Probably a stupid question- but I am getting conflicting info. PA private campgrounds are open- does that include cabin rentals?

Totally depends on the campground and location. We have camped twice already and will be heading out again this weekend all to private campgrounds. 2 of the 3 we had state park reservations canceled so we scrambled to get private. Anyway, some of them say yes with a limit of 1 family unit per cabin and others are just saying no. Seems every website has a COVID19 document to read that gives their specific info, or you can call/email.

Definitely going to be an interesting weekend. State park canceled our reservations on Monday for this coming weekend leaving us little time to adjust. After looking online and calling no less than 20 campgrounds (all sold out) we finally found a site. Hopefully everyone will be respectful and keep distance. My biggest concern is the kids. Last week the park we were had full 5 v 5 basketball games going, large kid groups playing some sort of hiding game (manhunt??), etc.

No miracle required, just don’t hug the guy in the next campsite...

Pennsylvania has a total estimated population of around 12,820,878.

To date, 42,050 people have been diagnosed with Covid-19. This says that .32% of the TOTAL population has been diagnosed with Covid-19, and/or have received treatment.

Of the people who have been diagnosed only 3.7% (1,597 deaths), died from it. The vast majority of these have been elderly, and had preexisting conditions. Not inferring that these deaths should be taken lightly. These are not huge numbers.

When compared to the total population, the number that have died represents a .012% of the population,

I think the numbers point out most residents and visitors to PA can go camping with a good sense that they will make it back home again NOT infected with Covid-19. Maybe a rash from poison ivey or some bug bites. So go camping and have fun.
This makes total sense for folks with completely self-contained RVs. We have been camping in our class B, so we use the dreaded restrooms. That's why we are hoping for a miracle. [emoticon]


Build a bathroom in a 8' cargo trailer and tow it behind the B =)

Went last weekend - so May 15-17. A Thousand Trails property in PA. In general it was handled very well in terms of distancing and people wearing masks. All facilities were closed so no problem with picking up COVID from a shared surface. The only staff interaction was getting my parking pass at check-in, which was handled at the entry shack and not in the office. Fishing was still 'open' on the creek frontage. I will say not everyone wore a mask all the time including me. We just weren't in close proximity to anyone else at any time. On paper you needed a mask if leaving your site. I'm much more concerned going for groceries than camping.
