    First time camping in Hershey

    The first time my two best friends, my twin brother and i went to Hershey high meadow we knew we were going to have a blast. Once we had arrived to the campground we all headed to the front desk to get our key to the rustic cabin where we stayed since we don't like sleeping in tents and can't afford an RV. The employees are so nice and helpful too. There was also a shopping area/ gift shop, and an arcade which was awesome. Now the cabin we stayed in had 1 bed, 1 bunk bed, mini fridge, TV, microwave, air conditioning, heat, fire pit to cook food, and a cabinet to put clothes in. When we drove the car to our cabin it looked pretty small but actually was big inside. Once we unpacked our stuff we all headed down to the swimming pool where we swam for at least 2 hours. the campsite has 2 pools. One big pool and a smaller one for little children. The life guards are well trained and really friendly. my friends and i would play water ball or cannon ball competitions. While swimming we met a family and started talking to them and playing water games with there kids who were nice.
    Once we finished swimming we went to the arcade to play some games for 45 minutes. My favorite game was DDR( dance dance revolution). Once we finished that we went to the store/ gift shop which was next door and got our tickets to Hershey park and candy. The gift shop was so awesome because they sell anything for your tent, RV, etc... Once we finished with that we headed back to our cabin for lunch then we decided to play some sports at the big field which is near the pool and playground. We all played basketball, volleyball, catch with a tennis ball, badminton, and Frisbee.
    Night time is the best because you can start your campfire right next to your cabin( there are 3 types of cabins. Rustic, extended, and deluxe cabin which has a bathroom/shower, kitchen, 1 bed, bunk bed, sofa bed.) I bought myself a grill at the campgrounds gift shop for 20.00 and used the fire pit for Smores then bond fire.
    If anyone likes Hershey park the campground has a shuttle bus that takes you to the park then back to the campground.
    I would definitely recommend this campground because its a great place for children, parents, the elderly, etc..., the employees are so friendly too, its near Hershey park and you will enjoy it there. if not then give it a try. I will be going there for the 3rd time.

    The Blog is short as we are mainly just driving to get down to Florida. The weather had gotten colder and there are few campgrounds left open. So for these reasons combined with my (Lorrie) poor health made the decision to get headed to Florida for some R & R time. The last week has been a whirlwind of moving and driving....we forget where we are in the mornings! While driving thru Boston the motorhome started making some nasty noises. Since we ...

    ... the Amish live. It was strange seeing the girls in their dresses and the men in their hats and suspenders. It was a little surreal and a strange mix of time as their horse and buggies passed by the McDonalds and there were stalls for horses next to parking spaces for cars. Besides the intense smell of horse poop in the air the towns were all very nice. The farmland looks picture perfect and the trees along the roads were all still nice reds and oranges and ...

    ... all). Crossing this bridge, we noticed that both sides of the river were
    covered with factories, loading docks, rusty barges and boats and all things
    unpicturesque. The rain was drizzling and traffic was picking up as
    well. We were directed by Madame GPS to take the Jersey Turnpike.
    We pulled up to the toll booth and it must have measured us and decided we were
    too tall to be a car and spit out a ticket for a ...

    We explored the area around Lancaster which is made up of lots of farm land and little villages, as well as covered bridges. Saw several Amish families going about their daily business, many of the businesses are owned and run by ...
