The New owners are turning this place into kiddie city. This used to be a very nice friendly, clean, we'll run campground. Now if your not booking at least 2 nights they hold open sites till the last moment hoping to get someone looking for 2 or more nights, if they cannot get a 2 night reservation they will give up a 1 night . Events every weekend are drawing in the loud drinkers and rowdy types. If you enjoy Wildwood you'll like this place. After spending many weekends here we are done with this place. - Dan Fong

New owners seem to be un experienced crazy getting site, people in office all mixed up not a smooth process. Sites close all open slots, more like tentville, crazy noisy, was not thrilled will not camp here, no wifi, no sewer, no tv. Definitely better campgrounds to go to in Amish country. - Cbh

This is our 3rd time camping @ Red Run and we really like it here. The creek sites are great, our kids love playing in it. You can fish in the creek or the pond. They have a playground and a basketball net for the kids. The field is a nice place to have a catch with a football or frisbee that the campground provides. We will camp here again. - bcoakley

We stayed at Starlite for two nights in September 2007. We were in space 25. There was rain the day before and the forecast was for scattered showers so I think a lot of people cancelled. There are 16 sites on the road where our site was located and a total of 3 were occupied. That was perfect for us! In that area of the campground the sites are very wooded and pretty large. Even if the site in front of us was occupied, it would have been a decent distance. The sites are very close to each other in most other areas of the campground. Our preference is for a little seclusion. The staff was very friendly - the ice cream was very good! Our beagles enjoyed howling at squirrels. We don't participate in campground activities so I can't offer an opinion there. The site was pretty easy to back our 30' trailer into. The roads aren't very wide but they were all manageable. We would go back if we could get a similar site in the same area of the campground. - BeagleDad

This is a wonderful campground. We camped here last fall, and decided to come back because it was vintage weekend. Since having a vintage motorhome, we drove up. Not too many other vintage campers though. We camped on the mid-plateau area, which is wonderful for its view overlooking the valley, but the only downfall was there is no shade, and it was in the upper 90s all weekend. One of the nicest stocked camp stores I've ever seen. Many seasonal campers, but all were friendly. Nice large sites. The owners and extremely nice as well. One other thing that this campground is in Lancaster County, but it is a distance from the attractions. Yet it is nice and quiet. Unfortunately, we did have to leave a day early due to a family emergency, and the staff was very understanding and helpful. We can't wait to go back! Big rigs- take warning though, the roads are steep and tight coming in. Use low gear! The campground has some steep hills itself, so biking and walking is a good ol' workout. Lastly, there is no description to the view from the plateau sites. One must see for themselves! - Chieftain1986

We loved this campground! If you are looking for scenic views, quiet surroundings, and lots of activities then this is the place. The management was very friendly. Our site was large and had a beautiful view of the local area. We will definitely return as soon as we can. It is hands down the most peaceful campground we have ever been to. Thanks Starlite for a great weekend! - CWG Wife

Basic no frills campground. Owners very friendly. We have camped here several times, no problems. Easy access to major routes. Sites are level, crushed stone, large enough. WiFi and cable reception good. - dkiefer

We stayed 3 nights in site 56. The site is on an outside row. It was near perfect level and had a large fire ring of local stone loosely laid.
Our 30 amp, water, sewer, and cable hookups were fine, however, the wifi was not so good, slow as molasses in January.
This campground is mostly stone, meaning, little vegetation, though the entire campground is under a mature canopy of trees, almost all shaded. There's a little playground to the rear of the grounds. The sites are close together in the interior, and there are numerous rather permanent setups. - majorairhead

The campground has many trees throughout the park. The roads and sites are gravel. Roads are narrow and there are many obstacles (trees) that make backing into a site not easy. The entire CG is on a slope and the sites are not very level; additional leveling blocks are needed. There are many long term/permanent RVs with the usual over landscaping or excessive junk. It is generally quiet with only an occasional plane or faint train horn. Our first stay (3 years ago) was pleasant, this time was different; Labor Day weekend. Friday afternoon the CG filled up with noisy families looking for their end of summer trip. Management did not patrol the CG to monitor the barking dogs, children running around or make any attempt at enforcing the rules. The campsites are fairly large gravel but it still feels crowded. Picnic table, fire ring and typical 20/30/50 electric. Water quality is good but pressure varied from 60 psi to very low. Basic cable channels from Blue Ridge Communications. Internet is free with strong WiFi signal but connections were slow at best and quite often did not work at all. T-Mobile hot spot did not work. The laundry room is in a basement with two tired looking top loaders; went elsewhere. Single stall showers in poor condition, same for the restrooms. The staff is friendly and competent in the office. The CG has organized events; Labor Day pot luck. This is one of the cheaper CGs in the area. - Wiyndog

