The Great Outdoors

The Pequea Creek Campground is a good base for visiting the Tucquan Glen Nature Preserve, a picturesque ravine that opens into the Susquehanna River. A trail lined with rhododendrons and hemlocks follows the Tucquan Creek to the Susquehanna River, accessing a wild and rugged lower glen. A walk through the Tucquan Glen Nature Preserve can be combined with a visit to the nearby Pinnacle Overlook, which offers spectacular views across the Susquehanna River from 380 feet above.Just over an hour’s drive north of the Pequea Creek Campground is the Swatara State Park, which encompasses 3,520 acres of rolling fields and woodlands between the Second and Blue Mountains. A section of the famous Appalachian Trail traverses the southern end of the park while the scenic Swatara Creek can be explored by canoe or kayak. Also of note is a 1930's log cabin built by Armar Bordner and the Swatara Rail Trail, which follows the remains of a canal and railroad that were constructed to service anthracite mines in the region.Camping at the Pequea Creek Campground is also a good base for visiting the Michaux State Forest, which is named after French botanist André Michaux. He arrived in the United States in the 18th century to study and gather plants for King Louis XVI’s Royal Gardens. While the Michaux State Forest was logged for many years, its second-growth forest is now a recreational hub, with everything from hiking to fishing and mountain biking on offer. Those looking for a long hike can explore the magnificent Blue Ridge Mountains along a section of the Appalachian Trail while anglers can try their luck luring a variety of fish species at the peaceful Long Pine Run Reservoir.

Exploring the City

Pequea campers are a 20-minute drive from Quarryville, home to supermarkets for stocking up on grocery supplies, as well as plenty of fast-food restaurants and eateries if you want to dine out. There are also gas stations if you need to fill up your RV rental, together with services such as banks and ATMs.The Pequea Creek Campground is also just a 25-minute drive from the center of Lancaster, which is clustered with historic Georgian and Federal buildings. You can learn about the people and events that have shaped the region at the Lancaster Campus of History before touring the 1828 Federal mansion of President James Buchanan. Coincide your visit with an opening day of the Lancaster Central Market, which is the oldest continuously operated market in the United States. Shop for fresh produce, cut flowers, and baked goods while soaking up the community atmosphere.If you’re traveling with kids, don’t miss a visit to the Dutch Wonderland, a family-friendly amusement park that’s packed with rides, roller coasters, and water slides. Step through the castle facade built by potato farmer Earl Clark in 1963, then let loose at Exploration Island, which features more than 15 animatronic dinosaurs. During the summer months, the tropical-themed water play area of Duke’s Lagoon opens, with live shows and children’s games held throughout the season.Also nearby is the Amish Farm and House, a historic rural attraction that offers an insight into Amish life in Pennsylvania. You can tour an original, centuries-old Amish farmhouse and learn about Amish education, then visit the smokehouse, herb garden, and summer kitchen. Try your hand at milking the cows and watch the blacksmith at work or coincide your visit with one of their fun-filled goat yoga sessions.Whether you want to hike the Appalachian Trail or discover the rich history of Lancaster, book an RV rental in Lancaster County and start planning your next vacation.

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.
