First time camping in Hershey

Reviewed Jun 3, 2009

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.

... the fog, past tanks, helicopters... a Vietnam War style lookout posts... a Civil War style camp... a Revolutionary War style fort... some World War I style trenches. The fog gives it a mysterious melancholic feel as I wander about, trying to get a mental picture of each of these combats. Next to the museum is something that gives a very different image of the American military: a very upscale neighborhood of large homes and a golf course in the center... ...

... very ugly streets with metal hardware shops etc that look like they were built in 2 days. There is a little Middle Eastern store run by an Egyptian guy that looks interesting--but it's not very well stocked... I'd never visited the Mechanicsburg Museum, so I guess I'd better do it now. It's basically a one room old railway station, honoring the importance that the Cumberland railway played in the development of ...

... that went on in China in the old, old days were the stuff of dreams and legends. There was an relative of mine who was foldly called "Uncle Ten." He was number ten, I guess. But what do you know, I later found out that he was quite a ladies' man. He must have had many wives, (like ten, if one can take the gossip to be serious) for a story was told about his meeting this one lad on a train, and how he took a liking to him so much that he invited him to have ...
