Appalachian RV Campground

The Appalachian RV Campground has the best of both worlds: it’s close to several wild state and forest parks and state game lands. It’s also close to the heart of the Pennsylvania-Dutch countryside. RV camp near the Amish farmlands, where the pace of life is slower, where homey food can be had, and where conversations are valued and savored.Though 357 sites for RV camping sounds like a lot, it’s spread out over 87 acres of land. There are pull-through and back-in sites with full and partial hookups. A dump station is available should a guest require it. Leashed pets are welcomed. Appalachian RV Campground prides itself on being family-friendly, and it offers several fun activities for children and adults alike, including craft programs, bingo games, mini-golf, a heated swimming pool, and tournaments. The recreation room has a billiard table and TV with a DVD library. The restrooms, which has hot showers and laundry, are wheelchair-accessible. Appalachian RV Campground is, however, open only April through November.The closest town is Shartlesville, PA, which has a handful of restaurants and shops at which you’re bound to find the perfect memorabilia to remind you of the Airstream camping adventure in Pennsylvania countryside. For more options in shopping and dining, Reading is about 20 miles south. Get hyped for the perfect RV camping vacation and book an RV in Berks County, PA.

The Great Outdoors

To the north, the Blue Mountain ridge travels from west to east. The low mountain, which was once higher than the Rockies millions of years ago, is ancient and worn. It hides secrets within its depths. Nearby Crystal Cave, a few miles north of Kutztown, hints at mysteries that can still be found inside the mountain. The Crystal Cave, which was discovered in 1871, has thousands of stalagmites and stalactites, flowstones, soda straws, crystal formations, mineral pools, and other geological wonders.State Game Land 110 covers a majority of the mountain to the north of Appalachian RV Campground. Though there are no official trails maintained by the state, hikers, hunters, and various animals have established trails that meander up and down the mountain. A portion of the Appalachian Trail (AT) passes through this state game land, primarily following the top of the mountain ridge. Join the AT thru-hikers by hiking a section of the Appalachian Trail. Though it is possible to hoof it straight up the mountainside, the closest access point, called Schuylkill Gap, may be easiest because it makes use of switchback trails to climb up the ridge. It is about a half-mile north of Hamburg, PA. From there, trek along the top of the mountain ridge for about 15 miles to the next point, which is close to Schubert, PA. At the halfway point is a small historic cabin which was built in the late 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps as a part of the New Deal created by President Roosevelt. It is open to any hikers in need of shelter during storms or overnight.During certain times of the years, these state game lands and the neighboring state parks and forest parks are open to hunting. Though deer hunting is the preferred target because the deer population is very robust, hunters also enjoy small-game hunting of waterfowls, grouses, rabbits, and other critters. Though bear hunting is possible, there is a very limited number of permits because black bears are scarce in Pennsylvania.

Exploring the Area

In the heart of the Pennsylvania countryside, it’s easy to feel far-removed from modern cities. However, with the help of a rental motorhome, traveling from town to town in search of various attractions is a simple matter. Bustling Harrisburg, which has an active art, music, and culture scene, is only a few miles to the west. Hershey, PA, is the home of the world-famous Hershey chocolate factory. People arriving into the town are greeted by the aroma of cocoa, which wafts for miles around. Charming street lamps shaped like Hershey Kisses line the downtown area. Chocolate and confectionary shops are the mainstay business in downtown. The town also boasts a world-class amusement park with top-notch, state-of-the-art roller coasters and water rides that are thrilling. The family-friendly park also has several tamer options for toddlers and young children.The town of Reading, PA, which was memorialized by a popular real-estate board game, is a thriving town of around 90,000 residents. It boasts several museums, art galleries, and a vibrant craft-beer scene. Their pretzels are nothing to bat an eye at, too. The town, which is known as The Pretzel City, has several bakeries that specialize in award-winning pretzels.At the end of a long day of adventuring and sightseeing, retreat into the comfort of a camper rental. This part of Pennsylvania is prone to humid summers and mosquitos. Listen to the sounds of nature outside your door as the sun dips beyond the horizon.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
