Thumbs down 2015, Oct 4-8: Lancaster county Pa

I see on the 2015 Fiberglass trailer rally map that there will be a get together in October in Lancaster county Pa. No more information is to be found, at least not by me. I live close by to this campground so I went there to get more info. I was told it will be between 10/4/2015 and 10/9. They will only accept 20 reservations for this and already have 11 booked. Although the campground owners seem to be very nice people this campground is very plain and in my opinion rather un inviting. There is even a rule that prohibits camp fires. A rally in Lancaster county Pa is a great idea and there certainly are a lot of campgrounds here to chose from. I'm sorry but I just can't pay 50 dollars a night to stay in a place like this. I am not a sardine and I don't like this type of camping. Maybe if I find a rally at a more enjoyable place I will attend. I hope I'm not being to harsh, I really don't mean to be.

Might have been more appropriate to drop Joan (the host) an email about it as opposed to posting here. Obviously 11 folks are fine with it.

Or, 11 folks are unaware.

When in Lancaster county Pa and you hear: (Cliptey Clop Bang Clipety Clop Cliptey Clop Bang Bang) you will have heard an Amish Drive By Shooting.

No Jim I have not tried this camp ground you mentioned. There are a lot of nice camp grounds in this area to chose from. When I look for a place to spend three to five nights or more I look for certain things. A camp fire is a must. A little separation between campsites is also high on my list.

I would have to agree. Only 20 reservations and no campfires? Not for me either. Not knocking anyone, but for me camping is all about campfires. We stayed at Country Acres Campground in Gordonville back in October. It's only 9 miles from Lancaster. This was a great central located friendly campground. Also gives guest a free Amish bus tour and every evening a little Amish girl would pull her wagon through the campground selling fresh bread, cookies and pies. Everyone from Class A's to tents and with a few small cabins also. Couldn't ask for friendlier people.

We attended this rally last year (it was our 1st rally) and we had a blast! Were not new to camping but we are new to the fiberglass culture. The owners of this campground, Florys, were extremely nice. This was our 1st time at Florys but not our last, we pre-booked for this year's coming up rally. It would have been nice to have a camp fire, but the park and restrooms were clean and well maintained. Nice level sites that back up to a working amish farm. It was neat watching the amish men & boys working the farm with the horses and trailer. The area has a lot to offer. The Strasburg RR is only minutes away, a lot to do & see. Joan did a great job hosting and it was a true pleasure meeting everybody. Hope to meet some more members there.

Gary and I agree with everything Dave said. It was a great rally with great people! We have some friends joining us this year, so, yes, Dave, you will be meeting some new members. I'm sure Joan has some nice side trips planned again for this year. It may not be camping in the woods, but it sure beats a hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed watching the Amish buggies and scooters go down the road, too. I wonder if they allow propane fire pits? I'll have to give them a call. Looking forward to October.....Jona

So sorry you can't get in on the action! Yes, it is Oct 4-8 this year. Calendar has been updated. As part of their good neighbor policy with the Amish, Flory's does not permit open campfires due to the smoke, which cause horses to panic. The closeness of the campers helps build a community and we love to foster this! Lou and Claudette, the owners, provide us with an enclosed pavilion for free as part of the camp fee. On cool October nights this facility helps us host the tech talks, pot luck dinners, yard sales, welcome activities, etc. We get it for our exclusive use for 4 days. Complete with refrigerator and 2 freezers. Other campground we tried charge $55 rental a night for poor facilities, on top of the same camping fee, which we have to pass on to our campers.

We are limited to 20 camp sites, which we usually can fill if you plan early enough to come! If you live close enough, would love to have you this year- if even for one event.

I grew up in the area and have tried several other camp grounds. Can't have it all but this one works for us at this time. I certainly will look into ones mention in the postings too. I appreciate the responses!
For the schedule of events as they unfold, please contact me

That means that at least 2 fire pits will be burning.
