Make it an Excursion to Erie, Pennsylvania

Take an excursion to Erie, Pennsylvania

 It’s rare to find any travel destination that entertains everybody in the family just as much, but a fall fifth wheel travel trailer excursion to Erie, Pennsylvania may just fit that bill. With gorgeous Lake Erie as your backyard, a stay at any of the fully equipped RV campgrounds in the area not only makes for some spectacular scenery, but travel trailer camping in total comfort as well. You’ll find hiking, biking, kayaking, boating, swimming, and water skiing there in the warmer months, and cross country skiing and ice fishing available in the winters. The Erie, Pennsylvania “KOA Kampground” has been in fact voted by KOA guests the number one “KOA Kampground” in America, winning the “KOA Kampgrounds Founder’s Award” in 2009 as well. It’s a “must see” for anyone with a fifth wheel camper.

Art lovers can browse thru the Erie Museum


For any fifth wheel travel trailer owner who also enjoys history, check out nearby Presque Isle as well. It is most famous for its lighthouse, built in 1872 and still functional. In addition, there’s an interesting Erie Maritime Museum as well, with the flagship “Niagara” on display. A replica of an actual warship used in the War of 1812, the Niagara also sails Lake Erie several times a year as part of a traveling history exhibition. For those interested in modern art, the Erie Art Museum showcases regional artists, potters and musicians throughout the year with numerous live performances and changing displays. It’s definitely worth a visit as well as you plan an Erie vacation with your Keystone Laredo.


  Finally, when all the museum visits, outdoor sporting activities and simply relaxing in your fifth wheel travel trailer get to be too much…take the kids and head out to the two amusement parks for which Erie is famous. Presque Isle has both Waldameer Water Park and Splash Lagoon. Your children will thank you…and you’ll find the experience a whole lot of fun as well! With a roller coaster, “thrill rides” and an enormous water park, Waldameer is a perfect way to kick off the school year for anyone with a travel trailer and a yen for family adventure. Splash Lagoon boasts a ropes course, a laser tag arena, a crafts center and of course, its indoor water park facility, with pools and water slide courses for every age group. You’ll be glad for such comfortable beds back in the fifth wheel when you return to your campgrounds…it makes for an unforgettable day  that will definitely have the little ones sleeping peacefully for long hours afterwards.
