Lake Glory is fine plus if you want full hook ups that's your only choice, J&D is great also so both good choices. We will stay in the Canadian section if we stay at the Knoebels campground. We were there last year the weekend they opened Flying Turns, neat ride but sometimes a long wait, next year they are getting another new coaster. Great park and great people, enjoy

We are are staying at lake glory for the first time this year over July 4th. Full hookups was the deciding factor. Can't wait. Sounds like good reviews from everyone here.

We really enjoyed our weekend camping at Lake Glory this past weekend. The first site that was assigned when I made the reservation ended up backing up to the entry road & camp store and with little dude who makes breaks for it- it just wasn't a good fit. Since they were uber empty, we talked to the front desk and they gave us 5 or 6 full-hookup sites that we should fit on and told us to go ahead and take our pick. We ended up on site #104. The employee mentioned that it was a "pull in" site (I guess for motorhomes- we would have just pulled out through the grass). But I backed in to give us a little more privacy. Close to the playground and shuttle pickup. We really liked it and I'll try reserving that site again. The downside was that our hookups were in front of the camper, so I didn't hook up sewer (not that I needed it for a weekend).

To be honest, given this site- I think I liked Lake Glory better than J&D. The only thing I would have missed if it were later in the year was a pool. Lake Glory didn't seem to have one.

We had 11 of us in the camper on Saturday night and had a fantastic time. It was my sister's blended family and mine. Knoebels was fantastic, though the lines for the new roller coaster were averaging 2 hours. If you want to ride it, get there when the park opens and make a beeline for it. We didn't and missed out. Guess we gotta go back!

Don't plan on Lake Glory getting a pool, from a source I know they don't want one there as with it you are less likely to go to the park. Lake Glory is still a nice place especially if you need full hook ups, glad you had a good time.

Wish I'd have known you were in my neck of the woods, I'd have bought you a beer for all your good advice on the Companion! Hope you had fun, and dressed warm--it's unseasonably cold here in PA at the moment. Must be all the global warming...

Ha! I wouldn't subject anyone to the calamity that is our group when my sister's whole clan is along.

Yeah, it was chilly but we had a good time. Both data were warm enough for short sleeves when the sun was out and sweatshirt weather when the clouds were out. It was toasty warm by the fire Saturday night.

That's what I figured about the pool and reasoning. It'll be our future decider between Lake Glory and J&D and that really comes down to how long our trip is- if we're just doing park days, we'll do LG. If we have down day(s), we'll do J&D.

I heard the same comment about Lake Glory and the reason it probably won't have a pool. We booked site #108 this year and we stayed at the same site last year. It's right across from one of the bathhouses. It was really roomy at the site too. This year, we will have 4 adults and 4 girls under the age of 5! Not sure what I was thinking when we invited some friends this time. It will be a good time though either way since we will be camping.

I noticed a huge difference in the crowds at the park from Weekend to Weekday so maybe we will get lucky with the roller coaster when we go. However, it will be summer so who knows.

Good follow up on the experience from this past weekend, as always it's appreciated by all.

Which 7 & 9? They repeat their numbers, so you need the road name, too.

I think mid-week will help crowds-wise, but I'd still try to hit the roller coaster right away. I was surprised at how fast the Twister coaster was. It was fast for a coaster and impressive for a wooden one at that. Unfortunately I don't like wooden coasters (I feel like they beat you up) and was "forced" to ride with my teenage niece a second time so she wouldn't have to ride alone. Once was good for me.

That said- I could ride Stratosfear over and over and over. I never tire of that ride!
