Hickory Run State Campground

Our first camping trip of the season, AND surprise, surprise, it didn’t rain!  It is so wonderful when we can set-up and take-down when everything is dry.  Of course we appreciate this because we know what it’s like to do these activities in the RAIN!

Hickory Run Campground is located in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.  It’s a beautiful park, has a very unique ‘natural area’, the Boulder Field.  Hugh boulders covering a 65 acre area, and the boulders are ‘stacked’ twelve feet deep.  Very interesting, and of course the majority of our group ‘hiked’ across the field, or maybe hike is NOT the term to use, rather jumped and hopped across the boulders.

We also enjoyed waterfalls . . .                and flowers . . .

and hanging out at the campsite!  We even had a snake who wanted to hang out with us, although I told him he couldn’t stay!

     Can’t figure out where he’s hiding?

     Hint – somewhere on the truck.

Hope to get back to Hickory Run again some summer.  Lots of trails to explore, plus a sandy beach to enjoy.  By the way, we gave four stars to campsites 91 and 93, large, private sites with a short walk to the shower/restroom!
