Thousand Trails Hershey Apr 2011

Site: We had a pull thru in the "H" section. I believe it was H26.  It was gravel fairly level.  Some  roads are paved.  It was 50 amp full hook up.  No shade and on our patio side we faced the south for full afternoon sun.  No shade, could be very hot in the summer. Because of fairly steep hillside sun was below our awning most of the afternoon. No privacy between sites.Site was long enough for our rig, car and truck. Big rig friendly.
Laundry:Each restroom building has a small clean laundry.
TV WIFI PHONE: No cable. Over the air TV was fair, we could not always get the major networks. We did not use the wifi. Our Verizon cell phone was fair to good. We did use our Wilson antenna and amplifier with our Droid phone and our signal was good to very good.
Amenities:Like most Thousand Trails they have a very active list of planned activities. There is a large outdoor pool(not opened at this time). There is a small lake for fishing and kayaking. Very active with families.
Location:About 5 miles from Hershey and about 8-10 miles from the major attractions in Hershey. Nearest large grocery is about 8 miles. There is a small grocery about 3 miles, but it was closed on a Saturday afternoon when we stopped. It is about  8-9 miles from the PA Turnpike.  About 15 miles from I81. It is a country setting.
Summary:A nice very active fairly large RV Park.  It could use a little upgrading and more paved roads.  The Canada goose population could be reduced, as there are way too many dropping in the park from them. They could better spend their money on improvements rather them radar guns for the rangers. The manager is very nice and all the staff very very friendly.

Bonus:The city of Hershey and all its attraction. The Amish country about 30 miles.  Hollywood Casino about 20 miles.
