We are a family operation that caters to those seeking a tranquil and enjoyable trail respite. The bunkhouse is a smoke and drug free place for hikers to have a peaceful refuge and refreshing break from the trail. Currently offering a bunk house with six beds available, a 1958 vintage camper, a.k.a. “Trashy,” is also an option for 2 hikers looking to step back in time for some “glamping.”  We can board a maximum of 12 hikers.  Stay includes hot outdoor shower, all sleeping/bathing linens included, use of chemical privy, delicious dinner & breakfast, rides to/from the Route 183 trail head & a daily resupply run for $40 per/night.  Other options include laundry ($5 load wash/dry) and mail drops (free for hostel guests).  Bunkhouse is seasonally heated & AC based on weather, and has excellent Wi-Fi, DVD player with movie selections, and Bluetooth speaker for your tunes.


Currently accepting cash, PayPal, and most major credit cards/debit cards (a 2.7% convenience fee is assessed for credit cards.)  For an option we can shuttle to several nearby resupply areas, urgent care, and airport/train/bus stations, brewery tours, restaurants, etc.  Slack packing packs are available and arrangements can be prearranged or made during your stay if you decide later to lighten your load and stay a while.


We are located less than an hour drive from Harrisburg or Allentown areas (midway between Duncannon and I-476 - NE Ext. of PA turnpike) which puts us in a great location to cater to section hikers/slack packers looking to complete a large section of PA AT from one location.


Cell phone service from the trail and the hostel is good dependent on your service provider. For more information and mail drop address
