Lakota Wolf Preserve (http://lakotawolf.com/)

This is why we are rallying here.

The wolf preserve is up in the mountains about 8 miles from the campground and is a must see if you have even a smidgeon of interest in animals.
Last time we were there there were about 5 or 6 packs and approximately 30 wolves. This is probably the closest you can get to seeing wolves in a "as best it can be" natural habitat that protects both the wolves and the gawkers.

The preserve doesn't exactly do group tours, but they do make group arrangements. As a collective, it would probably be better for us to go as a group on Friday.
Tours are 10:30am and 3:00pm. Individually, you can go any day but Monday (closed).

Groups are slightly discounted as "every 10th person is no charge" Cash only for groups, cash or check otherwise.

There is a poll at the top of the thread to gauge interest in the tour. Please vote only if you are attending the rally.

***** UPDATE *****

The Wolf preserve isn't really a "we cater to groups" place, although there is a slight discount for parties of 10 or more. Not sure how to work the buy 10 get 1 free yet.

The Wolf Preserve Tour, figure on a couple of hours from the time you leave the CG until return.
Tours are available at 10:30 and 4:00

The Friday (weekday) tours must have a confirmed appointment, group or individuals.
Also must be a confirmed appointment for a group tour on Saturday or Sunday

As we get close to the date I will ask again for a headcount.
We have to be at the Preserve 1/2 hour before the tour.
The Preserve is approximately 8 miles, 15 minutes from the campground.

If the group prefers the morning tour, we should plan on leaving the Rally campground at 9:30-9:45

The Delaware Water Gap, has many things to do and see. The National Recreation Area (https://www.nps.gov/dewa/index.htm) covers 70,000 acres,
Besides the park itself, there are several wineries in the area, museums, recreation facilities like water parks, zip lining etc.

Bushkill Falls (http://www.visitbushkillfalls.com/) touts it self as the Niagara of Pennsylvania. That might be pushing it a bit, but it's a nice park and the waterfalls are - well waterfalls.

Google things to do at the Delaware Water Gap (https://www.google.com/search?q=things+to+do+at+the+Delaware+Water+Gap&oq=things+to+do+at+the+Delaware+Water+Gap&aqs=chrome..69i57j69i60.65608j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8)

Limited hours yes, for now it is a couple of hours on Thursdays.

I would suggest, email all your info, give it a few days then call.

About the same for us Jon, since we will be coming from Whaleyville.

As the crow flies, I don't think there is a closer campground in Jersey for you to travel to. It is few miles south of 80 at the border.

And don't forget - getting into Jersey is easy, it's the getting out part that hurts.

Yes sir. Missed her first rallies last year. (NY & MA). Unfortunatly, she'll probably only be in Goshen this year.
PA Rally- she's in HS play
Hershey- first week of school
MD Rally- marching band
NJ Rally- marching band
NY Rally- Jazz Band

Going to try to get to Masseys Landing in August with her. Might have to change her room in the ElkRidge to a Den. She can sleep on the couch. Lol.

You 'heard' as in past tense is correct.

Thanks to our Twinkie eating governor, we are about 30 cents a gallon higher now.
Although looking on the gas buddy app, some of the best prices in the state right now are up by the Gap.

I'm posting just so I can keep up with events. Unfortunately we'll be enjoying the sun and sand in MB. Good luck with your maiden rally!!!

Nancy's the one who turned this around!! She says the other day "how far out of the way is it to go Deb and Duane's rally? Think we can change our dates at MB?"
I guess we now know that answer!!!! See everyone there...

For the fence sitters - the date to release the sites back to the campground has come and gone - but - the CG is leaving the sites penciled in for now as the only traffic they have really seen so far is the Heartland Group.

Bummer. Heartland better start finding some dealers in the NE. We're down to a few. I see Camping World is pumping out the Heartland travel trailers. Not sure if they do many 5ers.

We like some of the Cedar Creek units. I think they're more for full timers though.

We have to travel 125 miles up to Wilkins for warranty work. Otherwise I drive 10 miles to Susquehanna RV, primarily a Forest River dealer. I've had no problems scheduling or their performance.

All the sites are back in. But, earlier arrivals may be able to pull through because of the layout.
There are a couple of low branches, not sure if they are too low or not, so look first.

Should be plenty if spotters to assist.

- - - Updated - - -

The CG has a gate that is closed when the office is closed. It is coin-token operated after hours.

If you will be arriving after 5pm, call or text me about 1 hour out and again upon arrival and I'll meet you at the gate with a token.

For those going out for the evening, either pick up a token st the office or see me, I should have several on hand.

Most of the attendees have our numbers, if not PM me.

Our Heartland Gives back choice is the Lakota Wolf Preserve.
Between the 50/50 and other donations we will be sending the Preserve a check for $249 (and maybe a bit more).

The restaurant never got back in touch me about our little "tax" issue.

I did take a picture of my receipt and will be forwarding that to the State. A little less attitude from the manager could have prevented that.

We received a post card from the Lakota Wolf Preserve thanking us for the donation.
Donations of any significance get a small token in return, T-shirts, sweat shirts, framed wolf pics etc (depending on the amount).

We elected to not receive anything and turn back the gift to the preserve.
