Camping near Hershey recommendations

I am looking for a decent place around Hersey, Pa. Couple things I am looking for would be:
Big rig friendly
Pool
Clean
Has to be a fun place
Shade preferred, not needed

We will be coming up from Va and dads coming down from Mi. It's somewhere in the middle. Any and all suggestions welcome and appreciated.
Scott

I've stayed at the Hershey KOA twice now. Large wooded sites, firewood delivery, decent snack-bar on site and a couple of fast food places just outside the park. About 20 miles from Hershey itself. I'd stay there again, no problem.

They also have a few of the Camp Cabins in case your dad would rather have his 'own place' while you visit... give you both some privacy.

I went back into my files to find a picture, and I need to clarify...

Although there is a "Hershey" KOA,.. I meant the Jonestown KOA, which is located about 20 miles NE of Hershey. Here's a photo of my setup from Sept 2013 when I was there for the World's Largest RV show at Hershey Park:

Stayed at Hershey camping resort several times. They have shuttles to the park. Try to get sites 211 to 237. They are the bigger drive threw spots and farthest from the train tracks.

Stayed at elizabethtown koa its nice but a lot of driving if the park is your goal.

I heard Jonestown is good but never stayed there.

The other Hershey campground we drove threw and my wife said we would never stay there. lol

We usually go at least 2times a year.

Thanks for the input. Last week I made reservations We are water parking it at Jelly Stone. It's a win for everyone. Not t to far of a drive for dad to see some of the things he wants to see and the kids get to splash around. This way everyone will be busy and I will not. where's my chair and koozy!

Have you tried Bethpage?

I haven't been there yet but looks like a good time for the kids.

We go almost every year to Beth Page. We have a ball. Sites are all 50x50 unless it is festival times. Oh, and no super sites. They are super small, everything else is 50x50. We are not sure if we will make it this year. We have pretty much booked up all of our time this year. If you have not been, I recommend it. We have a great time there
