We are sitting in the gray, fading daylight at our Ives Run campsite at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers campground at Hammond Lake, Pennsylvania, enduring an endless drizzle that makes the low sixties temperature reminiscent of summers in Germany. We aren't here to suffer, so we turned the heat on in the camper. Never mind it is the twentieth of July.
Here again, however, the official brochure sometimes lists services differently from what is available. Beech only has sewers for part of the loop, not the entire length. Each campsite on those loops has its own service monument directly beside the pad, but the Hickory loop has to share service monuments. The campsites at the separate Pine camp, about a mile away, have only dry, or primitive sites, but several of those sites are directly on the water. Every site is reserved for at least the next three weeks, and again, we see why. This is a beautiful location, and a beautiful campground.
