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.

Tips for other Campers:

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/

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.

Tips for other Campers:

There are two outlet malls, Walmart, Target, Kohls, numerous restaurants, and other shopping all less than ten miles. Lancaster and Intercourse are both a great place to visit to learn about the Amish and Mennonites.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

Convenience to Dutch Wonderland is good and they have discount tickets for $31.99.

This is a fabulous park! We have stayed here with/without our grandson numerous times and we have also held a rally here. It's near the stream. If you are going to Dutch Wonderland , the location can't get any better. You can walk to the park from the campground. There is a playground and game room for kids. There is a new pavilion/group meeting area. The staff is friendly. They staff comes around to pick up trash so no ugly over flowing dumpsters. The bathrooms are the best we have ever seen. Clean! All campgrounds should model their bathrooms after the ones at Old Mill Stream. Clean, new, heat and a/c. If you need things to do outside the campground there are plenty of restaurants, lots of shopping, Hershey Park isn't far. The Amish Village is a nice stop. We camped here this summer and we are looking forward to coming back in the fall. We have sent many campers here, from small travel trailers to the larger Air Streams, everyone has told us they loved this campground. Friends from Alabama have stayed at least twice when coming to this area.

This is a clean campground in a great location if you want to be near lots of activities. If you are looking for a secluded campground this is probably not for you.

We would highly recommend this campground. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The Amish horse and buggy comes through on Saturday mornings with fresh baked goods. Nice treat.

Came in late at night and all my information was posted on the board just as they told me it would be. Site was clean and access was easy. Water hookup was on the opposite side of the trailer but not a huge inconvenience for a two day stay. Staff in the office was friendly. I had a coupon for an extra night if we stayed for two and they accepted it without hesitation. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Price was a little on the high side but I opted for a pull thru with 50 amp. That added $7.00 onto the base price.

We start our camping season here, usually in April. They are next to Dutch Wonderland. It is quiet and peaceful here with a small stream along the back. You can walk to the Tanger Outlets. The camp store is very small but the people are helpful and friendly. Level sites are gravel. On Saturdays an Amish man and wife come through selling baked goods from a pie cart!, We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Tanger outlets walkable, 0.2 mile.

Very warm and inviting welcome. We utilizing this campground while visiting Lancaster, Amish communities and train museum. Campground within 1 mile of gas stations, restaurants, freeway and grocery stores. Verizon phones were able to maintain a 4g signal. DirecTV (free standing satellite) had no issue. Many campers were long term, and these RV's appeared rough, which presented a negative look on the park. Our campsite included picnic table and fire-pit. The Wi-Fi service provided was weak and not reliable. Please note, this campground is located next to a large amusement park, therefore noise is heard throughout the park. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Our only concern was the busy rte 30 traffic which makes it tough to leave or get into the campground We enjoyed this campground and would certainly return or recommend this place to anyone.

We returned to this campground in October and to update my June 2014 review, this campground IS open 12 months a year. Despite their not listing this on their website and their rate chart for some reason ends on November 31, the people who run the campground assured us that they are again open 12 months a year. Last year they did close for the winter to do renovations. Everything is still good here. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Great PA Dutch restaurants all around Lancaster County. Lots of tourist attractions including an amusement park for young children next door to this campground in this immediate area.

There have been big changes at this campground over the past winter into 2014. The "T" sites that have been commented on for so long are now gone. The "T" spaces have been converted into two independent back in sites. There has also been the addition of cabins and a few sites with teepees (though we did not see any teepees set up in the sites that they are shown on the map - they may be set up as needed). With the changes there have been price increases. There is also a later check in time and an earlier check out time and they are no longer open 12 months a year, but will close now at the end of November for the winter. The campground has good hookups, sites shaded by large trees, good cable, good Wi-Fi, and sites that are fairly level. Restroom and shower facilities are spotless. The people who work here are extremely friendly and nice as is management and are very accommodating. The location is central to all attractions in the PA Dutch Country and backs onto a stream and farmland across the stream. To one side of the campground is the Dutch Wonderland Amusement Park, which owns the campground. We stay have stayed here before and will come back again. Without having a concern any longer of being given one of the "T" sites - as they are gone - this campground is even better than before. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Motorhome.

Sites were gravel but level, staff very helpful,I would suggest being on the east side, not near the amusement park.Although the park is off a busy hwy. Noise was not an issue. Baths and showers were very nice & clean.We were in site 210 a pull through, average room & not too close to the person next to you. Sites I liked were 208,210,203,303,402 We were in a 28ft TT. This park is not real large but comfortable. We would definitely stay again when in the area. Close to most things to see. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Travel Trailer.
