White Oak Campground
Reviewed 27 July 2011

I reviewed White Oaks a year ago, mentioning that the bathrooms were clean but in dire need of remodeling. Well, much to my disappointment, the bathrooms have not changed except that they are now another year older and so rundown that they look dirty even after being cleaned by staff. The entrance to the individual showers are comprised of slimy wooden slats. They are black with age and almost certainly mold. The entire restroom/shower area is VERY damp, in large part due to poor ventilation on account of a very noisy undersized exhaust fan. The bathroom faucets are of the type that must be held in the on position as they turn off immediately upon release, making it almost impossible to wash your hands.
Otherwise, an OK place in a nice area. Please know that the vast majority of "campers" here are long term stayers and mostly seniors. If you dislike noisy kids and don't mind yukky bathrooms, White Oak is for you. This campground does does not seem to attract families with children, so don't expect your kids to have anyone to pal with while camping. I wish I had thought to take photos of the bathroom for posting!

My family and I tent camp with our friends who have a camper. White Oak Campgroud accomodated our request to be near each other. The staff is very friendly. The sites were well maintained and clean. The bathroom/shower facilities were exceptionally maintained and clean. The camp store had everything you could need. They had some fun events, such as a ho-down jam session, and the playground for the young children was fun. One annoyance was the Amish woman and your girls walking around the campground, some abrefoot, trying to hawk their wares. They were not pushy, but I did feel uncomfortable saying No every time they asked if we wanted to buy something. Other than that, which some people find interesting, I would highly recommend this campground to anyone. The Strasberg Railroad and Dutch Wonderland Amusement Park were within minutes from White Oak.

We found out about this campground through an internet search. Located in Lancaster County, it is 7 miles from the corner of Lincoln Highway and Rt. 896. It was quiet and "woodsy". The vast majority of camping spots are shaded by very beautiful large trees. The staff were pleasant and personable. On Saturday night, a group of blue grass musicians performed in front of the camp's general store from 6 Pm to 9PM. A local Amish woman arrived around 7 PM and wandered through the campground with a wagon containing hand made aprons and pot holders she was selling.
I can't give White Oak a 5 because while clean, the bathrooms are in dire need of remodeling. If it matters to you, know that pets are welcomed here! Not a lot of amenities, but they do have a small playground for the kids.
