We have camped here a few times and each time things are getting progressively worse. A lack of organization from the owners & employees often results in a less than impressive camping experience. Choose your site carefully- some are very spacious and nice, while others are very small and do not always accommodate the size camper they say it will.... More

My spouse selected this site to be close to Gettysburg, which we were. However what the owners consider a pull-thru I do not. I have a 40' fifth-wheel and was directed to site #92, this required a right turn, then a left angle turn between a pavilion and a camper, then another left, then yet another left with a snake...

Great campground, very lazy campground, friendly staff and campers. Office closed (6pm) but grounds manger helped us and led us to our site. He then helped me get it parked. ampground clean nice sites. Most sites full hookups some without sewer. Store hours limited. Pool and Playground great for children. It was close to Car show. Good Sam member.

We had a good time at Deer run. The ladies in the office were very friendly and they even created a cable cord for me when mine wasn't long enough. The kids had a blast at the snack shak, pool and basketball court. Although many of the sites are close together, ours was nice. The only issue was when my... More

We were with a Good Sam group. Fun was had by all. Campground ownership is very caring and working hard to improve all of the facilities. Nice playground, fun walks along the Appellacian Trail, and so much more. I look forward to going back, in the summer, with their nice pool, and my grandchildren.

This review is long overdue but no less sincere because of that. I thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2013 and my stay at Deer Run is a distinctly positive memory from that summer. Pennsylvania was mentally the toughest state for me and I found myself on the trail late one evening between shelters with some weather coming in. I called... More

We really enjoyed our visit to Deer Run. It was close to all the places we wanted to visit, ie Gettysburg and Hershey, without being "in town". The prices were reasonable and the staff was friendly and went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. Having visited in the fall, the closeness of the camp sites was not... More

Everbody was great to be with.The owners brought the campground a long ways from before. I love the haunted trail and all the trick and treating for the kids. We go every Halloween weekend till the season ends,plus a number of times through the season. I think everyone should give it a try.

The staff was awesome, amenities were as promised. Deer run is a great family camping resort to relax and enjoy the outdoors. My children enjoyed the activities. My wife and I attended the band festival and afterwards- we booked our site for the 2015 show. Awesome show with entertainment from 5pm Friday through 7pm Sunday.
