Lancaster County PA big rig friendly

Looking for campground recommendations in the Lancaster County area of Pennsylvania that are big rig friendly (42-45 foot). We are looking at visiting the Amish area there this coming September. Thank you in advance!

Not going to give it a 5-star endorsement, but Circle M (Thousand Trails) is big rig friendly from what i see, they have decent recreational facilities, and they're centrally located in Lancaster County.

We have stayed at Mill Bridge Village camp resort, site #7 - 3 years in a row.

Site 1-6 always have very long MH's in them.

There is a winding creak / river, it is quiet.

Very close to everything the Amish country has to offer, and a young man comes in with a horse drawn carriage selling pillows and such.

We love it and would recommend it to anyone.

Beacon Hill in Intercourse, PA. Adults only campground. Full hookups, and a short walk to the shopping district. Horse & buggies pass by daily. Homemade baked goods sold by the locals who come to camp. VERY clean facilities and washer/dryers.

I agree on Beacon Hill. Close to where you want to be.

Country Acres has changed to a KOA and raised prices. Nice view, but that is all you get for top dollar. There is nothing at this park, except toilets and showers.

While I do not have a "big rig", I sure do see plenty at Circle M when we camp there. It would be interesting to see why you recommend against it.

My own feelings about Circle M are mostly based on sites that aren't anywhere near level, and other signs of accumulated lack of maintenance. It's not in bad shape, but appears not to have been very well maintained for some time, and that lack has caught up with it. People are nice, they have nice activities, and some nice recreational features. As with some former Outdoor World parks I've seen that are now Thousand Trails, they seem to be playing "catch up".

Regards,

Roger

Thank you all for some great suggestions! Unfortunately, not one of them had openings for when we needed them! Ended up finding one called Shadey Grove Campground in Denver PA... appreciate the feedback received from our request...

We spent a week at Country Acres Family Campground (20 Leven Rd, Gordonville, PA / bird-in-hand.com) last fall and enjoyed both the RV parks as well as the Amish community in the area. Their park is big rig friendly. Our site, which they called "the landing strip" was long enough for our 43 ft coach and tow car and probably another class A as well. There were several other big rig sites also.
