Ranger Review: Banner & Oak at Knoebels Campground

Campground Review: Knoebels campground is very expansive and has sites named after various states and countries. For this trip we stayed at Bermuda site#6. The sites are very clean and come with a power hookup, picnic table, and fire ring. In addition to the campsites you have access to the campsite bathrooms which also have showers. They’re nothing special but they get the job done and are cleaned daily by staff. The campsites themselves are also honestly nothing special, they’re a little packed but surprisingly all of the campers are respectful and adhere to written quiet hours. What makes this place shine is its location. It’s nestled in the mountainside and just steps away from the main attraction, Knoebels Amusement Resort. This place is a throwback and hits all of the right notes. On the weekends you pay per ride, they have wooden roller coasters which consistently rank as the top in the country. There’s also a carousel that dates back 100 years, on the carousel if you ride on the outside they have brass rings that you can retrieve with the goal of collecting as many as you can. The food at the park is awesome and ranges from pizza to pierogis and everything in between. In addition to the rides they have a stream fed pool with water slides which was a great way to cool off on the hot days that we were there. The park itself is a 10/10 and a great place to make memories with your family. After a full day at the park it was great to get back to the campsite, make a fire, and crack a beer. I’ll be coming here with family for years to come.

Product Review: As a Ranger for The Dyrt, I get products to test from time to time. On this particular trip I tested the Home Free Hat by Banner& Oak. Banner & Oak is very much a brand committed to being environmentally conscious, celebrates the outdoors, and puts out stellar products.  Full disclosure: I have a monster collection of hats and this hat rates near the top in terms of construction and aesthetic. The Home Free gets a 5/5 in my books and will be a mainstay in my rotation. 

For more information and to purchase one for yourself check out the hat at their website: https://bannerandoak.com/collections/hats/products/home-free-navy

Great camping!

Connected to the park, a great way to visit! If you're an early to bed kinda person it'll be tough, the roller coasters are right there! I loved it though.

Fun for families!

It was nice for our family of five. Very convenient for the amusement park. Everyone was nice. The bathrooms were ok. I’ve seen much worse. We will be going again next year for sure!

Fun location next to amusement park

so much fun camping next to Knoebels amusement park. Tent campers can choose platform sites or camp in any site. Cabins are available to rent. Shower/bathroom buildings spaces out throughout campground- if you need to be close make sure you pick a site nearby one. During off peak times the campground is quiet! During peak times expect to be surrounded by campers.

Campsite permits reserving same site, same time every year.

Great place!

Knoebles is a great place to camp. Nestled among the trees and within a short walking distance to the free admission theme park. The only downside is during the heavy rain of the summer it will flood and can ruin or cancel your plans for staying there if booked during that time. Otherwise, it is a wonderful place and well worth the trip there.

Perfect for family!

This is an awesome family campground! You can walk to their amusement park from the grounds as well as their giant pool with waterslides and diving boards. The week we went there were severe storms and while the amusement park slightly flooded the campground was still dry for the most part. We love it here great for kids and dog friendly!

Always a good time

Always fun at Knoebels, even if you don’t make it into the park. Great for groups, both tents and RVs, with hookups available. The amusement park is free and you only pay for what you want to do.

Perfect for families

I've been camping here since I was 5. I now have a grandchild, so that's a long time.

With the amusement park across the street, and the cool stream to splash in, it's a small kids dream.

The showers are cleaned daily.

Clean, quiet, inexpensive, fun place to camp!

Knoebels campground is situated next to Knoebels amusement park and offers sites for tent campers and RVs, as well as cabins.

There is electricity at every site but not water. There are fill stations throughout the campgrounds. Most sites are level and shaded. There are nice sturdy wooden platforms for tent campers.

The bath houses are clean and well maintained. There are outside sinks with mirrors, laundry facilities, shower stalls, and toilet stalls. Or if you prefer there are also traditional bathrooms with showers.

Quiet hours are enforced between 10p and 8a.

Each site has a fire ring and picnic table. Wood is available by the bucket near the check in building. Sites are inexpensive and are all a short walk, or free shuttle ride, to the park!.

best park around

we camp at lake glory every year. free shuttle to Knoebels. very good price
