Owner description: Knoebels is a place the whole family can enjoy! It is America's largest free-admission amusement park and also offers free parking, free daily entertainment and free picnic facilities. While at the park, you can take a dip in our 900,000 gallon Crystal Pool filled with refreshing mountain stream water. The pool area includes watersides, diving boards and a play area just for young children. You can stay overnight at one of two campgrounds that include cabins and over 800 campsites for tents and campers. In addition to over 60 rides, award winning food, swimming, games, and gift shops, visitors can add a round of golf at Knoebels Three Ponds Golf Club right next door to the park.

No parking or entrance fee. Very clean, nice picnic area, good food. Restrooms easy to find. Very peaceful with so many trees. I'm not a ride person so it was nice having to pay only for the few rides I did enjoy.

Knoebel's Amusement Park is a small amusement park that will take you back in time before the emergence of the large theme parks. At Knoebel's, you purchase tickets for the individual rides, the lines are never long to get on a ride. Additionally, there is plenty of picnic areas so you can bring your own food. It is safe to set up your table and go off to enjoy the rides and entertainment.

Addtionally, we like to arrive early in the day to get a parking place right by the picnic area and also to go to the main eating venue to enjoy a wonderful, inexpensive breakfast.

If you grew up in the days before large theme parks were even thought of, you will love Knoebel's. Affordable fun for large families.There is no entry fee...you pay by the ride.

Since you can pay per ride (as opposed to a flat entrance fee at most other parks) worked out v well for us since many in our family didnt want to get on many rides. Even otherwise its v affordably priced from rides to food to everything

Price aside, an awesome family destination in its own right - good range of options on everything from rides to food, something for all ages and lots happening throughout the day. We spent 6 hours there but one can easily spend more

This is a place to be if you are around Harrisburg, PA. FREE admission, free parking, and you will only pay the rides (pay-as-you-ride) kind of a thing. It is a place to take your family and not spend a lot on admission fee or parking. Plenty of food and entertainment! Worth the visit.
