I reviewed this campground a few years ago, but thought I should review it again due to the changes I have noticed. Over the years, most of the seasonal campers have turned their sites into trashy looking winter wonderland light displays and have added all sorts of figurines and other tacky yard ornaments, signs and things that spin when the wind blows. There are solar walkway lights, not on walkways, but everywhere. They come on and stay on every night, whether somebody is there or not. It is very annoying and unnatural. String lights are hanging from trees on many sites to seemingly mark the seasonal campers' territory. It's just a shame that such a nice campground could be ruined by this junk. Some needed improvements have been made since my first review, but nothing has been added and the advertised game room is nonexistent. I am saddened by the decline of the attractiveness and sense of being in the woods at Spring Gulch RV Resort due mainly to the seasonal sites. If they clean up these sites, I will be back and write another review. We camped at Spring Gulch Resort Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Spring Gulch Resort Campground in a Cabin.

Staff was great. Campground was much too expensive. For the excess cost you would expect free wifi. 3rd party carrier $$$. No game room for the kids (which is listed on the website). Had to call an outside vendor for golf cart rental ... Over $250 for 5 days. Nice campground but definitely would not pay full price as it was really nothing special.

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. We camped at Spring Gulch Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

We love this campground, it is one of the ones we go to yearly at least once. We always stay in the same site very nice section and easy to group everyone together if we go as a group. Very clean campground. We will probably stay up top one of the times we go in the future. Already booked for next year. We camped at Spring Gulch Resort Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Spring Gulch Resort Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed for a week in April, 2016. The campground is pleasant looking, large sites, mature trees, a rustic feel. Contrary to their website, the swimming pools, hot tub and laundry were all closed during our entire week-long visit. They should have at least offered a discount, but I asked, and they said it's just the way it is. Call ahead to find out what amenities are available during your stay. Don't trust the website. Have fun! We camped at Spring Gulch Resort Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is one of my favorites. Big sites, large campground, very relaxed. There are more seasonal sites each year, which is not too good for us weekend warriors, but there are still available sites. The parks are great for the kids and there are large fields for them to play. I would certainly recommend this campground. We camped at Spring Gulch Resort Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Great really large sites, good hook-ups. No TV and WiFi extra charge. Great staff. Only issue is you have to go up a steep mountain to the sites. We camped at Spring Gulch Resort Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I think we found a new favorite in Lancaster County PA. Every fall, our family does a group trip to Lancaster. I have drove in and checked out the facility before hand, and found it to be wonderful. Deciding to go there, we all packed up our Motorhomes. Upon arriving, we found that the sites we we were having all together would be broke up, due to a camper having a breakdown on his truck. No big deal, we were close enough. The staff was wonderful. The store was well stocked with all the basics (including ice cream!) The sites were spacious, with full hook up and cable. Wifi was $4.00 a day, which we found to be not needed. Verizon coverage was excellent. We camped in the 400 section, which had a nice large field, so the dogs could run. The was also a house right by our sites, which was a bit different. The campground is huge, and we found many seasonal campers, but all were so friendly. This campground has a ton to offer. The sites are very spacious, and we cannot wait to come back and camp in the 1500 zone. Love the shaded sites up the hill. Also, we rented a golf cart from Renningers, which came in handy to explore the campground, and make trash runs and trips to the store. Also came in handy to buy firewood. Gated campground, which is awesome. Everyone in our group enjoyed the stay, and we have no doubt that we will make Spring Gulch an annual destination. We did not use the restrooms, but found them to be very clean. (Showers by dance barn were a bit odd, as they were shared by both men and women, but were privately divided.) Cable TV Service was excellent. To sum it up, we found this Resort to live to its expectation, and will certainly be telling our friends about it. We camped at Spring Gulch Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure to rent a golf cart from Renningers while staying here. You will need it to see the whole campground. Be sure to tour the local attractions. Visit, and learn the PA Dutch country and the amish culture. Its so nice to sit in the 400 section and watch the horse and buggys go by at night!

Clean bathrooms! We were surprised to have a site with no sewer in the lower part of the campground. This was our first trip with our camper so we didn't know much different. We had to extend two nights because our camper needed repairs and they charged us $52.00 per night for those nights. That irritates me since we didn't even have full hookups.

The area is very beautiful and idyllic. Be prepared for horse dung all under your camper and truck since the Amish buggies get it all over the roads. The staff here is friendly. There is a fun little park for the kids. We camped at Spring Gulch Resort Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a park divided into two sections, the upper and lower areas. The lower sections is a old park setting with rigs pulled in side by side. The upper section appears to be newer. We stayed in the up the hill as they called it. It was a steep hill but wide and paved. The sites were bigger than average in many commercial parks. Hookups were nicely placed. The site was gravel, fairly level. There are trees and bushes between many of the sites. There are also a lot of seasonal sites. I was told the sites up on the hill cost between $68 and $72. We paid $35 with our Thousand Trails membership that allows us a 50% discount at Encore parks for a limited number of days The lower section cost a little less, not sure of the price. This is a very nice park if you are up on the hill. Not sure I would stay here without a discount. We camped at Spring Gulch Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is priced $10 to $20 above comparable parks in the area and lacks some very basic amenities. We had to pay $6.00 per day for WiFi service in addition to the premium cost we had already paid for the site. Out of the 4 days we stayed, the wireless signal was so weak that it failed to work at all during one day and was always excessively slow when it did work. We travel nationwide almost every year and find that most RV parks now provide free WiFi, even those charging half this site rate. Bathrooms were inadequate with regards to neatness and design. The shower heads were nothing more than a "mister" and only had a door stop available for hanging a towel and clothing. We loved to visit the Amish area, but would not utilize this park again when we return in the future. The RV sites were good and spacious, but this RV park should get their total package together if they insist on charging such a "premium" rate. We camped at Spring Gulch Resort Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is nice and clean with pretty large, private sites. We spent Labor Day weekend here and it was filled to capacity, but we still felt fairly secluded in our site. We drove around and checked out the whole campground and found that most of the sites are very nice. There are two pools -- one for each side of the campground, which makes it nice to not have to walk too far to the pool. The management is very friendly, except for one girl behind the office counter -- she is impatient and rude, but we got over that. Wi-Fi is TengoInternet pay as you go, so we used our wireless hotspot after asking others how the service was. Everybody said it is pretty lousy. The electric at the pedestal stayed at a consistent 115-124 volts, the water pressure is good and the sewer hookups are convenient and easy to connect. Cell reception is spotty for both Verizon Wireless and AT&T, but we were able to make calls and connect to the Internet without too much trouble. We will definitely return. In fact, we are considering taking an annual site which is something we never considered before. We camped at Spring Gulch Resort Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here several years ago and loved this campground. We were excited to visit a second time but quickly realized it was going to be a different experience the second time around. The nightly rates are expensive and there are no additional amenities for the extra money. We have 5 and 6 year-olds and they love the playground. This time around the playground was overgrown with weeds and littered with garbage. I did see an employee with a weed eater but he never touched the playground. The pool is a nice size but had a strange murky color to it. The one bathroom we did use near the office had the same pink puddle over much of the counter the entire time we were there. We didn't use the showers thankfully but given the state of the bathroom I thought I would check them out. EEK! They were gross, dark, dirty and complete with a used sanitary item lying on the floor. For the money there are 1000 campgrounds I would pay to visit before we would ever return here. We stayed in the lower section on site 401. It was a nice level site. We camped at Spring Gulch Resort Campground in a Travel Trailer.
