Mountain Creek Campground is one of the cleanest, neatest and best-run Good Sam Parks in south-central Pennsylvania.

Nearby Attractions

Located in Gardners, only a few miles from the Pennsylvania Turnpike and nearby I-81. It’s easy to get to the historic Gettysburg National Battlefield Park, all of the attractions in Hershey and Harrisburg, the state Capitol. The United States National War College is located in Carlisle, as well as the US Army Heritage and Education Center, an outdoor museum offering tanks, helicopters, jeeps, bunkers and much more: a must see for all of our Veterans and their families.

Dickinson College

Dickinson College is a private, residential liberal arts college in Carlisle. It was founded in 1773 as Carlisle Grammar School.  Dickinson was chartered September 9, 1783, six days after the signing of the Treaty of Paris, making it the first college to be founded after the formation of the United States.

For fishing enthusiasts, the campsites at Mountain Creek Campground are located just minutes from Pennsylvania’s premier trout stream, the Yellow Breeches.

Car Enthusiasts

Are you an antique car or truck enthusiast? Then camp at Mountain Creek Campground and take a look at the full schedule of car and truck shows and swaps at the nearby 102-acre Carlisle Fairgrounds. You might just find that classic Corvette, Mustang or Pontiac GTO you have always wanted. You should really plan to come during the big Spring Carlisle Swap Meet Car Corral and Auction. It’s incredible and a lot of fun.

There are plenty of weekend activities that are planned for your enjoyment and entertainment. The Mountain Creek Campground staff wants to make sure that your visit will be filled with great memories. You will want to return here time and time again.

Many RV parks offer a swimming pool, a large recreation room complete with pool table and arcade games, miniature golf, pedal karts, and playground. But at Mountain Creek Campground these all contribute to all-around family fun. You can also enjoy horseshoes, volleyball, tetherball, basketball, softball, and a great walking trail.

If you are a snowbird heading south in the fall from Canada and all points north, then Mountain Creek Campground is a super convenient place to stop near I-81…and come back in the spring, too, as you head back home.
