40 RV Parks near Lancaster, Pennsylvania
Apr 2018 - $52.00
This is a beautiful campground with nice views of farmland. We saw lots of cows grazing each day just across the stream. The campsites are spacious and we had a good amount of space separation from our neighbor. Check in was quick and easy and the staff was friendly. The campground is connected to Dutch Wonderland which we took our kids to one day. It was really nice to just walk over to the park and not have to drive or pay for parking. There is so much to see and do in the area. Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile all worked great. We enjoyed our stay and would stay there again if we are ever in that area again. - Love2Camp777

We camp quite a bit in the Lancaster PA area but this was the first time we have stayed at Old Mill Stream. We had numerous activities planned for the weekend in Lancaster and used the campground as a home base. Unfortunately it was super cold the weekend we stayed so we couldn't sit outside and enjoy a campfire at night. Campground is super convenient to all the Lancaster area activities. Due to the cold the campground was shutting off the water at night. No issue with Verizon cell service. Cable was sufficient, site 123 had tree cover that blocked satellite signal. The main entrance/exit of the campground goes through the Dutch Wonderland parking lot, while the amusement park was closed while we were there I could see getting in and out an issue based on the daily park attendance. - SJEAGLES609

Staff were friendly and the campground was well layed out. Surprisingly quiet for its location near an amusement park and a shopping mall. Sites were fairly close together - however trees helped provide some privacy. - JR Tampa

Some sites spacious, others crowded, not level but only took couple of boards on one side. WiFi didn't work...said wrong password and staff said " it should work". Not well designed. Host building about 1/2 mile away. Pick your own site. - Marie Hodgdon

Huge Thousand Trails park on the outskirts of Lancaster. As soon as someone leaves another takes their site day or night.
The site we were in wasn't very level. We were probably half a mile from the highway which is pretty busy for a 2 lane road. The exit is on a hill entering a curve so it is not the best.
Park is pretty quiet considering it is so busy. - mrracechaser

Staff very friendly, grounds clean and well maintained, paved park roads, most all the sites are gravel & dirt that need updating. Talking to some employees, they are making improvements, and they stay full most of the summer. Several campers in our area were empty during the week and used on the weekends. Outdoor pool is huge and it needs to be, well used every afternoon! Large arcade with a good variety of games (pricey though). Small laundry area, needs updating but it was functional. A little road noise from the 2-lane on the other side of the river. Camp store pretty well stocked, but bring your own adult beverages, none available. Some of the rules need better enforcement, but that happens just about everywhere in a TT park. Overall, for a TT park, it's pretty nice. AT&T was good, Verizon Jetpack showed good signal but was still very slow. Park wifi is non existent at the sites. - Kerry B

The only good aspect of this campground is the cable and WiFi. It appeared the majority (90%) of campers were permanent residents. The roads had poor drainage, the gravel area for fifth wheel was to narrow. When you stepped out of camper, you stepped in mud. We were told if you want to use a rug it has to be on the gravel so we didn't even bother to get rug out. The dog walk was about 30 yards long by 3 ft wide and that is being generous. All sites are back ins and not on an angle so very unfriendly for big rigs ( ours is 38 ft fifth wheel). There was minimal parking for truck after backed in camper. Looked at other campgrounds in area and we were sad we did not stay at one of them. Will not stay here again. - P Ardis

This is not a resort. It is a smaller, older but very well maintained park. All sites are back-in's and fair sized. Parking the 1 ton truck perpendicular in front of the fifth-wheel was required by staff and made the road through a bit narrow. The laundry facilities were spotless. Here's what will get us to return here without a moment's hesitation: The Management. We arrived with a trailer repair issue and had to rent a car. Without great detail let me say these folks are the nicest, most accommodating, generous, helpful husband & wife team we've yet met during our four years of travel. Give this park your consideration...it's worth it! - TPDBOB8687

I must say we really enjoyed our stay here. Found the campground very appealing with the Amish farms that backed up to our site and the place seemed to have a country charm. Sites 20 through 42 back up to Amish farms and yes there is farm smells here. One thing of note if you valve your space or privacy this place may not be to your liking, sites are very tight with little space between sites which is most likely why they have a no campfire policy here. Also no mats allowed on grass. In addition most vehicles/tow vehicles had to T up at their sites because of lack of space. This may also create a blocking problem for some of the larger Rv's having to get into their sites. Geography at the campground was open to lightly wooded and very level. Camp roads are packed dirt and well grated. Campsites that we noticed had crushed stone. Our full hookups were in good working order. Camp store was well stocked. Bathrooms and showers were very clean. Showers have plenty of hooks, space and a bench to put your stuff on. Staff was friendly and informative. Seasonal sites were decently maintained, transient campers friendly and respectful. Good signal on our Verizon cell, briefly used Wifi which seemed slow to load up. We enjoyed this campground and would return or recommend this place to anyone. - mdcamping

