Fairview Farms Airfield
14 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents66 acres · PAThe 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 approx a 30 min 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!

River Mountain Outdoors
4 sites · Lodging, Tents83 acres · Bloomsburg, PAThe history of the Pump House began in 1878, when three ambitious men hatched a plan for the world's first long-distance underground oil pipeline which would transport oil from well to refinery more quickly and efficiently than the horse-drawn wagons of the time. Pumping stations were needed every fifty miles along this long route to keep pressure on the pipeline so that the oil could reach its destination. Pump House Bed and Breakfast is one of the only properties in the country in which the both the original homes of the foremen and the large brick buildings remain. Doug, owner, has spent more than 20 years lovingly restoring these foreman houses as well as the large industrial brick buildings. The Brick Barn Hall once housed steam pumps to pressurize the pipe and keep the oil moving, and the Catawissa Cabin behind it served as the telegraph office. The Studio Hall contained boilers that produced the steam to power the pumps, while the adjoining Studio Cabin functioned as a blacksmith's workspace. Today, the buildings function as reception spaces for weddings and other special events, and house private suites as well as an art studio where Doug pursues his work and teaches drawing, ceramics, and stained glass classes. The Season House, one of the two foreman homes, features additional guest accommodations while Doug resides in the other foreman house. Visit and experience a piece of PA history!

When summer hits the City of Brotherly Love, sometimes you need an escape. Green pastures, lakes, and pristine forests are just miles from Philadelphia, waiting for you to pitch a tent and cool off.

Philly's closest camping is across the river in New Jersey. Here, you can get away from it all without going all that far. Gloucester County has several private camping resorts, as well as RV parks with swimming pools and Wi-Fi if you prefer a little pampering.

French Creek State Park is just an hour's drive away. This large park offers miles of hiking, lake trout fishing, and kayaking. The public campground has tent sites, some with electric, plus a limited number of full hook-ups for RVs. The camp also offers modern cabins, rustic cottages, and yurts.

Ridley Creek State Park is excellent for family-friendly day trips. Just 16 miles from the city, visitors find hiking trails, creek fishing, and camping for organized groups like scouts. An equestrian farm within the park holds pony rides on summer weekends and horseback riding year-round. Or you can visit Colonial Plantation, a living history farm where oxen still till the fields.

About 30 miles away, the Wharton State Forest is a massive 122,000-acres, making it the largest park in New Jersey. The 28-mile Batona Trail cuts through the Pine Barrens, passing by primitive tent camping for multi-day treks. For basics like showers and water spigots, pitch tent near Atsion Lake. The facilities are older, but the camping sites are spacious and private.

For a deeper escape, drive past the Poconos to Ricketts Glen State Park in northeast Pennsylvania. The challenging Falls Trail System passes more than 20 waterfalls, including the 94-foot Ganoga Falls. The campground on Lake Jean has mostly non-electric sites, plus furnished cabins.

Hipcamp is created with ❤️ and hope for our future.
