Hershey Park Camping

You have so many options when choosing the Hersheypark Camping Resort. Choose from regular and pull-through campsites with partial or full hook-ups or stay in a log cabin, which range from basic features to deluxe amenities. Plus in the summer, you’ll have access to two pools and a kiddie pool.

Check out the beautiful campsites at Hershey Park!

I was impressed by the amenities and how homey everything felt. There are basketball courts, volleyball courts, shuffleboard courts, a playground, picnic tables, a campfire pit, and some nights they play a movie on a big outdoor screen, all included with your stay at Hersheypark Camping Resort.

Fun for your little ones at the campsites for Hershey park!

Landis Barn at Hersheypark Camping Resort

The Historic Landis Barn features the Country Store – Sweets and More, where you can pick up camping items and includes a gift shop with awesome apparel featuring my favorite snack.

Get your S'mores on at the gift shop in Hersheypark Camping Resort!

If S’mores were the only food left on a deserted island, I’d survive. So of course I had to purchase a hat to stake my claim as Official S’more Tester.

Find cute s'more apparel in the gift shop at Hersheypark campground.

Landis Barn also houses a Family Fun Center with a mini arcade, laundry facility, and restroom/shower facility. This a great place to disconnect and enjoy family time. If you do need to connect (because I sometimes get twitchy if I don’t), no worries, there’s WiFi!

Have fun in the mini arcade at Hersheypark Camping Resort!

Hersheypark Camping Resort Cabins

So, this is my kind of camping or glamping. We toured an empty 2-bedroom deluxe Hersheypark Camping Resort cabin, and this is the place for me and my family. First of all, they sleep 7. Perfect! That’s the exact number in my family.

This is a more affordable option for bigger families than The Hotel Hershey or The Hershey Lodge. Second, hello, kitchen! Third, indoor plumbing including a toilet and shower in your cabin. Yeah, I’m one of those who really digs indoor plumbing. Call me crazy or high-maintenance.

2-bedroom deluxe Hersheypark Camping Resort cabins are perfect for big families on a budget at Hersheypark.

Here are the Hersheypark Camping Resort Cabins amenities:

  • Indoor plumbing, bathroom/shower
  • Electric
  • Heat and Air Conditioning
  • TV with cable and DVD unit
  • Ceiling fan or wall fan
  • Refrigerator
  • Microwave
  • Kitchenette appliances: 2 burner stove top, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffee pot (filters not included).
  • Serving items for 7 people: plates, bowls, mugs, plastic cups, forks, spoons, knives, and steak knives. Miscellaneous items: frying pans, sauce pan, manual can opener, measuring spoons/cups, dish drainer, and serving spoons.
  • Dining table with benches/chairs
  • Dresser
  • Porch with picnic table
  • Outside fire ring with grate

What you need to bring: You need to bring your own supply of linens, pillows, blankets, towels, personal items, and kitchen linens, such as dish towels and hot pads. Am I giving a little side-eye for having to bring my own linens? Yes. Mostly because I’m likely to forget, but that’s my issue.

Come take a look inside.

There is a ton of space in the 2-bedroom deluxe cabins at hersheypark campground resort.

You also get a full kitchenette in a deluxe cabin at the Hersheypark Camping Resort. Make easy breakfasts in the morning to save money.

I don’t have a picture of the main room with the sofa, television, and desk that connects the kitchen and 1st bedroom, but it adds to the already spacious cabin.

Hersheypark Camping Resort Cabins have a 3-night stay requirement during the summer and holiday weekends and 2-night stay requirement during the rest of the year.

They also have 1-bedroom cabins that sleep 7 that have the same layout minus one bedroom. There is a pull-out sofa bed in the main room.
