Rainy Ride and Dining in Promiseland

This weekend's adventure is a trip to Promise land State Park, near Greentown, PA. A large state park, it has gotten some great review at RV Park Reviews on the web. Ended up having to state at work longer that expected, we still got on the road by about 2pm. Slow ups on the Northeast Turnpike caused us to take about 3 1/2 hours to get to our campsite. We stopped at the Park office, and Am inquired about a local pizza joint. Before the ranger could make a recommendation, a fellow camper blurted out - Oh, you gotta go to Promiseland Inn! We took him up on his recommendation.
Was a new experience for the girls, they had never been in a small-town bar/eatery before. They were a bit uneasy at first, but took to the place once the food came around. We dined on appetizers of Perogies and "Nacho Grande" The perogies were wonderful, slightly crispy on the edges with doughy goodness on the inner parts, filled with mashed potato with a hint of bacon. Yummy. The Nachos were the strangest Nachos we've ever encountered. a fried tortia bowl, on it's side, filled to overflowing with a mix of lettuce, salsa, black olives, kidney beans, chili ground beef, and drizzled over with cheese sauce. strange, but we enjoyed every bite!
Then came out our main course, an x-large half pepperoni pizza. Thin crust, with the pepperoni almost crisp, it was very tasty. Washed down with either fountain coke, or local made birch beer, it was a great meal.
I'd recommend stopping by if you are camping in Promiseland.
Once back at camp, we watch a little TV, and then off to bed, falling asleep to the sound of the rain. Good start to the weekend.
