Yurt So Good at Circle M!

Circle M RV & Camping Resort
Circle M RV & Camping Resort

Last summer, our Yurt Village at the Circle M RV Campground opened! There’s so much to love about this Pennsylvania Amish country gem and staying in a yurt will make your experience totally unique!

What’s a yurt, you say? A yurt is a dome-shaped, circular tent-style structure that has been used for thousands of years as a shelter for nomadic peoples. Yurts have become a popular and fun way for modern vacationers to immerse themselves in the outdoors while maintaining the comforts of home.

Though our yurts boast a shape that harkens back to an ancient time, a time when nomads needed a portable and durable shelter, the yurts at Circle M will include all of the modern amenities that you’d expect – a functional kitchenette, space to sleep up to six people, and private restrooms with showers.

Gather ’round!

Circle M RV Campground is located in Lancaster County in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country. This western-style campground has plenty of amenities – from swimming pools to shuffleboard, weekend activities to barbecues and picnics – it’s easy to make Circle M your next destination for relaxation! Plus, Circle M RV Campground is close to activities in Lancaster County including Amish attractions, or nearby shopping and dining.

Themed Cabins at Natchez Trace RV Campground

Nashville, TN
Nashville, TN

Tennessee is a special place to visit almost any time of the year. Tennessee is famous for its barbecued comfort food that sticks to your ribs like an Elvis song can stick in your head; for its Great Smoky Mountains and endless opportunities for fishing and hunting; for Memphis and Nashville, two cities built on the blues and rock n’ roll; for Route 66, “the main street of America” that runs through Tennessee as roadtrippers traverse this land-locked state.

Immerse yourself in the charm, the culture, and the nature of the “Volunteer State” when you stay in a themed cabin at Natchez Trace RV Campground in Hohenwald, TN. These cabins are situated near the water among the trees on this beautiful forested property and each one celebrates a different facet of the Tennessee experience. There’s a cabin for the fishermen, the hunters, the Music City lovers; Tennessee Volunteer fans and Crimson Tide rivals; and for those who love the road, an ode to Route 66. Each cabin is ready for you to move right in- linens, flat screen TVs, fully stocked kitchens, coffee makers, and much more to make your stay feel just like home. At Natchez Trace, you’ll disconnect and relax – there’s no wifi connection here, but you’ll be too busy taking in the beauty of Tennessee and sleeping soundly in your cabin to notice anyway. No matter which cabin you choose, you’ll have the best view of the Tennessee sunset from your screened in porch.

Frank Lloyd Wright Heritage Trail

One of the state’s most famous Wisconsinites was Frank Lloyd Wright, often called “America’s greatest architect,” who designed a number of recognizable buildings around the country like the Guggenheim Museum in New York City. He was famous for his “prairie style” of architecture, which is characterized by open floor plans and low pitched roofs. Wright designed all kinds of buildings from churches to single family homes, museums, and a small number of government buildings. If you’re up for a unique experience to complement your vacation, take a self-guided tour along the Frank Lloyd Wright Heritage Trail. This trail stretches 200 miles beginning on the Illinois border on I-94 and takes visitors westward to a number of Wright’s famous structures and ends at his home and studio, “Taliesin,” in Spring Green, WI.
