daily. The grounds are very clean, many shaded sites, and 4 playgrounds. Restrooms clean, quiet hour enforced, friendly seasonals. This is the 3rd or 4th year we have been here and the kids still enjoy. The sprayers by the pool are very sensory for my son with autism as well. The roads are paved and not too hilly. We had a pull-through site that was quite spacious. The only reason this did not get a ten, is you need to reserve for three nights if you book early and the cost is high. Otherwise, the best CG we have seen in NJ.
I have reviewed this park before but feel the need to again. With the addition of the spray area, this park has ALMOST everything you need for a fabulous camping experience. The awesome spray area, organized activities every hour for children and adults, train rides with a bear, friendly seasonals, polite and helpful staff, spacious showers, large and shaded sites, cared-for roads, and clean environment. However, there are not enough showers or toilets for the amount of campers, and there are no swings at the playground for the little ones. Other than that, we have a great time everytime we come to this campground. With the addition of swings, this park receives a '10'.
We came here early season, and it was a rainy weekend. Not many seasonals around but the ones we ran into were really friendly. The campsites were huge and shady, but very sandy. There is only one restroom and it is near the main activity area, but it was kept very clean. The showers have a pull chain, but the water does get warm. The activities that were available were fun. The pool and spray area look nice, even though they were not yet open. Playground was small, but well equipped and SHADED. All sites are shaded and most pull-throughs (can you tell I like shade?) Even with all the rain, we didn't have any flooding in our site only a small puddle in the road. Seasonals and owners were friendly (for a change). We hope to return.
Well, we returned here for the holiday weekend and were rather disappointed. The playground is very nice, shaded and therapeutic, however, it was ruined by the kids of seasonals throwing their empty bottles all over the place. During the entertainment, adults also left their beer cans all over the tables and grounds. Recycling and garbage cans abound, but they are not used. It is very dusty as well. I would recommend the wilderness area, where we stayed. It does not have sewer hookup, but you are away from the seasonals and you are between the river and the fishing pond. This area is also shaded. These sites are a nice size. Golf carts drive fast at all hours and don't move out of the way. Nice for fishing and canoeing but very expensive. $55 plus $10 for each child. Activities were available, but only on Saturday during this holiday weekend. There is a stream and pool for swimming. No shopping for at least 25 miles. We may possibly return to go tubing.
Rating this CG a six, is really being nice. The pools and bathroom are very clean. There is a water slide as well. The campsites are small and unkempt. The grass looks like it hasn't been cut in weeks, the roads are very bumpy, and there are a lot of regulars. Also looked like there are people that live here year-round. Not everyone cleans up after their dog either. Most of the CG is next to a highway and a trailer park across the street. Most of the staff is friendly and very helpful. The activities are designed for children ages 5 and younger, although my older girls chose to participate anyway. This CG is a great base to visit DC. They provide van service at a small fee, if you choose. However, it is not the place to actually camp. The playgrounds are nice and one is even in the shade. Keep in mind that there are few trees in the campsites. This is the first CG we visited where there was no place to hang a clothes line. What are you supposed to do with wet towels?? We will not return.
The grounds were well kept and the bathrooms clean. I would NOT recommend the new section. There is absolutely no shade and it is right next to the road. The older section is well shaded but hilly, and not far from the big pools and spray area. Pools are clean and small pool towels are provided for you. Activities are available during the week, however, you need to sign up in advance!! This prevented my children from doing any activity at all. Playground, marina and horseback riding are nice. Again, sign up the day before for marina and horseback riding. Laundry is free and there are phone extensions to call, IF you are not in an RV site. WiFi is available at a cost, and you will not get cell service. Store is stocked with the basics. This is a good location if you are visiting Montpelier, but other than that, it's not near too much in the Shenandoah Valley. There is the "interview" for "time share". No pressure, however I wasted my whole morning in this interview. We will not return.
This is the first state park we camped in. The grounds were beautiful, with nice sidewalks throughout making it handicap accessible. The showers and bathrooms were immaculate. Everything is far away, being that this is a state park. The sites in the North East loop were on the small side offering little shade. There were some activities available, but also a distance from the camping area. Nature center was informative and workers were very knowledgeable. Bay was nice for crabbing, lake for fishing and the Chesapeake Bay was on the grounds for swimming. The recycled tire playground by the bay is a must see for kids. There is a campground host available for any questions that you might have. If you choose to swim in the bay, be sure to wear water shoes as there are many rocks.
