I'm sure Rich does. jester The Allentown RV show is this weekend then we are getting together after that to do some planning. Gonna do a long trip in June, possibly to the new campground in Delaware. I made a list of about 30 campgrounds within about 2 drive hours that we haven't been to yet.

lmao I did see that the Pittsburgh RV show starts this weekend. I know I am hoping to make it there to see if there is anywhere else that I would like to try. One thing that I have noticed is that there is more campground booking up a lot earlier this year than in the past. There must be more and more people out there that have started to do more camping.

My list is now up to 53. All within about a 2 hour drive, with the exception of 3. I never realized there were that many campgrounds that close. I did some research on each one I found. We are getting together this weekend to plan some trips. Unfortunately, Buttonwood is booked for the extended weekend we wanted.

mikhen I have actually noticed that there is a lot of places that is booked already for a majority of the holiday weekends this year. I know of some that is already booked for Labor day weekend. I think there are a lot more people camping now so it seems to be getting harder to get some places to book.

We have 2 planned so far, but only one reserved. The big trip this year will be Florida for 2 weeks.

Grizzly...try this to find more campgrounds...go to Google Maps, I like the earth view, search for "campgrounds in pa". Then zoom in on the area you want to search. I couldn't believe how many I found close to home that I never knew existed.

Well first trip in finally. Was not a bad weekend until we tried to leave and the fifth wheel would not lock automatically like it should. I can say not a very fun trip home thank goodness that it was only about 20 miles to home.

It has got real quiet here. I hope that is a sign that everyone is out camping and enjoying their summer.

We only made 2 trips so far, but 1 was a 5 nighter. We have trips booked for just about the rest of the year. At least 3 nights each.

I am with both of you it is hard to believe that kids will be heading back to school this month. And we only have a couple more trips planned for the rest of this year.

Re: 2016 Camping Season - 08/27/16 07:10 PM

WOW! Almost Labor Day already. We have only 1 trip booked yet, that we may have to cancel. We want to book another trip, but things are up in the air right now. So, naturally, we are starting to talk about next year. The brand new Massey's Landing in Delaware is high on the list for our long trip. And we are getting into kayaking, so Buttonwood is excellent, Otter Lake will be great, and we are looking or others. Still don't know where this year went. dunno

mikhen if you are getting into Kayaking I would suggest Rivers Edge (Uniontown KOA) it along the river as well, we take the truck to Connellsville with the Kayaks up the river kayak back and then one would ride the bike back to the truck on the bike trail. Another place would be cooks forest area. We always end up at Deer Meadows up there and take the Kayaks to the river there it is about 3 miles from the campground so you would need two vehicles. That is the only downfall for there, but if you get a group of people it turns out to be a blast. We end up with around 12 people some in Kayaks and some in tubes. I know we would like to make a trip to Buttonwood to give it a try as well with seeing it is along the river.

Only 1 trip left for us. We were hoping to squeeze an October weekend in, but with a busy schedule and Halloween weekends at campgrounds being popular, it doesn't look like it's going to happen. Let's hope winter goes as fast as summer did.
