Talking I'm a happy camper!!!!

I had previously mentioned that there is a campground that is very difficult to get into because people get a campsite and reserve it over and over every year.

That campground is Knoebel's Campground next to Knoebel's Amusement Park in PA.

I tried to reserve last year and was told that there wasn't one open site, even for the middle of the week, from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Well, this year I mailed my letter in after the first of the year, and asked to get a campsite if one of the "regulars" didn't renew this year.

Well, I just got the letter yesterday and we got a site!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For a weekend even!!!!!!!

I am so excited!

Good news! You cannot ask for a better way to start off the camping year. You camped here before, or will it be the first time? Must be a pretty good campground if its booked that often.

This will be my first time at this campground, but second year on the waiting list.

Here is a link:

Family Vacation

If you download the pdf map, I got a site on the "Rhode Island" loop. Close to the pool, close to the bath house, not too far from the camp store.

I guess good things come to people who wait!!!!

It is difficult to get a site for a couple reasons:

1. It is literally AT the amusement park. You park your car at your site and don't have to move it to get to and from the park.
2. They have a policy of letting campers hold the same campsite year after year, so they only way you get a campsite is if someone else who camps in the site doesn't renew it.


It is about 3 hours from home, so that makes me a little uneasy... but the kids are getting older so maybe we can venture out a little!

I didn't look at them all - but found it ironic that Rhode Island is larger than California, SC, NC, ...

VERY good point. NC only has a tiny little spot... that should have been Rhode Island huh? Did you notice the random DC sites in there? Like DC can't get it's own loop because it isn't a state!!!!
