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.

Wedding fit for a princess

Our daughter got married at this resort. The employees were wonderful and very helpful. Even through the rain, we had a great day. We stayed in a cottage for three nights.

We absolutely LOVE this place. We've gone twice a year for the past five years. There are activities to fit any age child. We have yet to leave disappointed. If you're paying with a credit/debit card; be sure to bring a photo I.D. They ALWAYS check, no exceptions! Best part is if you're not an avid ride lover, its FREE... More

Knoebel's is great for so many reasons. 1. No entry fee - it is easy to take grandparents and friends along. Knoebel's gets it - those people still spend money, even if they don't ride! 2. Kid friendly - Half the park is dedicated to children's rides, and most of them are old school - bumper cars, The Whip, etc.... More

There is something for everyone at the largest free admission amusement park in the country. We visit at least twice annually. They have a great collection of rides a few of them can't be found anywhere else. The Phoenix is one of our favorite wooden coasters that I've been on, and I am lucky to have that close to home....
