Location

Access Road Conditions: Two gravel driveways. See photos. The “lower” one is a little steep but should not pose a problem except possibly for those pulling a trailer with a vehicle that is not four wheel drive. The “upper” one is nearly level but crosses a culvert that makes the entrance about 23 feet wide. The 35 foot rig limit is to avoid trouble entering this driveway. We have had a rig get stuck. Our driveways form a loop with the primary parking area being a spur off the loop. Depending on which driveway you enter, how much power cord you have, and your preference for backing and door orientation, you can back or pull into the parking spur. The electrical outlet is at the far end of the parking area. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Next to rig.

    Very kind and helpful host who communicated well. He informed us that his driveway was steep and he didn’t think we would make it uphill with our toad, but told us we could try. He was correct. We could not make it and decided to stay elsewhere rather than unhitch. That said, the host was wonderful (and so forgiving when we made a rut in his gravel drive) and I’d recommend staying if you have a shorter rig. If your setup is at all prone to scraping you won’t make it up the first driveway, but if you’re smaller you might make the turn into the second drive.

    Nice couple and property, power at the driveway which made it easier for me. 20 minutes to Penn State and very quiet area.

    Communication was great, they even helped me back in my camper next to their power box. Nice and quiet spot in the country only 20 minutes to Penn State campus. Will stay again if I’m in the area.

    We had a nice stay . The host was very kind and helpful. Our children love their dogs and we appreciate their help backing in our trailer. We wish we had more time to hang out. Thank you so much love the Duffleys🙏❤️
