Where to Camp with the Family This Summer

May 20, 2020

Summer vacations may look different for many of us. Yet, one of the options that many Lebanon County families enjoy each year is camping, and many campgrounds and state parks are open or preparing to open.

We asked families who follow our Facebook page to share some of their favorite spots to camp. You can also find a list of campgrounds on  and a list of campgrounds in state parks on the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources' website.

If you know a great spot that we should add to our list, send me an email at
