Governor Tom Corbett has proclaimed the month of May as Recreation Vehicle and Camping Month in Pennsylvania for the twenty-third straight year. Governor Corbett states, “The unique sites, history, and culture of Pennsylvania can be discovered by the entire family from the comfort and convenience of recreational vehicles,” and he encourages “all citizens to pursue their passions and escape with their families on the road across the farthest reaches of our state.”
That’s a perfect reason to visit the Thousand Trails preserves in the Keystone State which offer a home base to explore the culture, history and unique sites that Governor Corbett references.
