Thousand Trails

There are several Thousand Trails campgrounds in PA. But as you would imagine, most are seasonal. If we end up in a campground, we tend to want to end up there during the off season. It doesn’t always happen that way, but it is what we prefer.

Timothy Lake South is open all year in PA. We arrived in March, and it was very quiet and very open. Verizon and ATT service are enough to work, but they aren’t the best. I have used the service for Zoom calls, and very graphic intensive work, but there does seem to be some lag once in a while.

Timothy Lake North – This campground is seasonal, and a little tighter to get into for big rigs. Can be done, but not as easy as Timothy Lake South.

Gettysburg Farm RV Campground – Cell coverage for both ATT and Verizon is on the weak side. If you need to stay connected, I would highly recommend a cell booster. Here’s the one we have and have used for years!

Boondockers Welcome

Joe and Kathy’s Host Location – Kutztown, PA If you’re a member of Boondockers Welcome, this is a great choice! Any size rig, and plenty of room.
