Knoebels is a place the whole family can enjoy! It is America's largest free-admission amusement park and also offers free parking, free daily entertainment and free picnic facilities. While at the park, you can take a dip in our 900,000 gallon Crystal Pool filled with refreshing mountain stream water. The pool area includes watersides, diving boards and a play area just for young children. You can stay overnight at one of two campgrounds that include cabins and over 800 campsites for tents and campers. In addition to over 60 rides, award winning food, swimming, games, and gift shops, visitors can add a round of golf at Knoebels Three Ponds Golf Club right next door to the park.

I haven't been to Kneobels in 17 years but I just went last weekend with the majority of my family. It is excellent to not have to pay to get in especially if rides aren't your priority. Rides are a priority for me, but for my parents, not so much. Other parks require paid admission and parking where you end... More

I love Knoebels! The parking and admission are free. You pay only if you want to ride. They have a good selection of rides something to please all age levels. This park is especially good if you have little ones because their kiddie ride section is awesome. The bumper cars are the best in the country. The haunted house is... More

Amazing place....an old fashioned amusement park in the middle of a forest...and...best of all, IT'S FREE admission! Parking is available right next to the park and it too is FREE! How do they make money, you ask? Well, you buy tickets for the rides you want and you buy your food in the many food stands and outdoor restaurants. You... More

We just love to take the kids here! They have the BEST Haunted House! The second best would have to be Ocean City MD on the boardwalk. Good food as well. They have Gator Bites (I don't really like them but hey you can say you tried gator!) ;) Our favorite rides are the Haunted House, The Carousel and Black... More

I loved the setting of this place. There were 4 really awesome rollercoasters! One that was trackless! Would love to camp here @ their campground . Would be a great place for little kids tons of rides. It is a dog friendly park, but I felt sorry for the dogs! Most of them looked hot and tired.

We look forward every year to spending time with family and friends at Knoebels Amusement Resort. The park, rides and food are all excellent. Second to none.

I just can't think of enough good things to say about this park! I have been visiting Knoebels for nearly 40 years and each time it only gets better! This past weekend we stayed in one of the Knoebels rental cottages and we had an absolutely unforgettable time. :) My mom used to bring us (6 children) to the park... More

What a wonderful, fun amusement park for the entire family. Young and old gather at the park, families have come here for years to enjoy the rides, games, food, and shops. No entrance fee, no parking fee, "old time" prices for all the rides and games. The food is traditional and down-to-earth, local and authentic. The park is located in... More
