Mill Creek Camping Area

Mill Creek Camping Area sign
The Mill Creek Camping Area is located in the southern end of Lancaster County Central Park, in the woods and fields behind the Environmental Center. A driveway leads from Eshelman Mill Road to the camping area parking lot. It is bordered on the west by Mill Creek and includes both woodland and grassy areas.


This tent-only camping area spans 10 acres and has five campsites. Campsites 1 through 4 can accommodate up to eight people each. Campsite 5 can be used for larger groups; however, groups of more than eight (8) campers must apply for a special large group permit.



A permit is required to camp. The maximum stay at the Mill Creek Camping Area is 14 consecutive days, followed by a 14 day absence. View the camping brochure for more information.
