Thousand Trails/Outdoor World Gettysburg Farm

PARK; Thousand Trails/Outdoor World Gettysburg Farm, 6200 Big Mount Road Dover PA
Date; 7/29/12-8/10/12
Staff; Very friendly and helpful

Price; $0. For members, about $40. For non members
Site Description; We had a back in on grass/gravel, more grass then gravel. We had a full hook up with 50 amp electric. The site was fairly level.  We had a picnic table and fire ring. We needed 30 foot of sewer hose to connect to the sewer hookup, and this is common in many of the sites. So bring enough sewer hose.  There were a few large trees at our site.

Check out the sewer hose-30 foot
The road to our site.

Amenities; Very active schedule, like most TT parks. There is a large pool, clubhouse, mini golf, etc, etc. This is a country atmosphere resort with many farm animals. There are goats, horses, cows, chickens, ducks, pigs, etc. 4 o’clock is feeding time, and the kids can help feed.  The club house is very country with a large stone fireplace.  About 250 sites with 20 rental cabins.
Laundry; There is a very clean laundry in the clubhouse.
Phone/Wifi/TV; Our Verizon phone worked very well. Not sure about wifi. Over the air TV we receive all major networks.
Dog Friendly; Yes, very large park with many areas to walk a dog.
Night; Very low light at night. Very quite even though the park was full while we were there.
Book Exchange; Small book exchange in clubhouse.
The pool area
 A tractor show one of the weekends we were there. See the bathtub tractor, it did run. They had a parade around the park
 This 1920 steam tractor was driven hear from a nearby farm.

Summary; Out in the country and about 8-10 miles from grocery shopping and many Restaurants. A few small restaurants about six miles. About 15 miles from downtown York with many factory
tours in the area. 18 miles from Gettysburg National Park.  The park is a great location for touring the area. We will try to get back to do some of the factory tours. The park sits along the Conestoga Creek. We did have some very heavy rains while there The ground was already saturated and some of the sites down toward the creek had 2-3 inches of water laying around them for a day or two. There ara limited number of 50 amp sites. They let you choose your own site, like most TT Parks, but it burns my butt when I see a pop up with a 20 mp cord on a 50 amp site and a large 5th wheel or Motor home have to take a 30  amp site. There are many seasonal/annual sites on the limit 50 amp sites. The park was nearly full for the 12 days we were here.  We would definitely stay here again.
