Im currently on bicyle stuck in Rockwood Pa. due to heavy rains that soaked everything I had. I was camped at Huskey Haven Campground and as I was leaving I told the owner I was headed to a hostel to dry things out and spend an extra night but he insisted I stay in his rec room area to to dry things out and sleep there for free. He has a nice primitive campground with nice amenities like washer/dryer,tv,internet,showers,wood stove, game room across the river so please check them out if you pass this way and need a place to camp. Great hosts.

Great report. I think you will find that most of the business people along the trail and the trailheads are the best. Enjoy your ride.

That;s great to hear... Husky Haven is on my short list for stops...

Just to follow up. I left Husky Haven the next day only to have my chain break and derailer mess up 6 miles up the trail. The bike shop in Rockwood (Lynn) fixed me right up but the day was shot so I went back to the campground and the owner just looks at me and chuckles. Yes, another day at H.H. I did make it all the way to Harpers Ferry though. I cannot tell people what a fun adventure this is for anyone, young and old. I met one fellow, 76 years young that just had a new pacemaker and was doing the whole thing out and back. Nothing but a wonderful experience both GAP and C&O