Again we returned for the wet and wild weekend. The best part is watching the grown men act like teenagers with the water wars. It is never ending!!! Many activities are available and the pool is clean. During this weekend, there is no water pressure and the bathrooms were horrendous. I think the good times had by all, counteracts the condition of the bathrooms. Our site was a nice size and we have requested it again. However, there are no swings for the little ones at the playground.
After arriving at this CG, I found it difficult to see how anyone could rate it any higher than a 6. It is close to 495 and a lot of area happenings and the bathrooms and showers are spotless. The entire park is very shady which is a plus. However, the roads and sites are difficult to navigate and small with lots of hills and rocks. We were staying here for an extended period of time while my DH did work in the area. It is not particularly family friendly since we found a very small pool and an even smaller playground with no activities for the kids. When we visited the Kimball Farms, as recommended on the CG website for the bumper boats, I was informed that it was $7.50 per person for 7 minutes!!! I am also surprised that no prior reviews mentioned the fast train that is heard all day and night. The staff was very helpful and did bring you to your site but was not very cooperative when we asked for a larger site due to our extended stay. There are many people that come and go for a one night stay with RVs. There is great WiFi service, a few cable TV stations and anyone who absolutely needs a satellite signal (not us) will not find it here. If you do chose to visit, I do recommend going to Canobie Lake Park in Salem, NH-about 45 minutes NE.
Again, I rate this a 9. Owners are friendly and activities fun. Pool is large and clean and playground is great for my kids. Seasonals are friendly and fun-loving as well. We went with friends, first time they were here with their granddaughter-they plan on returning. Nice job Country Oaks!
This CG continues to meet our expectations. We come here several times a year and are beginning to be thought of as seasonals!! My kids love all the activities offered and always bring a friend. All the sites are well shaded and roomy. We are given sites as requested, near the back of the CG. You can hear the Sat. night DJ throughout the park, but the music will stop promptly at 10PM. There are two pools that are lifeguard protected. No golf carts allowed except by the owners. Owners are friendly and come check to make sure the site is okay. We will continue to return here.
We stayed in the Wilderness area. This was very nice between the river and a fishing pond with fountains. However, the road was soft, making it difficult to maneuver our rig. When we asked to get the grass in our site cut, the staff responded quickly. This area had a great view of the bridge and gazebo. The Wading River is nice to wade, canoe and kayak. Be sure to bring your swimsuit any time of year. There were nice activities for the kids, even early season. The playground was very therapeutic for my special needs son. Also was a nice train ride through the campground. Staff was very kind and friendly, as were the seasonals (for a change). The pool looked very clean, although it wasn't open yet. Well stocked store, which was important because there was no convenience store within a 30 minute drive. Good arcade. There were lots of mosquitoes and bumble bees so be sure to bring your bug spray. We are planning to return again. Kids (and mom) enjoyed the geese and goslings.
This is the third or fourth time we have visited this campground. The sites here are all a nice size and shaded. The CG is large with lots of hills. There is a lake, pool and indoor pool as well as many activities for the kids. Unfortunately, on this Halloween weekend, it rained, again. This was our 2nd year we got rained on. There is a nice Halloween party-one for younger kids in the afternoon and one for teens and adults in the evening. The staff is friendly. Beware of parking police. There is also someone at the front gate checking your vehicle before entering. We will return again. Overall, a nice CG with lots of activities for the kids.
After reading other reviews with EVERYONE mentioning the EXTREMELY SMALL campsites, I can't imagine a rating higher than a 6. These were the narrowest and shortest campsites I have ever seen. It is very difficult to position your rig so you are not in your neighbor's window. Then, there is barely enough space for your picnic table (ours was right under our neighbor's slide-out) or find a suitable place for the fire ring. The Woodland section was wooded, but that's about all. You are right off the highway as well and hear the shuttle bus to Hershey and the freight train all day and half the night. The shuttle to the RV show was free and convenient, but there was no schedule. We can't understand how you need to wait 45 minutes for a 10 minute ride and all the driver does is make a loop. The shuttle to Hershey was much better and dropped you right at the entrance. We were only staying here for the RV show and Hershey park. I could not imagine actually "camping" here where you sit outside all day long and read a book or light a fire. If we return, we would stay in the section that does not have full hookup (Shady Rest) and enjoy having a little space between campers.
