We go to Lancaster a couple times per year and have stayed at several different campgrounds. None of their full hookup sites are big or private. We just had a really nice weekend at Old Mill Stream in site 101. It's on the edge of the campground with a view of an Amish farm field. We could watch the farmer plowing from our QUE. If you have kids 101 is within view of the playground, but not on top of it. Plus, if Dutch Wonderland is in the plans you can walk there. Amazingly there is no traffic noise in this campground. We also like Country Acres, but you can really hear the traffic, and have to be careful which site you choose or you could be backing up to a junk yard. IMO the nicest sites are the ones that have only water and electric. They have a pool. Beacon Hill is adults only and therefor very quiet. It's no frills, and the sites are indeed close together. It makes a nice home base for seeing things in Lancaster though. You can walk to the villiage of Intercourse, and the location is the quietest of the 3. DH likes it there because you're on the edge of civilization and he can jog or bike through farm land right from the campsite. It's also the cheapest of the 3
Spring Gulch is a resort type campground with all the amenities you can think of and they do have big nice sites. If I was going to Lancaster area for my yearly vacation and had little kids I'd stay here. It's really expensive though.
