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. We camped at Flory's Cottages & Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure to visit the "Amish Experience" if you are interested in the Amish Culture. See the film, the Amish house and school, and take the tour shuttle. All 3 are about $42 combined and they threw in a free buggy ride. This should be first on your agenda to get a good understanding of the Amish culture before you tour the area.

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. We camped at Flory's Cottages & Camping in a Motorhome.

The campground is in the heart of Amish country. However, was charged $4 extra per day to run my AC. For what you get, the base price of $44 seems a little high as there are no campfires permitted and are really no frills. Sites are tight. If I put my awning out, I would have hit the next rig. There are no pull thru sites. All sites are back in. This is our 3rd time camping in Amish country and we will probably look elsewhere next time. Bathrooms are clean, however. We camped at Flory's Cottages & Camping in a Motorhome.

Good staff at check in, level lot, good utilities, close to activities in Lancaster Co. Good grass, but no fire rings, pool, etc. Limited activities for children. Good for adults to relax and enjoy the countryside. We would stay again if in the area. We camped at Flory's Cottages & Camping in a Motorhome.

This is an expensive RV park and it has the audacity to charge extra for cable TV. In addition its advertised Wi-Fi does not work properly. In over 2 months of travel this summer our laptop only had a problem hooking up to the Wi-Fi service in this park. When we asked the owner about it his reply was that he didn't understand why our laptop wouldn't connect with his WiFi but that he has found that some people are successful using his WiFi and others are not. He had no interest at all in looking into the apparent problem with his WiFi system. the bathrooms and laundry are clean but the showers are very small. The best part about this park is that it is located in a lovely spot right next to the fields of an Amish farm. We camped at Flory's Cottages & Camping in a Motorhome.

The driveway into this facility has a curb on both sides which makes it a little challenging with the rig. The staff is friendly. The laundry facility is clean. It is located in the heart of Amish country and very convenient to tour the area. We had a back-in site, however, when we arrived no one was in the spot behind us so we were able to pull through. There were only two rigs in this open area and it would have been nicer to have a little distance between us and the rig next to us. It was nice and quiet. Wi-Fi was slow and disconnected often. We camped at Flory's Cottages & Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

This is our favorite campground in the Lancaster area. The sites are level, well spaced, clean and very well maintained. The only up-charge when we were here was for cable TV, $4.00. You are in the center of Amishland within easy striking distance of the outlets and farm country. The campground itself is shaded and peaceful backing up against a large farm. A really great pick in this part of the country. We camped at Flory's Cottages & Camping in a Motorhome.

We like this campground because of its location. It is small, but the sites are nice sized. It is owner run, and they do their best to please. Not a lot going on, but if you are busy during the day, it's perfect. Nicely priced. Flat gravel sites. Surrounded on 3 sides by Amish farms. Yes, they are farms, and they have animals and dairy air! The bathrooms are spotless. There is an extra charge for cable and air conditioning. Check out time isn't until 2 pm so go and enjoy a nice breakfast. This is our favorite campground in the area. We camped at Flory's Cottages & Camping in a Travel Trailer.

Older little park, within 15 minutes of all the major area attractions. Mainly back in spaces. Friendly, helpful staff. Cable TV $4 per night extra. Used our Verizon wireless card, which worked perfectly. AT&T cell phone worked fine. Park has Wi-Fi. The park is surrounded on three sides by working Amish farms. If you don’t like mooing cows and crowing roosters, you better camp in the city. We camped at Flory's Cottages & Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice, small campground with an old time feel to it. Some sites border an Amish farm, some of these sites are a little narrow, one is too narrow for slide outs. Base rate is for 3 way hookups, an additional $4 per day for air conditioning, another $4 per day for cable. Still a good value in this area. Sites are level, friendly, helpful staff, most sites were not seasonals. Amish farm store within 100 yards. Scooter and motorcycle rental less than one mile away. Some barking dogs from the farm, not from campers. We especially appreciate the no campfire rule, but know others may not share this preference, so be aware of this. Propane stoves and grills are allowed outdoors. Many sites have large shade trees, and others confirmed for us that satellite TV is hit or miss with tree cover. Also has full hookups in the winter. Staff informed us that winter availability depends on depth of any snow. All in all an unpretentious but nice, little campground. Staff told us sites are easy to book in the summer (we called two days before), but the place gets busy in the fall season. We plan to return when the leaves turn. We camped at Flory's Cottages & Camping in a Motorhome.

The plus is location--right in the midst of Amish country by a working farm. The staff was quite friendly and met us outside when we drove into the park. I didn't use their Internet service. It is for 12 hours and then we had to pay. Each day, you had to go back and get a new password. Strange. We were in what I think was the only pull-through site, and even it was a challenge. There was a basketball goal sitting out too far in the road and a large "wagon" parked on the other side, so getting around to the site was not easy with a 45 ft rig. Then they send you out a very narrow road with a very tight turn. After we started out, we were told most just go out the entrance. If you come into this park with a larger rig, you should consider doing that. It rained while we were there, and we had to literally build a bridge with boards from our steps across the grass. It seems that the sites which are not under trees and at the bottom of the "hill" are prone to having a LOT of water around them during rains. It's basically a place to park your motorhome while you tour from what I could see. It's very convenient, but I doubt I'd choose to stay at this park again because of their very tight roads and driving a large rig. We camped at Flory's Cottages & Camping in a Motorhome.

Nice park in the middle of Amish country. Easy access to the area away from the high activity of Lancaster. Some campground roads are narrow, and vehicles can encroach on the roadways. Few campsites have open sky for satellite systems. We camped at Flory's Cottages & Camping in a Motorhome.

We arrived late at night, and the staff overseeing the campground came out to greet us, even at 10:20pm. Tough site to back into as the sites were close, but the site was level. WiFi wouldn't connect, and wasn't able to get many of the cable channels advertised. Amish couple came through campsite on Saturday, selling their baked goods, great plus for the campground. Good place to be in an RV when you just need to have a clean place to sleep, eat, etc. Great roads for walking, very peaceful. Woke up to sounds of farm animals, didn't mind a bit.

Very nice campground but our site was out in the open area instead of in the treed area so we had no shade. We were given that site because we wanted to use our satellite, however, we could not get a connection. We asked about cable TV and were told we would have to use one of their portable boxes and connect it to our TV. Because of the way our TV is set, we could not make the connection. Hubbie was a little put out that he couldn't watch baseball in the evening. Wi-Fi is $3.00 for 12 consecutive hours and the connection was a bit slow. We still enjoyed our visit to the Amish area and loved the view of the Amish farm from the campground. We would probably stay here again if we ever return. The sites were mostly level, office staff was very friendly and it was an easy in and out. Great location. We camped at Flory's Cottages & Camping in a Motorhome.

Great campground location to visit the Amish area of Lancaster county. The CG is quietly located in a farming area yet convenient to the major thoroughfare and shopping areas. Outlet malls are a 10 minute drive in one direction, and Amish markets are 10 minutes in the other direction. The campground staff were very friendly and helpful. Shady and open sites are both available. We had an open site for our DirecTV. AT&T and Verizon both had strong signals. We took long walks just around the corner and down country lanes with farms and corn fields a plenty. An Amish family sells fresh produce and baked goods next door to the campground. We enjoyed our visit. We camped at Flory's Cottages & Camping in a Motorhome.
