Old Mill Stream Camping Manor, Lancaster, Pennsylvania

Campground Review from Sharon

About.com Rating 4 Star Rating

I found out about this campground through a Google map search for campgrounds in or near Lancaster, PA. I RV camped there in August 2007.

Describe your camping trip:

The campground feels like you are worlds away from the hustle and bustle of Lancaster, PA. The sites were a tight squeeze for our 36 footer, but once we were parked there was plenty of side space because the units are parked end to end.
Pros: Huge shade trees protected us from the heat of the summer sun and kept the site at least five degrees cooler than the open areas. Staff was very helpful and friendly.

Cons: The campsites have a weird configuration. You are actually parked end to end, but you must either back in or out of the sites. Very few pull through sites. Zero satellite reception even with a portable dish due to the heavy tree canopy. Very difficult merging into the traffic on Route 30 from the campground exit. Large stands of mature trees can be unnerving during the thunderstorms of the hot summer.
Nearby attractions: Huge waterpark directly next to the campground, discount outlet shopping everywhere, near Sight and Sound Theatre, lots of eateries, Cracker Barrel, Good and Plenty, loads of farm stands with wonderful fresh vegetables in season, Amish farmlands abound.

Further comments:

I rated this campground a four, because of the end to end parking that was difficult for our big rig. There were other regular back in and a few pull through sites. A stream ran along the border of the campground, and the shore glowed with the many campfires each evening. I would definitely come back, but would ask for sites that were not end to end.
