All in all this sucks for tourism in general, but hey, if the Sara Coyne Campground was irritated with the Ravine Flyer, now they are side tracked with the fact that they can't have any business until this is settled. Presque Isle is completely locked off from all outside tourists and residents. All businesses and cottages are blocked off from usage, also. This is causing a huge uproar.


Then take the family to Waldameer and Waterworld!

Can't beat the fact that the parking is free, you can bring your own food in (and even grill your own food), and spend some quality time at a great amusement park and waterpark with your family! Plus, you can bring Gramma & Grampa and not have to pay a dime for entrance at the amusement park, for them to spend time with their grandkids!

I love Presque Isle, and enjoy taking the kids to the Tom Ridge Enviromental Center, but I can always find something inexpensive and fun to do in Erie!

Things are settled, for now. But all you fine folks should know that within 2 years, when you come to visit any of our fine PA parks, you'll be paying much higher tolls on the Turnpike (I-76, 276, 476) AND I-80 will become a toll road.

Best part is, the toll money will be used to support mass transit systems "throughout the state" (translated 99% to Philly and Pgh plus some spare change for the other 65 counties), so the interstates will still be in their usual crappy condition. Have to pay for the graft, corruption and waste somehow!

^When the Feds stop spending all of our money overseas, maybe the states won't have to dig QUITE so deeply to provide basic services like parks, schools, libraries, and roads...

Then again, maybe not... ;)

the mass transportation hasn't passed....yet, and assuming it does, toll booths on I-80 will be years away.

I can tell you from expirence thatif tolls are put on I-80, the coast of EVEYTHING coming to the northeast will go up. That's a MAJOR truck route.

Besides the tolls sub-thread, thanks to all for responding.

Thanks to Jeff and Crew for not closing this one out.

My girlfriend and i camp in PA a ton. The thought of being ousted during a vaca' would suck. thanks again for the responses.

I can see the PA government has their priorities in order, as always.
