We are headed to RB Winter State Park in PA for Memorial Day weekend 2015.  I know some people do not like to camp on holidays, but it's nice to get out and we take advantage of our long weekends when we can.  http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/st...../index.htm  Have heard lots of good things about this park from others.  There are some sites with electric and some not.  There is Hiking, Biking, Fishing, and Swimming.  The state park has a spring fed lake and a stream running down one side of the campground (though not sure if stream is accessible.    Penns Cave is 45min away,http://www.pennscave.com/  There are local wineries.  Clyde Peelings Reptile land is 30 min away.http://reptiland.com/  And a host of other things http://www.visitcentralpa.org/.....8;cIds=107

So far 4 of us have reservations there for the weekend,
THingette 1  site  8
THingette 1's sister  Site 11
Going there again (our parents)  Site 15
Chief Bowes  Site 17

anyone else care to join us? 

Thought we could do Knoebel's one day too, if we don't get there before that ( and I never know with my schedule).  We thought about just reserving at Knoebel's, but they don't start reservations till mid Feb and there is no guarantee there will be any open spaces, so we reserved at the state park, so we'd have a guaranteed reservation somewhere for sure.

The four of us have canceled ressies.  The sites an the campground itself are ok for pop ups and smaller units.  But some sites are tougher to back in than others , and the road in is not all that wide for bigger campers.  My Dad will have a fit with this one, so we have found other accommodations at Shady Brook campground.  The owner is also the regional director of PA Campground Assoc.  So, there are now 4 open electric sites at RB Winter, if anyone is looking .

Shady Brook CG, Beavertown PA was nice.  There are a lot of seasonal sites. But they had a fair amount of overnite sites as well.  The seasonal campers are friendly and welcoming.  The owner is there all the time and was Very Helpful.  He bought campground 5-6 yrs ago and has made improvements every year.  The bathhouse is brand new.  The new picnic tables are being built by the local high school. He is leveling and putting new stone on all the overnight sites.  The driveway is being improved for drainage .  The electric and water hook ups have been completely replaced and can accommodate 50, 30, and 20 amps.  There is LOTS of water pressure- be sure to bring your pressure regulator, you will need it.  Lots of trees.  The owner, Dave, is also the regional director for the  PA Campground Association.  The pool was clean and refreshing , it has nice steps to get in and out on. There are activities and things to do every Saturday. The owner is working hard to make this a real nice place.  The previous owner hadn't done much in a lot of years.  Most of the seasonal sites are newer campers.  All are well kept an clean.  Empty non leased, seasonal sites will be available to overnight guests as well.  The campground is 15 min from Selingsgrove, PA.  Dave went out of his way to accommodate our family of three campers on a holiday weekend with a two weeks notice.  We would return here. http://www.shadybrookcg.com
