37 Parks near Intercourse, Pennsylvania

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

Stayed here two weeks in June 2016 and found it to be an excellent place from which to tour Lancaster County and surrounding areas. Reasonably close to places such as Longwood Gardens; even Philadelphia for a day trip is not out of the question depending upon your feelings about using a "home base" from which to tour. However, we mostly toured the Amish area. The campground was well-kept, service was excellent and the owners were very friendly and responsive. It is quiet; getting into certain spaces can be a bit tight. We would absolutely stay here again if in the area. - Edistobob

We stayed here for one night on the way home from Washington DC. Very nice small campground with good access and within walking distance to the village of intercourse. The campground sits on a hill overlooking a working Amish farm across the road. The service was great, very nice people, reasonable rates, very clean facilities. We were sitting by the fire at dusk when the amish people passed by on their buggies not 20 feet away and gave you a nod, a smile, and a wave as they passed by.
We were in the upper section with our 31' motor home. There was some shade on our site. The sites were tight as stated in previous reviews but doable. I would most definitely recommend staying here if you're in the area and would stay here again if we were to return. - Banditoman60

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

We arrived at midnight after a long drive and unfortunately missed the envelope with our name on it taped to the door of the office. I ended up calling and waking up the proprietor, but he was very nice in saying "look on the door." Sheesh. So sorry, sir! They had everything we needed ready for us including a map with the route to our site highlighted. We liked the carded vehicle entry; while not highly secure it at least deters the wayward soul looking for mischief.
Midnight and with a full moon we whispered while we worked to unhook our teardrop and climb in.
Our site was perfect! It was half gravel and half grass with fire ring, 30/50 amp and water. We were lucky enough to get a sit with huge oaks shading our unit. We had and a little path to the bathhouse which was immaculate and even had toilet seat covers! Our side of the campground paralleled open fields of corn in bloom, which we beautiful.
We couldn't have been more pleased. We didn't partake in the swimming pool, but did have a look and it is well equipped with chairs and umbrellas as well as a shallow and deep side separated. - Cyclefitness

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

This is a great park that we have visited 4 times each time perfect. Highly recommended as the owners know how to treat people correctly. We loved the Amish farm view adjacent to the park. - Hotairballoonist

This is a small campground located right next to a farm. Sites are level with dirt/gravel pads. Our electric and water hookups were on the opposite side of our rv, but we were able to position it so that our 25 foot electric cord would reach. There is a creek that runs past one side of the campground and fishing is allowed. Staff is friendly and helpful. - JC06

This is a small quiet campground. Our site was dirt/gravel that backed up to the creek and was level. Our site had nice tree cover which was nice for our dogs to stay in the shade. There are sites right in front of the office that don't have any shade so we were glad we didn't have one of those. It is next to a working farm. It was nice to sit by the campfire and hear the horse and buggy go by on the road. Very peaceful. An Amish family came around selling hand crafted items in the evening. Very close to activities of Lancaster and Strasburg. Staff was pleasant on checking in. Pool was clean but not heated. We would stay here again. - joinpa

Small family campground. If you make a reservation by phone, you may choose your site and if it's available you get it. Friendly staff, clean restrooms. I had trouble with the cable, and someone came within minutes to help. Pool has many lounges but only one umbrella, so if you like the sun, you're good. Many sites along creek. One area for large RV's is basically in the center of parking lot. Most other sites are under shade trees. One thing to beware of is that next door there is a farm and a few times while there we got the odors of what a farm smells like. I may also depend where your site is, so do your research carefully. On the weekend, you can expect an Amish family to come by with a cart of handmade items for sale. Close to many of Lancaster County's things to do. For me this was a 10 because of our needs. But I try to tell it like it is so that others can decide for themselves. - CapeGreen

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

This is a little gem hiding behind the Dutch Wonderland attraction. Dutch Wonderland and the park are now owned by an investment firm, but the campground has not suffered from it. FHU site was amazingly level. All utilities worked properly. Bath houses are tiled floor and walls. They were kept super clean. We only stayed over night, and we were well rested in the morning. - moderate camper

This is a small, clean campground with a spectacular view of Amish farm country. The sites near the roadway are spacious, and you can watch lots of horse-and-buggy traffic; that also means a good deal of vehicle noise. The other sites are crowded. If you are looking for things to do on site, this is not the campground for you. There is no pool, game room, camp store, or activities, like many other KOA Campgrounds. The owners are rather unfriendly and VERY STERN about the rules. They charge $6 per person and $5 per car for visitors. No dog runs are permitted, and dogs cannot be tied to trees. They asked us to move our outdoor rug off the grass at night. The location was somewhat inconvenient to local attractions, all of which were at least a 20-minute drive away. Because there are so many other campgrounds in the area, we'll stay somewhere else next time. We are frequent visitors to the area. - Sophie F

