Campgrounds Near Hershey

My niece will be in a dance competition at Hershey next July so we are looking for campgrounds in the area. They'll be staying at a hotel in Hershey but we have the freedom to camp further away since we'll probably only watch her perform only one day so we don't have to be THAT close to Hershey. I'm thinking up to about an hour away would be good. A bonus would be if it were EAST of Hershey but it doesn't have to be. We'll have 3 campers and must have water, electric and sewer with activities in and around the campground for 10 year old boys and adults. Must also be dog friendly. Here's what I found so far. Drummer Boy Campground Adventure Bound Oak Creek Anything else I can look at?

RE: Campgrounds 3-4 Hours From NYC?

Pet friendly camping cabins might be tough to find... not aware of any. Mike Recently got back from Normandy Farms and my sister was able to bring her dog to the cabin. Frontier Town in Maryland also has pet friendly cabins and that's a place that looks like it may fit the bill for us.

RE: Campgrounds 3-4 Hours From NYC?

You are an optimist on the hour and half. Hour and a half on the Cross Bronx sometimes. But a little over 4 hours from GWB is Turning Stone Casino AND RESORT Exit 33 NYS Thruway. Closer in is the Delaware water GAp at the west end of NJ I80 https://www.nps.gov/dewa/planyourvisit/developed-campgrounds.htm Do not know about cabins Haha, we always leave home by 5am for trips like this and usually are OK.

Campgrounds 3-4 Hours From NYC?

We are on Long Island and looking for a campground about 3-4 hours away from NYC for next summer. We have 3 campers but also need a cabin rental that is pet friendly. Campsite and cabin must have water, electric and sewer. Campsite and cabin must be dog friendly. Must be a variety of activities for kids and adults in and around the campground. There are 4 boys age 8-11 who love sports. Also 2 couples around 40 who don't have kids as well as grandparents who would enjoy a night at a casino but the casino isn't a dealbreaker. We've been to Lake George RV Park and Normandy Farms and these sure fit the bill. We'll probably go back to both of these parks but want to try somewhere else first so we're looking for ideas. I'd love to go south or west of NYC but that's not a dealbreaker. I'm also open to expanding my 3-4 hour radius but not by too much since it takes an hour and a half just to get away from NYC.

RE: Normandy Farms Activities?

We got back from Normandy Farms a few days ago and it was great. The park was immaculate and there was plenty for my niece and nephews to do all day long. One of the best days was actually last Monday. It was an open practice for the Patriots so we watched that for a bit. That was pretty cool even though we are NY fans. Then they had free prizes when spinning a wheel. There were also active events for the kids. They had a section where kids could kick field goals and throw footballs through hanging car tires. Then they had a section where the kids ran through dummies before diving onto a mat to catch a football. It was awesome and the entire thing was free for all of us. Very cool day for them. My brother took his family to Boston one day and I went to Cape Cod and had THE best NE clam chowder I've ever had. It was a great trip for everyone. My only complaints were that the roads were gravel which made bike riding a little difficult for the kids. One of them actually took a nasty spill. Also a lot of the sites are in direct sunlight so you didn't want to sit outside all that much when relaxing. We found ourselves inside the camper with AC for that. Other than that, it was awesome.

RE: Normandy Farms Activities?

Do we stand any chance of getting a signal with my HD DirecTV dish or should I leave it at home? Most sites are pretty open to the sky, but, there is cable at most sites as well. Do you like hiking? Lots of great hiking in the area. I do but I don't think anyone else who is going would join me.

Buying Recreational Land Near NYC

I live on Long Island and love it but it's expensive and congested. I pay close to $9,000 a year on about 10,000 square feet of property. It's crazy. My girlfriend grew up hunting and fishing and loves the outdoors. Her dad even leases land somewhere north of NYC to go hunting and he's got a rustic camper there. He's getting older and this might be the last year he leases it. I was just curious to see if there were suggestions on what areas and what websites should I look at? I'd like to put a camper or have there be some sort of smaller cabin there. There should also be places to hunt, fish and quad on or near the property. I'm clueless about where to start. Any ideas?

RE: Normandy Farms Activities?

When we were there years ago they had a camp host that ran a tour bus to Boston and all the sights Old Iron sides etc. I think she's being restored right now and isn't open to the public. :-(

2013 Ram 1500 5.7 Oil Filter

I finally got around to doing my own oil change on my truck but I had a question about the oil filter. I accessed it from the passenger side wheel well with the tire still on. Is that the proper location to do it from or can you get it from below? My jackstands kind of prevented me from getting under there and it was getting dark with skeeters coming out so I didn't want to fudge with it too much. If this is the proper way then I assume removing the tire would help too.

