Very nice! I loved the fact we got shuttled to and from the park. That was fantastic! They pick up trash for you, and the office is very nice. They had great activities all day and movies at night. I gave a 4 star because, there is a train that goes through all night long, that was hard in a tent to ignore (they do put tents furthest from the tracks) AND they close the pool a little earlier than we would like. By the time we got settled they were already closing it. All in all very nice.
From the moment we pulled into the campground, I could tell it was going to be cramped. RVs were lined up like it was a parking lot and the tent sites were not much roomier. Sites were way too close together and offered absolutely no privacy. People were very loud, in general and past quiet hours. That, combined with the loud freight train running by all night, made it nearly impossible to get any good sleep. Neighboring sites were obnoxiously yelling and fighting and blasting music. I agree with the other reviewer who said that security should have been patrolling for those behaviors instead of guests having to call to get them shut down. I also was disappointed that there were not closer bathroom facilities given the volume of tent sites (we were down by the river). I did like that someone came by to pick up garbage/recycling and that there was a frequent shuttle to the park, and the bathroom/showers were nice and clean and roomy, but that is honestly it. I do not plan on ever coming back to this site. If you do plan to camp here, I recommend getting several sites together so that you have some space and privacy, but don't expect to get any real sleep.
Just returned from our first trip to Hershey campground and found the staff friendly along with a nice store and pool, but other reviewers were accurate in saying the camper sites were very crowded and tight. Roads were not passable within the camper area and there were pot holes throughout filled with water. I simply felt like we were crammed in there like sardines. We also had loud music and vocal partiers across the way from us and I ended up calling security twice after midnight (quiet time starts at 11) in order to finally get some sleep. Would have been nice for security to patrol rather than have to call. I didn't go inside, but the cabins did look nice and new. Bath houses were clean but average. Disappointed also that there was no dog park. All in all, I expected much better quality from a Hershey owned facility. I doubt we'll be back unless there are major improvements.
This campground is TOO crowded for tenters. Some sites have clear boundaries and others you're left wondering what picnic table and fire pit is yours. If you want a private camping experience, this is not the place to go. To the resort management: label your picnic tables and firepits, it just takes a little bit of spray paint. The resort boasts 2 full size pools and a kiddie pool. One of the "full sized" pools has a depth of 3' at its deepest. Also, during our stay only one pool was open for use (in addition to the kiddie pool). We were told the second pool was for overflow. The positives - the shuttle service is godsend and honestly the only reason why we'd come back here. We never waited more than 5 minutes and it ran all day. We were able to come and go to the amusement park with no worry. The bus drivers were super friendly and helpful. I also want to note that a lot of people complain about the train and it blowing its horn every half hour during the night. I think this is a bit over dramatic. While it did blow its horn, it wasn't every half hour and it wasn't even every time it travelled by. Our tent was smack dab in the middle of the resort with the train in clear view and this in no way was a negative to our stay. The resort was clean, they took care of the garbage for you and despite it being a full house there was always hot water for a shower. We are 50/50 on if we'd stay here again or if we would recommend it, the shuttle service is the best part but that can be utilized at any Hershey resort.
Staff is courteous, plenty of amenities, pool, game room, walking, not having to pay to park to get into the park is another perk. The location is less than desirable in over half the sites. A train passes every 30 minutes at night just 15 feet from the campsites and it WILL rattle you awake like a New York City apartment. Most sites do not have full hook ups so the line for dumping upon departure can get long.
