There are a few “Airstream Only” parks scattered through the country. We almost stayed at one in Texas but we went a different direction. This time we were so close we could not pass it by. We were also looking for a place to relax after over 2 weeks of going and seeing things (Williamsburg, Yorktown, Jamestown, DC, Gettysburg, Johnstown). The price is $25/night or pay for 6 nights and get the 7th free. Go!
Pen Wood Airstream Park is in the Northwest quadrant of Pennsylvania, just south of Clarion and I80. It is a very nice, homey, well-kept park. Full hookups are provided and there was a steady stream of Airstreams coming in and out while we were there. Many of them on their to Escanaba MI and the WBCCI International Rally.
We used this time to unwind and take care of things. The usual one is laundry (FYI the laundromat there has EXCELLENT WiFi!). We do that once a week and Clarion was a great little town to do it in. We also took in a couple of movies while we were there. We threw in a day trip down to the Pittsburgh area as both of my parents grew up in the area. We found my Dad’s old house easily as we had the address and had seen previous pictures:
We actually chatted shortly with the owners that were outside but they did not seem impressed with the fact that my father grew up there.
We tried to find my mother’s old house but they did not have a specific address in those days so we could not narrow it down. We took pictures of almost every house on that street but we still don’t have a definitive house.
After the week was up we had to go somewhere else, see where in the next post.
Here are some Penn Wood pictures:
