We enjoy Country Haven. It is 5 miles from Intercourse but the address is New Holland.

No pool, few kids and very quiet as they do not tolerate barking dogs. Sites overlook farmland and a small Amish bakery is open Friday and Saturday mornings across the street. Great fresh donuts.

Probably about 15 minutes to shopping outlets.

We enjoyed Country Haven. It is considered New Holland but is located off rt 340 about 5 miles east of Intercourse.

The are few amenities here and not many activities so very few kids. They have strict rules concerning dogs so it is very quiet.

Most sites overlook Amish farmland and there is an Amish farm across the street that sells fresh homemade donuts every Friday and Saturday morning.

Its probably about 15 minutes from the shopping outlets.

We are returning there next week.

I never could understand the attraction of Country Haven. It's nothing but a field half way down a hill. If you like a little shade this is not the place for you, but if you have a satellite dish atop your rig, you can finally be guaranteed a place to get a signal.

Sorry for the double post.

Country Haven has both wooded and open sites. We like the oepn because of the view.

To us the main attraction is peace and quiet. While I like dogs, we have an issue with neighbors dogs outside 24/7 barking day and night. While we are away we just dont want to hear them.

I live in the center of all the campgrounds mentioned. Lake in Woods is 5 min. from my home. Quite expensive, small sites and very strict. I personally like White Oak Campground in Quarryville. It is just outside the Village of Strasburg and Strasburg Railroad, Railroad museum of Pa. Choo-Choo barn. It is a quiet campground with a brand new pool. Another great campground is on Rt 30 Country Acres, this is a very clean park with large sites. They have sites both wooded and in the open. If I can be of assistance ,just let me know.

They have lots and lots of rules and video cameras everywhere to make sure everybody is in compliance. It's not necessarily a bad thing.
