WINTER DRIVING ALERT: **For winter driving directions, it is IMPERATIVE that you follow these instructions. GPS and cell phone directions may attempt to take you on another route for the final 10–15 miles to camp. If your GPS takes you via Rabbittown Road, Dutchtown Road, and/or PA Rte 864, that is the WRONG way. A major section of this alternate route has NO WINTER MAINTENANCE (no snow plowing) and so is closed and inaccessible from mid-November through late March.**
