Hershey Highmeadow Campground

Hello all,

I had a five-day tenting camping trip to Hershey last month. I have some great pics to share followed by my thoughts about the facility. Stay tuned...

Thanks for sharing your photos....so neat to see! We are heading there next year for a couple of days and will be using the shuttle to get to the park. Looks very nice!

Thanks for sharing your trip report. I love all the pictures. You did a great job of taking photos to really give all of us a sense of what the campground is really like.

Stay Tuned

Thanks guys!

I have a few more pics to post....and some tips and advice for staying there. I actually took most of the pics at 7:00 am that's why the place looks like a ghost town.

I have several friends that are on the fence about camping. This was my way of showing them around....to entice them to join the craze!!! Hopefully they join me at my next camping trip.

I was going to ask if you were an early riser or if they had evacuated the campground for some reason.
