Overview of Circle M RV Resort
More about Circle M
- Proximity to Amish country
- Wonderful pool areas and other outdoor sports
- Nice covered mini golf
- Actual real golf course ( I believe it was only 3 hole.. but was the only TT park we have seen that had a real golf course.
- Spread out size of campground helps avoid feeling cramped.
- Quiet general area
- Fun for Halloween
- Friendly staff
- Not many full hook up sites available.
- Didn’t like power lines running through part of park
- Better in summer when all pools are open
- Some of the roads for the sites with partial hook-ups are a bit sketchy
- Stick to main roads where the full-hook up sites are if you have a bigger rig
WIFI & Mail
Cell coverage was a bit dicey at times. Signal showed between 1-2 bar LTE, and at times was good, but signal dropped and disconnected much more frequently than in most areas we visit.
We didn’t have any deliveries here, so we can’t comment on that for this location. We always recommend calling ahead to check with the campground, as rules can change.

Our Experience of the Area
We spent a wonderful afternoon exploring Amish country and learning about their beliefs and how they live on a tour with the Amish Farm and House. We booked Option 3, which included a guided tour of the Amish House (45-60 mins); a guided bus tour of the Amish countryside where we saw farms, horses and buggies (90 mins); and a self-guided tour of the museum/farm with equipment, educational information and farm animals (take as long as you like, we spent a good hour exploring). Tour cost was $27.50 each and well worth it in our opinion. The guides were educated on the Amish way of life, respectful, very informative, engaged and happily answered our many questions.
