    As you enter the park from the south on 534, you see the Camptel property (expensive and two night stay required), but I kind of remember a motel before that.  Can't seem to locate it on google maps, etc.  Just want to stay over Saturday night.  I'll also try for a park cabin.  We have a little tent, but I'm getting too old for that s***.

    This is probably the one you mean:

    Hickory Run Motel
    2544 Rt. 534
    Albrightsville, PA
    570.722.3336

    It used to look really run down, but seems to be looking a bit better these days.

    There's also an EconoLodge and other options on PA 940 just north of the park.

    We ended up doing a splurge on Camptel and are paying too much to "glamp" in a tiny house/container.

    I'll be interested in hearing what you think of the place.  It's gone from a handful of unts to a whole bunch (30+ I'm guessing - it's hard to tell from the road) since I moved up here.  They look pretty nice from the outside and I'm curious to hear how they are on the inside.

    The oddly named Gotham Fireside Bar and Grille is in the camptel property and claims to have food and drink.  Looks like it might be fun to try.  If you are camping, you probably won't be able to have a campfire.
