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.

Went back again this past weekend and have to say I enjoyed it again. Took our granddaughters for a quick day trip and everyone had a great time. Easy free parking , free admission and we had more than enough tickets left over from last year (still have a ton left) so basically it was a free day. Kids loved... More

We go every year and spend 2 days. Very family friendly and lots to do for all ages. Dry and wet rides. We went on a Sunday and Monday and there was about 1/3 of the people there on Monday. We stay at the Hampton Inn in Danville. Good hotel with an included breakfast about 20 minutes away.

Great rides for all ages and shade in kiddie section. Careful with the no admission deal - you can still spend a fortune as each ride is individually priced and it adds up!

I've been here a hundred times literally. I really like the haunted house. I know it's smoke & mirrors, but that doesn't make it any less creepy for me. I also like that the bridge shows water levels when the park was flooded including the levels for Hurricane Agnes in 1972, the flood after the blizzard of '89, and Hurricane... More

How can you go wrong. Free parking and admission. Free ride from parking lot. Plenty of rides to choose from. Variety of food and costs less then the normal amusement park food. Dogs are welcomed too. Kind of a step in time with plenty of rides.

I cannot stress enough how beautiful this place is. Friendly staff and guests. I did lots of research on this place and found none of the complaints to be true. This is the first of many years to come and make memories. Thank you Knoebels.

Knobles takes you back to a time where amusement parks were for the family, games food rides are wonderful, admission to the park is free and so is parking, there are two options for rides.. One is a wristband that allows unlimited riding, the second option is the purchase of a ticket book.. Rides range from 1$ to 4$ per... More
