Welcome back everyone to our Lancaster PA road trip part 6 and picking up where we left off last.
From here we were back on the road again (thanks to Norma pointing us in the right direction) and heading toward Williamsport, PA. There we took some time to tour the community and drive along the Susquehanna Riverwalk. Then it was off to settle in for the night at Splash Mountain Campground in North Cumberland, PA. It was an interesting little campground undergoing a lot of construction in preparation for the summer travelers. The owner noted being delighted that it was nearly full of workers employed by all the gas and oil companies sprouting up in Pennsylvania because of the booming oil trade and fracking policies. The campground had all the creature comforts we needed so we settled in after a wonderful day of discovery.
Waking refreshed and enjoying a couple cups of coffee it was off to find a quick bite to eat and check out the sights and sounds of the area. We were only a couple hours at best from Lancaster and were in no hurry other than to enjoy ourselves.
We left the campground around 9 a.m. and took our time meandering along country road after country road to Shikellamy State Park in Selinsgrove, PA. This place was awesome. The Overlook sits on a cliff 360 feet high giving spectacular views of the Susquehanna River and the surrounding area below where the North and West branches of the Susquehanna River converge. After leaving here we discovered the Keefer Station Covered Bridge a little further along in the town of Sunbury, Pennsylvania. It was one of 8 covered bridges we would discover on our journey. While in Sunbury we had a wonderful picnic lunch while sitting in the town square as the sun shone and the village was busy with its routines.

What a full day it had been and exhausted we figured it was time to settle in and Flory’s Campground in Ronks, PA was the place. It was a small mom and pop operation and the owners were so friendly and the place had everything and anything we needed or wanted. It was funny because we only booked for 2 nights because we weren’t sure if we would change campgrounds but the 2 nights turned into 8.
