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.

Knoebels doesn't have too much for big kids, though the one roller coaster is very good.... It is really fun for little kids and it's a nice old-time amusement park for the family.

I've been coming to this park since I was a child, and it ranks high with me among favorite amusement parks. The parking is free, and to get on the rides, you buy tickets as needed. One of the best things about it is the crystal clear and ice cold swimming pool- a million gallon tank. Whenever my fiance and... More

This amusement park in elysburg is perhaps the best value of any park in the state of PA. If you are a parent who just wants to watch their kids enjoy the rides this is perfect because it is free admission along with free parking. Yes it gets busy and yes there are line rides but it's worth it. I... More

To be honest, I'm a scaredy-cat when it comes to roller coasters and these kind of "fun activities" people find amusing, BUT, this place is great because it really offers a choice for everyone. I didn't get bored once and I didn't have to go on certain rides to miss the fun. Absolutely loved it!

Best place to go for family fun at an affordable price. No admission fee....No parking fee....Bring your own food or buy it as you play....Pet friendly....Campground onsite....Cabins for rent too! You only pay for what you choose to do...Rides are reasonably priced and food on sale is priced for family to enjoy.

What I really like about this park is that there is no admission fee and you can bring in your own food. Of course, you can buy food there as well. You buy tickets for rides and therefore only pay for the rides you ride, or you can buy a daily pass for the kids who tend to take more... More

We were a bit disappointed that 'Flying Turns' wasn't running the day we visited, but the craft vendors displaying for the Covered Bridge Festival were amazing ! If you visit during the Covered Bridge Festival, however, need to get there earlier than normal; the place was PACKED !
