This is a very nice CG next to Dutch Wonderland. The interior roads are paved and the sites are gravel with picnic tables. There are no amenities so the high price is due to the location. There is a little road noise mostly from truck traffic and some noise from the Dutch Wonderland. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Motorhome.

Very beautiful view from river front sites. River front row of sites are level. Interior roads are one lane wide only. Beware that you may run into oncoming traffic and someone has to back up. Thus checkout is 11am and checkin is 3pm! Many beautiful trees, beware not to run into them. No place to hookup toad except on interior road blocking all traffic. Basically a very tight old campground. T-Mobile service was good. Did not try their Tengo internet. Had to mail deposit by check, very old school and inconvenient reservations process. They sold wet bundle of wood to us. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Motorhome.

I booked late but managed to get a decent spot. It was a pull in, not a back in. Odd, but functional. Site 303 is in the back of the campground and quite quiet. The big complaint is that all the sewer hookups were non threaded and so many had hoses just stuck in and not sealed. There was a lot of odor from them. A sewer donut works well and should be required. Dog friendly but no poop bag stations or dog park. Good cable with 46 stations. Campground is next to Dutch Wonderland and shares the entrance. There could be a long line to get in during peak season and early in the day. Entrance is directly across the street from the Tanger Outlets. An Amish wagon came through the campground in the evening selling pastries and jellies. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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

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

A little pricey, but the campground is right next to Dutch Wonderland, which is why we were in Lancaster for the weekend, so you cannot beat the convenience of the location. Our site was odd as it was not originally designed with RV's in mind, until last year they had a few tipis that could be rented, and this was where one of them had been. It was level, however, and everything functioned well. The staff was friendly, and even being next to an amusement park, once the park closed for the day things quieted down in the evening. Shower house was modern and very clean. The campground itself is laid out nicely, with sites easy to find, and lots of shade to be had. The tent sites are in the back along the stream, with a beautiful, unobstructed view of the Amish farm field beyond. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed sept 10 thru 15 and had an excellent experience with old mill stream. We have stayed here 5 times already and use it as our base for the rv show in hershey and to spend time in Amish country. It is a touch pricey but the place is always in top shape with exceptional showers and bathrooms. We used the large field just above the campground for ball throwing to our dogs for exercise which is always a plus for them. After arriving and checking in we really didn't see much of the office staff which usually means they are doing a good job and we have never been treated anything but professionally by them in the past. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Motorhome.

Just get out and drive the back roads and stop at any store or market and enjoy the day. I know millers gets the publicity to eat at but we have found so many places we fill are better, especially Dienner's.

This wooded park has many limitations noted by previous reviewers but it is popular with young families wanting to give their children a fun experience at the adjacent amusement park. The other reason to stay here is to visit this Amish area. Wifi is provided by Tangointernet which we find to be cumbersome to use and not secure (no password). Staff is friendly and helpful. The amusement park and campground are served by one exit which can be jammed with guests who are leaving. There is a large flock of geese sharing the grassy area next to the creek with tenters: a mess for them to deal with. They can spill over onto the roadway serving these tent camping sites as well as the sites on that loop, providing messy obstacles for youngsters riding their bikes and trikes. However, the fireflies in that area provide a beautiful light show at dusk. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Motorhome.

Many of the sites are unlevel. When calling to make a reservation for specific site, no one answers the phone, you leave a voicemail, then they call you back hours later in the evening, must mail check over snail mail, no email confirmation, very archaic form of reservation. If you don't care about sites, online reservation is available. However there are many, many unlevel sites for big rigs. Still the most convenient park to Dutch Wonderland. When departing, you will block road while hooking up toad, one lane roads only, just be aware. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Motorhome.

Overpriced for what you get. FHU gravel sites, no features for adults such as trails to walk or bike, they do have kids playground. Thick trees, they are in serious need of trimming, our site had a large tree limb scraping the top of our MH. Campground is affiliated with Dutch Wonderland amusement park. Too thick for satellite, cable is spotty in bad weather. Propane available, as well as air dispenser, but that is useless for MH's that need over 100 PSI because it has a limit of 65 PSI. Traffic on Lincoln Hwy at the driveway is MISERABLE! Average park at best, not worth $55 per night, especially with no discounts offered. We camped at Old Mill Stream Campground in a Motorhome.

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.

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 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.

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.
