It looks like 6/16/17 will be Nathan's last day of school.  I'm thinking his summer camp might not start until the following week so either DW or I or both will have to take that week off.  I'll try to talk Lori into going for an extended trip.  She did like the weekend we did there last year.

I had 135 last year. It should, just put it on Joe's site if not. It won't let me post pics from my phone. When I get home I'll put the two up I have.

Matt, if my memory serves me right, I think it is a large sunny site. I think you should be fine. I will be there this Thurs, so I will check it out again.
Title: Re: Promised Land State Park - Summer 2017
Post by: Lone Lock on August 02, 2016, 09:06:16 AM
Awesome!!! Thank you!!! 

Trying to decide if my Sister would need to book her own tent site without electric behind me or if she can just pitch a tent on my site.

Just back from several days camping at Pickerel Point. Matt, I did take pictures of 135, but your sister's tent should be fine. There is a nice size grassy area behind the gravel pad, before the bushes on the shoreline. Also, there is a large grassy area between yours & Joe's in case you want to infringe on some of that space ;)

If there is anyone camping the weekend prior, my family and I will be walking the Pocono FoxTrot 5K Walk/Fun Run in Milford, PA for awareness to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.  My dad lives with Parkinson.

All are welcome.
You can not register yet but I have confirmed the date of Saturday June 17th with the organizers.

I booked site 116  no pets.  2 adults  screw the kids... only kidding could be one 11 year old and my girls 4 and 8.   

Dragging a boat or canoe or none of the above depending on kids that weekend. Too early to plan.   Full sun spot on top of the open area.  The pugs will be deployed and will make the best of it.

I just talked to Lori last night.  She is interested in coming to this one for the week to be our family vacation.  We may even bring one of Nathan's buddies from school....share covering vacations until summer camp starts.

Post by: JoeCamper on December 29, 2016, 07:18:03 PM
If interested, we will be going white water rafting on this trip.  Tentatively on Thursday, weather permitting
Title: Re: Promised Land State Park - Summer 2017
Post by: Pathwacker on January 10, 2017, 09:15:07 PM
I'm game for Friday rafting.  Lehigh river.  Not the Delaware.   Bought another canoe. Bell Chestnut Prospector 16ft in royalex.   Hickory run is a better raft and canoe trip.    Pocono pony from monroe county transit runs the free shuttle (sat or Sunday)  for Delaware river canoe/kayak/tube/whatever.  Park at park and ride, load county trailer, climb onto bus, 4 hour paddle.   Back to park and ride cruise 40 mins back to Promised Land. 
Title: Re: Promised Land State Park - Summer 2017

We talked ourselves into going for a whole week Sun-Sun 6/18-25.  This is a late booking, so we're out in Siberia - site # 173.  Bringing both kids.  One kid may bring a friend.  We're looking forward to fun in the Poconos!
Title: Re: Promised Land State Park - Summer 2017
Post by: JoeCamper on February 10, 2017, 06:46:13 PM
Glad you can join us, bring bikes for the kids if possible? They can ride to the beach.
There is a path around the lake, one around conversation island (dirt) and the road of the campground.

We have kayaks you can borrow, if you are interested.

Post by: Pathwacker on March 07, 2017, 10:02:33 AM
Has anyone thought about running the Delaware River that weekend.   The pocono pony buses run Saturdays and Sunday.   7am bus ride.   12pm take out at Smithfield or even later.    I usually reserve the final trip day overnight to not get pressured during packing up     

This weekend in June I have my young girls and would not run the river with them.     12vt boat on flat water lol.

We are staying till Monday as well, unless it calls for rain on Monday. Then will pack up dry and leave late on Sunday.

We are in for rafting . I have been rafting with launders for the last 30 plus years once a year when we do our family camping trip at skinner's falls. It really is a lot of fun  you can bring a cooler with some frosty beverages and a sandwich and eat on some big rocks in the middle of the trip. The Delaware is very scenic especially from the waters view, One of the highlights is Narrowsburg is the eagle capitol of the world. Many trips on the river I have seen several bald eagles flying overhead and even baby bald eagles hunting for food along the Delaware river banks . We usually do the trip from skinner's to narrows burg and its about 6.5 miles if the current is strong from the rains it takes about 3 hours with stops along the way for splash and water fights or for a nice cool dip in the Delaware. They have a small country store snack bar at the end where you can get a frozen ice cream bar or beverage  for the free shuttle bus back up to  skinner's where our cars will be parked.

Against my better judgement, it looks like we might be making sushi and showing the sharknado movie on the projector one evening. We will get a count of who is interested as we get closer.
