Found an old camp near me that's no longer used. It's about a mile up the road from where I am, and is about 500 acres of land with about a 25 acre lake.

Was able to talk to the land owners, who don't live close, and they gave me permission to hike the area and check it out.

Several old lodges and cabins are there. It served as a boys camp from the 1890s to as recent as 2012.

Looking forward to it soon. Will post pics.

More of detail of the map.

Red is the dirt road that I travel to the property. Only a handful of houses on the entire road.

Blue is the closed off access road to the camp which is overgrown some.

Grey is the 500 acres of the camp.

Antisocial: the post

Land ownership is public record. Anyone can find out who owns what.

>>664818

yeah sorry, im not trying to troll you or anything retarded

just curious how exactly you did all this, and how you contacted the person.
i cant realistically imagine this working

please give further details

As he said you can find land registery information easily and then just give them a call, plenty of land owners will allow you to go on their land, when I was a kid and shooting rabbits 90% of the land I shot on was by just calling up land owner asking if I could thin their rabbit population, I'd say 4/5 would say yes if you asked nicely especially guys with grazing land and no cattle on it at the time.

It actually is not easy for this case.

Susquehanna County, PA is ass backwards and does not have an online database. I am not going to the fucking county offices to look this info up.
>>
At my work we had a huge plat map. Shows individual properties in the county.

Found the land that I saw in question, and saw it was owned by a group called camp choconut.

Google camp choconut, found a page with some history of the camp, and a link to a Facebook group of former campers and staff.

Wrote a message on there asking who kept care of the land.

Several former campers reached out, including the family who owns the land and gave me information.

They were all extremely nice, and really open to me being about to take a hike and enjoy the property. I'm sure being a former camp it was enjoyed a lot by generations of campers, now it's mostly idle. They were happy of the idea of friendly neighbors enjoying the land.

Everyone I've reached out to, or has contacted me has been great. I have even have chances to backpack in and overnight camp there.
