Looking for campgrounds in Lancaster, PA area?

New member to forum. Have a 2011 390 QS Berkshire motor home. Wife & I planning a trip to the PA Dutch country next year. Staying for 4 - 5 days. Looking for a nice campground in the area to work out of during my visit. Also, heard the eating is fantastic! Best advice always comes from people who have been there & done this.

Lake In Wood Camping Resort has always been a great place. I would say 8 or 9 out of 10. The previous owner was a meticulous man who took extreme pride in everything. I believe it is now owned by Sun Resorts. I have not been back in the last few years since the ownership change but definitely worth looking into.

There are many nice campgrounds in the area. We stay at Beacon Hill every year, using our camper and renting the park model for my parents.

It is small, no amenities except for hook ups, and I believe is 16 yo or older. The owners are super nice. Each Saturday an Amish mother with children come around selling homemade deserts and vegetables. It is located close to everything.

We used to stay at the Lancaster KOA. While nice, I wouldn’t recommend it. Owners are nasty. Prior to my parents staying at the cg with us, they stayed at a local motel. We wanted to have them over for cake and coffee (my mothers 80th bd) and the cg charged us $12 to have them there for an hour. Not like my 80 yo mother was going to use any amenities there!

When you go, check out Sight and Sound. I believe Jesus will be still amazing show!

Also Check out the Strasburg rail museum. It’s is among the best.

Lancaster is a nice area to relax. You’ll enjoy it!

Old Mlll Stream Camground is our favorite... We stay there 3 to 4 times a year.
Also KOA Lancaster is another good one we go to at least once a year.

I recommend the Park Adviser app to locate CGs.

Spring Gulch

You canít get any closer and central to real Amish country than Spring Gulch Campground in New Holland. It is a huge resort with very large sites ó wooded or not is your choice, but the wooded sites in the 1500 section are the best. If you go to their website, you can check out the amenities. The only thing on that list of amenities that is wrong is they list a billiards/game room, which they no longer have.

From Spring Gulch it takes 11 minutes to drive to Intercourse and 15 minutes to drive to Bird-In-Hand. It is about 25-30 minutes from the city of Lancaster.

The scenery in the immediate area is beautiful.

There is also the New Holland KOA which is about 1 mile from Spring Gulch. It is much smaller with less amenities. I have never stayed there (but I have been there), but it has good reviews. The sites are much smaller than those at Spring Gulch. There are very few wooded sites, but the non-wooded sites are atop a hill with a 5-mile view of beautiful (mostly Amish) farmland.
