Down by the Riverside by Tentrr

Official Tentrr site. Tentrr is a trusted partner of BookOutdoors.Down by the riverside . . .York County? You're in it.Lancaster County? You're looking at it.Connecting the two counties is the iconic Columbia-Wrightsville bridge, the most photographed structure in the area. Whether you're shooting from a smartphone or a Hasselblad, you'll find the everchanging interplay of light, shadow, and color on the bridge and the river exhilarating and challenging. Add the plant-covered, cut-stone piers remaining from the wooden bridge burned down by the Union to halt the Confederate advance during the Civil War, and you've got unending visual drama daring you to freeze and frame the moment.Separating the counties is the longest river in the eastern United States, the mighty Susquehanna: 400 miles long, sometimes dangerous, sometimes peaceful, always changing. Days on the river are like the people on its banks: no two are alike.Whether you choose hiking, biking, birding, kayaking, fishing, swimming, wading, or just chillaxing on a lounge chair watching the river flow, you'll never quite get your fill here. There's so much going on.The Susquehanna River is a world class smallmouth bass fishery. You can catch small channel cats and flatheads all day long just sitting on the bank. Looking for that pole-buster? Pretty much every local fisherman has a stretcher about a 40 lb behemoth they caught at night. They're all pretty tight-lipped about locations, so you're on your own finding that sewer pipe. There's a seasonal kayak rental almost directly across the river at the Columbia River Park with a concrete public launch for larger boats. Near the campsite, there's public launch for smaller craft adjacent to the John Wright restaurant. You can launch your kayaks or canoes at your campsite.Bald eagles, osprey, wading birds, waterfowl, and innumerable songbirds: they're all here. Were on the Atlantic Flyway. Bring your Peterson Field Guide and your scope or binoculars. Add squirrels, deer, turtles, raccoons, foxes, coyotes, possum, weasels and who knows what else.There's an excellent restaurant, the John Wright Restaurant, walking distance. Their special events sell out months in advance, so plan ahead. Also within walking distance is Burning Bridge Tavern with simpler fare and live music nightly. We've got three breweries in close proximity: Hell In A Bucket Brewing on our side of the river, also providing live music, and Starview Brews and Columbia Kettle Works across the bridge.Day-trippers can visit Amish country in Lancaster County. Gettysburg is an hour away. Spooky Nook: 18 minutes.We've got room to sleep 8 in our tents. Bring additional tents and the site can accommodate up to 12.You're exhausted, the day is ending, and its time to unwind. We've provided firewood, a couple stoves, great seating arrangements, and amazing night views. So pop a top, pull a cork, or get out the smores for the kids. Tonight you'll go to sleep in a plush, comfortable bed with a live-edge headboard, clean linens, and the sights and sounds of the river filling up your senses. What are you going to do tomorrow? Maybe do a little less? You brought a book, right?
