Fantasy Island Campground – Sunbury, Pa.

Older campground built on site of amusement park
  • Editor Rating

  • Rated 3 stars
  • 60%


Located on the site of a former amusement park on an island in the Susquehanna River, Fantasy Island is a small, 96-site overnight campground populated by plenty of seasonal campers as well.

The campground is an older facility without much in the means of amenities other than a pool, small playground and aging mini-golf course. There is a rec room with several video games open during business hours. The park offers 20-, 30- and 50-amp connections, as well as full hook up sites, some of which are on cement pads while most others are on gravel. Free cable is provided as is a fire ring and picnic table. Each site has a paved patio.

Free Wi-Fi service is provided, but the process to connect is rather unusual. A username and password has to be obtained from the office during business hours, which allows people to connect to the campground's wireless network. However, a separate username and password is needed to actually connect to the Internet, and it only works on one device for 72 hours. Once connected, the campground tested at 2.89 mbs download and 1.77 mbs upload. However, my Verizon connection tested at 5.14 mbs download and 8.42 mbs upload.

A small store is available with basic supplies and limited food options; however, propane is sold on site. A boat launch and public dock is available to all campers. Onside restrooms and laundry are adequate.
