Gettysburg / Re: Spring Historical Gettysburg Rally - May 2017

We will be bringing back the Beer, Wine and a little Moon Shine event at this rally.  On Saturday evening at 8pm, after the normal 6pm potluck dinner, we will be having an adult beverage tasting around the campfire.  If you are interested in joining please bring some of your favorite, funny or local beverages to share.  We will provide sampling cups, ice trays, cork screws, etc.

For anyone not touring the battlefield, we will have card games, mini golf, corn hole and ladder golf around at the campground.

This is a family event with camping, the campfires and potluck dinner so don't hesitate to camp with kids.

There are still a few electric sites available and this is a great location for canoeing, kayaking, swimming, etc and they have boat rentals.

Boat Rental: The boating concession, located in the Quaker Race Day Use Area, offers rentals by the hour, day, overnight, or for the week. Types of boats include canoes, one and two-person kayaks, paddleboats, and row boats. Electric motors are available for rent. Weather permitting, the concession is open daily from Memorial Day to Labor Day and weekends beginning mid-May and after Labor Day to mid-October.

Several months prior to this camping trip, we will be planning a group winery tour with a bus if there is enough interest.

We will also be planing a group hiking the beautiful Gorge where the glen's stream descends 400 feet past 200-foot cliffs, generating 19 waterfalls along its course. The gorge path winds over and under waterfalls and through the spray of Cavern Cascade. Rim trails overlook the gorge.

On Friday, June 23 a group of us camping are planning a white water rafting trip.

Lander's River Trips
5961 NY-97
Narrowsburg, NY 12764
40-45 minutes from the campground

Weekday Adult: $40, Weekday Child: $20,

Rafts hold 4-6 people, making them perfect for large groups. With minimal skill involved, rafting is perfect for those with children or first time river goers. Average trip lengths vary from 2.5 hours to 5 hours depending on length of trip.


River Map:

Please post if you are interested, we will need a final count and payment 30 days prior.

Looking for something to do?

Black Walnut Winery and Waltz Vineyard are both within 20 minutes away.

Famous All you can eat Smorgasbords - Shady Maple and Miller's are very close.  I think they are closed on Sundays (4 miles) (10 miles)

American Music Theatre with a Beatles Tribute and the Charles Daniels Band this weekend

Strasburg Railroad and Museum

Amish life and shopping in Bird in Hand, Blue Ball, Intercourse and more

Main menu now has all the rallies listed for this year. Thanks Phil for fixing me.

You can see them on the main menu.

You can see them on this board.

Our you can see a list with links here.

The campground is fine with using a site to gather.  It is there opening weekend and they will be very slow.

FYI - the campground does not currently have ice but it is available within 3 miles of the campground.
Chester County Beverage, 5802 W Lincoln Hwy, Parkesburg, PA 19365 sells ice, 8 lbs for $1.75, 40 lbs for $5.50

There is firewood .9 mile from the campground, 1/2 cord for $100.  $12-$15 per site

Wonder what the campground looks like right now?  It's beautiful!
See everyone tomorrow evening.

Matt, your truck only looks half full.  Is that all the Toyotas can handle?

The campground is planning to hopefully clean up sites as needed on Wednesday, they are expecting that most the snow is gone before then with the 50 degree temperatures today and tomorrow.

General Campfire Discussion / Worse SPUT Ever

I don't know if anyone else has done it but today I closed up everything in the camper and when I went to hook up the truck.... NO KEYS.  Checked my clothes and everything in the tow vehicle.  I raised the roof half way... didn't find them.  :anono1: Raised the roof the remaining way... nothing.  :sotired: Pulled out one bunk end and then the slide out... still nothing.  :-[

I found them, not in the camper or the tow vehicle... but I found them.  :banghead:
