We were looking forward to this two week stop at Hershey, PA Thousand Trails and it didn’t disappoint. We enjoyed this campground when we were here a few years ago and knew this would be a good longer stop this year after several weeks of one week or less stays.
When we were at Hershey before we picked a site on the hill of Loop H. The 50 amp sites in that area don’t have the $3 a day surcharge that is charged for all the other 50 amp sites in the campground. However, I must confess we got a bit tired of the big hill. For this stay we decided to check out Loop B. We found a great spot and felt we made an excellent choice. About all but the sites in Loop A (which has some very nice spots) are full hookup. Honestly, it isn’t hard to find a nice campsite in this Thousand Trails.
Every interaction we had with the staff was positive and we appreciated their helpfulness.
My only complaint is the lack of internet connectivity. My Verizon signal was poor leaving me with only a fair data connect. Campground WiFi is only available at the Activity Center and it is even slower – think old time dial-up speeds. It isn’t that the campground hasn’t tried to supply WiFi. The area providers simply aren’t willing to come out to the campground.
My satellite TV signal was easy to dial in. There are many interesting things to see and do in the area as well as a nice pool and other facilities right on the property. Lots of shopping and restaurants are within 30 minutes.
It is easy to see why Hershey Thousand Trails is one of the most popular campgrounds in the system. We are already thinking about our next visit.
