if you haven't been to Lancaster County and want the Amish experience I would suggest Red Run close to Ephrata. Right in the middle of the farms, on a stream, well shaded, and a nice pool. The Lititz chocolate factory, restored Landisvillage, Weavers general store, French Creek State Park, the Green Dragon, shop at The Shady Maple, and if you have kids Lapp's farm at milking time.

If you can arrange it lunch at en Amish farm is the best. That used to be readily available but the state and the Do Gooders got involved several years ago. With some discrete questioning you can still arrange a lunch-in that you will remember.

You said " camp sites " not " campground "

Might I suggest a festival? You can get tickets online for most of them. They usually always have room. It's cheap. You don't have to think about activities, or entertainment. There are so many to choose from within a few hours drive from you. Some have electric hookups, most have a water source, very few have dumping station or dumping hook ups.

I suggest this because, judging from your other post, I gathered that you were having a tough time getting reservations.

Gettysburg! We've been there numerous times & will go back. The area is full of history & things to do for all age groups. The RV parks are many, we liked the KOA best, have also stayed at Artillery Ridge (closest to the Battlefield) 3 different times & enjoyed our stay. The town square is a great place to walk around, shop, have a cocktail & dinner. Gettysburg is just a fun place.

We discovered the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area a few years ago, marked by Matamoras on the North and Stroudsburg on the South, and it is a beautiful, wooded area.

There is a state forest campground pets .....and a national park campground there...neither of which offer hookups, but there are also some private campgrounds on the periphery.

We stayed at Dingmans, it was fall and absolutely gorgeous.

Airstream park

There is a nice little Airstream park at Limestone, PA. It is just south of Clarion. Just a little ways off of the interstate. Tucked into a nice little valley. Friendly folk there too.

Penn wood is great, we attended the 4th of July rally and had a great time, very friendly place.

Lots to do in Erie, we go at least once a year and stay At the KOA. Meadville KOA is nice but not as much to do near there for us.

We have stAyed several times at KOA Battlefield campground at Gettysburg and it is a wonderful site with all the amenities and is very well managed and close to the town and all the battlegrounds. You should definitely go to the visitor center and enjoy the exhibits and film. The town has several nice restaurants too!

Camping in pa

If you were looking for somewhere to go to a big lake to fish consider either kinzua or Raystown Lakes.

Just looking for a cool place and alot of scenery, the Grand Canyon of pennsylvania. Cheap but decent campground within walking distance. It's about 8??' some foot drop to the bottom. So about 9 stories down. Nice trout fishing in that area.

Any questions let me know, I may live in fL now, but camped all pa when I lived up there.

Lancaster area, Lake-In Woods campground. We stay there every year for a week in July. Not to crowded, the pool complex is the best we have ever seen and used. Very clean, upscale place, mini golf, restaurant on premises, the store is awesome. Golf cart rental is available. Also close to everything, located in Bowmansville.

Ohiopyle State Park in southwestern PA.

Frank Lloyd Wrights' Fallingwater is near by. There is also whitewater rafting if you are in to that type of thing.
