Historic Pennsylvania Canal
Pennsylvania's canals were built during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The canals were dug by men whose tools were picks, shovels and wheelbarrows. Hard work, poor living conditions and disease took many lives. But it was these burly men and their "water highway" that began the industrial revolution and opened the northwest territory.
Today one no longer hears the soft clip-clop of mule teams. Only the whisper of the wind sings softly among the wild flowers that cover the tow paths. Where once a brawny locktender watched for approaching boats, now, on a large stone that long ago held together the busy lock, a frog watches the approaching dragon fly.
Canal Boat rides allow you to experience some of the long forgotten canal era which moved travelers and goods before the railroads snorted and smoked their way across our nation. It's a beautiful and relaxing excursion for campers of all ages.

Very nice level spots. Far enough out to be private but close enough to town to run for stuff. Office hours are lacking but maybe that's off season hours. Always things to do. Overall a nice place to stay.
