Campers Beware

Otter Creek is a beautiful park that is being managed by two unstable people that contradict eachother and do not abide by their own rules.

Eventhough she has a countertop full of brochures, pamphlets,the rules seem to change daily. Request a copy of all registration documents/forms and record any conversations that you should have with either of the managers, Kevin or Paula, should you decide to stay there.

Chances are you will need them for proof when she calls the state police on you with ficticious charges that will be read to you by her phony security guard that is actually a weekend camper.

We never complained about the park owner's huge Lab, Blue Heeler, and St. Bernard (that they dog-sat.) were never on a leash and plundered through our trash and interrupted our outdoor meals.

The office was always closed. If you needed to talk to them about anything you would have to chase Paula down then put up with her complaining and listen to the slander against the other campers. She complained about campers to the others and seemed to fabricate lies on most of the workers that stayed at the park. She called the welders union to try to garnish campers paychecks for non payment of utilities, which she first said were included in the rent.

She also tried to collect utilities from campers that did not have a meter. She also contacted the Construction Company and supposedly showed up at the office trying to garnish wages of workers that thought they had left here on good terms. She accused on of our men of being gay because he was sharing a camper with another gentlemen simply because they were out of town working on the same job together. Both men are married, although it is none of the park owner's business what anyone' sexual orientation is, I believe that is discrimination.

She accused the married men in the park of having girlfriends. She claimed they confided in her and begged her not to tell their wives when the wives visited the park. She also stated that running the park was like running a daycare and the campers were like kids that she had to manage.

Such a shame.....this is truly a beautiful place and so many of us "out of towners" have had a horrible experience in York County thanks to Otter Creek. I sincerely hope that the park will be overtaken by some wonderful locals with pride in York County and people skills.

Stepping Back in time

This campground is like going back to when camping with your family was fun and safe. A time when campers and the host were friendly to each other.

Terrible Campground

Stayed at this campground while volunteering for the Susquehanna Super Hike. Told them while making reservations we had two tents, two dogs, please put us in a quiet, grassy area. Our site was obviously for a small camper, mostly gravel, not level, and had a patch of high weeds that had not been mowed all summer. AND poison ivy. Broken glass and trash all over, which we had to clean up before even letting the dogs out of the truck. It was almost impossible to set our tent stakes in the hard packed gravel. The other sites were right up against ours on all sides, with only some high weeds and a few vine-draped small trees in between. There was a stinky pit toilet nearby. All this for $32 per night, and imagine my surprise when I went to the old, dirty shower house - that I was required to put quarters in a machine to get a 7 minute shower! We had to put a $10 deposit on a pass to get us through the locked gate, when we left the office was closed so we put it in a drop box - but don't expect to see that $10 again. The firewood which we were required to buy, was $14 for 20 pieces. Plus I have never seen so many spiders - I camp often and expect a few, but this place has them hanging from the trees, crawling all over, in addition to the bees that hang around from all the garbage.
The only nice thing I can say about this place is that they do allow dogs, and the guy that delivered our firewood was friendly and offered to help us put up our tents. And the guests did adhere to the 10pm quiet time restriction.
I would never stay at this place again. It's a shame because it is a beautiful area and a great location and it could be so much nicer than it is.

Go Elsewhere

I stayed here the weekend of the super hike.
The campsites have trash throughout and the only places that the grass had been mowed were near the entrance. Very high weeds in all the campsites.

I didn't feel unsafe, but I have felt safer at more out of the way camps. Possibly that's the impression left by the unkempt look.

The sites were too close together and you really didn't have any privacy.

I camp often in and out of PA and honestly this is one of the worst campgrounds I have been to despite being in one of the most scenic parts of the state.

Not worth the price.

Nice Campground

We camped here 6/7/13 - 6/9/13 and wished our stay was longer. It's a beautiful setting and the new management was great, very friendly. I would definitely go here again.

We camped in a travel trailer.

Very Enjoyable

My husband and I recently stayed at Otter Creek Campground for the weekend and enjoyed our stay very much. I was hesitant to book here based on reviews but did once I saw that it was under new management and am happy that I did. We stayed in a tent on a primitive site (No Hook-ups) and were very pleased. Our site was nice and grassy with a picnic table and fire ring in a shady area. The managers, Mandy and Scott, were very pleasant and accommodating. I noticed that most of the sites with electrical and water hookups had a layer of gravel and would not suit to tent camp but are all very spacious and private for those with campers. The bathrooms around the campground are comparable to outhouses but the main bathroom and showers have running water and are very functional. $.50 for a 6 minute shower. We had no problems getting our deposit back for the gate key. There are many trails that are around the campground and the scenery of Otter Creek and the Susquehanna River is beautiful. There are a lot of spiders in the area but not so much that an arachnophobe like myself was overly worried. They were mostly on the trails. Overall, we would definitely visit Otter Creek again and recommend it to other campers. Thanks Mandy and Scott for the wonderful ice cream!!
