Rate: $53.00 per night ~ we stayed on Memorial Weekend and there was a 4 night minimum stay.
Absolutely no refunds for any reason...No discounts

Date of Stay:  May 25th ~ 4 nights

Favorite Sites: We stayed on 25 ~ not level and horrible power ~ we couldn't run everything!

Weather During Stay: Weather was very warm ~ nice!

Phone/TV/Internet: We couldn't get Satellite with our Direct Roof Top antenna but they had cable with all the major networks. Both Verizon & AT&T phones worked fine and the Verizon Mi-fi Internet card worked on 3G.

Elevation/Landscape: Hills and rolling farmlands ~ beautiful country

Lighting/Noise: No noise other the birds and the lighting was OK... not overly bright.
Hiking/Walking/Biking: Fairly OK roads for walking but very hilly

Things to See & Do: PA Dutch Country, Strasburg Railroad and Museum, Small quaint towns, Shady Maple Smorgasbord and Market (highly recommended)

Rating: (6.5) We were caught short on a holiday weekend and needed a place to stay ~ everywhere we called was booked up solid. Finally we called Country Haven and they had 2 sites left so we quickly booked one after asking key questions like are the level and do you have 50 amp. Well the sites that were left were 30 but we knew we could get away with that since it hadn't been too hot. Then we read the reviews ~ Go there first before you book. (Click here for reviews) They say dogs can stay but when you get there they tell you don't let them bark at all.  Really???  All dogs bark don't they?  I was scared after we read them but we didn't have any problems... except the sites were not level (at all) and the voltage was really really bad.

Have Fun & Travel Safe