Read post about here and let's not forget we're camping. Nice big level lot. Plenty to do with a very clean pool. You do have to bring your own chair, not the end of the world. Restroom by us could easily be updated to take care of the negative post but it was clean. We'll be back. - wpagejr

We stayed in C-loop - which are the nicest campsites in the entire campground (non-seasonal). The rest of the campground is full of junky seasonal sites. The playground equipment is very dated/rusty and falling apart. The bathhouses are dated and need to be upgraded. Separate shower stalls are next to the bathhouses - and you have to pay for a shower. Very limited sites with sewer, rest of the campground is water/electric. They have a very nice pool, but the Lifeguard took no initiative to control wild or unruly kids. Their fee schedule is set-up to cahrge extra for everything - visitors, use of your A/C unit in the summertime - that is the only downside on their rates. - Lspajm

This campground is overrun by golf carts. If you have kids, beware! Seasonal sites are allowed to have a golf cart. Many of them race around all day and play bumper cars. No beer is allowed off of the campsite. It looked like a golf cart convention blocking the office doors when I went up for firewood. Everyone had a beer and cigarette on their golf cart. Very unsafe to drink and drive. Believe me, these people are juiced up. Kids try to feed the ducks at the pond and the drunks come racing past to scare the ducks away. Roads are very bad with many holes. Many sites get flooded. This owner needs to improve his safety and conditions for this campground. - Jakari

Camped here Memorial Day Weekend, 2009. Minimum reservation of 2 nights which is reasonable. Site was not level, but saw that most sites were level. Our site, though not level was creekside and was very private and very beautiful. Overall, the campground was very well maintained. Only two major complaints: during the day we did have some kids playing in the creek behind our site, which was essentially part of our site. Also, the campground is obviously geared toward seasonal campers, and there was NOTHING to do. No trails, nothing. Would be great for families with kids, and the staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. We were very pleased with our experience, just wish there were more activities for adults on the grounds. - KStar1926

Nice friendly staff, nice small pond, close to many antique shops and flea markets. Only dislike were most sites are stone covered and kind of dusty, grass would have been much nicer for the dogs. - Dan Fong

We were never informed that the cabins were not equipped with linens or towels. We were pleasantly surprised to have Saturday night entertainment of a Rodeo and also a great ice cream store. We found the camp very well maintained and management very helpful in directing us to near by stores. - lois c

We stayed here while visiting with family. The campground is conveniently located from the 76 Turnpike. Receptionist was very friendly and helpful. Our site was gravel, large, and very clean, with the exception of some cigarette butts left by an earlier camper. We stayed here for nearly two weeks and enjoyed it. Even though there were many seasonal sites, it was always peaceful and serene. Laundry facilities were clean and fairly priced, and the fishing pond had a nice walking trail around it. We would definitely stay here again. - Gina and Bill

We camped here for 4 nights. Wweren'te switched sites to a site on the river after the weekend crowd left. beautiful site with a working Amish farm right across the river. very nice campground right next to Dutch Wonderland amusement park. sites are kinda close together but with ample room. you're not rubbing elbows with your neighbor. they say there's cable but we were not able to hook up on either of the two sites we were on. we used the antenna and was able to receive bout 15 stations with Philly being right down the road. wifi was excellent on both our sites. would definitely recommend it and would stay here again. great proximity to the Amish country. - Banditoman60

Mature shade trees, beautiful PA farm views from last row, strong Wi-Fi, level site. All around nice place. Dutch Wonderland, for kids 3-10, is right next door. I liked staying here. Traffic on US30 is very congested due to 3 major routes intersecting in Lancaster as well as an overabundance of outlet malls, fast food restaurants and motels. If you can fight the traffic successfully, you will find this campground worth the battle. - User3064

This is a very clean park. The facilities are some of the best we have seen. Heated in winter, a/c in summer.
The rates are high....although the campground is very well maintained and has excellent bathhouse/facilities and many of them. They don't offer anything...it's all about location. It's JUST a well maintained campground with a game room and a small playground. If you plan to go to Dutch Wonderland this is the place to camp. It's a 5 minute walk from the campground. The staff was friendly this year. We will stay here again...despite the high rates. - User3758

