Piggy Hill is a small farm located in the Susquehanna region of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania and is situated at the entrance of Fishing Creek, a 170 acre nature preserve.

At Piggy Hill farm, Maryanne Oinkspot the KuneKune pig is the unofficial mascot. Maryanne, her buddy Lambert the black sheep, and a couple of horses border the meadow of the camp site. They are very friendly and love to meet and greet.

Camp in the woods with the stream at your feet or at the top of the meadow where bluebirds and purple martins zip to and fro.

Stop by the 1/2 acre pond for a picnic or maybe some fishing. Watch the Amish drive by on their buggies on their way to church. Venture off the farm and head to the top of the hill to explore the 224 acres of the Susquehannock State Park. Go kayaking on the river or on the lake at Muddy Run.

While here, you might as well go star gazing at the Muddy Run Observatory, visit the famed Lancaster Central Market, and take a trip to the Amish Village.

There's lots to do here on Piggy Hill. There's also lots of nothing to do... if you know what I mean.

Lora was very communicative from the start and was beyond sweet with meeting us. Everything about camping out on her farm was amazing. The only down side was that we didn’t get to stay longer. I truly can’t wait and camp out with more time. Really looking forward to coming back. Take care and see you soon!

This is the perfect place for family camping, especially those with young kids or those relatively new to camping. The four campsites on this property are well spaced from each other. While not completely secluded, they are generously separated and private.

There are many highlights to list, but we particularly enjoyed the many friendly animals that live on Lora’s property. There’s a pig, a sheep, a couple kittens, chickens (with delicious fresh eggs available for purchase and delivered right to your campsite in the morning), and two horses. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a bag of treats to share with Maryanne (pig) and Lambert (sheep), who love attention and are especially happy to meet children.

All the campsites are nestled along a small creek that runs the border of the property and each came equipped with a fire pit and trash can. There’s a pond for fishing and we saw other campers haul in some bites. Susquehannock state park is right up the street (walkable or a quick drive) and has a playground, modern toilets and other state park amenities. The hosts are generous with their time and knowledge of the area and are more than happy to offer suggestions on local sightseeing, hikes, and places to eat. The location is perfectly located in the heart of Amish country and all it has to offer.

Our stay at Piggy Hill was wonderful and we look forward to coming back again soon. Lora and her family were so welcoming to us and our small children and went the extra mile to ensure our experience was exceptional.

We had such a wonderful camping experience on Lora’s farm. The site was beautiful with lots of room for the kids to explore and run. We received a very warm welcome, and loved that we could preorder firewood, delicious baked goods, and fresh eggs. The kids spent every minute they could petting the kittens, the pig, and the lamb, and we are so grateful that they were invited to do so at will.

Very friendly host and accommodating children to help out. Scenery around the camp site is spectacular. You get the full feeling of seclusion with the comfort of knowing the family is nearby to help out and local stores are close for any forgotten items. Highly recommend!

Piggy Hill is a beautiful old farm with a trusting & friendly family & their animals. Great for guests with kids and dogs! New to the renting of their land, I’m sure the farm is only going to get better. Only critiques would be that the bathroom is not quite as close as advertised, but the state park is definitely worth checking out :) We stayed at site #2 and found the stream a little hairy to traverse with the wet weather, but found an easier route to load out. Hope to be back again soon!!!

Great site - note about bathroom

We had a great time at Piggy Hill. We stayed at camp site #5 which was the most tucked away from the house and the other campsites. Note that all campsites are close to the road, so you will indeed hear cars and horse/buggies. Most important is that there is not a bathroom on site, it is up the road about a mile in the Susquehannock State Park. Peeing in the woods wasn't a big deal for us, but I can imagine this could pose a problem for some. Another thing to keep in mind while you plan your trip is that we could hear almost everything from the other sites, as well as the neighbor across the street who seemed to be testing his new sound system late into the night. The site was great, the animals were so friendly, and overall we recommend!

Response from Lora , the Host, on October 13th, 2020

Thanks for coming, Britta! Glad you had a good time! BTW, that music was coming from people at the park camping out! They were about a mile away, but that sound traveled, didn't it? It was great having you, Happy trails!
