    Planning vacation and want to know what town is most representative of Lancaster’s Amish community, as we will only have two nights there. Please list campgrounds in the area too.

    • Hi Paula – While the Amish reside throughout eastern and southern Lancaster County, you’ll probably want to start your visit in either Intercourse or Bird-in-Hand, which are only five miles apart along Route 340 east of Lancaster city. From there you can take a local guided tour or an Amish buggy ride to learn more about our Amish neighbors. Tour guides will be able to point you to other communities that might be of interest to you. (Our Amish Attractions page gives other resources you might find helpful.) You’ll find our directory of Lancaster County campgrounds here. Hope you enjoy your visit!

      Just spent a week in Lancaster. We stayed at Old Mill Stream Campground which is located right next to an Amish farm. The campground is in a perfect location for touring Amish country. Also campground is great. Restaurants, and shopping nearby.
