This was our first RV camping experience and we could not have picked a better place! Traveling with 2 preteens and a puppy, we wanted to find somewhere we could all have fun. The campground has many areas to choose from for RVs, tents, and cabins. We stayed in Pioneer Heights. Our site was close to shower/bathrooms (which were kept clean) and to a playground and open area to play catch, frisbee, badminton, etc. The staff at Hersheypark Camping Resort were all amazingly friendly and helpful. They took time out of their day to say hello in passing and were eager to answer any questions. Our children enjoyed the resort activities, which included Hershey Bar Bingo and outdoor movie nights under the stars. They also loved exploring the rivers. An added benefit is that one can purchase Hershey Park tickets at a significant discount. These tickets allowed us to enter the park the night before our big day outing at the amusement park; it also entitled us to one hour early admission prior to the park opening. Our children were able to ride 6 roller coasters before any lines formed. There is a free shuttle that runs from the campground to the amusement park/Chocolate World. The resort also has pools and a country store that sells many items, all at reasonable prices. We purchased firewood/kindling (and fire magic--a big hit with the kids) each night at the Country store. The atmosphere is perfect for families. We look forward to returning next summer! PS wifi is available---don't tell the kids---we made it a no electronics trip....
