@Campingbuddy:  Check out John James Audubon Center. Not sure if they allow outside camping but it is a rustic outdoor pavillion.

Audobon Center was way out of our price range. They have Jeffery Miller as the exclusive caterer. You might be okay because you have a small bunch, but you may find it to be more “the rustic-cique” look than the authentic look that you’re going for.

I’m looking for the same kind of thing, but my mother hates the idea. I looked into my summer camp, and her whole thing is that no one wants to be stuck hanging out together. Truth be told, there are very few people in my extended family that are into camping, so we might have to save that for the honeymoon. Having essentially 5 families (my mom’s fam, my mom’s step fam, my dad’s fam, his mom’s fam, his dad’s fam…) is kind of intense. I think they should just suck it up and get a long, but c’est la vie.

I think if your looking for a rustic camp type thing, you might need to go toward the Poconos, or leave the state….unless you’re having a dry wedding. BOOOO PA and your “no alcohol in state parks.” UGH.

*You CAN have alcohol in state FORESTS.  With 50 people, there may be a pavillion that could work for you.  Check out Wisner State Forest.  It’s up by Allentown, but you may find something nearby.

If anyone is interested in a campground on the Susquehanna River in central PA (near Lewisburg) – reach out to Diane at Steel Steeds. http://www.steelsteedscamp.com/weddings

No worries about drinking and driving. Alcohol is ok. Rent their RVs or cabins or tent camp.
