The boat was a 20' pontoon with a 90HP yamaha 4 stroke and a tube. I had no qualms about the rental fee on a weekend day. We had 5 families that were willing to chip in on the rental so the price was far more reasonable than just about any other family outing with teenagers. In all, we had 23 people out on the boat at different times throughout the day, and everyone enjoyed themselves immensely.
I am pretty sure they offer a honeywagon service. The dump station was set up perfectly, allowing 4 trailers at one time to each have a station.
I really cannot recommend this CG/resort enough. We will definitely be back.
As one poster mentioned, we had a few mishaps, but the whole experience far outweighed the mishaps and we had a great time.
Sorry you aren't local. We have a large quad bunk and our kids are growing up and away, so we are starting to look and scaling down.
We could have traded...
We have a 2006 Crossroads quad bunk with a front bedroom for my wife and I. Nice layout, and it weighs 5700 dry, runs about 7000 loaded.
You may have to forego a slide, but the quad bunks are out there in your weight range.
I just wanted to let everyone know how wonderful our trip to Lake Raystown resort was this past weekend.
This was our first time to the area, we had several families, with folks in Class Cs, TTs, Pups, Tents, and even a couple of cabins.
EVERYONE had a fantastic time and the facilities were first rate and top notch.
The teenagers loved the waterpark, the lakefront is beautiful. We didn't use the beach because we just swam from our lakefront campsites, but the camper beach looked very nice.
The store was well stocked although the firewood (while "reasonably" priced at $3.60 per bundle)was still to green and difficult to burn.
Our friends ate dinner at their restaurant one night and said it was nice.
We rented a pontoon boat for the day ($500+ gas) after spending most of the day on the lake without any issues, our engine gave out about 3:30 in the afternoon due to some sort of fuel problem. They sent a tow boat out to bring us in, and after verifying we did not run out of gas, they waived the gas and rental fee COMPLETELY! Talk about impressive customer service! Things go wrong, it is how you react to them that sets apart a good organization from a bad one.
There was a storm that blew in and destroyed 2 awnings (mine was one) after a micro-burst blew gusts over 60 mph out of nowhere.
The staff lent me a ladder to assess roof damage (not much thankfully) and even stayed to hold the ladder for me while I worked on putting on some Eternabond patches.
BTW, Eternabond with the cloth back will actually patch a tent in the pouring down rain.
Again, kudos to the entire staff at Lake Raystown resort for making our Memorial Day weekend memorable to us and to our friends and family! We will definitely be back.
I've been towing my 32' Crossroads Bel Air for a few years now with my 2005 Chevy Express 3500 van. I have the 6.0 L with the 3.73 rear (7700# capacity) and my TT weighs 5700 dry so I think I am in good shape weight wise.
I never had any real issues at all, I have recommended this van for towing to many people of the years.
This past weekend, we were towing from Baltimore to Raystown Lake. We followed google maps (bad call) and found ourselves on some pretty steep, winding uphill grades. On one, we were behind a school bus and never had a chance to build up any kind of speed.
Towards the top of the hill, my temp guage started to move up quickly, eventually triggering the "check dash guage" warning chime and light just as I was able to reach a pull off spot.
I put the van in park, cranked the heat, and in a few minutes the guage returned to normal and on we went.
I noticed the remainder of the trip that we had to do crank the heat proactively as we went up any kind of hill with a decent grade or length to keep the temperature from spiking again.
We took a better route home, avoiding many of the hills, but we still had problems on the hills we had to climb.
I also felt like I had a bit less power than normal, but I may have just been overly sensitive to what was going on.
Does anyone have any thoughts?
