You had to be there! World's End is a beautiful state park in Pennsylvania, or so we had been told. We were forced to travel on to World's End when our favorite state park campground, Rickett's Glen, was filled. It was a murky, muddy, sloppy, smelly weekend. Five kids, 2 of their friends, and the hapless couple, Bill and Connie, toughed it out together. A highlight of the weekend was the Smelly Sneaker Competition. Later we stopped on the way home to throw all the sneakers into the woods (our worst littering violation ever). We just couldn't stand the smell any longer!

Good Old World's End

Here's to good old World's End --
It's just around the nearest bend!

For clammy beds, it can't be beat --
it's the finest place for muddy feet!

Into your bed the water will seep --
but the mud is only ankle-deep!

If your tent begins to float --
just pretend it's a real boat!

Every camper likes dry wood --
but you take the bad right with the good!

Don't bring toothpaste, don't bring soap --
for being clean there is no hope!

The food is great without a doubt --
once you wring the water out!

Delicious hamburgers made by Pop --
with juicy mosquitoes right on top!

The outhouse is the latest thing --
but don't forget -- a clothespin bring!

So pack your gear and pack it light --
You'll leave here after just one night!

Oh, here's to good old World's End --
it's just around the farthest bend!

You brought back some memories of my teen years. Mother and Dad took me to world's end state park and we went out boating. It was just on a day trip, but now I remember it was a beautiful day for boating and I loved the quietness and my family. Never been there again, but often would think I'd like to take another trip there.

Give me a mountaintop or the high desert anyday. World's End sounds a lot like Clear Lake in Northern California.

Thanks for the warning!
