Snow Shoe City Campground, PA

 snowshoe01

The Snow Shoe City Campground appears to cater to the long-term camper. Out of a hundred or more sites, 4-6 shared sites are set aside for the over-night camper. The campground is a convenient stop-over for I-80 travelers in the middle of Pennsylvania, but there's not much at the campground for which to stay longer.

There are two lanes which could fit 2-3 RV's each, depending on size. There are 30A hookups and shared water faucets. This little area is near the entrance to the campground, right across from the small office at the gate. The office was closed and locked when we arrrived; someone came around at suppertime to register us and collect our fee.

Date of visit: Sep 2011

Not sure why someone would want to make this their seasonal home or get-away - there's no lake or mountains nearby.

Most sites are well-shaded.

I wonder how long this little rig has been here?

Here is the other end of the two lanes set aside for the over-night visitor.

The bathhouse is pretty spartan and old-fashioned, but it does have hot water. The showers had only a single faucet, so I'll assume you have to settle for a pre-set temperature. Not sure how thorough its cleaning is - there was a bit of that old bathroom aroma to the place.
