Pottsville, PA area Campgrounds

We are going up to visit freinds in Orwigsburg, PA, just outside of Pottsville. While there we would like to visit many of the area points of interest. Places like Hershey, Pottsville, Lancaster, Gettsburg and possibly Philadelphia.
I have found a campground in Auburn (Christmas tree) and another in Shartlesville (Appalachian). Looks like both would work although Christmas tree doesn't have sewer.
Any other recommendations or personal knowledge about the area would be appreciated.
We have a 28' TT.

Thanks,
Wm

We stayed at Appalachian two years ago and the staff and owners are nice and run a well maintained place. It is mostly seasonal sites with some pull thrus for non'seasonal RVers. The pull thrus are fairly long and can easily handle a coach with a toad. No cable and lousey TV reception. They do have wifi. If you do stay there be sure to go to roadside america which is right down the street.
I would sugest traveling a little fouther and staying at Spring Gulch in Lancaster--their address is really New Holland. We go there every year. If you request a site out back on the mountain you get large wooded lots. This place has everything. When in the area be sure to go to Shady Maple smorgasbord--you will not be disappointed!! Intercoarse on RT 340 is another place you might enjoy.

I'm back again.
My wife just informed me that I had a brain fart and gave you some wrong information. We were going to go to Appalachian but ended up at Mountian Springs instead so I gave you a short review of the wrong place. I'd still recommend Spring Gulch.

It just dawned on me that next weekend is Labor day weekend.
I got on the phone yesterday and was able to find a spot at Penn, Dutch campground.
All the others, at least the ones I called, were full.

WHEW!

Thanks for the ideas,
Wm
