Lake Glory and Knoebels

Just made reservations for a weekend at Lake Glory at Knoebels in Catawissa, PA. We went to Knoebels for the first time last year and really enjoyed it. We were actually there for a 3 or 4 days. We're headed back this year with my sister and her calamity of a family (the 2 adults and a combined 5 kids ).

We did J&D Campground last time, mixing it up this time to try out Lake Glory. Got a water/electric/sewer site.

Have fun! I live 20 min from Knoebels and it's always a good time. Enjoy the new coaster!

We've stayed at Lake Glory and really enjoyed it there. We also stayed at the Knoebles Campground next to the park... Boy... Getting in and out of our site was quite the experience... Never again. We saw the J&D Campground and it looked very nice. Next time, maybe.

We have driven through the Knoebels campground and thought the same thing about getting in and out. Cramped quarters. I imagine its also very noisy there.

We have stayed at Lake Glory a few times, in fact this year we will be there too July 13-16. The kids love the park and so do we. It's only about a 1.5hr drive for us just up I-80. Never tried JD but, I heard that's nice too. Lake Glory is just far enough away, they do have the shuttle but, we ended up driving everyday, it's free to park anyway. The people there are super friendly at the campground and accommodating to the needs of the camper. We booked a Sunday-Wednesday and it wasn't overly crowded, I hear on the weekends it really fills up good during the summer.

We have also stayed at Knobles campground. Have not had any trouble getting in and out. Have been in the lower section (a little noiser) and the upper section. Trying Lake Glory this year also, because of full hookups. Does J&D have a shuttle to the park anyone know.

J&D does not have a shuttle, I know know that because I was going to stay there with a MH once but, didn't have a car with us so we stayed at Lake Glory and used the shuttle that time. Now, with the TT, we just drive the pickup to the park.

Would love to hear your report on Lake Glory after your stay. Knoebel's is so close, that it's usually a motorcycle trip and not a camping trip--plus every time we're there, we say "that campground is way too busy/loud/etc." So other options are always good.

I wanted the hookups, so Knoebels' campground is out for me.

I'm excited for the new roller coaster- it just seems dang cool!

Everything is cool at Knobles. My wifes family is from Elysburg and she was born in Shamokin so she has many memories of Knobles as a kid. We have been going as a family for at least 35 years, and it amazes me to this day how they keep recovering from storms. I know they get tremendous volunteer help during those times of crisis. I can sit for hours at the Merry Go Round and listen the the Organ.
