My wife and I have been members of NJACE for 
about 8 years during which time we both 
occasionally held officer positions in the club, 
consisting of Activities Director and Newsletter 
Editor.   During our years in NJACE we have met 
wonderful people in our club and in other Corvair 
clubs within the region.   At the start of 2007 
we quit the rat race associated with the 
corporate world and moved from New Jersey to 
north central Pennsylvania and purchased a 
campground.   The campground we purchased has the 
facilities to host many events from music shows, 
flea markets, car clubs, winter sports etc.

Recently we had a campground event, a chili 
cook-off, which was attended by about 15 NJACE 
members, 5 of whom drove their Corvairs from New 
Jersey.  As a result of the positive feedback 
from that experience, we are tossing around an 
idea of hosting a Multi-Corvair Club event here 
at the campground in 2008.   Following is a list 
of what the campground and surrounding community 
can offer.  Hopefully after reading this you will 
be as excited as we are about our idea.

1.      Sullivan County PA is a lovely forgotten 
place in the Endless Mountains offering scenic 
drives, covered bridges, quaint towns, majestic 
overlooks and one traffic light.  Yes, think 
about that as you drive to and from work this 
week, we have one traffic light in 478 square miles.   No traffic jams here.
2.      There are several local wineries and 
antique stores nearby and we are situated between 
two state parks
Worlds End and Ricketts Glen 
which offer great hiking, and beautiful vistas.
3.      The campground offers a large activity 
field that could be used for swap meets, car 
shows, ball games and other activities.
4.      We have 101 large wooded campsites.
5.      78 of our campsites offer water, 
electricity, cable TV, picnic tables and fire 
rings.  The rest are tent sites for the more 
hearty among us that don’t need electricity or 
water but they do offer picnic tables and fire rings.
6.      We have two rustic cabins which can sleep 
4 to 6 people (pets are permitted)
7.      We have two fully furnished cottages 
which can sleep 6 to 8 people (no pets permitted in the cottages)
8.      There is a bar / restaurant at the end of 
our driveway that has 12 hotel rooms and a 
private dining room for club events and a parking 
lot that could be used for a car show
9.      There is a B&B 3 miles away
10.     We have a large covered pavilion for cook-outs, awards ceremonies etc
11.     We have a 20 X 40 in ground heated pool
12.     We have other activities including 
horseshoe pits, volley ball, soft ball, hiking 
trails, a game room and a children’s playground
13.     There is a store / gift shop
14.     We sell fire wood, ice and have a propane filling station
15.     and more

We have fallen in love with this place and see an 
excellent opportunity to get Corvair clubs from 
the northeast and mid-Atlantic states together to 
meet here and have a great time.  If you and 
other members of your local club are interested 
or if you would just like to have more 
information please contact us at the email 
address or telephone numbers listed below.

We have the dates of September 5 - 7 2008 (Friday 
- Sunday) open for such an adventure.  Please 
speak with your club members and let us know your thoughts.
