“Chocolate-covered camping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

This campground is great for families. They have so
Many great activities for kids of all ages. My husband and I stayed here for a Halloween at Hershey weekend and had a great time. They do trick or treating and had the characters their (which is a great photo opp).
Campground staff was super nice and very knowledgable about the area. They came around while we were packing up and took our trash so we didn't have to haul it out somewhere.
If you are going to the park-use the shuttles they take you right to the front entrance. Stroller families: Make sure you are bringing a stroller that is easy to collapse as you will not be able to take it in the bus. Also, be prepared to wait for the shuttle when it is busy as you cannot stand in the isles of the bus.
A few warnings: this campground can flood big time, so be knowledgeable about your site. Also, there is a major freight line that runs RIGHT next to the camp ground. If you are a light sleeper ASK for a site farthest from the tracks as possible. Wow can it be loud!
Really a nice clean campground and we plan to stay here again. Thanks Hershey for a fun weekend!!

I had a campsite next to the creek/river. Constant banging from a factory or something...this was 24/7. Terrible for peaceful camping. I came here for FarmAid...the ONLY thong that was good were the shuttles to the venue. The gift shop raped you on wood and supplies. $5.75 for a bundle of wood and $8.47 for a bottle of lighter fluild!!! Efin insane...rapists!

Be prepared for a loud bang every 25 seconds, 24/7 from the quarry on the other side of the river. We couldn't even sit by the campfire because it was so noisy. It makes it worse if you are in a tent. It would have been nice if the campground reservationist would have told us about this when we ma

Rented the RV, loaded the gang up, and made several stops on our one week RV journey. This was the last place we stayed, and it was great! Perfect for all the kids, lots of fun activities, EXCELLENT early access to HersheyPark, and a really good deal overall. We will be back!

My family and I are new to camping however, my first experience with this campground was staying in a Cabin. The cabins are basic cabins that are clean and conveniently have a refridgerator/microwave, air conditioning and a TV but you must bring your own bedding/pillows. It is NOT a hotel. There are no bathrooms in the cabins and you will be using the bath houses. What's great about styaing at this campground is the opportunity to not only get into the Hershey Park earlier, I think around 8:30AM but you also get to go into the park the night before your full day admission ticket ie, buy a ticket for all day Saturday and you can get early access starting at 6:30PM on Friday night. The campground also provides a free shuttle service that conveniently runs every 15-30minutes to and from Hershey Park to the campground. By the way the shuttle is aircondiitoned and the drivers are very helpful and friendly for those of you with strollers.
Last week we stayed at a campsite with electric and water hookup. We had a really great time. I think the spaces are pretty spacious and the bath houses are exceptionally clean. The campground staff does an excellent job of collecting garbage bags put out at your campsite. The pool is nice to cool off and is your standard "hotel" pool. The store offers items that you might have forgotten. I do want to mention that there is a railroad that runs parallet to the campground and the trains do run frequently. The trains are loud and have been known to run in the middle of the night. This is the only negative of this campground and honestly it isn't that bad. You almost get used to it. I would not let this deter you from staying at this campground because for the value of the site it's a great deal. Also, for those of you who like craft beer I really recommend checking out the Troeggs brewery that is about 5miles down the road past hershey park. Check out TripAdvisor for reviews on that, you won't be disappointed and you can bring your little ones to the snack room/bar.

First of all this campground was a piece of crap I was forced to walk my bike. He thought it was dangerous but he was riding with a dog in his golf cart on his lap. This stop is no fun at all I should know because I'm a kid. There is nothing to do at this campground not even mini golf. There was a river going through the whole campground for about 5 days since it rained. The store was not organized. To sum it all up this was a terrible stop never come here.

The campground is very convenient to the park. Shadeyrest bathrooms were very clean. Pool was nice, camp store was well stocked. Sites are close together though. It is noisy though, with trains running around the clock and continuous pounding at the nearby quarry.
