May 03, 1999

FAYETTEVILLE, Pa. - Heading to the great outdoors this summer at Caledonia State Park won't mean having to leave behind the television or stereo, according to State Rep. Jeff Coy.

Coy announced last week that the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources has awarded a $35,000 contract to install electrical outlets at about half the 185 campsites at the park near the intersection of U.S. 30 and Pa. 233 in Greene Township.

The announcement said campers "will soon receive their No. 1 request: electricity." The department awarded the contract to Gary D Construction of Shippensburg, Pa., according to Coy's office.

Coy's announcement said "Caledonia is one of the most heavily used parks and campsites in the state." Work on the campsites will begin this Saturday and be completed before the end of the month.

Providing electricity to the campsites is part of the department's Project Stewardship, a four-year, $100 million plan to improve Pennsylvania parks.

According to Coy's office, funding sources include fees from parks, state liquid fuels funds and the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund.
