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 visited in August 2015 with people from work. I like the idea behind this type of amusement park and it is cool that it is so old. Some of the rides were fun but there aren't that many for older people. Knoebels is geared towards younger kids, so if you have them, this will probably be a great place... More

Well-known, family park. Let's hope it stays that way!! If word really gets out, and it becomes over run with too many people, it won't be the jewel it is. Keep it simple and quaint Knoebels.

I totally love Knoebels; it's free parking, free admission, you can bring your (well behaved) dog; the food, the awesome variety of rides, everything. I look forward to going here at least 2 to 3 times a year (I live across the state) so you know it's worth the trip. They have a variety of food items but you can... More

I have been going to Knoebel's Grove since I was a kid and it is the best amusement park ever. It is different than Great America, Hershey Park, other larger name parks. It is in a rural setting, but has all the best rides. Admission is free, pay for rides separately. Makes it great for older adults to go and... More

I live about two hours away from Knoebels, but I only went there for the first time last August. I have been to Amusement parks like Busch Gardens and Hershey Park. I haven't been to Busch Gardens but went to Hershey Park only a few years ago. It has gotten so expensive at Hershey Park and I haven't been back... More

We live in NJ and this park is so worth the drive. No parking fees, no admission fees, buy tickets or wristbands. Lots of shade trees and benches throughout the park which make it great for the older folks. I am a roller coaster girl and throughout the year I think about riding the Phoenix coaster..it is that awesome!! Food... More
