“Large park with small beach”

Reviewed Jun 19, 2018

Overall Rating

This park is not too far from York, Pennsylvania. We picked it because it has a lake with a small beach. The water was pretty warm but it was very murky. We saw lots of people with canoes and they rent all types of watercraft there. We didn’t have reservations but we were able to get one of the best sites right on the water. It w... more

“A large campground with a lot of rules especially by having a dog”

Reviewed Apr 17, 2018

Overall Rating

The State Park and Lake is very pretty. The campground only opened two weeks ago so it was not very busy. However, I have a white lab and arranging a campsite was a bit of an ordeal. Having a dog requires phoning a specific person to find a suitable campsite vs those who do not have a dog and register on a honor system. The campsit... more

“Not very pet, people or wallet friendly”

Reviewed Jun 14, 2017

Overall Rating

We got in to GP on Sunday of Memorial Day. The ranger on duty was unfriendly and unhelpful - he needed a site number to find our reservation, we had to ask for directions to the site, a map of the park, and a map of the trails. He saw (and heard) our dog, but didn't tell us we'd booked and we're headed to a spot where dogs weren't allo... more

“Lovely, clean, quiet”

Reviewed Oct 12, 2016

Overall Rating

Quiet park in early October. No other campers in sight. Mild temps. Of 289 sites only 12 are FHU and they are in the Pet Camping loop which has a total of 56 sites. Plenty of trails to take the pups. Roadside grasses were groomed and had no major problems with ticks. Shower house was large and clean just a bit worn inside. We enjo... more

“Popular, Wooded Sites at PA State Park”

Reviewed Oct 21, 2015

Overall Rating

We stayed here for two nights in September while we visited the RV show in Hershey, PA. Convenient to the Harrisburg/Hershey area - only about a 30 minute drive. Beautiful, wooded campground. A lot of sites and they are close together. Only one loop for dog-friendly RV camping. Highly recommend driving through and looking at si... more

“nice lake for kayaks and fishing ”

Reviewed Jun 12, 2015

Overall Rating

quiet park on the weekdays, gets crowded on weekends - stay at the point near the campers beach. Small town just a mile away for quick pickups and town of Dover is only 6 miles and has full grocery stores. Love taking kayaks and grandkids to this park. Only a few full hookup sites and these are not on the water. Electric sites... more