Nice quaint little RV park next to a farm. It has some historical significance as there is a mill and a wooden bridge on the property.
No asphalt, just dirt roads...so its dusty on dry days.
There is a creek that runs on two sides of the park and the sites are big enough where you can sit outside and enjoy the water.
People are very pleasant and there are work/stay programs here.
Not enough 50 amp sites but plenty of 30 amp sites.
Off RT 30 and secluded enough to enjoy the quiet. - Dmann1

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

This is an immaculate RVPark! The entrance is very convenient and the roads are packed gravel and are wide with no big trees to scrape your coach. The sites are very very spacious and easy to back into. The grass is lush and green with no weeds and is nicely cut. The front office is very nice with lovely landscaping. Out buildings are new. The pool wasn't open but it looked great! Even though the park backs on to a highway, it is buffered by homes and it was not an issue. Check-in was simple and very pleasant and the Hershey Choc Bar was a sweet touch. A very country like setting, quiet and fantastic for our Shelties. Excellent Wifi and satellite reception. Would highly recommend this park!! - Mobee

We visited for a weekend with our son and his partner. The campground is very well maintained and the staff was friendly. The new bathrooms near the pool were SPECTACULAR. The pool was not open yet but looked lovely - will return for it! We liked the free VIP program option and look forward to staying nine nights for a free breakfast. The VIP card we got was also good for discounts at various local businesses. And - the free Hershey bar for joining was awesome on our S'Mores. We find sites 850 and 851 to be great to set up space in the between to be close to each other. There was some road noise from route 30 but nothing horrible. - AJ Empty Nest

Wonderful park, very clean and well kept also a great staff. They added a new building near the pool which will be a great addition, looked like a counter service that will probably be opened when the pool is and a nice big room for events. The only thing they could improve on would be to widen the mouth of the sites a little so you do not back over the grass. We will return. - DBLR

We camped at Beacon Hill Campground for two nights. The campground is very small but lovely. Very well kept and very clean. The sites are tight and close together but the beauty is that you are nestled between two beautiful Amish farms that are breathtaking. The area is very quite, the only sounds are the clicking of the horse and buggies that go by or the sounds of cows mooing while looking down into the farm The bathrooms, showers and laundry area are spotless. Even though the campground feels a little crowded you are also walking distance to the lovely town of Intercourse. We had full hook-ups and wifi (wifi a little slow but ok). We really enjoyed our stay and would return. The best sites are on the upper level. Sites 1 to 9 are the best. The lower level looks more like a crowded parking lot but it can take the bigger rigs. Our site was just long enough for our 28ft. trailer. You are unable to also fit your vehicle, but you can park your vehicle in parking area right across the sites, just a few steps away. - surveyor

Well run, pleasant park. Our front window overlooked a field where we saw the farmer tilling with a team of mules, and the quiet side road with the clip clip of the occasional horse and buggy. The side/rear windows overlooked the lovely countryside. - D and M

Have stayed here before, and would like to return. Agree with the last several posts, good location and friendly people in the heart of Amish country. We had what I would describe as a pull in, back out site. The interior road can be quite tight because of parked vehicles. - mroswell

Very well kept park. Quiet and by a nice Creek. Lady running the park is nice and helpful. The only downside is that if you are in the area for the Amish experience the park is a long way out. Going back and forth takes quite a bit of time. - FarmerDan

Very peaceful campground. I usually stay at a site in the lower end of the campground, by the creek. Surprisingly not many bugs. The managers, husband and wife are very nice people. Well stocked store, nice price on firewood which they will deliver right to your site. There are sites up the hill and in the woods, but they are mostly seasonal campers. All in all a very nice place to relax. Will definitely be returning!!!! - slomotion039

Pit toilets. Lower areas are nice. But sites on top of the hill are rough and have older RVs, tarps, refrigerators, ect. No on-site sewer. Seasonals are cheap, with a waiting list. But you can only come weekends, and one two week period per season. The area is scenic. Hosts are very nice. No pool. Minimal playground. Big grassy areas for kids to play. Generally clean, but needs real bathrooms. - Denial Guru

This is a lovely, tree shaded campground with really nice amenities. There's a Church Service on Sunday (church bells ring - nice), and entertainment on Saturday. One of the nicest campgrounds we stayed at, so far. We also had an medical emergency. The campground, and a fellow camper, helped us through a scary time. Left to our own devices, it would not only have ended our vacation but would have caused great distress. However, with the help of very nice people at the campground, within a few hours we were back on vacation! Thank you, all. - Susan Layland

We came for 1 week and ended up staying 2 months. Very quite park. Close to everything. Located in beautiful farmland. The staff has been amazing to us. We will differently come back. We found a great church to attend. Very peaceful here. - tanya mitchell

