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.

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. 
Title: Re: Promised Land State Park - Summer 2017
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.

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!

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.

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 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.

label your kayak AND your paddle with your personal information to avoid confusion

Good call on labeling everything....kayak, paddle, pfd, etc.  I will bring my 30 foot tow chain to lay on the ground or attach to a tree.  Then everyone who wants to lock their kayak up they can lock them up individually so there isn't just 1 key.

We can bring a couple bottles each of ketchup, mustard and relish (this way there isn't a backup waiting for a condiment)

 Rafting trip alert.*** Anyone that is going on the rafting trip must print a copy of this liability form and fill it out and bring it with them we will collect them the night before  so we can simply present it to launders and and not have to be delayed in getting on the river. If you don't have access to a printer please see me when you get up there. I will bring extra printed copies so you can fill it out ahead of time. each person going in the raft must have one, children included (ADULTS WILL SIGN FOR CHILDREN)

Also you can bring a small cooler I recommend soft style so your not trying to row around a hard cooler  on the river for refreshments (no glass bottles of any kind the rangers will be all over you) . But if you bring plastic and cans you can probably partake in some spirits on the down low . We have never been hassled for having a few beers indiscreetly on the river and of course not being intoxicated. The previous statement is just my personal opinion and in no way reflects or is  endorsed by Joe the Mayor or canvascampers.com
Just keep in mind that you will be on the Delaware river and  it is patrolled by both the NYS and PA state parks and environmental police.

I will try to remember to bring a pair of binoculars I  will be happy to pass around from raft to raft for those of you who want to get a close up of a bald eagle last year we saw 3 and some babies this section of the river runs right through the eagle capital of New York state.

One last thing. I highly recommend that you wear an old pair of sneakers in the river some of the rocks are sharp or pointy if your going to touch bottom, water shoes work well also but i like the ankle protection from sneakers. The bottom of the river no matter where you are is extremely slippery from the algae the grows on the rocks please tell your kids as well be very careful walking in the river very easy to slip and fall

There was talk about watching Sharknado.  I'm all for that but someone needs to admit they own the movie and bring it.  Sorry, I own my share of dumb movies but that isn't one of them.  Any other suggestions for movies to bring that people own?  We have to keep in mind the audience, I'll have 2 7yo with me.

Pirates of the Caribbean
Harry Potter
Spaceballs
Pulp Fiction

Mike (Sam and Billie's parents) and I will bring salad and watermelon. Maybe more if I can get my act together. We arrive Wednesday morning (if no one has our site) and are in Site 100. Does anyone play cards?  Any bridge players?  Board game fans?  We are really excited about this trip!!!

Does anyone want a smallish three drawer storage thing. We used it for years but not so much anymore. I'm going to throw it out after this trip so thought I'd see if anyone here could use it.

I was on 116 with my 1206 Jayco SHW gizmos, and Sirius boombox.   

  At&t worked fine in camper but not outside.  My truck's 7 pin plug went south and we showed up at 11 pm on Friday.  Backed her in with the help from my girlfriend.   We took it easy all weekend.  Next week its lake Wallenpaupack Friday to Wednesday 2017 Boats and Brats Fest.
.   I got home at 4 and spent 3 hours prepping and packing up my boat.  Pup fridge on, portapottie not  dumped and almost forgot my Thule ratchet rope thingies.   All in all good time.   Slept till 11 am today and left at 3 pm.

Going to fix the 7 pin and more prepping for next trip.
