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. We camped at Beacon Hill Campground (Ages16+) in a Fifth Wheel.

An Amish family came around at night offering baked and canned goods at reasonable prices. Not good for my weight, but good for the soul. There are a few bus tours that we enjoyed. A place called "The Amish Experience" provides tour packages.

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. We camped at Beacon Hill Campground (Ages16+) in a Travel Trailer.

You'll enjoy eating your way through the Amish country! Great roadside farms for fresh fruits and veggies; many places to buy excellent baked goods. Countryside Roadstand on Stumptown Road has the best soft pretzels around! Several very good smorgasboards close by--Shady Maple was excellent the two times we went.

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. We camped at Beacon Hill Campground (Ages16+) in a Motorhome.

Location, Location, Location is what it has going for it. Walking distance into Intercourse. Proximity close to roads and highway. Sites very close together and our site was extremely un-level. Termed a pull-thru but there was no possible way I was going to be able to navigate twisty descending un-level road way to use site as a pull through with a 40ft fiver. Transition from road to site was so un-level that ladder and hydraulic stabilizer dragged ground and I had to put wood under my wheels to raise fiver to leave site without damaging fiver as I pulled out. Truly don't see this campground as practical for units over about 36ft. We camped at Beacon Hill Campground (Ages16+) in a Fifth Wheel.

We have been to this park twice this year. The park is small and so are the spots. We were there over Labor Day and the park was full. We had to move our truck several times to help people get in and out. They do have several pull thru spots that accommodated a 42+ Prevost next to us and the office does a good job matching your size with the right spot. Bathrooms were always clean and the laundry room looked new with large washers and dryers. There is wifi, but no cable. It was not an issues since there were many over the air channels. We enjoy this park because you can walk the 1/2 mile to the main part of Intercourse. It also directly across the street from an Amish farm. We enjoyed sitting outside and watching them harvest the corn with the manual farm equipment and horses. There are always horses and buggy's going up and down the main street to town. In addition, we had several visits from Amish women and kids that were selling pies, root beer, cookies and other treats. We never felt pressured to purchase anything, but we could never pass it up. Everything is tasty and enjoyable. We will always come back to this park when we visit Intercourse and the surrounding areas. We camped at Beacon Hill Campground (Ages16+) in a Fifth Wheel.

A unique and delightful campground, not a fancy resort.
Right next to a working Amish farm, with all the smells and
activity related to a farm. Tight spaces, but not a problem
in or out. Perfect location to visit Intercourse and the
surrounding area. Quiet, picturesque, bucolic rural campground.
The clip-clop of horse drawn carriages thru the day and central
location to visit the area makes this a wonderful place to
stay. We will be back.... We camped at Beacon Hill Campground (Ages16+) in a Motorhome.

I was a little bit disappointed with the appearance of the place since the new owners took over. The problem is that they are a little lax in keeping the rules in place. We were uncomfortable with the many cars allowed to park on the grass. It was obvious people had pit fires by the burn marks. The gravel areas had weeds. I may seem picky but I want to see this place return to perfection. We WILL return. We camped at Beacon Hill Campground (Ages16+) in a Motorhome.

Person who checked me in was friendly. Spaces are fairly well separated from your neighbors, but the actual pad is relatively small. You won't be able to remain hooked up if your total length is over 45 ft. There is no addition parking. The price obviously reflects being in Amish country and is still high in my opinion. The price reflects a $3 surcharge for 50 amp service. WIFI was pretty good. We camped at Beacon Hill Campground (Ages16+) in a Fifth Wheel.

Great If You Like Lots of Bird Droppings.

The campground has two levels. The upper level accommodates RV's that are less than 35' in length. The upper level has lots of big trees and a great deal of shade. The lower level is more suited to big rigs and has little shade. We chose a site on the upper level and we were not forewarned about the massive amount of bird droppings we would encounter early each evening when thousands of birds (not exaggerating -- looked like a scene from a horror movie) came in to roost for the night. Our truck and travel travel ended up covered in bird droppings. By the time we were able to get to a location where we could wash our vehicles, both had been damaged by the huge amount of bird droppings. It was impossible to sit, cook, or eat outside. The amount of bird droppings certainly spoiled our stay. The campground is in a good location for visiting the Lancaster area and is well maintained. Would have given a much higher rating if not for the bird droppings. We would also been glad to select a site in the lower area if we had been forewarned of the problem at check-in. We camped at Beacon Hill Campground (Ages16+) in a Travel Trailer.

Camped in a 45 motor home with tow car. Sites on upper level are not long enough for big rigs. Most sites on the lower level are. Some precise driving is required, but doable. If you have a big rig, DO NOT proceed to the upper level. Park in the road or across the street down the hill in the large parking lot and walk to the office. If towing, disconnect before entering the lower level. Office staff very helpful and personable. Interior roads and site drives are gravel. Nice amount of grass and landscaping between neighbors. Some shade offered on some sites especially in the upper level. Verizon Wireless 2 bars. Satellite TV was no problem at our site and appears to be possible at most sites on the lower level. Free Wi-Fi was good with reasonable speed. Long walking distance to village of Intercourse. We camped at Beacon Hill Campground (Ages16+) in a Motorhome.

Rate is for a week. Nice quite park. Electric and water is good. Lots to do here in the area. No smell from the farm across the street. Everyone and staff are friendly and helpful. The lots are small and some are hard to get into with a long RV. The pull thru sites are not long enough to have your auto hooked up to. Only a few lower sites have trees so if you have a satellite for TV ask for a clear site. They will help you if they can. Place stays busy so reserve in advance. Would stay here again if in the area. Really a nice quite place. We camped at Beacon Hill Campground (Ages16+) in a Motorhome.

Nice people. Pull-in sites right from road are mostly level. The back-in sites seemed tight for larger rigs. Great location to see all of the Amish country. I didn't notice any 'smells' from the farm next door. We would stay here again. We camped at Beacon Hill Campground (Ages16+) in a Motorhome.

This small RV park is in a great location, just a few blocks walk into the tourist part of Intercourse PA. It's across the street from an Amish farm, so be prepared for all the smells that come with farms! The Wi-Fi worked pretty well, and we received all the usual over-the-air TV channels with our antenna. They have portable fire pits you can borrow to have a campfire. Sites are a little on the small side. They have a small dog park area only for one family at a time. Owners are friendly, neighbors are friendly. It's a good central location to visit various parts of Lancaster County. We camped at Beacon Hill Campground (Ages16+) in a Motorhome.

Love this place! Beautiful. Landscaped with flowers. Beautiful grass. Level gravel sites, picnic tables, and Fire pit. Owners are fantastic, friendly and accommodating. The park is close to a variety of activities. It was fun watching the horse and buggies passing by the park. Would go there again and again and again!
