    Several easy hikes in and around the park to enjoy the park. Seems like they offer bike & kayak rentals but it may be off season. Parks should consider staying open so people can enjoy the fall colors through October.

    Sue and Colton were very friendly and welcoming! The wine was amazing - my husband and I started out with one wine tasting and decided on sharing a bottle of Vidal Blanc. We also enjoyed a cheese and meat tray. The atmosphere was fantastic looking over the snow covered fields in Southwestern Pennsylvania. Colton informed us of all the wonderful events they have coming up. The winery is not far from Hidden Valley and Seven Springs Ski resorts. We passed Shanksville - I believe it is 20 minutes from the winery. Thank you again, Sue and Colton for a wonderful snowy afternoon.

    What an interesting stop!
    My husband works in the mining business and remembered when this rescue occurred, so we decided to visit. We were on a time constraint, but when I called to make a reservation Vicki worked with us and was more than willing to open early for us so that we could get the full experience! She was so kind and you can tell she LOVES her job.

    It was a very personable tour. Lots of details (sometimes a bit too graphic for us (about their feelings and symptoms from being in the dark for so long) having children with us that were 9, 7 and 5..... but given her love for her job, we were able to overlook that.
    Hands on as the kids were able to put on a mining cap and hold the bird box. Outside kids could crawl through an external "shaft" to experience the darkness and limited space available.

    The discussion was faith based, which I appreciated! I cannot even begin to image the prayers that were lifted up the the Lord during those nine days. They were for sure answered!

    However, I also hadn't realized that this happened just ten months after 9/11. So this 15 mile radius of an area in rural PA had quite the tragedy and national attention in such a little amount of time.

    Other fun fact, Disney bought the rights to the rescue and created a movie that you can watch on YouTube. My husband was excited to go home and watch it.
    Overall, a must stop if you have any interest in mining, rescues, or local history.

    I recommend visiting!

    This was our first camping trip with our new camper. We stayed at site #20, full hookup. The campground is small but we enjoyed ourselves. It's a short walk to the lake and the station to buy firewood. The sites are close together, we had to ask our neighbors to move their truck so we wouldn't get ashes on it from our fire since it was only about 5 feet away. The highway is definitely noisy, we kept our a/c on all night to block the noise so we could sleep. We used our own bathroom in the TT, so don't have a review for the bathroom available. Also, never met or even saw the camp host which we thought was strange. Overall, it was a great trip. If you're booking full hookup, we'd recommend site #21, it has the most privacy of the full hook up sites because it's at the top of the row of the full hook ups. Also, site #16 is the only site that had a really cool pavilion next to it which is where the picnic table is. However, many of the sites have a direct eye shot of site #16 so you win some you lose some with that site I guess. Overall, we had a great time and would stay here again.

    Lovely area with an historical covered bridge and buildings from the 1700's - farm house and a cider mill flanked by apple trees.

    While coming back a road trip, my husband and I stopped at the highest point in Pennsylvania at 3,213'. On the way there, you drive through nice, scenic Amish country. The highest point features a tower that you can climb up. It was a sunny, clear day and we were able to view a lot of the surrounding area.
