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.

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.
