Comsidering that this is in a pretty hilly area well inland of Philly, its a safe bet that the lake is frozen over hard and there is plenty of snow on the ground.

What he said. But it definately looks like the yard of someone with no dogs and no small children.

bbbamI - DH and I have a much smaller pond but with the same fountain device. Needless to say, it looks like a winter wasteland now.

Right you are brewer......

For grins, here's another angle. The backyard is kind of small, but big enough for us...

We stayed one night twice last year on our way to other things. We stayed before Memorial day and after Labor day. We wanted one of the sites without services since we are fully self contined, but they were not available for reservations and when we got there that whole section of the park was blocked off. I assume they try to compact the area they have to maintain in the off season.

We enjoyed our short stay even though it rained both times. We will probably stop in again, it is in a convenient spot for our travels in that direction.

Great landscaping, bbbamI.

My backyard is a barebones rooftop, but a good place for a suntan when itís not raining.

We were there after Labor Day and it was lovely. Next time you pass through the area, stop off for a tour of the Yuengling Brewery in Pottsville. They even take you into the caves!

When we were down their before Memorial Day we wandered around the area for awhile and drove through Pottsville. I'll keep it in mind, for another trip. My wife isn't into caves much, she is a bit claustrophobic.
