We stayed at the Scenic Hills campground for 3 nights. The first night was on the level near the office. While those sites are roomy, with easy access, we found the lack of privacy and the dust factor not to our liking. We asked for the upper level staying in site #32; a nice level site backing up to the edge of the hill. Wi-fi was spotty at this site. Note: if you walk to the green space that borders the road coming up to that level, the Wi-Fi is excellent. The water pressure and electric were good. While the lower level looks nice, we prefer the upper level, but that's subjective. Overall, we really liked this campground. It is close to Berlin, and walking distance to Troyer's Market. We plan to return to Scenic Hills often. It is the best campground in the area.

Very clean and well maintained campground with nice/helpful staff. Our site #508 was level (504 looked good, too). Some sites were shady, but we opted for a no trees pull-through. Having said that, by mid to late afternoon the VERY nice concrete pad with nice picnic table was in the shade. The neighbors are quiet as there is a cemetery next door. :-) Our only issue was the distance to town. The staff member said if we cut through the cemetery it was only 'a couple of blocks' to town. It was more like 6-8 city blocks which is a good 15-20 min walk. We did not realize until later that dogs are not allowed in the cemetery which meant trekking around it, adding considerable time to our walk. Note: ask in any shop in town for a business map of the area. It shows shops/restaurants, etc. We were not aware of this until the day we left. Maybe there was one in the campground store, but we suspect not based on the info we were given at check-in. All in all, we would go back to lovely Lebanon and would stay in Cedarbrook again.

We stayed in this lovely campground for five nights (site #35). We did not feel the sites were narrow compared to most campgrounds we've visited. The owner was extremely helpful about things to see/do in the area. We so enjoyed watching the Amish farmer across the road. Yes, you will smell farm smells, but that was not a biggie for us. There is a wonderful gift shop at the end of the campground. Don't miss seeing the Mascot Roller Mill and home tour (both free) in Ronks. It's right down the road from the campground. The Bird In Hand bake shop is out in the country a bit, but WELL worth the few miles to get there. We have now decided to revisit Intercourse and the Amish area next year in part due to the wonderful experience we had at Beacon Hill. There are many campgrounds in the area, but Beacon Hill is the best for price, location, and atmosphere. You can walk into town (perhaps 1/2 mile?), and it is a slight uphill walk. Very do-able. You will have to dodge the occasional horse poo along the way. :-) We've stayed in some really poor campgrounds with our travels. It was a pleasure to stay in a good one!

As with previous posters we're rating this CG a 10 for location, as well as the superior staff. They were very friendly and helpful with information about the wineries, things to see/do, etc. The convenience of the lake/shops/town all within walking distance was great. The sites were level, but not overly spacious and/or private. VERY easy to get in/out of the sites. We stayed here 5 nights and would easily stay here again.

This campground is heavily wooded with narrow roads that might be an issue for larger motorhomes. We stayed in a pull-through site right up near the front of the campground which made for easy in/out. The beach and lake are at the far end of the CG where it appears a good many long time seasonal sites are occupied. We were not interested in the lake activities, but can see where families would enjoy what the CG has to offer.

This small campground is in on the outskirts of the town of Archbold. It is well maintained with level sites and plenty of distance between units. Within a 5 min. walking distance you will find a charming country barn restaurant (delicious fried chicken), bakery, and large conference center/inn w/pool. The campers were allowed to use the pool/free. Sauder Village, the recreated historic village was charming. We learned a lot about the western part of our state that we did not previously know. I was surprised to read that Chicago is only 4 hours from Archbold. The turnpike was only 5 mins. from Sauder Village. While we rode through the town of Archbold (which looks very nice), we did not explore it. The area is filled with large farms. There is a walking path from the cg to the town (probably about 2 miles to the center of town as the crow flies). You can see corn and soy beans for as far as the eye can see. It was lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the campground and would easily go back. It's easy in and out with only a few small trees here/there ~ none that should pose a problem for big rigs. Our site was #20 which was electric/water. Note: If you're 30 amp, you are given an adapter when you check in at the inn.

