Did you know that of all the Penna state parks, only one has full hookups according to a department of DCNR we met at the RV show in Hershey? She said there were two, however, she was not completely sure about one of them. As it turns out according to the web site, only one has water,sewer and electric hookups and that is Promised Land State Park in northeastern PA. Little Buffalo state park in Newport has water and electric hookups, but according to the site, no sewer hookups. All state parks have dump stations. Just thought I would share this info

Great info. If I'm not mistaking, there are a few with water and electric. I wasn't aware of the full hookup's at Promised Land. Me thinks that is going on our list for next year.


Really need to get my blogs back up to date

Pickerel Point is the camping area in Promised Land with the full hookups. We had a reservation there this year, but we weren't able to keep it because of equipment problems.

Since Pickerel Point only has one road, and that roads leads to a beach, there was a fair amount of traffic coming and going. The other downside is that the full hook up sites aren't the most private. On the plus side, at least as far as I can recall, all of the full hook up sites didn't have anything between you and the lake (maybe 50 to 100 feet of woods). I hope to get there and try my hand at fishing as I've heard the fishing is pretty decent there. There is also a LOT of wildlife in the area, and there is a good chance of seeing bear and Bald Eagles.

I can't spell well enough or type fast enough to tell one of her stories but we did end up crawling around bear dens and counting cubs with gary alt,the state bear biologist.
