Originally inhabited by the Lenape and Susquehannock tribes, Palmyra, Pennsylvania was settled by Scotch-Irish and German Palatinate migrants in the early 18th century. A post office was established in 1804, with the name of Palmyra (after the Roman outpost in Syria) becoming official by 1810.
Palmyra developed following the completion of the Union Canal in 1827 before the Age of Steam arrived with the Lebanon Valley Railroad in 1857. But it was in the post-Civil War years that it really flourished with a grain warehouse, a slaughterhouse, and a lumber mill bringing industry to the town.
Today, Palmyra is a charismatic place to rent an RV and base yourself while exploring the sights of Lebanon County. It’s within easy access of scenic reserves and the military history of Fort Indiantown Gap, as well as the family-friendly attractions of Hersheypark.
Pick up your campervan rental in Palmyra and drive into Lebanon to spend an afternoon on the shores of Stoever’s Dam. Aside from the 23-acre lake that can be explored by boat, there are also interpretive trails and softball fields where you can get some exercise. Stop in at the historic Nature Barn to learn about the native flora and fauna of the region, then relax over lunch at one of the park’s picnic tables.
If you’re a keen angler, head north to the Memorial Lake State Park, which is well stocked with northern pike, yellow perch, and a variety of bass. It’s surrounded by the military reservation at Fort Indiantown Gap and was established in 1945 to remember the Pennsylvania National Guard soldiers who served in the World Wars. If you’re not into fishing, you can explore one of the surrounding trails or visit during the winter months when ice skating and cross-country skiing are on offer.
Continue north, and you’ll arrive at the Swatara State Park, which nestles between the picturesque Second and Blue Mountains. You can follow part of the Appalachian Trail that extends through the rolling fields and woodlands at the southern end of the park or rent a canoe to slowly paddle down the Swatara Creek. The park is also home to the Swatara Rail Trail that extends 10 miles along the western banks of the Swatara Creek, passing remnants of the Union Canal and the Lebanon–Tremont Branch of the Reading Railroad.

Another nearby option is the Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA Journey, which could be a good option if you’re traveling with a big rig.

Or, head to Manheim and the PA Dutch Country RV Resort, which offers a good selection of three-point hookups and an on-site store where you can grab any basic supplies. This pet-friendly RV park also has a swimming pool where you can cool off during the summer months and a children’s playground, as well as a mini-golf course.
