WE rented the Deluxe cabin for two nights as we were going to Hershey. The campground was very clean. The start of the cabin was a little rocky as the bed had carpet beetles and we removed 20 or more stink bugs. When brought the the attention of the camp ground they sent someone with a vacuum and new bedding.... More

Since we mostly fly by the seat of our pants when traveling with our camper, we often get to a campground late, but always reserve in advance. When we got here we had a difficult time finding our paperwork. When we did find it, it was once sheet that had the map to our site, but was a copy and... More

We were a little worried when we read the negative reviews on the site but since I work in the hospitality industry myself I noticed that a lot of those reviews were from people who did not follow the rules (i.e. trying to check in early or had unregistered guests) so I figured that as long as we followed the...

i have read the posts about campers saying how they disliked this campground, and rude staff. Well, this was our first trip there. We were a 3 unit group, all with large fifth wheels. We reserved 3 big rig sites well in advance. I arrived first about 4 pm. The first person at the gate was fun, friendly, upbeat and... More

Arrived at 1:30pm. Check in 3:00pm. Charged 8.00 for early arrival even though there were only 5 campers on the entire site. Ok with us because we had not used camper in 6 years and had generator problem not allowing air conditioner to run. Had to stay at motel night before(98 degree weather). Traveling with 3 and 4 year old,... More

So, when we first showed up, we were a half an hour early. After a 19 hour drive, they wouldn't let us check in. But that wasn't the half of it. They actually told us we had to leave the property until 3. Even though it was like 2:40... Needless to say, I was irritated... So, we went back to... More

We stayed at a cabin without bathroom just before labor day weekend. Even though we did not enjoy Hershey park, (10 miles away) we will likely return here just because we liked the koa so much! This was smaller than some of the koa's we've been to, which made it quiet and kept the bathrooms very clean. We were fortunate... More

Wow..the deluxe cabins are fantastic. Yes, they are very pricy (like staying in a hotel), but it's like having your own little house. Our kids loved the set up of the cabins and enjoyed every minute of the nature around them (collecting rocks, watching the fireflies and of course a nice camp fire). We also enjoyed the pool, playground and... More

The only unfriendly thing that happened was when I first pulled up Staff asked me "where is your yellow window koa reserved placard", no, good afternoon or welcome to Elizabethtown KOA. I explained that I was just checking in and he proceeded to direct me to... More
