WILLIAMSPORT - The Northeast Campground Association made a stop in Washington County as part of its 2007 Great Escape.
Approximately 50 members of the group visited and met at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park as part of an annual conference.
The group enjoyed a lunch of Maryland fried chicken, hosted by Ron and Vicki Vitkun, owners of Williamsport Jellystone Park. Lunch was sponsored by Leisure Systems, the campground's franchisor. After lunch, everyone grabbed a golf cart to tour the campground and newly added water zone features.
"It's a real feeling of pride to be able to show your business off to your peers," said Ron Vitkun. "You could see the 'wow.' There's no question they were impressed."
Vitkun said he and wife Vicki were honored to host lunch for the group.
"It's great to be able to sit and talk with that many of your peers at once. These are people who share the same business concerns we do."
