Very pretty park wrapped around several small lakes. Has horse trails, boat ramps, marina, and of course hiking trails. Very well maintained. Went there on a weekday and it was still fairly busy. A little too crowded for my preference.

We have been a few times now and each spot is unique. We have enjoyed each spot we stayed at equally. Each has it's pluses and minuses. Spots are good sized and spaced nicely for privacy. Highly recommend tent camping here. Great hiking and fishing....More

They have a bunch of kicking trails and the lake isn't to cold at any time of the year so kids can wade in it. The pool gets a little crowded but they place is great.

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

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.
