5 reasons to stay at Hersheypark Camping Resort this fall

If you love Halloween, camping, coasters and chocolate, then be sure to put a trip to Hersheypark Camping Resort on your calendar this fall! Here are five reasons the campground is a must-visit destination this season.

1. View of beautiful fall foliage

The leaves are already starting to change in Hershey, Pa., and when they’re at their peak, they're certainly a sight to see!

If the beautiful fall foliage isn’t reason enough to book your visit (I mean, just look at those pictures!), keep reading. We came up with a few more.

2. Free transportation to Hersheypark In The Dark

Hersheypark In The Dark, Hersheypark's Halloween event, returns Fridays through Sundays from Oct. 19-29 and Nov. 2-4 with more than 55 rides and attractions, including 13 roller coasters and 13 candy locations on the Trick-or-Treat Trail.

As a guest of Hersheypark Camping Resort, you'll receive the best price available on seasonal Hersheypark tickets as well as complimentary front-gate shuttle service to and from the park. 

If you go, don't miss out on the Character Glow Party, now offered daily through the Hersheypark In The Dark season.


3. Halloween-themed campground fun

We love Halloween here at Hersheypark Camping Resort, and our guests love it, too! Which is why we've packed our campground activities schedule full of spooktacular fun during Hersheypark In The Dark weekends.

On Fridays and Saturdays, Oct. 20-27 and Nov. 2-3, guests will have the opportunity to participate in a number of contests, including a coloring contest, costume contest, pumpkin decorating contest and campsite decorating contest. Make sure you bring your A-game because our guests take it up a notch every year with more and more creative ideas. Scroll through the photos below, and take a look for yourself!

Other events include Halloween crafts, candy scramble, and, of course, a Trick-or-Treat Trail.

4. Preferred pricing on seasonal Hershey events

One of the perks of being a guest at Hersheypark Camping Resort is the opportunity to take advantage of our Free Resort Benefits. All guests receive preferred pricing to Hershey Gardens, The Hershey Story's Museum Experience and ZooAmerca North American Wildlife Park.

And, if you visit in the fall, you can also take part in seasonal events, such as Pumpkin Glow at Hershey Gardens and Creatures Of The Night at ZooAmerica.

Pumpkin Glow ​will light up the night with more than 200 carved, illuminated pumpkins on display throughout the Gardens Fridays and Saturdays Oct. 19-27. 

And Creatures Of The Night will allow visitors to take part in an exploration into the nighttime habits of ZooAmerica's nocturnal animals that is both fun and educational.

5. And, possibly the best reason of all - our best deal of the season is available now!

Now through Nov. 4, guests can enjoy tent and hookup sites starting as low as $39. Don't wait! Book your stay today! Call 717-534-8999 or visit HersheyparkCampingResort.com.
