Hickory Hollow Campground

Hickory Hollow is located in the town of Rockwood in Southeastern Pennsylvania and is an easy drive from Gettysburg.  This 75 acre rural campground is well-maintained with sites that can easily accommodate big rigs. There were not many trees in the transient section, but not a problem since we were there in the rain. (Thank you Hurricane Gordon!) The campground has a seasonal area that is in a separate section.  The staff was very courteous and helpful during our 3 night stay. The campground is not far from the town where we were able to find a Giant Eagle grocery store and, of course, a Walmart.

Since we visited the weekend before September 11th, we wanted to stop by the National Memorial for Flight 93 in Shanksville, PA to pay our respects to the brave souls who thwarted an attack on Washington D.C.  The National Park Service was preparing to open the Tower of Voices a 93 foot musical instrument featuring 40 chimes honoring each of the passengers and crew who chose to fight back that day.  This is the final piece of the memorial. The breezes will create a beautiful sound throughout the Laurel Highlands valley.
