Not from Pa but NE Ohio. I think we need a map so we can tell what area we are in I would think Ohio is midwest but who knows. We are about 25 miles from Pa in Madison. We have a 16'SD 2003 we bought used this spring. We have been to one mini ralley in the Adirondacks this spring and the North Shore of Superior this summer. We spent a weekend in Pa on the Sinnemahoning River also. Retired and we love the trailer. If we could here from others in this area we should plan a local mini ralley .

I'm from Western Pennsylvania, in Somerset County (think Exit 10 of the Pennsylvania Turnpike).

If you're looking for suggestions:

One of the nicest campgrounds around here is Prince Gallitzin State Park, near Patton in Cambria County. All sites are wooded; there's a large lake; you can rent pontoon boats; deer come and eat bread out of people's hands (not necessarily a good thing!). Fishing is great.

There are 437 sites, 85 with electricity...

Wherever, I'm probably game...

Rick,

Shawnee is quite nice, too. I tent camped there last fall and kayaked on the lake. We used to picnic there when I was a kid, way back in the 50s. Shawnee would make a good location for a Pennsylvania mini-rally. It's much easier to get to via the turnpike.

I got a '97 SD, 16ft, in April. I went on only two camping trips this summer, but I'm taking the Casita to Provincetown, MA, at the tip of Cape Cod, later on this month. I've had no problems with it, or with the tires. I sure hope I don't get a blow-out.

We are in Centre County, PA, and glad to hear the numbers of Casita owners in PA are growing! :P

I think we were the second PA folks to buy a Casita from Rice, and were the first from PA to join the Casita Club.

Though Bob is retired, I still work, :) so I don't get on the road as much as we WANT. But, judging from the posts, no matter how much you get out, it's not enough! :o

One of my favorite campgrounds is in western PA.

The Chuck & Lou Mobilehome Park and Campground on US 19 immediately north of Saegertown (north of Meadville).

Don'tlet the name and the entrance fool you. You go through the Mobilehome Park and down on the French Lick river are the prettiest campsites you will ever find with full hookups and reasonably priced.

If you are Good Sam members don't miss the state rallys. You meet the nicest people there. They usually have one at Centre Square on the 4th. of July weekend.

Hi, folks. Just noticed this little addendum down here in the site. I'm in southcentral PA, and looking forward to a chance to explore some of the good spots in our beautiful commonwealth. Sorry to admit that out of 125+ nights spent in my 0317SD in 2003, not a single one was in PA! I hope to have some time in-state when the weather turns better. It WILL turn better, won't it? Please say it will!

Hi, Just bought a 2000 17' Spirit DX in Souderton, Pa. Camped once so far. We live in Carlisle, Pa and know of another Carlisle couple who also have a Casita. They introduced us to the Casita. Hope to have some enjoyable times with it. We don't see many Casita's in the Pa region. Lucky to have found this used one over the internet. It was in great shape. Enjoy!!!!

Hi Everyone.....
Just purchased a used 94'Casita SD 16' in excellent condition from a real nice gentleman in Michigan. We Live in PA now but recently moved here from Arizona ( I know "It's a dry heat") anim_rofl2.gif Really like the Delaware river and am hoping to find some nice campgrounds along that river (we are in the Reading area) Are there any State or National parks around here that have Elect/Water hookup?____

I was able to answer my own question now being here for a few months..... I found French Creek State Park to be one one the nicest places i have seen.... It has many sites with electric hookup but no water hookup.... many water outlets around the campground and very wooded good size lots..... 7,474 acres with about 50 miles of trails and two lakes..... Very close to Amish Lancaster Pa and the VF Outlets in Reading Pa and Hopewell furnace National Historic Site.