We stayed here twice within a week going to/from Maine. It was an ok cg. The staff was friendly and security was ok (although they did not close the gate as we expected at night). We found the price we paid for NOT having full hook-up a bit steep. Our sites (109 and 110) were level and fine for our 31' MH. Big rigs would have a challenge as the turns were sharp and lots of trees. Sites as you come in on the right would work for larger MH's. On our return stay, it rained cats and dogs and the cg became a swamp in places. Many campers would find they had to step out into water. Our sites were dry. It's a decent place for a 1 night stay, but we've stayed in nicer KOA's. Having said that: we'd stay here again.

Excellent stay at this campground. It is a small, adult's only campground surrounded by wetlands. Quiet and conveniently located, we had a great experience. Big rigs may have a bit of a challenge getting into the cg, but it's do-able. The sites on the center/left as you come in are a bit tight. We stayed in site #25 with our 31'MH. It was nice and level. Site 28 would also be a good choice. We would easily stay here again.

We've camped here several times and overall it's fine for what you pay. Of course we'd like full hook up, but it is what it is ... a nice cg with level sites (esp. on the right of the cg as you come in)and a few sites with trees. Within 10 mins. of the cg is Reston Center with a Harris Teeter grocery store, shopping, (including Home Depot) and restaurants. Great location and good access to DC. We stayed most recently in sites 115 and 119 (119 is longer) but 115 had a tree. The area is heavily wooded, but the cg is not. Staff was friendly and helpful if we asked for directions, etc. Lots of 'kid friendly' things to do if you're into that. We will stay here again. NOTE: they are strict about only ONE car at each site. We appreciate that.

This is a great home base campground for touring the Ohio Amish Country. Very nice staff and lovely grounds. Some of the sites are not super level but if you ask for a corner site (#15 looked good), you should be fine. We stayed in #23, but would ask for #24 which is longer, or one of the corner sites the next time. We did have a fire pit issue with our next door neighbor. They moved their fire pit to within 4 feet of the front of our motorhome and stoked it with wood (some of it wet) from 9 am until 10 pm. It was really unpleasant for us at times but thankfully we were gone most of the day. The staff offered to say something but we asked them not to. Since the folks were leaving the next day we opted to be neighborly and let it go. For those of you who do use fire pits, please think about how it may impact your neighbors. We look forward to coming back to this campground next Spring. Book early if you come as they're often full.

CG is easy to find, staff was nice, and site was fairly level with easy hookups. We stayed in site A12. As other posters have mentioned there is the noise from the train (which does not bother us), but there is also a small horse farm at the other end of the cg and an old cemetery just 2 rows back up on the hill from our site. All in all though, it's fine for a 1 night stay and we'd easily stay here again.

This was a great campground. Our site (#67/ across from the water) was very easy in/out and level. It may not be the best site for a long motor home or fifth wheel, but it was perfect for us. We really liked being able to choose our own site! Since we were near the office, our wifi worked fine. Cable was good as well. As others have mentioned, they have a very friendly staff. We'd easily stay at this resort again.

Date of Stay:

We would rate this a 10, but our cable was out one night (seemed to be an entire campground problem). There was no one to fix it. Our site #128 was a long, level pull through. It was next to the picnic pavilion and trash dumpsters. While it was not a problem while we were there I could see if a party was going on, it could have been. We'd stay there again, but would ask for a different site.

Date of Stay:

Outstanding campground! It's one of the nicest RV resorts we've been to in a long time. It was first class from start to finish. The owner was very friendly and anxious to please. Our site was level and spacious. We were told the WiFi was spotty, but ours worked just fine. Cable was great, too. While the town itself is less than exciting, it was an overall nice stay for us. We'd go back again should we find ourselves in the area. You can't go wrong with this campground.

This is an excellent campground! We could not have been more pleased with our nice level site (up front/same side as the office) and how clean and well-maintained the campground was. It is an easy 10+.
