Last Chance Camping Trip at Codorus State Park Hanover PA

If you didn't get enough camping in this Summer, here is the last chance this season to camp with the GREAT group of people and members of Hiking Around Baltimore.

If you are not a camper, Codorus is close enough to come out for the day to enjoy kayaking and canoeing at Lake Marburg. You might even decide to join us in the evening at the campfire. It is little over an hour's drive from Baltimore City.

Hiking, boating, and disc golf are some of the activities available at the park.

Non- electric sites are $27 with a minimum 2 day reservation

Electric sites are $33 with a minimum 2 day reservation

There are no Yurts or Camping Cabins available for this weekend

Bring a dish to pass, enjoy some great laughs, and gather around the campfire to round out our last camp trip.

If interested in sharing a site, tent, or carpooling please post on the site.

    I had a really great time - and it was nice to meet all of you! I'm already looking forward to next year!

    I just posted info about another camping trip for the weekend of Oct 25 at Rickett's Glen State Park. This is the most amazing hike I have ever done on the east coast - a 7 mile hike with 22 waterfalls!! Please check out my posting, and I hope some of you can make it!!

    Hi all, sorry for the delay, but here is a link to the recipe for the chocolate, caramel, pretzel bacon bark. I recommend baking it for 4 minutes instead of 5 so the caramel doesn't burn, and I added a half pound of bacon, cooked crisp and chopped in a food processor when i but the chocolate on...I made it again for a party this past weekend and it worked better if you don't chop the bacon too fine.

    Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

    Top 10 things about our camping trip at Codorus:
    1. Purple Chair Shenanigans
    2. Unseasonably warm weather & NO RAIN!
    3. Delicious food including choc bacon bark, sushi, corn, and a dizzying array of salads.
    4. Skulls and flames in my rearview mirror
    5. Cigars
    6. Telephone & storytime
    7. Cally (sp?) and Gracie
    8. Dan not getting arrested for shining his flashlight in the ranger's face.
    9. Hiking across a spongy lake
    10. Allen having high tea with the vultures in Mary's Furnace.

    All in all this was a weekend filled with laughter, fun, and friends. Can't wait for next year!

  • Shannon F.

    Hi happy campers, Looking forward to our trip in 30 days! If you have not booked a site please do so soonest. If you need to change your RSVP please do so as there are some on the waitlist.

    Remember to bring WARM clothes. It gets very chilly at night so hats, gloves, and long underwear are a must for the chilly nights. We typically have a group meal Saturday afternoon so feel free to bring a dish to share along with anything you want to grill. Please let us know what you intend to bring so we do not have 3 potato salads or trays of deviled eggs. ;)

    Thanks! Can't wait!

    Shannon

      Hey Shannon, Thanks for the heads up. Although its not my first camping trip, it would be the first time with my own equipment. I think I will wait until the next camping trip to try this out. Hope everyone has a good time!

  • Serena W.

    Hi everybody, I RSVPd some time ago, but I'm starting to feel like I need a Camping 101 course before taking this trip.

    1 · August 7, 2013

    • Shannon F.

      Hi Serena
      If u have never camped before & do not feel comfortable it may be good to check bass pro shops or rei to see if they have any intro courses on camping. There's not much to it but it's important to pack the right gear incl bags clothes & food. It is chilly at night this time of year so plan on that. We camped here the same weekend last year &it was brisk. One must be a little more hearty to camp in October. Let us know what u decide. :)

      August 7, 2013
