Pros: Clean restrooms, nice scenery, friendly camp hosts
Cons: Either Electric only or non-electric sites

I had a pleasant stay here the weekend of August 19, 2017. Great hiking, Pinchot Lake is beautiful, The power stayed on even during heavy thunderstorms both nights that I stayed here. It's an older campground so bigger rigs may have issues. I only have a 24 foot RV so I was good. The rangers, volunteers and camp hosts were all very nice to me during my stay.This park is south of Harrisburg and west of York, PA.

Edit- I did find out that this campground has a limited number of full hook up sites and is in the process of retrofitting a number of additional sites to be full hookup.
