Cranberry Run Campgrounds is a "Party Friendly" campgrounds, so we don't have to worry about getting crazy! Alcohol and campfires are allowed, which is not a usual case for most campgrounds, surprisingly enough And there is
no "quiet time" or curfew, which at most campgrounds is an amazingly early 10pm! So, party on, Dudes and Dudettes! :)
[NOTE: Their website indicates a "quiet time", but it is NOT enforced in the area were we camp, so no worries...]
If you have never been camping before, this is the perfect opportunity, as this campground has full facilities (restrooms, showers,
convenience store, laundry, etc.), so you will be able to rely on all the necessities. Additional information about Cranberry Run Campgrounds and the surrounding area is included below, and at their website:
If you are interested, please drop Stephen ([email protected]) a note, and let us know that YES, you do want to join in the
Adventure! On our previous "Excellent Adventures", we have had 45+ people, and a great time was definitely had by all!
Come join the fun and partying in the great outdoors!

Stephen and Teddy's Excellent Adventure would be cheap at any price! But, you get a 2-night stay at Cranberry Run Campgrounds for only $35/pp for the weekend! Compare this to staying 2 nights at the Hunt Valley Marriott (now around $250)! $35 covers the covers the cost of the actual campsite itself for 2 nights. Food and beverages, which you need to bring or buy there, are extra, but these naturally will run you a lot less than the cost of your average hotel food (since you will be cooking it yourself. :-)
Note that the only mandatory item for this camping trip is a tent, one that you are bringing or one that you have prearranged to share with
someone. If you haven't camped before, we can provide you with a list of suggested items to bring as a guide.
