First, the good about the place. It is clean. It is quite (if your not by the road) The view is very nice (if you have the front sites) Easy in and out with 42' FW. That's it! The water pressure was so bad, We had to fill our tank and use the pump. With in 2 minutes of putting out our awing's, a bang at the door (not knock) an a woman telling us that if we leave our site for any reason we must roll up our awing's because it gets windy. (after 30 years...we know when to roll up our awing's) Fact is our awing reached too the site next to us, very narrow sites in area we were in. (not all sites are like that...just a few and we were one of them) Our site includes a fire ring, it wasn't there, but if we wanted one we need to ask for it. Even though we paid for it. They started doing construction on the site next to us, diesel exhaust filled are FW, we asked them if they could stop, we were told that they thought we where leaving (this was 2 hours after check out time) Bottom line...from the time they open the gate for you, You are a GUEST....They let you know that. It's their rules..they let you know that. We have never been to a KOA this bad. And don't know why KOA even allows this. WE are very sure that we are not the only people that when thou this (owners more so) just read other reviews. The only way we will go back is....it must say under new management. - RW40KB

This is a small, clean campground with a spectacular view of Amish farm country. The sites near the roadway are spacious, and you can watch lots of horse-and-buggy traffic; that also means a good deal of vehicle noise. The other sites are crowded. If you are looking for things to do on site, this is not the campground for you. There is no pool, game room, camp store, or activities, like many other KOA Campgrounds. The owners are rather unfriendly and VERY STERN about the rules. They charge $6 per person and $5 per car for visitors. No dog runs are permitted, and dogs cannot be tied to trees. They asked us to move our outdoor rug off the grass at night. The location was somewhat inconvenient to local attractions, all of which were at least a 20-minute drive away. Because there are so many other campgrounds in the area, we'll stay somewhere else next time. We are frequent visitors to the area. - Sophie F

This campground is the place you need to go if you want to experience the Amish and Mennonite experience. No matter which way you turn out of the campground, within minutes you will come across Amish buggies or Amish children walking home from school or see the men behind their beautiful working horses tending their beautiful rich soil. Close by you will find stands selling fresh veggies and fruit or freshly cut flowers. The views out across the valleys are very nice and just begging for you to take a photo or two.
I have stayed at numerous KOA campgrounds from Mount Rushmore to South Florida and this is one of the very best. The lots are spacious and offer some shade. Sites are gravel and feature a fire ring, picnic table and patio. The owners work hard to keep this campground prestine. It shows in every direction you look. Our interactions with the owners were perfect. - Monkei

This is our 3rd time camping @ Red Run and we really like it here. The creek sites are great, our kids love playing in it. You can fish in the creek or the pond. They have a playground and a basketball net for the kids. The field is a nice place to have a catch with a football or frisbee that the campground provides. We will camp here again. - bcoakley

This park is very nicely situated in the Amish country around Lancaster, PA. We stopped here to break up a long trip home from the Finger Lakes area of New York. It is quiet, shady and very pleasant. It was a very good choice after a long drive and the pool provided relief from the stifling heat and humidity. The sight of Amish buggies driving through the campground was a treat for my 12-year old nephew. - Hmuse

We stayed with a family group. Family said the bathrooms should be rebuilt. Water was shut off Sunday afternoon. I think they were repairing the system. Very nice clean pool. New owners, just arrived one month ago. Nice people. I would give them a chance to work on the improvements before I passed judgement. Wifi spotty at camp edge, but otherwise good. Playground. Activities. Remote and scenic. Farms and farm odors nearby. Creek is too shallow for boating or fishing, but the have a nice large pond for kayaks or fishing. - Denial Guru

After a horrible experience at another local campground, we called around to find another campground. The staff on the phone was so sympathetic and wonderful trying to help us. After a one night stay in a hotel we checked into here. The staff are wonderful and helpful. The cabin beautiful. The campground is beautiful and serene. Wi-Fi and cable are included, unlike the other campground. We would definitely recommend this place to others as well as stay here ourselves again. - Camper08724

We stay at Spring Gulch with friends every year for a long weekend. The sites are classified as "Elite" although I can't imagine why, they are just gravel covered sites with an unremarkable picnic table. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The heavy tree cover helps keep the area cool, but prevents satellite TV reception. We always bring the golf cart, because it's long, long distance to the office. The campground is convenient to all the local tourist attractions. - WMSmith

