Knoebels is a place the whole family can enjoy! It is America's largest free-admission amusement park and also offers free parking, free daily entertainment and free picnic facilities. While at the park, you can take a dip in our 900,000 gallon Crystal Pool filled with refreshing mountain stream water. The pool area includes watersides, diving boards and a play area just for young children. You can stay overnight at one of two campgrounds that include cabins and over 800 campsites for tents and campers. In addition to over 60 rides, award winning food, swimming, games, and gift shops, visitors can add a round of golf at Knoebels Three Ponds Golf Club right next door to the park.

We always love come here after visiting Rickett's Glen. You can pay as you go and there is no entrance fee, so it can be much cheaper than traditional amusement parks and is good if some people in your group don't want to go on...More

In some ways Knoebel's is a step back in time. Free admission, free parking, and the choice to pay by the ride or buy a wrist band. They have some world class wooden roller coasters like the Phoenix and the Twister - both awesome rides....More

It may not have the spectacle and flash of Disney or the fast giant coasters of Hershey, but that's what makes it so great. It's a place you can take the whole family from toddlers to grandparents and have fun together. First of all the...More

Knoebel's Grove just keeps getting better if that is possible. I needed an uplifting day and no better place. New rides, lots of different food at reasonable prices, seating throughout park, shaded areas. I have gone to Knoebel's for 60 years so my priorities have...More

We absolutely love this place! What a great concept! Knoebels is awesome for kids and the adults don't have to pay just to watch the kids have fun. The pay per ride concept is awesome! The only thing that was a bit of a turnoff...More
