“Once I was sitting at Lindy’s and Gertie’s on the southside of Chicago and a semi-truck driver came in.  We got to talking and I asked him what is the most beautiful state in the country.  He looked at me right in the eye and said matter-of-factly ‘Pennsylvania.'”  So recalls a random person sitting in a coffee shop in Nashville, Tenn.

And, indeed, it is beautiful.  History, rolling hills, greenery, mountains, rivers, and all those bridges make Pennsylvania a unique destination in this country.  A place that utilizes that nature, as well as adds its own twist to it, is Lake-In-Wood Camping Resort in Narvon, Pa.  Lake-In-Wood is not a typical campground; it’s a resort with some very unique accommodations.

“No one wants to stay at just a plain numbered site,” says Jerome Bakker, manager at Lake-In-Wood Camping Resort. The Double Decker Bus is just one of many different accommodations present at the campground. The Double Decker Bus was found at a junkyard in Harrisburg, Pa., Bakker tells the Buzz.

Lake-In-Wood was originally a tobacco farm on a picturesque piece of property with woods, a lak and rolling hills.  In 1969, it was turned into a campground and then in 1976 the Bakker family bought it and continued expanding it into more of a resort.

Eventually it was bought by a corporation – Sun RV Resorts, something Bakker says is a good thing.

“Corporations have become a big part of the camping industry and luckily for Lake-In-Wood, we were purchased by Sun RV Resorts which believes in putting money back into the park,” he says.
