Our site was roomy and level, easy enough to back into. We were parked near the roller coaster at Dutch wonderland, but they stop early so there was no problem with noise. We were able to walk our dog by the little stream in the back or on a big field in the front The scenery was very pretty. The laundry room was clean and efficient. It is near lots of stores and an outlet mall. Great location to downtown Lancaster. Except for the price, we would stay here again. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Motorhome.

We have stayed in this park many times over the last 10 years and it is still one of our favorites. The location is great for visiting Lancaster and the surrounding areas. The faculties are clean and the staff friendly. The WiFi worked well, but the TV had a little interference.

The entrance to the park has changed. You now enter thru Dutch Wonderland. The access road is OK, with several sweeping turn, but you can negotiate it with your toad connected. Stay in the right lane to enter the campground. I am sure this is for safety reasons as getting out onto Route 30 can be challenging due to the high amount of traffic.

I didn't rate the park as high as I have previously for the following reasons: Rates have continued to climb, while some services have eroded, such as: now having to take your garbage to a dumpster rather than curbside pickup. This requires all campers to negotiate thru the park with kids on the streets-very unsafe. Also, getting into the park when east bound on Route 30 is challenging due to the short left turn green arrow. Getting out of the park you have to got thru the parking lot and stop at a crosswalk with many people trying to cross to enter the theme park. When you finally get to the stop light it's posted "No Turn on Red," which doesn't make sense as the lanes are wide open when traffic is entering the park on left arrow off of Route 30. Overall, the traffic pattern doesn't seem well thought out. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is just off Rt 30. Every store/ restaurant you could ever want is off route 30. We don't go out on RT 3o....we met other campers that were excited to see and try the restaurants/shopping options.

An amish man/wife some through on Sat. mornings with fresh baked goods. Delicious treat.

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. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very well kept campground. The staff was super friendly and helpful. Our site was level, right across from a lazy stream and a pasture full of cows. All the roads were paved and the few permanent sites we saw were well kept.

We had no problem entering/exiting through the shared road with Dutch Wonderland. We will definitely stay again when in the area. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Most of the sites are unlevel. There are level sites. But then there are also ultra-unlevel sites here. The percentage of unlevel sites is too high compared to all the other parks I have reviewed. Our rear wheels were lifted off the ground by our auto-levelers. Not good for diesel pusher big rigs. Location is great for visiting Lancaster. The WiFi worked well. Shares an entrance with Dutch Wonderland. Checkout is 11am. Check-in is 3pm. Thus we booked Sunday night too, even though we checked out by Sunday afternoon. They say you can request late checkout on paper but not guaranteed. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Motorhome.

Really nice park, well maintained and convenient for the many attractions in area. Sites are level, some shaded, Wi-Fi worked well, good signal on our Verizon cell phone. Bathrooms and showers were clean. The entrance (which is thru the Dutch Wonderland amusement park) was being reworked when we were there and had two very tight turns for larger vehicles. Had we known how tight, we would have disconnected before we wound our way thru the (otherwise) empty amusement park parking lot. We will stay there again when we are in the area. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Truck Camper.

It's 22 miles away BUT the Shady Maple Smorgasbord is not to be missed! Their buffet offers 200 feet of the finest in PA Dutch cooking interwoven with Italian, Southern and even a few sushi dishes to please the pickiest pallet. They even have a sarsaparilla bar. Come hungry. http://www.shady-maple.com/

We have been camping here for years. I understand it's under new management. We arrived at 8pm in February 2016. We left at 9am the following day. We only used electric. They charged us $50.00! I think this is exorbitant for the little services we used. I can understand if we were in-season. Prices during the middle of winter should be lower. We were not camping. We only needed a place to sleep for the night before moving on. The campground was empty and basically closed for the winter as far as recreation is concerned. Traveling in an RV used to be reasonable. Campground owners are becoming more and more greedy for the services they provide. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park that sits back off the road. The site was on the hillside making it difficult getting into but the utilities worked well. It's convenient location is close to the outlet stores and attractions but is quiet and feels safe. I would stay again when in the area. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very well maintained and landscaped campground. Staff was professional, friendly and informative. Camp store was nicely stocked. Our full hookups were in good working order. Our campsite alone with the other sites we noticed had crushed stone put down and looked level. All the roads in the campground that we saw were paved and the campground geography was moderately wooded and somewhat level. Wi-Fi worked well, good signal on our Verizon cell phone. Nice destination and home base type campground to explore the Lancaster area. Bathrooms and showers are spot on clean. Showers have plenty of hooks, space and a large bench to put your stuff on. One thing new for this year is the change of the entrance to the campground, you now have to enter the campground with the Dutch Wonderland Amusement Park visitors and when leaving you are required to weave through the Amusement park parking lot which we thought was poorly marked. We enjoyed this campground and would certainly return or recommend this place to anyone. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We camped here for two nights on a weekend. Oct 24 and 25, we were lucky to get a site, as the park was full. The staff is very friendly. The park is well maintained and if far enough off the main road that it is very quiet. It is also very accessible to the Amish area, Smokestack and Intercourse. We have a 43' motor home we were not able to get level without lifting the front wheels off the ground, which we would not. The sites are small and the WiFi did not work very well at all. It is heavily treed which makes it almost impossible to receive satellite TV.

Like I said we were happy to get a walk-in site at this location. They do not offer any FMCA or Good Sam or AAA discounts. I would call for a reservation just to make sure there is space available. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Motorhome.

Big rig friendly with level sites. Showers were large, hot water, and very convenient. Cable and wifi were good. There was not a dog park but large field beside campground to walk dog. Good for bicycle riding. No activities or swimming pool. It rained for 2 days and drainage was not very good in the campground. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Showers/bathrooms were very clean and cleaned regularly. Showers were a good size and water pressure and temp were good. Grounds were pretty much clean, but weeds and grass needed to be cut. Price is a bit high for what you get and sites are close to each other. There was a boxelder bug infestation in and around our site and that was the big turnoff. I am still finding them on the outside of my camper. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Travel Trailer.
