Our property here in Pa. is Pa. level as in - gently sloped. we have water, 15a. electric [may be able to upgrade to 30 amp eventually], and a dump station/area.. room for any size unit; but you have to watch turning off the road onto our driveway.. OK, all for now.. Larry

talkin' about 'dry' camping; Fla. Flywheelers [Fla.], National Steam, Gas and Horse show [near Brownsville, Pa.], New Centerville [Pa] Jubilee and the Pioneer Park Days [Fla.]

Friendly Folks

We had a great stay here. It was very enjoyable talking with our hosts. Backing in their driveway was no issue at all. It's very convenient to Pittsburgh where we spent a day. We recommend staying here if you are in the area.

Little Bit camping

My wife and I had a great stay here on our way to buy dinnerware in Newell WV. The host cleared his level driveway for us which was very privately set back from the road. We were also offered 30amp hookup, water and even a tank dump. We felt very welcomed and will hopefully return.

He tried, but he couldn’t do it!

Made it to our hosts location without incident, but between the narrow road, the mailbox and power pole locations, and my inexperience, I was unable to back into the driveway. All I managed to do was put ruts in the lawn and disrupt traffic for 20 minutes or so.

Our host was apologetic, but as I told him, he had nothing to be sorry about. It was me who couldn’t maneuver properly and tore up his yard. He was extremely understanding and told me it wasn’t a problem. He was prepared with a load of topsoil.

I’m sure our stay would have been pleasant, but we ended up getting permission from a nearby restaurant to park in their lot. They were only doing pick up orders, due to Covid19, so that worked out for us.
