Be Prepared: Please be prepared to be self-sufficient. Have your own provisions such as first aid kit, food, water, extra clothing for unplanned weather, etc. Have your EMERGENCY CONTACT SHEET completed and in your backpack; it may save your life, and help reach someone who greatly cares!
Pace: There may be activities when the group is either slower or faster than your current ability. Please know that because this is a group activity, it's hard to accommodate everyone's pace perfectly. Our desire is not to leave anyone, however there have been times when it is in the best interest of all to split up. Please do your part by knowing your own abilities, communicating with the organizer head of time if you would like to start early and have us catch up or fine with finishing on your own.
Summary

 We have reserved a good sized campsite at Ohiopyle state park from Thursday, July 20 to Sunday, July 24. Wanted to open it up to other GO guys as it's a big, relatively private site that allows up to 15 people. 

There's a lot to do including biking paths/trails, good white water rafting, a (small) zip lining course, and nice local vistas.  Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Water is also very nearby and worth seeing if you've never done so.

Ideally, participants need to bring a tent or buddy up with those who do, but we will have a spare if it's needed.  Asking 20.00 to defray site cost and share the cost of raft if you want to white water raft as a group (only if you wanted to join in). There are places to eat locally, but we will have camping stove and gear to cook out. It's a pet-friendly site, so people-friendly, dog-friendly dogs also welcome. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

Ohiopyle state park is in south/southwestern PA off of route 381. We're actually coming from Philadelphia and from that area fastest way is to take the PA turnpike west. We are happy to give suggestions/answer questions, but if you check out the Pennsylvania state park website (http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us) you can get detailed directions to choose the best route from your locale.
