The BCR B&B and Cabins at Camp Fossil Creek are available and currently taking reservations. There will be limited tent camping (20 sites) at BCR for $10.00 per night.  The sites are primitive; no electric or water.  Reservations are required for any overnight accommodations.  Contact us at 814-463-7606 or butler.peggy.s@gmail for more information and to make a reservation.

There are several other places in the Kellettville area for camping, including the Flying W Ranch, Kellettville Campground, Minister Creek Campground and primitive sites along the North Country Trail.

Remember, you don't have to camp to observe the fireflies.  You may just want to come for the evening events and view fireflies.  So, bring your lawn chairs, blankets and join us for the evening.