This campground is the place you need to go if you want to experience the Amish and Mennonite experience. No matter which way you turn out of the campground, within minutes you will come across Amish buggies or Amish children walking home from school or see the men behind their beautiful working horses tending their beautiful rich soil. Close by you will find stands selling fresh veggies and fruit or freshly cut flowers. The views out across the valleys are very nice and just begging for you to take a photo or two.
I have stayed at numerous KOA campgrounds from Mount Rushmore to South Florida and this is one of the very best. The lots are spacious and offer some shade. Sites are gravel and feature a fire ring, picnic table and patio. The owners work hard to keep this campground prestine. It shows in every direction you look. Our interactions with the owners were perfect. - Monkei

This was our third visit to this campground and we enjoyed it very much. The view is spectacular and many things to do in the area. The owners have added some cabins since last year and they seemed to be very popular. Some people complain about the rules but as I have said before we had no problem and the owners very nice. We will definitely return when in the area. - John & Bobbie

Our site was out in the open closeby an Amish farm. Just a gorgeous open view of the cornfield and blue silos in the distance. Very beautiful and serene for us southern CA people. We used the laundry facility which was clean enough, but a bit pricey compared to one we used at a KOA in MO. The owner and staff were very helpful. It's reasuring to see them cruising the campground in the gold cart on the lookout for anything that may need their attention. Needless to say, this campground is clean, well tended to and a plus, no unruly people making noise. Our site was pretty level as far as gravel sites go, and it was very clean. We did not have a toad. - CAcamping

We stayed for 4 nights. The sites are gravel and a little uneven but we did not have any significant problems. It rained during our stay so sites were a little muddy and had some leftover pools of water. Hosts were friendly and helpful. Limited cable but a good signal. WiFi was available and worked. We enjoyed our stay especially since it wasn't crowded. There seems to be little to do for children, though they are building a pool area. We would absolutely stay there again. - Happy Camper 168

Small campground in the middle of Amish country in Lancaster County PA. Our site was a pull through. The site was level but the ground between the sites had quite a bit of slope to it. We had FHU's and the WiFi worked OK most of the time. There is very little to do in the park, but the area if full of shopping & attractions. Lancaster PA is a few miles west with a lot of historical sites. The campground is next to a large Amish farm and you can see them plowing the fields with horse draw equipment most days. - Co-Mike

After a horrible experience at another local campground, we called around to find another campground. The staff on the phone was so sympathetic and wonderful trying to help us. After a one night stay in a hotel we checked into here. The staff are wonderful and helpful. The cabin beautiful. The campground is beautiful and serene. Wi-Fi and cable are included, unlike the other campground. We would definitely recommend this place to others as well as stay here ourselves again. - Camper08724

We stay at Spring Gulch with friends every year for a long weekend. The sites are classified as "Elite" although I can't imagine why, they are just gravel covered sites with an unremarkable picnic table. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The heavy tree cover helps keep the area cool, but prevents satellite TV reception. We always bring the golf cart, because it's long, long distance to the office. The campground is convenient to all the local tourist attractions. - WMSmith

The park was very nice and clean. It has two swimming pools, tennis court playground and beautiful spots in the woods. I would recommend this camp ground anytime. - seibertman

A work in progress. We had tried a couple of other campgrounds and they were full. These folks were very friendly and we stayed with them three nights. Once you get to the sites for transients, it is quiet and peaceful. Getting there was hair raising, zigging and zagging up dirt/gravel switchback roads. We were three levels up. Many permanent sites on the lower levels. The utilities were on the wrong side on our site although others were OK. Power supply was only 105 volts and kept kicking the breaker. Only 30 amp service. Luckily we didn't need the air at this time of year. Site was level and there was a nice/steep beginning walking trail. The restrooms need major work, probably replaced. Hubby checked them and said privacy was non existent with shower curtain dividers. At $40 it sufficed but probably won't return. - elaine170

Very friendly and accommodating. Large private sites. Playground is at the lower end and seemed to be nice. We did not come to Lancaster to use the campground facilities we came here to explore the Amish food, shops and the Sight and Sound Theater. We will stay here again. - Oldman5145

Very small campground appears to be new owners trying to make some changes. Huge sites, definitely not your average site layout. They go everywhere. Switchback road through the campground. Absolutely nothing to do here except what is at your site or in the area. May be better in a few years. - Hammerx4

This park is very nicely situated in the Amish country around Lancaster, PA. We stopped here to break up a long trip home from the Finger Lakes area of New York. It is quiet, shady and very pleasant. It was a very good choice after a long drive and the pool provided relief from the stifling heat and humidity. The sight of Amish buggies driving through the campground was a treat for my 12-year old nephew. - Hmuse

We stayed with a family group. Family said the bathrooms should be rebuilt. Water was shut off Sunday afternoon. I think they were repairing the system. Very nice clean pool. New owners, just arrived one month ago. Nice people. I would give them a chance to work on the improvements before I passed judgement. Wifi spotty at camp edge, but otherwise good. Playground. Activities. Remote and scenic. Farms and farm odors nearby. Creek is too shallow for boating or fishing, but the have a nice large pond for kayaks or fishing. - Denial Guru

Here in off season, park was not crowded, We had lots of space. The sights along the creek are nice but very close together. - doghouse traveler
