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.

Perfect place for family picnics and reunions. Variety of rides, free parking, lots of picnic tables, restaurant, variety of snack bars if you don't want to bring a picnic. Wooded areas to get out of sun, large pool. This place has it all and reasonable priced rides. Local history exhibits also.

Cheap camping....we always go for the week. Great food at reasonable prices (my favorite are the sweet potato fries). Open for breakfast...what amusement park does that? FREE ENTRY AND PARKING. Family oriented rides, Homemade fudge, The Christmas Store, For a reasonable fee you can go to the pool, Lots of free shows and concerts.

I have visited Knoebels at least once annually since I was a little girl. With free parking and free admission, each family member can be involved in the Knoebels experience in their own way, whether riding all the rides or just a select few. Safe park and a great getaway for the day or week.

Knoebels is awesome! It has tons of rides for kids and adults- and it has some not typical attractions, like a spiral slide, 2 haunted house rides, ball pit, a "trackless" wooden toboggan coaster, a carousel with brass rings, and one of the longest train rides I've ever been on. The log flume has 2 drops, which is unusual. It... More

Knoebels doesn't have too much for big kids, though the one roller coaster is very good.... It is really fun for little kids and it's a nice old-time amusement park for the family.
