    Welcome aboard cheifbowes! (Possibly Maybe [;)]) Hope you can make it! We could do something special for the little one's birthday if she isn't too shy for that sorta thing! My two kids will be 9 and 7 at the time of this rally, so she will have playmates.

    I am hoping the new dates suite Erietech, civilwardude2002, and redfragglerocker can still make it!

    Chiefbowes, do you mean why HASN'T it been moved?

    This thread started here on Planning A Rally, and hasn't been moved over to the 2010 PUP Rallies yet.

    I think we need a few more confirmed reservations before they will move us over to the "official" rally area.

    Right now there are only two with Dave's and mine. The magic number for this to be a rally and not just "camping with friends" is 6 I think.

    If you, civilwardude, redfragglerocker, and erietech all decide to attend and make reservations we will have enough. My fingers are crossed!

    Hey everyone. Sorry it took so long for me to join this thread, been very busy lately. I think this park looks great! I will put myself down as a definite maybe for now (have to check with the wife!).

    We attend a lot of car shows over the summer and there may be a scheduling conflict with one of the shows.

    Does anyone have any info on the lake? How deep? Gas or electric motor only? I would love to bring my boat if we attend.

    WELCOME ABOARD NATEANDEMREED!!!!!!!

    It is bound to be a great time!

    The 20 acre lake is electric motor only. No exact depth is listed. How big of a boat do you have?

    16ft bass boat. I will do some research and see if its worth the hassle of taking it there or not?

    That lake certainly seems like it's bigger than 20 acres to me. I think that is a misprint. Take a look -

    By comparison - Chapman State Park's lake is listed at 68 acres and it is every bit as big as Parker Dam.

    I live on 2.5 acres and Parker Lake certainly seems like it's more than 8 times bigger than my yard !!

    Beginning to think that I am not suppose to attend a rally. [:(] Everytime I think attendance at one is possible - something comes up. This rally is no different. My daughter just announced her engagement and guess what the tentative wedding date is? That's right - June 26, 2010 [:O]- meaning that I will be busy for both weekends. Wonder if she would consider getting married at a campground?

    I will get to a rally at some point!!!!! [LOL]

    I like the idea, it's the closest rally for me I will be looking into more details as the date comes closer. But, not sure if it is going to happen, my tv, 40 year old pup, and wallet might not like the 2.5 hour ride and might stop me, I've never traveled with it much yet but i like the idea and will try to attend.

    This would be a good one for you, Cory. Jump on I80 east to exit 111. Then only about 8 miles north to Parker Dam. You'd be there before you know it !!

    Hey Dave & Shannon,

    Put Moria & me down for site 108. We can't wait to see you both there.

    Is it Summer 2010 yet?...... [8D] [;)]

    That's great, Eric. We're looking forward to seeing you, Moria, Peanut & Cashew again.

    C'mon folks !! It's never too early to make that reservation. June will be here before we know it.

    I just checked the site calendar at the PA DCNR website and only 5 sites are presently reserved for this weekend. Three of those are mine, Shannon's and Eric's - so very few people are planning ahead. C'mon everyone - join us. It's never too early to make your reservation. It'll be fun !!

    If you'd like a peek at the park, my photos at Webshots can be seen at -

    Some of these are pre-digital photography, so they're not the greatest. But, I'm sure you'll see that it's a great park with beautiful surroundings.
