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.
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.
Tips for other Campers:
Many things to do in the area, some touristy and some real. Driving, biking or walking the back roads reveals country life.

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!

This is a very clean & pretty landscaped park. We had an easy pull through site off of the main road. Staff are very nice & helpful with information on places to visit in the area. We enjoyed watching the buggies come & go on the main road & watching the farmer across the road. Amish girls come to the park selling their baked goods which are so delicious. We would stay here again. We camped at Beacon Hill Campground (Ages16+) in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites are gravel surrounded by grass and the gravel portion is level. Campground is on a hill, and has great views. Utilities, including WIFI, are fine. Bathrooms and grounds are very clean. Staff and other campers are very friendly. Location is quiet yet close to lots to do. Surrounded by Amish farmland. We enjoyed watching them bale hay then spread manure across the street. This is a great place, wish we were staying longer. We camped here in a fifth wheel. We camped at Beacon Hill Campground (Ages16+) in a Fifth Wheel.

Small adult park. Pretty easy to get level, some spots have decks, lower section is best for big rigs. Has good power, water, WiFi, a nice pet area, is close to things, yet out of town a bit. Loved watching the horse drawn buggies from our site. And we loved the area. We would go back if in the area. We camped at Beacon Hill Campground (Ages16+) in a Motorhome.
This is a lovely adults only campground in a great location. The team running the site are really friendly and helpful. The campground is split into 2 halves and we stayed in both. The lower area is for larger than 34 foot motorhome and the upper has a 34 foot maximum. Each is really nice in its own way - the upper area has a very nice intimate feel. The pads are smaller in the upper area but plenty of space for us with a 34 footer. Each pad has tree shade. The views from the whole campsite are great. This is right in the middle of Amish country and young Amish girls come around the campground in their horse and wagon selling home baked goods and root beer. The site is quiet and yet close to Intercourse. We loved it and would definitely go back. We camped at Beacon Hill Campground (Ages16+) in a Motorhome.
This park is beautifully maintained. Owners are very helpful and pleasant. Laundry room small but adequate and clean. Sites are a little snug with parking a vehicle, but very doable. We had a nice back-in site on the lower level which had a deck #31. The location was great for seeing all the sights in the Amish country. Rode Amtrak from Lancaster to Philadelphia for the day. Excellent way to go without hassle of driving and parking in a large city. Amish farm across the street, fun to watch them plant their new crop for the summer. Stayed 2 weeks and definitely would come back. We camped at Beacon Hill Campground (Ages16+) in a Motorhome.
Perfect place to stay in every way. Would recommend this to any adult. The people are so helpful. They have cabins, too. Was just wonderful country. Can walk to town. Can take evening walks out around the beautiful Amish farms. This campgrounds was pretty, clean, and you would love it as much as we did. We did not want to leave. A lot of return people camp here. There is no way anyone (adult only) could find anything wrong here We camped at Beacon Hill Campground (Ages16+) in a Fifth Wheel.

Location is great for our use, close to things we wanted to do. Sites and roads are gravel and the park is on a hill so when it rains the gravel washes down to the lower part. We are at the very bottom of the hill/park. Side to side was off level about 2 1/2 inches. Voltage and water pressure is good. Also, WiFi is very good. It is the best value in the area. Monthly rate is $900 that includes electric since they have no meters. Still a little pricey. We are done with this part of PA so we won't be back.

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!
