We camped here for 4 nights. Wweren'te switched sites to a site on the river after the weekend crowd left. beautiful site with a working Amish farm right across the river. very nice campground right next to Dutch Wonderland amusement park. sites are kinda close together but with ample room. you're not rubbing elbows with your neighbor. they say there's cable but we were not able to hook up on either of the two sites we were on. we used the antenna and was able to receive bout 15 stations with Philly being right down the road. wifi was excellent on both our sites. would definitely recommend it and would stay here again. great proximity to the Amish country. - Banditoman60

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

Staff were great, they go out of their way to help. This was our third stay here - unlike other Thousand Trails parks, we have yet to discover a site that does not require extreme leveling; noticed that almost all RVs around us needed extra leveling. Sites need gravel and maintenance, there were ruts and gullies that make it hard to position the trailer on the site AND reach the hookups. Frankly the only reason we have visited here is that it's close to home and convenient. The "junkyard" of stored RVs is an eyesore, and it's right on the main road so you can't miss it. Picnic tables are not maintained. Park buildings, like bath houses, look run down and even dilapidated. Cable TV is barely adequate for $3.95/day. Could not access WIFI, as it's only in the store and office area. Good activities for families, especially for Halloween. Have not tried the indoor pool, which is nice to have. Location is great, central and convenient to Lancaster PA tourist attractions - if only the park itself were better maintained. If it weren't for our Thousand Trails membership I wouldn't consider staying here. And I certainly would not pay their published daily rates. It's a shame, because this location has great potential. P.S. Entrance from the highway is TERRIBLE because it's located on a blind curve, but it's been like that since the place opened in the 1960's - watch out when you exit the park! - RamjetPA

If it weren't for the fact that this is the closest campground to an aging relative with health issues we would never return. Thousand Trails continues to raise rates but does not add anything to warrant it. Still no free WIFI throughout the park nor cable TV and at the prices they charge that is ridiculous. Rates are now $61/night plus the mandatory $4 "resort fee" so in reality $65/night is the base rate and add on to that if you want the terrible Tengo internet and cable TV each available for additional fees. Weekend rates are even worse @ $64/night + $4 resort fee. Sites all need leveling and could use an overhaul with new gravel etc. It is very sad, this could be a class A park with just some common sense applied to the settings but is typical of Thousand Trails locations. - Bob & Stephanie

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 park is very small, but nice and clean. The sites are hard to get into because they are not angled. We had to move our vehicle several times so that it was not hit by other RVers backing into their sites. The owners are very nice and came by many times to make sure we were happy. The owners dog is not friendly and tried to get at my dogs a few times. A leash would solve the problem. The area around the campground is mainly Amish. It is very peaceful. - browncat

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

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 by far the cleanest and friendliest staffed campground we stayed at this year. The grounds were well kept, the bathrooms were cleaned daily and overall the campers around us were quiet and well behaved. There were no problems with any of the hook ups, very good selection of cable channels and the WiFi actually worked well. The only suggestion that would make this campground any better would be to space out the sites somewhat more that what they are now. We did not use the pool because it was closed. We would definitively stay here again. - dadseven

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

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

As many other have stated, the sites are small as in: we were just able to park our jeep across the front of our rig. Our site was a pull through, very interesting layout, the street is a dead end and you simply pull in off the road to the site. There are additional back in sites across from the pull through sites. Some appear to be seasonal as they have a deck. CG is quiet.
We were visited Saturday afternoon by a young Amish girl pulling a wagon full of fresh baked goods and jams. Bought a ShooFly Pie, a jar of Chow-Chow and a jar of strawberry jam. Very good!! We did not avail ourselves of any of the facilities, but given how nicely everything else is kept, I am confident they are also up to par. The person that checked us in was exceedingly pleasant. We would stay here again. - blues traveler

Nice Base Camp for Pennsylvania Dutch area. Small sites, once trailer on site could not leave truck there, hard to park in lot or on street behind campground. Amish family came around on Friday and Saturday evening to sell baked goods. Cool Experience, tasted good too. Very close to Kitchen Kettle Shops. Outlet shopping 15 minutes away. - doghouse traveler

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

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

Spent 3 days here. Overall good layout of the CG. Site is pull-through and easy to access. Place to park tow vehicle. Staff is friendly. The CG is well maintained. great proximity to Amish country/Lancaster. Nice views of woods. Only negative, which there is nothing that can be done about, is the noise from the PA Turnpike. Most of the time it's just a low droning noise. Occasionally, there is a loud truck. Will definitely stay here again when we return to the area. - FordTruck

We did not have reservations but called same day and got a site. They have two campgrounds about a mile apart and our GPS initially brought us to the wrong one. Very easy pull through sites. Unlike other reviewers we had no problems with the gates, the sewer, or noise from the shooting range. However the neighbors were a bit noisy until midnight. They have cable hookup if you want that. Convenient to the Renaissance Fair - 5 minute drive. The kind maintaince guy let me use his compressor for a low tire and even helped me set it up. - rudyhehn

This is a charming place with great potential. Pros: Staff were super courteous, on top of everything and very hospitable. Nicely stocked and clean camp store. Cons: Wifi is nonexistent except by payment to third party and coverage is only near the store. Turnpike noise is very, very obvious, and sometimes overwhelming, particularly if outside your rv. Permanently seasonal sites are not attractive at all. Most are not kept neat, cleaned or maintained. Many look like a shanty town with unregulated building of scrap materials attached to them. The adjacent gun range noise is more tolerable than the Turnpike, but during our stay on Saturday night at 12:35 am, someone decided to practice on the range with their semi-automatic rifle, shooting about 20-30 rounds. Not cool at all! Overall it met our requirements for a weekend visit with our daughter in college, but was not peaceful nor quiet. Sorry Pinch Pond. - zbittcamper

Price reflects non-thousand trails member price. This is a well kept park manned by a friendly helpful staff. Park appears to have been designed in the 60's at the heyday of the 12 foot travel trailer. I counted 6 pull through sites. Site slope is pretty extreme on most of the sites. Wi-Fi is available for $6 per day. Thought that was pretty pricey, so we did not partake. Campground is very close to the PA Renaissance Faire, and this was the criteria for choosing it. I will give one of the others in the area a try next time. - BounderPounder

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
