We camp at Roamer's at least 2 times a year for the past 6 years. It is right off Rt. 30 outside of Gap Pa. All of the Amish country is accessible from their location. The staff are very friendly, helpful, and easy to deal with. Stores are close by if supplies are needed. Always a restful and quite stay..... Only bummer, it rained our last night...

We stayed in one of the cabins for a weekend in June. The cabin itself was absolutely adorable. Everything was very clean, much cleaner than I would expect a cabin to be at a campground. They provided toilet paper, soap, dishes, cups, silverware, even a lighter was there. The shower had hot water and there was a microwave, fridge, and little oven with a stove top. We brought our own linens and pillows. Perfect for kids who want to go camping and parents who don’t lol. Total “glamping” feel in the cabin. The cabin is situated close to other cabins as well as an adorable wooden boat playground. We had a campfire out front both nights and used the grill as well. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The only “issue” I had was booking. It was a little difficult for me to reach them initially to book, and you had to book over the phone which isn’t my preference since I had never been there. Being in Amish country, I kind of expected it so I wasn’t completely put off by it. It all turned out fine obviously, but I would have preferred to book online. The campground is close to an antique train museum, so if you look online in advance you could book your trip for one of the events there. It was super cute and my kids thought the trains were cool. It’s also close to some tourist attractions. We went on a horse and buggy ride through an Amish farm. Lots of shopping nearby as well. I would absolutely go back and recommend to anyone looking for a fun little camping experience.

We arrived and were met by a very polite lady at the store. She told us that an accident knocked out power and the internet was done and that we could come back and pay our balance once it was restored. I received a map and location of our site and we were on our way. The site # was 95, a pull through. The site was not level, be prepared and bring your items to level your site. Was downhill and low on the passenger side of the camper. The grass is my biggest complaint. The grass was HIGH and needed cut. Lot's of mosquito's at night from rain and tall grass. Amish family came through the campground selling baked goods, neat experience. Aside from the grass problem, the campground was very clean, did not use the bathhouses. Cable, water, and electric all good

This campground is very quiet and peaceful and perfect if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle. Campground borders an Amish farm and you will get to see the Amish going about their business. Can't say enough about the hosts. They are very accommodating and allowed us to move to another site when the site we had did not meet our needs We will definitely be coming back

Room Tip: the view from the field is so worth is. Book sites in the 90s for view of the Amish farm

We have enjoyed staying at Roamers for several years. Last year 2015 was the first time I was dissatisfied. It took several attempts to get someone on the phone to book a site. After I finally got through and booked a site, the women explained that they were on lunch. Several hours later when I arrived before 5pm the store was closed. When the woman got there she explained to me that she was on lunch! The grass was not cut. There were flies everywhere. Only one bathroom was working and dirty. The one stall had no toilet paper so I asked the woman (she must of been done her lunch finally) for toilet paper. The response I got was well can't you use the toilet paper in the other stall? I asked is there were new owners because I never experienced Roamers as being unkempt, and the woman told me no. I just read somewhere on the reviews that new owners did take over. I think the woman lied to me. Another clue was that they are no longer a Good Sam Club member. Now I'm in a dilemma as I always enjoyed staying here, and now have to find another campsite that is next to farm lands. Ok well thanks

This place was absolutely perfect. The tent sites are right along the Amish road and farm. We got to see up close the farmers working, the children playing and the family going for an evening walk. The campground backs up to an Amish house. Bathrooms were very clean and the staff was amazing. It was very quiet. I know we went early in the year for tent camping (this past weekend) so I'm not sure what it's like during the season. It was very easy to find with the big sign next to the main road. We found everything fairly easy. We had no true complaints of our entire experience here. We will most certainly be coming back again!

We've been camping at Roamers for the last 2 years as seasonal campers and have had GREAT service from the staff and owners. They have always been willing to help with any problems that arise. Even in the middle of the night when we had power issues. They have completely redone the water service at the grounds and are always making upgrades. I believe when they first purchased the property, they knew what they were getting into, they were just handed the campground as is. They knew what was going to have to be done and the owner has been doing constant upgrades thru out the campground working morning, noon and night. They have been working very hard to make it a great place for everyone to come relax, and camp. We enjoy our time here with our family and look forward to the 2016 camping season.

My family has been staying at Roamers for over 6 years now, 4 of which have been as Seasonal campers. It's small, quiet and friendly. No big national owner bells and whistles, but that's why we like it!!! Upgrade to the campground are in progress by the new owners and we are looking forward to many more years with them. Where else can you stay and have a Steam engine and Antique Tractor events next door along with the Amish families stopping by most evenings selling fresh vegetables and baked goods?

Wonderful campground to stay in. I've been working up here locally for two and a half years and the campground is a home away from home for me. I love my great corner lot with a wonderful view of the campground and surrounding farms. The owners are extremely helpful whenever I need something and nothing is too much trouble for them. Office staff are professional and polite. I can highly recommend the campground to families, retirees and professionals looking for a great place to stay.
