Waterside cabins near Lancaster guide


Southeast Pennsylvania is more than Philadelphia, so why not share some brotherly love with Lancaster? Lancaster County offers something for everyone, whether you’re camping with a partner, kids, or friends, although with easy access to amusement parks, Lancaster especially suits family-friendly getaways. The city sits just beyond Hershey, while mere miles separate central Lancaster from the thrills of Dutch Wonderland. Check into an RV park with a swimming pool, find a secluded tent campsite, or book a camp resort—no matter which you choose, you won’t need to leave Pennsylvania Dutch Country for a memorable camping experience.

Where to go

Central Lancaster

PA Dutch Country may be known for its Amish farmlands, but before you explore Lancaster’s picturesque surroundings, spend some time in the city itself. Full of rich history and unique charm, Lancaster is the perfect place to spend a night. Whether you want a family resort with free wifi or an RV site near hiking trails, the Lancaster camping experience offers access to a range of restaurants, galleries, and architecture.

New Holland

Once you’ve had your fill of Lancaster, head east. You’ll quickly understand why Amish Country’s vast hills and frequent farms deserve so much attention. Campsites near New Holland embrace the best of rural Pennsylvania. As you drive to your RV campground with full hookups, keep your eyes peeled for a horse and buggy. Once you arrive, savor a slow evening from your camping resort’s picnic table.

Clarke Lake

The physical land of Lancaster is one of Dutch Country’s main claims to fame—but the region’s waterways equally warrant a visit. Explore the area west of Lancaster, where the Susquehanna River blends into Clarke Lake. Tent camping in the area is always a good idea, but for an even better camping trip? A campsite with easy access to the water, where you can swim, fish, and relax at your own pace.

When to go

East Coast camping thrives in the summertime, when Pennsylvania’s weather comes with maximum sunshine. Yet because Lancaster County is all about the landscape, plan your camping experience for the fall. Amish Country is always breathtaking, but it peaks around October. The colorful season also comes with an abundance of farmer’s markets, so campers can enjoy Pennsylvania’s local produce from a cabin or RV site with a grill.
