  • The campground and park it's self is nice. But the bathrooms and showers are gross and scary. I felt like I was in a horror film. The showers curtains didn't close all the was and anyone who would walk by would see me naked. There was paint chips all over the floor and one of the drains was clogged. The wall looked like they had spots of mold growing all over. There was spider webs everywhere. It looked like no one took care or cared to do so.
  • Beautiful park! Great hiking/biking trails and a short drive to Gettysburg. Clean campground & restrooms.The campground host Sharon was great! Very friendly and helpful. We will be back.
  • Beautiful park on river. Three lakes to enjoy. Camping , swimming pool, easy to difficult trails. Bar-b-q Grills and tables, locals favorite spot. Small boat rentals. Appalachian trail runs through. Safe parking for hikers. Friendly Staff at all stops.
  • A large park with activities anyone can enjoy. There are a number of hiking trails, a large stream to splash around in, and a pool. Great shaded areas for picnics or get-togethers, and a large open field for frisbee and other games.
  • I have been to Calendonia many times, for photography, Kayaking, or hiking. They have great scenic views from the falls to hiking trails. This last time my family and I went Camping. Just like the many times before. Beautiful, clean and quiet :D
