Camper Shares Story about Camping in Pennsylvania

Bonnie M from Carnegie, PA was the January winner. Here’s her story: 

My 2 girls and I go camping every year at the Jellystone Park in Mill Run, PA for at least a week. Over the years, we have gone up at different times of the summer to try each themed weekend. Halloween and Mardi Gras weekends are family favorites. Everyone makes us feel right at home! My girls enjoy spending time with Ali, Anne, Rob, Megan, Carl, and so many other great workers. We like having something to do all day long, from “Hey! rides” to ceramics, fire truck rides to scavenger hunts. Or if we just want to hang out by the pool and relax, we can do that, too. The facilities are always clean and in working order. We have never had any problems at the park. We recommend it to our family and friends, as well as I post it on my blogs. Last year we even had some family friends come up and visit while we were there! They enjoyed their time so much, they booked their own small vacation there!

Attached you will find some pictures from two years of camping. There were so many to choose from, it was hard to narrow it down! It was great seeing how much fun the kids had again, and we can’t wait to book our vacation for this summer. The girls look forward to it every year, and the campground never lets them down!

Thanks so much for the wonderful memories!
