    First time camping in Hershey

    The first time my two best friends, my twin brother and i went to Hershey high meadow we knew we were going to have a blast. Once we had arrived to the campground we all headed to the front desk to get our key to the rustic cabin where we stayed since we don't like sleeping in tents and can't afford an RV. The employees are so nice and helpful too. There was also a shopping area/ gift shop, and an arcade which was awesome. Now the cabin we stayed in had 1 bed, 1 bunk bed, mini fridge, TV, microwave, air conditioning, heat, fire pit to cook food, and a cabinet to put clothes in. When we drove the car to our cabin it looked pretty small but actually was big inside. Once we unpacked our stuff we all headed down to the swimming pool where we swam for at least 2 hours. the campsite has 2 pools. One big pool and a smaller one for little children. The life guards are well trained and really friendly. my friends and i would play water ball or cannon ball competitions. While swimming we met a family and started talking to them and playing water games with there kids who were nice.
    Once we finished swimming we went to the arcade to play some games for 45 minutes. My favorite game was DDR( dance dance revolution). Once we finished that we went to the store/ gift shop which was next door and got our tickets to Hershey park and candy. The gift shop was so awesome because they sell anything for your tent, RV, etc... Once we finished with that we headed back to our cabin for lunch then we decided to play some sports at the big field which is near the pool and playground. We all played basketball, volleyball, catch with a tennis ball, badminton, and Frisbee.
    Night time is the best because you can start your campfire right next to your cabin( there are 3 types of cabins. Rustic, extended, and deluxe cabin which has a bathroom/shower, kitchen, 1 bed, bunk bed, sofa bed.) I bought myself a grill at the campgrounds gift shop for 20.00 and used the fire pit for Smores then bond fire.
    If anyone likes Hershey park the campground has a shuttle bus that takes you to the park then back to the campground.
    I would definitely recommend this campground because its a great place for children, parents, the elderly, etc..., the employees are so friendly too, its near Hershey park and you will enjoy it there. if not then give it a try. I will be going there for the 3rd time.

    ... fat in it'. I think he said I could have 10% milk. Full cream milk is called 'cream' but is not pouring cream like ours. Strange people. Have to ask for cappuccino or get filter coffee and creamer, which isn't even a dairy product. Muffin was good though. All on bus nice and early and had to go to Duty Free to pick up peoples purchases before crossing boarder. Poms all bought alcohol. Not worth carrying around, would get broken. They ...

    ... plush toys of the different candy characters. I find this kind of odd, ok the Hershey's Kiss character is cute but the others are a bit odd looking but when in Hershey! Oddly enough the Twizzler character is a teddy bear.... weird. Anyway then it was off on our way to our New Jersey hotel. We took the kids swimming (again) and ate dinner. Tony and Dottie got locked out of their hotel room for a few hours because the door key system completely died, so random. Tomorrow HOME!! ~ ...

    ... lines so we only did that ride once. It did rain for about 15 minutes but then it did he nice again so we headed for the water rides! Always a family favorite. We had fun in the Lazy River (Tony's favorite) hit all the spray ground and water slide areas and swan in the huge wave pool. Totally fun. Overall there are too many things to tackle in one day at Hershey, also it is a phone battery vortex because by noon all our phones ...

    ... couldn't believe it and neither could I, we are so lucky we didn't have a tire blow out. The back rear tires were both completely worn through. This put a wrench in our original plans for the next day because we planned on meeting at the campground and then go to Hershey Park for the day, since we are campground guests we could get into the park early. Tony called around and learned that the service center at a dealership (thankfully there was one literally right around the ...
