Smile Keystone S.P. For Labor Day Weekend

I was surprised at the number of open sites they still had when I made the reservation today. I even got a pet site. In the past, it could be difficult to get a campsite on a non-holiday weekend and impossible to book a holiday weekend unless you reserved it long in advance.

We haven't camped at Keystone since 1987 so I'm sure a lot has changed over the years. One change I've noticed is that more than half the sites are electrified. On my 1987 Keystone map, none were electrified. Also of interest, was the campsite fee- $6.00/night. My camp fees for the three night, Labor Day holiday weekend was $87.50. WOW! Bring back the good old days.

Truthfully, there's not a lot to do there but because of its close proximity to Pittsburgh, it's been rather popular state park in the past. The park is small (1,200 acres) and the lake is too (78 acres). However, It's a great place to put out your hammock and have a "non-laborious" weekend

For more information about the park, click on the link below.

Did you and Chris have a non-laborious weekend at Keystone?

Yes, but I didn't put up the Hammock. Storms passed through the area Friday afternoon (before we arrived) followed by high winds all day Saturday. I didn't even unfurl the awning. With nothing up outside, anyone who walked past our site probably thought all we did was park the TT and went to a motel. It was still windy Saturday night so we cooked inside. The temps dropped into the 40's. I got out our electric heater to keep us comfy.

Sunday was better. The sun came out from time to time but when it hid behind a cloud, you felt cold enough to need a sweatshirt. I foraged for some wood and built enough of a campfire to grill some shrimp for dinner. There was a guy that would ride around the campground every afternoon selling bundles of firewood for $5.00. I bought one. It lasted us for the entire evening. It had warmed up enough by the end of the day that we could just leave the screen door closed. While Chris and I sat by the fire, Purrscilla watched over us from inside the trailer.
