    Hi we're super excited about coming out in a few weeks! I had a quick question about alcohol though. We stayed in a PA state park and they were very strict about not allowing it. Is this camp site the same way or are they more lax?

    I couldn't find anything specific on their website, but I'm pretty sure there's no prohibition on alcohol since it's a private campground. I generally use a certain amount of discretion at campgrounds and I haven't had any problems, even at state parks here in PA.

    this is a private family oreinted campground, so yes alcohol is permitted, granted it is done within reason , a few cold beverages around the firepit shouldn't be a problem, as long as it is confined to the camp site, wouldn't walk around the entire campground with open containers thou. I was working in the Clearfeild PA area yesterday, was going to stop at the campground on my way back just to check with them about any open sites that may still be available, for those who may be interested in last minute attending, but got back rather late, so it didn't happen, may try calling them tomorrow , just to keep in the loop. that being said, we still are at 5 members confirmed, and 1 tenitive, (friend at work) hopefully run into him this week to see what his status is with his retro project on his scotty. we may still have time for additional portal members to join us, as the campground does usually fill, however they have been more than willing to accomadate us, up to this point.

    OK thanks for the clarification. We're always discrete with drinking (we have 2 kids and don't want to set a bad example), just wanted to know the rules.

    There's just something about a beer and cigar around a crackling fire :)

    I agree, now I'm going to have to remember to load up my travel humidor. Nothing like camping with a fellow BOTL!

    Looking forward to it, John. We'll be arriving on Thursday and staying til Sunday.

    If anyone is interested, after the rally we're heading over to Pymatuning in the Jamestown campground, loop 600. Still plenty of sites available over there if anyone wants to go!

    We're looking forward to the weekend as well. Here's hoping for nice weather. Since Steve didn't make this official with the charts and what not, what site is everyone at?

    Site 59
    Arriving Thursday.

    My confirmation doesn't specify which site number we're at. They also haven't charged us for the balance due. We've called them twice now, and we're told we're confirmed and in good standing so I'm not to sure. But we'll get it taken care of.