The water slide and splash pool were fantastic, couldn't get my kids out. Activities are available for the kids daily, including a train ride. There are quite a few seasonals, with golf carts driving very quickly. Not much shade. If you do not pay the fee for a "super site" you are not even provided with a fire ring! No fires allowed until 4PM. All of the seasonals spend most of the evening in their RVs,so, there is no "camping" here. We enjoy camping and spending the night outside, and we love to smell BBQs all day. I saw no one cooking outside although it was VERY hot. Upon check-in, our site was flooded due to 5 inches of rain. The staff checked about every 15 minutes of so to check on drainage, and it drained rather quickly. Playground was nice and bathrooms were well maintained. Store well stocked. Although there was NO shade, we may return here for the water slide.
Well, I cannot give this CG a 10, because there are no planned activities for the kids except a movie and there is no shade at all. This is a park designed for you to go visit DC. This is a bus to bring you to a metro stop, or it is a short ride by car. The pool and bathrooms were immaculate and the staff helpful. Staff did take almost an hour to come and clean out a fire ring that the previous campers did not. The sites were very small as well. Campers spent a huge amount of time in their campers as well, although it was quite hot. Playgrounds were a lot of fun and there was a nice splash pool as well. We might return if we travel the area again.
The entrance road is very long and bumpy and the store is very far from the campsites. The campsite we were originally assigned would have barely fit our 31' trailer, so we found a pull-through instead. This site was quite large and shaded. There is no sewer, but honey wagon service is provided at a fee. The playgrounds were run-down but fun. There is a fee for just about everything from not putting out your fire on time, to checking in early and using the lights to play tennis. We enjoyed fishing in the river but would not return. Staff is friendly and gives good directions. Not many activities available for kids-most of the seasonals were elderly people who enjoyed fishing, crabbing and the gospel services.
Well,we just returned from the BEST WEEKEND we have had in a while. Adults and children alike enough this wet and wild weekend. Sure, there is little to no water pressure at times, but I have never seen two grown men and a bunch of children have more fun in my life. The adults have more fun than the kids. Golf carts and trucks come around and hurl the gallons of water at you from many different devices and a million different angles. And, you defend yourself!! (Well, at least you try!!!)The sites are large, although ours was a challenge to get into, and nicely shaded. The pool is clean, and the staff came quickly when we couldn't locate the hookups. The one drawback to this park is that the playground does not have any swings, only a cool zipline. This is our second year here for Wet and Wild, and we will be back again-we need more ammunition to defend ourselves against the Land Shark.
This is a nice, small CG. The roads are dirt but easily accessible and the sites are large, shaded and very level. The pool/snack bar area rates a 10-nice and clean and good prices at the snack bar. Nice variety of activities and my kids loved the tetter-tooter and playground. Everyone was very friendly, staff and seasonals. Store was well stocked. Not many stores in the area so this is important to us. We will return.
This campground is clean. However, one of the reasons we chose CGs is for the activities. Again, these were cancelled and there was only adult bingo. We needed to go off the CG with the kids to keep them busy. This is a negative for us. But, it is close to Wildwood and we had some nice blueberries to pick. I wouldn't come here if you need activities for the kids. The pool was nice and clean but very cold. Nice playground as well.
This campground is one of the larger ones I have been to. Our site was very difficult to position our trailer in so we could open the slide and the awning, but we did. The pool looked awesome, unfortunately, it rained and we did not use it. The playgrounds were great and therapeutic for my son as well. The game room was a nice size and kept the kids busy during the rain. Cable TV was not available in our site, and the antenna didn't pick up anything. Store was very well stocked and staff was friendly. Nice birds to watch as well. Kids activities were limited. We might possibly return as the rain kept many people away and we didn't get to use the pool with the slides. Bathrooms were very clean, but didn't have paper towels or blow dryer to dry hands.
The campsites were nice and big, with lots of privacy. A major downfall are the big hills, even leading up to the pool from our site. Quite a distance to the store with lots of large hills as well. The museum tour was interesting but not many activities during the week for the kids. It's a long ride in from the main highway, but the scenery and the campsite itself were worth the wait. Just a lot of hills-if you didn't have a golf cart, getting anywhere was quite difficult.