Thanks for the info everyone! I just checked and we'll be there the week of one of the car shows so that's something I'd love to do!

RE: New Tires For Tow Vehicle...

So I started towing with the new tires at 40 back in April. Every trip I up them another 5 and I'm currently at 60 and it finally feels good again. I doesn't feel as good as the stock P tires but it definitely feels a LOT better than my initial tows with the new ones.

RE: Normandy Farms Activities?

Thanks. We'll have plenty of vehicles. 2 pickups with two campers and 2 cars for everyone else. We already have 2 camper spots and one cabin booked for a week in August.

Normandy Farms Activities?

We are taking a big family vacation there this summer and are looking for area activities. We want to do some things together but we don't want to have to do EVERYTHING together. :-) It will be my parents who are late 60's and in fact my Dad will be turning 70 while we are there so we'd like to do something in the area to celebrate. 5 adults in their late 30's-mid 40's. A 14 year old girl and 4 boys who are 7,8,9 and 10.

2012 Ram 5.7 HEMI Oil?

My brother is using this truck to tow his 8,000# camper. It's used almost exclusively for towing to local campgrounds of about 25 miles away being the furthest. We are starting to get into doing our own oil changes and were wondering what we should use for oil and filter. Any suggestions?

RE: Black Tank Fills Quickly......

I think there's a misunderstanding here so let me try again. We currently have a 32.5 gallon black tank and not a 22 gallon tank. I guess I still have our old camper in my profile. When we leave the campground we'll dump, we'll use the sewer flush, we'll close the dump valve to fill the tank with fresh water and dump again. We actually do this a few times. We have a clear connector so it's easy to see what's coming out of the black tank. Even after filling and dumping 2 tanks of fresh water you'll still see some tiny bits of debris coming out but the water is clear. We always try to keep our black tank as clean as possible and 4.5 years later everything still works well, including the tank meters. No issues there. Right after our last dump we'll put water into the black tank either by the sewer flush or the toilet itself for about 15 seconds and then drop in a tablet. That was when we leave the campground we only have a tiny bit of water in the tank along with a tablet. The next time we go camping a few weeks later we'll have three people in the the camper. After about 3-4 days our 33 gallon black tank will be full by looking at both the meter and by looking directly down the toilet so we'll dump, run the sewer flush for a few minutes with dump valve open, then close the dump valve for a few minutes with the sewer flush on and then open the dump valve with the sewer flush still running. Once you can tell that the only water coming out is from the sewer flush then we'll close the dump valve, leave the sewer flush running for 20 seconds to get some water in the tank and then shut the sewer flush off before dropping another tablet down the toilet. That means there's only 2-3 gallons of fresh water in the black tank and about 3 days later it will be full again. My gripe is not really about that. My gripe is about that last day when we really do a good cleaning of the black tank. We'll dump it but then it seems to take 15 minutes to fill up the black tank again whether it's by using the sewer flush or by simply standing on the foot pedal constantly. I understand that in daily use you are adding more stuff down the toilet but the numbers just don't' seem to add up. In reality, how much liquid is going down when you do a #1? 2 cups of liquid?

RE: Black Tank Fills Quickly......

Some RV's have the bathroom sink plumbed into the black tank. This is done to make sure that there is enough water getting into the black thank. Are you using your bathroom sink a lot ?? Interesting. I'll have to see.

Black Tank Fills Quickly......

There are usually 3 or 4 of us when we go camping. On a 7 day trip we will usually have to dump the black 1/2 way through the trip because it's near the bottom of the bowl. When we are leaving after 7 days the tank is almost full again but I'll step on the pedal to get some more water in the tank before dumping. Now here's my issue. We'll dump the black when we are packing up to go home and then run the black water flush line for a few minutes with the black valve open. This gets a lot the **** out. Then we'll close the black and shut the flush off. We really like to clean our tanks so we'll have someone stand on the toilet pedal for a few minutes to fill the black up with fresh water again. Filling up the tank this way takes FOREVER! I can't believe how long it takes, 10-15 minutes of standing on the foot pedal to get the black filled up again. Why does it take so long to fill up this way when it only takes 3 days to fill the tank up under normal use? Yes, I understand that more than just water is going down under normal use but the numbers just don't add up. Does anyone else experience this?

RE: Mail delivery

I'm a mailman by day and a camper by night. Yes, mail is supposed to only be held for 30 days at the post office. If you go down to the post office and speak with the postmaster then they might be able to work with you to extend that but that's a case by case basis and depends on the person.
