French Creek Park, PA

 frenchcreek1

French Creek SP is located in SE PA, about 15 miles SE of Reading. One or two loops of the campground are open all winter, which is why we first visited, stopping for a night while on our way back north after wintering in Florida.

The B Loop was closed this year, so we had to choose a new site in the C Loop. Site 47 suited us just fine - more open than most.

In spring of 2014 we planned to spend a night here, but we arrived on a Friday and there were no available sites. So we headed into Pottstown and spent the night at Wally World.

Date of visit most recent visit: Apr 2009

During our first two visits , we selected Site B-44. in 2006, during our visit in early April it was in the 30's and snowing; in 2007, also in early April, sunny and 76 !
