    Hang sites near Lancaster, PA (year round)?

    Any suggestions on places to go for a quick one or two-night camping trip that are hammock friendly, open year round and near Lancaster, PA? Just got my WBBB DL 1.7 XLC and Superfly and am itching to break it in! Thanks!

    The AT offers options beyond the 501 shelter.

    The Horse Shoe Trail has some great scenery in your area. I need to get back and hike it again.

    There are numerous trails in the area.

    Thanks everyone for the replies! I ended up at Susquehannock SP for an afternoon catnap dayhike today, and have checked out your other suggestions. Very much appreciated!

    You can hang on the southern part of the Conestoga trail. The Horseshoe trail is ok at spots but you are stealth camping and always in someone's back yard.
    AT is where I go for a 2 day trip. Love Swatara Gap

    You might want to check out Tucquan Park Family Campground. Not to far from the Susquehanna river. I think they are open all year.
    Good luck
