Camping with a huge group of people was fun! There were probably 40 of us. The whole Kittatinny Canoe camp site has a nice set up, some sites are right by the water and some are closer to the roads.
The one thing I didn't really like was the location of the bathroom/shower, which were right behide the check-in lodge. We had to cross the street to get there. But there were portable restrooms throughout the site.
Since we got that late the 1st day, we just set up our tents, ate, hung out by the fire for a couple of hours then we were finally off to sleep at 2 in the morning.
The next day, all of us were up really early. We cooked breakfast and ate. Then we were off to the river probably by 10 something. We drove down the raod for less than 10 mins and the employees got us all set up in no time.They had canoes, kayaks, and rafts. So all of us got our boats and off to the river!
The view was truely amazing and it was really fun when you were with a huge group of people. Some even fell into the water! Thank god! I didn't :P
It was a beautiful weekend. Everything was just prefect.
And as for my first time camping trip goes, I couldn't ask for more.
Place was nice, clean. Employees were friendly and nice.
You should really look into the Kittatinny Canoe :)
