Report: My wife and I always love camping at Muskallonge State Park. We have been coming there sence the 70's. For the past 10 or so years we normally come up there in May and again in Sept. Because of the wonderfull oil slugs in America we now make the trip on in September only. Too bad for that area can use the money. I can't be the only person that has had to cut my camping traveling by 50%. We plan to head up in two weeks plus meet friends at the camp site.