The park is very small, but nice and clean. The sites are hard to get into because they are not angled. We had to move our vehicle several times so that it was not hit by other RVers backing into their sites. The owners are very nice and came by many times to make sure we were happy. The owners dog is not friendly and tried to get at my dogs a few times. A leash would solve the problem. The area around the campground is mainly Amish. It is very peaceful. - browncat

We have stayed here in the past and will come back again. Some sites in the middle row are tight back to back for large units. Space between sites is much better than average. Everything worked fine. We looked at several other parks in the area and there is one other that we may consider but it's at least $10 per night higher. There are a number of semi permanent residents but except for a lot of cigarette butts, not a problem. Will stay here again. - Bojangles

The roads are difficult to navigate once the park is full. The spaces are very tight. We had to move our truck several times so a motorhome could get past our site. Another motorhome was being led in by the owner and scraped the side of his rig with a basketball hoop. If we had wanted to leave before most other people left on the weekend, we would have had to asked several others to move their truck so we could get our rig out.
Since the sites are small and tight, there was not adequate parking for the tow vehicle. No "true" pull through sites. The first one gets to pull through, the second one gets backed right up to them.
WiFi had inadequate bandwidth for the number of rigs in the park. In the wee hours when most were asleep, it worked OK. On days when few rigs were there, it worked OK. When the park fills up, the WiFi is almost unusable and that was extremely frustrating. You are given individual logins, up to 3. So if you have more devices (laptops, tablets, phones), you can't use them. I believe a sign said that you can add them for $2 a day.
The owners were very nice and pleasant to work with. However, that did not change the physical constraints of the park or the poor WiFi.
Cable is an extra $5 per night and is not digital. There's an extra charge to run your air and use the WiFi if you are not staying for a week.
The location was very convenient to explore the Amish Countryside but this would not be my first choice to stay again due to the poor WiFi and the tight spaces. - jpainter01

As many other have stated, the sites are small as in: we were just able to park our jeep across the front of our rig. Our site was a pull through, very interesting layout, the street is a dead end and you simply pull in off the road to the site. There are additional back in sites across from the pull through sites. Some appear to be seasonal as they have a deck. CG is quiet.
We were visited Saturday afternoon by a young Amish girl pulling a wagon full of fresh baked goods and jams. Bought a ShooFly Pie, a jar of Chow-Chow and a jar of strawberry jam. Very good!! We did not avail ourselves of any of the facilities, but given how nicely everything else is kept, I am confident they are also up to par. The person that checked us in was exceedingly pleasant. We would stay here again. - blues traveler

Nice Base Camp for Pennsylvania Dutch area. Small sites, once trailer on site could not leave truck there, hard to park in lot or on street behind campground. Amish family came around on Friday and Saturday evening to sell baked goods. Cool Experience, tasted good too. Very close to Kitchen Kettle Shops. Outlet shopping 15 minutes away. - doghouse traveler

Tight campground in the heart of Amish Country. Kind caretakers who were helpful. The hosts provided me a site where I could back in my fifth wheel easily. Some sites might be tough to back in due to the set up of the campground, nonetheless; I can highly recommend due to the location and price. Intercourse is the perfect jumping off point to gain the "Amish" experience. - Tim101

This is by far the cleanest and friendliest staffed campground we stayed at this year. The grounds were well kept, the bathrooms were cleaned daily and overall the campers around us were quiet and well behaved. There were no problems with any of the hook ups, very good selection of cable channels and the WiFi actually worked well. The only suggestion that would make this campground any better would be to space out the sites somewhat more that what they are now. We did not use the pool because it was closed. We would definitively stay here again. - dadseven

This campground is very easy to get to and easy in/out. We had a large pull thru site (#876). Plenty of space between sites. 50 amp, water, sewer, cable (70 channels). Decent wifi most of the time. Very nice pool, but not heated. Laundry room has 2 washers ($1.75) and 3 dryers ($.50 for 30 minutes). Best prices we have seen in a while. This is one of the nicest campgrounds we have been in the Northeast. Depending on the time of year, you might be parked next to a corn field. The campground is very well maintained. They watered the gravel roads everyday while we were there to hold the dust down. I would have given it a 10, but the price is kind of high for what you get. Would have liked a discount, but none available. - Cliff-fa-fa

We've stayed here before four years ago. It is closed to everything. Everyone was great and helpful with finding the different things to do. WiFi was decent. We only wish there were more sites available with cable. - 1dinky
