Leaving my sister’s home, we decided to take the back roads to go thru Pennsylvania. As it turned out there were several flaws in this plan. First, we had forgotten just how bad some of the roads in PA really are. Secondly, we did not have a good state map and our GPS was fighting us at every turn about our choice of route. For awhile it felt like we were just going in concentric circles.
We passed over the Kinzua Point dam and pulled into the information center and overlook. It was a very nice spot, but it looked as thou the center had been closed for some time. Took some time to enjoy the view and then continued to our destination.
We drove thru several towns along the way and we finally came upon our first choice for an overnight stop in a rural area. Its resort label was quickly forgotten as we passed rows of derelict RV’s with many tarps covering the roofs. The owner escorted us to the best available site which was dirt/gravel and the hookups looked to be 50 years old. We quickly made an about face and started looking for another park.
We arrived at Adventure Bound RV Park in time for happy hour. This was a beautifully maintained full-service park with many seasonal rigs. They recently had very heavy rainstorms and there was evidence of that in our site. A camper stopped by to say that he had this site when he first came to the park and it completely flooded during the storm. It seems that our spot was the drain point for this section of sites. Luckily it did not rain during our one-night stay.
