Let me start by saying that the location is excellent. Very large park, great lake and plenty of activities, they had an small amphitheater that hosted movies. However, as camping goes, people are right next to each other and there was no privacy. I agree during the day and right up to 10pm it is quite loud. We had people walking and kids riding bikes through our campsite because of the trails. But we did have a good time. We will never go back here to camp.

There are plenty of snakes in the water here, but otherwise this is a great place to go have a relaxing picnic with the family or friends. Just be sure that you pick up your trash when you leave! Leave it nice for someone else to enjoy.

The trails are well maintained and easy to get around. Just need a discover pass. We had a great time.

Over crowded, loud, full of kids, and EXPENSIVE!
We looked at the wrong price online (I mean you'd think the tent camping would be lower than RV camping...) and when we got there we discovered that we'd have to pay $24/night instead of @$12/night. We than asked if we could use the $12 campsite and was told that that space is only for people who 'walk in' and no, we could not park our car in the front lot and walk in. This is completely ridiculous because it is almost impossible to WALK to Millersylvania so they are essentially forcing everyone to pay the higher price while there is a reasonably priced site that is completely empty. This was my birthday camping trip and it had to be cut from 3 nights to down to one due to price and it wasnt even a decent night of camping.
There was also a ton of people here with loud kids running around everywhere. One RV even had an improv concert or something. If you dont think you'd enjoy camping at Chuck E Cheese than dont camp here. I would only pay that much for a campsite if it was isolated in a cool area.
I also so many, many people complaining about the closed down lake activites. They advertise boat rentals and on the last nice week of the season, the rental place had a sign that said 'Be Back Shortly'....and it was up all day.

The park is a good place to camp or to picnic. Not much grass so get used to dirt. Had small picnic with family.
