Fairview Farms Airfield

15 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents66 acres · Pine Grove, PA
The 66-acre property has been licensed as an airport (PS20) since the 1980s. It is currently an active, private airport. We don't sell fuel or offer services beyond camping so we primarily have only air traffic with few to no landings each year. In other words, it is very quiet here except during the occasional low pass. We are very eager for pilots to fly in and camp out! The beautiful sunsets and stargazing night skies are a real treat for anyone that comes to visit. Lots of deer, birds, and other wildlife can be seen out and about. Bring your telescope and binoculars to view all the property has to offer! Note that we are always working to improve our slice of heaven, thus we do have tools, vehicles, and equipment stored around the farm that if not used now will be one day. We appreciate your understanding that some areas are used for our personal / farm storage. If you're not into looking at our farmware, there are a few nearby campgrounds. The hot tub is located next to the owner's home. Guests are welcome to use this at any time but must reserve and pay for a time slot. * Book this through the Extras * We are within walking distance of Swatara State Park and close to the Appalachian Trail. Short drive to the local winery, bowling alley, pub/diner, and movie theater. Grocery stores and gas are also nearby. Miles of hiking, rail trail, single-track mountain biking, and kayaking are all right here! See our kayak and bike rentals under extras! Hershey Park is approximately a 30-minute drive from our location. Rausch Creek, Anthracite, and Reading off-road areas are also nearby. Note: Monthly rental discounts are available. Work-stay exchange programs are available. We are always looking for good reliable part-time help on the farm! Please ask! Fall leaves colors are looking awesome! Come enjoy the leaves by day and stars by night beside your campfire! Follow us on Instagram: @fairview_farms_airfield

Lakeside camping near Lancaster with fishing guide

Overview

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.
