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 beginning 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. 18 - Nov. 3 with your favorite rides and coasters, festive fall food and a chocolatey trick-or-treat adventure.

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 Hershey's Character Glow Dance Party, now offered daily through the Hersheypark In The Dark season, as well as lights-out rides on Laff Trakk, Wildcat, Comet and Lightning Racer.


3. Halloween-themed campground fun

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

On Fridays and Saturdays, Oct. 18 - Nov. 2, guests will have the opportunity to participate in a number of activities, including trick-or-treating, a costume contest, pumpkin decorating, site decorating contest and more! 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!

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 â€‹will light up the night with more than 200 carved, illuminated pumpkins on display throughout the Gardens Fridays and Saturdays Oct. 18-26.

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 - a sweet Camp 2 Nights, Get 1 Free offer is available now!

There's so much to do in Hershey this fall that you're going to want an extra day. Lucky for you, guests who camp two nights at any cabin, tent, partial or full hook-up site get the third night FREE when they book by Oct. 31! Based on availability, blackout dates and other restrictions may apply.
