Awesome Autumn VII

by Terry Whitesell  Region 4

October 3 thru 7, 2019

Explore western Pennsylvania from Bear Run Campground (C012602), 184 Badger Hill Road, Portersville, PA  16051; (724) 368-3564;

A private campground boasting "Beautiful Moraine State Park at Your Doorstep," they've been centrally located (less than 1 mile off exit 96 of I-79) since 1975.

Butler County, the birthplace of the Jeep, has over 790 square miles to explore.   

Most of the time will be spent pursuing your own interests, & you may wish to go biking, hiking, boating, shopping, golfing or disc-golfing.  Visit the Mars Applefest or the Concordia Oktoberfest in Cabot.  Travel the Butler County Beer Circuit for a variety of craft beers made locally, or sample wines from 5 wineries.

On Friday, we'll take a narrated cruise on Lake Arthur in the 37-passenger Nautical Nature enclosed pontoon boat. 

History buffs may want to visit Saxonburg, founded by John A. Roebling, the inventor of "wire rope" used  to make suspension bridges, most notably the Brooklyn Bridge.  Follow George Washington's footsteps on the 1753 Trail.  Attend the Portersville Steam Show Fall Fling.  Take a self-guided driving tour of the Barns of Butler County.

Go to or call (866) 856-8444.  I'll provide lots of info & maps at check-in.

Thursday night we'll meet for a potluck dinner (meat provided).  Friday and Sunday night we'll eat at different local restaurants (pay on your own).  Saturday night we'll be at the campground for a catered dinner.
