RE: Camp Location Question

Would like to buy a camp or land within a two hour drive of western Lancaster county. I would like the location to be as remote/ isolated as possible (realizing that no area here is that remote), as well as have lots of good good hunting and fishing. Any suggestions on a good location that meets these requirements?

I'm 2 hrs 20 minutes door to door Montco to Sullivan/ Bradford line. Great area, remote with good hunting and trout fishing. You could probably be right around the same from Lancaster.

Thanks 25. I'm not real familiar with that part of the state, but it sounds like something very worth checking out.

Re: RE: Camp Location Question

Did you give any thought to Perry County? I live in Norhtern York County and it takes me 1 hour and 15 minutes to get to my camp. Camp next to mine is from Lancaster County. It takes them about 2 hours. There is alot of State Land. I can walk out my front door and cross the road and walk for miles on the Tuscarora State Forest or drive 5 minutes down the road and go for miles on State Game Lands.

Yep what yhducker said!

I have a camp in Clearfield county. It's about 3 hours from my house and as far as I'd want to go for just a weekend. I absolutely love Potter county but it's just to far for weekend trips. Perry county is a great option for ya.

If you continue to do what you're doing, you'll only get what you have gotten.
