39 Parks near Lancaster, Pennsylvania

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

We stayed less than 24 hours. The "cabin" was an old trailer. Electricity wasn't on. We turned on the breaker and the power was flickering then blew. Maintenance came and replaced an air conditioner. The deck was unattached and unsafe. If you leaned forward the whole deck moved with you. Following morning our cabin was infested with ants on the inside and caterpillars on the outside. Our cabin was under a tree filled with cocoons of caterpillars. They were dropping out of the tree onto us and table....everywhere. We waited for three hours for them to come deal with ant issue when We finally left and will never go back. - Camper08724

The is a typical Outdoor World. Not well taken care of. A lot of permanent sites which didn't leave much choices of sites to pick from. Probably would not return to Circle M. - jrhaze

If you're a Thousand Trails member, and have kids, and can put up with the ruts in the roads, you will find lots of stuff to keep you and the kids occupied.
If you're just a traveler looking for a place to park while visiting the area, this one's not for you. The highest price in the area, plus a resort fee, and WiFi is $5.95 per day per device. Cable costs also. Drive very slowly to avoid the ruts (on every road, once you're in the park). - ta96silver

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

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

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

Management is very helpful and friendly. Our site was nice and wide, with fire ring and large picnic table. Showers (metered) appeared to be clean and well maintained. Laundry room was clean with new machines (2 each). Firewood, ice and propane are available as well as some food staples, fishing gear and bait and other sundries. My only complaint is the lack of sewer hookup, but "honey wagon"service is available at a lower cost than most. Rate reflects 10 days at PA rate and 3 days full rate, plus A/C surcharge of $4/day. DO NOT depend on GPS to route you safely, follow directions on the website or you may well end up on some narrow STEEP hills (20% downgrade). We would stay here again. We had to change sites when we decided to stay an additional week. - DB_Engineer

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

We used to enjoy staying at White Oak Campground. On our past trip, we were very displeased. While the staff is very friendly and helpful, we found the other campers there to be very rude. We had a fire going, and the neighbor told me that it was offending him. I'm sorry, but I paid for my site, and I'm going to have a fire. You don't run the campground! With the rally going on, people were walking on our site like crazy. The one plus to the campground is the location and the pool. Sites very tight and unlevel. We will not be returning! PS: Shared water connections! - Chieftain1986

We loved being in Amish country. We arrived after dark and retrieved the map to our site. The problem was that the sites weren't marked very well so it was anyone's guess as to where the "official" site actually was because the site was just grass. It was a chore to get level but with some creative blocking we finally achieved it. There was also some miscommunication because we were in a 30-amp only site.
With all of the issues the first night we thought about asking to move to a different spot. But the next morning we opened our the blind on our bay window (windshield) and the view was so beautiful that we couldn't move to another spot. We had an open grassy area in front of us and then the road where we could see and hear the Amish buggy horses trotting down the road.
We loved our stay and would have stayed longer if we weren't on a schedule. We will definitely be back. - Frisco Wolffman

Nice access to the area. Easy to access the campground. The clip clip of the Amish carriages added a touch of enchantment for me and I enjoyed the pastoral nature of Lancaster County. The campground is very popular, especially on a holiday weekend. We called at the last minute, since our plans seemed to be in motion, and were placed in the "P" section - water, electric and a fire ring. These sites are cheek by jowl. Slide outs almost touch each other and you can hear conversations in other trailers. But, it was a place to park for a few days. Nice staff and nice neighbors. - LFClary

Our site was in a new area and the sewer connection was too high. We had to ask to have it cut down. All hookups worked fine. We had a roomy area without being on top of our neighbors. A nearby shooting range was very loud. The campground is gated with keycard entry. The laundry room was large and clean and reasonably priced. There is NO wifi available at the campsite. Although we did not swim in it, the pool looked very inviting. Looks of trees and shrubs makes things feel very outdoorsy. - Melodycthomas

Although the staff was courteous and helpful, and we appreciated the escort to our site, the campground itself was a disappointment. A dilapidated permanent park model was the first thing we saw on our way in. The sewer hookup at our site appeared to be missing a piece that would have allowed our connection to be screwed in, so we had to hold our hose in place with several large rocks that were "handily" placed next to it. The site was very steep and we were unable to ever get the trailer level. Once we were settled in, we were startled the next morning by the sound of gunfire, which was from a private gun club that sounded very close to us. Adding to the noise was the fact that directly adjacent to our site several pieces of construction equipment were being used to clear a site for more trailers. Also, there was a constant low hum from the interstate highway directly below us, which by itself, would not have been too much of a bother. Had we not intended to spend most of the days with local friends, we would have left after the first night. In addition, although it was advertised as a gated community, the gate was up two of the three days we stayed. Despite the friendliness of the staff, we would not stay there again. Note to Garmin GPS users- our Garmin directed us PAST Exit 266 (Lancaster-Lebanon) as we came from the east on I-76W/PA Turnpike and onto a nearby unmarked access road. This road would have led directly into the campground but for the fact that it is for emergency vehicles only and is chained off. The next exit is seventeen miles (and seventeen miles back) to take exit 266- and to pay the toll twice! - Momcat49

As some have said before the showers are very tight. Sites were good but you do get noise from the Pa Turnpike and the gun range next door. Staff very helpful and see they are adding new sites behind the store, looks to be all pull-through. - DBLR

We called for reservations the day before. When we got there, we had to walk up to the office to get a gate pass number so we could get in. My husband drove around to find a site suitable. The lady at the office gave us a new pass code to get back in when we left. Since we didn't bring a "toad," to go into see "Sampson," we drove to see it in our Motohome. Upon arrival back to the park, our pass code didn't work. After going to three different places near the office, my wife found a gentleman who drove her back to the gate. We used his "number" to get in. It was a nightmare. - 1dinky

Good park, however very limited spots that can support Dish or DirecTV. We asked to have our fire pit "Cleaned out", and within 15 min a staff member appeared and cleaned out the debris. The only reason we rated the park a "9" was because of the TV reception. We also noticed 5 or 6 spots reserved for handicapped use, which we thought was very good. Will stay here again in the future. - md_procouple

Site was back in, FHU, 50amp, shaded, no cable we got TV on antenna. Picnic Table, grill & fire pit. Playground, pool,laundry. No dog run but plenty of places to walk. Seasonal sites were neat. For the Hershey show, they had you inspect sites with a worker in a golf cart. - jcpjane
