We were hosted by GORVing and Thousand Trails PA Dutch Country RV Resort, but as usual, all opinions are my own.
I’m going to confess, usually when we head on vacation, I look forward to being on the go, go, go. This time, I actually needed to relax and slow down and nothing better than camping to bring that peaceful, relaxing feeling. Today I’m sharing my Camping in PA experience.
Camping In PA
PA Dutch Country is one of the Thousand Trails campgrounds. Thousand Trails is a network of 81 campgrounds located in popular camping destinations throughout the United States and British Columbia, Canada.
Thousand Trails offers customers the best value in camping with a variety of membership options. However, each Thousand Trails campground caters to members and non-members alike, so you do not need to be a member to enjoy these campgrounds.
Thousand Trails campgrounds are packed with varying amenities and activities such as swimming pools, basketball, bocce ball, boating, fishing, clubhouses, hiking and biking trails, tennis, volleyball, pickleball, mini golf, playgrounds and more.
While Thousand Trails and Encore RV Resorts are affiliated brands, this campground carries the Thousand Trails brand, and is not an Encore RV Resort.
Here are some of the things we loved about the campground:
Beautiful cabin, clean and newly renovated, our cabin offered enough privacy and a beautiful view of trees from our porch!
It was so nice to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning and just hear nothing but the birds singing.
It offered a grill and firepit, as well as a picnic bench so we didn’t need to bring lawn chairs to enjoy time outdoors! Bonus points for that! A firepit really makes it cozy too, I can see why people have them in their backyards throughout the year as they not only offer warmth but ambiance too. People may not need to find many Reasons For An Outdoor Fireplace or Firepit as I’m sure they’ll be sold on it already.
Nothing better than a juicy steak & vegetables cooked on a charcoal grill!
It even inspired the teens to explore and stay outdoors!
Love seeing teens lose their phones and going back to enjoying nature!
This comfortable rental has a sleeping nook with a bunk bed, a bedroom with a queen-sized bed, and a full bath. It sleeps 6 (2 adults/4 children).
In the living area is a dinette and sleeper sofa. The cozy kitchenette offers all of the conveniences of home, including a coffee maker, toaster, a full size refrigerator and 2-burner flat surface stove top with oven, cookware, utensils, and microwave.
A picnic table and fire pit with attached grill top extend the living space to the outdoors. They ask that you bring your own linens, towels, and blankets.
We received a beautiful welcome basket with PA Dutch goodies such as Whoopie pies, local cheese and cold cuts, muffins, cookies, jam, pickles, so many of our favorites!
Needless to say the teens claimed the basket and loved every bit of it!
The clean and inviting pool was the perfect spot for kids who wanted to cool off. And also for us who just wanted to enjoy a break from the summer heat at the campground while still being able to be outdoors to enjoy it!
We loved exploring the trail, available to campground guests only.
Accoring to Go RVing, Park Model RVs (sometimes referred to deluxe Cabins or Cottages) are unique units that provide temporary accommodations for recreation, camping or seasonal use. Park Model RVs are designed to look like a home, but they need to be hooked up to site electricity, sewer and water like any RV. They may have a front porch, a sleeping loft and are a great way to experience the campground lifestyle if you don’t have an RV or all the gear that goes with tent camping.”
Things To Do
We also loved the basketball court, miniature golf and all the beautiful quiet roads for walks and exploring
The Store was not opened when we were there, but it looked like a great place to grab things you forgot and grab a snack as well.
On the second day, the temperature hit 97F, so hubby decided not to cook and we went to look for local restaurants and explore the area.
We enjoyed trying out more local flavors at the local market
The Shoofly Pie was the highlight!
Dinner at a small local restaurant was the perfect way to end our visit to town and try out Dutch Cuisine! The corn pies were to die for!
They were gone before I could take a pic!
Back at the campground, we enjoyed dessert and coffee on the porch and another quiet walk and night there.
I wished we could stay longer!
We will definitely be back!
We will be empty nesters this fall!
I can’t wait to explore more campgrounds!
