    Amanda is transferring campsite 14 to me. Kelly is on my site so we have room for 2 more. I will probably bring an additional tent in case we get more people so we don't exceed their allowance

    July 31

    • Charity M.

      Sounds great!

      July 31

    • Amanda

  • Rebecca

    I just (finally) cancelled my reservation for site #24 if anyone wants to call and reserve it. My procrastination cost me $25.00 .....sigh. Have fun everyone and I wish I were able to come.

  • Jeff

    cancelled my reservation for site 11. really wanted to join but things aren't working out.

  • Jasmine

    Cluddy and Jonathan, are you still interested in sharing a campsite?

    July 29

    • Charity M.

      Jasmine, try messaging both of them directly. Sometimes people do not have new comments appear in their inbox. It also looks like Kelly is looking to share a spot with someone.

      July 30

    • Jasmine

      Yup spoke with Kelly, waiting on a confirmation then I'll have the campsite transferred.

    Has anyone successfully booked rafting? I see that the availability is 0/10 (no booking) and I am worried that it's not on anymore. Stefan and I are in, but don't want to pay for something that may not happen.

    July 15

    • Amanda

      Sorry for the ridiculously late reply. I have to cancel my reservation, so no rafting or camping for us :( If you know of anyone looking to share a camping site, Jasmine is now looking for someone. I can transfer the site (2 nights, 8/1 - 8/3) if it helps.

      July 29

    • Charity M.

      Sorry to hear that Amanda. I was looking forward to camping with both of you. But I understand.

      July 30

  • kelly

    I just found out I have that weekend off, is there still space available for the rafting? I know the campground loop is full so I will try to find a site nearby.

    1 · July 27

    • Charity M.

      As far as rafting goes: I had to change the reservation so I only reserved for two people. But they said if anybody else wants to reserve a spot for that day, to just do so by calling their number: +1 (724)[masked]

      July 28

    • Amanda

      Hi Kelly, Jasmine is looking for a spot because I have to cancel my reservation too. I could transfer it to both of you if you're still looking to share.

      July 29

  • Rebecca

    Didn't get around to dropping my site today...will def do by tomorrow afternoon.

    July 28

  • Rebecca

    Will be canceling site #24 reservation tomorrow....Dogsitter canceled. :(

    July 27

  • Saran S.

    Booked Site # 48 in cherry loop (sorry needed a bigger spot). planning to bring couple of friends too.

    Reserved for rafting (for 2 ) under charity's reservation number.

    July 24

    • Saran S.

      Hi Sandeep, Join me for what? because, its going to be my family + 2 friends in the campground, we might ride separate. Not sure yet.

      July 25

    • undsandeep

      Hi Sharon, i mean for car pooling. Ohh ok.

      July 27

  • Carol

    I went to Ohiopyle a year back - it's great. Wonderful hiking trails, the bike ride on the Allegheny is great too - you can cross the eastern continental divide (even as far as DC) but r.t. is probably too far to do in 1 day. Because it was early May, we stayed at one of the cabins near the yurts vs. camp. Everyone will have a great time. Note: check the park site about alcohol rules to know if you need to be discreet.

    I am about to book a reservation, anyone willing to share?

    I'd be interested in sharing a campsite if there is one available. I have a meeting in Virginia I'll be traveling back from and the park is on my back!

    June 18

  • Jasmine

    I'm looking to either fill an open camp spot or I will reserve a spot once I get one or two more people

    May 28

  • Jim K

    Are we required to use an 8x8 or smaller tent in the area for the group? I saw the note about a less than 8x8 tent. Their reservation site will let you choose a larger tent, my tent is a 10x13 dome. Is that a problem? How picky are they about tent sizes in the campsites?

    May 26

    • Charity M.

      I'm not sure Jim. I am staying in a Yurt. Call the park directly and find out.

      May 27

  • Amanda

    Hi Charity, I just tried to add our campsite to the Google doc, but it appears to be locked for viewing only. Would you mind having a look at it? Thanks!

    May 16, 2014

    • Charity M.

      I've been having a lot of problems with the Google doc. So we'll just do it the way we always have, Post next to your RSVP which site you will be on and if you are willing to share that site.

      May 21, 2014

    • Charity M.

      Meetup changed some settings and now the intro next to RSVP's reflect on every event, so just put your campsite number in the comments section.

      May 24, 2014

  • Kim G.

    Charity, is this a kid-friendly event?

    May 6, 2014

    Booked #24....will add to google docs this afternoon. :)
