I have probably been to about 100 campgrounds in my adult life and can honestly say this is the cleanest one I have ever been to. We stayed in the motel and our friends brought their camper. Both the Motel and Campground were awesome! The staff is very friendly, there are tons of kid's activities, there are two huge pools... More

I 1st called up asking questions (tons of questions). Why? Because I had not been camping on my own & my wife had never really camped before. It took years to get her to say yes to camping. Norma was very kind & patient. She answered all of my concerns & made me feel confident I could pull it off.... More

The price and accommodations are reasonable...but other than the flies which are all over the area and cellphone reception which is weak.My family always has an unbelievable time with the hayrides,pools, and friendly staff.

We stayed here recently with our 2 year old triplets. We had a great time! The motel room had 2 double beds and was still big enough to set up the kids pack and plays. We had plenty of room to walk around them. The property is in walking distance to Santa's Village...Perfect! The staff is wonderful. We met the... More

The Lantern Motel and Campground is fantastic. We have been staying at the motel for 10 years. The location is great. Right across the street is Santa's Village. Down the street is Fort Jefferson. There are numerous places to eat and grocery stores a few minutes down the road in Lancaster. The motel's guest have full use of the campground's... More

We stayed in the motel and it was perfect for what we needed! The room was clean and big enough for us. The room felt damp even with the air running full speed, not bad just trying to get towels dried was impossible. We stayed with the Santa's Village package which included one morning of free Farmer John's breakfast. It... More

The Lantern is a combination resort that is directly across the street from Santa's Village, a great place to take children. We usually tent camp although they have a hotel, trailer sites and also rent trailers much as you would a hotel room. The tent sites are huge and they all front on large expanses of grass. All of the... More

This was a great place to stop for the night. Staff was helpful, opened up the on site store for us, and was friendly. Laundry room had several washers and dryers. Room was clean and rate was very good. Also has a camp ground on site that looked very nice. Was bikrr friendly.

My family and I recently stayed overnight camping at the Lantern Resort Campground. There were many activities: ceramic painting, hay wagon ride, goats at a petting zoo, pools to swim in and a fun playground for my kids (6 and 2)... and even I enjoyed climbing and swinging. Our battery died on our vehicle (we blame the toddler for playing... More

We were lovers of the Lantern and had been spending many weekends there for several years. Last year we were able to get a seasonal spot and we were over the moon happy. This was a great thing for our family as all three of our children have ADHD and in addition our oldest child has an Autism Spectrum Disorder... More
