Tobywanna, Pennsylvania and King George, New York

Wednesday turned out to be a real thriller for us -- really hot as we drove from Virginia into Maryland and then Pennsylvania. We set our overnight sites on a Pennsylvania State Park at Locust Lake, making a reservation for the only pull-through available for one night. Pennsylvania does not run water or sewers in their state parks but they did alert us to that fact and they provided a fast running spigot for filling our tank, which we did promptly upon arrival around around 4 p.m. Driving to our site, we found the campground to be very crowded and dusty and decided to leave for a more favorable place. The very nice attendant, Debbie, refunded our prepaid camp fee of $24.

We drove on to another campground located in White Haven, Pennsylvania but it seemed to be deserted except for a very few, very old campers and we opted to escape without further pursuit.

The next stop would be in the Pocono foothills in the town of Tobywanna, Pennsylvania where we found the Hemlock Campground to be a perfect fit. Even the management was good. The price was right to for site #50. $21.50 for 30amp with water and sewer.

We got up Thursday morning and made a quick departure, leav ing Tobywanna at 9:45 a.m. with 9,550 ODO.