The park was very nice and clean. It has two swimming pools, tennis court playground and beautiful spots in the woods. I would recommend this camp ground anytime. - seibertman

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

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

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

Our site was out in the open closeby an Amish farm. Just a gorgeous open view of the cornfield and blue silos in the distance. Very beautiful and serene for us southern CA people. We used the laundry facility which was clean enough, but a bit pricey compared to one we used at a KOA in MO. The owner and staff were very helpful. It's reasuring to see them cruising the campground in the gold cart on the lookout for anything that may need their attention. Needless to say, this campground is clean, well tended to and a plus, no unruly people making noise. Our site was pretty level as far as gravel sites go, and it was very clean. We did not have a toad. - CAcamping

We stayed for 4 nights. The sites are gravel and a little uneven but we did not have any significant problems. It rained during our stay so sites were a little muddy and had some leftover pools of water. Hosts were friendly and helpful. Limited cable but a good signal. WiFi was available and worked. We enjoyed our stay especially since it wasn't crowded. There seems to be little to do for children, though they are building a pool area. We would absolutely stay there again. - Happy Camper 168

Small campground in the middle of Amish country in Lancaster County PA. Our site was a pull through. The site was level but the ground between the sites had quite a bit of slope to it. We had FHU's and the WiFi worked OK most of the time. There is very little to do in the park, but the area if full of shopping & attractions. Lancaster PA is a few miles west with a lot of historical sites. The campground is next to a large Amish farm and you can see them plowing the fields with horse draw equipment most days. - Co-Mike

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

A work in progress. We had tried a couple of other campgrounds and they were full. These folks were very friendly and we stayed with them three nights. Once you get to the sites for transients, it is quiet and peaceful. Getting there was hair raising, zigging and zagging up dirt/gravel switchback roads. We were three levels up. Many permanent sites on the lower levels. The utilities were on the wrong side on our site although others were OK. Power supply was only 105 volts and kept kicking the breaker. Only 30 amp service. Luckily we didn't need the air at this time of year. Site was level and there was a nice/steep beginning walking trail. The restrooms need major work, probably replaced. Hubby checked them and said privacy was non existent with shower curtain dividers. At $40 it sufficed but probably won't return. - elaine170

Very friendly and accommodating. Large private sites. Playground is at the lower end and seemed to be nice. We did not come to Lancaster to use the campground facilities we came here to explore the Amish food, shops and the Sight and Sound Theater. We will stay here again. - Oldman5145

Very small campground appears to be new owners trying to make some changes. Huge sites, definitely not your average site layout. They go everywhere. Switchback road through the campground. Absolutely nothing to do here except what is at your site or in the area. May be better in a few years. - Hammerx4

Trashy. Very rude staff, clientele very strange. No freedom to be at your site without management or others interrupting. Smells like sewer, would not recommend at all. Other campgrounds within a mile radius much nicer and much friendlier staff. - JJLJ

We have stayed at this campground several times before. It is a very well run park. Seasonals and staff are all friendly and all rules are followed. No speeding golf carts and no excessive noise!! This is the first time the weather allowed us to use the pool--it was nice and warm and quite clean. A bit disappointed, though, that on a holiday weekend the water slides were not open. The golf cart parade was a lot of fun as was the selfie scavenger hunt for teens and adults. There are quite a few activities as well as a church service to choose from. The local bakery comes and sells some yummy desserts as wellThere is a nice hunting trail opposite the lake that leads up to "Devil's Den". I recommend checking it out. The sites are clean and nicely spaced out so you are not right next to your neighbor. Most of the sites have quite a bit of shade as well. If you do rent a site and you are in the "D" section, I would suggest renting a golf cart as well as the hill heading down to the pool and store is quite steep. We already have plans to return next year. - autismmom

Our first trip to Oak Creek, and staying on the N side of the Lancaster area. Upon arrival we were meet by a greeter at the entrance of the park and was qucikly escorted to our site and aided in backing in to the site. Site was located on the creek and was very nice with a great view. Enjoyed the proximity to the playground and the fishing pond to keep an eye on our children. Paved site was a bit off level but manageable. Tree covered spot blocked our satellite however the cable had many channels. Verizon cell service was marginal at best. Campground store had a lot of good stuff and also had a great selection of campground t-shirts including larger sizes. I would recommend Oak Creek. - SJEAGLES609
