Memorial Day  Weekend

Memorial Day Weekend is the unofficial beginning of summer. A busy weekend in camp with friends and lots of camp events in addition to the evening bonfire activities on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Start the weekend early on Thursday evening with Fire and Flicks at the Rec Hall. Friday Night Drag Bingo will get you to “dress” up for the evening. Stick around for the bonfire and dance the night away. Start your Saturday morning with complimentary Blood Mary’s at the Cafe with the purchase of a full breakfast. Saturday evening ngs the Cumalot Party – “Alt Facts of Life” and later in the evening the Bonfire at the Rec Hall. Sunday afternoon at the Rec Hall is the Memorial Day Party and Show. The theme for the afternoon is “The Grand Old Opry”. The show audience and party goers are encouraged to wear their Sunday Best Grand Old Opera outfits. Sunday night beings another night of bonfire and dancing. On Monday, don’t be a rush to pack up and leave, join the Helping Hands Fund for Super Bingo at the Rec Hall.

Hillside Campgrounds – doing it right for 32 years!


Welcome to Hillside Campgrounds, a gay owned and operated camping resort, that has been serving the gay male community for 32 years! Open from May through the end of September each year, we offer a unique, private setting on more than 235 secluded acres in the Endless Mountain region of Northeastern Pennsylvania.

Whether your camping style uses a tent, a popup camper or a rental cabin, our experienced staff can help you decide between a site in the middle of all the action or a secluded site deep in the woods.

As a clothing optional, attitude-free environment, your experience at Hillside Campgrounds can be as busy or as relaxed as you want. Make new friends at the pool, hike the nature trails, explore our wooded playground, join the crowd at the nightly bonfire, or dance the night away in our disco. Younger or older, bigger or smaller, bears or leather, whatever your style of men, you can find a themed weekend to pique your attention.
