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.

Go to Knoebels Amusement Resort each summer. Take kids and grandkids and have a good day at the amusement park. In the fall, there is a craft fair with many vendors. Always enjoy our time there.

Knoebels has a wonderfully diverse array of awesome rides that are impeccably maintained and among the safest anywhere, and many of them aren’t found in many other parks today. The vast majority of the operators are very friendly and helpful and make me feel like...More

We love this park. The grounds, rides, other attractions, prices and staff are terrific. It's as family friendly as you'll find in PA. Our only dissatisfaction was nutritious food options. Yes, fried and sugary foods are essential components of a day at an amusement park,...More
