My family of four visited this park in October 2014 with two other families. We are tent-campers and attended during a Halloween weekend. We enjoyed it and would go back, but this time with our eyes a little more open. Yes, prices are high. $115 per night for a standard RV site. (We paid for the RV site because we wanted to be away from the inevitable noise of the "Haunted Trail.") Our site was great for tent camping and flat (although not all were flat). The events were fun, but you had to keep yourself on schedule, as the typical open period for any one activity was about 90 minutes. Our rate included everything except the zip line attraction, which had to be purchased separately (we received one free pass for each child in our party.) The only practical concern I had was the level of dissolved solids in the available site water. Boiling water from the tap created salty precipitates in the pans which negatively impacts cooking. Bring your own water for food preparation and drinking. Also, the snack bar is not open during the fall season, which left one family in our crew scrambling to find places to eat nearby.
Nice big dog park
Dec 02, 2014 by: MollyMick from Virginia
This was a one night stay at a 50 amp full hookup site. Entrance to the park was winding and narrow. We made our reservations online a couple days before so check in was easy. We were then escorted to our site. The park was mostly empty but they parked all the rvs together side by side on one row instead of giving us a little space. The sites were gravel and long enough to fit our 40' motorhome with tow but the site was also very narrow. Opening the slides made it feel like were right on top of the rig next to us. There were also few trees where we were parked so no shade. There was a really big dog park near our site which our dogs really enjoyed. Everything else was closed for the winter and there was construction going on nearby and lots of noisy trucks and heavy equipment drove by often. I also was never able to connect to their wifi. This is a destination park that's really busy during high season. I would probably stay here again if in the area.
First time at Full Hookup Facility
Oct 24, 2014 by: ionesagem from Three Springs, Pennsylvania
It was our last camping trip of the season. Since it was our wedding anniversary we decided to splurge on a facility that offered a full hookup. We also wanted to "research" a fun place for our grandchildren's yearly visit each summer. The fact that there is a Golden Corral minutes away sealed the deal! My first pleasant surprise was the fact that although I was unable to get the website to cooperate with me I was able to call and speak with a very nice person to reserve our October reservation. The second surprise was that we got a discount since my husband is 60. When we got there our ranger was very nice and answered my husband's questions about hooking up our cable, water, sewer. Luckily we had already purchased the mandatory elbow weeks before we got there as the store was not open. Also not open was the game room. As I had hoped that Pac-Man or Ms Pac-Man was inside I was really bummed out. Luckily the cable worked fine! Not working fine was the WiFi so packing my laptop was not the good idea I thought it would be. That first day was very good. The next day the game room (no games I was interested in) and the store (fantastic - I could stay in there all day) were opened as the number of campers increased. I think that the possibility of things not going to be opened should be addressed on the website. My husband and I did not know that school was out those two days and that there would be so many children there. I know it is marketed as a family experience but I had hoped that those weekdays we had reserved were going to be couples friendly - LOL Children were up earlier than I would have expected and they took shortcuts through our "lot" - also invading our space was the camper next to us - the bush separating us was in his way on his side but he was there just for one night....This place is still a contender (of perhaps the Luray, VA one) as we know that our grandchildren would love it. The cabins, cottages and lodges are very beautiful and we are considering leaving the camper behind. All of the staff we encountered were very nice.
Yogi Bear Halloween Weekend
Oct 22, 2014 by: Aimee H from Nottingham, Maryland, United States
I really love coming here! We have been for 8 years in a row for the Halloween weekends. They are doing a lot to update the park and provide new activities and attractions. My only complaint is that it has gotten so expensive! It is expensive as it is, but they used to offer Thursday night free for the Halloween weekends if you paid in full by December 31st of the current year for the reservation for the following year, so that made it more affordable. Sadly, they are no longer offering that and the price for 3 nights in a cabin is just too much and this past year was our last. We had a lot of fun though! Thank you!
Family camping trip.

Nice family camping trip. Have a lot of fun activities for the kids. The Haunted house was one of the best i've ever seen at a campground. The rustic cabins should have microwaves and toasters added. Nice campground but very expensive!
