Shhhh! Don't give away the secret!

We like Raystown so much, we go at least a half dozen times a year. So far, 3 times with the 4th time the 4th of July weekend.

We normally do the state parks/federal lands. The senior pass gives us a 50% discount at Raystown Lake ($54 total for 3 nights!) and PA allows a senior discount at their state parks even if you are non-residents. Have done some private CG's and KOA's over the years.... prefer what we do now.
DW HAS to have electricity. Otherwise, I'll fill the FW tank going in, dump everything going out. Looking forward to the days when she retires so we can make MUCH longer trips. Boondocking didn't used to be an option with my wife. Might change a bit since we now have an on-board generator.

I forgot everyone was looking😱 we have been there twice. We need to find another site the scenery was good first time but the playground across the road can make a peaceful weekend not!

Been camping at reclaimed strip mines this season. Free sites and free firewood. Beautiful lakes and trails- the Buckeye Trail runs through the area.

Either place we camp we have a great time because we are away from work and the everyday humdrum of life.
I am sure there are many many great State parks,,,
But if you ever find your way to Michigan you should try to get into Platte River Nat. Park,,, near Sleeping Bear Dunes !!!

Wolverine, if we ever get up that way we sure will. We are not able to go far or much at the moment due to we both work. Eventually our plan of course is to retire and hit all the states we can.

DW and I are primarily Michigan State Parks. She wants to do some boondocking, I'm apprehensive. Lol
