Pa has some nice state parks. Many have electric and some have full hookups. Our favorites are Locust Lake,Pine Grove Furnace and Bald Eagle Lake.Promised Land Pickeral Point is great too. We also have some good state historic parks like Drake Well Museum. Pa Military Museum and the Train Museum in Srassburg near Lancaster.

Agreed but very hard to get into if you want hookups. We are terrible planners and life long campers at Promised Land and a few others and we struggle every year to find a site. If you can get in they are great assuming you like the more Rustic and natural environment.

My Favorite PA state park is Ricketts Glen. Dry camping, but bathrooms with showers. A pair of streams run through the park with 22 waterfalls and hundreds of cascades.

As far as Western NY, Niagara Falls is popular. NY side you have Goat Island and some casinos/shops/restaurants. If you have a passport, you can walk over the Rainbow bridge into Canada to see Clifton Hill tourist area--lots more to do and a great view of the American Falls.
Letchworth State Park will impress you, most feel it like it should be a National Park.
From nearby Watkins Glen you can take Rt. 14 north--you'll see many Finger Lake wineries on this road and ride along the shore of Seneca Lake-the deepest of the Finger Lakes. Most of the wineries have tours. It'll take you to Geneva then to I-90.
If you get the chance, visit the Adirondacks. This State Park is bigger than Yellowstone, Yosemite and Grand Canyon combined.

With all of the ice cream lovers that I am sure are on here I can't believe no mentioned stopping by Ben & Jerry's in Vermont for a factory tour on the way to all of these great destinations. The walnuts are never fresher in the Chunky Monkey than at the factory!!

If you like history Martine Ferry WV. Erie Pa. Niagra ship bow is on display. Ohio football hall of fame, rock and roll hall of fame. NY Ft Niagra is outstanding. Bring passports and jump over to Canada enjoy great people clean cities and low crime.

bigred1cav Thanks for the suggestions. We have been to the R & R hall of fame. My husband is a big music fan. We will have to pass on the football not interested, only in fishing and hunting. We are considering Canada. We will have a small dog with us this time so not sure. But we are bringing passports. We have been to the Canada side of Niagra Falls. Thanks.
Greyhook - Didn't realize the Adirondacks state park was that big. Sounds like a must see. Thanks for all the info. I'm getting excited for this trip. It will be our longest since we just retired. Thanks

Kzoocamper - Can't miss Ben and Jerry's. Love ice cream. Thanks All


I wanna go where I haven't been, but still wanna see what I've seen again!

Debbie: your dog must have an up-to-date rabies vaccine to come to Canada. We pack the certificate for our cat in with our passports. We've only been asked for them once or twice but they can ask.

My wife and I were in Ok in Nov. she had to go to Mecca. Three days in Pawhuska and Pioneer Woman Mercantile. Three days because we had some motorhome trouble. It was not a bad adventure.

Fishing? Depends on time of year. Lake Ontario has some great COHO Salmon fishing and the best Walleye fishing in the world is the western basin of Lake Erie. FYI the Great Lakes hold 20% of all the fresh water in the world.
