Dutch Cousin Campground
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I have been coming here, solo, for three years now. I started in Cabin 53 in June of 2012, and went back (actually made my reservation for 2013 before I left!) in June 2013, and then am going back again this July 11. It's very nicely placed near things but not prohibitively far. It's VERY quiet, the people who are year round campers are extremely nice and wave when you go past.

The owners are extremely nice as well, very cordial and accomodating. The entire place is very clean, the restrooms and showers are very good. My cabin I always get is wonderful (the others are as well, they are all brand new looking but I have only stayed in mine). Has a nice swing on the porch on the front, AC inside (heat as well) and a simple toilet. TV/Fridge as well. So nice, such a great great place for a solo (for me) getaway!

Family wise, it's awesome as well - I am just remarking on my experience bc I go alone :)

Just such a nice place. Don't change a thing.

We stayed here in July with our 2 children, and we rented a cabin. Our cabin was small, had 2 bunk beds where the kids slept, and a full size bed in a separate room. There was a bathroom which was very clean, and a microwave, refrigerator, a tv, and also a small table and chairs. It was very cozy and convenient, since this was the first time we took our children camping!

The staff is very friendly, and the grounds are kept clean. The showers were in good condition too. It was a very quiet campground, which we loved. We will definitely return. The only thing I suggest is you bring an air mattress for the main bed, as the cushions were very thin, and the bed frame underneath is hard wood! Otherwise, it was great!

My husband and I stayed 4 nights in one of their one room cabins. We had an excellent stay. The campground is very clean and quiet. The wooded sites make it more enjoyable as you can sit in shady areas or the sun, depending on the time of day. The cabin we rented was spotlessly clean, we felt comfortable staying there. The staff was helpful and friendly. We didn't miss having a pool or entertainment area and if you are just looking for a peaceful few days, Dutch Cousin Campground is your place.

We will be staying at this campgound again.

We visited for a night in a two room cabin. It was nice, quiet and relaxing. It isn't an ideal campground if you're looking for your kids being completely occupied as there is no pool or entertainment area, we didn't feel the need for the extras for one night so it was fine for us. The cabin was wonderfully clean, the staff so kind and helpful. I would recommend this place for anyone looking for just a quiet relaxing time.

April 2013. You're sure to enjoy staying at this excellent campground. Three times a year this area of Pennsylvania hosts an antique "Extravaganza" .... and hundreds of antique dealers come to offer their wares. (There's also 8-10 antique malls within a few miles).

Camping at the Dutch Cousin Campground makes for a perfect antique get-away ...... flea markets and shopping all day and a clean, quiet .. and affordable ... place to spend the night. We loved it -- we will certainly be back again :)

We go camping just about every weekend and when we don't feel like going real far, we camp at Dutch Cousin Campground just outside of Denver, PA. We live about 15 minutes from the PA turnpike and Dutch Cousin is 5 minutes from the Reading Lancaster exit of the Turnpike, very convenient. Dutch Cousin is a medium size campground, around 100 sites, it is very wooded and if you like trees it's the place to go. The owners are a very friendly couple who are campers themselves. For those who can't last a weekend without email or face book or twitter, Dutch Cousin has WIFI access throughout the campground. Although many of the sites are occupied by seasonal campers, we have never had a problem booking a good site for the weekend. The campground is open year round and although all the sites have water from April thru October, many of them have water all winter long and most of the sites have sewer hook ups. All but the primitive tent sites have electricity. The campground is close to US 222 and is less than half an hour from both Reading and Lancaster. Personally, we have never had a bad experience camping at Dutch Cousin and neither has anyone we've recommended it to. They have very reasonable rates and plenty of firewood for a campfire. This place is quiet and friendly and is ideally located; what more could one ask for...

Room Tip: its a campground, bring your own room or rent a cabin.

We camped here last Fall (2011) with friends. It was soooo quiet, clean and just a beautiful place to relax. We took our dogs with us, of course and they were welcomed there too. The Green Dragon Auction is just a short drive away so we went there on Friday and bought all kinds of great stuff we didn't really need. I just called Camping Cousins to set up 2 sites for us and our friends to go back again next week.

You'll just love this place!
