The campground opens friday afternoon.
If there is interest, or water I will be driving out Friday early, otherwise Friday evening. It has historically cost $10 to enter the festival, and $10 to camp. However in practice if you camp there, you will pay $20. Last year we stayed at Quemahoning lake campground. Which we pick will be based on interest.
Based on water, interest, and skill levels this can be a down river, a play boating (my personal favorite), or even a creeking trip (If creeks in area become watered).
Eating arrangements will be at each persons discretion. I usually bring something for one day, and eat out or the festival food the other night. There are not a lot of restaurants in the immediate area.
The park, which serves as festival and campground (but only for this weekend!) also hosts a play wave that is lit up to all hours of the night. If you’ve ever wanted to play in the water at night, this is one of the safest and funnest ways to be introduced to night boating.
The Stoney creek river is class III-IV mini canyon. Class IV only if the water is high. The run is pretty continuous and the rocks are hard, but very pretty :) In general, 4ft on the gauge (5ft on AW) is an ideal level and the run is somewhat easier than the Lower Yough, with more play, especially in the first couple of miles.