This was our second trip to this campground. First one was unsatisfactory but gave it another try. Office staff was courteous but not real friendly.
New pool was nice but deepest point was 4 feet only. Center of pool had volleyball net and also had a basket ball net. Made actual swimming impossible.
Site were EXTREMELY narrow. Campers literally on top of each other. Sitting out you were able to look into the windows of the next camper.
We were with friends and we did have an end site, #16. Unsatisfactory site along with the others even though it was on the end. Couldn't sit outside of the trailer under the awning because the ground sloped down and felt like you were sliding out of your chairs. Had to sit at the back end of the trailer almost in the bushes to have a level site to sit, and even that sloped down. Didn't use picnic table because of slope.
Check out time was noon. RIDICULOUIS!. All other campgrounds check out usually after 1 p.m. We left the campground on a Sunday. Church services were at 10 a.m. Unable to attend church because we needed to get packed up and hooked up to meet the NOON CHECKOUT time.
Will NEVER use this campground again. Gave two chances and failed at both.
On the plus side, we had a beautiful view of the farm land. Unfortunately this was the only positive I could comment on.
I gave it a 3 star but my gut says its only a 2 star facility. - SandraAlethea

We made our reservation Sep 13, 2017 online for Thanksgiving 2017. The online reservation program and Pinch Ponds own website made no mention of water being turned off for winter. We thought we would have full hook-ups as stated on the reservation confirmation. Even when we arrived, the staff didn't mention that the water had been turned off. We didn't know there was no water until after the RV was leveled, slides were out and I went to hook up the water. I completely understand the need to turn off the water and winterize certain areas of campgrounds - that is certainly not the issue. The issue is that we were not notified ahead of time. The staff was able to run a hose to our site so that we could fill our tank. We made the best of it and didn't let it ruin our Thanksgiving. As far as the Campground goes, it has a mixture of seasonal and nonseasonal. Some of the seasonal sites are rundown and messy. Our site was sloped to driver's side and we had to put the wheels on blocks to get the auto level to work properly. Trash dumpster was overflowing. Office/store building was nice, but other buildings were run down and in need of repair. Most likely will not return due to inadequate communication from the staff, noise from I-76 and an adjoining shooting range (even Thanksgiving day, range was active). - Joe G1

We stayed here because it was between Hershey and Lancaster. The access was easy and the site was level. As mentioned before the next door shooting range was annoying but we would stay there again. - HaveDieselWillTravel

This is a nice family campground. The layout can be confusing due to the number of roads and the fact that there are 3-4 camping areas. There are many long-term campers and many campsites under construction. The upper pull-thru sites are very nice and reasonably level. The 'woods' sites are a bit tricky to access. The restroom near the office could use some updating. The showers are separate free-standing units separated by curtains only. The new restroom and shower area nearest the road is very nice but the showers themselves are not very spacious. The office/store is well-stocked. There are a lot of activities available for every age group. The roads could use some attention due to washed-out areas. There is plenty of shade for most campsites. It is relatively close to all the area attractions. It is close to the Pennsylvania Pike but there is little highway noise. Would return if we were in the area again. - grandma0942

Very small spots in F section. We we so close to camper next to us that we could smell their sewer. I should have taken it as a warning when the ranger ask me how many blocks we had with us when we got there. No level spots and no way we had enough blocking. Weeds even in flower beds taller than us. And shooting nearby all day all weekend. Picnic table at site was black from weather. We will not use this campground again. - Rshoster67

We stayed 2 nights for the Hershey RV show. Easy to get to from the interstate. It was a last minute decision so the park was very full. The extremely nice staff gentleman that met us at the gate and took us on a golf cart to all the site options that were still available to us was very helpful and kind. We picked a site that was easy to get in and out of. To be able to hook up to sewer we had to place our 5er so close to the side of the road that we were not able to extend our awning. The park needs lots of updating and maintenance. I did not go into the bathrooms or showers but my husband said I would not use them. Two of the showers were broke and in need of some serious cleaning. Our first night there we heard constant gun range shooting until past 8pm. There are quite a few of permanent sites and a few looked pretty "interesting" to say the least. The sites that had more privacy did not have sewer hook up but did have electric and water. Getting our RV in some of those sites with all the overhanging trees and tight turns would of been not worth the hassle for only 2 nights. I was grateful that we found a campsite on such short notice for the RV show but would not return there to camp again. - debwright

We just stayed here for the weekend and had a great experience. From the start the staff was very helpful. The check-in was a bit different then usual as they drove us around the park so we could pick our site. The gentlemen showed us about 10 sites and we finally settled on a site that we thought was great for our needs. The site was large and we had a lot of privacy. The bathrooms and showers were very clean which is always a big thing for us. There was a lot to do during our stay. We will definitely put this campground on our good list!!! - Rob and Tina
