Hello everyone, I will be moving to Harrisburg for my job. Unfortunately, I have to sell my house out here in Colorado before I can buy a home in the Harrisburg area. For now, I would like to park my RV and live out of that (while my family is still in Colorado) while I wait for the house to sell. Does anyone know of a campground that has monthly RV parking at reasonable rates? (less than normal apartment rents.) I only found one place so far (east camping and storage) and they want 400 dollars a month plus electricity. Does anyone have any suggestions? I can't afford big rent while still paying the mortgage in Colorado. Thank you for any guidance or advice you can give.

The only place I know of -- and I can't speak to their price or quality -- is out along PA-743, just west of I-81. If you take I-81 north to exit 80 and turn left onto 743, the lots are located just to the right of the convenience store on your right. Again, I know nothing about them or how reputable they are.

I doubt you'll find much in or around Harrisburg itself. I know Hersheypark has camping facilities but I don't know what their terms are. There's also another one south of Hershey along PA-743 called something like Hershey Conewago Campground. I don't know exactly where it is, just that it's somewhere between Elizabethtown and Hershey. This is probably a good 30-40 minutes from Harrisburg.

You might have better luck looking in the rural areas to the west and northwest of the city. Also, it might be worth contacting some area RV dealers. Surely they'll have some info. The only one I can think of off the top of my head is Grumbine's RV, but I'm sure there are others.

Many of our state parks have RV hookups, and there are quite a few within an hour of Harrisburg. But I think their RV sites are limited to stays measured in weeks, not months. I could be mistaken, however.

Good luck!

Here is the fairly active trade group for private campgrounds in PA, perhaps calling their office weekdays might help: Contact PRVCA
