    Jim Thorpe, PA

    I'm doing a whitewater rafting trip this weekend and wanted to "hang out" the night before, I was wondering if anyone has done any hanging in or around Jim Thorpe, PA and if so....where?

    Preferably I want it to be a backpacking trail and not a campground with campsites, let me know.

    I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I've brought a big bat. I'm all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!

    If I weren't heading to Vegas, I'd be there. Haven't hung there yet but it's quite a beautiful area. Looking forward to the trip report Rowan65.

    While I'd really love to go camping, I think Vegas could be in it's own world of a good time, and I wouldn't mind being there either, haha.

    Gonna be "hangin" at the blackjack table Syb? Good luck buddy.


    Though I have only been through JimThorpe and not stayed It looks like a fund trip that makes me envious. There is a few camping places on the 1st website but iam willing to bet you are looking for something right on Lentz trail.

    If I didn't have bad luck, I'd have no luck at all. We're planning on bringing $100 with us to gamble knowing full well that we'll lose it. Yup, part of me would rather be "hangin" in Jim Thorpe
