This isn't a destination boondocking spot, but it will give you a safe, reasonably quiet and private location to spend the night, on a gravel pad behind a barn just off of Rt 30. There is water, and 30 amp service. The wifi will not work at the camper, but is available elsewhere on the property. There are several acres for kids to play in the grass or to walk your dog. We do not live here, but the pole building houses our rock cutting shop (just a big hobby - no commercial traffic) and we have a pretty extensive collection of rocks and minerals which we'd be happy to share with you if you have an interest!
Please stay on our side of the white fence behind your camper if wandering around the 6 acre property. We do not live here, so please respect the privacy of the neighbors! Please take all trash with you as we do not have trash pickup . We will be putting in a fire ring soon, but if it's not there yet, please refrain from a campfire.
If you're interested, there is a box on the outside of the building near the water hookup that contains some information on the area and a local map.
We are just off a main road, with a gravel driveway leading behind our building. There is room to turn around in a gravel lot.
Please park the tow vehicle in the parking lot behind the brown pole building
We're a good stop if you're on your way somewhere! Rt. 30 is a major east/west corridor. Gettysburg is an easy 18 mile drive to the west. Lancaster (PA Dutch Country) is 34 miles to the east, Hershey PA is 42 miles north. Baltimore MD is around 50 miles south.
More locally, there's a huge farmer's market/flea market about 5 miles away (open weekends) & good antiquing in the village of New Oxford. York PA is known for factory tours (like the Harley Davidson factory) and it's history as the first US Capitol. There is golf nearby. The spot is in a safe and semi-rural area. It is a few miles to gas/shopping/restaurants.
Got to experience a real Pennsylvania Thunder-boomer while staying on this beautiful, peaceful, safe property. Thank you so much for hosting me and my rv for a safe night stay and a wonderful chance to chat and tour your collection. I look forward to meeting you again and I hope others take this opportunity.
Thank you both so much, we had an extremely pleasant time.
Highly recommended if you are in the area, the site was well prepared and very peaceful.
These members are an invaluable asset to the Boondocking community. The only wish would have been that you joined sooner!
