Looking for a way of spending quality time with your kids this is the place. Camp and be safe. The Ranger Service is very active and forget about the Blair Witch Project. Regardless of the weather conditions this is the place to visit.

Just recently stayed at Codorus SP for 2 nights. Had taken our dog with us. Pets are allowed, but only on specific pet friendly sites. Over 190 sites including cabins and yurts. But only about 40 are pet friendly. The site are well kept and the facilities are clean. Plenty of hot water for showers. It may have been the... More

This is a great place to spend a couple of hours easily - just sitting and reading, kayaking, walking, playing frisbee, bird watching ... endless possibilities! LOVE this place!

This is a great state park. It has a nice camping area. Fishing and boating are very popular here, as well as swimming, mountain biking, skating, and hiking. This park as a lot to offer.

We talk a walk around LaHo trail (lake). It was very beautiful. The walk was not strenuous. However, if you need walking assistance of any kind, you should not take the walk. It is on a small path that is a little rough with roots, rocks etc. it will take about an hour to walk all around the lake. The... More

I come here to just relax. I always run/hike the mary furnace trail which is an easy trail. I can run it in about 30 minutes. I always stop at the water and just sit in silence. It is truly so serene and easy to get to. The only con to this trail is lack of parking, about 5 cars... More

Stayed here Labor Day Weekend on the recommendation of a friend but found out they did not tent camp but rather stayed in their all inclusive RV. This is a lovely, convenient campground but if you are tent camping (which we were) be prepared for mosquitoes, noise across the lake from the main road, sites on the side of hill... More

This 1.5 hour ride on the pontoon was fantastic! So relaxing. There are only about 9 people on the pontoon. That is a plus! The volunteer that spoke during the tour knew the history as well as the flora and fauna of the area. Plus she made it so interesting. To find information on this little known gem, you must... More