The campsite that we were in was quite large and nicely shaded. There are a great deal of seasonals, but most of them are very friendly. We have been here several times,and my children have made some friends here. We did not get the site we requested, but I asked for a site further away from the activities because I have a young child, they were very accommodating. The quiet hour is strictly enforced, although the DJ plays until 10 PM. Quiet hours start at 11. There are plenty of activities for my kids to do and they usually attend all of them. We like to return here, especially on the holiday weekends as it is close by for us. Bathrooms and showers are kept clean, but I STILL have to pay a quarter to take a shower.
I would give this "0" if it was available. We never camped here. I called inquiring about the activities available for children and I was told by staff "well, we don't entertain you, if that is what you mean". I've never been treated so rudely. We will never camp here-it looks great on the website. Too bad. Don't give the park an opportunity to have customers. I don't appreciate rudeness.
Now that I have returned from our weekend, I realize I should have read reviews before booking the place. We came here specifically for Mother's Day activities. Many of these were cancelled. Not enough staff? I saw quite a few staff members on the grounds. My kids said the activities were not real good and they felt rushed. The hayride was lame. The site we were registered for was impossible for us to get to with our 31' trailer. The roads were very narrow and near impossible to navigate through. It was not a problem to change to a better site. Camp store not very well stocked. Although this was not the best experience, we might return again when the pool is open. The playground was lots of fun. |Maybe more activities when the park is full. This weekend was mostly regulars with some of the kids thinking they run the place.
It's hard to rate this campground simply on this weekend stay. We chose this CG after Labor Day largely because they had organized activities. However, they were all cancelled because of the rain and "everyone was at Hershey RV show". So, the CG looks really nice, but we had to find something to do in the area. We usually camp on weekends so the kids have activiites. The kids did enjoy the playground and riding their bikes. The owners are very friendly, but, unfortunately, we were all disappointed because of the lack of organized activities for the kids. We would probably come back to this place so we get to use the pool and try the activities. My girls love crafts. Campsites were mostly shaded and good size but ours had lots of large roots from the tree, which was a little unsafe.
We have returned to this CG several times. The sites are small and close together but there are a lot of activities for the kids. Two playgrounds and two pools. My kids are busy all day! Showers are the only ones where I still need a quarter. Also, the showers have no curtains between shower and dressing area and no bench to sit on. And, I had to wait for the water to heat up. The owners are friendly and the seasonals are, for the most part, polite.
Nice campground-well kept. Many seasonals and the kids of the seasonals think they own the place. They are running amok and sometimes inconsiderate. The pool and splash pool were great. The main entrance is located directly on a main road and residents drive down the road at unbelievable rates of speed. Good activities for the kids but would not return.
This CG was immaculate and the sites are huge pull-thrus in nice shade. However, there are no planned activities for the kids. There is a program at 10AM and a show at 8PM but that's it. Everything is far away so there is a trolley, but the trolley doesn't necessarily stop in front of your site. The bike trail is very nice but very hilly. No fun to go back up. Our campsite was flooded (#190) after only one night of heavy rain. We called and nobody came to fix the problem. Because it was so shaded, our campsite never completely dried and we were there for a week. Also, the owners didn't seem to do anything about enforcing quiet hour. I called two nights in a row about the same campsite, and yet the noise continued. We enjoyed ourselves but would not return here.
The owners were very friendly. However, the roads were very rocky and hilly, difficult to navigate with bikes and big rigs. We did have a very large shaded site and the pool and playground were excellent. The store was not stocked at all-I couldn't even buy a roll of paper towels. It is also difficult to see the sign for the entrance. There were lots of activities to select from on the weekend for the kids and adults. If we didn't have the big problem with the roads and the store, this campground would be rated higher. Roads need to be repaired.
The owners are very friendly and good with the kids. The store is well stocked and the campsite was large. The kids really liked the turtle shaped pool. Many seasonals and the campground is small but everyone was very friendly.
We camped here for the first time on a Wet and Wild Weekend. Well, we certainly were wet. Wet Train Rides, and wet wagon rides as well as spray gun fights were on the list of activities. Staff and campers constantly came past your site spraying water guns at you. It was great!!!! The staff was very helpful and friendly. Also, even though the staff was out to get everyone wet, they didn't want to scare or hurt anyone. They were very careful in shooting my little 6 year old son with water so he didn't get scared. I would like to commend the staff for that. The whole family had a great deal of fun and we are already planning to return next year for the same weekend-we will be prepared with more powerful water guns to get some fun revenge on the staff!!! Regulars here were friendly as well. Very kid-friendly, lots of activities to choose from, sometimes 3 every hour. Pool was clean and heated too. We will come again.
