The Great Outdoors

There are lots of fun outdoor activities to explore while camping in an RV at Lake-In-Wood Resort. French Creek State Park is nearby, which is a huge wooded park with plenty of opportunities for outdoor fun. There are over 35 miles of hiking trails at this state park, with options for all skill levels. There are also 20 miles of challenging mountain biking trails, as well as one long trail that is accessible for equestrian use. During the winter, hiking trails can be used for cross-country skiing. There's also an area for sledding.The park is also home to Hopewell Lake and Scotts Run Lake, which have a combined 90 acres of water for boating and fishing. There are boat launches on both lakes, and boat rentals are available during the summer. Boats should display some form of boat registration - talk to the park office for more details. Though swimming is not allowed in the lakes, there is a pool complex near Hopewell Lake that is open during the summer. Both lakes offer fishing, with Scotts Run Lake offering trout and coldwater fish, and Hopewell Lake offering bass, pike, walleye, panfish, and more. Ice fishing is allowed on both lakes in the winter.There are several approved hunting lands you can use when you book an RV rental in Lancaster County.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


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.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


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.


How does check-in work?


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.
