Charming campground located at the back of a neighborhood in Carlisle, PA. Website said they had a two night minimum but they were most accommodating during a one-night stay while awaiting service for a mechanical issue. Also concerned about campers welfare at check-in during a severe weather event - gave us instructions for nearest safe building and loudspeaker announced a timely tornado warning. Never happened but appreciate the diligence. Full service hook-up was as advertised-20,30,50 amp. OTA TV stations available. WIFI was good. Site was level but was varied throughout the park. This is a big wooded campground with about 30% seasonal/permanent residents in very nice sites. Nice extras included: pool, mini-golf, jumping pillow and hand dipped Hershey's Ice Cream - YUM! We camped at Western Village RV Park in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here many times as it is so very handy from the highway and a good distance between destinations. Park is very nice with lots of trees. The sites are a little tight but ok. Very clean and pet friendly. Nice store. Our biggest complaint is the price which is $47.00 per night in October. We paid much less at a 5 star park further south. Overall though we swallow our pride and pay the price as the park fits our needs in every other way. Nice pool too and fun activities in summer.
Granted, we were there July 4th week, but we called in MARCH to reserve a site. We asked for a pull thru and quiet. We got RIGHT by the pool entrance where there was CONSTANT foot traffic, kids and noise, no pull thru and packed in like sardines. These were the smallest and most crowded sites we have seen in all our travels and the people kept their campfires going 24 hours a day (It was 85 degrees!). Wait until at least sunset people! An absolute haze settled over the whole area and everyone and every RV smelled of smoke. The gentleman (gatekeeper up front) was very nice and helpful. Carlisle and Gettysburg were fun. I just think they need to spread out their sites a little and move the permanent campers away from the pool area.
