'FISH-IN 2000'
May 1 - May 6, 2000


By Jim Birkholm, Editor FAOL

Ron Koenig and Sue Cox did some major scouting for the Fish In 2000 and have produced the following list of accommodations. We received a heads-ups from them this past week, which says the cabin rentals and campsites need to be reserved by anyone wishing to attend as soon as possible as there can be a year's waiting list in some of the park areas.

Once you make your reservations, let us know by email and we will start an "I'm going list," with your campsite number or hotel/motel name so others can find you.

These are state parks all located in Centre County near State College. You can call 1-888-PA PARKS and reserve spots up to 11 months in advance.
