Bears, Beef & Booze Weekend
Join your fellow Bears, Cubs, Otters, Chubs, Chasers and Admirers for a weekend of events.
Start Saturday morning at the cafe with a free Bloody Mary with a full breakfast, then play Bingo at the Rec Hall. Caring Communities will be in the Rec Hall for HIV/STD screenings and PreP services information. Darryl, the leather craftsman, will be on the deck of the MaN Store – specializing in leather harnesses and leather repair, snaps, buckles and sizing issues. Saturday afternoon is all about the hair – comb up that chest, and head down to the pool for Hairy Chest Contest & Pool Party. Saturday evening is the 10th annual Purple Party at Bear-A-Licious (Hillside Heights). Decorate yourself up in your best purple outfit and socialize with an evening of beer, cocktails and snacks.
Sunday is pool time, with the Potluck dinner at the end of the day.
Hillside Campgrounds – doing it right for 33 years!
Welcome to Hillside Campgrounds, a camping destination that has been serving the gay male community for 33 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.
