Has anyone stayed at the Lancaster/New Holland KOA? Seems like a very nice park but reviews vary during the time is was changing over to a KOA.

We have stayed there when it was Country Haven. If you get the premium sites on the hillside the scenery is beautiful. You can look out over the Amish Countryside. Across the street is an Amish Bakery selling bear claws and donuts on Friday and Saturday mornings. The male owner is friendly but the female owner is all business and has little time for small talk(a polite way of saying that she is a bit short with customers). They converted over to KOA last year. Give it a try. I do warn you that if you have dogs, you will get a lecture from the female owner that the dog cannot bark and do not leave it unattended in the RV. We have camped there several times over the years and enjoy the scenery and the quietness of the campground. Also, there is no pool it caters to the over 50 without children crowd. Not sure if this will change.

We live just out side Gettysburg and camp at Twin Grove RV RESORT. Close to Hershey and Lancaster about hour and half to Gettysburg. Great CG our club has had three rallies there.

Anyone stayed at Jellystone South of Lancaster? Is it worth the crazy $115.00 a night fee?

Overrated in my book. We were there in 2013. The water park is geared for more younger kids. We won't stay there again. I can drive to Frontiertown in OC MD and get a better bang for my buck (it's actually cheaper).

Thanks for the feedback. On the web it looks nice, but we are getting into Hotel prices at 115 a night.
