This park has everything to offer, you wont be sorry. The camping area is very nice, some sites have electric, some don't and most are usually filled during the summers, so make reservations ahead. The hiking/biking trails can be tough in certain areas, lots of...More

We live within minutes of Codorus State Park. Sadly, last year we did not utilize the park as much as we would like. This year, however, we have remedied that. The pool is expansive and very nice. Our kids absolutely love it. Since purchasing kayaks,...More

Wife and I love it here. Have been here too many times to count for family reunions, fishing, boating, hiking, camping, enjoying God's beautiful creation. Pristine and beautiful and home to nesting active Eagles :)

This is a huge park with something to do for everyone. We rented a pontoon boat and cruised the lake which was relaxing and fun for everyone. Last visit went to a back access area where you can launch a boat. Apparently there is an...More

A beautiful park with ample opportunity for fishing, hiking canoeing, kayaking and picnics. The lake, even at low levels, has interesting wildlife. Picnic facilities abound, too.

Ever since we bought an RV, this has been our go to place. We enjoy Codorus camping accomodations. They have different loops and areas for strictly pets, which is nice. We don't have any pets, but enjoying the fact that we don't have to worry...More

Could be a little tough, loop b is wooded and tighter, than say loop d. Loop 59, 63, that area would be easier. If you aren't happy, they may let you move to an overflow area, if they are fully booked.

I think it is 17.00 for first hour and 10.00 for every hour after. Tandem kayaks are more, but I am not sure of the price. I have my own kayak, so I had to pay to launch for a year.
